American Idol 8 - Jamie Foxx?!?!?

current song: La La Land by Demi Lovato

$2.299 per gallon for unleaded gas at Costco.

Kris Allen... slow song... fast forward. Simon: I'm not at all enthusiastic as the other 3 (judges)... safe... nice... but not incredible... I don't get the felling that you can win this competition.

Allison Iraheta... slow song... fast forward. Simon: do you think you can win at this stage? Allison: I think we all can win. doesn't she watch ANTM? she should have said: frell yeah I'm gonna win! Simon: I don't feel that belief in you... great performance... you may be overshadowed by the other personalities... you may be in trouble.

Matt Giraud. he's still in the competition? slow song... fast forward. Simon: I disagree w/ Randy. why listen to the other judges anyway? I don't. listen to what Simon says. boooo! hisss! Simon: for me you're the only believable one I heard tonight... you love this muzik... thought I heard a little Nat King Cole... brilliant.

Danny Gokey. like his voice. listened to his performance for several seconds. fast forward to Simon. he's like: you got swagger... you got confidence... you proved your vocals... arrangement superb... outstanding.

Adam Lambert Simpson-Wentz. slow song. about to fast forward... but mesmerized by Nazi performance. Simon: Randy complaining you're theatrical is like saying a cow moos. again... only listen to what Simon says. he adds: you want to win... you bring it each week... best entrance by far.

fav performance this week by Adam.

24 (Day 7) - 03:00 to 04:00

current song: I Love College by Asher Roth

in past 24 posts I asked: when will Chloe save America? in tonight's ep the hottie MILF makes an appearance. shout out to Mary Lynn Rajskub: when you come to Hawaii... let's chillax at the beach... get our spacer bronze on... get some dranks. love her.

ep starts w/ Tony bein' a bad ass... kickin' ass. Walker puts out an APB... 2 federales hear it... Tony shoots them... removes vehicle's tracking device... drives off... meets Galvez to pick up bio-weapon. Galvez wants more money... Tony kicks his ass. rewind scene several times.

hottie impostor lawyer meets Tony. Tony's like: Hodges presented us w/ an opportunity... strike the enemy when they're down. she calls a quorum. is this Battlestar? they all vote to speed up their plans. is Will Patton... who plays Alan Wilson... the main bad ass?

Jack questions Hodges. in comes Chloe to save America. Taylor orders the CTU servers to be up and running... w/ Chloe in charge. she can't believe Tony's a traitor. I don't believe it. Tony = deep deep deep undercover.

Janice gives some cuntitude to the operation. Jack snaps at her. basically he's like: look bitch... if you gots a problem... get the frell out... Palmer ordered these computers up and running. Chloe knows something's wrong w/ her bud.

I think at the end of this season Jack will be seen dying. explanation of how he survived bio-weapon will be explained next season. I assume the federales got an antidote from Starkwood scientists.

Amazing Race 14 - Beijing, China

current song: Untouchable by Girls Aloud

Kisha & Jen 1st to get clue, which instructs them to fly to Beijing. pic from wikipedia.org. Luke: I'm done talking to them... we're gonna kick their ass. both teams arrive at the airport. Margie & Luke purchasing tickets... Jen asks another agent if she could help her and her sister... agent doesn't. Kisha & Jen: you don't speak English?... why is it that the Chinese always give us a dumb look? Margie & Luke can't purchase tickets at the counter... they all have to go to another. Kisha & Jen get to the other counter 1st. Margie: aren't we supposed to stand in line the order we came?

