More from JD from SF Father's Day

Hey friends:
I'm JD, the guy from the piece. Thank you for posting this page, and alerting me! I hadn't even seen the original article yet: the paper version comes out tomorrow.
Frankly, I was a little disappointed: when I contacted my friend over at the San Diego Reader and e-mailed him a thumbnail of the story, I said several things in the note I would've preferred he hadn't printed (i.e., my dislike of television, and the fact that I thought maybe people-- other than non-hardcore fans such as yourselves, that is-- may not know who he is anymore). Made me sound a little, uh. . . snippy, maybe? That silly rivalry crap between creative humans that always seems to make the papers?
Just the opposite. Adam was warm, friendly, open, and presented such a loving presence about him. No ego, just an all-around great guy. When I asked him if he wanted to sing, I sorta figured he'd probably say no: like singing at a little podunk bar was not as cool as what he was used to. And I totally would've understood. But he responded: "Sure!"
And I wasn't exaggerating about folks' reactions. They were stunned. I said his name, and the place got quiet, like they thought I was putting them on. He walked up, and men and women alike were standing there with their mouths hanging open, like they still couldn't believe what they were seeing. I started playing "Mad World," and, taking the mic, he said: "Slow it down a little bit." I did. "A little more." And he friggin' NAILED it: every high note right on the money. Finished, and the place erupted like it was U2 at the Coliseum.
Anyway, registering and logging in here, I was bracing myself for his fans'--YOUR-- reactions to this non-TV watching, I-wonder-if-people-still-know-who-he-is musician. But everyone here at the site was very cool, and your responses to the article were sincere.
One last thing, as a testament to Adam, the human. After he got done singing, this one really drunk guy started harassing him: hugging him, talking loud in his face, etc. At one point, he was hugging him from the back, definitely without his permission. Gay or not, SO not appropriate. If it were me, I think I woulda clocked the guy, and I'm Mr. Staunch Non-Violence by trade. Adam told him to back off, but didn't react as harshly as he certainly had the right to. A minute or two later, he waved a goodbye to everyone, and was gone.
Though I'm friends with his dad and stepmom, I may never see him again. But it was enough to meet him once to know that he's more than just a talented musician. He's a class guy, and I wish him the deepest blessings in his future creative endeavors. Just know there's one more Adam fan in the world tonight.
Peace and love to you.

Mark Your Calenders!  Another Enlightening Radio show by Angelina Kalahari  (June 28, 5:30 PM EST I think!)

The Sound Bath programme presents Philippa Semper, PhD who 

enlightens listeners on Adam Lamberts Powerful Lyrics 28 

June, 10:30pm UK time on
Lyrics are often the reason why a song becomes that special song to us, because we can particularly relate to meaningful lyrics, and such songs become the soundtrack to our lives.

But in the same way we often dont look at why a specific singers voice touches us more uniquely - we only know that we find his or her voice pleasing or beautiful - we also dont investigate why exactly we find some lyrics more moving than others – but we recognize that some lyrics resonate more powerfully with us than others.

Someone who can enlighten us on this issue is Philippa Semper. She has been an avid reader since she was three years old, and captivated by music for as long as she can remember; a childhood full of books and choir rehearsals helped her to develop both areas. After studying English literature as an undergraduate, she took her PhD in medieval manuscript research at the University of Exeter. She taught English for several years at University College Dublin before moving to the University of Birmingham, where she lectures in medieval English literature and modern fantasy writing and publishes in both areas. Philippa became interested in the relationship between modern song lyrics and literary texts when she found herself writing about a U2 lyric in one of her finals examinations, and she has since used modern songs to teach students how to approach medieval lyrics. She discovered Adam Lambert by way of Muse through the song 'Soaked' which Muse provided for his debut album; she has been fascinated by both Adam's lyrics and his music ever since.

Here are my thoughts right after the concert:

Update from Foxwoods

I have now seen Adam seven times in person.  This was the most incredible performance I have ever seen live or online.  As I have said before, I cannot imagine him being any better ever… But he always ups it!   

Adam’s vocals were perfection. 
Soaked and Whole Lotta Love were incredible.  There will be videos soon and I cannot imagine they will do Adam’s performances justice. 

 What a voice, what a great smile, what great energy he displayed!

Tommy action was not like in New York but there were a few sweet incidents that showed how beautifully playful they are.. You’ll see them soon and you will smile!

Everyone was amazed… everyone was stunned.  I’m off to the bar to dance and sing and have fun with all the great fans.  Met so many!

