  1. jmh, yes I DO know delu, she's from Memphis, and we've hobnobbed at the Tennessee Sweet Teas gatherings. Delightful lil ole gal. Last I heard, tho', she was nursing her husband after a stroke or other crippling injury, so I doubt I'd get her on the road to Grand Prairie. Memphis was probably her only option. I so appreciate everyone's condolences and encouragement to go to Grand Prairie. Until yesterday I thought I could do it. However, my daughter and son-in-law are splitting up -- she phoned me last night from a Holiday Inn Express where she'd gone to escape his harassment. They have tw
  2. Ya twisted my arm, OK that's enough, I think I will! Thanks for the support and hugs, Luckiest and jmh. I work part time doing transcription for 2 clinics, and have for years, and hub's always said, "My income is the household income, and what you make on your little jobs is yours." Well hey, I betcha I can come in under $500 even if I go solo and don't split a hotel room. I'll update as to whether I pull it off, so fingers crossed, thanks again.
  3. Hi all, I've not been in here posting in a while, just reading and enjoying all the EEEEEE's and clack links and purty man pix. I'm one who had a ticket to the Memphis show for Monday night, and I'm just crushed to find out it's been canceled. The ONE time he would perform in a city I'm right next door to -- the sole show I'd be able to attend for this tour. :em0900: While I was screeching my anguish, my hubby and son were trying to comfort me, and it suddenly hit me -- GRAND PRAIRIE might have some seats left? It's *only* a 6 hour drive from here? I could do it and snag a cheapo motel roo
  4. EEEEEEEEEEE!!! I got my tickets in the WKNO reserved seat section, hooray -- only cost me $100 a ticket, but for their PBS pledge drive supporters, you get to sit in a section up front! :nana: Yeeks, general admission. It's gonna be a crush I betcha. This will be the easiest concert for me to get to coz it's only 20 min. from my house. Clay hasn't been to Memphis since the AI2 tour. Now if I could only fit one more show in. It's a 4 hour drive to Knoxville from here. Hmm!!
  5. Hi gang, I've been away for about 2 weeks, and that's Too. Damn. Long. (Treenuts, feel free to jump in there GF lol) I've got sooo much catching up to do and Clack searching and downloading. Does anybody know if there's a sendspace up anyplace of some of the Chicago PBS show? After falling in love with Clay's duet "Crying" with Linda Eder, I'd luuuv to see them singing it there. The way they pop in and out of lead to harmony with each other is amazing!!! Mom was in hospital and then there were family goings-on, and I've just not been to the board. I felt as if one of my arms had fallen off
  6. "It's Impossible" is an earworm to me too. I get this mental image of Clay crooning it to Reed -- then Reed says "Dance with me. Don't worry, I'LL lead." LOL Also agree that he smiles when he sings "Ask a baby not to cry, oh how impossible." Got plenty of Parker's crying spells to remember, no doubt! UM is just sooo amazing to me. I've looked forward to a recorded full-length version of that for so long, just as I did "Moon River" after it *almost* made it on the Primetime Live show he did with Diane Sawyer. Oooh how cheated I felt when it didn't! but now we have it. UM is just exquisite,
  7. I really enjoy Clay's version of MTK altho' I miss Bobby Darin's "EE!" after "body just oozing life." When Clay did this on AI2, I thought it was a trap even tho' Paula said she chose it coz she felt he could do it -- then Clay came out finger-popping and cool as a cucumber and sang the fool out of it. When he sings "the shark has pretty teeth,dear," I wanna sing "You do tooo" LOL and I love when he gets into the sassy part about the wimmens lining up for Mack -- "Tawdry-EEEE!" Naturally that last lonnnnnng note leaves me going
  8. Very wise words, and I get that feeling as well. Show business is the type of place that chews people up and spits them out at a very rapid pace. I'm thankful that Clay has been able to navigate through the highs and lows and is still here. IMO it's because of his charm and talent, and I love it. Bolded part. Love this, but I'll also say that I'm willing to share him with anyone who may not know him... Off to an all day off-site meeting. I didn't get my chance to do yesterday's song of the day, and I may not get to today's as well! Anyway, song of the day is: Misty Hey, can I nominate t
  9. Now I KNOW I can listen to this one (have that particular station programmed in my car), and as I've been listening to this album, I've thought that it would fit perfectly on the Sinatra station. I guess I'll be home late Monday night! EEEEEEE! I don't get Sirius radio, but I'm EEEEE'ing along with you. It just fills me with joy to read, people who *seriously* love beautiful music write "he’s become a star in his own right." No matter *what* Clay's "next big thing" is, I still wanna pinch myself sometimes and say "Baby's STILL a STAR!" After all he's been thru, and we've been thru with him
  10. Catching up. Just passed page 3 but gotta put in my 2 cents on WKOFAI -- I was thrilled the minute I saw it was on the playlist coz I knew he'd nail this one. The two soft, plaintive words "... I am" at the end were different, and very good in portraying the emotion in the song. The delicious sound of his voice when it's soft and the glorious juicy glory notes just slay me every time. Totally agree, "Why can't I fall in love?" might have been Clay's lament ... before Reed anyway! Now back to browsing page 4.
  11. When I was growing up (back when Noah got off the boat LOL), I loved "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You." I was not anybody's baby yet, but that song put me in the mooood. When Clay started on my first listen, I thought "Aw, how sweet." Then once he got into Full Cry -- and how I LOVE BF in Full Cry -- I was gasping, EEEEE'ing and :Thud: That mental image of a music video of Clay watching and singing to Reed, followed by Reed watching Clay singing, is perfect, agree completely!! I had similar thoughts.
  12. My bud Treenuts told me to come here coz she was, so I did and LOVE y'all. Now how do I put up an avvy???

  13. Ooo Cindilu, THANKS for that biggie pic of Clay's TNT Live cover!! I saved that beauty immediamente you bet!! Yummmm he looks so FIIIIINE!!
  14. Helloooo sistahs, I've been away waaaay too long! Got the album at a *record store* altho' without participating in a CD release party. Dunno what's happened to the Memphis group I used to do those with, but some truly ugly emails got traded back and forth after Clay came out, so possibly they dissolved. I miss the midnight fun! Smacking myself, been a bad fan! Life was so bizzy the past few weeks that I'd not been reading here and I MISSED seeing Clay on GMA and The View!!! Aaiieee!! Thank God for YouTube Clay Aiken Channel so I could watch what I missed, and OMGawwwd but Baby was SO
  15. It's so lovely reading about everyone's plans for the Timeless tour! I'm only going to the show in Biloxi, probably, but oh how I wish it were more. Treenuts, I'm happy to see you're going to Reno -- good for you GF!! Haven't heard from you lately but wishing you the best and some prayers going up, too. Anybody heard whether Clay & Ruben are going to swap off being headliner, as he and Kelly did?
