Casting Call - The Next Great American Band

The producers of American Idol are on a new quest to find the next great American band! Audition by July 31, 2007 if you think your band has what it takes to rock out and win!

Next Great American Band - Calling All Bands

It's not just about solo acts anymore. Fox's newest reality show is searching for the best band in the country - all ages, all styles and all genres. So whether you're a rock band, pop band, punk band, or country band, they want you to audition! The show's judges will pick from thousands of hopefuls and narrow it down to just 10 of the most talented bands. Similar to American Idol, the semi-finalists will have to perform to different themes each week and viewers will vote on who stays and who goes home!

    Write an anonymous note. And tell him to put it somewhere that only you can get it back to see what he says.

    hey, i got a question, how would you get over a major mess-up, then try to act attractive, so you would still have a chance at maybe making a relationship with your crush.

    Ok, so how would you tell a crush you like them without them knowing it's you?

    I've been there when I was still in school. I don't personally have many friends now that I'm graduated, but that's more because the people here aren't worth being friends with. Off topic, my bad- Anyways, just try being a nice person. Sit with the other kid that's alone during lunch, find someone who needs someone to talk too, be open. I realize this can be difficult to do if you're shy, believe me, I've been there as well. Just remember that you need to stay yourself. I've lost friends because they turned out to be someone totally different than how they made themselves out to be. It's not worth it to pretend you're someone else. If it doesn't happen naturally after a little while, then you just have to keep in mind that it's your turn to put yourself out there. Remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I made a friend, that's pretty cool." But, also remember that, "hey, I put myself out there and I didn't make a friend, that's pretty okay too." If you put yourself out there and someone doesn't accept it, then that's okay. It just means they weren't meant to be your friend and someone else will come along much better for you.
