American Idol

so i think i’m almost up to date on this season…. and damn- there is such an incredible amount of talent in this cast. but first let me start with the judges- i love the vibe this season- they actually treat the kids like peers- i loved simon cowell- but i much prefer this whole new dynamic. nice to see the judges rooting for the kids instead of tearing them down. I am now a huge J-LO fan- she’s so sweet and supportive and all around awesome. now onto the kids- i keep waiting for phil phillips to shine- he’s so damn cute i can’t help but root for him…. but damn- i hope he sets it off again soon. still in the middle of watching the final cut episode- so i will get back to him- now onto joshua leday- this kid is a monster- i love his voice… oh phew he made it…. can’t wait to see more from him. i guess this episode is cool to meet some of the kids who haven’t been given a chance to shine as of yet- i like this little michael jackson kid- nico star… no idea how to spell it.oh- now they’re showing the kids who crashed and burned…. yikes- i hate this part. ok- a few more a through- they sure do love to torture these kids…. yes or no- why drag it out? some of these young kids are spectacular- can’t believe i didn’t pay attention last year- was it any good? yay phil made it through! love this kid colton- kinda don’t believe the whole “i’m just here to support” audition- but he does have flavour and seems honest- phew- it would have been brutal if he got cut again…. love how proud his little sister is- bittersweet- onto brielle- i hope she makes it through- coz i feel bad for her to have to go home to that stage mother of hers. ok- gotta get on with my day- i feel like this is gonna be a good season!! can’t wait to see what happens next!

Did you guys know that u can listen to my music on Xbox 360 thru the Zune marketplace? I didn’t. Was just looking around and found it. That’s pretty cool, huh? Well- to me it is. Crazy to think that this time last year I was just writing and messing around in the studio- shit- it wasn’t so long ago that I was wondering if it would ever even see te light of day. Doing this by myself seemed like such an incredibly daunting task- and well- I was right. It’s sooooo much work and on top of that all the traveling to Dj to pay for everything is exhausting- but I’m not even close to complaining- because I know how lucky I am to be able to do what I love day and night. And I’m lucky to have people like you supporting me. Because believe me- I can’t do it without you! So thank you. And please spread the word so I can raise enough money to go on the road and play this stuff for you live! Ok. Back to work- ok- well a little call of duty (black ops) first! Coz- if I didn’t play I would never have known about this outlet!
