Really? He's been traveling around the world his whole life. What's the big deal with going to Sweden? Too far?

More importantly, with what credentials are you any judge of this?

Dylan doesn't mingle or make his work for the intellectuals, he's more of an Appalachian type. Dylan's response to the uproar regarding his tongue-in-cheek use of plagiarism and disregard for the award could be:

"What's it to ya, Moby Dick?
This is chicken town!"

I can't believe he's hawking this thing as a book.
Then again, I guess he'll sell everything.

Being 76, he is probably somewhat burnt out and lazy -

Perhaps, if viewed relative to some of the past Bobs.
Certainly not, though, when compared to the general population.
Bob's no couch potato.

Well, there is SOME original Dylan writing in there - so it's a collectible!

And it's an awesome way for Bob to tell his critics - "Hey, go "F" yourselves!"

As I mentioned before, it's kind of like when Bob went electric - but on another level.

Wait until the early '18 release of Bob Dylan: The Complete Pubic Shavings 1962-2017.
The ultimate box set for Dylan hardcore enthusiasts.

Alternatively, charge them 17 dollars a pop for it.

We have to understand: Bob is not just a singer/songwriter/performer/bandleader/poet/artist - he is a star and that means: He is an industry.

Maybe it's padded with lengthy excerpts from Moby Dick!?

Following this publication, Moby Dick - by Bob Dylan. Legacies have to be tended, and fanboy/girl demand must be satisfied. :mrgreen:

Sure, 5 previously unpublished photos of Dylan's back pondering the Nobel Prize. Plus two showing him in a dimly lit study trying to remember who was who in "Moby Dick".

Based on the history of boring same/same concert programs & posters, lyric books, etc, wouldn't expect too much here from Dylan, Inc.
