The life of Bob Dylan.
Written by Lena Dunham
|Doesn't really matter, you know, what kind of nasty names people invent for the music. But, folk music is just a word that I can't use anymore. What I'm talking is traditional music, which is to say it's mathematical music, it's based on hexagons. But all these songs about, you know, roses growing out of people's brains and lovers who are really geese and swans are turning into angels. I mean, they're not going to die. They're not folk music songs. They're political songs. They're already dead. You'd think that these traditional music people would gather that mystery, you know, is a traditional fact, seeing as they're so full of mystery. Yeah, contradictions. Yes, it's chaos, clocks, and watermelons... you know, it's everything. These people actually think that I have some kind of fantastic imagination. It gets very lonesome. But traditional music... It's too unreal to die. It doesn't need to be protected. I mean, in that music is the only true valid death you can feel today, you know, off a record player. But like everything else in great demand, people try to own it. Has to do with the purity thing. I think its meaninglessness is holy. Everybody knows I'm not a folk singer.|
