I’m so down with his support of the Yankees. And plus, he looks like he’s in a gang and I kinda like it. Well, I guess a gang that wears sky blue, American Apparel hoodies…. but whatever.
He’s probably listening to an on-tape book of 101 Ways To Get Your PhD.
Oh, and add dance director to his resume because in June, in NYC, he’ll be making his dance theater directorial debut in Collage and will narrate each performance.
I don’t even know what that means, but I should get tickets.
*spoiler alert* I’m going to bombard you with Adam Shenk music right now… just deal with it. Trust me. It’ll be okay… it’s great music.
And I’m going to need you to pretend it’s from the actual show I saw. I forgot my camera… and that doesn’t shock any of you.
You all know my obsession withe J Biebs’ swag…. well Adam Shenk can give him a run for his money. All I kept saying last night was, “he has so much swag… it’s ridiculous. I’ll never be this cool… I love him”. I think Claire Bear cried at one point, Alex danced like she’s never danced before, the straightest boy in the world fell in some serious bromance love, and I sat in awe.
Adam Shenk played at The Bitter End in NYC last night and this was my first Adam Shenk Swag Master experience. And it was great. It was a swag master class as far as I’m concerned, and it was scored by some awesome pop music.
This guy is so super talented… I felt as if I was watching an old school Justin Timberlake bang out some sweet pop/R&B tunes.
Now… again, since I’m a moron and recorded nothing of this, I’m going to post old-ish videos… but you get the idea.
“Suitcases”… this is my jam.
“90′s Medley” <3
“Black & Gold” & “Fugee-La” (There is a stand up bass involved and you guys know what stand up basses do for me. Amirite?? *high-five*<– that’s my shout out to Casey Abrams. Heart.)
“Warning Shot”… this song was awesome live last night. Trust me.
And unfortunately, I do not have video of “My Freakin’ Heart”, but this was my favorite. Last night was the first time I met Adam… but I’m pretty sure he knows my heart and soul and wrote this song for me. Is that too much for me to assume?? I think not.
I only feel that way about Taylor Swift songs, so you know this is legit.
I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed this show. He is so talented, has so much charisma and is very nice and extremely grateful throughout the show and after.
Oh, and by the way, I’m pretty sure he likes Titanic.
Why else would you take a picture by a massive ship?? There is no other reason. Me and him should probably be close friends by next week.
And for any of you who care… I did not lose my phone, I stayed up really late, and woke up with great contentment/regret. Good f**kin times.
That is going to be the title for every one of my Lee D in Texas posts because to me he’s a cowboy down in the giant state of Texas. I’ve never been to Texas but I’m pretty sure people would know I didn’t belong the second I open my mouth, but people are nice in Texas right??
My first question is…. were any of the Bush’s there?? I’m pretty sure George Bush (Senior and Junior) would be massive Lee D. fans just because he’s never had a child out-of-wedlock and the Bush’s seem to be pro-no baby unless you have a ring on your left hand.
Is it too early for political jokes?? Probably. Definitely no political jokes before 10AM. Sorry!
Anyway… Lee D. was in Texas A&M last night, and I have no idea what that means but my friend went to that University and said it’s a giant ass school so YAY LEE!! I love when he plays giant ass shows, because that means more people will go and see him and there is potential to lasso in some new fans! HAH! Get it?? Lasso!
Ready y’all for some video.
1) I wonder if Ben Harper hates this song now that he’s getting divorced?? Is that true or did I just spread a rumor.
2) Are dudes recording this??? They’re probably cute frat guys from Texas. I’m going to need confirmation on this.
3) Is Lee D. wearing cowboy boots??
4) This is me pretty much demanding answers from people who were there. Sorry.
5) Linc the Sink needs to get a new American Apparel hoodie. He wore that already… he wore it 3 times already.
6) Lee D. covers this song like a champ. A rock star.
7) There are so many finger prints on his guitar he should probably get a cloth and clean that. He could never commit a crime because Stabler and B.D. Wong would catch him.
That was a good performance. I approve that <— I don’t know why I said that, like it matters.
I’m gonna go find more videos! <—- check me out recapping “on time” and doing some legwork.
Wow… I feel like I haven’t written in weeks. But in reality it’s been less than 24 hours. I’m addicted. I wonder if Betty Ford would take me?? I should call Dr. Drew, if only to stare at him while he analyzes me. And yes, I have a little crush on Dr. Drew… it may just be the intelligent, authority figure-ness of him that gets me.
Anyway…on my ride with Big D and Mamadukes back to NYC, I think I’m super important and check my email on my fancy phone. I see an email from Twitter with a picture. I click on the picture and my world changed.
A Kick Ass Lee Fan, who I believe may go by that name on a regular basis, is truly a kick ass Lee fan. She sent me that picture above and it made me smile instantly. I giggled and had to explain to Mamadukes and Big D about this Lee bear black market trade that goes down on Twitter. They were concerned for my safety of course, but I assured them, every human being on Twitter is safe, and especially the Lee dealers.
