At 17, Jordin Sparks becomes the first American Idol winner forced to choose between college or going pro - or juggling the two. What will she do? And will the public do any hand-wringing over the choice the way it does for athletes?

Personally, it seems to me she'd have a great time in college and surely benefit, but I suppose you can only take advantage of so many opportunities at once.

I would go with career and have college as a fall back.

Do you go to college to prepare yourself as a valuable commodity, or do you go to college to become a more fully formed and well rounded individual?

For most people, I guess it's both. But I always considered college an important step in life. I hope she goes to college.

Hey SufferingBruin, I M N UR intertubes, reading all your music reviews.

As should have been expected, Mr. Bruin has excellent taste. Although, fine to say the Sam and Dave re-recordings aren't great, but were they really that good to begin with?

I read that James Gray's film was very, very well received at Cannes.

Awesome. Congrats to the family!

The IMDB recommends The Godfather II and The French Connection to people who like We Own the Night. Can't beat that.

4 - Actually, the reaction was strangely mixed. Got some negative reaction to Thursday's press screening, but Friday's actual premiere got an ovation. All I know is I thought it was good.

It couldn't have been too mixed. I didn't hear about the press screening, but it's in the mix for some hardware, right?
