In My Day We Watched Solid Gold and We Liked It

I'm really excited about the unique blog niche I now fill called "when I don't blog about blogging I blog about dogs or TV." Here are my notes from last night's So You Think You Can Dance.

When Janette got sent home I suddenly didn't care about the show anymore because it suddenly became about who America likes best and not about the "best" dancer. I realize this is the point of the show, but aside from having value as a social experiment about the taste of the kind of people who call in to vote, it's disappointing. Notice how dancing with Evan=Kiss of death. I'm just saying.

Wade Robson danced in long pants instead of knickers. Why? To make himself more of a focal point or are those legs of his just too long for knickers? Think about it. Did you know the only movie Wade Robson has downloaded for a while is "The Notebook"? Makes me want to see The Notebook. Is there dancing in that movie? (Keep track of Wade's downloads here. I do.) Wade Robson. Wade Robson. Wade Robson. Wade Robson. So interesting.

Katie Holmes' "dance" was a joke. I'm not sure what's going on there. She seems a little out of it. I hate to criticize anyone's "religion," you know, and Scientology does serve a purpose. The purpose it serves is to provide a front for brainwashing cute girls to marry gay guys. But I digress.

I feel that Brandon and Janine have the best EQ (you know, the emotional counterpart of IQ). They seem the most poised and best able to handle criticism. Kayla seems VERY fragile. Maybe winning would be good for her and teach her to be more professional and tough. But maybe her psyche can't handle the tumultuous world of dance. I don't care who wins as long as it's not Evan. I think Evan is nice and talented. But I hate watching him dance. Admit it--you do too. You feel like you should like it because he's so nice, but if you're being honest with yourself and with me--it is torture. Evan. Evan. Matt Roloff. Evan. So interesting.

If it does come down to Evan in the finale I think in order for him to claim the title of America's favorite dancer he should have to win a dance-off with Elijah Wood. I'm just saying.


  1. So, tickets for the tour go on sale tomorrow at 10 am. Nov. 7th.

    Also, I kind of want a t-shirt that says "SYTYCD" on the front and "Wade" on the back. Too nerdy? Says too much about me?

  2. SO is that "Stone's Fall" book any good. I liked his "Instance of the Fingerpost" (except the ending was weird/lame). I know that should be italicised but I don't know how to do that in a blog comment.

  3. The only dancing in the Notebook is done in the middle of the street below the street lights. Not terribly fancy, but it works in the story.

  4. we didn't like it, we LOVED it! not sold on sytycd yet, but americas best dance crew will change your life.

  5. Yes, Katie's "Dance" was more of a smiley walk around the stage. Sometimes she was even carried, It was weak.

    I like Evan though. He's not the most talented, but he is different. I like different.

  6. Ha! Why can't Tom just come out already? I thought Katie's "singing" and "dancing" was funny, but not nearly as funny as Paula's "singing" and "dancing".

    You are so right about Evan. At the very beginning of the show, he would sometimes remind me of a dorkier version of Jason Bateman and seriously, how cute is Jason? But now it's all just sweet, sleepy-eyed Evan and WHAT IS AMERIKER THINKING?

    Wade is amazing, knickers or no.

    Jeanine is my favorite. If I was a boy I would be all over that.

  7. Kacy + Wade = blog heaven
