- What people from other states look like
- How bad my sense of geography really is — I think this is a general Californian problem, or a specific Los Angeles Unified School District Problem.
- If your parents are priests, you are going to blow my mind
- No one on The X-Factor is even vaguely cool, but everyone on The Voice is way cooler than me. Is there a singing show for averagely cool people? What about averagely cool people that can only kind of sing?
- You can come back 10 years later and be on a reality show about losing weight (Ruben Studdard)
- I know how to spell Ruben Studdard without looking it up
- America, we have seemingly infinite talent, but also seemingly infinite distalent
- If your child/roommate/love interest/ potential love interest (PLI) can’t sing, PLEASE TELL THEM BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE
- I love judging people, even though I pretty much can’t sing well at all

…loving points #7 and #9! 🙂
Some people find it embarrassingly impossible to confine their singing to their own showers. 🙂
BTW, Texas is both east and south of California…:)
double noted! Sometimes I feel weird because I don’t think I’ve ever had the desire to even sing in the shower
Wish they would go back and do a most horrid performer show. (but they could only do it once – people would catch on and pretend to be horrible just to be on TV…horrible only works if performers really believe they are good)
There should be a wall with mug shots of bad singers in the vain of caught shoplifters
Observation #2: No, it’s not just a California problem. I’ve made my embarrassing slip ups (i.e. saying the Everglades were “close” to Jacksonville), but am virtually an atlas to my contemporaries. It’s a little concerning.
Observation #4: You’ll need to pitch this to someone. I’m seeing a sort of “Karaoke Tonight” with the best intoxicated versions of “Total Eclipse of the Heart” LA has to offer.
Observation #9: This is why you’re a humorist and not a singer. Know thy strengths.
I guess #4 is pretty much all karaoke ever
There’s always Journey.
I’ve noticed that many of the singers on those talent shows are convinced that they come pre-loaded with autotune.
I think I’d rather listen to bad singing than auto tune
Huh, I always thought that #2 was a North Eastern problem. Good to know that it isn’t just us!
haha, I am so glad that my blog has become a place to talk about the real issues plaguing America
LOL Interesting!! A fun life you lead. Thanks for the like on the OM post. Cheerleading your way.
Too many singing competitions…not that many people can really sing well (IE X-factor, which stands for eXcessively bad). That being said, I’m still singing and playing rock & roll way past my expiration date. https://www.facebook.com/Revolution.Road.LA.
Loved your second to the last point.
I have a friend who loves to kaorki (however you spell the **** word) but can’t sing on key. She’s the only one who knows she can’t sing, but why should I be the one to ruin her fantasy world? We all have our fantasy worlds. Besides, it’s too late already. Way too late. And I like having her as a friend. Telling someone she can’t sing when she thinks she can is just not the best idea. I just can’t sing at the same time as she does or I’m not able to keep on key myself.
By the way, thanks for liking my Halloween post on my f-stop fantasy blog. See? We all have our own fantasies. I like to think I can take pleasing photographs. 🙂
