Seriously, check out this super hot, crazy talented chick and try not to be smitten:

Boombox Series // Jessie J from on Vimeo.

Love her! And I can't wait for her album to drop next month!
It's Fun Friday, the Music Edition! :)

:: (This one's for [ 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
:: Darren Criss. Wet and shirtless. Those pictures have totes been my happy place all week.

:: My newest musical obsession is Jessie J. I love her voice! If you haven't yet, check her out. "Do It Like A Dude" and "Price Tag" to get you started on the Jessie J love!

Also, I'd love to know who does her make-up. She always looks AMAZING.

:: I finally scored the Naked Palette from Urban Decay!!! That damn thing has been sold out for approximately forever! But they're available right now directly from Urban Decay, so, you know, go get it!!! (It's also entirely possible that I'm the only one who is ridiculously excited about this. If so, feel free to ignore my make-up related flailing. *g*)

:: I think it's appropriate to re-flail about [ profile] coolwhipdiva's awesome ticket mojo in scoring us VIP M&G tickets to the San Diego Glee Live! show because those things sold like hotcakes and are completely sold out before the general sale even starts tomorrow! But we have tickets!!!! *re-flail* :D

:: Speaking of awesome live music, Bruno Mars is touring this summer with Janelle Monae. (Tour dates.) Bruno Mars was absolutely fantastic live when I saw him at Martini Ranch a few months back; and I've heard nothing but amazing things about Janelle Monae's live performances. This should be one hell of a show.

:: Sunday is 1n10's Fresh Brunch!!! Good times for a good cause! There are some amazing Adam-related items up for auction (a Adam fan basket full of great stuff, a Lee Cherry framed picture signed by both Lee and Adam, a signed photo and calendar donated by Adam's mom) -- let me know if you're interested in making an on-line bid and I'll get you the info.

Yay! Fun Friday indeed! Tell me about the fun things in your Friday!

(P.S.: I waiting for news on a job. Everyone keep your fingers crossed that it's GOOD news!)
I found a professional resume writing service that I'm very pleased with. The company that I'm working with focuses specifically on the legal field, and the owner (and the person actually working on my resume) is a former attorney with tons of experience who is now doing human resources/recruiting for major law firms, so I'm confident that she'll be able to more than adequately handle the substantive tweaks that I want to make. Plus, she's been very helpful with just general job search ideas and strategies. I'm super excited about having a shiny, polished resume and this has translated to me feeling more optimistic about the whole job situation. Which, isn't exactly logical, because it's not likely that there will actually be many potential employers to impress with my shiny new resume until after the first of the year. But, whatever. Shiny new resume!!! Shiny new positive outlook!!! Win/win! :D

Other shiny things making me happy today include:

Pocket!Puppy!!! )

Y'all remember that adorable Australian, openly gay, gold medal diver from the 2008 Olympics? He was fabulous, right? And, of course, Johnny Weir is also fabulous, albeit on frozen water instead of diving into a pool of water. So seriously, Matthew Mitcham together with Johnny Weir is perhaps too much FABULOUS for this world to handle!!! )

✶ Also, yesterday, THIS HAPPENED!!! )

Today's dose of Holiday Happy with our Awesome Holiday Song of the Day! )

Baby It's Cold Outside -- Chris Colfer & Darren Criss (Glee Cast)

✶ And now I'm heading out to dinner to celebrate my brother's birthday!
The awesome thing about being unemployed? Mondays don't suck nearly as hard as when you need to crawl out of a weekend and into a Monday morning at the office. Silver linings, man! :D

So, since I'm doing the non-suck version of a Monday, I'm gonna talk about sparkly things! *beams*

For instance, the lovely weekend I just had! On Friday I went to see The Deathly Hallows, Part 1 with V on the huge Cine Capri screen! I loved it! I was so damn impressed with Daniel's, Emma's, and Rupert's acting too.

On Saturday I went to Bruno Mars' show and he was AMAZING (just the way he is! *g*) No, really, he killed it. If you get a chance to see him live, I highly recommend that you do.

And then, to cap off a weekend of musical awesomeness, I was able to go see Jerrod Niemann's show last night and it was so much fun! (I'll probably make a post about the show later, but the short version was: damn good times!)

