Fun reliving the #Grammys
via west coasters’ tape-delayed tweets. Ah, we were so young & naive back then, 3 hours ago. #IMR
If I was Cee-Lo Green, I think I’d have trouble remembering to sing “Forget” every time.
In Electric Dreams I call this “the dialectic of technological determinism.” We project onto technology our utopian visions of the future.
BREAKING: Facebook events are being organized for protests in Saudi Arabia on February 18th!! http://j.mp/ihyGPy
Withdrawing projections means realizing the power was within you all along. Your anima pop godess. Your puer rock star. Your Buddha-nature.
But maturity & wisdom comes when we withdraw projections. See people & things for who & what they are in themselves.
Projection is necessary & valuable – it’s what Robert Johnson calls “carrying your gold” when you’re not ready yet to carry it yourself.
In Jungian terms, technological determinism is projection: giving power to machines that really belongs to ourselves….
Steve Albini really is the fourth Lady Antebellum.
Next year’s Gaga vs. Kanye vs. Swift battle royale will tear this country apart.
Lady Antebellum still regret not giving D. Boon a ride that time.
I remember seeing Lady Antebellum at an all-ages show at City Gardens in Trenton in 1986. #punk
Wish this Mountain Dew ad would end and the #Grammys
would start again. Oh, wait, I’m watching Arcade Fire’s performance.
I love organized storage.
I was one of the few to support Lady Antebellum when they left Alternative Tentacles.
I heard what Miley smoked was salvia, which is perfectly legal in most states but more potent than LSD.
Wife: “So Justin Bieber isn’t making me feel old enough, now I have to remember Evergreen?”
A one time only performance by Barbara Streisand at the #Grammys
! Singing the one song I was hoping she wouldn’t sing!
Grammys: The last time there were this many black ppl and rednecks in the same place was the courtroom scene in “A Time to Kill.”
I’m gonna buy some of that motherfucking iced tea Eminem was advertising!
I thought the Grammy’s were all around great. The Dylan-Mumford- Avett section was fantastic. Streisand too. I am ready for the dr. Dre rec
Woah! Inverse world! Worst song of the year won best song of the year. Rain is falling up. Birds are dead. Jesus Returns! #grammys
Lady Antebellum have to have some Altman’s Nashville “Bill, Mary and Tom” shit going on.
Hmmm love the song, but hates that their name refers to pre civil war era south: http://bit.ly/hP3cUp
Not surprised that I enjoyed the Muppets on the #Grammys
. But I’m a little disturbed that I found them kind of hot.
Nicole Kidman is so stoked not to be a scientologist. #grammys
You guys I’m not positive but I think Katy Perry might want us to look at her cans
If you enjoyed Mumford & Sons on the #Grammys
, check out the great EP they did with Laura Marling & the Dharohar Project. #GlobalFolkMusic
BARKLY from Sesame street is in the dundgeon family! #grammys
FACT: “Fuck You” significantly less charming bowdlerized.
Let’s create an elaborate handshake to perform every time we see each other. I’d like it to end with fake gunshots.
My wife eats up red carpet shows. I don’t get them at all. It’s like being trapped at a bad cocktail party without drinks.
Bob Dylan sounded great with all that acoustic backing. Let’s just hope he never goes electric. #Grammys
Real talk would ANY girl be comfortable spending 10 mins alone in a room with Dylan after that? #grammys
Bob Dylan sounds like what I look like in the mornings.
Usher. One Part bobby brown, one part starfleet new recruit. #grammys
Why is Will Smith so emotionally effected by Lady Gaga’s win? Take it from me, I just dont understand #grammys
The Lady Gaga song sounds just like Madonna but Adrian Tomine drew just like Dan Clowes before he found his own style. #anybody

olivia: is dylan singing that way on purpose? does he know he’s on tv now?
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind. I refer to a lozenge.

Aw, not an egg, Gaga. Salvador Dali did that already. Hell, the Penguin did that already.

Look how creepy Usher looks staring intently at a 13 year old boy. #grammys
Seeing how I actually know+like a lot of the acts/nominees at Grammys- either means a)I’m “with it” or b)Grammys are actually out-of-touch.

