It's Fun Friday, the Music Edition! :)

:: (This one's for [livejournal.com profile] azewewish. *g*) George Michael has joined Twitter! @GeorgeMichael. I'm greatly amused. Y'all know this is gonna be good times!

:: Speaking of George Michael, next week he's releasing a single, a cover of "True Faith," with the proceeds to benefit Comic Relief. OMGYAY!!! New George Michael on my iPod sooooon!!!!!!!! *bounces*

:: And speaking of my favorite musicians doing awesome things for awesome causes, Adam's dropping a remix of Aftermath next week to benefit The Trevor Project. Aftermath is the PERFECT song for this and I can't wait to hear this new dance remix. And, bonus! He'll be performing on American Idol next Thursday!!! He's doing an acoustic version of Aftermath (which made me cry pretty much every time I heard it on tour). Adam on my TV again!!!!!! *bounces more*

:: [GLEE SONG SPOILERS!!! Scroll on by if you don't want to know.] Darren Criss, Chris Colfer, and the Warblers are singing Neon Trees' "Animal" in next week's Glee episode and I pretty much LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS!!! I love Chris singing in his lower register and he and Darren sound fabulous together and there's growliness and the arrangement is awesome and yeah, just so much love! I think I've replayed this about a 20 times since it came out this morning. That trend is probably going to continue.

:: And Darren is doing a show in L.A. later this month!!!! I am so ridiculously excited about this! And I'm a little amused that fandom doesn't seem to have clued in on this performance, so maybe we'll have a low-key crowd. *hopes*

:: Also, Darren and Charlene Kaye are totes my musical OTP. I love them so, so much! Dress and Tie Music Video Adorableness!!! )

:: Ok, I have no idea where this came from or who these dudes are. This just appeared on my Tumblr dash this morning, but, holy wow, y'all have to hear this! I was going to say that it's perhaps the best cover of "Smooth Criminal" that I've ever heard, but it's more than that. This is like sex. Really hot, angry sex...with cellos! )

:: Also, Adele. Still haven't taken "21" off of repeat. So. Damn. Good. I'm so bummed that there isn't a show on her tour anywhere near me though. *sadface*

So, now it's your turn! Tell me all about YOUR musical happy place! What are you listening to? What shows are you looking forward to? What's happening with your favorite musicians? I wanna know!!!!!! :D
I'm still trying to claw my way out of the grip of this plague. I have no voice today, which is not particularly fun. But I'm still hoping this antibiotic is kicking some germ ass and I'll start to feel better soon. *hopes*

But, on a cheerier note, it is Friday, and that's always fun. Plus, there are some cool things happening in the world, like, oh, you know, the Egyptian people successfully conducting a (mostly) peaceful revolution by harnessing the power of Twitter! Ah-may-zing.

Another cool, though far less world-changing, good thing today: [livejournal.com profile] _lisalisa_, [livejournal.com profile] coolwhipdiva, and I have VIP tickets, WITH MEET & GREETS, to the San Diego Glee Live! show!!!! *twirls* J was workin' the ticket mojo yesterday and she scored for us! I'm still deciding about whether I'm going to the Las Vegas or L.A. shows, but I'm super excited about the San Diego show with mah girls!!! <333

Also, in case you've been under a rock and somehow missed all the hype: Lady Gaga's new single dropped today. Now y'all know that I love me some Gaga, but you can't deny that "Born This Way" sounds a hell of a lot like Madonna's "Express Yourself" with a side helping of "Vogue". I don't hate it -- and it'll probably grow on me the more I listen to it. And I'm sure it'll play really well to a live audience. But I'd be lying if I didn't say I was underwhelmed. I mean, if you're gonna self-promote your single as the best anthem ever, then you better produce something phenomenal. And this is ok, I just don't think it's phenomenal. *shrugs*

Also, relevant to nothing at all, I want cupcakes. I haven't actually consumed anything but soup, orange juice and Nyquil for most of the week. But I have a wicked craving for cupcakes right now. Someone bring me cupcakes, 'k? *beams*
The national tour of "Spring Awakening" is playing at Gammage this week for two nights. My mom and I caught last night's show, and, holy hell, it completely blew my mind! I don't even know if I can coherently express how freakin' amazing this was. The music! The cast! The set design! Ahhhh!!!! No. Words. I might need to see it a few dozen more times before my words work again. Just, if you can, go see it. (My L.A. girls: it'll be playing at the Pantages in a few weeks. Go! Go! GO!!!)