But, wait! There are even MOAR SPARKLY THINGS!!!

✶ The PTB at Glee recently announced that the Glee Live show will hit the UK in the summer with the full cast, plus Darren Criss (Blaine) and Chord Overstreet (Sam). Which is awesome, but since I'm not in the UK not particularly awesome for me. But, and this is the sparkly part, they also hinted at good news for the U.S. coming soon! I'm choosing to believe that this means another Glee Live tour in the U.S. next summer!!! *bounces* Seriously, this show was pure JOY and if it tours again anywhere within a reasonable air fare, I'm totes there!

✶ Speaking of shiny Glee related news, I got my tickets for Darren Criss's show in L.A. at The Roxy on December 18th!!! That's the same night of Monte Pittman's show, but since Darren goes on earlier, I think that with a bit of fancy driving we can totally make both shows. That's the plan, anyway. Two Adam Lambert shows, Monte's solo show, and now Darren's show!!! There will be so much musical fabulosity packed into this trip to L.A.!!!

NIN's remastered re-issue of Pretty Hate Machine is going to include a cover of Queen's 'Get Down, Make Love'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can preview the LP, including the cover of "Get Down, Make Love" at that link. Sweet jam on crackers, I need this in my life now!!!

This AMAZING fanvid of Adam Lambert set to Scissor Sisters' Filthy Gorgeous is one of the best things to happen in my life!!!! )

*fans self* (And, bonus!sparkle, I'm going to see the Scissor Sisters in April in Atlanta!!!!!!!!)

Debauched!Adam is my favorite! )

✶ So, Johnny Weir is judging that new Skating with the Stars show??? Gods, that show looks as if it's going to be painful to watch. But I sort of feel compelled by Johnny's sheer fabulosity to make some room for it on my DVR. *laughs*

✶ I had an awesome workout with my trainer this morning. But I'm pretty sure that if I don't get up and take some ibuprofen now, I may not be able to move soon. *hurts so goooood*
[ profile] zoniduck and I went to see Bruno Mars last night at Martini Ranch, and he was AH-MAY-ZING! Not only is he adorable and wee and has a smile that just kind makes you swoon, but he's just a phenomenal musician backed up by a whole stage full of phenomenal musicians. Seriously, these boys were jammin'. Plus, he's just completely charismatic. I was charmed. *g*

The venue was about the size of my living room and was literally packed to the rafters. Seriously, people were standing on tables and packed wall to wall. And he only played about a 60 minute set. But he completely killed it and had everyone eating out of his hand. He could have easily played another 2 hours and had everyone enthralled.

And I just loved their sound. I have his CD and I really like it, but I think I loved his sound even more live (which, really, isn't something I can say about most artists). It was just really full and layered and funky in a totally cool, make you want to sway and dance kinda way.

His set included some of my favorites from "Doo-Wops and Hooligans," like The Other Side, Count On Me, The Lazy Song, Grenade, and, of course, Just The Way You Are. And he did some of his big collabs, like Billionaire and Nothin' On You, on which he had an amazing arrangement that started all stripped down and acoustic and then built up into full tempo. I loved it! He also did this crazy-ass mash-up of Michael Jackson's Billie Jean and the Whitestipe's Seven Nation Army which my brain still tells me would never work, but which totally did!

I didn't have my camera with me, so I wasn't able to take any pictures but here are a few vids I found online of last night's show )

Bottom line, Bruno Mars killed it! He sounds even more amazing live than in the studio. If he's gonna be anywhere near you, do yourself a favor and go see him!

And, 'cause I'm feeling AMAAAAAZING just the way I am *g*, I've got goodies for y'all. (But, really, buy the album; it is solid good music all the way through.)

Just The Way You Are
Count On Me
The Lazy Song
The random Jimmy Hendrix lyric in the title is courtesy of ADAM LAMBERT COVERING "PURPLE HAZE" IN HIS PARIS SHOW TONIGHT!!!!!!!! Yes, that news was totes caps worthy. *g* Oh, and, of course, he sang "scuse while I kiss this guy" instead. Haha! I love his crazy-ass self so damn much! I'm sure there will be vids shortly, so, you know, if you're as ridiculously excited as I am about Adam covering "Purple Haze" (and about Monte shredding like a mofo playing Hendrix), then check back here later for the video links.

