sistermagpie has started a discussion of Susan Boyle and why her story resonates with so many people, and also of reality TV/pop idol shows and why they're so popular. Interesting discussion so far.

Discussion is here, if you're interested.

Would you believe the whole Susan Boyle thing was flying completely under my radar before you mentioned it in your journal? Man, Prim, I am out of touch.

Anyway, my inherent lameness aside, her story is really fascinating, both on a narrative level, and from a sociological perspective. Such an interesting case study. Thanks for posting the link to the discussion!

I didn't hear/read about her on LJ, believe it or not. It was my mother who sent me a link. And case studies and sociology aside, I'd definitely buy her CD. :)
