Adam Lambert Misquoting, Dying & Vamping

August 16, 2012

So the Sparkle Cows have been glamping up a storm, rushing all over the interwebs to beat on anyone not agreeing with the idea that Adam with silver hair isn’t the sex-sayesty thing on the planet!! Eleventyy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111!

It’s the Billy Idol Grampa Look!!

Don’t believe me, just check out the comments on any website containing reference to the bleach do. Either comments have been disabled because of stupidity or all negative ones are buried in an avalanche of cow drool.

Later he added more chemical damage to his hair by dying the bottom black and leaving the tips silver. Here he is vamping/clamping/glamping it up as either an old homage to Adam Ant or some type of gay vampire on a teen show.

Doesn’t he just look precious? He’s ready for his closeup Mr. DeMille.

But the thing that drew me in to post about Madam tonight is his epic fail of a tattoo. Bhahahahah! Lookit it!

What is so wonderful about this tattoo is two different things…

A) It reads in Latin – “Music Soothes The Savage Beast” which is hysterical when you take into account his freakish beast-like Sparkle Cows. Subtle underhanded fuck you in my eyes.

b) But mostly because the quote is all wrong and I’m betting he doesn’t realize it.

Two of Congreve’s turns of phrase from The Mourning Bride (1697) have become famous, albeit frequently in misquotation:

“Music has charms to soothe a savage breast,” which is the first line of the play, spoken by Almeria in Act I, Scene 1. (The word “breast” is often misquoted as “beast”, and “has” sometimes appears as “hath”.)

Bhahahah! And he has to live with that hideously inked mistake forever now!!
Seriously Adam, bleach will eventually fry your hair and cause it to fall out like autumn leaves hitting the ground and none of this erases the fact that your second CD is a huge enormous flop.

Queen Fans Beware of Adam Lambert’s Sparkle Cows

February 28, 2012

Oh lawdy, the news continues. Apparently Queen + Madam are playing another date, not just the Sonisphere Fest at Knebworth. They will be playing a week earlier in Moscow at the Olympic Arena. Moscow Russia, not Moscow Idaho. Info about that has come out in a press release from Queen Official. Ticket sales haven’t started but warning for the Sparkle Cows – the site is auf paruski (in Russian) so better get your favorite translator to help you buy those tickets. I’m wondering why there’s a photo of “House” star Hugh Laurie on the site and not one of Queen but have to wait for my favorite Russian translator to come home from work and be my peravochic. I suspect Hugh is playing or hosting something in Moscow.

So the real question is, how many Sparkle Cows versus how many Queen fans will travel to Knebworth and/or Moscow? And will there be blood and glitter on the floor of the venue.

Dear Queen fans, this is what you can expect from Adam Lambert’s Sparkle Cows. They are aggressive, very aggressive. They will elbow, instep stomp, shin kick, shriek, push and accuse of homophobia anyone that tries to stop them from pushing through the crowd and right up against the stage. I’d recommend wearing a pair of steel toed Doc Martins to deal with them. You’ll see them coming from far away, a herd of fat glitter and paint middle aged women with unfortunate hair. They’ll come in lock step and try to mow down anyone in their way from the front of the stage. I oh so wish to be a fly on the wall the second Brian May has to look down in that sea of deluded sparkling fug at his feet. The look on his face will be worth seeing.

You lot are about to come into contact with the craziest most obsessional fan base you’ve ever seen. They’ll likely attack anyone that tries to bottle Madam. As the gigs get nearer they are going to start clashing with any Queen fans on the boards, probably saying things like ‘Queen should be GRATEFUL to have Adam!” and act like Madam is more talented than Brian or Roger Taylor. They will be frustrating, they will be obtuse, they will be unreasoning. Good luck because you’re going to need it.

