Currently Listening to … John Vanderslice’s “C&O Canal”

John Vanderslice

I don’t know who John Vanderslice is (yet), but I chanced on this song “C&O Canal” from Said The Gramophone (as far as I’m concerned, the best music blog!). It’s lovely – the only word I can come up with to describe this song is “effervescent.”

Listen in:

Check out John Vanderslice’s MySpace page. And if you like his songs – his album ‘Romanian Names” is for sale here.

Adam Lambert and Kris Allen on the AI Tour

June 30, 2009 Leave a comment

Hmmm – I don’t recall seeing anything like this last year! Anyway, if you head on to the official site (click here), all top 10 have videos up talking about the AI tour. (For a round-up of all tour/album news, click here)

I’m only embedding Adam, Kris and Allison (plus Anoop) – coz they’re the only ones I care to listen to … If videos refuse to play (the AI widget is notoriously wonky), just go the official site.

Adam Lambert (you can also view on YouTube)

Get this for your site

Product Description (from Amazon)

In idyllic Rosewood, Pennsylvania, where Burberry earmuffs keep diamond-studded ears warm, four very pretty girls have done some very wicked things. . . .

High school juniors Hanna, Spencer, Emily, and Aria have paid dearly for their sins. A stalker named “A” terrorized them for months and revealed their darkest secrets. But now that A’s true identity has been revealed, the girls can finally go back to their pretty little lives.

Only, once a pretty little liar, always a pretty little liar—and these girls just can’t help but be bad. Hanna will do anything to be Rosewood’s queen bee. Spencer starts stealing . . . from her parents. Emily can’t stop thinking about her new boyfriend. And Aria approves a little too strongly of her mom’s taste in men.

As the secrets get darker and the scandals juicier, the consequences turn deadly. After all, girls who forget the past are condemned to repeat it. And in Rosewood, someone is always watching. . . .

Click on the widget above or here to be able to read the novel, “Pretty Little Liars #5: Wicked”, in its entirety online (hurry, since it’s not indicated when this offer expires). Thank you to harpercollins and Sara Shepard!

It’s not really a free e-book in the sense that you can download and read later at your leisure, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers, right?

The site uses “Browse Inside” technology and looks like pages of pdf actually. Very easy to use and the pages are set at 100% with clear font, so it’s no biggie 🙂 And if you like it, buy it!

Kradam Alert! TV Guide Magazine has the scoop on Kradam!

June 27, 2009 2 comments

(download fixed video as MP4)

ETA: TV Guide fixed the sync issue!

Okay, this is the exact headline from TV Guide Magazine’s YT page – “Idol: Kris Allen’s man crush on Adam Lambert! TV Guide Magazine has the scoop on Kradam!” LOL

The Audio/Video is unfortunately NOT synced well … but Kradam fans shouldn’t mind – because this seriously brings a real Kradam fan to heaven. I cannot believe how extremely cool Kris is 🙂 Amazing, didn’t know guys like that existed till Kris, honestly.

They are SO feeding the Kradam fan-fiction. Reciprocal crushes, people!
** (Incidentally, if you’re looking for a couple of Kradam fic recommendations, look at the right side bar where I’ve listed a couple of links which don’t suck – the fic recs are found directly under the calendar.)
