Twittering the Grammys

The main question coming into this year's Grammys is -- might they actually not be totally lame this year? I'll believe it when I see it, but the shockingly relevant list of nominees and performers leaves me optimistic, at least as much as I can be about a self-congratulatory industry award show.

I'm expecting a big night for Coldplay, whose latest album was popular with fans, critics and is ready to establish itself as the Huge Rock Band of this generation. I'll be updating constantly, J. Freedom might feed me some lines and ... sorry, I'm hypnotized by Chris Martin's blue eyes right now.

It's an old song.

It's an old guy.

And still, any time McCartney plays "I Saw Her Standing There," it shakes the paint off the walls.

Actually, those were some superb riffs. He was the only one who could hang with BB King.

The Dirty Dozen? Five musicians and four dancers???

If they want to bring the house down, bring on Fats Domino and the Dixie Cups (who were living in NOLA and had to be rescued).

Nice hats. They're going to go on Huggy Low Down's "Bama of the Week" list.

J Free-
According to the Simpson's, along with “skedaddle,” “Nixonian,”
“zounds,” and “mimeograph”, the word “hootenanny" has been removed from the lexicon. Please refrain from using in the future.
