I am all for free speech…but that doesn’t mean respect needs to fly out of the window in order for some artist to practice his first amendment right.  In 3Oh!3’s new song, “Don’t Trust Me,” the following lyrics are uttered from their desperate, fame seeking lips: Shush girl, shut your lips. Do the Helen Keller […]

Summer is a time for new music.  It fills itself with countless concerts, poolside boom boxes and humming cars impatiently waiting for a green light.  One CD that should be present in your car or swim bag is Ken Block’s “Drift.”  “Drift” is Ken Block’s first solo album and was released last December.  However, as […]


Winner:  Kris Allen Group song with top 13:  So What?  (I’m Still a Rockstar).  Ooo yikes.  No good.  Pink should stick to that song.   David Cook: Permanent.  How surreal it must be to sing at the finale.  A year ago he was probably a nervous wreck.  Now, he’s a platinum artist.  No big deal. Norman […]


                          VERSUS             Adam Lambert and Kris Allen.  For once in my life, I’m not really sure who will win this competition.  Sure, Adam is predicted to be the favorite, but is he going to be able to hold […]


Wahhh! I have been lucky enough to get my hands on a CD that hasn’t even been released yet! Don’t worry, though. So Glad I’m Me comes out this Tuesday, May 19th, so you don’t have to wait too long. (A bit of info in case you aren’t as idol-crazed as I am: Lakisha Jones […]


Let’s have some fun, this beat is sick.  I wanna take a ride on your disco stick.  Don’t think too much, just bust that stick.  I wanna take a ride on your disco stick. Aaaand repeat. Wow, really?  Does she want to be taken seriously?  I’m all for good fun in songs, but that’s awful […]


Aside from learning that I am a total sap (yes, I bawled my eyes out during this elimination; judge me), I realized that American Idol does much, much more than create musical superstars.  An idol can be given free cheese dip for life at his favorite restaurant (Kris) or wear snakeskin shoes and not be […]


Down to 2…

Guesses as to who will be in the final two?  Prediction:  Kris Allen and Adam Lambert. Also, love Noah, the guy who wants to be a superstar.  He learned “The World’s Greatest” in a week…and he’s from Rawanda…and doesn’t speak English.  Craziness.


After the University of Illinois Concert Choir finished the last note of Shenandoah, finding a dry eye in the first row was nearly impossible.  No, people were not crying because they were feet away from celebrities.  Tears were shed for a very different reason. Titled “Zum Schluss: A Farewell Concert,” the Concert Choir’s spring concert […]


The final 3…
