THE QAL TOUR: A TO Z

The US leg of the Queen + Adam Lambert tour has now come to a close, and even though it is all still pretty fresh in our minds, let’s take a short walk down memory lane with a brief A to Z recap of this leg of the “Once in A Lifetime” tour. Thanks to @melirose89 who assisted me with this post and all the lovely photogs, videographers and gif makers out in fandom and beyond (credited pics if I knew the source)

YES THE SITE IS ALIVE: MY NYC QAL TRIP

Well I don’t know if anyone noticed really but I took a wee sabbatical from blogging for a bit just to rest my creative juices before era 3 and to just enjoy the QAL tour without having to worry about posting picture after picture and video after video. That’s the kind of shit that makes stanning feel like work and no thank you!! I needed a break!

BUT NOW I AM BACK. FEELING RESTED AND REPLENISHED. ARE YOU EXCITED?

I….I am gonna take that as a yes.

So many things have happened since I last blogged. Adam has ditched the blonde hair color. He grew more melvin, then he got rid of most of it, and then grew it back again. We found out he has a little bit of Tina Turner in him..

And that he’s the kind of guy who spits not swallows…

That he likes to sass his elders..

WE FOUND OUT THAT ADUFUS IS REAL!!!

But more importantly that Couchbert is the new Floorbert…

But most importantly we found out that whether he was playing a sold out Forum in LA or a sold out Madison Square Garden in NYC he

WAS A FUCKING CHAMPION IN A FUCKING GOLD GLITTERY CROWN!!!!!

Now a little more about Madison Square Garden. I was privileged enough to witness it in person and it was AMAZING. I had never truly understood why that venue was the Holy Grail of venues for a musical artist to play, and maybe I still don’t fully understand, but I have to say that from the minute I walked into the arena and down the stairs to my seat I was overcome with a massive indescribable feeling. You know when a place just has a presence? A history? That’s what I felt.

Or maybe what I felt was the Irish ale and two shots of Jameson I had at the Irish pub minutes earlier??

That’s my hand right there. Aren’t my chubby little fingers sexay? And that’s my phone…that’s where the MAGIC happens people!!!

Did I mention my seats were amazing?

 I managed to end up in Glambert-ville with berts to the right and to the left and like half of my feed a stone throws away from me. It was so nice to put some faces to screen names and everyone I met was super nice. I am SO GLAD no one asked me for my glambert number like someone did to Loha in Las Vegas…LOL. I really don’t know how I would have handled that. Laughed in their face? Tell them it was 666 with crazy eyes and see how they reacted? Not sure.

I wish I could fully encapsulate with words how amazing the concert was but all I can think of to say is that listening to Youtube videos or a stream does NOT do justice to his voice, Brian’s guitar, Roger’s drumming, and any of the other elements that fused together to form such a perfect live experience. It is something that, while good on video, is UNREAL live, in the moment and surrounded by the energy from thousands of fans. There is just no comparison. I was fortunate enough to see one of the UK Hammersmith shows and while that was great, this show far surpassed that for me. The energy, the set, the production value, BRIAN’S NEVER ENDING GUITAR SOLO, the lady in front of me wearing Christmas garland as a scarf (I am on to you lady), the straight guy next to me dancing the standard dorky white man dance the whole show, the beach balls passing through the crowd. Amazing.

AND WHO WANTS TO LIVE FOREVER SLAYED MY LIFE. LIKE IT KILLED ME DEAD AND THEN RESURRECTED ME AND THEN KILLED ME AGAIN THAT’S HOW AMAZING IT WAS.

It was so good that even the younger guy in front of me, who looked like he had maybe come with his parents and was kinda blase about the whole experience so far, whipped out his phone and started filming when Adam started slaying those notes. It gave me chills. SRSLY. And let’s not forget all of MSG (well I am gonna ignore the small section directly opposite me on the other side of the arena. I am going to assume their arms were simply tired from batting around all those beach balls.) doing the Radio Gaga clap like it should be done. It was beautiful.

Oh and I also got a pretty cool shirt.

Overall it was a SUPER AMAZING experience and it will be something I will fap over for all of eternity.

NOW BRING ON ERA THREE BITCHES!!!!!!!

ADAM LAMBERT: IT’S NOT EASY BEING GREEN. OR FINDING SOCKS.

In a show of solidarity with all the Florida flood victims this week, Adam brought out these pants to the I Heart Radio Awards:

award1

I kid, I kid. Apparently flood pants are in style with the menfolk. As long as they don’t start french rolling them like we did in the eighth grade, I can deal.

DID I MENTION HE LOOKS AMAZING?!?!?!

