I've been American Idolized

I got the chance Tuesday night to go and see American Idols Live. I had a great time, and I thought the show was awesome, and well worth the 4 hour drive.

I don't watch all the much TV, but I only missed one episode of American Idol this year, so I felt more "involved" with the show than I ever have before. I was pretty much pulling for Carrie Underwood all the way, but really liked most of the final 12.

So this post is more for all of you that enjoyed American Idol 2005. I'm here to give you my review of the show.

The show opened to a packed house, with Jessica Sierra firing up the crowd. Her raspy, yet solid vocals got everyone fired up, and her feeding off the audience was cool to see. I can picture her doing this for a living. She's a great vocalist, just needs to work more on her own style. (I ran to get the camera after her performance, and missed Anwar Robinson's first 2 songs)

Constantine, the charmer, was next on. He is just something else. He opened with "Hard to Handle" and the crowd went nuts!

He then sang "My Funny Valentine" and then closed with a Rocking version of "Bohemian Rhapsody"

Following Constantine up was Nikko Smith. Unfortunately none of the pictures of Nikko turned out that well at all (if any are really that great).

Nikko really was awesome. I especially like "Part Time Lover" and his dancing on all of the songs was the best of the night by far. He even whipped his hat into the audience for a lucky fan.

Nikko introduced Scotty "The Body" Savol. Scott had a very strong vocal in his first song "Against All Odds". He then shared the stage with Jessica Sierra again for a GREAT version of "Total Eclipse of the Heart"

Scott was one of the Idols that talked to the audience more than I thought he would, and it was pretty cool. He even joked about being overweight. Scott the introduce the hot and rocking Nadia Turner.

Nadia came on with an electric guitar and her hair was wild and crazy. Understandably the Idols have been doing the tour for a month or more, and they've done the show quite a few times. My thoughts are that I got to see it when they are really starting to really hit everything right.

Nadia was better than she was on the show, as all were. The thing I liked about the show was that even though they may still be doing the same old thing night after night, it still seemed fresh, and original. And I'm sure a lot of it was, when fans were screaming "I love you!" and flashes were going off like crazy!

After Nadia there was about a 20 minute intermission, before the show heated up even more.

After the intermission Anwar came back on the stage and sat down at a keyboard. He then began playing a very hot version of "Superstitious" Little did we all know that behind him on the stairs was the fantastic Vonzell, is a bright yellow silky gown.

Vonzie then lit up the whole place with her bubly and upbeat versions.

She looked very good, and sounded solid for the most part

Vonzell then introduced Anthony Federov, who I think has improved the most since the show left the air this spring. Federov seemed the most appreciative of the crowd, and said "Wow. This is crazy!" His vocals were solid and he worked the crowd well. At one point during his performance I thought, "That would be a lot of fun to be him right now... he sure looks to be enjoying it.

At one point during Federov's performance a fan threw a hat onto the stage... he grabbed the hat and put it on his head, and the wore it the rest of the night. I thought that was pretty cool, especially since it was a Cheesehead hat.

He even showed his range by doing a Latin version of what I think was a Marc Anthony song, but I'm not to into that style.

And here's Mr. Federov with the Cheesehead hat that was thrown onstage.

After that he announced what we all knew. That the marvelous Bo Bice wasn't able to make it, but was doing well recuperating from surgery. So we were shown a clip of him singing "Vehicle" which was fine for me. It would've been so awesome if he had been able to be there though.

After that, the lead guitarist began a tribute song for Bo, starting "Sweet Home Alabama" in which the rest of the guys came onstage and rocked the house in their own way. It was pretty good, not quite the caliber of Bo Bice, but he's old school.

After that finished to roars galore, Scott Savol noted that this is the time when Bo Bice usually gets to say this...

It is my extreme pleasure to introduce YOUR AMERICAN IDOL, CARRIE UNDERWOOD!!
(Insert pandemonium) Obviously the crowd favorite in Green Bay, Carrie opened with Sin Boots. I would be lying if I said I wasn't waiting for her to get onstage all night.

