I used to really like that spoilered band, back in college when their debut album was huge and everyone and their brother had the CD.

Now I can't stand them. The sound of her voice is like nails on a freaking chalkboard.

Just yesterday I heard a Chinese version of Dreams, which was weird.

Cori, this is idiotic, but for some reason every time I see your sig I want to change my sig to "Beware the metal hand of Robo-no", and have some sort of Robot Bono picture in it. Why, I don't know.

Ha!

I usually change my sig every so often, but I just love this one too much. It seems so fitting to have around these parts these days.

I owe Cathal a drink when I see him in town for the Seattle show, for letting me steal it.

*Eminem is the bob dylan of our time

*bitches that the only award white artist/bitches that they gave herbie Hancock and esparanza spalding awards

* bitches that when Hancock won, it was the only time in decades that a jazz album has won (greedy jazz musicians!!)

*steely Dan quietly came and went (ya, because they were a new band when they won, right?)

Steve stoute is a complete twat and is more out of touch with music than the ones he criticizes.

Steve Stoute had me until he claimed to be a "music fan," which was I think the 3rd sentence.

What does this string of textual diarrhea even mean?

"While we cannot solely utilize album sales as the barometer, this was certainly not the case. Not only is Eminem the best-selling artist of the last decade, but The Marshall Mathers LP was a critical and commercial success that sold over 10 million albums in the United States (19 million worldwide), while Steely Dan sold less than 10% of that amount and came and went as quietly as a church mouse."

Especially the first sentence. Does it mean anything? What the fuck is he even trying to say there?

Apart from the fact that it's incredibly arrogant to think he should put an open letter in the NYT as some sort of voice of reason, he's clearly just bitter that his favourite type of music doesn't win all the time

If he was going to throw around chart data, there was really no point in using that first sentence. He needs to just set aside the bullshit and make it quite clear that, yes, he loves hip-hop, and yes, the Grammys are run by old men whose hearing aids don't work well with such bass-heavy frequencies. I agree with all of that.

Steely Dan coming and going as quietly as a church mouse, as if they had zero cultural impact is laughable though. I have hip-hop and classic rock stations loaded into my FM band, and I hear more tracks from Can't Buy A Thrill than Marshall Mathers LP overall. I can, of course, buy that he has had a greater influence on the music scene of today (although his relevance is already fading, so don't apply this post to the music scene of the 2030s), but then he had to go and compare him to Bob Dylan. No more playing devil's advocate for me.

In closing: dude needs to start watching the VMAs instead.

Also, Two Against Nature is inferior to Kid A and Midnite Vultures, and that's coming from someone who's a big enough Steely Dan fan to have bothered with the album. That was actually a solid year for Best Album. This year's was total shit except for Suburbs.

Scored floor tickets to Vegas, never seen them before. Actually only started listening in January, and then I started really getting into it, before they won the grammy (i swear). any tips on what i should expect at the show?

One of the best live music experiences of your life.
 
In my revered opinion, of course.

cool, (wo)man. I only saw them for the first time last year and the show was awesome! Just be read for a aurally induced orgasm. You're lucky in that, by just getting into them, you've got 3 albums worth of great songs that are new to you

Hopefully the site doesn't crap out for you like it did for all my friends during the presale yesterday.
