My short term memory lasts about 5 seconds after I get on the scale in the morning and say "It's Wednesday, I should post". So thanks for posting so that I saw it in the recent posts list. I'm back down 2 (despite valentines) and just flirting with the number I was at a few years ago. Body seems to like jumps up or down and then finds it's happy place. So I just need to fast for 48 hours again, someplace that's not home. Yeah that home part is the kicker.
Yes, I am having the very same problem. It's like as if twitter pre-selects which of the people I follow actually get shows in my timeline. And I only noticed it now, but it must have been going on for quite some weeks, because certain people post daily and yet, at some point their tweets stopped reaching me. Not sure why?
One feed that I notice I am not getting anymore is Nate Silver @natesilver538 . I heard that twitter-administration shadows certain users, but would they do that for such an account? Would be quite alarming, if that were the case. I am trying to figure that out myself, and so it is interesting to read that you have the same problem. Frustrating. Please let me know, if you find something about that.
Well I'm not getting Queen anymore. What's with that? And creativesharka a couple of times already. gelly today also for one post. I sometimes also only find out about a tweet if someone else retweets them or quotes them while I'm following that person. Very frustrating. I've checked my setting already a couple of times. I have turned everything off that would indicate that twitter can influence my timeline, but still it somehow does that.
ETA: I filed a case with twitter help. Hope they respond or at least do something about it.
Might try something like Hootsuite to see if going through a third party brings over everything. Hootsuite is free and you can view all the multiple lists you've made from peeps you follow and hashtags or searches. Save
I think as fans we can be very bias. Just because Adele no Adam Lambert. Doesent mean we should diminish her success or talent. Adele is one of the best contemporary voices of our time. Adams screwed up from time to time on live tv. Amas cough. But Doesent make him less of a vocalist. Because of it.
Anyway, I wonder when Adam we'll start making real movements on A4. Hopefully real soon. Early March possibly. Album released after the Qal tour. August probably.
I don't think that we CAN diminish her success. The whole world KNOWS that she is successful.
I don't really agree that she has one of the best contemporary voices of our time. Sorry, I just don't. I prefer many female singers over her.
When has Adam screwed up on live TV? Do you have examples? I can't remember anything except the AMAs and that screw up was not about his voice. Thanks
and PS....don't start saying to me that I have a hostile tone again. lol I DO NOT. I am genuinely curious when he screwed up from time to time on live TV. 8 years is a long time being his fan. I might have forgot those screw ups.
As far as making real movements on A4...I think he is. He has said that he is in the studio already and just starting. Seems it will be a while though. I do however think that we will get something before QAL kicks off. I can't wait for something new from him.
lol, I'm glad you added that PS because I was getting some vibes up to that point. I'll disagree with you about the AMAs not being about his voice. But you wanted other examples and I'll throw in Divas. I think it took a couple of years for Adam to get over his nerves on one-time tv appearances on the Voice etc in other countries and the vocals skipped just slightly several times, I can't pull out exact times and dates for you. I said it at the time several times and only lately have been getting agreement from others about those past years and the nerves.
On Adele, I think she has a pretty voice and she's very good at what she does. I don't think that she does a lot of different things but then I only hear what's on the radio. Save
Wow! Look at this ad about the drones used at the Super Bowl halftime. This is great!
IntelVerified account @intel 14h14 hours ago Our drones have returned to the ground after an amazing #PepsiHalftime show #ExperienceMore
OT But these drones bring back a memory. The year was 1966 and group of friends and I were in the yard in Arlington Texas. We noticed a small light hovering above us about 40 feet in the air and 100 yards from us. No noise, nothing. It flew off and amidst crys of alien invasion one of my friends and I jumped in the car and followed. it headed toward a military base close by. So I think they have been working on drones since the '60s.
My dad saw a light like that in the 50s. No sound just hovering over a house like it was listening and then took off straight up. No military base within 100 miles or more.
