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.
LOL! Nah, RK's right. They'd fill their Pat Boone tubs with Icy Hot. It's odorless :)
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 :-|
Or even a small one! It looked like it was barely hanging onto the hill.
I don't blame you. That was a big production for someone who has zero talent.
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.
Now that is funny!
He can be my husband then. :)
My Mac has no fan (I think)...I have never heard a peep out of it.
I listened, too...have been singing it all day. :)
Command A highlights everything...I learned that neat trick from the Mac guys on the support line. I used to call them every day in the beginning. They are so nice and helpful...and in the US, not India. :)
And hello to you, Sir Jon!
I should have had them covert my files over. Also, the stupid easy games that come free aren’t available now.
You mean like solitaire? I just found one on line and put it in my favorites. Garage Band and iMovie are pretty groovy...one day I will learn how to use them. :)
It won’t accept my Zuma game I purchased years ago but still play. Oh well.....
Morning, Lil & Big :)
I didn't understand anything about Minoj. I don't understand how she's even a celebrity.
LOL! She's not even qualified to do that. She was "singing" with her lips closed and holding the microphone above her head.
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?
Next time will go in another direction.
I call her Icky Minaj. She had to sleep her way into that singing gig.
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.
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."
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.
LOL! Yes, he can be Mr. Didi!
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
Do you mean the fake crying she does when her face changes complexion and tears start rolling down her cheeks?
Wow, you had a lot going on! (very excited about my new husband)
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.
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. Hes performed on several late night TV shows and has embarked on major tours. But underneath it all, hes 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 its his fathers 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 McCreerys 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 summers 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
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".
The next theme week will be songs from The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas!
Well that certainly explains some of the strange ads I see. I always wonder how they got airtime and if someone got fired over it.

I’m curious why you chose to ping me to the swingers and porno post? LMAO! ;-)
Well we know who's going home this week. Seriously, do these people NEVER watch the show??? Whoever sings that song ALWAYS goes home within one week.
But, I think the Simply Red song is also cursed ... we'll see :)
COuld be worse...could be another Whitney Houston/Michael jackson night ;-)
