And, all of the very best audition vibes are sent to dear DR Jose ...... are they going along smoothly?  Does it seem to be a decent batch of talent?  Hopefully not making you too crazy??



Thank you, DR MusicGuy.  And, thankfully, the talent seems to be "decent", and they're not making me crazy.  They've made me laugh a few times (on the inside), but not crazy.  So far.

-And it looks like the turnout today is no where near what is was yesterday.  But that usually happens with a dancer call.

DR FJL - What kind of cake(s) will you behaving today?


-May I suggest just going over to Amy's Bread and getting one slice of each of today's selections.  ;)


-Or just get a variety of the mini-cakes from House of Pies!

Or BOTH!  ;D

As for Ask BK Day...

Is there a neighborhood of L.A. that, for whatever reason, you've never explored, but still want to check out one day?

OK.... so by about 3 or 4, your time, I may need to speak to you quite firmly, to be sure that you are still seemly and dignified.  Yea, right.....

Or, I could just whack you on your po-po !

Re: last night's IDOL.

I have not read anybody's comments here yet.  But it was definitely an interesting night.  I'm not sure how the voting will go mostly because we have to include last week's votes.

I was surprised the judges raked their new favorite over the coals (jordin).

I was very happy blake went back to his beatboxing roots. I mentioned last week that i thought he needed to do that (and make a song his own) in order for him to stay. I think since two are going this week he very well could have gone if he had not done this.

I would guess that melinda would be safe. And i would think jordin would be too (even though they were not kind to her). And now i think blake will be saved by his performance.

We have chris, phil, and lakasha in my B3. I think Chris will go.

Oops i keep forgetting two are going from idol.  So i'd say lakisha and chris. But i wouldn't be surprised if phil went.  I really don't want blake to go. And i'd be sad if melinda or jordin went. But other than that i don't really care.

Here at the Philadelphia airport, I turned on my laptop.... it instantly said "wireless connection found, strength very good" .... I opened a browser page, and was then told that I had to buy a 1-day connection for 8 bucks as the service is from attwifi .

Does anyone think that this country will ever catch up to Europe and Australia, where entire cities are providing wi-fi, no cost, just as a service to its citizens ??

Re: last night's IDOL.

I was surprised the judges raked their new favorite over the coals (jordin).

We have chris, phil, and lakasha in my B3. I think Chris will go.

I was just glad that the "judges" acknowledged that the theme of the evening put the women at a disadvantage.  -Why couldn't they have picked one male rockers, and one female rocker?  -I would have loved to hear one of the girls rock out on a Pat Benatar song.  In any case...

It was nice to see Blake step up his game last night. Yes, he returned to his roots, but he also was singing out more, and show more of his top range.

As for Jordin, I think her weaknesses were showcased last night.  Yes, she is already quite a powerhouse, but her natural technique seemed to be stretched to it's limit last night.  And, as I've commented before, there's something about her pitch that just doesn't sit well on my ear - she's just never really in the center of it, imho.

*OH!  And I talked to a friend who's been to two "Idol" tapings so far this season.  He was amazed at the difference in the sound in the studio versus the TV broadcast.  He also noted how different singers had different amounts of reverb and "sweetening" applied to their vocals.  He noted that Jordin seemed to have a bit more reverb on her than the others.  -Which sort of explained some of the raves that the judges have been giving her - when I have not been that impressed.

Whatevah!

Another day of near 90, and then we will begin to cool down which I will gladly welcome. It's May, not July!

DR MattH, i am very surprised that melinda's line was not busy. I really thought that she would be safe for sure.  But check out dialidol.  I think the only people they had as safe were jordin (#1) and blake (#2).

In my travels, it's always been interesting to find which airports have free Wi-Fi and which don't.

*One "trick" is to find a seat near one of the frequent flyer lounges (Admiral's Club, etc.)... Usually the Wi-Fi is free in there, and the signal reaches out into the terminal.

I should have known that I should have asked you.... Thanks for the tip, and I'll try that trick.  Is there anything about the "provider name" that shows up, that would be an indication of a free service??

DR MattH, i am very surprised that melinda's line was not busy. I really thought that she would be safe for sure.  But check out dialidol.  I think the only people they had as safe were jordin (#1) and blake (#2).

I saw that, much to my distress. Although LaKisha had a good night last night, I still think her persona doesn't denote a winner, and she has had an uphill battle winning me over for the last month or so. I would not be sad to see her go. I think Chris' eviction is a sure thing. And he said in an interview that he's already won in his mind. He got in the Top 10, so he gets to go on the tour, and after that, he'll have some name recognition to do with as he pleases. Did you see how grumpy he was when Ryan called him "Justin Timberlake" last night? Didn't seem to go over very well.

Jordin's fluttery vibrato worked badly against her song last night and threw her off pitch more than usual. In addition, her low end was weak, so it was just a bad choice for her all around. BTW, DR Jose, she has done a Pat Benatar song earlier in the competition, and it was one of her better performances, too, that particular week.
