I hadn't heard the term "panto" before, so I looked it up:

Definition: Panto (another name for Pantomime in the UK) is a peculiarly British tradition of winter musical comedy theater. It has nothing to do with mime - silent performers in white-face make up walking into glass or doing Marcel Marceau-type physical comedy.

British pantomime takes familiar fairy tales and children's stories - Cinderella, Aladdin, Dick Whittington and His Cat, Snow White - and injects a bit of music hall (British Vaudeville) sensibility, contemporary references and audience participation to create a raucous, noisy entertainment that's fun for everyone in the family.


And apropos of Mickey Rooney, I saw this:

"We all know that panto is the favoured stamping ground (read: reliable payday) for countless British soap stars, pop rejects and reality-TV casualties. But increasingly, American talent is slopping on the slap and hogging the limelight."


At least I learned something out of this incident.

Panto is meant to be a little raucous, yes, but if there's any truth in this story, Amy took it too far. Audience participation is one thing, but drunken celebs heckling the cast is not in the spirit of panto at all. I'm sure the story is exaggerated but I wouldn't be surprised if there's a grain of truth in in there somewhere.

My cousin saw something about it in the local news; she said all those they interviewed that were in attendance were sympathetic to Amy and nobody said anything too bad about her.

Probably the Sun sprinkled some sugar in the story, but it did happen and it really is not good either way.

She's in front of you!

Amy Winehouse died, and she's taken a part of my soul with her. May that part be the love that I felt for her, and may the love that I still feel for her be the undying part of us both.
