My American Idol is Jesus

We'll get back to bashing City Bible tomorrow, but it has been getting kind of heavy here lately, and I just want to try to lighten the mood. While I enjoy writing the blog, it kind of limits me to religious posts, when I could easily spend five days a week writing just about TV. My secret: I love TV. I could delve into the strategy behind voting off the cutest chicks on Survivor (I don't get it). Or why Lorelei and Rory are the hottest Mom-Daughter combo in TV history, why Real World/Road Rules: The Gauntlet is the best and worst reason to be on Reality TV (it turns you into an extremely entertaining idiot), and why the greatest interview of all time would be Stephen Colbert interviewing Jon Stewart on the Colbert Report. But I don't get to talk about that, I get to talk about how Doug Lasit is tangentially related to Howard Rachinski. (Me Screaming: Who Cares!!!) This is all to say, I love American Idol. Well. I love the first part of the show, I lose interest when the competition actually begins. Simon has been on a roll, and I am continually amazed at the delusional folks they get to try out: The tan girl was the best. However, of all my favorite contestants on the show, the best has been Jon Peter Lewis from AI 3. So for this weeks shameless plug, JPL has a new single out "Stories from Hollywood". It's actually really good and I've been listening to it all day. You can download it for free here. (it's okay; it's legal) I hope you enjoy the song, and we can get back to debating tithing 10% versus giving out of joy, tomorrow.

Not the kid who thought he was God's gift to teen girls??!! At least he wasn't as blatant as Constantine.

So was "Zachary" male or female?

He was a male. A confused male, but a male.

And JPL at least sang cool songs. He was way better than Constantine.

It always looks so fake, and then you see their crushed look when they get told that they aren't going to hollywood. I love it.

We don't get TV here really, so I don't so much have the option of watching reality shows these days. However, that's ok....because I'm pretty sure I live on the set of the Hungarian version of Big Brother. No, seriously....20-some strangers living together in a converted Franciscan monastery with ridiculous tasks assigned to various teams (here, we call them "solfege groups"...oh, and solfege is the name for that doh-ray-me thing from the Sound of Music -- we're grouped according to how well we sing doh-ray-me, if you can imagine such a thing), and several people have been voted off....and there's definitely plenty of faux-Hollywood-worthy drama. Not much sex, though, so I don't know how our ratings would be. Maybe it's more of a Christopher Guest-style mockumentary.

The tan girl scared me. She'll be a leather-face by 30 at the rate she's going.

Yeah, TV is great. Gen Church is on a media fast right now though, I guess. So no TV for them. :(

Oh and it's Stephen Colbert. GET IT RIGHT!

My apologies, about spelling his Stephen's name wrong. Does he not give the best interviews though? His show is pretty good, but his interviews are fantastic.

Oh yeah. His interviews are absolutely great. Especially when he completely disagrees with everything the person believes. SO FUNNY
