As a teenager, I felt like I had been born in the wrong decade. Not longed for the likes of LL Cool J, Melrose Place and Hypercolor t-shirts, I was much more comfortable singing standards and watching Mel Brooks movies (not that either of those clarifies which decade I should have been born in; any era that wouldn't have involved be being 14 in 1992 would have been fine). But now, with the advent of YouTube and all its angsty theatre-geek teens lip-synching their little hearts out, I feel like I may have been born too early instead of too late. I would have rocked that mess when I was 14. And now I'm not 14. I'm 29. But since when can you not upload videos of yourself lip synching just because you were born in the 70s? Since never, says me. So today I uploaded a video to YouTube of me lip-synching. I tried to capture the nervousness I see in a lot of teenagers, and I tried to pick a song that, like, tells my story, you know*?
(For an even better example of why more non-14-year-olds should lyp-synch on YouTube, please please please click here).
*Those who know me know this is ironic.
