American Idol Journal – Week 10 HOLLIE CAVANAGH IS GONE!

At some point my prediction of Hollie‘s departure was bound to be correct, I honestly thought it was bound to be correct many weeks ago however!  I think of Colton Dixon and Elise Testone at a time like this and…

American Idol Journal – Week 6

AKON is the guest mentor, he seemed to offer only good things about each contestant, I’m suspect when a mentor won’t speak of the challenges their mentorees have.  Tommy Hilfiger was featured in the beginning of the show emphasising the…

Netflix Friday!

This week’s Netflix Friday is another interesting political documentary, “Loose Change 9/11, An American Coup”.  You’ll come to your own conclusions, I certainly have an opinion about it at this point, having seen it for the third time. It’s a…

Serious Alternatives to Cable or Satellite TV

I am reexamining my television viewing habits, not so much ‘when’ of my viewing routine but the cost vs cheaper alternatives. Much to my surprise I have discovered that most of the major networks offer their normal programming online for FREE! You just don’t get to watch it for free the same week it originally airs. Hmmm… I can live with that.

In time, that too found it’s way into my real view mirror.

American Idol Journal – Week 2…Shannon Magrane is GONE!

So, first called to center stage, Phillip Phillips, Skylar Laine, Joshua Ledet and Elise Testone. If a contestant doesn’t make a connection with the fans early in the show their prospects are very limited on American Idol. Based on last nights performances, all four of these singers should have been sent to the next round without much fan fare. As it turns out Elise will spent another week in the bottom, this time it’s the fabled bottom three.

American Idol Journal – WEEK 5 PIA TOSCANO IS GONE!

CAN WE VOTE THE JUDGES OFF? Once again I’m saddened by the judges comments. If you were Stefano Langone you have to be feeling like the judges are truly NOT in your corner. My advice to him from now on… ignore what they say and go with what has worked for you.
