American Idol, Week 1, Boyyzzz

Wow, here I thought after the girls yesterday, the boys MUST be better. But ... no. The first few guys all stunk up the joint. Lee was the first one to be actually good, and even he hit some dud notes. But before that, Todrick (name bias) mangled Kelly Clarkson, Aaron was nervous and bland but cute, Jermaine shrieked, replacement Tim Urban was boring as hell with his terrifying Zac Efron haircut, and Joe sung just OK on an unfamiliar song.

Alex has a great voice, but he was a wadded up ball of nerves. And he needs to cut his mullet. Big Mike changed his song too much, and it didn't look like he was really playing that guitar with his huge bear paws. Tyler reminds me of a couple of past contestants who seem to play dress-up with a style, but aren't genuine. Bucky Covington as a rocker comes to mind, but there was another guy whose name I forget who was a total "rock" poseur. This Tyler is a total '70s poseur.

Finally, Casey and Andrew rocked the end of the night (although I agree with Simon about Andrew; he needed to take a "Straight Up"-style risk). Good for both of them.

I'm going to call John Park (who? what? who?), Todrick, and Jermaine for the bottom three. Other guys may have been worse, but people love to keep cute little boys in the show. I guess of the three, Todrick (name bias!) will probably stay to torture me another week.

It looks like the fine folks at Vote for the Worst have turned their site into a decent-looking blog. I'm going to follow them on my RSS reader this season. Wheeee!

American Idol: Season 9, Yo!

I just don't have it in me to recap the show this season. Although I'm still totally watching the hell out of it, and have opinions galore.

Really, none of the girls blew me out of the water. Lilly did the best job with the Beatles, Didi sounds like she should be on the Grey's Anatomy soundtrack, and I have to give props to Crystal for being very up front about the fact that she's only doing the show so she can make more money.

I'm thinking Paige, Janell, and Lacey for the bottom three; I'll keep Lacey around and send the other two home. Paige's song choice sucked, and Janell's performance was cruzzy.

Just posted Dancing with the Stars recaps over on the ol' bloggaroo, which can also be seen here on LJ at themissyfeed. That's where the bulk of my content will be from now on, so please add away.

Up and coming posts: a test drive of internet radio stations, and probably some thoughts about my new-old athletic endeavor, roller skating.

I've moved a bunch of my old entries over to my own blog on my own space, at http://themissy.com . I don't know how much more I'll post here at LJ, but I do continue to read entries here every day. You can see my new stuff at themissyfeed, and you're all welcome to visit the actual site and throw a comment down, if the mood strikes.

This fall season I'm also co-recapping Dancing with the Stars for The Disney Blog, so you can see some of my blather over there.
