  1. The Very Best Of Clay Aiken....EEEEEEEEEEEEE! I request an acoustic version of MOAM and since On The Wings Of Love was scrapped as the B-side to TITN...I want it......I want it...I want it!
  2. :thbighug-1: lightmyfire. Nice to see you. Hopefully Clay will use his blogger which he already said he would do, soon!! Nice to see you also Couchie, thank you. :thbighug-1: aikim - I understand that the majority of the fandom is celebrating, but I just don't find the news of Clay not being signed by a major label or any label for that matter as one of a positive nature. I am saddened by it. clayzor - ciao....yes..I am disappointed. Hopefully soon we will have news that he has been picked up by another label and his voice will be recorded, published, and distributed in the near future
  3. My sentiment in respect to the RCA label news....
  4. I can understand that specific sentiment. I find it totally acceptable for some to embrace his sexual orientation, but have issues with Clay's dishonesty with the fandom for five plus years. Clay LIED. I am stating that he lied and doing so without prejudice. Do we really have the desire to go down the homophobic route without justification? I hope not. I hope this fandom finds the road to peace while embracing a calm approach to the struggles of some. There was a moment in time in which this fandom was a great, positive force in respect to Clay's professional life. Perhaps, this is the m
  5. My hope is that Clinton takes her fight to the convention in August after Saturday's disgraceful R&B committee proceeding. For this party to allocate delegates based on exit polling data is undemocratic and defies its constitution. Once again this election cycle, the Democratic party will put forth an elite, out of touch, left wing extreme ideologue who will be defined by the GOP as a radical against a national narrative of national security and trust in which the Reagan Democratics will flock to McCain, the flag bearing POW. Gotta love the Democratic party which I have supported my entir
  6. Fair enough. But then again,"this fandom" is an over-rated excuse utilized by people, also. I continue to doubt that "we" have that much control over this corrupt industry, just as I continue to doubt that DJs and program directors at corporate-owned stations have all that much power over which songs they play, regardless of fan behavior. Have there been/are there some regrettable, damaging, and abusive things done/said in the "defense" of Clay? Sure. But if the fans, as a group, lose the reputation for enthusiasm, that's taking caution too far the other way, in my opinion, As long as t
  7. I agree 100% with Clay's assessment. Payola is an over-rated excuse utilized by this fandom. Clay nails the reasoning behind the lack of spins due to the age demographic with advertisers and the spamming of the stations/program directors (regardless of the formatting) from the onset with TITN. Thanks for your perspective, lmf. Very interesting.... And it confirms what I always thought. To me, blaming the lack of payola is the simplistic reason for lack of radio play. But it does offer some the opportunity to blame Clive for something else! You are welcome. If you take note of the

  9. I love ATDW. My response to YSRN and Claygasm in defining the term 'cover' was never meant to devalue any of Clay's cover work. I defended ATDW prior to listening to one note over at the OFC. I have the battle scars to prove it.... Clay is a vocal stylist in my opinion and I have great respect for his glory chords...regardless if he is recording a cover or not.....Even though I may not particularly care for or gravitate to a certain song/track, I always find some aspect of his phrasing that touches me. :F_05BL17blowkiss: keepingfaith I am thinking of you....
  10. Each individual has a different definition of what they consider a cover... I consider any track that was recorded and published first, the authentic version regardless if it was a hit or not.
  11. Ciao babe! A cover is a new take on a previously recorded song. The original is considered the authentic version. A cover is taking the authentic version and recording it with an alternative measure/fashion. Clay with a ATDW made certain that he respected the authentic version, but gave it his interpretation, his twist to the covers as he did with Solitaire.
  12. A spectrum of emotions... I have been saddened by the mess that has been revealed since the Morristown M&G. Just simple sadness. I am happy Clay is heading to Broadway. Just plain happy. A new year is fast approaching and my hope is that 2008 brings y'all what your hearts and souls desire. Y'all are good people. :F_05BL17blowkiss: Happy Holidays
  13. If this is directed at me, I have never stated nor have I implied that you and Ansa are advocating the distribution of Spamalot clack. I was simply saying, that I believe that clack will be obtained and that she will have access to it. Not here... I will say it again, I regret posting my thoughts on the subject. I apologized. Now, I am done.
  14. Ansamcw I believe that I caused the disconnect due to my inability to equate clack to drug addiction/withdrawal. I regret ever posting my thoughts on this subject. Having said that, I believe that you will get your Spamalot clack and I hope you enjoy it.
