ah! place-name folklore!

i'm telling you, kurt, bloomington has a place for you, and the next county over has a banjo museum with your name on it!


Found this a bit late, but my uncle happens to own a pig farm down that road. I'm not certain it was named after his farm, but the road is short, and he is the only one with a pig farm on it.


Dunno if anyone will read this as I'm a bit late to the party, but I just stumbled onto this post---

There's a cool shot in Scorcese's "No Direction Home" biodoc where you can see Dylan ca. 1966 reading out loud from what must be shopwindow signs (they're off-camera) and rapidly riffing, twisting and switching the words around into a kind of free-associative nonsense that almost seems to foreshadow the Basement Tapes lyrics at times.
