So, I leave work and realize that they've closed the road I usually take home. So I make an unplanned detour, and I'm sitting at a red light, and I look up and see Clay & Ruben staring down at me from a billboard. OMFG! Hell has frozen over. I fumble with my blackberry, hoping that the freaking light stays red long enough to get a picture. The van beside me is inching up impatiently, almost blocking my view, but I managed to snap a quick picture.

Hopefully I'll be able to go back and get a better one this weekend. I can't believe that it's being advertised in the middle of downtown London (about 1.5 hours east of Windsor)!

ETA that I am 3 songs behind but I will try to catch up on all of them this weekend.

I'm more than that behind, but I can't stop looking at new clack. :flirtysmile3:

Thank you so much for that photo! Quick reaction time there grabbing it at the light. I'm impressed!!

I was able to snag all the pics from the slideshow if anybody wants one in particular.

Cindilu2Could you snag 25 and 40 and 43 for me? I would like to make one of thme an avi.Thanks so much in advance!

I have been absent for a week or so and have been very remiss in doing my song thoughts. I have some good excuses-week long professional conference and the unexpected death of the former chairpeson of my department. But I still feel like I have an overdue paper to finish. I haven't had much time to read back and I really want to see people's impressions.

Have we had an embarrassment of riches or what in the past week?! I haven't been able to catch up but I will admit to watching Those Magic Moments an inordinate number of times.

He's too sexy for any damned shirt. And LdyJ, no matter how hard he may try to remain homespun, his nerd days have passed him by. He can wear suspenders, put bear grease in his hair, and talk like he just came in from the back 40, but that's One Hot Dude and he can't hide it. Our Sweet Homeskillet is too hot to touch! Aow!

Thread title!!!

Sweet baby jesus.

I think we crossed the border into big jesus country now.

keeping... BWAH!!!

Grr! Ok so just when I sold my house with a pool they have to come up with a beach blanket for sale at the OFC!

Well, pool or no pool, this guy needs more of my money.

keeping... I keep trying to put myself in Clay's place. The man must have been in heaven and a hot pocket! He's performing and interacting with one of his idols from theatre and then the man sits in his lap... BWAH! I'll bet that face wasn't just to be funny, but a real "I'm in heaven, pinch me" feeling for him... and funny! LOL

Just came up for air from the Mutt Media/Popeater video & photo extravaganza to say...I'm baaaack. Good gawd that man is precious and deadly sexy without even trying! :flirtysmile3:

Ya know how it seems obvious when a Clay pic has been taken by a fan? How it's all about how "we" see him and the photos are almost always better than professional ones because they're taken from the perspective of love? Well, these 63 lovely gifts given to us today appear like that to me. I think it's one of the few times I can recall this happening. Especially with sooooo many of them being real gems!

But only 63? Surely they could have taken 6 more. The man deserves 69!! :whistling-1:

Ok, enough chit chat. Back to fondling my AOL screen.

liney23 stole my avatar. *pouts* But I am not sure I can part with the Clay/Reed anyways. However, I love the crooked smile pic. cindilu2, can you make me a wallpaper of it, pretty please? wink.gif

This is SO cool!! I think I might've driven off the road, lol. I've been hoping against hope they would put one up (since they advertise Casino Windsor concerts all the time) and I'm thrilled to see it!

And I'll work on that wallpaper for you :-)

I just downloaded and listened to Scarlett's clack of Clay singing In Whatever Time We Have in duet with Lauren Kennedy, and this will go on my list of the best Clay has ever sounded. His range is phenomenal, unearthly, and wildly spectacular from the depths to the heights. You're getting the idea I like it, right? I'm finally convinced that he needs a Broadway show of his very own.

And I don't think that's a falsetto. I think that's his freaking amazing RANGE. WOW! Putting that one in context with TMC and TITM and MTK and everything else that night --- he's a National Treasure.

Cagney, "embarrassment of riches" is exactly what I'm feeling, along with "my cup runneth over."

Hee, the almost driving off the road part happened in my excitement to text you about it. ;)

Tweet today from the girl that took the photos.:

Check out my photos of Clay Aiken: RT @clayaiken Check out "A Day In The Life" with Clay on @popeater! http://bit.ly/ClayDayLifeh

This is her site. She's really good.

She really is good - she's captured Clay 'like a fan'. These are some of the very best professional photos of him I've seen. I am kind of disturbed to see some screencaps/snags of them out there with fan's tags on them - she deserves credit (and they put her name on the article and on the slideshow). I don't think they'd do that to a 'fan' photo, so shouldn't do it to hers either, in my opinion.

Annnnd, now that I've said that I realize I misspelled her name (Diane not Diana) on the wallpapers I made. Ooops. I took the links away (in case anybody cares, lol) and will put them back once I fix it.

Getting ready to leave the "vacation" hotel, shifting to the "convention" hotel. Sigh. This week has gone by way too fast.

Is there any way someone could snag for me (and maybe make it into wallpaper size) the photo montage that starts the whole photo shoot? Instead of having to choose one Clay, I could have almost all of them as a wallpaper...

To the sisterhood: thanks for being our "constant." I like changing my avatar every so often (about as often as Clay changes his hair!), but it's always nice to see those classics as well!

I'm way hung over on all the awesome pics- I can hardly pick a fav. This gal has to be a fan to capture how WE see Clay. Hubba Hubba!! :flirtysmile3:

PS It was good to meet you " jmh123" ( and friend) at the Marriot before the show Mon.

Well, I'm not changing my avi but that's because I'm too damned lazy. Plus, how would I decide? He's been gorgeous so many times.

My poor TnT has not had much of a workout this week because I've been addicted to watching and listening to the BBH clack. He is just too wonderful.

Howdy, ncgran4clay! It was my pleasure. Stick around and post some more, OK??

The song of the day remains the same. I'll be back in a minute to post it when I find out what it was yesterday. Heh. We will figure out eventually how to get back on track, but for now, it's a delight to be too preoccupied with other clack to play.

ETA: The song of the day today is

Breaking Up is Hard to Do

Nope, I had some hair of the dog early on this morning. In fact I had the whole dang dog. I put the BBH videos on my iPodTouch last night and watched them in bed this morning while intermittently scrolling through the 63 popeater pics I had also loaded in. I was way late getting up for coffee, and that's unheard of.

The song remains the same? Not one of my favorite Zeppelins, oh, you mean ... never mind.

I was just thinking about this Solitaire thing. Clay had a huge night on Idol with Solitaire. He had a hit record with Solitaire. He wrote that, as a child, when he visited Vernon on weekends his father would sit for hours in an easy chair playing Solitaire. Now Clay is addicted to Solitaire on his iPad. Adding to the Solitaire theme, Clay now claims to be a bit of a "hermit." Okay, that's all I've got.

Well seems like plans are beginning to work out for me to join some of you in Chicago and Raleigh through a generous clayfan. I'll need all the strength that I can get to work overtime to pay for all this. :dancetom::dancetom::dancetom:

Cindi... so, the fabulous pics were taken by a woman. I think women have an easier time seeing the real Clay. I wonder if he feels threatened by men that they might judge him, so he puts up more of a wall with men. That's 5 cents for the couch time. LOL

keeping... thanks for the pretties!!! I love the look on his face when he's looking at that baby!

I wonder if he has realized that he and his dad were both Solitaire players. I'll bet he doesn't play it around Parker, tho.

Preden... congrats on being able to go to both CHicago and Raleigh! We expect good recap, by the way!!!
