It is always easier to write about the weaker areas than to praise the strong parts. I am sure it was AWESOME, even so!
Seeking: that they even got this off the ground is awesome. That it sounded great in places is incredible. Most people aren't pros & volunteered their services & that is just amazing.Ember: Wow indeed. ☺
I agree with what Seeking and Ember said--not to mention the time and effort of all the people behind the scenes (like the Mum's who drove all over the place). ;-)
Did you record any of it? Are you SHARING? :)
Bonnie: Yeah, lots of volunteers at every level.HEM: Our ABC owns the broadcasting rights. When I have dates I will assume it will also be available on~line & will let everyone know.
Have you ever watched the movie Ratatouille? (I had very low expectations for the film when it came out... I mean seriously? A cooking rat? *roll eyes* But it's really quite good. More than adequate;-}) Anyway, the critic is a great character and as I was reading through the second piece you linked to, I thought of his final speech. Here's the first part, I went and looked it up for you:"In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face is that, in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is more meaningful than our criticism designating it so."Really I can't imagine being so blithely caustic and condescending over the performance of such a gargantuan piece. But then again, there are few occupations I am less suited to than the job of critic ;-} heheheAs a mama, I can't imagine all the blood, sweat and tears this whole thing took out of you... getting Star to all the right places at the right times. Making sure she was slept up, well fed and well hydrated. Making sure she had the right pants!You're a good mama, girlie♥
Persuaded: I felt exactly the same about "Ratatouille"! It is a very honest description of a critic also.
Persuaded: You are so right. It is easy to mock. Not above it myself but this was hardly a disaster.Seeking: Great description of a critic. Glad the two of you shared.
