Adam Lambert might actually be talented…

It just that on Idol, he doesn’t seem to fit. I believe that his voice just might fit Broadway though. Maybe he will take that path again when he comes in second (or wins, whatever). Ha

See his performance of “As Long As You’re Mine” from WICKED.


Ohhhh Britney…really?

You would think people had costumers and assistants to check for things like this…

Video: Jacoby Ellsbury Steals Home

In the many years I have been following the Boston Red Sox, I would be hard pressed to recall something so impressive as the following video. Jacoby Ellsbury steals home plate…A straight steal, not on an error. Check it out and tell me if that doesn’t take balls to attempt!

I saw Tyrone perform this live a few weeks ago. Nothing short of awesome!

Favorite TLC song?

April 21, 2009 Leave a comment

So, the latest season of Celebrity Apprentice has again piqued my strong love for some TLC. Not tender-loving care or the learning channel, but the R&B group.

Tionne, Razonda (Chili) and Lisa.

What is your favorite TLC song? I think I will go with an obscure one…even though it doesn’t have Lisa singing in it.

Why am I strangely “in-like” with Maria Mena?

For years, I have been quietly ‘in-like’ with Maria Mena. If you have paid attention to my musical taste, you might be confused as to why I enjoy her and have this quiet affinity for. Her voice is somehow soothing, although far from perfect. I cannot seem to get enough of her. 

I was listening to her latest album and this song came on. Did a little youtube search. And decided to do a little posty-post.

What do you think of Maria Mena?

Gavin Degraw – Free

April 16, 2009 2 comments

So, as some of you may recall (probably not), I wrote a pretty strong and  praising review of Gavin’s last album, GAVIN DEGRAW. Looking back, I might have been a little bit excited about it and that MIGHT have clouded my judgement a little bit. But that is neither here nor there. I liked it then and I like it now. I do think that waiting 5 years between albums though might have been a bit too much.

Gavin changed his mind this time and put out an album in a year or so. He decided to go back to the foundation of his music and avoid the overly processed sound he felt he had on the last album. He wanted it to be organic and raw. I think he achieved this, but I think it might be too raw, too contrived. Is there such a thing as Gavin Degraw over-singing his own songs? In my opinion, this is exactly what he does on some of the tracks of his new album, FREE.

Don’t get me wrong though. I enjoy the album and I enjoy the concept. I will definitely keep it in rotation, but I can’t help but want for more. Maybe he will take the Josh Kelley route and put out an album every time he has enough songs. I like that idea. 

On another positive note, I’m thrilled that he finally recorded a version of “Dancing Shoes.” Way to go Gavin. Oh, and apparently I got some autographed poster with my purchase. I guess I forgot about this and ripped into the package prematurely. Yes, I ripped the poster. HA

Keep on keeping on. 

Did any of you get this album? What’d you think?
