  1. Well, you know I like the title and think it's absolutely true! It was crazy fun, and has made me pull out clips I haven't watched in years (like the bootleg TITN video and momo's WDC)
  2. Greetings and salutations! (waves madly at the FCA, wonders if I still have mod privileges and manfully resists the urge to jiggle everything) Since I am currently listening to Solo's recording of Kyrie in Dallas, my fingers automatically went to post on the board. Hey to all my old friends (and to those who don't know who the hell the eHP is, nothing can be proven and we have never been convicted!) I am so not a nostalgic person, but last night took me back (although I admit, for a second I was wonder why Anderson Cooper was singing to me). It was crazy fun. Clay was playing to the hard core target audience...purply-blue shirt with the gray inner button placket and gray slacks (but no tie). And they didn't fit the way they did back in the day, but hell, neither are the fans. We even got a shirt tug. We got a little of Don't Save it All for Christmas Day. I was happy and what else matters!
  3. Please child, I said I had good taste - in naughty people! Except for PerusingOne - who has just put the evil in the evil Houston Posse! Hi new ninna! I have plausible deniability for anything I might be accused of!
  4. Hey sweeties! Had to say goodbye to the CH (and come check in here to make sure this is good...you stay good!) I'm glad I have good taste in singers (and friends).
  5. Ha! And I wasn't there - so it really is just y'all. Sorry to have been so out of it - but believe it or not, my 4-week remodel from the end of May is still NOT DONE. Seriously, NOT DONE....I hate contractors because I might have be able to go to someplace called Maine...
  6. Lord, it's like my head never gets above water anymore! Between my new job (although it's not new since I've been there a year now) and feeling Fear's pain (I bought a new house the first week of May, gave up my lease for May 31st, and thought I would have time for a little remodeling before I moved in - I watch HGTV! I have now discovered HGTV full of lies! It will be pretty when I'm done, but I will be broke, exhausted and crazy before then. Why in the hell do I have so much freakin' stuff? Ten years...and Clay has a career to make him and me happy! I can live with that!
  7. waves to all the nervous nellies Eh, was the opening supposed to be this boring? Why were there all the random male backup singing dancers? It was Donna frickin' Summer! I'm getting the feeling I have missed a lot on Idol in the last 6 years... Who is old grumpy critical dude "Jimmy"? OK, I'm happy now - he was so relaxed (although I missed the choir) and it was funny how quickly they seem to have gotten rid of Paula (and what was she wearing?). A lot fewer commercials than I remembered...
  8. Huh. Clearly I have missed much (oh well). So is this "Fairy Tale" a song? Is Clay going to judge people? Hell, am I gonna have to look up something? And did I win the NCAA tournament?
  9. Oh wow! This'll teach me to be distracted with real life! (Thx a million, merrieeee!) Hell, I can't remember the last time I paid any attention to American Idol...what do y'all think Simon will say to Clay?
  10. Weird Clay thought tonight - on the Colbert Report, Steve had on a dancer that did "jukin' " and during the performance I thought to myself, "Clay does that with his feet too! Still looks horrific!" Eh for Clive Davis...edge doesn't always work (and Clive has always struck me as the guy with the proverbial hammer - everything looks like a nail after awhile)...but if nothing else, Clay seems satisfied with how his life has turned out and is clearly still memorable enough to that old head - and he's been through probably thousands of singers. Hopefully at some point in the book he actually remembers Kim or Joshua's names (but since I'm sure he had editors who could look that stuff up, if they weren't named - now that's a diss.)