Great time at the Grammy! Now before we go home to tuck in the babies we get wasted in Arcade Fire’s tour bus. ‘Night, night!
Nice blonde lady backstage at #Grammys
sweetly said, “Muse really rocked” as if gushing about a thoughtful thank you note.
The Grammys are awesome if you want to feel old.
: Huge night for Merge Records. It’s Durham’s year, baby! Congrats Laura and Mac.
OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. Thank you EVERYONE.
Congratulations to Canadian Artist’s Arcade Fire for album of the year. Incredible.
I’ve successfully avoided Bieber for so long…
I need a pic of the dude who hugged Lady Gaga at the Grammys. Everyone is Tweeting I hugged Gaga. #mustabeenDenzel
WHO IS ANYONE IN MUSIC? I literally do not know any of these white people! #grammys
i will spare you the details but i am on minute ten of my daughters vicious anti beiber rant.
If Lady Gaga was “born this way” did doctor tell her parents, “Congratulations! It’s a 9 pound publicity whore!” #Grammys
Arcade Fire have been building for years to be a huge band. Actually they already sell out arenas. Now they just had their pop moment. Nice.
top 2 Grammy performances: Janelle killed it, Cee Lo would have been close 2nd but Fishsticks ruined it, so 2nd is Jolene
fire!!!!!!!!!! There is hope!!! I feel like we all won when something like this happens! FUCKING AWESOME!
Twilight Zone episode idea: Lady Antebellum goes back in time to before the Civil War, realizes name is offensive, returns to apologize.
A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.
Wow, what a save! Arcade Fire for the win and playing itself and the show off. Make me feel less dumb for hanging in.
Wife re Gaga: “So she’s got her points on her shoulders instead of her tits? It still sounds like Madonna.”
wow! yay! i’m so glad arcade fire won. they look so fucking happy.
Congratulations Arcade Fire. You won indie. You won mainstream. Tonight is ur nite.

Barbra has clearly never heard of Arcade Fire. I see a very special #Glee

winners tonight: Mumford & Sons. Crushed it live & got to back up Dylan on a night when he was in a good mood. #grammys #imr

