William Faulkner accepts the 1949 Nobel Prize for Literature

Look for him around 6:45 in the video. Earlier you can see him sitting next to Bertrand Russell who also won.

This is what Bob Dylan has to look forward to if he goes to the ceremony. White tie and tails and a bow to the King.

Another Side Of Bob Dylan ( His 4th Album)

Click on the above picture to enlarge it.
 Congratulations to Bob Dylan the Nobel Laureate For Literature for 2016.
Way to go Bob. Now you belong to the ages.

  Below is an excerpt from the liner notes on the back of the album Another Side of Bob Dylan:

(swingin' wanda's
down in new orleans
rumbles across
brick written
swear word
vulgar wall
in new york city)

no they can't make it
off the banks of their river
i am in their river
(i wonder if he jumped
i really wonder if he jumped)
i turn corner
t' get off river
an' get off river
still goin' up
i about face
an' discover
that i'm on another river

(this time. king rex
blesses me with plastic beads
an' toot toot whistles
paper rings an' things.
royal street.
bourbon street
st. claude an' esplanade
pass an' pull
everything out of shape
joe b. stuart
white southern poet
holds me up
we charge through casa
blazin' jukebox
gumbo overflowin'
get kicked out of colored bar
streets jammed
hypnotic stars explode
in louisiana murder night
everything's wedged
arm in arm
stoned galore
must see you in mobile then
down governor nichel
an' gone)

It will be interesting to see what he does with the money.
His acceptance speech should really be something.
If he attends the ceremony he will have to wear a tux.

Tuba Skinny 'Someday Sweetheart', Steamboat Stomp New Orleans, 9/24/16

Tuba Skinny @ Duke Heitger's 4th Annual Steamboat Stomp, September 23rd ...

I've been waiting for this one and the above to show up on you tube. Yay!
Published on Oct 5, 2016
Top Deck this wonderful warm and sunny afternoon onboard Paddle Steamer The Natchez, cruising up and down the mighty Mississippi, Tuba Skinny made their first appearance on the River. Quoting from Steamboat Stomp's presentation: "Tuba Skinny came together in New Orleans in 2009 as a loose collection of street musicians and has since evolved to a fully formed professional band. Their unique sound evokes the rich musical heritage of New Orleans from the early jazz and blues and the twenties and thirties, ragtime, and traditional jazz. The band consists of tuba, trombone, cornet, tenor banjo/guitar,
vocals, washboard, and occasionally clarinet. The band has gained a loyal following through their  sound, their commitment to reviving long-lost songs, and their barnstorming live performance

This one above is from a show in London.

The artist selecting his objects.
Here he is hard at work.

An artist in William Faulkner's novel WILD PALMS tells a man at a party in the French Quarter in the 1920s that she makes sculptures that when you drop them they hurt your foot.
