Okay, get this - "Devils and Dust" by Bruce Springsteen, which struck me as yet another anti-war whine/grunt when I saw the video about 20 times on CMT (Country Music Television), gets nominated for Song of the Year, Best Solo Rock Performance, Best Rock Song, Best Contemporary Folk Album, and Best Long Form Music Video.
Kanye "Bush-doesn't-care-about-black-people" West scores 8 nominations.
Green Day, whose frontman says he "would throttle US President GEORGE W BUSH if the two were left alone together - and he'd enjoy doing it.", scores only 1 nomination for Record of the Year.
And finally, the Dixie Chicks get two nominations for "I Hope", a song they wrote for the Katrina relief effort, but did not release for airplay.
Should make for a wonderful evening! Tune in Feb 8th for some wonderous Bush-bashing and anti-war preachin'!
Experts in Domestic and Foreign Affairs...er...I mean Grammy Nominee Ping!
Grammys = Music Industry Mutual Appreciation and Bum Sniffing Gala
Since the soft A/C station where I work now is airing the syndicated John Tesh show overnight - with spots for two local songs an hour as well - It's not uncommon to hear the dang, whining, angst song three or even four time between midnight and 5A!
Even though I'm a >traditional< country western/blue grass fan, I'll admit the lyrics are kinda cool...
FYI here are a few
BREATHE - 2AM
2 AM and she calls me 'cause I'm still awake,
"Can you help me unravel my latest mistake?,
I don't love him. Winter just wasn't my season"
Yeah we walk through the doors, so accusing their eyes
Like they have any right at all to criticize,
Hypocrites. You're all here for the very same reason
'Cause you can't jump the track, we're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, girl.
So cradle your head in your hands
And breathe... just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe
In May he turned 21 on the base at Fort Bliss
"Just a Day", he said down to the flask in his fist,
"Ain't been sober, since maybe October of last year."
Here in town you can tell he's been down for a while,
But, my God, it's so beautiful when the boy smiles,
Wanna hold him. Maybe I'll just sing about it.
Strange it was apparently relased at an odd time and didn't make this years nominations, and it'll be so overplayed by next year it won't make it then either. Curious.
As someone once said,"They should have named the award after the phonograph instead of the gramophone..."
Question--Since when did 'throttle' start meaning 'cower and cry like a scared sissy' ?
I make the electricity which makes everything else in the modern world possible! Quiver in fear, mortals!
As for the grammy's, I wouldn't kick a dead hog in the ass for the whole bunch.
In the context that this punk used it, it means to strangle.
Retract that. I needed a (/sarc) tag on that one.
I don't pay any attention to the Grammy's.
Seeing as how 'No Direction Home' informed the world that Dylan isn't the Leftist most thought he was, I doubt he'll win anything.
Thats true...I think the Grammy's are a joke as well.But I also like when Bob gets some attention from the industry, not that he needs it.
By the way, I'm a doctor who helps people in pain.
"Green Day, whose frontman says he "would throttle US President GEORGE W BUSH if the two were left alone together - and he'd enjoy doing it.", scores only 1 nomination for Record of the Year.";
I would think that would earn a secret service visit.
Dylan has been off the reservation for years, and Springsteen (the most over-rated hack in music) never left it.
Dylan's got his reward coming.
Phonograph? What's that?
I was just thinking the other day - how would you explain what film is to today's kids?
Now a 45 is a handgun, not a record.
I can't recall the last time I physically rolled down the window of a car.
I feel old. I am going back to bed.
I won't see the Grammies, I have something else to do. I don't know what, but I'll definitely find something...anything!
the dixie chicks managed to get a nomination for a song that was never released as a single..isnt on ANY album....you could download it on itunes, bit it did miserably there...peaked at #67 on the billboard charts... and received little airplay and even less interest from the country community in general. However it will be most likely be on an upcoming album ... some labels pay out big for promotion and Sony has spent more money on paying for nominations and airplay etc etc for the chicks than they have for any other artist in the labels hystory. The grammys are a sham.
The dixie chicks released the song for "charity" and will walk away with more in the grammy gift baskets than any of the victims that they swore the song was to raise money for will EVER recieve. They are opportunistic parastic leaches who will do anything for shameless self promotion including exploiting victims of America worst natural disaster. they are pond scum, and thats being generous...
W would wipe the floor with that(radio edit. I would pay good money to see it! Is the guy out of his mind, he wouldnt last one round!

I'm not sure we've ever had President in as good of shape as W. Maybe Abe Lincoln.
Teddy Roosevelt was a very outdoorsy and active person. He carried around extra weight, but that was the fashion then. He still strikes me as someone you wouldn't want to tangle with.

The Soundtrack from "Brokeback Mountain" didn't make?
I don't want my music to be peppered with obscenities - nor, my films for that matter (Hitchcock must surely be spinning in his grave).
So, I'll start caring about the Grammy Awards again, when the culture vultures stop degrading themselves and us, and start caring about our culture, our children, our future.
See my post #27
You laugh, but if the movie bombs because of the "homophobic" moviegoing public, you might see it get nominated. Definitely count on CMT (Viacom) pushing any music videos made from the movie. In a year, they'll be showing the movie every couple of weeks on CMT.
Good thing I de-programmed CMT from my DISH.
Just an update - the Chicks were shut out.
Best Country Performance by a Group With Vocal or a Duo:
"Restless" by Alison Krauss and Union Station
Best Country Song:
"Bless the Broken Road" by Rascall Flatts
But get this: Best Female Country Vocal Performance nominees were Faith, Gretchen, Lee Ann Womack, Trisha, and Emmylou Harris. Pick the one you haven't heard on country radio in the past year and you picked the Grammy winner. BOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! Grammies suck.
