American Idol... Flamer Boy vs. Actual Talent...

So here’s the Dimwit’s thoughts on American Idol: Season Adam…

1) The producers anointed Flamer Boy as their winner a long time ago, even instituting the “Judge’s Save” as a means to keep Adam from getting booted off early. Seriously, you think that they had Matt Giraud in mind when they thought that up? Hell no. They knew that since Flamer Boy was a bit of a polarizing figure, they were afraid he wouldn’t hold the audience attention long enough to win the votes.
2) What’s with all the girls swooning over Adam? He’s obviously not interested in them. The Dimwit will never understand the female attraction towards gay men.
3) Kris is well within the Jason Mraz cookie cutter of pop artists and should do well, whether he wins or not. The Dimwit would buy 1,000,000 of his albums before he bought even one Flamer Boy single.
4) What’s with shrieking EVERY NOTE? Really, Adam, we know that you can shriek… how about you do a song where you don’t sound like nails on a chalk board throughout, then we can see if you have talent… or if, in fact, you are just a theatrical no talent ass clown that AI has pimped out there for all of America to suffer through.
5) So glad Gokey didn’t make it last week, he was a bit too annoying personality wise. Much like that little punk Archuleta was last year.
6) The Dimwit will conclude his American Idol thoughts with this… No more American Idol. After this season, the Dimwit just can’t handle anymore of it. Adding Kara to the Judge Panel has been a horrible joke, Simon is somewhat disinterested when he isn’t flirting with drunk Paula. Randy has become irrelevant because he starts every sentence with “Yo dawg” which just instantly discredits anything he says after that. The talent pool just keeps getting shallower and shallower… So, farewell American Idol...

Well there you go everyone… the Dimwit hopes you have a great weekend. He won’t. The Hotwit is a bridesmaid in a wedding on Saturday, so he’ll be there instead of floating down a crisp, cool, Guadalupe River. Seriously, a wedding on Memorial Day weekend???? Do these people not know that Memorial Day weekend is meant for floating down a river, beer in hand? The Dimwit is off work Friday too, which means his 4-day weekend of relaxation and celebration is to be interrupted and thrown off course…

This is just fuel to the fire of the Dimwit’s distain for attending weddings. But then again, that’s another topic for another blog entirely… if he had a phone that would update this blog on the fly, he’d give a moment by moment update during the wedding, but then he’d be ruining your weekend too… hahaha…

Quick Update...

Ok, so the Dimwit has been relatively quiet this week... work, work, work...

So, how about the Rockets sticking it to the Lakers? One more game this weekend for all the marbles... The Dimwit will admit that he thought that the series was over once Yao went down with another broken foot. Seriously, get this guy some calcium supplements. His bones are more brittle than the Dimwit's 91 year old grandmother. So, with the series now pushed to a 7th game, winner take all, there is excitement in the air. Can they do it? Can they knock the Fakers from their self-appointed throne? ESPN, FOX, et al of course say that the Fakers are going to run away with game 7, because they are the Fakers. Sure, home-court advantage could be pivotal, heck with Jack Nicholas and all the other Hollywood bandwagon fans on board, sure there will be excitement in the arena. OR, what the Dimwit hopes for, there are some many rich celebrity types wanting to see the game that it leaves an arena devoid of any real fandom, leaving it quiet and less menacing if the Rockets start off as hot as they did in Game 4 and 6.

Ok, enough about basketball, because really, sports coverage is not what you people stop by here for. Here's the info that freaked the Dimwit out today... Gwen Stefani, YES, THE GWEN STEFANI will be 40 this year!!!!! The Dimwit admits that it is just another sign that he is getting old, but it seems like just yesterday that No Doubt hit the scene with Spiderweb... geez, next think you know someone's going to tell me that Tom Hanks is in his 50's... ack!

On a side note, isn't it about time we get Tom in another comedy... what's up with that? At what point did he stop looking at comedic scripts and say "Give me serious, Oscar-nominating roles or give me death!"? Tom, please... come back from the dark side... Make us laugh again! "ARE YOU CRYING? CRYING? ARE YOU... CRYING? THERE'S NO CRYING! THERE'S NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!"

Monday Morning... can't get excited...

What a wonderful weekend, right? The Dimwit helped get his brother moved into his new house, and then spent a lazy Sunday with the Hotwit. We also went and had dinner with the family for Mother's Day. (EDIT: Per the Hotwit, it wasn't a lazy Sunday because she cleaned the apartment while the Dimwit watched basketball.)

We watched a couple of episodes of Six Feet Under... went to Target and bought the first two seasons of Dexter. The Dimwit has to get caught up on the first three seasons, as the 4th seasons starts in the fall.

But the highlight of the day yesterday was the Houston Rockets PHENOMENAL performance against the L.A. Fakers/Lakers... 34 points from Brooks??? 23 from Battier??? If you told the Dimwit that Artest would only score 8 points, and the Rockets would win sans Yao... well, the Dimwit would have just laughed at you... GO ROCKETS!!! BEAT L.A.!!!!

Not much to report... same old stuff, different day... Monday's suck, but what's new?

Wednesday is almost Thursday, which is actually Friday... YAY!

Alright, so the Dimwit has Friday off this week, which means today is kind of like Thursday... it's screwy logic, but it works.

How long has it been since linkage? FAR too long!

1) The official uniform of The Dimwit Fantasy Football Team.
2) In anticipation of the movie the Dimwit is MOST excited about this year...
3) Nothing wrong with this shirt either... wish it were true...
4) HOTWIT: Birthday present idea #1...
5) Fun game if you have 30 minutes to chase off boredom... really not that hard, but fun...
6) Want to look like a total idiot at all times? Buy and wear these...
7) IF the Dimwit played chess, this is the chess set he would use...
8) Mmmmmmm... bacon...

Alright, there you go everyone! Have a great day!

HOLY CRAP!!!! A SUNDAY POST?!?!?!?!

The Hotwit thought it blasphemy that the Dimwit would post on Sunday, so as her punishment... see below...

















It's a couple of months old, but a fair representation. So, for those of you desperately wanting to know what the Dimwit and Hotwit look like... here you go... The Dimwit is signing off now, since he's getting rude comments from the Hotwit... Have a great week... new project at work tomorrow so there may be a lag in the blogage for a while... Peace out, word to ya motha... ish...

YAY!!!! IT'S FRIDAY!!!!! CELEBRATE GOOD TIMES, COME ON!

We made it to Friday!!!!! YAY!!!!

Things the Dimwit is tired of hearing about:

1) Swine Flu - media... seriously, stop making this out to be the end of the world...
2) Perez Hilton - shut up, no one really wants your opinion...
3) Miss America - shut up, no one really wants your opinion either...
4) Flooding in Houston - water will recede... it happens, it's called nature...
5) The Economy - capitalism at it's best involves volitility in the market place, especially with some of the morons these companies put in charge
6) Sacrifices CEO's are having to make - Mr. Big Bank CEO, come see my 401(k) and explain to me how you can't live in a world without your $15 million bonus check.
7) Government bailouts - either stop giving them out like candy or put some teeth in your legislation.
8) Political banter with no relevance - No more split-screen political discussions where two people attempt to yell louder than the other person. Nothing is accomplished, besides giving the Dimwit motivation to grab the remote and change the channel... which may be the best solution anyways...

Alright, so the Dimwit is a bit sour this morning... he stayed up late to watch the Rockets knock the Blazers out of the playoffs. Which was great because we did it without T-Mac, who is a big baby and egomaniac anyways.

Enough... The Dimwit is off to find a large cup of java... or at least another Dr Pepper... or some amphetamines... :-D
