FYI - I'm popping on the thread here and going backwards (recent posts) so this is the first post I see. And I just got done watching DeadPool, the movie. All dressed in red and uh so now I see Adam is dressed as Dead Pool. Ok then.
It doesn't sound like a radio single to me either, yet. I don't think radio would accept it on it's own terms. But. Play it at enough QAL concerts in the USA, where it fits in perfectly with Go big, Go brash, Go for it and either get on board or go home, we don't give two fux, well then this has more of a chance to go viral. It's got a much better chance than Welcome to the Show which had zero.
As far as promo, the chair photo is too recent for this to be planned as part of an album release. It was probably written, stashed, and then maybe brought out for Westboro.
One thing is for sure. It will become an internet meem.
I'm off at my conference. Hmm conference food, not bad and they always have desert. I've been trying to up my veggies (salad) and fruit and savor my one desert. Maybe I'm working it off since I'm teaching all day? And I did take a walk last night after crashing the first night. My hotel has a great recliner but the mirrors, oh the mirrors. I must have mine strategically placed at home. We'll see when I get home.
rihannsu, I hope your van gets repaired. Car issues can be tough especially when you need it for work.
Moving gear and setting up/running doing audio visual for concerts/events is what I do all over the world. The equipment is fine in a truck traveling all over the US(regardless of weather), on a ship to Hawaii in a container or flying overseas. Unless there is fire (that would have to be massive) or some other kind of catastrophe it's all good.
Thanks for checking in with us max. Are there some things that shouldn't be stored in the same truck as the electronic gear. My dad's always having me remove his aerosol bear spray cans out of his truck and camper during the hot summer so they don't expand with the heat and leak. So other than layout, ie having items and trucks numbered so that each lot gets in for the build at the right time are there items that should or should not travel together?
I actually did watch the truck instagram several times trying to see if A/C units are somewhere around the trailers, but did not see anything... I know nothing about trucks so decided to ask here :)...Is there a difference between refrigiration (which is NOT needed in this case) and A/C or some form of cooling inside the metal trailers? Cooling is definitely needed in transporting electronic equipment in those extremely high temps... I even checked the Truck-n-Roll site but found nothing...
Having said all that - I am absolutely sure the tour is managed by very experienced pros and I have no worries AT ALL. Just curious I guess...like why not to learn about tractor/trailers while we are at it... learned about so many things here, including bull semen
I would suspect these trailers are custom built with extra insulation to accommodate both extreme heat and cold. Additionally, the electronics themselves will be packaged for transport adding additional insulation. Also, remember they travel mainly late at night to early the next day, so at less heat stress times.
As to difference between A/C and refrigerated, basically just a difference in language based on intended usage of the euquipment to denote the lower temperature capabilities needed for full refrigeration versus comfort cooling.
Nice explanation graciejane. The extra insulation and night travel would help. And Nica, I think it's a fair question. For those of us who work with computers we are always told to keep them cool right? I would add that it's probably operating temperature for electronics that would be worrisome but not when they are turned off and stored.
To sing those songs they need a talented man at the mic. That’s just what they have in Adam Lambert. Whether you like his own music or not, it’s hard to deny that the man can flat out sing. The Queen catalog requires a skilled a versatile vocalist. When you listen to this version of Queen live, and you know the music – you sometimes wonder if Lambert will be able to hit that huge high note that everyone knows is coming. The answer, over and over, is yes! He has the range and he has the charisma to pull off songs written by and written for the ultimate rock vocalist. He’s not Freddie Mercury, but he is brilliant in his own way.
Plus, there is an intangible he brings to Queen. I saw the band several times with Paul Rodgers and the shows were amazing! Rodgers is an incredible singer. So is Lambert in a different way. Rodgers is a contemporary of May and Taylor. Lambert came later. I was able to sit in the front row at a concert in a smaller in Las Vegas in July 2014. You can see a lot from that close. You can see pure joy on the faces of mature and experienced rock stars, watching and listening to a young man give their songs new life. There’s an energy that Lambert brings to the music and even to the band. It is compelling to watch and it is spectacular to hear. May and Taylor smile a lot during these concerts, both at and with Lambert. They seem to be having as much fun as all of us in the audience. Isn’t that how it should be?
I'm here for Adam news and sharing about Adam and thinking about Adam every day. Ok that sounds a little obsessed. Well it's my relaxing place. So if I'm just here for Adam do I want to hear about other people? Hell yes! Now I may not want to go into long discussions about other people but I want to hear about those that have been in his life. What's Terrance up to, is Sasha doing anything these days, who were those people with him at the Resist parade (nobody has said anything yet.) I don't have time to follow them elsewhere or check out twitter. Maybe I should amend my "I'm here for..." to "I'm here to follow Adam and hear about his circle of influence".
And that brings me to my point. What? Nobody discussed who those people are? People are now going to be scared shitless to post about Sauli? What the hell? Listen up. There's always going to be something on this board that bores you. Maybe it's numbers, or instagram pics, or pencil drawings, or dolls, or house pics, or twitter praise, or or or or or or or.