Other random awesomeness for the day includes the following:

1. I had a great workout with my trainer this morning. It was freakin' ass-early in the morning, but it had been way toooo long since I'd worked out hard, and I gotta say, it felt damn good! Here's to being fierce and strong and healthy again!!! *fist pumps*

2. I started a Tumblr blog yesterday. Obviously I have too much time on my hands. *laughs* But I really don't know what to do with it or who to follow. So, audience participation time again! Two things. First, follow me! *bats eyelashes* And, second, link me to your favorite tumblrs! Ready? GO! :D

3. Have you heard the soundtrack for Burlesque yet? I loved it! Cher and Christina both sound AMAZING!!! Tracks 7 and 8 are particularly fabulous!

4. Have I mentioned lately how much I freakin' love Hawaii Five-O? Seriously, it's like candy! Without the calories! Sweeeeet! And this promo for the show is all kinds of FABULOUS!!!

But, they're right. It's not a bromance. Steve and Danny are LIFE PARTNERS!!! <333

5. I don't really have a 5, but I'm reserving this spot for the "Purple Haze" vids. Somewhere in France I'm sure there are dedicated fangirls berating their slow internet connections as they furiously work to upload their video treasures. And gods bless 'em.

ETA: Purple Haze vids have hit the web!!! EXCUSE ME WHILE I KISS THAT GUY!!!!! )

Don't forgot though, peeps, I need your Tumblr love and wisdom! *chin hands*
Ok, so just in case you've been living under a cozy rock for the past two years, let me just say that this job market truly sucks big, hairy, sweaty monkey balls. I've pretty much resigned my self to the fact that this situation is highly unlikely to change until after the first of the year. Even the few firms and companies that were hiring have put any of those efforts on hold through the holidays. So, what this means, other than the fact that my bank account is going to be a bleak wasteland for a while, is that I have a hell of a lot of time on my hands. And, quite frankly, this having nothing to do business is driving me INSANE! Seriously, I'm going nuts!

So, for the sake of my sanity and because y'all love me, I need your help! Suggestions, ideas, plans, projects! Give 'em to me!!! I've already contacted my local Pride office to volunteer, but they're sort of slow too until after the holidays. Other volunteer suggestions? Project ideas? Hobbies? TV shows to watch? Books to read? Origami instructions? OMG, anything!!! *desperate*

*deep breaths*

Ok, despite the above, or maybe because of the above, I'm really working on this whole "stay positive" mindset. Sparkling harder, and all that. So, here are some happy, sparkly things about my Wednesday.

✶ I decided to get back on track with the Take Better Care of Me Plan, so I got in touch with my trainer and we have an appointment for him to kick my ass a workout tomorrow morning! Also, I few months ago my SIL dropped my scale and broke it, and since I didn't have a scale, my mind somehow translated that into permission to not be accountable for my nutritional decisions at all. Not good, brain, not good at all! But, I've now replaced my scale and, as of today, I'm again journaling my nutritional intake. Accountability FTW!!!

✶ I was going to warn for TMI on this one, but, who am I kidding? This is me we're talking about! Anyway, I decided to treat myself to a new vibrator today! What??? This is totally a better plan for feeling better about my life than that half gallon of chunky chocolate chip ice cream in the freezer! Taking Better Care of Me Plan, indeed! *g*

✶ I'm making plans to go see the Scissor Sisters' show in Atlanta at The Tabernacle next April! I really want to see them and they aren't doing any solo shows near me, and a group of East Coast friends were planning on going, and I'm totes doing this as a show of faith that this whole job situation will be resolved in awesome fashion by that time! *nods* So, anyone want to come with? *bats eyelashes*

Adam's Acoustic Live EP drops on December 6th!!! *flails* I'm SO happy that we're getting an acoustic version of Aftermath!!! And Soaked!!! Also, the cover is ridiculously awesome!!! )


Nov. 16th, 2010 02:53 pm
So, I can't be he only one who has pretty much had this on repeat all week, right?

