Michael Corleone said it best: "Just when I thought I
was out, they pull me back in."
NBC.COM just put
up a clip of this band..and guess what.
THEY'RE FUCKING SINGING
"AINT NO SUNSHINE" A CAPELLA. Any
longtime 4tvs fans remember that?
Yup, the unplugged
set from 1999 - "Ain't no Sunshine" - I'm about to
lose my SHIT again. GODDDDDAMNIT.
So a boyband
singing a capella is acceptable when it's 4 people
onstage - but if 1 guy is doing
ALL THE PARTS LIVE? No, sorry - not gonna
happen on a FUCKING TALENT SHOW.
Let me twitch.
<zrrrrbt... zrrrrbt> TwItCh....
You know what -
they probably ruled me out because I do comedy as
well. See - THAT'S what is gonna piss me off -
and goddamnit Charlotte just let me vent. LMFAO.
I hear her
RIGHT NOW IN MY HEAD. "Adam, you
have to let it go..."
I FUCKIN KNOW I DO.
THIS IS PART OF THE PROCESS.
Most people just hide it because it's annoying. And
this project is showing what it's like...and guess
what - EVERY
ONE OF YOU WILL DO THIS when
you see the show. I swear to you.
Ahem - as
I was saying, I mentioned it before - but
had I done the MUSIC bit in the audition -
which is just the song and no break-down I would've
been in perfect "BALANCE" and would've competed
musically. However everything I gave them (the
live audition AND the DVD) showed the
interraction and although the
TALENT TEAM understood I could do more
I GUARANTEE YOU that as it got passed along,
no one saw the need to express that I could
DO FUCKING BOTH - or one WITHOUT the
other completely, and the people that made the final
decision thought that I only had comedy
This is a
nightmare! Seriously! I swear to you - if some
motherfucker performs with a TV on that stage
I am going to have a fucking TV bonfire in
my backyard. Christ - was it REALLY the Anti-American
thing? I was just shootin' in the dark before but
shit...you really gotta wonder. This is spectacularly
unbelieveable. I feel like I'm on a different
This is so
amazingly surreal to me. It's as if I'm actually on
the show - the marketing is FOR MY ACT,
THE TITLE OF THE VIDEO is for my
act... but they replaced the GODDAMN PICTURE with
some Asian dude....
THAT IS WEARING MY LIVE ADAM HAT AND SHIRT!!!
This is gonna have
some lasting effects people. Hang on - let me play
"Well come on
Adam, it's not like you could have competed
side-by-side in a "singing" category with such a
distinct advantage. I mean, it isn't REALLY a
HANG on more
yelling from ADAM:
WHY THE FUCK DIDNT THEY JUST CALL ME!?!?!
I mean they were obviously interested - the day
I spent on the phone talking to everyone - them
having to get the rights for the music, the dimensions
of the set... all this stuff - they were obviously
interested - why wouldn't they just CALL me up
and talk about it for 30 seconds?! Like: "Can
you do more music? Because right now we need that for
the balance..." or SOMETHING!??! I gotta say, I'm
really starting to believe that an anti-war protester
- which is what I was most known for at the time of
their decision (a fact that is unbelieveable to me)
just wasn't a direction they wanted to go in.
Honestly... it's the only reasonable (even if it's
completely UNreasonable) thing I can come up
Then again -
looking at all those acts...there's
ZERO UNIFORMITY. So maybe that's it! These guys
were too much like me? Can't have 2 boy bands from LA?
BUT IF THATS THE CASE -
I CAN DO STRAIGHT COMEDY!!!!!
NO SUNSHINE?!?!! FUCK IT I'm singing it now
- lemme set this up.
