So that song 'Smile (Though Your Heart is Breaking)' is amazing. And I was just listening to Judy Garland singing it, which I've had on Itunes ever since I went on a Judy Garland/Julie Andrews music kick. But anyway, it's a beautiful song, Donna Lynne even sang it at one of her hat shows (although I can't exactly remember the context), and I was contemplating using it as a back-up song to sing at my end-of-semester recital if my voice teacher decides not to let me sing Voi Che Sapete, which we started working on this week. So I went on youtube to see other people singing it. There's Judy Garland, who is classic and amazing:

Then Barbara Streisand sings it. Because hey, she's Babs, and she's fucking fierce.

Hell, even MICHAEL JACKSON spontaneously bursts into singing it once in a while:

Those are all well and good. But I don't think ANYTHING can make up for this TRAVESTY.

Yeah, bastardized and sung by Robert Downey Jr. I hate when youtube does things like this. I hate when SINGERS do things like this. It's just... bad. Like something that should have been playing in that shiteous movie 'Hackers'. gah. Stupid.

As Emily said: "but what do you want, he was on meth for like ever" I guess it MAKES SENSE at least.
This psychic keeps going on and on about how "ONLY ONE OF US WILL SURVIVE, it is a PROPHECY." And this one guy's dad just got killed by a falling rock and the psychic is like 'bwahahah, he's DEAD. only one will survive," so the guy goes "ok so DIE then!" so he shoots her with a laser, and she dies.

BUT THEN there was one other soldier standing with the woman, and the guy who killed her just sort of looks at him, awkwardly, and...basically, puts a bomb on the soldier's shirt, shrugs, says 'you heard the prophecy' and runs off.

AND THE SOLDIER JUST TAKES IT! And it is AMAZING. Pure and total crack.
