Beyond Pointless

First and foremost? I continue to watch American Idol and…

Are you all sitting? Seriously. You’re going to want to sit down for this.

You’ve been warned.

Clay Aiken performed and was I in heaven. Clay Aiken would definitely fit into the category of My Dirty Little Secret file. Clay… is soooo dreamy. I have loved that man since he got his makeover when he was a contestant on the show. And you know what? I don’t care who knows! Yes! I dig Clay Aiken and (get this) I also got his album when it came out. Sure, this did get me banished into The Land of No Return within my group of friends, but damn, it was worth it. Oh Clay. *swoon*

Anyway, let’s move onward and hopefully I didn’t make myself out to be a total geek.

An apology in advance for any of today’s post being completely random and quite possibly incoherent.

Last night wasn’t exactly what I would call a good night. Yes, my team did win but if you had watched the game you would understand why I’m not as ecstatic about it as I should be. The rest of the evening also did not go too well. I have only one word to say regarding it: Fuck. And no, not Fuck in a good way.

Now, America, I’ve got an enquiry for you. Are Ipod listening rooms/lounges/etc. popular down there? I ask that question because the bar I was at last night had Tuesday Ipod Listening Night. Upon questioning, “What is this Ipod Listening Night you speak of?”

Oh God. I’m sorry. I’m still watching American Idol and goddamn, speak of the devil. If it isn’t Prince himself performing on stage.


Okay, focus. After asking the bartender, “What is this Ipod Listening Night you speak of?” he explained that all you have to do is bring in a playlist, on your Ipod, and they’ll play it in the bar for you with their large and in charge, fancy speakers for all to hear. He mentioned that in the States this was very popular and that it’s, “Happening all over.”

Is this true? I mean, being up in Canada and all (eh) I wouldn’t quite know.

As well, I am able to admit that I am an obsessive label peeler. And not just any label, but beer labels. I am completely UNABLE to drink a beer without having the labels all peeled off. And that’s not all. I have to place the labels PERFECTLY in an EXACT position facing me. Otherwise? I get all edgy. Maybe tomorrow, if I remember, I’ll bring my camera to show this. No, wait. Tomorrow, after the hockey game, I’m going to see an Iron Maiden cover band… not too sure if I want to bring my digital camera with me. Back to what I was saying. Even the bartender, last night, mentioned that he’s going to have to take the labels off before giving me the beer. It is just that obnoxious.

Sorry, mild interruption. YESSSSS. Taylor won American Idol. After Chris got kicked off? And Elliot? I knew that Taylor had to win. HAD.TO.WIN.

See? I warned you this would be all over the place!

OH! Slowly, but surely, I am getting the hang of this bass guitar playing; although, I admit, I still am finding myself trying to play it like a guitar. I did manage to learn to play Another One Bites the Dust by Queen! Shhh... Yes, I realize it's an easy one.

I just cleaned all three nose piercings.

This is probably the most pointless entry I have to date.

Hmmm... I live in a hick town, so I don't know about the ipod listening night. I know they have electronic jukeboxes these days, where you can download music right to them.

Truth is, I wouldn't want to listen to what most probably have on their ipods. I'll stick to the original jukeboxes...

I don't know myself. I am in Boston, but I only own an iPod shuffle, and don't frequent clubs all that much, so I couldn't tell ya.

So Prince was on American Idol? The world's sexiest vegetarian IN THE FLESH? You must've been SO PSYCHED!

And "Another One Bites the Dust" is a fun bassline to play; keep it up!

Nick - Electronic Jukeboxes?? Wow. We definitely do not have those here. The only jukeboxes I've seen are the original ones and I admit I am a sucker for them. As of right now, I'm undecided whether or not I like this Ipod Listening Night. On one hand it's good because I get to play what I like. But the idea of having to listen to what other people may like, in which I may not like, I don't like (or something like that).

Alex - Prince was on American Idol! I had a difficult time trying to not laugh (because of my cold, everytime I laugh I go into a massive torture coughing fit). To be honest, Prince did put on a good performance.

Of course Prince put on a good performance: he is the Purple One. Interpret that as you will.
