Keith Urban, John Mayer & Tiger Woods! What a Threesome!


On April 30th, Keith Urban will be playing with John Mayer at a charity event in Las Vegas for a Tiger Woods charity. Are you surprised? Actually, we aren't. Keith has been selling his talent to the highest bidder for years now. He is one of the top draws in private corporate events where he can make a boatload of money, play a short period of time and get some press. There was recently an article on Billboard that said a lot of musicians will do these gigs to get the payout, including Bob Dylan. All of those things are like elixir to Keith Urban. The press is good, and the money too. Plus the people who are seeing him don't get a choice. They don't have to choose to buy a ticket. Draw your own conclusions about that.

The special part of this particular show on the 30th is the chance to perform with Mayer. Mayer, whose public persona is questionable to say the least, has been a pal since they met several years ago at the Grammy's. In a recent interview, Keith said that Mayer was very helpful to him with finding equipment after the Nashville floods. Keith likes musicians and Mayer is one of the best and they do perform well together. As for all that other stuff, the racist and sexist and just overall creepiness, that is John Mayer; Keith Urban doesn't give two hoots in hell what anyone thinks. Hasn't that become apparent? Golfing while Nashville floods, his marriage to Hollywood "royalty" and all the crap that goes along with that. He doesn't care. So why should we care about him? It is a question that keeps getting louder and louder for some of us; or is it answered by that old age tenet: it's like watching a car wreck, we just can't pull ourselves away. April 30th will be interesting for a lot reasons. The sideshow continues with no signs of stopping.

Actually, this appearence with the napalm at tiger "assembly line one night stands" woods' event is simply a manifestation of mutt and jeffs cluelessly addle minded and totally ineffectual PR. Charity is of course, Noble...and it is commendible when ANYONE does it...but in the case of celebs...it simply becomes just another cog or piece of their public "portfolio" to promote themselves. (Just go to kidman's official webpage...on the home page, she's got a link to UNwomen.org at the top and pictures of her on her last trip to visit the "unfortunates"...and where along side postings for her "charity"... she shills her movies!) again, it is soooo addle minded...no doubt visitors to her website will simply believe those pictures of her with the children of unfortunate circumstances was simply "research" for a movie role! By the way, since kidman put up this website last sept of 2010...7 months now...there has only been 6 postings in the "Updates" section...and 5 were promo for her last film and ONLY ONE for a UN Women charity function...WHICH SHE DID NOT ATTEND! See, it was held on Feb 24 2011 in NY...AND SHE WAS too busy in awards season in LA to bother to attend...and the Oscars were on Feb 27th! So it is this addle minded PR that orb now engages in. I mean, I can clearly see this...along with the fact that mutt and jeff are very boring and bland...and predictable and obvious...and ....well you get the point! It's not very hard to see why they are flailing, careerwise...clearly the fansie's dont want to see that!

maclen said...

Unsurprisingly...on the eve of orb's CLEARLY "addle minded" performance with the napalm..on behalf of the serial adulterer's cause...and for CHARITY no less...orb's results are looking less than stellar to put mildly! So after last weeks sales results from Roughstock.com...orb's cd sales were at his LOWEST at about 3,800 cds...here is this weeks sales report...

http://www.roughstock.com/blog/album-sales-strong-thanks-to-easter-week

15 13 Jason Aldean My Kinda Party 30,298 1,094,905

30 17 Taylor Swift Speak Now 27,324 3,361,961

35 28 Rascal Flatts Nothing Like This 17,970 781,177

36 29 Lady Antebellum Need You Now 17,863 3,449,923

55 47 Sugarland The Incredible Machine 11,881 959,367

58 52 Miranda Lambert Revolution 10,449 1,285,123

77 64 Kenny Chesney Hemingway's Whiskey 8,220 792,274

-- -- orb ???

...so while all the other artists on my list posted big to modest gains...it looks like orb's sales HAVE fallen below 3k...and again how many exactly is not known as orb has also fallen off this sales list! I had commented that by the time orb's US tour begins in about a month and a half...his sales could be at the 1k to 2k level...this pretty much shows that could be correct. And again to just review my comments...it is looking like orb surely DIDNT intend the tour to SUPPORT his album sales...because it clearly ISN"T! But I may be giving orb more credit than is deserved and he is simply winging it the best he can with all that he has left!

"Keith has been selling his talent to the highest bidder for years now. He is one of the top draws in private corporate events where he can make a boatload of money, play a short period of time and get some press."

Yes, as it seems pretty OBVIOUS that the orb is simply going to HIDE OUT publically till his "soul sucking" appearence with the racist sexist douche on behalf of the sleazy cheating douche...here is a sneak peak at what the orb may have up next...courtesy of the "last orb fansie in the entire world" over at E!'s orb "positive" thread, there's this...

http://www.shrm.org/about/news/Pages/KeithUrbanAtAnnual.aspx

Keith Urban to Perform at SHRM Annual Conference

"Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Keith Urban will take the stage June 28 during the Society for Human Resource Management’s 2011 Annual Conference & Exposition at the Las Vegas Convention Center."

...now it seems apparent that orb will no doubt litter the month and a half between this appearence with the napalm on april 30th and the start of his US tour in june being a corporate hack...playing for any business willing to pay the price of his obviously "for hire' new status! Obviously his status IS NOT selling cds. I should think he would consider doing gigs for the NAACP and NOW...but I doubt the orb would feel very comfortable at THOSE orgs...certainly not with the likes of napalm or woods!

OK, this would more likely than not be middle aged ladies with lots of spanx out on the town in Vegas fawning over the orb, correct?

Does that make him a corporate whore?

Maclen, did we kill him?

blue sky said...

LMAO - the SHRM Conference? I never pictured the day that he would be performing at that. I don't know which is worse SHRM or Branson.

Ha! Well, hoosier...actually that scenario comes later when all the corporate hack's money is way out of his reach! He'll be doing the bar mitzvah/bathelorette party ciruit soon enough though! And no doubt orb is finally hanging his head in shame over the less than stellar company he's keeping this saturday!

blue sky said...
"LMAO - the SHRM Conference? I never pictured the day that he would be performing at that. I don't know which is worse SHRM or Branson."

Yeah, blue sky...Branson is the ultimate stop for hasbeens...the previous stop is "corporate sellout!" I seriously doubt if orb EVEN heard about this so called "entity" before his "business manager" was able to fish out a huge paycheck for orb to be the "entertainment" no doubt to a packed house of the corporation suits and board members sticking it to their so called members...

http://www.hreonline.com/HRE/story.jsp?storyId=533332678

The current board of directors at the Society for Human Resource Management is overpaid, excessively secretive and does not value the importance of HR experience and certifications.

That's according to SHRM Members for Transparency, a new group that includes former SHRM presidents and board chairs that recently launched a website cataloguing their grievances with the current board.

Those grievances include the hike in membership dues approved by the board last fall, as well as compensation and travel-reimbursement arrangements for board members that they say are in sharp contrast to the practices at the overwhelming majority of nonprofit organizations -- and many for-profit companies as well.

...yes, who could have guessed a "nonprofit" COULD PAY to have "entertainment"...or is orb doing it simply out of the "goodness" of his heart?! Ha! So again, I would not be surprised if there are many more "corporate sellouts" in the upcoming month!

Tara said...

Well if he is going to act like a whore he should dress like one..
I wonder when that will happen.

God to think that just 6 years ago he had the world on a string and was poised to be more than just a country artist.

maclen said...

Well, as the orb IS going to simply lay low publically till this show is done...and where orb MAY share the stage with both the napalm and woods...I maintain it will simply be a stain for the orb. In fact orb and bestie napalm are laying SO low, not even the promo pieces that are coming out even know if orb and his bestie are going to perform together...

http://www.lvrj.com/neon/keith-urban-john-mayer-lend-support-as-tiger-woods-tiger-jam-benefit-makes-return-120947659.html

Keith Urban, John Mayer lend support as Tiger Woods' Tiger Jam benefit makes return

"Whether Keith Urban, above, and John Mayer will perform together at any point during Saturday's Tiger Jam is unclear -- although the possibility is strong since they shared the stage on a 2010 episode of "CMT Crossroads."

...well, orb's only option is standing up with those public disgraces or simply doing his gig and getting out! Either way, orb CANNOT avoid press like this...

"Woods' predicament makes the choice of Urban and Mayer seem interesting. Both headliners have occupied unwanted tabloid covers alongside Woods -- Mayer for publicly disrespecting ex-girlfriends Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson and using the N-word during a magazine interview, Urban for allegedly cheating on wife Nicole Kidman. In fact, last year, Mayer -- known then for commenting on just about everything he was asked to -- took on the Woods scandal. He jokingly told the U.K.'s The Independent newspaper that it made him feel hopeful.

...because the reality is...it does place orb in the "tabloid oddities" level once again, that napalm and woods' douche "baggery" has them in...which is NOT in a very appealing light!
Which again, is why I maintain orb has "disappeared" from the scene!

maclen said...

...post scripture...

...yeah, this is JUST what the orb needs if it turns out to be true...

http://www.lasvegasweekly.com/blogs/luxe-life/2011/apr/29/tiger-woods-injured-again-ahead-tiger-jam-john-may/

Tiger Woods injured pre-Tiger Jam with John Mayer, Keith Urban

"With the split from Elin Nordegren and the treatment in Texas sex clinics behind him, Tiger will be onstage at Mandalay Bay Events Center tomorrow to make a speech.

It’s very doubtful that there will be any mention of skipping last year’s fundraising concert. In fact, Tiger, limping from another knee and foot injury, is being well-shielded tomorrow from media and will only pose for shots with his guests Keith Urban and John Mayer, who themselves are no strangers to tabloid headlines.

...again, as I just commented, this just pulls orb down into the tabloid muck! Yes, the "sex addict" serial adulterer MAY get SHIELDED from the media...as it is apparent the orb is also being shielded...getting in a promo photo with his "guests" will SURELY be very useful for all the dopes involved! I'm HOPING it is true...I cant wait to see the sleaze just dripping off that photo! Heads up Urban Myths...it may be the perfect pic for your next blog!

maclen said...

So, as is my want...on the eve of orb once again stomping on any possibility of NOT making another PR blunder...just a few musings before he's schmoozing with the racist/sexist napalm and the serial cheater woods tommorrow night. And the location will be Las Vegas...where I'm reading is the main place woods kept his assembly line "brigade of mistress'" consisting of ....hookers...pornstars...strippers/cocktail watress' and...apparently the "college age neighor next door!" (I'm beginning to feel like a historical researcher writing about the Roman Emperor Caligula!) Of course one musing is...will kidman appear with orb on the Tiger Jam red carpet at this "meeting of glutonous minds?" At this point I would find it hard to believe she would skip the opportunity. But then recall there HASN"T been any public appearences...twitter not withstanding... by mutt and jeff going all the way back to april 6 when orb flew off to OZ...so the perception is certainly pretty high SOMEONE is hiding out for some reason! Now, as to the charity itself...considering that last year it was not held due to woods adultery and utter collapse of any and all integrity and dignity...and is returning this years Jam being headlined by the bestie's orb and napalm...HOW successful will it be compared to the previous event in 2009. Will it raise as much money? Will the amount of celebs who attended in previous years show up?
According to this article that came out today, the day before the show...

http://www.lvrj.com/neon/keith-urban-john-mayer-lend-support-as-tiger-woods-tiger-jam-benefit-makes-return-120947659.html?ref=659

Keith Urban, John Mayer lend support as Tiger Woods' Tiger Jam benefit makes return

"(According to a representative for MGM Resorts International, which owns Mandalay Bay, Tiger Jam 2011 is not yet sold out -- although the company expects it to be by show time.)"

...yeah, well I read that orb will once again be scalping tickets to this gig on Monkeyland...as will the napalm on his website...so the show was probably "sold out" immediately for the "original" ticket prices...BUT no doubt many tickets "selling" for hundreds if not thousands by the orb and other scalpers will no doubt go unsold...and seats no doubt empty!

maclen said...

So....it's about 11:30 pm, Pacific time....SNL just started and I just watched dana carvey and mike myers reprising "Wayne's World!" Hilarious! So, I assumed there would be a "plethora" of media coverage of the "Tiger Jam"... featuring those "marquee crooners" orb and napalm. Usually I can check Getty Images or WireImage and get almost up to the minute posting of all the noteworthy events in entertainment. I mean, a quick check right now over at Getty...and ironically, they've got tonights "2011 Stagecoach: California's Country Music Festival - Day 1"...508 bleeding images...featuring chesney, rucker...chris young! Yet nothing on the tiger jam? Must be just considered a "local" event. Well another google search gets me nothing on it. I mean, great, raising much needed money for great causes... but I realize how orb is SOOOO image conscious these days...and this "appearence" looks like a PR dud...if not an absolute stamp on the orb of moral less "douche baggery" by association! But...IF you want a hilarious preview...the also ironically titled, "POSITIVE" orb thread over at the the E! boards does have a blurry photo of "The Three Stooges" posing together at the Jam...posted by the "last orb fansie in the world"

http://boards.eonline.com/Insider/Boards/thread.jspa?messageID=3088823#3088823

...and here's the original link to the posted pic...

http://jmmagroup.tumblr.com/post/5090875565/keith-urban-tiger-woods-john-mayer

...Ha! The napalm and the wood look like they are "joined at the shoulders"...perhaps the napalm was just about to whisper in wood's ear if he's up for a little "trolling for chicks' later that night...maybe wood has a few hookers or strippers shacked up in a few hotels around town! Meanwhile the orb looks like he is very tenatively "inching away" from the vicinity of the nearby trainwrecks...which he IS NOW a part of! Seriously, orb looks like he just walked in off the streets and decided to check out what was going on and got into the shot! Well, maybe tommorow there will be a little more enthusiastic coverage of this MASSIVE EVENT!

maclen said...

