On an e-mail loop I'm on we called him Sausage Fingers.

He totally gave me the creeps. He looked like the kind of guy who might have some family members buried in the basement.

I think I discussed this topic already in an earlier post on this thread.  I would venture to say that I'm good but I'm not overly confident right now.

And let's not forget the fact that he could not sing whatsoever.  But he sure as hell THOUGHT HE COULD!  (Remember when he said, "I'm the real rocker here!"  Ah, Scott, you wish.)

I'm trying to keep my laugh lines to a minimum, but jeez this place is funny! Where's the Botox?

Hoo boy, did I open up a can o' worms by mentioning Simon Cowell?? 

Truth be known, I never have watched even one minute of American Idol in my life!!  I'd much rather see people (semi-pro singers, at that) do good rock songs, with actual musicians being the judges--like that show "Rockstar:INXS" or "Rockstar:Supernova" from a couple of years ago.  I'm not into that pop-type crap like the amateurs do on American Idol. 

I just am aware of Simon by reputation, and I did read his autobiography when it came out!

Simon can be OVERLY critical on the show. I think he is ADORABLE, but WAY too arrogant! I have been watching the auditions (because they are fun to watch, I give them all credit ~ a lot of these people really believe they can sing.)
Some of the people who were turned away I thought were really good,and devistated when they didn't get to move on. What it comes down to is the JOY singing brings to a being! I LOVE to sing, am I good? I have been told so by some. Does it matter that I have been told? Nah, because it brings joy to me and makes me feel good to do so! So I guess it comes down to personal joy, or public satisfaction. There's that old line " Ya see,you can't please everyone, so ya gotta please yourself".

Well, I know if anybody ever told my brother he sucked at music, it wouldn't matter. He'd still do it. It is a part of his soul. It happens that he is actually very talented-a Berklee College of Music graduate-but I think he'd still love it just as much if he wasn't good at it. Music is a part of who he is. As for the question, are you born with it? I can tell you my brother used to do things when he was little like hear a TV theme song and then run to the piano to try to figure it out. So he always had an interest, but he also has spent tons of time developing his skills. God knows I had to listen to him practice his guitar for hours and hours and hours ... But to him, that wasn't practice, it was fun. The Simon Cowell's of the world would never stop him ...


I also had a friend in junior high school. We were all singing a song and she opened her mouth and a powerful, Broadway type of voice came out of her. She was just born with it, she didn't even know there was anything special about her voice because the rest of her family had powerful pipes too. She moved and we lost touch, but I think even if you're born with a gift like that, you have to develop it.

Nah, RoA.  Simon's great fodder for discussion.  And I loved "Rockstar: INXS" as you probably remember!  I think that JD was a good choice but I also liked Mig quite a bit.
