  i wasn't really expecting much (well, anything) from the Grammys this year, but i still can't help being disappointed.  There were some amazing nominations this year, Foo Fighters, Death Cab, Common, Franz Ferdinand, the list goes on.  Strangely enough, the awards didn't go to the best artists, or even the worst artists.  Instead, all the nominations went to they guys who whored themselves out to every ipod, car, and Louis' Big Barn Burger Palace commercial on the air. 



 It's not the competance of the judges (or lack there of) or the seeming absence of musical taste present--i expect those at every awards shin dig on basic cable.  No, what gets me is the fact that the artists that received the most awards were the ones who so readily sold their music to the MAN.  The most popular awards - Best Pop, Rock, Album, etc - went to the most circulated songs (cough U2) on the other hand, it was the less popular awards, like oh say Best Electronic/Dance Album, Best Reggae, hell! even Best Polka, that seemed to have at least some thought in the nominations. 

  Isn't it the least bit alarming that we reward the artists who are the quickest to sell their songs, like stock?  Or even worse, that we PUSH the artists to sell in the first place--had Foo Fighters tagged their songs onto every ipod commercial, or if Common had gone out and said George Bush didn't care about black people, i'm sure they would have gotten the Grammy. 

Oh well, doesn't matter anyway.  Congrats to Kanye, Damon Albarn, Jamie Hewlett, and Les Paul. 


P.S.  What's the difference between Best Album and Best Record?

Bought a pair of jeans to-day (emoticon heart)

oh, and i bought my cousin a gift certificate for x-mas/missed birthday...i guess.

while i was shopping at ebgames for his certificate, i overheard two gamers talking*,
"i love when i ask someone if they play xenogears and they say yes. i instantly know i'll like the person."
"uh huh"
"yeah, when i meet a girl, i ask her if she plays xenogears."

i wish i had talked to them after all, would have been an interesting conversation.

*not exactly how overheard-conversation went, i'm not *that* much of a snoop to memorize someoneelse's conversation**

**wait, yes i am...