...post "insomniacal"...

...so, I neglected to mention that ALSO already posted at Getty Images are "TN: 2011 Country Music Marathon & 1/2 Marathon Post Race Bash" and "NJ: Alan Jackson In Concert!" Seems like the mighty "trifecta" of larry, moe and curly out there in Vegas isnt much of a head turner, eh?

maclen said...

So, some pics of the "tiger jam"...over at wireimage...

http://www.wireimage.com/ItemListings.aspx?igi=495143&nbc1=1

...the same series of "PR media" photos...again, the napalm and the wood are "attached a the shoulders...no doubt stuck by the "scum and a sleaze" of their character! And notice the orb doesnt look TOO happy to be there! Yeah, notice how he's very careful NOT TO make contact with the wood...and the wood...it looks like they brought in his wax figure...as he looks "frozen" in place with that set smile on his face! So, now onto Getty Images...

http://www.gettyimages.com/Search/Search.aspx?contractUrl=2&language=en-US&family=editorial&p=tiger+jam&assetType=image

...apparently, A "tyler hilton" also performed? Who the hell is tyler hilton!?
Here is a photo of "besties" holding hands onstage...

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/113303231/Getty-Images-Entertainment

...it looks like the napalm IS ACTUALLY crooning to orb...this along with the photo on the blog photo posted by URban MYths of these two hugging...these two should really just get a room already! So, I'm wondering if kidman was a no show to this "spectacle"...for if I was her, I'd be worry if photos of those two "besties" making out in public dont get out! NOw, lest anyone gets the impression I"m jUst "gay bashing"...that's incorrect...gay and lesbians should have the full rights of heterosexuals...in life, marriage etc. In my opinion, there is NOTHING WRONG with being gay, what I am alluding to here...considering the "character" of the douche napalm...and orb's "rumored" past...what SHOULD be considered by these two...is that orb IS MARRIED! Something the other stooge, the wood...TOOK ABSOLUTELY NO consideration to...which is why in my opinion, this whole event takes the odor of a complete "sleazefest"..or in this case...a "Sleaze Jam!"

Hey laughnow2005...good to see a new voice on the thread! Yeah, I dont see this as anything but more bad news for orb. This simply gets orb attached publically to these two disgraces. And surely orb's association does NOTHING for their image... as the napalm has disappeared off the scene...and the wood hasnt won anything of note in golf and his ranking has of course fallen. This is simply a PR blunder.

http://www.lasvegasweekly.com/blogs/luxe-life/2011/may/01/photos-tiger-woods-quiet-return-tiger-jam-keith-ur/

Photos: Tiger Woods’ quiet return for Tiger Jam with Keith Urban, John Mayer

"After canceling last year’s Tiger Jam fundraiser because of scandals and tabloid trouble, golfer Tigers Woods stepped cautiously back into the Las Vegas spotlight last night. Cautiously because he had to walk onstage at his Mandalay Bay Events Center concert with Keith Urban and John Mayer with a boot on his Achilles heel injury and knee injury.

But also cautiously because of the unknown audience reaction for his Las Vegas return. There were many empty seats at Mandalay Bay Events Center. Tiger was uncomfortable being back onstage and kept his welcome speech to less than 30 seconds.

In fact, Tiger’s return here was so under the radar in terms of a fast in-and-out, he even shot a 60-second TelePrompTer video about his charity and its educational work for underserved youth that played before he hobbled onstage. That’s all fans got to see of him in his shrouded-in-secrecy return to the city where the scandalous stories of his extra-marital affairs first broke.

Yes, it's no surprise at all that the wood had to "slink" around his "sleaze jam!" And yes, I DO believe the "bestie brothers" played to a less that full audience...as it's appearing that the usual celebs STAYED away in droves from this pathetic toxic waste of a cesspool! Even the wood's foundation website only posts 4 lousy pics of this thing...and from what is initially evident at this point...the dense orb, the putrid napalm...who ever the hell tyler hilton is...and I noticed darius rucker for some reason appeared at the golf clinic...appeared for the morally bankrupt wood.
So, what other celebs WERE STUPID enough...or simply morally unaware enough to appear at this "sleaze jam?" It seems even the usual "attention monger" kidman was a no show!

Tiger Woods: Weekend's "Tiger Jam" Allows Woods to Party with John Mayer

"Woods reportedly rang in the event to a stadium full of empty seats. But as Woods returns to Sin City, should be concerned?

The former No. 1 golfer hanging out in Vegas sounds like trouble waiting to happen. He is clearly still trying to recover psychologically from the end of his marriage and physically from a set of injuries that has affected his golf game.

But Woods claims to have just spent his weekend hanging with musician John Mayer and staying out of trouble. Woods said via Twitter (@TigerWoods): "Big night at the tables with Mayer. He's cool. We both walked away winners."

Hmm, Tiger and known-womanizer Mayer hitting the tables.

That's totally suspicious."

Yes...the napalm and the wood "attached at the shoulders!" And no doubt after leaving the tables "winners...DUH!" they no doubt slunk back to the wood's hotel room and that pack of "hookers and strippers! Did orb get his fill of these douches to join in!?

...both SUSPICIOUSLY posted at the same time...and BOTH by iphone...(were they a twitter stalking team?) HA! So, basically what this proves is that the orb just spent the last 7 DAYS...SEPERATED from his MOST IMPORTANT PRIORITY that he WOULD never like to spend MORE THAN 3 DAYS away from...I mean, he SPECIFICALLY scheduled his tour so that WOULD NOT HAPPEN! But only a week after he just SPENT 12 days seperated from his most precious family... he is away for another 7 straight days...and for who? The napalm and the wood? YES...that is some..."committed and caring husband and father who can’t stand to be away from them for more than a few days."

...and orb would be a "certifiable" douche if he WAS to claim that asinine lie again in the near future. But I bet he does...the douche! HA! The "last orb fansie in the world" is really getting burned by those twit stalkers. They're helping me show that orb IS simply talking out of both sides of his mouth! For you see, the youtuber ACTUALLY had video...and one of those tweets ACTUALLY had a photo. Nice job twit stalkers!

flowersong said...

That's a no go maclen. That video was POSTED on April 24th. The video was taken ACM weekend in Vegas in early April. Keith was photographed and videotaped in that jacket and tee. The required promo artists do takes place in the large banquet rooms of the venue and its easy to run into them because as Reba's said they all stay in the same hotel unlike other award events.

flowersong said...

One more thing - the Youtube account that posted the fan video also posted many ACM red carpet arrivals. Clearly they were at ACM weekend and it's not a coincidence Keith is wearing the exact same outfit.

123xyz said...

Ummmn, no. The link from the E positive side from Vegas, was from the ACM's when Keith was there last, with Kidman. They just didn't post the video until later. It's not this recent trip for the Tiger Jam. The ACM's are held at the MGM. Tiger Jam was held at the Mandalay Bay. For someone who is so into facts you really don't do a lot of fact checking before going off, do you?

maclen said...

"For someone who is so into facts you really don't do a lot of fact checking before going off, do you?"

HA! YES...I dont do ALOT of fact checking! I just posted 12 comments on this thread...and I just got corrected on ONE ERROR...the previous thread I posted a VERY prolific 41 comments...with not ONE CORRECTION, but one of my questions being answered by a fansie on when orb returned to the US after his OZ tour ended. (And that new info DID NOT in fact negate the point I was even making!) The previous thread I posted 30 times. So...considering there was only ONE ERROR in my previous 83 FACTS FILLED comments...I'd say that is pretty damned excellent...and in FACT...I've even corrected myself on a few errors I've caught on myself. So again to summarize...I was WRONG in ONE comment on a fact...WHICH then means...I was CORRECT on facts the other 82 comments! So, go one fansies...go back and check my other previous 82 comments and see if I made...only a second error on facts? I dont mind...I'll put my "fact checking" against any fansie out there. I'm not simply... and rather lamely posting "photos and articles" like the "last orb fansie in the world"...by the way, that phrase, "last orb fansie in the world" is NOT REALLY meant to be construed as FACT...it's my little mocking of the dwindling kidman and orb fansies presence online known in the "skeptics vs bunnies" debate. So, yeah, I DONT DO alot of fact checking! HA! that's a good one!

...actually, I'd bet even that alot of fansie's who read this thread PROBABLY DIDNT EVEN realize that the orb ACTUALLY spends more than "3 days" away from his MOST beloved family...contrary to his PR BS...that they most certainly lap up as "manna" from the sky! Well, IT IS still true...or in this case... "A FACT"...that orb spends more than 3 days away from his family...despite what his lousy PR BS maintains...

maclen said...

So I occured to me that this would be a good time to review some of my past comments...and some of the "facts" Ive posted and commented on. Here's one from april 28...

"Keith Urban to Perform at SHRM Annual Conference

"Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Keith Urban will take the stage June 28 during the Society for Human Resource Management’s 2011 Annual Conference & Exposition at the Las Vegas Convention Center."

...now it seems apparent that orb will no doubt litter the month and a half between this appearence with the napalm on april 30th and the start of his US tour in june being a corporate hack...playing for any business willing to pay the price of his obviously "for hire' new status!"

...of course, my inference being that the orb will be a "corporate whore"...taking the money and running from any corporation he obviously has no attachment or even pre-knowledge of...but will appear simply because they waved that check around and he grabbed it! He was dumped by CapNash...his cd is selling terribly and he has NO SEROUS back up performers for his upcoming tour. So, I take it as no fansies contended or corrected my comment, they AGREE with my opinion...


This one I posted on april 18th..

"...so...to continue my "thesis"... my ever growing in depth and ever growing complex weaving of my "Declination Theory" tapestry...I want to take a closer look at orb's cd sales basically since his cd officially went "gold" with sales of 500k in early Jan 2011. So, beginning just a week ago on April 6 I want to list orb's cd sales week by week going back to Jan 12, 2011 IN COMPARISON to orb's OZ "opening act"...the lady ant! So here is the data...or is it "here are the data?...according to Roughstock.com..."

...now I KNOW that the fansies...NEVER... EVER...or if VERY RARELY, like to speak about orb's cd sales! I mean, it is AN ABSOLUTE FACT that the orb is very HEAVILY hemorrhaging fans...Yeah, I realize this will probably bore many reading it as Ive repeated it so many times, but....his 2004 cd sold 4 mil cds...his 2007 cd sold 2 mil cds...his 2009 cd "sold" 1 mil cds. NOw I've parenthsized "sold"...because as I commented on this LAST YEAR...when the RIAA "certified" orb's "defying sales" cd "Platinum" the last week of sept 2010...I contended IT WAS not because it actually SOLD a million...but because the cd had actually only sold about 890k...and capnash HAD JUST "shipped" 100k cd to retailers...WHICH DOESNT EVEN ADD UP to 1mil total cds...BUT the RIAA simply certified it "platinum" so orb could throw a "bitchin'" platinum party on nov 8 as PR for his new cd released about a week later!. Now this I believe I KNOW because one of orb's last appearences on roughstock's weekly cd sales report was on the aug 4, 2010 posting...

...and on this list orb's total cd sales for defying sales is 875,467 with sales of 3,497 that week. The RIAA cerified this cd "platinum"...sales of 1 mil on Sept 21 2010...about 16 weeks later. So my calculation is that orb ACTUALLY SOLD...using the roughstock weekly sales number and total to that date...56k cds between late july to sept for a total of 931,467. NOT EXACTLY 1 mil! But then, the fact that orb MAY have sold only 931k cd instead of the 1 mil is only PART of my point...orb STILL ONLY sold HALF cds as his previous cd...the platinum cert is only my personal contention...and orb ONLY SELLING 1 mil STILL makes my theory CORRECT! And IT IS bolstered by a little "fact checking" I just did, which also claims...

http://blogs.tennessean.com/tunein/2010/11/08/keith-urban-celebrates-platinum-status-of-defying-gravity/

Keith Urban celebrated platinum status of 'Defying Gravity'

"At a Hard Rock Cafe listening party on Monday, Nov. 8, Urban sang some songs and played Get Closer for industry folks, and he also received a platinum plaque, signifying sales and shipments of more than 1 million copies of Defying Gravity."

...so fansies, cool your heels over that orb "sold 1 mil cds" PR BS...for orb SURELY did not sell exactly 3,490 cd for the next 16 weeks...it was LOWER...so he is not even close to that 931k cds sold.

..ANd of course my numbers and theory has NEVER BEEN contended or faulted by orb fansies...so how are you liking my "facts checking" now, huh?!

...to be continued...

Do you really think anybody buys that? I think most readers who don't agree with the blog's premise here are simply fed up with the misinformation put out here every single day. You were wrong about Keith not being in San Francisco twice now. You were wrong in assuming PYIAS was the video nominated for CMT awards. You were wrong in saying Nicole was not at the last UNIFEM event. She was there, she was invited and attended via satellite. The video is archived on UNIFEM's site. You were wrong in wondering if Trespass will ever be released. That's just in the past week. Not to mention the last blog said Song died on the charts when it was a Number 2 hit. People are quite aware of what's going on here and know its not worth it to type up a retraction every time you post. There's no excuse for the lies, especially when you post that you read the positive thread! None of us have any illusions of why you are allowed to continue to post the way you do. You want to make Keith and Nicole look bad and that's what the blog wants. Fine, but the joke is on you because everyone knows this is not a site for facts!

maclen said...