Tammy & Victor arrive. they get their Mandarin on. to the agents: we're in a race against these foreigners... please put us closest to the front... please seat the other teams in the back of the plane. Chinese agents: good luck. Tammy: if we don't survive the Beijing leg we'd bring shame to our family. Victor: we'd bring shame to the Chinese people.

teams arrive in Beijing... race to taxi cabs... race to foot massage establishment. Beijing looks ultra-modern w/ all its neon lights and skyscrapers. is this really Communist China? looks very Western.

roadblock. 1 team member drinks an awful cup of tea... get a foot massage... has another drank of tea. foot massage = painful. team member must endure 10 minutes of pain... or cry uncle... and start from beginning. Cara's 1st... screaming in pain. Kisha watches in terror. she's like: I'm afraid. Cara's crying. she's like: this should be illegal... shut the frell up Jaime.

all teams complete challenge and head to swimming complex. detour... sync or swim. in sync... teams jump off 3m springboards... must penetrate water in unison... score at least a 5 from 2 judges. in swim... teams get their Phelps on. they need to swim 400m (200m each)... relay style. Phelps' world record shown in comparison. Jaime & Cara: do we have to beat his record?... no... otherwise we would be in the Olympics.

Jen breaks down cuz she doesn't wanna drown. they're in last place. Margie & Luke: Kisha and Jen may be a force on land... but we kicked their ass in the water. Jaime & Cara arrive at pit stop 1st... but this grueling leg's not done.

America's Next Top Model 12 - Carmen Miranda

current song: Warrior's Dance by Prodigy

contestants arrive in Sao Paulo... huge city. I will win the Mega Millions. I will currency to travel to Brazil. girls greeted by hottie Fernanda Motta... host of Brazil's Next Top Model. ANTM becomes the Amazing Race. girls race around city. pit stop = some garden where they're greeted by 'the girl from Ipanema'... who gives them keys to their apartment. Fo and Natalie came in 1st... they win slippers w/ crystals.

contestants learn capoeira. they battle each other. Celia kicks Aminat in the head. challenge = perform what they learn at a shoot while looking fierce. Fo kicks ass and wins. she gets 50% more shots for the next shoot, which means one girl will have 50% less. she chooses Teyona. Fo: I'm still pissed Teyona didn't pick me when she won last week's challenge.

for this week's challenge girls pose as Carmen Miranda. to me she looks like a tranny. girls get all dolled. Sutan: this looks like a Saturday night for me. I liked Allison's photo best. pic from cwtv.com.

during panel Tyra's like: which one of you will be rotten fruit? boooo! hisss! judges like Allison's pic best. Aminat and hottie Natalie in bottom. Natalie eliminated. I thought it should have been Aminat... but she creates more drama. more drama = higher ratings.

Exercise from Honolulu to San Francisco = 2391 Miles

current song: Right Round by Flo Rida on Power 104.3 FM

my exercise journey from Honolulu to San Francisco began on 07.11.08. it 1st started out as a walking challenge. I bought myself a kick ass GDR blue Sportline pedometer. then I thought: walk 2,391 miles? cray-zay.

I decided to include all forms of exercise... walking, swimming, running, biking, rowing... to get my miles. I gave myself 1 cycle to complete this challenge... to reach San Francisco by 07.11.09. easy date to remember... all odd numbers. realized my goal 80 solar days ahead of schedule. I kicked ass.

I only needed 6.94 miles to reach the city. here's how I did it this afternoon. at the beach parking lot my pedometer read 4.80 miles... 2.14 miles to go. got my aquatic on. 0.63 mile estimated swimming distance... 1.51 miles to go. scheduled to run 37+ minutes to earn a drank. I officially ran into San Francisco. totally awesome.

I decided to pick a major city in the next time zone... chose Phoenix as the next destination. looked online for the distance. got several numbers... took an average. easy number to remember... 678 miles. Heil Health!

Simon: you look sad... glad you had fun tonight cuz this will be the last week we see you... no originality... copy cat performance... vocals a mess.

Kris Allen... She Works Hard For The Money by Donna Summer. I will win the Mega Millions. liked his version... stuck to his style. hmmm... he could be the next Jason Mraz. Simon: Paula... shut the frell up... polar opposite from the 1st performance of the night... original and well thought out... not karaoke... fantastic performance.

