This is a very rare occurrance. MilesTones deeply regrets the posting of a story without giving careful consideration to the incident beforehand. So much so that, with hat in hand, this writer with great humility, begs forgiveness from the subject of that recently published entry with a sincere apology for thoughtlessly putting this before the public. To say this lapse of judgement disturbs me is a gross understatement. Critics, enjoy this while you can.
All of us have watched and chuckled over movie clip outakes that show a star fluffing lines, forgetting where he or she is in the program while seemingly unable to control a flow of jangled words. A year ago at the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards, several stars, who were obviously so loaded that they could do a high wire act without the wire, could not even put two words together for their acceptence speech or presenter’s introductions. MilesTones did cover that SAG Awards show with a twinkle in the words. Moreover, when the stars are out of sorts, it is usually because of their own abuse of substance and themelves.
When CBS 2 TV reporter, Serene Branson, recently tried to cover the Grammy Awards on a live telecast, her words were too jumbled to understand. She virtually could not put two words together, and what came out was not words but sounds. The clip of that on-air disaster quickly hit U-Tube which immediately garnered millions of viewers who got quite a laugh out of it. Unfortunately, they include this writer, who posted the video with a tongue-in-cheek take on it.