So, just an interuption of my ongoing series of reviewed comments on all my "fact based" comments...
...there's this...

http://www.tigerwoodsfoundation.org/news/article/2011050218527916/tiger_jam/

Mayer, Urban help Woods raise $750,000 for TWF

...but just two years ago at the last "tiger Jam"


http://www.tigerwoodsfoundation.org/news/article/200912247853384/tiger_jam/

Tiger Woods, No Doubt raise more than $1 million for youth

"LAS VEGAS -- Grammy Award Winners No Doubt kicked off their first tour in five years, taking the stage at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas as part of Tiger Jam XII presented by AT&T*, a fundraising event hosted by Tiger Woods. The band joined Tiger on Saturday, May 16, 2009, helping to raise more than $1 million for programs of the Tiger Woods Foundation."

...so, tell me lurking fansies...why did this year's "Sleaze jam" ONLY raise $750k...when the last "tiger jam" raised "more than $1mil? NOw of course, $750k IS a very sizable amount...BUT it aint $1mil...as orb is very aware of! Could it have been the disgraced multi philanderer woods? Was it the revealed douchebaggery of the racist and misogynistic nalpalm? Was it the fact that this "sleaze jam" could ONLY attract the clueless orb, the douche napalm...who ever the world tyler hilton is to open for them...darius rucker and golfer john cook to appear?
Also according to the foundation...

"Near the end of Mayer's set, Urban joined him onstage for a surprise performance of "Cripple Creek." Immediately following, Urban hyped up the crowd as he performed his hit songs for more than 6,200 people."

...6,200 people??...now a quick fact check...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandalay_Bay_Events_Center

"Mandalay Bay Events Center is a 12,000 seat indoor arena, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, on the Las Vegas Strip, in Paradise, Nevada.[1] It is owned by MGM Resorts International."

...so, two-thirds of the "sleaze jam" Three stooges...the orb and napalm ONLY played to HALF of the 12,000 seat capacity? WAit...let me double fact check that!
As Ive maintained, orb performing with the napalm, for the disgraced tiger woods was, from top to bottom...a terrible PR MOVE. EVERYTHING involving the orb is DECLINING...his cd sales...hence his audience...his award wins is declining...and I STILL submit, his upcoming tour will NOT GROSS as much as his last! Those are the facts....

Oh Maclen,

We come, we read, we comprehend the data you convey. We appreciate, we contemplate, we move on to other things.

Every so often one of them trips up and actually makes the mistake of attempting to comment. Speaking for the group, (I hope) I used to find it amusing in a way, but now. . .

I usually take the opportunity to doze while I am reading "those" posts.

I just want you to know, I like to check in before I start my homework, you prime my brain.

Keep up the good work.

You go, Urban Myths.

maclen said...

Hilarious...is this ANOTHER FANSIE? Wow, 3 fansies in one day... some ONE"S keyboard sure got pretty busy...

since there are only the sockpuppets to play with now! Onward...

#1
"You were wrong about Keith not being in San Francisco twice now."

No, just once...my post last night...my ORIGINAL conjecture on this subject was "that there was as yet "ANY VERIFIABLE AND DOCUMENTED indication" of where the orb was exactly. Heres the original quote...

maclen said...
"Orb just spent the better part of an entire week in oz...his last official gig being April 15. It is now April 19...and yet NO GRAND REUNION photo ops? I mean, what about that "3 day rule" BS? Now, surely...if this were late Jan or early Feb...in the HEAT of laland awards season...YOU SURELY would have seen inept team kidman's patented "reunion at SFO" photo ops over at JJ or GG! But there is nothing...hell...orb MAY still be in OZ the past 4 days for all anyone knows!"
April 20, 2011 1:46 AM

...and when someone finally offered actual proof HE WAS in the states on the 17th...he was snapped in LAX and NOT in SF as you seem to be claiming that I was claiming orb was not. I was questioning if we was even in the US yet. So you are wrong.

#2
You were wrong in assuming PYIAS was the video nominated for CMT awards."

Well obviously, you have no conception of what "assuming" means...

as·sum·ing/əˈso͞omiNG/
Conjunction: Used for the purpose of argument to indicate a premise on which a statement can be based: "assuming that the treaty is ratified, what is its relevance?".

...heres the original quote...

"I'm assuming his "male" video nom is for "Put you in a Song"...have you seen that video? The "production values" of it consists of an intern "taping orb recording and goofing off in the recording studio.."
April 26, 2011 5:47 PM

...see, I used "assuming" because I was indicating...I was TELLING you... I DID NOT KNOW for sure. So.... he'll lose for without you and not for put you in a song! HA!

#3
"You were wrong in saying Nicole was not at the last UNIFEM event. She was there, she was invited and attended via satellite. The video is archived on UNIFEM's site."

Yes...SHE WAS THERE? HEre is my original quote...

"By the way, since kidman put up this website last sept of 2010...7 months now...there has only been 6 postings in the "Updates" section...and 5 were promo for her last film and ONLY ONE for a UN Women charity function...WHICH SHE DID NOT ATTEND! See, it was held on Feb 24 2011 in NY...AND SHE WAS too busy in awards season in LA to bother to attend..."

.. now again, there's "being there" in person...and "being there"...via sattelite! For her fansies...being far more interested in awards whoring in LA...rather than in NY for a UN banquet she claims is so important to her is quite admirable...but to me it says "lazy limo ambassador". It's like orb saying his "family" is more important to him that he WILL NOT SPEND MORE THAN 3 DAYS AWAY FROM THEM for a concert tour...then flies off and spends 12 days away...ON A CONCERT TOUR! Congrats fansies...your heroes have feet of clay...and obviously you fansies have brains of clay! There are more, but I'm sure all this will simply go right over your heads. You, "Manning16"... (let me guess, that's you age!)..obviously have a rather simplistic comprehension of my comments...who obviously cant see the forest for the trees. Happy "bopping" at orb's next concert...with who ever else bothers to attend!

123xyz said...

Right on Manning16!!!

maclen said...

"Right on Manning16!!!"

Wow!...what a response...dont you two have school work you need to get to, or something?
Hey hoosier...thanks for saving me from these fansie-droids! You think my responses WERE TOO over their heads? Is it ANY wonder I quickly lose interest in their rather simplistic comments. But the fact is, hoosier...they ARE missing the forest for the trees. They just cant see that kidman's and orb's careers are crumbling right under their delluded and blinded eyes! THe fact that both their fawnsites had to shut off their message boards because they were too embarrassed and humilated to comment on their dismal careers to public eyes...or the only two other "anti-skeptic" blogs are now done with...REALLY shows the level of their eventual disinterest in mutt and jeff! They are MORE interested that I BE WRONG on one point...in the MULTITUDES I post on these threads...than that the orb and kidman are dismally driving their careers into the ground with their asinine PR BS. I have no doubt that this "manning16" might actually believe that kidman DOES "spend time" with ex-cruise's kids...connor and bella...and it would be "peachy" keen if she in fact did simply "spend time" with them...VIA VIDEO CONFERENCE OR EMAIL! And by that, I am referring to this...

http://dalje.com/en-celebrities/nicole-kidman-sees-her-children-through-webcam/115232

Nicole Kidman Sees Her Children Through Webcam


...Ha! but then again, the fact that she hasnt been seen or photographed with ex-cruise's kids in years, certainly doesnt indicate to the fansies that she "doesnt see them at all"...she probably says so...although I dont recall personally...when! They might be simply "speculating" about that, of course!
So hoosier, hope to hear from you soon...

123xyz said...

Someone thinks way too highly of themselves and enjoys the sound of their hands typing on the keyboard. I'm sorry, was that a little too simplistic a comment for you?? Nothing you've ever posted has gone over my head. Now, do I find your posts to be monotonous and boring? Yes!!! It's the same stuff over, and over and over again. For years now. I come here to see what other people might have to say. I actually agree with some of the other posters here. Your posts, I scan through at this point. Blah, blah, blah. Until I spot a blatant lie within your repetitious monologues.

maclen said...

So, I really wanted to review the latest news on the "Sleaze jam"...didnt want it to get lost in all of today's nonsense from those self admitted 'lazy" fansies...who cant bother to reply TO ALL MY so called "factual errors"...or to comment on the embarrassing mutt and jeff on basically any other online fansie blog...since there aint any left... but the lone one over at the E! site...where ONLY the "last orb fansie in the world" is posting!

Anyway, back on point...so the clueless orb...along with the napalm douche and a dude I never heard of opening... helped the serial cheater douche raise $750k for the cheater douche's foundation. The last time the cheater douche held the "sleaze jam" it was in 2009...when No Doubt, Paramore and The Sounds performed, the Jam raised "over $1mil. Oh yes, last year the cheater douche DIDNT hold his "sleaze jam" because he had been revealed to be a...well a cheater douche...so the "sleaze jam" raised nothing. This year when clueless orb, the napalm douche and unknown dude performed, according to the tiger jam foundation, they played to a crowd of "more than 6,200"... in a venue that held 12,000 seats! You know, ONLY HALF! Back in 2009, with No doubt, paramore and the sounds performing...their jam venue was...


http://www.houseofblues.com/tickets/eventdetail.asp?eventid=57591

No Doubt "Tiger Jam XII" at Mandalay Bay Events Center - SOLD OUT!

...yep...SOLD OUT! This year, clueless orb, napalm douche, unknown guy performed...and darius rucker and golfer John cook were guests...with mc hammer hosting some afterparty. In 2009, the aforementioned No Doubt, Paramore and The Sounds performed...AND P. diddy, dwayne wade, alonzo mourning, cricket player steve waugh, jimmy jam harris, gabrielle union, ben roethlisberger were guests and mc hammer hosted the after party...(clearly the hammer will work regardless of anything!) And also clearly the "guests" were VERY scarce for this year's "sleaze jam." Orb did NOT "elevate" this event with his presumed "superstardom" AT ALL...he just got pulled down into the sleaze vat with a couple of douches...where hilariously, clueless orb was in competition for top "douche" of the event...

maclen said...

...ps...

...so, just wanted to add another clueless orb endeavor that instantly went south! Recall the "BENEFIT FOR ORB?"... the All for the Hall charity concert that orb co-opted from vince gil and HIS YEARS of work for the Hall of Fame...in 2009 as orb was smack dab in the tail end of his tour...he announced ON STAGE how HE would be organizing...with gil...a benfit concert "All for the Hall" set for Oct 13...just after his tour ended and it was smack dab during the voting for the CMA's...orb has very PR opportunistic tendencies by this point! So, the benefit was held...clueless orb AND HIS BAND play the first HOUR of the benefit...and these "elite" artists also appeared... Brad Paisley, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town and Taylor Swift. Orb pulled off the TIcketMaster scalping scheme on his monkeysite...tickets allocated to his site were later to be found to have been scalped for hundreds of dollars...AND orb no doubt had MANY NEW paid fansie memberships JUST TO GET TICKETS...to scalp! Many monkeys at monkeyville LOUDLY COMPLAINED...yeah the message boards over at monekyland were still open...that they COULDNT GET tickets...even with their paid membership! Orb was able to provide a "video feed" of the concert on his fawnsite...where RIGHT below the video screen, he was hawking his fawnsite crap...t-shirts, mugs his latest cd...the concert lasted about 4 hours...the concert was an instant "sellout"...and it raised $500k. And oh yeah, orb LOST "Entertainer" at the CMAs! Well a year later...on oct 6, orb held the "Benefit for orb" but with announced performers... Dolly Parton, Charley Pride and Vince Gill will take the stage alongside Billy Currington, Alan Jackson, Alison Krauss, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride and the napalm. And NONE of the "elite" performers from the year before, besides gil, would appear again...and he covered that by calling this benefit a "Heroes" benefit...you know, older, less relevent performers! BUT unlike the previous year...orb AND HIS BAND DID NOT play the first hour...he DID NOT get to "live stream" the concert on his fawnsite...he once again ripped off his monkeymembers with "unavailable' tickets for paid members...they complained again last year on the open message board...because the scalpers got MOST of the tickets. But a BIG difference from the previous contraversy of orb "getting more paid members to his fawnsite' off of those scalpers paying memberships and getting all the tickets...the monkeysite "announced" that ALL NEW MONEY made from NEW MEMBERSHIPS to the monkeysite "would be donated to the hall of fame!" Well, the 2010 benefit only raised "nearly" $450k..and I recall, the benefit was NOT instant sell out! So as I mentioned previously, orb is in the habit of "underperforming"...whether they are sales is cds OR appearences at benefit functions that also dont raise as much money as the previous event!

Tara said...

I think Keith played this event pretty well. He performed, he did a small photo op he kicked ass in the
concert but he didn't really hang with Tiger or Mayer- there was no going to the tables with them no after show dinners.

As for the Frisco sightings with the exception of one on set photo before the trip to Oz there have been no pictures thus no trustworthy sightings and next week he is in the studio with his ego label artist in Nashville.

"Your posts, I scan through at this point. Blah, blah, blah. Until I spot a blatant lie within your repetitious monologues."

Tara said...
"I think Keith played this event pretty well. He performed, he did a small photo op he kicked ass in the

Yeah, I can certainly see where your coming from Tara, but I really think orb made a huge mistake simply agreeing to appear at all. Surely orb's status right now especially, it does NOTHING for him to continue to associate with napalm...let alone woods. All the "gossip" regarding napalm and woods and their douchey reps will simply overshadow whatever good orb may have gotten from this event. As for the SF issue...the fact that I was mistaken about the orb being in Vegas the week prior to the "sleaze jam' DOES not negate my contention that orb is full of it in regard to his "3 day" rule, which is obviously been shown to be BS by the fact orb was away from his family 12 days on tour. End of argument. And your right Tara, there has scant and little "VERIFIABLE AND DOCUMENTED indication" of where orb was for most of last month when he WAS NOT on tour in oz. But we DO KNOW he was away 12 days...and all the fansie's claims he WAS WITH HIS FAMILY all the rest of the time in SF...again, is all simply SPECULATION on their parts.

