All Odds Against Paige Miles

Last week, Paige Miles got voted off American Idol, ending her run in 11th place, joining Lacey Brown in missing the cut on this year's American Idols LIVE! Tour 2010, just like my all-time favorite American Idol contestant Jasmine Murray from last season.  She was in the bottom 3 along with Tim Urban and Katie Stevens.  She struggled with the Phil Collins song, "Against All Odds."  The theme was Billboard #1's. The mentor was Miley Cyrus, who performed earlier in the results show.  Also during the results show, Joe Jonas duetted with Demi Lovatto.  Paige Miles was denied the judges' save before she would sing on the results show.  After her American Idol run, she wants to continue to pursue a music career.  She hails from Naples, Florida.  She auditioned in Dallas, Texas.  She was completely unknown before she was named to the top 24.  Her lack of screen time before the semifinalis worked against her, as she was unable to build a fanbase, but I believe that she is underrated.  Like Todrick Hall, she received mixed messages from the judges.

No More Gender War

The worldwide gender war must come to an end.  This is the main purpose of this blog.  We need a men's movement, and I hope the gender war will end by 2019.  The men's liberation is coming faster than we know it.  Feminism is based on lies, false allegations, contradictions, and forged statistics.  Feminism is nothing but a Trojan horse movement, that is, a hate movement under the pretense of an equality movement.  Feminism is about female superiority under the pretense of gender equality.  Injustice has been done to men under the pretense of justice for women.  Men have been oppressed under the pretense of uplifting women.  Male students have been shortchanged in academia.  Fathers have been separated from their children and denied visitation rights.  Sons of single mothers have been poisoned with Ritalin under the pretense of helping girls in academia.  The government healthcare budget has been unfairly focused on female health, even though men are at higher risk healthwise.  Men have been facing harsher sentences for the same crimes as women.  Too many innocent men been incarcerated under false charges filed by women.  This gender war must end.  I have a dream that one day, male students will have an equal footing with their female counterparts.  I have a dream that one day, government will fund male health and female health equally.  I have a dream that one day, women will be held as equally accountable as men.

  • Destroying Familes ≠ Protecting Women
  • Shortchanging Boys in Academia ≠ Helping Girls in Academia
  • Keep Trivial Family Issues Out of Criminal Courts
  • Stop Converting Troubled Marriages Into Criminal Cases
  • Say "No" to Anti-Marriage, Anti-Family, Fatherless Welfare State
  • Make Laws Fair and Equitable for All
  • Say "No" to Feminist Culture of Mass Irresponsibility
  • Stop Infantilizing Women
  • Real Women Have Self-Esteem and Dignity
  • Real Women Reject Privilege Over Men and Children
  • Real Women Succeed by Proving Their Worth
  • Real Women Take Responsibility for Their Actions
  • Real Women Do Not Make False Allegations or File False Criminal Cases Against Men
  • Believing that discrimination against men is acceptable but that discrimination against women is not = discrimination against men.

Leave Right Now Lacey Brown

One year ago, I was shocked when my all-time favorite American Idol contestant Jasmine Murray got voted off along with Jorge Núñez on top 13 of last season. Today, my prediction came true, that Lacey Brown got the first boot among the top 12 of American Idol season 9, thus ending her run in 12th place.  She is my least favorite contestant of this season of American Idol and my third least favorite finalist in American Idol history.  This week is Rolling Stones week, and Lacey Brown sang "Ruby Tuesday."  She was in the bottom three with her roommate Paige Miles and the Vote for the Worst pick Tim Urban.  She auditioned for American Idol season 9 in Dallas, Texas.  She originally auditioned for last season, but she was cut in the green mile round in front of Megan Joy, who is my second least favorite of last season.  Lacey Brown is worse than Megan Joy and Alexis Grace.

American Idol season 9 top 12

On March 11, 2010, the top 12 of American Idol season 9 has been revealed.  And to me it is both good news and bad news.  The good news is that Michael Lynche and Paige Miles made the top 12.  The bad news is that Todrick Hall did not make it.  Todrick Hall should have made the top 12 instead of Tim Urban.  Lilly Scott should have made the top 12 instead of Lacey Brown.  I believe that Lacey Brown will end her American Idol journey in either 11th or 12th place. 

Here is how I rank the top 12:

1. Michael Lynche
2. Paige Miles
3. Andrew Garcia
4. Casey James
5. Crystal Bowersox
6. Aaron Kelly
7. Lee DeWyze
8. Katie Stevens
9. Siobhan Magnus
10. Didi Benami
11. Tim Urban
12. Lacey Brown

Fire and Brimstone (and Ethnic Cleansing)

On tonight's results show, it is the end of the road for Jermaine Sellers.  Jermaine Sellers is headed back to church.  He got eliminated along with John Park, Michelle Delamor, and Haeley Vaughn.  I real shocked about the results show.  Who should have went home are Lacey Brown, Didi Benami, and Andrew Garcia.  I am all right with John Park going home.  He said he would go home gracefully.  He was singing Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On?".  He is a church singer from Joliet, Illinois.  He was born in February 1983.  He previously competed in the BET reality TV show Sunday Best.  I was not officially pulling for Jermaine Sellers.  I am pulling for Michael Lynche.

American Idol season 9 is the worst season ever.  Tonight is one of the most shocking moments in American Idol history.  I will still continue to watch the show.  Jermaine Sellers and Haeley Vaughn do not hold a candle to Jasmine Murray, Chikezie Eze, or Ju'not Joyner. 

I feel that many American Idol viewers are racist.  You must not base your votes on race, skin color, gender, or music genre preference.  Reality television is unfair to African Americans, Hispanics, and Asian Americans.  Programs like The Apprentice often stereotype Black contestants.  Black reality television contestants face discrimination at the same level on reality television as they would in everyday life.  The Center for Media and Social Research said: "Black contestants are often portrayed as stormy and indolent fringe elements, while their white counterparts are portrayed as stable and industrious collaborators. Black reality-TV contestants face discrimination at levels approaching those of everyday life." There has never been a Black bachelor on the reality television show The Bachelor, or a Black bachelorette on The Bachelorette.  African-American contestants are twice as likely Caucasian contestants to be eliminated during the first half of a reality television season, while Hispanic and Asian contestants are three times as likely.  I suggest instituting a "Vote for the Minorities" organization.

This is just the beginning of 2010, and moreso the beginning of the decade.  2010 will end with me being happy.  One good news is that my most anticipated video game Final Fantasy XIII is coming soon.  I will be going on a trip to New York City after this season of American Idol is over.