I think if The Arcade Fire weren’t The Arcade Fire, a lot of people who hate The Arcade Fire would love The Arcade Fire.
Arcade Fire! I’m having… a… seizure..!
Had never even heard of Lady Antebellum until tonight. Guessing this means they’re the NCIS of rock bands.
Two themes of tonight’s #grammys
: tall hair and fire. This will not end well.
“See you driving ’round town with the Grammy I deserve, and I’m like, F— You.” — Cee-Lo
Sorry was this the CMA awards? The country booty call song is cleaning this shit up.
That’s the way it is! Let’s figure out how to carry profession’s ideals forward into new kinds of jobs, give up feeling entitled.
watching the grammys with olivia. every time there is a beiber appearance she yells ugh! gonna be a long night.
Record of the Year means you were played more than any other song at Walgreens, Album of the Year is Sams Club cc @videodrew
Take a bow Marshall Mathers, aka EMENM you just won Rap Album of the Year award SOBER!! Great accomplishment @chakkamusic #grammys
LCD Soundsystem on Colbert Report tomorrow night. Is there a such thing as ‘too awesome?’
Now, HuffPo story’s a bit different. And I prefer platforms that let me own/control my postings. But this “serf” talk is nuts.
Sonny and Cher just showed up.
FB, Twitter, Flickr posts etc “unpaid content” produced by serfs? Did you think you’d get paid for your telephone conversations?
Is that a bedazzled Wonder Woman costume on Rhianna? #grammys
lo rhapsody, bring me esperanza spalding. excellent music for concentrating, so far.
I get why people don’t watch the Grammys, but y’know: Janelle Monae, the Avetts, Mick Jagger… that’s actual entertainment.
Nicki Minaj’s hair made me hungry for carnival snacks.
i’d just like one smile in the rap category.
Nicki Minaj–the Rocky Horror Picture Show show is at the Plaza this Friday at midnight…you won’t need to change! #Grammys
Nicky Minaj – out-SF-ing Janelle Monae! Outfit of the nite. She’s great on Monster by @kanyewest
too. #grammys #imr
My man Kris. Love him so much.
I have a very awkward abreaction to Barbara Streisand.
Now I’m waiting for Lea Michelle to burst out of Bahbrah’s dress like Alien. #grammys #imr
Jagger killed it–as I expected he would. He knows his musical roots. The tragic thing is that some black artists don’t. #GRAMMYs2011
Damn… I can’t find the words to explain how I feel about the best new artist award… Don’t wanna say the wrong thing
Mick Jagger can work a staaaage! But listening to the song, I’m not quite sure who exactly he needs…
Mick without the Stones is like foreplay without the sex.
how come there wasnt a Teena Marie tribute?
Mick Jagger is crazy fresh!!! #OGSWAG
It bothers me that a 67 year old man is totally rocking the skinny jeans.
U got say its amazing that 7o year mick jaguar can still chew his food let alone sing and dance
Mick is looking a little Hef
SO MUCH awkward Nicole Kidman dancing tonight.
these young twigs have nothing on jagger’s skinny legged finesse.
I’m stealing that jacket from you, Mick. Watch out. #grammys
Seriously thought Mick was Whitney Houston from the back.
Bummer – wouldve made a big improvement. RT @questlove
: We had this gig w/ mick in the bag but had to pass.
We had this gig w/ mick in the bag but had to pass.
Mick still hasn’t figured out how to be a cool old guy like Keith & Dylan & Neil Young. Needs less preening, more Zen. #grammys #imr
Did we overrate Mick? Maybe Keith wasn’t just the musical genius of the Stones, but also the real conceptualist, & Mick was his sock puppet.
: E. Spaulding! female jazz singing bass players rule!
Wow. Awesome upset! We are floored! couldn’t happen to a nicer person. #grammys2011
Legit whoo! Esperanza is so talented. #grammys
Damn I feel like I just won! Congrats Esperanza! #grammys2011
The weird thing about dre’s verse concerning haters and doubters is all I heard from people is “dre come back!!!” #grammys2011
Dre: rocked. Em: rocked, but why did you double-track? Skyler (sp?): awesome. Rhianna: sit down, man.
Is Jewel living in a car again?
Note to #Grammys
lighting crew: keep off @eminem
‘s mic. I don’t wanna see his spittle sparkle.
OK, can’t complain about Esperanza Spalding over Mumford. Album didn’t work for me, but definitely interesting. Plus a Portland shout-out!
The veins on Eminem’s face are seriously poppin! #Grammys
LOL! RT @ScubaDiva
: Eminem always seems so angry… If he wore CeeLo’s feather ensemble, Eminem could be the epitome of Angry Bird!
Where’s Suge Knight when you need him?
Singing live is tough. Lady Gaga and Katy Perry pulled it off. Rihanna? Not quite. CBS probably has multiple censors on the mute button!
2 reverse Col Tom Parker moments tonight w/ Dre & Ush for Bieb & Em. #grammys2011
They’re double-tracking Eminem while singers get no vocal sweeners. Weird double standard. #grammys #imr
Looks like Rihanna swiped part of Cee Lo’s costume! #Grammys
They might just be sore because Aquaman got his hand cut off, and the only emoticon he’s using is >_<
Can we stop calling Rob a villain? I’m pretty sure everyone likes the guy. #Survivor
I’m kinda appalled at how many of the people I follow on Twitter are actually live-tweeting the Grammys of all detestable things. For shame.
Whenever I hear “Need You Now,” I close my eyes and it’s like I’m in the checkout line at Duane Reade all over again. #grammys
I’d get out of a moving car playing Lady Antebellum.
“The song otherwise known as Forget You.” Prince would appreciate that! #Grammys
You guys, LADY ANTEBELLUM IS THE MOST BORING BAND OF OUR TIME.
First person to make an animated GIF of Nicole Kidman singing along to “Teenage Dream” gets a free BOTOX treatment.
John Mayer – shave and get some rest, bodyland
Norah doesn’t need these jokers. #grammys
i seem 2 have pissed off all 3 aquaman fans who also seem to have no idea what an emoticon is. amazing that they have that in common. 🙂
When did John Mayer turn into Father Guido Sarducci?
I didn’t even recognize Norah Jones with her haircut! And this is one great Dolly Parton tune. #grammys
Let’s have the all-boys school from Glee sing this instead?
Note to self: Cehck out Jeanelle Monae and Cee-Lo green. Thanks twitter for saving me the trouble of watching the Grammys.
Every time I hear the words “Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow” I tip my cap to the power of late ’90s Miramax.
Gotta admit, Need You Now is one of those perfectly structured songs that sounds less written than discovered.
I wanna see that trio jam some more. How about Coat of Many Colors? #grammys #imr
Where’s the costume party John Mayer’s going to in his Johnny Depp outfit? #grammys #imr
Roots of Teenage Dream: M83, Boys of Summer, Sonic Youth’s Teenage Riot, Who’s Baba O’Riley. @katyperry #grammys #imr

