has invited Jannet Jackson & justin Timberlake back to the Grammy's Sunday nite. Go to and express your opinion. How stupid can they be?

Darn, I missed the whole thing---I got up and hip-hopped to the smallest room in my house and by the time I hip-hopped back(I got Arthur's syndrome in my hips and ankles) it was all over. But thankfully, CNN and MSNBC filled me in plenty of times afterwards. Only one thing.........all those Jackson's sure are strange, Janet's whole right chest looks like a checkerboard..........

Oh yes, can anybody tell me the meaning of that old sixties song, "I've got a brand new pair of rollerskates; you've got a brand new key"?????

unlike the "SB" you have been given a warning of what will be on the program. it is your choice whether to watch that c**p or not.

I agree,If you don't support thier programing choices then don't watch.I won't.

The networks run out of New York and Calif. They live in a different world than the rest of us. They just look down at us "common folk" as they fly coast to coast.

Mike, you are absolutely right! the younger entertainers as many politicians live in Bubbles, applauded by close associates who have $$ and power, not morality guiding them. What angers me, is that they came out of that bubble MTV and invaded my space on Super Bowl Sunday. Hopefully they have retreated back into their own cages, realizing we are of a higher morality out here.

I think that's a great idea. I can't think of a better place for them to be, unless it's in france.
Since the award ceremony is of less intrest to me than the reproductive life of a flea, let the sick puppies, entertain their contemporaries.
It will keep them off the streets and the screens and perhaps save the morals of a kid or two.

Your right about that Ron. What bothers me the most about the half time show was that MTV was allowed to invade my favorite sport with their idea of musical Art. Janet J. and that whole 1/2 time contribution will never see another Super Bowl contract. Got to give the NFL management credit. CBS has just put themselves in the same catagory as MTV. That's not going to fare well with 60% of viewers of whom are over 40.

Don't get me wrong, I never watch the grammy's. I just had to let CBS know that if this is what they think real people want, they are wrong.

Cowlady    Posted 02-07-2004 at 12:43:41       [Reply]  [No Email]
I believe if you dance with the devil, you can't cry ouch after you got burnt!

The grammy's represent todays music. We all know what todays music is about...Use your common sense and decide if it's something you want to watch or not!

never watched that garbage won,t start now especially.

You call that cr-p music? Why talented performers find a need to introduce s-x into their body language and lyrics amazes me. What amazes me more is that their making millions off it and our younger generation is buying it.

Music hasn't changed any since my day, only the titles and performers. Whatever, "I FOUND MY THRILL ON BLUEBERY HILL" means???

~Lenore question?    Posted 02-07-2004 at 14:12:34       [Reply]  [No Email]
You think?????

Blueberry Hill

I found my thrill
On Blueberry Hill
On Blueberry Hill
When I found you

The moon stood still
On Blueberry Hill
And lingered until
My dream came true

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows you made
Were never to be

Though we're apart
You're part of me still
For you were my thrill
On Blueberry Hill

The wind in the willow played
Love's sweet melody
But all of those vows you made
Were never to be

Though we're apart
You're part of me still
For you were my thrill
On Blueberry Hill

Not exactly Jackson or Timberlake style, I dont think!!

Sounds like old Fats Domino, to me.

I'm from that generation of "older folks" who liked/like the music of the 50's.

However- there is an ongoing debate as to what "Blueberry Hill" means--some good cases made for the different meanings. But I'd say it can mean whatever you want it to mean--and still enjoy a good song!

Bringing someone or something DOWN to ones own level is a time tested way of demeaning a work of art in order to elevate a work of indignation. It has been done for centuries. Those that Find ones "thrill on blueberry hill" to have an off color meaning are the same individuals that find fault in some of the greatest works of art this country has produced. The mother goose ryhme of "Jack & Jill" has also been unfairly labeled by devient minds.

Oh that PI$$ thing the up roar was about is art ? more at SICK

Gosh, sometimes I think I am so naive!
I just thought Blueberry Hill was a place,
you know a location.
I liked Fats Domino's music,
it all sounded pretty much alike but it was fun music.
I liked "Blue Monday", too.
Dont think it can be compared to what is on MTV today.
Fats just sat at his piano and smiled a lot.

I quit watching since music went out of "music".
I refuse to waste my time on that trash. In order to hear one or two I might enjoy; I would have to watch two hours of pure agony. I am not a masochist and my time is precious to me.
Watching some boy/man in baggy low slung pants ma$turbating on my TV screen is not my idea of entertainment. Nor is some half nude girl pushing her genitals at the audience my cup of tea either. I think if everyone who feels offended would write to the sponsors it might help. I have thought of doing that but I would have to watch it. Maybe I will turn the sound off and just write down sponsors names, then contact them.

Waht's the difference between bad music and a 'sport' that isn't one?

Just wondereing how you justify the difference...

Pray tell....what does one have to do with the other?

Lenore, you hit the nail on the head honey! I got Shelby away from "pop" music long ago. She is a diehard country fan. I want her to know the words to songs that have meaning, not a bunch of thumping and booming and grinding. Most country songs have a message they want to get across. Since you love Travis Tritt, you'll know of a certain song that says just that. "Country Ain't Country No More" That song rips my heart out, because it is SO true. If we don't turn ourselves around we are gonna destroy ourselves, I tell ya. Okay, I am getting stirred up, getting down off the box now, lol. You all know what I mean.

where you been Kelly, remember Sammi Smiths big hit song "Help me make it through the night" , can't get more definite than that. Or Conrad Twitty and his seductive songs? Same thing only different times. Only now they can't sing

Les    Posted 02-07-2004 at 14:16:03       [Reply]  [No Email]
Well, Kelly, "country" is sure a better place to be but if you really want your kid to have the best chance to grow up right, get her hooked on bluegrass and southern gospel.

Harrison    Posted 02-07-2004 at 18:16:57       [Reply]  [No Email]
I agree bluegrass.The best music God give us common folk.Once you like it ,you always like it.

I had to chuckle a bit at this conversation. Do you remember when Elvis came out? Parents had this same conversation about his hips and movements and songs.
I'm a country music gal myself. But even some of those songs are pushing the limit.

Jon(WI)    Posted 02-07-2004 at 15:29:36       [Reply]  [No Email]
The girations that Elvis displayed were by himself on stage and believed rythm inspiring. Today the "bump & grind" involves at least two "entertainers" and explicetly reveals the movements of copulation (sorry), doggy style. In my book, that is going too far!!!

Aprille    Posted 02-08-2004 at 04:16:36       [Reply]  [Send Email] goes..I'm gonna get a boot in the butt probly but oh well..I have never liked Elvis..Black leather wearin' Elvis OR Gold Lame' Elvis..May have just been too tainted from seeing Burlesque at such a young age that nothing surprised me( Age 2) Janet did was SO foul..not unexpected obviously from the pastie tapped over her nipple but just gross!! My 15 yr old and his bud and I were watching ..I KNEW they were waiting for a respnse from me but I just said..oh..Cool..and let it go..Yeah..DEFINATELY a oops..NOT!! I don't know about Fats..he was just neat..Brand New Pair Of Rollerskates has to be taken in the time it was written..60's..folk music.. I happen to love James Taylor..the only bad song is Steamroller..and it's basically a hit or miss song..he has stayed true to his folk roots..BAD JANET AND JUSTIN!!
