George Michael, formally of Wam?, dead at 53. Peacefully at home.

He could sign.

I think he swung both ways so it could be disease.

I love the Hanukkah song with sign language.

Did you notice her multiple candles burning low? Nice idiosyncratic touch, don't you agree?

And that bit of personal creativitah, two points in one, (multiple candles, that's not a sign, but one is, and going lower incrementallly) makes me wonder why she spelled "latkes" instead of showing "potato pancakes." Did you see latkes or did you see a blur of flippy floppy fingers going too fast?

deborah said...

It's such a charming vid. I'd guess she spelled it out to preserve the Jewish/cultural nature of latkes.

MamaM said...

I wasn't charmed--too much of her added so it came across as something put on by her rather than an extension from within or enhanced competency.

She's cute though, so maybe it counts as a Rule 5 rendition.

Nobody cared (or even noticed) that "We Three Queens" was signed too. And people are busy going gaga over gay singers. I don't get the disconnect.

deborah said...

Chick, let's just say our attention was diverted. I used to think the gay thing was quirky and funny, but I'm way over it. Just a fashion now. A substitute for substance in many, many cases in the young.

MamaM said...

My attention wasn't diverted. It was turned off.
