a McSong choice?
The word in the grapevine is that our singing starlet Katharine McPhee (seen here with The OC's Rachel Bilson) is singing KT Tunstall's Black Horse and the Cherry Tree as one of her song choices Tuesday.
Let's just see how accurate the internets and the McPheever are at reading the McPhev's mind.
In the meantime, here's the song by the orginal artist. Black Horse & the Cherry Tree.
I hope she does sing this song. I can see Katharine working it.

Reality TV Overload.Reality TV is draining all humanity and culture...
but it's sooo good!
It's been a very exciting week for Reality TV. All my favorites are getting very good. And by very good, I mean totally and completely insane! Real Reality television is all about unlikely situations with alot of odd people all put together in an intricate tapistry of awkwardness that would make a normal person cringe and presume the fetal position.
Oh yea. goodtimes.
Anyways, now is the time to cue the So You've Had a Bad Day anthem to talk trash about the losers of Reality TV this week. [hehe, as if there's winners. REALLY GOOD reality TV has NO winners. Only the delusional ones.]
Not only did the McPheever live to see another week, Katharine McPhee was announced as one of the Top 2 according to votes Tuesday night! Isn't that exciting?! All my power dialing helped! woot.
But there has to be a loser, and it wasn't Paris like I [and dialIdol] predicted. It was Kellie Pickler, the country-singing calamari-virgin that was a frontrunner when the show started. At first I was shocked that my prediction was wrong, but good riddence to the Pick. I guess I thought she would always be around cause I hated her so much. You know when you lose your nemesis... you have no purpose in life. Who am I going to hate now?! I guess I can hate Taylor Hicks, but that's like hating someone with a mental disability, right?! He's like old and spastic. That's has to be terminal. Some people call it 'soul', I call it epileptic seisures. Everytime he sings I want to yell "Give him his pills!! Dear God who has this man's pills?! Can't you see that he needs his pills?!!!"
Oh man, American Idol is so great this season.
America's Next Top Model
ANTM doesn't have seasons, they have cycles. How appropriate. Referring to a show's seasons that include an all woman cast [and gay men, but same thing] as cycles. That is sooo fitting. [And just in case you are insanely socially awkward or JASON, I'm refering to menstral cycles.] Why don't they just call it 'seasons' seriously. It just gives men chance to theorize about the double entendre.
So Nnenna gets the boot, and for good reasons!
Oh my! Nnenna looks like a clown in every one of her modeling shots. So the princess-snob may have perfect linguistical skills, an actual African lineage, is a chemist and wants to spread peace, love and moodrings to all the little children of the world...
but she's a huge bitch! and since you forgot, this is America's Next Top Model! Not America's Next Top Girl with great resume creditials!!
Nnenna the clown is dead to me.
[The roommate cried in his room for the whole day cause his favorite girl got the boot. "Oh My! She had 4 Ns in her name!! That's awesome" as he would say... and I'm paraphasing cause I can't fake the level of nerdiness that is Jason.]
I remember hearing about this show the first couple of seasons it aired and I was like "It's so lame... 'Hi, I'm Donald Trump.. hehe... You're Fired!"
But it is actually an entertaining show. At least this season is. But I'm sad to say that my favored contestant Andrea got fired this week!
This show is about buisness [I suppose] so naturally I rooted for the evilest one.
She was right all the time, and everyone else was wrong. It was so true. They all hated her awesome skills!! Damn them! Sure she's already successful in her own rite and therefore doesn't need it as much as the other [re: losers], but she is totally the best devil, I mean woman for the job!
She won when she was project manager and she won good! Those other biatches are just jealous!
Now I'm going to have that Daniel Powter song in my head forever. thanks.

Okay so since I recieved like a bijillion hits today and yesterday since I posted about Katharine McPhee, I feel like I should make it a habit. hehe.
Let's break it down into catagorizable sections.
Catholic School StoriesWhy is it that people who make fun of weaker people always go after their own insecurities?
Anyways I'm starting to think that one of my coworkers is scared of his feminine side. Seriously, what's the only reason a bully makes fun of kids with [i]faerie[/i] tendencies? I never thought of him that way. He does have the hair of a nancy boy. It's naturally curly, so he decided to grow it out to release the inner-curl. How gay it that?!
Like I care either way. I just can't stand a practically grown man making fun of an obviously princess in training pre-K kid. [And before we have the "OMG, he's too young. How do you know? Whateva!" debate, I just wanna point out something. He enjoys playing with CareBear plush toys.. AND he knows the theme song to the 20 year old CareBear series... Now... you know that one point he had to go to his parents and say "I want you to buy me the CareBears Dvd-boxed set!" Now that's gayer than Barbie.]
Yeah, so I have issues with it all.
He also picked on a 1st grader. Ugh.
So the kid wanted him to make a paper airplane. The coworker [Let's just call him Homer] decided to make a deal with the youngster. He says, "I'll make you an airplane if you do this.." So the next thing I know the kid is in front of us saying "I like to go to the Lizzie Maguire website and play the Lizzie Maguire manicure game."
Now... I am in charge of getting these kids on their website of choice. So I know this website... so why don't you people be the judge...
behold, the web game he plays.
This is seriously messed up.
Anyways, I think I'm going to retaliate somehow. I'm sort of smart, right? I hate to see the little future queerlings get hate crime'D so early in life.

