Takin' a dive

I'll come right out and say it: I kinda think David Cook took a dive last night on the Idol. I mean, covering hockey rock songs like Collective Soul's "World I know" may not win you the show (pickin' a kinda crap song from like 1995? uhh, ok) but it most definitely will win you hockey rock fans. Who, of course, will be buying the hockey rock albums you'll no doubt be releasing next year. Not a bad play. Nickelback, Yellow card, Switchfoot, etc. all would have had the same effect.

I could very well be wrong but I say let the little boy win while you go out the semi bad-assed "too cool for Idol" guy. It's a much better storyline. I mean, after all the two biggest selling albums of last year were "High School Musical II" and frikkin' Josh Groban. Gee, who do you think is more in that vein?

Oh yeah, speaking of poor choices...

Uh, Georgia, really? No, no, no, Seriously? It's 2008, ya know. Let's start with joining the 20th century. Then we'll go from there.

Far be it for me to defend the south (immense love-hate relationship here), but in GA's feeble defense, the guy did mention that he'd had an order for 100 shirts from New Jersey.

Disgusting, nonetheless, all of it.
