(American Idol Top 2) Why Phillip Phillips May Lose and Still Win. @PPhillipsAI11

popout: Phillip Phillips Performs Home

So, who’s going to win American Idol Season 11?

I don’t think it matters really. I think that Phillip Phillips can lose this, and end up selling way more of his (Mumford & Sons / Coldplay -sounding) debut single ‘HOME‘ than Jessica Sanchez (what with that mediocre ballad ‘Change Nothing‘ she was saddled with). Mark my words, he’ll be up there in the iTunes charts, and it won’t just be his infatuated fans buying.

HOME‘ may not be an original song by Phillip, but it might as well be. Emotionally, he got it and delivered it – with intact melody! Hate to parrot Steven Tyler, but that was beautiful (minus the marching-band drummers though!) Speaking as someone who hasn’t liked ANY of Phillips’ performances (given the way he seems to have an aversion to sticking to the melody), I’m actually going to voluntarily buy this single on iTunes! You’re welcome Phillip.

HOME‘ may yet be the best ‘coronation’ song that AI has given any of their finalists so far IMO. Most of the time, they just blow (see exhibit 1: No Boundaries)

Hopefully, Jessica Sanchez gets a good A&R manager who can help her put together a good album – she’s got an amazeballs voice and no one can take that away from her.

(Video) Official Trailer for The Great Gatsby! (Stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan)

popout: The Great Gatsby

Oh, wow – what a super visually appealing trailer for Mr Baz Luhrmann’s epic adaptation of the classic ‘The Great Gatsby‘! Loved all the art deco elements. And this is supposed to all 3D right? And Carrey Mulligan looks amazing as Daisy!

Now I’m gonna have to go back and re-read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby (because I’m pretty sure I sorta maybe half-assed it way back when). Classics / Great American Novels were not my thing back in HS.

The Great Gatsby

Here’s a description of the book (but you can check out the full plot on Wiki):

The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s third book, stands as the supreme achievement of his career. This exemplary novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.

The Great Gatsby is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Carey Mulligan, Isla Fisher, Jason Clarke, Elizabeth Debicki, and Amitabh Bachchan, The Great Gatsby will be in theaters this Christmas.
