I feel so sorry for the engeneers that worked that day, isnt makeing an employee cut a song like that a crime against humanity, or at least crual and unusual punishment.

There's nothing wrong with that. There are plenty of worse songs on iTMS. It's all a matter of taste.

The kid's funny. Give him a little credit for actually wooing thousands of not millions around the globe.

i'd rather listen to him than any of clay aiken's crap.

Agreed Brad. iTMS should be about people who want to sell music. If William Hung has a product that people will buy he needs an opportunity to sell his wares.

I don't mind this at all.
He's a mod so he has a few extra vBulletin privileges. That doesn't mean he should stop posting or should start acting like Digital Jesus.

America deserves this. We have brought it upon ourselves. I think it's funny that he's actually on iTMS, but it's also kinda scary that he's actually on iTMS.

You people DO realize that he's simply this month's Budweiser frogs, Clara Peller, animated dancing baby, "Baby on Board" sign, etc.

In a couple of months he'll be long forgotten and some of you will cringe that you gave him a moment's thought.



He's just as lame as other mainstream pop acts, except the one thing he's got going for him - bless his heart - is that he knows he sucks. Britney and the rest have no clue (or, at least, letting on that they do).

It's not that funny, and tires after about 20 seconds. This is the kind of lame idiocy that "wacky morning zoo" radio shows all over America play, ad nauseum, and sit and fake laugh over, between giving away Ted Nugent/Molly Hatchet concert tickets.

"Hey, this is Scott Rocket and The Bammer, rockin' your morning drive on ROX 104.5...we've got this HILARIOUS CD of this poor guy from 'American Idol' who can't sing...hahahahahahahaha...listen...hahahaha...and now for some traffic, right after J. Geils! Hahahaha...".



Deliver me, please.

So True, yet I am getting one of his songs (only because it is free from Pepsi) I do think it is funny, hence the purchase

Well, I'd bet my right nut that you don't have a big enough left nut to actually go up in front of that many people to show us just what that left nut contains.



Let him enjoy his 15 minutes and cash a few cheques. I say good for him.

This coming from someone who proclaims his love for the most derivative band in history in his username

He sucks but he's having fun. Give him a break. Sure, he's delusional, but that never stopped anyone before....

In fact, going along with what murbot said, I've noticed more appreciation for people who get up on stage and let it all hang out, even if they aren't all that good. I think that's as it should be. If you're a performer, there should be a performance. If you're scared and holding back you're not performing well, and people notice.

Give the guy credit for stepping into the spotlight and for being able to laugh at himself. Neither of those is at all easy to do.

From what I hear, he's not delusional. His caricature is mostly an act and he's laughing all the way to the bank.

Hey, whatever works. I have no problems with this at all.

So my question to you all is:

Would you mock/laugh/look down on him as much as you do if he were white caucasian?

EDIT: On second though, he wouldn't even be doing this if he was white. It's like the whole asian-karaoke thing I think. A white guy doing this wouldn't be as "cute" or whatever. heh Take that however you want I guess...

He could sell a ton of Karaoke machines. Dude is gonna make a mint.

The guy's race/ethnicity never occured to me until this post actually.

I think his accent has a lot to do with it... but more importantly, it was how earnest he was in his initial appearance on Amelican Idor... *cough*... American Idol. I don't think anyone should perpetuate untrue stereotypes, but this guy fits the stereotype for an Asian college student so perfectly that it's pretty funny.

Besides, although we think his singing is awful, I think a lot of us here look down on the people who enjoy his singing, rather than William himself. Even though he's a terrible singer, I think it's amazing that he's managed to do so well with so little talent. Definitely shows his resourcefulness.

Yes, I most certainly would. I do it all the time: Justin Timberlake, Eminem, Michael Jackson, etc.

I doubt anyone here even considered ethnicity until you - in a move straight from the AppleOutsider playbook, section 14 - brought it up. Nice work!
post #28 of 44
I couldn't care less that he is putting out music. I just hope he hasn't been bamboozled into a record contract that he's got no business being in. Those things can be vicious. If he's just putting out digital tunes, I'd imagine the costs will be significantly less and he won't be bleeding money too badly.

scates was being facetious. He was saying that you did the typical AO thing of bringing race/ethnicity when it really isn't relevant - something common in AO. A playbook is just a reference to sports and typical plays a team runs.

What torifile said. All in good fun, stevegongrui. I wasn't trying to come across jerky, just jabbing you a bit (and taking a much-deserved shot at AO).

Ok, Cool.

Well I tend to bring ethnicity into lots of things because I'm rather intrigued by such issues, myself being Chinese and having grown up in Italy and now studying in the US.

His race *is* relevant.

His FOBbishness is what makes him so charming. But like I said, there's a high chance of it being an exaggerated portrayal on his own part. I don't know. The dude's a genius.



stevegongrui, I don't think you understand this is exactly what William Hung wants. He wants you to laugh at him. He wants you to think his music is so hilariously bad that you might buy it just to laugh at.

After hearing these cuts, i am thinking of produsing a record, the only 2 problems:

2: how to tweak a noise gate to filter out the running water
