Tivo: Tool of Satan

We got Tivo.

Damn it all to hell. (Bino notes that I'm cussing like a sailor of late. It must be the incessant rain)

Because if it weren't for Tivo, I wouldn't watch American Freaking Idol. Precious brainspace would not be taken up trying to figure out how Bucky made it into the top ten. Or Ace, for that matter. I wouldn't still be bitter about the untimely demise of that one Pinoy guy, Sway. I wouldn't constantly be thinking but the name Sway fits in so nicely with the names Bucky and Ace and wondering where it all went so very wrong. I wouldn't be wishing that someone would sing "Because the Night." Or "Brandy." Or "Unbreak My Heart." Or, or, or, or...

I hate Tivo.

We were cheering for Sway, too, because I found out that he's the son of a high school classmate of mine. He has a nice voice but he tried so hard to look so cool that it overpowered his voice. If he only focused on his voice and not how "grungy" he wanted to look. Simon was right when Ryan Seacrest asked him which of the two would go home. Simon said, "Sway, and not because of his voice."

Welcome to the Church of Tivo.
Sway got canned because he was a poser (which is what I think Madam Treasurer was saying). Also, he relied too heavily on his falsetto. I guess there just weren't enough old school Daly City Filipinos who waxed nostalgic over Phillip Bailey and EWF to keep Sway on board. (I think I heard that he went to our HS alma mater or at least one of the schools in our district)
Bucky made it to the top ten because he's the only boy singing country.
Ace made it because he's beautiful. Shut UP. He is.

Posing & relying on his falsetto?!! Dude, you're talking about Ace! AKA known as I'll-just-open-my-eyes-real-wide-so-I-look-all-vulnerable-and-then-I'll-take-the-easy-route-and-smile-and-everyone-will-fall-for-it-even-though-I-choose-to-sing-the-most-ridiculous-songs-ever-with-the-exception-of-the-suds-in-the-bucket-girl. Like having a scar on your chest and picking a song that mentions a scar should put you at the top? Pfffffffft. I swear, I'm the only person alive who can't stand Ace.

Not that I feel strongly about this or anything.

Speak up if you can't stand Ace!

Take it back. Take it back right now.

ver said...

You take it back! He is sooooooo gouda...

It's not that I expect him to win or anything...
Look, I don't want this to turn into another one of those blog bashing "episodes"... we should just agree to disagree.
Got crackers??????

WINE AND CHEESE, WHINE AND CHEESE...

I'm bringing crackers with my wine bottle (of course) coz I agree with Ver re Ace -- except I'd say triple creme not gouda that's how cheesey he is...

...and been meaning to tell you, Ver, I never got that white blazer and black fedora outfit of Sway until I read your (lovely) Manong post...

...let's work on the future. It's time for a Pinoy American Idol. Heh.

ver said...

Yes, yes, of course Eileen agrees with me! We are not to be lured in by doe eyes and lotsa white teeth, no sir.

Poor Sway and his poor fedora...

Yes, I agree that tivo is satan's doing. My brother has tivo and it's what got me hooked on Rockstar:INXS this past summer.

On a nerdy note.. it's a great research tool because tivo allows you access to all the junk that's out there.

UGH! Definitely satan's tool!
