My mind hurts

No full Idol recap today, though I watched all two hours of the end of Hollywood week with great enthusiasm, including where Tatiana Del Toro, the craziest Boricua in captivity, nearly shook herself to pieces out of sheer neurotic enthusiasm. Instead of a full rundown, I'll just give you this:

1. Jamar got totally rooked.

2. I had Frankie Jordan all picked out as my idle Idol crush for the season. Since this year lacks an obvious golden-throated, meaty Irish dame for me to obsess over a la Carly Smithson or Kat McPhee, I decided to focus on the shambolic, disheveled MILFitude of Frankie, but now that she's been cut, I don't know what direction to go in.

3. Here is a sad example of how my brain works and prevents me from ever making anything out of my life: since I have past been employed to do paid recaps of Idol, I've developed, as do many show bloggers, a sort of shorthand to take notes as I go along, which I then expand on during the actual writing. Early on, for understandable yet unforgivable reasons, my shorthand for Danny Gokey was "Dead Wife" (yes, I utilize and endorse the Michael Scott Mnemonic System). So now, every time I see him, I expect him to sing "My Wife and My Dead Wife" by Robyn Hitchcock. Marry me!

I think at least part of the reason Frankie got booted is because she had a prior recording contract.

If that was the case then they should have really booted Joanna Pacitti.

I have literally never watched any part of any episode of American Idol in any season ever, and can only even visualize the two judges I can visualize when you refer to them are because I usually watch The Soup.

And yet, I read your recaps with amusement and interest, which is a testament to some damn thing.

Go read the pre-season ranking I just posted and think of something to say about each contestant. That is your assignment for today.

Based purely on what you say about them? Because I would honestly have nothing else to go on.

YOu want me to re-interpret what you've already said, or just make stuff up?

You AI crush for this year...
May I nominate Jackie Tohn? She's the lady with a voice smokier than a slab of brisket on a Texas 'Q, and is memorable for actually having a reasonable sense of humor about herself, the competition, and life in general.
