ok, i admit that i only watched 3 minutes of the grammy’s. | moby.com
i was there one year and i remember very distinctly the person who’d won ‘best polka record’ yelling ‘polka forever!!’ as a part of his acceptance speech. the 20 or 30 people in the staples center clapped perfunctorily. unfortunately the sound of 20 people clapping in a space designed to hold 18,000 is kind of depressing.

I didn’t watch any of it. Barrett attended. He wants to work within the music biz to champion music that he feels should be supported. I think that’s great and admire it, while preferring to sit here and play guitar.

    The grammy’s was an absolute joke. Immediately after an ok performance by the The Police, the show was miserable. I can not believe I watched a full hour before turning it off…

    Missed it – had a gig! But, I did check out the ripped posts of the Police on You Tube (back to the DRM topic, maybe?) – they still got it, and then some!
