Jamaicans Record Bob Dylan Tribute Album
KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) - Jamaican musicians have recorded a tribute album to Bob Dylan with reggae covers of some of the singer's most well-known songs, the album's distributor said Friday.
"Is It Rolling, Bob" includes 16 songs recorded by veteran performers such as Beres Hammond and new-wave roots groups like Sizzla, said Gary Himelfarb, head of Washington D.C.-based RAS Records.
"Bob Dylan has always been one of my favorite artists," Himelfarb said. "He was a voice of the oppressed in the 1960s, just like Bob Marley was the voice of the oppressed in the 1970s."
Although the album will not be released in the United States and Europe until June, three songs are playing already in Jamaica: "Subterranean Blues" by Sizzla, "Knocking On Heaven's Door" by Luciano and "Just Like a Woman" by Hammond.
Recording took place in Kingston, London and Washington D.C.
Other musicians featured on the album include guitarist Earl Smith, a former guitarist for Marley's band, The Wailers.

You asked for ideas for where to go when you're in Washington DC this weekend - Check out the Spy Museum - Click on the Spy Talk link in the green box. And I sent you an email about my training trip to the Big M. Did you get the email and are just ignoring me, or did you not get the email?
You're Babar the King!

Though your life has been filled with struggle and sadness of late,
you're personally doing quite well for yourself. All this success brings responsibility,
though, and should not be taken lightly. Life has turned from war to peace, from damage
to reconstruction, and this brings a bright new hope for everyone you know. These hopeful
people look to you for guidance, and your best advice to them is to watch out for snakes.
You're quite fond of the name "Celeste".

You know, some people just use their middle fingers for things like the scratching of noses. This is ridiculous. And I don't even watch American Idol.
I think if bosses believed these degrees were real enough to give these workers a raise, then the workers probably weren't the problem.

So, on a different note, my dad regaled me with a tale about our siamese cat, Satan. He calls her Lady. Dad was outside sitting in the sun when he saw Satan approach him from the pasture. In Satan's mouth was a big, fat, dead, mole. Satan came right up to Dad and dropped the mole at his feet as proud as she could be and wanted petted. She's our hunter. The others just wait around for the cat food.

J Lo told to cover up
Los Angeles - Jim Caviezel asked Jennifer Lopez to put some clothes back on before filming a raunchy sex scene with her.
The actor, now starring in Mel Gibson's Passion of Christ, appeared in Angel Eyes with J Lo but didn't want to see her naked.
The newly married actor told Lopez that he didn't want to offend his wife Kerri, reports the Daily Mirror.
"I want to respect her," he said. "The only bare breasts I want next to me in my life belong to my wife."
An astonished J Lo ended up filming the scene wearing both her bra and a pair of knickers.
Jim, a devout Catholic, prays for 15 minutes every morning before working out and went to mass every day while filming the Passion of Christ.
However, the paper reports he's not at all stuffy about his beliefs. When asked how he prepared for the role of Jesus, he joked: "I walked on my pool twice a day. It's hard to do." - Ananova.com
Referring to Simpson's role on MTV's "Newlyweds," Bush told the audience, "Jessica Simpson is here with us, which means we've finally introduced reality TV to the Lincoln Theater."
He meant Ford's Theatre, of course, but everyone knows President Lincoln was shot there. "An easy mistake to make," Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle told us at a post-show dinner at the Organization of American States.
Simpson, whose verbal gaffes are also legendary, pulled another one Sunday visiting the White House, our sources say. The singer was introduced to Interior Secretary Gale Norton and gushed: "You've done a nice job decorating the White House."

Well, this must mean that al-Qaida was behind these new attacks. The American media would never mislead the public about something so tragic.
Hmmm.... maybe not murder, but some kind of a negligent homicide charge might be appropriate...

"Second request - I submitted a comment to you last week regarding my cancellation of my subscription to TV Guide. On 1/20/04, I returned the Continuous Service Acknowledgment/Invoice with my request that you cancel my subscription. I received a notice that you had indeed cancelled my subscription. This Continuous Service letter that you sent me indicated that my subscription was paid through 2/14/04. However, I am still receiving issues of TV Guide and I am getting phone calls from your telemarketers asking me to renew my subscription. I do not intend to renew my subscription. I want it cancelled. I do not intend to pay for any issues of the TV Guide sent to me after 2/14/04. Please stop sending me TV Guide. If I am still receiving TV Guide after April 1, 2004, I will ask the Consumer Protection Division of the West Virginia State Attorney General's office to assist me in getting this resolved."

Fly-Tipping??? Here in America, we have what's called Cow-Tipping in which you sneak out into pastures at night and push over cows who are asleep while standing up. Now, maybe you see why I'm confused by this 'fly-tipping' phrase. Perhaps my UK friends could enlighten me........

While I was watching Nashville Star, the USA channel aired commercials for their new series, Touching Evil. I think I'll try to watch this show. It stars a guy who played Jarod's psycho brother, Kyle, on the NBC show, The Pretender. I loved the character of Kyle and was disappointed that he only figured into two episodes. They could have done so much more with him.

I had the tv on CMT for a second this morning and caught the video for the song, "Long Black Train", by Josh Turner. You know how there are just some songs you can identify the artist for just by listening to the lyrics or the music - it would be their style of song? Well, this is a Randy Travis song if I've ever heard one. But apparently this Josh Turner wrote the song so Randy's probably never sung it. Anyway, here's a link to the Amazon page so you can listen to a sample of the song.

Today was my five year anniversary of working for my employer. As a reward, I am now eligible to earn three additional vacation days a year.
The TV Guide people are still sending me TV Guides even though they confirmed over two weeks ago that I had cancelled my subscription. I will have to email them and tell them that I will not pay for any more of these things. I didn't get around to doing it last week.
