Music Snob

Today is a great day in America, as Craig Ferguson says at the top of his show every night. It's a great day because we no longer have to deal with the threat of Sanjaya Malakar. It's over. Children no longer have to hide in fear. Grown men and women can now stand in the light. Ladies and gentlemen, our long national nightmare is over.

Here's the thing: The guy had no talent. But somehow, he's been featured for weeks on Idol doing what he does best, which is absolutly nothing. He was perfect for the show, as it proves that pop music doesn't care these days about the artists. As long as they look cute and move funny, then it sells. With Sanjaya, it went a step further for if he'd have actually won the competition, producers would have no choice but make this guy a star. Of course, they would have had to use a lot of processing on his voice to the point that the music would have to drown out the boy's voice. Fortunatly, it won't come down to that now since he's no longer in favor of America.

I want to thank Howard Stern, Vote For the Worst, Zack Braff and all the others out there who helped me to remember that there's much better msuic out there and how much American Idol had not become a nationwide joke. I want to thank Idol for every week they've tortured us with overwraught vocals while trying to make a buck. Most of all, I'd like to thank Sanjaya for bringing us the ponyhawk and his hot sister.

I'm gonna listen to some Spike Jones and his City Slickers now.
