Dylan gives rare interview, talks Sinatra, Elvis

This is your third album of standards in a row Ė Shadows in the Night was a big surprise and a really nice one. Fallen Angels was a sweet encore. Now you really upped the ante. Did you feel after the first two, you had unfinished business?

I did when I realized there was more to it than I thought, that both of those records together only were part of the picture, so we went ahead and did these.

Why did you decide to release three discs of music at once?

Itís better that they come out at the same time because thematically they are interconnected, one is the sequel to the other and each one resolves the previous one.

Each disc is 32 minutes long Ė you could have put it all on 2 CDs. Is there something about the 10 song, 32 minute length that appeals to you?

Sure, itís the number of completion. Itís a lucky number, and itís symbolic of light. As far as the 32 minutes, thatís about the limit to the number of minutes on a long playing record where the sound is most powerful, 15 minutes to a side. My records were always overloaded on both sides. Too many minutes to be recorded or mastered properly. My songs were too long and didnít fit the audio format of an LP. The sound was thin and you would have to turn your record player up to nine or ten to hear it well. So these CDs to me represent the LPs that I should have been making.

Whatís the challenge of singing with a live horn section?

No challenge, itís better than overdubbing them.

You like to be spontaneous in the studio, but here youíre working with tight arrangements and charts. Did that require a new way of thinking for you?

It did at first but then I got used to it. Thereís enough of my personality written into the lyrics so that I could just focus on the melodies within the arrangements. As a vocalist youíre restricted within definite harmonic patterns. But you have more control within those patterns than you would if there were no boundaries whatsoever, it actually takes less thought, hardly any thinking. So I guess you could call that a new way of thinking.

Man arrested at White House gate claimed Trump telepathy link

A Virginia man charged with making a bomb threat at a White House gate claimed to be communicating with President Donald Trump telepathically and said the bomb he had claimed to have was actually an asteroid, according to court documents filed on Monday.

Sean Keoughan, 29, of Roanoke, was arrested late on Saturday after he drove up to a White House checkpoint in a stolen Impala rental car. He got out and told Secret Service officers that he had a bomb, an Secret Service affidavit said.

"There's a bomb in the trunk. This is a test," he said before putting his hands in the air and being handcuffed.

Keoughan said he had a bag in the trunk containing an asteroid. He said that Trump had told him to tell officers that it held a bomb, the court filing said.

Keoughan said he was in touch with Trump telepathically through a process that let him communicate with high-level officials, the Secret Service and Delta Force, an elite Army unit, the affidavit said.

Owner of Phoenix Trump billboard: It will stay up as long as Trump is president

A menacing Donald Trump is gazing down on Phoenix's Grand Avenue.

The president is flanked by mushroom clouds and swastikas configured like dollar signs.

"I think a lot of people are feeling this way and I'm just trying to express what I think is on a lot of people's minds these days," the billboard's artist, Karen Fiorito, said Friday in an interview from her California home.

"Something that really concerned us was this idea of a dictatorship where things were going in a certain direction."

But look closely at the mushroom clouds and you'll see clown faces. There's a Russian flag on Trump's lapel.

"I tried to put a little bit of humor in things that are really dark and hard to take," Fiorito said.

Orioles VP John Angelos Says He Doesnt Want Trump Throwing First Pitch

BALTIMORE (WJZ) ó Executive Vice President of the Orioles John Angelos said on the B-more Opinionated Podcast this week that President Donald Trump would need to apologize for some of the statements heís made before heíd be OK with him throwing out the first pitch at a game.

While many are celebrating the president, there are still many critics including Orioles Executive Vice President John Angelos, who expressed disappointment in the commander in chief.

This all started when Angelos was asked whether there were plans to have Mr. Trump throw out a first pitch at Camden Yards.

For the last 100 years, presidents have been invited to throw out first pitches on major league baseball Opening Days. Angelos says before that happens, there needs to be an apology first. He voiced his disappointment in the presidentís conduct and the way heís spoken about immigrants and women.

'Heartless con man' J.G. Spooner sentenced to prison for GoFundMe, rent, bad check scams

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A prosecutor called former Cleveland radio host J.G. Spooner a "heartless con-man" minutes before a judge sentenced him to 30 months in prison in a series of scams that took advantage of complete strangers and the family of a dying friend.

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Brian J. Corrigan handed down the sentence after Spooner pleaded guilty to theft charges stemming from a months-long rent scam that he carried out while already under indictment for money laundering charges connected to a dying friend's GoFundMe account.

Corrigan also ordered Spooner to pay more than $16,000 in restitution to eight victims of his scams.

"Everyone knew J.G. Spooner as a radio personality," assistant Cuyahoga County prosecutor Edward Brydle told Corrigan. "But I don't think anybody knew he was a heartless con-man."
