Letters to Idols: Songs of their Birthyear Week

Dear Ramiele Malubay: (“Alone” by Heart) Hey, we were both born on 9/6! (We won’t talk about the year, though.) As for your singing, you have lovely tonsils, but I wouldn’t recommend taking on Heart again. The Wilson sisters didn’t screech like howler monkeys being gangraped by horny, horny hippos.

Dear Jason Castro: (“Fragile” by Sting) I still think you’re a truly gifted musician, but this just isn’t your venue. Okay, it’s like this—I see you as a literary novel … Read More »

Letters to the Idols: Beatles Week (Again)-Part 1

Dear American Idol Producers: Beatles two weeks in a row is totally uncool. I know last week was technically songs written by Lennon or McCartney, not necessarily performed by them, but that’s semantics. When the hell is ABBA week, dudes?

Dear Amanda Overmeyer: (“Back in the U.S.S.R.”) That was a little weak, but considering you had to Beatle-ize yourself for the second week in a row, it wasn’t horrible. I think they should make you sing a ballad, though. And … Read More »

It’s a wee bit long, so I’ll put it after the jump.… Read More »

Quick miscellanea

I’m running like a mad chicken today, so forgive the post and run.

Karen Scott: has temporarily relocated here. And there’s a wonderful post linking to a tearjerker post you don’t want to miss.

Big Brother: Didn’t take long for James to throw his soulmate under the bus, did it? And I think they should pull Natalie out of the house. She is seriously :censor: in the head and I think her obsession with Matt is not on the … Read More »

More Letters to the Idols: 80's week for the girls

Dear Asia’h Epperson: (“I Wanna Dance with Somebody” by Whitney Houston) I’m going to borrow from Simon’s stock cue cards and cry karaoke. But really good karaoke sung by a reasonably sober person. I might be slightly biased, however, by the fact that 1) I apparently still absolutely detest that song as much now as I did in the 80’s and 2) every time I see your name I think your mother must have been one of those futuristic romance … Read More »
