It's all crap.

Wow. Apparently the Grammys were last night. I didn't even notice... not that I would have cared. There was a time in my life when I wouldn't miss watching the Grammys. On the off chance I did miss them, I'd grab the paper first thing and see who won. Now, I look at the list of nominees and winners and of the stuff I even recognize, I just scratch my head and marvel at just how shitty popular music has become, and how that awards show has become less about recognizing talent and performance and more about rewarding good marketing.

I think the ultimate irony for that show would be if when the winner went up to accept their award, they played the purchasable ringtone of the song, instead of the actual song.

No... I was saying that if they did do that, it would be the ultimate irony.

hmmmmm
That would explain why so many good movies were on TV last night--for those of us who would rather be watching anything besides that farce. Next year, they'll probably *advertise* the purchasable ringtone directly after the award is announced. Why just play it when you can get people to buy it?

crap is being kind
Sad friggin' state of affairs, ain't it?

it's gone the same way as radio, so we shouldn't be surprised
at the roster of 'who the fuck ARE these people?'

You're fortunate to live in a city with one of the
last remaining bastions of good rock radio. I stream
KFOG at work all day, every day.
