« Young Estella | Main | Charlie Laughs at the Oscars »

February 01, 2010


For the second time in a very short period of weeks, I have come to your blog and found that we have used the same obscure word, in this case "phalanx," in very different contexts in our blogs totally unbeknownst to one another.

And I'm delighted, as always, to know that you are out and about hobnobbing with the talented!


You write the best event recaps. What is recap short for---recapitulation? Anyway, thanks for this. It was an emotional read and I don't even watch award shows.

Interesting to read about how the red carpet world is organized!

The concert looks really fun (and sounds like you had quite a week between the concert then the Grammys!_ but boy did they look uncomfortable in that interview.

we saw a lot of celebrities this weekend but our favorite ones were the miller family! it was a joy...

it is obvious that wilco would rather be on the chicago lakefront trails then at some stuffy LA uber commercial affair, good thing they r coming up here to the grungy pac nw! to breathe our best air!

is there anything more horrifying/entertaining than watching an inept reporter interview smart people who make up a band she probably had to look up on wikipedia a few seconds beforehand? great recap, and nice alliteration with "wilco wives" that sounds like a supercool club with a secret handshake and members only jackets before urban outfitters ruined that too.

Needless to say that I found your comparison to Mengele's selections rather unsettling.

I like celebrities when they are not in herds. I can't put myself into the crowd thing. Thankfully I am not working near any of this world after all.

Here's the playlist from that musical evening:

John Mellencamp and T Bone Burnett, "Down by the River"

Ozomatli, "Mr. Soul"

Jackson Browne, "Don't Let It Bring You Down"

Stephen Stills and Sheryl Crow, "Long May You Run"

Lady Antebellum, "Only Love Can Break Your Heart"

Norah Jones, "Tell Me Why"

Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris and Patty Griffin, "Comes a Time"

Wilco, "Broken Arrow"

Josh Groban, "Harvest Moon"

Everest, "Revolution Blues"

Dierks Bentley and Booker T. Jones, "Cinnamon Girl"

Ben Harper, "Ohio"

Keith Urban, John Fogerty and Booker T. Jones, "Rockin' in the Free World"

Elvis Costello, "The Losing End"

Jason Mraz, Shawn Colvin and the Grooveline Horns, "Lotta Love"

Dave Matthews, "The Needle and the Damage Done"

Red Hot Chili Peppers, "A Man Needs a Maid"

James Taylor, "Heart of Gold"

Elton John, Leon Russell, Neko Case, Sheryl Crow and T Bone Burnett, "Helpless"

Crosby, Stills & Nash, "Human Highway"

Sometimes "celebrities" think they are better then common folks, and it makes me laugh so hard!!!!!

Sure wish I could have been there! Then I missed Wilco in Montana because of a snowstorm here on the east coast cancelling my flight.
I have tickets to see Wilco in April, and here's hoping that no freak blizzard pops up!
