At our April 1 meeting we will discuss Jim Robbins’ selections,
Bob Dylan, Chronicles Volume One (2004)
The Bob Dylan Super Bowl Chrysler commercial (2014)
Jim provides the following information about his selections:
“What did you bring me Daddy?” a memorable line from Mad Men. This is a fascinating show that playhouses Madison Ave. Ad Men in hyperdrive, and how these agents of materialism tapped into our mythic urgings in order to close the deal.
This book selection is a look into Bob Dylan’s early beginnings in NYNY. This is another POV chronicle of America in the 60’s. They seem at opposite poles. Both are “tapped in” yet one seems suspicious while the other seemed so real. In light of Dylan’s recent venture with corporate marketing (as represented by the linked Chrysler commercial) what are we to think of Bob? Can answers be trusted?
This month’s choice will be a match of image and text:
Bob Dylan Chronicles Volume One
The Bob Dylan Super Bowl Chrysler commercial.
