It will warm there in Sonoma of course. V, keep in touch. How long will your trip be? Staying in the city and then traveling around?

Steampunk Jazz said...

Its a Lil after 2...
No one in the place except me and youooo
:-D

ninotchka said...

Who was Tyler signaling with the ear pull? He mouthed "hi" to someone but I couldn't catch it. Some piece, no doubt.

Aww.. Smokey. A classic.

They're bringing out some big guns in this show. I'm going to have to stop saying so and so's a giant among gnats every 15 minutes.

ninotchka said...

Steam, give me one for my baby and one more for the road. ;)

Steampunk Jazz said...

Have you heard the Lambert monstrosity yet?

V said...

I'll probably be around for a week or two in July and another week in August. One of my best friends will be in town healdsburg for the summer and I'll try to visit as much as possible.

Karen Dögg Úlfarsdóttir said...

Where are we in the show? Has Macklemore made you cry yet and has Madonna threatened to steal your kids and/or sleep with them if they're over 18?

Steampunk Jazz said...

You have to stick for that ninotchka, everyone else was too numb to comment...or to stunned to...

ninotchka said...

We have not been blessed with Miranda's song stylings yet, Steam.

Sherry said...

Pharrell was so poised. Give that man an award for that.
Violet still hanging in.
So what is the "album of the year" vs. "record of the year" and then that whole "song of the "year?
Used to be 45's were a "record" but it's all CD's now. #soconfused.

V said...

Is it bad? I'm just SO over Macklemore. I can't with him anymore.

ninotchka said...

Macklemore has not yet made us cry. Closet Queen Latifah has not yet appeared.

Madge hasn't scared the children yet either.

V said...

Sherry, I think Song is for the writer, Record for the producers, and Album for the artist? Something to that effect anyway.

Karen Dögg Úlfarsdóttir said...

@Sherry Song of the year is a songwriter award, record of the year is a producer/engineer/mixer award and album of the year is for everyone.

@V I liked it a lot, it was emotional but I'm with you, I think they're overrated and it was a travesty he won over Kendrick in the Rap categories.

V said...

K, Queen La looks really good.

ninotchka said...

Okay, there's the Queen. Looking good.

Here comes Macklemore. Where's my hanky?

Karen Dögg Úlfarsdóttir said...

@Sherry And of course all of those awards are always for the performer too.

Seven of Eleven said...

Wait, what did I miss cleaning up the dishes... Karen Dögg is hosting a party?

ninotchka said...

Have to say, that fat girl sings the shit out of this song.

Karen Dögg Úlfarsdóttir said...

All of this goes on my tab.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Mary the singer is beautiful and looking gorgeous for a big girl. Melissa McCarthy should ask her advice on dresses...

V said...

Since I live in Seattle, I've actually heard his album for the last 2 years or so? Super played out at this point! And so not deserved over Kendrick.

Sherry said...

Yay Trombone Shorty! Like Thrift Store but not this song. Seems too calculated but like the theme.

keeshlo said...

Yes! Macklemore!

Steampunk Jazz said...

BTW, Madonna looks ridiculous

keeshlo said...

OMG its an albino hag

Steampunk Jazz said...

@V, this second half was based around this song and ceremony, so they really pushed this song to its voters

Sherry said...

Agreed V. I'm kinda over Macklemore as well. And why did they have Madonna here..Okay battery dead. Later guys!

V said...

The older she gets the more Madonna is morphing into old Bette Davis.

And my heart must be stone...no tears, but then it doesn't help being on a TAPE DELAY

ninotchka said...

Aww.. that was so sweet.

To crib a couple of phrases from a favorite site of mine...

I'm crying as I type and Madge should die in a grease fire.

Steampunk Jazz said...

But sherry when's the wedding? Lol

Steampunk Jazz said...

Teheeeeheeeheee ninotchka

V said...

@Steam, yah, good for them I guess.

And Bing's heroic women commercial makes me tear up...go figure.

V said...

Seven! Imagine dragons was muy excelente!! Would see them again, definitely.

ninotchka said...

Yeah, the Bing commercial's a killer.

Seacrest? Oy.

You know, he's a complete tool but he is competent at this announcing hosting thing. Many people aren't.

Yay Kent Knappenberger! Teach more music.

Steampunk Jazz said...

V,O was rather dry myself. Rushed, staged and forced, I couldn't take the vows seriously.
Wonder if its legal?

V said...

What an awesome award and more awesome music teacher!

ninotchka said...

Uh-oh, it's the Dead Pool

ninotchka said...

The Dead Pool brought to you by Nuevo Liberace, apparently. That's a hell of a sparkly piano he's got going on there.

V said...

Steam, it just felt very pandering and underwhelming. Oh well, the intentions were good.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Oops, froze up on me

Karen Dögg Úlfarsdóttir said...

