Bob Dylan has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Nobel Laureate shown here.
When it finally comes out, my book will explain what Bob Dylan means to me, how his ideas shaped me, how his words inspired me.

I'm absolutely freaking thrilled that he is a Nobel laureate.

Especially because in 1964 he wrote these words that seem pretty prescient today:

My guard stood hard when abstract threats too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking I had something to protect.
Good and bad, I define these terms quite clear, no doubt, somehow,
Ah, but I was so much older then I'm younger than that now

In the book, I promise.

Until then,

You changed my life
Came along in a time of strife
In hunger and need
You made my heart bleed
You changed my life

Thanks, Bobby.


  1. There have been a few Nobel winners who haven't surprised me. They've just made me think, "Well it's about time!"
    The announcement about Bob Dylan both surprised me and made me think "Well it's about time!" which is a strange combination.

  2. Best part: He isn't returning the committee's phone calls. Too cool for the Nobels.


You're thinking it, you may as well type it. The only comments you'll regret are the ones you don't leave. Also, replies to threads make puppies grow big and strong.
