Column: Bob Dylan A Sudden, Deserving, Nobel Laureate That Is Poetic

Watch out kid, it’s something you did.

Perhaps this: “created new poetic sayings within the American song tradition” That is how Stockholm’s Nobel Academy sums up the achievement of Bob Dylan, who was granted the 2016 Nobel Prize for Literature.

It’s a stunning announcement. Not because of Dylan’s worldwide popularity, but in a time when the best poets are famous to readers of journals that are obscure, but also because it sets a precedent.

Dylan is the first musician.

Though proposed previously, he was generally considered out of the running, since his poetry happens to be sung. Academy secretary Sara Danius begged to disagree. “Bob Dylan writes poetry for the ear,” she said. “But it’s perfectly fine to see his works.”

“It makes perfect sense, it’s late if anything,” says David Wills of Woodcliff Lake, who like “Ghosty” hosts the Vintage Rock & Pop Shop  series at 11 a.m. Sundays, and Retro Radio at 6 a.m. Tuesdays on WFDU 89.1-FM. “If you were to look at his lyrics, as if they were the sonnets of Byron, that are thought about literature, or anyone who has written poetry, then do the lyrics as divorced from the songs rack up? They obviously do. In fact, the music often takes a back seat”

There is another way that Dylan is an candidate for this specific prize.

Alfred Nobel and his awards’ history is well known. In a nutshell — or maybe bombshell — Alfred Bernhard Nobel was the 19th century chemist who eventually became one of the world arms manufacturers, and invented dynamite.

Back in 1888, a French newspaper printed his obituary by error (it was actually his brother who died). The lead of the story read: “Dr. Alfred Nobel, who became rich by discovering ways to kill more people faster than previously, died yesterday.” His ways, by this glance of he would be viewed by posterity, such as Ebenezer Scrooge , he changed.

He didn’t give up dynamite. But he did establish the Nobel Peace Prize, that gave a number of his arms-gotten gains to folks who’ve “done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies…” As Gore Vidal remarked years later, “one must never underestimate the Swedish sense of humor.”

Nobel established four other prizes: in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, and Literature. These things must do with world peace might be vague. But of course, Nobel had noble things in mind: that the literary award, established in 1901, was to be given to the author who made “in the field of literature the most outstanding work in an perfect direction.” Whether “perfect” — “idealisk” in Swedish — supposed “idealistic” in the sense of dedicated to a worthy goal, or “ideal” as in ideal, has been a topic of debate ever since. Suffice it to say, over the years such worthy authors as Chekhov, Tolstoy, Ibsen, Henry James and James Joyce were denied the prize for being insufficiently “idealistic.”

That brings us back.

Here is a writer who’s artistically ideal. He changed the direction of pop music by bringing poetry. Without him, The Beatles would have spent their career singing “yeah yeah yeah.” Jimi Hendrix would have been a better-than-average blues guitarist. Without him, there might have been no Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, Velvet Underground, Donovan, Counting Crows, Joni Mitchell, David Bowie, P.J. Harvey, Leonard Cohen, hip-hop artists such as Common or Talib Kweli or just about anybody who made audio after 1965.

In relation to “idealism” — in the sense which Nobel might have supposed it — Dylan’s effect is equally devastating.

What artist said more, and said it bitingly, on the field of peace and war? What artist had more of an effect — in terms of his music changing the direction of public sentiment national coverage?

1960s peace rallies mobilized to the strains of Blowin’ in the Wind? How many idealistic children played with The Times They Are A-Changin’ to parents that couldn’t know what of this counterculture stuff was about? How many Vietnam vets felt that they heard their story told for the very first time at a tough Rain’s Gont Fall?

“Dylan painted with words and music, I’d almost say, beyond almost anyone else from the age, an idealistic picture of what the world may be,” said musician and NJPAC executive producer David Rodriguez of Englewood,N.J.

