We listened to Bob Dylan, the 60’s counter-culture icon, after seeing his name mentioned in President Obama’s book A Promised Land. We also got to ask President Obama a few questions, and we'll ask him even more on the December episode of BookTube only on ALworld 12/16/20.

  • I just love you guys!

  • My advice as a 66 year old woman is this: don't get anyone pregnant, stay away from drugs and excessive alcohol. Learn how to relax, let loose and have fun without substances. From my observation these things just take away a LOT of possibilities for your future. Stay strong and always open to the highest possibilities for yourselves and everyone else. You can now just drop this into your conversations: "when I was talking to Barak Obama the other day....." I'd love to be able to say that.

  • Check out Bob Dylan's Hurricane. Talk about a storyteller. Bob Dylan wrote music more reverent today than when he wrote. My husband introduced to this song. I put right up there with Bob Marley's Buffalo Soldiers

You are both a treasure.

  • Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2016. "Hurricane" is as pertinent today as it was when he wrote it. Dylan personally started a movement to get Rubin "Hurricane" Carter released from jail.

    • @Catherine Sherratt LOL! It is true, the message is great, but dang, the voice is awful! It's like even the musical producers were on drugs back then! And Willie Nelson! What? Another dude who can't sing but made millions?🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️

    • Haha my Mum always says "the person who told Bob Dylan he could sing was a liar" 😅 Yet he was one of my Dad's favourite musicians! So a typical scene in my house was Dad putting Bob Dylan on the Hifi (full blast) and my Mum emerging telling him to turn it down, and my dad pretending not to hear her because is was in the 'zone', eyes closed, singing along... 🤣🤣 Ah the memories... Doesn't it seem crazy that this song came out in '64, 56 years ago, and many people around the world clearly wanted change... Yet we can now look on in 2020 and think, it has taken a loooooooong time to get this far..? ...And the message of this song still rings true ... 😏🤨🧐

  • I love you Twins. I first thought you were going to make fun of an artist, and I decided to watch anyway, and I was so happy when you really listened to the music, and then gave it the merit it deserved. I love this about you. Thank you for being one facet of opening the minds of the people.

  • Bob Dylan(Robert Zimmerman)folk singer in the 60's ..folk songs and protest songs. the 60's were turbulent times. Vietnam War..and at that time, the US had a "draft"system..where the govt might choose you to go to war...and you HAD to go..or face jail. Many dodged the draft and went to Canada ..Rev King,Malcom X , marches desegregation.. Many demanded that the laws needed changing.

  • I’m reading Obama’s book now & seeing this just made me smile. I miss him as our President. I’m miss Michelle. The last 4 years have left me stunned. As much as I have hope for the next administration, I long for the trust I felt when this beautiful family was our First Family. Such hope. Such promise. Such integrity. If you don’t agree, save your breath & save yourself the embarrassment.

  • This was the intro credits, for the 'Watchmen' film, and plays over a scene full of Easter Eggs, that expand on material that didn't make it into the film for space reasons. You see the first generation of 1930s costumed heroes, falling into addiction, madness, getting killed in action, being replaced by the more jaded new generation.

You’d already reached so many people and experienced some every cool firsts but you’ve now reached a unique echelon by meeting and talking to President Obama. It’s been an exciting adventure watching you guys listen and react to so many vastly different types of music. Your reactions are priceless, you make us laugh, smile, tear up and we remember oldies and discover new music with you. We love your heartfelt comments you share because you’re connecting with so many people from such different backgrounds worldwide. But you will never forget meeting Prez O! Just think about that - President Obama knows who you are. Officially wowed! ☮️ & 💟
