So, yesterday, this happened:

Sweet jam on crackers! SCRUFF!!!!!! I can't even comprehend his hotness right now. *bites lip*

MOAR SCRUFFY HOT DARREN!!!! )

Dear Darren: I don't know how, but you are getting like exponentially hotter. Please continue. Appreciatively, Me.
The European leg of the Glam Nation tour has been an abundance of fabulosity, as previously documented here and here. And we all thought, surely there's no way to top this short of someone getting naked on stage! But then, while, sadly everyone has remained clothed, there was Amsterdam. And the bar for fabulosity was again moved higher. And by higher, I mean, quite literally, higher. *g*

But first, to give these images the proper loltastic context, Adam's Amsterdam show was in a venue that looked suspiciously like a re-purposed church. And, let me just say, this is totes my kinda religion!

Photobucket

And then, well, really, they were in Amsterdam after all...

Purple haze, motherfuckers! )

Seriously, is it any wonder I love this crazy son of a bitch so damn much? *g*
So, the other day I posted this picspam of fabulosity from the Glam Nation shows in Europe. And I thought that we had reached the pinnacle of mind-blowingly hot stage antics with the masturbatory and fingering gesturing, but then today Adam takes the stage in Stuttgart, Germany, and THIS happens:

Photobucket

JFC on a cracker!!!

More sexy shenanigans in Germany! )
There have been some truly fantastic pictures and gifs lately of Adam, the shows, and the Glam Troupe as they leave a trail of glitter throughout Europe. So I thought I'd share them with y'all and that way I can finally close all the tabs I currently have open. Win/win!

fall into the glitter )
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???
All I really wanted out of life today was a fruit smoothing for lunch. But I had to go through three different blending mechanisms before finding one that would work! Why so difficult, Life???

I did, however, eventually attain my fruit smoothie and it was delish! So I guess life is good today. This, I suppose, is the benefit of having such low expectations. *g*

Now that I've reached the peak of my day with a fruit smoothie, the rest of it seems significantly less awesome: I have to tighten up my resume and start the dreadful process of looking for a damn job. Oh, and I have to go grocery shopping and pay bills. See? I told you it would be all down hill from the fruit smoothie!

So, before I get to all that, let's talk about things that are BETTERER! Like the AMAZING anti-hate protest that happened at Adam Lambert's concert this weekend in Springfield, MO! The idiots at Westboro Baptist Church had announced that they'd be protesting Adam's show. But instead fans and counter-protesters showed up with their awesome signs and in the end the hate-mongers didn't een bother to show up and it turned into a celebration of love and tolerance and freedom of expression and all the awesome things that Adam stands for! Adam even went out before his show to thank them and autograph their counter-protest signs! It was pretty damn fabulous to watch unfold!

And then Adam took the stage and THIS HAPPENED! )

I'm not sure how it is even possible, but the pretty factor was ridiculously high this weekend. )

And, well, hi, HELLOOOO THERE, Adam! *g*

Photobucket

Speaking of, um, that view, I have four Glam Nation shows in September -- Houston, New Orleans, and two Atlanta shows! And except for the last Atlanta show which is GA, I have front row center seats for all of them!!!!!!!!! Eeeee!!!!!! Life is going to be a hell of a lot better than a fruit smoothie in September!!!
Life has gone from good crazy to just plain crazy this week, but I'm steadfastly refusing to concentrate on anything but the sparkly until next week. So, let's talk about Adam! *beams*

I flew into Burbank on Tuesday to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] coolwhipdiva for the two shows in Orange County. We had so much fun!!! On Tuesday night I had upgraded our tickets to 5th row, center, in the pit. The seats in the pit were crammed in so tight you could barely move, so it was a good thing that security let those seated there rush the stage and stand at the barricade, otherwise it would have been impossible to dance. And, really, how anyone can sit through this show without being compelled to get up out of their seats and shake their ass is beyond my ability to comprehend. Believe me, J and I danced. *g*

Costa Mesa is the closest that this tour is getting to L.A. (at least as the schedule currently stands), so it was very much a hometown crowd for Adam and all the band and dancers and they all had lots of family and friends in the crowd. And, OMG, they all looked so freakin' HAPPY. Adam had this silly grin on his face for a good part of the show! And, even though the sound mix was a little off that night (hello! I'd really like to be able to actually hear Monte during his guitar solo!), it was still just so much FUN watching them have so much FUN!

