Christmas In The Heart - Nobel Prize

So once again no Nobel Prize for Bob. Though he stands in one of the most ancient traditions of literature - that of the bard or minstrel who goes from town to town to tell the news in rhymes, as Allen Ginsberg put it. Guess we`ll have to wait some more years.

The Christmas album is out. I was rather sceptical about this project but after listening to it several times I must admit I like it. Bob seems to be having fun and sounds relaxed on most of the songs. And, above all, it`s a charity project so what can we complain about?

To His Coy Mistress

Don`t want to focus too much on literary themes, but with the nobel prize for literature approaching and everybody talking about bob in this connection, one more poem came to my mind that I have always loved: Andrew Marvell and his coy mistress.
