the point of pouring a shit ton of ice water over yourself is because when one suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) one of the effects the disease has is a numbness throughout the body, as well as struggling to breathe, and both these are meant to temporarily happen when doused in freezing water. It’s to raise awareness of what ALS feels like and encourage donations towards research and cures.
The title song from today’s matinee. Needless to say I was surrounded by very confused tourists. It was definitely an experience I’m never going to forget. I felt so bad, especially for Jeremy who sang all of his bits despite his mic not being turned up until ‘In all your fantasies’, but all I could do was laugh.
I didn’t do touch my phone or anything, this is exactly how it sounded in the theatre.

"If you really believe in standing up to those threatening the Christian way of life," Hills said on his UK television program "The Last Leg," "how about putting your money where your mouth is, taking a direct flight to Iraq and picketing the people threatening to behead Christians if they don’t convert?"
Hills then took his suggestion a step further by making a generous offer. “I will personally pay for every member of the Westboro Baptist Church to fly to Iraq right now. I’ll even fly you first class and pay the carbon offset.”
