The Grammys

I don't know how I get sucked into these things.

The brightest moment came from the peanut gallery. Louise and I were suffering through another droning, hook-less, U2 "tune." The camera, for lack of anything of real interest, settled on the Edge, soulfully wringing that same quarter note out of his guitar over and over and over again. Louise said, "Look at that idiot. I bet he does pilates."

At least I know who Kanye West is now.

    "Look at that idiot. I bet he does pilates."
    There is too much right with that statement. U2 is the personification of what Neo-Marxists would call the ossification of the counter culture. They are politically correct, marketable rock and roll.

    It used to be that when mediocre/poor musicians played vapid crap, people would say they suck. Now they call them U2.
