this is an American Idol/country rant. avoid if you wish.
why American Idol? why am I watching you when I know all my favorite singers won’t win because they aren’t primarily country singers?
I mean, I realize people who aren’t country or pop singers have won this show. I think. probably. most likely.
don’t get me wrong, I think Scotty’s great. (…I sorta hate Lauren, mainly because she sang Miley Cyrus and didn’t lose for it.) I just wish that someone who has a different and unique voice could’ve won this year. James, Haley, Casey, Paul.. so much talent. so much.
I cried so hard when all of those contestants left. judge me if you wish, but I got attached to those four. I realize it’s creepy and whatnot, but I still cried buckets when they left.
then I ranted.
so yeah. I think a lot of people voted extremely safely this year, and that bothers me. if you love country, awesome. props to you, because once again AI has given you two choices: country… or slightly different country.
my best friend is gonna kill me for hatin’ on country so much, mainly because she loves it and she has tried to convert me into a country fan. a lot.
it’s not that I hate the genre, I just dislike country-pop singers who seem to be everywhere now. they sound the same, gosh dang it. and I can only take so many blue jeans and heart breaks.
if I want country, I’ll listen to bluegrass and Nickel Creek.
best quote to express my feelings?
"That’s okay. I’ll just go into my room, lay down, and listen to country music. the music of pain." -Xander, Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
seriously, some of these artists are like Russian novels of pain.
note: if you adore all country and are now out for my blood: I’m sorry. I did not mean to offend you, I swear. o.o don’t hate me.
....Tumblr, you are so confusin'. I love you, but you make no sense sometime.
just throwin’ that out there.
and I’s still in Newsie writin’ mode because I just wrote out some fanfic with my friend. heh. my poor, poor teachers. my homework will be covered with ‘ain’t’ an’ a total lack of completed words endin’ in ‘ing’.
sigh. *turns on soundtrack for the 20th time tonight. best homework/anythin’ music ever.*
Hi! I'm Becky. My Newsies blog is Spot Conlon's territory. We've got a lot of Newsies lovers here on tumblr and have become a really tight community. And we get very excited when a Newsies lover joins tumblr.

In the sidebar there is a link called "TNC List" or something like that. TNC stands for Tumblr Newsies Community. If you want to be added to the list we would be happy to have you!
hi! it’s great to meet ya, Becky. I got so excited when I saw how many people are Newsie addicts on here! I’m one of the roughly 4 Newsie fans in my area, and sometimes I attack my family with random trivia about Newsies or the actors, and I think they get a bit.. freaked out.. ^^’
anyways, I’d love to join TNC! thanks for being so nice to the new kid, heh.
