  1. only mash ups can save the grammys. nothing else can.

    nothing…

  2. I wholeheartedly agree that the GRAMMYS have a tendency to play it safe. Some years they passionately embrace the middle of the road.

    That’s lovely for some people. But I tend to be drawn to the off beat, the challenging, the daring, the innovative, the iconoclastic…

    However…

    On an annual basis, there are extraordinarily talented people that make the cut. This time is no exception. That will always happen, glimster. Always…

    And that’s something to be genuinely grateful for.
