Entering into the American Idol Soul Patrol forum on a Monday, you can almost HEAR sound emitting right from the typeface. Audio keystrokes if you will. Audible two dimensional font. The board posts start their rolling to the point its impossible to keep up with topics, they change so rapidly - that Soul Patrol Train, train justa keepa rollin all night long....
By TuesTay a.m., the rolling boards will be steaming out the posts and the VOTE VOTE VOTE chant starts - Soul Train keepa rollin all night long...
By TuesTay afternoon, the boards become one long single-minded track, steaming Hicks up the Idol tracks!!!
Countdown to showtime begins in earnest around 5:00 p.m. CST waiting for "Taylor's Show" to begin, ladies and gents counting down EST and CST (PST just dreaming about when they can watch Hicks....so close and yet so far.) The boards head to a roiling boil, and you see topics posting with just...
WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Soon that post has over 200 hits all just typing WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
It's amazing, exciting, hard-core fanhood at its finest and Taylor Hicks, just being Taylor Hicks is to blame for this fun insanity. It's a wild exciting ride on the A.I. Boards, one I look forward to weekly - hell there have been TuesTays I should be at work - but for the grace of having my own hours - I've spent the better part of the day riding the Idol Board SOOOUL Patrol Train - it's more fun than the double looping roller coaster at Six Flags when it is at its roiling best.
There are "stars" of the board that make it and maintain the drive. I will be listing all these dedicated Hicks fan-a-tics on a later post. I love them for their enthusiasm, drive and the WOOOOO! WOOOOO!'s
I love riding the SOOUL Patrol Train!
Got my ticket on the train for tomorrow's ride...do you?
Happy TuesTay Eve!!!
Groove on Soulman!
