Triumph of the Rossi Possi

I'm quite chuffed with the fact that Lukas Rossi won Rockstar: Supernova. He's been consistently great from the beginning. I guess being Canadian helps too, tapping into that tiny bit of national pride in me. That's two Canadians to win Rockstar in a row, proving beyond a doubt that Canada is full of people who don't give a shit 'bout no one and will rock your fucking face off.

One thing Canadians can't do, apparently, is competently manage a TV station. Global TV, whichs show Rockstar here in Ontario, screwed up big time by starting the show an hour late. They let it play for about half an hour, then suddenly flashed forward to the live show, skipping an hour of the most important part of the show. Oops. Well, at least we got the "reality episodes" on TV while the rest of the world had to watch them on the web.

But anyway, I look forward to Supernova's music. Lukas has enough personality and a unique enough voice to make a good frontman, and with the previous experience of the other three, the band is sure to be at least a moderate success. Dilana will probably put out some cool solo stuff too. I can't wait for next season. What I'd like to see is the House Band searching for their own singer and launching a career. Those guys are friggin' awesome at what they do. Probably as good if not better than the bands which have been the focus of the show.

On a completely seperate note, I'm still deciding on the iPod. Microsoft's Zune is rumoured to be coming out today, so I guess I'll wait and see if that's any good. I doubt it.

I was wondering what happened to the show last night. I thought my PVR screwed up or something.

I am very curious what Zune is going to be like.

Stupid fucking Global! But I hear they're rebroadcasting it tonight at some point.

I posted the same pic of Lukas the other day, SOOO glad we have yet another Toronto boy winning it all.

And GREAT idea about the house band for next season! Those guys are awesome and completely blow away Tommy, Jason and Gilby. Wow.

Happy weekend Phronk m'dear!

I'm the only other I person I know that uses the word "chuffed". My Brit parents rubbing off on me.

Hey, I'm reading "Invisible Monsters". Awesome. Thanks for the tip.

get an ipod. I got one for George for his birthday last week and he had fallen in love with me anew. you should hint at that to miss phronk.

Phronk said...

Yes chuffed means happy. See, people who speak REAL English like Shora know that.

I really should've used love to manipulate Ms. Phronk into getting it. You reading this, Ms. Phronk? Give me $400 please, or no more love.

I guess I love myself more now that I've bought myself an iPod. Self-esteem is good.

Can't stand people who think they're already famous when they're not.

I mean, it's Rockstar Supernova, not friggin' American Idol.
