hahaha - shades of beige, that could not have been put any better. Uncrafted (or not well crafted) silly putty, basically.
I agree wholeheartedly with both Telliot's and Shadowplay's initial comments, I think that there are just a lot of bland people in the world. More so when it comes to art and music, but for some people, it's also clothes, furniture, jewelry, all kinds of things. Some people just aren't exposed to anything outside the norm, some just go with what's expected or dumped on them by the industry, but I think a lot of them just have no taste to speak of. I get not caring about some things, get what you need and move on, but not everything. That makes life bland, but I think a lot of people are bland, that's why so much crappy reality tv is making so much headway now.
And it's a shame, I'm finding what you said was done on the Grammys is being done more and more, (maybe it's having to be done more and more) - putting on an older band that has some real kind of creativity, soul, something, like The Time in this case, and then that instantly becomes THE artistic oasis in the desert that is the rest of the music on the show. The rest of the music that is getting awards. It kind of puts things in perspective when you witness that, and it kind of shows just how much of a sham a show like that is, and that it's a reflection not only on the industry itself, but the reflection of consumers of that industry as a whole.
Edit: Just thought about this part - to be clear, I have absolutely no idea who this guy is or what his music is like, and don't really care to find out, based on the descriptions & opinions here. I'm just commenting on the larger picture that this reflects.
