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

I think I have a better singing voice than that, and I suck balls at singing. This got a deal with a label?  :(
Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial increases in corpse production.

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

Cynicism is a blank check for failure.

It's a joke dub.
Im 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.

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."
