Did you read your last mail from me, Missy? ;-) LOL
YOU ARE the Harem Babe—complete with competitive jewelry and accessories provided by KOHL’s
My son really dislikes Coldplay. :)
Your son isn't alone, LOL
What you laughing about? You’re the one in the lower left...and it is duly noted, you forgot lipstick!
Yes, I just didn’t have a chance to respond. LOL I kind of figured that.
Good evening SJ. As always, thank you for doing this thread. You do a great job and know that it is appreciated.
Got a real rant about Comcast stored up but I’ll answer my own comment and ask the indulgence of yon readers.
Hi, Ken :)
I love Time of the Season.
Every time I see Little Steven I think of one time he was talking about playing Silvio on The Sopranos and said, “90% of that character is the hair.”
I have a question.Who the FRIG is “Ray Chew”? For MONTHS I thought it was the phonetic spelling fo the name “Rachel” by someone with a mouth full of mashed potatoes, and a Gangsta jewelry collection now being worn by Randy!
Hi, SC! :)
I don’t know - I get it from votefortheworst.com
Hollie is doing great with this number!
I am laughing so hard I have tears in my eyes!
She was great - I just wish she would smile, show some personality.
She really knocked it out of the park. She’s really started to loosen up the last couple of weeks.
I have always liked Holly but realized her limitations, but I think the last couple of weeks she has really come on strong.
Did the turtle come out of her shell?
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ray Chew (born c. 1968) is an American musician who specializes in keyboards and contemporary and orchestral arranging.
Chew was a member of the Saturday Night Live Band from 1980 to 1983. As of the late 2000s, he is the music director for the syndicated television series Showtime at the Apollo, and the bandleader on the The Singing Bee.
Chew was the bandleader during the 2008 Democratic National Convention and at the Barack Obama Neighborhood Ball in 2009.
He grew up in the Grant Houses, located on 125th Street, several blocks west of the Apollo Theater.
As of 2009, he was a resident of Teaneck, New Jersey, having moved there from New York City in the late 1990s.
It was announced on December 30, 2010 that he will be replacing Rickey Minor as the new music director on American Idol.
Hollie can actually shake that thing........ for real!!
Jennifer’s makeup looks great - she is stunning tonight. I hate her.
Yeah, I agree. Those earrings must weigh a ton. Her lobes are all stretched out.
Evening Jonny . All
Really liked Holly.....
She’s like a little Ann-Margrock!
Two songs each again tonight. First batch will be songs from the 60's.
Hollie is first with "River Deep, Mountain High". The songs are allowed more room to breathe tonight, but this one keeps going on and on. Hollie's doing a great job with it though.
Standing-O from Randy, and I think Steven. J-Lo remained seated.
Steven: You stepped out and used your blues. You showed me you got it in you. Thank You, Lord.
J-Lo: A stronger prescence. Biting the song. A different kind of Hollie.
Randy: I loved it too! You gotta do it like nobodies watching. Yo, she's digging in! Very nice!
Seacrest says, after watching rehearsals, that Hollie's second song could be as good as the first.
I LOVE that “group” picture-—What do ya suppose would happen if it “suddenly” appeared on the “Whale Watchers” thread? LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(yeah, I know I am evil...but I’m damned good at it ;-)
I really liked his character on the Sopranos. That was my first ‘knowledge of him’. So, I really enjoy seeing this other side of him or seeing him with Springstein.
Just in case you didn’t know Randy was a producer..here is a picture of Randy ..producing...probably mariah carey ;-)))
Been watching some stuff on the Bee Gees. Never realized that singing falsetto could kill your back. Then I tried it. Yeah, it puts pressure on the back.
Those boys sure were talented..and underrated.
Ann Margert LOST on Ted Macks Original Amateur Hour program, to a guy that played Lady of Spain on a LEAF! LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I hit the DVR button on my remote and get this message from Comcast:
This feature is currently unavailable. Please try again later or call your cable operator for more information.
Check the other TV’s ....same message. Well just dag.
So we call up Comcast and get a voice message that Comcast is “aware” of the problem.
You know what? That’s not good enough. I think that message is dismissive, pooh to you who pay $250 a month for this service.
It’s not been workiing since 6pm or so thus it’s been a while.
“Technicians are working on the problem”.
First, how much I got to pay a month to be able to talk to a human being? I now pay $250 a month to Comcast and have been a loyal customer for over ten years. How much I got to pay a month, or how long be a customer, to be able to talk to a human beiing about my concerns? If I pay $500 a month, be a customer for twenty years, is that enough money, enough time?
Cause I’ve YET to be able to speak to a human soul at Comcast and I’m a bit sick of it.
I’m sick of silly platitudes like “Comcast is ‘aware’ of the problem” or “technicians are working on the problem.”
Dag, the DVR not working, that’s very unusual. This is not like some windstorm knocked down a pole. This smells of someone at Comcast pressed some wrong button and it’s night time, everybody went home, and they don’t know how to fix it.
Lame, lamer than lame, just flip me, the boob who pays the bills, the bird cause.....
Comcast is aware of the problem
Technicians are working on the problem.
LOL! Is that your Coldplay reaction? :)
Ray Chew. Sounds like something Jho would say.
I liked his character, too....until he killed Adrianna.
I KNEW P squared was going to The Letter
This letter should be returned to sender.
P squared is cute, charming...but like the guy you’ve friendzoned, he will never get out of that box.
I tend to agree....having been around when the original came out...I DO like P Squared, but it is all too true, that he has “HIS SOUND” and it never changes...that being said...if you LIKE his sound...he is a hit...if not....I have some old 45 RPM’s to sell you :-)
My grandmother had a big rhinestone pin like Randy’s!
Close up of Randy’s pin
Yes. You might give him a pity drunken make-out, but that’s where it begins and ends.
Don’t hit post...don’t hit post...don’t hit post.....
Hollie did a great job with that. I was surprised that it was her doing that one.
Since I’m on a roll tonight, let me just say that I do NOT like this kid with two names, I don’t think he’s all that, I sure don’t think he should be the next American Idol.
Jlo doesn’t know that song?
I thought that was just an awful rendition of that tune. I know they say put your own mark on it but that was crap. Making the song so far away from the original that no one recognizes is NOT admirable and these goofy judges, dopes all, are not convincing me that it was a good performance.
Anything else y’all want me to rant about? I’m fired up.
His choice is "The Letter" by the Box Tops. He's changed the arrangement. It's not bad. Less Dave Matthew-esque, which is good.
Randy: Yo, dude! Let me say this. You came out made it your own, vibed it up. Maybe it didn't have as much melody in the chorus. But in your own jam-bandy Phillip PHillips sort of way (it was great)
J-Lo: The song did lack a little melody. But you're so compelling to watch. You really are a dynamic performer.
Steven: Good news, bad news. I miss the melody. But you get away with it! Let your freak flag fly!
