    Yup.
    I don't know why that's sad. They're making a better profit than any stock you can name. I mean yeah, to pay somebody to make a song and video for your untalented kid does smack a bit of child beauty pageants, but I don't think it's exploitative. It worked out just fine for them. I think that's more worthy of a $2,000 investment than commemorative plates or fake ass gold coins or Pokemon crap. Everyone has their own interest to spend their money on.

    Oh, from a capitalist perspective, sure it makes sense. I approve of their investment.
    But from a perspective of "there are people starving in Africa, etc." it seems a bit stupid. There are many better uses for such a sum of money than making a badly-autotuned Sesame Street's Rejects pop song.

    Exactly.

    And I hate how people have beat up on HER - a mere child - and not given her parents a nasty look for doing that girl an extremely poor turn.

    That's not true, my eldest will be 16 in, like 3 weeks.

    Oh, geez, don't pull the starving people in Africa thing, or I'll have to ask you why you are wasting your time posting on this forum when you could be ladling out food to homeless people in soup kitchens...

    Time spent on this forum is time spent from a place of pure benevolence in our hearts. We study typology systems and interact with one another on a psychological basis so that we understand other people and, ideally, so that we can apply that knowledge for a greater understanding of the people around us and for the betterment of our world.

    I dunno why people gotta hate so much.

    It's not every day a well-trained howler monkey makes it to 700,000 views on youtube...let alone creates a song at all.

    I think we should be applauding humanity and it's achievement in this very important field. Thinks of where we can go! What we can do!

    Wait...too much?

    In all seriousness, I get thoroughly annoyed with these kids that produce sub-par bullshit like this and everyone turns the other cheek and smiles with the "Well, he/she is only X years old!" excuse. What does that matter at all if it's crap? My opinion wouldn't be any different had this song of been sung acapella by a new born baby old enough to only have their act calculated using the seconds hand on a watch. It's still shit. Any child with fully functional vocal chords in theory has the ability to sing, but that doesn't mean they all should be doing it.

    I'm sick of the media trying to convince me that mediocrity is so much more extraordinary because said person has overcome so ridiculous adversity, while in the mean time giving me poop on a silver platter and serving it at room temperature. I don't care if you've got one eyeball, are in pre-school, or have an inflamed pancreas. If it sucks, it sucks, regardless of any outside factors.

    I guess I'm looking it more as a path someone is following to reach an end goal, a perspective I've been forced to develop as a parent. Yeah, objectively, something my kid had produced in second grade might suck by adult standards, but realistically it is one rung on a ladder to someplace better, and just a step in a long-term process meant to lead someplace good. I could tell my son in seventh grade orchestra that he was playing well (because he was playing above par for his age) even if it sucked on a professional level; and now he's gotten much better, and plays well for a tenth grader... but he's still not a professional. It's all relative. In terms of judging where someone is at in their growth scale, it's a valid and useful assessment....just as it's valid to you to say, "Looked at out of context, just compared to any other art creation in existence, it's pretty sucky."

    Yeah, it's not a Wagner opera; and it's not even Katy Perry, and it's actually not even New Kids level. All true. But considering that most 13-year-olds don't even do this, compared to other 13-year-old's, it's a start.

    I loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooove Friday! Maybe not in a Mozart/Bob Dyllan type of way, and more of a Will Ferrell type of way, but I love it nonetheless!
    Chimera of Filth

    A gruesome beast with dripping flesh
    Clings to me as a sick fixture
    My throbbing heart it gnawed apart
    It stalks and hunts me through mirrors
