  1. This? Perfect, IMO. I have lots of "wishes" and "hopes" for Clay, but my main one is "I hope he's happy and living the life he wants." There's a TON of clack out there, and I do the same thing. It's easy to go down the clack rabbit hole, and if I've got the time -- that's a fun afternoon. Well, I just got notification for someone who applied (and which I approved), so hopefully it's the same person. If it's not, PM me and I'll write up some instructions.
  2. Cool picture merrieeee! Glad you checked in, and I hope you have a great time! Twilight, you bring up some valid points regarding Clay. Summer is usually pretty quiet for him, and that's OK. A couple of things this brings up to me though... "We" as a fandom were spoiled for many years. When he was touring, we'd get immediate recaps, clack, and news almost every day. Same when he was in Spamalot. In the back of my head, I was saying "enjoy this now, it's not going to last forever." And I was somewhat right. I've been in fandoms long enough to know that the hyperintensity of a new fandom doesn't last. I do think, though, that many didn't realize that fandoms work this way. In other ways, though -- this year has been far from a drought. We're getting Clay on Bold Blend at least once a week, and his Wake Up with Taylor gig is semi-regular. Yes, I know...not singing. But, to me, I love being able to see and hear Clay talk on a regular basis. No matter what...I love him, and I love FCA.
  3. For those wondering, merrieeee made it to Istanbul! She has posted pictures on Facebook. Looks like a fun trip!
  4. Oh, I agree! It's frustrating listening to them, especially since many of the other side don't listen either. That's actually one of the reason's I like Carrie and Bold -- all sides do try to listen.
  5. The red glasses were a great touch! But then, I love Clay in glasses, period. As for your other comment...I rarely agree with Carrie either. BUT -- I think I need keep trying, and keep trying, and keep trying. Every so often, there's a nugget that she says that might make me go "I didn't consider that." Sure, it doesn't happen very often, but when it does, that's something to build off of. I guess my point is that we as a society can't just give up trying to listen to other sides, just because we don't agree. I'm pretty sure that's NOT what you are saying ninna, so hopefully you don't take offense!
  6. Home today, so I got to watch live today...and Carrie read one of my comments! EEEEEEEEEE!
  7. Bold changed their cover banner on Facebook. I like it!
  8. merrieeee, I hope you have the trip of a lifetime! Please be safe, and have fun! I'm off for a few days, so hopefully I'll be able to keep up with stuff here (in case Clay decides to go on a Twitter rampage or something). But be patient if I'm not posting immediately... If it's public knowledge posted on CV, feel free to bring it over!
  9. Carrie's got a crush! Way back when, she would have been on the shuttle so fast!
  10. merrieee, safe travels to you! Icky tropical storm -- go east, young storm!
  11. She's talking about the shooting of the lawmakers while they were practicing for their annual charity baseball game. Republican Majority Whip of the House Steve Scalise was shot (he's recovering) along with three other people. It looks like the shooter was targeting Republicans. Very sad situation. Clay didn't tweet about it, but he was on Wake Up with Taylor yesterday. If you get a chance, download it from the vault and listen, especially to the last hour. (If you're using that download, start at about the 1 hour and 51 minute mark.) It's a discussion of friendship -- and we learn quite a bit about the JNT 2005 tour, with Nick and John Dahlstrom. Clay also started a story about Kim Locke, but didn't have time to finish it. He says he's going to be on Taylor's show again next week, and he's promised to finish this story. (BTW, Clay doesn't mention ANY names...but those of us in the fandom can pretty much figure it all out...) Pretty juicy stuff, IMO. I'm amazed at how much Clay reveals to us on Taylor's show. That's why I enjoy it so much -- it feels like we're just talking, even though I know full well it's not that kind of relationship at all. This would have never happened, IMO, even 4 years ago.

  13. I had to stop about a half hour ago to go to work, and now I can't listen. What I did catch: He was wearing the shoes he wore to a certain show in a certain state a few weeks ago. He "owns" the fact that they didn't match the rest of the outfit, and was trying to convince Taylor that she needs to do the same thing. They then started talking about the name for Taylor's fans. Clay had suggested Taymates on one of his last visits, but Taylor now feels that rips off his Claymates too closely. So, they were looking for suggestions, they were going to whittle it down to three, and then have a poll overnight. Most of the names suggested went over my head, but then, I don't listen to her show regularly. *g*
  14. Almost forgot! Listening now... He's talking about repeating clothes.
  15. Happy Father's Day to all Dads, especially Clay!
  16. I just finished watching the episode, and I thought it was really good. I remember seeing that story about Gobi last year, and followed it through. Great human (and dog!) interest story. Clay does a fantastic job of moderating the panels. He's still opinionated, sure, but he knows how to temper it all. Love it. I have 9 people so far who have expressed interest in the ad. Thank you all for speaking up, and I'll contact you later next week for how much, and if it will work for you. There's still time to contact me as well.
  17. Celebrity Friendships No One Understands. Clay's part is about the 3:00 minute mark.
