Just heard from 2 granddaughters after I mailed them Adam's cd. The 23 yo who is a grad student in PA said "Thank you for the cd! I love his new music." The 20 yo who will be a Jr. at Tex A&M said "Thank you so much for the Adam CD! I'm loving it "
I've given up on the other 3 grandkids: 1 is a 'country' fan, 1 is into rap/hip hop, and the youngest one likes Big Time Rush. I may have to write them out of the will if they don't wise up soon. At the very least, I won't bake cookies the next time they visit.
Have only had time to read parts of the thread on and off through the day, and have only been able watch the NCOE video once. But I really enjoyed what I read of the discussions today, deep and not so deep, funny and not so funny. Love the way that Adam's MV is generating so much debate and conversation -- as well as attention in the media.
Particularly remember enjoying thoughts about the MV posted by readon,NoAngel, and maria222pf earlier today, as well as juniemoon's post, which generated a lot of discussion pro and con. Really LOVE reading the diverse and divergent viewpoints posted here. As for my thoughts, well, I've only seen the MV once so far. And my son recently joked that if I ever wrote a book, the title would probably be "I'm Still Processing This". LOL. And that about sums it up for me at the moment.
I so agree, he never says, you know and hmm......It's all impromptu and he is never lost for words or never gropes for words. He absolutely amazes me !!!!!
It always impresses and fascinates me how accomplished Adam is at maintaining eye contact with both the interviewer and the audience any time he is a guest. It is a priceless skill and part of Adam's charm.
I haven't watched today's interviews yet, but based on past interviews ITA. Adam's social skills are almost as mind-boggling to me as his performance skills.
I gave a friend the deluxe cd AND gifted her a copy on iTunes. Today she told me she listened to it three times over the weekend. Gifting works, people. Just saying.
It sure as hell does! Gave my friend at work the cd. She saw Adam at Springleball and wanted more Adam. So took her to WB and she LOVED the concert! New Fan!
I don't normally buy more than 2 or 3 copies (1 digital, 1 to keep in car and to share, and 1 for the house), but I just bought a 4th copy to give to a friend who had gone to one GNT concert with me and who loved the Trespassing tracks I played for her. She's loving it. And who knows, maybe she'll interest someone else in it. Still, I wouldn't gift a copy to someone who had not expressed an interest -- I get enough side-eyeing from friends as it is over my *enthusiasm* for Adam.
For those who know.. is this a typical 2nd week drop at 70%?
Myspencer50 posted this list of second-week drops in the Numbers thread. It should put your mind at ease!
Jennifer Lopez Love? 63% Rihanna's TTT saw a 68% Chris Brown F.A.ME. 68% One Direction Up All Night 69% Daughtry Break the Spell 69% Taylor Swift's Speak Now 70% Train California 37 70% Kelly Clarkson 70% Nicki's Roman Reloaded 71% Britney's Femme Fatal 73% David Cook This Loud Morning 74% Coldplay Mylo Xyloto 76% Demi Lovato Unbroken 77% Kanye West MBDTF 78% Mac Miller Slide Park 82% Lady Gaga BTW 83% Madonna MDMN 88%
The sexy singer has given fans the gift of another fantastic music video. His latest offering is an epic tale set in a dystopian world. The long and short of it is that Adam brightens up the dullness with his sexy dance moves and his pretty colours and his sexy face. A bit like real life then.

Q3: They are working on the Member Search function -- if you are looking for someone use the page numbers to move thru to the person you want. That is working, database look-up is not working.
