Grammys

  1. We’ve Got An Update On Guillermo Del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth Musical!

    Once More With Feeling

    Considering the ever-wonderful Guillermo del Toro has a tendency of talking up several different projects at once, when we first heard he was working on a musical version of Pan's Labyrinth, we were skeptical. But thanks to the Grammy Awards, we have news on that front!

    Braaaaiiiinnnnns

    Looks like people were really craving some zombie action. The midseason premiere of AMC's The Walking Dead drew in huge viewership on Sunday despite airing at the same time as the Grammy Awards and Downton Abbey

  3. Guys I Think Carrie Underwood is in The Hunger Games

    Real Or Not Real?

    Last night at the Grammys Carrie Underwood stood stock still in a silver satin dress to sing her hit "Blown Away." After an evening where one band was literally, intentionally rained on, it seemed somewhat subdued. At least, it did until the projectionist started up. May the odds be ever in Ms. Underwood's favor.

  4. Grammys Formally Recognize Video Games

    Though everyone's favorite Swahili title menu song recently won a Grammy, video games weren't formally recognized by the Grammy Awards as of then, and the song only won because it was released on a full length album by the song's composer. However, video games can now win Grammys on their own terms, without having to release on some other form of media first, as the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences has changed four annual award categories, which now recognize music from video games.

    The changed categories are The Music for Visual Media, Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media, Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media, and Best Song Written for Visual Media, all of which cover the areas of Motion, Television, Other Visual Media, and now Video Games.

    Though video games have now been separately recognized as a viable form of media, Vice President for the awards of the Academy Bill Freimuth understands that this isn't where the recognition of video game music should stop: "I think this could be viewed as a first step in the direction of video games getting their own category." With events like Video Games Live and soundtracks being given out with every other game these days, the Academy is only hurting themselves by not giving video game music the recognition it deserves.

  5. Migraine Aura, Not Stroke, Caused Reporter’s Grammys Aphasia, Doctor Says

    Though a video of CBS News reporter Serene Branson uttering gibberish at the Grammys instantly went viral earlier this week, amusement in some quarters quickly turned to widespread concern when viewers with medical backgrounds or family experience pointed out that Branson's aphasic speech patterns seemed like they could have been the result of a stroke. CBS was further criticized when it was revealed that after paramedics checked her out, Branson simply went home rather than immediately getting a more comprehensive neurological scan. Fortunately, it appears that Branson's speech patterns can be explained by something called a migraine aura, which is far less dangerous than a stroke.

  6. Obnoxious Bieber Fans Deface Esperanza Spalding’s Wikipedia Page

    In retaliation over Esperanza Spalding's win for best new artist over Justin Bieber in last night's Grammy awards someone, presumably a Justin Bieber fan, defaced Spalding's Wikipedia page. The user added "JUSTIN BIEBER DESERVED IT GO DIE IN A HOLE. WHO THE HECK ARE YOU ANYWAY?" The user also added "Quesadilla" to Spalding's name on the page. Spalding, who is of mixed Spanish and African-American ancestry, is an accomplished musician and singer, notable for her use of a stand-up bass which she plays while singing. Her style leans on the jazzier end of the musical spectrum, though she has voiced a desire to simply be recognized as a musician of popular music. This particular display of rivalry from supposed Bieber fans is especially disheartening since both Bieber and Spalding share unique stories, rising from obscurity and building their reputations as successful performers. Since the person who defaced Spalding's page could not answer his or her own question by simply scrolling down the page, here are some highlights from Wikipedia that will hopefully shed some light on who she is, anyway.

  7. Cee Lo Green Pulls an Elton With Muppets at Grammys

    Last night, America tuned in to see which bands would take home the gold plated paperweights that indicate success in the music industry. What they were probably not expecting to see was Cee Lo Green dressed in a sequined bird costume performing a cleaned up version of his hit song "F---- You" backed up by a band of muppet-esque creatures. Oh, and Gwyneth Paltrow was there reprising her appearance on Glee, or something. Green, who rose to prominence with Danger Mouse as part of Gnarls Barkley was apparently invoking Elton John's performance on the Muppet Show from years back, using the same costume and surrounding himself with muppets.You can take a look and judge for yourself.
