SPOILER for IDOL (you do know who won, right??)

 

I have no comment on American Idol last night.

Well, okay, I do have a comment. I am saddened. Distraught. Bothered. I thought I didn’t care who won and I’d be happy for Kris. And I am, don’t get me wrong. But I’m not as happy as I thought I would be. Which makes me realize how much I wanted Adam to win. It was a fantastic show all the way through, really high-energy and fab entertainment (Queen? KISS??? Norman Gentle?????), then as soon as Kris won, it’s like the show flattened out. No one, not even Kris, seemed excited about it. It was like “Oh really? I won? Wow. Okay.” I mean, good luck to Kris. He killed Ain’t No Sunshine the other night. Really fabulous performance. But overall? Adam SHOULD have won.

So what does this say and how can I equate it to writing novels? Because I equate everything with writing novels, y’know.

Adam is the cult classic. The dangerous, edgy read. The book that people either love or hate because he’s so different and out there and exciting.

Kris is the mainstream success. The nice, cute read. The book everyone kinda likes just fine. If he got Amazon reviews, he’d get a lot of 3 stars. Adam would get either 5’s or 1’s.

Whatever. They’ll both do CDs and I’ll buy Adam’s. The question is, which will be the long-term success?

I’m over it.

Tonight SYTYCD starts and I could use some dancing. Dancing With The Stars finale was also a disappointment for me since Gilles didn’t win. Meh. Ah Gilles. Merci beaucoup for every paso doble.

So far the only season finale I haven’t been disappointed with was Supernatural. Lost’s was a little meh for me. But I have incredibly high standards for that show and it might never live up to them again.

However, the Toronto Blue Jays seem to be doing well right now so all is right with the world.

I’ve been writing my new book, the second in my LIVING IN EDEN series. It’s not going slowly, but I always find it difficult getting into a new book. But as I recently told a friend, usually when the writing is too much fun and easy it’s an indication that it’s sucking. So hopefully a harder write means less suckage when I roll into the second draft.

It’s a theory.

I’m also working on the AA’s for my Harlequin Blaze HOT SPELL which landed in my inbox again yesterday. I had to look that term up. Surprisingly it doesn’t mean Alcoholic’s Anonymous. It means author Additions and Alterations (I think). Learn something new every day. I think I’ll have my cover for this in about a month. Can’t wait to see it!!!

    Well, I will have to disagree with you. Adam is not everyone’s cup of tea. He wasn’t mine. I never was a fan of glam rock in the 80s or hair bands.

    I like voices that I can feel emotionally connected to. Screeching, wailing–whatever you want to call it–just hurts my ears. That is not ‘singing’ to me. And I take offense at the idea that Adam *should* have won…for what particular reason? Music is very subjective, just like books. Kris is NOT a 3-star singer. Maybe to *you* he is…but to me he is bordering on 4’s and 5’s.

    I love Kris’s kind of music. Doesn’t make it any better than Adam’s…wish the Adam fans would recognize that. Why does it have to be ‘edgy’ in order to be worthy? Why can’t a good voice and musical talent (Kris can play multiple instruments and showed he has musicianship with his arrangements) be enough?

    There is room on the top ten charts for Jason Mraz AND edgier artists. Does that mean Jason Mraz-type music is crap or schlocky?

    I can appreciate that Adam has talent. But I don’t like his particular type of music. I think you can do both….but clearly you think Kris has less talent and is less deserving, which really kind of sticks in my craw. Sorry.

    I was not a watcher of AI, but I can say I was mostly disappointed by the season finale’s this year. I disliked the Bones ending so much, I think it jumped the shark for me.

    She didn’t say that he was EVERYBODY’S cup of tea, it’s an either you love him or ya hate him.

    Maybe not HATE but you know.

    Anyways, I agree with, Michelle. Totally. *Nods*

    They’ll probably both do CD’s and possibly I’ll buy Adam’s. I don’t buy CD’s a lot, but I might just buy his depending on how it looks and all. :)

    Hmm. I really feel like I should catch up on your books, I’m so far behind. XD

    But still good luck on your writing and all. :D You’ll kick ass. XD

    KLG… well, Adam should have won because I wanted him to. Isn’t that reason enough? ;)

    I agree with you about Idol. I also did not realize how much I wanted Adam to win. I’m a bit sad about it today so I’ll just look forward to buying his first album. :)

    Didn’t watch AI either – but Stephanie, I’d have to agree that the Bones finale wasn’t spectacular. I mean I loved it cuz it was Bones, but I had a harder time getting into it.
    What about the Dollhouse finale? Alan Tudyk just plain rocks!

    I’m another who won’t watch Bones anymore. But I LOVED the LOST finale! I thought it was great fun. Grey’s Anatomy was good, too. And of course, SPN!!!

    I guess I’m a Kris lover….not an Adam ‘hater’ as such, Kris is just more my style. I agree that Adam has unbelievable amounts of talent and a fabulous voice….I just don’t love what he does with it. Too much screaming for me and a little too campy. He is lovely to look at though.

    I didn’t realize just how much I wanted Kris to win (or maybe didn’t want Adam to win), until it was announced and my 17 year old daughter and I screamed, quite loudly I might add, for about 30 seconds straight and my husband plugged his ears and said, ‘Chill out, will ya?’ Heehee!

    I am SO all over SYTYCD again. Such talent coming from that show….I teared up when Natalie danced last night….so beautiful. I really hope she makes the top 20 this year.
