My little TV indulgence

I watched "American Idol" at 8 PM. Ken and I both watch it, but I have to say, the gild is off the lily. I'm sure that once we get into the legitimate competition, I'll get into it again, but I'm finding that the auditions are just not capturing my attention this year. I'm still a little irritated that Bo Bice didn't win, and that Chris Daughtry was out as early as he was. Sure seems like Daughtry showed 'em all, though.

I was looking to see what is on TV tonight, and there really isn't much that I felt like watching. I decided on "Rio Bravo," the John Wayne movie that also has Dean Martin in it. It's on AMC, and for some reason, a Western just sounded fun to me. I'm enjoying it--I wonder how much influence Dino's sobered-up gunslinger had on Gene Wilder for "Blazing Saddles"? Hmm....

I watched and was amused.  I don't put much stock in the whole thing.  Especially when we are the ones voting and I haven't voted in a way long time!

Our votes sure don't seem to have counted for much lately. We'll see what happens this year....

Hey pallie, like what a cool Dinowonderin'...guess we will never know, but our Dino has influenced so many other great performers...probably tops would be the Elvis.  Never was, never will be anyone as cool as our King of Cool.  Oh, to return to the days when Dino walked the earth!
