GLEEful suspension of belief?

I can suspend my belief for the sake of entertainment.  I can suspend my belief for the sake of an argument, or for an intellectual exercise.   There are some demands on my ability to suspend belief, however, that just go too far.   From a very young age I was acutely aware when musicians in movies or on TV were faking it.  You know, when the conductor of the wedding band in the background of the shot is beating a tempo completely unrelated to the music you're hearing?

America's Got Talent, pt. 3

American may got talent... but they don't got us!  They didn’t show us! This is the final report on my experience auditioning for America's Got Talent... and I hate to to break it to you, but it's kind of anti-climactic.  My group moosebutter did in fact audition in front of the judges, on camera, for America’s Got Talent.  In Los Angeles, in May.

Inside View: America's Got Talent

I auditioned for America’s Got Talent three times this year.  With three different groups.  Each group had it’s own path to the contest, and each had a different result. So now I’m going to give you the raw, unadulterated, inside scoop on the whole process! [REDACTED]

TV Review: "Glee"

For those of us who were in show choir, chorus or band in high school, we can relate to the situations on "Glee" (which premiered this past week, and will start its regular season in the fall). As the daughter of a music teacher and a teacher myself, I strongly related to the politics and economics of arts programs depicted in the show. The acting and singing are good, and the writing is quite witty at times. The problem is that too many of the characters are clichéd, and the focus of the show is divided.
