Women who shop at a place called the Dress BARN. Seriously, what overweight woman goes into a place named after dwelling of large, smelly animals?

And how the hell have their sales INCREASED?

People are eating more Taco Bell and sitting in front of the TV longer.

So I read this article in Vanity Fair about Judy Garland's comeback 1961 concert at Carnegie Hall, and how it was widely held to be one of the greatest concerts EVAR, and thus my interest was piqued.

Needless to say, American standards aren't usually too near and dear to my heart, but I thought I'd give this a shake anyway, since EVERYTHING I could find about it was so across-the-boards laudatory. I looked up the concert on YouTube and…

… I don't get it.

The sound of her voice is unappealing, she slurs over fast passages, her intonation is unsteady, and after any modulation it sounds like the rug has been pulled out from under her. The expressivity of the songs is flattened by an overall hamishness and lack of restraint.

Now there have been things I've listened to because they were "good for me", even though I think that's an awful position for any form of art to be in. I can appreciate "Kind of Blue" intermittently, even if I'm not completely on its wavelength. "Judy at Carnegie Hall" at times doesn't even seem to meet the standards of competency.

What am I missing?

I could say the same for a lot of celebs who have their own reality shows. Do we really freaking care about rapper X's or Hollywood Starlet Y's wedding plans, home renos, etc?