Costa Mesa - July 27, 2010 )

On Wednesday, [livejournal.com profile] _lisalisa_ joined us. The shows were part of the OC Fair, so we spent the afternoon at the fair, checking out the exhibits, avoiding anything fried on a stick, drinking frozen margaritas, and just catching up and enjoying some much needed hanging out time! It was awesome! Before the show, we found a table and some wine, and I did up our make-up and glitterfied the three of us in the middle of the fair! We were very sparkly! *g*

I had an AMAZING view. I made friends with the security folks on my side of the pit and they let me stand at the edge of the barricade on Tommy's side of the stage, actually kind of between the barricade and the stage. The sound mix was thankfully much better on Wednesday night. And everyone was just on FIRE! Monte jumped into the pit for one of his guitars solos. Tommy was looking especially pretty. Adam's vocals were stunning. It was fantastic! And Adam's encore of Whole Lotta Love that night is my favorite next to Fantasy Springs. Just incredible!

Costa Mesa - July 28, 2010 )

Costa Mesa was DAMN GOOD TIMES!!! Now I need to get ready so I can make my flight to San Diego in a few hours. [livejournal.com profile] coolwhipdiva has promised me tequila shots and believe me when I tell you I can use them. Tomorrow I fly back home, meet up with [livejournal.com profile] editorzon at the airport, and then dance until my feet fall off at the Lady Gaga concert! And then on Sunday, another Glam Nation show here in Tempe. After that, I'm planning on sleeping for days. As soon as that happens, I'll come back and fill y'all in on how life outside of Glam Nation is sucking hard. But, for now, I'm gonna get my glitter on, hang with my girls, drink myself silly, and dance until I just can't anymore! *nods*
I think that my show recaps are pretty much going to go something like this every time: ADAM LAMBERT BLEW MY FUCKING MIND INTO ITTY BITTY BLISSED OUT GLITTERY BITS!!!!! AGAIN!!!

I had such a blast in Denver, mostly because I got to share it all with [livejournal.com profile] coolwhipdiva. We had AMAZING seats -- dead center in the fifth row. J is really channeling the ticket mojo for Glam Nation. *g* We chatted up all the folks around us who were all kinds of good times! I was especially amused by the cute gay boy behind us who was like this crazy mash up of Kris Allen's looks (plaid shirt included!) and Cheeks' personality (his snarky one liners were definitely for our entertainment!). J and I danced our asses off and basically had the best time ever! J wrote all about our time in Denver and the show HERE. I'll just have y'all go read what she said, reiterate my very eloquent and effusive show recap above, and get right on to the pictures. *g*

Allison Iraheta. Have I mentioned that this girl can ROCK??! )

Voodoo.

Adam and Tommy during "Fever" (no kiss, but they still crank up the flirt factor):

Adam during "Sleepwalker." I love this picture of him!

Monte shreds the hell outa the guitar!

I wish this picture was sharper. But, oh my heart, look at his FAAAACE!!!! His SMILE fills my heart with happy!!!!
Photobucket

Seriously, Adam. How so pretty, bb? *loves*
Photobucket

Adam!!!

Thumbnails of high-res versions of all my Denver photos. )

After the show the good times continued when J and I met up with [livejournal.com profile] rhythmsextion for drinks. She is a complete sweetheart!!! It was so much fun hanging out with her and chatting and just generally having a fantabulous time! In short, Denver was FABULOUS!

countdown

Jun. 7th, 2010 01:45 pm
33 days until my first Glam Nation show!!!! *flails*

I did all of my trip planning this weekend, booked all my flights, made all my hotel reservations. Which practically guarantees that they'll now announce new dates for L.A., Phoenix and New Orleans, and completely fuck up all my plans! *laughs*

But, as of now, this is what my July Glam Nation plans look like:

>> Saturday, July 10th: Louisville, KY, with a bonus Sunday visit with Carole and Jerry who I haven't seen in more than 3 years!

