Welcome to the New Blog!

Once upon a time, there was Idol Musings. Since February 2008, I have written faithfully on American Idol (and occasionally the other reality singing shows) with insight, snark humor and self-righteous candor. And Adam Lambert. I’ve written a lot about Adam Lambert. And within the blog’s 618 posts, I also wrote occasionally about music in... Continue Reading →

COVID on the Cruise Ship

Boys and Girls, as I might say in Bachelorese, this process isn’t working for me. It feels like the season just started but we’re already coming to Hometowns with SEVEN guys. If you say “Spencer” or “Ethan” or “Tyler”, I wouldn’t know who you were talking about. And if you said that you were sorry... Continue Reading →

Logan Stirs Things Up

Our venue has moved to the beautiful city of Bruges, Belgium where Rachel has high hopes [cue High Hopes Panic! At the Disco] of moving past her multiple rejections and enjoying looking for love in this romantic city. We already know that she has no shot, but the Evil Genius Producers (EGPs) turn the volume...

There are dangerous stereotypes being played with here and they are neither fun... Continue Reading →

Once. Twice. Three Times Rejected.

Football was a big subject of this week’s episode, so it’s only fitting that the show felt like a dull game that suddenly got filled with drama in the last half of the fourth quarter. We should have known right from the kickoff, though. The guys were having conversations about which ones liked Gabby, which... Continue Reading →

A Midi Dose of Mini Dramas

This week, your Friendly Neighborhood Muser is coming to you from Petaluma, California. [cue The Village People San Francisco (You’ve Got Me) and Dionne Warwick Do You Know the Way to San Jose because I don’t know any songs about Sacramento] Once again, with so many guys still here, it’s hard to find a thread...

Double My Pleasure. Double My Fun.

Welcome to the 2022 Edition of THE MOST SHOCKING SEASON IN BACHELORETTE HISTORY!!! Said season comes at an auspicious time for me. While I continue to bask in the glow of my beloved Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors winning the chip, that glow also comes with no meaningful basketball to watch since June...
