very average at all the instruments. guitar part was wrong aswell. shame really. i’m sure whe coul of played it better.
Let us know when you post your own josh, I’ll be glad to critique it.
Agree with Brad. How many instruments do you play josh? May not be the best I’ve heard, but better than I could do.
I hear josh blows a mean man-sackaphone.
I think it’s time for a makeover.
I’ll never understand how some people can allow themselves to be so f-ing shallow. Time for a makeover? WTF? Makeovers are for the Paris Hilton’s of the world, not for women like Jenny who can provide more substance in one breath, than all the “made-over” Paris’ combined. What a babe this Jenny is, and with one sexy voice to boot!
Lol @ the ownage.
I’m glad the greasy hair and glasses w/ bumble bee sweater does it for you.
I agree with jack, it was fantastic, her voice is crisp and spot on. it should not matter what she looks like when she can sing like that.
only like her voice.. everybody can learn how to play the instruments on that level.. (and no i don’t play any instruments)
She reminds me of tina fey.
Except with a bigger rack.
Now i’m dissapointed in all the shallow and stuck up people here.
1.Being in band at one time i know that it is harder then most of you think to play an instrument.
2. In surprised that she can play both the flute and saxa-maphone(simpsons reference) The ways techniques are very different.
3.I’m surprised she can do drums, piano, and bass guitar. The beats for each that are usually needed are very different.
4. Shes got a voice on her. Alot harder then most of you think. Next time you can try finding some one that plays a guitar and sings. Exculding the awsome dave mustane. But Serioiusly to sing it’s pretty hard.
5.I dont know about you retards but i’d hit something with that much talent. She may not be a porn star of tyra banks or some maodel but she sure as hell has some looks and definatly could pay your way if she made it big. Which i’m sure it could happen.
El Fine bitches.
i’d hit it.
Ok guys. I think you got me all wrong on this. All I’m saying is if you are making a video (for a job even in this case) and you are going to learn a song, and play all the instruments you can also take to the time to 1. Wash your hair 2. Brush your hair 3. Put on some decent clothes. I do think she is probably ok looking which makes it even more sad that she has the rolled out of bed look during her debut. Just sayin. Hate me if you want but an extra 30 minutes of preparation she could have looked really nice.
See #6 above.
Peace out, Yo.
She does a wonderful job of a remake of a very talented recording artist. Their is a lot of studio work and editing (dont know about video but audio)in the making of this. I would be honored and proud to work with this talented of an individual. I would also love to hear any original work from here. The worst part is it was posted here where her hair is critiqued over her abilities. In all fairness though the blonde doing the mic test into the wrong end belongs here though.
Faust1200 has some redemption from the previous comment and upon second look a really good point. Obviously people watch these videos and if she did go to all the trouble maybe she should have tried to portray herself in a more marketable light. Its not being shallow or a sell out, its called selling yourself on societies expectations. She wouldn’t have to dress like Brittany spears but at least dress up to match all the talent.
How can so many of you be so shallow! I actually know jenny, and she is a beautiful girl. Considering how amazing she is musically I can’t believe you’re all talking about her hair! and whats more. she’s playing loads of instruments and has headphones on in each, taking thoses on and off will muck up your hair anyway. The beauty of the video is that she is a NORMAL person and great at what she does. Not whether on not that colour looks goodon her.
I agree with #15 above. I play flute, alto sax and tenor sax, and lemme tell ya…although the note fingerings are nearly identical for the three instruments, the technique are very different. Also, she has a good voice, great intonation (look it up non-musicians) and camera presence. Yep, she could have dressed a little better, but look at the rock bands out there now and how they dress…Sheesh, critique the talent not the clothes!!!
“Its not being shallow or a sell out, its called selling yourself on societies expectations.”
Excuse me viper, but “selling yourself” on “societies expectations,” would be the epitome of a shallow sell-out. Unfortunately, those who do it, can’t recognize it (that’s a generalization, and not a personal assessment, BTW).
Also… next time faust1200 sees a green and yellow bumble bee, I want a picture of it!
Great job Jenny! You look and sound terrific!
Noob.us is a great site for vids that I don’t often see anywhere else, unfortunately the comments frequently lack maturity. I was surprised to see the comments on Youtube to be such a contrast. Last time I checked (a few days ago) there wasn’t one negative remark over there about this clip.
Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
alright Incredulous Cretin, agree to the sell out, but doesn’t mean you are shallow. Why don’t you look up the definition of shallow. For all involved in this conversation take this example. Dress in shitty, dirty, clothes, punk style hair with gothic makeup. Gee I can’t figure out why no one will give me a job? I’m just being true to myself. Bullshit, you look like a scumbag piece of shit. Don’t care what your talents are, my customers pay the bills and they don’t want to see that crap. Just saying, when was the last time you saw a plane jane looking person with lots of talent make a name for themselves? Its called the Triple threat. Skill, talent, and LOOKS!!
