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 →

Pushover Peter Preserves Who? Seriously?

Yes, I believe my last Musings had that, i.e. the fall of Krazy Kelsey. What I didn’t have, however, was given the choice between Krazy Kelsey and the Too Problematic for Cosmopolitan Victoria F.,[1] that the ever-predictable Pushover Peter would once again speed through all the warning signs and continue to chase the deranged Victoria...

Hometowns? Or Home?

The word “journey” first appeared exactly 3 minutes and 56 seconds after “Tonight on The Bachelor” so if you were playing along at home, you were allowed to take your first sip of your Bachelor beverage (Argentine Cabernet, here) earlier than usual tonight. Tonight was all about which girls Pushover Peter would take home to... Continue Reading →

The Tyrant Goes Off the Track

Lemme get this straight. Peter straight breaks up with Victoria P. – whose only fault is she failed to put respeck on white wine (an issue but not necessarily a deal breaker) – because he couldn't see her as his wife. By default this means the list of people he sees as potentially his wife... Continue Reading →

Let’s start with Pushover Peter[1]. It’s an admirable thing to find a positive quality in everybody you meet. It’s quite another to believe all... Continue Reading →

Is Peter the Problem?

Straight to the point – Peter is getting tiresome. He loves all the girls. He believes all the girls. He believes in all the girls. He so believes in all the girls that even when they screw up (which is quite often), he believes it’s his fault. Which, of course, is because he loves all... Continue Reading →

What a Fanasco

ESPN’s Michael Smith and Jemele Hill used to do a shtick called “Doin’ Too Much” which featured sports fans, uh, doing too much - and looking silly as a result. That’s the way I felt about Monday’s episode – that the producers were trying to do too much. It felt like there were hours of... Continue Reading →

It’s Not Over ’til It’s Over

My Daughter Cassandra’s (MDC) friend RM[1] came over for the second week in a row  – and so it’s official, I now have hosted Bachelor watch parties plural. Is there a badge or ID card for that or anything? The big themes from this week were the Hannah B./Peter Thang [HBPT] and Alexa’s fabulous hair.... Continue Reading →
