You both make interesting points, which I agree with. I believe that reincarnation is real, though I'm not always in agreement with the people you claim to be reincarnated lindsayjudy.
I personally feel that DNA is connected to reincarnation. Call it the purpose of junk DNA or whatever...
This may be off topic for this forum...I'm never sure how far to take things here, but there is a spiritual element to all of this DNA harvesting/cloning etc which I've mentioned before. I get the feeling that it may be too much for this forum however...
lindsayjudy the Nothing is Real Paul Was Replaced forum has a wider ranging discussion of spirituality in connection to the replacements/cloning stuff being dealt with here. Just FYI
Dylan was replaced in late 1961 or early 1962. There's a YT video (as of now, they might take it off) of him performing A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall (1962) and it's his replacement. I can tell by the shorter, more square face (the real Dylan had a roundish, long, narrow face). And the singing style is TOTALLY different. The real Dylan gave more gritty performances.
Also, there's a YT video (as of now) of him in 1961 singing a song called Fixin' To Die. That's kind of a strange subject for a young fellow to be singing about, isn't it?
In the comments section for one of these vids, someone remarked that Dylan looks like Adam Sandler. Since I believe that many or most well-known performers are reincarnated beings, I wonder: - Doesn't or didn't Adam Sandler sing at his concerts, when he's given concerts?
In the 1970 Scadutto biography of Dylan he writes that Dylan's appearance seemed to change often when he lived in London in the 1960s; so much so that he got the nickname "plasticman".... which was also the nickname of Richard Farina (friend of Dylan/Fylan and husband of the much younger Mimi Baez, Joan Baez' sister).
Wondering if Farina served as one of the Fylans; I wrote about that on NIR a long time ago.
John/Fohn Lennon: "I haven't been a Dylan-follower since he stopped rocking. I like "Rolling Stone" and the few things he did then, I like a few things he did in the early days, but the rest of it is just like, you know, McCartney or something. You know? It's just no different. It's a myth."
Some feel Dylan was replaced in the early 1960s. That may well be true, I haven't really studied that time period yet but I know a huge change did happen in the 1966-67 period.
I was a big fan up through the "Blonde On Blonde" album which was recorded in early 1966. Then, in July of '66 was "the motorcycle accident." This was followed by a long absence and then the release of the twangy, cornball "John Wesley Harding" album in which the fake Dylan bozo couldn't even spell or pronouce the guy's name correctly (it's Hardin, not Harding) and everybody in the business at that time seemed to just pretend it was cool to misspell it like that (yeah, right).
Then the even more twangy, more cornball "Nashville Skyline" album was released which featured fellow MK victim Johnny Cash. I tried to like these two albums but the truth was I thought they sucked and this marked the end of my Dylan album buying.
Here is one Fob Fylan (starting at 0:18) talking about songs that he didn't really write:
Oops -- I already posted a link to this video earlier in this thread. Oh well, it's still worth another look.
I always suspect a change taking place when someone has been out of the spotlight for a time, when there is talk of an accident, drug abuse, or other such "stories" like in rehab, or some other lame talk of them being out of the limelight for any great length, enough time to get someone else ready to take over.
"Bob Dylan Accused of Painting Plagiarism Critics say new images are copied from famous photographs
The paintings in Bob Dylan's "The Asia Series," which are currently on display at the Gagosian Gallery in Manhattan, have come under fire for their resemblance to widely available pre-existing photographs. The series of paintings, which are said to part of a "visual journal" made by the singer during his travels through Japan, China, Vietnam and Korea, have been compared to famous photos by well-known photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Léon Busy.
"The most striking thing is that Dylan has not merely used a photograph to inspire a painting: he has taken the photographer’s shot composition and copied it exactly," wrote Dylan critic Michael Gray in a post on his blog, Bob Dylan Encyclopedia. "He’s replicated everything as closely as possible. That may be a (very self-enriching) game he’s playing with his followers, but it’s not a very imaginative approach to painting. It may not be plagiarism but it’s surely copying rather a lot."
While some fans in the Dylan-centric online community Expecting Rain have voiced concern about the songwriter's highly derivative visual art, others have argued that "quotation" is a part of the tradition of art. Nevertheless, it's a bit difficult to reconcile this notion with the fact that the work has been presented as coming from the rock legend's "firsthand" experiences abroad. Dylan has, in his way, been forthcoming about using photographs in his paintings. In a statement in the exhibition's catalog, the singer says that he paints "mostly from real life. It has to start with that. Real people, real street scenes, behind the curtain scenes, live models, paintings, photographs, staged setups, architecture, grids, graphic design. Whatever it takes to make it work."
No wonder, he has a history of plagiarism actually.
"Joni Mitchell described Dylan as a "plagiarist" and his voice as "fake" in a 2010 interview in the Los Angeles Times, in response to a suggestion that she and Dylan were similar since they had both changed their birthnames".
Regardless of the fact that JONI herself was replaced...
To quote him: "All I can do is be me. Whoever that is."
He must know better. Or not...
