This is my 3rd season of watching American Idol and I'm hoping they find some real idol material this year. Carrie Underwood and that Taylor Hicks chap were/are most certainly not idols by any stretch of imagination....I mean what the hell was the American public thinking when they voted for those 2 to win???But then, they also voted for George W's 2nd term, so I guess it wasn’t a big surprise.
American idol is a laugh riot with all those hopeless wannabes getting ruthlessly KO'd by Simon, but this season it seems like it’s a tag team match with Randy too getting in on the rude act. But Randy as a Simon wannabe?pathetic.....when Simon’s rude he’s just being himself and spouting the truth in his own charming way, but Randy as the rude dude doesn’t quite cut it. Paula as usual is at her irritating best. I think it’s about time they replaced her with someone else:
Quick SMS vote to 2567:
A for Barbara Streisand
B for Julie Andrews (that would mean 2 Brit judges on the show !!woohoo :) !!!
C for any out of work, past their prime ,popstar from the last 2 decades…. I hear someone shouting Britney's name...and I am not being rude here ;)
If only Britney had had to audition for Idol there’s no way in hell she'd have gotten thru and the music world would have been better off!!!
but there’s stiff competition from home for Britney in being bad ....if there’s someone who'd be even worse than Britney it'd be her (ex??)hubby K-Fed himself.......K -who you ask? I don’t blame ya!...thought of a quick pun on Britney-she’s now 'K-Fed-Ex' !!!!hope they don’t sue for wrongful usage of their name ;)
Coming back to the show, last year the McPhee-ver really swept me away in its tide and I was mighty pissed she didn’t win. Why didn’t they have a recount?? :(
The new seasons just begun ,and so far so bad by large....but a teenaged bro-sis duo caught my eye.. and both ears.....their names:- Sanjaya Malakar,17 and Shyamali Malakar,19..... I guess they're probably 2nd generation Indians living in the
I think this is the 1st time I'm spotting any contestants of Indian origin on the show and thank heavens they chose wonderful songs to sing instead of embarrassing us by singing some silly BSB or Ricky martin or Britney(again?!) or
I'm still waiting for someone to sing a Sinatra number...in the last 2 years I have seen only 1 contestant try it. But obviously no fool would attempt such an arduous task as it would definitely mean getting KO’d by Simon.
[Allow me this anecdote: Sammy Davis junior, master impresario, could do any voice but when it came to THE Voice, Sinatra, he said "No sir, thank you very much")]
Anyway, here’s hoping that this year we do find an Idol worthy of the title.
Moving on to the other show, Big Boss:(oops, I mean, Bigg Boss…,or so Mr.Jumaaaaaani tells me..hmmm I wonder why he hasn’t convinced the film publications/TV channels to address Amitabh Bacchan as the Bigg B)
Me strongly rooting for Rahul Roy to win it, but I’ve got a sneaky feeling he is the big boss’ henchman ‘coz I did the math and it tells me there’s only a week left and 4 people still remain. They say there will be 2 evictions next week and that would still leave 2 behind. So it may well be the final twist in the tale,if my suspicion does come true.
I’m already drawing up a list of celebs I’d want to see for season 2.
How about the Indian cricket eleven, plus Chappell. Now that would be a scream and we’d get 3 whole months without
As for my take on the recent Big Brother(I don’t notice a 2nd ‘g’ there)-Shilpa Shetty episode, well just a month back we were all hi-5-ing each other that the Brits invited Shilpa for the show(ie establishing that we crave their attention and approval) but just ‘coz some Jane Goody(no goody 2 shoes she) called her a dog (well,she didn’t even use the feminine term for that),we (ie the news channels and some jingoistic opinion providers) start calling the Brits - Racists,thick,intolerant and what not…what a load of rubbish these Brit bashers are spouting.Hippocracy to the core,ifya ask me….
Anyway Ms.Goody’s been evicted so I presume all’s quiet on the western front.
Made a wish-> Star world,wake up and get BigBrother on air in
PS:Cant wait for ‘On the Lot’ to begin…it’s the new reality show being produced by Spielberg and Mark Burnett….
Well then, back to reality bytes for me, bytes of java code that is,….’coz my modules delivery is coming up mid week and if you’ve done Java coding standards implementation(after the entire coding has been done), you’ll know what I’m talking about. Well, ever tried building a house of cards only to be told after you’re done that the bottom row must contain only royal cards??its like that…:)
I find myself waking up in a cold sweat at nights ‘coz I’m having nightmares that my integer variable name doesn’t start with an ‘i’, or my loop uses an innocuous but unexplained numeric end point or my sun-studio java form file is corrupted…hell hath no fury like a corrupted java form file :(
And the Irish(my clients) are coming….for inspecting coding standards adherence…..
Hell, we oughta have a big boss show with IT professionals ,with a video camera rolling on every cubicle in the bay. Now that’d be something else :)
