And here we are — the best and worst of the rest at the Grammy Awards. When they weren’t blinding me with sparkle or causing me to shout, “WTF?!” the red carpet was a mix of good, bad, and meh Grammy fashions.

10 Reasons We Love Arcade Fire, This Year’s Album Of The Year Winner


I almost wanted to have a Kanye moment last night when Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs lost to The Black Keys’ Brothers for Best Alternative Music Album at the Grammys. Don’t get me wrong—I love the Keys. But I mean, Arcade Fire made one of the best albums of all time! Much like Mr. West, all I needed to do was be patient—the situation was rectified by the end of the night. Arcade Fire pulled off a major upset over Eminem, Lady Gaga, Lady Antebellum, and Katy Perry, unexpectedly winning last night’s top prize for Album of the Year. I actually squealed when Barbra Streisand opened the envelope and called their name, because I am a hardcore Arcade Fire fan and have long been bummed about their bad Grammy luck. (Their first two records lost to The White Stripes for Best Alternative Album.) And the smile on Win Butler’s face in this exit performance of “Ready to Start” is about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, after the jump, I enumerate 10 reasons I love Arcade Fire. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My Dad Is My Valentine

This morning, like every morning, I poked my computer “on” and shuffled into the kitchen to pour myself a cup of coffee. Sitting in my favorite mug next to the coffee maker was a package of Reese’s peanut butter hearts. I scampered into the living room to find my dad. “Thank you!” I trilled. “Happy Valentine’s Day!” He just grinned. “I tried to get you a heart-shaped box of chocolates,” he said, “but I think I waited too long because they already had Easter candy out last night.”

My dad does this every year and every year it makes me really happy to be his daughter. Even the years when I’ve been at college, living in an apartment on my own or studying abroad in Europe, Dad has made sure I had a box of chocolates on Valentine’s Day. Yes, it might sound loser-ish, but to me it’s totally sweet: my dad is my Valentine. I don’t mean for this to be creepy, but I am being sincere. My dad as a Valentine has never disappointed.