Must be AWKWARD backstage between Katy Perry and the Muppets. #Grammys
So far, all the people whose performances I’ve fast-forwarded through have won Grammys.
I need to play this Wii dance game. LIke right now.
Lady Gaga is so pissed off right now.
One minute in and I know this cee lo performance will go down in top 10 grammy performance history. #grammys2011
Can we make Cee-Lo an honorary muppet now?
I’m backstage. I’ve already declared Cee Lo’s my favorite performance. You’ll see why shortly.
More Georgia representin’ as Lady Antebellum coat the airwaves with two incredibly pretty songs “American Honey” & “Need You Now.” #Grammys
Up On the Ridge is a great neotrad album.
Need You Now is awfully close to Alan Parsons’s Eye In the Sky, isn’t it? via @kt30003k
Gotta give it up for Lady Antebellum. Best harmonies of the night. #grammys #imr
My thoughts exactly RT @tedfriedman
: Is Dylan wearing bowling shoes?
: Lady Gaga was @ the VMAs covered in meat. She was @ the Grammys dressed as an egg. Two more red carpets & She will …
Somewhere, an old-folks home is calling a news station about their patient who looks like Bob Dylan who wandered away this afternoon.
I’ll take Dylan’s croak over the first hour of reheated 90s any day of the year.
Neil Young finally looks entertained. Only took an hour and a half.
This looks like the funnest. Gimme a guitar. Or a washboard. #grammys
I like the Rocky’s trainer rasp of Dylan’s voice tonight as opposed to the 80’s bullwinkle flavor I was expecting. #grammys2011
He literally can’t work on Maggie’s Farm anymore because of employment laws governing the elderly
execs (thinking about the FCC) appear to have had Mumford & Sons sing “The Cave” instead of “Little Lion Man.”
Bob Dylan is a national treasure #Grammys
the dylan jam is the way it should be. lots of people just yelling out.
I want to come back as Bob Dylan’s hair. It just doesn’t give a fuck.
Maybe having some music in the middle of the show could become a Grammy tradition.
Pretty sure this is the Deadwood portion of the evening.
I am SO picking Mumford and Sons CD as my next NPR pledge premium.
Lead singer of Mumford & Sons looks like Boston Rob Mariano from “Survivor.” #Grammys
This the best hootenanny I’ve seen in years.
Is Dylan wearing bowling shoes?
Cross-Atlantic folk-off! Afraid Mumford’s crushing Avett Bros, but we still have Bob coming. Tho guess he counts as a ringer. #grammys #imr

OK, bye #Grammys

That looked like a very carefully vetted mosh pit. #grammys #imr

Glad to see some good exposure for #ATL

No, commercial, Johnny Depp is NOT Rango. He is the voice of Rango. Do you not know the difference, commercial? #PintoColvigISGoofy
Seriously why haven’t we ruined Hip Hop for black people yet?
Gaga says she took a master class in fame, but isn’t this all kind of paint by numbers?
Do you think lady g has underpants on?
I’m shocked by how many people are live-tweeting the Grammys. It’s the Grammys, people! It’s never been relevant, and is even less so today.
Wack lyrics, con. Pointy sholder pad shoulders and organ, pro. #grammys
If I’m not mistaken, that’s no ordinary egg Lady Gaga arrived in. She’s fully formed, so that’s a balut. Yum. #grammys
I didn’t know Howie Mandel was a part of Train
People can rip on Gaga all they want, but that was a beautiful statement of support for all of us with shoulder horns. #grammys
Pat said he would do it a while back on your show and he pulled through! That was awsome!
I have long since stopped caring about popular songs in commercials, but watching Shrek on a tablet to “Walk On the Wild Side” depresses me
Go Howard mentioned on the Grammy’s Train didn’t lie!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don’t think this dude will be mentioning me
This Gaga performance is a surprising dud. Video more her medium than live. #Grammies #imr
Don’t get this Gaga single. It’s not like Express Yourself has that great a melody anyway – why rip it off so blatantly? #Grammies #IMR
Score so far: One thank you for @HowardStern
, zero for God.
Has anyone tracked down Mr Mister to see how they feel about this song? Gotta help archive sales.
Please god not soul sister…