ETA: This wonderful video by a Queen fan comparing Madam’s singing to Gene Pitney… they both have goaty notes.. maaaaaahhhh

Adam Lambert & Brian May Ain’t Queen

February 26, 2012

So it turns out that the news Adam Lambert had been babbling about being the lead singer for Queen this summer before suddenly retracting wasn’t entirely stupid rumor. I was very sad to hear this considering I have adored Queen since I first saw them in my teens. I saw them on the stage of the Uris Theater on Broadway, NYC in May of 1974. I’d hitchhiked to NYC with my best bud to see my all time favorite band, Mott The Hoople, but Queen opened for Mott and that was that for me. I divided my teen tarding between hunky Pete “Overend” Watts and Freddie Mercury with Freddie eventually overcoming my love of Overend.

I loved Queen. Queen with Freddie Mercury. Not any of these mish-mashed Queen with a variety of people wanting to fill Freddie’s old ballet slippers. Queen stopped being Queen with Freddie Mercury’s untimely passing. You cannot consider anything really post-Freddie as Queen, more like half Queen, half something else. A different creature all together. More like a cover band or a karaoke band.

Of the three remaining members I have to say the only one left I have any love or respect for is the bassist John Deacon. John wisely realized that Queen with another singer is not only not Queen but some vile travesty. He retired since there was no more Queen.

But Brian May couldn’t accept that he should move on, free of Queen and make his own music beyond those two failed solo albums he did. He couldn’t leave well enough alone. He’s spent his post-Queen time either whoring out the hits of the band as fodder for commercials, putting new lead singers in place, creating ‘musicals’, whining that the planet doesn’t go vegan entirely or stop smoking plus trying to rescue various animal groups. While there’s nothing wrong with animal rescue I want to know what the hell is wrong with the man. Is flying around the world to view eclipses, playing with his stereoscopic photos and badger rescue not occupying enough for a guy pushing 70? Is he out of money? What, what? Stroke? Senior dementia?

I have to blame dementia. Or attention whoring. I can’t decide which one is responsible. Have time to waste? Bore yourself with Brian’s whining and whinging at his own blog.

Now Madam thinks he is up to the task? Madam, lover of shrieking and constant overuse of melisma? Judge for yourself.

Compare with the master, the real champion Freddie Mercury

Sorry, Sparkle Cows, Adam Lambert ain’t no champion. He didn’t win “American Idol” and he’s not the champion of Queen. He’s not fit to hold Freddie’s old jock strap

Taking a gander over at the official Queen fan site I see that most of the hard core Queen fans are no more pleased than I am at the appearance of Adam in the Freddie slot.

Some interesting posts from Queen Online that seem to echo the general consensus that Madam plus what’s left of Queen is a terribly bad idea.

All this talk of Adam Lambert & Queenextravaganza is really just a state of cognitive dissonance. We, Brian & Roger all want MORE Queen. We want more of that magic from the four members of the greatest Rock band of all time. What a thrill. The amount of entertainment and good times millions of people have felt because of that “Magic”. 15 albums, DVDs, live bootlegs. It’s still not enough. But that’s a good thing. “Always leave them wanting more” is the key in showbiz.

But here is the reality. As great as Brian May, Roger Taylor & John Deacon are Queen would NOT have achieved this measure of greatness without that fearless, lunatic Freddie Mercury. He’s the main one that made them the champions. Freddie Mercury, with all his human foibles and bad personal choices, was one of a kind. He lived his life the way we are all too chickensh** (or wise) to do ourselves. He did whatever he wanted, he tasted everything, he tested all waters, pushed all envelopes, crossed all lines. The greatest rock & roll singer of recorded history.

Queen does not exist anymore. No matter how many “Queen +” projects they regurgitate. The Queen name should only be associated with Freddie Mercury’s involvement. There’s vault material with Freddie- there is more magic possible from the true Queen- outtakes, live shows, video. But without Freddie there is no Queen.

