Bruno Mars Lobs a Grenade

If the Hawaiian pop sensation Bruno Mars fails to win more than one Grammy tomorrow, we’ll consider putting a bullet between our eyes.


We discovered Bruno thanks to a piece in the current issue of New Yorker (February 14 & 21, 2011, p.120-122).

Since we purchased his top of the charts Grenade track on iTunes ($1.29) Thursday, we’ve been listening to it ad infinitum.

    Yeah, the New Yorker piece mentions Bruno’s contribution to Cee-Lo Green’s hit number F*ck You in the second paragraph.

    Nice track. Might buy this one too.

    But we like Grenade better.

    He always has great “romantic” songs – very popular with the ladies. Some other hits of his:

    Just the way you are

    Nothin on you (BoB technically) – Responds:

    You write: Some other hits of his: Just the way you are

    At high schools across America, a large number of senior boys will be reciting his “Just the Way You Are” to their first serious girlfriends.

    hi SI, wanted to thank you for the book recommendation, ‘Nine Lives’.

    I bought the book instantly after your piece on it, read the first three stories, and put it away. last night I got it out and read the 4th story, and felt, haven’t I heard this guy on DD and the memory was kind of vague (according to readers digest, memories can be deceptive, since we remember things that didn’t happen, or remember it the way it didn’t happen).

    Thank You for the recommendation.

    I also found this link, while searching for William Dalrymple, It’s an interesting read, about Hyderabad. Recommends:

    Oh my, do people still read Reader’s Digest?

    We fondly remember reading I am Jane’s Breast and I am John’s Heart in Reader’s Digest back in the old days.

    Thanks for the link on the Nizam. Will definitely read the piece.

    Yes, the RD is read still. BTW have you heard the song “Devil Went Down to Georgia” by Charlie Daniels Band. chances are that you have. heres the link
    checkout the awesome fiddle playing. responds:

    Don’t recall hearing Devil Went to …. Even if we have, probably forgotten it.

    Will listen to it again in a little while.

    BTW, we’re intrigued about jazz guitarist Herb Ellis (after listening to a snippet of his music yesterday when the Grammy hosts briefly mentioned his passing away). Will listen to Herb as well later today.

      Off Topic: Why is it that all the ‘good’ things are always an outcome/aftermath of pain? ๐Ÿ™ Responds:

      As almost every pornographic writer has said, there’s no pleasure without pain. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Do you think the over-35 crowd is matured? hey.. I like to dance the veritable white trash Ke-dollarsign-ha’s songs and watch porn too! The music video of “Blow” kept me engrossed.. She makes out with a Unicorn and James Van Der Douche pulls out a bra from under his shirt. I am liking this curiousboy.. (sort of like a sensitive Beavis/Butthead) ๐Ÿ™‚ Responds:

        1. You write: Do you think the over-35 crowd is matured?

        Matured? Certainly, in all the right places. Mature? Hopefully!

        2. You write: I am liking this curiousboy..

        He’s gone away sulking.

        3. The song (above YouTube link) is kinda growing on us. But the video, ugh, is beastly, bestial, ghastly, garish….

        • เฎฎเฏเฎฉเฎฟAndy   March 22, 2011 at 9:50 am

          thanks.. This Muenster cheese has matured now ๐Ÿ™‚

          The garishness matches the mood of the song.


          We prefer our cheese on the whiter side. Find the yellowish/orangish color distasteful and off-putting.

          Craving a nice movie. Maybe, we’ll check out what’s new on Netflix Instant Play!
