Discussion

Seriously, this band is really great! They have a really long history and play entertaining shows!
Whenever I hear about a new band or story about a band, I get super excited and feel like I should tell all of my friends. Do you do that too? It’s so much fun to get together and talk about what’s new and up-and-coming.
See you later!

I’m watching right now American Idol. It’s a nice show. We used to talk about it with my friend about up-and-coming canditates when it was close to finale. We were sort of super excited about the show. Some of the singers are outstanding and fabulous, some are just lots of fun to watch.
