American Idol Breaks Some Hearts

Posted By on Thu, May 27, 2010 at 11:36 AM

Were you upset that Crystal Bowersox lost to Lee DeWyze on American Idol? I did not think so, but I've heard through the internet that some people become completely invested in the show, and this defeat might have stung for some, especially for the mother of YouTube user "nyturkeyduster," who says he decided to record his mom because she gets so worked up, "it's unhealthy." Doing his mom a favor by using YouTube as intervention a la Taylor Hasselhoff, the proud son posted his mom's freakout. At 1:53, when the host asks how it feels to be the new American idol, Mom answers "Like shit!" and tells Seacrest, DeWyze, the TV, or all of America "'cause you're an asshole!" Really, was this the tipping point that ruined her '"whole life"?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
