Late evening Jonny.

Missed the show so appreciate the thread to catch up.

Sorry to see Hollie, Skylar in the bottom 3. Like both of them.

and the smell of Ben-Gay wafting in the air....

LOL! Nah, RK's right. They'd fill their Pat Boone tubs with Icy Hot. It's odorless :)

Hi, Twin! :)

The lack of media interest was astonishing.

Now that you mention it, other than a passing glimpse of the Pope on FOX, I haven't heard or seen anything about his visit to Cuba.

I can however tell you the life story of George Zimmerman :-|

I survived the Northridge quake of 1994 - I wouldn’t want to be in that mansion during a large tremor.

Or even a small one! It looked like it was barely hanging onto the hill.

I just watched the show from last night and now watching the results....all I can say is wow! They all did really well. My least favorites were DeAndre and Hollie, but still they were not bad, just not up to par of the others. My favorites are Phillip, Elise and Jessica. Would love to see them in the final 3. I love HeJun but mostly it is personality. :) Anxious to see who goes.

DeAndre singing—it sounds like something from Jurassic Park

Good morning, jonny! I'm on my "morning after" Idol run......

So disappointed that DeAndre is going to sing another week. His screetching through an entire song is just....just.....ear-covering! UGH!

I think the drunk Canadian singing Bohemian Rhapsody in the back of the cop car sings better than DeAndre.

Funny you should mention it....we actually did have a small quake last night, around 11pm Pacific (3.3) in So Cal. I wonder if the House on the Hill shifted off those weak looking stilts?

DeAndre sings way too high and I can’t believe they haven’t coached him to take it down a bit. Kathering McPHee’s mom is a coach. Why isn’t she telling him dogs are howling? Chalk on blackboard if you can’t sing in range people are comfortable listening in.

Mad Men is very faithful to the 60's..everyone smoked..incessantly..remember it was the era of BIG Tobacco, and tobacco companies were the largest advertisers on TV..they had tremendous power over the airwaves..and everyone drank.....to a fault..the 3 martine lunch was the norm..

There's a classic tale.. about a memo that one advertising company suposedly sent to all its executives..( I think I can remember it:

"Management requires that all employees on company expense accounts do not drink vodka. Any other liquor is permissible. Because vodka is odorless, and thus it is impossible to gtell if you have if fact been drinking, we would not want the clients to think that the stupid statements coming from your mouths were your real ideas, and not because you were in fact bombed at the time."

Kick Jessica!! She fake cries also! Besides, there is something about her that annoys the heck out of me....

I agree with you. I can't put my finger on it, but there is something that needles me about Jessica, too. She doesn't really emotionally connect or something. Extremely talented girl, but something is just missing.

What is so funny, is I can’t even tell were it’s coming from, but there must be a vent or something. It’s really only happened a handful of times. One time that I remember, I had Photoshop, Illustrator and Lightroom open AND my photobucket page with a bunch of gifs all going. Those programs are huge and my MacBook seemed kind of angry about the whole thing. Once I shut down the photobucket page, it stopped.

I know some people in advertising and with the exception of the smoking, not much has changed. One agency in Chicago has a full bar onsite- literally a floor of their office building is set up like a pub. One of the departments in another agency has Margarita Fridays. This is on top of very boozily celebrating every single holiday, not to mention client freebies that are sent over...

It makes me tired just thinking about it. LOL

That day I did have a lot. I have 3 design classes this semester, which is a lot more work then it sounds like. Frequently I've got 2-3 projects all due within a day or two of each other.

I'm watching the original version of Hairspray with Ricki Lake (not that travesty of a remake with John Travolta) and I really think Ryan Seacrest based his whole deal on the original Corny Collins. From the clothes to the hair to the voice, it's all Seacrest about 10 years before there was a Seacrest.

Seems fame hasn't gone to Scotty's head...yet at least.

Scotty McCreery to Attend North Carolina State University

By: Amy Sciarretto | 5 hours ago tasteofcountry.com

Scotty McCreery is a legitimate country superstar at the tender age of 18. He won Season 10 of ‘American Idol’ in 2011 and was just awarded a platinum plaque for ‘Clear as Day,’ which celebrates a million copies sold. He’s performed on several late night TV shows and has embarked on major tours. But underneath it all, he’s still a country boy at heart who plans to further his education. He confirmed to CMT Radio (thanks, mjsbigblog) that while he was accepted to all four colleges that he applied to, he will be attending North Carolina State University in Raleigh. The ‘Water Tower Town’ singer and ACM nominee likely picked this particular learning institution because it’s his father’s alma mater. He is also considering transferring to a school in Nashville after two years at NCSU in Raleigh. Plenty of celebrities have attended college in the middle of their careers with no negative consequences, so McCreery’s decision to hit the books and earn a degree despite having a red-hot career is not surprising. He certainly honed his multi-tasking skills on last summer’s ‘Idol’ tour, recording his record in between gigs, promotional appearances, interviews and more. So he can obviously handle college and a career. Congrats to Scotty McCreery on another rite of passage. Perhaps he can perform concerts on campus for his classmates.

Swingers, orgies and porn... the American Idol mansion’s sordid past revealed

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2124008/The-American-Idol-mansions-porn-past-revealed.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

When the young hopefuls vying for the title of American Idol 2012 spilled into their new home, a sprawling mansion the Hollywood Hills replete with colour-changing jacuzzi, they were understandably excited.

All come from modest backgrounds, many from homes that have little... so it was a dream come true to be able to live like a film star or music legend.

But will they feel differently knowing that they’ve slotted into the sordid space vacated by porn stars and the crew who filmed their salacious antics?

Scroll down for video...

Dream home: The American Idol contestants are excited to be living in a Hollywood mansion, but little do they know... it was built to house porn films

The mansion currently housing the top nine finalists on Idol is the same place Playboy TV shot season two of its near-the-knuckle sex show Swing, according to TMZ.

They go on to describe Swing as show about couples who move into a house with the sole purpose of ‘living out their erotic curiosities’ through swinging.

Suddenly that jacuzzi doesn’t seem as appealing.

Scotty seems to have his priorties straight. There aren't many people that could handle that kind of success and even think about going to college. Good for him.

I'm shocked :)

When they first got there, a few of them started jumping on a big outdoor mattress. That thing is probably crawling with all kinds of "mystery substances".

“Time After Time” - Cyndi Lauper
“Wind Beneath My Wings” - Bette Midler
“Flashdance... What A Feeling” - Irene Cara
“If You Don’t Know Me By Now” - Simply Red
“I Like It” - DeBarge
“How Will I Know” - Whitney Houston
