And yeah, people get shot every day, big fucking deal, but I'm allowed to feel shitty that it happened in my back yard. I'm also pissed because I know that tomorrow some racist fuck's going to be on the radio talking about how this sort of thing never happens at white schools. Except it does, but nobody likes to talk about it. Hell, there was a shooting (non-fatal) at my predominantly white school when I was a teen. That was never on TV, though. I wonder why. Because nobody died? Yeah, right. This sort of shit isn't supposed to happen here. :| Oh look, instead of gun control I'm trying to go off on racism. Don't mind me, I just blog here.
Anyway, congratulations to Jordin for winning American Idol. It was a fun show, for the most part; I loved Tony Bennett and Kelly Clarkson especially. I also loved the part where Reuben and Jordin sang about pushing him up the hill. Somehow I don't think poor Jordin could actually do that, but I've been surprised before. XP
I don't know if the mockery of past hopefuls is a tradition on the show, but I gotta say some moments kinda soured things for me, tbh. I mean, they're already
Well, there's my schizophrenic entry of the night. See ya on the flip side.
ETA And I'm a totally worse loser for forgetting -- thank you, anonymous LJ giftie giver. I ♥ you, whoever you are.