After Sin Boots, she did her cover of "Independence Day" and sounded fantastic. Then followed that by "Alone"

She sure has a great voice, and I thought she did a fantastic job in all areas of the performance too. And she looked phenomenal.

To close she sang her hit "Inside Your Heaven", which was greeted by deafening roars and cheers. At the end of the song she was joined by the rest of the Idols in casual attire as well, to finish the fantastic night. I really enjoyed it a lot.

I especially liked the added touch of Jessica Sierra wearing a Brett Favre jersey to close out the show, which I know the rest of the crowd loved too... Great show by all... Anyone who didn't enjoy it went there with a different purpose in mind.

One last pic... Sierra donning the Favre jersey


When the Cat is Away, the Mice Will Play!

I got these photos courtesy of a friend of mine. What some office people do when their "friends" are on vacation.

Wrap everything in newspaper

Put the keyboard into the desk (a little harsh, hahaha)

Fill their cubicle with packing peanuts (very creative!)

Wrap everything in aluminum foil (so shiny!)

Do you have any sticky notes?


Dog Ran out of Gas

One day a little girl asked her Mom, "Mom, may I take Lucy for a walk around the block?"

The Mom said, "No, because she's in heat."

"What's that mean?" asked the child.

"Go ask your Father. I think he's in the garage."

The little girl went to the garage and said "Dad, can I take Lucy for a walk around the block? I asked Mom, but she said the dog was in heat, and that I should ask you."

Dad said, "Bring Lucy over here." He took a rag, soaked it with gasoline, and scrubbed the dog's butt with it.

"OK, you can go now, but keep Lucy on the leash. And only go one time around the block."

The little girl left and returned a few minutes later with no dog on the leash.

Dad said, "Where's Lucy?"

The little girl said, "Lucy ran out of gas about halfway down the block. There's another dog pushing her home."


Breaking Wind

There was once this happily married couple, well, they were happy apart from one thing, the husband's bad habit of breaking wind every morning.

On their 30th wedding anniversary, the wife woke up, as usual, coughing and and gasping for breath. She then decided that she was so fed up with this that she would get her revenge. So she went downstairs, into the kitchen, picked up a big bowl, and filled it with raw liver,mashed potato, gravy, red wine and minced beef, shemixed it all up, went upstairs and dumped the contents of the bowl into the bed next to her husband. She went downstairs and waited.

About an hour later, the wife heard a couple of huge farts reverberate off the floorboards and then she heard a blood curdling scream.

About an hour later the husband came down the stairs holding the "bloodstained" sheets and pyjamas. He then said
"Wife, all these years you've been telling me, but i never did, but now i knew i should have listened."

'What do you mean?' asked the wife tying not laugh.

'All these years you've been telling me that one day I'd fart my guts out, and today it finally happened. But by the grace of god, and these two fingers, I got them all back in again!'


Odd thoughts and ideas

Old telephone books make ideal personal address books. Simply cross out the names and addresses of people you don't know.

Fool other drivers into thinking you have an expensive car phone by holding an old TV or video remote control up to your ear and occasionally swerving across the road and mounting the curb.

Lose weight quickly by eating raw pork and rancid tuna. I found that the subsequent food poisoning/diarrhea enabled me to lose 12 pounds in only 2 days.

Avoid parking tickets by leaving your windshield wipers turned to fast wipe whenever you leave your car parked illegally.

No time for a bath? Wrap yourself in masking tape and remove the dirt by simply peeling it off.

Apply red nail polish to your nails before clipping them. The red nails will be much easier to spot on your bathroom carpet. (Unless you have a red carpet, in which case a contrasting polish should be selected).

If a person is choking on an ice cube, don't panic. Simply pour a jug of boiling water down their throat and presto! The blockage is almost instantly removed.

Save on booze by drinking cold tea instead of whiskey. The following morning you can create the effects of hangover by drinking a thimble full of dish washing liquid and banging your head repeatedly on the wall.