McPheever!In light on Jason's post, I just thought I would shed a little light on the phenomenon that is the McPheever!
What's to explain?! Listen to these!

Catholic School StoriesCatholic School Stories are stories about my wacky adventures working in a Catholic school... imagine that.
Imagine the sweetest little 3 year old blonde girl. And she has just entered the cafeteria and put her seventy pound pink Dora the Explorer backpack (which she pronounces as "pack-pack") on her chair. She sits and looks around. She spots me.
"Hey Mister Medrano!"
[On a side note: Why is it that every one of my teachers throughout my life have never pronounced my last name correctly no matter how many times I try, and an infant that cannot say "spagetti" says it right the first time?]
Anyways, I look up. Did someone address me? It sounded like a small child.
"Mister Medrano, come here please," waving her little hand.
Awww. Isn't that the cutest thing ever? So I go over there. "What's going on, Hailey?" [No, that's totally her real name. I can't make up this shit!]
And she smiles and says look.
Then flips me the middle finger.
And before I have the time to properly freak out on this little toddler, she says "I cut my finger."
Noticing the little scrape on her little finger I say, "Oh... yeah... that sucks."

Media TuesdayIt's Tuesday already?! Wow. At least these days keep me on my toes about blogging. heh. Anyways, here's a cool episode of SouthPark.
There's alot of people that hate SouthPark. I guess it's the vularity of it all. But I think it teaches alot too. They say that you can find any Psychological theory in at least one episode of The Simpsons, and SouthPark has alot of social issues too!!
Here's an awesome one about how the kids deal with action and violence in cartoons and how they apply and interpret them in their own lives. SouthPark
On a side note, being that it is Media Tuesday... ugh! Platonic Roommate Jason made me watch Twist, a movie based off some Oliver Twist book. Oh geez, Jason! You are a sick, sick man! Imagine instead of the characters being pick-pockets, they were male hustlers. And the one character, I liked dies. ugh. Poor, poor Nancy! Anyways, I did have that Nick Stahl in it... ugh.

It's a Girl's WorldDid you guys ever notice that girls get whatever they want? Like, for reals. (I never say "Like, for reals" but I just thought since this is a serious situation, I would use it to engage you people more... it is working?)
I guess I never really paid attention to that concept. I mean, you hear it on Jerry Springer 24/7. A girl comes on the show with her mom to talk about all these gifts she's getting from these strange men and how she says she doesn't DO anything to get them.
And we all think, "whateva!... that girl's a slut!"
poor, poor little slut girl. We didn't listen to you. But yeah, maybe if you weren't a part-time coked up whore, we might humor you at least.
Anyways, now I know better after spending some time with my Sis. You know her, right? She's that girl who comes by my apartment at least 2x a week to use my awesome internets. The one who's too pretty to be related to me? Yeah her.
Oh crap! She like has the hookup to like a bunch of things. She can cut in line everywhere and no one would care. She can be like "Do you think you can just give this to me for free?" or "Can I get a beer, my IDs in the car"
That kind of thing doesn't happen to guys. I don't care how pretty you are.
So we (the Sis and I) went to TNT Sports Page. It's some sport's bar in Carrolton or some crap like that. We were on the only Hispanics there. I think there was one more Hispanic... but he could of been the cook on break. All white bar. All white country bar. All white country bar with a live band called Odessa playing. SERIOUSLY. Totally out of my element. Hell.. I could barely laugh at the college kids trying to impress their dates by dancing homosexually. It was madness.
It was a 21 and up club, with a drink minimum, old people, a group of over the hill country lesbians sitting at the table next to us, and my Sis' coworkers & boss there. I knew there would be wacky hijinks soon.
so there I was.
Watching half of my Sis' coworkers on the bar participating in a Wet Tshirt contest. My sis was somewhere in the crowd; I didn't care as long as she wasn't on the stage. I turn my head to the left and noticed I was standing next to the participate's boss.
How awkward would it be to have your boss watch you win a wet Tshirt contest? seriously?
Anyways... lesson learned:
Although girls can get what they want in this society, it doesn't stop people from thinking you dance on bars while your boss watches in your freetime.

Media TuesdayWhy not have a Media Tuesday?! It's a cool idea right? Offering some of my favorite media to my favorite people--my blogging audience!
That's right, I love you guys! And you love me more.
Anywho, I started watching this show starring Tori Spelling. It's like a scripted-reality sort of thing. It's all about her realizing she's a spoiled, bad actress that everyone hates and makes fun of all the time. I haven't decided if I like it yet. It's like on the cusp of being absolutely hilarious. I want some feedback kids. So all you peeps with high-speed LAN connections better download this. There's 3 episodes so far. This is the first one.
If you like this alot, I have more. the next episodes are funner. We can arrange something.
