NOISE: Grammy noms...or nattering nabobs of nonsense?


The 49th Grammy nominations have been announced, and can we get a witness -- despite the feisty, principled stance by the Dixie Chicks and the continuing wonder of Mary J. Blige, are the Grammys still too hidebound and geriatric to really... matter?

Gnarlsome twosome.

I mean, we all pay attention to it, we've all been griping about it since the beginning of time -- but James Blunt, record of the year? Corinne Bailey Rae is cute n'all, but isn't Gnarls Barkley a complete shoo-in for this award? More nattering to come, for sure.
