It's because Americans worship celebrities and when one of their gods does something they have to gossip about it for a week.
Does anyone know anyone who was in the studio audience when this happened? It was pretty quiet, but I assume there would have been some kind of reaction. I'm also curious as to what transpired during the impromptu commercial break.
here's the word from a friend of mine who was at the show, and got it straight from the director, beth mccarthy, who she was a guest of:
ashlee can't sing. she tried all day friday, but was whining to her voice coach. they decided to leave her mike on so she could sing along to the track, but after the first line or two of the first song, turned her off cause she was awful.
so, as of the first song, all the mikes were off.
now, they had the wrong song queued up for the second song, obviously. it really was the drummer's fault. apparently he was supposed to signal something or start in with some beat, and the one he did was for the first song. because he fucked up, the guy doing the tape hurried up and put the first song on, because that was what the drummer had signalled. when this got all fucked up, they did two things:
1. turned on all the mikes so the band could take over and start the real song. which they didn't. have no idea why.
2. turned off the tape so the band could play the real song.
they were going to turn on ashlee's mike so she could sing the real song, but decided not to because the band was just playing the first song. the guys were smiling cause they were simply thinking "what a fucking clusterfuck".
beth mccarthy was also the director of the superbowl halftime show last year, so she's no stranger to ... malfunctions.
Breaking news: Kerry supporters write report on the survey they conducted that shows Republicans are clueless.
So what happened to Ashlee on SNL?
All the “words” explaining the numbers is HIGHLY questionable, as most people do not understand what the numbers are saying. The writers are quite clearly “against” Bush and "for" Kerry, and it really shows in the conclusions. Basically, if you do read the linkage read it for good numbers, but all the text and conclusions is propaganda (that’s such a great word!).
Your logic is skewed, Sandy. Are you say these 1,000+ fine young people have died in Iraq for no reason? Have you forgotten the 3,000+ people the terrorists killed in the attacks on the United States? Did you not read or have you not heard that the 9-11 report did indeed tie Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda together.
Because they don't exist.
I'd bet many, like me, think there's probably some indirect link/support
Show me a quote saying "Iraq/Saddam committed 9/11" from Bush or Cheney.
Who said Saddam was behind 9/11? Where do you get this stuff?
Amazingly, a recent CNN/USA Today poll showed 62% of Republicans still believe Iraq was behind 9/11. This is after a flood of contrary evidence and Duelfer's report.
Bush is carrying the battle to them
that the majority of them happened to be Saudi nationals isn't really the point.
I don't think HL1 had deathmatch right out of the original box either...
that's where i'll disagree 100%. if you have a religious belief, a true and real one, then that should be the most important thing in your life.
yes!, i just don't like absolutes like that. to say "*everyone* does or thinks this or that" is always a statement that falls flat.
but just because he says something that goes against your beliefs, or something that you find incredulous, doesn't mean he's trolling.
Kerry (and others) blatantly advocate against the teachings of the Catholic church.
he obviously does not follow or believe in them (at least not all of them) - so therefore he isn't truly catholic, is he?
yep. that is no exaggeration. every last person on planet earth does it. all of them.
and calling warhawk a troll is just so far away from any conceivable reality that you sound like a troll just by accusing him of it.
However, even though we have these differences of opinions we still call ourselves Lutheran. I think it is the same with Kerry.
Well, then you really aren't a Catholic, are you?
Here's an interesting article that's related to the subject. It gives a bit more insight into what I'm talking about. It's long but if you have the time, wade through it.
Kerry just says he's a Christian and doesn't follow the teachings of his church. He's a hypocrite, just like most "Catholic" democrats in politics today.
