Bob Dylan is upsetting folk and it makes me chuckle.
The man has been awarded the Nobel price for literature, and that in itself has been enough to kick-off heated discussions all over the media. To top it all now another wave of opinions hits us, because, a member of the price awarding committee has proclaimed how impolite and arrogant Dylan’s silence is; having received this greatest of accolades.
Dylan has been kicking and challenging the establishment for well over fifty years now.This does not mean he is not secretly part of it. What does one expect of him, now the establishment wants to embrace him in the most official way thinkable.
My approach would be to accept the price, give a blistering speech about all that is wrong with the world and, since no need for it myself, give the money to victims of war. Enough choice.
Dylan, the myth, for sure is enjoying himself right now
