  1. Wow! that was fun. We always come through for Alex.

    Hmmm, the Viper Room on February 4th. I wish I lived in LA. :sad: But I’m definitely gonna get there soon. Wanna come too, we’re planning a trip.

  2. So apparently this band “Hey You” has a bassist named Brett DeCarlo (thanks Molly for the info.). Another connection to Olympia? I think so…..I love that he’s hanging with Olympia.

  3. Woo Hoo! Congrats!

    • Yay Alex! Number 5!!!

      I think we’ve accomplished what we set out to do… meaning there is NO NEED to have another go this month, right? Let’s just… bask for a while!

      Besides, with all this talk of upcoming shows, we’re gonna have other stuff to be talking about!

  4. YAYYY! The Alex Lambert snaf are unstoppable, hehehe. Great job team! I must say though that I’m all Mr. Twittered OUT! I agree Kass, let’s bask in our great accomplishments for a while! :biggrin:

  5. Katherine: YAYYY! The Alex Lambert snaf are unstoppable, hehehe. Great job team! I must say though that I’m all Mr. Twittered OUT! I agree Kass, let’s bask in our great accomplishments for a while!   (Reply)

    I agree, I’m all Mr. Twittered out too. :lol:

  6. LOL! Honestly, I’m thrilled that Alex is number #5 and the site #1 (natch), but monthly voting? I just can’t do it! I’m exhausted just thinking about it. OMG! We all know Alex is our own Mr. Twitter and we also know that this is the best fansite ever…so…let’s just bask as Kass says.

    So, who’s going to the Viper Room Feb 4th? I’d kill to be there, but I just can’t go right now. Felicia and Snuffles, aren’t you in LA? Are you going?

  7. THANK GOD that’s over! I seriously hawk-eyed the clock all day to vote. Even at work. In fact, I made my co-workers next to me vote. They did it so I would leave them alone mwhahahaha

  8. Oh sweet victory..Alex taking 5th place for Mr. Twitter and the fan site securing the #1 position. I think we all had fun during the process. There’s not a more supportive group around than #TEAMALEXLAMBERT. Congratulations!!!!

    Last night Alex had another great twitter party to which many of us were in attendance. For those who were unable to make it I posted a few tweets and replies that I found interesting or entertaining. Please add more to the list as I can’t go back through all of them. Enjoy :smile:

    My favorite tweet and reply was the following because it represents how much Alex’s fans mean to him.

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert Heeyyy :D Hows your day going?;)
    A: Goin Great! I”m chillin with my fans at a party! It don’t get much better than this!!

    Some music related tweets:

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert. Do you have any idea where you will be playing in LA???
    A: Everywhere

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert The Viper Room????
    A: Eventually to the Viper Room

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert Are you creating any of your music on a keyboard? It used to look so easy for you.
    A: Yeah! I’m gettin good at the piano! I practice everyday for hours!!

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert Do you have a new keys player in your band or are you it? lol Can’t wait to hear you guys.
    A: I’m it.

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert What are your favorite lyrics from one of your songs?
    A: I miss your voice, anything else that I hear is just noise

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert Do you know how many peeps will be in your band?
    A: 5

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert Hey buddy are you going to be releasing an album
    A: Hopefully soon. Next step is playing gigs.

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert When are you releasing music???
    A: Soon

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert When are you going on tour?
    A: Hopefully soon

    Now for some of the comical ones:

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert I bet you are. I guess u read that we have ADD (Alex Desiring Disorder)). What are we goin to do about that?
    A: Aderal

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert How ya doing Alex? Miss your face!!!
    A: Go on Google!! or Youtube;) haha jk

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert I think that he’s the fastest tweeter ever!LOL
    A: I am

    Q: @TrueAlexLambert Did u forget about your twitter gf?? ):
    A: My twitter GF is someones chest!! haha

    There were discussions about height, Vegas and the Superbowl. He also tweeted that he sometimes talks to people from the dream house.

    It was another great twitter party. Alex always gives 110% effort in trying to respond to everyone’s tweets. It means so much. I really don’t know how he does it so quickly. Just another one of his many talents I guess.

