Tom Cruise

I can’t stand Tom Cruise!!! He has become so annoyingly freaky. And no, I’m not just saying this because of the whole Katie Holmes-jumping-up-on-the-couch-tell-the-whole-world-I’m-in-love ordeal… My annoyance with him started way back in his “Vanilla Sky” days. He was only slightly annoying back then. He is the anti-thesis of an actor. He’s no actor; he’s a celebrity. There is a difference. And now he’s a freak. An attention junkie.

If I were him, I’d retire from the “biz” right now, while he’s got his new baby and he’s still kind of normal. I’m afraid if he continues to be in the spotlight, he will become the next Michael Jackson.

Just got hold of a new blogging platform called Performancing, a new extension for Mozilla Firefox. You gotta love Mozilla and the community behind it. Let's see if this works…

American Idol

Okay. I don't normally watch a lot of TV, especially reality TV, but I am really enjoying the current installment of American Idol. It's hard to say who will win the title because it is one of the most talented group of finalists ever in any Idol competition. My favorite is Taylor Hicks because he is just so unique, but I think Katherine McPhee has the complete package – great voice, good looks, and charm. She will be able to sell records, but Taylor Hicks will be more original. Elliott Yamin has a great voice, and who knows, he may come in from behind and just take everything. The final showdown will be a must-watch.

Who's your pick?
