I know, I've been a bad blogger. Negligent. But as a bonus, you will finally get to see the "Peep Tradition" video sometime in the next 7 days. Dismembering Peeps...remember that? Oh, just wait until you hear them scream.
Until then, let's discuss another topic - American Idol. Do you watch? Do you like? Do you care? Being a musician myself, and having a musical family - I am drawn to this show like a light-blinded moth. I've not embraced any of the contestants as fervently as I did Taylor Hicks. I'm still waiting for another one to be "special" and "non-commercial."
During the past two weeks, the contestants have been trying songs by The Beatles. Oh. My. Gawd. You can either do it well, or totally suck at it, I've witnessed. There is no in between.
None of the contestants thrill me, though I tend to pull for the underdogs. Chikezie is on that list, and shocked the heck out of me this week by doing a bluegrass take on a Beatles song, that somehow worked for me. David Cook is another good singer - even better than Daughtry, though not as visually appealing. Now, it remains to be seen if the teeny-bopper David Archuleta can be stopped. No underdog, he. Luckily, there are three contestants that I have slated to "disappear" in the upcoming weeks, if I were judging.
So, who do you like? Dislike?
