Is she even playing? Sounds more like she's just humming into the mouthpiece. Fun, tho. Especially with the sound turned off. And when she's doing the Han Solo vs the Stormtroopers imitation.

Yes, but the important question is where did she get that fabulous outfit?

Bonus points to anyone that can guess who I'm paraphrasing.

That was torture to my musical ear!

Is it all a joke or is she serious?

Posted by mj | October 15, 2007 7:58 PM

Dan, that sounds like something Simon Cowell (sp?) would say.

Oh, and you just HAD to remind me about the DISCO version of that song, didn't you. Hmph.

Posted by Paul | October 15, 2007 8:08 PM

I successfully masturbated to this.

Somebody shoot it

I watched this yesterday, and one of the people I was with (a horn player) pointed out that she seems to be a whole step off, consistent with someone who forgot that written horn lines must be transposed down a step to match the notation everybody else reads. So she learned it in the wrong key and then stuck to her guns throughout the whole performance.

The result, obviously, is pure magic.

Finally, someone who could really interpret that piece as John Williams really had it in his head. Thank you Stacy.

Dog-fuckingly horrible at playing trumpet she is.

Algernon to Lane in the first act of The Importance of Being Earnest.

Yeah. This made The Soup last week.

Maybe she thought she was loaded for bear with the questions and answers part of the competition so she let talent slide a little?

her dancing to the cantina theme was awesome

Posted by vooodooo84 | October 15, 2007 9:34 PM

she should pursue dancing, not music.

Posted by ellarosa | October 15, 2007 9:40 PM

That was truly awful.

Posted by Justin | October 15, 2007 9:48 PM

@15 - Sounds like Mr. Poe took care of that right before you...

Posted by Wowza | October 15, 2007 10:08 PM

2 weeks old

Posted by m | October 15, 2007 10:53 PM

Aw...2 weeks old? Christ, I guess that means it's not funny then.

Mr. Poe successfully masturbating? It reminds me of that end scene in Happiness--"I came! I came!"

Posted by p | October 15, 2007 11:11 PM

I just jacked off again. To these comments. Mmmmm....

Posted by Mr. Poe | October 15, 2007 11:22 PM

This hurt my soul.

Posted by Sam | October 15, 2007 11:45 PM

@28 - The video? Or Mr. Poe's repeated monkey spankage? You must be clear on these things, you know.

Posted by Wowza | October 15, 2007 11:56 PM

Damm..... she shattered one of my glass eyeballs and I lost a filling in a tooth. Dont play it again Stacy and you should consider going to a trade school.

Posted by Drew D | October 16, 2007 12:54 AM

I saw this the other day. That she's *completely* off key baffles me. I mean, don't these people have handlers? Didn't she run this past her high school band director? Her parents? Who allowed her to make a fool of herself like this? Where were here friends? I guess we'll never know. . .

At least we got to see her pretend her trumpet was a gun. That was special.

Off key, schmoff key. Dirk Bloharde has found a soul mate.

Posted by Fnarf | October 16, 2007 7:44 AM

She is still far more talented than Britney Spears.
Damn that was painful to watch, I cheated and skipped ahead after my ears started to bleed.

Posted by -B- | October 16, 2007 8:55 AM

This was actually from the 1990 or 1991 Miss Arizona pageant. All these years later, she's being publicly humiliated again. I love pageants!
