What American Idol winner was the first female performer named Entertainer of the Year two years in a row by the Academy of Country Music?

Carrie Underwood, in 2008 and 2009. She won Idol in 2005, its fourth season.

IDOL CHATTER

When American Idol debuted in 2002, it unleashed a pop culture juggernaut, leading to pop stars, an annual arena tour, and several years as the #1 show on TV. Idol production company 19 Entertainment also planned to make a movie at the conclusion of each season that would star that year’s winner and runner-up. Only one was made: From Justin to Kelly starring Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini, a cheesy, spring break beach romance. It was lambasted by critics and made only $4.9 million. The abysmal performance led to the cancellation of any and all future Idol movies … including From Ruben to Clay, starring season two’s Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken. Production had already begun on the film, which was going to be a modern-day version of the Bing Crosby/Bob Hope buddy comedy musical Road movies of the 1940s, such as Road to Singapore and Road to Morocco.

A real oldie, but goodie -

A woman had just gotten out of the shower when her doorbell rang. “Who is it?” she shouted.
“It’s the blind man,” the visitor answered. The woman decided that it didn’t matter if she opened the door without her clothes on, since the man couldn’t see. So she hurried over and flung the door open wide.
Shocked, the man said, “Um, I’m from the window treatments store. Where do you want me to put these blinds?”

REALITY BITES

In 2010, D. J. Goodson, an inmate at a Pennsylvania prison, sued reality-show stars Kourtney, Khloé, and Kim Kardashian for $75,000 on grounds of “extreme emotional distress.” The prisoner said other inmates wanted to watch Keeping Up with the Kardashians on the prison lounge’s only TV, forcing him to sit through it, and he claimed the experience left him permanently scarred. (The case was thrown out of court.)
(I guess the prison doesn't have anything else to keep him busy, huh?)

General-Lee expensive

In 2007, Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider put his orange 1969 Dodge Charger up for auction on eBay. It wasn’t the “General Lee” used in the original show, only in a TV movie, but it didn’t matter—a man named William Fisher came in with a winning bid of $9.9 million. It would have been the most expensive item ever sold on eBay … but Fisher failed to pay and closed his eBay account. A year later, the car sold at an auction house for $450,000.

Friday Musings and Assortment

Friday, May 17, 2013



I am going to try something a little bit new to me - beginning today, I will be counting my calories down instead of up. I will start with 1300 calories per day (2000 on Saturdays and Sundays) and subtract as I eat rather than starting at "0" and counting up. I have the feeling that this might work better for me since I find myself often going a little (or sometimes a lot) over my calories when I have a range like 1200 to 1500 daily. We'll see...I'll let you know how it's going in a week or so.

Now on to the usual stuff:

A husband and wife were asleep late one night when someone knocked on their door. The husband said grumpily, “I’m not getting out of bed at this time of night.” But soon they heard a louder knock.
“Please go answer it,” the wife said. So he dragged himself downstairs and opened the door to find a drunk man standing there.
The drunk man slurred, “Can you give me a push?”
“No, get out of here. It’s the middle of the night,” the husband said, slamming the door. When he got back in bed, his wife said, “That wasn’t very nice. Think how you would feel if your car had broken down and you needed help.”
“But the guy was drunk,” the husband countered.
“He needs your help!” the wife insisted.
Grudgingly, the husband went back downstairs and opened the door, but he didn’t see the stranger. So he shouted, “Do you still want a push?”
He heard a voice cry out, “Yes, please!”
Still unable to see the drunk man, he asked, “Where are you?”
“I’m over here,” the stranger replied, “on your swing set.”

“Can You Tell Me How to Get to Sesame Street?”

Sesame Street producer Jon Stone wanted the show’s theme song to build momentum and excitement—exactly what an opening song should do. “Running happily, tumbling, playing along the way, but always intent on getting to Sesame Street,” is how Stone put it in his memoir. He liked the catchy, toy-piano-driven singsong melody that Joe Raposo and cowriter Bruce Hart came up with but hated their lyrics—he thought they were trite and full of clichés (“Sunny day, sweeping the clouds away”), with references he felt would be dated, like “everything’s A-OK,” which Stone derided as “astronaut slang.” Nevertheless, he gave in and used it. Result: It’s been the theme song for the show’s entire run from 1969 to 2013 and counting.
