To Cheer Us Up

12 04 2008

Today is a Joni Mitchell day.


Saul Williams: List of Demands

5 04 2008

I think this is my new anthem. Day-um. SQ found it and I cannot quit listening. The damn shame of it all is she heard it in a commercial first.

Gots to say: Anthem for a new, very sad, political generation tired of the crap.

Also, Trent Reznor produced it.


It’s written on the palm of my hands.

Hour 4 of The Grammys (The Is It Over Yet Edition)

10 02 2008

10:30 So the gabbing and self-congratulatory hoohaw is over. I’m out. I’m hallucinating. I need an IV drip to take me back into the non-television/virtual world. Peace out, campers. Be sure to check your baggage and I hope you had a good flight.

10:27 I’m out. Thanks10:26 HERBIE HANCOCK wins Album of the year! Whoa, didn’t see that one coming. Joni Mitchell. If you’ve never hear Court And Spark I command you to go hear it right now.

10:25 Thankfully, and believe me I’m thankful. It’s almost over.

Hour 3 of The Grammys And The Benedryl Has Kicked In

10 02 2008

10:05 I’m not up to starting a new post as we enter hour THREE. **sigh** Why are Target commercials moderately cool and Wal-Mart commercials suck so bad that I fight the urge to throw myself into the road? Deep Thoughts from Newscoma.

9:58 Saying goodbye. I liked Robert Goulet. He was fun. Bye folks. I didn’t know Luther Ingram had died. Bad year for Opera with the loss of Luciano and Beverly Sills.

9:50 Twitter is popping on the Grammy talk. And highlights of the night: Vince Gill and Kanye West as well as Amy Winehouse saying “To my Blake who is incarcerated.” The Benedryl is making me hallucinate penguins reading election speeches but I realized I had accidentally turned the channel to CSpan.

Hour 2 Of The Grammys

10 02 2008

9:00 It’s almost hour three. Hell, why not as I speak to myself . Keely Smith needed to sing on her own campers. Grammy for Rock Album goes to The Foo Fighters. Woot.

8:56 Feist is always fun.

8:55 My mother made me listen to Tapesty by Carole King every day of my life during 3rd and 4th grade. She looks great. EVERY DAY People. Fiest is up.

8:54 I’m distracted by a story I just saw about people born with tails. I can’t help it.

8:50 Here’s a list of who’s one so far. Icky Thump won. Woot.

8:43 There isn’t anything better than cool trumpets.

The Grammys Where There Might Be Snark

10 02 2008

First Hour- The wine is poured and I have a cold so at any moment I might explode.

7:56 Just experimenting here and the cold has the best of me. I’ll check in periodically. And why isn’t anyone talking about Rhianna’s Wheat dress? Waiting on Amy Winehouse. I know she’s a hot mess but I think she’s cool. I may move into hour two on a new post. Maybe, maybe not.

This is very cool.


Now, if you want to know who this is, you have to go here because he’s one of Tennessee’s best and brightest.
