HA! Reading another blog made me think of it (yeah, Iâ€™m quickly becoming a blog-junkieâ€¦anywayâ€¦)
Husband forced me to watch Rock Star INXS last night. FORCED, mind you. He gave me that lost puppy look and said â€œWill you watch it with me?â€ ARGH
I didnâ€™t want to get into another reality show but I agreed.
So I laid on the couch and made fun of just about everyone there. Dave Navarroâ€¦ that guy freaks me out. He looks like the 👿 Devil in Fur. *shiver*
Anyhooâ€¦ some of the talent was pretty good. I missed the first two singers so I have nothing pithy to say about them. The dude with the studded pants who sang â€œSummer of â€˜69â€ â€“ OY! Donâ€™t give up your day job! He was awful. Made me cringe. The chick who sang the Black Sabbath song made me wish sheâ€™d just hurry up and get the hell off the stage. 😮
But JD Fortune (he stole my last name, dammit) he ROCKED. He did his own arrangement of Alanis Morrisettâ€™s â€œHand In My Pocketâ€. Wow. Rocked. Loved it. And I really liked the girl who sang â€œThe Reasonâ€. She was quite good, too. So those were my top picks of the night.
Oh and the guy who sang â€œSweet Home Alabamaâ€ (Bo Bice did it better) â€“ his shtick was to do it barefoot. Not only that but he looked like a homeless person they just picked up off the street to sing. He definitely needs a better image. Barefoot Homeless Dude ainâ€™t working.
I canâ€™t see a girl as the lead singer for INXS. It just doesnâ€™t jive with my vision of the band and what I remember back in the late 80s.
Of course you know Iâ€™m going to have to see who gets booted off tonight. CURSE Mark Burnett and his reality TV! 😆
