When I went to the massage therapist this week I just said "everything hurts". I've pulled a back muscle that I tweak now and then but it's my hips and my one thigh that are just so so stiff. My exercise bicycle is still running good after four years so I'm getting some use out of it. The weather is nice but that means gardening and that in turn leads to something getting over use. grrr, I feel trapped inside and my outside bike needs the tire fixed. Darn, sounding frustrated today. Could be that it's 1am and I can't sleep? Nah. I was feeling pretty good earlier in the day. Weights fluxuating more up than down but nothing big. Well, on to next week.
I'm up from two weeks ago but down a bit from last week. Went to an out of town conference where they fed us lots. Smallish group, just 20 people, so family style meals like at a chinese diner where we couldn't even get to the last two dishes.
My exercise is minimal because some part of my legs, feet to hips, will hurt later on. I'm trying to do stretching and weights instead.
That instagram post of alison got me to finally watch their duett performance of "aftermath"...I was kind of surprised Alison didn't get a solo-part...It's untypical for Adam to dominate a duett the way he seemed to do there imho...
...and his post for siblings day: can he get any cuter?
Probably didn't get a chance to practice it and I don't remember if Alison was singing it on her own anywhere at the time. Save
The season 8 people who got contracts were Adam, Kris, Allison, Gokey. The ones who still have a contract are Adam and Danny (not original labels.) Matt, Kris, Megan, Anoop are all releasing music independently. Allison's group, Halo Circus, might have a small indie label, but I am not sure if they still do.
Thank you for this info....I did know that Danny went from Country to Christian, but that was about it. Since my other Adam board (MTT) moved from the Idolforum, I lost track of them. I didn't realize that Kris didn't have a label. And Anoop changed his name, didn't he?
It's just interesting to me (not watching these talent shows), and kind of sad, how hard these people work and, in many cases, without any real results.
I admire that kind of ambition, because I don't think I could do it.
Anoop changed his name? I haven't kept up lol. Anoop was my favorite in the round of 36. I wasn't a big fan of Satisfaction but then Adam was a given and I usually looked for the underdog. Kris was the only winner my son rooted for but he's never made it to my neck of the woods so we haven't made it to a concert. Save
Matt Giraud @immattgiraud As long as @adamlambert pays 4 the tour bus, sure! He's the only one that can afford it. 🚌💨 #reuniontour @krisallen @totemsound @dannygokey
Jonins @krisjonin Do you think it's about time Season8 idols should have a reunion concert? 😉
haha. I'd love it. Sigh, miss those days. Kris just released some new music and Matt is doing good with collabs. And yeah yeah I know not a career move, and some peeps just can't stand the thought, but for me it would be cool. Save
The original motion soundtrack by upcoming American 3D computer animated film Ferdinand, which was produced by Blue Sky Studios and 20th Century Fox Animation, is expected to be launched later this year via Sony Music Entertainment
The film is directed by Carlos Saldanha, while the soundtrack includes the song “Castle On the Hill” by Ed Sheeran, which is also part on the official trailer, plus brand new tracks by Adam Lambert, Shakira and Rihanna.
"plus BRAND NEW tracks by Adam Lambert...." ????? Hmmm. We thought it would be an existing song, not a new one. Maybe this info is incorrect? Shosh seems to thinks it's an existing song.
Maybe "brand new" ie not released as a single. He may have given us a clue with the sunglasses and "shady". I could see that with a big animated bull dancing around. Save
A while back someone had posted places they heard Adam in stores. A really cool thing happened this wknd @ Target. I was getting a new phone & was there w/ my girls (huge Adam fans-my oldest was twirled by Adam during the live concert in Atlantic City & my youngest met Adam when he stuck his head in my car to say hi to her) & my hubby. My girls were sitting at the end of the isle facing the tv's. All of a sudden my older daughter yells Mommy I just saw Adam. I said no you didn't. She said yes, it was him. Sure enough I came over & watched for a second & sure enough there he was with a major close up. They were airing past Iheart clips & showed the clips from the Q & AL concert. It was really cool cause the clips they showed were mostly of Adam w/ one super close up.
So if you are at a Target anytime soon go back to the TV section & watch for a few minutes. They played it over & over quite a few times. WE were in line a while so saw it about 5-7 times.
Cool to see him on the screens. iHeart was a winner.
Speaking of black and white. The other day I saved an Adam photo, hadn't done that for a couple of months. And that night I wondered if I'd downloaded a virus with it. It was a nice virus if it was one. I don't have a screen saver usually going on my machine although I have had in the past so if I want to start it up it knows what pictures i want. Well that night, I get up in the middle of the night and my computer, laptop which is running but usually powered down by that time, is having a merry ol' time playing Adam pictures. And the really weird part was that it wasn't just the folder I have of him, it was somehow find in there or on the web just Black and White photos of him.
so two things weird - screen saver going for no reason, and only black and white.
So I'm thinking maybe it's a sign. After all his first big Idol song where everyone (not talking about glamberts here) picked up their ears was jackson's black or white. It would fit with a throwback vibe for the next album.
My bet is flew into Sonoma Airport, went north, went for a hike, did his "event", went back south to the airport - doesn't seem like much north that he would have arrived at so his business had to be north of the airport. He either needs lots of clothes for a multi-night stay or clothes for a photoshoot. I'm betting multi-night stay since picked up more than just one meal for Pharoah yesterday.
So again, what types of things do we see Leah at? Photo-shoots? Interviews? Adam centric? QAL centric?
Oh, and required an overnight stay already. Hmmmm. Maybe fly up yesterday, hike in the morning to keep up energy, ride south to his interview? So maybe his hotel was north of the airport and his event south of it?
So does Leah travel with him for both Adam and Queen stuff? My bad memory.
But the question for me is - What is he off to do that requires Leah? And that I'm thinking is somewhere which requires media and a big announcement. Which could be the Queen leak and a trip to Europe for what Brian leaked like they travel to LA for the US tour promo.
And so doing the brainstorming for myself here, since he's still recording and as much as we've said the trend is for singles but betting this Queen related.
...... and since I started typing this around three hours ago then the convo has probably already decided this.
I liked it. Fun to watch. Great to get so many involved and cute dancing, even the boys that don't quite know what they are doing. Singer has a bit of Adam's tone so it all went well.
What country is it from? Save
Thank you nica and graciejane I'm assuming that the official disapproval of gays probably extends to music too and yet so many Russians love Adam. Most of this guy's vids just have 20 or so plays and are just of him. This seems to be the main one with a full band. Save
Yes, I was down 2 this morning from last week. I did three or four sets of four story stairs yesterday (office building stairs so high ceilings). Not sure it was good for my feet but got my blood pumping in a lot less time. I'm calling my number a 5 just so I can remember next week if I go down or up. Been a bit stressful with my dad home. He has his good days and his bad. I'm not getting a lot of paying work done but hey it's been good for my weight loss.
I usually start singing along for a few seconds then realize, "Oh! That's Adam!"
I've done that and then gone "that's not Adam. Why do I think it should be Adam?" And of course it's something that Adam covered, usually on Idol or the Idol tour. I do that right now a lot because my station is playing Apologize.
(For those of you going what? Yes, I know it was Kris who covered it on Idol but Kris and Adam will always be linked in my brain. (Kradam fan here) So I hear the song and say, 'that's not Kris, shouldn't it be Kris?" and that of course reminds me obliquely of Adam. Because everything leads back to Adam.) Save
