Thursday evening, possibly coming down from hypomania

More American Idol links/discussion/Pips: I know, I know, you guys think the whole show's a crock, but--isn't this exactly what y'all complained should happen? Producers shoving their teen-friendly pick down America's throats, the fix appearing to be in, but then the nation rising up as one (or at least, 56% of it) and declaring, "HELL NO, WE WANT THE ONE WHO'S BEEN THROUGH PUBERTY"? Anyway, David Cook has always come off as a genuinely nice, decent, talented guy, and he's also the first Idol they've had, including Kelly Clarkson, whose album I would go out and buy right now without reservation. (I just really like his voice! Shut up!) Anyway, links: EW liveblogs the finale ("Oh no, Archie's going to be kept in the cellar tonight!"); EW has a few photos (Mike Myers' heinous Love Guru skit; that "I Am Your Brother" guy in the white hat; the moment I started shipping Blake and Jordin again; the Tropic Thunder guys pipping [video]; Carrie Underwood's massive unisleeve); David Cook's Guitar Hero commercial (now, I also saw one with David Archuleta as well. But his underwear was much more substantial). Also, from the NYT: Music: ‘Idol’ Finale: (Pop) Power to the People. "Stylistically he occupies the same broad pop-to-rock territory as Bryan Adams, one of several star guests at Wednesday’s finale, but Mr. Cook is a better singer." OKAY NOW LET'S NOT GET CRAZY HERE. Okay, maybe he is, but there's a thirteen-year-old girl circa 1992 inside me who is hurting right now.

sneaky_minx and I got to talking about Natascha McElhone's husband's death: "Just so wrong and sad. I was wondering if you'd be able to plug the charity he co-founded: Not necessarily for donations, but to give people an idea of the work he did."

lolathehated: "In a couple of weeks, June 1-7, I'll be riding my bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles. It's a seven day, 545 mile journey aimed at raising money to fight AIDS. The AIDS LifeCycle event benefits both the SF AIDS Foundation and the LA Gay and Lesbian Center, both of which are tied to Pangea Global AIDS Foundation which fights AIDS worldwide. There's still time to donate here: (yeah, that dorky picture is me). Even if you or your readers can't donate (and I know money is tight for many right now), leaving a message of support is great, too. Or even just visiting the page (I get to see how many times my page has been seen!). The deadline for donating is next Wednesday. NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL. I've gotten nearly $400 in just spare change."

Book buzz: Frey's 'Morning' after; Meyer's 'Host' is a big hit. "Next up: the Aug. 2 release of Breaking Dawn, fourth in the series. First printing: 2.5 million." I have absolutely no problem admitting here that I am insanely jealous. Speaking of which: Leaked: the preface to Breaking Dawn, and apparent first-chapter spoilers in which we discover that >>"Edward buys Bella a car as a wedding gift, Renee isn't bothered that Bella and Edward are getting married and Charlie blows up at Bella thinking she's marrying Edward because she's pregnant. And Seth and Edward are apparently.. friends?"<< See, I told you they would go out for beer.
