Tonight, we come together as a nation to welcome back American Idol. Excited doesn’t begin to describe it. I am geeked as usual to see who will rise to the top and which fans I will piss off the fastest. (It’s been a rocking year Archuleta people!)

I will be playing American Idol bingo once again. I wanted to update the card to factor in the new judge, Kara Dioguardi, but the computer is in the hospital, and with it, my precious blogging documents. For now, we’ll stick with the old card and if you’re tech and/or cut and paste savvy feel free to add a few new squares. Here are some suggestions:

-A tie among the four judges

-Infighting between Paula and Kara

-A contestant calls home after getting a Golden Ticket

Also, I like to yell “Seacrest Out!” when I get a bingo. It really spices up the night.

Any other ideas? Let’s dish about it tomorrow in the Hump Day Update

I am a geek about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. I love the pageantry and tradition of the whole thing. When I was little, I would sit down in front of the TV in the family room and write down every float that went by and rank my favorites. Now-a-days I’m more fascinated by the Broadway performances, as those 3 minute snippets are the closest I’ve been to the Great White Way. And who doesn’t love giant balloons and Santa Claus? It’s a really great way to spend a few hours on a cold and (hopefully) snowy morning.

But things have been on a downturn lately. The celebrities who used to make appearances are few and far between. I guess the heavyweights are less inclined to miss dinner at home with the fam. Instead, the viewing public is left with the dregs of Hollywood. In the line-up this year? David Archuleta, The Cheetah Girls, and Miley Cyrus. Thinking of it makes the throw-up in my mouth a little.

I know little kids are big parade watchers (hell, I was one) and most of the floats, balloons, etc., are targeted to their tastes, but I suppose it’s just depressing to see what the “kids these days” are going ga-ga for.

There are a few bright spots, but they probably won’t be singing live. Kristen Chenoweth (Pushing Daisies), James Taylor and Darius Rucker (better known as Hootie) are all signed on to perform.

Hopefully the marching bands will drown out Miley and David and James can do a long set with songs from his lovely new album. But then again, this is Thanksgiving and that would be a Christmas miracle.

Frankly, I don’t which corn tribute I am more offended by:

Vice-Presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin:

Or American Idol runner-up David Archuleta:

Scary! And a-maize-ing!

As of tomorrow, David Cook will own 11 spots on the Billboard Hot 100. He is the first artist ever (at least in the Nielsen Soundscan era) to debut 11 songs in the same week.


  • Archuleta doesn’t have 11 songs on the Top 100.
  • After a rocky season, American Idol proves it can still pack a punch.
  • Cook seems like a nice guy, he’s a fun performer.


  • We’ve got 100 spots to take the current pulse of popular music. David Cook owns 11 of them.

Even Idol fans might admit that’s overkill…actually they probably wouldn’t.

For the good of the contest, music, and the remaining months of a boy’s childhood, I am rooting for David Cook to win American Idol tonight.

Disagree, write messages in all caps, call me tone deaf, call me stupid, say what you will. Winning this is not in the cards for him. Let him grow up, let him find a passion for music rather than a talent for it. Once he’s inspired, no doubt his music will be too.

And remember, coming in second isn’t a death sentence, not even close. Clay Aiken is promoting a hit album right now while Taylor Hicks just got dropped from his record label and is playing Teen Angel in Grease on Broadway.

Whether you love David Archuleta or you hate him, you know the right thing to do. Support David Cook in his effort to be your next American Idol.
