Thank You, Simon CowellPosted: August 24, 2011
My blergh usually hits an average of ten
million hits per post. So, imagine my surprise when I saw that my American Idol post had hit over two hundred and fifty million hits on Monday. Oddly enough, as surprised as I might have been, I wasn’t really shocked. My last post from a few years ago (which has long since been deleted when I cleaned house), was very popular. It was even featured on some Russian website.
So, thank you, Simon Cowell (and Ryan Seacrest) for making my blergh a more popular pitstop.
Is this post about American Idol? Survey says…
Just big ups to the show that gives me hope that I might not be the most crap writer in the world. In high school, I won nearly every award for writing that was offered. I even ended up winning a week’s paid trip to DC my junior year. After school, instead of going to college, I majored in motherhood. I don’t say that as being my downfall, but it’s hard to write short stories between diaper changings and PTA meetings.
To make up for it, I decided to start writing my blergh. Whether anyone reads it or not. It’s a way for me to get random thoughts out of my head and be semi creative between teaching 2+2 and how to tie your shoes.
So, I thank American Idol for bringing a bit of traffic to the ghost town that is my blergh.
Yes, I’m an Idol fan, but I also watch X Factor. Those who can’t do…watch reality tv?
Now, what was I really saying?
Oh, yes. Blondes. I used to be a redhead, but naturally (as I am now), I’m a blonde. Do they have more fun? Things are funnier when you’re blonde, so I suppose so. Are we ditzy? Without a doubt, but blonde is an attitude, not a hair color.
My perfect blonde trifecta:
Marilyn. Britney. Paris.
I count them even if their roots are dark.
Even if one of them shaved their head and went totally Looney Tunes.
I’m talking about the infamous Britney Spears. I’ve been listening to her since her abusive catholic school girl days.
What I loved about her music is that it was pure and some of her songs were even personal. Today? I’m sad, because all her new stuff that I hear is so auto-tuned that I have to pause and really listen…is that Britney? I don’t know, because she sounds like a robot! Now, Ke(dollarsign)ha has made a fortune of being queen of the auto-tune. Britney, on the other hand, I remember, From The Bottom Of My Broken Heart. I don’t care how much hair or sanity the girl has lost, she’s still got her voice…so use it.
Not that I want to ban all auto-tuning and all that crap they like to do to mess with your voice. I rock out in the car to If You Seek Amy and Piece Of Me.
But where did the soul go?
Sound machines have no soul.
I don’t know. I read that on this wooden box this guy was playing like a drum at a Violent Femmes concert. Seemed appropriate.
So, enjoy this classic that I’ve had in my head all day.
Now, that’s the Brit Brit that I love and adore.
And if you don’t?
QOTN: If you could be not just famous but infamous for one thing, what would it be?
I’d be the World’s Greatest Mom