How many poets could claim to have called a radical underground protest group (The Weathermen was inspired by a line in Subterranean Homesick Blues: “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.”) ? How many could claim to have changed pubic sentiment to a important legal situation: that of Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, the boxer accused of murder (although a few folks, especially in the crime scene of Paterson, N.J., could take issue with Dylan’s Hurricane)?

What artist stuck it to the Alfred Nobels of the planet like Dylan?

Jimmy Fallon As Bob Dylan Takes Aim At Trump, Hosts Songversation With Justin Timberlake

In the clip taken in black and white, Fallon dons wig a guitar and glasses to carry out without mentioning him by 36, his rendition of the 1964 song that takes jabs at President Trump.  

The late night host croons: “Come Men and Women who hashtag Me Too / And believe me when I say we believe you / For weak is the Person who calls Fact ‘fake news’ / Time’s up, our silence we’re breaking”

In another verse, he provides reporters his support.

Justin Timberlake, with Sunday’s halftime performer, he also spent some time for the special of Fallon.

Fallon along with his pal and collaborator had a songversation, which involves a mixture of talking and singing. Confused? After the two realized they had vastly different plans for the major match  — with Timberlake performing and Fallon reaping the benefits of a seven-layer dip he made with the assistance of Pinterest —  both belted out “We lead two distinct lives, two different lives.”

See more of the songvo from the clip over. (Please forgive us for “using abbreviations, shortening words in an attempt to seem trendy and young” like Timberlake and Fallon.)

Tourist Spots Increase Observable Security But Look For Procedures That Are More Subtle

ORLANDO — Expect to see more security at resorts, parks, your favorite theme parks, cruise ships as well as holiday condos due to Sunday’s massacre — and this could cost you additional cash — safety specialists say.

However, some businesses expect the tide of the future will be safety enhancements that you don’t notice.

In 2015, Disney World started putting metal detectors in front of four of its theme parks. Universal Orlando started using wand-style metal detectors in an area leading to district and its parks. And SeaWorld Orlando also began using sensors that were wand-style.

“We have been blessed and never had an issue park attack and hopefully that never occurs,” explained  Rick Munarriz, a senior analyst with The Motley Fool.   “If updates are happening, they will pass the costs down and I think people will know and cover more as just the purchase price of security.”

Head of this Ohio-based International Theme Park Services consultants, Dennis Speigel, anticipates hotels and resorts to put greater emphasis on spotting behavior and alerting authorities.

“The average Joe coming to the park wishes to have a good time and be safe, and he wants his family to be secure,” Speigel said. “If it takes a little additional screening and wanding or another security measures, he does not care because of the carnage we have experienced.”

The telephone didn’t happen Sunday. It occurred Sept. 11, 2001, in part because government officials worried about Kennedy Space Center, Patrick Air Force Base and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on the Space Coast following the first foreign strikes on U.S. soil since Pearl Harbor.

Yet all of Central Florida is vulnerable since it’s as much of a playground for families as Las Vegas is a playground for adults.

In addition to Orlando-area theme parks, the Atlantic Coast  includes  Port Canaveral, No. 2 in the country in the amount of passengers that come for cruises; and Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, where  over 1.5 million people gather every year to learn more about the space system.   The Tampa Bay area has the Salvador Dalí Museum, the Ybor City community with cigar shops and restaurants, bars as well as Busch Gardens theme park.

Concertgoers have near a dozen music festivals to select from throughout the year from the Atlantic to Gulf coasts.

“We’ve been ramping up security more and more,” explained Gary McCann, executive producer of the Runaway Country Music Fest. “It’s something we review each year.”

The three-day outdoor country music concert will probably possess its own eighth run March 23 to 25 in Kissimmee, Fla., and generally attracts 12,000 to 15,000 people.

At his festival, concertgoers traveling through metal detectors are scanned and have their bags. Plus plainclothes security guards patrol and movie cameras are on continuous surveillance.

