Fretful for the future of If I Can Dream… lots of strange rumors and murmurings floating around these days.
The good news is that none of this seems to be affecting Alex. “I Didn’t Know” is getting a TON of positive media attention (yay!) and he’s been out at writing sessions every day this week. Which, though we may miss seeing him around, is a good thing. Because with every writing session he comes closer to having enough good songs for his album. Which means he’s a step closer to being able to leave the Dream House. Which, these days (with phrases like “sinking ship” being bandied about), can’t come soon enough.
What do you all think? Has ‘If I Can Dream’ entered a downward spiral? Will they be able to pull things back together? Or are they just experiencing a summer lull? And most importantly, will this affect Alex, or has he gone beyond the stage where it matters how the show does?
One bit of good news for those of you impatiently waiting: Alex recorded a vlog this morning! Keep an eye out, we’ll post it here the minute it comes out (or we’ll do our darndest to lol).
Also, Merlin Castell (the kooky fashion designer whose visit was cancelled last week) will be making over the cast’s closet today, Friday, at 2 pm. No word on whether Alex will be back for that (though somehow I doubt it given he left the house for a session just after at 11 am).
UPDATE: Alex indeed didn’t return in time for Castell’s visit – probably a good thing as Castell flipped out about Alex’s clothes being on the floor.
Also based on a tweet from Eddie R Sanchez, his session today is with the TJ Scarlett Band (http://www.myspace.com/tjscarlett), Eddie and Marcus Sanchez (http://www.linkedin.com/in/marcuswsanchez), and the Avila brothers (http://www.myspace.com/avilabrothers). (Thanks to Katherine for sniffing it out!)
VLOG!!!! (Thanks Cathy!)
