Lady Gaga's outfit at the Grammy's last night says "Something's on it way..."
But we knew this.

The keyboardist for Dreamtheater has a great amount of talent. Pete Townshend has a great amount of talent. My friend back in high school had a great amount of talent, he could play any of that in his first year picking it up. I have tried to rationalize why everyone listens to this drivel. She is a highly marketed amateur and that is it. I will say one thing. She is a genius in the way she is marketed and has made money. Music related with all the electronic voice manipulation and "catchy beats". She is talentless. I know it is a matter of taste. My wife likes it, so I am not against it. I just find it to be very confusing.
This is how I feel. I believe it is truly sad that the rest of this world looks at the U.S. and says, wow that is popular over there. We actually have much more to offer.

I have no idea why, but if I ever want to be a musician, I'm throwing triangles all over my album cover and stuff.
Celestial visions of a shared eternity
spirits converging transcending this life corporeal
Energy entwined channelled mind to mind
sustaining conceived believed achieved
Strengthening in kind divine combining
the forging of souls from splintered to whole
purest love by devotions design
unification defining today tomorrow tomorrow
Annus Solaris we have begun
Annus Stellatus fixated to be
Annus Ventorum gift of the storm
by fate we are shown
