| Who will be the next Kelly Clarkson?!
| Tuesday, March 14, 2006
|Reuben Stoddard, Fantasia Barrino, Carrie Underwood.
They all won in American Idol but none of them ever became as infamous & Grammy-worthy as Kelly Clarkson. I mean, sure she's talented but the other 3 Idol winners that came after her sound a hell of a lot better than she does.
Then again, maybe its just too early to tell, after all Clarkson only hit it bigtime after what, 3 or 4 years after she won in Idol.
But could the "likability factor" Simon has been babbling about all these years be one of the much needed traits in making the next Kelly Clarkson? After all, Simon kept on saying that Clarkson was really likable during the first A.I.
Does having the stigma of being the first ever Idol contest winner have something to do with her superstar status?
Observe. In the Philippines, we also have Idol-like contests and only the first ever winners become famous and memorable.
Sarah Geronimo, Mark Herras, Jennelyn Mercado. They're the only channel 7 winners that I remember. There were other grand prize winners that came after them but no one could even hold a candle to the fame that the first time winners are experiencing right now.
Oh well, just speculating here.
And now, back to American Idol.
The TOP 12 has finally been chosen and already I have a couple of picks on who could establish Kelly Clarkson-like status.
For the guys...
He is the most perfect guy I have ever seen. Good looks, great voice, beautiful eyes. Good job GOD! Good job!
Semi-mysterious aura, grungy rocker-dude with an amazing voice that gives you the chills.
Unique tone to his voice, extremely charming with epileptic dance moves. Paula loves him, Simon loves him and I love him as well.
For the girls...
It's a lot tougher since all of the girls are extremely talented. I mean REALLY talented. There's just one more girl I want out but the rest are really good. Ultimately, if a girl would win, I'm gonna go with Katherine McPhee. She makes Xtina Aguilera's voice seem plain in comparison.

|Ok! It is definitely official! I'm not being paranoid or anything!
ALL ANIMALS ARE OUT TO GET ME!
Whether in the office or at home, there is always some sort of animal out to harm my very existence.
In my old work station, there used to be ants that would always turn my mug into a swimming pool. So I stupidly thought that I would be animal-free when I transferred to my new work station. But I was wrong...
Now, in my new station there would "Mickeys" running around & they would gladly challenge you in a staring contest. Most of the time, they would end up winning. They would also dance around between your feet just to mock you. And as a personal insult, one of the "Mickeys" decided to have a picnic inside my pedestal and binge on my Swiss Miss stock. Then, probably as a thank you for the scrumptious meal that I unwittingly provided for it, it decided to decorate the surroundings of my PC keyboard with its droppings.
Awwwww...You're most welcome "Mickeys!" I shall treasure them forever. Come next pest control in our building you're all gonna die!
Then I head back home.
Home. A place of peace and solace. Or so I thought...
As soon as I get home at around 8PM, what greets me are stupid chirping birds!
African lovebirds to be exact.
Sure they may look pretty and sound pretty (according to my mother).
BUT THEY DO NOT SOUND PRETTY AT 6AM WHEN I'M NOT SUPPOSED TO GET UP FOR WORK IN ANOTHER 2 HOURS!!!
Try putting the stupid birdcage next to YOUR window mother! Let's see if you don't tape their beaks together!
I am so not a bird person.
I mean, you can't pet it or cuddle it or play with it. Birds can't attack would be burglars! They're not loyal at all. Leave their cage open and they'll fly right out and never return (Yes, I am aware that dogs do that too. I'm just being biased.) And you don't hear amazing stories about birds saving their owners from danger. Birds are only good for stupid pet tricks and for amusing deaf people! Plus, they can give you BIRDFLU!
For me the only good things that I could get from a bird are KFC and Max.
Sigh...I miss my dog Mikee, he may be cross-eyed but at least he doesn't chirp annoyingly and he never woke me up at 6AM!

|Yeah, yeah...so I said that I was back from my hiatus blah, blah, blah.
But I am currently undergoing the worst mental & creative dry spell ever!
I don't know what to write about considering the fact that everything in my life seems crazy (as usual).
Hmmm...come to think of it, I don't think there was ever a moment happening in my life that wasn't crazy or stupid.
Workwise, I deemed myself as a "poser."
Its been one month and yet I AM STILL A NOMAD!
My work station transferred before I did! Geez! What a loser!
I have no social life since my sched is all fucked up.
I have no money. Well I have some money, just not enough. I mean it'll never be enough!
* * * * *
I can't find the stupid cds that I've been dying to get!
By the way, if anyone has info about where I could get the following please message me! I beg you!
1. One Tree Hill Vol 2: Friends with Benefit
2. The O.C. Mix 2
3. Jack's Mannequinn Album
4. Something Corporate's Album
5. ANY Album from Jimmy Eat World

I'm also itching to get my hands on the latest episode of LOST (kasi sobrang bitin siya! as in! yung nakakainis na bitin talaga!) but I can't cause it hasn't even been shown in the U.S. yet. I heard they're doing reruns for some stupid reason. I think it's the 15th or 16th episode of season 2. Hey LOST peeps! You have got to stop doing this to your viewers! We're dying here!
* * * * *
I never get to see American Idol anymore because of my stupid schedule! And the repeats are too late for an old person like me already! Geez! 1130?! I'm half asleep by then! Do you see the loser that I've become...asleep by 1130. Tsk, tsk, tsk...
I mean I just want a glimpse of Ace Young to keep me happy! IDOL is wise. They always place Ace's performances at the end of the show so you have to watch the entire show and in my case stay up late and die to see him.
But it was all worth it. Have you seen the guy?! He is soooooo hot that he makes Constantine look like shit! Plus it doesn't hurt that he's talented too! How has he not yet been discovered all this time?! He made the song "Butterflies" by MJ seem manly!
Speaking of IDOL, I think America made a huge mistake by not voting so much for Gideon! That guy was good! That last song he performed was...WOW that he made Paula Abdul do her seal-like clapping thingy again! And he was so much better than the goofy long haired guy w/ a twin and the teeny tiny dude who looked like a cross between Harry Potter & Chicken Little. And yeah as much as I hate to admit it, a heck of a lot better than Ace's performance. Oh well, I guess he wasn't likable enough.
* * * * *
Well, that's all what's in my mind now folks!
See yah when I have a better idea! Hmmm...I think I'm finally getting one as I type this.
Anyway, Sane Psycho signing off...
