  • Morgan Freeman introducing Kenny Chesney is perhaps one of the most incongruous things I have ever seen. Also, Morgan Freeman steels his fashion tips from Kanye West.
  • Everybody but Craig Ferguson is horribly unfunny when presenting awards, especially when they are supposed to be funny
  • Three people in the audience knew what Led Zeppelin was.
  • If they play Watchmen at regular speed it will last for about an hour and will be half as “visionary”.
  • The RAP PACK! Get it! If you don’t get it, it’ll be in black and white to give you the full effect. But it’ll just be desaturated instead of optimized to, you know, look good.
  • Although I enjoy MIA’s Paper Planes, “no one on the corner has swagger like us” gets pretty inane when repeated over and over and over again.
  • MIA is an upsidedown lady bug or something.
  • The Grammy people feel the need to offset the awesome created by the likes of Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney by teaming them up with The Jonas Brothers and Dave Grohl.
  • Not only is Dave Grohl on the same stage as McCartney, he is taking Ringo’s place (who is still alive, by the way).
  • The Grammy people also seem to know that I am only watching for Radiohead.
  • Shiny suits of all colors are, apparently, cool.
  • I automagically tune out all country music.
  • Thom Yorke can’t not dance funny when he sings. He’s almost as bad as John Mayer’s sing-y face. Despite, or perhaps because of, this, Radiohead’s performance was freaking awesome.
  • The Grammy people know I will keep watching for Neil Diamond.
  • SAM JACKSON!
  • I feel like I could enjoy T.I. if he didn’t have that stupid hat on.
  • Obama has more Grammys than Kanye. Or something like that.
  • The words “Yes we can” said by a rich white guy is… kinda funny.
  • Smokey Robinson is still alive.
  • I generally like the songs in the commercials better than those performed in the actual show.
  • Josh Grobin: The Most Boring Man in Music.
  • Neil Diamond is still alive. And still kind of awesome.
  • Why isn’t T.I. performing with The Diamondator? He performed with everybody else.
  • Paul McCartney upstaged Diamond from his seat.
  • Bo Diddly is a great song no matter who plays it. Also, a great dude.
  • Gary Senise is a strange strange man to be on the Grammys.
  • Especially strange to be introducing Lil Wayne.
  • Those girls during the New Orleans thing are gonna have a lot of bad luck.
  • will.i.am and T-Pain. I love people with punctuation in their names. Even more-so when they have awesome hats.
  • Lil Wayne seems to be an amalgamation of a bunch of young and old people. Interesting.
  • This Bob Dylan/will.i.am commercial really ticks me off.
  • More Zooey D., please. Pretty please. Pretty pretty please.
  • Radiohead can’t catch a break. But at least Robert Plant won the big thing.
  • New Theory: if Radiohead wants a Grammy, they need to get old. Quick.
  • You can’t play out Robert Plant. It’s kind of stupid.
  • Woo. More Stevie Wonder. Hopefully he can get away without geting bombarded by Jonases again.
  • Playing commercials over Stevie Wonder seems kind of screwed up. Like playing out Robert Plant.

So, that’s all. Hope you enjoyed. I’ll update this more often now that I’m settled into a routine at school.

Ever since I watched Urban Legend on TNT one summer day, I have been afraid of seeing things while driving. It started just being afraid of driving at night in the rain while listening to Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler after being stammered at by a guy with Chucky’s (the murderous doll) voice. Turns out if all of those things happen to you there will be a guy in your back seat with an axe waiting to chop off your head at the perfect intersection between lightning flashes and the climax of the song.

So I took that song off my iPod. Easy solution, right? Well, then my friend John had to tell me what is perhaps the scariest story I have ever heard. One night he was driving alone down a windy Connecticut back-road at night. He saw something on the side of the road. It looked like a person hunched over. Upon closer inspection it looked more like a wolf-man hunched over on the side of the road. It was blacker than the night and looked very hairy. Then he got closer and it was just a trash bag. Unfortunately, both he and I have over-active imaginations and we forget about the last part and focus on how scary it would be to see a wolf-man on the side of the road in the middle of the night. So now I only drive with the lights off.

Another transportation based scare is the time I watched the Twilight Zone movie. Johnathan Lithgow (who was in one of my favorite shows of the time, Third Rock From The Sun) took the role of “Paranoid Plane Person Who Sees A Gremlin Tearing The Plane Apart” from William Shatner. This shot still scares me:

And then I watched the original, which scared me even more:
Good luck sleeping tonight!
