Middle Castro Goes To Work in New Family Business

October 8, 2008

Check out this little video of the Ft. Laudardale / Miami Fox affiliate Channel 7’s American Idol audition coverage. They’re in Kansas City, the last stop on next season’s Idol audition tour.

It gets good around the :48 mark.

Look who is trying out! Michael Castro! He’s the younger brother of Stoner J ! I’ve heard a lot of people say Michael has a better voice than his older brother, yet I had also always heard he was too shy to try out. It looks like his family must have roped him into their new family business, hoping to capitalize on his brother’s existing fanbase, as well as kicking the Michael Castro fan forum threads into major action.

He’s a college freshman, but what good is college when there’s American Idol? Looks like the middle Castro child is getting pushed into the family business. I mean, come on! Who needs higher education when you have merchandising opportunities and the potential for even more fan handouts? Exactly!

If his brother was with him and they were sitting in that nice little waiting room before going in to meet with the judges, you already know Michael most likely made it to Hollywood. And there’s already a built-in back story! There’s never been an instance where two siblings made the Top 24, let alone in two different seasons. This could finally put the Crazy Castro Fans into a category of their own, completely blowing away all that Claymate lunacy.

Does this mean Michael Castro is going to be the family’s Michael Corleone? Poor guy.

    Spoonidiot, since you are incapable of putting together anything other than a sentence or two of basic profanities, I can understand why you struggle with anything other than inner city gang language. It also makes it clear while you will never be successful at anything you ever do in your life.

    Yes…you are the definition of a loser. One that society will have to subsidize for decades until your passing. Sad how no one will attend your funeral and you will be found in some alley and be placed in the unclaimed section of the morgue with a little tag around your big toe that says: “John Doe.”

    Pathetic little worm you are. Now move along, isn’t it time for you to climb a tree and try to get a peak of the little 14 year in the trailer next door in her training bra?

    Yawn, I thought you were gone. Well, I guess every board needs their “board idiot” that makes a constant source of entertainment to all the other readers by continuing to display his complete lack of intelligence. You win that one hands down. You should change your name to “special needs poster.” You just can’t get away from your earlier days when you were the kid wearing the hockey helmet, licking the window while sitting in the front seat on the short school bus.

    Things are a lot nicer around here when you leave your trailer for a few hours to drum up a few local pre school kids to play “leap frog” with. Must be some party you had today, drinking those cheap malt liquors and puffing those generic smokes you love so much. I bet only little kids aren’t offended when you expose your undeveloped genitals. Probably why you are so infatuated with young men would be my guess.

    You simply have to have something better to do with your time. Sure, I realize downloading gay pornography on your 54k modem gets tediuos at times and that soiled pair of underwear you haven’t changed in a week is sticking to the vinyl on the folding chair, but can you please find somewhere else to use your time? At the very least, would you mind elevating your prose to at least a third grade level?

    Rachel, the only thing that I think is pretty sad is that you have a graduate degree and you choose to spend your time hating the Castro family. I think it is insulting to your parents that you spend this much time obsessing about the Castro family, rather than utilizing the the graduate degree you claim to have.

    I don’t think you can speak for Jason in regards to his future plans. Dreadhead or not you don’t seem to have any knowledge about Castro land and
    you lack any concrete evidence that Jason doesn’t give a crap about his music career.

    BTW Spoon, ITA agree with you regarding Jason wasting his college scholarship. I had a full ride as well, and I worked hard to maintain it…to piss it all away would have been an insult to my parents, to my college, and to all the other deserving students who could have reaped the benefits. I went onto graduate school, which I paid myself. I’m convinced that Jason doesn’t give a crap about finishing college OR his music career. He seems to just want to hang out and coast on his looks. Pretty sad, really.

    First thing you need to do is apologize to the unsuspecting readers that may not be aware that you have never been the same since your tragic drunk driving accident in which you were the only driver. It must be hard pecking away at the keys wearing a hockey helmet and with a steel plate in your head. I mean, what color are the clouds on your planet? You obviously have not come to terms with reality. Maybe you need another trip back to your “mother ship?”