Tara said...

Oh that togetherness vibe is huge really huge.
Keith played a private show in Nashville for yet another corporate bunch and Kidman went out in SF

seen in public not together not even in the same time zone

hoosierlady said...

My goodness, they must be racking up those frequent flyer miles.

Ha! yes, when I heard that the orb would be playing the SHRM on june 28th...I did figure he would be "littering" the "open" month and May with his "corporate whoring!" It does make perfect sense...because A) he's no longer with a record label...B) orb himself PAID for the recording of his latest cd, thats part of why he only took 11 months to write, record and release it...C) that cd is selling LOUSY...D) I figure...as perhaps orb himself figures...without any 'elite" artist's supporting his upcoming tour...there will be many empty seats. So again, for the next month and a half...he's apparently an "act for hire." So tell me tara, who were the corporate entities...BP?

Tara said...

OSI Partners- they own Outback Steakhouse and a couple of other chains- do I smell tour sponsorship?

maclen said...

So, while the orb "fiddles" for the corporate suits who are willing to give him a paycheck...his cd CONTINUES to take a nosedive...

http://www.roughstock.com/blog/chart-news-jason-aldean-back-to-1-again

...so, as most of last weeks acts who posted big sales bumps drop in sales this week, it's again NOT TOO SURPRISING the orb is missing from the list. Being as the last act, underwood, on this list is at sales of 2,754 orb MUST certainly be at the mid 2000 sales mark. So it's not very surprising, as I hypothesized, that orb's cd sales could be at the 1000 sales level by the time his tour begins in late June...UNLESS the RIAA happens to certify his cd "Platinum"...sales of 1 mil...by then! HA!

maclen said...

Tara said...
"OSI Partners- they own Outback Steakhouse and a couple of other chains- do I smell tour sponsorship?"

As I recall, KC Masterpiece and Kingsford were a tour sponsor in his 2009 and 2010 tour. Havent been able to find any info if they are back as sponsors. This could be a promo appearence for sponsorship. But more interesting is whether KC and Kingsford actually did dump the orb!
So here is something very interesting...

http://www.billboard.com/events/hot-tours-justin-bieber-keith-urban-rod-1005170692.story#/events/hot-tours-justin-bieber-keith-urban-rod-1005170692.story

...so, it seems Oz DOES have a "favorite son"...and it sure AINT clueless orb! It's the bieb...the Canadianbieb...hilariously ironic...seeing as orb's "WORLD" tour only consists of OZ and Canada!
So the bieb played three gigs in OZ at the Brisbane Centre...and 2 at the Acer Arena..grossed $4mil...all 3 shows sold out to a total audience of 40,000 people, (11,000 people at brisbane and about 15k per Acer gig.
Now, onto the orb...he played two gigs at the Brisbane centre...grossed $1.8mil...both shows NOT SOLD OUT to a total audience of 14,334 people...with a total capacity of 15,099 people!, (7,000 people per show) Well, that certainly answers my question of whether...as some of the "press release" articles on orb's Oz tour claimed...his shows were ALL SOLD OUT. THEY WERE NOT SOLD OUT! So...IN OZ "Favorite son" orb couldnt even sell out puny 7,500 people capacity venues...IN OZ! Even with Lady ant...definately more popular in the US than orb...couldnt help orb sell out his tour...IN OZ! And it still turns out, Lady ant IS more popular in OZ than orb...

http://www.ariacharts.com.au/pages/charts_display_country.asp?chart=1F20

...seems lady ant's album in oz IS STILL #1...and even a slightly surging orb COULDNT knock them out of #1.

Sorry for your loss fading fan. If you look at this picture, it is her engagement ring she is wearing. She hasn't worn her wedding band in quite a long time - maybe as long as rehab. The two rings together were quite thick on the finger.

Thanks for the link Fading Fan. Well, according to this article from 2007, this is kidman engagement ring...

http://www.miadonnadiamondblog.com/cat/celebrity-engagement-rings-diamond-jewelry/page/4/


...a "3 stone" ring...which she is wearing here with another band in 2006...

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/72677640/AFP


and here in 2007...

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/77977364/WireImage


...and here again in 2008...

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/80825073/AFP


...and then here in 2009, wearing only the 3 band ring...

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/92160916/Getty-Images-Entertainment


...I agree with Fading Fan...the ring kidman wore at the ACMs last month appears different than certainly the 3 stone ring..or that other wider band which she wore with the 3 stone ring. Now why kidman seems to have worn the 3 stone ring...whether it is in fact the engagment ring or not...sometimes along with that other band from at least 2006 thru 2009...and appears to now be wearing a smaller ring is unclear. As of now I am not aware that this ring she wore last month is simply her wedding band or not. Perhaps someone else has an idea? And if so, why has she apparently NOT been wearing it the past 5 years.

maclen said...

So, as this weeks Roughstock cd sales report shows...orb's cds sales continue to fall. As orb is not even mentioned in this week's or last week's report, his sales are not known. But one thing is sure, it's in the mid 2k level. Seeing as orb's cd has fallen from last week's #25 down to #29 this week on Billboards Country Album Chart would indicate a decline in sales. BUT a far more revealing indication of how bad orb is doing is in the fact that orb has now FALLEN OFF THE TOP 200 album chart at Billboard! Meanwhile, of the "elite" country acts...aldrean is at #11...swifty is at #29...flatts at #35...lady ant at #42...lambert at #53...sugarland at #60...and chesney at #69. Last week orb was at #171...this week orb is SOMEWHERE at ...200 something!
Now, as to the info of orb's two gigs in Oz...the Billboard article that shows that his two shows in Brisbane WERE NOT SELLOUTS...despite what "reports" like this claimed...

http://www.theboot.com/2011/04/22/keith-urban-australia-concert-videos/

Keith Urban Duets With Lady A and Pint-Sized Fan -- Exclusive Australian Video Tour Diary

"He hasn't lived there in almost two decades, but Keith Urban is still Australia's golden boy. Proof: there wasn't a single empty seat on the Aussie leg of the country superstar's Get Closer World tour, as shows in Adelaide, Melbourne, Tamworth, Sydney and Brisbane all sold out."

...so...who are YOU gonna believe?... data from the preemiment music charting organization...or a "boot licking" celeb groveling country industry website like "The Boot?"
So, I truly believe the fact that orb apparently COULD NOT sellout 2 venues of 7,500 seats in OZ, IS a preshadowing of how orb is going to perform here in the states once the US leg of his tour begins in late june. So keep an eye out on those "corporate gigs" orb will apparently whore himself out to this upcoming month...because as I surely believe, his tour is going to be a real dud.

Tara said...

She probably likes the engagement ring more since if rumors are true she bought it for herself.

Tara said...

I think the picture from last night with Keith yawning at the Hockey game with his arm around Vampira says it all.
They haven't been together and now its time to at least look like you like one another- But Keith just can't do it.

Ha! Yes, orb apparently is about as "excited" to be at a hockey game as kidman is to be at an orb concert! Yes, but orb IS WELL aware when the "green men' come over to yuck it up, the photogs will surely be snapping away...SO he puts his arm around kidman to get in a few of those shots in! And...of course there's the typical shot of kidman STARING directly into the camera!

A two-part post:

Forget the yawning photo. If you want to see a true picture of Team Urban in action, check out this baby from the same page. She's futzing with her hair. He's glowering at someone beyond her. Between the yawning and the company, it was some night for Keith:

(Date night with the wife? That'll teach you...)

And about the ring: I keyed in a post, but I believe it got lost in the ether. In any event, I think the ACM ring is the three-stone one, but turned around into her palm. All the better to show off that ugly, huge monster on her right hand, which, theatrically, she cradled like a wounded wing. ("Look at me! Look at me! I'm NOT showing off this piece of ice!")

I heard she got a push present for Faith. Obviously to celebrate all the pushing the surrogate did.

Yeah, A440, as they say... a "picture is worth a thousand words." My interpretation of that photo... it probably was AFTER the "green men" came over and they had their little "photo op" moment...and kidman looks to be whining or complaining about something...and orb certainly gives the impression from his face as he listens, "not that again you whiney diva." Clearly that photo gives off the vibe that NEITHER is very amused about something!

maclen said...

So, in the return of "Late Night Musings"...

...so it seems with the return of mutt and jeff's lame ass pre arranged photo ops... they took a little break...orb certainly right after his oz tour and up until his nitwitted appearence at the cheating douche's "slease jam"...where he and the napalm douche RAISED LESS MONEY...certainly out of shame and embarrassement for agreeing to be there! So certainly, the completely "in shambles" career of kidman came to mind. And apparently, her next film...SEEMINGLY anyway...should be her film with Nic "show me the money before I film a remake of Ishtar" cage...called Trespass. Now recall a few comments ago, a very vapid and the obviously 16 yr old "Manning16'... who clearly READS EVERY comment I ever post, seeing as he/she had a rather long list of subjects I was "wrong" about. (hey "Manning16", it's getting late...isnt it past your bedtime?)
Well, apparently I was WRONG in that Trespass, according to Manning16 anyway, WOULD be released. Well, tonight when I just checked over at IMDB, they simply have a release at for sept in the Netherlands...nothing about the US. Well, if the Netherlands get to see this "gem" of a film...more power to them, but nothing on the innertubes yet...confirming that it will be released in the US. That is just fact. But, let me just point out that I never claimed, or gave the indication that the film WOULD NOT in fact be released...I only commented that I felt it was iffy. My exact words were, "when, OR IF" this film gets released. That is fact. I made those comments just after cage got busted for "spousal abuse...and I was commenting on how kidman would handle having to promo this film with cage...you know, seeing how kidman is a so called "defender of woman's rights and dignity across the globe. In fact...I CANT WAIT FOR THIS FILM TO BE RELEASED...I cant wait to see kidman gushing over nic "spousal abuser" cage on letterman or conan...what a fabulous guy he is! OR...she may not! She may simply skip promo for this film...WHEN OR IF it gets released in the US...just as she did with her dismal film, "Stepford wives" in 2004, when she SKIPPED the world premiere in LA to present at the Tony Award instead. Or they may simply NOT HAVE A PREMIERE...as they DID NOT even have a premiere of her dismal film "The Invasion" because that was such a mess of a film! Either way, I'll have a field day. They'll either throw this mess to the dogs...as scraps...and it dies in theaters it's first weekend...see cage's and kidman's recent film performances...or they sit on it a while...or they simply toss it out to "direct to video" Either way, I have the fun of mocking it...and her...and her just as vapid fansies...

A440 said...

The bit with the Green Men probably irritated her no end. Will these peons never learn not to approach her? And they probably "scared" her. Just like those other fans the other day.

Those bastards.

A440 said...

maclen, your mention of whining got me thinking: Can you imagine the level of the belly-aching that went on in Casa Urban at the end of the awards season with Keith having won his Grammy and Nicole having won ... zip?

All those nights she got herself all wound up in anticipation of a possible win: there were four major nominations, if I recall correctly. And she came home empty handed each time. Can you imagine the screaming that went on? Especially when it became clear that RH was tanking, in terms of both box office receipts and awards.

I suspect Keith didn't get any nookie for a l-o-n-g time.

Lucky Keith.

Surely enough is known publically about how this "union" works, to definately get an impression on how it may work privately. Anyone who TRIES as hard as these two flakes to diseminate a completely disengenuous and laughably over the top...comically cliched and unconvincingly "presented" syrupy "fairy tale" life...MUST surely bang their heads against the wall when all that dished out pablum DOESNT get them what they truly cherish. Sure, divas CRAVE attention...but they CRAVE ALL the attention...and when the OTHER divas recieve more of it...they no doubt go ballistic. Orb no doubt has either adopted that tendency...or as the photo surely suggested...gets occasionally annoyed by kidman unhinged need for ALL the attention...or he simply is SO into his co-dependence...he just goes along with whatever he needs to exist in that "union!"

I suspect nookie isn't a factor at Casa Kurban either.

"Country singer Keith Urban has a men's fragrance in the works, set to debut this June to coincide with his summer tour. [WWD]"

So is orb so hard up for income "supplements"... what with his cd selling so lousy...that he's gonna put out a fragrance?! Yes, I bet dudes are REALLY clamoring to smell just like the orb...what with his recent stench of of the napalm douche...the "tiger" blood in his system (winning duh!)...and the mixture of Ben Gay and sunscreen no doubt placed on the pale and pasty wifey!
And now, this next piece...do I sense the "declination theory" being reveiled in orb's live touring?

http://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/article/20110509/NEWS02/110508020/Champlain-Valley-Expo-finances-falter-2010-?odyssey=tab%7Ctopnews%7Ctext%7CFRONTPAGE

Champlain Valley Expo finances falter in 2010

Grimm said the fair brought back country music star Keith Urban, who opened the 2006 fair with a soldout concert.

“After our analysis, after he went on sale, we probably wished we would have moved in a different direction, Grimm said. Urban brought in 3,000 fewer people last year.

“His fees went up. The fees never go down,” Grimm said. Tickets with service charges were in the area of $70 to $85 compared to about $55 in 2006, Grimm said."


So, in 2006 orb sold out this venue...but last year he ATTRACTED 3000 LESS PEOPLE? In 2006 his ticket prices were $55 and sold out.....in 2010 ticket prices were $70 to $85...so he attracted 3000 less people...makes sense. As I recall, in orb's full tour in 2009, the average ticket price for his tour was $63 and last year his ticket prices were between $70 to $85 at the champlain valley expo...where it is revealed he ATTRACTED LESS PEOPLE! So, IF his prices are always rising...what does orb think HIS live show is worth this upcoming summer? Well, based on this data...orb would be wise to charge less for his tickets...taking into account the less than true "elite" added attractions for opening acts...his severe cd sales decline...OR he can attempt to jack up ticket prices to maximize the grosses...to which I would say that he WILL ATTRACT LESS people...thus gross less. I can't wait to see what happens.

