Gluttons for punishment is what we are. And, to better serve you, the pre-show Roundtable hath returned at long last. As well as your link for tonight’s live blog which can be found below:

Click on that at 8p (or a little earlier) and enjoy the craptasticality of it all. In the meantime, hit the jump for a little ill-informed opinon and speculation… (more…)

YAY! I managed to get a Roundtable up this week afterall! You have no idea the amount of amazing one-liners and zingers that just sit in my inbox when I lack the ability to get one of these things up in time. If you watched last night’s performance show, then you probably have an idea of where we’re going with this. Especially if you tuned in for the liveblog.  The steaming cowpie awaits you… (more…)

Our show, which has sent many a psychoanalyist into a Freudian-tizzy about Oedipus complexes, is coming to a wrap with the Final Decisions. Will the Boys act like Men or will they give in to their mother’s wishes? And what stunt will Mrs. B pull out this time? Find out… after the jump.

Not Everyone Kisses the Cook Thursday, May 22, 2008

Posted by JB* in American Idol, beating the dead horse, Bloggers Gone Wild, hatchet jobs, JB*, reality TV, That was easy, Things That May Suspend Your Man License.

As was documented earlier, the excruciating torment fun is over on American Idol, and David Cook is your (well, someone’s) Champion.

While the feelings of the DeadOn Round Table were made clear, what are real fans saying? Well, I took a spin around the Innertubes so you don’t have to.


American Idol Roundtable – Top 7 Week Pre-Show Tuesday, April 15, 2008

Posted by Matt_T in Bloggers Gone Wild, jerkwheat, matt_T, maybe you should read a book instead, reality TV, singing?.

After last week’s exhausting 3 nights of Idol gives back and the (somewhat) surprising exit (That JB* totally called)  of Michael Johns we are left with 7 hopefuls.  Join me after the jump as we give our  pre-show thoughts on Mariah Carey week


American Idol Roundtable – Top 8 Week Recap Wednesday, April 9, 2008

Posted by Jerkwheat in American Idol, Bloggers Gone Wild, jerkwheat, more indepth than probably need-be, reality TV, Things too long to read.

Ok, so it wasn’t the treacly mess that I feared it would be. No one believed the children are the future, Jesus and gang pretty much hung out in the background, and there were a few honestly interesting song choices – I fully support anything that brings up the Hawaiian mountain of song that is Iz. Tonight is Idol Gives Back so there won’t be any eliminations tonight, but there might be some on Thursday. As always, our thoughts from last night (minus Matt_T, who was spared “inspiration night”) after the jump….

*ED NOTE – Sorry for the lack of YMR, it’s been a busy couple of days – I’ll give you two songs tomorrow, promise…

American Idol Roundtable – Top 9 Week Recap Wednesday, April 2, 2008

Posted by Jerkwheat in American Idol, Bloggers Gone Wild, I don't get out much, jerkwheat, music, TV.

So, to be perfectly honest with you, last night was not quite the trainwreck that I had envisioned it would be. I think most of the crew sang well, if not great. I’m having a hard time deciding who exactly deserves a one way ticket out of Hollywood tonight – thankfully, the rest of the crew has plenty to say about the matter of Dolly Parton Week….after the jump.

American Idol Roundtable – Top 11 Week…RECAP! Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Posted by Jerkwheat in American Idol, Bloggers Gone Wild, I don't get out much, jerkwheat, more indepth than probably need-be, TV.

Well gang, I found this week to be terribly dull and lacking in any really memorable performances. I was pretty happy to have started it an hour late so that I could fast-forward through all the non-performance parts – that’s really the way to go with this show. As always, the rest of the crew has plenty to say about this week’s show…to the jump!


All Roads Lead to DeadOn: Does the Fed adjust Schrutebuck interest rates? Tuesday, May 22, 2007

Posted by Will Li in Bloggers Gone Wild, BowdenBowdenBowden, Elric, hatchet jobs, Holy crap, making enemies of nice people, Search Strings, the office.

I thought her luck ran out after the Friends series finale.  This is not a Great Movie You May Have Missed.

It’s been an interested week here at DeadOn. On May 10th, someone with the Fark handle Erotic Tangerines linked DeadOn’s running feature “The 20 Most Cromulent Simpsons Episodes of All Time: #15” in a Fark thread, which got us some nice traffic. Thank you, Erotic Tangerines, and may your sensual citrus-ness be blessed with eternal succulence.

That said, a couple of salacious searches aside, our traffic the past couple days has been dominated by two denominations. Follow me after the jump for some leprechaun to unicorn conversion rates.

What a weekend – thanks to everyone who showed up at the DC Shadow Pants Party on Friday night! I was great meeting you all and a good time was had for certain. Especially afterwards. I’m still feeling the effects of that. Let’s do it again soon shall we? Time for Your Morning Rock.


Looks like the Midwest Pants Party was successful, no?

We Got Drunk With Deadspin… Thursday, March 8, 2007

Posted by stopmikelupica in Bloggers Gone Wild, SML, Stopmikelupica.

… and a bunch of other bloggers.

Last night, at a bar in Chinatown (NYC) some of the most well-known sports bloggers showed up and greeted their fans.  SML and his crew were there, with the goal of capturing pictures, talking to Will Leitch, and maybe getting him to come out to karaoke (there’s a bar nearby that’s good for karaoke).  After the jump are blurry pictures, drunk opinions and the real reason Deadspin seems slow today….
