I'm not talking about the sad state of affairs on Congress or any of the other things that can get one so downhearted and frustrated these days. No, I am talking about something much more serious.
This year's "bad" auditions are almost over on American Idol, with just some next week, and let me just say that I am extremely disappointed with what I have been seeing. Don't get me wrong, there were some weirdos and oddballs, but they just aren't getting me excited. I don't have the same level of schadenfreude that I usually get. What I enjoy most about these first few weeks of every season is the "how do they live?" people. The ones where you wonder how they wake up in the morning and dress themselves and feed themselves and interact with other people. This season I just kind of feel bad for them because they aren't mostly just bizarro people, but people who are truly pitiful.
So with that in mind I thought I would share with you a classy YouTube, but I can't embed it so you are going to have to just have to click the link. This is actually a classy YouTube with no irony intended. Here is another one, that isn't as good a song or as good a video as the other.
Oh, and this means that American Idol blogging at The Misspent Life is officially BACK, babe.