>> Saturday, July 17th: Denver, CO. I'm flying in on Friday night and staying through Sunday so that I can enjoy a nice visit in Denver. Any of my Denver flisters want to meet for coffee/drinks/general fangirling???

>> Friday, July 23rd: San Francisco, CA. My mom is going with me and we're going to spend the rest of the weekend taking in the city! I'm SO looking forward to this!

>> Tuesday & Wednesday, July 27th 28th: Costa Mesa, CA (OC Fair). Finally a show with MY GIRLS!!!! [livejournal.com profile] coolwhipdiva and I will be going to both and [livejournal.com profile] _lisalisa_ will be joining us on Wednesday. I'm sure there will also be something fried on a stick, since it is a fair. *g*

>> Friday, July 30th: San Diego, CA. [livejournal.com profile] coolwhipdiva will again be rocking this show with me, as will [livejournal.com profile] llandaffaz. Good times!!!

Whew! That's 6 shows in 5 cities in 4 weeks! Awesomeness!!!

The tour started Friday in Willkes-Barre, PA. I'm trying to resist the tour vids until after my first show (it's hard to do!), but I did enjoy the general flailing on my Twitter feed, and if these pictures are any indication, the show is AMAZING!

Glam Nation: First Look )


Goddamn that looks FABULOUS! It needs to be July already!!!
A few days ago [livejournal.com profile] azewewish posted a Hot Chicks with Magnificent Racks picspam and it is, like the women it features, a thing of beauty! It seemed to me only appropriate that we continue with the Hot Chick Appreciation. Because, really, there can never be enough waxing poetic about beautiful women. So here are some of my current girlcrushes. Enjoy! And, by all means, feel free to continue the Hot Chick Appreciation by sharing pictures of your favorites! *g*

Curve: The loveliest distance between two points. ~Mae West. )

Well, now that was a pleasant way to spend a Saturday morning. *g*

gridlock

Jan. 3rd, 2010 06:06 pm
Since my New Year's post is flocked to protect the innocent shameless, here's the version that's fit public consumption, which mostly consists of photos and some assorted squee.

Gridlock was a damn good time! )
I entered a Hermit Year back in August and the year is so far proving to be indeed hermit-y. Of course, some of the isolation may be due to the unexpected surgery, recovery period, and being buried with work as a result. But whatever the reason, I've felt like burrowing lately. I just want to be by myself, get my house in order, finish projects, resume a sitting practice, spend time reading and thinking and just being. Unfortunately, it's been hard to find the time to actually do any of those things. I definitely feel very hermit-like though. Which is a good thing because it's making me rearrange things a bit so that I have the alone time I need right now; but it's also rubbing a little raw against the extrovert part of myself and I'm finding myself feeling a little disconnected from people. Which is a little sad making! So, um, connect with me! Tell me what's happening in your world! Share what's making you happy! Or sad. Whatever. Just talk to me! *beams*

But something that definitely isn't sad making (ha! how's that for a pseudo-segue?) are all the wonderful Adam news bits that have been flying around my flist today! He'll be performing his first single at the AMA's on November 22!!! The full version of "Time for Miracles" will be available this weekend!!! The video for "Time for Miracles" will debut before Michael Jackson's "This Is It" documentary!!! All of this is very happy making!!! As are these pictures of Adam announcing the AMA nominations this morning:



MOAR HAPPY-MAKING ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! )


ETA: Found more pics! There can never be too many Adam pics! )

There was also this interview with producer Rob Cavallo who gushes about Adam's singing range and describes some of the music they're putting together and OMG I NEED ADAM'S MUSIC IN MY LIFE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And in other happy making Idol news, yesterday we got to see the cover of Kris Allen's upcoming CD. )

Seriously. He's just a tiny bundle of hotness. I don't understand how this is even possible. His mouth is just begging for Adam Jim someone to do really obscene things to it.
UGH. That about sums up my morning. My head and my uterus are in a fierce competition to see which can KILL ME FIRST! Needless to say, I am less than amused by these shenanigans.

