my american idol commentary

so i seriously wish american idol would let me sit in on one of the times they visit all the different cities in the early part of the competition. i dont mean to just watch either, i mean to actually cast a vote that would play a part in determining if the contestant is "GOING TO HOLLYWOOD!" in these early rounds, i find myself deciding whether the person should go on or not...thats after i get done laughing hysterically at the 'abysmal ones' as simon would say. maybe i could represent 'the peoples vote' ya dig.

anyway, now that ive plugged my desire to judge, i will now share some of my thoughts from last nights show and the contestants in general...oh, and the judges.

anyway lets start with judges. let the tomatoes fly:

randy: he is pretty decent, but somewhat annoying at times. i can picture him in his dressing room before the show practicing all his 'urban terms' that he randomly throws out to seem hip.

kara: i honestly dont know what to make of her. at times she seems to be trying to hard to fit in and is extremely corny at times. not to mention that last night her math was a tad off! tell me you heard her say that she only had 6 words for adam. those 6?? words were 'one of the best performances of the night!' sooo im going to go out on a limb and say that that is not 6 words. as soon as she said it, i had that confused look and replayed it counting the words ever so slowly. what really confuses me is how she actually came up with this line. i dont know if she was just free-styling or tried to prepare it beforehand. i hope that she did not prepare the line thinking it was ready to go as is, but i doubt she free-styled bc that seems pretty tough to do. when you make such a bold claim like that, you have got to spot on! i mean imagine if moses would have added another commandment after declaring not to covet! pretty sure the masses would have been humored if even for a little bit!

paula: i swear the contestants look so disinterested when paula stammer...words out..that have so making...the contestants......any......better! i can also see paula in the dressing room mirror before the show telling herself over and over, ' and...try to...make sense...of else...fails..tell....the..girls...they look...pretty.'you pretty much know you've sucked if paula comments more about your fashion than the actual singing!

simon: easily the best judge by a mile! even though he isnt a singer, he consistently gives good feedback and its applicable and truthful. the only knock on simon is that is handshake looks really lame!

anyway, briefly on to last nights performances:

matt: is a beast! he's really talented and soulful. i was trippin when he initially was about to not make the cut.

kris: honestly he is just average to me. i think he sings well, but everything has the same 'feel' to it and it gets boring. even when he plays the guitar it sounds like he's playing the same song but singing different words.

scott: an awesome story, but he his really starting to bore me as well. he sounds like he was born about a decade or two late because of the way he sings. i forget the song he played a few weeks ago but it really fit him well, but i dont see him being able to do anything current.

megan: a very pretty girl (like paula would say so you know whats coming) with a cool tatted up look that suits her, but she is very limited in what she can do well. even when she actually gets the song choice right, she just sems to fall short in my opinion. i thought she would have wrecked(in a good way) 'rockin robin' a few weeks ago, but she was average and for some reason she didnt seem to follow the beat and then that god-awful squawk at the end was so unbelievably hideous!! as soon as i heard what song she was doing last night, i shuddered and thought it was going to be a train wreck...and she then followed to do derail the entire train! yikes

annop: i actually like his voice but i dont think he can win the whole thing. i told my brother that he could sing but he isnt a singer. similar to someone being able to catch, throw, or even run fast but they are not a football player ya dig. im am so glad he is over doing that crap version of bobby brown's 'my prerogative'.

michael: a fellow texan, but not a good singer or at least he hasnt shown it. his song choices are also starting to bore the hell out of me.

lil rounds: a talented singer who also chooses terrible songs. when i heard she was doing 'heatwave' i was let down because i thought she was in the right type of music to belt out some powerful tunes, because she was waaaay out of her element with country week and who knows when she'll be able to pick something that will allow her to do her thing...or as randy would say, 'whats goin down dawg, you alright up there, i was waiting for you to do your thang girl! i was like what?'...whatever

danny: he's also a beast and again what a great story, but yesterday was pretty boring. his 'dancing' was also pretty silly looking. either way he is a great singer and should be in the finals.

adam: i dont know what to make of this guy. i swear im looking at the guy from green day, but i also swear im listening to cher at times! he made me really uncomfortable during country week! he is very talented but i dont know what to make of him or what kind of music he would actually do. i dont see how that extremely high pitched shrill would fit in...again just one mans opinion

and theres...

alison: the girl is a beast-ette?? anyway the girl can sing and i love the raspy sound to her voice. it annoys me how the judges keep saying that for 16 she can sing well. it comes across as something similar to someone saying, 'oh that girl is pretty smart for a blonde'. i think i know what they mean but it sounds like they're minimizing what she can do or speaking in a condescending tone for some reason.

