Mikey1969: Lumbar Puncture: Mikey1969: Snapper Carr: [YouTube video: Passionate Sign Language Interpreter At Rock Gig]

Same person I think.  Gotta appreciate ASL interpreters who channel the music's energy as well as the lyrics

Does she just play air guitar and air drums and mime cookie monster screams? I mean, it's cool to watch, and I love her enthusiasm, but does she sign?

She was. The nuance might've been lost on you enjoying her enthusiasm for signing the other sounds, but she was both interpreting in ASL the lyrics of the song Ruin and the lead singer pumping up the crowd.

Also signing can get loud when agitated because just like with this interpreter being enthusiastic for ASL it adds emphasis to the words being expressed like we do with shouting. This can also change the meaning of some words, for example if I put my hands in an upside down triangle I would be signing vagina. If I aggressively smacked my hands a few times the same way at you, I'd be calling you a word that would get filtered.

She was definitely awesome. And yeah, I was pretty distracted just watching her get into it.

Yeah, I've heard some agitated conversations between non-hearing people.


I worked security for a hotel while in college. I did once have to ask a convention for the deaf to keep the noise down as they were in the inside recreation area next to rooms.

One guy at a group I said this to replied with "The hearing people will just have to deal with it" and turned back to talking loudly to his friends. When he turned away, I said "What an asshole."

And he immediately turned back to look at me. I pointed at him and said "You're not even farking deaf! You're now responsible for the entire convention. Any more noise complaints and you're the one getting tossed out." His friends caught enough of it to catch on and started laughing at him.
