|SNL: Amazing Brass Balls.

I can't believe they just played the unedited SNL where Ashley Simpson's lip-synching snafu caused her to do a little dance and walk off the stage.
Note to self: When writing dated skits like the Bush/Kerry debates, and including forgettable moments like the Ashley Simpson Fubar Lip-Synch, such episodes hold almost zero replay value, and they're not the best shows to re-run. An edited show would be a much better option.
You know what, tho? That clip is still making the rounds of the internet. Apparently it's one of the "great moments of 2004" when they do those yearly recap shows. This is what our culture has been reduced to. We're no Roman Empire.
As long as the faux pas does not happen to us, then we love love love to watch.
yeah I saw that too and laughed louder the second time. I didnt realize the band just kept playign afterwards too. She so sucks LOL.
The lack of a live performance bothers me from these performers.
Aretha Franklin does a horrible job at lip synching the National Anthem. I've witnessed this on television at least twice. One time, it was a Tiger home opener . . . the other time, it was a Pistons game, probably the Finals.
People bought Whitney Houston's recording of the National Anthem from her Super Bowl appearance because apparently, she went out there and banged out a hell of a good vocal . . . that was years ago, though . . .
Who wants a single of something even re-recorded earlier in the afternoon to play . . . what I mean is, if they're going on a live show, perform it live. Do not tape the vocals earlier in the day . . . do not use computers to synch up everything. I don't want to see someone who is on stage with everything pre-recorded unless it's electronic music.
Case in point: Most groups like Adult. or even the mainstream stuff . . . Moby . . . one cannot possibly play every single style of music in the song. The Adult. show I went to last year . . . Kuperus did her vocals live. They played some tracks as backup to live bass and live vocoders.
Then again, this is what appeals to a younger target market. They're not old enough to be able to see the wide range of music offered. However, there are some whip-smart kids out there, and God bless 'em for knowing the difference.
WHOAH. Thats a stereotype man. Like the Tween (8-12)group are the ones into that Pop Drivelno t teens or any other yougn market.
I don't follow what I said that would be a stereotype.
"Then again, this is what appeals to a younger target market. They're not old enough to be able to see the wide range of music offered."
I should have added, "most of the younger target market desires such music, and they generally, on average, do not comprehend the difference between Ashley Simpson and . . . "
I'll put it this way. Is it live, or is it Memorex?
The oddity of the Ashley Simpson SNL incident . . . the band chose to play live, I take it. Ashley appeared to be the one that chose to pre-record her vocals.
That seems bizarre, to me. For someone who performs as a single act, with an obviously-generated background of music . . . she had a live band, but she wasn't live.
I still pine for SCTV.
That show, I absolutely loved. To me, it blew Kids in the Hall out of the water.
Then, as I grew older, I realized what brilliance Kids was . . . . now it's a tie between both of those shows.

They just released SCTV on DVD. I noticed one on a shelf at a Best Buy.
