    Since this seems to be Grammy Season, I’m resurecting the Scammy’s on this BBS. Rate artists for the following catagories:

    Album of the year (artist ignored by RIAA catagory)

    Album of the year (artist approved by RIAA)

    Worst album of the year

    Album with hit single most likely to be found in $1.99 bin next year

    Guilty pleasure album of the year

    And whatever you want to add on

    Cool! I’ll play:
    Album of the year: Guided by Voices–Isolation Drills (not their best disk, but I can’t come up with anything better!)
    HM: PJ Harvey (I think that she would fall in with the time frame), Modest Mouse, Radiohead, Ben Folds, Radiohead

    Approved: Outkast–Stankonia (only one I actually own)

    Worst: LINKIN PARK (just for the simple fact they actully got nominated)

    $1.99: U2 (well, I can hope…)

    Guilty pleasure: I have no guilt! Maybe Weezer followed by Tenacious D

    Top 5 shows HTW got to see this year (in no particular order:
    1. J
    2. Built to Spill
    3. Guided by Voices
    4. Bad Religion/Promise Ring
    5. Weezer & the D

    Honorable mention: Ben Folds, Steven Malkmus, Pilfers

    RIAA = Recording Industry Artists of America I believe.

    They’re the nazi-eqsue music ‘trade association’ that makes sure americans pay $18 for new CDs, can never use any type of file-sharing software legally, and most recently sell defective CDs that have crackles and pops when extracted to MP3s. I believe they’re funded by the 6 major labels (Sony, Universal, AOL/WB, etc..). The RIAA is who went after Napster, MP3.com, Gnutella, and so forth.

    I actually have a cease-and-desist letter from the RIAA circa 1998. They were so concerned about people trading analog copies (tapes!) of live concerts. It’s really unfortunate that they spent a whole year trying to threaten people to stop *trading* things that could never be purchased in a store. Heads up their asses as usual…
