Obama = Good, America = Stupid

April 29, 2009

obama8Tonight, as I was driving in the car, a news man on NPR (90.9 in Boston) said that today, ahead of Obama’s 100 Day speech, was like Christmas for the White House.  Chrysler was about to be bailed out by Fiat.  The Stock Market was up 2%.  And Obama’s budget passed.  Hell, even Arlen Spector (who I happen to think is a total ass clown) decided that now was a good time to be a Democrat.  He’s like a stock analyst that changes his rating from Sell to Buy only after the stock has gone up 1 billion percent.  (Please hold.  I forgot where I was going with this rant.  Be back in 5.)  Oh Oh Oh.  Right.  OK, so tonight everything seems to be going well for Obama.  His Q & A with the press was smashing.  Good, thoughtful answers.  You look at Obama and you think “wow, America seems to be on the right track.”  Yup, then you go and watch Idol.  It’s like an emotional rollercoaster.  You feel great after Obama, then you watch Idol and it drags you all the way down.  Hell, it’s like your car just about came off the track.  What the hell is wrong with America?  Really?  How can people think he should be in the bottom 3, let alone the bottom 2?  It’s just insane.  (Side note: I love when Paula says something is Crazy.  Yeah, that helps.)  Anyway, Adam in the Bototm 3 totally destroys and good-will that Obama spent the evening buidling up.  Ugh.  Makes me crazy.

moonOh, and now Jamie Foxx is a rapper?  Really?  I thought he was a comedian/actor?  I didn’t realize 2009 was “pick a career out of your ass year.”  In that case, I’m going to be an astronaut.  Yup, I now work for NASA.  Sorry GWK, but I figured it would be an easy jump from Investment Managment to Astrophysics.  It worked for Jamie, it’ll work for me.  See that moon up there?  Yeah, I discovered that shit.

Adios Matt (finally).  Here are your damn results.  Now I’m all worked up.


The Man In White

April 28, 2009

woody-wesley-and-perezSince it’s nearly midnight, and I’m just finishing up watching Idol (take that MJ @!), I decided to do a word association blog.  I’m going to list all the contestants, and throw down my 1 word or phrase thought for each as I watch the end of show recap.  This ought to be entertaining.

Kris – Seacrest

Allison – White Men Can’t Jump

Matt – Gone-er

Danny – SteGold

Adam – Wow


So, now that we’ve done that, let me go back and explain.

Kris – Seacrest – I thought he was dressed as though he borrowed a suit from Ryan

Allison – White Men Can’t Jump – Her voice reminds me of the chick from White Men Can’t Jump

Matt – Gone-er – I keep forgetting he’s still  in this.  Not a good thing.  He’s clearly leaving this week.

Danny – SteGold – This will be revelaed at a later time

Adam – Wow – The dude dressed in white is clearly taking this whole thing down.  Last week I thought it would be Kris that would challenge him.  This week, I tought it might be Danny.  But I just don’t think either of them has enough gas in the tank to pass Adam.

p.s.  I know this blog post kind of sucks, but it’s late, I’ve been working all day, and I don’t give a shit if you don’t piss your pants from laughter.

Open Letter to Matt Giraud

April 15, 2009

Dear Matt,
If I might use this forum to offer you a few suggestions. First, congratulations on being the first person in Idol history to be saved. Not only are you screwing up my pool, but, as Simon said, you have no shot of winning the competition. So now, when America screws up (as we always do) and votes Adam off in third place, we have you to thank for him not being the one to be saved. I hope you can live with that.

So now, my suggestions. Go play the lottery. Why not? Maybe buy a scratch ticket? Make sure you get one of those Red Sox scratch tickets where you can win season tickets for life. I’m sure you’ll win, and Sully from Southie who plays every day, with money he begs for on the streets while coming off his double shift in the coal mines to support his 14 children (who are blind by the way), will have to keep watching the Sox on his 9″ black and white TV. That seems fitting. Also, I highly suggest you go try and get on the Price is Right. It’s in Hollywood, right down the street from where you are. You’re bound to get picked. You probably won’t even have to wear an old school “I Heart Bob Barker” shirt. And you’re bound to guess the actual retail price correctly. And on top of that, I’m sure you’ll get the Showcase Showdown exactly correct and win both showcases.

Just seems like that kind of day for you, huh Matt? But hey, good luck in the rest of the competition.
