Of course the big news this morning are the GRAMMY nominees, which were announced last night during a prime time special. I was only home for a few hours and never watched it.

    the only new music i listen to are mash ups/bastard pop/blends type stuff and that’s it…

    i’m always baffled but happy that some can take two or more bands or people i don’t like put them onto something that i just keep reaching to play.

    it’s weird you can take mainstream or grammy type stuff and come up with something i like soooo much more than the orginal product.

    but i always lean to combos (mash ups ) i guess most will find too weird/noisy/too funny or doesn’t make chrous sticking out more than a blind person needs braille. ha ha…

    i love decade hopping and genre hopping and unpredictable combos…

    who knew you could combine neil diamond and the notorious b.i.g. hmm i didn’t….

  2. NEIL DIAMOND and NOTORIOUS B.I.G.???

    I would never have thought that was viable either, glim. But sometimes those odd off the wall combos really do work.
