American Idol certainly isn’t what it once was. Season 5 reinvigorated my love of music and I began to use the web to search out new music and new artists. But then came Season 6, Season 7, and now Season 8. How uninspiring AI has become. Adding a 4th judge was one of the dumber things Idol has done. I understand Idol was never just about the music, but the last few seasons Idol has been about everything but the music.
So, I will not be posting about music much anymore. From time to time, I may write a music post; but for the most part, I will just write about whatever I feel like writing about. Politics, my garden, making wine, bread making, homesteading, going Galt – anything and everything is fair game.
Part of my disappointment springs from the albums put out by Taylor Hicks and Melody Gardot. I was looking for some great blues and neither delivered. So maybe when I find some new artists that can sing the blues, I will write a music post again.
For one last song, how about this blues harmonica – from a French woman no less.

Awe Melody, this is what I wanted on the CD!
