American Idle

In the doldrums of summer there’s nothing better to keep an idle American interested in American Idol (see what I just did there?) than to leak stories about the coming season’s panel of judges.  After the Ellen experiment exploded (oooh, nice alliteration) in the executive producers’ faces things looked about as bleak as Kara DioGuardi’s next paycheck. (Who?)
But now, Idolettes, word comes of a truly unique pairing of pop music people to join Randy Jackson (who?) on the judges’ dais.
The first is Aerosmith lead singer Steven “Living On The Edge” Tyler who himself let it slip he’d been pegged to replace Simon Cowell.
Um, these ears are gettin’ old. Can you crank it down a notch?
Next up is Jennifer “I was Ben Afleck’s main squeeze but then I married Marc Anthony” Lopez.  Nice pair.  Hey! I mean the pair of J.Lo and Tyler.
Woah! Is that thing for real?
If J.Lo and Tyler are the best they can come up with, then what are the producers thinking?  And they haven’t even gotten the three judges together to see if they click.  Can’t you just imagine how that meeting will go?
Randy: Hey Dawg, wassup?
Steven: J.Lo’s got a gun..
J.Lo: I’m not gunnin’ for ya, Steve.  I’m just “Feelin’ So Good”
Randy: Was it much of a “Journey” for you guys to get here?
Steven: Not at all. I was in the neighbourhood so all I had to do was “Walk This Way”
J.Lo: Hey guys, “Let’s Get Loud”
Steven: Yeah, if we’re to make this work we’ll have to show some “Sweet Emotion”
Randy: Wow, Dawg.
J.Lo: I think you’re right Steve.  I think we’re getting along now and I just knew we would.  Actually I’ve just been “Waiting For Tonight”
Steven: Oh, me too.  And I “Don’t Want To Miss A Thing”
Randy: Damn, Dawg, you and the lady are so fine.  I’m happy to be in your posse.
Steven: “Dream On”
J.Lo: C’mon guys we need to get along. We need to show some admiration for one another.  After all “Love Don’t Cost A Thing”
Randy: That’s right, Dawg.  Hey, look there’s Ryan Seacrest. Have you guys met him yet?
Steven: “Dude Looks Like A Lady”
Fat? Yeah, I was fat. I had man-boobs out to here, Dawg.

Hee hee.

I admit I have a crush on Steven Tyler. I know he's weird looking, but dang he is all that and a bag of chips!

rrrrRRRRrrrr.

And I said whoa as I read whoa on that J-lo pic!

Tell me that was photo-shopped!

But (pun intended) they look like they make a great pillow! hee hee

Quirks: I've never seen anyone do rrrRRRRrrrr in print before. Hell, I can't even do it in real life (as I sit here trying to do it - ha,ha,ha)...which probably keeps me out of a lot of trouble. Yeah, J.Lo's definitely got some junk in her trunk!

What can I say, I guess they just have to get "Back In The Saddle" after Simon left. Let's just hope the new judges bring some new blood to the show, it was getting a little "Jaded."
nonamedufus said…
Ziva: Hey, way to go. I'm proud of you, Ziva. Well done! I thought I covered most of Aerosmith's songs but I don't Walk on Water! This post had it's ups and downs - kinda like Love In An Elevator.

Hahaha. Glad you're back and in action. Not sooo glad about the new American Idol judges. I watch that show towards the end of the season. Cowell was the only person that told a contest they sucked when they sucked. Too bad. Back to reruns of America's Got Talent and David Hasselhoff's continuing love affair with himself.
nonamedufus said…
Don: To be honest I stopped watching before Paula left. The first half of the season was a hoot with all those people who thought they could sing. But it got to be repetitive so I stopped watching. About the only reality show I watch now is Amazing Race. Oh, and AGT replaced Hasselhoff with Howie Mandell.

Good to be back...and out and about visiting my pals in cyberspace. You guys are hilarious!
That may be the single longest series of puns and double entendres I've ever read in one place.

Congratulations, NoName!

Hard to believe that J-Lo's ass is that large and pokey-outey. She'd have trouble sitting down, I think.

Mike: For the record (get it?) they're mostly song titles.

I tell you if there was a midget in the room, she'd poke his eye out!

I watched one season of Idol and haven't been able to since. I don't care who is one it, though this was pretty funny.
nonamedufus said…
Jen: I'm with you, Jen. Glad you enjoyed the piece!

There is no chance that's JLo. Unless that's a butt double.
nonamedufus said…
cardiogirl: Oh that's her. And her butt? About.com says "It is enthroned as an object of veneration on fan websites. It is said to have inspired a new trend in below-the-waist surgical implants. Gossip columnists have worn out thesauri looking for superlatives to describe it — "ample," "deluxe," "abundant," "big."

I don't know where her career is at these days but it seems her best assets are behind her.

A Tribute to Theatre
The Murugan Theatre. It is one of the theatres in Thiruthangal, a small town near the famous industrial town of Sivakasi in Tamil Nadu. The small town had three theatres in those days (1980s). Chinnaknai Theatre was in the northern corner of the town and Balaji Talkies was at the other end, in the southern corner

Sweatha: Wow I must be making inroads on the interwebs if a Tamil/Hindu social networking site is interested in me! Thanks.

They'd have to build a special chair on the set just for JLo's ass!
nonamedufus said…
CL: In her case that'd be some stool...um, er, chair.
Kelley said…
Ha! I loved how you mixed in the song titles! That is a mess of a show right there. And, seriously, IS that real??
nonamedufus said…
Kelly: Hey, glad you enjoyed it, Dawg. That show is a mess, a REAL mess.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
