  1. Alex tweeted that he and Purple Melon are playing in Santa Monica tonight. Wish I could go sooo bad! Alex and the Melons together… :wub:

    I saw that! Did you get the feeling he was performing with them or maybe before them? Hmmmm. . . sounds like a good time!

  3. I don’t know. I was thinking he meant before them…But ooooh, with them would be cool! :cool:

  4. I wonder why the last minute tweet? Did the Melons impulsively invite him up on stage for a few numbers, or what, exactly? Hopefully, we’ll find out more about this later on…

    ETA: I hope the Bravo TV cameras are rolling.

  5. Man, you said it…Alex and The Melons together…what a show! Too bad most of us had to miss it. Fingers crossed someone captured some video for us!

    The Lambertini Cocktail: I was thinking along the lines of TexMex, but honestly all I could think of for a base was tomato juice of V8 — which I hate. I thought I’d add a little kicker to it or something.

    But, then, our Marianne came up with the perfect drink. It’s light, refreshing, you can make it as boozy as you want or sans booze. I made a batch last night and the reason I didn’t post any drunken tweets is because I brought it over to my cousin’s house where us cousins imbibed and yakked, made stupid videos, and jammed until very, very late. Fun time!! I really should act my age — NEVER!

    Anyway, I’ll tell you how I made it and then a much easier version.

    Brew some green tea, add honey to taste, and let cool. This can be kept in the fridge and drunk as is.

    To make the cocktail, turn on some Alex music, get out your cocktail shaker, add ice, pour a shot (or however much you want) of vodka in, add the green tea with honey mixture,and shake your money maker whilst singing along very loudly to the Alex song of your choice. Pour into Martini glass and enjoy! You can garnish with lemon if desired, but I didn’t. It would taste good, but lemon is really harsh on the vocal chords and not a good thing for singers to drink. So, since this is the Lambertini, I’m going with no lemon.

    The easier version, buy bottled green tea and proceed as above.

    It really is a tasty drink. Kind of like a Long Island Ice Tea, except not quite as intoxicating — depending on the amount you drink.LOL!

    So, get ready for the party!

  6. Janet/Marianne….very clever…yes tea and lemon, that says Alex for sure…I guess you could also add some ginger, like he did so often, if you so desired..lol Very Cool :wub:

    What’s this about Bravo TV? Why would they be there?

    Alex needs to give people more of a heads up!!

  8. LindaW: Janet/Marianne….very clever…yes tea and lemon, that says Alex for sure…I guess you could also add some ginger, like he did so often, if you so desired..lolVery Cool   

    Oooh, Linda – I didn’t know he added ginger!! Smart girl! If you make it Janet’s “authentic” way you could steep a piece of ginger root while hot and leave it in the mixture while it’s chilling. Now – I don’t usually drink tini’s ;) so they are probably never fizzy/carbonated, right? But another way to add the ginger would be to add a splash of ginger-ale?

    @Janet – sounds wonderful! Glad you liked my idea!!

    A Purple Melon tweet from last month:
    Purple_melon About to play a couple of songs in front of a huge crowd at anaheim grove for @bravotv awesome!! Going out on tv soon!

    I saw that Sam tweeted about playing with Alex last night, so it was Alex Lambert and the Lights. I do however wonder what Sam was filming for all day long before the show. Was it anything with Alex?

  10. Dang.. Alex def needs to give more of a heads up. I woulda drove there in a heartbeat. We need to get some fresh footage to satisfy our Alex addiction!!!!

  11. Hmmm, maybe it was a last minute thing. I hope some video surfaces, I agree Felicia we need some new Alex footage!

    @Janet Haha, I love your instructions for making the Lambertini. I was cracking up reading it. You are so funny! :lol: It sounds goooood, I’m gonna try it one of these days and Linda, I like the ginger idea, mmmm! :silly:

  12. Katherine: Hmmm, maybe it was a last minute thing. I hope some video surfaces, I agree Felicia we need some new Alex footage!

    It does sound good, doesn’t it!? WHEN I make a Lambertini I plan to use the LONG method. It just seems more AUTHENTIC, more LEGIT, like our Alex!! You know, guys, everything he does, he does it BIG!! :cool:

  13. Or…you could drink the Lambertini in one hand while you swill on a bottle of honey, (with the convenient pour spout), with the other–if you really wanted to make it authentic! :biggrin:

    @Lauren, thanks for explaining the Bravo TV thing to @snuffles this morning. I wasn’t up that early! I saw that same tweet from Purple Melon (but just spotted it yesterday after Alex’s tweet about the show, since I’m not on twitter or follow their timeline.) I hope their reality show actually makes it on the air–I know I’d watch! Alex spends enough time with them, that I would think he’d be in at least an episode or two. Maybe??

    @Lauren, Sam definitely has a bunch of irons in the fire. I don’t think Alex is involved, though.

  14. Sooooooooo …is there any video from this show yet? :whistle:

  15. Re: Lambertini Cocktail — love the idea of adding ginger. I would do as Marianne says and add real ginger to brewed tea. I figured the hot tea melts the honey and that’s why I did it that way. It would extract the real ginger flavor as well. What a healthy cocktail! But, there’s nothing wrong with buying prepared green tea. Hey, who said we could swill the tea in one hand while squirting the honey into our mouths with the other (“The Alex Method)? Too funny.

    No video footage yet? Someone had to be there with a video camera. So, we wait…

  16. @Janet LOVE IT-healthy too-green tea is very healthy,and vodka is the lowest cal/carb friendly spirit. Ginger is GR8,too and very healthy -leave it to cocktail inspired by Alex to=Perfection :cool:

  17. I can’t take any credit for the Lambertini Cocktail other than the idea of it. The ingredients were all Marianne. What a team we are! LOL!

    Remember Alex’s tweet re: wondering if we could blow up twitter with so many followers or something to that effect? I had another brainstorm (uh-oh, lookout). Wouldn’t it be fun to do our live chat party for Alex’s album release, drinking our Lambertini’s, on twitter. I would love it if we blew it up!! There’s an anarchist in me somewhere. He’d gain notoriety and even more fame for being the person who shut down twitter when his album dropped! I think that should be our plan rather than a private chat session. Just tweet until we break it!

    If you want to smile, check out my little niece singing to Alex. She’s 7, missing her front tooth, and funny. She got a little camera shy which is unusual for her. She’s 7 going on 27 in reality. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEEs_1sKRog

  18. Its cool Alex and the lights got to play with the Melons. They’ve been practising lately. He should have tweeted eariler so people know ahead to come see them.

    Lauren: Sam sometimes audition for some little modeling gig on the side. He was probably filming that or doing something with his other friends before he went to play with Alex’s band.

    The Melons are taping a performance for Bravo? That’s cool. I like the voice of their lead singer. I wonder which show its gonna appear on there. I know Kara former judge from Idol has a show about songwriters thats suppose to start on Bravo next year. ( I think its suppose to be on bravo) Maybe its for that or another show or just their own show.

    Janet: That’s cute and amusing your little niece singing and just strumming guitar anyhow without even looking. She even said mahalo.

  19. oh while watching Janet’s niece’s video on youtube I saw a birthday video Veronica’s best friend did for her next to it, and it has some clips of Alex and other IICD guys in it. Here it is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhOMm9AGJ5I&feature=related

  20. Re: The Lambertini Cocktail – sounds yummy!!! I’ll definitely be toasting good news about Alex’s album with one – with the vodka, thank you very much, and prepared according to your exact directions Janet!!

    PS Janet your niece is sooo cute with her little pink guitar!! “Mahalo!” LOL!