This has SO been my happy place all week, and I can't wait to see where the show goes with this storyline tonight!

I've also been ready pretty much every Kurt/Blaine fic written, and, lucky for you, I've waded through it all to bring you the gems! (Haha, nothing like a new pairing or new fandom to bring out all the bad fic, right?!) But, no worries, all of these are FABULOUS!

Kurt/Blaine fic gems! )

Also, have some more HAPPY: Glee Cast's TEENAGE DREAM.
>> #teamfeelingood )

>> [ profile] wendy's post of Awesome Exactly as You Are tunes!!! Lot's of fabulous, empowering music there! Go add your favorite I Am Awesome song to the list!

>> Decluttering!!! I'm cleaning out closets and corners and getting ready to sell all the extraneous stuff in my life tomorrow in a yard sale. Yay!

>> Pinkbert! )

>> Darren Criss and the Glee Cast's version of Teenage Dream!!! Happy place! *twirls* Also, [ profile] kurt_blaine for all your Kurt/Blaine fannish needs. You're welcome. *g*

Who else is #teamfeelingood with me today? Tell me what's fabulous about your Friday! *beams*
Ok, so, I'll say it, yesterday sucked. And not in the positive, life-affirming kind of way. I now live in a state that has actually elected Jan Brewer as governor; the Democrats lost control of the House; and people like Rand Paul were elected to the Senate. Not. A. Good. Day.

Today I had to trek to Tucson and back to pick up my grandmother. That drive is brutal. And all I got out of it was a piña colada Eeegee. What I'm basically getting at here, is that, given the past two days, I could use some cheering up. So, how 'bout some random bits of awesomeness?

I know I always talk about Adam around here, but, in case I hadn't made it clear, let me say that Kris Allen is fabulous too!!! Only, you know, fabulous in plaid instead of glitter. )

Also awesome? Pink's new song, "F**kin' Perfect"!!! It's, well, FUCKING PERFECT!!! (Too awesome for asterisks!) If you haven't heard it yet, you should. You can check it out HERE.

And while we're on the subject of Pink's awesomeness, have you seen her video for "Raise Your Glass"? I dig it. *nods*

Raise Your Glass! )

Both of these It Gets Better videos were awesome in totally different ways: beautiful voices, beautiful faces, beautiful message (and one green frog). )

You know what else is awesome? The rest of that Eeegee from earlier today made even betterer with the addition of a generous amount of Malibu rum!!! Delish! :D

Ok, me and my rum laced Eeegee are feeling better about life now. *g* What's happening with y'all?
Monday is being an obstructionist bitch, and I can't watch this a 100 times like it so deserves to be watched, or flail over all the magical people partying like it's the last day of Burning Man on my computer screen, or squee over the outfits and the makeup and the general FABULOUSNESS of this video. But I'm putting it here so I can come back and do all those things later, but also so that y'all can do all those things too! Watch this people! Spot the Cheeks! Did you see Cassidy? How 'bout Alisan? And Allison??? They're all there! And more!!! And Adam looks and sounds amazing! Eeeee!!! I love this video!

So what do y'all think of Christina Aguilera's "Bionic"? I had to drive out to the west end of hell for court this morning (2 1/2 hour round trip commute! Ugh!) so i had plenty of time to listen to it, and I gotta say, I'm really diggin' on it. It's not perfect, but, in all, it sure as hell is entertaining. And, seriously, she still has got one of the most amazing voices ever. I think I'll have to listen to it a few more times to pick out my favorites, but some of the stand outs right now are the slower songs like "I Am" and "You Lost Me," although I'm kinda loving "Glam" and "Vanity" too.

And today was truly the day of the diva, because in addition to finally some new music from Xtina, we also got Lady Gaga's video for "Alejandro." On a side note, Rhyan cracked me up the other night when I hear her walking down the hall singing "Ale-alejandro!" It was perhaps the most awesome thing ever! She loves Gaga as much as she loves Adam. Truly that child has been learning some things from her Tía! *g*

I don't know, though, if I'll be showing her this video. But while possibly not appropriate for children, it is nevertheless AMAZING!

