Happy Birthday, Bob Dylan!

Yes, it's that time again - when all is filled with love and awe, where we put down our swords and smash them into ploughshares and just celebrate that on this day, sixty-nine years ago, Bob Dylan came into the world.  We'll post more later, but for now - here's Mr. Dylan with the song that won him an Oscar:

And here is his masterpiece Visions of Johanna and his most fascinating interpretation of the song during his landmark 1966 tour of England:

"A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom."
-Bob Dylan
