When Wimpy Indie Bands Win Grammys (Grammies?)


I wish all of Bon Iver's songs were as full-bodied and muscular (even if it's just little egg biceps) as this SNL performance of "Holocene." It's cool when someone not many people know of win big awards in front of 40 million people, but I wish Bon Iver and his soft-rock indie ilk didn't have to sound so wimpy all the time.

Well said.

[I guess this is more of the "soft is the new loud" musical realm in which we find ourselves.]

Thanks, man! When will somebody bring back The Rock?!

Or how about Skrillex winning best new "band". Haha, I didn't even watch nor do I care who wins these "awards". It's cool when a small band wins a big award, but I'm with you, someone please bring back the rock. It's out there, but somebody doesn't want the masses to know about it.

I guess it's thorougly possible that the majority of people now are just big weiners (the hot dog kind) and don't like to rock anymore. That would explain the state of the world.

The Grammys is the Weinersnitchzel of the food world. Blah. Ya, the majority of people surely are standard franks with just plain old ketchup and mustard on a crusty white bun. We need more spicy mustard, saurkrout, onions, cheese, chili, peppers, pickles, and bratwurst in this world. It wouldn't hurt to have it thrown together on a slab of fresh made gourmet bun either. Tired of this mediocrity and wimpy weenie music playing on the radio and being worshipped at the Grammys.

Me, too. I give the absence of both Gaga (GaGa?) and Black-Eyed Peas a bonus point, but that still leaves them with a 1...out of 100.

Also, I really want a hotdog now. Lots of onions, chili, and cheese.

Haha, tell me about it. I am salivating right now for a big old dog. God damnit, I always do that to myself. Might have to do something about that, I've got some gourmet weiners in the freezer at home, might have to give the wife a call and take em out in time for dinner tonight. She won't likely be craving weiner though.

Haha! Pregnancy can do that.