    It is people like you that make me thankful that I live in a gated community. Knowing there are some like you that are not just confined to mental institutions and prisons and are out co-mingling with the rest of society is truly disturbing. Fortunatley, a person with your limited skills and abilities is not going to be able to achieve an income level other than mininum wage so we can be happy that you lack the funds to do anything other than stalk and download pornography.

    Fortunately,us readers all know that every minute you spend pecking away on these message boards is that much time less that your out there in public stalking B list musicians, small school children and others in your trench coat as you drive around your white panel van. I’d hate to know why you carry around a roll of duct tape, handcuffs, a ball pein hammer and a video camera.

    Now why don’t you to an open field and do a trial run of your upcoming suicide bombing?

    No SPOON I don’t see why you are so angry and bitter. I think you can be proud of what you accomplished, but I see no reason why you focus on others when nothing can be gained by it. Being angry at something you have no control over is a no win situation. Focus on your accomplishments and be happy.
    Of course I don’t view this as negative. I see people working at accomplishing their goals. College isn’t everything. Why should a person waste their time in college if they realize it isn’t what they expected, scholarship or not.
    Are you saying, people should stay in college with a scholarship to please you. Same as you saying Jason is doing things to please his parents and you all have a problem with that. At least Jason knows his parents.

    I actually think Jason left college for himself, since he realized that he would love to do something in music and that something just happened to come his way.

    The scholarships I worked my ass off for only paid for one semester and did not cover books or upkeep. I worked two different part time jobs so that I could complete my education all the way through graduate school. I never applied for student loans.

    Why would anyone excuse an asshole like Jason Cashtro for squandering a full-pop scholarship? What about the kids that were also considered for those funds? Look into how Scholarships work. Maybe then you will see why I am so disgusted by this family of “Travelers.”

    There is another thing that is bothering me about the Cashtrolls. But I will wait for a thread where it might be ore relevant.

    I’m glad my random if useless info comes in handy sometimes.

    Homeless to Harvard was actually a DECENT Lifetime movie, won a couple of Emmys and starred Thora Birch and Robin Wright Penn. It’s a really compelling story, and then at the end, you find out she spent only 2 years at Harvard (also on scholarship) and at least for me, it was a total and complete letdown.

    Bill Gates doesn’t have a degree. He dropped out of MIT. All the money they donate to higher education tends to go to Duke, his wife’s alma mater.

    I wasted my undergrad (and a good deal of my parents’ money). I went back and got an M.A. years later and had a wonderful time, and I also put more effort into it. But I try not to dwell on the fact I should have worked harder when I was younger. It does stick with you, even when you try to not regret…Things like not working harder, even if I can chalk it all up as a “learning experience”.

    I’ve just never understood why people who are so close to finishing drop out, especially if they are on a full-ride. Most likely won’t be there if/when they decide to go back, and yes, could have taken the spot of someone who really wanted it.

    Do you remember that Lifetime movie Homeless to Harvard? The prologue to that film ruined the whole thing. The girl whom the story was based dropped out of Harvard and moved to L.A. Think she may have taken a couple of classes at UCLA or something occasionally after leaving Harvard. Ok. This girl got into Harvard. They made a movie about it. Should have gone and graduated 😉

    SPOON, since Jason decided not to return, I’m sure there was more money available to those you think deserved the scolarship. At least, he didn’t waste the scholarship, when he realized he might have a different goal in life.
    SPOON, that is terrific that you worked your ass off in college to get a scholarship. I was fortunate my parents paid for my college, it still doesn’t mean I got the most out of my college education. For some people if you have a dream or a goal you should reach for it and it may not mean college is always the right choice.
    Bill Gates just screwed around when he went to college and look where he is now. I don’t think he has a degree, although I might be wrong.

    I loved going to college. I had to pay for it myself and worked my ass off to stay on the Dean’s list so that I could get any and every scholarship I could.

    That’s why it pisses me off that this glorified karaoke singer not only squandered this scholarship, but also kept another, maybe more deserving kid, from receiving the benefits of the funds that year.

