Posts Tagged ‘American idol’

Well, my bro and I were watching American Idol, the one with the duets.


So, after Crystal and Lee(my faves this season) finish theirs, Kara says the chemistry on stage was good.

My bro:      Why is she saying chemistry?
Me[trying to be nonchalant]:    I dunno, da.
Bro:       But chemistry’s a subject, no?
Me:    Ya. I don’t know why she said that.
Bro:     Why did Simon laugh for that?
Me[shrugs]:      I’m getting chocolate. Want some?
Bro:    Chocolate has chemicals, no?
Me[walks off to fridge.]


P.S.  I’m rooting for both Lee and Crystal. Crystal’s been one of my faves since the Hollywood round. She did Natural Woman, I think. Well, Lee is just great too.

Also; Lucid and BWC are done with college. The are now officially ‘senior akkas.’ Me, I have one entire month to go.  Joy.

iconator_81974403b92ca32b5a67efe2d6bd16abI just watched the performances for Rock week and as expected Adam absolutely did Kill it. He has to win. The guy is so versatile and he has amazing range. Honestly, I’ll listen to anything he sings. Anything.

Reasons why Adam should win Idol:lambert

  1. His range.
  2. His Versatility.
  3. His ability to perform each song that he does on stage.
  4. He’s theatrical.(Its a good thing).
  5. Everything he sings sounds amazing. He’s not had one bad performance so far.
  6. He’s awesome and if he doesn’t win Adzzie and I will SIT on you.

I felt bad for poor Danny! He seems like such a sweet guy, a really good vocalist and he gave it his best shot but I have to agree with Simon about the scream. It was terrible.

Allison was fantastic. I didn’t catch what the judges said though. I hope they liked it too.
Kris was just whatever this time. Its not his thing.

I was in a dilemma as to who my Top 2 were.This year’s Top 4 are all really good actually. It was either Adam and Allison or Adam and Kris. But, then I heard the duets. I was like, Oh. My. God. It absolutely has to be Allison and Adam.
So, this week’s elimination  should be either Danny or Kris.

Finally, if anyone reading this can vote (We can’t, since we live in India) is reading this. VOTE LAMBERT!

See ya ’round.

iconator_81974403b92ca32b5a67efe2d6bd16abHi people. How’s life treating you? I’m on vacation now (officially) because all the crap entrance exams are done.

Here’s a story for you. My family is famous for it spur of the moment travel plans.We’ll be sitting at home one day and then next thing you know, I’m calling Fuzzy or BWC from were the hell ever I am. As a result of another such plan, I am now at my Granparents’ house in Gwalior. Either way, the random things I’m going to talk about are

1. Clown Cars

This is retaliation to this post written by my dearest brother over on his blog. Well, for one thing his facts are incorrect and biased. The car in question looks nothing like a Clown car, as he suggests. It is a Honda City, brand new and a gorgeous red. (I will post pictures when I get home.) I’m so excited! My dad and I go to this wide stretch of road near our school at 6 in the morning whenever we can and he gives me lessons. In three months I will officially be 18 and can get a license. I can’t wait.

2. Idol Watch

Vote Adam Lambert. That is all.

3. What I’m reading this week

51ynk-ze4wl_ss500_The Duchess by Amanda Foreman. I didn’t think it was a proper biography when I picked it up. I thought it was more along the lines  of The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir, which I adore by the way. Its more realistic (?) than The Lady Elizabeth. She sounds like a very interesting woman. I’m about a quarter of a way through and its good so far.

4. What I’m listening to (I’m pretending there are people actually interested in reading this)

(In no particular order of preference)

  1. Come Back to Me                               -David Cook
  2. Light on                                                -David Cook
  3. She Works Hard for The Money     -Kris Allen
  4. Sway                                                     -The Pussycat Dolls
  5. Falling Slowly                                     -Kris Allen
  6. Feeling Good                                      -Adam Lambert
  7. If I Can’t Have You                            -Adam Lambert
  8. The Way You Look Tonight             -Kris Allen
  9. Mad World (Studio version)           -Adam Lambert
  10. Free Falling                                         -John Mayer
  11. Born To Be Wild                                -Adam Lambert
  12. Mad World (Live)                              – Adam Lambert
  13. You Found Me                                     -The Fray
  14. Alone                                                     – Heart
  15. One Week                                             -Barenaked Ladies
  16. Kiss From A Rose                               -Seal
  17. Jolene                                                   -Alexis Grace
  18. With me                                               -Sum41
  19. Iris                                                        -The Goo Goo Dolls

As you can probably tell, I’m having a bit of an Idol phase here.

