red carpet brings this woman into perspective

Somehow, despite being a voting member of the Academy, I forgot that tonight is the Grammy Awards. It's a bit too late to find company for the local NARAS chapter awards telecast (complete w/ open bar...a good recouping of my annual dues), so I'll watch at home instead. While watching the red carpet show on E, there was an amusing exchange between singer Duffy and E host Ryan Seacrest. The entire interview was very flirty (not just in the obsequious butt-kissing way of celeb interviews...Duffy was totally hitting on him), and at the end, while talking about her dress, she asks him "would you like to tap it", and he gave an eager reply of "yes". Hard to tell who was more surprised at the double entendre, her or him. She seemed to have meant to do it, it took him an extra beat to get it. And I laughed.

I forget who I voted for, but I know I'm looking foward to seeing Radiohead and the USC Marching Band perform together. Glad to see Radiohead breaking new ground, using a college marching band is a very origina--- oh...,wait.

if you're so entertaining, then why are you on your own tonight?

via a google chat link from EC..speed-dating for smiths fans in new york. apparently, the women vastly outnumbered the men. the social-scientist/statistician in me suspects sampling error, as the population of single morrissey-loving guys ae either too gay, too celibate, or too reclusive to go to an event like this in numbers comparable to women. and funny how the comments section got thread-jacked by gwar fans.

EC also wants all bay area folks to demand that morrissey play here before or after coachella.
