Ragin' Asian: Damn. La Triviata is no joke.


Meh.  I usually win at Triviata Pursuit.  My only weak spot is the sports questions.

"I stood up to sing because Lisette Oropesa is a musician I love very much and I happened to have learned this opera before," the 24-year-old student said.
Oropesa was at first surprised but soon smiled happily. When it was her turn to sing, she changed the lyrics of "lover" to "thank you".
Liu said he went to apologise to the singer after the concert as he felt his participation was "rude", according to the report.
Apparently accepting Liu's apology, Oropesa took photos with him and gave him her signature. Liu later posted the photos on Weibo.


Kind of bordering on the "Creepy" tag.

Parma is a cool city. Without it, what would people grind over their spaghetti?

So the guy sang from his chair during an encore, and Chinese media portray him as "saving the concert" ?

Damn, Mainland Chinese are arrogant motherfarkers.

No, but sometimes, they are being particularly ridiculous.

Not a fan of opera.  Her reaction, when he starts singing, is so gracious and adorable.

So...the guy says don't do this, it's rude, I'm no hero.  Then Fark gives a hero tag?

A hero tag?  Really?

1. He didn't "save the concert" because it was already over. This happened during the encore.

2. The singer was obviously planning to sing the part without a male counterpart - it wasn't like someone didn't show up to sing the evening.

3. How Farking presumptuous it is to start singing in the middle of someone else's concert. He's not a hero, he's a douche.

"But Liu did not think so. In a video uploaded last week, Liu urged internet users not to follow his example.
"Please don't interrupt singers when they are singing on stage. It's impolite behaviour," he said. "Don't imitate me and I will never do this again in future."
"It is definitely not something worthy of pride, nor something worthy of being advocated," Liu wrote on Weibo."

Hey is just a zealous fan. You are a douche
