Listening Post

Up until now, I've never been a big fan of Natasha Bedingfield -- and I certainly hadn't considered putting any of her stuff up here.

But I heard this song yesterday and was just blown away.

This is Soulmate.

Natasha Bedingfield -- Soulmate


Bill White said...

Chez, She was fantastic. I'm so sorry that she passed on to the Good Lord after bopping her head on that ski slope. It figures those dumb French morons couldn't save her. Besides nuclear energy, what good are they?
May Sweet Baby Jesus cradle this beauty in his strong arms.
Anyway, that Soulmate song speaks to me and Delores. Kyle says it's good for him and his friend Ben. I'm starting to think the worst with that boy.

Normally, I find humor related to a recent death so annoying, but...bravo, Bill. Bravo!

Bill White and Deacon Blue...


Natasha RICHARDSON was Liam Neeson's wife who died after hitting her head.

Natasha BEDINGFIELD is an entirely different, perfectly alive person.

"Natasha Jane Richardson (11 May 1963 – 18 March 2009) was an English stage and screen actress."

"Natasha Anne Bedingfield (born 26 November 1981) is a British pop singer and songwriter."

Um wrong Natasha, Bill.

Like we didn't know that.

See, Bill White is a satirical facade for whomever "Bill" really is...I was acknowledging his joke....which wouldn't be a JOKE if he was talking about Natasha Richardson for real.

We BOTH know it's a different Natasha.

The First Rule of Satire is you don't explain the joke.

The Second Rule of Satire is, you don't explain the fucking joke.

It's a very unfunny joke, entirely lame and elementary.

"Wow, like, I'm going to pretend this person is ANOTHER person! To add to my wittiness, I'll pretend I care about parts of each person as ONE PERSON! It's SO AWESOME!"

It also doesn't fit in with Bill White's persona because he's been perfectly capable of understanding issues far more complex than a simple last name in previous comments. Additionally, someone of Bill's persona would more than likely take offense at someone making this kind of mistake. In years past, you were only as good as your family name.

"Oh, you're ??????? Richardson's boy? Such an honest, trustworthy person. Come on in, tell me how he's been and what's going on in your family's life these days."

Really, the attempt at comedy here was just bad. It's not funny, not because one of the people is dead, just that mistaking someone for someone else when the text is right in front of them isn't funny, it just looks lazy, retarded, and (in the case of looking for comedy) cheap.

Normally, I wouldn't, VOTAR, and if Anon had focused on Bill alone in his comment, I would have happily kept my mouth shut. But I have an aversion to being labelled as stupid.

Still, all apologies for breaking the satire rule. I may not be stupid, but I will admit to being a partial douche for my actions.
