Awards Show Season

'Tis the season that awards nominations get announced. The only awards show I ever make a point of watching is the Oscars. Last year I even won the Oscar pool in my office. I really love winning. It feels so good.


The Grammy nominations came out today. I've never really been a fan of the Grammys. The only Grammy memory I have is watching Michael Jackson win a boatload for Thriller. Which reminds me, can you believe that Thriller came out 25 years ago? What's your favorite song off that album?

Is there any question? Billie Jeans, hands down.

Umm, I meant, "Billie Jean". 8 /

oh yeah, Billie Jean definitely. I also liked "The Girl is Mine", even though it was kind of a poor man's "Say Say Say" (cheesy, I know, but I loved it when Michael and Paul McCartney were all BFF and duet-ing). I think the last Grammys I saw was way back in the day when Lionel Ritchie won a whole armful. I don't know when the Grammys became so irrelevant.

My favorite is Billie Jean, too, although my all time fave MJ solo song is Man in the Mirror.

P.Y.T. is definitely my favorite from that album.
i want to start using that acronym somehow...
"hey, P.Y.T., can you get me a glass of water...thanks, baby..."

Hello NYC!

Almost forgot, I also really like Human Nature.

My favorite is Billie Jean too, although the Thriller 25 album has an unreleased song from the Thriller sessions called "For All Time". It's truly amazing. MJ was indeed the King of Pop. Why'd he have to go and get so many plastic surgeries and fuck so many children?!?
