  6. Well, someone is looking very Hollywood! :wink: Please, keep on spoiling us with videos! :biggrin:

  7. Is there something wrong with the site? I would think there’d be more comments than this…. anyhow, still playing it, luv this cover

  8. Most people seem to be chatting with each other on Twitter these days.

  9. Y: ssoooooo with you on this!!!!!

    Regarding where they are living – – Sebastian reported they are not getting an aptartment right now. They are staying with Olympia DiCarlo (Alex’s IICD piano instructor, extraordinaire!)

    Uhhh MEEEE! I’m totally with you on that alleycatfan! I usually describe him as adorable, but he’s def looking pretty damn hot in this picture, lol. LOVE the outfit, LOVE the hair, and lovin the new earrings too. And he & Sebastian did a GREAT job with this cover!! Alex is stepping up his youtube game & his style too…I likey… :cool:

  11. Yup! Alex is steppin up his YouTube game!!! 2 videos in a little over a week. I can hardly wait ’til next week. And didn’t Alex say something about being in a “cool” meeting yesterday? Hmmm. Wonder what that was all about. Things are happening. I can feel it. Can’t wait for this Josh Skinner interview. Maybe we’ll get something.

    ps. I love the hair, and the ears. Mucho adorable (sorry Katherine…I just can’t bring myself to say he’s HOT…but he is)

    @Y Sorry that I haven’t commented yet. I absolutely love Alex and Sebastian’s voices together. They blend so well. You can also tell they’ve been singing together for a while. The familiarity is so apparent. I wish the song was a little longer but I’ll take what I can get. I’ve been listening to it repeatedly on good speakers. It is amazing. That’s why I want a longer version.

    I asked Sebastian via twitter about dropping the “f” bombs and he said he got carried away. He tried to find a way to bleep over them before uploading, but he didn’t know how, ha ha. And we thought we had to worry about Alex. It’s all good. :lol:

    This is nothing new to any of you, but Alex’s voice just has to be in today’s music industry. In my opinion a label would crazy to pass on him. His voice is so special, so uniquely Alex Lambert. There’s nobody out there who sings like him. It has such a soothing tone and quality, especially in Changes. Oh and The RASP! :wub:

    Alleycatfan I agree. I’m liking his new avatar look. Love the way he did his hair. Can I ask why he didn’t rock this style for the Children’s Dream Awards? This is more like it. YESSSS
    I’m even fine with the earrings.

    Yesterday was a very good day. I especially liked this tweet from Alex:

    “What up! Just got out of a cool meeting! It feels so good to actually be writing my own songs;) love yall! Mahalo!”

    It makes me very hopeful that great things are coming soon. What’s so weird it made me think that possibly someone is talking a publishing deal. At least I hope so. :wink:

  13. @Lauren – a publishing deal would be AWESOME for Alex. It’s the best way for him to make money off of his own music. There’s more money in writing than just being a singer.

  14. Ahhh just got home..God they sound good together!! More more more please! I need this music in my life LOL! @Lauren, yes that tweet from Alex was a very good sign. And Alex is looking good…lol still rocking the white tee, but who wears it better eh??

    Cathy: sorry Katherine…I just can’t bring myself to say he’s HOT…but he is)

    I hear ya Cathy…. :whistle:

  15. now that is the Alex we all grew to love. The performance/harmony was great. I wouldn’t give a nickel for some of the lyrics though.

  16. alleycatfan: LOVE the new avatar pic…he just needs to edit it where he doesn’t chop the top of his head off, He’s never looked HOTTERRRRR …WHO’S WITH ME ON THAT???!!!

    haha, Me!… I am! :lol:
    BTW, I really like this version of the song. Alex and Sebastian sound great.

  17. For once, I did not notice the white T–that’s how good the song is! Plus, I was too busy studying Alex’s earlobes and new hairstyle. LOL And watching Sabby produce those nice harmonies.

