2021.11.29 12:09 MerlinAesalon Hall of Fame Matchmaking Update November 29, 2021
We're always looking for ways to improve balance and make gameplay more exciting for you. Thanks to your feedback, we have managed to find that some of our players tend to face opponents that are much stronger.
Fortunately, we’ve managed to improve this unfair situation and today (November 29th) we will slightly change the enemies’ selection system to make your progress through the leagues more enjoyable.
Hall of Fame enemies will not be that invincible. They will be as close as possible to your power within your league.
If you still have questions or difficulties, you can contact the support service or write to us at [firstname.lastname@example.org](mailto:email@example.com).
Good luck on the battlefield!
Notes This change was actually made late last week, and was only announced today.

2021.11.29 12:08 pfromthenc Listening to Dylan in order: "Slow Train Coming"
In honor of Bob Dylan’s 80th birthday, I decided to listen to all of his “official” recordings in order. I’ve now reached “Slow Train Coming”.
Slow Train Coming - Wikipedia
Recorded: April 30 - May 11, 1979
Released: August 20, 1979
Here’s the second huge inflection point in Dylan’s career. 1965: Dylan goes electric! 1979: Dylan is born again! But in retrospect -- 40+ years on -- both of these transformations feel much more of a piece with Dylan’s 60 year (and counting) career.
I remember well when this album came out. Everyone was a Christian where I grew up, so this was a pretty big deal. However, I wasn’t all that interested in it myself, since I was listening to The Clash, Elvis Costello, The Ramones, B-52s, Talking Heads, …
This is an album I’ve listened to occasionally over the years and always liked pretty well. But now that I’ve listened to it carefully while going through all Dylan’s albums, I enjoy it much more and consider it quite successful on its own terms and in many ways consistent with the core themes of Dylan’s songs both before and since.
How is it consistent with Dylan’s songs? First, there is a strong strain of protest music here, linking back to his 60s critiques of American culture. We go from “flesh colored Christs that glow in the dark, it’s easy to see without looking too far, that not much is really sacred” to “the enemy I see wears a cloak of decency, all nonbelievers and men stealers talkin’ in the name of religion”. You’ve got “counterfeit philosophies have polluted all of your thoughts, Karl Marx has got ya by the throat, Henry Kissinger’s got you tied up in knots.” Dylan remains the prophet calling out the sins of the nation.
Second, people just don’t get it: “Something is happening here, but you don’t know what it is, do you Mr. Jones?” And now matter what you do or who you are (“an ambassador to England or France”!), you’re still “gonna have to serve somebody”.
Third, it isn’t just American culture or people in general, it’s Dylan’s own (so-called) friends! “You’ve got a lot of nerve to say you are my friend” (1965) and “My so-called friends have fallen under a spell, They look me squarely in the eye and they say, “All is well””.
Fourth, there are some oddly specific parallels. Both “All I Really Want to Do” (1964) and “Do Right To Be Baby (Do Unto Others)” list a whole lot of things Dylan doesn’t want to do before coming to the point. But the point has changed from being with you to doing right to you. (OK, that’s a pretty big change.)
Of course, there is a big difference, too. Back in 1964, the mission statement of “Another Side of Bob Dylan” was his renunciation of “lies that life is black and white”, which is how he came to think of his early protest songs. I think Dylan wanted to be relieved of any burden for coming up with an answer, or perhaps more precisely, that there was any easy answer. But now he has found The Answer, and you better believe it, mister.
You either got faith or unbelief, there ain’t no neutral groundAs I said, I really enjoy this album and think it succeeds on its own terms. However, there are two major caveats. First, while I don’t believe the theology on Slow Train Coming, it’s familiar to me, so maybe I’m susceptible to it. Actually, it’s more accurate to say I have nostalgia for it, or even that I wish I could feel the way Dylan felt here. The second caveat is that if Dylan wrote songs like this for the rest of his career, I’m sure I would have quickly lost interest and felt like this was a waste of his genius. (I wonder, though, if Dylan’s fiery conversion experience had stayed with him, would he have been happier for the past 40 years?) But as just one short phase, I think it fits nicely in his career and artistic arc.
