Apologies if this is an oldie...but I found this image interesting- it’s a screenshot from the Series of Dreams video.

It's a nice idea... you take a video of Bob in a taxi, insert the face of Lenny Bruce and you get a cool picture. But basically it shows you the possibilities of manipulating existing video footage. The video was made ,I don't know, 25 years ago? I wonder how this video would look if it was produced with todays technology.

"Technology to wipe out the truth is now available. Not everybody can afford it but it's available. When the cost comes down look out!" Probably the most prophetic words Bob Dylan ever wrote, back in 1993.

That’s from the famous “John Lennon cab ride” I believe. I assume they superimposed Lenny for a reason - vs a new/different/ image- thus associating John Lennon and Lenny Bruce.

Those liner notes are all gems, but this one is a gut punch...and like Soul said, this technology quote was from when Microsoft windows/ PC s ruled the land. Look out!
