American Idol Recap – Road to the Top 24

Unfortunately there was no recap last night, as I was celebrating Maggie’s birthday (which apparently is more important that blogging about Idol), then watching the end of Carmelo’s debut and the Terps big win over FSU.

But before tonight’s revealing of the rest of the Top 24, here’s a recap of last night’s two hour show.

– 61 contestants remain, put in groups of 2 or 3, singing Beatles songs in Las Vegas. Very happy to finally see Idol show this portion finally. Usually it goes from after Group Week when they put the contestants in 4 rooms straight to announcing the top 24.

– Good to see Lauren Alaina finally showing some nerves, was afraid she’d get too arrogant.

– My favorite moment (even though it involved my least favorite contestant) was when Ashley Sullivan got married, because it was at the The Little White Wedding Chapel Of Love, the exact same place Maggie and I got married four-plus years ago!  I’m a little disappointed that Ashley didn’t opt for the drive-thru wedding like we did.

Paul McDonald, Tim Halperin and Pia Toscano might have sounded the best doing the Beatles.  Was a little disappointed with Chris Medina and Casey Abrams duet, didn’t really mesh well.

– Sad to see Sophia Shorai get cut after her performance.  Probably her own fault for partnering with Ashley Sullivan.

Thia Megia may have an incredible voice, but I think it’s confirming that 15 is too young of an age minimum for this show; she looks like a frightened puppy out there.

– They need to cut Scotty McCreery already, he’s a one-note low pony, plus John Wayne Schulz should be this year’s resident cowboy. Also if Rachel Zevita makes it thru to the Top 24, I may boycott.

– Not making the cut after Beatles performances include Ashley Sullivan, Molly DeWolf, Carson Higgins, Caleb Hawley, Denise Jackson and Melinda Ademi.  Not sad about any of those cuts.

Carmelo Trade A Success For Knicks

I spent the majority of the day yesterday refreshing my browser every 30 seconds it seemed waiting to see if there was any more news on if or when Carmelo Anthony might be traded and to where he might go.  As a Knicks fan (and season ticket holder), I probably read every single article online in the past three months that mentioned anything about Carmelo and his desire to play for the Knicks, or the Nets desire to give up most of their assets or random bits of leaked rumors (Melo to the Lakers, Rockets, etc.).

It was time consuming, it was frustrating, it was nerve wracking and now it’s over.  And ironically, I missed it all happening.  I must have fallen asleep around 10pm last night b/c before my head hit the pillow, Melo was still a Nugget.  However, when I woke up to take the dogs out at 3am, I made the fortunate (or unfortunate) mistake of grabbing my cell and seeing the several text messages I had about the trade going through.  I say unfortunate, because I spent the next two hours reading every article I could about the trade.

Fischer’s Friday Five

Several weeks ago, a rumor had circulated that there was going to be a sequel to The Big Lebowski, which is in my all-time top 5 favorite movies. Now I hadn’t been expecting or anticipating a sequel to this movie (::cough:: Ghostbusters 3 ::cough::), so this was a pleasant surprise and instantly had me salivating and waiting to see what was next for The Dude, Walter, Maude, Karl Hungus and Donnie’s scattered ashes. Unfortunately, this was a rouse perpetrated by Tara Reid (Bunny Lebowski), thus proving how stupid we all are for believing anything that she says. She may s my d for $1000, but I’d give that $1000 back to p her in the v.

Although that did lead me to think about what other great movies out there would I pay good money (apparently $12.50 is now considered good money) to see and what would the plot consist of.

I’m Jarrett, It’s Friday, and here’s my five…
