Whoop-de-do, the American Idols are coming to St. Louis on 8/13. It doesn't say how much tickets are, but I'm sure they'll be like $50. I think that's standard fare for the Savvis Center.
Holy crap, I can't imagine a more horrific event. First of all, I think it's ten of the losers from this season. Their last stab at fame and fortune, I guess. Why would you pay $50 when you just spent like six months watching them on TV every week only to lose?
Why is that show on for so long, anyway? It's torture, having to come to work every week and listen to nothing but Idol chat. 'Who do you want to win?' 'Oh, I don't know, I really like Bucky (what a ridiculous name), but Ace is great too (yet another ridiculous name). Paris really rocked that song, though (need I say it again?).' Mind you, I have not seen one episode of this crap, yet I know all of their names. That's how much of this stupidity I have to be subjected to each and every week.
I quit watching Fox 2 news in the morning partly because of their coverage of this train wreck. Really, does the news need to cover this? What about the crisis in Darfur? Why, when there are so many awful things happening in the world, are they reporting on American Idol? Not to blame Fox, by the way. None of the media outlets seem to care about Africa at all. The other stations don't rehash their own shows to death, though. It's painful.
