124 Better Blind Singers Than Scott MacIntyre

So as many of you have noticed, and confronted me about, I have not been blogging about American Idol this season.

While I have watched and taken extensive notes on every episode with the full intension of blogging about them, the problem is that due to circumstances beyond my control I am not able to watch the shows until Thursday or Friday each week and I figure that by then anything I might have to say would be old news.

So I figure unless you all tell me that you still want me to do a well-after-the-fact blog at the end of each week I think I will start doing some occasional Idol related posts like the following.

For all of you non-Idol watchers Scott MacIntyre, seen here...











Sorry, here...













Even creepier, am I right?

...is a creepy looking and absolutely atrocious singer who remains on Idol week after week over far more talented competition due to the simple fact that he is blind.

Lord knows that if you have talked to Traci or me over the past couple of months then you have heard us rant about how bad he is.

I sat down with the intention of railing away at how Scott is far and away the worst singer I have seen on Idol in years. Unfortunately for me you never know who, in this overly PC culture of ours, might take offense at my criticizing someone with a handicap.

Therefore I will now be presenting you with a list, in no particular order, of visually impaired individuals who are better singers than Scott MacIntyre.

Enjoy.



1. Blind Lemon Jefferson














2. Ray Charles

















3. Pad Thai Kriengsak


















4. Sean Camille
I greatly regret having no photo of Sean, but if you went to La Tech between 1994 and 2001 you know who I am talking about. Does anyone still have the recordings of him singing "Dudley Girls" or "Gumbo Games"?

5. Col. Milk-Eye Pennyfeather, Esq














6. Blind Willie McTell

















7. Stevie Wonder












8. Blind Kitteh


















9-11. Various Artists


















Seriously now, who didnt see that coming?
If you answered Scott MacIntyre, you would be correct!

12. Robert Bradley


















Of Robert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise.

13. Blind Boy Fuller










Seriously, who is blinding all these black folk?

14-18. Blind Melon


















The whole damned band! Even the dead one.

19. Ronnie Milsap













Yes, even ronnie Milsap is better than Scott

20. Blind Joe Reynolds
















It's an epidemic.

21-25. The Scott MacIntyre Players Childrens Choir












26. Daredevil



















27. The Mentalist...























...in the Episode "Dead Man Walking."

28. Sonny Terry


















Is Obama even looking into this?

29. Megan Corkrey




















Okay, so she may not be blind, but she has killer dance moves and could out sing Scott MacIntyre while actually blinding herself with a spork.

And finally...

30-124. The Faculty, Staff and Residents of the Louisiana Center For The Blind


















This number is of course a rough estimate.

The End.

Let me know what you all want me to about the Idol blog.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Oh, so much to say here Mr. Peppermintfatty (can I call you "Peppy" for short?) Your #4 and #7 made me LOL.

I had a few classes with that guy at La Tech. Although I never had the pleasure of hearing him sing, one time he tried to make a guess that I was wearing white stockings and I had to inform him that no, those were in fact my legs in shorts! HA!

I actually don't agree that Scott is a TERRIBLE singer. I just don't find him to be a great performer. I had hoped it would turn out better but he has consistently not done very well on the show. It hasn't been good since the auditions, in my opinion.

And I know you were a fan, but I'm so happy to be rid of Megan's herky-jerky dance moves, strange pronunciations, and tattoo arm. She seems like a sweet girl, but I wasn't into it. I'm pretty sure the reaction she wants from her audience is not uncontrollable laughter.

Sean freakin Camille from Covington Loooeeeesiana, champion Gumbo Games Participant, with a penchant for the ladies' feet (the ladies didn't suspect this when he asked to touch their feet cos.. he was blind... he told me he scored more feet than a podiatrist at the health clinic... on diabetic day). I had the recording of 'Dudley Girls'... not much is missing besides the lyric 'I wanna lick you up and down, I wanna f**k you up and down'. Good times.