    Top Idol, college was too much fun. If I had waited a few years I would have learned even more in college. I always look back to the students in my class that were older and they always seemed to get so much more out of the class. I guess if you work for a few years you might be more focused on your goals.
    Yes, you can go back and get an advanced degree, but Jason can also go back and just get a degree if things don’t work out. I think he realized engineering might not be his true goal in life. I’ve heard him say many times that he loves music and anything to do with music. It seems logical that he would pursue that dream. He must have had a passion for music to teach himself how to sing and play the guitar.

  43. hoping for the best permalink
    October 12, 2008 8:59 pm

    I hope Jason does pursue music because I think he’s good at it and he has the rare ability to connect with his audience when he sings. I hope he can develop the discipline he needs and I hope he gets the professional guidance he deserves.

  44. TopIdol permalink
    October 12, 2008 8:58 pm

    I was an idiot when I was 21, but I also learned in a lot of cases, if doesn’t matter what your degree is in. You can always go back for an advanced degree or something different. Point is, if you’re on scholarship and don’t have much longer to go, why not just finish? Gets harder to go back once you get older. And college is kind of fun, ya know?

    But this is starting to make even more sense now, the kid wasn’t even a “singer”. He was a drummer. Maybe his mom wants him to be Phil Collins but with a lot more hair? In any case, it does make sense why he wasn’t a “singer” in the sense of the other contestants.

    Top Idol, maybe he felt like he couldn’t focus on college at this time. I went right after high school, but there are many times I wish I had waited and really tried to figure out what I wanted to do. My degree was in finance and a minor in French, but now I think I would have enjoyed early childhood education. Sometimes at the age of 21 it is really hard to know what really interests you.
    I think Jason has chosen to follow his heart and that seems to be a career in music. Who knows if he will succeed, but it is worth a try.

    October 12, 2008 8:44 pm

    I heard it directly out of his mouth in one of the interviews he did. I believe it was one of the interviews when he first made the Top 24. There were a number of interviews all done the same day and posted on YouTube and it in was one of them. I actually thought “Ought Oh” when I heard it because I found it before he was eliminated and when Sooner & Company were trying to get support at Texas A & M and he kinda dissed college saying a large part of the reason he tried out was because he didn’t want to go back to college. I’ll try to find the link and post it here. Very enlightening.

In all interviews I’ve heard with Jason, he seems very passionate about a music career. I’ve heard him say he wasn’t sure about college because he really wanted to do something with music.

    Hoping you hit the nail on the head! Couldn’t have said it better myself.
    I don’t think Jason was ever all that serious about being on Idol and I don’t know how serious he really is about having a career post-Idol. It is beginning to seem more like something his “family” is pushing than what he really wants for himself. I remember him saying something on tour to the effect that if his life went back to the way it was before he wouldn’t care and that it might actually be nice. I totally agree what he really seems to want is to hang out with his girlfriend and friends and sorta goof off and I don’t know that a CD will ever happen. I don’t think he’s that driven. He’s also said that his parents told him he either had to pursue the music career seriously or go back to college and he didn’t want to go back to college so he tried out for Idol. I think his parents are the ones who are pushing the career. They see the $$$ that can be made and they aren’t about to let him back out now. I hope they’re not pushing Michael the same way although I suspect he saw the goodies Jason got this summer and has decided to try to grab some of it for himself. I also don’t think he or Jackie has the “It” factor that Jason has (and I do believe Jason has “it” but I’m still not sure he really wants “it” either). Time will tell.

    I’m a fan of Jason but he needs to move on from AI and I really hope he is. I want him to have a professional career, assuming that’s what he wants. If he doesn’t then that’s fine too. Go back to school. I’m sure his brother is nice but I’m interested in Jason not Michael. I’m not interested in Jackie either. Or Betsy. I don’t know if Michael or Jackie can sing but Simon pointed out early on that Jason has the “it” factor and I don’t think either Michael or Jackie has it. Just my opinion.

