Really?

Okay, I don't comment much on pop culture, mainly because I like to share my nerdiness discreetly, but I have to say something about American Idol. I watched the video of Adam's cover of Mad World. Not even guys. Gary Jules' cover from the movie Donnie Darko is even better than the Tears for Fears original. Don't even get me started on Donnie Darko, I just love a time-traveling teen movie that thumbs it's nose at the status quo.



And speaking of showing off my nerdy side, I took some pictures of myself the other day. I need a new photo for publications. I may have Jess try to take a better shot this weekend. The photo that currently runs in the magazines is about 5 years old. Time for an update!

"REALLY?" ha ha ha! :)

Video was so cool! I caught the end of Adam singing that on AI, and I thought it was terrible.
I love that show. I need to start watching it again.

I like that pic of you in this post. Nice!

Some years I'm into AI, others not so much. We always watch the auditions though. This year I don't even know who they are. I just had to hear the performance that simon would giving a standing o. And again, REALLY?

I totally agree! I don't watch AI anymore, but I did find check it out because I love that song and no. Just no. I agree with you on the Donnie Darko version, and the movie in general. Love it.

How'd I miss that movie? It looks like a strange one. Loved the song. Your right AI version was wrong, but at the time I saw it I hadn't heard the original...thank you Ytube, and I thought it was Adam was very good...its the artists interpertation right? Not everyone has to agree. You ARE a nerdy girl. When you get to be my age its called excentric..hahaha...

Heather,

Yes, REALLY! Adam is a spectacular performer. He is going to win AI this year by a mile. I also love the Gary Jules version of Mad World, btw.

yours in polymer clay,
