rockinhamburger: (Adam)
So here I come with an angsty one. I don't know that it's all that good... I'm not so sure about the characterizations of these two in this piece, but I thought I'd share it anyway!


Adam gave Brad an advance copy of the album last week, which Brad's been listening to pretty much non-stop ever since. )
rockinhamburger: (Adam)


Adam put a bonus track on his European album release. It's called 'Can't Let You Go', and it is... phenomenal. I always had trouble deciding on a favorite Adam track (because I love so many of them), but this song makes it very easy. 'Can't Let You Go' is what it's all about. THIS is why I love Adam Lambert.

I love the emotion with which he sings every word of this, and the way Adam starts out in his lower range for the verse and just builds to this (as Ted Mosby would say) hauntingly beautiful sound that gives me shivers.

And the lyrics!

Guess it was not meant to be
It's not as bad at it seems
It only burns when I breathe
You saw the way that I felt
I'm better off by myself
That's the tale I'd like to tell

But it's not that easy for me to say goodbye
Everything in me wants you back in my life
Can't let you go...
Can't let you go...

It feels like dawn of the dead
The bombs going off in my head
Never a moment of rest
Nothing kills more than to know
That this is the end of the road
I know that I've got to let go


Wish I could just run away
To have all your memories erased
'Cause constantly they're haunting me

But it's not that easy for me to say goodbye
Everything in me wants you back in my life
Can't let you go...
Can't let you go...
Can't let you go...
Can't let you go...

I ♥ you, Adam! So, so fucking much!

EDIT: LJ is so weird sometimes.
rockinhamburger: (Cheeks' squee!)
Michael Buckley and Brad Bell

This has seriously been the best two weeks ever. I've been treated to so much fandomy goodness that my heart's just bursting with love. Neil and Cheeks' hang-out last night (which will result in what is sure to be an awesome video), Cheeks and Buck collaborating, Cheeks being the cutest thing since David After Dentist.

I fucking love this fandom!!! FANDOMS COLLIDE AGAIN! @buckhollywood and @gocheeksgo?? What more awesomeness can I ask for!?!?


I seriously have zero complaints! Even the weather can't get me down!

Oh, I'm in the process of writing a Kris/Katy/Adam fic. Interested?
rockinhamburger: (Cheeks' squee!)

Cheeks tweeted about Johnny being a good kisser!!!!!

Yes, he could very well be kidding, but he also might not be!!!!

ALSO: Adam apparently yelled at Johnny for not following him on Twitter, and now Johnny's following him on Twitter. Yelled, in this equation, equals fucked Johnny 'til he promised he'd fix it, right?


Nothing can bring me down rn. I am so fucking happy!!!

FIRST! AND! FOREMOST! *clears throat importantly*



*knocks on wood*


So, Neil Lambert, brother of Adam, actually went to Burning Man with Adam and Brad a few years back. There is pictoral evidence of this adventure. Why does this excite me? Because I knew it before Neil said it. Last week sometime I was looking up Bradam pics (as I ~occasionally do), and there was Neil -- not dressed in very much. And I really like Neil, so my heart did a little leap in my chest.

Well, according to his Twitter, it really was him, and I actually AM that ridiculously observant, and apparently know fairly well what Neil looks like on sight. 'Cause I'm a creep like that...

On Twitter, Neil set up a PayPal yesterday so people could donate money for him to purchase a piano, which he is reportedly naming Delilah. He's a decent piano player, and he's promised ridiculous get-ups and Adam coversongs if it happens. Adam tweeted to Neil that he totally would''ve bought him the piano if he'd asked for it. So Neil will probably donate the money to a charity and then Adam'll just buy it for him. Pretty sure Adam can afford it.

Dude. I spend WAY too much time caring about the Lambert family. I know you don't care about Adam Lambert's brother's happenings, but I really do so I'm lj-ing about it. Seriously, if my credit card wasn't maxed out, I'd totally donate some money to him. And not just to see my Twitter name in one of his tweets.




[ profile] itsmadeofgold wrote Sing Without a Song, a 40,000-word epic love story AU where Adam's a famous rock star who walks into the gay bar Kris frequents in Arkansas one night. THIS IS AN AMAZING STORY, which you must read at your earliest convenience if you are an AI fan, especially if you're into Kradam. Awesome characterizations, brilliant narrative, and scary-excellent dialogue. Read iiiiit!


To celebrate the awesomeness of today, I will attempt to write some fic tonight.
rockinhamburger: (Cheeeeeks!)
Oh fuck, I've been so bad about posting lately. Although, tbh, I'm not sure that's a problem considering I don't really have anything interesting to say most of the time! But yeah, I do want to type up where my brain's these days. SO!

+I am so FUCKING stoked for April 12th to arrive. That's when the Adam Little Black Dress fics will start being posted, and some (read: most) of my favourite AI authors are participating! I cannot wait to read the awesome fic that is sure to come out of this.

+I am also FUCKING stoked about Adam being on American Idol next week, not just to perform but to mentor the current AI folks. I haven't been watching this season - mostly because I pretty never watch the show in general - but I have heard that it's been kinda less-than-stellar. There's been, from what I can tell, some controversy over this decision because Adam is just emerging as a performer and there have been other people from Idol (people who actually won it) who could provide some great advice as well. Here's how I see it, though:

1) It'll boost the ratings. Adam'll totally bring back anyone who's been bored this season and stopped watching, and he has new fans who will probably tune in solely to see him do his thing. 2) It'll help boost his album sales and promote his summer tour. 3) Whether you loved him or hated him, Adam was amazingly versatile last season, and his guidance with the current group could actually be really vital. He really knew how to choose the right song, own it, and make that stage his bitch. He just went through the process, so it's still fresh in his mind, and he has the added bonus of becoming really big really fast which will give the contestants an idea of what they should expect if they make it to the end. PLUS: ADAM FUCKING LAMBERT IS GONNA BE ON AMERICAN IDOL AGAIN. FUCK YEAH!!!

