"Introducing a New Troll Meme: Overrated/Underrated
What: Any topic whatsoever that you believe is woefully overrated or underrated. People, places, things, ideas. It’s entirely up to you.
Where: Your own blog.
When: FIRST and THIRD Fridays of the month (Da Troll will post reminders).
Why: Because a scientific Troll Poll indicated people would enjoy having an organized format for their rants and raves.
How: Subject line of your post should be crafted thusly: Overrated Fridays: French Wines (or Underrated Fridays: Puffy Cheetos). Then, in 500 words or less, tell us why. Unlike Mute Mondays, you’ll need to use actual words, although feel free to post a photo or two if you want. When you’re finished, head over to Da Troll’s and post "I'm UP" in the comments section. Then visit other players to agree or disagree with their selections."
I have a multitude of underrated selections. For real, it will take me a year to post on under rated. But this week I chose Bo Bice. A "hometown boy", from the town in which I live, he was runner up to Carrie Underwood on American Idol, season 4. This guy is the real deal. He is genuinely talented. To stay true to the Bo Bice that people got to know through his musical selections on AI, he putted threw his promised Idol album which was largely controlled my "the man" and then went Indie so that he would not have to put out a manufactured sound but one that was truly Bice. He is currently looking to move back "home" to Helena and I couldn't be prouder. Yet he still is hitting the roads with his band giving listeners a joyful tune as he passes through.
His new album, "See the Light" is both a nod to the musical industry "man" (the title) and it is truly Bice that is featured in some incredible lyrics and musical riffs. To read more on the review I did for his most recent album, click here.
And so this week of under rated, my pic of the week- Bo Bice a raw, yet gentle ,spirited southern rocker. Real and undeniable.
