vma

on August 28, 2011 - 11:22pm

Does anyone know whether Josh made it to the VMA thing? I'm seeing videos popping up on YouTube, but no indication of whether he was there or not.

Sigh.

I like him best, but he isn't glitzy or shocking. Adele manages to get up there doing just straight music, but I think Josh's voice is better than hers. He should be up there also.

Still, "Hidden Away," which I gather was his entry, is not exactly the most accessible piece of music. It's not the one I would have chosen as the first single off this album, or the first music video. I think they should have done "War at Home." I think that would have had more general appeal and could have had a really great video, like they did for Capital Fourth.

Pink has over 4 million followers

on August 25, 2011 - 7:28pm

Because Josh tweeted to Pink, I had a chance to look at her twitter profile. She's got over 4 million followers. Why? Dammit! Josh is better than she is, for sure. What are we doing wrong here?

a poem

on August 15, 2011 - 9:27pm

sort of a sad/lonely poem -- sorry about that

Stranger/Friend
-----------------------
Cybersmile
Angel face
Voice of jet
Darkly glow
Voice of light
Blind my sight
Fill my ears
Touch my heart
Tweet retweet
Here alone
Chimera
Shining screen
Shows your face
Far away
Feels so near
Beyond reach
Beyond speech
Ships that cross
Perhaps graze
Then pass on

Josh getting groped

on August 4, 2011 - 6:50am

I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos of this latest concert tour -- and I'm increasingly distressed at the number of times Josh is reporting being groped. Here is the latest one:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTR1Ev6o8t8

You'll notice that at 25s he screams because someone is groping him.

Then at 1:12 he discusses it for a while in some detail. You can tell by the way he screams when it happens and later squirms in discussing it that it's really bothering him, though he makes light of it afterwards.

What particularly bothers *me* is that he's only walking around in the area of the arena where there was preferential seating for members of the fan club -- so it is members of this fan club or their guests who are doing this.

Cheerleader wants to know the score

on July 20, 2011 - 1:13pm

I am realizing that a function that we as fans provide here is to cheer for team Josh -- to be cheerleaders. I find it a bit frustrating, though, because we don't get ongoing statistics. Is the tour doing well? Is the "Illuminations" album continuing to sell? We see some information occasionally, but not regular updates. I wish I could see a running tally somehow.