Payback Technique

Need to get someone back for a joke they played on you? Or do you want to get them first.

Here's a simple one that is easy to do, just don't tell where you heard about it...

First of all you need a kitchen sink with a sprayer. Take the sprayer and either tape it (harder to notice) or use a rubber band, so that it's on... aka, it'll spray when the faucet is turned on. Like so:

Then turn the nozzle so that it's facing the target area, like so:

Then WAIT for them to use the sink!!

After that, just be ready to run, or play dumb, "What are you all wet for? Did you pee your pants? HAHAHA!

They may not take it that well. Just make sure that you don't do it when they're all dressed up to go out to eat or something like that.

Have fun!

Signs Point to "HUH?"

I found these hilarious sign pictures from other websites. I thought they were pretty funny and wanted to share them with you.


The fine art of TP-ing

Through the years I've had a lot of fun doing this. What am I even talking about? Well I'm talking about toilet-papering someone's house and yard!

Of course this should always involve someone you know.

I would never toilet-paper someone's house that I didn't know.

That'd be more like littering, but when you know them, then it's more like a prank.

This can be a very humorous, and exciting activity, especially if the people you're doing it to are good sports, but even when they're not.

First of all what you need to start off with is an accomplice. Someone that'll share in the fun, and somone that you can talk about it with afterwards, and laugh. It's a lot more fun when you're out there giggling with someone instead of doing it alone.

Second, you need a vehicle, unless the house/yard you're going to TP is nearby. When you get to the scene, make sure that the car is parked in a place where you can drive away, because I've had to run for it, and take off before I was caught. If you have to backup, that's going to slow you down.

The next thing you're going to need is rolls of toilet paper. And NO, they shouldn't be used. These are unused rolls of toilet paper, silly. Depending on the yard, and how many trees, and things to wrap it around, you'll have to decide how many rolls to bring. I like using around 10 rolls for a house/yard.

The last thing you'll need before you start is to get into Super-sneaky-ninja-invisible-stealth-MODE.

Once you have all those things taken care of, and of course you've selected the place, you begin.

My favorite part about TP'ing is that you can show your artistic flair. I like to partner up with someone and throw it high into the trees, or over the house. Weave it inside of railings on decks, or clothesline poles.

Know the people you're doing this to also because they may have:
1) A dog, that BARKS
2) A motion-detecting yard light. You're not going there to steal, you're going there to prank them.
3) You know how they'll react if they hear you... so be sneaky.

You can even spell out things for them. I usually try to never leave any clues, because you know how paybacks are.

Finally, and only sometimes, when I'm leaving I like to honk the horn, or make some noise, so they know that they've had uninvited company.

One other thing that is kind of fun is creatively wrapping their car in Seran Wrap. Much nicer than putting Seran wrap over a toilet, but still a good prank.


After the Honeymoon

A young couple got married and left on their honeymoon. When they got back, the bride immediately called her mother.

Her mother asked, "How was the honeymoon?"

"Oh, mama," she replied, "the honeymoon was wonderful! So romantic..." Suddenly, she burst out crying. "But mama, as soon as we returned, Sam started using the most horrible language... things I had never heard before! I mean, all these awful 4-letter words! You've got to come get me and take me home... Please, mama!"

"Sarah, Sarah," her mother said, "calm down! Tell me,
what could be so awful? What 4-letter words?"

"Please don't make me tell you, mama," wept the daughter. "I'm so embarrassed. They're just too awful! Come get me, please!"

"Darling, baby, you must tell me what has you so upset... Tell your mother these horrible 4-letter words!"

Still sobbing, the bride said, "Oh, mama...words like DUST, WASH, IRON, COOK...!"


Can't Get You Out of my Mind!

I have a silly little thing to do when I'm around certain people... get a tune stuck in their head.

Now that may sound pretty tame, but I get quite a kick out of it. One of the people that I like doing this with is my brother-in-law. Pretty much all I have to do is whistle, or sing, a little bit of a tune, and he'll continue doing it for a long time. It could be the middle of July, and if I sing or whistle a few chosen Christmas carols, he'll eventually be doing the same thing. There are other people that I know that this works with too. I usually whistle quite a bit, compared to the average person.

