bob dylan memorabilia for sale

If he doesn't find any takers, maybe he can just give it all back to Bob! ha!

70-year-old Mel Prussack is on the search for a university in the United States to be a permanent home for his Bob Dylan memorabilia collection.

Mel is hoping that a university will take his collection and put in on display, so people will get to enjoy his collection after he dies.

So far he spoke with Princeton University, but they turned him down, and now he's speaking with the University of Minnesota, which is Bob's home state.

Here's what Prussack had to say about his efforts to get his collection put up on display:

"(It's important) people know that I have these things and I want to put it somewhere. I want to try and educate the young people to understand why Dylan was such an important figure, because our whole times are going to be studied through his work."

For those of you out there who are hardcore Dylan fans, here are some of the key items in his collection:

- Keychian Dylan threw into crowd at William Paterson University show in '97

- Guitar Picks

- Promo jar of "Traveling Wilburys Twist Peanut Butter and Jelly"

- Drumsticks signed by Bob's percussionist Mickey Jones

Good luck finding a home for Dylan's stuff, Mel! It'll all work out eventually!

Fire Destroys Home Of Young Slumdog Millionaire Star

Filed under: Film FlickersSad Sad

This is so sad.

The home of Rubina Ali, the young star of the 2008 Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire, was destroyed by a fire Friday night.

Rubina and her family lived in a hut near the Bandra Railway Station near Mumbai. In the clip (above), you can see the village of huts that were destroyed by the fire. More than 500 huts were affected. Five people were reported missing.

In the fire, she lost everything, including her photographs, newspaper clippings, and film memorabilia that she had saved from the film.

Rubina's family was offered a flat after the film turned into a success, however her family turned it down, saying it was not big enough to house all of them.

On the night of the fire, Rubina said:

"Along with my house, all my good memories of my time on the film have been reduced to ashes. My new school books have been totally burnt. However, I feel relieved to see all my family members safe. The fire is so huge, it could have cost us our lives.

Seeing it burnt to ashes in front of my eyes, I feel like I have lost everything. This was all we had."

This just breaks our hearts.

We're just so relieved that Rubina and her family were not injured in the fire. Our hearts go out to them.