It’s as if Roger woke up one morning and said. Hey 40 Years? Let’s see if we can lose all credibility in the next ten years and obfuscate our memories of who really was the biggest creative force behind the band. The one who talked them into having another go at this band thing. The one who brilliantly named them. The one that designed their logo and image. Oh and just happened to make them millionaires by writing their first three hits. Who was that “one”? Hmmm Frank Merlin? Francis- Freddy Fender- aw who knows. Fast forward to 2021. Yeah, “Queen +”. “I remember them. They had like a different singer every few years or something, didn’t they?” but I know the names Roger Taylor & Brian May and they must be Queen cause they say so. Queen + $$$$.

Re: Dream Queen+Adam Lambert Set List

My dream Queen+Adam Lambert set would be something like this:

Brian walks out on stage at the first gig and says ‘sorry, folks, me and Rog misjudged this one – probably not for the first time – we can’t go on stage and play an entire set with an X-Factor winner. It wouldn’t be right. You can collect a full refund on your way out. Cheers.’
My ideal setlist:
1. 45-minute warm-up acoustic set with Brian and Roger.
2. Lambert joins them on stage and announces to get ready for the best Queen-related concert ever.
3. Huge movie screens drop down.
4. The long awaited Live at Hammersmith concert [or insert your fav Queen concert here] begins in Hi Def, 3D stereo as Lambert leaves the stage.
5. Audience enjoys the best Queen concert ever

The Queen fans may not be in love with the idea but the Sparkle Cows are living in delusion land as usual. They are starting to whine that Queen fans aren’t accepting of Lambert as the singer because, get this, they are a bunch of homophobes. Yes, Sparkle Cows trot out their most tired and ridiculous of all stupid excuses. Like no one could tell that Freddie Mercury was gay? Seriously?

I think when an iconic band has been around as long as Queen has, and when the lead singer tragically dies, there is a sort of understandable loyalty among the die hards to the music and the deceased. I remember, for instance, after Elvis’ death, as other entertainers started doing his songs, there was backlash. So the reaction isn’t surprising. I think some die hards fear Adam will become a permanent fixture in the band and “replace” Freddie, which ain’t gonna happen.

I also understand that not everyone will love Adam as I do. That’s ok. There’s room for all of us. The only time I get irked by Queen fans bashing on Adam is if they say he can’t sing (gotta be tone deaf there, lol ) or if it seems to be coming from a homophobic attitude, which is hilarious considering Freddie’s sexual preference. Some of the bigoted fans accepted Freddie as long as he played the DADT game, I guess, and can’t handle Adam’s openness, and then there are those who are still in denial about it.

Hey, Adam’s not for everyone. But it sure looks like a lot of Queen fans enjoyed him at the EMAs! I’m not concerned about those temper tantrumming over this. Adam’s gonna blow them away at Sonisphere!

KatieJ

Ah, KatieJ, bucking to be mod over at AO unsuccessfully yet again. Freddie Mercury was NEVER DADT. He was out. Adam disdain has nothing to do with sexuality, but sheer talent. Putting Madam in Freddie’s place in the band is like asking Justin Bieber to fill in for Pavarotti in an opera.

More babbling from the Sparkle Cows…

am sure that some Queen fans will not like anyone who sings with Queen, and some will never like Adam no matter what he does. Those who call him a karaoke singer obviously don’t know anything about him at all. Adam fights the stigma of emerging from a reality show, and, of course, being gay. That is unfortunate FOR THEM. Nothing will change those whose minds are made up. Perhaps others who are less rigid will learn something. I don’t look for Adam to gain lots of fans from the rock and metal world; however, this is an opportunity for Adam to gain critical acclaim for his work and get huge amounts of publicity, publicity which I hope his management will capitalize upon. There will always be haters. As Adam himself has said, they serve to give him motivation. He is going to do a great job and hearing him sing live will be a test for their preconceived notions.

dont understand that Queen’S fan’s to batching Adam like that. Sad because that is not Adam to ask to Brian May or Paul Taylor that he want to be there frontman for that one concert at july 7 so its because Brian & Paul like the Adam’s voice and they like him very very much.

