One reason our grandparents were better than us is because they didn't solely rely on visual stimulation to be entertained. Now it's camera phones, YouTube vids and MySpace pics, and I can't imagine what it was like to listen to radio soap operas like they used to (except for This American Life, which is perfect).
Nevertheless, this YouTube audio clip of Tara Reid belting out "Total Eclipse of the Heart" can be entertaining. The slurring and the tone deaf, high notes are already there, you just need to use your imagination to create her scant outfit, swaying stance and the disgusted grimaces on people's faces as they realize that someone singing really poorly is only funny for the first 15 seconds.
i think i'm bleeding from my ears...
What I would love, love to see is Tara getting into the whole thing. Can you imagine her, one hand holding the mic and another waving and clutching with emotion, eyes squeezed shut, upper lip raising up and the tongue sticking out against her teeth at the "th" sounds of "then," and the head jerking from side to side? That would be something special.
i can't even count the many reasons i love you cord, but you liking This American Life has just catapulted you up my list of favorite people.
From the way she slurred the words, it sounds like she's drunk again, like she has almost always been before.
