Haven't I Seen Your Face Before?. . Oh, Why Must They Confuse Me?

In my fits of sleep last night, I happened to catch an episode of Made on MTV. I had to preempt this statement because let me make something clear . . . I-do-not-watch Made. However, I found it odd that Diem was the focus in this episode . . . you know, cancer survivor Diem from the Real World/Road Rules Challenges . . the one who took off the wig in that Rambo-esque moment when they had to swim through the mud, and she rocked her buzzed-cut au naturale look? Oh yeah, and the one who dates C.T. Anyways, she wanted to be made into a ballroom dancer or something like that . . . like I said, I was kind of sleepy.

I just found it weird that she was in Made. Just like I find it weird that Mike White is a contender on the Amazing Race. You know, Mike, as in the father and son team? Mike, the one who so shamelessly hit on the virgin bride in last night's episode? Well this reality show contestant is also the guy who has starred in the movie The School of Rock as Ned Schneebly. Oh yeah, he wrote it too. After a little imdb-wicki digging, I learn that he also wrote Nacho Libre, The Good Girl, Orange County (in which he also starred alongside Jack Black) and has been in some episodes of Freaks and Geeks and Dawson's Creek . . . not too schneebly.

Just a random post on some random thoughts. Does anyone else find this cross-over idea weird? I guess I just like to keep my reality show actors and real actors in their individual compartments and feel all funny inside when I see them where they shouldn't be . . .

American Idol: Rat Pack Night "Sways" My Opinions

Well our Top 5 performed the Rat Pack Standards last night, and when it was all said and done, I must say . . . I felt a little swayed. I have to use the word "swayed," first of all, because it's my clever pun on a popular song during the Rat Pack era; and secondly, because the night didn't make me into a full-blown convert -- it simply swayed me, like a gentle yet confused little branch blowing in the wind, unsure if it wants to waver on back to the safe side of "Adam & Simon," or dare to venture and possibly snap on over to the unfamiliar side of "Danny & Kara."

Sway Factor #1: Jamie Foxx is a rockin' mentor! Who ever would have thought that Mr. Foxx would mentor Rat Pack night?! Turns out, he did a kick ass job! Getting all up in Danny Gokey's grill, refusing to let "D" (nickname compliments of Mr. Foxx) detour from his emotions. Channeling "Field of Dreams" and telling Matt Giraud, "if you change the ke…

American Idol Inspirational Song Night: Crystal Bowersox Cries. I Finally Feel Something. (Recap)

Considering I kept busy on my computer all the while Idol played out tonight on my TV screen, only giving the occasional glance up to notice that Lee Dewyze got his hairs cut, Kara got her hairs styled in a flattering manner that I can't quite put my finger on as to why they were so flattering and Simon's buzz cut looked especially unflattering ... I guess you could say it was all one big unnoticeable snooze fest until Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox took the stage. So really, all I care about commenting on is her for now.

Wicked Mic Stands and Wet Eyes: Now I don't know if Crystal got overly wrapped up in the spirit of today's date, but someone should have told her pot paraphernalia is not allowed on the Idol stage. Oh, I keed. I keed. Crystal's extraordinary mic stand was made from an old lamp with which she always used to perform in her pre-Idol days. Could that sentimentality be what brought on her sudden outburst of tears at the end of her emotional "…

It's a Crystal / Lee Finale ... And I'm Alright.

(Bye little, Casey.  Hey, we'll always have "Jealous Guy")
I'm alright
Nobody worry 'bout me
The end is now in sight
Will it be Crystal or that damn sexy Lee?

Yes, folks.  Don't worry about me.  I am still alive.  I just haven't been posting as regularly because I've been waiting to be moved again.  And if those hometown visits last night didn't get you a little misty eyed, well then may I suggest you check your pulse. 

In what was probably the most predicted elimination, we said goodbye to that Cool Texan, Casey James, leaving us with the two most deserving contestants of season 9:  Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox and Lee "You Can Mix My Paint Any Ol' Time" DeWyze.  And while I have always thought Mamasox would wind up with the win, I find myself pulling for Lee.  But (unlike last season), I can honestly say that I'm alright with either.  (And I think most people would agree.)

Lee's hometown visit ... well, let's just …
