there's a strange juxtaposition within me. i will sit for hours behind a textbook or computer screen, deeply immersed in academic jargon and long words. and i really, really like seminars, especially if they deal with grammar and are held in the basement of a big, old hotel. i like novels and discussions and heavy things that make you think.
but goodness, sometimes i just love me a reality show. specifically american idol. and while this is quite embarrassing, but hey this is my blog and space for my own humiliation, i should tell you robert and i have discovered "good luck charlie" on the disney channel. and it is hilarious. and we may or may not have watched five episodes in a row this weekend.
well, last night, phillip phillips (i know, but look past the name) gave the best performance i've ever heard on american idol. he sang a song called "home" and i just have to share it. because yes, the show is cheesy and overproduced and maybe even a little rigged, but you find art in the most unexpected places sometimes. and this song, with its marching band segment and nods to mumford and sons, fleet foxes, paul simon and even a little wilco, was the most artistic thing to grace that stage in a long while.
so enjoy, and google "good luck charlie." you know you want to:)