So why the Queen’s fan’s not understand that… The frontman they have the name of the singer are Paul or Roger dont remember for already many years tell me if there fan’s b****ing that guy like they b**** Adam’S? Poor guy..they accept now that guy for be the frontman and that guy dont want to replace Freddie like Adam’S dont want too. He just accept that huge invitation of Brian & Paul for give to Freddy’S memories. Thats it…

And like Katie,J said if they like Freddie considerating that Freddy’s orientation sexual life…its just hilarious like she said. Adam feel he always are a huge fan’s of Freddie and he will never want replace or mimic or tried to be Freddie…so its a little bit funny when you look all that.

On a bored evening recently I read through those Queenonline forum threads about Sonisphere. They were saying the place was busy because they had 70 or so posters logged in. The most negative posters were commenting again and again, magnifying their gripe. Many posters said that they weren’t planning to go anyway, regardless of the singer, and it seemed like the most negative posters were unhappy with almost everything Queen had done since Freddie passed decades ago. In spite of that in the newer posts, more members seemed to be coming to terms with the idea as other members argued the merits.

When we look at the fact that AO has about 500 fans online at any one moment, and is one of many many adam fan communities, (another one I frequent has about 250 members online each day, and 3,000-4,000 other viewers), it gives you a sense of how small that particular pool of Queen Online fans is compared to us, and the larger Queen fanbase as a whole. On another Adam site there are already more than 50 members who have bought Sonisphere tickets for example.

So basically I ended up feeling a little sorry for that particular forum, and the blustering and hair-pulling in the “purist” rock fan and Queen fan world makes very little difference because those Sonisphere tickets are very likely to sell out regardless of the complaining of a small portion of Queen fans who really weren’t planning to make the effort to go anyway.

I think there are plenty of Queen fans who are okay with, or enthusiastic about the idea. I’ve heard the Sonisphere forums are general positive on the idea, although I haven’t checked myself. For hardcore ‘Freddie or no one’ fans, I empathize, and think the antipathy really has little to do with Adam. A different singer would fall short for them in different ways, but would still fall short in their eyes.

Those poor Queen fans have no earthly idea what they are in for with the Sparkle Cows. This should be interesting to see as the Sparkle Cows go even nuttier and attack.

Adam Lambert Fans Suck At NoH8

February 22, 2012

It is with much amusement that I’ve been watching Adam Lambert’s fans scramble to explain why his newest single and video seem to have flopped. Some are blaming it on the label not spending any promotion dollars, others say he has been repressed in his genius by TPTB but mostly they are blaming it on plain old vanilla garden variety homo-hatin’. The fact that the video is filled with pretentiously painful overacting by the Glittery One or the less than dulcet tones of the song never seem to enter their minds. It’s always homophibians (their word, not mine) Evil homophibians did it, along with every other career no-no Adam has had.

The Sparkle Cows cannot accept that perhaps their golden boy might possibly be a high-handed prima donna with less than marketable product. The great unwashed public has spoken. It has nothing to do with sexual orientation at all. It’s more to do with tastes, the market and quality of the product.

Yeah, it’s not like any of them are actual LGBT activists in the first place. They only speak up when it involves Adam. Before they discovered Adam I suspect many of them had nothing but disdain for alternative sexualities. They’ve sure been silent on the recent overturn of Prop 8 in California Not one of them or their Idol have addressed the growing problem of suicide among bullied gay teens. They never comment on these things, they never respond, give time or money to LGBT causes unless Adam tells them to. Some gay activists they are.

During the last few Republican presidential hopefuls debates I’ve hung out in Adam’s brother Neil’s chatroom and just observed what many of the Adam fans there had to say during the debates. Scarily it seemed like a significant number of them expounded on their political beliefs like card-carrying Tea Party members, the type not exactly open to the needs of the LGBT community. That’s when they weren’t licking Neil’s ass like it might get them two steps closer to Adam.

