Dark, Light and Everything In Between! 04/02/2012

 I'm a shipper of Dark Adam & Light Adam (shopped by yani)
Love BTIKM Music Video so much.  Every time I watch it I notice more things and it continuously gives me chills!  Today I saw Light Adam mouthing "What you doing" when Dark Adam sets the fire.  Also got the feeling that when the two rooms are shown at the same time, it's two sides of my brain fighting it out.  Popcorn on the floor even though Adam swept makes me smile.  Going back for one more viewing!  Would love to see the video in SLOW MOTION... can anyone do it?

More than 470,000 views already!  Keep watching it! 

(I know you are!)

Here is how to loop the video so it plays over and over

My video for Adam Lambert premiered today! Here's "Better Than I Know Myself": do you think?#BTIKM

Interesting Interpretations of BTIKM MV

Thanks to JunieMoon

- We start out with Dark Adam. I confess I had a few moments of doubt as Dark Adam fusses with his hair and throws himself down on the couch. He didn't seem all that menacing. I was a tiny bit worried about whether it was all going to come off.

- Then I began to see how truly tortured Dark Adam was. We see the Dark Adam guzzling alcohol. The light Adam appears. "You thought I was so soft and sweet." He putters around his area drinking tea. Only the need to be on life-giving oxygen gives away that all is not right in the world of Light Adam.

- They are both aware of the existence of the other. Light Adam sees Dark Adam in the mirror, and they can see what the other is doing.

- About 1:27 is when the video sent my heart starting to pound and it hasn't stopped since. This is the chilling scene where Dark Adam pours out the liquor and mocks Light Adam viciously. Light Adam just shakes his head as if to say "What are you doing? That isn't me." Then as Light Adam seeks knowledge in books, Dark Adam destroys them as if to say, "What you are seeking isn't there! It's here!"

- Dark Adam becomes ever more desperate to be acknowledged. When Light Adam is trying to clean up, Dark Adam waves his liquor bottle and pretends to masterbate! Light Adam looks disgusted. He seems to decide to try to reach out, but also seems to think he can keep Dark Adam on a leash, like a dog. It's his turn to mock.

- THEN OMG THE HEART SCENE. I really didn't expect this? It gives a whole new meaning to "try and see my heart." Whose heart is it (both of theirs)? Dark Adam is screaming, he will destroy them both. Truly "I can go too far" is the message here.

Remember when Adam said this video was the twin to Whataya? I also saw a message to the fans here ... maybe this is just me. But I saw "I HAVE GIVEN YOU MY HEART NOW WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?"

- Light Adam steps up his efforts to reach out with the chess board. But this is no game between them. Dark Adam exults over the flame of destruction he begins. He's going to kill them both if Light Adam does not try to understand him. Then he smears away his makeup. Again a dual message in the video story and to the public:


Interestingly it is Dark Adam who makes the final recognition. He is the one who saves Light Adam from the destruction he has wrought on both of their lives. He seems to realize that Light Adam is too weak to live without him. They merge and together they walk into the real world to begin their new life without the trappings that kept them apart.


Pomegranate thanks to NoAngel

Dark Adam is definitely crushing a pomegranate, but it looks very much like a heart and that's on purpose, I'm quite sure.

If they'd wanted an actual heart in the vid, Ray Kay could have purchased a fake heart at the local prop shop for a few bucks, but I think they wanted people to be shocked for a moment, thinking that Dark Adam was crushing a heart in his hands. And then we zoom in and it's clearly a fruit.

The symbolism of the pomegranate is mainly tied to Greek mythology:

The myth of Persephone, the goddess of the Underworld, also prominently features the pomegranate. In one version of Greek mythology, Persephone was kidnapped by Hades and taken off to live in the underworld as his wife. Her mother, Demeter (goddess of the Harvest), went into mourning for her lost daughter and thus all green things ceased to grow. Zeus, the highest ranking of the Greek gods, could not allow the Earth to die, so he commanded Hades to return Persephone. It was the rule of the Fates that anyone who consumed food or drink in the Underworld was doomed to spend eternity there. Persephone had no food, but Hades tricked her into eating six pomegranate seeds while she was still his prisoner and so, because of this, she was condemned to spend six months in the Underworld every year. During these six months, when Persephone is sitting on the throne of the Underworld next to her husband Hades, her mother Demeter mourns and no longer gives fertility to the earth. This became an ancient Greek explanation for the seasons.Link:

So the ideas of light (the world above ground, for the living) and dark (the underworld, where the dead reside) is inherent in the pomegranate. Also the idea of balance-- finding a way to live in both worlds.

Other mythologies use the pomegranate, and some say that the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden was not an apple, but a pomegranate.

This is my long-winded way of saying that the pomegranate was chosen very consciously for the video

Adam Lambert Addresses Queen Rumors on Twitter

"Oooh them clever reporters takin my quotes outta context.... I haven't confirmed any guest appearances. I was talking about the EMA'S," he tweeted, without directly referencing the report in question. "That being said, I'm truly flattered by your jump to such glorious conclusions mr journalist!! :)"

Sorry to break the news to you, Glamberts! We’re sure you won’t take it too hard, though, as we can all comfort ourselves by enjoying the brand new video for “Better Than I Know Myself” for the umpteenth time. Additionally, Adam’s denial of these reports just go to demonstrate exactly how much faith he has in his new record and how committed he is to his upcoming tour. He told our VH1 News correspondent Kate Spencer as much in a recent video interview:
“Well, I think the thing to keep in mind too is that like, you know, I’m a songwriter and I have an album out, or coming out, and that is important to me. That is my first priority, is sharing my music and my message with my fans. But Queen is really cool! And I love the music and I love the honor of being asked and I think it sounds like a lot of fun, so I’m going to try and find a way to kind of make both things happen.”

Adam Lambert on going less glam

And in a video interview with Access Hollywood aired yesterday (February 3), Lambert reckoned the glam look was a defence mechanism after he was thrusted into the limelight. He said:
"I think in a way there was a part of me that was putting all of that on as a slight defence. It's a very shocking thing to go into the mainstream all of a sudden and so fast, on American Idol, and I think it was like my form of protection - 'I'm going to put on as much eyeliner as I can and hide behind that'."

  1. thanks for the link to loop a video so I don't have to keep clciking replay. today post is AMAZING love the screen cap of Adam with two different eyes just brilliant.


  2. Wow! This is my favorite blog you've given us, Gloria!! It truly is the light, dark and EVERYTHING! The pics are incredible. Balanced Adam is my new wallpaper. OMG, those eyes!!!!! And my favorite pic is dark Adam and light Adam embracing. Whoa!! The tenderness in the light, the passion in the dark. Be still my heart!

    Sorry to go all spiritual and philosophical on ya, but I need to share an insight I had during meditation abou the video. Spiritually, I saw the light and dark polarities coming together in a huge clash of fire, then evolving into the new human. One who is strong, yet gentle; powerful, yet loving; tough,yet vulnerable; self-loving and compassionate at the same time. Wow!! And I saw myself in those eyes. Thank you, Adam!! You are a gift to mankind!!

  3. Great post!! I can't stop watching see something new each time ! And the explanation of the symbolism only makes it even more interesting to watch--ahhhh Adam:)
