Original notebook page for Dylan’s The Times They are a Changin’..Notice how there are hardly any cross-outs.  He was like 22. Happy Birthday Bob. 
From Wikipedia..Less than a month after Dylan recorded the song, President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas, on November 22, 1963. The next night, Dylan opened a concert with “The Times They Are a-Changin’”; he told biographer Anthony Scaduto: “I thought, ‘Wow, how can I open with that song? I’ll get rocks thrown at me.’ But I had to sing it, my whole concert takes off from there. I know I had no understanding of anything. Something had just gone haywire in the country and they were applauding the song. And I couldn’t understand why they were clapping, or why I wrote the song. I couldn’t understand anything. For me, it was just insane.”[8] 
Floating Russian Women
I can’t stop watching this. It’s from a film called “Spring Madien” from 1960.I am convinced there is more trippy folksy Russian media out there somewhere besides what’s on Youtube. 
Sedyane’s Ghosty Ancient Folk Music
A while back I came across this hypnotic musician named Sedyane from up in Northumbrian, UK. He’s a traditional storyteller and “ante-folk” singer. His music and improvisations are like time traveling in this odd way. He plays the ancient Crwth or a Welsh Lyre and many other instruments. I’m very curious who taught him how to play these things.

Skull “Hobo” Nickels

The sudden scarcity of jobs in the early 1930s forced a huge number of men to hit the road. Certainly some coins were carved to fill the idle hours. More importantly, a ‘knight of the road,’ with no regular source of income, could take one of these plentiful coins and turn it into a folk art piece, which could in turn be sold or traded for small favors such as a meal or shelter for a night.
