Life does indeed imitate art

I’m caught up in a postmodern hall of mirrors. Yesterday I made and posted my Farewell, Sanjaya tribute video. First of all, it’s quite clearly a joke, what with “You have two of fifteen minutes left” and “this is a joke, people” at the end. Still, it garners comments from people who just don’t get it:

wtf are you high? what sort of damn song is that? how many shots are there of the little girl. i am truly confused what that video was even for. appalled.

What sort of damn song? It’s only “Seasons in the Sun,” the most irritatingly maudlin song ever recorded. And then I get:

lol, u made it luk like he’s dead or sumthin. iz jus american idol, chill…he’ll mov on, n so will america.

Thanks for clarifying. I thought they took contestants out onto the Fox lot and shot them. (I guess it was just Antonella they did that to.)

Astonishing. But even more incredible is this:

In the first episode of PuckTube (which makes fun of itself as well as of other vlogs/vodcasts, duh!) I feature a letter from “amber h.” in Raleigh, North Carolina, in which she calls me on the carpet for having made fun of Sanjaya Malakar:

Puck u r such a fuckin loosebag,,,
how dare u insult Sanjayah like that,
he is 1 of the best singers evar on
amercan idol + ne1 can see that.
plus, he has nice hair. just wait,
ul see sanajaya will win!!!1!
I ❤ sanjaya 4ever!!!!

amber h.
raleigh NC

p.s. what is PoMo, is that like a
hair product?

Now, compare this to actual comments on my Sanjaya tribute video, from a YouTube user named tthatsrightt. I really am not making these up:

***poor sanjaya he will be misst.
he was juged verrrry unfairly and biest,cus thr only used to a lowd african or uro ,anoing voises that give u a head ake,,,if san jaya looks african or uro,,,not asian or hispanic,,,then things wud have been alot difrent,,he would have been compared to miclejakson,,Not racialy rejected.
**he has the best voice of the guys,,,he deserved first or second place.

****DONT tell Ryan-Secrest…to Shut Up. (he was right).
