Because microblogging is extremely addictive. The following tweets were posted to my public Twitter account in the past twenty four hours (or the last time LoudTwitter updated, whichever is sooner):
  • 02:01 "You thought your middle school years were hard. Imagine if your government got together and decided you weren't cute."
  • 02:43 So Daniel Radcliffe is gonna be doing his nude/horse thing on Broadway. A part of me wants to go JUST to make the HP fangirls jealous...

Very true, so I was very surprised when that Herald Tribune International article went on and on about whether the girl who actually was filmed was upset that it wasn't her voice! All with the implication that she might not even have realised she was lip-synching (which you actually were able to see quite clearly while she sang... I thought she was doing it because she was nervous about singing live). They didn't much ask the girl who hadn't been cute enough, OR the older girl who had been perfect until the director decided he wanted a girl below ten years of age!!

And did you read about the famous ballerina who is now paralysed because one of her movements made her fall ten feet to the floor? For that Silk Road bit in the opening... and they're just sort of apologising... can't they at least try and send her to the best specialists to see if she might eventually learn to walk again... GAH!!

She didn't know, actually. (In a venue that big, your voice would probably echo around anyway when amplified. It was probably hard for her to tell.)

I personally think that it's on behalf of these two girls that people feel most outraged. It's one thing to tell a beautiful person that they're not good enough at something, another thing entirely to tell the most skilled person in the room that she's not pretty enough. Hence the quote from The Daily Show. ^_~

Ah, I didn't realise it was a quote from that show. I remember seeing Jon Stewart in the early 90s on a UK Stand up Comedy show, together with stand-ups from all kinds of English speaking nationalities (UK, US, Canada, Australia) - and they only had five minutes for their bit and he was memorable even then.... although I didn't remember the name but I recognised the face when he became famous ^^
