Early in the Morning, I'm Callin' YouTube, Vol. IX
Ever wonder what Danny Devito playing the air guitar looks like? Wonder no longer!
I was never a big fan of Heath Ledger. While I'm anxiously waiting to see how he fares as the Joker in The Dark Knight, I don't much care for a lot of his old work: A Knight's Tale is rather terrible, Brokeback Mountain is horribly overrated and his Bob Dylan in I'm Not There is decent, but nothing special. Frankly, the role I most associate him with is Patrick Verona in 10 Things I Hate About You. Not the greatest movie in the world, but one that features a memorable scene of Heath singing "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You."
While home, I watched the first two episodes of American Idol, which will probably be the only two episodes of Idol I watch this year. Fortunately, I was lucky enough to hear the original song, "I Am Your Brother" by Renaldo Lapuz. Basically, Renaldo came into the studio looking like a homeless pimp, and sang his song to Simon about how they're brothers. It's one of the greatest Idol moments of all-time, right up there with Clay Aiken's performance of "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me."
But now for some good music: "Maybellene" by Chuck Berry
