For all you Townes Van Zandt fans, check out the beginning of this video for his utterly unexpected commentary on the origins of the song "Nothin'"

"Good ol' Nikos". I think it actually adds an interesting new dimension to the song...or maybe it's just weird as hell. Either way, every insight you get into the man just makes him that much more complicated and fascinating.

I'll side on the "weird as hell" end of things.

That said, that is one of the all-time most unsettling songs. I remember being jarred by it when you and Tex first played it for me during junior year, and it remains that way almost 9 years later.
