People Like Me. People Really Like Me.

So Feist is apparently performing on the Grammys tonight. After all, she's up for:
  • Best Female Pop Vocal for "1234"
  • Best New Artist
  • Best Pop Vocal Album for The Reminder
  • Best Short Form Music video for "1234"
I'm quite happy that she's become so popular, even though popularity is typically a quality in music to which I have an allergic reaction. Given the indie nature of the music that I tend to enjoy, commercial success is often a tricky matter. But I feel no discomfort with Feist's success -- although the ubiquity of "1234" is a bit annoying. (Definitely not my favorite track on The Reminder. That would be "I Feel It All.")

She's done it with integrity. The Reminder is a natural progression from Let It Die, her relatively obscure first album. Fans of Let It Die don't listen to The Reminder and think, "Huh? What happened?" (Unlike, say, when a fan of Nelly Furtado's "I'm Like a Bird" listens to "Promiscuous Girl." Talk about selling your soul. But I'm sure the millions help her sleep easy.)

I do wonder, though, whether I'd be a Feist fan now had I not discovered her well before the catalytic iPod commercial turned her into a pop phenomenon? Good thing I caught her at the rinky dink Knitting Factory way back when and don't have to deal with that hypothetical.

La plupart des entreprises diront qu'ils baskets nike roshe run noir anthracite utilisent "ceci ou cela" pour sécuriser les rivets, mais Air Jordan 9 soldes l'essentiel est que ce ne sont que des couches de corrections à asics gel nimbus 17 Baskets un design moins cher et vieux.