    I agree that his tweet sounds like a publishing deal is in the works! That would be a great first step for him. And yep, like snuffles said, that’s where the money is! Royalties, baby! lol

    @Lauren, when you wrote that his voice has a “soothing” tone, I thought “YES!!!” that’s what I love about it. Especially when he keeps his voice soft, and doesn’t belt, like this cover song illustrates.

    All I can say is, “MORE PLEASE”!!!

    I agree Diane. The first thing I noticed was his hair, and then my eye kept catching the sparkle on his ears. haha I thought WTH?! When did that happen?! lol :wassat:

  19. I LOOOOVE coming home from a hard day and being greeted with a nice surprise from Alex!! :sideways:

    When his album drops I think my head is going to explode from excitement!! :biggrin:

  20. I knew Diane would come around to Lovin’ the White T -j/k…On the double ear pc’ings I am a Classic movie buff…Will anyone get this reference besides Miss Granger?/and no cheating!! He’s going for the Roman Castavet look :cool:

  21. I’m glad to see that the video has finally gotten over 1,000 views. I guess it was the typical YouTube delay…or maybe the fact that he tweeted it in the middle of the night. Anyway, Sebastian said yesterday on Twitter that he didn’t know anything about YouTube. Maybe he and Alex should have a training session with Andrew Garcia. He’s a YouTube master.I’m sure he could help them accelerate their learning curve.

    I know – it was stuck at 303 views seemed like all day!! Then – all of a sudden jumped to 700! Happy to see the numbers over 1K today too, Cathy! I wish he could get one to go viral – like all the little kid singers seem to be able to do!

  23. Y: Is there something wrong with the site?

    I doubt there are any “TECHNICAL ISSUES” with this site & it looks as if the normal fan base who comment have done so. I relly doubt the new vid will help much to increase the fan base.

  24. chipp: I relly doubt the new vid will help much to increase the fan base.

    Chipp, Now why do you say something like that?? ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING HE does from this point, is good for his exposure = new fans….Yes there are “regulars” here who comment freely, but there are a lot of visitors also that do not comment and just come to read and get info on Alex. Of course, it would be nice if those visitors could comment more, but that doesnt mean they are not supporting and promoting Alex as we all are.
    :heart: :heart: positive thoughts and encouraging words :heart: :heart:

  25. The whole thing about new vids on Youtube and expusure is misleading in Alex’s case only and here’s why…His IDK vid. was seen by at least 450k people on Hulu, if you just count the Episode edit., because those were the weekly viewers of IICD direct to Hulu TV show at that time…Then there is an unknown to me amount of people who watched the regular video edit on Hulu’s front page. Also, the unknown amt. watching on IICD Homepage, then literally dozens upon dozens of Clear Channel sites, and misc other postings like MTV Brazil, then the iheartradio mobile app standalone, Myspace-24k etc…So at least with his most known vid., the exposure is MANY times that of Alex’s Youtube hits
    Also Youtube views alone don’t always translate into how well a single may chart- Melinda Doolittle’s only single to chart-“Its Your Love” has about 64k views right now for the official Video- after fully TWO years, and that is on her Number one Youtube slot -I’ve followed her for years and that’s the biggest hit total she’s received for that single, and there is hardly anything else on Youtube for that track. Anyway, that single peaked at Number 29 on one of Billboard’s MAIN charts…So, Youtube hits don’t always tell the story… :biggrin:

  26. @alleycatfan – Great info on IDK!! Thanks!

    A general statement on a fansite – – If you are fan, PLEASE be a fan.

  27. chipp: I doubt there are any “TECHNICAL ISSUES” with this site & it looks as if the normal fan base who comment have done so. I relly doubt the new vid will help much to increase the fan base.

