Gosh. It’s been dead news days in terms of “Idol” lately. I’m groping around for something to write.

I’m down to mentioning a reality show concept with will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas and Simon Cowell: seeking the next Steve Jobs, sort of an “X Factor for Tech.” The singer mentioned this to the U.K. Sun. Not sure how that would work, per se.

- On “The X Factor” last week, we had one Atlanta contestant, a music coach named Tara Simon. She came off a bit arrogant back stage but didn’t do too badly on stage. She’s going to be in boot camp. There is a spoiler page on MJ if you want to see if she made it through.

- Jason Aldean, who is married, apologizes for kissing some former “Idol” contestant I don’t even remember.

- Adorable, nearly bald Kellie Pickler co-hosts with Anderson Cooper:

Also, you could find shows by either “TV Show” or by “Network”, with lots of different choices on each one, now it’s only by “TV Show”.

Sam re Comcast…they’ve just moved all the tv choices to a general category called TV Shows. You search by the name of the show, not the network it is on.

Re Gangnam Style…they play it at Braves games then film people dancing. Awesome!

New thread up…I’ll be y’all know what it’s about. ;-)
