I’ve Got a Crush on You


Taylor Hicks, perhaps the best American Idol contestant to ever grace its cheesy stage, has captured my heart with his brilliant Ray Charles/Joe Cocker-like stylings, not to mention his glorious head of prematurely gray hair, sexy Southern drawl, and adorable tics. The man TICS, people, just gets all crazy and jerks and weaves about like Stevie Wonder on methamphetamines. ***shriek!***

I love him.

Here’s a clip of Taylor singing “Taking it to the Streets.” Not my favorite vocal performance of his, as the song doesn’t allow him to showcase his incredible voice to its GAWD-dang fullest, but it does feature him in his finest ticcing glory. ***squeal!***

Don’t hate, Robin. RESPECT the Idol!

I LOVE HIM!!! He is my favorite, favorite, favorite. I hope he wins the whole thing. I also, inexplicably, like Bucky--mostly because he don't put on no airs.

Bucky rocks! Love the bald-headed dude, too -- never can remember his name, though...He's good. But Taylor, OMG. He seriously turns me on.

LOVE the bald headed guy and love Elliot.

Taylor, though, is the man (except that I worry that he might be a bit Jesus-y and that sort of ruins it for me).

Lol. Don't love any of them - in any non-masculine way - but Chris (the bald guy) has a great rock voice, Taylor is great performer already, and Elliot (though homely) has an unbelievable voice. All that said, I'm afraid Pretty Boy Ace will hang in there until near the end...and who can NOT like Bucky? Bucky and his brother Rocky (lol) And KELLY ..."I *love* minks!" blink blink (lol) She's from the same area of NC where I currently live...

Robin told me her journal was haunted by others who respect THE IDOL...hope you don't mind my stopping by.

Myfanwy, I think he's only Jesus-y in the way many nice Southern boys are. Underneath his sweet exterior lies a sexy beast, for sure. Can I get a witness?!

Hi David! Welcome! Honored to have you here. And I'm always glad to meet another Idol fan who is unashamed to admit it. Yeah, Kelly is a doll, for sure -- I think it may end up being Kelly, Chris and Taylor in the top three. Poor homely Elliot, though. Great voice, unfortunate features. Kind of reminds me of DeNiro as Bickle in Taxi Driver, but not as good-looking.

RESPECT THE IDOL!

Damn, he's cute.

...Although, not as cute as YOU are, Mike sweetie, in case you're reading this, ha-ha *nervous chuckle* of course he's not, not nearly, ha-ha *nervous chuckle*

BTW; Your comment on One Girl & Her Cats earned you an honourable mention - Bitch ;-)

 
At 10:15 AM, Blogger Ms. Lori said...

Thanks, bitch. ;-)

Oh, David, I tried to leave a comment on your Deep Blue journal, but kept getting a "form error" message.

Too bad...Was going to bombard you with idiotic Idol commentary...You Pickler-lover, you. ;-)

 
At 10:56 AM, Blogger David Niall Wilson said...

Hmmm Not sure what the problem is with leaving comments. A lot of folks have commented that Live Journal gives them problems. I'm going to open it up today to allow anonymous posts....currently I screen any by non LJ members because I was stalked by net idiots for a while...

Yeah, Kelly is our favorite, but then, I'm a sucker for a good back story...she NEEDS a break.

As for Eliot...I posted this in my journal a while back...it's very unfortunate. If you go back a few weeks, you will ALSO see that I posted the Chicken little picture two weeks before they showed it on Idol..so OBVIOUSLY one of them reads my journal...I wonder which one? (lol)

Anyway..check this:

Ack! Ok, NOW there is a honourable mention. My server went down just as it was publishing, which for some reason made it publish twice then delete both of them.

*sigh*.

All sorted now. And only one hour and 15 minutes before hometime...

 
At 11:38 AM, Blogger Ms. Lori said...

David, you are one cruel bastid.

HAW! Love it!

BTW, I do have a Livejournal account, just so I can post on friends' journals. Hmmm. Oh, well. Guess I'll try again when I get a chance later on...

Alice, I poop on your prize -- but it's a friendly poop!

 
At 11:50 AM, Blogger Alice said...

Leave a comment saying you "poop on my prize". Oh go on! Please? That'd be so cool!

I don't know why. It just would.

Glad you realised I was joking, by the way.

- Not that I was, bitch. ;-)

 
At 12:02 PM, Blogger Ms. Lori said...

I already did, Alice. I mean, BITCH! ;-)

David, I give up -- your journal won't allow me to post, no matter how I try, anonymous, open, or user...

God! And I had such insightful, thought-provoking things to say, too.

 
At 12:20 PM, Blogger Alice said...

Pop the "insightful, thought-provoking things" on here instead, that way we'll all get to read them.