And he also brought along his face which was a good choice for a red carpet accessory:

award2

CAN A SISTA GET A MOTHER FUCKING SLOW CLAP GIF UP IN HERE?!?!

Thank you. Cause damn boy looks flawless! The hair color, the facial scruff, the suit color. He looks even younger which is impossible since he looked super young to begin with so I am guessing he’s gonna start getting carded again at the bars. Or at least when he rents a car.

Here’s Adam on the E! red carpet (Thanks to @Vegas1024 who got this up super fast)

He talks about when we can expect his new album. Yep you guessed it.

 Here’s him introducing Bastille

Adam Goes Green

 

 It doesn’t mean he has gone all organic, although he might have-Adam has dyed his hair green. He tweeted out a photo last night saying “Green Hair Don’t Care”.

 

So what has prompted this sudden change in his coif’s color? Let’s see:

Could it be a tribute to his favorite vegetable KALE?

A possible reference to new music, the green light in a traffic signal=intense forward motion?

A nod to the green grass of summer- a hint to a summer single hmmmmm?

Or maybe just his love of grass lol!

Maybe it’s an homage to the 4 leaf clover, as he’s feeling lucky just having been in Stockholm recording his album

Could it also be an ode to green tea and the new Lipton tea ad that is airing using Lay Me Down as the jingle? (Green tea because he’s healthy like that)

Which may also tie into his excitement about Shady being used in a Kia Soul ad in Korea, a very green electric vehicle.

Of course these ads along with his upcoming tour with Queen are helping to bring him some good old fashioned green-nothing wrong with celebrating that!

Finally, maybe it’s a tribute to Kermit and the rainbow connection and all of us just living in peace & equality under one big happy rainbow.

LAMBERT VS LEVINE: A REFERENCE MANUAL FOR THE CLUELESS PART 2. ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN.

So quite a while back I made a handy dandy little post about how to tell Adam Lambert and Adam Levine apart, seeing as how tons of random people can’t seem to keep them straight. And while that post was quite informative, and there really shouldn’t be ANY more confusion, it seems that people just can’t get it through their heads who is who.

So here it is. One last time. The ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN. This should leave you in NO DOUBT about which is which.

PAY ATTENTION PEOPLE! I AM NOT GONNA DO THIS AGAIN!

Levine: Daring hairstyle: Adam Lambert circa 2010

Lambert: Daring hairstyle. Gump. circa 1994.

Levine: Knitwear….bashful.

Lambert: Knitwear……face palm-y.

Levine: Brother. Gay. Adorable.

Lambert: Brother. Straight. Negative.

Levine: Sassy head snap.

Lambert: Cranium twerkin’.

Levine: Along for the ride.

Lambert: In the drivers seat baby.

Levine: I just can’t handle it. I ain’t ready.

Lambert:  It shakes all over like a jelly fish. I kinda like it.

Levine: Plays the drums.

Lambert: Plays A drum.

Levine: Gently caresses the microphone stand.

Lambert: Gets the microphone stand off.

Levine: Sorry about that bro.

Lambert: Oh. Em. Gee.

Levine: Sexiest man alive.

Lambert: Demands a recount

AND THIS TIME YA’LL BETTER KEEP THIS SHIT STRAIGHT! YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!

CHUNKEY’S GLEECAP: CELEBRATE STARCHILD’S AMBIGUOUS GOODBYE!

Elliott “Starchild” Gilbert came into our lives as a whirling dervish of rhinestones and sequins, wrapped up in a killer voice and topped off with a thick head of hair that doesn’t even need hair gel.

A glitter rock vampire with nothing but a song in his heart, he blew in from Jersey, land of malls, and shook up the Glee kids lives. But sadly it is his time to go. For now at least.  This week marked the last Elliott episode for the foreseeable future. Let’s take a look at his scenes this week before we celebrate ALL that is Elliott Gilbert. Farewell Elliott. We hardly knew ye. Here’s hoping you return in the series finale as 30 something year old Kurt begs his adopted Burundian children for permission to bang you.

Now tonight’s episode. The whole show seems to have shifted to NYC now with Sam and Blaine and Artie all moving there, and I will admit that it’s already a better show without those terrible new kids. However I am just gonna go over Starchild’s two scenes. In his first scene Elliott and Kurt are at their favorite guitar store and Kurt is complaining about how Blaine is everywhere now that he’s moved to NYC. He’s at home, he’s at school, he wakes up in the middle of the night to see Blaine staring creepily into his face while muttering something about a “skin suit”. Overall he’s losing it man. What is Elliott’s advice for him? Well he does mention that at first he thought they two were way too young to get married, but now he’s basically team Klaine because Klaine is the black hole that sucks everything good and real into it’s depths.

