Idol Quickies: February 02, 2010

February 2, 2010

Higher Love my ass! The oddest pre-game entertainment ever β€” Daughtry, Queen Latifah and…Steve Winwood?

New-fangled We Are The World includes Jennifer Hudson, Jordin Sparks and…Katherine McPhee? (Yo, Randy Jackson. KATHARINE MCPHEE AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN.)

Yahoo! Music’s Lyndsey Parker interviewed Adam Lambert. Make sure and peruse the comments for crazy. Actually, I really DO want to go watch this when I get a chance, because he talks about Burning Man. (Oh, please, Sparkle Herd, don’t start buying tents, faux-fur vests and Poland Spring.)

Scott Brown just won a Senate seat, but he wants his daughter, Ayla Brown, to get another shot at American Idol. And here I was waiting for him to meet up with Rep. Barney Frank and FILIBUSTER RIGHT OUT OF THOSE PANTS.

Some other stuff happened…but I have to run!

    I like “Bowersoxuals” the best, sour. “Bowerbitches” is pretty clever as well, though. πŸ™‚

    I thought I got her. This is what saskin posted:

    “OK then. If you have someone in mind declare it before the 17th. If your guy/gal gets in top 24, you have β€˜em. If not you will be assigned someone randomly. Does that work?

    Names (preferred idol): Sherena, Erinnthered, 8sourcandy(Crystal Bowersox) deez, edge, Lauren (John Park), Margie, Saskin, Trish, blacklisted, Mithra (Todrick Hall), jukejoint, pandora, pattyluponey.

    That is 14. We still need 10 more volunteers. If we don’t get more people to join, maybe we can have 2 idols each and two levels of loserness?”

    I have been very busy with tard projects, I don’t have time to read the fine print in every post. πŸ™‚

    Oh well, if you want to ruin Crystal Bowersox’s chances of winning by denying me the opportunity of making her into a win-worthy STAH, then that’s your prerogative.

        Yep. I talked too soon. This is TI’s blog, TI’s rules. I didn’t know whether she was in or just allowing us to play the game.

        Even though I’m competitive, I really hope you get Bowersox, Sour. I’m rooting for you both. (But I’ll win, I have my own strategery)

          February 3, 2010 11:35 am

          You know deez? I don’t know what you are trying to prove. He is not an international stah. It does not mean anything that he is in an Asian country, on TV, singing a capella, promoting a concert. He is not a stah. And he is especially not an innernahsional stah ’cause his name does not rhyme with modem and his last name is not Lambert. Don’t make me throw a tantrum here.

            LOL! I just listened to the Manila Press conference @ MJ’s. Kris’ very first question had to do with Adam, you can hear the person filming say, “Oh God” when the question is asked.
            Poor Kris*sigh*…maybe one of these days, HBD….

    Wow, I hope when they write the History of Rock and Roll, they correct the error that Rolling Stone made about Burning Man. You know in the chapter that Adam gets right after Elvis and the Beatles.

    It was pretty funny to think magic mushrooms would make you want to audition for Idol. But yes Rolling Stone is a pretty sad joke these days.

        I’m waiting to be assigned someone at random. I could definitely write faux razzle dazzle about the Fetus or the frizzy blonde-haired girl from Iowa or the one with the name that sounds like Israeli chewing gum. Got any Vered Didi Benami? Nah, I don’t like that stuff.

          Yeah, I thought it was going to be a random thing after they announce the top 24. I want a guy, that’s all.

          Do we get to choose our bad icons, or are they chosen for us?

          • saskin permalink
            February 3, 2010 10:51 am

            Let’s put it out for vote. Simple majority wins. Vote until Idol tonight.

            Random or do we get to pick?

            I vote random because we’ll see more pimping (I think?) in the coming Hollywood episodes and no one will want the pimped ones to not look like a bona fide tard.

              If the choosing isn’t totally random …I want the fugliest, most repulsive dude of the bunch. (give me this year’s Gokey) haha. If not, anybody will work!

                  I think it’s up to whoever had the idea. Saskin? Or Top Idol, since she was coming up with ways to make this work for us.

                  It’s kind of a done deal that 8Sour gets the Bowersox, though, since she already avatared her. (Damn it. I wanted the hippy girl who doesn’t comb her hair and has Sox in her name!)

                    I picked a fashion victim? Her forehead seemed so promising.

                    I am trying to come up with the lamest fan group name ever. Help me pick…

                    Crystalmethheads
                    Crystards (an omage to Kris)
                    Soxpuppets
                    BowWows
                    Bowersoxuals
                    Bowersoxers
                    Bowerbitches

                    I can see this already getting out of hand as I imagine a theme song parody. Bringing Soxy back….I want your Sox…..Sox and Candy OMG!

                    “in platform double suede yeah
                    there she was like disco lemonade
                    I smell sox and sourcandy here, mmm”

                    Needless to say, she will be eliminated during Hollywood week.

                  I’ll take two if you want me to take two, but otherwise I don’t care. I don’t understand why PissWarden isn’t playing, though. She seemed to really love us. (Sarcasm.)

                    You could be sitting in the Bowersox Box, where Bowersoxual Healing happens every day to Bowersoxers.

                      We can wait until our Idols get actual fanbases and then steal names from their actual fans. I am sure they will be more ridiculous than anything we could come up with.

                      EpperLepers is perfect. hahahahah!!!!!

                      I am leaning towards Crystards. Because you stick with what WINS!

                      BowerBitches, is a close second.

                      Crystallions is appealing though.

    In the interview, Adam says that the Burning Man story was manufactured by Rolling Stone. He told them he had an epiphany that he wanted to do something with his life not that he decided right then and there to try out for Idol. That made Lyndsey sad. I liked the interview though as about 10/14 minutes were about MUSIC!

    • TopIdol permalink
      February 2, 2010 6:54 pm

      Actually, I’ve heard that before. I think he even told that to Details.

      I was hoping he might actually talk about his other experiences there. I don’t care what drugs he did or any epiphanies he had. That was all such obnoxious bullshit, anyway. Another nail in Rolling Stone’s coffin.

                      I actually tried to invent a face antiperspirant because I hate sweat so much. Especially at the hairline.

                      And by “actually tried to invent” I mean once, on vacation, I applied clear Secret to my hairline to prevent sweat hair. It was an epic fail. My hair was weird for days.
