american idol is getting a new judge

Not sure how i feel about this, but we'll see what happens. American Idol is getting a new judge this season which starts in January. I think it's just a way to keep it fresh this year, since the format hasn't been shaken up too much lately. We'll see what happens. Read the article.

This sounds like it could be a fun idea for an animated series. I'd check it out. Right now, it's just an idea. It was leaked on youtube a few weeks ago. HMM.... Maybe Joss Whedon is thinking more about it or it's just a dead project so they figured why not show everyone what it was. This was apparently a pilot that was shown to industry execs a few years ago, but they all passed.

star sightings at work this week

This isn't a normal occurrence for me even though I work and live in Burbank, CA. Spotted a few stars having meetings at my work building.

Rode the elevator with Finola Hughes.

Saw Brian McKnight in the lobby. I was wondering what he was doing there. Maybe he's composing a theme song for a new Disney Channel show. Who knows!

I also think I saw Lucas Grabeel of High School Musical fame, having coffee at our Starbucks, but I can't be 100% positive.

And it's only Tuesday. I didn't stop to talk with anyone. I don't like to be bothered at work, so I figured that they wouldn't want to be bothered either. later