Other fabulous things about this Friday:
♒ A Cassidy Haley sex tape. No, really.
This interview with Darren Criss. Delightful!
Pictures of Adam at Disneyland with Sauli looking ridiculously happy. :D

Now you go. Tell me what's fun and fabulous about your Friday! Or your weekend! Or your LIFE!!!
Well, my trainer Matt kicked my ass well and good this morning, so I guess that was fun. For a certain value of fun. The inability to move my arms now is definitely not fun, though. Ow. :/

And in our good news/bad news segment of Fun Friday: I got a phone message from the producers of The Talk. Apparently I got tickets to the taping on February 9th when Adam will be appearing. Two free tickets to see Adam!!! (This would be the "good news" part.) The bad news part would be that it's in L.A., and I'm in Arizona, and jobless and trying to be fiscally responsible, and I just don't know if I can or should make a trip to L.A. at this point. *sadface*

We also decided to postpone our night of burlesque. Half of our group came down with some type of creeping crud, so we decided to wait until everyone was healthy again. No sexy fun times. What kind of Fun Friday is this anyway??? :(

In better news, although for Saturday so it really doesn't make my Friday any more fun, [livejournal.com profile] llandaffaz and I are going to see Cowboy Mouth tomorrow night at The Compound. I think it's humanly impossible to listen to Cowboy Mouth and not have a damn good time. This will indeed be fun and I can't wait!

I'm going to get on with my fun marginally amusing Friday, with some yummy lasagna for dinner and the return of hot gladiators to my television the premier of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena!
Happy Friday everyone! Better yet, Happy Friday Before a Long Weekend (for some of you, at least)! Unfortunately, the whole not working thing kinda takes the thrill out of holiday weekend. :/

But my niece, Rianna, insists that Fridays are supposed to be Fun! So, let's see if we can put a little fun in our Friday, shall we? *beams*

Let's start with some Fun Links:

If you're feeling unmotivated, endless motivation is just a click away. Careful, it's easy to lose yourself in the never ending stream of inspiration!

Sex Is Not the Enemy is one of my favorite Tumblr blogs, because, really, it's not. (Um, NSFW, in case the name didn't clue you in. *g*)

'Nothin But a Glee Thang' with Heather Morris and other Glee cast members on Funny or Die. Hilarious!

How 'bout some Fun Things To Do!

[livejournal.com profile] llandaffaz, [livejournal.com profile] zoniduck and I are going to this burlesque show next Friday. Fun, sexy times! Wanna join us? *tempts*

Who's watching the Golden Globes on Sunday? Any favorite picks?

And finally, Something Fun to Listen To:

Darren Criss covers Disney Songs!!! )

Now, it's your turn! Tell me what's Fun about your Friday! :D

fun friday!

My very shallow Fun Friday Happy List:

1. Cassidy is making me feel highly patriotic today!


Now don't y'all feel like pledging allegiance now! *g*


2. Pretty boys kissing! This never gets old. And after months of this, Tommy actually 'WOW'-ed after this kiss! )


3. And, with thanks to [livejournal.com profile] azewewish for notifying my of the existence of such hotness, Tim Howard, hot, tattooed goalie for Team USA, naked: )

Fun Friday, indeed! *g*
Yeah, well, I really don't have anything. So, have some pretty Adam instead! *g*

Photobucket

More pretty Adam! )

Seriously, Adam, how so ridiculously pretty???

fun friday!

It's Friday!!! Although, I discovered this morning that Friday doesn't carry the same level of excitement when you haven't been slogging through work for the previous five days. *shrugs* Oh, well. It's still FRIDAY!!! I think Friday's, whether or not they come at the end of a work week, should be full of fun and sparkly things!

:: [livejournal.com profile] llandaffaz and I made a completely unplanned trip to Albuquerque on Tuesday for Adam Lambert's show. It was at a teeny-tiny theater that only held about 800 people, we found out Monday night around 11 that we could buy tickets off of someone, it was only about a 7 hour drive, my calendar was suddenly completely clear *g*, so we figured, what the hell. SPONTANEITY FTW!!!

It was a little weird to discover that this Albuquerque crowd was probably the rudest, most obnoxious GA crowd I've been in, including metal shows! Seriously, 300 pound dude, there's no need to push over a 12 year old girl to get closer to the stage. She's about 4 feet tall and weighs all of 90 pounds soaking wet; I'm sure you can see just fine standing behind her. And really, people, this was Adam Lambert we're watching; WE SPARKLE WE DON'T MOSH!!! Ugh. There were so many people thrown out, and I ended up getting the 12 year olds in front of me so that I could at least keep some of the rude shoving and pushing off of them.

