  1. Just finished reading Goslett’s article on Dylan being awarded the Noble Prize for Literature. Goslett inanely wrote ‘So Bob Dylan has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. He doesn’t seem particularly pleased about it.’ Because Dylan hasn’t responded regarding receiving the award that means he doesn’t seem particularly pleased? Dylan’s known to ignore the press. It’s been noted throughout his career that Dylan’s extremely private. Yet Goslett, who didn’t try to contact Dylan or his management, comes to his ridiculous conclusion. That’s just in reason why Goslett is a hack journalist . I could go on and on with other ridiculous quotes from Dylan used by Goslett in his article, but I’ve decided this is enough of my time spent thinking about Goslett.