But what has been amusing me greatly are the adorable pictures of Adam out with Drake at Pink's concert last night!


Precious!!!


More adorable pictures! )

He looks so happy!!! And, thankfully, Drake left his collection of hideous tanks at home and went for the classic wife beater with suspenders look. *laughs* Whatever. I think they look adorable together. And, it makes me happy to know that Adam is finally back in L.A. where he can fuck his adorable but tragically dressed boyfriend as often as he likes. Because, seriously, a boy who looks like that should be getting sexed up often and well.

Also ridiculously happy-making was the video footage from the Ford event earlier in the day yesterday where Kris and Adam did a duet of Gnarles Barkley's "Crazy." So presh!!! Man, I'm going to miss seeing these two together.



Before they sang, they did a brief Q&A where they talked about Kris helping Adam do his hair, and Adam introducing Kris to a whole new world of beauty products, and Kris sneaking in to try some of the products, and Kris wanting the question card with hearts drawn around Adam's name!!! Too much cute to handle!!!

In related ramblings, Kris's single is supposed to drop on Monday, and rumor has it that Adam's single is a song called "Strut" that he co-wrote with Kara DioGuardi. STRUT!!! I'm ridiculously excited about Adam singing a song called "Strut"! I mean, really, how PERFECT is that title for him? There's no drop date for his single yet, but I imagine it'll be within a couple of weeks of Kris's single. Eeeee!!!

Ok. The headache and cramps are still waging battle for ultimate domination, but at least my mood has improved! I'm supposed to go to a baby shower today for one of the girls from work, but I think I'm going to bail on it because I really don't feel up to it. I might instead go do some much needed shoe shopping later in the day. Then again, I might not get anything more productive than a puzzle done today, as I'm watching The Nieces. For now, though, more coffee and ibuprofen are definitely in order. *nods*

ETA )
Last night I went to the American Idols show in Glendale. I've never been to an AI show, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The crowd was much more diverse than I thought it would be. My mom was very happy to note that she was by far not the oldest in the crowd. I had two extra tickets because I bought the closer ones, so my sister in law and Rianna went with us. This was Rianna's first concert and she had a great time! My mom, awesome grandma that she is, gave Rianna her fifth row seat at intermission, so for most of the show Rianna and I rocked it out from the fifth row. She totally got into it, dancing on her seat, and waving her little light stick during Kris' "Hey Jude." So much fun! So, before I get distracted by Adam's shininess, here's a picture of me and Rianna at intermission:

Photobucket


American Idols...10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5... )

In truth, though, this show doesn't really get started until the second half with rocker chick Allison Iraheta. She rocked the hell outa it! That is one talented kid and I can't wait to watch her grow into her own.

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket


Next was Danny. Thankfully there had been plenty of margaritas before hand. Tequila makes anything better. *nods* I'm not sure that man could be more obnoxiously annoying if he tried. And, really, if I had wanted to hear a sermon, I would have broken my 20 year religious abstinence period and gone to church. I have some pictures of the Gokster, because my co-worker loves him and I promised her. But I really can't be bothered with the html.

And let's not kid ourselves, the only reason you can get me to willingly sit through Danny Gokey attempting to salsa dance followed by his self-righteous preaching, is to get to ADAM!!!!!!!!!!! The place went ballistic even before the lights went out on Danny and the crowd was on its feet through his entire set.

Dear gods, how is he even possible??? He's obviously a gift from the gods. He has a magically glowing crotch afterall. Adam's heavenly penis is mesmerizing! *stares and stares*

Photobucket


Adam did awesomely nasty things to his mic stand during "Whole Lotta Love," he was pitch-perfect during "Starlight," he broke my heart with "Mad World," he and Allison rocked the shit out of "Slow Ride," and he just KILLED the Bowie medley of "Life on Mars"/"Fame"/"Let's Dance". We got a "get up and dance, bitches!" and we got "baby" during WLL. His jacket was fucking fierce. Seriously, I don't think I've ever seen a more aggressive article of clothing in my life. Adam just commanded the hell out of that stage. That boy is just sex on two legs and every bit of that innate sexuality is in his performance. I cannot wait until his record comes out and he's booking a solo tour. Like I've told [livejournal.com profile] _lisalisa_, I will definitely travel wherever necessary to see Adam perform as often as possible.

