Have Another Hit Of Colorado Sunshine
the grammys are a fucking retarded industry circlejerk and anybody who gives a shit about music shouldn't pay attention to them. "kingdom come" as even a nomination for rap album of the year? fucking please.
I hope Feist cleans up her categories
I can't believe anyone good gets a grammy nomination.
Meh; the grammys are always bullshit. Nominees are usually ones that sell the most records.
I do feel kinda fuzzy that LCD Soundsystem was nominated for best electronic album.
and of course we always bring up this time of year

The Common album and the Nas album are good. That's about all I see on there. Fucking Amy Winehouse, such a hack.
Justice got 3 nominations.
Bjork got 1.
Lily Allen got 1.
*random thought ends*
And aside from her fucked up life, Amy deserves the best new artist win. In addition to album of the year...not that Im saying her album was the best thing this year, but inside the catagory it is...

Sorry I wasn't paying attention I posted last year's list!
Sorry I'm at work doing six things at once...duh..
Whats funny is "Delilah " is done acoustically without the rest of the band. Thats basically the only song they play out here of the Plain White Tees....and theyre going to win a grammy for it? I wonder what the rest of the band thinks, lol...
You ever drunk Bailey's from a shoe?
Hold on, if Tom Waits wins best Americana album, does that mean he has to get up and get an acceptance speech?
I'm warming up the DVR already.
I've never heard about Plain White Ts, but reading your comments makes me guess I am one of the lucky ones.
Already said 100 times, but why would you be surprised? Especially for "Record Of The Year".
The Grammy's aren't quite as bad as the AMAs...there are usually some good things nominated, and occasionally something good will win. But "Record Of The Year" is usually something...not shitty, but just dull and overplayed. If a good artist does win, it's usually for something that's completely mediocre. For example, U2 has two Record Of The Year awards, from 2 years in a row..."Walk On" and "Beautiful Day". Decent songs, but I wouldn't even put them in U2's top 100.
It's usually either a bland new artist, or someone in the decline of their career. Plain White T's fit the first catagory, and probably the second.
There are a 110 categories as far as I know there isn't a gay category but you can always complain to them. They add categories all the time.
As you can see by the incorrect list I posted (sorry again) they only had a 108 categories at that time. Don't worry I won't post the correct one.
It's amazing to me how the show is around 2 to 3 hours and they only actually present very few of of those categories.
Mmm, yes, Great album and packaging from Menomena. I'm surprised the grammy people actually found out about it, though.Best Recording Package

I just wanted to point this out, because My Blue Heaven was on TV the other night, and my wife and I wondered if he was dead or something. He just kind of vanished after that awful Flintstones movie.
How come SCTV was SO funny (though it doesn't hold up now) and all those people had such mediocre careers, but all the SNL people become big stars?