4. Other Stuff

Hello! Yes it’s been a long time. *blame those exams*

 

“Imagine you cut an orange in half….” (That’s one of my favourite lines from the book, the significance of which you would realize a little later)

So yes, I just re-read “The Simoqin Prophecies” by Samit Basu.It’s brilliant. You should read it, if you ever lay your hands on it.

Basically, it’s a fantasy, with a mix of Indian and western elements. The one thing I love the most is the fact that Basu brings in themes, characters and events from “The Ramayana”, an Indian epic. Those who haven’t heard of the basic story might find it difficult to realize the connection.

The story basically revolves around Kirin, Maya, and Asvin; and is centered around 2 prophecies made 200 years ago by Simoquin. There’s a dark lord rising called Danh-Gem (which is Meghnad, backwards who is an evil guy from “The Ramayana”) who has to be defeated at all costs. (And no, It does NOT end up like Harry Potter.) There’s magic, there’s demons, politics, humour and racial fights, different world and aliens, and most importantly “The Gods” who decide your fate.  The world he weaves is intricate and you HAVE to read it to find out for yourself.

These books are brilliant especially by an Indian author who doesn’t settle for “good vs. evil” and “good” wins.

The 2nd book and 3rd book are called :

The Manticore’s Secret

The Unwaba Revelations.

 simoqin-propheciesThe manticore_s secretunwaba revelations

And besides that, Ive been watching Idol obsessively. Im an Adam Lambert fan. I hope its him and Allison in  the finals! Go Adam!

Laterz!

 David, the balladeer OR David, the rocker?

 

 

 It has been an amazing season, this American Idol ’08.  It was a great final with both of them giving it their best. (I was supporting David Cook)

w00t!! David Cook won. He was awesome. Thank you for voting for him.(as I can’t, living here in India) Here’s the video of the winning song : Time Of My Life by David Cook.

 

 If Archuleta won, it would’ve been like “rise to stardom”  sorta thing. Cook has more of a music background. Though Archuleta does have an amazing voice. They both will come out with great albums now. It was a great show. And I loved the clips showing Simon’s disgust. 🙂 We’ll have to wait for 8 months till the next season starts.

 That’s it for now. Cyaz.

Long, much? That’s exactly it, though.

The big question( that cranial jukebox I mentioned? Is now playing the Pink Panther theme! Ha ha.) : Which David? As a stout Cook fan, it pains me to admit it but Archuleta won all three rounds last night in my opinion.He made the better choices, the songs were situational..and his voice, as always.That’s not to say I’m giving up on Cook, no siree Bob! I thought the vocals to the second song were brilliant, but it probably would have worked more in his favor had he  sung Billy Jean or Always Be My Baby, although he said this was from a wish to perform something he hadn’t, already.Anyhow I say-though I’m not paid for it(hint!hint!)!-VOTE HIM,PEOPLE,VOTE HIM!

… Because I can’t.:(

Apart from that temporary lapse to cartoon themes back there, my faithful old ‘radiohead’ seems to be jammed on The Unforgiven (II) ,Metallica.Why?Why.I do love the song, but that is unrelated.[Also: the automated dictionary on this thing says ‘unforgiven’ is not really a word.There’s my ‘learn a new thing everyday’-chore all done,then (no,not really!Weirdo.)]

Since I have always been driven to do something productive (ha ha), here’s what last night’s work yielded:

My mom wonders why I must draw these ‘strange, unearthly people’ (mucho affronted!Nahh..)*Facepalm*

I didn’t realize until I was done that I’d manage to sketch yet another One-Eyed,ah, person(by very loose definition, I grant).Thanks to xlucidsanityx for pointing this subconscious craze out.Now I can wonder just what this signifies (Again folks: NO.Not really.Gettit? Just my little joke.), specially with respect to (what remains of) my sanity..

The first of the lot, i call her One-Eyed Creep:

In other news: I’m bored.Help! Not tempting? Hmpf.There’s gratitude for ya!

Hey ppl. If you’ve been following this blog, you would’ve realized that psychoticoddity has disappeared and is now fuzzylogic2000. (Do I hear “why fuzzylogic2000?”, Plz wait)

 

I tried logging into my account for about one whole day and couldn’t cuz it kept popping “incorrect password.” So I just cr8ed a new one.

 

Fuzzylogic becuz I was thinking of those fuzzy dice (aren’t they cute?)

 

 

 

And now, Idol watch:

Syesha’s out. It’s a David vs. David final.

 

Gooooooooooo David! (Cook, he’s the one!)

And yes, the producer’s  picked a not-so-good song for Syesha. And she took her elimination pretty well, unlike Brooke White. And I must mention that I love her name. (yes, I have an obsession for names!) And Archuleta’s pick was good, like completely different. Yeah, in a way it’s not him. But it was good. David Cook was good. Vote for him, all u ppl out there!

 

Anyhoo, later.
