"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

Ashlee Simpson Booed at Orange Bowl

The Oklahoma Sooners apparently weren't the only ones deserving of boos at last night's Orange Bowl fiasco. For some reason, Ashlee Simpson decided to actually 'sing' her own vocals during the half-time show. The result of this bold move? A chorus of well-deserved boos. As Jon Stewart so aptly put it in his short coverage of the event on The Daily Show, these are the same football fans who'll cheer for an injury. We're not exactly talking Pavorotti fans here. IFILM has posted a short clip on their website where you can catch the last bit of her performance and the reaction that followed.

I've got to say I'm actually fairly impressed in a way. I've seen a lot of half-time shows in my day and they've all sucked. To stand out in that crowd of suckage is actually an impressive feat when you really think about it.
