I wrote this whole big long post when I was in a slightly miserable messed up mood. And it showed. I hated the vibe of it. Now I'm not a big fan of erasing what's happened or been written about, but I really don't feel like having that reminder of a crap mood hanging around. So I'm taking it down. Except for the part about Dave Grohl, because he's awesome. So here you go.
Good ol Foo Fighters... after they slammed their way through a song, they threw on suit jackets over their Slayer T shirts, called it formal wear, and accepted their award. Dave Grohl crowed about how they made this album in his garage! which amused me because I'm sure his garage is, um, not exactly like the one your mom let you and your 14 year old buddies make your noise in. I love him for getting excited about music made by people, not machines, even though I suspect computers still snuck into the process at some point, because that's how it's down now, sorry... but most of all, I love and respect Dave Grohl for his speech about picking up an instrument and learning how to play it!!! And for music made with your heart and your mind.
Oh and here's the other brilliant Dave thing which I forgot to mention when I first wrote this post:
At the end of the Foo Fighters acceptance speech, the get-off-the-stage music started. It was something called "dub-step" which apparently them kids today really dig, except for my kids, who have actual good taste in music. Yep, I sound like I'm 87 and hate all that newfangled stuff that ain't even music at all dernit!!!
But seriously. UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ
And what did Good ol Grohl do?
Just as the camera panned away, with the untz untz untz happening, he ran back to the microphone just before the commercial break and yelled, "LONG LIVE ROCK AND ROLLLLL!"
Annyong and I threw our hands up in the air and started into a rousing chorus of DAAAAAAAAVE GRO-OHHHHHHHHLLLLL!
Anyways. I have to get Bucky and Annyong working on getting me that Awards Season Tree they keep threatening to make for me, with the little Grammy and Juno and Oscar ornaments hanging from its golden branches...