Got the comment. Thanks! Knew I could count on you.

And thus, a new post was born...

...Don't worry, I go home in 10 minutes, then I'll leave you alone.

 
At 1:15 PM, Blogger David Niall Wilson said...

I did some investigating...it seems that LJ is having this problem all over, and that they intend to fix it tonight (which means my journal will be down tonight, I suppose) -- they claim the comments will be re-enabled tomorrow...we shall see, won't we?

So far this year on idol I have predicted all but one of the people leaving exactly correctly...I didn't think Gedeon would go so quickly (maybe the weird way he spells his name irritated people? (lol). Anyway...

Sorry about the LJ kinks. I've been with them over two years, and I have a paid account there, so I don't want to move the "blog" - but when they have issues they REALLY have issues.

At 2:25 PM, Blogger Ms. Lori said...

Jesus, Alice! Go HOME, already! ;-)

David, I was angry that Gedeon was booted out in favor of Chicken Little. Wrong, wrong, wrong!

Anyway, I'll check your journal tomorrow and see what's what. Great journal, btw.

Also, I'm glad, for more reasons other than Idol chat, that you dropped by my place -- now I get the chance to thank you for the wonderful "Borderlands 5" review you wrote for Cemetery Dance. I see it's posted on Amazon as well. Too bad the mention of MY story was cut, though (I'm guessing the review was too long?). Stupid Amazon. ;-)

I've had a crush on Katharine McPhee ever since she walked on that stage and flashed those unbelievable bedroom eyes.

 
At 4:06 PM, Blogger David Niall Wilson said...

Hmmmm I have no idea why they cut you out of the review, Lori...I posted my entire review from CD into the block, but maybe it was too long....

I thought that was an AMAZING book, maybe even better than Borderlands 1 which I loved...so you're welcome.

Tell you what, I'll figure out which parts of the review got cut and post them in my journal sometime soon.

At 4:46 PM, Blogger Ms. Lori said...

Jas, she is gorgeous with a capital G. Love her.

David, you're very kind, but please don't go through the trouble...I think Amazon allows only a certain length for reviews, so the second half got cut out. Not your fault! Besides, I have the Cemetery Dance review, and I'm thrilled with that. Plus, I'm used to being cut off regarding B5 -- Annabell is missing its ending lines in both B5 and From the Borderlands. ***blush*** But they are there in Best of Borderlands, thank goodness.

 
At 9:46 PM, Blogger G-Man said...

OK, gotta tell you people that it was all crap, especially Baby-Joe Cocker. Lori, I am soooooo disappointed in you. My daughter forced me to watch it the night he was on and I wanted to strangle the twitchy little bastard almost as much as I wanted to deball that Simon asshole.
Let's all get back to basics here folks and start watching something of value like maybe Lou Dobbs or Charlie Rose.

 
At 8:04 AM, Blogger Ms. Lori said...

Sigh. G-Man, darling, babydoll, poochie pie...You might not get this, being a Canuck and all, but we Americans sometimes need a bit of diversion via fluffy, feel-good programs to deliver us from the very sad current state of our union. So there! ;-)

RESPECT THE IDOL!

 
At 10:28 AM, Blogger David Niall Wilson said...

Too late Lori...it's already posted in my live journal...the entire Borderlands V review, all 3800 words (grin). No cutting.

 
At 10:47 AM, Blogger Ms. Lori said...

Aw...You're a good man. Thanks so much.

 
At 3:20 PM, Blogger Jordan E. Rosenfeld said...

I feel the same way about Taylor! But i also have a sort of crush on Katherine McPhee, and wouldn't mind if she got right up there to the final three.

Have you read my American Idol essay Ms. Lori? http://jordansmuse.blogspot.com/2006/02/its-idol-time-again-so-today-i-give.html

Oh god, why did I have to come here right now.

Must.Make.Things.Better.

Okay, currently blasting Hendrix.

Great essay, Jordan!
I like this:
“You know those adorable clips of famous people they show where the now stylish, hip person was once a little bit awkward, with too-thick eyebrows and uneven lips, zaftig and sexy before the plastic surgery…in a word…normal? These are the majority of American Idol contestants. They haven't been through the Hollywood glamour machine yet. Some of them have literally just faced puberty. There's sweet baby fat on some young faces, the mortal coil is in evidence left and right, egos popping up like pimples, and yet, strangely, it's endearing. These people are real, which means—hey they could be like me, and you.”

Right on. Idol IS hip!

And yes, that girl is crush-worthy, to be sure. Kind of reminds me of a young Linda Ronstadt…

BWAaaaa-HAhahahahaHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA, Robin!

But seriously, Jimi is god. All bow.

Thanks, Lori! I feel famous being quoted by you.