Many things went through my head, and lucky you, I’m going to tell you:
1) Aw what a cute picture!
2) Linc the Sink def got that zip up at American Apparel.
3) Lee got that red shirt and hat from whatever store when he was 17.
4) I should stop being sassy to Lee. I’m starting to feel bad.
5) I like that red shirt though. He must be good at laundry… it’s so bright.
6) I really love that hat. Hat of all hats. Hat to end all hats.
7) This is so close to my dream picture of Lee bear wearing that fun hat.
8 ) It’s as if he’s teasing me.
9) I’m gonna write about this.
As the picture sank in… I began to get a little mad at Lee bear. How could he take a picture and be in such close vicinity to Linc the Sink, and not take a 2nd picture with the hat of all hats?
One of two things is happening:
1) He is taunting me. He knows this is what I desire from him most of all and he is just dangling it in front of me. I imagine this is how a dog feels when a family is eating dinner and not sharing. I instantly feel awful for not always giving my dog some food.
2) He never reads this, has no idea who I am, and therefore doesn’t know anything about my bizarre request.
I don’t know which one is worse or which one sits with me best.
#1 annoys me, because that’s just mean. That isn’t the way to treat someone who will interview and therefore tell the world what kind of person you are. I will make this my opening paragraph if this is the truth. I can see the title now… “Lee DeWyze: Nice Guy or Tease?” Totally award-winning piece though.
And #2 is the most logical, but I like to live in a fantasy world, where I think he makes a priority to read these words and lives by them. It crushes me to think I will never get this picture.
And I guess there could be a #3… he may know about this obnoxious request of mine (and I believe everyone else…. in the world) and this is just a little hint that it’s coming. A tease… but not meant to be cruel.
Whatever the case may be… this picture is such a little gem. Such bros the two of them.
So Lee bear… now that you have time off no excuse my friend. Sad story Linc the Sink isn’t by your side now, because now you have to waste money and go buy a hat like that. It’s totally your fault though because you were with Linc the Sink for like 2 weeks and that hat was within reach. How about a deadline of January 2nd??
I’m assuming Lee bear had a show last night??? I have no idea to be honest, but I feel like he has been playing shows every night this past week, so I’m going to make a giant assumption that this is what he did last night as well. And if this did indeed happen, you know it was a cleverly titled show. I.E. Very Merry Berry Mixer… Christ-Mix Jam…O Holy Jam Session (okay that last one was completely made up, and not very funny)
I can’t find video of this show (I admit I only looked briefly and then got distracted, but I’ll look some more.. promise!) but I got some pictures!!!
For all we know these pics could be from a week ago, because I’m pretty sure this is the same outfit he’s had on all month.
And don’t worry I’m not turning on my favorite Lee bear. I think I said this before, but I’m a super fan of repeating outfits… when you gotta pay for laundry and/or hate doing laundry jeans can go a week (or two) without a washing. (Permitting of course they aren’t completely filthy… don’t be gross.) Don’t judge me.
But, I’m thinking he should probably get another t-shirt just to fool us. Add a pop of color. (I have no idea why this always turns into a fashion blog when I talk about Lee D. It’s never my intention, I promise)
Orrrrr maybe he is super rich and has 100 black tees from American Apparel (which is super fancy fancy) and 100 pairs of Abercrombie Jeans and 100 leather jackets (but he definitely only has one hat). And now he is judging me, (because I’m sure he reads this like a religion) and calling me a skank behind my back because I admitted to not doing laundry everyday. Now I’m embarrassed.
Anyway, you can see Lee bear schmoozing with the fans and some adorable children (who are fans as well because we had this discussion the other day) HERE. I don’t know who runs that website, but it’s a gem. Always has the latest pictures and just fun stuff. So good job person!!
This next picture is unrelated… or at least I think so because he has the same outfit on. So this may be from the same night… or last week, or when he was 17. Who really knows… and I don’t really care.
You can see all thee pictures from this event HERE. Another wonderful website that has more great things.
On a slightly related side note: Lee D. fans could rule the world. You have your shit together and your investigation skills are awesome. You could probably find Osama Bin Laden.
As I was writing this sorry excuse to post Lee D. pictures I’ve been listening to this (someone sent this to me awhile ago)
1) Alvin the chipmunk is so angsty.
2) My roommate walked in and I had to explain what I was listening to… I couldn’t find a reasonable excuse for me playing this so loudly, as if it was an actual song, so I changed the subject to the stormy weather. It was very awkward moment between roommates.
3) I listened to it 6 times as I wrote this…and if my math is correct, that’s about 21 minutes. And it took me a whole other 3 minutes to do that math so let’s say 24 minutes.
I know Lee bear, I know. And hey… you have the same jacket on.