Oh...it makes MORE sense now...

http://www.bellasugar.com.au/Keith-Urban-Set-Release-His-First-Fragrance-June-16416061

Keith Urbn Joins the Country Club Celebrity Fragrance Gang!

"Taylor Swift isn't the only country crooner getting her own scent. No siree. Keith Urban is getting in on the whole game with WWD reporting that he'll team up with International Flavors and Fragrances to develop his first fragrance, which looks set to be released in mid-June in line with his Get Closer world tour."

Well, orb COULD NOT follow swifty into cross over "pop" appeal with a couple of juvenile sounding cds...so I guess he can follow swifty with a "scent"..."Ode to a true teen sweetheart!"...for another go at popular appeal!
So, I saw this PR BS story earlier this morning with a less and less routine google search of inept kidman, but skimmed past it. Another "possible"...yet not yet confirmed..."possible" lame "project" for kidman's pathetic prospects...but just now saw it as I hilariously tuned into the E! positive orb thread...which more and more seems to be slowly being taken over by "twitter stalker" postings...

http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/archives/2011/05/09/nicole_kidman_circles_james_wans_low_budget_horror_pic_spectre/

Nicole Kidman Circles James Wan’s Low Budget Horror Pic ‘Spectre’

"There’s the long-gestating “The Danish Girl” with Rachel Weisz that was going to shoot this summer but we presume is now delayed again as that actress recently boarded “Oz The Great And Powerful” set to lens in July. Kidman also has Park Chan-Wook‘s “Stoker” and “Our Wild Life” as other possibilities on the horizon. So producers will probably wait to see how it plays out in the market before anything is set. But with a budget of under $10 million, covering the costs of “Spectre” shouldn’t be too difficult."

...yes... those phrases DO go together rather predictably..."kidman"
AND "low budget! Seems like there is ANOTHER LONG LIST of "possible" new projects for kidman! Only last week there was the "posible" yet ONLY read script by kidman...but not yet confirmed, "Our wild life." Of course NOT surprised AT ALL over the possible DELAY once again for the Danish Girl...lets see...2 directors dump the flick...now on it's third...two co-actors..(or was it three, cant keep up)... dump the flick, now on it's third...or fourth! Now another possible delay in filming...would this be possibly the second or third delay? So...will it take the inevitable flop of "Monte Carlo"...the "kidman failed starrer" before this so called "production company" of kidman's finally goes belly up? So what's happended to... "Eighth Wonder" the springfield bio pic...'Little Bee"... "HOw to marry a millionaire" remake...and many more I'm sure I cant recall...seem to have disappeared off the face of the planet! So add this new "plethera" of "possible" and "low budget" flicks to that long list of cinematic corpses on the kidman horizon! My niece just finished a high school film project...and I'm PRETTY sure for a modest amount...KIDMAN WOULD HAVE CONSIDERED STARRING IN IT! HA!

phoe·nix/ˈfēniks/
Noun: (in classical mythology) A unique bird that lived for five or six centuries in the Arabian desert, after this time burning itself on a funeral pyre and rising from the ashes with renewed youth to live through another cycle.

Orb no doubt HOPES his career...already flamed out...can ALSO RISE FROM THE ASHES! I doubt if being an "ashtray" for mutt will actually translate into renewed success...

maclen said...

So, in this edition of "Late Night Musings"...

...it just occured to me...that mutt and jeff are now entering a "golden" period. A new era of noticable decline...of pathetic and desperate... and very embarrassing thrashings of "attempting" to stay relevent! Clearly their "fandom" is in SUCH sorry shape...the only remaining supporting voice is the E! Positive thread...which I just previously mentioned is reduced to "twitter stalker" listings...and blandly re-posting articles, pics and ANY obscure reference...no matter how insignificant or mundane. And the fact that it is ALL being done by the seemingly "LAST ORB FANSIE IN THE WORLD"...without any "commentary"...no "independent" thought or reason. Surely the reason the mutt and jeff fawnsites locked up their message boards is the embarrassment of their failed careers. So, now you can plainly see the frantic thrashing of kidman "circling"...like a starving vulture...every "low budget"...low concept indie "starter script" out in the lalaland fringe. A just in the can film, "Trespass" for "Millennium Films and Nu Image Films"...MAYBE...someday "The Danish Girl" from "Blossom Films, ELBE, Harrison Productions"... possibly "Our Wild Life" for "Mandalay Pictures" or maybe Stoker...from "Fox Searchlight Pictures"...the indie 'pinkie" on the long arm of larger "20th Century Fox!" Kidman is NO LONGER in the running for the big budget, high concept...or HIGH EXPECTATIONS films of the rest of the 6 major studios...which are according to wikipedia, Warner Bros., Paramount, Columbia, Universal and Walt Disney Studios. Clearly, kidman's LAST hope for work is indie studios, cable tv and of course her OWN vanity shingle. Orb apparently is reduced to rush releasing his cd for the xmas holiday season, only to now see it's sales fall to about 2k a week, ONLY 6 months after release...and obviously ineffectually scheduling his "world" tour 7 months after the cd's release...so he can promote his concert tour instead...with his summer single...and apparently a "summer fragrance! I guess his and kidman's "clothing line"..."hank and evie" was NOT exactly a smashing success...but I suppose orb t-shirts are NOT A HUGE SELLER...even on his concert tour! So what's next...a line of hair products..."keep those highlights bright and vibrant with "Urban Renewal"...aka the "Phoenix Phoeney"...you'll only delusionally believe your rising from the ashes!

Tara said...

Seriously most men don't like Keith Urban as a guy. Yeah they like the guitar player but the spray tan ironed haired short pussy whipped man
not so much. So who will buy it? Tim McGraw I understand that even actresses but Keith Urban??
He isn't known for his fashion sense. Does that also mean he is going to wear this crap? And he will do adds and commercials. My god he has a whole new career to replace the one he screwed up.

maclen said...

So, with about another month and a half til orb begins his US tour... in this weeks sales report over at Hits Daily double...seems the remaining elites on the chart can pull off occasional sales bumps that get impressive sales numbers...

http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/sales/salescht.cgi


10- aldrean TW-28,995 LW-23,128 +25%

23-lady ant 20,041 8,974 +123%

27- swift 17,505 10,853 +61%

29- flatts 14,733 11,660 +26%

-- orb ????? ????? ??


...and the rest just out of this list NO DOUBT still selling higher than orb. Wow, look at lady ant...you know...orb's Oz opening act! 123% rise in sales. And no doubt orb will once again be OUT of the Roughstock.com sales report tommorrow...or with just a few hundred more cds sold! BUT...I'm sure the fragrance will revive his career...JUST like a phoenix from the ashes! Ha! Ha!

maclen said...

...ps...

...just wanted to throw in this currently relevent FYI... on the aforementioned Rachel Weisz from Nikki Finke's Deadline/Hollywood...

http://www.deadline.com/2011/05/rachel-weisz-in-deep-talks-for-bourne-gal/

Rachel Weisz In Deep Talks For Bourne Gal
By NIKKI FINKE | Tuesday May 10, 2011 @ 4:27pm PDT

"EXCLUSIVE: What a nice dilemma to have. Just last week, Deadline reported that Rachel Weisz was in talks with Walt Disney Studios for Oz: The Great And Powerful, to be directed by Sam Raimi. But now I've learned that Rachel is in even deeper talks to star opposite Jeremy Renner in Universal Pictures' latest in the Bourne franchise. I hope she can do both pics, but she may not be able to: the Tony Gilroy-directed The Bourne Legacy starts shooting in September, and Oz is planned to go into production this summer."

Interestingly, NO MENTION whatsoever about Danish Girl "SUPPOSEDLY" starting principle photography also this summer...or even a mention that weisz was even set to do Danish Girl. CLEARLY, this just tells you just HOW READY this "2 years in gestation" film is to getting made. It surely does reveal what a penny ante work this whole "kidman subsidy" little joke is! A fringe project, simply getting batted around the "trades"...SET to star...set to start...and then...nothing! To get a good idea of just WHAT is going on here with kidman's "vanity production company"...try checking out the Tim Burton film, "Ed Wood" with johnny depp....Edward D Wood Jr., argueably the worst producer/director/playwrite ever...just trying to scrape together a few thousand bucks for a film budget...shooting off the cuff on the side of the road...and yoou'll get a good idea of what is going on with kidman's danish girl!

maclen said...

...pps...

...ANOTHER little FYI...in regard to my recent comment on mutt and jeff's seemingly lackluster "clothes line"..."hank and evie... that made innertubes headlines a few years ago...there's this from kidman's reqular source for her "Press Releases"...

http://stylenews.peoplestylewatch.com/2011/05/10/katie-holmes-enlists-a-new-apprentice-stepdaughter-bella-cruise/?xid=rss-topheadlines

"Katie Holmes Enlists a New Apprentice: Stepdaughter Bella Cruise

Tom Cruise‘s oldest daughter is joining the family business. While Isabella “Bella” Cruise won’t be lighting up the silver screen anytime soon, she’s recently taken on the role of apprentice at stepmom Katie Holmes‘s fashion label Holmes & Yang. “Kate’s designing and [Bella] is just working her way up,” a beaming Tom Cruise told PEOPLE at the Simon Wiesenthal Center and Museum of Tolerance National Tribute Dinner in Beverly Hills Thursday, where he was joined by Holmes and son Connor. “She’s an artist, Bella, so it’s really great that she gets to work with it,” he added. “She’s loving it.”

...seems holmes' clothing line is pretty legit. Bella now working for "mom"...connor recently attending some honor with "dad"...seems to clear up a few recent rumors.

Jake said...

Hey maclen, what happened to Bella moving in with Porky? I guess thats over now Bella has a more creative place to be. Poor Porky TC manages to keep those kids totally secluded from her nemesis! LOL

Good for you TC whatever it costs its worth it.

Jake said...

Well again maclen what is..... real..... people can relate to. Pork Chops fantasy is too much even for the most loyal fansie. Just take a look at the PT board you will see its dropped off pretty much after the gestational carrier facade.

HA! Yes Jake...that's a very interesting hypothesis. One I HADN'T even considered! Looking back on backlog of their E! Positive thread...at about the time the news of the gestational PR Baby came out on the thread on Jan 17...there was a group of 5 commenters. It was "neimanmarcus", "paragoric annie", "TimeSpentWell","Crazyfan101" and "Verity". By the end of the month, it was down to mainly 3...with sporatic posting from the other 2. But actually, if you look at this page in the thread...

http://boards.eonline.com/Insider/Boards/thread.jspa?threadID=72060&start=3015&tstart=0


...it was NOT UNTIL AFTER March 15th that the tread was pretty much abandoned by all but the "last orb fansie in the world!" After March 15th, of the next 50 comments from march 15th to april 11th...47 were from "Verity" and only 3 were by OTHER commentors! And what exactly was posted on the POSTITIVE THREAD on March 15th? Orb's video for Without You! You know, the video with "personal" film images playing on the wall of kidman and pr baby #1! Seems the other 4 remaining fansies left... WERE NOT very impressed by orb's personal films of his family in his video! So clearly, after the whole "album cover" poll charade...the endless "dedicating of EVERY SONG on the cd to kidman, orb is hemmoraging fansies! And your right Jake, the fansie's clearly see that...AND DONT LIKE IT! And their adandoning the E! Positive thread after that video came out clearly adds to that indication!

maclen said...

Jake said...
"Hey maclen, what happened to Bella moving in with Porky? I guess thats over now Bella has a more creative place to be."

Yeah, I never bought that rumor of bella moving back with kidman. The fact that Sci-tol MAY be the reason for their estrangement...the fact that kidman is NOT very enthusiastically "fighting" to get to see them...outside of a few public comments on how it "pains her"...I doubt if they have any desire to be a part of her life...public or otherwise.

HA! Roughstock has it's weekly sales report...

http://www.roughstock.com/blog/colt-ford-debuts-at-3-on-album-chart-this-week

"The interesting section of the SoundScan Hot 200 Current Albums chart starts off with Keith Urban at 116 with Get Closer. Moms everywhere love them some KU as he jumped 54 slots on the chart this week."

HA! HA! Yes, Orb got a such an IMPRESSIVE Mother's Day bump!
"Moms EVERYWHERE love them some KU?"

170 116 Keith Urban Get Closer 4,403 583,646

...so, lets see...orb got a MASSIVE mom's day bump of what....2000 more cds sold! The "PHEONIX" is rising!
NOW, clearly orb's TOTAL amount sold is ANOTHER MISTAKE by roughstock. Orb HAS NOT SOLD 580k cds. Only 3 weeks ago, the last time orb was on this list...he was at 527k cds sold and that week he sold 3,857...the next 2 weeks orb DIDNT EVEN sell enough cds a week to make the lists...now today, 3 weeks later, orb is back on the list with sales of only 4,403, BUT HIS TOTAL is now 580K? That would mean that orb sold from april 20 to may 11th...that's 3 weeks time... orb sold 56,345 cds? That's 18,781 cds sold each week for the 3 last weeks...which DID NOT HAPPEN!! HA! It's more like orb only sold about... at MOST...only about 12 to 13k cds, for a total more like 540k! Believe me...Ive got my eyes on orb's sales! HA! Orb just got a moms day bump of only about 2k cd sales bump....he got a Grammy's bump of only about 3 or 4k more cds. The PHEONIX....has landed...with a thud!

maclen said...

..post scripturally...

Well... so here is my pre referred self "error correction"...