Danny Goke... September by Earth, Wind & Fire. good thing it's not a dance competition... painful to watch him gettin' his groove on. just turned away and listened. love his voice... okay performance. Simon: no fault w/ your vocals... overall performance, no star power... gotta do something special.

Allison Iraheta... Hot Stuff by Donna Summer. mesmerized by the Nazi colors. Heil her performance. Simon: brilliant performance.

Adam Lambert Simpson Wentz... If I Can't Have You by Yvonne Elliman. slowed down song to a sickening ballad version. fast forward. Simon: you did something unexpected... very original... totally new version and you'll be remembered for this... immaculate. hmmm... Simon and I not in agreement.

Matt Giraud... Stayin' Alive by Bee Gees. painful to watch. for some reason thought of Misfit by Curiosity Killed The Cat. fast forward to Simon's comments. he's like: I disagree w/ the others... I didn't like your performance... you're desperate... vocals not great... no originality... not a huge fan.

Anoop Dogg... Dim All The Lights by Donna Summer. ballad. fast forward. Simon: mediocre... I disagree w/ the others... horrible version... your worst performance so far.

loved Allison's Nazi themed performance best. Heil Allison.

Amazing Race 14 - Guilin, China

current song: Moloka'i Slide by Ehukai on Island 98.5 FM

Margie & Luke 1st team to leave at 09:36. clue instructs them to fly to Guilin, China. pic from wikipedia.org. once they land, take cab to some street... look for hair salon... search for next clue. Guilin looks nice.

Jaime & Cara: we know China's very populous... crowds not one of our favorite things right now... it would be much easier for us if we don't yell at our drivers. Tammy & Victor: hooray!... we can speak Chinese... we're excited cuz we're Chinese. one time for the Asians. Mark & Michael leave pit stop at 16:08... 6.5 hours behind 1st team.

I assumed all teams would be on the same connecting flight to Guilin. not so. 1st 3 teams of Margie & Luke, Jaime & Cara and Tammy & Victor had their flight delayed. Kisha & Jen's flight 1st to arrive. they're worried cuz they haven't seen any other teams.

upon arrival Tammy & Victor get their Mandarin on. to their cab driver: hurry... we are in a Race against 2 teams of foreigners... go fast. Margie & Luke know Tammy & Victor have an advantage. Luke: I wish we could go to a country where everyone's deaf. Tammy: we know we can communicate w/ our driver... but he still doesn't know where to go. being nice to their driver worked well for Jaime & Cara... they get next clue 1st. clue instructs them to go to a bridge.

drama outside the hair salon. Jen and Luke rush for the clue... Luke pushes Jen out of the way... elbows her in the face. Jen: BITCH! they're in a cab race to the bridge. Jen: game on... they're bitches. Luke: good thing I'm deaf... it would have been on. drama at the next stop. Jen and Luke again rush for the clue... Jen's there 1st... Luke pushes her into clue box.

roadblock = cormorant fishing. teams take raft to middle of river... throw fish in water... trained bird retrieves fish. once they have 10 fishes in their baskets teams can get their next clue. Jaime & Cara: amazing how they trained these birds not to eat the fish... it's like if someone threw filet mignon into my mouth I would not give it back.

back at the salon Mark & Michael have to complete their speed bump. they have to wash and dry the hair of 2 women. locals watchin' and laughin' at the Americans.

at the river Luke gets bit by a bird. Jen seen laughing. she and Kisha 1st to get next clue, which instructs them to go to the ancient south gate... a 1000 cycles old structure. Jaime & Cara right behind. they're like: our cab driver finally realized we're in a race... she seems to be driving much faster... we love her. Tammy & Victor's bird flies away. they're yelling in Mandarin... bird comes back. amazing. they get their next clue. to Margie & Luke's driver, Victor: you're driving too fast... drive slower.

detour... choreography or calligraphy. in choreography teams go to an island... learn a local dance routine... perform in front of 2 judges... get their next clue. Phil: teams w/ excellent rhythm can shuffle to their next destination. boooo! hisss! in calligraphy teams had to copy characters... once calligrapher satisfied w/ teams' calligraphy he would stamp a piece of paper... go to the next station, which was what they just wrote. 4 stations total. Phil: calligraphy intricate... if incorrect, teams will get lost in translation. boooo! hisss!