    Thanks again Alex. :wub:

  9. Thanks for that Lauren! I thought I kept up pretty well, but see a couple things I missed! I missed the comment about the Dream House and the “I’m it” about keyboards!

    You’re so right that Alex gives 110% effort when he really stays on to “chat”. I think he actually replied to my very first tweet! I think I said> Hey, Alex. R u TCB? and he replied> “Kinda”. I’m not sure what that means?!

    It was also funny when he said he had to go and then reappeared within a minute or so saying he got “kicked off the computer”. Then he said he had until 8:30 (which was about 15 more minutes), but then only stayed on another 5! It was an awesome TP!! :heart:

  10. Thanks Lauren!!! Once again, I missed the TP, but reading the summary is awesome! I just love his funny, witty responses. So, next step — getting us out to LA for those live performances! It’s got to be spring though because I am definitely not flying until all this snow and ice disappears. Totally housebound for now — way too icy for driving — or even walking.

  11. Lauren:
    Q: @TrueAlexLambert Do you have a new keys player in your band or are you it? lol Can’t wait to hear you guys.
    A: I’m it.
      

    Diane’s not so sure about this..She said she was joking with him about being the keys player. If he only ended “I’m it” with his signature :wink: there would be no question.

    In any case he’s making great progress with the piano.

  12. @Lauren, my comment about becoming the keyboard player was in response to his reply: “I practice everyday for hours”. Really? Every day? First off, where does he have access to a piano every day? Second, why would he practice so much? You just never know with Alex when he’s pulling your leg, so I just joked back to him about being the new keyboard player. I just don’t know if he was playing along with me, or what. I can’t believe he’d be good enough to take over the keyboard duties, no offense, but maybe if they only use a keyboard on a few songs it would be OK.

    Really, I think a keyboard sound is much more suited to his R&B/Soul sound than a acoustic guitar. Also, it’s great to compose music on a keyboard. I wonder if he’s practicing at Olympia’s house? Just thinking out loud here, I think I need more coffee (hey, it’s only 9:30am here!) :lol:

    @Diane he and Olympia seem to be running in the same circles presently. She could have easily set him up with a keyboard wherever he is staying and maybe she is continuing to teach him also. We all remember how much he loved to compose music on the keyboard when he was at the Dream house. I bet he is practicing for hours a day. As far as him being the keyboard player, if he is assembling a professional band, then I would think that person would be as well. Not saying anything against Alex, but he’s still learning. I wonder how his chicken wings are now, LOL.

    I was thinking about something earlier in reading his tweets. When someone tweeted him to see when he was releasing music Alex replied “soon”. When someone tweeted him asking when he was releasing his album he replied, “hopefully soon”. Only speculation here but do you think that he was referring to the CD of cover songs or a single release as being soon? I’ve been thinking about the cover CD. Is it part of 19’s strategy to get his voice heard again and to build his base up before releasing his first album? Geesh look what happened to Lee DeWyze and he won AI. I would rather them develop him slowly than to release his album too early and like he himself said “get his music shelved”.

    Anyhow I do think that we will have some new music “soon” and I don’t care if it isn’t an album of his songs, just so his voice is on it. :w00t:

    @Marianne I thought about his “kinda” response. I think that he’s more or less waiting to perform which sounds like it will at the end of the month.

    Enough from me. Ha ha :unsure:

  14. Ha ha, that was an experience….show the dedication for our Alley to be sure! Congrats to our #1 Fan Site!!!

  15. Lauren: Q: @TrueAlexLambert How ya doing Alex? Miss your face!!!
    A: Go on Google!! or Youtube;) haha jk

    Lil’ Smarty Pants :tongue: …I think I have wore out friggin google and youtube!! LOL

  16. @Lauren, forgot about his “chicken wings”. Ah, good times at the DH. Why couldn’t that show still be on, damn it!

    One thing I wished I’d asked him last night, is who is booking these club dates for him? I mean, he can’t just wander into the Viper Room and ask to be added to their schedule, ya know? LOL Next time Alex gets on twitter, someone pls ask this? I was wondering if maybe Olympia was going to be his manager, for stuff just like this. 19 is in shambles, so there’s nobody strategizing his career, I’m afraid. Although, remember at the start of his tweeting last night, his first tweet was about “Iain” or some similar name, being on his phone. Not sure what that’s all about.

