Vintage Teddy Card & American Idol ramblings..

Ei venninne av søstra mi bestillte et kort hos meg, og hun plukket selv ut stempler og farger hun ville ha på det, så hadde jeg moro med å male og få alt til å passe sammen ~ tror jeg har fått det maskulint nok til en voksen mann? :)

.. *Sukk* Jeg sitter her og kan knapt konsentrere meg om å blogge jeg... Blir rent mo i knærne av den stemmen til James Durbin! Fikk ei cd-plate i posten idag, fra Amazon ~ 'Memories of a beautiful disaster' debut plata, er super fornøyd med den ~ passer perfekt inn i min musikksmak! Har også Cd'n 'American Idol Season 10 highlights' ~ James var min topp favoritt ifjor, sammen med Paul McDonald og Lauren Aleina. Hør Paul's sang med kjæresten Nikki Reed på YouTube ~ Now that I've found you! Vakkert... Også Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams og Scotty McCreery (som vant), var favoritter.. og jeg kommer sikkert til å kjøpe musikk fra dem også etterhvert ~ Men James skulle absolutt ha vunnet! 

This is a card a friend of my sister comissioned ~ a boat, teddy and the other stamps shown was picked by her, as well as the color scheme, and I had free hands to put it all together! It was very fun to make it all match and I hope she will like it and her friend to receive it! :)

I'm supposed to blog about this card, but I keep getting sidetracked by the cd that's playing in the background, wich I got in the mail today. Check out DurbinRocks.com to listen for yourself! (music player) And getting a little sentimental I got stuck on YouTube for a while, searching & listening for old videos... James was my absolute fave in American Idol last year, so ofcourse I had to get his debut album Paul McDonald, Lauren Aleina, Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams & Scotty McCreery were also amazing, and I followed them all the way. Many hours spent watching Idol, oh yes!

Durbin's version of 'Uprising' on Am.Idol was even better than the original by Muse! And when he sang 'While my guitar gently weeps' it was beautiful!... I'll never forget it. (This video is when he was on Ellen show after voted off). Here he is in Metal Heaven together with Judas Priest!!!

My fave Paul song was Maggie May (Rod Stewart) & this new one where he sing with his girlfriend Nikki Reed 'Now that I've found you' just melt my heart completely...
Haley's 'House of the Rising Sun' & 'I who have nothing' (++)... AMAZING! I get chills .. Casey & Haley together on was Da Bomb! Check out this jazz duet they do 'Moaning' ~ all velvet and growls! Here is my fave Casey performances 'Harder to breathe' & 'Georgia on my mind' so much SOUL! And how cool is this duet with Jack Black!!! Fat bottom girls!
 Also listen to Laurens angel voice on 'Like my mother does' musicvideo wich she also did on Am.Idol. And her new song 'Georgia Peaches' from her debut! Scotty is the cutest, my mums top fave ofcourse, country all the way *lol* I love country too and he's just awesome in theese new musicvideos 'I love you this big' here & 'the trouble with girls'... but James still should've won in my opinion! ;) Well, I think that's just about enough ramblings on last years Idol.. just had to get it out there! And now I have a list of fave videos to go back and listen to whenever I want *lol*