Thank you, Gaga, for bringing the HOT. Please feel free to include entire regiments of barely clothed boys (in fishnets and heels! and tied up!!!) in all your videos!
Man, it's gorgeous outside. I wish I could drag my stacks of files outside to enjoy the sunshine. I should take advantage of the beautiful weather while it lasts, because it won't be long now before I'm complaining about Arizona's hellish summer heat. Sadly I'm stuck in my office looking at the lovely day happening outside my window.

But even though I can't play in it, the sunshiney awesomeness happening outside has me in a great mood! Or maybe that's the coffee I had this morning in an otherwise coffee-less couple of weeks? In any event, I AM HAPPY! And, because I'm awesome like that, I'm gonna share my happy mood with y'all. *beams*

Happy Thing The First: Strawberries! Yummy ripe strawberries! I've got a whole little basket full of them to munch on throughout the day and they taste like the sunshine outside my window. Delish!

Happy Thing The Second: Shoes! Shiny new shoes! I just got these and I love them! I also got two other pairs for work that are quite lovely. But, OMG, I love that first pair so much!

Happy Thing The Third: Baseball! Well, specifically, Chris Snyder!!! I'm not talking to my D'backs until they crawl their way back over .500, but my bb Chris is another story. He's smokin' hot with his bat right now (3-run HR yesterday!) and I'm so incredibly proud of him. And, seriously, if they start talking about trading him again, I will NOT be responsible for my actions. But we're talking happy, so, CHRIS!!! *loves*

Happy Thing The Fourth: Awesome music happenings! While I'm still more than a little frustrated that they haven't announced Adam's full tour schedule, tickets for his second OC show go on pre-sale tomorrow. And more Adam is always a good thing! Also, in case anyone missed the memo, Adam is cute. Just ask Rhyan who crawled next to me last night and demanded to watch Adam videos and then informed me that "A-lam is cute!" *g* Even though she's just two, she certainly knows her cute.

A-lam IS cute! )

Yup, definitely cute. Or, you know, FUCKING GORGEOUS! But if the two year old comes out with "A-lam is fucking gorgeous!" her parents may not be happy with me. So, we'll just stick with "A-lam is cute." *g*

Speaking of the pretty, dear gods, Adam's bassist Tommy is ridiculously pretty! )

The happy-making musical happenings continue: I also scored tickets to see Kris Allen when he opens for Barenaked Ladies here in July! Pocket Idol!!! I'm kind of ridiculously excited about finally getting to see him perform live!

And since they added a second Glee Live show, I was able to get tickets for me and my mom as her Mothers' Day present. GLEE!!! So very happy-making!

And more! [ profile] without_me was able to score tickets for us to see The Wall in November! Yay!

*breathes* OMG so much awesome music in my future!!!

And if all that wasn't enough musical awesomeness, today Trent Reznor announced the release of a new song with his new band How To Destroy Angels and it's hauntingly beautiful! I didn't even realize he was making new music, but apparently he is, and it's amazing!

ETA: More How To Destroy Angels! )

Happy Thing The Fifth: ME!!! *beams* I'm gonna brag on myself for a moment. Because I can. *g* And also because these are definitely part of the happy. First, my online food journal informed me today that I've logged on for 65 days in a row. That means that for the past 65 days I've been eating mindfully. For the past 65 days I've made conscious, deliberate decisions about what to feed my body; for the most part those have been healthy choices, but even when they haven't been, I've been aware of them and accountable for them. That right there is success! Second, I don't think I've mentioned this here, but last Friday I had my one year review. Holy cow, it's been a year! But, more importantly, it's been a damn good year! My review was positively glowing and came with a very nice raise and plans for long-term success and reward here. Job satisfaction is definitely happy-making!
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*


Apr. 19th, 2010 01:22 pm
Mercury went retrograde yesterday, which, technically speaking means: oh shit, hold on tight, it's gonna be a riiiide. So, you know, fun times ahead! *g*

On the plus side, though, there has been a plethora of awesomeness announced in the past couple of days!

