Armoth, if you had not realized before now that the JO blogosphere is horribly toxic (and even the few exceptions like Hirhurim and c-c get enough comments from the other "name" bloggers that I find reading them easier to avoid), I guess you have now.

It's depressing. Very. [Frown]


But how cool of you guys to do an impromptu performance like that! [Big Grin]

Armoth, I have a friend who interns with the Daily Show. I have no idea what kind of pull she has, if any (intern and all that), but I can ask her to do what she can if that's something you're interested in. I know Hanukkah is just about over, and it won't be quite so topical soon, but let me know your thoughts.

We're pretty giddy as a group now...

We were at dinner and some girl had a birthday and waiters came out to sing happy birthday and we kinda took over - 10 of us sang happy birthday in full harmony...It was really really fun.

I have never ever wished I lived in NYC before.

Even the year I did. [Wink]

I really still don't. (The cold winters would probably kill me -- possibly literally.) But y'know, a quick transporter trip over for an evening. [Big Grin]

Heh. I thought about pointing that out, but odds were they're coming where the religious Jews are. [Wink] Highest concentrations are L.A. [Big Grin]

Someone translated the lyrics into Hebrew! [Big Grin]

I'm not sure which is funnier, that the various choices about when to translate conceptually and when word-by-word seem to consistently go with the longer option in almost every case, or that "ay-ho" and "ay ay ay" were the best she could get to translating those bits. [Wink]

Overall, a pretty good translation, though.

Ugh. We just prank called by a guy offering us to do the bar mitzvah of his son and open for Justin Bieber. Apparently Michelle Obama was gonna be in attendance...we were jumping up and down, checking out Bieber's rider...until we realized...way too good to be true.

In retrospect, he did confuse his kid's name Troy or Kyle, secret service, riders...pier 60...kinda dangerous...

here is his number, we googled it, see what you find: 216-785-9324

3 million and rising. Congratz. BTW, my 6 year old son has showed it to all his friends. He also read the lyrics with me so he could understand the song.

I know very little about Jewish Holidays, and so this prompted some wiki-study and discussion. Very cool!

Our family is a big fan.

My 13 year old asked a lot of questions the other day about Hanukkah, so we discussed it and I showed her your video. Nice teaching tool, and fun to watch!

She then asked why you were not on the Sing Off, because it is her favorite show right now. [Smile]

You know I was worried for a minute there after first watching that it wouldn't sound as well without the music in the background but after seeing the street performance and similar I am glad and relieved to say you sound just as well or better.

Thanks Blayne. (and everybody else)

The song is actually acapella. There is no music in the background. All those sounds were made with our voices. (sometimes in the live performances you can hear Ari, the redhead who sings "and the great menora" do the synth.

That's the cool thing. All those sounds you thought were instruments were actually being made by mouths.

Here is how it's done. If you watch through the end of the song, he shows you a little of what he's doing.

A better question: why on Earth should anybody who isn't you or JB care about what your post from nearly a year ago said, given that you decided to complain about it after all this time?

Shocking speculation: it involved Lisa, Judaism, Israel, or some blend of the three and was deemed offensive enough to warrant removal. I don't know where I come up with something crazy like that.

But that's just guessing-I don't actually know. Another good question: why should anyone believe you're doing anything but spitefully stirring up trouble by complaining about a post moderation nearly a year after the fact?

Sheesh.

I wasn't asking about the abstract, I was asking about this particular case. 'Care about injustice!' is a suitably vague, grandiose statement that no one can argue against it-you don't even have to prove the elements within it (which, notably, you haven't).

Another thing: when one person, known for screwing with the community at large and individuals within it, does something that smacks of manipulation, people should suspect manipulation.

Do you have any evidence AOS's post did not violate the TOS? Or that my removing it was too harsh a response?

Yes it is-you gave an example of injustice (according to you), and said everyone should care about it because it was an injustice.

Really, Dobbie.
