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 →

Paradise and Stuff (mostly stuff)

This blog comes a little late as Tuesday night I was caught up [cue Usher] in my own real reality rather than my favorite edited-for-storyline-purposes reality and was not able to watch Paradise in real-time (is time even real in Paradise?). I am caught up (that song is an epic, classic banger) now and I... Continue Reading →

Did We Need This?

Texts between MDD and I I am not one given to profanity, especially in a public forum, but wow, Tuesday’s agonizingly long episode was a total shit show. Yep, worse than a cluster**** (I already used up my profanity allotment) and way worse than a dumpster fire. The stench is so deep, I fear I... Continue Reading →

Broke, Broke

Broken. The Bachelor franchise is broken. It’s always been stupid and once upon a time, we were fine with that. But now it’s moved beyond stupid to a place where we feel stupid for devoting our lives to something so stupid. The conceit of the show has been that their “process” can lead two people...

Preparing for the Most Shock Ever

We interrupt this blog for more breaking news on the Flo-Olivia-Harry-Chris-Shia[1] situation. Not really. But the way that Jessie, and then the Evil Genius Producers (EGPs) previews made the last five minutes sound, it’s basically as hot a mess as the Don’t Worry Darling cast but with less famous people. The previews – to the... Continue Reading →

The Men Tell Small

Monday night’s The Men Tell All was brought to you by Virgin Voyages, who has the juice to make the Evil Genius Producers (EGPs) move a Rose Ceremony out of the show to make time for an in-show live promotion. Holy PR, Batman! Jessie said we could see the Rose Ceremony where ALL six guys... Continue Reading →

Letting the (falling) L-words Fly

This week’s episode was brought to you by The Spinners and their 1972 #4 hit Could It Be I’m Falling in Love and Alicia Key’s 2001 #1 song Fallin’. What do two girls visiting seven guys’ hometowns in two hours look like? Actually, we didn’t find out because the Evil Genius Producers (EGPs) could only... 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 →
