Stevie Nicks and Taylor Swift 2010 Grammys

Stevie Nicks (yes that Stevie Nicks!) and Taylor Swift at the Grammy's

Stevie Nicks:
A legend, a fashion icon, a songwriter, a beauty, and the woman embodying one of the greatest female rock voices of all time.
That is my view of Stevie in a nutshell.  Man, oh, man I love her.  I'm borderline obsessed with her.  There's just something so celestial about her, I know it's ironic with the witch vibes and all, but still.
Once in a million years a lady like her rises.
Truthfully, I liked it more in the 70's when she had that luscious wavy hair, but you gotta watch this video (I've stuck it on to the post before this one).  It's ethereal.

With that said, I know shes aged with the years, but to me shes still divine.  Someone who I don't find divine is Taylor Swift.
Sure, Tayla is pwetty, can play guitaw, drwesses weally pwettily, and wites her own songs, but she doesn't have what Stevie has: depth.

What I found to be sad is that the two blondes were put together on the same stage, and one was more dominant than the other.  Taylor's pitch was a little off even in her own song, but what was really horrifying was that Stevie only got to sing one verse of her own song signature song, Rhiannon.  Then Taylor stomped all over it.  Her voice and her hair alike were all over the place.  And it gets worse: Stevie did backup on Taylor's shitty song.  Backup I tell you, backup!
Wonder what you think know about giving Taylor those four awards now, deaf Grammy grannies!

I'm sorry, Stevie and Taylor do not belong together.

Goddamnit how come i don't know how to edit my blog!

Due to my lack of computer savviness I am unable to edit my blog the way I want to (layouts and such) because on the "help" part it looks really different from how the website looks like now.
 A wonderful way to show how I feel now is:

Oh great I don't even know how to put on a picture............

Another Cameron Crowe movie (sort of)

So I wrote at the beginning that I was a huge Almost Famous fan.  Makes me feel rock n' roll running through my veins.  Also makes me want to talk about nonexistant experiences that happened to me back in the seventies.  Of course, my mom did that job for me.

After returning from a friends house at quarter past midnight (I'm wordy like that), I suddenly felt like watching for the first time "Singles", a movie by Cameron Crowe, who I had naively decided that I like based on one good movie.

This is not to discourage you, dear open-hearted reader who happened to fall upon a new blog and pitied them.  In fact, I really enjoyed it.  The music kind of really really really really worked for me (I would have killed to be at a live Alice in Chains concert) but it made it slightly outdated, not that I can blame them it was at the time that this was still really cool and new.  But the sweet and quirky romances were delightful, simple yet meaningful.
In fact you can say that "Singles" has changed my life.  I will now stop saying my normal conceited "gazundtai" and look romantically into my elevator buddy's eyes and say:
