Diana Degarmo and Fantasia can both get bent along with Simon and Ryan and Paula. Fact is, it doesn't matter who wins. They're both going to get record deals for top-40-style records which sound like every other Diane Warren-written crapfest.
I'm sure they're all nice people, but this whole American Idol
thing is just pushing more lousy music that teenagers will buy in droves, thus perpetuating the stranglehold that the RIAA is trying to maintain over its customers and technological innovation.
Go fuck yourselves, RIAA. Corporate
music still sucks ($1 to SST Records). This article
, however, is wholly amusing.