But I have to admit I’m curious after Lambert announced he was no longer going to be doing the glitter thing any longer, that his style would be more organic. What exactly does that even mean?

I know one thing about it, whatever that style is I can see a bunch of his Sparkle Cows copying it like good little cult members. The leader is good the leader is great…..

Scotty McCreery Fail

November 25, 2011

Did everyone get enough to eat? Was the turkey good? Did you catch McCreery’s epic fail during one of the Thanksgiving Day parades? TMZ has it up now on their website

Poor kid. But what I wonder is if his tards, if he has tards, are taking to the internet to attack anyone pointing this out and behaving idiotically? Does anyone know? A couple of old nanna type tards did comment defending McCreery in over the top fashion but it’s a drop in the bucket of crazy compared to the way Adam Lambert and David Cook over invested pararelational tards behave.

Speaking of Cook fantards. Special message for those that follow me on Twitter. You aren’t doing yourself any favors by following me because I will immediately look at your profile and laugh my ass off at things like this you openly do. Just say no. No matter what you guys say it reminds me of that classic Duke Robillard song – “Sayin’ Don’t Make It So”, saying one thing and the reality is the opposite..

Real music, tards.

My teenybopper granddaughter was busy sporting an Adam Lambert t-shirt yesterday at our Turkey day dinner but that’s expected. She hasn’t experienced anything beyond the world of Jonas Brothers and Justin Bieber. It’s normal for kids in that age range to develop these obsessive one sided love for crap celebrities but… aren’t you grown ladies supposed to be over that stage of development? I don’t get it. Someone please explain it as rationally as you can.

Not The David Cook

November 24, 2011

Happy Thanksgiving! I’ve got a lot to be thankful for today, not the least of all is the best commenters online and people that make me laugh so hard I spit diet coke out of my nose, like NotTheDavidCook on twitter. Read and laugh.

It’s time to put some of these bat shit crazy fans in their place. @thedavidcook may not say it out loud, but I will!

@sassycatz Why don’t you just shut the hell up once and for all? Boycott the AMA’s? Get pissed at girls who met DC 4 free? LOL!!!!

@davidrocksdana How old ARE you? Why are you acting like a teenager? David doesn’t want to sleep with you, & he never will!

@iluvDCyes You will do nothing but embarass yourself when you meet David. You are the epitome of an insane fan!

People need to leave David Cook alone. Let him have sex with hot young women, let him drink and cuss and stop kissing his ass!

@NyCArole426 For God’s sake, loser, leave David Cook out of your inane, incessant tweets! You are so fucking pathetic! Try getting laid!

@ladynsearch Why do you need to tweet David Cook constantly? You are a nasty, scary piece of work & he does not want anything to do with u!

@bleed_into_one Who are you to judge David Cook as a pet owner, you pathetic cow? You are one of his most disgusting fans! Ugly in & out!

@bleed_into_one 2 VIPs & one after show M&G? You are damn right he will get sick of you. He already is sick of you! You disgust everyone!

@celticsfaninNH You know what? You are not a friend of David’s, you never will be, & how can you “love” someone you don’t know????

@m0d3rnNinja: David Cook fandom has some of the most gracious people in the world.”//And some of the craziest, too.

@NyCArole426: @NotTheDavidCook How disappointed are you that you are NOT @thedavidcook?!”//So happy that I don’t have to see your crap!

@brian_mayer: Dear groupies that are old enough to be @thedavidcook’s grandmother. You’re funny.”//And gross.

@rascalete: #Please sign the Birthday card for David Cook // ht tp:groupcard.com/c/Dt9DYcwvuvX // BAHAHAHA! Nice card, grannies!

@m0d3rnNinja Y me no join you? Cuz me no likey people who make a jokey out of a talented guy’s career. Y u obsess with a guy u not know?

Alright, I got a gift card to McDonald’s! I can feed the hungry masses now!

I don’t know who you are but you just brightened my turkey day up considerably! I’ll be laughing thinking about this while candying my yams and glazing the turkey.

