  1. Wow. That may be the single lamest thing I’ve ever seen. Where do you find this stuff, Kevin?

    • Come on, it wasn’t that bad. 🙂

      I have an RSS feed set up for certain sites. I am committed to bringing you the latest in Civil War Memory – the good and the bad.

            • I’d tell you how I can tell and why I say it’s not rap. . .but it would be pointless and I’d likely end up offending you. 😀 Besides, this ain’t Musicology 101.

              • We should take up a collection so he can get some lessons with Chuck D and Flavor Flav. Yeah booooy.

              • Thanks, Michael. It’s pretty hard to offend me, especially in a discussion of music. I love just about every type of music but (1) the commercialized crap that passes as country nowadays and (2) rap. To me, it is just vocalization that is often very unwieldy and unmusical. At times, it can be used effectively – see the brief rap contained in the song “Rocky Ground” on Bruce Springsteen’s new record – but I’ve heard plenty of stuff that is proclaimed to be rap that sounds much worse that what that woman is doing in this video…

                But you’re right, this is not a music blog…

        Yeah it is that bad.

  2. I enjoyed it. Good use of the hoop skirt. “Both sides had big cannons”… priceless.

  3. Is this person famous in America? I assumed it was a comedian in drag, and the lameness was the joke?
