Would you be okay with a complete stranger to taking a picture of you? If someone snapped a shot of you without asking, would you be cool with it? I wouldn't. In fact, whenever strangers have tried to take photos of me I've been fairly explicit in my disapproval. Why? 'Cause it's creepy.

Now, if I'm wearing something outlandish and someone says, "I love your outfit, can I take a picture of you?", it's a different story. The difference, I'm sure you'll notice, is that permission has been requested.

You see, Adam Lambert's brother, Neil (@negativeneil), is working as a roadie for the GlamNation tour this summer. According to Neil's Twitter, he's been running into some trouble with fans who wait outside Adam's shows and take photos of him while he's working, and he's grown increasingly frustrated with this and become more vocal about the subject on his Twitter.

Last night I read a snide comment in a community I love that called Neil an attention-seeking jerk. Now, it didn't take very much time or effort to work out what this commenter was referring to, and I didn't respond to the comment because I hate getting into debates in any community; doing so in the past has ended badly for me, and I'd rather avoid the trouble.

But it bothered me enough that I wanted to say something in my journal.

I think Neil's a cool guy. I definitely don't think he's an attention-seeking jerk. And if I were in his shoes, I'd be irritated by fans (of my brother, no less) taking pictures of me while I was working. Why? 'Cause it's creepy.

What do you think?

I love these two so much!





"Is this for the fans!?"

And this wonderful exchange:

"Well, maybe you could try some exercises?"

"I don't know how you would really..."

"This is a good one."

"Just that?"

"Mhmm."




Seriously, LOL!



I'll be so sad when this series ends.

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!?!?

ALLISON IRAHETA OPENING FOR ADAM LAMBERT! Awesomeness accomplished.

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?

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.


LOSER CENTRAL OVER HERE.


WHATEVAAAA, TODAY'S A GOOD DAY!!!

[livejournal.com 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.