PS to the tards that read here and drive up the stats to insane heights – It ain’t me no matter how you might want to fantasize it’s me and you’ll tattle to David and he’ll spank me.

Everyone have a safe and blessed holiday. Wonder how many of the cray-cray will find a way to work Cook into their holiday to the disgust of their family and cats?

David Cook & 9/11 Ground Zero Ceremony?

August 8, 2011

Last week it was amusing to watch over at DCO, LastFM and other places as his hardcore tard pack tried to get various internet radio and real life radio to place nothing but ‘This Loud Morning’ One online dj at Live365.com pandered to them and played all Dave for days. Don’t they all already have all his music so what gives with all the requesting?

Oh yeah, that’s right, create an artificial ground swell of support for his most recent CD release. Like that’s going to help him built a long term career by bumping up air play. I just think they’re going about winning new fans the wrong way. What person with half a brain would look at the crazy going on in the fandom and not run the opposite way even if they kinda liked the music?

So this week a new plot to make David Cook musical emperor of the universe has emerged and it gives me pause because of the very questionable issues of taste, couth, class, appropriateness, patriotism and a million other issues. Some of his tards, like RoyalsPhenom , are trying to get the song on his new CD “We Believe” used at the ten year observance ceremony at the Ground Zero memorial of 9/11. One of the comments that made me really clutch my pearls and feel nauseous was “RCA would be stupid to miss the opportunity”

ETA – Straight from DCO (thanks Burt!)

Xavier:
The Opportunity Of A Lifetime: We Believe in David Cook on 9/11!

While conversing on Twitter, a number of fans contributed to an epiphany that converged into the perfect storm; a rare opportunity that could weave David Cook’s music and compassion into the fabric of a nation, if not the world, for years to come. When you can find a song that somehow speaks for a generation, a nation, a world – one that captures its stuggles, its hopes, its indomitable spirit to remind people of the inherit goodness in this world – it’s no longer just a song…for it transcends life itself. That’s artistry! That’s David Cook. That’s We Believe!

As we all know DC is scheduled to perform the National Anthem on 9/11: a true honor. However, realizing how historic and emotional this day is, we couldn’t help but think “what if”? But it’s not just one “What If”, it’s three that morphed into one all encompassing question: “How the hell can we not?”

The First Idea…
What if Major League Baseball and the National Football League used “We Believe” to create a photo/video tribute to air before all their home games on 9/11. The song is spot on perfect…inspirational, powerful, universal…and it would instantly engrain the track into our national consciousness, but more succinctly, our hearts and dreams. Also, by placing the video tribute on you-tube that very same day, DC would gain an endless array of positive exposure.

The Second Idea…
What if David nationally debuted – during the Chiefs opening game – his new single “We Believe”. What could possibly be bigger than than the gravity of September 11, coinciding with the opening day of pro football? There is no bigger stage, but more profoundly, no bigger honor.

The Third Idea…
What if RCA donated all proceeds from the sales of “We Believe” on that Sunday to the 9/11 responders fund..or a related charity of their choosing. The NFL/MLB could even mention this at the end of the aired tributes and/or as a blurb by each game’s announcers. As we all know, DC is a compassionate, caring individual. What better way to make a difference then to help those who continue to suffer?

It’s public knowledge that I’ve been a big advocate of GTTG being a single…as well as a number of other fantastic tracks from TLM. However, the opportunity that this represents is simply too perfect not to use for the betterment of everyone….to make a difference. We Believe is a universal, uplifting song that has crossover, mega-hit potential. In these tough times, where even the biggest names fail, this could represent a rare chance to catapult David and his career to new levels; to expose the world, not only to his indelible vocal and songwriting talents, but to his decency and humanity. That’s why we love him.

