American Idol 2019 – Top 5

To our original followers you well know that we started this site about nine years ago because of reality shows American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance.  Our main reason is to promote people who are following their dreams and only see success.  After several years of following each we did back away because they changed the format or canceled the show like American Idol moving from Fox to ABC.  This year we are following them again and we started with American Idol 2019.

First of all we want to say that we only record these shows because we do not like commercials and on record we can fast forward past the commercials.  This weeks AI was 2 hours long and there were 85 commercials so if each commercial was a minute (Some were less than 30 seconds) out watched approximately 60 minutes of commercials out of a 120 minute long show.  Do the math!  There were 9 commercial beaks and the last break was 13 commercials.  So we record.

Katy Perry’s outfit looked to be directed toward Flower Shops and Melon growers and she succeed in getting their attention we think.  Maybe even viewers that we out there in the botanical industry. If Katy needs an assistant to dress her in the latest styles, please give a call and we will make you outstanding.  (we are one of the billions of Katy’s followers on Twitter)

Tonight two contestants were cut and that was Wade and Lacey.  All the contestants this year are outstanding and our actual inspiration for restarting our posts was Wade.  Even though he was cut tonight we think Wade highlights why American Idol started and he probably has inspired all those viewers out there in TV-Land who have people telling then they are not good enough, or you could never go on that show, or on and on about how you must listen to then because they know.  BUT instead, you listen to that voice deep inside yourself that says “Follow your dreams and get out there and show the world what you are and can do. Take that first step toward your dream and the rest will follow!”  Look at Wade, a tough time growing up and he did not stop or feel sorry for himself, he took the first step and millions have watched hi journey to this point and will for sure continue for him until he wishes to stop.  Thank you Wade.

So next week the top three will perform and this years American Idol will be chosen.  We flipped a coin to choose and it came up Liane, who is here for the second time.  It’s our opinion that Lionel is supporting Alejandro.  Alejandro a talent and a great self promoter, in fact is all of the AI shows we ever watched Alejandro has self promoted himself better then anyone before him.  Smart thinking we believe, if you don’t win then leave your mark and leave them asking for more.

Hope you voted for your favorite!

We have a challenge for all our followers.  We recently purchased two bracelets from “4oceans.com” so we can brag that we have helped remove two pounds of crap / garbage from our oceans and we challenge you folks out there in cyber-land to match us.  We plan to purchase one per week.  So come on, let’s start cleaning up Mother Earth.  Click on the link above to check the site out and save our planet.

We have nothing else to report except we are happy to report that the “Mind and Body” Class we are taking is awesome.  We will soon begin posting on the class since we are quickly becoming “Foodies”.  Now that is a miracle.  🙂

The Fountain of Youth – Our Opinion

When we started posting way back in 2009 we made it clear that we were not or do not research anything and spell checking is non-existant.  We left the research up to the reader.  This has changed based on the kind of posting we have done recently.  If someone would have told us five years ago that we would be posting about our Belief System, The Arc of the Covenant, The End of our Known World, Where the heck is Jesus, on and on, we would have said “No Flicking way!”.

And now, we even research.  Yes, this stuff needs research and the cool thing about research is we never know where we will end up.  Like this post, we got here during research on the story that Jesus did not die and he and Mary Magdalene (PG) went to Portugal and there they raised their daughter.  So we were looking at our library and we found a very old book that someone gave us 20 years ago about “alchemy”.  The conclusion most people think about alchemy is turning lead into gold and if we found that secrete, we would not be typing these words.  Our staff of super models would be doing our blog posts for us, but that is only in our minds.  What we did find is a section about The Fountain of Youth.

For hundreds maybe thousands of year’s people have been looking for the Fountain of Youth, the most famous being Marco Polo, but our research says that Marco was not looking for the fountain.  It really doesn’t matter, because he did not find it.  There are many other who claim to have found it, but like we believe the Arc of the Covenant does not exist, we believe the Fountain of Youth is not a place, it’s a formula in the alchemy book and we have filled in what is needed.  As you probably know we don’t believe in accidents and we did not find this accidentally, we have been wondering if it’s possible to get younger, and of course, we do believe that “anything is possible and there are no limitations”.  What is cool is most of the ingredients we are already doing as our daily and weekly routine.  We did go out and find a few additional meditations to include and we have been executing this formula for about a month.  We feel the change folks, our health is changing back to our younger years and we are not only doing this formula, but we are working with our doctors in solving the one issue we have had for many years, and that is shortness of breath.  The cause is mainly the genetic illness called “Ortho-static Hypotension”.  We did a post on this and we found that compression stockings take care of the dizziness, but because the heart and lungs get out of sync the minute we start vigorous exercise we lose our breath.  Just yesterday on a visit to our primary care doctor we found out that about a year ago we had started a medication to cure this, but we had stopped for some unknown reason.  We have since started again and of course, this leads us to our belief that back then we were not ready for this solution and now we are.  Maybe it’s because on our Uber ride we met a medical researcher that works for Stanford and has amazing energy or the medical student that we gave a ride to?  Everything everyone does has an effect somewhere in the universe.  We don’t dwell on this stuff, we just believe that God/The Universe is watching us follow our path and guiding us along.  So here we go getting younger with each moment.  The wait has been well worth it and we will track our progress so we can report to you when we reach our goal of forty years old.  The formula says that it will change our body, mind, and spirit so that it’s all in sync.  We will keep our mind clear and stay in the moment so that is we skip something we will be notified.

