The song that cleaned up at the '67 Grammys [VIDEO]

Set your PVR and crank up your Twitter snark for February 8, when the annual snootful of schmaltz that is The Grammys returns to assault your understanding of what music is.

PRO TIP: If you approach this broadcast as a buffet of what children find entertaining and what tweens find titillating, you will be less confounded. Keep your hopes and dreams of what music should be for CBC Radio 2. I'll see you on their Twitter feed where we can digitally high five each other when our Elvis Costello requests are played.

Here's the tune that was the belle of the ball at the 1967 Grammys. (Yes, this was the year Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was eligible.)

I'm up, up and away to my walk-in medicine cabinet.

Shit moms love: Mark Ronson [VIDEO]

Sure, you might know the name mostly because your hidden love of tabloid mags led you to an indepth knowledge of Lindsay Lohan's love life which, of course, included a tired tangle with The Lady Ronson, designer and DJ Samantha Ronson.

But now, because of Bruno Mars and the blessing to your ears that is Uptown Funk, her brother is on your radar.

Witness this, The Man Ronson:
Hel-the-fucking-lo there.
Don't worry, he's 39. Phew. Not like that other guy that all the moms are swooning over as Team Canada rocks the World Juniors:
Team Canada captain Curtis Lazar is just 19, so let's all try to calm the christ down, ok?

Your real horoscope: December 15-21

ARIES (March 21 - April 20):
Most of the shit you’re working on doesn’t matter, so stop because no one cares and life is ultimately meaningless. 
Now you’ll have more free time to chill at Starbucks.

TAURUS (April 21 - May 21):
We get it, you’re the greatest. We know already, so stop telling us. Stop talking altogether. No one likes it when people talk to them.

GEMINI (May 22 - June 21):
You do you. So what if no one else cares and you will ultimately die alone? Do your thing. It’s probably awesome.

As seen at your funeral: A giant statue of you at work

Hockey hero Jean Béliveau is a national treasure and is rightfully being recognized in the wake of his passing last week. But photos from the public viewing underway at the Bell Centre in Montreal made me wonder what it would be like if you were celebrated à la Béliveau.

Check this out:

What if your public viewing took place where you work, festooned with banners blaring your employer's corporate brand identity and there was a big, striking statue of you doing your job? (Picture a huge sculpture of you frowning at a spreadsheet on your monitor.)