I'm also excited to see what he's gonna do with Whataya Want From Me. I have a feeling he's gonna completely change it up, maybe rearrange the melody just to show how it can be done. We'll see!!!

+I'm 6000 words into my Glambert & Kradam bigbang fic. It's slow-going right now, due to my raging perfectionism which causes me to write a scene, hate it, and promptly delete it, leaving me with no idea how to proceed. I do know where I'm going with it generally, but getting there is the hard part of course.

I will also be finishing Soaked over at the kinkmeme very soon, hopefully by the end of the weekend. I know what I need to write; I just need to sit down and fucking write it.

+I've really gotten into The United States of Tara. Anyone on my flist watching? So, so good! Diablo Cody is a genius.

What's new in your world, bbs?

+OH YEAH, I got into the program and school of my choice for the fall. Now I gotta pay my tuition by the 13th, which is the hard part!
rockinhamburger: (Cheeks' squee!)
So, I know I should be working on my bigbang fic and my WIP for the current AI kinkmeme (and I am), but my muse doesn't listen to common sense like, 'uh, you have to write 20,000 words in two weeks; what the FUCK are you doing!?' Instead, my muse would prefer to make me write something completely different that came to me while I was at work today.

Rating: NC-17
Summary: Adam and Tommy are trapped in a stuck elevator, and Adam's a little amped up from their recent performance...
Pairing: Adam/Tommy
Notes: So this was something I filled out for a prompt at the [ profile] aianonlovefest. It's my first attempt at writing Adam/Tommy, but hopefully you like it. This is that fill, cleaned up and posted here.

'Dude, don't worry about it. If you need to... you know, blow off some steam or whatever, I can just listen to some music on my iPod and close my eyes for a while.' )

Title: Dark and Empty Skies
Author: [ profile] rockinhamburger
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Adam/Brad
Word Count: 3,800
Summary: Brad wants his parents to meet Adam. The evening doesn't go so well.
Notes: This was written as a response to the prompt left at the [ profile] aianonlovefest here. There's major angst in this, but there's also some comfort to make it all better. The title for this was taken from the song 'The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face', which has been recorded by several artists including George Michael and Roberta Flack.

Brad's hands keep clenching on the steering wheel and the gearshift. )
rockinhamburger: (Gaga)
I don't want you to go,
Don't wanna see you back out in the cold,
Air you're breathing out fades you to grey,
Don't run away, find me.

I know the battles of chasing the shadows of who you wanna be.
It doesn't matter, go on and shatter;
I'm all you need...

Broken pieces, break into me,
So imperfectly what you should be,
Lay here, it's safe here, I'll let you be broken open.
Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open.

-Adam Lambert, 'Broken Open'

..... I am in love with this song. (And maybe Adam Lambert. A little bit.)

My current song obsessions:

When your tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.
When it's in your spine like you've walked for miles
And the only thing you want is just to be still for a while

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
I'll be right beside you

When you're overwhelmed and you've lost your breath
Where the space between the things you know is blurry nonetheless.
When you try to speak but you make no sound
And the words you want are out of reach but they've never been so loud

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
I'll be right beside you

I will stay.
Nobody will break you,

Trust in me, trust in me.
Don't pull away
Trust in me, trust in me.
I'm just trying to keep this together, because I could do worse and you could do better

Tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I'll be right beside you
Nobody will break you

'Beside You'
~Marianas Trench

(Beautiful lyrics! And I &hearts&hearts&hearts the OH-EH-OH-EH-OH-OOHs... makes my heart swell everytime.)


Hey, slow it down
Whataya want from me?
Whataya want from me?
Yeah, I’m afraid
Whataya want from me?
Whataya want from me?

There might have been a time
When I would give myself away
Oooh, once upon a time I didn’t give a damn
But now, here we are, so whataya want from me?
Whataya want from me?

Just don’t give up, I’m workin' it out
Please don’t give in, I won’t let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep coming around...
Hey, whataya want from me?
Whataya want from me?
Whataya want from me?

Yeah, it’s plain to see
That, baby, you’re beautiful
And there's nothing wrong with you
It’s me; I’m a freak
But thanks for lovin’ me
Cause you’re doing it perfectly

Yeah, there might have been a time
When I would let you step away
I wouldn’t even try
But I think you could save my life

Just don’t give up, I’m workin’ it out
Please don’t give in, I won’t let you down
It messed me up, need a second to breathe
Just keep comin' around
Hey, whataya want from me
Whataya want from me?
Whataya want from me?

'Whataya Want From Me?'
~Adam Lambert

(I happen to know that Pink wrote this song, and, well, of course she did. Her songs always get to me. Adam sing this one beautifully. If you haven't seen him perform this on Ellen, you really need to. Gorgeous performance. His voice gives me shivers. I'm so glad Adam exists!! Never leave, ADAM!!)

ALSO: Congrats to [ profile] ewinfic and [ profile] htebazy_fic for the fic recs at [ profile] crackenterprise!!!