Jaime & Cara decide to do choreography. they're like: we're former NFL cheerleaders... we can pick up routines quickly. they don't. yelling at the judges, they're like: tell us what we're doin' wrong... do you speak English?... tell us what we're doin' wrong.

at the calligraphy stations Tammy & Victor get their Mandarin on. running to the 2nd station they're like: teacher, write fast... we need to beat these foreigners. at the 3rd station they're like: teacher, we're foreign born... if we don't beat these foreigners in the Race our parents will kill us. Kisha & Jen finish writing 1st. Victor: teacher, please stamp us 1st. he does. at the final station they all receive the next clue... pit stop painting of pagodas at Banyan Lake. pic from wikipedia.org.

foot race. locals at pit stop sittin' down... piggin' out on what looks like fried rice and a plate of char siu. Kisha & Jen arrive 1st. they win trip to Barbados. Tammy & Victor 2nd... Margie & Luke 3rd.

drama at pit stop. Phil asks how they're all doin' at this point in the Race. Tammy & Victor: it's all good spirited competition. hah! wait until the other teams watch this ep and see how they used their Mandarin to their advantage. Jen: Luke elbowed me getting a clue... and at another stop he pushed me into a clue box... I called him a bitch. Luke's walkin' away. Phil: come here Luke... lemme listen to your side. Luke's gettin' his sign language on. Kisha smiles. Margie: how dare you laugh at my son!... he's signing and you laugh?!... that's rude!... he's lived his whole life this way... you guys being black should understand. Kisha: I apologize if you thought I laughed... but my sister and I always smile through life.

lookin' at the replay... Luke did elbow Jen... and he also pushed her into the clue box. Kisha did smile... and depending on one's perception... could view it as a smirk. finally some drama in this Race.

Mark & Michael arrive last at pit stop. the locals finished off their fried rice and plate of char siu. either the locals = fast eaters or Mark & Michael had no chance of catching up.

Nazis planned to build 1000 bridges. steel used in preparation for war... huge stone bridges constructed, largest stone structures built since ancient Rome. during the war Autobahnen doubled up as aircraft runways.

America's Next Top Model 12 - Ciara


Allison seeks advice from Celia about how to change her facial expressions to impress the judges at panel. Celia: I gotta think of sex to get a different, good pic.

London = Bible (t)humper. she's preaches: I'm gonna approach this competition as if the Holy Spirit is in me... as if Jesus speaks through me. she looks devilish.

for the challenge contestants become creative directors. they're Mr. J... in charge of hair, makeup and dress. Natalie takes charge of Teyona. she wants her to walk... look natural. behind the scenes, Mr. J: a model can create a walk w/out walking... create motion in one spot. London wears an outfit that makes her 'feel fat as a freak'. Aminat works w/ Natalie. Aminat's not keepin' it cute n mute: I feel Natalie's stupid... I gots to put that behind... I'm gonna be a pro... get the job done. Aminat has poor time management skills. she goes on to say that 'it's not her fault' to which Jay's like: oh no you di'int. London styles Allison to look like London.

Teyona wins challenge. she and 2 other girls get to be in the June issue of Seventeen. she picks her muse Celia and roommate Aminat. jealous Fo's like: she doesn't even like Celia... I'm her BFF... what a slap in the face.

Mr. J goes to the girls' apartment at 05:30. Allison: I look like a woodland creature. more like a hot lemur. Ciara makes an appearance. contestants go cray-zay. Ciara actually came to the islands to perform at the Pro Bowl during halftime.

for the photo shoot girls = uber-obsessed Ciara fans in hot outfit wrapped in Ciara's microphone cord. Mike Ruiz photographer and this week's guest judge. London: I'm gonna pray to Jesus to give me confidence. aside, Mr. J: London, did you gain a lot of weight?... models have to treat their bodies like a temple... I noticed a huge change physically... you're way too thin to be considered plus sized. Jesus must be testing London's faith. besides... London doesn't go to temple... she goes to church. boooo! hisss!

