The Voice – My Two Year Long Obsession

In Uncategorized on March 11, 2012 at 11:10 pm

It’s kind of funny…. living alone (again) has turned me into a TV watcher, much more so than when I had a roommate. I watch Morning Joe while getting ready for work every morning, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives between work and dinner time and  either The Voice or American Idol from dinner to bedtime. I’m really cool, no need to say it.

I loved The Voice season one and was apprehensive to see if the second season could keep up and it most definitely has. Instead of analyzing all of the various contestants and judges (no one cares about Carson so he’s not included regardless), I thought it would be funny to just list off my running thoughts about this season:

1) I predict Adam and Christina’s team will be the Final Two left in the competition

2) In the end, however, I think Christina’s team (gag me now) will reign supreme this year

3) Blake is adorable and a very successful country music singer, but I have to confess, his pick of musicians just sucks in general – the latest “duel match” of singers who sang “Ironic” was pretty much a sing-off comparable to one you’d stumble upon in a dive bar anywhere in the USA

4) I  wonder every episode if Christina has a) a stylist b) a mirror c) any ability to withstand eating food at this point d) what she’s thinking when it comes to her “fashion accessories” and wardrobe choices 
5)  I want to do inappropriate things to Adam Levine pretty much every time the camera pans on him
6) Some of the top contenders in my opinion include: Tony Lucca, Sera Hill, Jesse Campbell, Tony Vincent and RaeLynn
7) The duel between Anthony and Jesse was epic – I wanted to take both home with me to wait until I find a husband just so that I know I’d have two confirmed amazing performers for my future wedding
8) Christina, while you have a great voice – everyone doesn’t want to hear you since every single song the contestants – this isn’t your competition, it’s theirs – just saying

Top 5 Reasons I’m Still Hooked On Glee

In Uncategorized on May 12, 2010 at 9:23 pm

Is it me or is this season even better than the last? The musical numbers and song choices are incredible, I am honestly in love with mostly every song featured on the show. Here are the reasons this season is awesome:

1. Jesse — HELLO Jesse is so attractive, a bit shady and has wonderful hair. I would like to be swept off my feet and be twirled in the air by Jesse any day. I don’t think Rachel really likes him but is too afraid Finn will screw her over again so she’s playing the game. I don’t know if I believe Jesse has good intentions but we will see.


2) Mr. Scheuster and Miss. Pillsbury’s Messed Up Dysfunctional Relationship — She’s a prude with OCD, he’s a “slut” recovering from a harsh marital fall- out. I dig it, big time. I think she will eventually fall back in love with him — and why shouldn’t she? All men like a little action every now and then.

3) Kurt coming into his own — I truthfully think Kurt’s character is on its way of becoming one of the most emotionally complex and interesting on the show. Not only is he gay and dealing with the difficulties of his father’s disappointment, but in addition a more “athletic” son in law to be (Fin) adds only more frustration into Kurt’s life.

4) Finn– Need I say more? He is still trying to figure what he wants from Rachel which makes him a compelling (somewhat ditzy) character within the bunch. He wants to be with Rachel at times for she sees the real Finn but at the same time he’s afraid he will get hurt again like he did with Quinn when she was impregnated by Puck.


5) Rachel being the center of male attention and less the center of the vocal — Rachel most definitely is the strongest character on the show — she annoys me in many regards but her singing and acting are incomparable with any of the other characters on the show. I truthfully feel like if Lea Michele were not cast for the role on the show it would have flopped within one season. I love the love triangle forming/ continuing to fester between her, Jesse, and Finn. I wonder who she will decide in the end to be with.


Glee, Oh How I Love Thee

In Uncategorized on November 30, 2009 at 9:18 pm

In my Communication Theory class a few weeks ago, my professor asked us to watch a few clips of the new hit show, Glee, and define the various high school stereotypes that were presented… Of course you have:

The dumb, somewhat attractive, somewhat not Jock….

The hot, knocked up cheerleader who can’t hold a tune or making one convincing line within the show…

The large and extremely talented black girl who can go head to head against Jennifer Hudson no doubt…

The troubled wheelchair boy that has such a great, raspy, dark singing voice….

The geek girl who is in reality extremely hot under her “nerd facade”….

The “bad boy” whom actually knocked up the cheerleader, as opposed to the jock (sporting a mohawk mind you) …

The gay guy with the diva attitude and the unaccepting father…

What I love most about the show is its ability to turn all of the typical stereotypes on its head. While they do have concrete roles they play within the typical high school setting, their actions and behaviors veer very far from what you’d expect. In addition, the musical aspect of the show is unbelievable… From Kanye’s Gold Digger to Sisqo’s The Thong Song, they incorporate a musical- like quality with new age/ old school music into the sitcom. I’m not used to watching a TV show then hearing the characters begin belting out Cher. I LOVE every minute of it.

My favorite character is Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry, the talented yet very geeky girl in the Glee Club. There’s something about her character that’s so genuine it’s almost alarming. She has the best set of vocals in the bunch, and in my mind is the most attractive. She shows her insecurities throughout the show as well as her confidence in her singing abilities. I hope she wins an Emmy for her role.

I also love Matthew Morrison, who plays Mr. Schuster on the show. He’s sexy in a geeky, teacher-like way and can’t belt out a tune like the rest of them. While I think his temptations veer him off course at times, he loves his wife and his Glee Club more than anything else.
