yanadvs asked: Hey Jim. I'm one of your biggest glee cap fans... Why don't you do glee caps anymore?
Thanks so much for being a fan! You guys are the best. I miss the Gleeks. I don’t miss “Glee,” though. Eep. That’s one reason why I stopped doing them. The show just lost me. No disrespect to the talented cast or crew. Also, and mostly, it just took too much time. I’m not a *real* songwriter so eventually I ran out of tricks. Almost 40 original songs about one show in 2 years? Not bad. But why force it? And story-wise, I thought going out on the Klaine break-up made sense.
But thanks again for being a fan all this time! You can still watch and sing along to the old ones. (They’re on iTunes and Spotify too, if you’re, like, REALLY into them.) And if you miss me being goofy on the internet, I’m still making plenty o’vids on my YouTube channel. (Check out SMASHed. You don’t even have to be a Smash viewer to get it.)
My latest IDOL IN A MINUTE is conceptual. Buckle up!
And here’s a BONUS Idol in a Minute recap, sort of like a b-side to the main event, all about Nicki being late to “Idol.” Also conceptual.
When it comes to pop careers, the stars of Smash are moths to a flame. And that flame happens to be beige chairs, beige rooms, skinny font and an attention to legs.
Speaking of Smash, SMASHed:

Is this the new Vampire Weekend album cover? (I hope so.)
