Off Topic: American Idol
I'm not really a fan of the Fox Network's T.V. series American Idol, but I do often end up watching it if only because the wife is a fan. If she was doing something else, I'd probably stick with watching something on my old stand- by the History Channel.
I'll have to admit, I agree with most everyone else that Sanjaya Malakar, the Indian(?) contestant should have been booted long ago. I can't believe he made it through the earlier rounds much less the last one. I joked to the wife it must be some kind of organized movement that's keeping him on the show. Hey, there's no limit to how many times someone can call in their vote, right?
Looks like I may have been right.
Shock jock, Howard Stern, has been promoting this site on his radio show (you need to click on the link in the upper right to get past the sponsor's page) that's trying to get people to vote for the worst American Idol contestants.
Looks like it's working and that is kind of funny, but I also think it's kind of rude. Why try to ruin a T.V. show millions of people like?
Still, it does go to show that some internet based movements can be effective.