Ha! IGNORE my last comment regarding orb's cd sales! Seems the past mistake Roughstock made on orbs cd sales I was referring to... WAS the one I was USING, in ERROR. ROUghstock's number of 527k on april 20 is a mistake...but I forgot! And I made my calculations based on that WRONG NUMBER! So, how is that for LiGHTNING FAST Re-fact checking! So, carry on ...

Kidman cares...
apparently she has taped a message for tomorrows Tornado relief concert that Keith will be performing at. While the concert is needed we know Kidman could care less- they probably had to point out where these places are since to her they are just fly over and not at all special.

"Hoosierlady and Maclen - I have IE8 on my computer. I have certain programs that I use for work that won't run properly on IE9, so I have to keep using windows XP and can't use windows 7 or vista, which you have to have in order to have IE9, or so I'm told."

As a apple mac user, Fading Fan, I've been able to simply try OTHER browsers that were far more compatable with varying websites over the innertubes. Now I realize the "complexities' of Windows operating systems that may be, well, complicated. From what experiences I HAVE had with Windows PCs...there is always a chance of added software "taking over" your system...therefore changing it needlessly. Other than that I am stumped as to what you can try.

Now, with my "corrected error" taken care of...I just wanted to reiterate the main point of my last post on last week's cd sales. Orb "apparently" (snicker snicker)...had a Mother's day sales bump to about 4k cds sold. Now taking into account his previous sales weren't posted...the "bump" could have been 1k or 2k or even 3k more cds sold...still the puny amounts are pretty pathetic! Now, the orb MAY have, according to the Roughstock "staff"...VERY impressively 'moved up 54 spots...from #170 up to #116...on the "SoundScan Hot 200 Current Albums chart"...BUT, the orb WAS VERY UNIMPRESSIVELY OFF the Billboard top 200 chart last week. Again, the opinion of orb's "success"..or his utter "patheticness"... is simply based on your opininated perspective! And the orb's album BEING OFF the top 200 album chart in the country IS NOT IMPRESSIVE AT ALL!

maclen said...

Huzzah! Hey monkeys...orb has re-entered the Billboard Top 200 chart!

http://www.billboard.com/charts/billboard-200?begin=121&order=position

...orb is back to #136! After having been at 200 something.... The "Phoenix" has re-landed!

Boy....the orb is SOOOO low on the chart...apparently you can move up about 70 spots with the sale of a measly 2 or 3000 cds!

So it seems blogger had a little malfunction eh? But the true horror...my comments...MY precious and magnificent comments lost? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

Ha! Well, orb just played the CMT organized disaster relief gig...cool...great SOMEONE organized one. Orb DOESNT organized one unless it's a couple of weeks BEFORE a major country awards show...or DOESNT donate much needed funds for 2 or 3 months after the fact...so he can ANOUNCE the donation ON STAGE at one of his oz gigs! It gives it that much needed more wider reaching PR for HIMSELF! And "non" performing country associated appendage COULDNT bother to attend, so kidman sent in a prepackaged video. Oh, wait, SHE DID SEND IN A VIDEO...so does that mean SHE DID ATTEND THE FUNDRAISER? HA! Once again, THEY'll be no phone
answering and associating with the public for kidman!

Did you see that CMT performance?! WTF? It's like he went off the deep end.

Oh, and BTW, here is a repeat of a lost msg for Fading and her browser problem:

I'm on Mac also, and am happy with Firefox version 3.6.15. I Googled around, and it looks like FF is available for Windows XP, so you may want to consider it. FF on my Macs are stable and user-friendly.

Also options are the Windows XP versions of Opera and Google Chrome. I can't attest to how well they work -- I've never worked with them -- so some research is in order.

HTH.

Tara said...

you have to remember there is a learning curve for Kidman in relation to the general public

I thought Keith did a fine job last night- especially the passionate end of the song..

maclen said...

...oh...so was part of the reason kidman was a NO SHOW at the fundraiser because orb ex niki taylor WAS AT the funraiser...answering phones and associating with the public?

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/114133557/Getty-Images-Entertainment

...nothing like severe insecurity and low tolerance to uncomfortable situations on kidman's part to keep her away from the worthy cause.

maclen said...

...post succintly...

...well, so here is a little more info on kidman's NO SHOW at the CMA Disaster fundraiser...courtesy of the "last orb fansie in the world" over at the E! orb Positive thread...who posted this twitter stalker entry by misstrashley who is located in Nashville...

"misstrashley: Nicole Kidman is at the zoo. Need to find that ***** and tell her I love TO DIE FOR."
about 7 hours ago via TweetDeck

...now of course, the usual reaction from the orb's stragler monkeys on this subject would be..."well kidman was NOT "available" due most likely to be on location shooting a pic." So, was kidman REALLY unavailable to attend...in person...and to answer the phones for this most worthy cause...OR was she STILL IN NASHVILLE...and at the zoo today as this twitter stalker, posted on the orb's Positive E! thread ...states? Or, did kidman SIMPLY skip this most worthy of causes, so as NOT to answer phones...as she is perhaps...ABOVE such menial work...AND because as is apparent...orb ex niki taylor WAS THERE answering phones and pitching into this most worthy cause? If kidman WAS in Nashville last night, why did she decide to simply send in a video? Well, it seems a true diva would simply send in a canned performance on video and avoid jumping in and getting as they say, her hands dirty relating to the public! It would seem the answers are very clear! And IT AINT she could NOT bear to be away from her babies! HA!

Tara said...

lets face it if Kidman were manning phones and Niki Taylor was there
most of the people would look and say why Keith why?

Does anyone else remember that right after the motorcycle photos were going to be released that there was a big ta do that announced Keith and Niki Taylor weren't together any longer? I think Niki must be some kind of threat to Kidman.

Jake said...

Oh yea maclen....the babies are not even a thought!

She had enough of the phones last year. Do we really think MS HW wants to talk to the likes of Nashville. Not unless there is something in it for her. Sharing the spotlight with others is not her MO. LOL

Surely, Tara and Jake, kidman is certifiably uber sensitive about her looks. She has overly injected and procedurized her face...from the top of her forehead to the botton of her chin. It doesnt take a genius to just imagine that kidman WAS CLEARLY HORRIFIED at appearing...IN PERSON...at the CMA fundraiser...even sitting in the FARTHEST reaches of the phone bank from niki taylor. Have you checked out recent photos of niki taylor? You got to figure that kidman was horrified that CMA would actually do a "split screen" of the two...seeing as they ARE dueling "nashville transplants." I just read in taylor's wiki bio...


"...and country music artist Keith Urban, whom she met on the set of Urban's 2002 music video Somebody Like You. Taylor and her twin sons later moved from South Florida to Nashville, Tennessee, to be with Urban. They dated on-and-off until December 2004. The following month, Urban met actress Nicole Kidman and consequently ended his relationship with Taylor.
Taylor lives with her husband and daughter in a French colonial house on 7 acres (28,000 m2) in Brentwood, Tennessee.

...taylor MOVED to Nashville when she hooked up with orb...and after it ended...she STILL lives in a "suburb of Nashville." Can you imagine...when it ends for mutt and jeff...that kidman, with all the PR BS about how she just adores Nashville...would ACTUALLY STILL LIVE IN NASHVILLE afterwards?! That's a huge laugh just contemplating it!

maclen said...

So....make that 3 directors who have now DUMPED the Danish Girl...

http://www.screendaily.com/news/production/hallstrom-leaves-the-danish-girl-casts-persbrandt-for-the-hypnotist/5027548.article

Hallstrom leaves The Danish Girl, casts Persbrandt for The Hypnotist

"EXCLUSIVE: Lasse Hallstrom leaves Nicole Kidman sex change feature but ramps up plans for The Hypnotist.

"Lasse Hallstrom has left the planned Nicole Kidman starrer The Danish Girl. The film about the world’s first sex change operation was to have been made in Germany this summer, but now stands without a director.

There has been too much back and forth with the film, I don´t think the script is perfect and since Rachel Weisz left the project two weeks ago, there is not a complete cast,” Hallstrom told Screen. “This is a sensitive subject, and I feel a film about it should not be rushed into production without everything being perfect. But I have told the producers that if they don´t find a new director now, I´d be happy to make the film at a later stage.”

Ha! Really? Kidman and Weisz WE'RE the complete cast? Over 2 years in "production" is RUSHING the project? 3 MIA directors...3 MIA co-stars...and all that CONTINUES TO REMAIN is the desperate kidman. Well, at least kidman STILL has Trespass with nic "drunken spousal abuser" cage to hawk this... well... whenever they get around to announcing a US release date for this thing. So, it seems that kidman's vanity shingle, Blossom Films is basically riding on a summer "teen" romcom...a flick kidman WAS TO STAR in once upon a time...as wiki explains...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monte_Carlo_(2011_film)

"In 2005, Hollywood trade magazine Variety announced that siblings Jez and John Henry Butterworth would be writing the script. It also reported that actress Nicole Kidman had signed on to play the lead as well as produce the film with Rick Schwartz.[10]

The Butterworths were later fired and Tom Bezucha was hired to direct and co-write Monte Carlo. Bezucha and Maria Maggenti turned in a draft of the screenplay by July 2007; it starred Kidman as "one of three Midwestern schoolteachers who decide to ditch a disappointing no-frills holiday in Paris and pose as wealthy women vacationing in Monaco".[11] However, in 2010, executives had the film rewritten again after deciding that the film should be made more youthful.

So, when it gets to a point that kidman CANNOT even get a role in her OWN vanity shingle's project...that is telling you all you need to know about her so called...career!

jasfro said...

Well maclen that would be a convenient little story for the skeptics regarding Niki but it's not true. She was already in Nashville and met Keith through a mutual Nashville-based hair/makeup artist named Debra Wingo. Once Niki got to Nashville she was interested in doing some music video work and that's how they met.

And fyi they are only dueling in the skeptics minds. You might as well throw Laura S in that fantasy and every other decent looking man AND woman on the planet, per the last 5 years of posts here LOL

maclen said...

Ha! Yes...the LAST remnents of fansie revisionism...AS pathetic and AS humorous as it reads! Certainly as pathetic AND humorous as orb's cd sales...or kidman's film role NON potential!

maclen said...

So, right on the heels of the news that Director hallstrom has ditched the "long in decay" Danish Girl, comes this little story...

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/james-wans-spectre-attracting-international-188500

James Wan's 'Spectre' Attracting International Attention (Cannes)

" With the Wan-directed Insidious topping the U.K. box office charts in its third week of release (it has grossed more than $51 million worldwide), sales for his next film, Spectre, have been hot in the hands of international buyers in Cannes. IM Global, which is selling the project at the Marche du Film, has closed major territory deals that include Icon Film Distribution in Australia, Koch Media in Germany, Gussi Films in Latin America, Top Film in Russia, Aurum Films in Spain and Momentum Pictures in the U.K.

Wan wrote the script for the supernatural thriller himself and has Nicole Kidman starring and producing through her Blossom Films banner (Rabbit Hole)."

So, the kidman "produced" Blossom film has made deals for "territories" in OZ, Germany, Latin America, Russia, Spain and the UK? And this other story also out TODAY states...

http://www.dreadcentral.com/news/44479/cannes-2011-im-global-lands-multiple-international-deals-spectre

Cannes 2011: IM Global Lands Multiple International Deals for Spectre

"With sales like that before the film is anywhere near completion, we suspect we'll be hearing about some Stateside distro shortly along with more storyline details other than the increasingly common "supernatural thriller" label."

Well, it seems "inept team kidman" has been working overtime on the "PR BS"...RIGHT ON THE HEELS of the news of Hallstrom ditching Danish girl! So, what is all these "foreign deals?" Is it that kidman CANNOT get a greenlight for a "stateside" distributuion? Is all this PR BS simply an attempt to try and drum up some..OR ANY...interest in a kidman flick in the US? Recall, as I've mentioned before, kidman's already in the can film, Trespass...to my knowledge, also has a release date according to IMDB of Sept 1...BUT in the Netherlands! And it has an Oct 14 release date...BUT in Sweden...AND AS OF YET...NOT in the US. Now, again, as the case with Rabbit Hole, IT MAY eventually be released in the US, But I maintain the film is such an expected "mess"...seems they may simply sit on it. And when it does finally get released, it WILL be another unmistakable box office flop.

maclen said...

...post scripted...

...so, JUST to "belabor" the point...cause it is just soooo selfishly satisfying! Kidman no doubt has just struck out with another of her patently "dreary and weepy" indie flicks, The Danish Girl...(perhaps if she had renamed it, "The American Girl" she could have gotten a US deal to get it made!)...kidman is clearly ramping up the PR BS for a film from Director James Won, who's last film grossed a relatively massive amount of about #50 mill...from a film budget of ONLY $1.5 milion! Also apparently in the news is the film, "Stoker"...with "FIRST TIME"
american language Director Chan-Wook Park and "FIRST TIME SCREENWRITER" Wentworth Miller. All this is certainly a FAR CRY from the HUGE PAYCHECKS...HUGELY BUDGETED...HUGELY EPIC...HUGELY HYPED blockbusters of only a few years ago. Another piece of this ongoing tapestry of kidman's descent into clear irrelevency, on a technical point...IS the budget of these films, WHEN OR IF...they even get to that point. Originally, Rabbit hole's reported film budget was reported at $10 mil from two sources. Then, when it was purchased at Toronto, the budget was claimed at only $5 mil...and of course, it ONLY GROSSED $2 mil at the box office! Hilariously, reports of the budget for the Danish girl were at $15 mil! I suppose you can save alot of money when all they ever casted was 2 ROLES in the film! That shows you how "close" this movie WAS EVER to getting made! It will be interested in seeing HOW MUCH of a budget these two "horror" flicks will get. Also interesting, seems kidman is taking the "skeptic's"....and THIS "cynic's" advice...based on her ever growing bizzare facial transformations...she's decided to get into HORROR flicks!

