The 2007 Shammy Awards

First: didn't catch the first 1/2 hour or so of the Grammys. Just the farce that was the other 7 1/2 hours.

When a music awards show leaves me saying "Thank GOD for Christina Aguliera," stick a fork in Civilization, cuz it's done.

Justin Timberlake is a great live performer too.

Again, fork.

Other than that, first-class ticket to Suxville.

Oh and John Mayer is also pretty good, but if he performed live I didn't catch it.

What the hell is a Rascal Flatz or whatever it's called when it's at home (which is somewhere in a time machine locked at circa The Billy-Ray Syrus Years)? To have the ability to render Hotel California shitty; well, that's monumental. I mean, Karaoke singers around the world routinely do better.

Who was that woman with a large autumnal floral arrangement in her green hair? She fascinates and terrifies me...I must hear her music.

Not to be cruel, but what's up with Mandy Moore? Yikes.

Carrie Underwood: I won't attack her personally, but American Idol is officially the shrieking, chord-run infested death-knell of the pop recording industry. Soon will come plagues. One-third of all living things shall die. The sea shall be as blood. It will be Stadium Arcadium, everywhere.

Yeah, sadly enough I opted for more interesting fodder for the grey matter in the old cranium... Desperate Housewives is a great show to kick back, enjoy women looking "pretty hot" in their 40s all while reminiscing of other shows like Melrose Place... I wanted to tune in and see Neil and Nelly and the "Police" too, but not so much. I am sick of all this "patting on the back" that Hollywood does at this time of year. Get off your self-righteous soap boxes (stop sampling classics) and start creating some ORIGINAL stuff!

Sorry 'bout the natter my friends...

Wasn't there any wild n crazy rock n roll antics for you to regale us with? What's the music world coming to these days, with it's well-behaved rappers and such...?

A-mal: I missed the Police and I heard it was good...that I would've liked to see. Word on the "original" factor, yo. It's like the freaking Republican National Convention at these things now.

Kav: do I say this? You see, it's just...uh...well, I know you're a Chili Peppers fan, but was like watching paint dry. Flea was wearing a yellow footballer's outfit and a sweatband on his head, and he kinda jumped once, sort of. That was the pinnacle of their rock antics. He should be downgraded to 'Fly' or possibly 'Ladybug.' Sorry! I was kinda counting on them to sock-n-balls us or something...ANYTHING....FOR THE LOVE OF GOD...But there were no antics to be had. It was all like a really loud lullaby. I'm sorry. I'm so very sorry.

Personally, I'm holding out for the Brit Awards.

yes...i watched the 'shammy' awards too.

mary j., please.....too much. this is the result of protools people. everything is made up in the studio. then they try and recreate it on stage and it don't always work. that ludicrous tune was ludicrous...

justin timberlake was the most real/fun/loose/in the moment thing i saw. everything else was bullshit. people singing from the top of the titanic or on top of a mountain with 'autotuned' vocals. thank god for real music and the internet. you ain't gonna see much of that at the Grammy's. it's becoming redundant, main stream tv and music. much, much too much sugar. red hot chilis were great, full of life and unique at one point, for sure. Now, you're seeing a studio band that should have taken a break or quit. i mean, that song is shit. it's very A,BB,A,BB,CC. it's like watching a copy and paste job on tv.

i'll stop there.

it was shite. perhaps the first 30 mins were good. and i do have an open mind! i love ALL types of music. but last night...i didn't hear much 'music'. i heard stale, safe, boring repeats. not alotta life there. I mean...rap and hip hop was cool and vibrant and it's gone kmart...just like nickelback rock.

I wonder if they've gone drugtacular again...? Don't think there will be much excitement at the Brits either. Everyone's got an agenda these days.

Oooh that's sounds a bit too 'Dire Straits' for me...

It was definitely dire. And come to think of it, not too strait...

Welcome, Treason. (That sounds quite Shakespearean, don't you think?)
