A blog for fans of Clay Aiken. It may take a while but in the end, truth will win out over lies. Keep it clean, no threats ... and if I don't like what you say I own the delete key.

Silver linings


From John Milton's 'Comus' (1634) 'Was I deceiv'd, or did a sable cloud/ Turn forth her silver lining on the night?'

When I first heard Clay Aiken sing little did I know where falling in love with his voice would lead me. Because of him I've learned more about autism than I knew before. I've learned about the children of Uganda referred to as "Night Commuters" and the children who survived the tsunami in Banda Aceh.

I've found friends around the world. People who, even though they live in different countries, are very much like me.

I've learned about the recording industry, pay for play and pop charts. I've learned about "spin", that not everything you see or hear is truth.

I've been exposed to unselfish acts of love and kindness among strangers and seen unfathomable hatred.

The silver lining for all the hatred that's been directed at us, as fans of this man and his voice, is that it has made us stronger, made us dig in our heels so to speak, and made us more determined than ever to stand up and fight. We're not giving up or going away.

I will use my voice to support truth and do my best to ignore the lies and hatred. I know I'm not alone.

This Just Received:

Sheriff Joe is making ready for the big day when certain celebrity wannabe stalkers will grace Tent City in Phoenix, AZ. In honor of one of the future inmates, Sheriff Joe has issued a directive that pink underwear is becoming passe' and they will start using lavender material with a darker purple gherkin print instead.

The 2 new male inmates, known only as JP and Groucho for security purposes, will each be given their own special pairs to wear. There will be no slits because, quite frankly, it would break the flow of the gherkin print in front. If the truth be known, the slits are absent because Sheriff Joe takes delight in introducing the newest inmates to their roommate, Big Bubba, so he can watch them piss down their legs. Usually Sheriff Joe takes away cigarettes and coffee from Tent City inmates but decided that superglueing JP's underwear to his skin all the way around would be a more just punishment. He will have to keep his own Lil Purple Fella to himself and keep Big Bubba out at the same time.

The new ladies??? (gag me with a spoon) will be making and sporting the same Gherkin underwear with a choice of designer tube tops that say KCE or 205 or I Ate One Too Many Gherkins at the Cafe.

Now that's a super-sticky situation to get themselves into. :)

I heard Big Bubba sings a mean rendition of Lavender's Blue

It goes like this:

Lavender's blue, dilly dilly,
Lavender's green
When you are Queen, dilly dilly,
I shall be King

I didn't spam your site.

Is someone impersonating you or do you have two identities, one with "S" as a middle initial and one without a middle initial?

That photo is not welcome here! None of us want to look at it.

Methinks the purple pickle has gone over the edge.

(Decompensate much, JP?)

Someone needs to call the guys in the white coats -- stat.

Oh thank God for collapsing comments.

Looking at that picture makes me want to hurl.

Taking a little time off from the blog, asswipe?

Go back to the pond - your fellow frogs are waiting for their leader.

If you click on the name and it leads you to asswipe's profile, listing his blogs, it is the true asswipe and not a wannabee.

Getting bored, asswipe? Things a little slow at your swamp of a blog? Don't cry. The Claymates don't want to play with you anymore.

Thanks truth rules for cleaning up asswipe's spamming.

It was him - signature led to his profile and list of blogs.

He's bored, I guess. Not much happening you know where.

I copied it all before I started deleting. Kind of dumb to spam a site using your own name. But then his elevator doesn't go all the way up anyway.

Maybe dumbass should go back and read the terms of service. He's constantly breaking them.

I'm going to go read what I deleted. If I see anything worthwhile, I'll repost it.

Then he definitely has two profiles. One for him and one for his ghost writer? Veeeeeeery interesting.

Well darn, I missed all the fun! I love the Silver Linings truth....

Hey Truth...great blog. There is NO WAY we can all be wrong...too many intelligent people, around the world, feel the same way. WE are justified in our love for this man, his voice and his heart.

Glad I missed the asswipe...he obviously doesn't have a brain in his head...

It's like he wants to get caught between using his own name while spamming AND contacting innocent people via email.

I hope he rots in hell.

Clay is going to be bigger than ever, we are not going away. His CD will be hugely successful -- let those who continue doing the devils work --have at it. It will be returned to them in ways they cannot even imagine.

Talking and discussing the positives in Clay's career is the way to get their goat; enjoying his beautiful voice & music is the way to upset them; having fun with other Clay fans, etc. is another way to bother them. All of this would cut the head off the snake/snakes.

Amazing - all that junk and this was all that was worth copying.

Follow Clay's lead. Silence. IMO

Rats! I took a shower and missed it. Now that I think of it, good thing I missed it or I'd have to shower again and it's not even Saturday.

I missed his post too - thanks for getting rid of it.

Sounds like asswipe's getting lonesome in his sty.

I think he's not going to like the new sty that's waitin' fer 'im. The chain gang here in Phoenix goes into the desert and cleans cacti with their bare cheeks. But seein's these are sajuaro and look like men along the road waving, he'll probably have a new outing a new romantic figger.

My former brother-in-law ended up in tent city for not paying child support. It proved to be a good learning experience for him. heh.

I think they have similar treats in store for residents of Louisiana. Chain gangs, maybe?

And who is this purple pickle y'all are speaking of? I think you just had a bad nightmare, all of you. Purple pickles only exist in an alternative reality, not this one.
