I confess I still don't really see how I'm supposed to use it either.
If I want to play the sound of wind and stop it later I just do
But that's not using channels. If I want to use channels, I have to make a global variable 'wind' and go
wind = aWind.Play(); Is that correct?
Should I make 5 channels: sound1, sound2 etc, and decide myself what sound will be played on what channel?
If I want to use channels...
The matter of whether or not Mr. Dylan deserves to win even in this case is a matter of opinion though. I have none.
Anyway, giving an award to someone who seems a terrible choice is bound to make the award less respectable.
It's my limited definition of the word literature. Which in my mind, means prose not simply text or just writing.
Not a screenplay, not a song, but possibly a collection of poems though.
You also mention that Dylan's lyrics have been compiled into written prose and released as books of poetry.
But this is not what he won the award for: He won it for his performance of his lyrics which changed the hearts and minds of a generation, but would not have done so in purely the written form.
Problem with song-writing is that it tends to be secondary to the music, and in the particular case of Dylan it is arguably so-called low art. Yes, every kind of writing is writing, and one can term as art just about anything. That said, there is some difference between a song by Dylan, and a short story by Borges, and it is not in Dylan's favour.
Song writing is not literature. So yeah, definitely stupid.