    Here’s the way I see it, Chipp…maybe this one video will not increase the fan base significantly, but Alex IS stepping up his YouTube game. I hope that as he learns more about YouTube his videos will do even better. He resisted doing them for so long because he said he wasn’t computer savvy. He’s learning. The more he does the better he’ll do. Eventually he will hit upon a video that has the perfect combination of great tags, good timimg, and relevance with the YouTubing crowd. When he does, it will bring in lots of views. And guess what…when they come to watch that video, they might just stay to watch some other videos. In the meantime, I’m really enjoying them. So, Alex, if you’re reading this….keep ‘em coming.

  28. Right – you can’t PLAN a “viral video”. No matter how hard some of you try. :wink: But it WON’T happen if you DON’T put stuff out there.

    So Alex putting videos out there is still a good idea. You’ll never know when something will hit. Maybe Alex should cover “Do It Like A Dude” or something scandilous like that.

    OMG…”Do It Like A Dude” would be hysterical…. :biggrin: But you are right. The only way to get a viral video is to first POST a video….so I hope he keeps trying….again and again and again. :heart:

  30. Just got caught up. Of course, I agree that I love everything about our evolving Alex. And, Sebastian — well, I just love that guy.

    Y’all already made the important points. Alex needs to post as many youtube vids as he can. He’s done a couple. Crap, if I can do it, anyone can. So, keep promoting Alex. It’s all about the BUZZZZZZ.

    P.S. What great taste in music — Price Tag is ridiculous, I love it so much! And, Tupac, well, I always loved him. GREAT WORK!

    We knew this all along, but if anyone is still wondering why the plug was pulled on If I Can Dream, just take another glance at CKX’s financials. We laughed that the employee who was responsible for the twitter feed was on vacation for months, but sadly it appears that person may have been terminated. 19 has closed the offices in London and New York. Hopefully the company’s restructure will help. With this revealed I somehow wish that a better company would come along to properly manage Alex, but I’m not even sure that he’s still with 19. So we wait. :ermm:

  32. Actually here is a more detailed article than what I posted above.

    http://biz.yahoo.com/e/110309/ckxe10-k.html

  33. @Lauren – I must admit I’m curious too. Maybe Alex is with Fuller’s NEW company XIX. Or just with the Recording arm of 19. Who knows!

  34. Yeah, that truly is the way it is. You know, that’s the way it is about whatever is going on in your life.

    I listen to this joint and I feel it.

    I think this duo is hot.

  35. Gah!!! I don’t know where the best place to post this recent tweet from Josh Skinner – so I’m putting it with the most recent!! I love Josh Skinner!!

    # Josh Skinner @joshskinner

    Busy Monday. Caught up with @TrueAlexLambert at Starbucks. Lots to catch up on. He’s the real deal

    :cool: :wub: :cool: :wub: :cool: :wub: :cool:

  36. Yayyy! So excited to see that tweet from Josh! Can’t wait for the interview, I hope we’ll finally get some news. And I love Josh, he’s such a wonderful interviewer! :w00t:

  37. @Diane I remember in an earlier post that you said summer was the worst time to release an album. Well it appears even Kelly Clarkson can’t even release her music during that time. If she can’t, then who can? She wrote this on her Facebook page yesterday.

    Kelly Clarkson
    “I recently found out that my album won’t be coming out until September ….the album has been recorded but I can’t release it until then. I realize that is a long time but that’s the best time to release it apparently so I’m sorry for the wait but I promise you it sounds great!”

    As far as Alex is concerned who knows what happened yesterday with Josh’s interview. I hope that it will be rescheduled but that remains to be seen. Alex assured his followers via twitter that:

    @TrueAlexLambert “Everything in my life is so Great right now! Everything’s on the right track and hopefully soon I’ll have some musica for you all to enjoy;)”

    Yes I surely hope so….

  38. RE: Kelly

    All labels take a look at the competitions release schedules and decide when to release THEIR artists accordingly. In the coming months Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Beyonce are coming out with new music. The market is gonna be crammed with pop divas. RCA is probably worried that Kelly will get lost in the shuffle if she releases at the same time.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
