I'm just sayin'

Comin’ Down…

on May 25, 2012

… off the Idol rush. Still loving Phillip Phillips today. In the interviews I’ve seen and read in the last 24 hours Phillip has admitted that the commemorative song written for him is really not his style.  Duh!  He performed it well – but it did not scream Phil Phillips to me and I’m happy to hear him say it. Phew… That is not the Phillip I was rooting for – I want to see his quirky – Joe Cockerish type moves – that’s him. That’s part of the appeal he ‘FEELS’ the music – he is living it at the time he is singing it. Can’t wait to hear him get back to the real Phillip.  Did he sell out? Nah,  He played the game and he won.  Now I’m stoked about Duet I only got to watch part of it tonight – I’ve gotta learn the time schedule for the new shows which bring us the tired, the poor, the true artists and the weirdos. Okay, maybe not weirdos -but those just a little left of the center line. I’m just sayin’. Like the guy on America’s Got Talent. C’mon the guy who drives kabob skewers through his face dances to whole different band than say, uh, most of the world! But obviously it floats somebody’s boat. I wonder what his mom thinks. What d’ya tell people when they ask, “And how is your son Bobby? What’s he doing now that he’s all grown up?” I’m not sure if there’s a fancy schmancy name for guy who who does that, like skewerologist.  But if his mom told people that most of them would just nod their head and say, ” Oh, you must be so proud. I bet those school loans are astronomical” and then just walk away.  I’ve always wondered how one gets started doing freakish, daredevily stuff and what about the first time. Are they just sitting around in Wayne’s World one day and say, ” I think I can pierce my cheeks with a shish kabob skewer?” And so how do they go about actually doing it the first time? Besides tequila or say a case or two of beer, how does someone start poking human flesh, their own human flesh, with a not-so-sharp object? I don’t think I would want that to be my talent. Thankfully, I was blessed with other talents, not all of them discovered yet. But nevertheless, I am not going to exercise my gift if I get the urge to ram skewers through any part of my body. Really.I’m just sayin’ WTHeck is up with that?

    Phillips exit song breakdown was one of the sweetest things ever! When he handed his guitar off to get a hug from his family, that was too much…I am a fan! Just say no to human skewers!
