American Idol: Never Name Yourself After Food

Welcome to the latest edition of our new series: 
The Bud and Mimi Review: American Idol.  

Words cannot totally express our excitement, we are forced to continue this venture, nonetheless.
We came, we saw, we spoke. Again.

Bud: What were we thinking?
Mimi: I've been thinking that your cab driver Hamied could have driven me back from Connecticut faster than that plane. The plane ride from hell only took twenty hours for 700 miles.
Bud: No, Mims. I meant...
Mims: I knew what you meant Bud, you miss me already. We're getting sooooo emotional… Like that singer who couldn't even talk.
Bud: Actually, Mimi, I was talking about American Idol.
Mimi: Oh. Right. Bud, what do you think people thought of our first American Idol Review?
Bud: Mimi, they were torn. A few ACTUALLY suggested that we should review both nights!
Mimi: Didn't we explain this feature is geared to the Final 12 and we want to review them before the vote?
Bud: How could we have explained that to anyone? We hadn't figured that out ourselves until after our first post.
Mimi: So what did people think?
Bud: They were torn between having us just stop the series and voting us off the blogosphere entirely.
 Mimi: Bud, tonight was shot in Memphis. Did you think that kid channeled Elvis?

Bud: The Jimmy Walker look-a-like? I'd say change the channel.
Mimi: How did you like Sundance Head?

Bud: Pardon me?
Mimi: Roy Head's son?
Bud: Oh yea. He was the show. And that "back-up singer" was cool, too.
Mimi: And then there was that kid who called himself "Frank & Beans."
Bud: Never pick a food item for your stage name.

Mimi: How did you like the woman in that dress that kept falling off her?
 Bud: Mimi, I'm a guy. But that said, I was not a fan of the disco stripper. How about that heartbroken guy who flirted with Paula and who had lost his wife? 
Mimi: Yeah, that was a puzzler. Who would leave the Pillsbury Dough Boy? And then there was Fidel Castro. They say he's been sick, but other than that weird "do" he looked all right.

Bud: I thought he looked like "Cousin It". He did sing well. I was really impressed with the new father who left his 9 and a half pregnant wife alone. "Have the baby, babe. I'm off to Hollywood!"

Mimi: He sang well.
Bud: Explain that to her divorce attorney.
Mimi: Do we do this again?
Bud: Of course. I miss you already.
Mimi: The AI Review.
Bud. Right. Same time. Same blogs.
Mimi: But better?
Bud: No shot.

Join us next Wednesday if you are up to it. Or don't. It really is up to you.

Update:  Can someone say over? As in cancel this episode?
 Perhaps it was my taste in music.

I'm sure at some time during the week, we are showing American Idol, but I figure I can just get the highlights from you. I watched a part of Larry King and they had a lot of the tryout people, good grief.

Bond said...

They had decided to show very few of the good singers this year. It is too bad they are totally concentrating on the bad.
nice wrap up

I'm glad you two are doing a review as I've decided I have no interest in watching the try-out portions of the show. Truth be told, I am tired of seeing them pick on people and making them look like bigger fools on national TV than they have managed to make themselves look.

Honestly, all they seem to want to show are the wretched souls that, if they had just one good friend in the whole world to tell them not to do it, would not making idiots of themselves like that.

And the really stupid thing - not sure if you caught this - is that there were two of the rejects on The Today Show the other day who have gotten themselves agents even though they have no talent whatsoever but were "picked on" by the judges.

Is this what America is coming to, we promote bad talent and make them stars?? Good grief!

Sorry for the rambling comment ... I'm just going to close by saying you keep reviewing, I'll keep reading, and everyone else can keep watching as I'm sure I've got better things to do even if they only include sorting through old papers or filing my nails!

SGT - Thus far, you haven't missed much.

Mimi Lenox said...

Bond - I agree. Thanks. We enjoy working on this together!

Mimi Lenox said...

Linda - Tell us what you really think. (grin)

Simon Cowell said...

You have a wretched post. Can you just stop before legal action is necessary?

Mimi Lenox said...

I'll have to ask my partner in crime, BudWeiser. He is the brains behind this operation. So remember that when you file suit. Don't tell Bud I told you that though.

simon cowell said...

Do you think it matters that you drink Budweiser? I don't care if you bathe in Dom. Your post is horrible.

SGT DUB said...

Now, is that no talent get's agent or bad talent get's agent? Remember, that guy from the first show was able to get an album and made close to a million dollars, no talent at all, but got his 15 minutes of fame.

My Marrakech said...

You two sound like you are in lurve.....:-)

Mimi Lenox said...

Right, SGT. There is no justice in this world.

Mimi Lenox said...

Maryam - You are very perceptive.
And it's very nice.

that frolicsome kid said...
