Just whooooooo are you?

Just an overworked, underloved grad student, clining to any remaining shred of perspective and sanity by scrutinizing the minutae of pop culture.  That makes me a sophisticated and discriminating connoisseur of pop culture, instead of just another schlub sitting on her couch, slurping down the Kool-Aid that the networks keep pouring out.  At least that’s what I keep telling myself.

Nice. So what’s this page about?

The campy deliciousness that is American Idol, of course.  The karaoke.  The Seacrest.  The black cashmere T-shirts.  The hidden flasks at the judges’ table.  The purple velvet jackets.  The shameless shtick.  Teh Prettah.  Your Taylors, your Katharines, your [jazzhands]DAUGHTRYs[/jazzhands]. Oh, and other topics as I see fit to include them, most notably other music.

Do you play favorites?

Yes. And you are more than welcome to, too, in the comments section, as long as you keep it civil.

And just what makes your site different than all those other Idol blogs out there?

Spelling and grammar, for one.  Oh, sure, you’ll find the occasional typo, misspelling, or omitted word. But seriously (and the Redbook tells me it’s perfectly fine to begin a sentence with a conjunction these days), I don’t have any inside scoop, I don’t have a knack for locating gritty blues gems on YouTube, and I don’t have a knowledge of music that spans the decades (much less this decade).  But I do have some commentary to offer, and hey, if you like that sort of thing, you’re more than welcome to stick around.

What the kids are sayin’

"I hate them all. The judges, TPTB, the blatant manipulation, the songs, the contestants, everything. I'm a die-hard Cook fan, but for the love of god, at least try to look like you're enjoying yourself up there! Please? Syesha was awesome but she ruined it by being completely shameless and disgusting. Yes, being on American Idol is exactly like the civil rights movement, except for the part where you're fighting to make the world a better place."

"All I can say after the disgusting display tonight of favoritism towards the mediocrity that is David A. - good luck trying to market and make money off of that kid, American Idol. (Not to mention good luck dealing with his father.) All the teeny boppers may buy up his American Idol coronation single, but they will quickly forget about him before the album comes out. And I shudder to think of a David A. album - song after song of unrelenting sameness and heavy breathing. Why they are pimping him for the win is beyond me."

"This show was simply a hot buttered mess tonight. And Jason "needs to be arrested for what he did to I Shot the Sheriff. But I hope he stays. He amuses me. "
