A film about the notorious Bob Dylan obsessive, whose forays into Dylan's texts (and trash) led to a famous series of mutually insulting telephone conversations. Even in the strange world of music fanatics, A.J. Weberman is a personality that stands out.

The notorious Bob Dylan obsessive and the founder of "garbology" as a method of character analysis, his cabbalistic forays into Dylan's texts (and trash) eventually led to blows, street protests and a famous series of mutually-insulting telephone conversations, later immortalized on bootleg records.

This film is an irreverent exploration of a life spent on the obscure fringes of New York's Lower East Side, and offers a uniquely twisted take on the American dream.

Featuring an unforgettable cast of former Yippies, including offbeat folksinger David Peel, former child dancer Jay Byrd and Aaron 'Pieman' Kay, this film documents the life, times and crimes of a true original.
