The kinder & gentler American Idol seems to be surviving without Simon Cowell. I have to admit I’m surprised I still like it. Simon really made it for me. Luckily, Steven Tyler is pretty entertaining. It was Motown night last night & I think most of the singers did a really
good job. This season seems to have some of the best singers they’ve had on the show in a while. There’s a couple of them the judges really like that I can’t get on board with though. Scotty has talent but I don’t get the hype. An okay voice & now referring to himself in third person. Really? Not cool. I also have to say that Jacob, while clearly a lot of fun, is so inconsistent that he shouldn’t be garnering so much praise. In the words of Randy – “Pitchy, dawg.” If you’re watching, who do you think can win this season?
Forgot to mention this the other day when I saw The Lincoln Lawyer. Gotta bone to pick. If you’re going to show up at the theater 10 minutes after the movie is scheduled to start, please don’t look so shocked when you find there aren’t any good seats left. This never ceases to amaze me. People will come stand in the aisle, staring slack-jawed at all the people, amazed that anyone besides them could have wanted to see this movie on a Saturday evening. Then, some have the nerve to ask people to scoot down or scrunch in so they can sit together. Don’t even consider asking me to do that. Get there on time & you’ll have your choice of seats. Why bother those of us smart enough to arrive early? Whew, glad to get that off my chest.
Almost the weekend! Hope you have some fun plans cooking!
