(today's zomby) AND THE BOB DYLAN/MARTHA QUINN SUMMIT OF 1984

C'mon, Zomby, we both know you can't read.

How are you this Monday, citizens?

I'd like to share with you an interview I found on YouTube. It's MTV sweetheart Martha Quinn interviewing rock legend Bob Dylan for the cable channel back in 1984. Although Bob is a notoriously prickly interview subject, Quinn catches him in a relaxed, lighthearted mood and they have a nice, laid-back conversation. What's most bizarre is that at the beginning of this footage, Quinn herself seems to be putting the finishing touches on Dylan's makeup. Here's a snippet of their pre-interview conversation:
QUINN: Is this liquid eyeliner that you're using?
DYLAN: No.
QUINN: Just what is it?
DYLAN: It's a pencil.
So there you have it, folks. Bob Dylan got his mid-1980s raccoon eyes with a pencil and not liquid eyeliner.
