So you may have noticed that Logopolis has been on a summer break lately with very rare, very infrequent, and very sparse postings.
I'd like to say I was super busy writing the next great American something or another. Or that I've been having all kinds of summer adventures. But no such luck. I've just been lazy.
But no more. It's back to school time and I'm ready to school again via the blog. So let's see how many days in a row I can go with actually posting two posts a day. Starting..... now!
This morning, I got up to move the car because (a) I am an awesome boyfriend and (b) I did not go to the grocery store last night but yet still got Cherry Coke, so it's the least I could do.
1) The awesome. The director of Freddie Mercury: The Untold Story Rudi Dolezal told this story: "We all know that Freddie Mercury had very strange teeth, and we would all ask ourselves, 'A guy who was that rich, why didn't he change his teeth?' He was very afraid that if he changed his teeth that his particular sound of [his voice] would go away. So he was more concerned with his voice than his looks, and I think that says a lot about the man."
1) Unsurprisingly, Adam Lambert was interviewed, and while I agreed with him on most of what he said and found he said it well -- at least enough to prove he's not just a pretty gay face -- especially some interesting stuff about why Mercury's voice was great (this piece being a part of NPR's 50 Great Voices, it was therefore on target), I couldn't get past the first bit I heard aka "The most self-serving quote ever."
There's definitely something missing in today's music scene. We don't have a lot of men on stage doing flamboyant or theatrical. We have a lot of female pop stars doing it, but where are the guys?
could he be?
