Blog Summer Concert Series #5

Do you like this feature?  Let me know!

– Fresh off his “Family Guy” appearance last night, Rick Astley with “Never Gonna Give You Up”  (I know I posted this several months ago…but it’s the Blog Hero.)

– It’s a hot song these days because of American Idol, but it’s been a personal favorite for quite some time…Robin Thicke’s “When I Get You Alone.”

– Queen’s forgotten classic “’39”

– Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger”

– I might need to revisit The Approved List after Nelly Furtado’s “Say It Right”

– Turn up the volume with “Headstrong” by Trapt

– And let’s bring it in with “Will I Ever Make It Home” by Ingram Hill!

Blog Hero #2 – Edwin McCain

Based on the success of Blog Hero Rick Astley, now redubbed Original Blog Hero Rick Astley, the time has come to announce the NEW Blog Hero.

What constitutes a blog hero?

– Musician or Actor

– Cult following

– Reek of Awesomeness

So with that being said, I proudly announce Blog Hero #2 – EDWIN McCAIN!

Let’s take a listen to his two songs thatI know you know:

Be on the look-out for more from your reigning Blog Hero, Edwin McCain!

American Idol – Top 9 – RESULTS

Last night was American Classics night and now it’s time to send someone home!

–  Seacrest welcomes us and previews the madness.

–  Recap of last night.  I watched it last night, so I fast forward.

–  Sponsored music video butcher job is “One Love.”

Here’s how it should sound:

–  Whoa, whoa, whoa!  Kermit D. Frog makes a cameo.  He says he loves being green, TOTALLY contradicting himself:

–  The Top 9 are pre-divided:

– Group One: Beatbox Blake, Last Chris, Queen Sanjaya

– Group Two: Hot Haley, Gina, Phil

– Group Three: Jordin, Haley, LaKisha

– Group Three is, of course, not the bottom three.  That was brain surgery there…

– Group One is safe, as well.  Hot Haley, Gina, and Phil are on the chopping block!

– We meet last week’s Stupid Trivia Winner, flowing nicely into this week’s Stupid Trivia Question.

– Allstate has joined the “Idol Gives Back” parade.  Cool enough.

– Tony Bennett was supposed to sing, but got sick, so Michael Buble fills in.  He really is a throwback to another generation.  Good stuff.

– Buble confesses he still votes for Skankilicious.  That’s a good one, but still not enough to give him Blog Hero Status.  That is reserved for Rick Astley!

– Back with the Bottom Three: Hot Haley, Gina the Good Witch, and Phil.

– Phil is safe, meaning either the eye candy or one of my guilty pleasures will be going home!

– The judges are wary to criticize them…well, except for See-moan.  He isn’t shocked at all.

– America Voted almost 33 million times.

– HOLY CRAP—Gina goes home??????  Not cool.  She’s having trouble keeping it together.

– OK.  We’re to the point where it doesn’t really matter who goes home in what order.  Everyone has “made it” now.  But seriously, Gina has much more talent and future than Hot Haley or the Queen.  But this is the most messed-up season ever.

Thanks for reading…pass it along!

The Continued Rick Astley-ization of America

This afternoon, I was at my neighborhood Trader Joe’s, purchasing an assortment of fresh, frozen and dried fruit.  Good times, I say.

In the store they play a variety of music, a pretty decent mix.  I’ve always been entertained when I’m in there.  Well, entertained enough to keep going back from fresh, frozen and dried fruit.

Upon gathering my desired items, I got in the longest cash register line.  (Don’t hate…there was a cute girl in front of me!)

And what came over the system?  Blog Hero Rick Astley!

Just another instance that Rick Astley is really taking over the United States, 15 years after he was originally popular!

Anyone up for a Rick Astley comeback album???

Equal Time for Sanjaya Fans.

OK, I think I’ve made my opinion on Sanjaya quite clear.  I think he belongs watching American Idol from his sofa at home instead of being on the show.

However, he definitely has his supporters…which is why he’s made it so far.

I say, “to each their own.”  Some people still don’t care for Chris Daughtry, who I rooted for from his audition.

In the interest of equal time, please check out the very impressive http://www.sanjayafannetwork.com website.

Now, not everyone like Sanjaya.  Trust me, I’m one of them.  But the following photo, uncovered by webmaster Clint, is AWESOME:

And on that note, have a great Hump Day, dear reader!  Spread the URL and I’ll see you back here later tonight for the results show recap!

To help you make it through the day, here’s an oldie but a goodie, dedicated to Blog Friend Andrea!
