A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about Big Head Todd being an awful band in the studio but a very good band to see live. That is quite a rarity, because usually it’s the other way around. Which begs the question: what other bands are terrible in the recording studio, but very good live? Anyone have any thoughts on that one?

You know, I always knew American Idol was popular, but over the last few weeks, I’ve really gotten a sense of just how popular it is. There people I know whom I would have never, EVER, suspected of watching, and being entertained by, American Idol. My dad, for one. Guys from my hockey team. It surprises me when I hear about this. I guess I’m overlooking a true cultural phenomenon. I never watch it and never really have. Oh, I watch the occasional tryout show, but even that has turned into something that feels a little staged now. The one person who I thought really had a terrific voice was Frenchie Davis and they kicked her off the show. I can admit some of those people can sing, I just never get hooked into it. I’m clearly in the minority.

Now, watch as my traffic goes up for a few days because I mentioned American Idol……
