Can I see a show of hands?

What's the best way to describe our music club in 28 characters or less?  Would it be our blog name "Stingless Music Club"?   Maybe "Music Club with a Hat"?    "Music Club Tastemakers at Work" is over 28 characters even though it describes us perfectly.  
Speak to me!

Sad State of Golden Statue Affairs

This might be the first year I don't watch (or maybe even care...) about the Grammy's. Perhaps I'm late to that game?  Is it my age (careful how you answer that!)?  Is the bar just lower because of the state of "popular" music?

Save for one artist in the Song of the Year category who is on my best of 2014, all I see is rubbish here... Discuss.

MC w/No Actual M?!

So, a crazy idea came to me as I was rolling my eyes (correction, rolling my left eye... the right one isn't quite Bell's Palsy free yet) and feverishly working to change the radio station as the intro to 'Jack and Diane' burned my eardrums.

What about an MC where we go for brunch or drinks or dinner and just bring songs to the table that nobody needs to hear EVER again?  In other words, no actual music would be played at MC.  We just bring a list and discuss seein' as we don't need to hear this shit ever again?! 

No rush to make it a reality, just a thought. One that might admittedly be induced by Oxy so feel free to respectfully decline.