I have approximately a bazillion pictures of Adam. Hope y'all enjoy! (Click the thumbnail for the high-res pic.)

*bites lip* Yeah. That was Adam. I think it's appropriate to say that Adam shivermadizzles me.

And while Adam is one hell of a hard act to follow, I've gotta say that the Pocket Idol really holds his own. My appreciation for Kris Allen took a while to develop. I wasn't a fan of his on the show. But I gotta say, not only do I think he's freakin' adorable, but I really enjoy him as an artist now. He's got a quiet...I don't even know what it is. It's definitely understated where Adam is over the top; maybe even more sensually appealing where Adam is just flat out raw sexuality. I haven't even figured out what it is, but I like me some Kris!

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

More Adorable Pocket Idol! )


After the show we noticed that the barricades were set up right next to where we had parked. It was kismet. We had to stay to try to grab an autograph or two. It was about an hour and a half before the Idols came out. It was rushed and it was crowded and it was fucking hot, but in the end I managed to get Kris to sign my ticket, Allison to sign Rianna's, and Adam to sign my issue of his Rolling Stone spread. Awesome!!! And totally worth the wait.

I snapped a few pics on the barricade, but it was really too crowded and too rushed to do more than get your item shoved under their Sharpie for a quick signature before they were three feet down the line again.

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

To summarize: Adam is hot. Kris is adorable. They both rocked it out. And I can't wait for their material to come out and their solo tours announced. Oh, yeah, and there were no zombies. *g*

I took about 250 pictures in all; they can all be found [here]. Enjoy and use as you will. :)
In less than 30 hours I will be watching Adam Lambert rock it out on stage and I cannot even textually render how ridiculously excited I am about this!!! This is what awaits me tomorrow night!!! )

So, as we all are aware (and if you're not, then you obviously haven't been paying attention 'round these parts), Adam can out glam and out glitter the best of them. Spiked dog collar. Need I say more??? )

But, make no mistake about it, Adam Lambert is one hot mother fucker, even without the guyliner, glitter, and glam. No. Really. Not since Jensen Ackles outgrew his twink stage, have freckles been this damn sexy! )

Well, now. I hope that was good for y'all. It was certainly good for me. *fans self*

To summarize: Adam Lambert is fucking hot, with or without the glam.

Can it be Monday night now, please???
Friday my brother, mom, Rianna, Rhyan, and I all went to the D'backs/Dodgers game. The girls were all decked out in their D'backs gear. The cameraman loved Rhyan and Rianna because we were on the jumbo tron 5 times during the course of the game! Seriously, every time I looked up, there we were. It was a bit disconcerting after a while. Rianna, of course, thought it was the coolest thing ever. And Rhyan was just busy lapping up all the attention she could from everyone around us. Good times!

Family night at the ballpark! )

It was a good game, with the D'backs winning it 9-4. In the first week of season, the only two games that the D'backs have won have been the two games that I've been at. Obviously, I NEED to be at the ballpark more often! For the good of the team, of course. *g*

We had great seats, just behind the home dugout. So, naturally, I took lots of pictures. Although I didn't take as many as I normally would have, as I was trying to keep up with a very wiggly 1 year old who was hamming it up for the jumbo tron!

Hot baseball players!!! )

Saturday was spent working. I'm going to be in trial for the next two weeks, staring Tuesday, so I spent most of the day at the jail going over last minute details with my client. For the record, spending the afternoon at the county jail is NOT my idea of a fun Saturday! It was an awesomely rainy and cloudy day, too -- the kind where you just want to curl up with a good book and laze about the house. We don't get very many of those 'round these parts, so it felt like a wasted opportunity. *shrugs* Oh, well. You do what you gotta do.

