Thanks for that Ahriakin.
A friend of mine had his song kick off the show, while it was ‘playing loud as hell.’ Then the song also came on as legendary Tommy Tallarico walked up to the stage, then faded out for him to give his speech. No surprise that he’s so excited about it.
Check out his music here. http://www.schreckmusic.com

Yup I know Mr. Schreck a little through the forums there, seems to hate being though of as a large green pixel/cartoon character for some bizarre reason ;). Tommy’s kind of a force of nature. He did his own video for Eye Toy for the nomination process and it’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen, think the cop out of YMCA doing a dance along to a kiddies game.