So, kidman...that international champion of woman's rights...the much self ballyhooed UN Ambassador out to save the world...one film at a time...COULD NOT bother to get her limo driver to take her to the CMA charity disater fundraiser...but of course she WILL show up to orb's induction ceremony to get in a few photo ops! Obviously, niki taylor WAS NOT in attendence!

...It is apparent that it is "Music Builds: The CMT Disaster Relief Concert" and not "CMA" as was mentioned in a preceding comment from said client...........
.......and it is apparent that "Stoker" according to recent "reports" would indicate that it does not as some rumors may indicate, in fact have anything to do with "Bram Stroker' or "Vampires" and is technically categorized as a "thriller" and not a "horror" film, as was indicated by a preceding comment by said client.

Hatti said...

Hi maclen, Your remarks pulled me out or my recuperating state to reply. I came home from the hosp after a horrendous time without a lot of energy to post. But I have been reading.

Yes, I do feel she should move toward the scary!! Her face looks like she has bunches of popcorn styrofoam pieces under her skin. Just terrible.

Now as far as this Star that KU received. GAC paid for that? And it seems GAC is giving his video a better rating then anyone else?

I need your expertise on this one. I believe Moosie Girl's influence got him his Star some way. He certainly rambled about all that Nash has been to both of them. Please how ridiculous. Whenever he starts thanking baby girl I find her pocketbook has had something to do with the award!! ((giggles))

Tara said...

Apparently the walk of fame is highly political/influential and the rumor is Kidman and GAC are behind the star. But until he started blabbering about Kidman, his speech was very warm and appreciative about Nashville and he did seem touched
and we all know he isn't a good actor since he can't seem to remember what year his oldest was born.

Hey Hatti, I was beginning to wonder about you! I'm relieved to see your ok...and back on the thread...get better quick!
Well, as to this Music City star...this venerable "honor"...that's been in existance all of about 5 years! Simply put, it's for PR...just like the star on the Hollywood walk of fame...a celeb simply gets nominated... they pay, in the case of the Music city star, $7,500 and they get the star. With such meager requirements it's simply a case of "scheduling" WHEN they get it. Orb IS in very bad shape right now. He no doubt decided on this time...in advance of his US tour beginning next month as the time. It IS interesting that he picked this time...as opposed to late oct or early nov when it could have been used for PR for his album. But as I've commented before, orb realizes his strongest point left is NOT his music...but his live shows. And of course, as Ive pointed out, even that IS NOT AS strong as it was 2 years ago...or even last year! One thing Ive been wondering about, and have meant to look into, is doe his tour even have "sponsors?" Or is it, as I believe you mentioned to me, Hattie, has Ticketmaster/LiveNation taken over his tour?

maclen said...

Crickey! Kidman IS clearly entering the "melanie griffith/mickey rourke' phase in the warped facial features department! Another pic of kidman at the walk of fame star ceremony yesterday...

http://www.holymoly.com/celebrity-news/pictures/eyes-wide-open-hm-pictures-day-16th-may-201156242

...seriously, she should have her right "jimmy eye" looked at...that swelling above it looks pretty severe. This SHOULD be in an advertisement on the dangers of botox and "fillers" of the face!

Hatti said...

I did read that Ticketmaster/LN is going to pay KU 487,000 per venue. Now that seems like a tremendous amount of money. I can't see how a company can pay up front that kind of money to a person that can't fill a 10,000 seat venue!!

Looks like he is going to make his 40 mil again this year.

Yes maclen, it is good to be back. I start work tomorrow and believe it or not I am looking forward to it. :)

mike said...

Hatti, think that $487,000 guarantee was for the defying gravity tour (when Keith had other major artists on the bill). Not the current get closer tour (where he is the only draw).

Hatti said...

I thought that too mike, but that is not the way it read, at least to me. It said up comming tour. Wasn't the DG tour all the festivals? I can't keep up with all this stuff. ((giggles)))

maclen said...

Yeah, I also think the $487k per show is little high. But if orb found a "corporate chump" to guarantee that...more power to him. Where exactly did you read that number Hattie?
As to the tours supporting orb's Defying Sales cd...there was the "Escape Together World Tour 2009" 60+ tour of OZ, Canada and US tour and then "Summer Lovin' 2010" gigs of county fairs and festivals also in support of his defying sales cd. Considering that orb's 2009 tour grossed a total of $42mil...paying him basically a guarenteee of $30mil upfront is quit a risk, as mike mentions...orb wont have elite players like swifty or lady ant or the other 4 to 5 main players who opened for him to draw in the crowds.

maclen said...

Fading Fan said...
"She really needs to learn what "less is more" means!!! I for the life of me cannot see what he sees in her."

Yes, as I noted, kidman skipping the CMT fundraiser because niki taylor WAS there manning phones does reveal how she is VERY insecure about how she looks. Those photos of kidman at the Star ceremony are a horror movie in the making!

Jake said...

Yea maclen...the pics at the hockey games were worse. I think she cant do botox anymore so her face is just falling apart. I wish someone would tell her. It seems she cant see if for herself! LOL

Yes, Jake, that is what I believe...the LACK of botox is causing her face to basically...melt! If you look at this photo of kidman in Feb...

http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2519308/nicole-kidman-keith-urban-grammys-2011-02/

...and then this one from april...

http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2532624/nicole-kidman-acm-awards-2011-06/

...and then this one just a few days ago for May...

http://www.holymoly.com/celebrity-news/pictures/eyes-wide-open-hm-pictures-day-16th-may-201156242

...you can see that ONLY 3 months ago, she WAS apparently still "botoxified" and a few months later, her face is noticably falling apart. And what occured in this time frame is kidman began filming the HBO tv movie. Clearly, she's reacting to all the jokes and mocking about how her face is "frozen" and how she can no longer "emote" in her film performances. So now, the issue...beyond her face beginning to fall...is those hideous looking "blood worms" she has for lips!

Hatti said...

maclen, It was on one of those links on the board. You know which board posts all the good stuff!! ((giggles)))

I thought holy cow is Moosie girl backing that number? I read somewhere that she or Ruppie was affliated with ticketmaster. Cause you can't have a failing country crooner when you're a big star in HW don't ya know!! ((giggles))))

Jake said...

yea maclen she is just right for those Sigourney Weaver movies. She could be one of those alien monsters easy! LOL

maclen said...

So, in this week's sales report...

http://www.roughstock.com/blog/my-kinda-party-retains-1-position-on-albums-chart

11 10 Jason Aldean My Kinda Party 28,442 1,175,580

66 82 Kenny Chesney Hemingway's Whiskey 5,801 811,839

116 155 Keith Urban Get Closer 3,001 586,647

...and after orb's MASSIVE bump of 2 or 3k "BUMP"...orb falls 1,402 cds to 3k from 4k! Again, VERY middling numbers...up 1k...down 1k...next week orb probably falls to mid 2k numbers...how pathetic. So while orb rattles around in the cd sales basement... the Flatts...whose cd came OUT THE SAME DAY as orb's...has now upped their sales lead over the orb to 230,097 cds for a total of 816,744 cds sold!
NOw notice another point mentioned in this report...

"Get Closer by Keith Urban is getting closer to 600,000 scanned as he works “Without You” up to the Top of the charts"

...it's seems this report quite often mentions orb's singles "working their way" up the singles charts. Despite the fact that orb's first single FAILED to make #1...and that chesney AND paisley's singles have alreadly "lapped" orb 's single on the chart...with chesney's single already reaching #1 and now descending and paisly's currently sits at #3 to orb's #6. So orb's "singles chart" performance IS HARDLY ANYTHING TO BRAG ABOUT! I just read yesterday on the Roughstock blog, that chesney, who's cd came out only about 2 months before orb's...ALREADY has 3 #1 singles from that cd. But you need to realize, with orb's pathetic cd sales...Billboard's Country singles chart is ALL orb has left. As I've pondered before, to orb, the singles ARE THE END TO ITSELF...the end being to get them to #1...NOT to PR his cd sales...but to use the singles to PR his upcoming tour. As opposed to say swifty, who apparently IS NOT CONCERNED whether her singles make to Billboards #1. That is because for swifty, the singles are simply to promote her album sales...which have now reached 3.4mil. Her singles also have the added bonus of selling into the millions. Orb SIMPLY wants to brag of the "#1 hit songs"...despite the pathetic sales of his cd...and as I also suspect...the far more pathetic sales of his concert tickets this go around!

maclen said...

Hatti said...
"maclen, It was on one of those links on the board. You know which board posts all the good stuff!! ((giggles)))"

Oh well Hatti...then you know it could simply be just PR BS! Trying to keep the orb "looking that RELEVANT!

Jake said...
"yea maclen she is just right for those Sigourney Weaver movies. She could be one of those alien monsters easy! LOL"

Yes Jake, kidman is clearly shoveling her PR BS over those few "low budget" horror or thriller flicks or the "elephant lady" thing she is simply "considering"..."hovering" over...or "sniffing" around. I'm STILL waiting to hear a firm US release date for the flick with Nic "spousal abuser" cage. As is totally predictable, what "low budget" "no frills" or "ragtag" snoozer kidman could possibly hook is for sure apparently...very UNCERTAIN...one thing IS FOR SURE, kidman is DEFINATELY NOT getting any outright offers! Weisz IS probably getting a role in that Oz flick and maybe the bourne flick as well...kidman is only picking over cinematic carcasses!

Hatti said...

Yes maclen, that could be let's see if that comes out again. I don't know how KU could make anything on these half filled venues. Unless there is a way Moosie girl is funneling money to bump up his earnings to make him look successful I don't know why TM/LN would want to throw good money after bad!

Hatti said...

Oh this is a good one!! Blake Shelton in Feb was challenged about stealing KU's music from Days Go Bye. When he was confronted he said," So what I don't believe Keith Urban is an American citizen so he has no rights!!" I am shocked that this guy is so stupid!! I know Nash has not been kind to KU b/c he is not of the establishment but to blatantly come out with something like that is just so ignorant!!

Tara said...

As always in the case of Kidman and Keith --- follow the money trail

Where was Ansel Davis on Sunday?
Where was anyone who had anything to do with Keith getting where he is?
Nope the only one that matter is Kidman.

And if you are reading this Keith
perhaps you might want to associate dates with the gifts you got
for instance Wedding day= Bentley
Waylon Guitar= Sunday's birth
Asten Martin = Faith's birth
that way you won't screw up
but then was the screw up on purpose? He does play games sometimes.

Hatti said...

Yes Tara....But you forgot to mention he got his own label for the CD to be all about Moosie and then the Oprah show just make sure we all know she has to be his savior.

Now of course the Star that Ruppie got for Moosie girl to have another ode to KU's savior!! Yes he has been paid handsomely to promote her fantasy world for all of us to witness!!

Thanks KU just what we need in our stressful lives you spinning fairytales!((giggles)))

Well, unless there is some independant source that reports something to that effect, it really cant be taken serious, Hattie. As is the case with orb and FORMER record label, Capnash...although orb is in fact no longer signed to the label, he obviously has a "distribution" deal...and all I believe is orb does NOT have as sweet a deal as he ONCE had with them. NOw again, I cant verify whether orb has any sponsors for this upcoming tour...or as you mention, LN/TM is "footing the bills" on this one. Of course, in the past orb DID deal with TicketMaster, what with his surely compliance with their..and orb's "ticket scalping" schemes. But simply since the merger of TM and LN...orb may have sold out his soul to LiveNation out of sheer desperation and nessesity!

Hey Hatti. . .

Crazy with Curiosity,

Hatti said...

Hi Hoosier..Days Go By...he took the music and slowed it down dropped it a little and there you go!! When you hear it it is very obvious. That wasn't the worst of it. It was what he said when he was challenged.

Hatti said...

Just incase anyone would like to hear the video. The link is as follows:

http://aftermidnite.com/page/bgtv.html

Also did anyone see Moosie on Sesame Street. No Sunday wasn't with her she was too busy hitting on Oscar of course!! ((giggles))

I really feel she should not be invited to be on kid's shows even though I'm sure she gave a big donation. With her history of movies like Birth and some other disturbing films she really is not kiddie material!!

I'm not one to complain often but I did voice my indignation to the board of directors!!

Hatti said...

Oh Hoosier I'm sorry I misunderstood it's..All About Tonight. I think that's right.

When you go to the link scroll down to BS guilty conscience incase I didn't post that in my previous post.

I am still a little fuzzy from my hosp stay. ((giggles)))

Yea I thought it was funny she had to make a big donation to get on Sesame Street just to hit on Oscar! LOL

"Hi Hoosier..Days Go By...he took the music and slowed it down dropped it a little and there you go!! When you hear it it is very obvious. That wasn't the worst of it. It was what he said when he was challenged."
Just incase anyone would like to hear the video. The link is as follows:"

http://aftermidnite.com/page/bgtv.html

Well, Hattie...as much as I would be interested in commenting on this subject...you dont mention which shelton song's music was stolen from orb's Days go by. That link for the video you give...I'm presuming is shelton's song, only turns up, "Not Found - Error 404". And when I google the subject, I dont get anything on it...and when I google that quote by shelton, nothing also comes up on that. Which shelton song is it?
Now, having just checked out orb's Days Go By on youtube...I will tell you who DEFINITELY DID steal from orb's Days Go By...and it is ORB HIMSELF! On orb's Put You In A Song! Listen...