This is a pic of Elliott being sucked into the Klaine black hole. RUUUN!

And then they sing “Rockstar” by A Great Big World and 100 random people just show up to partay because NYC is the music store capital of the world.

Then the last scene we have of Elliott (but will it be though? I feel they left the door open for him since there was no mention of him leaving) is of Blaine instigating a confrontation that pretty much looks like this

As Blaine barges into his apartment, HIS NOSTRILS FURIOUS WITH RAGE and hurling accusations that Elliott is trying to steal Kurt.

WOAH WOAH SETTLE DOWN BLAINE. I MEAN YOU DID CHEAT ON KURT AND HAVE A CRUSH ON SAM SO YOU REALLY SHOULDN’T BE FLIPPING OUT THAT KURT HAS A FRIEND.

Woah. Blaine totes goes all gangsta on his ass.

Thankfully Elliott is the only adult in this show who acts rationally and calmly

And basically he has to tell Blaine to put on his grown man panties and suck it up—he doesn’t think of Kurt like that. And then the whole audience cries NOOOOO WHYYYYYYYYYY because…Starkurt tho. *sniff* And then they make up and jam.

And then….that’s it. They sing glitter rock vampire into the night and Elliott gives him hair styling tips I suppose.

So as we wait to see if he pops up sometime in season 6….jump after the cut to celebrate all of season 5 Elliott realness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A WALK DOWN ADAM FANDOM MEMORY LANE AND A BITTERSWEET GOODBYE

I’ve sort of been taking a little hiatus from posting since nothing really is going on that’s earth shattering, and to rest up before the onslaught of era 3, but when I saw this week that TWoP was being closed down by evil evil NBC  I had to make a post. You see TWoP–or Television Without Pity–is a website that had wonderful snarky recaps and forums for tons of TV shows and is where I first dipped my toe into Adam fandom back when he was on American Idol. It was the first site where I connected with other fans and chatted and flailed and God knows what.

Since the site will soon be reduced to nothing but a memory (the forums will be open till the end of May and then that’s it )and in honor of my fond memories there I decided to make a sort of “Best Of” post.

These are some of the best, worst, lulziest, flailiest, trolliest, nastiest, and wtf-iest comments from Adam’s thread during his Idol run.

And for the record, the original Adam thread has over 4 million views. The 2nd thread over 2 million.

Let’s take a stroll down memory lane. Time travel back with me to March 2009 through May 2009…

A BRIEF ROUND OF UP OF THINGSES

So what’s been going on lately? Let’s take a brief look at the most pressing issues.

LMD is being used in a Dutch Lipton Iced tea commercial. LOL

Well hey if it’s not gonna be a single at least it can help sell some delicious refreshing beverages eh?

Nile tweeted (or DM failed basically) this interesting nugget:

niletweet3OIC. Could this be the lyrics or title to one of the other Avicii collabs? Or something totally different for Adam’s own album? Is he gonna ask us to put our hands in the air and wave em like we just don’t care?!?! Good job Nile on the DM fail. Please fail some more. I’ll wait.

What else what else…hmmmm…..oh yeah….

QUEEN AND ADAM SOLD OUT MADISON FUCKING SQUARE GARDEN!!!!!!!

QUEENTWEET2

(THAT IS THE MSG MARQUEE. HOLD ME. HOLD MEEEE.)

And are on their way to selling out all the other dates as well!!!

queentweet

And last but certainly not least…..we have gotten confirmation he is working with SWEDISH HIT MAKING GOD MAX MARTIN AND HIS LITTLE SWEDISH SONG MAKING MINIONS.

“[Martin] just brought in a load of people that he trusts and that make good music, and just seeing what happens,” U.K. singer-songwriter Joe Janiak, who recently co-wrote Ellie Goulding’s “Divergent” soundtrack single “Beating Heart,” tells Billboard. Janiak, a London native, was called to come out to Sweden early last week and work with a collection of song experts that was organized by Martin. “He’s got a company which really focuses on getting the best young writers and getting them all together in one place, so that they can have a hotbed of creativity and spin ideas off of each other,” Janiak adds of Martin.

There is no timetable for Lambert’s next record, but Janiak says that Martin and co. have been able to conjure some special moments in the studio. “I think there are going to be big things on this record, because the focus is on really strong songwriting and performance and stuff like that,” says Janiak. “They’re really locking in on all of [Lambert's] strong points and just making him even better. I think that’s definitely going to be an exciting one.”

BRB….

 

PROCESSING THIS INFORMATION….

 

CONCLUSION…

 

Era 3 bitches. Get into it. It’s gonna be amazing.
