Thats how you sell records…yeah 78’s!

Open with Francis Sinatra fine. Frank rules. Alycia Keyes is a goddess, cant go wrong there. But then what the fuck happened to the Grammy’s. Just like Shaq they got really old really fast. Andy Williams? Tina Turner, Burt Bacharach, George Martin? Lets be honest and forthcoming, awards shows exist to sell products. The Academy Awards want you to run out and see No Country for Old Men, or There Will Be Blood. The Grammys want people to go out buy Amy Wino’s cd, or Kanyes disc.
 
Problem is, the kids are stealing all the music and not buying it. Who aint stealing it? Ummm people in their 70’s and 80’s that are into Andy Williams, I guess. So the Music Industry is promoting music to people in their 40’s  THE TIME, and then they drag out Forest Gump and he promotes The Band and The Beatles to the folks that are in their 50’s to 60’s.  Out comes Andy Williams, and Cher, and Tina Turner, and then I turned it off.
 
What the fuck was that? AARP Grammys? Where was the APPLE commercial with Justin Long and Walter Cronkite?  This is a slap in the face to everybody that buys all their music, LIKE ME!
 
Im not Roger Clements or Barry Bonds, the RIAA will not tell me to my face that Im a thief. No, not to my face, but they will assume it from the luxury of their Wilshire Blvd digs.  I pay for my music, I buy iTunes cards. I deserve Better.
 
Writers strike or not, the presenters were still reading from a teleprompter, so somebody wrote the text, Jason Bateman bombed. Who ever expected him to still be around anyway.  Me, Im gonna listen to my paid for copy of the White Stripes Icky Thump.
