IdolCritics, Top 7 Results

Saturday, April 18, 2009

From The Producer: So I created a "results post" so you the reader do not have to scroll down through the endless ramblings of NPH's most boring and unoriginal friend "The Roller" who so eloquently told you I should enjoy my life as an ass last week for stating the truth in an original manner. Well Mr. Roller while I will take "not totally devoid of insight" as your pathetic attempt at acknowledging I know what the hell I'm talking about let me restate something: Please stop writing because you're just awful, boring, and unoriginal. For instance I loved how you tired to be edgy this week by talking about Giraud's head mole ... whoa ... so edgy. You're a hack and if you are going to keep writing could you please edit your post so when you say "bottom 3 and then list 4 contestants" realize you just look lame.

What a joke American Idol was this week. Giraud should be gone. He's a good karaoke singer and that's the extent of his talent. I'm sure he could move to Detroit and play piano at some upscale hotel bar for money. Get rid of Lil, Giraud, Anoop, and Kris so we can settle out who is the next American Idol.

NPH - The judges huddle up because they are on a ticking clock with a live television show. That is why they huddle up right at the end ... unless you're crazy and quack like a bird across the stage. Then you can just sing your swan song.

I want to comment on your post from a few days ago as I'm so glad you gave Susan Boyle some love on your blog. Susan is everything that is good with entertainment. While you can make an argument that pop culture loves Susan Boyle because YouTube has now posted that at least one video of her performance has been viewed over 27 million times. I'm not convinced America really does embrace this type of talent because as of right now with the dumbing down of everything to appease the masses of closed American minds we wrap everything up into nice, neat, sexy little packages so Target, Walmart, and Best Buy can entice you to buy a really sexy packaged piece of crap. What I hope will happen is that talent will again rise to the top in all areas of life. People like Susan Boyle should be cherished because God has given her the gift, talent, and joy to sing in front of people. It's the same feeling I get when I watch or listen to Paul Potts, Howard Stern, The Soup, Slumdog Millionaire, The Sopranos, and even Eastbound and Down. It's the same feeling I felt when Barak Obama was elected President of the United States of America. I pray for talent to rise to the top and become leaders because of true talent and not because someone is a "total package" based on smoke and mirrors. The point of reality television really should boil down to this:

Give common people who have common jobs an outlet and opportunity to show the world that God has in fact blessed them with a unique, beautiful, and stunning gift. Perhaps America could learn a thing or two from British Reality Television ... perhaps we too can embrace true talent in all walks of life and holding on to those ideals might just allow greatness to rise back to the top and lead America out of this cesspool filled with mediocre people mistaking a sense of entitlement for talent.

America ... let's find our talent.

FROM THE ROLLER: Wow. You, sir, are an idiot. I find it incredible that you spend your first paragraph telling me what an idiot I am... and then the rest of your article proving the same of yourself.

First off... I don't think that I have an editing problem. Perhaps you have trouble reading? I said the bottom three is "between" the four contestants I listed. That means, in case you were wondering, that I thought it would be three of the four. Which it was, I believe.

Secondly, and most importantly, I appreciated your commentary on Susan Boyle and how her ascendancy to pop culture legend highlights the potential of reality television. Your effusive praise for NPH was well-taken. By me. Because... wait for it... I WROTE THE POST. Read it. Are prepositional phrases too much for you? Make a decision, Producer. Are you "so glad" about the Susan Boyle "love" on the blog, or is nothing I say/post worthwhile? While you're deciding, I'll tell you what is becoming increasingly obvious: America need not look for its talent anywhere in your vicinity.

I'm done.
