You know I'm going to be utterly unable to not click that link when I get home.

And you know that revenge rides a slow horse.
Don't tell me what to fucking do.  In exchange, I will not tell you what to fucking do.  Note that mocking each other's actions is still permissable under this system.

I think I have a better singing voice than that, and I suck balls at singing. This got a deal with a label?  :(

Apparently it also helps if you look like a drunk elf from Arkansas.

It's a joke dub.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”
― Assata Shaku

Yes.

However, with that said, every time I've ever heard her sing on a live broadcast, she almost always drops notes, sings flat and has a thin, anemic voice. Either she's auto-tuned (or pro-tooled or whatever) in the studio or she does a thousand takes per song (or both) because her live singing is deeply underwhelming.

Step-Mang #4 introduced me to 'Shreds' on Youtube. We laughed our asses off watching these but when we pulled up the Taylor Swift dub we were like 'Huh? I can't really notice much of a difference."
