You know who they won't be asking that question? Storm. Brooke's introduction uses the phrase "crash your hard drives," and I feel kind of dirty. She's doing "Anything Anything" by Dramarama tonight, and according to the webisode, that's primarily by default because she's the only one of the Supernovices who knows it. I'm normally not a big fan of the kamikaze karaoke side of this show, but it pays off here. It's a fast song, and she sings the hell out of it, as she does. More crazy-eyes and lower-range belting from Storm. I am looking forward to hearing her do a song by a woman at some point. Or a slow song. Actually, I'd go as far as to say that the criticism that they gave Patrice also applies to Storm: they both do more or less the same thing each week, but the difference is that Storm's so much more energetic you don't notice as much. Until you sit down to recap it, of course. There is one big change tonight, though. At the end she's out at the tip of the runway, and she tosses her cordless microphone over her shoulder. It hits the stage before the sound booth guys can turn it off, but before we can be too distracted by the thump, she is off the stage, headfirst. Which is awesome, at first. But then you notice that amazingly, this is the one time that the front rows are packed with burly college guys instead of their girlfriends, which suggests to me that this was planned. Girlfriend is 5' 10" and athletic, and you just know that the usual complement of front-row babes would have gone completely Red Sea on her ass. Instead of belly-flopping on the floor, though, she's safely set back on her feet. Seriously, those guys have to be plants. One of them has a bald spot, for God's sake. The other Supernovices leap to their feet as if this is all real, which, for all they probably know, it might be. And to give credit where it's due, it takes more than one kind of courage to stage-dive in a miniskirt.
