A few thoughts

In lieu of a legit post (my big ideas are frikkin' tapped right now) perhaps ya'll might settle for a few random observations/thoughts. Really? Ahh, that's nice of ya.

Let's do this!

Thought #1. I’ve come to the conclusion that the Clinton’s really only care about the Clintons. Not a shocker but it’s getting clearer every day. They pitch it as “hey, we want to represent your interests” but they really only care about themselves. And who in their right mind would ever take the VP job behind her and Bill? No one! I’ve even heard this idea now that they don’t care about this election but rather wrecking Obama in the hopes that McCain serves a single term and she runs again in 2012. God help us. You fucking can’t win, bitch! It’s impossible! Get out!

Sorry, but this whole thing has really taken a toll on me. I can't stand her to begin with and at this point it is personal. I felt the same way when she came carpetbagging up to New York when I lived there.

Thought #2. M. Ward and Zoe Deschenal’s new little band/thing, She and Him, released a new album called “Volume One” yesterday and to my ears it’s pretty darn good. I'm usually massively wary of actresses who start singing. But she's kinda killer. Check out “Why do you let me stay here?” and see what I mean. Shazam, that's nice!

Thought #3. Not sure what to think of these Chester French dudes just yet. Kinda like Vampire Weekend only not as good, me thinks.

Thought #4. How long do you think it will be until prime time TV is completely overrun by game shows? A week? Two? It can’t be long now. I thought the writer’s strike was over. What's up? I heard today Family Feud is coming to prime time! Really? Do we really want to watch that show? Has anyone ever wanted to watch that show that hasn't been injured in an accident and might be entitled to compensation? Don't even get me started on that "My dad vs. your dad" show.

Thought #5.
That David Cook is growing on me. Seems to me he’s the only one really making other people’s songs his own. I feel like everyone else is like watching karaoke only your song is never gonna come up and there’s no booze. I’m looking at you Ramiele. You too, Dreads. Ya’ll’s a snoozefest. Don’t even get me started on you, Krtisty Lee Republican, and your god-awful cover of that dreadful “I’m proud to be an American” song. That thing made me have to Febreze my tv and then dip it in bleach from all the stank you put up in it.

Thought #5A. And Michael Johns. Dude, first off I don’t trust people with two first names. Is it Michael or it is John? Make up your mind. Second, as Collin pointed out like last week, you’re not Michael Hutchence! It’s time to come to terms with that. And dude, if I hear one more frikkin’ straight rendition of a Queen song I’m gonna fly out there and…oh, wait…I live here. I could be there in 15 minutes, depending on traffic. Something to think about it, double-first-name.

Thought #5B. Jorge Villalobos, err David Archuleta, is like a puppet. Or a show dog. Which makes him incredibly qualified to win the whole thing.

Thought #6. Don't sleep on the Longhorns. We could just sneak up and steal this whole tourney right out from under ya. You gotsta have your dream bracket.

Thought #7. We did have a lovely Easter weekend spent between the beach, barbecues, watching roundball, and of course church at the Hollywood Bowl. Gotta love LA.

I can't stand the Idol show dog, but part of me wonders if it's fair to have a random 16 year old on any show and expect him or her not to be a complete dweeb. Yeah, I said dweeb. It's a right of passage, but doesn't mean I want to watch it singing Australia's top 10. And aw shucks-ing all the way. Awful.

I actually kind of liked the straight Queen song last night by ol' double-first name. It was the only memorable song other than David Cook's latest rendition - who does that to Billy Jean and get away with it? HE does.

The dream bracket it living strong in this household. Keep hittin' the tre, and the horns will take down Stanford. Hook em'

By chester french being not as good as vampire weekend, you mean infinitely better, right? Since they have, like, songs with full arrangements and parts and stuff rather than just a few undercooked ideas. Cuz if so, I totally agree.

She & Him is sooo 2 weeks ago, H. I mean really, you need a better music hookup. Who woulda thought I'd beat you to an album for a change? not this kid...

I suppose getting called out is one of the dangers of actually writing something more often than once a month.

Oh snap!
