NYC wins the Ryan Rock My Town contest (Fraumageddon II)

December 19, 2009

While Little Rock fought the good fight, NYC won the Ryan, Rock My Town contest. Kris Allen, Adam Lambert and Allison Iraheta will be traveling to the Big Apple for a big ol’ concert.

Fraumageddon II

YESSSSSSSS!!!!!

While I do appreciate Little Rock’s tenacity, hey, even Adam Lambert wanted to go back there because he loved the energy and enthusiasm of the crowd in Arkansas during the tour, NYC was always going to win. It’s easier/cheaper to fly there, and we all know there’s gonna be lots of crazy folk traveling to Manhattan for the show.

I’m even going to go! Oh yes, since its only a few hours from where I live, why not? I actually think it might be kind of good, mainly because I don’t have to hear Don’t Stop Believin’.

So who else is coming?

    Oh, right. Kris Allen fans are all svelte, all sane and polite (calling others “frauen” and “sparkle cows” notwithstanding, correct?), never pushy or stalkery. Talking about taking photos of fans at concerts, nothing weird about THAT, oh, no. Wearing Allen plaid and Converse sneakers at a rock concert is so very normal.
    Bwahahahahah!!
    Sorry, kids, but your age isn’t a free pass to not looking in the mirror.

    All the idols but her seem to have a small militant sect.

    The Sparkle Cows are not small in any way.

    Why don’t they just do a mini tour? All three of them could use the sales boost.

          IKR! The ONLY reason it’s a problem is b/c there are a few people who want to make it a problem. I didn’t get to go to any tour appearances, but from what I heard, by far, most people were appreciative of all the idols!

            I mean, I only had one encounter…Maybe the Glamberts didn’t scream as loud for Kris but only one person actually got up and left that I could see. I think the fantabulous of a Kradison concert would definitely outweigh any negative fanwar like behavior 🙂
            Side Note: Has anyone ever heard of a malicious Allison fan? All the idols but her seem to have a small militant sect.

              Sadly, there are some whackos on IDF who write lesbian fan fic with her in it…while everyone knows my feelings on fan fic, I have a particular problem when they’re writing it about kids under 18. Same thing with Archuleta. Not right.

    Screw all this fanwar bullshit. I just wish I could go to the damn concert! I would love to see Kris and Allison live again. I would even enjoy seeing Adam as a couple of songs from his album have grown on me and he’s fun to watch. I for one am hoping that it won’t be a war… ahhh, to live in a perfect world.

      The fanwar bullshit will never stop as long as people keep making comments like this:

      “I think that having the concert in LR would have been extremely shortsighted from a PR/Media/Industry Exposure point of view, and I’m very glad that Adam had enough business savvy to step up to the plate and save Kris from his abysmally shortsighted family.”

      Yeah, they totally sidestepped that landmine thanks to Adam. *rolls eyes*

          hahahaha! so much for my “fanwar bullshit” stance. Just hate that they choose to insult HBD’s family and somehow give credit to Adam for something that he had nothing to do with.
          I laughed when Jim C asked Adam about all the fanwar crap and Adam was like, “I don’t care where we do it” he also went on to say (not exact quote) “BTW- I am actually from San Diego/ LA- why don’t my fans vote for there?”

          Sparkle Cows- think all the glitter has gotten to your brains benches!

        Haha! I saw a comment,( I believe @ Mj’s) that said something to the effect that they were glad that the concert would be in NYC instead of LR, because that meant that “regular people would be attending.” (as opposed to the irregular people who would be attending in LR? HUH? Are they all fiber deficient? Or one leg slightly shorter? I’m assuming they meant “regular” in reference to the “fact” that the people in attendance would obviously be other Glamberts, seeing as how they were outside of that 50 mile LR radius. God knows there are no HBD fans outside that circle!)

          A lot of upper East Coasters view that entire region as country hicks. This attitude extends down to Maryland. Yes, we consider one state below us hickville but still feel that we are in Suburbia. Idk…I think that’s probably what they were referring to.

          • deez permalink
            December 21, 2009 6:50 pm

            You’re probably right, I wonder though how different that people in different parts of the country actually are? Different regions always have a reputation (which is based somewhat in truth, I guess) But over the last 40 yrs or so (with all the improvements in technology) I would think the differences would be less apparent (maybe except for accents). It’s just weird that so many of the regional stereotypes persist today, even among young people (notheasterners=pushy, rude, southerners=hillbilly rednecks, west coasters=laid back surfer/stoner types, midwesterners= fat conservatives).