Get the damn over it.
I don't really give a shit that something isn't your cup of tea. If you don't like the tea go get a cup of coffee and bring it in. I don't drink either so happy to discuss both. I'll be bringing hot chocolate.
And for those of you who bring strawberry lemonade and somebody says that they prefer raspberry don't go getting all whip creamy and melt away. It might just be their way of communicating. Because hell, if they shut up too this place is going to look like the stone age.
So in conclusion. My opinion is post away, bring lots of things, have a sense of place and timing but don't be bound so tight in a corset that you can't have fun. I read everything, every day. It's home, our home. Things are allowed to get messy.
“My name is Adam Lambert and I am proud to be a human. I’m also gay, cisgendered, redheaded, jewish and a man, but that’s getting specific. Look, we have moved into an area of intense categorizing, in an effort to declare our identities. We use labels in order to help others understand who we are and how we live. And sometimes we need them to figure ourselves out too, because we want to take pride in our individuality. But do you sometimes feel that we’ve gotten a little carried away with all these labels? Cause at the end of the day we’re all human beings. I mean, wouldn’t you rather identify somebody by their name and their energy instead of their sexual preference, their race, their gender, their age or their religion? If we could do that, wouldn’t that be more rewarding and allow for deeper connection? Now I know that’s being very idealistic. It’s wishful thinking and sadly this is not the reality of the world we live in, especially lately. I typically avoid publicly speaking about politics because of its divisiviness. People get really sensitive and I’m not trying to piss anybody off. But this year things have gone way too far. So I’m not speaking today about being a democrat vs. a republican. Today it’s about right vs. wrong. The current presidential administration has manipulated the country, using fear and hate to gain power, to divide us. Our differences are being used against us. And the shock waves of this dangerous reality have rippled throughout our community and beyond. And it fucking hurts. We’ve come way too far to stand by and watch our social progress be yanked backwards. You know, it’s almost like they’re going: ‘Nah! You’re different! You can’t sit with us.’ What the fuck is that? It’s childish and it needs to end now. Our pride parade is usually an all-out shit show of a party where we’re all dressed up like crazy unicorns and prance around through the streets. Yeah, it’s a celebration of the progress we have made. Our liberation. Our freedom. Our glitter. But this year we are facing such dark forces that Pride has taken a deeper purpose: protest. So today we stand together in order to support anyone whose human rights are at risk. We resist homophobia. We resist transphobia. We resist misogyny. Bi-invisibility. We resist racism. Xenophobia. And we resist extremism. And anything else that helps promote hate. We stand defined and we’ll not be brainwashed. We refused to be sucked into that kind of negativity. But I ask you not to fight hate with hate. We don’t want to be hypocrites. So how can we resist? I’ll tell you what I think. With unity. With visibility. Truth. Inclusion. Acceptance. And most importantly LOVE. Look, we’ve got a lot of work to do and a lot of ignorance to combat. But we know right from wrong. We know that we are stronger together than we are divided. So take some time today and connect with someone different from you. Recognize another human being. We all deserve to love and be loved. And that goes for all of us within the queer community, within this country and on this planet. After all, the only way our rainbow is a motherfucking rainbow is with all the colors shining equally. Thank you.”
Anyone know what he meant by "Bi-invisibility"? I didn't understand that part.
So glad you posted rihannsu My days are crazy for me right now. Getting ready for two big weeks of presentations and doing website testing. Weight wise I'm still within my 3 pound range, so not much changing.
so great to learn all this pattihum and skaschep ...Adam is in Queen-college and I'm in Adamtopia-college
I thought one DL equaled more streams...and as said I'm only learning of the importance of the streams, so when A4 will come around (patience, patience, patience ) I'll make sure to do my part!
One purchase/download does equal more streams. You are not wrong. I can't remember what the formula is though. I think it's worth around 100 streams but it could be worth just 8 or over 1000. Somewhere we have the estimated formula.
I do think that giving Think some streams will give his label or anyone some info about what to expect with new music. In that sense I'm a bit disappointed about the numbers for Think. They are pretty low and for a worldwide superstar I would have expected some higher numbers when we finally get a new song from him after the last one was with the RHPS or Broken which is almost 10 months ago already. I do hope that for Era 4 we all can go back into stream/buy mode again and are ready to give him that little bit extra that he deserves.
I'm not surprised. It's not a new song. It's a cover. And it's in a kids' movie. IMO, the numbers for Think are no indication of the numbers for era 4. I mean, we have people right here who have said they won't buy it. And others who have said they'll buy it to support, but won't listen. And we are supposed to be the stans! I added it to my Spotify playlist that I stream 24/7. But I know there are still many people NOT using Spotify. Spotify is so easy, IDG why some are so reluctant?
I stream very occasionally. It tends to slow up my computer which already isn't typing as fast as my fingers. Too many web windows open, too many spreadsheets etc.