For Gaga I think they should have shown at least one drone closeup. I just thought they were tv special effects. Save
My opinion? Of course Adam can read music enough to get the gist of the lyric and timing. He only has to know that notes on the bottom are lower than those on the top and that more notes between vertical lines means faster and notes with a curved line between them slide into each other. Memorize the two C positions and adjust from there. He had singing lessons for yearssss. I doubt very much that he was just given a sheet with words on it and his hired teachers would consider that sufficient for a vocalist. Doesn't he warm up singing scales?
But to Adam and Neil does that mean he "reads" music? Well I can do as much as the above and I can pick out the one note melody on a piano with my right hand and if I practice really hard I could memorize a series of two hand chords. Of course I completely forget to look for what scale it's in so if it's a bflat or fsharp or whatever those things are then that means a lot of pencil notes because I'm stuck in C and 4/4 time. My son in marching band on the other hand not only has to read music but play it while marching in multiple time signatures and patterns, he's way above me. Meanwhile another band kid hears full multi-instrumental concertos in his head and writes music for the philharmonic.
Adam has said back before Idol that he played around with songs using computer programs. You need to know some basics to add the right drum rhythm and other instruments. He can still do that today and with his phone if he's on the road and gets a melody in his head all he has to do is hit record and it's saved and he can replay it and weave harmonies around it.
Anyone besides me think this twitter party is so he can announce something to the fans? 9 a.m. for Adam? Ummmm, not normal at all!
Yep.. that tweet makes me go.. "hhhmmmm ?! .. is something going on?" Especially he's not on the airport waiting for his flight or in a tour bus couldn't sleep. He announced it over 24 hours prior. Something is coming
Based on being on AccessHollywood live and an announced twitter party I'm betting the twitter party is one of two things.
Either between one appointment and the next - why not keep the fans engaged while waiting
Requested by an interviewer like they usually send out requests for fan questions themselves. Save
That's a ton of moving rihannsu but sounds like the new place is worth it. I'm up this week about 2 pounds. Gaining back some of what I lost three weeks ago. I went on heartburn/acid reflux meds about a week and a half ago and that may be part of it. And still no outside exercising around here with snow piles and ice. I guess I should use that gym membership I own.
Load both on your phone and you'll put your credit card on each. I did Lyft in Vegas because it pays drivers better. The app was really easy to use, I could call my driver easily and direct him to the hospital entrance I was at. I had one just take me across the street. Another helped me get my dad in and out of the car. They drop you off and when you get a chance you pay later. Easy to add tips etc. Easy to see if somebody is close by (shows map and how many minutes away) Easy to cancel, one driver had SUV which was too tall so canceled and just asked for another one. Shows pic of the car they are supposed to be driving. So for a newbie it worked really well for me. Save
Anyone know if Sauli is still in LA? I wonder if, since Adam had that big NYE party, he might have a smaller birthday party this year.
I'll have to enjoy the QAL shows vicariously once again. I was planning to take son and DIL to the Seattle show, but the blowback from DH has been enough to make me give that idea up. Damn it. Oh well. I'll still be enjoying the adventures of Adam Lambert, albeit quietly!
Long time between now and summer so don't give up. Just because there is a crazy rush here to get floor tickets next to the thrust don't fall into the trap that nice tickets in the rest of the arena are available much closer to the time. Your son and DIL might have some influence over time on your DH too. I'd love to go to one again but this summer is all a toss up at this time so I'll be doing the vicariously watching too. Save
Posting at the end of the thread hoping this won't be too political. My son had me watch it and hopefully most people find it humorous. This is the number one trending youtube video today. It's bad lip reading of inauguration day.
And because this came up in my suggested video list while watching the above.....a sultry Wicked Games by Adam.
Goodness rihannsu, that's a lot of flights. I was stair climbing yesterday too for about three hours, not constantly but pretty much up and down or around during the time. Tuckered me out lol. Well I've stayed the same as last week so my two days of unplanned fasting so far have stayed with me.
Glad you are feeling better stardust. I've got a rib out and need to make a couple of trips to the chiropractor. Some days I feel great and others I think I'm having a heart attack.

lorraine: Thank you Betty for the beautiful cakes. Those cherries on top---simply scrumptious---I'm salivating. One of the reasons my day will be extra lovely today is because people like you are in the world.
