Catch Up on 2005

I bought the new Bright Eyes CD "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning" this is the folk one and so far as I'm listening to it, it's not bad. Now just so you know I didn't just jump on the Connor Oberest bandwagon, I've been into Bright Eyes for a few years now, I had songs from "A Collection of Songs". I'm not sure he's the genius some think he is, but compared to a lot of other young singers he's at least worth putting money on (and it was only $8.99!) It's funny though because I'm listening to him and my wife is watching American Idol. I'm sure Connor wouldn't even make it past the auditions on American Idol, yet he's a press darling and gets to sing on stage with REM. I don't buy into A.I., because I'd rather listen to an off key, not-so-good-loooking singer that writes his/her own songs with integrity. I think I'll buy "Digital Ash in a Digital Urn" tomorrow.
