Mind Status: Blown
OK Go has been nominated for a Grammy.

Allow me to repeat that: OK Go has been nominated for a Grammy. The category is "Best Short Form Music Video."

This is officially my favorite moment in Grammy Award history (Sorry, ODB!). But that could change on February 11th, especially if they win. Because it would sure be a lot of fun to hear Damian thank his strength and Tim thank his cunning.

Does short form video get a speech? I mean, it's obvious that they should, but is that one of the awards they just hand out beforehand or something?

Congrats! When you consider the fact that you guys did this thing totally on your own, on a tiny budget, you deserve it! Good luck!

Hey, this is one of the upmost important thing on the menu right now. I mean I will be beside myself if you guys lose, but I'm still so excited to see how this is all going to play out, I am really happy for you guys, don't worry support has been sent, and I'm sure that everyone else will agree when I say that we are utterly pleased with your accomplishment.

WHEN you guys win (because there is no "if") and Damian and Tim give a speech thanking their cunning and strength, I promise to send you all a bottle of wine, or a pack of gum, your choice. lol. But seriously, I'll do it.

And congrats, of course.

Congratulations*...and you did it without smoke, mirrors, or money!

Whatever happens in February, you have already won. There is no one else in your class.

Way to go because seriously that would be amazing if you won...especially since the video was made on a low budget. Ha, it'll show everyone that you don't have to have a fancy video in order to rock!

is this the blog im supposed to comment on??? ...oh well it here it goes


hey guys!
I just wanted to tell ya'll how amazing you guys were on wednesday night! (99x mistletoe jam). It was totally worth the hour and a half drive. I have wanted to see you guys live for so long! You guys sounded amazing. I wish you could have played longer. My friends and I tried really hard to find you guys after you played,but we couldnt find you anywhere. I think people probably got annoyed at us asking if ya'll were coming out lol. My friend Dominic did get Damians pick,though.So I just wanted to tell you guys how awesome you were and how happy you make me. Congrats on the grammy!!!!! you're totally gonna win.
lots of love, Kelley L.

p.s. the dvd makes me smile :D

I would say how deeply awesome and fantastic--and all those other adjectives that are pretty pointless, it's the way you say them that counts--you guys are, but everyone's already said that. So...it doesn't really matter. Have you READ these? The people love you. We all love you.

Yes! Congratulations! You deserve it and you're so gonna win, cause it's my birthday on Feb. 11th and it's obvious what I'm going to wish for when I blow out the candles (besides another show in Germany...)
So, prepare yourself to make an awesome speech!

Well deserved, and they'd be crazy not to pick you. It would be so gratifying to see uncommon ingenuity and good clean fun win out over bling-bling special effects, gratuitous sex and tired old cliche ideas. Not that you guys aren't as slick as porfessionals, working the YouTube system and all, but the marketer in me loves you for that, too!

I think Ok Go should roll up to the Grammys dressed as the Red Hot Chili Peppers! Even if they lose, they will have the last laugh!!!

Australia loves OK Go! So how about coming downunder and showing us your new gym class skills (beats the hell out of Jane Fonda anyday). If you don't get the Grammy for this one the Amerciacan music industry obviously takes itself way to seriously.
OK Go...OK!
