The Grammys!

The Grammys - let's talk about them. I didn't watch them and, if ratings are any indicator, neither did you. But apparently Amy Winehouse won 5 awards (out of 6 nominations) including Best Record, losing out only to Herbie Hancock for best Album.

Hey Herbie Hancock is still alive? Cool. I always assumed he spontaneously combusted after crossing the streams of jazz and techno with 1983's "Rockit". But yeah, good for him.

Good thing for Amy Winehouse too. Maybe the wave of overwhelming and weirdly backhanded validation only an armful of trophies from an obsolete cultural institute can provide will fill the void in her life she's been filling with gin.

Since when did the Grammys become a charity institution for neglected/self-abusive musicians? Maybe those are the only kinds there are. I realize that Rehab was amazing (the drums alone make the track) but FIVE awards? Spread it around, for goodness' sake.
