Since prophets love award shows too, this one will be rocking it with all kinds of GRAMMY commentary tonight!  See you then!

Youth leaders everywhere lost one future option for lock-in entertainment when Activision announced the end of their Guitar Hero video game series yesterday.  For years Guitar Hero has provided something else for teenagers to put their hormonal hands on besides each other.

While some may see this as a chance for teenagers to actually learn how to play a real guitar, forward thinking youth leaders have already made the extra room in their budgets for a full Rock Band.

The devout, however, only have one real option:

When I watch American Idol I tend to lose the ability to have coherent thoughts, so here is some stream of consciousness AI commentary!
-My prophetic voice tells me that thus far it is Casey Abrams vs. James Durbin for American Idol.  Abrams has a great southern sound, while Durbin is perhaps the second coming of Adam Lambert.-As an ugly fella myself I think it is okay if I ask this: Is it just me or are there a lot of ugly fellas on Idol this year?  I did just get an HDTV so that may have something to do with it, but I really think the inclusion of the now alien-looking Steven Tyler made a huge impact on encouraging the guys to try out.

-The show is a good bit softer this year without Simon Cowell.  I don’t believe for a minute that he would have let anyone through who sang the same song twice.  I agree with him too – what a cop out!

For all the doubt surrounding the new Idol judges and the drop in number of viewers, the talent for this season seems as strong as ever!  It will be interesting to see who makes the final 12.

If you thought Eminem sold out by appearing in two commercials during the Super Bowl, then get a load of this.  With just a simple click of the “like” button you can watch Weezer slog through a poorly performed extended version of the State Farm jingle.  I’m not even kidding!  Be sure to “unlike” the page afterward, or else State Farm will actually think this was a good idea.

This is not surprising coming from the band whose fans offered to raise 10 million dollars so they would break up, but come on!