The same thing goes for me though. I seem to get them stuck in my head all day too.

Usually when I wake up in the morning it's to the radio on the alarm. IF there's a song playing on the radio, that song is usually stuck in my head all morning. Does this happen to any of you?

Another thing about music, at least for me, is that I can remember, a lot of the time, where I was or what I was doing when I heard a song before, especially certain 80's songs. They have a certain memory attached to them. Like "Glory Days" by Bruce Springsteen, it always makes me think back to my Freshman year of high school, and going to football practice. They used to have a radio playing in the locker room when we got there, and that song was popular then.

Pretty weird stuff... similar to certain smells having memories attached to them. I have a bunch of scented markers in my drawer at work. They're the same exact markers that we had in school when I was in first grade. They smell like blueberry, cherry, cinnamon, etc... When I smell those markers, I think of way back to my youth, smelling those same smells. It's really weird!

That may be why I like certain holidays so much. Christmas has all those wonderful smells that just stick in my mind. All the great foods that are cooked, the tree itself, and candles. I smell those and it brings back certain images from the past.


Hooked on It

My friend Pete, aka Retep, and I have had a lot of fun fishing together over the years. We both can make each other laugh pretty easily, and are usually pretty witty, at least with each other.

One particular time we went fishing at my cousin's camp, which has a small lake. We went fishing for Walleye. It was a perfect evening for it. We settled on a spot and got our lines into the water. We tried to keep things quiet and not spook all the fish, but we both were joking around. Finally, after about twenty minutes I got a fish on. It was already pretty dark, and it was hard to see. It was a decent size, and would be good to eat, but we didn't have a stringer to put it on.

This fish was probably the most rowdy Walleye I've ever seen. Usually trout are the type to jump around and make noise, but this guy was lying in the bottom of the boat doing his own gymnastics routine. With the aluminum bottom, he sounded kind of like a Jamaican steel-drummer. We needed to quiet him down.

Since we didn't have a stringer, we decided we should probably kill it. Now what Pete did would probably be funnier if you saw it with your own eyes, but still, I think it's hilarious. He grabbed the fish in one hand and started punching it in the head with the other hand. He was going for the knockout punch! I think you had to be there, but if you can picture it.

Another time, Pete and I were fishing at night, and we had a lantern draped over one side of a canoe. We had found a ridge, and we caught something every time we dropped our line down. We had the perfect depth. We were both limited out very quickly, and now we were just fishing for bigger ones.

I told Pete, "I bet these fish are so hungry right now, we could almost catch them with a bare hook."

I was eating a Kit-Kat bar at the time, and decided to see just how hungry they were. I put a small chunk of the bar on the line and dropped it down to the depth that was working. WHAM! I had a fish on. Unbelievable! I haven't tried that trick since, but it sure was funny when I set the hook on a fish that went after my Kit-Kat.


A picture's worth a thousand words

I found these hilarious pictures surfing the net, at Jokefrog.

If you go there, be aware that you'll get tons of pop-ups...

Here's two funny pics I found, haha.

And this one... must be an intense ride!!

That's the Fact, Jack!

Here are some fun and interesting facts I found that I wanted to share with you all:

Men talk on Cell phones 10% more than Women.

Time magazine reported that in Russia, buying carnations or roses is a prerequisite for a first date. They must be given in odd numbers, because flowers given in even numbers are reserved for funerals.

The average American uses 12.4 gallons of water to take a shower which lasts, on the average, 10.4 minutes at an average temperature of 105 degrees.

On average, an American makes three pounds of garbage in a day.

Every pound of stored body fat represents about 3500 calories. If everyday for a week you use 500 calories more than you take in, you'll use up one pound of fat (500 calories x 7 days = 3500 calories =1 pound body fat).

On average, an American family sends and receives 28 Christmas cards each year.

The average four year-old child asks over four hundred questions a day.
