Great to see the Nobel Committee has finally stopped giving out awards to duds like T.S. Eliot, Faulkner, Hemingway, Steinbeck, Bellow and other surly males lacking the kind of sensitivity that Bob Dylan with his concerns for racial justice and the end of war and the bohemian lifestyle in general has in spades. (not a racial reference!).
Although, personally, I’d rather have seen the award go to more deserving writers such as Stephen King or Lena Dunham whose work has the common touch and speaks to the heart without complicating things all up as Dylan often allows himself to do. I like to do it myself, but I’m not a great poet like Bob so it mainly comes out as gibberish.
But listen, Bob, seriously. Just because one considers himself a poet is no reason to keep using references to literary figures like Rimbaud and Verlaine that people aren’t going to get at all, particularly those in their early years, the younger generation who we’re all depending on to carry forth the lighter of Western Literature. Mr. Know It All Showoff!
Like the other Nobel Lit Prize winners of the past few years! Come on, you guys. Enough with boring your readers to death! Imagine the string of prizes going to writers like JMG LeClezio, Jose Saramago, Wislawa Szymborska, Naguib Mahfouz, Tomas Transtromer, Kenzaburo Oe, Wole Soyinka in the past. Were the Nobel Members drunk? Who can even pronounce those names, much less read any of them?
It’s about time an American White Male won this award. So it comes as the greatest relief that they at least chose our greatest representative. But another criticism: if the Committee had a any sense of justice they’d have also given Bob the Nobel Peace Prize. Other great warriors for Peace like Barack Obama and Henry Kissinger and Yitzhak Rabin have gotten theirs. These are men who have moved the world away from the nightmarish savagery of the past into this era of brotherhood we all enjoy.
And certainly Bob with his insightful lyrics about misunderstood psychopathic thugs like Joey Gallo has shown us how homicidal maniacs also have their sensitive side, which they acquire by reading Wilhelm Reich and Friedrich Nietzsche while in prison for murder.
I know the lyrics are almost unintelligible given Dylan’s singing voice but the effort made to listen to them are more than amply rewarded with the blinding illumination this great Poet has delivered regularly throughout his career:
Of course when men like Kissinger and Obama were given their prizes the Nobel committee wasn’t in its current politically correct state, so the acknowledgement of Dylan which is long overdue is hopefully a sign they’re moving in the right direction… back to a time when the Nobels really meant something with members unafraid of the P.C. Police and were ready to support the real Police! And I’m not talking about Sting!
But speaking of Sting, there we have another great writer who is no doubt deeply disappointed due to choice of an American when any music lover knows that the Sting songbook and certainly Lennon-McArtney were simply disregarded entirely due to their not being Americans. Hey, Brits! Eat our dust! We’re better than you! And it’s about time the Nobels (stupid fucking Swedes!) recognized us with the Award we deserve.
And you, Nobel Peace Prize committee! Get with it, bumpkins!
Let’s have a joint award shared between Hillary and Beyonce next year once Hillary cleaned up all these global aggressions going on against us. And Beyonce has settled down racial tensions with some more dance videos.
Or perhaps Barack can get another one in the first threesome Peace Prize? As he is still hard at work today sending a message to Yemen that we’re at war with them. To be honest, I think the main reason Barack might not really deserve another Peace Prize is by being so weak he’s in fact encouraged even pipsqueak countries like Yemen to think they can take a crack at us. I have no doubts in regard to Hillary being weak. No! She is tough as nail, as Mr. Putin is sure about to find out. Imagine the nerve of the guy hacking her emails in a feeble attempt to get Donald Trump elected!
That’s right, Barack Hussein Obama. Your continual weakness has given every little one of these towelheads the notion that they can get away with kicking their desert sand in our face. Nuke some the fuckers, like Hillary is prepared to do! See if they keep up with their aggressions then.
Just wait until Hillary steps up to the plate, she’ll teach all these basket of deplorables a lesson just like she did Quadafi. “We came. We saw. He died.!” Get the message, you backwards savages!
If you didn’t the first time, here it is again. We laugh in your face, motherfuckers!:
And you know how Muammar died? A bayonet shoved up his rectum! And shot several times for good measure. What a laugh, right? Hillary isn’t just a brilliant policy wonk, she’s also got a great sense humor. And he got what he deserved because he didn’t do what we told him to do! That’s how justice gets meted out when you’ve got God on your side, right Bobby? Profound lyrics coming up! Listen! Absorb! Repeat them to your neighbors. Or sing them as you hold hands and sing kumbaya and other ethnic tunes showing your love of all humanity as we are all one! Innocent children with hearts as big as the great outdoors (what are left of them).
But, really, Nobels! This Dylan is a bit over the hill, dont cha think? Don’tcha? Let’s get with some of the new talent. How about Madonna, Katy Perry, Beyonce and Coldplay. Howzabout it? Check this out! Now we’re talkin’ World Peace that is real. That is real change! Real Hope! Except HOLY COW! The Illuminati is behind Beyonce, Madonna, Katy Perry and Coldplay!!
Who are the Illuminati? You don’t know? Well, stay tuned to this blog as we here at True Outsider are determined to check into this disturbing phenomenon that has been going on for centuries. Did any of you see that quick cut of Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut? You know, Kubrick, right? The guy who filmed the moon landing to fake out earthlings that we had landed a man on the moon? Yeah. That Kubrick!
