So, Urban Myths, I noticed you added a "positive" review to the last post...surely in response to complaints that the site isnt "positive" enough! But you gotta wonder why none of these complainers are taking any initiative at all and posting "positive" reviews of these orbs shows in the thread themselves. But it seems my "manly and questionable virility" has cowered many of them from commenting about the orbs shows!(inside joke) Once again I have to comment on the sheer lack of enthusiam for the orbs tour...as I do to the orbs cd sales and his lack of award circuit success. Of course, just intuitively, I simply claim it must not be as successful as it was in previous years just based on all other trackable points...the aforementioned slow cd sales and the pretty mediocre youtube fan video mash up. 36 video submissions is pretty flat, surely by youtube standards. Cricket commented very excitedly about going to one of his shows last week and would be posting his/her reaction later that night. Well, the reaction was never posted, which just makes you wonder if it was a letdown for cricket! And believe it or not, that would not be a very abnormal or out of place reaction here at the Uban Myths blog site, this is not monkeyland after all!

Actually every "skeptic" I've talked to has really enjoyed all their shows and are looking forward to future shows.

There just isn't alot to talk about in the world of KUNK. They haven't really don't anything really bozo lately. NK and all things NK have been pretty quite..Thank goodness. And Keith is doing what we have wanted along. Give us kickass concerts and keeping it about the music.

...so here comes another comment by yours truly... a warning, because there has been allegations that I'm either an out of work bum, or am getting paid for commenting...since that is none of anyones business...just chill out peeps! So, why do I post? "peat and repeating" my musings on the orb's career, or more so concerning kidman, but truly, her career is so...universally acknowledged as being over, with even the flop of the all aussie...ozland extraveganza which was assumed to be her strongest asset, I dont feel the need to comment as often about her failed career. So why do I still comment so much? In the pre moderated comments days, the count of comments would reach 40, 60 even over 100... and now in the moderated comments section not as many...but, I am pretty sure that the urban myths blogsite, even now as in the past, gets more visits and readers than the amount who make comments. And that is who I basically target my comments to, the readers of this blog who may not be nessesarily commenting in this thread. And if I write that I thought kidman was not very successful in her last film because...she is a mediocre actress, or that her hideously bloated lips distracted from the role she was trying to portray, the numerous readers of this blog might read and say, "yeah that's right, I couldnt follow the story because her lips were so odd!" And I help build a consensus, as little as my effort may be, that kidman is not a very good actress and she then gets less visible film roles, (as is the case right now!) Then I've accomplished what I set out to accomplish And the end of kidman's film career...well dont worry, she will not end up in a homeless shelter or the soup line anytime..this century! And now I believe kidman's influence has ruined the orbs career, plain and simple, and I will "peat and repeat" that as well, whether I am proven right again or not...I will still press on...

I've been to two concerts so far on this tour, and I have at least 3 more to go in the next couple of months. I posted about my shows at Mohegan Sun - and I only have positive things to say. He is an absolutely amazing entertainer!!!! I've been to my share of concerts over the years, and I have to say that no one puts on a show like Keith. I'd love to comment on each of these "tour blogs", but I haven't been to any of these cities except MS so far. As I had mentioned before in a previous post, there was NO reference or dedication made to NK (thank goodness!!!!!), the only thing about her at the shows is that as everyone is walking out, there are credits rolling on the big split screens, and a recording of "Thank You" is playing, but no one is really paying any attention at that point!!! His shows/performances/guitar playing are awesome! I'm not only saying this because it's being pointed at here that people aren't talking, but like I said before, if I could go to more shows, I'd be writing about each one and how great they are!!!

Just wondering what your thoughts are on why NK wasn't at the CMT awards with Keith?

He looked much happier on the red carpet and actually looked like he was having a good time.

Supposedly she was in NYC working on her new film "The Rabbit Hole". I agree with you - he looked so much better and happier without her hanging all over him, towering over him, or making those posed/unnatural smiles. He looked real, not uncomfortable like when he's in a suit.
