0094 Kanye and Taylor Swift @ the MTV Awards 2010

Monday, October 4th, 2010

“but tonight you’ll live it all again…”

A two parter, and I know this is old, but after listening again to both Taylor Swift and Kanye’s live performances  at the MTV awards, I want to say how f’in brilliant this spectacle was. I don’t know if they’re on the same label or not, or if Kanye knew her song was going to be about him? I hope he didn’t. Listening to the lyrics of  Innocent right after reading Kanye’s twitter stream apology a couple days prior plays like a modern music version of a Shakespearean play. The PR flacks who threw this one together deserve maximum credit for getting every last cent out of the Kanye/ Taylor Swift fiasco.

Listen to the best part of Taylor Swift’s song Innocent where she forgives Kanye, I love it.

And then Kanye to close out the show, with the weight of the night on his shoulders, blows the roof off with his MPC.

Listen to the best part of Kanye’s song Runaway with Pusha  T. where he makes a toast to scumbags and asks you to Runaway. Damn!

“…she sounds just right”

Don’t you hate it when you’re at the bar with your buddy and you hear some footsteps, and you’re like “Oh yeah, you know what that sounds like…click clack click clack… a lady”! But then it turns out it was just a man with petite feet. The man had petite feet, and a feminine step, he sounded like a lady when he walked into the room. Oh well.

Federico @ 4:54
Brenda @ 5:21
Claire @ 6:00 – TBPOTS

3 softies in a row I know.. but I want to stay on this visual theme which started with the Moby post. Lets do this Kerouac style.

What a song, her voice is like silk, love the piano, one of the best TV shows ever, great finale, great use of music, was Sia a fan of the show? Watching this is sad, but also not, I miss Claire, and Nate, whoever put this finale together is an artist, who says there’s nothing good on TV, are you moved by this? Did you cry? 22,000 views isn’t that much, lots of passionate commenters on youtube, imagine hearing the strings live, the part when Ruth looks over at Nate and then closes her eyes is heavy, Nate was awesome, life is beautiful!

“I Cyrus, take you Eleanor, to be no other than yourself”

GG fans, here’s one for ya. Remember this from the episode where Bart dies. The song gets a good 3 or 4 minutes at the end, and this part is when Chuck finally softens up to Blair.

The wedding is really the best though, sorry Chuck.
