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! πŸ™‚

Avatar Movie Wallpapers Collection 6 (1920 x 1080 pixels)

These wallpapers are 1920 x 1080 pixels in size for widescreen monitors.

For a movie that’s asΒ  popular as Avatar, there aren’t that many great and large images to choose from to create wallpapers. I’ve collected what I could find and did a fair bit of touch up to them to create this collection and those of other monitor sizes listed below. Most of it was reducing noise because the pictures were terribly grainy, so it wasn’t like I altered the avatars or anything. I also took out a lot of advertisements that are annoying to look at and did not put any of my own.

Due to the lack of good images, I also added a few from the video game, which has some pretty good images of its own. Of course, they are video game quality, not movie quality, but as pictures, they were better quality than most of the movie pictures I found. Whichever you like, I hope you find something you like in the collection below.

My Avatar movie and video game wallpaper collections are also available for these other sizes:

  • 1024 x 768 pixels (also good for 800 x 600 and 640 x 480 monitors) β€” 61 wallpapers
