Remember When I Was A Gokehead?

Remember Danny Gokey, from American Idol?  He’s releasing an album soon, and he is HOT on the cover of it.  And I never even considered his looks when I was a gokehead.  I just liked his voice.

Someone’s got themselves a mighty good stylist.

You’re Not Going To Believe This

You guys.  I hope you’re sitting down for this.  It turns out, that Paula Abdul used to be addicted to pain killers.  Shocking.

Let’s get right to it, shall we?

The Mother Of All Mock Dock Posts – With The Promised Photo(s)

I say that not because this post will be particularly clever or funny or mocky, but because I have SO MUCH to tell you about this Chicago trip that I’m quite certain it will be the longest post in Mock Dock history.  So, if you’re interested, plan on staying awhile.  If you’re not interested, just scroll down to the more tolerable bite-size posts that are typical of The Mock Dock. 

Ok.  So we started our journey on Tuesday morning at 10ish, and piled into Leroy’s giant tricked out Tahoe.  Leroy, God bless ‘er, was SICK AS A DOG, but still totally psyched and ready for the festivities, and armed with loads of OTC drugs to combat funk symptoms.  So off we went.

Naturally, we blasted the latest Britney Spears album pretty much the whole way there.  We got to our hotel (Westin on Michigan Ave – just a few steps from Water Tower), threw our stuff in the room, and headed out to shop at H&M and Filene’s Basement before grabbing lunch/dinner at Ditka’s.  We had absolutely amazing service at pretty much every establishment we patroned over this past two days, and Ditka’s was no exception.  Food was delish, and our bartender/waiter was precious.  We stayed there a couple hours and then went back to the room to prepare for the Mother Of All Concerts.

American Idol Recap

sp32-20090420-210523

How much do you love this photo of what could quite possibly be the ugliest mug shot EVER?  And I know what you’re thinking.  You’re thinking – what does this hideous mugshot have to do with American Idol?  And the answer is NOTHING.  Jump in for the recap!

Idol Night!

sp32-20090408-183652

You guys – Simon Cowell may not be coming back to Idol after this season.  I’m telling you right now, that unless they replace him with someone equally fabulous, I will not watch it.  And you know American Idol is totally FREAKING OUT about the possibility of me, Mockarena, not watching the show.  

Anyway, I’ve kind of resigned myself to the fact that Adam The Freak Lambert is going to win this season.  There are too many freak-lovers out there for him not to win.  So I guess I’ll just have to be happy if my beloved Gokey comes in second.  Sigh.  He’ll still get a record deal, and I’ll still buy his CD, and I’ll still totally mock and snub my nose at Adam’s CD.  So all is well.

Now then.  On to the recap.

Idol Night – Please God Don’t Let The Shrieky Dude Win

sp32-20090407-195758

I’m so happy because tonight marks the first top 12 night which is only an hour long.  Don’t get me wrong, I love American Idol, but 1.5 hours or 2 hours is just far too long.  One hour?  Perfect.

I cannot tell you how much I DON’T want Adam Lambert to win.  HATE him.

Now then – on with the recap.

Gokey Night

sp32-20090331-192551

You know why I’m a Gokehead, besides the fact that Danny’s voice completely blows me away?  I love that he is the anti-media person.  Like – his wife freaking DIED a few months ago, and this past weekend he had to attend his grandpa’s funeral, and he just never uses the crappy stuff that happens to him as a way to gain the affection of voters.  He just sings.  I love that.

Now then.  On to the performances.

sp32-20090326-081056

So since Obamaprompter screwed up my Tuesday evening, and since I was watching BB King last night, this recap is late.  For those of you who care what I think about the top ten, jump in!

Idol Recap – Top 11 – CALLING ALL GOKEHEADS!

sp32-20090317-200958

Jump in for the American Idol recap of the Top 11 – It’s Country Week – so I’m especially hostile this evening.  🙂  But I love me some Danny Gokey, and I’m still feeling all sorts of proud of my “Gokeheads” name.  So let’s begin.

And So It Begins.

sp32-20081215-111119

We’re down to the top 13 on American Idol.  And this is the point in the season where I get even more obsessed with the show than I already was, which I realize is unfathomable to many of you who know me personally and hear me talk about it incessantly.

I have every intention of doing my weekly recap of the performances, and for those of you who don’t care what I think about the performances, or American Idol for that matter, feel free to just skip these posts altogether.  But for those of you who DO watch the show, I want to hear your thoughts on the performances too.  So COMMENT for crying out loud.  It’s no fun just talking to myself.

Jump in for the recap of Michael Jackson night!
