The H.A.R.M.S for one
These make me gag, especially when not done right. What makes me gag more than this? you ask. Well, i'll tell you, it really is only one thing...
I was just at a tournament in Las Vegas...and decided to watch Finals of DI...cause I love the event. I walk in, and see the following
1- You don't know me
3- Raisin in the Sun
Totally ok with me...stuff that i've never seen as a DI in 'You don't know me' and 'Raisin in the Sun'...which were...ok. (I say that almost tentatively). Then Sybill gets up there, and I liked her. She was good. Then Bums, my student, gets up there, and does an 'ok' job as well (but i'm harsh). Then the girl, #2, who was double entered came in and went up to perform. Judged asked her for the title and what she said almost made me throw up, or throw something at her...maybe my throw up. This is what happened: ::smile:: ::look to her friends that said, i know i'm totally gonna win:: EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE.
I literally dropped my pen and just...gawked. And not in a good way. So then I just kinda made a 'uh' noise, of shock. She did her piece, i was hoping it would be different from Blake...hoping...hoping...hoping...all hope lost. EXACT SAME!!! except for the fact that she was a girl, with a worse rendition of his performance. different answering machines...eh. So she comes up to me afterwards and starts to (Excuse my language) ***** about why I wasn't paying attention to her speech when everyone else was crying (everyone else being her friends that came in with her) and how rude i was to make that shocked face when she said the title. I said, i'm sorry, but i didn't know you were performing then too. She got pissed off and said, well thanks. I said, you're welcome. Oohhhhh, how bad I wanted to just make her look stupid for taking a piece only 3 months 'after' the national champion used it...argh. ok, i'm done. just needed to do that.
