For someone who never did musicals before, Carrie Underwood is doing a fucking good job. Give her a shot.
Excuse me. I am giving her a shot.
I said “I really do like her though. She sings the score pretty well. I’m excited and interested to see it tomorrow night. “
I was just pointing out on a technique level that it doesn’t sound too great. That’s just me being picky and probably picking things up the normal person doesn’t hear. Please don’t come accusing me saying I’m not giving her a shot.
Carrie Underwoods Belt when she’s singing ‘The Sound of Music’ sounds so tight to me. On the phrase “my heart will be blessed” and on the word “blessed”. Not good. Its like I can feel her neck muscles and throat clenching. Sweetie. Give a big ol’ smile, let the jaw shift back into the natural place on where it goes when you smile, put the tongue at the bottom of your teeth, show some front teeth, use those legs, slightly shift the placement a little higher (I’d say a little more forehead/right where your nose starts) from where it is now, use a little less energy, and let the breath do the work for you. AND not every single not needs vibrato! NO! I feel like she thinks “oh musical theatre. VIBRATO! all the time!” no. Let it naturally come in dear. It will. Put it where it makes sense. I really do like her though. She sings the score pretty well. I’m excited and interested to see it tomorrow night.
Can we just take a moment and listen. Oh my GOD. Isn’t she just amazing?! Her Belt. I can not even describe. It’s perfect. The emotion. Dead on. I love her. She just keeps getting better. I remember the night I saw her in Les Miz. I was blown away. A truly amazing actress who is wonderful in everything she does. Go Betsy Morgan!
I feel like the new Sound of Music recording for The Sound of Music Live! on NBC is really flat. Thankfully it isn’t auto-tuned too much. But I just feel it’s a little flat and slightly dead. Anyone else agree?
Why is it when I’m sick I crave food? Right now I could for some fresh warm apple pie. Or some tofu Pad Thai or Pad Se Ew. Or even a bottle of Coke. Mmmm. But Mexican food sounds really good tooooo. Like beans and rice. Yum. I still have a fever of 102 and feel like shit. If anyone wants to bring me any of these foods items I’d love you.
Update. I’m sick. My throat is on fire. I’m dizzy as can be. I want to throw up. Brita is hung over and throwing up at home. We go into at the same time today. It’s a Sunday. That means church people and church rushes. All I can say is watch out. And prepare for the worst.
My dad needed a laundry basket and I had one in my room that had dirty clothes in it that I was planning to wash tonight. I come home from work and all the clothes that were in it are dumped all over my bed practically under my sheets, and all over my room. Fucking douche. I want to take shitty toilet paper and shove it under his pillow and in his bed. I am so mad. So fucking rude.