Why is it that the only rap categories that are ever televised are the ones that Jay Z wins? Do they just really want him to show up or what?

ninotchka said...

Oh... Richie Havens, that's a big loss.

And Jonathan Winters - genius. Big loss.

Still don't care about Corey Montieth.

Lou Reed - another big loss.

Oh god - here comes that Lambert chick. Looks like she was attacked by a tanning booth and she's going to destroy an Everly Brothers tune.

V said...

I have to say, the Grammy In Meroriams always feel much more inclusive than the acting ones.

Steampunk Jazz said...

That one year while they included everyone went on forever and the stars all complained...:-\

ninotchka said...

Steam, as you advised it would be - that was a painful interlude.

I don't know that it's really necessary to enshrine the Everly Brothers with a musical tribute but whatever, they didn't ask my opinion.

God - there's that Shakira commercial again. That girl has ABS OF DEATH.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Frightening hunh...
No energy, couldn't get in the right key til the other guy had to take lead...
Pathetic

ninotchka said...

In her defense, the Lambert chick looks like she's lost 40 pounds. She's probably starving to death, on Adderal and her husband is a low down drunken dog.

Still, she should be able to sing a simple song.

Steampunk Jazz said...

The deal is
The tight harmonies inspired the Beatles
Who inspired this generation
And so on....
So ultimately, all music is descended from the Everley bros,.. :-D

V said...

Ninotchka, The Everly Brothers are one of those early influencers, they were also one of the original Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees. I think today they have been somewhat forgotten, but they are rock and roll "gods"

ninotchka said...

Alicia, what the fuck is with the cleavage contouring? Scary looking.

So it's the space helmet guys again? Umm.. well there ya go, Karen.

At least Swifty was shut out all night.

ninotchka said...

Is that Paul Williams??? Holy shit - he's got to be 112 years old by now.

ninotchka said...

Thanks, V, I know who they are and their place in rock history. I'm fairly old. I probably would have gone with Richie Havens. Just my taste, I guess.

Karen Dögg Úlfarsdóttir said...

It only took them 21 years to get a non-genre Grammy. And first EDM artists to get AOTY. Proud of my boys!

Steampunk Jazz said...

Williams! That's the name , all I could remember is Paul!
Thank you thank you

V said...

I just watched a doc about Paul Williams...glad to see him sharing in the Daft Punk riches. Random Access Memories was sublime.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Did anyone else notice the areoles showing in Beyonce's dresses ?

ninotchka said...

You're welcome Steam, Paul Williams has been around for-fucking-ever. I was shocked to see him up there.

V said...

I love Lindsey Buckingham riffs.

Karen Dögg Úlfarsdóttir said...

I love Lindsey Buckingham. He's on my list.

V said...

I didn't steam, but why do I find that all sorts of crazy wonderful.

V said...

ninotchka said...

I did not notice Beyonce Knowles' areoles showing through but it would not surprise me. That dress looked like a throwback to her horrendous House of Dereon days.

Steampunk Jazz said...

I only remember Paul from Smokey 2 or3?

kelli_girl said...

Who woulda thought Lindsey Buckingham could kick ass like that with NIN? Loved it! And always love me some QOTSA ... I'm simultaneously attracted & repulsed by Josh Homme - the attraction def wins.

V said...

Bey does deserve a read for her fashion choice.

ninotchka said...

My god, I haven't seen Lindsey Buckingham in a hundred years.

Once upon a time Lindsey, Christine, Stevie and the one I can't think of at the moment had to hold the concert together for about an hour, while Mick Fleetwood puked his guts out off the side of the stage. Good times.

Steampunk Jazz said...

I'm sure that YouTube has her opening number , go for it. But it better be a good recording that damned fog went everywhere,... :-D

V said...

K, I'm out till next week! Ciao!

ninotchka said...

She also deserves a read for her opening performance which was godawful.

There's more to being a singer than looking good.

ninotchka said...

Bye V, it's been fun snarking the Grammys with you.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Well guys, I hoped you enjoyed it as much as we did earlier:-\ :-D
I got to go for reals, its 3 am and even leverage is over.
I stag up any later, it will be church pastors and energetic choirs...
Night guys

Steampunk Jazz said...

Night V, safe trip :-)

Karen Dögg Úlfarsdóttir said...

Well I'm off, this has been fun!
Goodnight all.

ninotchka said...

Night Steam! I can't believe you stayed up til 3 - holy crap.

Go get some sleep.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Night ninotchka, bright butterfly dreams...;-)

ninotchka said...

Night Karen!

I'm another one hitting the road. It's been fun.

See ya round the CDAN this week, guys.

Steampunk Jazz said...

Night karen Dogg, stay awake girl , stay safe...:-D
