Round Midnight at the Global Worldwide Headquarters (Bob Dylan’s ‘4th Time Around’ Edition)

In the hardworking staff’s desk drawer is a 5 1/2″ x 4″ x 2 1/4″ black wood box with a ceramic top (crafted in 1970 by our great friend Margaret Ahlrichs – hey! we have all these friends in common!) featuring a black-and-white profile of Bob Dylan and this quote from 4th Time Around:

And I, I never took much
I never asked for your crutch
Now don’t ask for mine

(The headscratching staff has spent the last half-hour trying to figure out how to transfer a photo of said box to this post. We have failed miserably.)

Whatever.

We see the box every day. And last night it sent us here (sorry for the butterfly video):

 

 

And here, to the bootleg version:

 

 

According to Vimeo’s Ron Talley, “This is one of Dylan’s loveliest melodies. And the words, of course, are genius!”

Really. And all this time we thought it was just Dylan’s fabulous parody of the Beatles’ Norwegian Wood.

 

 

Shows what we know.
