And your obsessive need to always make this same old negative nancy comment every time Neil is quoted has the same grating effect.

So Neil has been quoted numerous times?  Once a decade should be sufficient.

A)  We Okies gladly claim Baker.  There is a good chance we will have a statue of him.
B)  As much as I love a good Sooner/Longhorn brawl, this just doesn't move the meter.   Maybe if the Horns are ever relevant in football again it would be worthwhile.

If he leads OU to #8, I'd be glad to see a statue to Mr Mayfield.

Agree about relevance and Texas.  It'd be nice to see them up again, but right now they're just another good but not great opponent on the calendar.  Not much happening there and the Terps just hung 51 on them at home so I don't see 2017 shaping up any better.

Texas isn't even a good but not great opponent.

Hopefully someday we'll get it together, but this doesn't look like the season.

Sucking sucks.

Slow start but OU pulled it together.

Okie St, Texas and TT all had good games yesterday.  TT and OSU come in back to back weeks on the OU schedule. 

In fact that five week run starting with Texas, then KState, TT, OSU in Stillwater, then TCU, looks pretty hairy.

I just pictured a horny toad with Bridget Bardot hair.
The thought almost made me smile.  
If it had been wearing a bikini too, I might've grinned.

TCU cheerleaders cannot be measured on a 1-10 scale.  It has to go to 11.

Interesting cross-section of Big 12 cheerleaders shown here:

http://www.foxsports.com/kansas-city/gallery/college-football-s-finest-cheerleaders-from-around-the-big-12-092215

OU clearly has the cutest gals, at least in these photos, in my totally biased opinion.  And, I'd go for WVU for second. 

Not sure what's going on in Kansas, but perhaps they're going for substance and not looks ...

You gotta be kidding me.  Now Dylan?  What is it with Neil Young people also liking Dylan?  Holy manic depression.

I've always liked and respected Dylan but really done a deep dive into his discography.  I think I'll get started on that.
Meanwhile, BOOMER!

Supposedly Sam Cooke was so impressed with Bob Dylan's "The Times, They Are a Changin'" that it inspired him to write "A Change Is Gonna Come."

I've always been a big fan of "Tangled Up in Blue."  I love how well the lyrics tell a story, conjure images, provoke thoughts and fit together so well.

Plus, I've always had a fondness for songs about strippers.  'Main Street' by Bob Seger is, of course, a great song about about a stripper.

But you know, the very best song about living with a stripper and being obsessed with a stripper is probably Norah Jones' "I've Got to See You Again."

My favorite song about a peeler was written by Ray Wiley Hubbard.

It is entitled: "OU sucks."

If anyone should require a list of recording artists that are more musically redeeming and recreationally rewarding than Neil Young and Bob Dylan, I have about 28 pages I could send you.

At least Bob Seger was mentioned above.  A welcome deviation.

[member=21]CharleyHorse46[/member] tangled up in blue is far and above my favorite Dylan tune... Bob Seger is the greatest songwriter who lived by my reckoning- not only his own stuff, but things he's written for others... they don't come often like that. 

[member=15]utee94[/member] Ray Wylie Hubbard is also amazing... he taught me how to finger-pick 'his way' at his joint out in Beverly.  I've got a page in my notebook where he drew it out for me... if you play, I'll be happy to share.  it's not that it is coveted because of what it says, but it's coveted because Ray Wylie freakin' Hubbard wrote it out with his own hand and handed it back to me.. He lives near Kevin Welch, who is a friend of mine, and who is a tremendous talent when it comes to songwriting- and his style of music suits me.  I've learned a lot from that crowd- and the biggest thing I learned is:  I needed to pursue other means of binding body and soul...

Bob Seger's a great songwriter.  I'm not sure if he's the greatest ever, but he's up at the top.  Other favorites of mine that might belong on that "Mount Rushmore" are Willie Nelson and Prince.  We could go on forever of course.

And I'm a huge fan of Ray Wiley Hubbard.  I've been lucky enough to see him play tons of times around Austin, since he tends to hang out with Jerry Jeff Walker and the Gonzo folks.  I've met him but never interacted with him personally, that's very cool that you got to hang out.  And no, I'm not much of a picker.  My dad is great, and I used to hack around with him a bit, but it never really rubbed off, sadly.

It sounds very pedestrian, but I can't think of any songwriters to top Lennon/McCartney.

When I was a yonger man, it seemed important to myself and my peers, to have mental lists up for discussion and under constant scrutiny and modifications.

What's your favorite book?  Who's your favorite author?  What are your top ten favorite movies? Who are the best songwriters?  And the ever marvelous, if you could only have one album on a deserted island, which one would it be?

Such fabulous exercises for getting to know friends better, assessing their tastes and showing off.

But as I've gotten older, I've actually become more open minded and less opionated.

I don't like the same things I liked when I was 20.  Sometimes I don't even like the same things I liked 6 months earlier.

The world is too full of possibilities to ever pin oneself down.

Today Sammy Cahn is my favorite songwriter.  Tomorrow it might be Khalid.

Wait. Did I say Sammy Cahn?  That was so 5 minutes ago.  Now, I'd swear it's Burt Bacharac.

Or Kris Kristofferson.

Or Tyler the Creator.
