Jams of the Week

Idol Jam: Kree Harrison

I'm having a hard time getting enthused about any of the Idol contestants so far, but Kree's performance this week gave me chills. American Idol is totally my guilty pleasure!

Dangerous Addiction Jam: Berry Burst Oreos
I bought these for Valentine's Day Wine Club and kinda can't get them out of my head. I have always shied away from different flavors of Oreos — why mess with a good thing? — but I kinda loved these. Obviously, it can't be more than an occasional indulgence, though!

Brit Jam: Alt-J (∆)

I have this running list in my mind of bands I've been meaning to check out. For whatever reason, I only took the time last week to look into Alt-J, a British band that was getting a LOT of attention last year, including winning the Mercury Prize. I don't feel like there's another band I could even compare them to, but I love their unique musicality, especially when they use toy piano!

Netflix Jam: "Chronicle"

Sean and I finally watched "Chronicle" on Netflix last weekend and it was really staggering. I've gotten pretty weary of superhero movies and this one took the whole concept and turned it upside down. I also loved that, because it was such a small independent movie, it was just low-fi enough to not seem completely fake. It also featured my "Friday Night Lights" jam, Michael B. Jordan!

I agree with Oreo's. Why mess with a good thing?!?! I don't know if I'd have the courage to try those!

For the record, Paul Jolley is MY guilty pleasure on Idol. His are crazy sparkly!
