Bob Dylan wins Nobel Prize for Literature

How amazing and surprising. I have enjoyed all his poetry over the years and think his newer music in some ways eclipses his older stuff in terms of it's depth of understanding and allusion.

Not sure he is in the same league as some of my favourites from the Nobel prize:

Marquez
Naruda (Dylan's poetry does not match his)
Hamsun
Steinbeck
Camus
Hemingway
Faulkner
Hesse

Still, it is not a cringeworthy prize as some have been over the years. An Example is Gao Xingjian, who's Soul Mountain I rushed into it on several recommendations and it is trite self-serving, boring and very anti-female.

"...and very anti-female."
You should hear my wife going on about women. Now she's 'anti-female' :)

Alison also is very critical of modern females and some feminists. THe only thing is do not try to offer your own opinions, seems we get it wrong!

I would love to hear either of them talk about women in general. Does Alison read SoL sometimes? Just today I listened to a clip of a smart woman finding her way in life. She had made a male dating profile on a dating site to investigate the female options and she explained how it was a very grim experience. I commented that bad women tend to group up against men, while good women seem to be horrified by other women, even more so than men are.

It's years since I've met a decent woman; not a single one stands out.
Yet strangely, I've run into two terrific examples, within the last two weeks, and both of them behind the counter in our new Island Dope-Shop. How unlikely is that?
One has "Be Love" tattooed on her arm, and manifests exactly that.
The other left a copy of taoteching on the coffee table, and I can see why.

Sometimes, amid a sea of dross, a pleasant surprise appears, out of a clear blue sky.
Thank God!

They must have come in a pair.
