Gah! I'm reduced to "watching" "American Idol" results on Twitter.

#idol.

Blah!

Spoil away in the comments.

So annoying! (No TV.)

If you will get Paypal setup, I for one will be glad to buy you a working TV that picks up FOX down by the Ohio. They also have 6 months of NFL coming up soon on FOX. You just have to promise not to make Meade watch all chick flicks and Public Television...be fair.

Katy Perry is on, singing a bad song. There are people dancing with feather fans.

Ann Althouse said...

@traditionalguy Actually, tonight, I'm getting Meade to watch my DVD of "Fight Club."

Jason (the commenter) said...

Now there's more ads. Not the part of the show that is really an ad, but an actual ad.

Jennifer said...

Oh no, Danny alluded to a sad time. Crucify him, boys.

Why does it seem like all of Kris' fans are under the age of 12?

How does it seem like a good idea to rip off an incredibly distinctive turn of phrase? Why does love always feel like a battlefield? Really? Why not We feel like we are the world or Feels like teen spirit or Why does it feel like a teenage wasteland? Geez.

Jennifer said...

Ok, trippy. Now they really are playing Baba O'Reilly.

Jason (the commenter) said...

Someone was announced as competing next week. People are cheering.

Jason (the commenter) said...

They announced someone else! They got dramatic shots of each of the judges first.

Ann Althouse said...

Ha ha ha ha!

Yay!

What I wanted!

madawaskan said...

Wait...he hasn't seen Fight Club yet?

That's a good one...

But-

Has he passed the My Dinner with Andre test yet?

Hell, I knew after five minutes thast I think I wanted to punch Andre so I had to shut it down...

Man....

Ann Althouse said...

I've seen "Fight Club" several times. He's never seen it.

Ann Althouse said...

Yay! Adam! Kris!!!

madawaskan said...

That might be the are you a liberal or republican test....

If you get the urge to punch Andre-you might be a redneck.

JAL said...

I'm watching LOST.

madawaskan said...

Well Fight Club that is awesome.

I don't know any guy really that doesn't like that one-have fun!

Meade said...

"I've seen "Fight Club" several times. He's never seen it."

Right-wing...redneck... Fight Club fan.

And you a law professor.

EnigmatiCore said...

Fight Club was really a good movie. Didn't expect to like it.

Good evening fellow republicans. I missed AI.

Wednesday' are my 3 hour night at the gym. 1 hour of Abs Class, 1 hour on the treadmill running 10 miles and 1 hour of legs.

I feel super, how are you?

Monday's are biceps and back and cardio.

Tuesdays are shoulder and triceps

Thursday's are abs and chest.

Friday's are cardio and abs.

Saturday and Sunday are Yoga.

Thanks for asking.

TitusNamasteandBePresent said...

My premerie in Ptown is less than two weeks away and I have to be fierce.

The competition is brutal.

One wrong shirt or arm or shoe and your entire summer can be ruined.

Beth said...

The first rule of watching your DVD of Fight Club is you do not talk about watching your DVD of Fight Club.

Tyler Perry at Star Fleet? WTF?

Ralph said...

Why don't you hang out at Walmart? They have lots of TVs and I always see such interesting-looking people.

Maxine Weiss said...

I still say this guy wins the award for the most engrossing saga on Twitter. You can't not read his posts:

Is the honeymoon over?

When I fell in love I quit watching TV.

PatCA said...

You need a TV. Maybe it's time for an egg salad sandwich for TV contest.

I'm sad Danny didn't win, but he'll have a good career. Kris' song choices were great, starting with Once and then Heartless, Jose Feliciano-style. (Hate Kanye, love the song.)

Have you read Fight Club? Great novel, too.

"My Dinner with Andre at the Fight Club"

Now there's a movie I would pay to see.

rhhardin said...

I recommend talk radio. It doesn't take over the room like TV. You can work for hours and not hear a word.

You do have to be selective to get the non-shouters.

The first couple of hours of Armstrong and Getty is good, before they run out of daily material and ask for favorite color calls. They even cover American Idol for some reason.

"My Dinner with Andre at the Fight Club".

"My Fight With Andre at Dinner Club" would be more satisfying.

Could we take up a collection and buy the love birds a tv as an early wedding gift?

Lem said...

So annoying! (No TV).

That’s what you get for hanging out in Marge Schott country ;)

KLDAVIS said...

Get a Slingbox...less than $150 on Amazon, no monthly fees. It lets you watch your home TV (including shows on your DVR) from anywhere with an internet connection. They even just released an iPhone client.

The results show was was terrible anyway, except it was sweet to see all of them go home. But you could tell the performances were live this time because they were bad and forgettable (unlike Paula last week who didn't think she had to be bothered to even move her mouth as the music was piped in).

Btw, prediction. There is a segment of any group that likes a singer based on how attracted they are to them (i mean, try explaining the success of the pussycat dolls otherwise). Up until this week, the girls voting based on a guy's cuteness were probably split between Gokey and Kris. Next week, almost all of those votes will go to Kris and Adam will be crushed in the process. Yes, Adam seems to get some of these fans, too, Kris will get the lion's share and will win.

I'm not saying its right, but it is how i think it is.

Jenn

You are so right about that jordan sparks song. God that was forgettable.

traditional guy:

Just send a check to her office address. :-)

PatCA said...

Yes, the Jordin Sparks song was completely forgettable. All those AI songs sound like they were written by a computer.

aaron, I am thinking along the same lines you are regarding Kris v. Adam. If I were a Danny voter, I think I'd be more likely to give my vote to the cute Kris than to the polarizing Adam.

And even though in my own opinion, Adam's the better singer and performer, a Kris victory would be satisfying. Adam doesn't need to win, at this point -- he's made such a splash that his fame and fortune are pretty well assured. He might even be better off steering his own course than to be hampered by Idol status. Kris, on the other hand, has been a dark horse all along and to some extent, he still is. He could use the boost of a victory.

And anyway, it's always more fun to root for the underdog. Go Susan Boyle! Go Mine That Bird! Go Kris!

Michael H-

My Fight With Andre at Dinner ClubPlease make that movie!

madawaskan said...

OK damn it I could punch blogger..and myself for going all-it's awesome.

I was embarrassed for more than a couple of minutes for typing that-awesome.

Joe said...

The fix has been in for weeks. It's been blindingly obvious that Adam was going to win unless the votes were so lopsided that the producers couldn't do creative recounting.

(One way to ensure Adam's win is to eliminate all the threats down the homestretch.)

Aaron said...

oh for the love of God, conspiracy theories about idol? really?

Oy. To paraphrase and butcher Mark Twain's words, the first conspiracy theory was invented when the first con man met the first sucker.
