I’m really sick and I have been for the past three days. My macrophages are being overwhelmed, and it seems that my Classical AND Alternate cascades are not functioning at their optimum levels. Yes, being sick sucks.
But the good news is that The Chargers are in first place and pending a win today against the Chiefs, will remain there for another gabillion years.
Being sick and in bed gives me time to catch up on what’s been going on around the world, and after much consideration, I’ve determined that there are TWO things that are a waste of time:
1. Tiger Woods’ car accident
2. Adam Lambert
Seriously… who REALLY cares about Tiger Woods’ car accident? Thousands of people get in car accidents everyday, yet when I go online, the first story that pops up on Yahoo! is something about Woods and how he’s FINALLY going to talk to the police today. Wow. Give the man a cigar. I can’t WAIT to see what his reason for crashing was. Maybe it’s different than everyone else’s reason: he lost control of the car.
Ok, enough about that.

If you haven’t seen this yet, you need to… true, I’m a few months late to the party, but in this case, I really wish I never showed up.
Holy Murdering-A-Song, Batman!
I honestly cannot recall the last time I cringed like that…
What the hell is he doing???? I don’t think he gets the message of the song. All he cares about doing is hitting as many notes as he can… to hell with whether it actually FITS. Has he even HEARD the original?
Or even more importantly, has he ever taken the time to understand what the song’s talking about? It’s not about anger, it’s not a screamer, it’s not a belt-it-out-till-your-head-explodes-Michael Bolton-style kind of song… and man alive, he murders it.
Who CARES if you can sing all over the place if you can’t convey a message? That’s the problem with this performance: it’s teaching the young singers that the most important thing is to see how many notes you can sing in the shortest amount of time. It’s teaching them that in order to be a great singer, you need to be able to do all the vocal acrobatics that don’t matter when it comes to the SONG, and THE SONG is the only thing that matters. I am shocked that Simon Cowell liked it. If “One” is, in fact, one of his “favorite” songs, then he should have thrown his chair at Lambert with that wily grin he so smugly displays like a medal.
Lambert’s butchery of “One” makes me even more sick than whatever’s trying to kill me inside. I’m curious… does anybody here think that was actually GOOD?
Ahhh… that’s much better.
