So I'm talking to my buddy Lisa about criticism, about rejection, about how at some point you just have to (as poet Bill Corbett once told me) write your own damn book. And she started telling me about when she sang in a band and got some of the wierder critiques I've ever heard. Now, if you listen to the tracks on the linked MySpace page, you'll hear she has a lovely voice, truly, but some critic (male) heard the band and said she "sang like she had an angry vagina." WTF?!?
To which, I can only respond with the words of the immortal and wonderful Nathan and the Zydeco Cha-Chas:
Put a hump in your back
and jam right on.
Let the people know
you got it going on...
(Oh yeah, the entire song is also available on Rhapsody)
