Random Thoughts

  • My Muppet was robbed. This is the fatal flaw of American Idol. Gazillions may watch it, but the overwhelming majority of people who vote are teenage girls. Teenage girls believe they have nothing in common with Melinda, who is so, so, ancient – at 29 years old. They identify with Jordan, who, in case you haven’t heard, is 17. They want Blake to take them to the Prom (or dance in angsty rebellion with them at the Anti-Prom). The fact that Melinda is the best singer of the bunch – whatever. Who said this show was about singing?
  • Paul Wolfowitz is not a pretty man. Shouldn’t we be asking how he ever got a girlfriend he could unethically promote?
  • +5 points to Brad Pitt for not getting something trite on tattooed on his arm. -4 points for getting something obscure and vaguely pretentious. -10 points to me for caring.
  • I hope you’ve marked your calendar for June 8th! OFU will be playing the glamorous Red Line Tap as part of the June Cake Chicago show. Come on out and play with us!

    A moment of silence for The Muppet. LOVED HER.

    Real question – will there be actual cake at Cake Chicago and will KP get to sit on it? ‘Cause that would be kinda fun.

    The vote off of Mindy Doo made me lose what little faith I had in my fellow Americans. However, I find comfort in the fact that American Idol history shows that the 3rd runner up is in pole position to get a great record deal. Just look at Elliot Yamin and his new chompers.