    I’m surprised because on AI Extra after Jason was voted off Michael said he would NEVER try out. He was adamant. What changed his mind? I hope it wasn’t Betsy. If it was, she is starting to make Jeff Archuletta look good by way of comparison.

    One other thing came out on AI Extra. Betsy basically admitted that the family pushed Jason into trying out. They told him he was going to do it and although I’m sure part of him wanted to also I’m starting to wonder. I don’t think he knows what he wants beyond being with his girlfriend and hanging out with his friends. I think he loves music and is good at it but I’m not sure he has the work ethic that someone like David Cook has had all these years. Who knows. The only thing I can be sure of is that Betsy Castro knows exactly what she wants. Whether what she wants is good for her kids remains to be seen.

    Does anyone know if Andrew Cook is trying out this year? I know Fantasia’s brother tried out and did not make it past the early rounds.

    SPOON! replies: Damn, where’s that selective archivist when I need it? I have not posted anything in support of KKKristy that I remember. In fact, do you know how KKKristy got that nickname? I do. I was there.

    Also, do you honestly expect me to appoint myself as spokesperson for an entire web-site of some of the funniest realist I have ever posted with on-line? Ain’t happening. You’ll need to ask them.

    Thanks for the info though. That’s some funny stuff about KKKristy cyber-begging. I can’t wait to see what else has been dug up about her.

    Stoner s says: “For a while you guys we’re talking about how great MJ was cuz he posted a paypal address for Luke Menard which was a good thing but he also told his fans he couldn’t V-blog because he didn’t have a camera or a computer. They ran out and bought it and he still hasn’t V-blogged.”

    SPOON! replies: Michael Johns is a song stealing douche-nozzle. He was complemented for one nice thing that he did? That bothers you? :snortylaugh

    ————————————————-

    Stoner s says: “Like I said before I am not blind Jason’s family has done some things that we’re scandalous, but I personally believe Jason himself is a little too unfocus to be that shady. Which it really doesn’t matter cuz his family is doing enough for all of them”

    SPOON! replies: I guess opinions flip with which attributes a poster needs to apply to make a point. My opinion is that Jason was awarded a college scholarship, this discredits him as a blue-eyed ingenue. He knew exactly what he was doing. The Frauen would do anything necessary in order to view that video, why else would he even bring the comp problem up? Couldn’t he have just been too tired, too busy, etc?
    ———————————————–

    Okay now Stoner s, I wish to ask you a favor. Please separate your posts into paragraphs. I’m not meaning to be insulting, nor am I using this as a debate tactic. It’s just that I work long hours and huge blocks of type give me a headache. TIA

    You know, a lot of Jason’s fans don’t expect him to necessarily become some sort of major supahstah. They want him to be as successful as would make him happy. “Working musician,” playing gigs, making a living doing his thing – if that’s what he wants…great. A lot of awesome music has been put out into the world by people you never hear on the radio – any radio – ever. As long as he puts out an album so I can get him on my ipod, I’m good. If not, I’m sad, but I will get by. Promise, cuz I know you were worried.

    I’m just making this point because this site and others like it do a lot of pointing and laughing at delusional fans devoting themselves to fleeting starlets who are never really going to make it. In reality, it may be you all who miss the point – what exactly do you mean by “making it?” For some of us, it actually is about the music.

    It’s for that reason that I have chosen not to stress over the level of involvement of Jason’s family – which yes, makes me uncomfortable, or some of the actions of his mother – who yes, often strikes me as both terribly tacky and not very bright. I have no control over how Jason chooses to run his career – wish I did, cuz I have some advice for the kid, but I don’t. And I’m pretty sure he’ll put out some music, somehow. If he doesn’t have the kind of career some of his fans want from him…so be it. Maybe he didn’t want it to begin with. Maybe he could never have had it. Maybe he did want it, could have had it, and lost it for himself. As a fan, you might be disappointed, but your expectations have nothing to do with his obligations. If you voted (I didn’t), it was because you liked him. He was already doing something for you. He fulfilled all he was obligated to in the contract between fan and artist. He puts it out there, and if you want it, you buy it. Anything you did for him was of your own volition, and if he didn’t bring the returns you hoped for…why is that his fault?