But despite the rude and obnoxious crowd (which is really SO strange for an Adam show, as just about everyone else I've encountered has been super nice), there were some awesome people there too. I ended up partying it up standing next to the most gorgeous gay couple in Albuquerque, seriously these boys were SO pretty and touchy and distracting even with Adam on the stage! And the adorable gay teenager in front of us in line who was just as excited to see Tommy as he was Adam and who was practically vibrating with joy after the show filled me with glee!!! And the show was AMAZING!!! Vicki and I had a blast!


:: So You Think You Can Dance!!!! I'm so pleased with the final three. With the exception of Alex who was knocked out by injury and Billy Bell, who was eliminated last week, these were my favorites from the start. I was driving home on Wednesday night, so I didn't get to watch the performance episode, but I finally found Kent and Neil's contemporary piece, choreographed by Travis Wall. I might have watched this about a dozen times already, and if you haven't seen it yet, I'm sorry about your life! GodDAMN. Those three boys make magic together.


:: Cheeks as the gay equivalent of Blanche Devereaux in a theater remake of The Golden Girls!!!! This sounds like the most fantastically hilarious thing ever!!! There is no way that [livejournal.com profile] coolwhipdiva and I are not going to be there for this epic fabulosity!
This aptly summarizes just how freakin' hot it's been around here this week. (Link and laughs courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] without_me.) It also cracks me up. Probably because I'm currently sitting in my air conditioned office. As soon as I need to go outside, "featherless and golden brown and delicious" will cease to be amusing. Because NOTHING is amusing when it's approximately 10 degrees hotter than the ambient temperature of HELL. *melts. grumpily*

Speaking of NOT amusing: my laptop is still in ICU, which is, well no fun at all. My Computer Guy hasn't pronounced it dead yet, so I suppose there's still hope, but I'm getting really damn tired of not having my computer. *grumps some more*

But I do have some fic recs for y'all, which IS fun! *g*

White Collar
Time is of the Essence by [livejournal.com profile] mistresscurvy
Neal/Elizabeth/Peter || NC-17 || ~4,000 words
Established D/s relationship. Neal is late. Peter is not pleased. Elizabeth just wants to get on with it.
She absolutely nails the characterizations, and, dear heavens, people, this is just smoldering hot!

Adam Lambert
Practice Makes Perfect and Hard But Not Complicated by [livejournal.com profile] rivers_bend
Adam/Tommy || Teen & NC-17, respectively
Tour Fic: Adam and Tommy "practice" their stage-gay.

To Be Adorned by [livejournal.com profile] bexless
Adam/Brad || NC-17 || ~ 3,500 words
Adam recently got his nipples pierced. No really he did and I'm not even going to apologize for knowing that. Owning my shame, here, people. *g* Anyway, Adam. Nipples. Pierced. Add Brad and you know the result will be ridiculously hot, right?

Happy Friday!!!
Random sparkly fun stuff for your Friday happy-making!

:: Christina Aguilera's new video for "Not Myself Tonight"!!!

So hot out the box! )

What do y'all think? I kinda love it! It's certainly not groundbreaking in any way and rings of both Madonna and Lady Gaga. But, whatever, it's NEW CHRISTINA!!! And it's crazy hot!!! There's no bad there! *g*

:: Johnny Weir is adorbs! But this is not news. The news part is that he skated a gorgeous new routine, 'Heartbroken,' for Ice Theater of New York.

Heartbroken )

Beautiful! *loves*

:: Also not news: Adam Lambert is gorgeous! He was featured in People's Beautiful People edition.

Beautiful in every single way. )

:: Adam also seems to like hugging is pretty little bassist, Tommy. I approve of this!

Because all straight bassist hug their gay bosses like this, right? )

I just love how touchy-feely they are with each other. Pretty boys being huggy and adorable!!! There is NO bad here!


:: Cheeks' picks for Hot 100 are featured on After Elton today. So cheeky! And, according to him, this is not a "wish list," but a "to do" list! Which, you know, just pings the hell outa my, uh, love of lists! Yeah, that's it! *g*
My state sucks. I'm relocating to Glam Nation. *nods*

Also, "glitter and loveliness for all" is now my LIFE MOTTO! *g* (New life motto brought to us courtesy of Adam's MySpace chat from London this morning.)

It's Fun Friday, dammit!!! So, here are some good-time fic recs for y'all!
