Well of course, we're all familiar with the coattail-riding Mattila siblings, aren't we? Poor Randy Mattila.
The Matilla Five were among the pioneers of Finnish Motown.
I can't even spell 'Mattila'. Oh the irony.
And who will ever forget her sister's wardrobe malfunction in Salome?
I miss the WellSungs. They always made me feel young with their hip lingo that the kids use nowadays on their interweb computational devices. Seriously, I do miss reading their blog and their take on operas. I do appreciate Maury's use of "fail" as a noun. I had only read about this locution in a William Safire column, so I was happy to see an example in context. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/09/magazine/09FOB-onlanguage-t.html
Anon: occasionally I use the youth lingo. "Slang," I think they call it. You and I are in a lot of trouble when we start figuring out what the hell kids are talking about by reading Safire!
I think the Wellsung boys are creatures of the active opera season, and I'm hoping they will be back with the start of things again soon.In teh winter things are, like, smokin and they're down with that, but in the summer they're, like, meh--know what I'm sayin?