    I could write a lot more, like about how I only buy into maybe a third of the trash that people write about the Castros (and why, precisely and in detail, I don’t buy into those other two thirds), but it doesn’t really matter, does it? Besides, although IMO Top Idol does keep to a fairly high standard of facts and presentation, a good number of the posters here could easily fail to read intelligently before dismissing me with cries of “Fantard!” and/or “Do you even have a mind, or do you just use your head for storing NUTS, you complete and utter ignoramus???”

    I almost named names and offered some constructive criticism, but I decided that I was, in fact, mainly trying to be mean, and constructiveness would have been an unintended side effect. Still, if you think that you might be a hypocritical, borderline-paranoid conspiracy theorist who often displays a certain childishness and/or bitterness…I don’t know, maybe try proofreading?

    During the tour KLC promised prizes t-shirts, autographed pictures etc. to the person who brought her the best gift or sign. It is all over the internet. Does that not qualify as grifting. My main point was that people are acting like Jason kicked there puppy. Read some of KLC fan forums from during the tour time. She was definitely rewarding the best gift and sign. I also brought up MJ because everyone said it was ok that his fans bought him a laptop and a videocamera, I guess it was a surprise they actually did it after he made it very obvious he wanted one. He also promised V-Blog when he got it anyone seen a V-Blog yet. I have not contributed a dime for a gift to JC or even went to the tour. Really didn’t even vote either. Actually if it were’nt for the writer strike I would’ve watched CSI. But just alot of thing are being told as if they we’re the truth. One other incident, It’s being reported that Castrocopia gave Jason a kindle, they talked about it for about 2 pages, decided the money would be better spent donating to the charity Glow that got mixed up before. The charity serves and cares for children In Haiti. Hurricane Ike destroyed the bridge that was used to get these children food and clothes. I personally think VFTW is a very funny site, but I do think that sometimes if there is news on a contestant or a fanbase that could put them in a good light it doesn’t fit they’re agenda. I have laughed my ass off at the stoner jokes and how thick headed stoner J is. I personally believe someone can be very book smart and still not have a clue. VFTW is a funny site. Lots of AI fans lurk and laugh, but sometimes I think maybe they go just a tad overboard.

    y la hermana de Jason le gusta Juicy Couture y vestidos sin tirantes…incluso antes la quinceanera de ella.

    Muchos regalos y fiesta muy grande para la hermana en dos anos!

    Whoa! You chicks have been busy posting. It took me a while to catch up.

    I had to chuckle at his ethnicity being brought up. I think that’s a bunch of bull-crap. The kids don’t even speak Spanish. They have been raised to embrace good ‘ole American values, like Betsy’s admiration of cheerleading and Jackie’s love of Juicy Couture. It has nothing to do with being Hispanic, and has all to do with Betsy being a domineering stage mom.

    Yes Kettle, I posted that…so? I didn’t post it on here for a reason and now you’re drawing attention to it…

    Why if you are so disgusted by Jason’s action’s with the laptop is your group now all about getting KLC publicity for her new song when she was giving prizes for the best gift.

    Stoner S, what is this about? I would love to know more about this one. Hell, any stories such as this about any of the contestants are worth writing about. I did post a video of MJ receiving a laptop from his fans, but I think its been about it for awhile except for this Castro stuff.

    “If Jason wasn’t asking for a new lap-top? Why did he do a blog entry stating he had a date night video ready but couldn’t upload it because his laptop had died? If you bought that as “innocent” then let me bet you a lap-top that I know where you got your shoes.”

    I believe Jason was genuine when he said that. It was Tuesday, “datenight,” and fans were anxiously waiting for an update from him and he could’nt upload it. He just didn’t wany to disappoint anyone.

