I can’t let 11/11/11 pass by without a mention.
This may be my shortest blog post ever.
I was wondering if anything EPIC would happen today. So far, nothing out of the ordinary. The way I figure, God may not be keeping time the same way we are. LOL We could be hours off by now.
Anyway, I was on Adamofficial.com and I realized I had 10100 posts. So I thought I would go on the thread I call home, the “Indigo” thread and share post number 10101 with my Glamily there.
Just as I type “10101″, someone on TV says,
“It’s a combination of zeros and ones”.
Does this stuff happen to any of you?
It is now 11/12/11 and I must add to this blog. Back on Thursday, November 10th, I was chatting on Skype with my Webstress about the whole “Beg For Mercy” scandal which now has Adam Lambert being sued. There is a free download of the single that was emailed to a ton of people and there is talk now of the song getting released to radio. As fans of Adam, many are confused as to what to do. Should we call radio stations and unrequest it?
Well, I have to admit, I have never bothered to call a radio station to request ANY of Adam’s music or anyone’s music since 1974. I shared this story with my Webstress on Skype:
The last time I requested a song on the radio was when I was in ninth grade (1974). My sister and I stayed up all night and decided to request a song and see how long it would take to get it played. We requested “Rocky Mountain Way” by Joe Walsh. Some time hours and hours later, they fucking played “Rocky Mountain High” by John Denver.
At work yesterday during a break one woman mentioned her son in Colorado. The man sitting next to me started to sing, “A Colorado Rocky Mountain high….” I turned to him and told him about the radio request I had made years ago. We had a short discussion about his owning both albums and he started singing a mash-up of “Rocky Mountain High” and “Rocky Mountain Way”. He started singing it again in the line to punch out at the end of the work day.
I was going to share this story in my blog yesterday but I was tired and figured the story wasn’t interesting or funny enough. Many things like this happen to me, especially with stuff on the radio, that I can’t possibly share all of them. This morning I woke up at 3AM and was thinking that perhaps I should share this story and one about the word “babushka” because they happened on 11/11/11.
At 5AM the alarm went off. The song playing:
“ROCKY MOUNTAIN WAY”
Has anyone else ever waited 37 years to hear their radio request?
