As Warmuth's work gains recognition and grows in scope and sophistication, it seems worthwhile and appropriate to create a thread in which scottw or others could archive in one place Warmuth's discoveries and theories about Dylan's sources.

The thread created to discuss and assess Warmuth's project on Dylan's sources ( viewtopic.php?f=38&t=70441) is, perhaps, an inappropriate place for Warmuth to post or post about his own work. It could be considered unseemly.

I hope this thread can serve as a kind of repository or library for his discoveries instead of place for discussion about them.

To get things started, and in light of the recent loss of some of Scott's posts on Dylan and Richard Prince, here is a series of scottw's posts on Dylan and Prince:

There's a background photo of a young lady as she holds a book above her head, hoping a stray word may fall from the pages and down through the aperture of her eye into her very being...

That stray word could very well be "Dylan." The book the topless women were reading in the park is David Bowman's Bunny Modern. The story centers on a world without electricity and one of the competing theories on why the electricity disappeared has to do with Bob Dylan plugging in. One of the main characters in the book is named Dylan.

Here's a passage:
"You're not one of those Tower Record freaks who believe that all our current is flowing back through time to when Dylan went electric at Newport?" she says.

"That would be ironic." This Dylan smiles.

Fulton Ryder is Richard Prince's private bookshop and publishing concern. A photo that Fulton Ryder posted along with shots of women from the Topless Pulp Fiction Club in the park is of a copy of Bunny Modern open to a two-page spread from a part of the book that mentions Bob Dylan and "the Ghost of Electricity" to which torn out photos of Dylan have been applied. Two passages from the book have been highlighted as well. You can see the photo here: https://twitter.com/fulton_ryder/status ... 53/photo/1

Thanks, scottw.

You're welcome.

Also worth considering is the photo that Richard Prince posted of an inscribed copy of The Asia Series catalog with a message from Dylan to Prince that says, "Thanks for all the encouragement": http://prod-images.exhibit-e.com/www_ri ... 1296w1.jpg

Fulton Ryder has a copy of The Asia Series catalog for sale that is signed by Richard Prince and features a drawing by Prince based on "Visions of Johanna": http://www.fultonryder.com/publications ... sia_series

The Outdoor Co-ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society: Did Bob Dylan Paint Us…?

The phone’s been ringing off the hook (metaphorically speaking—metaphorical phone, metaphorical hook) ever since we joined forces with Richard Prince’s Fulton-Ryder crew for a topless afternoon in Central Park. Rumor has it that Bob Dylan showed up, paints and easel in hand, and spent the afternoon using us as life models for his latest oil-on-canvas musings.

True? False? Don’t ask us. When we hit the grass for one of our outdoor adventures, we’re focused on our books and each other, not the people all around us. Was there someone with an easel in the distance? Our answer: maybe…? There almost always is when we visit that particular grove, which is popular with artists of all stripes. We know there was a bridal party taking photos…some people walking dogs…a guy dressed in what was either a monk’s habit or the world’s most elaborate D&D costume… Was the singer/songwriter responsible for anthems of social change such as “Blowin’ In the Wind” and “The Times, They Are A-Changin’” there, too? If so, he didn’t come over and introduce himself. And we really wish he had. After all, the times, they are a-changin’—and we know a social movement that could use a good anthem.

So, how about it, Mr. Dylan? Whether you were there this time or not, we’d certainly welcome you at another of our events. You can paint us all you want. The only thing we ask in return is a little bit of the old firebrand poetry to stir the hearts of free-thinking women everywhere. Or should we just repurpose “Blowin’ In the Wind”?

Last one from that thread:

From http://coedtoplesspulpfiction.wordpress ... s-forever/ (NSFW):
"Ten of us made the trek out to the little sylvan grotto in Central Park known as “Strawberry Fields,” near where John Lennon lived and died, and yes, there really are tiny strawberries growing there in the grass. (No, we didn’t eat any.) Several birds came to say hello, also one tiny slug. We got curious looks from several school groups and packs of tourists who walked past on the path beyond the fence, and a visit from two friendly police officers who said they told someone who complained to them about us that we were entirely within our rights and didn’t have to do anything different. Chalk one up for the NYPD."

I would like to know why Scott does not put this in a book . His work is very interesting and it could become a major reference.

All Mr Warmuth has really done is explored and rediscovered most of what was already known . To me it seems like he is one of many.