  11. Hi all! Looks around in interest... It's been forever! Sorry to have been out of touch, but it's weird to have a job I actually like and keeps me busy! Didn't listen to chat, but a radio show, huh? I haven't listened to the radio since...ummm...some time in 2003. Just can't do it. Hell, I don't even listen to podcasts, but I might make an effort for him, since I always do. I do want to play Couchie's game...and I won't even cheat! Yay me! On to the count down! 13. May 20, 2003 - This Is The Night - he was gorgeous and sounded perfect and I just knew he was gonna win! Well, I won instead...a decade of playing this...works for me! 12. This is sort of weird, but the This Is The Night unreleased video with I Survived You dubbed over it. Am watching now. Excuse me. 11. When I Need You, 2004 Miami, just a beautiful rendition. 10. Don't Save It All For Christmas Day - not the holiday season 'til he sings it to me. 9. Long Island All Is Well - my schmoopie performance 8. You Were There - it touches me in so many ways but the raw power in some of those performances were just on another level 7. Perfect Day. It's just sweet! 6. There is the most kickass version of Rosanna out there - I heard it on a cellcert - and we never got audio - but it lives in my memory 5. To Love Somebody - The Gala tied with the AI version...makes my heart go pitty-pat 4. Signed, Sealed, Delivered - Jacob really did add something to the harmonies and pushed Clay to be amazing...(and I'm sneaking in Chain of Fools, 'cause he made me believe it! Flexible thing that he is!) 3. When A Man Loves a Woman - that was just one of those moments that if I couldn't have been there, thank God for good video and audio (and someone with the lyrics!) 2. I Survived You - He kicked such ass in 2004 singing that puppy live...I love the absolutely over the top versions toward the end of the tour..all smoldering put-upon passion...love it! 1. Almost every day, As Long As We're Here. It's just frickin' pretty. The good version at the Gala? To die for!
  12. As all I'll want is either the Shepherd's Pie, the Chicken Pot Pie or the Fish 'n Chips, I'm good with any of 'em. I'm sticking with the FCA.
  13. I have to object to merrieeee's "craziest" Clay trip - I would have to say it was when she was blind as a bat, didn't know me from Adam, but abandoned her flight for me, went to go spend the night in GBB's house and had me illegally drive us from Mobile to New Orleans (and I didn't even know she was blind as a bat). Except for that, I can't say I've really done anything certifiable (and none of y'all can prove it! Any witnesses were in it up to their necks!)
  14. Happy b-day kimiye! Look forward to seeing all who are going to the gala, and commiserating with all who aren't... Man, someone should have told me actual work is time-consuming!
  15. Hugs to all who need them...but I always thought CA was one of the worst rigged "reality competition" shows out there and completely subjective and subject to Trump's whims. I don't think Trump could spell "objective". I'm glad he did as well as he did, I'm OK with Arsenio doing what he did, still despise Trump, Lampenelli, and O'day and am mildly derisive of Penn. Still love Clay and think in the end, this will be another footnote in his career with way more good than bad. He was on my teevee weekly again, and that made me happy. Looking forward to a tour and the Gala!
  16. <sigh> Mildly disappointed...but he sure was pretty!
  17. OK - this was worth the horror of the Trumpster, those bitches Lisa and Aubrey... Clay and Arsenio, with a gospel choir, wailing out on "Lean On Me". Man, that was good!
  18. I have to say I love control freak Clay...Penn can suck it.
  19. Ahem.... Ding dong, the witch is dead! The wicked witch is dead! Hurrah! Ciao, Aubrey, you hell-beast, you!
  20. My internet went out yesterday (boo!) and I'm still pretending to be good at my new job... As for Lizard Lumpenelli, I agree with Clay that's it better to be a straight forward bitch...but first and foremost, she's a heinous crock of shit. Being honest about being a crock of shit is not actually a wash. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed it's Clay and Arsenio in the finale, and the finale involved bricking up Ms. O'Day a la the Cask of Amontillado.
  21. Dayana would have had to deal with the best of a bad bunch. Since Clay (and Lisa) were the music experts, they probably could have said, "These are the only 3 viable options within the constraints that we have" and if Dayana has as little music knowledge as they claim, it's not like she could offer options. That's how I dealt with difficult managers and 3-year-olds - give them a choice within limited parameters. I mainly feel Clay went the same route he criticized when Lisa was PM - give the damn girl something to do. Hell, Lisa was doing all the writing, let them write her a statement to give. Hell, the "hippie" suggestion might have given Clay's jingle the "edge" it needed...it definitely was "out there". Clay's "basic agreement" with Lisa is what bothered me the most...Lisa basically said Dayana was simply worthless as a person, stupid and talentless. And what real power do PMs have? It's not like Dayana could fire Lisa or Clay when they didn't cooperate with her.
