She was told two years ago that she made it to Hollywood, but missed the age deadline by a month. Now, the age restriction is lifted, so she has another shot.

We'll see.

Her site:

www.bluemarbleproductions.com

She hates the songs on there because she had a cold and sang a little flat...

Oh, and it hasn't been updated in a couple of years, so the engagements are all old.

Why would she subject herself to that kind of torture?

Becaue she is not getting any younger and there is no other way for her to get into the industry. We have tried everything else.

I hope it works out.

My wife is very cool.

That being said, we both have some misgivings about going this route. However, I want her to at least have a shot at it.

What's worse--to look back in your life and say "Gee, I wish I hadn't sung that stupid pop song on American Idol!" or "Gee, I wish I would have just tried."?

I don't know.

Good luck to her...
Link Posted: 7/16/2004 11:00:52 PM EST
Thanks.

I just heard that some of the contestants on this show were totally crushed after the beating that they got. I'm not saying this is the case for your wife, but this industry is mercilous...Really, good luck to her. I hope she makes it.

The second one. Just like my little box business. I have no formal training and have never done anything like this before. Will it fail? Maybe...but I at least I am tring.


Good luck to her, if nothing else it WILL give her exposure and get her used to crowds.

Link Posted: 7/16/2004 11:28:27 PM EST
Well, I think it would be worth a shot. Several of the people on that show who didn't even win have been given contracts. So the exposure alone would be worth it. The people who perform on AI become household names in this reality tv society we are living in. So I say make an attempt to cash in on it! Good luck to her.

Oh, and be sure to have her tell that arrogant ass Simon fella to kiss her ass if he tries to shoot her down!

Keep us updated. If she gets on, I'll actually watch the show and have someone to pull for.

I like her song, "tempting....", very nice!!!

Personally, I think your wife is far too classy to appeal to the morons on American Idol. Just my opinion.

You should update the live performance calendar portion on your website too.
Link Posted: 7/17/2004 8:23:52 AM EST
Thanks, everyone.

Actually, I had a guaranteed spot at the LA auditions, not Hollywood. But, whatever. Either way, AI is pretty much against every fiber of my musical being. The cheesy product-placement commercials, the melisma, etc. I like to be playing an instrument and attempting to sing my own songs. I would be more likely to try to go the indie route, but what are my chances then? My biggest concern is that if I go on there and do well, no serious musicians will take me seriously. I might not take me seriously!

But, it is a great opportunity to get yourself out there for the world to see. Of course, it's a double-eged sword, because if they hate you, then is your possibility at a career screwed? I don't really consider myself the AI type, but can I make it in a situation like that, despite my misgivings?

I don't know. Guess we'll see!

Again, thanks for the support.

What about Star Search? Although its hosted by that square headed flunky, isn't this where Alanis Morissette started and got a break from? None of the "idols" that rolled out of AI were any good in my opinion. Except maybe that last one, if she plays her cards right.
Link Posted: 7/17/2004 8:46:44 AM EST
Tell her good luck and if she makes it, give that assclown Simon a hellacious kick in whatever balls he has left.

You evidently didn't hear her at the MLB Allstar Game! Didn't even know the words to the National Anthem!

WTF??? Who are you to judge her ring?? I mean, it looks fine to me and I'm sure she likes it just fine, that is why she has it on. Dude, you have some jealousy issues here I think.

She has been to a couple FALFILES shoots, she also shoots IDPA once in a while...

She also sings every weekend at Central Christian Church in Mesa. (the big one w/ about 12K attendees, not the little one).

She sang at the huge 4th of july fireworks show...40K people there, you might have seen it. Or...several cofee shops in town, or stealing the "purse" at karaoke...etc.

No words or logos allowed...but she can give a shout out to "arf"...

You make some very valid points.

good luck, id suggest sending demos to record labels etc. Most people that I've seen on American Idol seem to be people with nothing recorded, just people who think they can sing in the shower
