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 →

Of Love Lost to Taxidermy

Tonight’s rather tame episode was, for me, a tale of four women. First, in preparation for my musings, I fast-forwarded back through the entire show to refresh my memory.

While I don’t believe I was throwing shade, I do agree that on occasion that condescending eye-rolly thing... Continue Reading →
