Last Word on the Atheist Bus Advertisement

Some enterprising internet user with too much time on his/her hands has designed a bus slogan generator site where you can put your own slogan on a bus. Thanks to bloggers Emerging Writer and Barbara who blogged it first.

Sony Music had the same sort of idea to publicise Dylan last album. You could add your own message to the cards in the famous the "Subterranean Homesick Blues" cue-card scene from the film Don't Look Back by D.A. Pennebaker. That's poet Allen Ginsberg in the background by the way.

Which reminds me that according to reports Dylan will release a new album in late April to coincide with his European tour. Great news. His last three albums have been widely praised as masterpieces. Read the rumours here, here and here.

An appropriate use of the bus, I think!

Good news about Dylan, we'll wait for that with interest :)
