Old friends.

It’s like being haunted by a ghost. Not creepy at all. Just ironic. I have an old friend that I’m now kind of estranged with who simply loves (actually LOVE isn’t a strong enough word) Jeff Buckley’s version of “Hallelujah.” That song has now received a resurgence of popularity by American Idol contestant Jason Castro, who just so happens to be from a community we cover at work. Did I say cover? I mean attack at all angles gorilla style— video, blogs, stories, photos…it’s crazy. But obviously entertaining as well. However I can’t help thinking how small the world is. Here is this kid, who we covered almost a year ago at a Battle of the Bands contest, and is now in the Top 12 on American Idol AND climbing the iTunes charts with my childhood friend’s song.