For example, Russell Crowe is stranded in L.A. and decided to pass the time by joining Twitter! I find this highly amusing. Even more so imagining [ profile] azewewish rolling her eyes in general Twitter-related annoyance. *laughs* But the BEST part about Russell's recent dive into the Twitter world was his announcement this weekend that TOFOG is (a) releasing a new album around August!!!! and (b) touring the U.S. this summer!!!! *flails* It looks as if the plan is to do a 10 year anniversary show at Stubb's in Austin in August, and from there hit various cities! Chicago, Portland, San Fransisco, and L.A. were specifically named! I am so all over Austin, and L.A., and maybe even Portland and/or San Fransisco!!! Eeeeee!!! TOFOG!!! Live! Sooooon!!!! I cannot wait!!!

And while I was still amidst my flail over TOFOG, [ profile] azewewish texted me with the news that MUSE has finally decided to do an L.A. show!!! They have, in fact, 3 So-Cal shows in September. San Diego and Anaheim are mid-week, so I'm not sure I can make those. But I am definitely on board for the L.A. show!!! They were spectacular and I am thrilled to be able to catch them again on this tour! Exciting!!!

There are also plans in the works for catching Roger Waters' The Wall 2010 show in L.A. with [ profile] without_me in late November!!! *flails more*

And, and, AND!!!! Adam Lambert finally announced some summer tour dates!!!! Unfortunately there is so far only one date on the west coast. It looks as if I'll be at the OC Fair in late July! I'm hoping that there will be more dates/cities posted soon. *crosses fingers* Otherwise, anyone wanna go to Atlantic City with me??? (I so wish I were kidding about that!)

Ahhh!!! So much amazingness!!!


Mar. 30th, 2010 03:03 pm
I refuse to hear myself whine about how crazy work is anymore. In much the same way that the sky is blue and Jensen Ackles is pretty and Ricky Martin is gay, it just IS and that's not going to be changing for a while, or, you know, maybe ever. So let's talk about news that's actually news. *g*

Like baseball staring in 5 days 20 hours and 50 minutes!!!!!! Sadly, for the first time in MANY years, I won't be able to make it to Opening Day. :( But, BASEBALL!!! It'll be back and my joy will be complete once more! :D

Since I got my laptop back from ICU, I've been using Google Chrome for my browser and I absolutely love it! And you're probably wondering how I made the mental jump from baseball to browsers, right? Well, it's because my Chrome tool bar has an extension on it called Baseball Search that lets me simultaneously search several sites for player information! I just click the little baseball and type in a name and POOF! All the info I could ever want! It's NIFTY!!! So, is anyone else using Google Chrome? Thoughts? Experiences? Sharing is caring, people! :)

And now for another mental leap, this one with even a more tenuous foothold than the last one: Christina Aguilera's new single 'Not Myself Tonight' is now available in full on her site. It sounds AMAZING! I'm so excited to have new music from her!

Also, have some unrelated and random awesomeness:
- Eco-friendly condoms!

- French ELLE's first 'curvy' issue features the gorgeous Tara Lynn. Unf.


Feb. 1st, 2010 01:00 pm
It's already been determined that this month is going to be FABULOUS, so it's been rechristened "fabruary." *g*

Speaking of fabulous, did y'all see Lady Gaga's performance with Elton John at the Grammy's last night? AH.MAY.ZING!

Pink's performance was absolutely incredible too. )

And that's basically all I have to say about the Grammy's. At least all I have to say that's positive. Other than, Adam looked GORGEOUS and SHINY!

But, forget the Grammy's and the fact that apparently our musical standards are being set by 13 year old girls, can we talk for a moment about THIS:

This is apparently a newly unearthed Adam/Brad picture that is quite possibly THE HOTTEST THING EVER! Good godDAMN. *bites lip*

Here's another because they are just too pretty not to share. )

But, seriously, those two were just so freakin' hot together. Also, is someone writing the Adam/Brad/Tommy threesome fic after Monte's tweet on Saturday??? Please tell me this is happening.

