Rock Star - July 25

Now I remember why I've never watched a "reality" show until now. It's not reality, it's all about putting people in unrealistic situations and then piecing together their behavior (oft times ridiculous) into some contrived drama the general public mistakes for reality so they don't have to pay attention to their own mundane reality. However, this show has a few other elements that are keeping my interest:

1. Personal relationship with one of the contestants (that's right, me and Ty are ex-lovers)
2. INXS - I've always been a fan
3. Rock 'n Roll (for the most part) Performances.

And of course,

4. Dave Navarro

It's not so bad, and I'm enjoying it, but I'm not buying the "reality" portion of the show, unless they start having orgies. If that happens, I don't care if it's real or not.

I was not able to give full attention to this week's mansion show, so I won't go into detail. But, I have realized that JD is not merely a pud. He is insecure, and immature and desperately needs someone to notice him. His behavior is on the level of an 8 year old boy. I take pity on him. But, I still don't like his voice. That aside, I don't think he'd be a good fit for INXS - they're not looking to babysit their lead singer, I presume.

MiG seems to be coming into his zone. I excpect him to gain favor of the band. If anybody is familiar with the recent Milwaukee's Best commercials, where the giant beer can drops on a guy who is acting less-than-manly, I was expecting that to happen to MiG when he was on the phone with his wife. I felt sorry for the dude. So, I yelled at his wife through the tv screen in his place, "What do you want me to do, quit the show and give up my dreams because my wife is afraid of a few psychotic, bomb-flinging Muslims! It always has to be about you, doesn't it, BITCH! Fine, I'll go wake Dave Navarro right now and tell him I can't play Rock and Roll anymore because my wife says I have to come home because she's a whiney-ass, crybaby, little chicken shit. Is that what you want!?"

Predictions:
Jessica may do well (relatively) with her song this week. Just a hunch. Brandon doesn't seem to bother me as much as he used to. I'm sure it's only a phase. Marty will rock out, as usual. No, he'll rock out rock out. Know what I mean? I mean it. R-O-C-K space O-U-T! Brooke will wave at me, again (she sent me a love note disguised as an overdue credit card bill, that rascal). JD will have some humility thrust upon him, but he won't know how to use it. I expect strong efforts from Suzie, Jordis, Heather and Garry Beers. I don't know about Daphna or Ty, Tara, Deanna or Brandon. I just don't know. I'm guessing Neal will be drunk somewhere, Will will be smirking in the mirror at himself, and Dana won't know where she is at.

My interest in the mansion show is gone as well. In fact, I skippped it entirely. They should make it haunted to spice it up.

I'm not sure if this is after they moved the mansion show to VH1, but I, as well, had decided to skip that part anyway.

The "reality" clips on the performance shows were more than enough to have to tolerate.
