Part 1.5: Bubblegum Pop is Auditory Crack

I apologize for the delay in updating you all on my crackerjack investigative reporting on the dangers of bubblegum pop (BP).  Completing my homework takes priority over writing on WordPress.

But here’s the update…

Although Britney Spears’ song lyrics about wanting a man for Christmas were not appropriate for two dozen four-year-olds to sing in a Christmas program, the night was not as bad as I thought it would be.  Actually, Donovan’s class was the highlight of the program.  The audience was cheering so loudly at the performance that you could barely hear the song being piped in through the speakers.

I tried to take some still photographs while Tara videotaped everything.  Some of my pictures didn’t come out too great because of the poor lighting, but Tara did a good job capturing things on video.  Most of the video is zoomed in on Donovan, but you can see some of the other kids dancing and singing as well.  Tara and I are new to the digital age, so neither one of us ever used a videocamera before, but when I figure this thing out, I’ll be sure to upload the video here on the blog.

As for now, here are some pics that did come out okay.  Stay tuned for part two of the update…

Soulquarian Quote of the Day

"There is no hip hop manual for growing old...The 22-year-old college grad who used to love the Roots in 1994 never left. He’s just 40 now and has a wife and kids and doesn’t feel like spending all night at a club."
