After quietly dumping Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip off the PVR (you had your chance, Aaron Sorkin), I’m afraid I may be inadvertantly making a commitment to American Idol.
Tonight, a new guy showed up and told Randy and Simon his reason for wanting to be the next American Idol: he wanted to make David Hasselhoff cry. Then he did his audition and was pretty good and is going on to Hollywood. He also has two blogs: this one here and this other one, about his AI adventure. He loves Ben Folds, Celine Dion, and Jesus Christ. Interesting guy.
I didn’t mean to get into the show but damn it, those crafty editors are going for “stories” and “character arcs” this time.
