Hits me as almost unconscionable that I am paying $200 odd dollars a month to the thieving bastards at Time/Warner and the thieving bastards at cablevision have taken MSG (so no Knicks) and Fuse off Time Warner. Begging an answer to the musical question: how soon is now to burn down both institutions of advance thievery.
Fuse followed this up by suggesting we help publicize a giveaway of one (that's right ONE) ticket to the Grammys. I went to the Grammys in the 1990s and thought it was about as boring as anything could possibly be. I tend to watch the first half hour and then fall asleep in musical stupefaction. The VA's were always more fun.
Here is what Fuse sent to us:
"Hi Rock NYC,
I'm working with Fuse to help promote their Grammy Takeover sweepstakes, where one (1) lucky winner will have the chance to attend the 2012 Grammy Awards with a friend. This is a great chance for your readers on rock nyc to see the Grammys LIVE! Check out the sweeps details below:
The countdown to the Grammys has begun, and Fuse wants to send 1 lucky winner and a friend to the 2012 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California on February 12th! Not only will you go to the Grammys, you will get to walk the red carpet and attend the official Grammy after party!
