A Pocket Full of Murder

GIP!

Because I want Ryan to win Canadian Idol. He's got a great voice (even though it's hard to pin down exactly what his voice sounds like, since he tends to mimic whoever's songs he's singing -- but that just endears him to me, since I do the same thing), he seems to have a polite, modest attitude and doesn't always try to grab centre stage (very Canadian of him), he looks like a cross between the young Elvis Costello and a noodle, and he always seems to pick songs I like and deliver them in a very professional fashion. Furthermore, he makes great hurl face on Results Night when he's wondering if he's going to get the axe or not. What's not to like?

Oh, and because he used to be a waiter and went to the same high school as Avril Lavigne, the Canadian media has taken to calling him "W8r Boi". Hee!

ETA: And speaking of endearingly geeky musical talents, thanks to Laura and shellebelle for tipping me off to the good news about Steve Burns' new album. I think Blue would approve.