“This kind of evil, I don’t think there is a way to stop all of it,” McCann said of this vegas shooter who put up in a hotel across the street from the Route 91 Harvest Festival.   “Every venue around the globe” likely now is reviewing its safety strategies.

Hotels that are contemplating increased safety have to walk a fine line, ” said  Jerry Trachtman of Melbourne, Fla., a founding member along with a publisher of Living Safer magazine.

A search of guests’ bag, something similar to what’s done in Israel, might have found the weapons cache of Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock. But some lodgers would observe such  searches as invasions of privacy as the terror of Sunday gets more distant.

“I don’t believe the hotels want to be seen as intrusive and lose business,” Trachtman said.

Orlando-based Westgate Resorts announced earlier this year that it introduced a new concealed weapons detection program at its Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino, a nearly 3,000-room resort with a convention and casino centre just.

The company also hopes to deploy systems Westgate Resorts chief operating officer, in places across the country, Mark Waltrip. In Florida, it’s 9,000 units, mostly timeshares that are condo-style.

The programmer of the machine, Patriot One Technologies, explains it as a “an effective tool to fight active-shooter threats before they happen.” It may be set up in halls and doorways alert security and to identify weapons.

Individuals who attend concerts or football games perhaps go to the movies — are becoming more aware of their “what-ifs.” They’re more likely to be planning their exit strategy in case somebody  starts.

“It is just a commentary on the way things are right now,” Trachtman explained. “It’s terrible that we have to live in a world that we must do this. But the public should be conscious. As Bob Dylan once said: ‘The times, they are a-changin.’ “

Bob Dylan Archives Land In Oklahoma, Near Guthrie Museum

TULSA, Okla. –  Over 6,000 items of Bob Dylan memorabilia such as handwritten lyrics to Tangled Up In Blue and his first contract with a music publisher have found a home in Oklahoma close to a museum honoring one of his major influences, folk singer Woody Guthrie.

The archives from Dylan’s six-decade profession, obtained from the George Kaiser Family Foundation and the University of Tulsa for about $15 million and $20 million, also consist of early records from 1959 and a wallet that has Johnny Cash’s former address and phone number.

Dylan, who’s originally from Minnesota, said he’s glad the archives located a house and the Tulsa place makes a great deal of feel, “to be contained with the functions of Woody Guthrie and notably together with all of the precious artifacts from the Native American Nations.”

“It’s a great honor,” Dylan said in a statement.

A couple of things were already on display Wednesday in the Gilcrease Museum, including Dylan’s cigarette-stained lyrics to Chimes of Freedom on stationary by the Waldorf Astoria hotel in Toronto and early iterations of Visions of Johanna written on sheets by a yellow legal pad.

“The only damage is Bob’s coffee stains and cigarette spots,” said Michael Chaiken, the inaugural curator of the group.

Nearly 1,000 items have arrived up to now at the university’s Helmerich Center for American Research, which is connected with the city’s Gilcrease Museum. Transferring the archive will take up to two decades.

Exhibits will eventually be on screen in the Brady Arts District of Tulsa, near the museum, although the trove of memorabilia will be housed at the memorial.

Guthrie’s archives were obtained by the George Kaiser Family Foundation at 2011 for $3 million, and the Woody Guthrie Center is a area of the city’s centerpiece.

Landing Guthrie’s archives in Tulsa laid the groundwork University of Tulsa president Steadman Upham said Wednesday.

“Obtaining Woody back to Oklahoma created a foundation that started to explore the rich musical history of the city,” he said. “I believe it was those things together. Bob Dylan did not want this to be another item on the shelf; he desired this to be special.”

Chaiken stated Tulsa’s standing as a working city and a crossroads for several genres of music make it an perfect choice to house Dylan’s archive rather than institutions and cities which lobbied for its acquisition.

