I'm Up For A Grammy Award!

Categories: Music

As you'll recall, I'm in TV on the Radio's video for Nine Types of Light.

I brilliantly played a hapless janitor, Carol Burnett-style, thanks to filmmakers Amy Davis and Jon Mortisugu, who cast me with a mop in mind and also nabbed Murray Hill to play the nightclub MC.

And it's up for the Grammy for Long Form Music Video of the year!

I need to start preparing my speech pronto -- after knocking off competitors like Beyoncé and the Foo Fighters, of course.

Not that it stands a chance of winning, but hon, you won't receive the award if it wins. . . .

Yes, dear, I know that. This was all in fun. I did a cameo in a long form video. Quite aware that they don't give the trophy to everyone in it. And by the way, it has at least a 20% chance of winning. Thank you.

Don't you love being called "hon" by a clueless jackass?  I'm sorry you had to subtract three minutes of your valuable vacation time in trying to penetrate the cement-filled skull of this fool who felt the need to try to "school you".  Deep breath....(as the hands involuntarily form into a neck-sized circle).....

But never mind that.....CONGRATS!!  That is fabulous and I hope you're properly thrilled.  And not to worry....if someone else gets the award, I'm fully prepared to pull a Kanye and hijack the ceremony, putting the award on the proper mantel for you.  "Yo, yo, yo, I'm really happy for you, and I'mma let you finish, but Michael Musto was one of the best janitors OF ALL TIME!! OF ALL TIME!"  That's what I'll say...

"The Little Janitor Goes to the Grammys"  "The Little Janitor Goes to Fire Island"  Everywhere he goes, people want him to clean up their messes but he dispenses sage advice instead.

maybe a series of children's books-"The Little Janitor"  I'd buy them.

There you go...another case of the Liberal Homosexual Left taking jobs away from poor American 13yr olds.

Thanks, Gregorama. Kanye himself will be there to pull a Kanye, so I'm not worried about that. But I'm pretty sure we won't need him at all. This little janitor is going all the way to the gold.

The aptly named Bitch Troll From Hell is not only a bitch troll from hell, but pretty dumb to take things so literally and chime in with a stupid nyah-nyah comment like that. Congrats on being in one of the five best long videos of the year!!

Congratulations and I'm not complaining, but what the fuck happened to your vacation?

Vacationing, you write more -- and funnier -- than David Sedaris in The New Yorker!

If they were smart they would have you host the Grammys. It would raise the level of entertainment considerably.
