Any comments/thoughts?

    Actually my wife and I have met Steven Tyler and the rest of Aerosmith several times on stage, back stage both before and after shows and they are very wheelchair friendly. Someone in the band I believe it's Tom Hamilton has a relative in a chair so they get it. As you saw in that episode of American Idol Steven Tyler was truly concerned and more than happy to greet that woman in the chair. I do think that contestant had a good voice and good enough to move on to LA despite his the background story.

    Darty,
    First off, cool pic . Secondly, I completely agree!! I thought the contestant did a fantastic job. Mind you, I didn't see the competition so I don't know who was better then who or what not but from what I saw of his audition he absolutely had/has potential!

    Not meaning to be mean Becky but you still live at home with your mom and from your other posts here you are letting life pass you by... I have listened to you sing on youtube and you sing just as well as he does.

    Take some chances and get out and live is all I am trying to say....It starts with leaving your comfort zone that includes mom. You have lots of potential. You can do anything you want. Just make a plan and follow through...

    Truly did not mean for my post to start a shit storm but you asked.

    DD- I asked because I was/am interested for the answer. Thanks for providing one. I do disagree with you however! Yes I do still live with my parents. Yes I know that many here and others live on their own and that's fantastic. I have chosen to stay with my parents so that I don't have to worry about finding a place, getting acquainted to living on my own, and finishing up undergrad and grad school. I graduate from undergrad next may and then two years of grad school and I'll be done with school and can get myself a job which will hopefully bring in more money so that I can get myself a place. My mother/family is by no means my comfort zone. They are a necessity at this point if I am going to be successful in completing school.

    As you can see, I have/have had a plan. Some plans take years to complete though! I guess everybody's idea of letting life pass you by is different.

    Again, thanks for answering my question.

    I'd hate for them to criticize you ... you're a sensitive soul.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Thanks for your concern! I had thought about that too and actually I think that if I am going to audition for other companies when Im done with school why not just go for it !
