Mr. Trump calls for exclusion of all Muslims from US; he's also called for mass Internet censorship, a "shutdown" of the Internet based on content.

Mr. Trump's New Hampshire campaign manager defended his exclusion proposal by comparing it to the mass internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.

Let me write that again in all caps:

HIS NEW HAMPSHIRE CAMPAIGN MANAGER DEFENDED THIS POLICY BY COMPARING IT TO THE MASS INTERMENTS OF JAPANESE-AMERICANS DURING WORLD WAR TWO.

I saw on Twitter last night a comment to the effect of, "The Democratic Party is now pretty much a big tent of everyone not actively trying to start a race war." Given that we are now back into "concentration camps were a GOOD IDEA" territory, I'm no longer convinced that's far off the mark.

Well, the Grammy awards shortlist came out on Monday, and to our… oh, honestly, complete lack of surprise… we did not make the shortlist in either category in which we were nominated. (Bone Walker for folk album; “Kitsune at War” for arrangement, instrumental or a cappella.)

Ah, well, it was tremendous fun while it lasted. But stopping here doesn’t take away that we did get a nod from an Academy member, we did get referred to the jury, we did make it past the jury, and we did become a long-list Grammy nominee.

Twice.

And while the long list was the end of the road for us this year, I’m still pretty damn chuffed about making that.

So thanks to everyone who had any part of any of the process, and hey – I’m finally starting to lay down my first new tracks in a while. Let’s see what happens next year. Because y’know what? We ain’t done here.

(Is there a Grammy Losers party? There should totally be a Grammy Losers party.)
