What’d I Tell Ya, Huh!?

Just a quick hit from TV Land.

So far everything’s going how I envisioned it on American Idol. Last night Seacrest drops that 35 million people voted, up two mil from last week (which was up three mil from the week before) just as I predicted it would be. Next, Sanjaya — who made a great song choice Tuesday and turned in a performance even his mediocre talents couldn’t destroy — wasn’t even in the bottom three, just as I said he wouldn’t be. And who was in that dreaded category: exactly who I said would get gone before Sanjaya: Haley, Phil and Chris.

Chris was safe, which I figured he’d be. But I’ll admit I was surprised that Haley got the hook before Phil. I thought her eye-candy factor would offset her Kathy Lee Gifford talent and keep her around longer than the Batboy.

Oh well, he’ll go next week.

Who dah man? I’m dah man.

Am I obsessed? Oh yes.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