I liked Allison's photo best. pic from cwtv.com. Mr. J gave some tips to Allison. she got pissed. she started to snarl and look like a hot lion(ess). Nigel also comments how she looks like a 'ferocious cat'.

at panel Tyra announces Brazil to be overseas destination. contestants jump and dance around. Tyra = cruel. 1 girl will be eliminated before the others travel abroad. Celia looks good. Paulina: you bring it every week. Tyra: girl... did you bring 12 outfits w/ you? Celia: yes I do have more. Teyona's pic looks ok. Nigel: in this photo it looks like your goodies are about to pop out. Tyra comments on how London 'smiles w/ her eyes naturally'. London's eliminated.

Anoop Dogg. he too chose a ballad. fast forward.

Adam Lambert covered Born To Be Wild by Steppenwolf. whew... a fast song. he sounds like Axl Rose... looks like Ashlee Simpson-Wentz. Simon: you're expressing yourself more... vocals incredible... only downer, looked like watching Rocky Horror musical... half people will like it... other half won't.

Matt Giraud. 3rd contestant out of 4 who chose a ballad. boring. fast forward.

Danny Gokey... a 2nd of my initial final 4 picks. he too chose to sing a ballad. harp on stage. definite fast forward. Simon: disappointed w/ the harp... you sang traditional version... boring.

Kris Allen... a 3rd final 4 pick. poor song choice for 2 reasons... 1) a ballad and 2) unknown (at least to me) ballad. he may not be safe tomorrow.

Lil Rounds... fast forward. the 6th ballad of the night. boring. Simon: you're not the artist I met 7 or 8 weeks ago. Lil fights back... shuts Simon up. bug eyed.

in the 6th week of competition for Simon's X Factor 5... check out You Know I'm No Good by Rachel Hylton.

Jaime & Cara get frustrated over language barrier. what do they expect? if not everyone speaks English, then perhaps they should learn Thai. in her taxi... Margie comments how it's 01:00 and that she's sweatin' like a mofo. teams all on same flight.

Margie & Luke 1st to receive next clue. roadblock instructs 1 team member to assemble a propeller on a traditional long-tail boat... receive next clue. clue instructs teams to take their boat... navigate the canals... search for the Peninsula Pier. teams left their belongings in their cabs. all teams except Kisha & Jen and Mark & Michael grabbed their stuff. costly. I don't understand how they would just leave their passports behind.

Margie & Luke still in 1st heading into detour... broken teeth or broken record. in broken teeth teams head to street of happy smiles where they had to match dentures to 5 people. locals sitting around table w/ bowls full of dentures soaked/cleaned in water. they're smilin' while Margie and Luke shove dentures into their mouths. Margie kicked ass. she completed the roadblock and the detour. Luke grossed out... not much help. they complete detour 1st... clue instructs them to go to pit stop at Phya Thai Palace. pic from wikipedia.org. they win a trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico.

in broken record... teams had to travel to the city's Chinatown via a party taxi where they had to sing karaoke w/ tranny passengers. risky detour cuz no control of Bangkok traffic. Tammy & Victor: we're Chinese... we gotta do karaoke... hey... we get to sing along w/ those Mai T(h)ai trannies. they have a good time. Mark & Michael have way too much fun. did they know the 'lovely ladies' were trannies?

Mark & Michael arrive 4th... but because they had to go back and get their bags... they spent a lot of money on cabs. I will win the Mega Millions. they had to exchange some of their personal belongings to pay for their rides, which incurred a 2 hour penalty. they did this 2x and so they have a 4 hour penalty. I assume next week they're frelled. they'll leave the pit stop later... and they have to do the speed bump.

in next week's preview Luke gets called a bitch and he gets upset. I hope they show Luke giving Kisha/Jen the middle finger.