Today, however, was significantly better as I decided to ignore work for most of the day! We celebrated Easter in our non-religious, candy-filled way at a park. Lots of good food, kiddos having fun with their Easter egg hunt, more desserts than should be legal. Good times! :)

Rianna and Rhyan in their pretty Easter dresses! )

I hope y'all had a great weekend too!
[livejournal.com profile] wendy sent me some surprise!happy day thoughts this morning, and I think they worked, because today turned out much more pleasant than I was expecting. The craptastic morning in court that I was anticipating was certainly busy but went much smoother than I had thought it would.

Then I indulged in a MUCH needed nap this afternoon, and I felt about 200% less crabby after ward. Yay for sleep! Plus, my back which has been a ball of painful spasms all week, has felt really good today. Yay for painlessness!

I also received a whole bunch of books that I recently ordered from Amazon, including the first two books of the King Raven Trilogy. New books make me happy!!! \o/

I spent the afternoon getting quite a bit of work done, while I enjoyed the free MLB Extra Innings baseball coverage that's gracing my t.v. this week. I got to watch the Rangers take the Indians, and there was just SO MUCH PRETTY involved in that baseball game! Ian Kinsler was on fire, man. And, Grady mustered the power of the dimples for a very nice two run homer in the 3rd. Josh was HOT as only Josh can be. And, while Salty wasn't playing, he was lookin' mighty fine just sitting in the dugout! *g* And, proving why I could never buy the Extra Innings subscription and still expect to have any sort of life that wasn't watching baseball, I also watched the Padres pull off a nice win over the Dodgers. *laughs* Man, if I had all this baseball on my screen all the time, I'd never get anything done!

Speaking of baseball, as we do 'round these parts, I'm taking Rianna to her first game of the season tomorrow night. It'll be a family night at the ballpark, with me, my brother, my mom, Rianna and even Rhyan, who is sure to terrorize anyone sitting near us! *laughs*

And since there will be more baseball tomorrow, I thought I should post my pictures from the Home Opener )
In honor of the start of the 2009 baseball season, we have the Sexy Pitchers Edition of the Hot Men of MLB Picspam!!! )

The Hot Men of MLB, Vol. 1
The Hot Men of MLB, Vol. 2 -- The Hotass Catchers Edition


So, there was baseball happening today. (OMGYAY!!!) It was even available for baseball fans' viewing pleasure on most television sets. Tragically, mine wasn't one of them. My cable has been all kinds of intermittently screwy for weeks now, but it chose today and ESPN2 to really demonstrate how fucked it really was. Seriously, my annoyance cannot be textually rendered. The cable guy is supposed to be here tomorrow evening, so hopefully the problem will be solved soon. But, really. Really! I could not have been more annoyed. (Not annoying, though, was the fact that the Braves won! \o/ )
We visited the Getty Center. I had always wanted to go and I'm so glad we did. It's gorgeous. I'm definitely going to plan on visiting more often.

Here are a few pictures of the gardens and the awesome view of L.A. )
On the off chance that my frequent and excited babble over Diamondbacks catcher Chris Snyder hasn't made it abundantly clear, let me just state for the record that, yes, it's true, I've got a massive thing for catchers! I don't know if it's because good catchers are smart, and I'm a sucker for a smart man, or if it's the amazing thighs and ass that come of all those hours squatting, but whatever the reason I love me some hotass catchers!!! ♥ So, since catchers and pitchers report this week (!!!), today's installment of The Hot Men of the MLB features HOTASS CATCHERS!!! )

It's sometimes hard to see the man buried underneath all of that catcher's equipment, so I hope y'all can now better appreciate the sexiness that can be found behind home plate! *g*

If you missed the earlier edition of "The Hot Men of MLB," volume 1 is here.

And finally, if you're like me and you've found yourself lamenting the fact that April is still almost two months away, you might like these 'Is it April yet?' icons by [livejournal.com profile] awkwardiconic. I have the feeling that I'll be using them a lot between now and Opening Day.
