We’ve made it to Hollywood! Finally…

February 10, 2010

I’ve been looking forward to Hollywood Week. Scary, yes, but the audition rounds are more tedious than amusing and frankly, I would rather hear people deemed talented do horribly as opposed to all those designated trainwrecks. Or single moms. Or survivors of divorce. Oh wait, those are all the ones we’re going to spend the next 3 months of our lives watching.

Ellen DeGeneres is here. I adore Ellen, but I miss Paula Abdul. Couldn’t we have traded in Kara DioGuardi for Ellen? Then everyone would have been happy! Big Pharma, lesbians, housewives, me, you, Quatto the Mole, Oskar…

Alzheimer’s Tragedy Teenager Katie Stevens vs. The Big Skiibowski
Gawker’s Richard Rushfield has been riding the Katie Stevens train since the season premiere. I still contend she only brought her memaw out from the attic for the film crew. Oh, and she’s singing Stevie Wonder’s For Once In My Life. Yes, yes. I know they are given a somewhat limited selection of songs, but can’t we just save all Stevie Wonder for say, an episode of all Stevie Wonder music? Did I also forget to mention OMG SHE IS ONLY 16? Nice, I guess. But I still yawned.

Antonio Wheeler–aka Skiibowski--may have wracked up several criminal violations, however, I think about how much more entertaining the show could be if he were allowed to stick around. And Skiibowski makes his exit.

After the commercial break, we are treated to a tiny montage of cannon fodder. I have no idea who these people are, which means they really, really should have concerned themselves more with exploiting a garden variety family tragedy than singing. I wonder why people insist on singing barefoot, and why some girl is wearing the glasses I had in the 4th grade. I am also disturbed by the fact the judges are now drinking Vitamin Water!


You want to keep reading, right? So keep reading.

Obviously, there are ways to go and I still need to upload photos for tonight’s extra-long (sorry!) recap. It’s late! I want to sleep!!!

Until then…

TAKE A GANDER. The link above…seriously, go forth. It’s a sneak peek of sorts…okay. Now I am just rambling.

    Well tonight wasn’t NEARLY as good as last year’s group show…what with all the Tatiana and Nate Marshall drama. Such a let down. I saw Tourette’s guy get cut…dammitt!!!!

    None of them could touch White Chocolate!!!!

      Oh, and did anyone notice they showed Gokey’s group from last year…man, I hadn’t realized how much weight he’d gained from eating all that mansion food til I saw the svelte Hollywood Gokey.

    I didn’t know where to write this, but it is so funny… Nothing says “my fans are the best, I love them so much” like asking for photos for an acoustic concert ticket. Cool. LINK I think they might end up hiring the guys.

      It was my idea. Ok, not the concert part, but hiring attractive people to sit in the the first few rows at any public event to counter balance the sparkle cows. I suggested that to him, via tweeter, several weeks ago. I am happy he listens to me.

      I know you will think my idea is silly, but it’s only fair. He can’t help it that unattractive people (with the exception of those that frequent here of course) tard over him. Let the cows go to the dessert. NYC deserve pretty.

      Don’t get all preachy about it either. You know how unattractive his fans are. Give the kid a break.

          My 3rd grade teacher instilled this in my head until the end of time:

          Desserts are so good you want 2 of them. (That’s why there are TWO Ss.)

        OK. If it is your idea, I am thousand billion percent behind it dawg.

        But imagine sending your photo to go to a concert and never hearing back. That’s… depressing?

          “But imagine sending your photo to go to a concert and never hearing back. That’s… depressing?”

          That is my “fly on the wall moment”

          Imagine some lame ass 50-year-old. 300-pound sparkle cow waiting by the mail box in her purple spandex unitard and feather boa for her FREE tickets. hahahahah
          And the lamenting that follows. I wish that was a reality show. πŸ™‚

          BTW, is your avitar a stock image or something you created? I really love it.

            Pardon my vulgar avitar. I started a blog and though if people saw that image they would assume it was porn and would be more apt to check it out.
            Q3 is my marketing director. πŸ™‚

            I accidentally drank a bottle of Pinot Noir on an empty stomach. I am not much of a drinker, so I am quite toasted. πŸ˜‰

            It is stock. πŸ™‚ but I don’t want to lose it.

              So who thinks that the sparklecows will send in their 18-year-old granddaughters’ pictures?

              What do you think would happen if they send something that doesn’t look anything like the person who shows up?

              • saskin permalink

                I do. I don’t think anything can happen.

      For shits and giggles I just sent in the most incognito picture where I have on huge aviator glasses, no make up on and the camera is close so you can see the smattering of freckles. If they are seeking anti-glam they’ll pick me.

      If not enough younger, hdtv-friendly actual fans can be found, that casting agency should have a lot of prior clients to fill the seats.

        I just got passport photos that make me look like Ethel Merman after a three-day bender and a bad case of malaria. I think I should send one of those in (I’m sure as hell not using them for my passport) and wait to see what they do with people they don’t want. Like being a control. πŸ™‚

    Hey TI, I can’t figure out how to log in on the new blog… I might just be that stupid today. 😦

      I can’t log in either. 😦

        I don’t think it’s official yet. Last night was a preview.

    I’m not a kid who won fan and I’m upset. WTF? They bussed the kid on every show last season, now they want to bus him on every show this season? Since they already put the bus in reverse, maybe they would like to re-bus Allison too. Tell a girl she has no personality and should beg like Allison.

    I don’t think it was an accident BTW. There were how many kids in Hollywood? 200? 150? Let’s say Kara commented on half of those kids. So they had 75-100 Kara comments to choose from and they chose that one. But in her defense, she is sooo stoopid.

    I think Bowersox is a proxy for Epperly. She is all kinds of cute but has an itsy-bitsy weakness in her singing. They’ll tear her down. Haeley Vaughn should just drop the guitar, she can’t play but has a beautiful voice.

    Boys were all ewww. I’ll probably get that Zefron Beiber guy for the contest. OY.

      Kara is so stupid that she may have actually meant to say Kris, but is incapable of offering a critique without a screwing up the particulars. Remember these Gems…”Studio 57, “Arrosmith’s early stuff like Cryin,” “The guy from Saturday Night Live” I can go on and on.

        Lol…you are probably right, I forgot that Kara was withdrawing from the Bank of Moron. Has anyone ever figured out how she got into Duke?

          She slept with the Dean. Cheated off smart friends. Has influential parents.
