Gobble, gobble: Adam Lambert, Thanksgiving & other notes

SoldoutMusic.com (curated by the effervescent Russ Marshalek) asked me to write an op-ed on the whole Adam Lambert controversy, and it's posted now at this link. I'm not a fan of his new song "For Your Entertainment," but the angry, homophobic, double standard being heaped upon Lambert and his performance at the American Music Awards has seriously pissed me off.

If you're looking for a stocking stuffer or something for the reader on your list, Amazon.com is selling Conquering Venus for only $10.17 during its Black Friday blow out. As a matter of fact, the few presents I'm buying this year are coming from Amzon, because they are selling books, DVDs and music for ridiculously low prices as it wars with Wal-Mart and Target for online sales.

I hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving here in the states. I'll be posting again over the weekend. I've got some book reviews for ya.

great piece. i hope lambert can find a way to mix music with activism, because homophobia persists.
i kind of wish i would have watched the ama awards; i've gotten so bored with so much popular culture, i just couldn't turn it on.

Adam Lambert is a stunning performer, period. He's too good for prime time TV.

Conquering Venus would make a great present-I imagine the scenes as if I had actually lived through them. Talk about getting a lot for your money! It's writing that transports the reader.

Great essay on Lambert. Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. Back from Vancouver. Too much work and not enough free time.
