There’s an awards show on television tonight that I’m not gonna watch (and not just because I’m on an airplane headed east). I’m not even recording it.
The Grammy Awards. Yep — Not. Gonna. Do. It.
I’m sure there will be much spectacle. Lady GaGa and Adam Lambert are performing, so that’s kinda a given. But when you’ve only heard of about half of the musical groups — and have no clue what songs they currently sing or what awards they have been nominated to receive — well, you feel like one of those folks who hang out by the buffet table at a party.
“So, listen to music on your iPod, Carla.”
It’s a legitimate idea. But I hate headphones and ear buds — just can’t stand having anything jammed in or around my ears — so music as part of my commute has pretty much disappeared. And TV is my background noise of choice when I’m working on my laptop.
So this time, The Egg is depending on you — give me the skinny on what goes down at the Grammy’s pre-, during and post-show — complete with your more informed translation.
I may not like headphones, but I’d still like to hear an ear full.
