so i've really been wanting to blog about a million trillion things. especially trudy's birthday, but i can't force myself to blog when i don't want to, when i want to put time into a post i've got to be in the mood. szzsshuuuuu know? plus i wanted to move the last post down because the green paint on that stand just looks so off and it's been bugging me. so i'm taking a quick second to post the announcement of the american idol winner. i know that america was watching when it was live but i feel like it all was so memorable and i love watching it over and over. i was a fan of phillip from the beginning, he is so authentic and true to himself. i laughed so hard when he responded to ryan about some criticism earlier in the show from Jimmy, "No, I'm just being myself, dude. I'm not trying to walk around stage and touch people's hands and stuff. That's just not me. I'm just having fun, man. I'm not trying to be somebody else. I"m just trying to play music."
so my favorite parts in the clip, you can tell that when ryan announces his name, for the first few minutes... it hasn't really hit him. i think he is just going through the motions...(yay!! woohoo!! from everyone, blah blah). then ryan addresses him again, telling him congratulations and phillip just looks away and shakes his head. que the music (pry the best song choice by the way, definitely my favorite winner winning song)..... and then as he starts singing it seems as though he is completely overcome by it all, when the confetti starts falling i feel like it's all so magical. i know that i'm a nerd but i don't care. when he decides he's had enough, i really love how he doesn't follow any rule or expectation, just hands his guitar over, walks off the stage and hugs his family. i just love it!
