  1. Love her.

  2. the Grammys are basically irrelevant--who even knew they were on? But I thought that was a geniuinly beautiful moment. Whitney managed to keep her shit together for five minutes and acted gracious and respectful. Hudson addressed her tragedy without being maudlin or spoiling the joy of the moment. I really hope she has a wonderful career and does her mama and family proud.

  3. the fact that Coldplay won something and Radiohead did not makes me sad.

    And what I consider to be some of the best albums from last year--Bon Iver, Sigur Ros, Lykke Li, Department of Eagles, School of Seven Bells, High Places, Frightened Rabbit . . . were nowhere to be found.

  4. I don't know how she held it together.

    Now J, aim for an Emmy and a Tony! Do the Rita Moreno thing! You can!