This July we will 75 years old and as of just yesterday the Uber driver thought we were still working and our age is 55, so we are 20 years ahead already.  Once we get to mid 40’s we plan to pass on the formula to a few friends and guide them through the process.  It will work folks, but if you’re dedicated it becomes fun and that what this is all about.  We of course will continue to share our experiences with others and help others follow their dreams.  We have had a ton of fun playing with Reiki Energy.  Of course we have had fun with Astral Travel and some of the new places to visit like Telos.  Did we mention we once said “We want to live to 200 years old”?  This has changed to “We want everyone to live as long as they wish”.  We were channeled by Roy back in the early 90’s and everything he said has come true except one thing and that is how and when we will die.  We know the “how” and that will generate the when, so when we decide to do the “how” we will be ready to pass on and since we have already been to the other side, we have no fear and will greet the other souls with a celebration and plan our next life.

We wish to end by saying to we send our blessings to all those earth angels to came to our assistance yesterday at 3250 Alpine Road in Portola Valley.  They all came from everywhere and we know we needed that experience because we were a bit over confident and the Universe sent a message LOLOLOL.

Thanks to everyone who has stopped by and to the new subscribers (One from Russia not named Putin).  We are sitting here listening to “My Fathers Eyes” by Eric Clampton and feeling we are one with all that is.  How beautiful the view is and we wish to tell everyone they are not alone and all you have to do to find out is reach out to the next person you see.  Smile and see what happens.  Say “Hola” or “Hello” or “I see you”, and see the response.  Have fun folks.

We have nothing at this time except to send many blessings to all.

Gluten Free and Sugar Free starts today

Here is what led up to our decision and it’s mainly because two people in my life suggested too go with this.  We do feel good, but there are nagging aches and pains that keep coming and going.  My sleep is not so good and we are scheduled to take the sleep analysis test in February, and we will, but we are still going to do this.  My niece listed about 10 things that made her life batter and our other friend said it changed her life.

Normally we would not announce a major life change, but we will be posting our progress along the way and we will include any “hiccups”.  Hey humans are not perfect so straying is part of the journey.  We are going to apply the same procedure that we used to quit smoking.  Any urge or decision on a type of food will be handled with a mindfulness meditation, just like handling smoking urges.  (We have been smoke free for 6 years this month).

The sugar free is a huge change for us.  Good grief!  We love our junk foods like Gold Fish, Sugar Frosted Flakes, Honey Nut Cheerios, or any cereal that is “sugar saturated”.  Then the candies out there like Butterfingers, Snickers, and just about any candy on the market.  Then the hidden foods with sugar will be a challenge and this is something we want to report.  If we find a food that says “Gluten Free” and is not, we will report it to you.  So to the companies that say they are Gluten Fee, we are telling you now that we will find you and expose your “fake” claims.  Sure it sells food, but not with exaggerated claims or in English, your lies.   If you are invested in the market on junk food stock we suggest you sell soon.  Please take your profits and donate to a nonprofit organization of your choosing.  If you stay in, then it’s your own risk and we can not be held accountable.

So we started by dumping all our stash’s of sugar and right now we are drinking coffee without sugar.  This is huge in itself! 🙂 We are now appreciating the taste of coffee and need to research is this coffee is gluten free.  We think so, but hey, we will check it out.  Then there is my all time favorite junk food a Quarter Pounder with Cheese.  (We are sitting here thinking about this one)  Bye-bye quarter pounder, our health is more important.  (I can hear my arteries cheering).  Then there is pizza and a zillion other fast foods.  Compared to smoking this will be a challenge and we are thinking that maybe becoming vegan would be the way to go.  (Something to consider)

We do love pasta and that will soon become are new friend.  The sauces will be checked but we like butter as a topping. No cheese of course.  Anchovies are another topping that is a long time favorite.  We doubt if gluten can exist in anchovies, but we will check.

Looks like we are starting a new and exciting adventure and our intent to the universe is to send us someone or a mob or two to guide us as we progress along.  We will be doing some heavy meditations to keep our mind clear so we will see the answers or the people who will be sent.  There has to be a few gluten free souls that came down with us in our soul group. (This where they will surface to join up in our happy journey)

We thank all our subscribers and followers for stopping by an checking out our posts, and to the friends that know us personally please pick yourself off the floor and continue with a great day.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to thank “Ladi” and Jane for their input and support.

