Young in foot brace

Neil young with foot braceRecent photos of Neil Young and his latest distraction Daryl Hannah, show Young wearing a foot brace.

The photos were taken Saturday. May 30 after the two were seen having breakfast at Ollie’s Duck & Dive in Malibu, where Young appears to be living, while his wife Pegi Young remains at the couple’s ranch near La Honda, waiting for the impending divorce to become official.

According to San Mateo County Civil Court Records, a status conference is scheduled for June 19,  followed by a July 10 hearing on a motion for bifurcation of issues and a request by Neil Young for case resolution.

In divorce cases bifurcation means a couple legally dissolves the marriage, but postpones resolving issues such as property distribution until a later date.

Inarresting.

Meanwhile, the photos taken and posted at the Daily Mail  are voyeuristic, for those interested in Young’s personal life.

Since we are still catching up on BNB, and people are shopping for Christmas gifts, and the Neil Young store is pushing Cyber Monday today –  let’s visit a review of Young’s latest book: “Special Deluxe.”

BNB first wrote about the book’s release back in March.

This review appeared in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel back in October.

→Neil Young takes winding road in his automotive memoir ‘Special Deluxe’

Writer Jon Gilbertson calls Young’s writing: “rambling and winding.” Some like this style, stating it feels just like sitting down with Neil on the front porch, talking.  Others lose interest with the rambling and walk away. Same with his last book: “Waging Heavy Peace.”

Gilberston writes:

“He isn’t kidding about the cars: he writes about seemingly every car his parents owned, then several cars he’s owned, plus trucks and buses. He draws or traces 42 of them literally to illustrate his vehicular rhapsodies and lamentations.

Young also uses his fondness for automobiles as a reason he moved from Canada to the United States — “that was where all the cool music came from, all the great cars” — and as a springboard into an admitted obsession with carbon-dioxide emissions and cleaner alternative fuels.

Long before Young has given his 11th (and by no means final) figure for how much CO2 was pumped into the atmosphere during one of his automotive trips, the fit reader has settled into the fidgeting of a nephew or niece hoping a garrulous old uncle will hurry toward the good parts of his life story.”

And of course Young touched on the new, so-called “love of his life.” Which is different than two years ago, when he professed his endearing and undying love for Pegi Young in WHP.

“Once Young gives the last few chapters over to the aforementioned obsession with environmentally responsible cars, it’s not helpful when he mentions similarly minded activist and actor Daryl Hannah, with whom he is currently, openly consorting after filing for divorce from Pegi, his wife of 36 years (“the next love of my life,” he writes about their early encounters; “soul mate,” he writes later).

Another perspective on Neil’s activism

photo 2Filmmaker Tim Moen, who calls himself the Fort Mac Philosopher (as in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada) writes a thoughtful blog on his recent experience with Neil Young and Daryl Hannah.

Moen was asked to film some aerial footage of the area for Shakey Pictures and Neil’s ongoing Lincvolt documentary.

His provocative blog post takes issues with Neil’s stance on the city’s oilsands. Young  compared the northern Alberta oilsands city to Hiroshima after the atomic bomb.

Moen writes:

“All living things consume energy and pollute. Nature is as cruel as it is beautiful. Bacteria and viruses pollute this Earth and for the majority of our history have mercilessly put us in an early grave. Burning wood has improved our lives dramatically by allowing us to ingest more energy at less cost by cooking food and it keeps us warm. Our ability to find and harness energy has caused human life to flourish. Each energy source we innovate is not without it’s detriments. Nearly 2 million people die prematurely each year in developing countries from inhaling cooking smoke, what they wouldn’t give for the comparatively clean energy of coal generated electricity.

“People in developing countries generally care very little about the environmental standards we care about, they are too busy trying to survive to worry about their carbon footprint or how many blooms their community gets. The good news is that the richer a country gets the more environmentally conscious it tends to get and the cleaner and more efficient its energy tends to become. This investment in clean technology requires wealth, and wealth requires energy abundance.

“Neil Young himself proves this point in a number of ways. He is able to fight off the polluting secretions invading his sons lungs that would otherwise kill him if not for a fortuitous chain of events starting with the industrial revolution and all the wealth that it brought to the world that allowed a man enough free time to pursue a thing called rock stardom and afford round the clock care for his boy extending his life. His wealth also allowed him to pay a team of engineers and specialists to retrofit a classic car into a technological green marvel. His wealth allows him to pay for the energy expenditure to get cellulosic ethanol shipped from the one plant in the US that makes it to wherever his Lincvolt is. His wealth allows him to traverse the world with his entourage spreading the gospel of green. His wealth affords a helicopter to fly around and film him and that is okay. I promise you I do not mean this facetiously; getting to the cutting edge of cleaner technology creates a lot of pollution…always has. That’s why I don’t consider it hypocritical of Neil to preach clean energy while creating a bunch of pollution and why I’d like him to grant the rest of us the same consideration. We are conscientious adults with the same goals he has.”

He credits both Neil and Daryl afor trying really hard to make a difference in the world.

Moen raises points that will spark healthy debate.

Go to the country take the dog, look at the sky without the smog, see the world, laugh at the farmers feeding hogs, eat hot dogs.
