Recently, my car was struck by an unknown shopper in the Wal-Mart parking lot... at least, this seems the most likely suspect. So I filled out a police report describing the incident, and there was space on the back for a diagram. Yes, I turned this in as evidence to the Fayetteville Police Department. Let justice be served.
Mumford & Sons, The Avett Brothers, & BOB DYLAN -- I start here with my blog because this is how I got roped into watching the Grammys. I wasn’t planning on watching because there are only so many times I can hear about Eminem’s “Recovery” album and how revolutionary he is as an artist (more on this later). Back to Dylan & friends... I seem to have lost my socks.... because they were just rocked off... DYLAN FEVER FOR LIFE!
Norah Jones, John Mayer, & Keith Urban -- “Jolene”. Dolly, I love ya girl... can Norah please sing all of your songs?
Eminem - His anger kinda terrifies me... but I don’t entirely hate him. I wish the Academy would take into account the number of seconds that will inevitably be bleeped out.... because I’m pretty sure it was about 1/3 of the song with Rhianna. Which brings me to my next point...
Rhianna - Oh girl. It’s not that I don’t like you... I’m just confused by you. You were once so normal...First things first... clothing is, in fact, an option. So, let’s deal with that and then (if there’s time) we’ll discuss your hair. Normalcy: also an option.
Side bar: how old is Dr. Dre these days? I was uncomfortable during his performance with Em.
John Legend - Looking sharp in that grey suit!
Mick Jagger - He certainly gets around well for a 68 year old. Great performance!
Barbara Streisand - Bored with the song, but I do love her. I want to go watch What’s Up, Doc?
Lady Antebellum - 3 Grammys. This pleases me.
Arcade Fire - Grammy performance or Mountain Dew commercial? Hard to say... I hope nobody in the audience suffers from epilepsy. And oddly enough, this was the only performance of the night NOT to involve fire.

I have never witnessed snow like this in Arkansas... or anywhere really. Fortunately, my roommates and I have season 2 of Lost to keep us entertained until we are able to venture outside... which by the looks of things, may not be for a very. long. time. Godspeed.