anyway to sum up miss alison in all the words/way of the judges i would say this... i only have 3 words for the dawg miss alison and those 3 words are: she is my choice to win the whole thing because the girl...can...really sing...well...i mean some of the other contestants are absolutely rubbish and a bit like some singer in lounge somewhere. alison those...singers. dawg u can really sing, i was like what? this girl has skills, what? what? wow you blew it out da box girl! what?

anyway, we'll see how the show goes tonite.

hello lost and found? yes, i seem to have misplaced february!

so i havent posted in forever and a day plus 3. i must add that the football season is a big contributor to my lack of posting, not to mention the kiddos draped around me daily! i must also mention that my oldest is 9 years old and now has to check her email to stay in contact with her friends!

the football season pretty much covers the time from my last blog thru january. apparently its now march and i havent the slightest as to what i did with february! now i have been traveling alot so my best guess is that i left part of it in iraq or kuwait. i was there for 9 days visiting the troops and had a blast (bad choice of words i know)! i actually blogged and posted pics about the trip for which you can check out if you want. theres 3 total posts and you can navigate your way through all of them from here. i do want to post some of my own pics here with a little something about each because needed a certain amount and this certain amount wasnt enough to fully capture all that i wanted to share. i came back to the boston area for a week then took off for london from the 14-20th with the fam. we went with all three kids and they actually did well on the plane ride. even the boy! i guess the wine really helped them... ahem, i mean me. of course i came equipped with my 'touristy like camera' and we even got the kids those disposable cameras so they could take their own photos. naturally my daughters took pics of things that were cool to them. you know, big ben, the london taxis, double decker buses, and the like. naturally my son took pics of his face, up his nose, and close ups of everyone else's face he was close to! we were there for 6 days, saw some historic things and places, met up with family and all my kids seem to remember is the time i got laughed at by a cop in front of buckingham palace! here's how this story went... we were out front and there were tons of cars driving in through the gates and they were all dressed up. so i decided i would see what the deal was and how could we be a part of this group going in to meet the queen or at least see inside. so i stop one of the cops standing around out front...

me- excuse me sir, what are all these people doing?
cop- they are all the people going in to see the queen
me- oh really? i dont suppose we could get in to meet the queen as well
me- sooo is that like a maybe??

it is extremely difficult to meet the queen and i knew that, but i had to at least try ya dig. i still didnt deserve to get laughed at in such an obnoxious manner! its heard to capture, but you should have heard this guys laugh. it was like the stereotypical thick english belly laugh and he did it right in my face in front of my kids! anyhow, the kids soon found this the highlight of the trip and my wife jumped in on the matter pointing out the fact that i just stood there with this confused look on my face like i was saying, 'sooo is that a yes or no?' what a jerk. anyhow it was a great trip and needless to say, my body's time clock was extremely off! it was a 12 hour flight into kuwait and a 14 hour flight back! can you say merlot and ambien! the flight to london wasnt as bad but still enough to jack you up! i dont get a chance to hang with my sister all that often, due to the distance naturally, so it was awesome for our kids to actually meet and hang out. actually, my niece and daughter is part of the reason i have to 'wait in line' to use the computer because they're always emailing each other! this october we will actually be facing tampa bay in london. im excited for the game overseas and for the my sister to be able to see me play for the first time. she doesnt know american football all that well but i told her she has a few months before the game to study up! from london i then took part in a nfl business management and entrepreneurial program at harvard business school and i seriously had to go check on the spelling for entreprewhatever! i always have the roughest time trying to spell the damn thing!...TANGENT ALERT... for whatever reason i also have the same difficulty while texting definetely, damn! i mean defintly, damn! thats definitely!! what the hell?! dont know why that word is so difficult! harvard business my ass!...back to the original post without missing a beat...its basically a class designed to help those looking to gain more knowledge on business strategies, marketing, and the spelling of entreprewhoozit! its a great and informative class and im glad i went. theres actually two parts and the second is in april. the last thing in february i was able to squeeze in was a small fashion show for a clothing line my wife and i are developing. its still in its infancy stage but ive always had the desire to start one but just didnt know what direction i wanted to go in. i went from one idea to the other, then from the indecision of even starting this in such a volatile industry. the desire to try something rather than deal with the torment of wishing i had eventually won out. so after years of trashing ideas and concepts i think im finally headed in a direction that feels right. if all goes well, this july will be our big launch and we'll see how things go from there.

anyhow, i look up and its already march and im about to be 32 years young pretty soon. crazy! i swear i was just wishing everyone around me a happy new year and celebrating my daughters 7th birthday! oh well, im back posting again and promise to post more of the same random, pointless, useless, waste of time, silly stuff i started before! i havent posted in forever but that doesnt mean my mind hasnt been thinking of silly stuff to share!