America's Next Top Model 12 - CoverGirl Commercial

current song: Wipeout by The Fat Boys

girls actually eating a meal... looks like Thanksgiving. Natalie's stuffed... she wants to rest on the sofa and digest the 1 cranberry she ate. she thanks the other girls for cleaning up after her. Teyona: I ain't no maid. confrontation between the white Celias and black Tahlias? nah... Aminat just overheard Natalie talking about her to Fo. Natalie: I just wanted to digest my 1 cranberry... I'm not a bitch... I was just joking. Aminat's not keeping it mute n cute. to Natalie, Aminat: that's right bitch... just walk up them stairs... walk away like you always do.

contestants meet up w/ Paulina for acting lessons... and an acting battle. in pairs, girls given the same line... but each given a different emotion to portray. challenge = act out a scene w/ Clay Aiken. London: I come from a family of actors... I'm gonna kick butt. I thought Celia did best w/ her over the top performance... but Clay and Paulina selected London as the winner. she won $5000 worth of jeans. I will win the Mega Millions. apparently London's been piggin' out way to much at the apartment and has put on some weight. she should stick to the 1 cranberry a solar day model diet cuz now she's extremely overweight. because she couldn't fit into the jeans she gave most of her prize away to the girls skinnier than her obese self. pobrecita chica gordita.

CoverGirl commercial this week w/ Peter Chelkowski as director. McKey makes an appearance. she asks the girls where they're from. Natalie becomes (s)Nat(ch)alie. she's like: I'm from Califor-ni-a... all these other girls are hicks. for the commercial... girls divided into 2 groups of 4. girls shown eating food in between takes. footage of London piggin' out on 3 cranberries not aired. I thought Celia did best.

Tyra: the judges will now deliberate which one of you will not be making the final cut. boooo! hisss! Celia's called 1st... although judges felt she looked old compared to the other girls in her group. Tyra: you're like the mamma hen.

scandal at panel. Allison wore the same outfit twice. miss J pointed out Allison already wore her outfit at the 1st week of panel. damn that girl has an excellent memory. Allison's in the bottom 2 along w/ Tahlia. Tahlia's eliminated.

hottie Heather = top model in action. shout out to Heather: next time you're in Hawaii let's chillax at the beach and get our bronze on.

single released in 1999. UK #1 10 cycles ago... Flat Beat by Mr. Oizo.

highlight of tonight's ep... vixen Olivia. reporter friend... now nemesis... wanted scoops. he threatened to expose her as the cause of the President's chief of staff's resignation unless she tells him what's going on. she tells him everything... but to keep quiet he wants to recreate w/ her. Olivia brought along stud Aaron Pierce to the hotel. I assumed Olivia would enter room... run out of room... frame reporter nemesis for rape... w/ Aaron as witness. instead she records their recreation session on her mobile. nemesis planned to go public w/ story anyway. Olivia's like: don't you dare blackmail me bitch... I'll show everyone how you get your scoops... what would your wife say when she sees this?... leave me alone bitch. reporter nemesis: you're such a bitch. Olivia = uber-bitch = uber-hottie. love her.

Jon Voight's Hodges kicked ass. he meets w/ the company chairman... beats him repeatedly w/ an object while chairman cries like a lady-man... throws him over the railing. I don't think the chairman's dead cuz he landed on his glutes. anyway... Hodges got blood stains on his white shirt... he proceeds to clean it. awesome.

Jack's showing signs of reacting to the bio-weapon. doctor gives him some shots to mask the effects. she mentions stem cell research. she's like: do you have any family members? bug eyed cuz will hottie Elisha Cuthbert make an appearance? when will hottie Chloe save America?

anyway... Tony in the nest... Jack gives confirmation of bio-weapon... peacekeeper planes on way to incinerate building. Hodges calls Taylor... tells her he will launch 3 armed missiles on several east coast cities. Taylor calls off the strike. what? that'll give them more time to deploy more weapons.