Ok. I have to run to court in about two minutes. So, I leave y'all to discuss the crazy levels of sexy and hot and dear gods, YES in these pictures. This week is kind of nuts for me, but I don't mind so much as Friday I'll be heading to L.A. for a weekend of Mardi Gras style shenanigans which will include Cassidy Haley playing in the Living Room of Acoustic Awesomeness (OMGYAY!!!! *twirls*) and football style shenanigans with a Super Bowl Party at Casa Hooker (Geaux Saints!)!!! See? I told you this month was going to be fabulous!!!

sick day

Jan. 19th, 2010 10:58 pm
I've pretty much been feeling like crap all week. Yesterday I skipped out of the office a few hours early to come home and faceplant on my bed, where I didn't move until about two this afternoon. My throat still feels as if someone took a grater to it and I'm sporting one hell of an annoying cough, but at least the fever and raging headache are both gone. Which is good, because I seriously don't have time for this shit.

All of the crazy weather that hit L.A. earlier is now making a muddy mess of my backyard. So, on a sick and dreary day, how do I decide to entertain myself? I decide it's a good time to finally watch Milk. Dear gods, I did not have the emotional fortitude for that today! Don't get me wrong, I thought the movie was fantastic. I, however, was a complete wreck. The high fever might have had something to do with that though. *g*

In less dreary news, did y'all see Adam Lambert on Oprah today? Seriously, that boy is gorgeous. And he charmed the pants off of Oprah. Well, not literally. *shudder* But she was obviously delighted by him. As well all are, dear Oprah, as we all are.

Vids of Adam's Oprah performances. Mainly for MY entertainment. *g* )

Ok, moving on now.

So, all my L.A. chicas, Cassidy Haley is playing at the Viper Room on Friday. I'm kinda counting on y'all to go and TELL ME ALL ABOUT IT!!! And someone tell me again why I don't live in L.A. yet??? Oh, yeah, that pesky bar exam thing. Blah. Professional licensing requirements. So annoying!

But I digress. Cassidy Haley. This Friday, January 22nd, in the downstairs lounge of The Viper Room, at 8 p.m.; tickets are $7 at the door. L.A. represent!

Since we're on the topic of live music, what the every loving fuck is with Muse and their apparent determined refusal to announce an L.A. show??? They announced a few more dates today, NONE of which included L.A. or anywhere in SoCal! They're headlining Coachella, which is all well and good, but there are few things I'd like to do LESS than sweat my way through a music festival in the middle of the damn desert! They did announce a Vegas show on April 10th, that is currently under serious consideration. I'd still like to go to New Orleans later that month to see Cassidy, so I'll have to see if I can make both work. But, really, Muse, why the scorn for L.A.??? *baffled*

And since I'm going to blame the after effects of the fever for the incoherency of this post anyway, let's clear out some of my tabs and do some fic recs, shall we? *g*

  • Hush (Adam/Tommy; NC-17) by [ profile] cjmarlowe. CJ wrote this for ME!!! As part of the amazing fandom fundraising efforts for Haiti this week. And, dear heavens, this is just HOT. It's a gagging fic, which isn't always my thing, because I'm all about the filthy talk, but, yeah, um, she really makes it work. Hot. I mentioned that, right?

  • Only Take What You Can Carry (Adam/Kris, NC-17) by [ profile] seperis. Man, this fic takes you on a ride. And, really, that's the only way to describe it. It was a long, winding, fantastic trip. Sometimes I thought I knew where we were going; sometimes I was a little lost and disoriented; but I was ALWAYS completely entranced by the trip.

  • Hot Mess (Adam/Tommy, NC-17) by [ profile] janescott. Tommy in a silk teddy. Do you really need to know more? Yeah, I didn't think so. *g*

  • Brand New Shoes (Adam/Kris, R) by [ profile] jerakeen. I've been doing some catching up on some of Jerakeen's fics that I somehow missed, so y'all might have already read this. But it was new to me, and I loved it!

  • That Old Black Magic (Adam/Kris, PG-13) by [ profile] jerakeen. Another new to me fic. This is just fantastic, though. She spins out a long and thoroughly satisfying story that is just magic.

  • La Mer (Adam/Kris, NC-17) written by [ profile] jerakeen for [ profile] reel_idol. Um, mermaids??? Yeah, I didn't think so either. But, it was Jerakeen, and as you can tell from this list alone, I tend to love just about everything she writes, so I gave it a shot. And I'm glad that I did because it was DELIGHTFUL!

So, yeah, sleep, read fic, and watch movies that made me cry. That about sums up my week so far. How's you're week going? *g*
