I know music vids are frowned upon but PLEASE let this stand...James Durbin

Last edited Fri Dec 26, 2014, 08:18 PM - Edit history (1)

My hero..My legend
James is an Aspy who also has tourettes....who killed it on American idol.

I thought he deserves a thread here.

One of my favorite Durbin songs




On edit...I horribly made my point.
So many in our society write off anyone we don't consider average or someone who fits in...we dismiss anyone who doesn't fit our mold of productive and conforming....far too often we marginalize those who make us uncomfortable...those who don't fit into our boxes.....James blows those molds away.

James faced us and blew us away with my favorite music genre...but much more importantly...he makes us face ourselves...our beliefs...our stupid preconcieved notions.

James changed everyone who understood what he was standing there doing...he proved himself and in doing so dared us to prove ourselves.
I LOVE James Durbin...he has more guts than anyone on this board...myself included

6. A case for this being political could be made

Aspies have very few advocates and need more. Good video BTW.

2. Slightly OT reply here...

Music vids are frowned upon? Why is that? I've posted a few over time, and no one has mentioned it to me. Have I been committing a site faux pas?

3. Music Vids are generally frowned upon in GD

 

Unless it is making a bigger point.

I Assume this fits that bill perfectly

4. Thanks, good to know.

I think the majority of my posts and replies are in GD, so I guess I'll try to remember that.

5. It depends on where you post the music video

In GD they will likely get locked unless there is some sort of political relevance to the video, you can certainly post music videos in the lounge at any time however.

While this post is not political I would encourage the hosts to let it stand as it is clearly important to someone and it is not flame bait so I don't see the harm in leaving it.
