Grammy Time.

Ray Charles News on Yahoo! Music

If you want to see the worst & most shallow in award ceremonies. This year's Grammy Awards is it. Where shall I start?

how about Ray Charles getting eight awards. Yeah, you're really saying something to the music community by doing that. "Green Day is good, but did Billie Joe keel over? Is Kaye West pushing daisies? No. Didn't think so. Case Closed. I SAID CASE CLOSED!"

New Artist is a sham as well. I can put out an album & do bubkiss for three years & I still can win Best New Artist.

What's sad is Britany won best dance album. She won over Scissor Sisters, an up & coming Deep Trance group. She won over Kylie Minogue who is actually doing Pop music by experimenting with various electronic styles. Worst of all, Spears won over The Chem. Bros. & Basement Jaxx, Two of the best Anthem House artists ever.

It may mean nothing to the electronic community, but if you're starting out & you're buying from the music store, you're not going to find many copies of Teisto or Derude or even Roni Size. You're gonna find the Dance/Electronic section filled with Spears album. Sure Basement Jaxx got best Album, but you're only going to find the album in music stores if you were in a big metropolitan area.

I pretty much think the judges just flip coins from some of these awards.

At least they didn't ask for a recount like last time.

Don't get me started on the new artist category either. Someone asked how it was self-important so I observed that they aren't actually handing out awards to new artists but artists who have simply scored enough hits so that the Grammy committee notices them.

On the other hand it's an awards ceremony and the Grammies, so why the fuck am I talking about this? Oh yes. Insomnia.
