No, there's no more yuppies because things have changed.

So very true COJohn - from a likeminded WAJoe - in fact this might be my fav of Bob's tunes (an Oscar winner at that) and one that I feel I can share with others that aren't "fans" of Bob's varied work. 

As one who wasn't a fan of Bob Dylan until around the turn of the century, and sure there's a lot not to like about his work/style whatever - you could spend a lot of time trying to read and interpret his lyrics.  It's a very vast and deep well. 

Happy Friday to all my fellow RPsters and long live BillG & RebbecaG

Seems I really like BD as long as he doesn't touch that harmonica. This one actually reminds me of Leonard Cohen, which I consider a compliment for Dylan :)

Things change...especially when your on the road. Bob is on the road touring. The never ending tour. 

Therefore, things are changing. It's all about space and time.

Wolford said, "And, yes, Things Have Changed is one of Bob's major songs of the past 20 years."

 

I fully agree and bumped it from an 8 to a 9+,...maybe a 10.  Dylan at his most insightful best.  Truly a comment on these perplexing times.

As for Wonder Boys, both the book and the film are outstanding.  Story goes that after the success of L.A. Confidential, the director, Curtis Hanson, was told he should use his new found clout to make the film he's always wanted to make, since he might not have another chance.  He chose to do Wonder Boys.  The screenwriters completely captured the essence of the novel, knowing what to keep and what to toss.
And, yes, Things Have Changed is one of Bob's major songs of the past 20 years.

The Wonderboys book was terrific--typical early Chabon with loose ends all over the place. Agree about Kavalier and Klay, an epic story where he pretty much hews to one plot line with a central theme, something he ordinarily treats casually. Summerland aims at a younger audience, but is similarly epic in scope with a wide variety of subject matter. The Yiddish Policemen's Union, The Final Solution, and Gentlemen of the Road are all great fun. I was little disappointed with Telegraph Avenue, even if it did evoke a West Oakland/East Berkeley that I know fairly well.

Was the film any good? My brother knew Michael Chabon at CMU and I've often wondered whether Wonder Boys was worth reading. "Mysteries of Pittsburgh" was, from my limited and indirect knowledge of that time and place, spot on...but then I heard too many stories about Chabon being an absolute jerk that I didn't want to read more of his stuff. And the premise of "Kavalier and Klay" sounded completely idiotic. 

A good Dylan song..."I used to care, but things have changed." Yeah, know that feeling.

And for those who may not have noticed, when he says "The next 60 seconds will feel like an eternity" he is counting down the remaining time in the song as there are indeed only 60 seconds left.
 
Having read this comment a number of times, I finally had the opportunity to confirm that the last 60 seconds does indeed finish the song.

Dylan is just so hot right now. Yeah rough voice but lyrics incredible. Cohen also, it's not an either or situation, both are incredible. I call Dylans latest works Roadhouse music, most off it is based on dance rhythms that's why my foot taps so much.

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

This is how Dylan describes the final days of these times. We live in a crazy world. It is unbelievable, it’s strange but true. We live in times where man commits crime and crime don’t have a face. He is locked in tight. He does not feel at ease at all in this world where the hatred never ends and yet there is no escape. He feels like a prisoner in a world full of mystery, like a stranger in a strange land, out of range like a spaceship way out of its orbit.

I'm not real interested in who likes Dylan and who doesn't.  That debates been going on for approaching 50 years!  That said, very few folks would come up with lines that warm my heart like:

Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet

Putting her in a wheelbarrow and wheeling her down the street

You go, Bobby!