American Idol 2018 – Audition #1 Day 2

Another entertaining episode and we did enjoy each contestant.  We usually pick one contestant from the early auditions that we think will be the next American Idol or at least in the top ten.  So here is our choice:

Laine Hardy American Idol # 50098

We liked his voice because it is very unique and his singing seemed like he has been singing forever.

The other person that we remember is the girl friend of the guy who has a crush on Katy Perry.  Why her?  Because she had her ear to the door when he was auditioning and couldn’t get through the door fast enough when he stopped singing.  She is cute, but hey, we are Katy Perry fans.  What is she going to do when her boy friend is in Hollywood?  Probably go with him.  We send her the best.

So here is our second choice from tonight:

David Francisco American Idol # 20098 and a link to his story David Francisco bike accident

So great show and we will continue next week.  Thanks to all for stopping by.

We have nothing else to report except we wonder if they went up against The Voice on purpose?

American Idol 2018 – Audition #1

Filed under: TV Shows — alaboutnothing @ 10:12 pm

Judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan were beyond awesome in their debut of American Idol 2018.  It was entertaining in every way. Funny, drama, interesting, and even though we did not have any expectations,  we were happy to see that it will be a great season.  Thank ABC for bringing back an entertainment icon and inviting hundreds of young people to follow their dreams.

We do have a suggestion, though.  The blonde screamer who though she is gods gift to music did make us happy to hear her stop singing/screaming should get together with the Russian Dude with the ultra high voice.  Then get married, and go rent a Mustang convertible and drive around neighborhoods singing together breaking windows from NY to LA.  When in LA there is a little know religious sect up in the mountains of Irvine East that praise the high voices of the God Screamy-Mimi.  They both would probably rule this sect and have a constant audience of fans.

We were so entertained that we and an inkling to tryout for American Idol, but we beyond the age limit so far we need to wait for American Idol for Seniors with walkers.  Even if we were the right age, because Katy Perry has been our female favorite singer since she was born would have been an issue.  Without first drinking two or three six packs of beer, we probably could not have made a sound just seeing Katy.  So maybe in our next life we will do some Kundalini Meditations and be ready for singing in front of Katy, Lionel, and Luke.

Thanks again ABC, we are looking for a great season for American Idol.

We have nothing to add except we are putting together a new Katy Perry song list.

American Idol and The Voice 2016

AI 2011 logoThis is the last year for American Idol and since we have been watching since day 1, it will be like losing a friend.  I am guessing it’s due to falling ratings, but we are just guessing.  The sad part is that American Idol was the 1st to start the reality talent show format and when they leave there won’t be another show to replace their format.  The loss of a format for new talent like American Idol uses is not duplicated on any other show that we can think of.  The Voice pre-picks, America’s Got Talent is not a format for singers, and the X Factor currently is only in England.  Maybe Fox will come up with some kind of replacement for pure singing contestants similar to American Idol.  One thing for sure is that up until this season the viewing audience never know who stayed and who went home before the telecast was completed, but this year there have been several “leaks” about results already.  Guess some of the soon to be unemployed employees don’t give a hoot.

voiceThe Voice 2016 started this past Monday with the “Blind Auditions” and once again it is looking like an awesome season.  We say this every year, but it’s true every time.  With Adam, Pharrell, Blake, and Christina as the judges it for sure will be entertaining watching the judge banter.  Tuesday was the 2nd “Blind Audition” and so far we have picked three of four possible winners. Have you picked anyone?  We wonder if the N. Michigan “car-poolies” will be following The Voice this season.  (We won’t know because our source evaporated).  (We think yes).

We have nothing else to report except that even though we never get involved with political news, we can’t resist whats going on this year in the U.S.A.  After all we guess these guys and gals running for the presidency  also are chasing a dream.  (We are not sure what the dream is but maybe we will know by next November).

The Voice Fall Season 2015

voiceIt’s official Blake and Gwen are dating even though a few weeks ago when rumors were flying they said they were just friends.  That goes to prove you can’t trust what two single people seen sneaking around say.  Will this tip the scales when it comes to judging?  They are now on the same team so to speak.  It will be interesting to see if Adam or Pharrell will even mention it.

At least the talent is awesome this year and it’s really getting intense as the “live” shows get near.

We also have been following X-Factor except it’s tough to follow their scheduling on Sunday and Monday at the start to Saturday and Sunday now from what we understand.  Simon Cowell is a judge there and will be coming to the US to be a judge on the next season of America’s Got Talent.  Kind of a long commute from London to New York,  but he probably has his own private jet to cruise around in.

We have nothing else to report except to give a shout out to the Northern Michigan folks.  Because I spent so much time in the Upper Peninsula I been following a sight that posts various sightseeing photos of places like Copper Harbor, the end of US 41, the copper mines, etc.  and now I want to go back and visit.  Maybe next summer.

To all the veterans out there in cyberland we say THANK YOU!