    Unfortunately, this is not a good time to be managed by 19. Gina Orr is doing a fabulous job for Crystal, I think. Definitely has her act together. Your management needs to be 110% committed to furthering your career. grrrrrr…

  17. Congrats Alex and the whole site!!! woohooo! This really is the number 1 fansite!

    Regarding Alex tweets… I too am wondering what Olympia’s role is in ALex’ career right now. Im thinking shes his manager also… I kinda hope sooo at least he has direction. ALso when ALex tweeted about “Hey You!” and their gig he said he’ll be there with his crew…. anyone know whi his “crew” is?

    Great summary Lauren! Thank you! It’s so hard to keep up with the tweets, it’s so fast. He actually didn’t answer my question right away b/c I think he really tries to answer as many people as possible. I asked Alex if he will have a single coming out anytime soon. And he answered “Hopefully! That would be sick!” He keeps saying hopefully & soon to music being released so I sure hope that’s what will happen! I think so, it’s a good sign that he’s gonna start playing shows. Can’t wait! :happy:

  19. Katherine:
    I asked Alex if he will have a single coming out anytime soon. And he answered “Hopefully! That would be sick!”   

    Sorry I left you out Katherine. He had 2 responses of “That would be sick” then. the other one was to the question if he had ever been skydiving or going to the prom… :dizzy: I couldn’t keep up.
    @Diane I saw that “Why are you talkin on the phone ilan???” and I thought about Iain too. Who knows??
    @Y Maybe the crew is his band, but I think if Alex was playing he would have made that information clear. If I lived in LA, I’d be going to the Viper Room on Feb 4th :cool: I’m just sayin’.
    Also it could be that Olympia is helping him out in the interim until someone else steps in.

    @Linda You’re not alone. My Youtube videos are worn out too!

  20. It would be great if Olympia is acting as his “LA Mom”. He really needs that type of guidance. I don’t think she’s managing him just helping him settle into LA and stay on track.

  21. Purple Melon are playing at the Roxy on Feb 24th… think Alex will be there? :wink:

  22. Great summary, Lauren. I was there for the whole Twitter Party and I still missed half of it. It just goes so fast, I have trouble keeping up. I usually go back the next day and try to match answers to questions. This was a tough one. There were sooooo many.

    He really seems to enjoy these parties with his fans. He’s such a sweetheart. I’m glad he’s got so much going on. Oh and I would so be at the Viper room on Friday. I’ll get out to LA soon. I’m determined.

  23. In terms of album, or single releases, they def. will not release until there is a deep level of promo. You must increase that name i.d. before release, and if part of that is playing tons of shows, so be it!! :cool: Its their call , we don’r know what all that they will do even before releasing just a single. With Lee, His name i.d. is strongest of all the season nine alums, as he was on by far the most weeks in front of tens of millions, so it was very disappointing to us when it didn’t sell as well as it should have; but part of it was due to very poor marketing…and that’s not Lee’s fault…

  24. snuffles: It would be great if Olympia is acting as his “LA Mom”. He really needs that type of guidance. I don’t think she’s managing him just helping him settle into LA and stay on track.  (Reply)

    That’s what I’m thinking. I don’t think Olympia is managing Alex in any official capacity, but she certainly can guide and help him — kind of mom/mentor. Definitely a great person to have in your corner.

    I agree. Their strategy HAS to be to get Alex all the name recognition they can before releasing and that means getting him out there and performing (YAY!). Fortunately for Alex, he’s already Mr. Twitter #5 (that’s worldwide recognition — even if it doesn’t mean much in reality — actually,I’m not sure what it means — haha)Anyway, imo, Alex is a waaaayyyyy better vocalist than Lee, so I’m not too worried about disappointing sales. Alex has been working full-time on his music for a year now and working with so many great people. Now, he’s got a real pro band backing him. I bet his shows are going to be totally :w00t:

    Can’t wait! LA in the spring kids!

  26. I still think Lee is a viable recording artist, if he is provided the right resources, and marketed in the correct genre, which he was not. I purchased both the single and album of Lee’s ,because Alex was, and is, so VERY supportive of Lee..
