aMAZing!

Amy Walker does 21 accents in two minutes is certainly amazing, yet, WHY I ask, WHY and how would you be able to remember your native verse after mesmerizing audiences with your talent...talk about a split personality.

She says that she tends to slip into character even in her thoughts. That would be scary for me.

Anyhow, if you want an interesting read...or to see/hear her do it [yes both senses are necessary], use the link above. Most interesting is the interview which can be accessed by this NPR link.


She is upcoming, a rising You-Tube star...check her out, it is aMAZing to watch her dialect change, tone, attitude, facial refraction, etc...!

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
