I’m not pleased that Kristy Lee Cook has been voted off American Idol.
Really, I’m not.
So I decided to strike back.
I thought about hiring a private investigator to find out the names of every person who didn’t vote for Kristy Lee Cook, then get the names of their “husbandâ€™s name, her chidrensâ€™ names, her grannies and great grannies name. Her address phone number and email.”
Sound unbearably creepy, inappropriate, paranoid and neurotic? Well, maybe I shouldn’t do it… after all, this was just American Idol, not a 3-star Amazon review for a third-rate novel. If you read one frivolous thing today, make sure it’s that link.
I’ve chosen a different path – to bring justice to ye of little taste via the classics.
Gather ’round, folks. It’s time to listen to Larry Verne’s 1960 hit “Please, Mister Custer.” It was #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #9 on the R&B chart. [RSS readers, click here]
Take that, America.
And, on a loosely related note, I was tickled when The Iconoclast, the blog of New English Review, tossed up a post linking to Don Gibson’s “Oh Lonesome Me.” That was a most welcome surprise.
