Michael Jackson Tribute Song

Apparently I (@angrykeyboarder) was the only person on Twitter (who obviously doesn’t spend all day there like many do – I prefer FriendFeed) who wasn’t aware of this.

Diddy (@iamdiddy) got a group (The Game featuring Chris Brown, Diddy, Polow Da Don, Mario Winans, Usher and Boyz II Men) together and quickly wrote and recorded a tribute song to Michael Jackson and posted it on the Web for all to download.

I just (approximately 11:00 PM, Pacific Time) read about it here.  You can download the song from this page.

Very impressive work by all parties concerned.

I can’t believe I was so late to the party. I live on these Internets.

The Grammy Awards

I almost never watch them. I think the last time I saw them was whatever year OutKast was on performing  Hey Ya!.

Most of the show generally bores me to tears. I love music, but the show still bores me.  And of course there are the categories that I don’t care about (e.g. Country).

On the other hand, every year I find out what I missed; and inevitably there were one or two performances I would have loved to have seen.  One of theses days I’ll get smart, record the show, wait a day or two till I hear what was good and then fast forward to those parts.

This time I wish I’d seen The Time with Rhianna.  For those that saw the show, I’m actually more interested in the former than the latter (although I do like Rhianna). However, Jam and Lewis are musical geniuses. And Morris Day (and his “attitude”) always cracked me up.

If The Time ever has (another?) a reunion tour, I’d be among the first to buy tickets.

It’s funny, this post came about thanks to a  blog entry I “stumbled upon“.  It’s a (rather negative) review. It’s too bad the writer can’t spell “Grammys”.

Dude, You’re Getting a Daiquiri!

Ben Curtis, famous just a few years ago as “Steven the Dell Dude,” is now a waiter / bartender at Tequila Flats in New York. Although the Steven ads were hugely popular and generated tons of buzz (and revenue) for Dell, the company eventually dropped the campaign after Ben got arrested for buying pot in 2003.
