Last night I caught myself watching a bit of America Has Talent for the second time. I don't know if I'm catching bad acts or shows, but all I can think each time I see it is 'no they don't!' A juggler that can't juggle? A guy that plays songs on his teeth? A hulahooping transvestite? And I guy that sometimes catches eggs in his mouth? Sheesh.

I hope there are better acts, and I've just had the unfortunate timing to miss them all. I am glad I kept it on in the background though, the end of the show (or end for me *g*) had BMG rocking out Baba O'Reilly! Have I ever mentioned how huge of a Who fan I am? They are my number one, all time favorite band. Watching the blue men kick it and the audience getting in to it, I realized just how much it is going to hurt for me not to see them when they come through town. If I wasn't completely behaving myself last night I would be $400 poorer, and 2 tickets richer. This will be the third time I don't get to see them in concert *sigh*

Rockstar: Supernova. Now this is more my type of music*. And I don't think I could be any happier at the voters' choice this week. Finally! I've liked Dilana since the beginning, but lately her voice has been getting on my nerves. Let's cut back on the butts a bit sweetie. Hubby is disgusted with the music that they are looking to perform, after the unveiling with Dilana on Wednesday he compared them to Poison. (HAHAHA). Being a Metallica fan (the way back kind) hubby is disgusted with Jason. Going from Flotsam and Jetsam to Metallica to this? He does crack me up though, that boy cannot hide his feelings.

* - when compared to American Idol. Doubt I'd watch another series.

Arby's commercials: Am I the only one that thinks it looks like everyone has a penis floating over their heads in these commercials? Who was the marketing genius there?
Who does she think she is?
meh

I've resisted getting into any reality shows except Survivor. And from catching the odd Idol outtake, I don't think I'm missing much.

Re: Arby's - I hadn't really seen that. Until Now. Thank you very much.

Boo

Heh. Sorry Boo. Now you can feel my pain, seeing it every time. Most of the time I'm like, 'WTF kind of commercial is this? Oh - Arby's'

I seem to watch one season of each and never go back. Watched AI last time 'cos of Chris Daughtry. Rockstar is def. more rock, so I can handle it.

I love ROckstar Supernova and I thought it was really cool the way Dilana started the show by kinda hiding how attractive she is and how feminine she could be - initially winning everyone over on talent and versatility. This week though I was really disappointed with Cat's in the Cradle. I grew up with a huge Cat Stevens fan and the song tells a story - which she messed up the lyrics to twice. I couldn't believe how impressed the band seemed with it. What was funny was I liked how Storm redid I Will Survive - it was the first thing she's done that I really like. I'd have rather seen how much more Dana could improve I think they should have kept her a couple of more weeks and sent Zayra home sooner. Wow, I didn't think any of my friends watched!

I'm sitting here nodding at everything you said. Hubby and I totally disagree about Storm, but I thought she did a good job with what she had. I mean she couldn't do disco. I'm glad too she stuck by her performance.

I was wondering if it was a mistake for Dilana to be turning on the charm as it were now. I do love her 'tude though - 'send the rest home' *g* I too wasn't so impressed by Cat's in the Cradle, the original gets me every time, and her version was 'meh'.

And I couldn't believe Magni did Creep! Lukas kicked that and Magni couldnt' follow.
