Grammys CEO Addresses Marilyn Manson, Louis CK Nominations: “We Won’t Look Back At People’s History”

Yesterday, the Recording Academy unveiled the nominations for next year’s Grammys. They were weird, in the way that Grammy nominations are always weird. ABBA and Sun Ra Arkestra were nominated for the first time ever. Taylor Swift and Kanye West are up against each other for Album Of The Year. Late Show bandleader Jon Batiste somehow led the field with 11 nominations. But people noted two nominees in particular: Marilyn Manson and Louis CK.

Grammy Nominations 2022: Surprises, Snubs, & More Takeaways

The Recording Academy continues to exist within its own strange dimension, one in which Jon Batiste is the center of the musical universe and the second Lady Gaga/Tony Bennett jazz duets album was one of the landmark popular music events of 2021. You have to hand it to them for the consistency, at least: So many extremely Grammys-esque artists were showered with nominations today in preparation for the Jan. 31 ceremony at, uh, Crypto.com Arena. Some of them, like Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber a...

Jason Sudeikis Channels Ted Lasso, Gets Devilish, And Boogies Again On A Solid And Silly Saturday Night Live

It's hard to believe that Jason Sudeikis hasn't hosted "Saturday Night Live" since he departed the show as a cast member back in 2013. But perhaps it's better that he didn't make his triumphant return until "Ted Lasso" came along and took his career to new heights, making him an Emmy winner and an even more charming leading man. Sudeikis' return to Studio 8H not only came with the revival of some bits that famously featured the comedian during his tenure on the show (not to mention some surprisi...

The end of fandom may be upon us

Louis C.K. recently kicked off a new standup tour with a sold-out pair of shows in New York. Against the backdrop of a giant "Sorry" sign, he delivered a set that -- according to a reporter who was there -- included gags about pedophilia, his penis, "gay jokes, Jew jokes, cancer jokes, a heavy helping of transgender jokes, and a sprinkling of additional race jokes."

Cue the jokes about feminist comedy.

I'm reading this in the Wisconsin State Journal:A local feminist organization plans to protest comedian Louis C.K.’s performances at Comedy on State next week, while seven female comics are offering counter-programming at Bos Meadery on Madison’s Near East Side. C.K. faced public shaming in 2017, at the height of the #MeToo movement, after he admitted to masturbating in front of five female comedians after years of denying rumors about that behavior. “Join us in the streets outside the venue Jul...

"Louis C.K. tickets sell out in Madison despite comedian's sexual misconduct."

 The Wisconsin State Journal reports.Four of C.K.'s Madison show were sold out by Monday afternoon, shortly after a Wisconsin State Journal story was posted online. A fifth show was listed as "tickets currently not available." Tickets were $30 before fees.That's in Madison, so I infer that Louis C.K. can do his show anywhere in America.

Gillmor Gang: Electrical Banana

Thanks I’m giving for the start of the first big online season. Yes, the pandemic has put in place a gigantic move to the digital for our immediate and accelerated future. We all know how this plays out in the required state of things pre-vaccine. But there’s an undercurrent not so hidden there of a dynamic answer to my wife’s stubborn question: Where’s my Jetpack? She’s a child of the 60s, a post-Beatles time of imploding dreams and dashed expectations. James Bond got to fly a Jetpack, but t...
