Blue-haired ladies

I haven't seen a blue-haired lady since my kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Hall, sported that color. At the time, being only 4 years old, I thought she had beautiful hair. So different than anything I'd ever seen. To a 4 year old, she was the most beautiful "old" lady I'd ever seen. At 4, even a 20 year old is an old lady so who knows how old she really was. I had a girl crush on her.

I tried searching Clairol and there is no blue to be found. Blonde, brunette, red (partial to that color) but not a blue in sight. Same story on L'Oréal. I guess these two companies haven't yet got the word that blue is the in color.

Now, punk rock hair colors are a different story. I went Googling looking for somewhere to buy blue hair dye. (Gotta keep those critics happy.) First I tried Interpunk - yup. They've got it. In several shades of blue for the discerning granny. They've got After Midnight Blue Amplified Hair Dye (do we stay up after midnight?), Atomic Turquoise Hair Dye (for getting blown away by that killer voice), Atomic Turquoise Amplified Hair Dye (amplified when hearing that killer voice in concert), Bad Boy Blue Hair Dye (who said we were nice? we're baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad), and Black And Blue Hair Dye (for all the times our cute singer boy makes us fall all over ourselves). Oh, and there's one more: Lie Locks Hair Dye - best for use when dealing with lying swamp dwellers.

So what is it that makes blue hair cool for punk but uncool for anyone over 30. Dammed if I know. The airlines sure don't seem to mind. Haven't heard them complaining about the increased air travel of a certain group of blue-haired fans who use their planes to travel across country going to concerts and tv shows. As for the concert promoters and tv show producers/advertisers, I haven't heard them complaining either.

The hotels that sell out when this band of blue-hairs arrives on their doorsteps don't seem to mind either. Maybe the blue-hairs should start trashing hotels rooms - gotta earn that negative reputation somehow. It's just not right to have it without having earned it.

The critics must have been very upset last night when two young girls showed up on the Jimmy Kimmel show sporting their brand new Clay Aiken signature tattoos minus the blue hair. Somebody clue those girls in. It's not cool to love Clay if your hair isn't the right color.

While your at it, please clue in the Clay Dawgs too. Those guys either need to dye their hair or leave the Dawg Pound.

But you know what? Aside from loving this Clay guy and his music there is one thing they all have in common. The color of their money. It's green. All that green bought over 200,000 copies of that Clay guys brand new CD, A Thousand Different Ways making it the #1 debut album this week. Pffffft to the critics. I'll take my blue hair and my cute freckle-faced, red-haired, green-eyed, killer voice singer guy over them any day.

It's a phrase from the Sandra Bullock movie "While You Were Sleeping". It means getting a hug or little innocent kiss while putting your pelvis into it.

I would be leaning backward and pulling him over on me.

Clay's CD has been out for 11 days. We must get him airplay. Yes! Airplay!

Please visit: (Which is a directory of radio stations from all over the planet)

To find a station in your area (and if you wanna help Clay out, anywhere near your area or places you expect to visit in the future, etc) please be sure to request "A Thousand Days" ("Without You" is great, but A Thousand Days is a gem). Thank you!

Remember, Clay loves us and appreciates us all.