He who is not with me is against me
You’re gonna have to serve somebody
It may be the devil or it may be the lord
But you’re gonna have to serve somebody
Precious angel, under the sunThat’s a central theme of the song, but, to paraphrase Dr. Strangelove, Dylan is a man of god, but he’s also a man:
How was I to know you'd be the one
To show me I was blinded, to show me I was gone
How weak was the foundation I was standing upon?
You're the queen of my flesh, girl, you're my woman, you're my delightThere’s also some powerful Dylan-poetry:
You're the lamp of my soul, girl, and you torch up the night
We are covered in blood, girl, you know our forefathers were slavesI assumed this somehow was a literal reference to Dylan’s and the subject’s ancestors. The Wikipedia article about this song suggests that the subject of the song was Black, so this is a joint reference to American slavery and the slavery of Jews in Egypt in biblical times. This interpretation is reinforced by the final lines before the lsat choruses:
Let us hope they've found mercy in their bone-filled graves
But there's violence in the eyes, girl, so let us not be enticedAnd this is a very appealing pop-rock song, with nice guitar from Mark Knopfler.
On the way out of Egypt, through Ethiopia, to the judgment hall of Christ
I had a woman down in AlabamaI don’t like to biographize Dylan, but it’s clear that he felt a mess in 1978. His ugly divorce was just finalized, he was musically uncertain, and I think deeply burned out. In 1966, after his motorcycle accident he retreated to upstate New York with his family, but now he’d lost (destroyed) his family. If he didn’t find some refuge, (as he wrote on his next album), he thought by this time he’d “be sleeping In a pine box for all eternity”. Not just dead, but in the grave for all eternity. While “Slow Train” doesn’t tell us about the refuge Dylan found, the rest of the album does.
She was a backwoods girl, but she sure was realistic
She said, “Boy, without a doubt
Have to quit your mess and straighten out
You could die down here, be just another accident statistic”
There’s a slow, slow train comin’ up around the bend
In the home of the braveAnd perhaps the ultimate condemnation:
Jefferson turnin’ over in his grave
Fools glorifying themselves, trying to manipulate Satan
The enemy I see
Wears a cloak of decency
All nonbelievers and men stealers talkin’ in the name of religion
Oh, you know it costs more to store the food than it do to give itWe’re letting people starve while there’s abundant food, and our talk about brotherly love is just empty words. It’s hypocrisy, including specifically religious hypocrisy, just like when the 1965 Dylan sang about “flesh colored Christs that glow in the dark, it’s easy to see without looking too far, that not much is really sacred”.
They say lose your inhibitions
Follow your own ambitions
They talk about a life of brotherly love show me someone who knows how to live it
God don’t make no promises that He don’t keepOK, sure, you can trust in God. But it’s the next line that gets me:
You got some big dreams, baby, but in order to dream you gotta still be asleepYou might have the American dream, dreams for yourself, but man, it’s time to wake up and face reality. You know why? Because:
Counterfeit philosophies have polluted all of your thoughtsThe philosophies -- the wisdom -- of the world aren’t going to do the job. Not communism -- that’s pretty easy for Dylan to dismiss; he never was a leftist. But “Henry Kissinger”? I think he represents secular wisdom or intellectual cleverness. This won’t do it either. You need to wake up.
Karl Marx has got ya by the throat, Henry Kissinger’s got you tied up in knots
How long can you falsify and deny what is real?“Untold Dylan” criticizes the album version for showy piano playing, and calls out the April 1980 Toronto live performance as the definitive, perfect version. I agree that the Toronto performance is superior, amazing, and one of Dylan’s greatest ever performances (up there with the 1966 “Like A Rolling Stone” and 1976 “Isis”). However, the album version still is great.
How long can you hate yourself for the weakness you conceal?
