Something Good

18 Feb

Don’t ask me why….just because.  Perhaps in honor of Josiah Lemming?  Nah.  Just love me some Peter Noone.

    And here I thought it was a Carol King Tribute.

    Your Huckleberry Friend has some interesting stuff
    on this guy. I don’t watch American Idol and won’t. But if what Huckleberry has written is true
    then the music industry will be turned upside down with more unknowns getting a little national exposure. You don’t have to win a contest to succeed. I’m all for it.

    Just read that Huckleberry Friend, and though I’m not quite the Josiah fan she is, she’s got a great point. AI is now officially scared of anyone with the least bit of originality drumming up excitement and (groan) maybe even winning! They can’t “afford” another non-cloned contestant with such appeal….who will only sell a measly 700,000 albums, and hike up their ratings….

    Ick.

    can’t help myself! This is from Votefortheworst.com and it is really funny:

    MAXIMUM PIMPAGE — You know who they are, because Idol won’t tell you about ANYBODY ELSE. Based on my Scientific System: Here’s your final 7.

    Danny Noriega — VFTW’s Next Great Spicy Latino Hope. His singing and speaking voice make him sound like Aiken version 2.0. We’re pulling for you, little buddy!

    David Archuleta — Some Pimpage points taken off for the show
    not mentioning his paralyzed vocal chords sob story again.
    Is that the best you’ve got David? Paula has a brain hemmorage AND a mid-life crisis once a week, sometimes twice. Naturally he sings one of the all time weenie songs from Bryan “Weenie” Adams, so we’re officially allowed to hate him now.

    David Hernandez — He hasn’t gotten the pimpage until this point
    but mark my words, it’s a-coming. David H. is the reason
    why VFTW will never be without choices. He sings a schmaltzy version of Love The One You’re With featuring cheeserific Elliott Yamin dance moves. Really Dave, you’re borrowing from HIM? The judges tripped over themselves trying to ego-stroke
    David’s bog-standard Idol performance. Randy called it “Really
    good.” More like, “Really Cheesy.” And Paula sent him through
    with “A sazillion per cent Yes.” See, Paula had to make up a
    word meaning “number of astronomical size” which is really
    the percentage that she wants to stroke David’s kielbasa.
    The Pimpage is coming for David H…

    Michael Johns — This guy got to sing TWO ENTIRE SONGS tonight. Both were over-wrought and over-sung. He even chose
    “Bohemian Rhapsody” just to let us know that he’s a tool.
    Based on Pimpage up to this point Michael is a lock for Final 2 unless VFTW has something to say about it.

    Brooke White – She gets the Pimp Slot (#1) on Maximum Pimpage night. She does a decent Tori Amos impression by playing her own piano accompaniment. Well, she’s a good singer, but a mediocre pianist.

    Syesha Mercado– She got her own story arc, and moment of heroism.
    See, Syesha can’t sing in the beginning of the show because she
    has a sore throat. But then she tries hard and overcomes her
    obstacle and puts on a winning performance that catapults her
    into the Final 3, where she is trounced by Finalists 1 and 2.
    Michael Johns being two, and number one…

    Carly Smithson — Over the course of the night we see Carly’s entire journey thus far on Idol. From when she was so unbelievably awesome that she could’ve won season 5 except that she couldn’t get the proper work visa. Through to when we learn that Carly sucked earlier this season because she’s “allergic to her dog.” So you see, she’s not really a horrible singer after all. And see tonight she sings TWO over-dramatic 1990’s style pop melisma ballads, and then she Celine Deion’s all over a Whitney song. Carly is indeed your Idol 7 winner if the Evil Simon’s can manipulate your votes.

    That’s why we need VFTW more than ever this season. Remember people, each and every one of your votes counts, except when they dont’t, like when the monkeys flashed the wrong phone numbers on-screen or when they turned a karaoke competition into a self-serving Charity Beg-athon for Africa.
