Oi, if you're looking for Poetry Train, I posted it HERE It's a beautiful little one by Emily Dickinson. Go. It's short -- take you about 20 seconds... I'll wait...
The Writer's Strike is OVER!! Woot woot woot.
Now the question is whether or not they can get the scripts written for the existing shows to let them finish the season or if they'll say Frig It and just forward them all to next season (which would really blow). I want my LOST!
Grammy Awards -- I missed the beginning (Hubby just HAD to watch Extreme Home Makeover) and it's not over yet, but so far, so WOW!
Kanye West performed Stronger (I totally dig that song) and he the funkiest stage and his jacket lit up and it was just COOL. Made me want to dance around the living room.
Aw jeez... I might as well confess... I DID dance around the living room ;)
Tina Turner is 68. I only know this because she looked so freaking amazing during her performance that I had to google her for info. SIXTY-EIGHT!! My God, that woman looks hot. No wrinkles, toned body (she was wearing a sleeveless silver spandex-like jumpsuit) and danced her ass off. Beyonce came out to perform with her a bit and it really was a stunning performance.
Alicia Keyes was wonderful and Amy Winehouse (live via satellite) looked clean. I mean hygiene-wise AND sober. No dirty ballet slippers and grimy appearance. Beehive was neat and her skin looked lovely. She was a bit shaky when she sang Rehab, but her other song (the name escapes me) was excellent.
Back to Kanye West -- he won a couple of awards so that should prevent a temper tantrum or two. But his acceptance speech didn't contain even a smidge of humble. That man is the cockiest creature on Earth!
The best line of the night was given by Vince Gill when he went up for an award that had been announced/given by Ringo Starr. He said (something to the effect of) "Wow, I've just been given an award by a Beatle. Has that happened to you yet, Kanye?" woo-hoo! ROTFLMAO
And because I'm an old woman (heee) I was tickled when Andre Boccelli came out to perform with Josh Groban. *sigh*
This being the big 50 for the Grammys, they threw some nostalgia at us with Fogerty, Jerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, Keelie somebody (oops, forgot her already). I'm going to shut up about this except to say I believe that Little Richard alone is keeping Maybelline in business.
Overall, a very enjoyable show. No outrageousness, which may cause critics to call it boring (God forbid) but I loved it.
And now that the writer's strike is over (WOO HOO!!) I look forward to the Oscars. What can I say -- I'm an award show junkie.
