Halloween will soon be here. Need ideas for a costume this year?
How about going as your favorite Idol contestant? Idol performers are not just known for their musical talent. The most memorable are known for their hairstyle! Just pop on one of these wigs and you’ll stand out in a crowd.
First, you’ll need your Idol Number:
Then pop on one of these “American Idol” wigs, and let the fun begin! See if you can guess who these Idols are:
Coming soon to a strip mall near you.

The American Idol Finale is coming soon. We are now down to the top (and I use that word loosely) 2 singers. We will now be forced to sit through what will probably go down in history as the most boring finale show ever! We can probably write the play by play before it even happens. (Does that make us like Paula?)
In one corner, we have Rock & Roll David. In the other corner, we have Balladeer David. Which will America choose? Who will wear the Pop-Tart crown?
For those of you who actually still believe that the winner has not already been selected, I hope you enjoy the show. (And please, say hello to the Easter Bunny for me.)
For those of you who will watch the show knowing full well that it doesn’t matter if you pick up the phone and dial, I have some advice.
Margaritas. A Big Giant Pitcher of Margaritas. In fact, if you want to be able to sit through both night’s shows, I would recommend renting or buying a Margarita machine. Not only will you be able to enjoy the craptastic show, but there’s a good chance that you won’t remember anything the next morning. And that could be a good thing.
I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.
I’ve learned through this blog and others, that there’s a whole world of fan sites that I’ve never known about before. So I was doing a little “research”, and couldn’t believe what I found. It made me happy for my ignorance up until now.
I found one particular thread disturbing. It was called “The Offical Archie Scenario Thread, Fulfilling Your Deepest Desires”.
It started off innocently enough, talking about him singing to the poster, going on a simple picnic, or sending roses. But the mood of the thread began to change. Soon, there were some pretty steamy scenarios that were being talked about. Whipped Cream included!
I understand fantasy, especially with teenage girls. But not all of these posters are teenage girls (or boys, there’s a separate thread for guys who have a crush on him). Some of them are grown women. They’re making up these stories and posting them on the internet for everyone to see. Seriously, what are they thinking, fantasizing about kissing or being with a 17 year old boy?
Somebody call Chris Hansen! In the meantime, I’m going to go take a shower…with bleach!
Ah, the internet. What a wonderous invention. A place that you can go, where nobody knows you, where you are free to be yourself. Where you can let your hair down and say what’s really in your heart.
Unfortunately, it seems that for many people, there seems to be a great deal of hatred and/or fear buried deep down inside them, just looking for a way to come out.
I thought of this while perusing the American Idol forum today. I was bored, and decided wasting some time there would be good for a laugh or two. Remind me never to trust my instincts again.
A few examples of what I found:
maybe gay bashing sometimes might just be justifiable
this kid plays for the pink team
men dont flaunt like that in public
Can you say drag queen?
These posts were made about Danny Noriega. For those who don’t watch the show, Danny is an 18 year old young man who auditioned for Idol and made the Top 24.
Now, I don’t post these quotes to talk about Danny’s sexual orientation. Don’t really care, it’s none of my business. (hmmm, where have I said that before?)
However, a few thoughts popped into my head as I was reading these comments. Would the same anonymous posters have the cajones to make racial comments about any of the minority contestants? If a contestant had a physical handicap, would that be fair game?
Homophobia is alive and well not only on the American Idol forum, but all over the United States. This same hatred of those we consider “different” has brought us slavery, native american genocide and many other shining moments in our history. Makes you proud to be an American, doesn’t it?
