      Yeah, it’s really creepy when you read your words under somebody else’s byline.

      Try to not let it bother you. I know it sounds stupid.
      Don’t let it eat at you.
      Wait. Revenge is sweet.

    Maybe it’s plagiarism that’s the truest form of flattery. LOL

    He looks about 100 years old.

      At least his hair has not turned gray.

      Do you think that he is still alive and percolating?

    • Norman_In_New_York

      He is 76 and most likely needed the notes to recall classics he hadn’t read in years.

    I don’t know how these olde fuckers keep going.
    Especially the ones-that think they are Politicians.
    It scares me to think of their Legacy.
    I am sick and tired of them.

    I dispute the description of Dylan as “the greatest songwriter of the 20th Century.” His melodies are pedestrian and lyrics loaded with obscurities. I’ll take Cole Porter.

    The Nobel Committee officially made itself a silly irrelevant reality show. They handed out the so called greatest prize in the world to an angry stoner who writes pop tunes, or did, 40 years ago, and he turns around, because he’s such a wonderful ‘author’, and rips off his acceptance speech, a YEAR after he even refused to show up to get his shiny medal.

    I doubt the Nobel Committee has even read any of the works of an author they handed out the literature prize to since 2002 when they gave it to Imre Kertesz. Look at the list – it’s nearly all political, left wing propaganda that checks all the SJW boxes. And, by the way, most of the winners on the last 20 years are proud and vocal antisemites.

      Like the UN, the Nobel Prize has compromised itself into irrelevance.

    So?

    And I mean just look at Shakespeare. All he did was string together famous quotes with some filler in between and he’s famous.
