The Day the Music Died

Generally around 1984, though a few edgy purists might argue content dictates an earlier date. Still others might suggest the industry's decades long cancer (greed), insured its demise all along.

1984. The year the digitally encoded compact disc, went prime time in America (though released a bit earlier). Today I stand silently with head bowed. For on Sunday, popular music was finally laid to rest, in pop music's former stomping ground, Los Angeles, California. During a circular, orgiastic pud pulling frenzy [billed as the Grammy's (at Staples Arena)].

On that day, the Dixie Chicks won five (count 'em). Five Grammy's. For service above and beyond, to the liberal community. For disrespect to America and its citizens. For ill mannered ranting about the President of the United States (while standing atop foreign soil).

At long last .... courtesy of the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. Popular recorded music has been given its final sendoff.

So Long/R.I.P.

Metal band Slayer wins Grammy for anti-war song

LOS ANGELES (Feb 12, 2007): Speed metal band Slayer won the first Grammy of its 25-year career for ... "Eyes of the Insane." ...

The Iraq war and opposition to U.S. President George W. Bush has inspired a number of Grammy-nominat(ions) ... Neil Young's "Living with War" ... UB40's "Who You Fighting For." ...

(Former U.S. President) Jimmy Carter win(s) a Grammy Award in the spoken-word category... (the other nominees were Al Franken, Bill Maher, and Bob Newhart).

And surprise! The NYT's get all of it wrong, all of the time. (What's new)

Listen to those freakin' harpies the Dixie Chicks? Like everyone else, I spin the the radio dial if I hear them. Traditionally here in America, pop music has been an avenue of social and political defiance. Nothing new there. The difference is, some like me see the world a little differently in middle age. And being directly insulted does not give me a warm fuzzy feeling.

Sides, this h'yar house cat got more talent in her two front paws, than them screechy alley cats with Bush Derangement Syndrome heat (and obviously a lot more heart and soul).

what a crybaby you are, just because there are no bands that suck bush's dick like you do... except maybe neo-nazi bands and Toby Keith.

T'would be quite a trick there, to listen to and enjoy Oi!/hatecore music. Being that I'm one of those neocons who just happen to be Jooish (Oh no Elmo, say it sin't so!).

But many thanks for stopping buy. And of course ..... a Most Happy Valentines Day to You To.

XOXO, Elmo.

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.