    Hello kettle, meet pot! How new and refreshing! I’ve never heard that before! You’re a genius and I’m not just sucking up here. I love your record of my posts here at TopIdol! Keep it up fie-mo! I think I’m in looovvvveee! ❤ ❤ <3333

    *taps microphone* testing – testing – testing… How’s my level? Can you read me here? No? Then I will type my honest opinion very slowly…

    You need to get a life or get a clue to the true meaning of satire. Lighten up and get the words being typed from my fingers in the past. But let’s get a bit serious shall we?

    The entire Cashtro family and suck-ups have enabled scammers to cream money from the fan base with no consequence for their behaviour on their boards or their future events. I won’t name names, cause I’ll typically type Sherry and we all know that turned out well.

    The Cashtro family has attacked a fifteen year old girl because her family was smart enough to have her dreadhead logo copywrited.

    Web talk says that it was odd timing over the CafePress crack-down after Blaker’s design had been used and adopted everywhere? HA! IMHO Betsy was pissed when she got news from the copywrite office that the design had already been recorded. Her attempt at this theft was foiled so Blaker was intentionally humiliated at the DDB.

    The entire Castro family are cyber pan-handling. If Jason wasn’t asking for a new lap-top? Why did he do a blog entry stating he had a date night video ready but couldn’t upload it because his laptop had died? If you bought that as “innocent” then let me bet you a lap-top that I know where you got your shoes.

    The entire Castro family has also…

    Most of the readers of the last comment filled in the blank for themselves. Everyone has something to say. You frustrated DDB members are transfering your anger to Zelda or the “measure of a true fan” BS you post everywhere. Buy his CD when it comes out. Oh, wait… There’s not one is there?

    As for your “why should you be concerned” comments? Guess what? American’s check behind the curtain, we are proud of our neighborhood watches and we fight against injustices where ever we find them. Keep your cultish and churlish behaviour to yourself and off the forums I love. You freaks have ruined too many over the years for me.

    I would normally end with a “so go fuck yourselves” but in this instance I cannot. If you all would quit mastubating to these kids we wouldn’t be having this conversation now would we?

    Zelda, I don’t think the Castos are ruining Jason’s career, but I guess there are a few of you here that do. We will never agree, because you choose to think they are ruining his career and I choose to think they aren’t. There are very few people here. There are many at his my space. I still see he has plenty of fans. But go ahead live in your little fantasy world and go on thinking you know what is best. I don’t agree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    And there is the mature Zelda coming out and calling people names. You are such an intellect you know how to use the word A$$hole.

    Fans have given a lot to help jason have a career. They have talked about him endlessly, they have played his myspace songs endlessly, they have voted for him endlessly, they bought tickets to AI concerts. Fans have invested in his career. Therefore, it should be no surprise that fans get upset when they believe this is simply being thrown away because of a lack of attention to PR problems.

    People can live their lives as they wish. But, this particular person, Jason Castro, made us believe that he wanted a SUCCESSFUL music career. We did our part….and it appears that things are falling apart for no good reason!

    So you can go on and on about the right people have to live their own lives. But, we are talking about a particular person who supposedly WANTS a music career. Of course we will speak up. We are entitled to speak up when we see that what he supposedly was working for and what his fans helped promote was a bonafide music career. We have every right to yell to high heavens about this. It feels like a betrayal to many.

    And as you are someone who really doesn’t care one way or the other, who are you to tell us all about your “live and let live” philosophy as you sit removed up in your “judgmental little ivory tower?

    You just come in and play a role as a peaceful guru type while others really DO care about this. You just love being the oh so cool and calm guy. What an opportunity for you. To make people who really care about someone out to be foolish for having responses to the thing they care about.

    So. why don’t you take your little guru gig somewhere you do care about. Of course, that wouldn’t be nearly as much fun. And you wouldn’t be able to play mother superior in a place where you really cared about what was going on.

    I am sorry, but I see you as the most judgmental of people. At least we CARE about what we are talking about. You just seem to want to be the so aloof judging one.

    It disgusts me. And for me you simply have a fork in you. You are a person who just loves to poke a stick at people who are already bothered by something and tell them that they have no reason to be bothered.

    A$$hole!

    Get lost!
