The only important thing about the Grammies  
Christopher Tin's Baba Yetu, aka the main theme for Civ4 won a Grammy last night! And he won a Grammy for the album Calling All Dawns which featured Baba Yetu as the lead track. This is the first time a video game theme has won a Grammy, though obviously it had to sneak it's way around as a "real" CD release in order to do it. Still, pretty awesome. When i realized i had just started playing Civ4 again for the first time in months just hours before the Grammies took place i was a little worried that i might jinx it somehow, but no such (bad) luck :) Unfortunately if they showed the award during the broadcast it was after i went to bed at 11 last night =P

Just for fun, here's a video of the song set to some fountains in Dubai (more impressive than it sounds) and a cute parody of the song. And of course if you actually want a copy of the music you can buy it at Christopher Tin's website.
