At first I was all, "Wow! That's impressive!"
Then I was like, "Well, hell."

You funny English types are alright.

You mean Hungary has talent but good nonetheless.
 
2013-04-25 08:35:41 AM  
That was good.

Nothing else to say.

So good I sent the link to a buddy.

It was ok. But dusty? Maybe if you're on your period.

If a broad can stiil get their period, it's not going to be dusty.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that you didn't watch it to the end.

That was mawkish and jejune to say the least... I thought Britain was known for more reserved and class acts.

...I'm glad I have tissues at my desk at work.  Geez, where'd all this dust come from?  Must be from construction somewhere nearby.

Yeah subby, It was right up there with figure skating and room makeovers.


A true "no closet can hold you" moment subby.

I thought it was pretty cool. Not dust inducing, but moving.
 
2013-04-25 11:16:33 AM  
Would have been better without that gawdawful music.  Totally distracting, I had to watch with the sound off.
 
2013-04-25 11:46:33 AM  
That was cool, but that audience sure gets teary-eyed at the drop of a hat.

Incredible, brought a tear to my eye.

Like "UP", it caught me at the right moment and struck a chord. Very well done.

You seem to be a nice person. I am sure people don;t say negative things about you behind your back.

How did they make the little girl? Is this one of those close to the camera / far from the camera sizing tricks?
 
2013-04-25 04:42:00 PM  
Wasn't there a group just like this one on America's Got Talent?

/Girlfriend made me watch the show
/No really
 
2013-04-25 04:57:32 PM  
Isn't this just a reboot act from the group that did a better job at it in Americas Got Talent a few years back?

nytmare: How did they make the little girl? Is this one of those close to the camera / far from the camera sizing tricks?


Yup.  They put the screen downstage, closest to the audience near the orchestra pit, and the light all the way upstage at the back.  The farther upstage you get, the bigger the shadow you project.  After that, it's just a question of being fastidious with your marks so the shadows line up right on the screen.

Fake.  The dude doesn't have a penis.

Hey guys, war and death and family are poignant, huh?  Our human brains sure respond to major stimuli the same way, huh? 


At what point do members of our species get to move the fark on without getting called assholes?  I'm loving the guy who responded, "You didn't watch til the end did you?"  The end is the worst part!

We got real problems, people.  This mawkish crap is as much a drug as anything else, tied together with a song hitting resonant frequencies that make humans cry.  You get that cry, a shot of oxytocin, and feel like you're a part of something larger.  It's an emotional microtransaction, paid for by ignoring how shiatty it is.  They were holding up a piece of cardboard shaped like a dead guy in front of a light!  What the fark?   

I'm looking forward to the shadow play about the soldier who doesn't die in a war, gets hooked on drugs to deal with his PTSD, abuses his family, and ends up committing suicide.   ("Too sad for me, thanks.  I don't like that depressing stuff."  <- Druggie talk)

All "art" is mawkish crap in someone's eyes. All fiction anything for that matter.

Your favorite movie? Meant to tell a story and invoke a response.

Guess what, your favorite works of fiction? FAKE. THEY DIDN'T ACTUALLY DO THE THINGS YOU SAW THEM DO. EMOTIONALY SHALLOW WHAGARBALGARBALGARBLE.

I'm a very emotional kind of guy, but in this case I have to agree. This was forced and trite. It's the same sort of fake emotional appeal as when reality shows start playing the sad electric piano. "Here's the part where you're supposed to feel sad."

Take away the musical cues and it loses a lot of its punch. Without the song, the audience wouldn't be half as maudlin by the end of it, I bet.
