“… and we lift ourselves from behind through land mines we baked into forbidden cakes, and hypocrisy has laughed out loud at us the only experiment made in our own laboratories as a sold out play staged by an invisible crew.”—Osekre’s Vibe
It’s one thing to write “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall” or “Blowin’ in the Wind” by that age, but add “Ballad of Hollis Brown,” “Talkin’ John Birch Paranoid Blues,” “Boots of Spanish Leather,” “Mr. Tambourine Man” and other bits of genius to the list, and it really hits hard what a phenomenal talent Dylan was at such a young age. - Bob Boilen
I like to think of tomorrow night as a celebration. We are going to rip the excitement out of our hearts and toss them in the air like flags. This time, instead of waving our national flags, we will be waving our humanity, our woes, and hopes. - I wont hold anything back, I hope you won’t. Once again, we will get together to laugh, and cry, and sing as we dance.
