Want an interesting voice on your satellite navigation system but tired of the Yoda, Stewie, Arnold and Homer themes you've already downloaded? Good news, then. Bob Dylan has just announced on his "Theme Time Radio Hour" show in the U.K. that he may be providing his distinctive vocals to a GPS unit near you soon. Says Dylan:
I am talking to a couple of car companies about being the voice of their GPS system. I think it would be good if you are looking for directions and hear my voice saying something like: left at the next street, no a right - you know what? Just go straight... I probably shouldn't do it because which ever way I go I always end up at one place: Lonely Avenue.
We can picture it now... the first time you're lost, Bob Dylan's elastic voice comes on loud through the speakers, "How does it feel? To be on your own... with no direction home. Like a complete unknown." Comforting, no?

      I'd like to have Barbossa talk to me on my GPS. When we get lost, you would hear...Aye, we're good and lost now! Then they could have him laugh as if you were a mangy bilge rat.

        Nice user name. Why don't you tell us how you really feel?

      You don't understand Dylan because you don't listen! The greatest line he ever wrote was in his Oscar-winning song: "I used to care . . . but things have changed." Live, learn and grow a little, and THEN you will understand!

      I can't wait for the Keith Richards theme telling me to stay on the white line.

        Keith Richards! That would be funny! Great Idea!

      I'm all for it, driving along late at night, deep in contemplative
      thought, listening to Self Portrait, Bob Dylan interrupting
      himself every ten or fifteen minutes to nudge you along in the right
      direction...Brilliant.

      Mike Tyson and Regis Philbin, are you listening? I want you to tell
      me where I'm going!

      Why do people always say that Dewey Cox sounds like Bob Dylan? Maybe Bob Dylan sounds like Dewey Cox!!

      If you got Bob Dylan to do the voice, you'd be perpetually lost. First, you can't understand what he says, and secondly, Bob hasn't known where he was for years. Talk about the blind leading the blind...but using inarticulate voices to give you directions is kind of like asking Stevie Wonder to pick your paint color, isn't it?
