    Important: Need Your Help to Support Carrie on this Sound of Music Article

    Guys I need your help to take this nasty blogger down. He essentially trashed Carrie and the SOM broadcast before it even aired- trashed Stephen Moyer too, and encouraged everyone to live tweet and hate on it all night. He seems like a major prick, but I beg you to go comment and take him down. Thank you. You know what to do.

    I will not post the article here- too vile- but here is the link:

    Tee, who cares.

    The only thing you and every else who participates in "taking him down" will do is give the site the traffic they are looking for. Nothing more and nothing less.

    Maybe the best thing to counteract these horrible people is do post positive tweets all night.

    I agree. Ignore it. It is not any kind of high profile site that a lot of people will see. Don't go to the site. Don't respond on Twitter. And the article will most likely go almost completely unnoticed.

    I wouldn't really call this important. Just another negative thing that deserves to be ignored, but people won't then you end up giving the website the hits it wants.

    There seems to be an on-line "cult" (if that's the right word) of making semi-satirical jibes or ridicule about popular entertainment that the writer claims to hate. They presumably get a rise out of appearing to be snarky, and cooler than the fans they're annoying.
    E.g. here's a similar page, by a different writer, attacking another TV show:
    A Guide to Hate-Watching HBO?s ?Girls? - BroBible.com
    I think there's also a group devoted to trying to rig Amercan Idol by encouraging people to vote for the worst candidate.
    This is probably part of an anti-popular entertainment sentiment.

    I haven't read the page in detail - and I know next to nothing about TSOM (I've never seen either the movie or the stage show). But I immediately noticed one obvious error - the writer is referencing Julie Andrews as the "original" actress. Her movie version wasn't the original, and is not the one Carrie's producers are referencing. They are going back to the Mary Martin stage version (I think they've changed some details of the libretto, but not as much as the movie changed.) That seems to have been pointed out - Carrie's role has nothing directly to do with Julie Andrews, or the film she starred in, but the writer doesn't seem to know that.

    I do know the original was composed by Rodgers and Hammerstein (whom, oddly, the writer gives no credit to.) They're not my cup of tea - but they are giants of the musical theatre. Perhaps he knows even less than I do, lol.

    Carrie will defend herself with her performance.

    I agree with those saying the guy just wants hits to his website, and therefore increased revenue.Why give it to him?

    Because I can't stand when people trash Carrie. It is physically impossible not to defend her. Ignoring everything gives the impression she has no fans to defend her.

    I'll certainly watch Carrie, to see how she gets on.

    But, to be honest, musicals aren't really my scene - I don't think I'd be watching for too many other singers!

    The only other singer I can think of with a voice that can encompass Country and Light Opera is Rhiannon Giddens of the Carolina Chocolate Drops.

    Some troll named M trashed me on the news site- too much of a coward to use his real name. Complete jerk and a liar.
