Q3, thanks for your schooling about Easter. I don't celebrate it but enjoyed learning more about where the traditions came from.
NoAngel--that was a beautiful essay today. I love the quote by Jacob TWOP.
“That little moment where his eyes clear and he smiles, that's become my favorite part of the show each week, because you remember you're allowed to breathe and that all of this is just pretend.” ~ Jacob at Television Without Pity, about Adam’s “Feeling Good” performance on AI8
I didn't know about online fan communities, etc., until a few months after AI ended. But I bought all the Adam videos and listened to the recordings endlessly. I remember noticing that thing about him coming out of his zone. It was so subtle but so meaningful. I didn't realize that other people noticed it or talked about it because I was in my own bubble (not the AI bubble yet). Sometimes I'm very oblivious to things that others in this fandom notice, but I at least picked up on that. It took me much longer to realize that when he performs, it isn't necessarily that deep (ala Gaga, as you mentioned). That heightened my appreciation of how much fun he was having.
@joshrosenyc tweeted earlier that Sauli was kissing someone else ..turns out it was Adam after all !!
JoshRoseNYC: @stoprightmeoww sorry dude earlier was Adam didn't recognize w jacket on haha you were right
No gate after all
LOL Yeah, no bedlamgate - just misunderstandings or should we say twitterunderstandings: Adam making out with someone else than Sauli = a kiss on a fanboy's cheek. 8-) ??? Sauli making out with someone = making out with Adam
So all's right with the world. 8-) HAPPY EASTER, EVERYONE.
>:(Happy Easter to all who celebrate! Off to an Easter egg hunt but wanted to put my prediction in for March 11th, 2012.
Beautiful sunny day here in Boston right now!
Sounds like Adam had fun last night.
Why the frowny face, BB? LOL, it was probably a mistake, but it seemed rather incongruous with your message, so I thought it was funny.
Flowergirl, I've never heard of buttermilk pie, but it sounds yummy!!
Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates!! Will have a nice family gathering today. It's been awhile, so it will be nice. Looks a little overcast and dreary in SoCal right now though. :-/
Love the essay history lesson, Q3 and the essay, NoAngel. I have always loved that moment too. Or also when he breaks character or focus to smile. One of the best examples of that is SF2; man we need a gif of that WLL moment.
Q3 prediction November 14, 2011 at 11pm... anniversary date!!
Noangel---love your commentary this am...I copied it for my files!! Especially poignant is this part about the focus on play acting...in and out of character!
"Adam, on the other hand, refuses to take himself seriously, and reminds us constantly that it is not that deep. The common thread running through all the different looks and styles he’s shown us is an irrepressible sense of fun. Adam’s enthusiasm is infectious and he makes us want to play right along with him. He is as much an artist as is Gaga, but he is one who will happily show you how he mixed the paint. And at the end of the day, he’ll scrape off the colors and show you the canvas as well.
I never worry that Adam will lose himself along the way, or that his true self will drown in a persona. He reassures me with that joyful smile, and because I know he’s having a great time, I do too."
[glow=red,2,300]HAPPY EASTER[/glow] to those who share this spirit! Big bunny hugs all around
HMMM seems like Adam was bunny hugging last night too..with maybe a few smooches...ahhhh... just as good as chocolate!
