Only in the circles of TR could a guy in Colorado hear about .......

....... another guy in Australia who's (presumably) passed on: Jules, or jardinier - aka Julian Hancock, of Sidney Australia.

He was certainly one of my most, shall I say, interesting adversaries back in the Golden Age of the TR Water Cooler; but he was also, in many ways, one of my biggest supporters - encourager might be a better way to put it. Very few have encouraged me to follow an unlikely passion like Julian did.

However, being less than 100 percent certain about my assumption that Julian has indeed passed away, perhaps Julian will post a message putting egg all over my face. We'd both get a good laugh, I'm sure.

But I wish I would have sent him that original 1963 Bob Dylan record album that I told him I'd send. At first, I couldn't find it among my collection of thousands, and then, as time went by, the thought slipped away.

So, here's to you, Julian:

The Golden Age of the TR Water Cooler. I like that.

I've only seen him an odd handful of times

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Only in the circles of TR ...

but he struck me as an oddly consistent fellow.
I like odd. Odd has character.
If he has indeed passed beyond, may he find what he expects. Or not, at least be disappointed.

Lest I have to post another Bob Dylan tune, Tombstone Blues!

I think Julian would have liked that album

by AV . In reply to Only in the circles of TR ...

Agree with him or not, he was definitely one of a kind. I think he would have loved that album. Thats a really old Dylan video. He must be very young there. His son Jakob looks just like him.

Oh, gosh, the olden days on TR. I remember that discussion from your link. He certainly didn't mince words, did he? LOL.

I remember Julian, also, for his love of flowers. He was quite a talented gardener, hence his screen name Jardinier.

One version of this record album is worth over $10,000. No, I don't have that version. On that rare version, Dylan substituted a few songs, including. "Talkin' John Birch Society Blues".

On the common version:

All songs written by Bob Dylan, except where noted:

Side one

"Blowin' in the Wind" 2:48
"Girl from the North Country" 3:22
"Masters of War" 4:34
"Down the Highway" 3:27
"Bob Dylan's Blues" 2:23
"A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall" 6:55

Side two

"Don't Think Twice, It's All Right" 3:40
"Bob Dylan's Dream" 5:03
"Oxford Town" 1:50
"Talkin' World War III Blues" 6:28
"Corrina, Corrina" (Traditional) 2:44
"Honey, Just Allow Me One More Chance" (Dylan, Henry Thomas) 2:01
"I Shall Be Free" 4:49

I didn't realize there was a different version of that album

by AV . In reply to The Freewheelin' Bob Dyla ...

Only you would know that. Dylan is such a prolific song writer. I always loved his music, but I'm not sure if I ever owned that album. If I did, I got rid of it a long time ago.

..... although I haven't had any dialogue with him since late 2010 - December 11, 2010, to be exact.

I, too, sent him and email about a week ago, but alas, no answer.
