Logic is Not Always Logical

https://digitalcitizen.ca/category/my-quotes/If logic were always logical, then why were so many things deduced incorrectly, and still continue to be? How could people logically draw different conclusions from the same set of information, sometimes without one conclusion among them being confirmable as the correct conclusion?

Always Have Something to Prove, Whether to Yourself or to Others

https://digitalcitizen.ca/category/my-quotes/What are you currently trying to prove to someone or to yourself? If you could not identify anything consciously, think to see if you might be trying to prove something to someone or to yourself subconsciously, where you were so focused on the goal you might have forgotten the reason. If you could not identify anything still, is thinking about it sparking any ideas or motivation? I always have a list of things to prove to myself and/or others. My challenge is to remember them all rather than not have a thing to prove!

Lin Yu Chun is NO Chinese Susan Boyle, But Maybe Susan Boy

So, we have our first Internet singing sensation of 2010. He’s a Taiwanese Boy named Lin Yu Chun.

That was the reality show video that got him noticed, singing Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You… and sounding incredibly like her! I’ll even give him points for being better cause he’s not screeching like Whitney did. He’s a bit more breathy at the start and in some parts, but he can learn to hold that microphone just a tad farther away at the right moments. That’s the easy part.

However, I have a problem with the moniker the Westerners are giving him, the Chinese Susan Boyle.

Chinese???

Please. Taiwanese.

Things made in China just ain’t that good, K?

As for the Susan Boyle comparison, it was because he was on a reality TV show and didn’t look that great, but sang magnificently. Someone pinned Susan Boyle’s comparison to him cause he’s an ugly duckling that preyed on our judgment of people for their looks, only to sing with the beauty of a swan.

Most Viewed YouTube Clips Ever, as of Apr 17 2009, and still rising by millions per day then (click to enlarge)

But Susan Boyle was, and is still, the biggest Internet YouTube sensation. I don’t see anywhere near 50 million views in a few days, do you? I don’t mean on the video above, but do a search and add up the views on all the duplicates. It doesn’t even come close!

Lin Yu Chun’s video would probably be doing better if it had the electric atmosphere seen in Susan Boyle’s video. Man, that was something!

So sadly, in terms of Internet YouTube singing sensation, sorry Lin. Yu aren’t even close.

However, the way he sings like a woman, and I mean that in a complimentary way, may I recommend we dub him the Taiwanese Susan Boy.

The video below of Lin Yu Chun singing Amazing Grace is a better sample of his singing, in my opinion. I Will Always Love You was never to my liking the way Whitney sounded like a cat in heat for parts of it. Amazing Grace? That’s one of those tunes like a Bob Dylan song where you can mediocritize it and it still sounds great! And Lin, Yu sang it like you believed!

BRAVO!!!

Yu not Susan Boyle yet, Lin. But keep this up and you’re on your way! Hope to hear more great stuff in the future.

And don’t let the Chinese keep you down!

No worries. This blog has probably been banned in China for a long time now.

But when does Britain’s Got Talent 2010 start??? I want to know if they’ve got a British Lin Yu Chun! 🙂
