  1. Apparently the Nobel Peace Prize is actually more about the promotion of peace than creating peace: here’s my colleague Joseph Cox on the matter: http://www.theinductive.com/blog/why-obama-deserved-his-nobel-prize.htmlReport

    In the same spirit, I have decided to file action an against the Grammys.

    Despite their declared mission to “to recognize outstanding achievement,” they constantly give awards to people that produce dreck.  Kenny G, Debbie Boone, and Captain and Tennille have all been honored as top talents in the music industry.  In 1977 they declared Starlight Vocal Band (Afternoon Delight) the recording industry’s Best New Artist, over Elvis Costello.

    This simply cannot be allowed to stand.Report

    • The Grammys are the musical equivalent of the airhead popular kids from the proverbial trope-laden high school film who do nothing all day but copy and praise and slobber all over each other and pretend the smart and interesting kids don’t exist. I mean, did you see this!?!? (That video’s probably blocked by now.)

      And who the hell is actually buying Maroon 5 and Katy Perry albums? Does anyone actually listen to this music, or is this just what producers think we should be listening to? (Anyone here read Hitmen, btw, about how producers basically killed rock as a mainstream force in music after Pink Floyd refused to play ball?)

      If these guys can’t win for Best Song, the Grammys just aren’t worth taking seriously.Report

    Wikileaks still nominated? Find it more likely that Wikileaks is the cause of this than Obama.