“With everything with Bob, it is a tiny bit of a sideways movement,” Chaiken said in a meeting. “No disrespect to among the Ivy League schools, but I believe there is something endearing about it going to Tulsa and not visiting an Ivy League school.”

In relation to “idealism” — in the sense which Nobel might have meant it Dylan’s effect is just as devastating.

What artist said more, also said it bitingly, about the subject of peace and war? What artist had more in relation to his music altering the management of public opinion, even federal coverage?

Just how many 1960s peace rallies mobilized into the breeds of Blowin’ in the Wind? How many idealistic children played with The Times They Are A-Changin’ to baffled parents who could not understand what all this counterculture stuff was about? How many Vietnam vets felt that they heard their story told for the very first time at a tough Rain’s Gonna Fall?

British Writer Kazuo Ishiguro Wins 2017 Nobel Prize For Literature

LONDON — The Japanese-born British writer Kazuo Ishiguro won the 2017 Nobel Prize for Literature on Thursday, the awarding Swedish Academy said.  

Ishiguro, 62,  who’s famous  for novels such as A Pale View of Hills (1982), The Remains of the Day (1989) and Never Let Me Go (2005), wins $1.1 million.

The academy said his books   show   “great emotional force” and  uncover   “the abyss under our illusory sense of relationship with the world.”  

In Ishiguro’s Latest work, The Buried Giant (2015), an Older couple go on a

Road trip through an English landscape, hoping to return. The novel movingly explores  fantasy to reality, background to the current — and how memory relates into oblivion.  

Ishiguro was born at Nagasaki, Japan in 1954. His family moved to Britain when he was five-years-old and he returned to see his country of birth just as an adult.  

Ishiguro’s win will be looked at by most in the publishing world as a choice by the academy following year, in one of the decisions in the trophy’s history, American singer and poet.

The Swedish Academy said Dylan won “for having created fresh poetic expressions over the great American song tradition” However, lengthy discussion was sparked by the decision, such as about whether song lyrics should be qualified from Dylan himself.

Among the top contenders preferred by bookmakers this year were: Japan’s Haruki Murakami, 68, whose novels   fuse the realistic and the fantastic, and Kenya’s Ngugi wa Thiong’o, 79, whose political perform forced him to leave Africa for the United States.

The Nobel Prize in Literature has been awarded 110 occasions to 114 Nobel Laureates between 1901 and 2017. In 2015, the Academy made an choice in giving the award to Belarus’ Svetlana Alexievich. Her journalism and non-fiction works explore topics related to the rest of the Soviet Union.

Alfred Nobel’s prescriptions for the prize   were vague. He said it should go annually to “the most outstanding work in an ideal direction.”

The prize has been won by only 14 women. On four occasions, the award was shared between two  individuals. The youngest laureate was Rudyard Kipling the oldest. She was 88 when she won the trophy.  

Joachim Frank, Richard Henderson and Jacques Dubochet, three researchers based at the U.S., U.K. and Switzerland, respectively, won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry on Wednesday for Improvements in electron microscopy.

The medicine prize went to three Americans studying circadian rhythms: Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young. The physics prize went to Rainer Weiss, Barry Barish and Kip Thorne for detecting gravitational waves. The peace prize is going to be announced.

The awarding of this peace prize comes amid disagreement about whether Aung San Suu Kyi — that won the prize should be stripped of their honour. The leader of Myanmar has drawn international condemnation because of the defense of the country’s treatment of its own Rohingya population, a minority group.

Rohingya have been fleeing Myanmar in the thousands for Bangladesh. The United Nations has characterized Myanmar’s treatment of Rohingya as a “textbook case of ethnic cleansing.”

For the peace prize, President Trump has been nominated for the second year in a row. Any person or organization may be nominated by anyone qualified to nominate.

Eligible nominators, according to the academy, include but aren’t limited to: university chancellors, professors of social and political science and other disciplines; leaders of peace research institutes; members of national assemblies, governments, and global courts of law; and previous Nobel peace prize laureates.
