Even in death, FFJ can still do horrible things...

Such as crashing my Firefox browser when trying to listen to her "singing". Twice.

Anyway, a little background on Florence Foster Jenkins:

  1. She thought she could sing beautifully.
  2. She really could not.
  3. She remained oblivious to this fact throughout her life.
  4. She died a month after her only public performance, possibly from embarrassment.
Selected works:

  1. The Glory (????) of the Human Voice (Compilation)
Seriously, go see if you can find one of her recordings on iTunes or elsewhere. Then pride yourself in being able to sing better than her.
