my son's chorus sang "Jabberwocky" (subtitle: I'm embarrassed that the Dixie... by canaveralgumby on 25 April 2003 6:57pm
 
...Chicks have a recording contract)

Yes, last night, the Cocoa Beach HS chorus sang, among other things, a musical interpretation of the poem "Jabberwocky." The program said the composer's name is Jennings. They even put a little illustration of the Jabberwock on the back of the program, with a little Michael Palin, I mean, a little man with a sword trying to fight it.

And then several seniors sang solo opera pieces, and the teacher announced that they have won scholarships to college for their singing. That's their singing, and NOT their breasts and lip-syncing.

I would like to think that people who like Michael Palin and his work respect the opinions of others in the world and do not take cheap shots at those people that we do not agree with. Feelings like this can escalate into hate. Just look at the holocaust for example. Please keep this in mind...

Whether you like the Dixie Chicks or not, isn't the whole thing with them commenting about George Dubya a bit of a storm in a tea cup?

I mean really, can't the girls have their own opinion? The poor things are getting DEATH threats for goodness sakes! Lordy me!

Eddie Vedder does the same thing and everyone tells him he's a visionary! Man of the people!

I don't think canavaralgumby was slighting the Dixie Chicks because of the whole Georgie Boy incident.....I think that he(?) is slighting them because she(?) thinks that they lack talent.
Canavaralgumby, those girls did not get where they are by lipsincing and having big....you knows.... One of them happens to be the daughter of a record company exec! Actually, I like them too, but you're entitled to your opinion and I know that you weren't referring to just the Dixie Chicks, but the whole music industry monster. (Speaking as a person that actually persued her singing dreams in L.A., made a demo, and ended up losing to a Barbi, I'm right there with you). I think Britany might have been a better choice for subject (I think she's absolutley foul!). AND I like your story about the performance of your sons chorus.

Thanks for the responses - I kind of thought this post was just my own mental masturbation! I bet that last word gets edited, even though Graham Chapman said it in the "Summarize Proust" sketch :^)

The Dixie Chicks. I really don't know much about them, as I don't listen to country music, or country-pop, or whatever it is. They do a cover version of "Landslide" (Fleetwood Mac) that is absolutely irritating. They were invited to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl, and clearly LIP-SYNCed it. Of all the recording artists who could have been given the honor... No Doubt and Sting played totally live at half-time. Right after Shania Twain LIP-SYNCed her country-pop number.

I guess the country fans have more faith in their favorite artists' abilities than the artists do.

And I don't care what they have to say about the war. Or what Madonna, or Susan Sarandon have to say. Or whether John Lennon thought the Beatles were more popular than Jesus. Whatever. But what do I know, I listen to Yes. ATTACK AWAY!

Cori,
I listen to YES as well.
And ELO... what does that mean..?
and one of my all time favorite recordings of all time?
Rocket to Russia by the Ramones.
What would Madonna think of that?

C-
I'll only attack if you call me a country music fan! I actually like Electroclash, House, 80's Synthpop, some Industrial and Electro. I LIKE the Dixie Chicks, not a fan (I don't even own one of their albumns). That means that if they came on the radio, I wouldn't change the station, but I also wouldn't stop on them if I was 'seeking' channels either(does that make sense?). I'm sorry that I misunderstood where you were coming from and that you indeed WERE attacking the Dixie Chicks specifically. I'm NOT sorry that you were able to state your feelings on the matter. Diversity is a wonderful thing! And don't ever call me a country music fan again >;-)

P.S. That wasn't really a reply to Canaveralgumby's post back there when I wondered why the D.C's got slammed for their comments - it was just me waffling out loud! :-D