What do we have to lose?
Very little. Sales are reduced to a crawl..not just for David but many artists…TLG is IMO treading water at best on the airwaves with very little commercial success…and you simply cannot buy the exposure and positive overatures something like this provides. Likewise, this is not an attempt to belittle TLG or push it out. It’s simply embracing the inevitable, as well as the practical. Music, like any other industry, is about siezing the day, trends, and marketing them into an advantageous, profitable, and positive model for success. What could possibly be more worthwhile than this?

What do we have to gain?
Everything! In a mercurial climate where fans are concerned about just getting a second single, let a lone a third, capitalizing on such a rare convergence of events is a gift in itself. This opportunity – for “We Believe”, David – most likely will never occur again; It’s the chance of a lifetime. Chances are, there will be no current single this time next year and TLM and may be a foregone conclusion. Yes, God forbid, but a distinct possibility! Now is the time to act, to give David a boost that any other day, occasion, or single release, never could. If RCA/19 were bold, they could even offer to make the video/photo compilation themselves for the NFL & MLB. Every notion makes a difference. Furthermore, if this venture was successful, it would instantly become a frontrunner for the 2012 Olympics. If WB becomes synonymous with 9/11, or any other event for that matter, it would innately sell itself: most notably as a meaningful piece of history.

Please, RCA & 19 – on the tenth anniversary of America’s worst tragedy – please take note, with the utmost respect from fans, and let’s try to make it one of our most memorable and inspiring tributes ever! Let’s forever change how we look at this horrific day, and wipe away the tears of our brethren with words of hope and strength. I know, if given the chance, David will give one of the most captivating performances in his young but so very promising career; one that could reverberate for years to come! We believe in America! We believe in David Cook! We Believe! Do you?

***For those who may potentially misconstrue this post: If anyone actually believes this is about profit, after reading this post, then they completely missed the bigger picture. The bottom line is we Believe is perfect for 9/11…to help a nation heal and move on to a better day. Nothing more. That’s why we suggested giving any sales from that day to charity. It’s always easier to hate than to create. This is simply a perfect time to expose a song…specifically written for days like this…to make a difference. Though, in the end, whether we like it, money will come into play….there will always be financial ramifications regardless. If you want to argue about profiteering, talk about those movies, tours, or momentos of 9/11. That’s not what this is about. Life goes on, you mourn the dead, but you also celebrate the future with the hope and vitality those souls represented. David wrote We Believe to make a difference in the world. I belie!ve in the character of David Cook…I believe in the good this song can do on 9/11. Nothing more. It’s the opportunity of a lifetime!

Please add your name below if you agree with us and want your voice to be heard! Thank you for your time and the read!

I have to wonder what Mr. Non-Baldy would think of fans contacting various places and people willy-nilly to beg that his song be used at this sad and solemn occasion commemorating the death of thousands in terrorist attacks. Would he be flattered that his fans are willing to use the anniversary of a tragedy for him to sell a few more records? Would he like that they are essentially speaking for him?

It would be much different if he had told RCA he wrote this song inspired by 9/11 and its aftermath and they approached those in charge of the anniversary memorial and promoted the song to be used at the ceremony. That’s their job! RCA is charged promote the album and creating additional sales opportunity. But I think that perhaps even those in power at a big corporation have too much class to try and exploit a national tragedy for sales. Too bad the fantards don’t have that same amount of sense and class.

Thank gawd some of the fans at DCO are speaking out about the inappropriateness of using a tragedy to try and pimp Cook’s CD. It’s really not the way to get additional fans, it’s creepy and wrong.

Did anyone see VH1’s ‘Behind The Music: Adam Lambert’ last night? I was too busy watching AMC’s ‘Breaking Bad’ to worry about seeing it but VH1 had it so heavily advertised that I had to wonder how it was.

Note to Lori Anne Dennick Carrington: Yeah, keep bandying my real name and town out like you have under various fake names. I don’t care. Go for it. It doesn’t change the facts that you stalked Constantine, plagiarized the writing of others and told a capacious amount of lies. Drove through your town while traveling recently and I couldn’t help but wonder just how miserable someone’s real life has to be to do the things you have.
