Some friends to put it together, it's WAY better than the one currently in first place.

I hate choirs. In particular these 3 specific types:

School Choir

Mandatory in Grades 1-6, I remember being terrified to get my vocal inabilities
appraised by my music teacher, as even had to in an intimidating (for a 6 year-old)
'audition' singing a scale solo. Yikes. Luckily I was able to just mouth the words for
the next few years, going to annual competitions at Pantages or the Concert Hall
where my school would land its Honourable Mention (at best). By Grade 5 I figured
out that choir wasn't truly mandatory, as a the threatened other option-a 'Self-Directed
Learning Project'-which sounded suspiciously a lot like Homework, turned out to be
3 or 4 (wise) slackers slacking it out in an empty classroom. Was so much better off!
Choir only appeared to get worse in later years, peaking out with the always abhorrent
Vocal Jazz combo in high school.

Boys Choir

These ones always freaked me out a bit. Like what boy would willingly get involved
with this? I guess practically no boy, just the ones with especially cruel parents.

Miners/'Men of the Deeps' Choir

Nothing against these guys personally, just too gimmicky for my tastes, with the helmets
and all. Kudos that dudes with Black Lung could still belt it out though.

*ONE EXCEPTION would be the more raucous Gospel Choirs, though I have yet to ever
personally take one in, they seem like actually a good time.

TV Times

GREAT times for TV these days! What's on these days:




On top of the usuals like Parks and Rec (breakthrough season), 30 Rock (mostly consistent),
and the new-ish Caprica (no BSG, but not bad) these are some very good TV Times.

Dark Times for the Raptors indeed, but the annual St Patrick's Day Massacre
approaches, which in the past has seen dear friend Jack Armstrong perhaps
indulge in a bit of pregame Half and halfs?

I love Gaga and Jonas Ã…kerlund but what's with all the Tarantino homage-ing? Is that
just meta?
