Susan Boyle Sings Memory: Delivers the Performance of Her Life

Susan Boyle, Britain’s Got Talent sensation, delivered the performance of her life in the semi-finals on Sunday 24th May 2009.  She sang Memory from the musical Cats, made famous by Elaine Paige.  Susan won the viewers vote for this heat and will now compete in the finals on Saturday 30th, May 2009.

Even the always ever-so snarky Gawker website had this to say about Susan Boyle today:

At this point, she could cover Sid Vicious covering Sinatra’s My Way, and we’d be there with a YouTube embed, ready to lap it up.  And that’s kind of okay.  Susan Boyle’s one of the few things keeping us all sincere.  What I mean by that is: if you don’t like Susan Boyle, you can go die.  This bitch’s on wheels, and kiss, no kiss, nothing’s getting in her path to the top.  Nothing.”

As the Mind Fades Away: Remember When

As the Mind Fades Away: Remember When

Remember When was the first film directed by Jason Ramsey, a film that was produced on a bare-bones budget of only 25 dollars. This sadly tender short film is about a 30-year-old man who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, almost the youngest on record (the youngest is said to be a 29-year-old). Remember When tells the story of a spouse trying to cope with her young husband’s loss of mind and spirit, while still trying to relish the fleeting moments of clarity that they are able to share together. In a way, the film pays tribute both to those who suffer from Alzheimer’s and to those who lovingly stick with them.
