I just read being selected "left him speechless" and "honoured" and he will attend the ceremony "if at all possible".

Word is that Keith Richards has been nominated for a Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

I'm not at all surprised at the fact that he won't attend.

(I liked the Rex Murphy's comments in the shared video.)
"We've all heard that a million monkeys banging on a million typewriters will eventually reproduce the entire works of Shakespeare. Now, thanks to the Internet, we know this is not true."

I'm going to his Kelowna concert this summer.

I've seen Dylan twice before; about 15 years ago (double bill with Paul Simon) and 10 years or so ago in Calgary. After the Calgary show, I was left thinking that Bob doesn't have much left as a performer (though his band was absolutely top notch) and I wouldn't bother seeing him again. But it's Bob and he's coming here and this will be the last chance we'll get to see him, so a friend and I (both Dylan fans since our teens) couldn't resist.

Between Bob's performance chops, and the songs he's been playing lately (lots of Sinatra covers) I don't have high expectations. But like I said, it's Bob.
God forbid you ever had to walk a mile in his shoes
'cause then you really might know what it's like to sing the blues.

Is the world getting stupider, or is it just getting easier for stupid people to have their thoughts heard?