            Yeah it’s OT…just wondering though, lol …I remember during the season that I read a comment from someone seriously wondering if Kris and Katy were cousins or siblings *rolls eyes*. (Actually there were several posters at Mj’s who said a lot of inappropiate things, but I think they were trying to start shit…which they did)

            • Lauren permalink
              December 21, 2009 6:56 pm

              Really, I’m sure there are differences but our stereotypes just exaggerate them. I mean I try not to stereotype but I fail…a lot.

              “I remember during the season that I read a comment from someone seriously wondering if Kris and Katy were cousins or siblings”
              Haha I read that somewhere too! Multiple times I believe…*Sigh*

              New Glambert theory:

              “I’m pretty sure it’s rigged. Seacrest does NOT want to go to effin’ Little Rock (no offense to Arkansas Adam fans).”

              Yes, Seacrest, who we’ve established is a SoCal surfer/stoner :), despises the South because of all of the inbred hicks. Isn’t he originally from Georgia?

                That’s a ridiculous statement. Even if it was rigged, I’m sure as hell sure that is not the reason.

    Fuck, Season 9 can’t come soon enough…even football season isn’t satisfying me (witness the end of the Saints streak tonight 😦 …sorry TI I know Brees is your boy).

    The whole set up of this show is wonky…wish they had made it clear that when they meant “Rock MY Town” they meant it literally, for only residents of THAT town. I have this creeping feeling its going to consist of mostly industry folks and feel more like a “private show.”

    • erinnthered permalink

      I’m not sure industry folks would go within 1,000 feet of that venue unless they have tweens they want to please. Nah, they’ll be at the first solo shows in NYC and LA. This will be Thunderdome.

    Gah. The fanwars are ON. People @ MJ’s rehashing the doings from past events. Supposedly fans would dump food on the seats of the fans of “the enemy” to force them to stand up for the set of their fav. We may see eye-gouging, hair-pulling, and face-slapping through a glittery cloud of plaid this year. Whoever gets tickets may want to point their cameras at the crowd.

    I hope there is no booing, walking out etc… I hope for civility (though judging by MJ’s, I wonder)…Adam, Kris, and Allison probably have NO IDEA the set order is such a big frickin’ deal.

    • lauren722 permalink
      December 19, 2009 4:56 pm

      Really, already? There will be booing and walking out sadly. I literally saw people obviously get up and walk past everyone trying to see during Kris’ set. My friend actually flicked off one of these people. I mean, I was wearing an Adam-tard shirt, but I would never consider being that rude! Even to Gokey!

    I live in NYC, so I might go, but I am not paying exorbitant prices, no way. Why don’t they just pick a large enough venue so everyone who wants to go can go ? They probably want to create a maximum excitement over the show by limiting the number of tickets.

      This really does seem like they misled in the marketing. I certainly thought it would be either in a big space, and free to anyone who showed up, or a simple lottery situation with the first so many people getting automatic tickets. Only 600 people? That should have been much clearer in the rules. I do love the stipulation about having to be from within 50 miles of the city, but again, they should have been clear about that too.

      The irony is that something tells me that if Little Rock had won, the city would have been a lot more accommodating with a larger venue. It would be a much bigger deal there.

      I want good Glambert footage more than I want concert footage at this point. Document the nastiness and entitlement for the ages! lol

        Gossip Candy ask for donations so she and her girlfriend could attend the Gridlock event. She raised enough money to cover her expenses in a few hours with money left over to buy a new outfit. Top Idol maybe you should do that.

        • TopIdol permalink
          December 19, 2009 3:20 pm

          It’s not that big of a deal for me, in all seriousness. And I know I have a donation button on my blog now, but that’s going to go to the cost of getting my “new” site up and running.

          I love everyone who comes over here and reads my stuff, you have no idea. I’m surprised anyone does. But as much as I love you guys, no one will be paying for my travel.

          Plus, I would want a trip to say, Iceland, than to the Ryan Rock My Town concert. Ha. But while it would be fun to catch the show in NYC, I won’t cry or die or think much of it if I don’t go. Hell, I wouldn’t even spend a ton of cash on a ticket for a super-duper incredible show of my favorite artists.

              Oh, that’s different. If someone gives another person a ticket, invites someone to go somewhere, that’s a different ballgame.

              I figure its the only way I’ll end up going, if someone has an extra ticket, or they go on sale and don’t cost a fortune, or I somehow manage to swing a press pass without trying very hard.

              I do wonder when its going to be, don’t you?

    As of now, the only way we know that you can go is by winning tickets (and you had to have voted for the winning city and live w/i 50 miles of it to be eligible to win). The whole thing is very vague on whether there will even be tickets for sale.
