General discussion / Bob Dylan gets Nobel Prize for Literature
« on: October 13, 2016, 01:04:13 PM »
Worth a thread - His Bobness finally gets recognised for being the supreme poet of the past 50 years.

A few of my favourite lines

"He not busy being born is busy dying"

"In a little hill top village they gambled for my clothes, I bargained for salvation and she gave me a lethal dose"

"Princes on a steeple and all the pretty people, they're all drinkin', thinkin' that they got it made"

"I don't compromise, and I don't pretend, and I don't even care, if I see her again - most of the time"

"The ghost of electricity howls in the bones of her face"

"They say that patriotism is the last refuge to which a scoundrel clings, steal a little and they throw you in jail, steal a lot and they make you king"

"Crash on the levee momma, water's gonna over throw, swamps gonna rise and no boats gonna row"

"There must be some kind of way out of here, said the Joker to the thief"

"Don't even hear the murmur of a prayer, It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there"

"When you're lost in the rain in Juarez and it's Easter time too, and your gravity fails and negativity won't pull you through, don't put on any airs when you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue, they've got some hungry women there and they'll really make a mess out of you."


Hundreds of others I could think of.

Congrats Bob.

Looks like something very grim is unfolding across Paris this evening. Shootings in multiple locations, at least one bomb and reporters from various sources saying many bodies on the streets. God help anyone caught up in this.

He ruptured his ankle ligaments playing five a side - out of the British Open. Lump on Spieth.
