the death knell.

does anyone else ever die a little inside while watching rockstar:inxs? here's the thing. they represent humans, real humans, who all have the gift of song. the thing is though, their songs aren't gifts, they're travesties.

case #1 in point: jd fortune, someone from many of your home province, singing "we are the champions," a song that should never ever have been sung by anyone but freddie mercury. when he was alive.

case #2 in point: daphna dove, who looks like a frightening cross between penelope cruz and pocahontas, and whose father was "instrumental in discovering the scorpions," screeching her way through "rock the casbah." the shareef totally don't like it. and, thankfully, neither did the band, inxs.

case #3 in point, which has nothing to do with the songs, necessarily: dave navarro choking up when the band, inxs, announced that they were sending not one, but two rockers home, thereby setting a precedent that may or may not be upheld. in any case, dave navarro got choked up, and i really wanted pocahonelope and butterfly girl to be like, "y'all a bunch of lilypads."

As I just mentioned to you, as soon as Navarro started tearing up the SNL theme song to The Prince Show went through my head. Navarro = Fred Armisen's version of Prince.

I saw Rock Star for the first time last night. I'm a convert! I don't think Navarro whould have been nearly so choked up had the two rockers that were sent packing weren't hot girls. Deep down I think Dave knew they both didn't deserve to be on that stage, but Dave also really wanted to score with them and now he can't.
