This video project was a year in the making. It encompasses homeless issues, and how the economic downturn still has long lasting effects, and I essentially riffed on the original Dylan lyric of "laughing drinking thinking that they got it made"........utilizing new poems and poetry written since the early 70's dealing with the working elite, and my own experiences with homelessness in the early 1980's.........Canadian Promoter Gary Topp is the person who suggested that I complete this project with him, and I am sure this video speaks not only to the youth of today but to all the baby boomers who grew up on Dylan's original version of that song in 1965. It consist of 737 words in 5 minutes, so brace your ears for the word onslaught.