How Adam Lambert Inspired Me thanks to @melluvslambert.

Drawing by @melluvslambert. ..Hmm.. how do I turn it?

          I used to live my life in a shell, trying to blend into the crowd and disappear; too shy and scared to think I was important enough to matter to anyone. I was about to give up on my dream of becoming an equestrian Olympian because I felt overwhelmed and didn't believe in myself. But that all changed when something new found its way into my heart.

 The godly, chill-inducing voice of a contestant on American Idol was left lingering in my mind. His name was Adam Lambert. He was bold, brave, unapologetic, honest, unafraid to be himself, and to top it all off his voice was greater than anything the music industry had witnessed. At the time, I had no idea how much this contestant would mean to me eventually. I never would have predicted that I would see him live ten times in a little over a year, or that I would wait hours after concerts to get something signed by him, fly from San Diego to Dallas to attend a Meet and Greet with him, or wait 14 hours in line two days in a row in Hollywood to witness his final shows from his first tour.

 Adam grabbed my attention with the intense looks and sly smiles he was giving the camera in the beginning of his performance of Satisfaction. By the end of the song, he was belting out his impossibly high notes, ejecting them into my brain, and I knew there was no going back. No going back from my love of the sweet, nice, down-to-earth boy-next-door who could transform into a magnificent rocker every time he hit the stage. 

To be honest, I didn’t admit that I was obsessed at first. My mom loved Adam before me, but eventually we both came out as Glamberts. Next thing we knew we were chasing his limo at his Mt. Carmel Idol homecoming and absorbing everything we could about who he was, what he was up to, and anything else about him we could find! 

As I learned about Adam’s past, personality, and opinions, I realized my way of thinking was changing. He expressed himself in his own way and didn’t care what anyone else thought. He was different too, but instead of marking it as a flaw, he embraced it. 

I saw how much work Adam put into making his dream come true and how it finally paid off after ten years. Watching all of his interviews and performances were like therapy for me. Each day I could feel myself trying to think more positively and I began to come out of my shell. 

As I reflect on myself today, I realize that I've grown immensely as a person. Overall I am more joyful than ever before, I am not afraid to be myself and speak what is on my mind, I am a more open-minded person, and my goals for the future feel as if they are getting closer and closer every day.

Aftermath Essay by @melluvslambert.

“Before you break you have to shed your armor, take a trip and fall into the glitter.”My horse Lonestar leaps as high as he can and for what feels like eternity, we’re flying. But gravity separates me from him and I fall seven feet straight to the slippery grass, and fracture my back. “And so it goes, everything inside your circle starts to overflow…”

Rain fell, but my riding clinic with the Olympic trainer George Morris still wasn’t canceled.  My heart pounded and an avalanche of thoughts flooded my brain; suffocating me in my worries and the pressure I put on myself for success. The unfamiliar banks and hedges seemed to loom over me. 

“Take a step before you leap…”Lonestar and I reacted in terror when we saw the line of fences going up a hill, followed by a four foot bank to jump down…

After a devastating fall, my world had come crashing down and my goals for the future seemed to slip out of reach. I lay in bed for days, already missing riding. Listening to music and watching concert videos were my pastime, and Aftermath quickly became my anthem for recovery. 

“Have you lost your way? Living in the shadows of the messes that you made…” 

The powerful message of Aftermath restored hope in my life. Now I’m back in the saddle and working my way back up to where I was. Whenever the nerves start to take over, the Aftermath remix pumps me up and helps me get out of my head.

“Just remember you’re not alone, in the aftermath…” 

Lonestar stopped and looked at me to see if I was ok. He looked into my eyes and at that moment, I knew everything would be fine…

Adam Lambert 101: An introduction

Alice said: Gloria, thanks for creating this Sauli site. Adam’s heart eyes with Sauli tell the whole story. I love them together. They seem so right for each other, far beyond the fascinating fashion coincidences. Adam said this time he’s looking for someone who could take care of him this time, with so much going on in his life. Enter Sauli. Delightfully calm and unphased by all the madness that surrounds Adam, he seems to offer Adam peace, trust, support, and a refreshing love that comes from a good, unneedy place. Aside from an obvious attraction, they are good together because both are artists with strong support from family and friends, wry sense of humor, gift of gab, sunshiny personality, love of dance, compassion, kindness, humility, et al. Sauli and Adam are kindred spirits. Thank you Universe for bringing them together. I hope they always want each other as much as they do now. Adam, we know why your heart is full and we are overjoyed by your bliss.