On the scum bag note. Punk rock, gothic music, etc. Dress the part to whom they are playing. Get it? They dress for the talent they have, the style they are portraying, the society of people they are marketing to. Get it yet? Dress the part, look the part, act the part. Jennie’s beautiful sounds, and multiple talents DON”T match her plane jane look. If I had my eyes closed I would have imagined someone more with the appearance of Crystal Gail…well kept, neat, professional. Get it yet?
Do we know what job she was going for? Do we know if she got that job? We do not. My customers also pay the bills, and they don’t give a rats ass what you look like, so long as they get what they are paying for, which isn’t our “looks.” I don’t have enough toes and fingers to count all of the “triple threats” that I didn’t hire, precisely because they were a little too “threatening,” but that’s not the point here at all.
The point is that we don’t really know a whole lot about Jenny beyond the fact that she has made an enjoyable video of her talents, presumably for a job that we know nothing about, with unknown results. We do know that she has talent, and she produced the video in a casual environment, wearing casual attire. Presumptions and judgment beyond those facts are simply ignorant.
Shallow: Lacking in intellectual depth or thoroughness: cursory, one-dimensional, sketchy, skin-deep, superficial, uncritical.
Get it yet?
So you admit that you discriminate based on looks too!! Reread your 1st paragraph. How do you know they where going to threaten you? You just judged them on their looks. Maybe they should have dressed down for you. Maybe that would have been whom you were looking for, but you didn’t take the time to find out because you didn’t hire them based on their looks, etc. Hmmmm. can we say hypocrit? I do think that is the exact point here.
Get it now? Check mate.
You are right on one point though, we don’t even know if she was going for a job in the first place, but someone doesn’t usually go to all that trouble if they aren’t trying to get discovered. Or maybe she just wanted to produce a video showcasing all of her talent because she had nothing better to do. Maybe she was hoping to have people arguing over the net about what she was wearing that day. lol.
is everyone else enjoying the banter?
Its actually comical when you think about it considering we are both in a heated discussion over some person that neither one of us knows, has met, or probably ever will. I love the internet.
She Sucks. Show us your teets, jenny
OK, this is the last post I’m making on this increasingly ridiculous topic. Let’s start with number 25 and work our way up the list, shall we? Holy crap, this is getting redundant.
25. I don’t view the discussion as heated. Few internet “discussions” are worth that sort of involvement, and it’s not about one person, it’s about people in general.
24. I think everyone else has better things to do. At least I hope so.
23. Check Mate? Never. Hypocrite? I don’t think so. I don’t need to re-read my first paragraph, but maybe you should. What I said was that “I donâ€™t have enough toes and fingers to count all of the ‘triple threats’ that I didnâ€™t hire, precisely because they were a little too ‘threatening’…â€ You understood that statement to mean that they weren’t hired BECAUSE OF their looks, when it was meant to indicate (sarcastically) that they weren’t hired because their looks were ALL THEY HAD. In other words, hiring them, based on the only real trait (their looks) that they possessed, would have been “threatening” to my business because neither I, nor my clients, need them for their looks. Capiche? I guess if I thought about it (and I just did), I could say that I have hired people with all types of physical appearances. Some are plain, some are downright hideous, some are decent looking, and some are absolutely gorgeous (she’s under my desk right now), but it’s irrelevant because they weren’t hired for “the look.” I can’t make it any more clear than that.
Sorry about the Check Mate thing.
holy beef flavoured buddhists Batman, there’s quite a ruckas here!
just thought id let you guys know, she’s 99% got the job, and her friends tell me there may be some kind of follow up vid that gives some more info.
Im gonna suggest that she does some Queen next, or possibly Mozart next
nice way to try and backout and restate your argument INCREDULOUS CRETIN. I know the truth. (cough, hypocrit, cough) How come only the “gorgeous” one is under your desk? Why not the hideous one? Do you base decisions and even the very basis of your thinking just on looks? Only “gorgeous” girls, or do you mean guys?), want to be under your desk. “Hideous” people need lovin too, but you probably wouldn’t give them the time of day! Heck, they probably have just as much talent but you’ll never find out since you are obviously pre-disposed to “gorgeous” people. I think that pretty much makes the point of this whole discussion. People judge on looks, even you. (cough, hypocrit, cough)
I am perfectly clear now!
CHECK MATE STANDS…END OF GAME!
Guess everyone else has something better to do except us. lol although i bet they all enjoyed the posts.
you dudes are fuckin’ hilarious! naw Viper, Cretin got checkmate on that one. the pretty one is prolly under the desk for her talents and not for her looks. oh and it’s hypocrite with a e, there bud! what was this about again?
sorry boobieluvr…nevr ws mutch guud at spellin…lol.. cretin did say that she was under the desk because she was the gorgeous one, not for her talents. regardless, I can’t quit remember what started it all. rowl.
