The Sing-Off!

Filed under: FYI — Alisa Hathaway @ 4:05 am

So, let’s be honest with ourselves here and now. I’m total shit at reviewing anything. I’m not very critical of music, movies, or televisions shows because I am easily pleased and enjoy most pop culture. Sure, I’m culturally literate and can usually distinguish garbage from quality entertainment; but at the same time, I love garbage for its kitsch, for what it tells us about the average American, and for its manipulation of the public through the most basic forms of entertainment. (That’s not to say I love Salinger’s Nine Stories in the same way I love watching The Cake Boss, but I think you understand my meaning.)

That being said, let’s point out what I may actually be good at doing, and that is bringing things that catch my eye to the attention of others, even if it’s simply because I won’t shut up about it. And that’s really all good communication is.

So what’s my point? If you didn’t already hear about NBC’s The Sing-Off, you probably should.
