Shaking things up – prose and cons

Bob Dylan was just awarded the Nobel prize for Literature “for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition.”

What’s so wrong with that?

To the person who asked “does this mean that I can win a Grammy?” No!  It just means that people are taking more notice of great songwriting and poetry which have their place (or prose) in the writing world.  If so, then in my opinion Rodriguez (of searching for Sugarman fame) & Leonard Cohen should be next in line.

Maybe they should open it up to noteworthy artists who paint for a living.  They are like literature for the soul.  Open up a new category?  Something to think about?  I think so!
