Yo, Itz Milli Vanilli time

It'z a shame.

Quote:
The Frigid Fingers Were Live, but the Music Wasn’t
It was not precisely lip-synching, but pretty close.

Performing along to recordings of oneself is a venerable practice, and it is usually accompanied by a whiff of critical disapproval. Famous practitioners since the Milli Vanilli affair include Ashlee Simpson, caught doing it on “Saturday Night Live,” and Luciano Pavarotti, discovered lip-synching during a concert in Modena, Italy. More recently, Chinese organizers superimposed the voice of a sweeter-singing little girl on that of a 9-year-old performer featured at the opening ceremony of last summer’s Olympic Games.

In the case of the inauguration, the musicians argued that the magnitude of the occasion and the harsh weather made the dubbing necessary and that there was no shame in it.

I saw Yo Yo Ma at The Academy of Music in the early 90's. He's got the skills so I don't have any negative thoughts about the decision to have a recording used for broadcast purposes.

I'm sure a clean recording with none of the issues of live performance recordings made things a lot easier for the production guys too.

I am looking for consistency from the administration and the know-it-all folks here.

So far, politics as usual.

Just because they recorded that music you have come up to this conclusion? Wow, why don't you go and buy yourself some lottery tickets?

A cello does not hold tune in 30 degree temps, milfy. That, among other ergonomic reasons, is why you don't see cello players in the marching band.

Speaking of tuning, whose idea was it to use herald trumpets (the hateful bastards of the brass realm) in sub-freezing temperatures? My immediate impression, upon hearing the totally crappy fanfares, was that the performance of the Marine Corps Band had descended to the level of American Idol. Imagine my relief at seeing that the hateful bastard trumpets were wielded by some other guys in Alaska hats.

Note to innauguration planners: "herald trumpets suck. They are impossible to play in tune on Miami Beach in February and should NEVER be used in sub freezing temps at an event witnessed by millions around the world". Little trumpets don't look as good, but motherfuckers can play them when it's cold as a witch's titty.

Thank Dog Itzak, Yoyo, the Black guy and that hottie at the piano decided to use a recording made in conditions conducive to musical performance.

Hey Gerkebi, is it all right to eat the flower that you and Steph. sent Vickie? I am hungry and Vickie is asleep.