Keith Urban - Put You In A Song


...BOTH songs even begin with a few HEY HEY HEYs! So after my extensive essays on orb's clear plagiarizing on "Til summer comes around" from Bread's "guitar Man...and orb's "Long Hot Summer" a musical "gumbo" from a menagerie of 80's sources...a cross between The Police's "Dont stand so close to me" with a little Eddie money's "Take me home tonight"...and Greg kihn's "Breakup song"...this new example is NOT SURPRISING AT ALL!

hoosierlady said...

Don't forget to check and see if Keefus wrote the song!

As we know, the orb rarely writes his own alone. . . .

Thanks, Hatti, you're the girl!

Hatti said...

Oh maclen....I understand what you are saying. I know it's been done more times than not. I think that's why KU is not saying anything about it. But I have to tell you it wasn't that he took the music and used it. He said he would steal like it was nothing, ok. It is what he said about KU not being an American so he doesn't have rights here. That bothered me to the enth degree!!

Lets try that link again I missed something.

For some reason, Hattie, when I copy and paste that link, it still sends me to that "Not Found: Error 404. So..."engaging my own powers of deduction" and doing my own investigation...I was able to find it...courtesy of the "last orb fansie in the world"...Im sure your referring to this...

Blake Shelton's Guilty Conscience

..where the host Blair Garner "needles" shelton about how his song "All about Tonight" sounds alot like orb's "Days go by". Well, listening to the interview, I get the impression that shelton and garner are simply BS'ing with each other. Shelton at the start talks about how he's "waiting" for the other shoe to fall' on a "set up"...because they have a past relationship...of kidding around with each other. As with this exchange:

shelton: What would blake not do?

garner: Steal?

shelton: Well, of course I would steal!

...and then when garner states about sheltons song, what if they "put it in the hands of a more talented singer" to which shelton responds...."Donna Summers?" In my opinion, these guys are just doing a comedic bit for the show. Kind of like when celebs go on howard stern and they start agreeing or getting just as outrageous as stern.

mike said...

Maclen, thats how I saw it too. Just kidding around.

maclen said...

mike said...
"Maclen, thats how I saw it too. Just kidding around."

Yeah, that's my take mike. BUT that's in regard to shelton's quote about orb not being a citizen and not having rights to the music...but the song does sound like orb's...as Ive mentioned a few songs of orb's...especially co-written by richard marx...sound alot like songs from the 80's. That is when marx first had his most success...in the 80's. But again, I'm not THAT versed in shelton's music...and as Hattie explains...IF shelton IS serious...that is pretty extreme! Now getting back to orb...does ANYONE ELSE think that orb's last single, "Put you in a song"...is a cookie cutter knockoff of orb' past song "Days go by?" I certainly heard it IMMEDIATELY of listening to the older song!

Hatti said...

Well maclen...I took exception to the American citizen remark b/c the mind set of Nashville has always been that if you don't come from there then you're not a member of Nash society. I know that KU did well before Moosie but there were only a few that felt his talent should be seen and heard.

To prove a point Grand Ole Opry!!

BS sounded just the way I've heard it for alot of years!! I like country music but I don't like small mindedness!! That is just the way it came off to me.

We do know that song is Days Go By I guess he don't care that it comes out that it isn't his music so fooling or not he came off pretty darn ignorant as far as I'm concerned!

Now maybe he is just a tool that Blair can manipulate well then the guy should smarten up!!

Sure Hatti, I see what you mean...but what shelton may actually believe has never been in any consideration by me. NOw as to the orb, having followed his career for the past 5 years, I see no indication of any 'ostracizing" of orb by the "Country" community. In fact as I see today, and as Ive called it with kidman, the community actually "subsidizes" the orb's career today...to a degree which I believe is above and beyond what orb actually deserves. Orb was nominated for "Entertainer of the year" in 2005 by the CMAs...and he won...and every year since then, he's been repeatedly nominated...and he's lost the past 5 year. BUT....I have NO DOUBT he will be nominated again this year. I mentioned a few years ago that the "Country" community is very "sexist" when it comes to who gets continually nominated...and its mostly the men. Prior to swify's win in 2009, who has been huge the past few years, the last females to win were the dixie chicks in 2000, 8 years prior. So woman in Country HAVE to have EXTRAORDINARY careers, as swifty is having...or carrie underwood did a few years ago to be even recognized in the very top awards, as she was apparently the first woman nominated for the 2009 ACM "Entertainer" since the dixie chicks were also nominated in 2000! So, clearly men...and clearly orb... dont have it AS hard in the "Country" community as apparently woman have!

Jake said...

Yea they are pretty closed to outsiders. Maybe Pork Chop just reinforced that mind set! LOL

Hatti said...

Well maclen, I understand your looking at five almost six years? I'm talking about way before that. You will not see the ostracizing now, No!! But it was very much in view before he became big and had a large fan base.

When he joined Cap Nash they were not financially stable and they took him on for a song. He pulled them into the black single handedly. But that didn't happen till Kix and Marty beat down quite a few doors for KU.

He laid tracks for AJ and some other big wigs. They also felt he was talented and had a lot of respect for KU.

I am not defending him for these past five almost six years. I understand why he caved in and Moosie won. One of the most prominent reasons was he could not trust the American public to believe what was happening to him. He had a reason for feeling that way! So he took the bit and found a way to make it profitable for him.

I have always said, I hope he gets every penny she has b/c she is a dangerous person when it comes to her pocketbook and the people associated with her kind of money!!

I know you are very resourceful maclen so if you research 1994 to 2003 you will see the writing on the wall. Don't believe what comes out of KUs' mouth in front of the media he is doing what he does best surviving!!

maclen said...

Yes Hatti, I do know what you are talking about. But all music acts struggle to make it in any entertainment biz. As I've mentioned with woman in country music...country wannabes from other countries I'm sure would find it rougher to get into the "in crowd"...but I wouldnt neccessarily say that it was exclusive. Once they've "made it"...whether they "marry" into lalaland royalty...as kidman did...or finally made it through sheer determination...as orb eventually did...their "mis-steps" will simply tiptoe them back out of the top tier "in crowd." That's why I'm here, to simply chronical those mis-steps, and to be honest, I have no interest in orb's early "hardships" in the country biz. As I previously mentioned...the "industry" surely ran the dixie chicks out of the business rather quickly! So I have no illusions over the reality.

maclen said...

So, I notice orb is to perform at tonight's Billboard awards. Of course, orb isnt nominated for anything...what a surprise. I did notice that orb won a Billboard award in 2009...a "Concert Marketing & promotion Award"...

http://blog.mozes.com/?p=1456

Keith Urban Wins 2009 Billboard Concert Marketing & Promotion Award!

...marketing and promotion!? Isnt it THAT typical that orb DOESNT win for music or a song...but because KC Masterpiece and Kingsford were his tour sponsors! Technically, KC and Kingsford SHOULD have gotten the award...for those no doubt delicious steaks and hamburgers I heard they provided at orb's gigs! As I've previously mentioned, cant find any info on who is sponsoring orb's tour...a quick check even at monkyland doesnt give any yet...and I do know that the message board had a huge thread section two years ago for KC and kingsford...anyone with membership know if they have any info on that?
Now as to the Billboard awards tonight...according to this article...

http://blog.gactv.com/blog/2011/05/19/keith-urban-to-perform-on-billboard-music-awards/

Keith Urban To Perform on Billboard Music Awards

"This is the first time Keith has performed on the show and he is set to perform music from his latest album, Get Closer."

...and I'm wondering if orb will perform his expected NEXT single, Long hot summer. There is currently worries at the "urbananaysis" thread at the Country Chart Talk forum...that orb's expected next single...long hot summer...MAY be released BEFORE orb's current single can reach #1...as occurred when his first single DIDNT reach #1 because the next single came out and killed any chance of that. Orb's tour begins in about a month...wouldnt be surprised if he started ramping up promo for the tour.

Hatti said...

((giggles))) Will KU's current single ever reach no.1?? Maybe he should just introduce new singles till he can get one that will hit no.1 without manipulation!! ((giggles)))

I think this gig is a promo for his tour. He needs to do something. I have a feeling that Moosie girl herself may be sponsoring his tour. After all she needs something for PR since her career is in the dunny farther down the pipe than his!!!

Can't you see it now? ((Nicole Kidman famous Oscar award winner)) all over the buses!! Maybe advertising Blossom Productions and a list of her most recent flops!!

Boy now that's a way of digging deep into a pocketbook!! ;)

maclen said...

Well, Hattie you did take the lead on whether or not orb has a deal with LiveNation to bankroll his tour...and whether orb has an upfront deal to be payed per gig. Now the factor you mentioned was the exact number he may be payed if that was in fact the case. For instance the number you put out would give orb a guarentee of close to $30 mil...and as Ive mentioned prior, his tour of 2009 grossed $42 mil...now would LN settle for a potential of only making $12 mil to bankroll orb's tour? I certainly dont see orb in THAT strong a position. As I mentioned orb's tour was sponsored by KC and Kingsford in 2009...as they ALSO sponsored orb's summer tour in 2010. The fact that they may NOT be sponsoring orb THIS year MAY in fact be connected to orb NOT getting signed to his recording contract with CapNash THIS YEAR. So, then orb may have gone to LN/TM and made a deal. And as another effect of all that...it MAY also be the reason orb is VERY LIGHT this year on major artist support for opening acts...as orb will ONLY have jake owen opening FOR THE ENTIRE US TOUR...and the guitar shop contest winner opening a few gigs. And speaking of LN/TM...I really regret NOT being able to check out the monkeyland message boards...and the no doubt monkeymembers complaints about how they are unable to get tickets to orb's upcoming tour on the fansiesite...and have to pay HUNDREDS of dollars from the brigade of monkeyland scalpers! HA! Those were the days!

Keith Urban's 'Long Hot Summer' lights up 2011 Billboard Music Awards

...the PR for the NEXT orb single has begun...and I can almost predict the monkeys over at the Country Chart Talk "urbananalysis" thread sweating out that orb is already abandoning his current single for the next...BEFORE it can reach #1! BECAUSE, as I've mentioned...the Country Singles chart IS THE ONLY...perhaps the one last thing... the monkeys have that orb has been even modestly successful with...his #1 hits! But as Ive been commenting on since last year, when capnash RUSH RELEASED orb's album last year...orb DOES NOT have alot of time to "strategize" his MOST effective "PR"...as Ive noted...he has been HORRENDOUS at it the past 5 years!

maclen said...

...post tres...

...so is it just me...or is kidman actually trying to transform herself into taylor swift? Was just perusing the Billboard arrivals over at Getty Images...

kidman

swifty

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/114504709/Getty-Images-Entertainment

...although swifty wears her bangs over her left eye...kidman wears her's over her right eye! HA! Kidman's face DEFINATELY looks puffier...no doubt her latest "procedure"...and swifty of course DOES HAVE her naturally "unrepulsive" lips...kidman's eyes look slighty closed by the puffiness. And I previously mentioned the swelling over kidman's right eye...does anyone else notice the seemingly reddish or bloodshot of kidman's right eye in the getty photos? Again, I seem to be noticing these rather bizarre ticks regarding kidman's face lately...cant be a good sign.

Hatti said...

I thought she had enough makeup on to paint a house. I think her face is such a mess nothing will repair it.

I have always thought TS was a minnie Moosie Girl for some reason they both seem to spout love and gratitude it just doesn't feel genuine to me.

Let's see what happens to TS when she is no longer the kiddie favorite. We may see a younger Moosie rear it's ugly head. Heaven help the man she hog ties!((giggles))))

mike said...

He looked a little "painted" too. Looks like hes spending more and more time in her plastic surgeons office right along with her. Is she going for the Demi Moore Ashton Kutcher, cougar and her cub look?

maclen said...

Clearly Hattie, music always have their flavors of the moments! And swifty is having her moment. Orb's moment was about 5 years ago when he seemed on top of the game, but decided to go "full plastic soul" and anemically bland as "kidman lite!"
Yes mike, orb clearly "sandblasted" ALL the character from his face as well. Clearly a reason he is bleeding fans...he's too superficial for his once adoring fans who were too sophisticated to remain gushing and aweing over his frosted highlights...but now too old to grab the eyes of the teens and tweens...who are now also mistaking him for a wax figure at madame tussauds!

Keith and Plastic Surgery- if you have seen him up close no. Teeth yes and make up that is a bit too much
but major work in the last few years
I don't think so he is really aging.

On the e board there was an article about the mansion in Nashville but nothing about the farm. Perhaps the reason why is that questions would be asked about why they own two properties in Nashville.

How sad is Sunday Urban? Really she seems so distant and unhappy.
Look at the latest pictures from yesterday. Keith Kidman, the baby FM, Sunday and the assistant going through LAX that little girl is miserable.

"Keith and Plastic Surgery- if you have seen him up close no. Teeth yes and make up that is a bit too much

Well, tara, I thing any "major" work he may have had done would have been done years ago. Now again, there seems to be parsing of whether he's had "extensive" work on his face, or whether he's simply had a few "touch up" precedures. I maintain both, but I think orb has clearly been 'touching" up his face for the past 10 years. Which is his trouble spots, the wrinkles and crowsfeet below and besides his eyes.
So last night I did a little research on orb's apparent "work" which seems to go back to 2001. I've just posted it at the E! negative thread...here it is...

So, basically by age 34 in jan 2001 orb apparently WAS NOT aging very well when he appeared at the 26th AMA's.

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/75948907/WireImage

...to which he evidently "remedied" in only 4 months, revealed at the 36th ACM's on May 2001...

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/104903433/WireImage

...and jumping one full year later...orb is looking even more fab at the 37th ACM's on May 2002...

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/104982170/WireImage

...in which he NO LONGER even resembles the orb of early 2001, but someone else...like tom petty! Now, jumping only 7 months later to Dec of 2002...

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/105713358/WireImage

...orb is now beginning to already resemble the orb of present day...all granite jawed and super smooth! Now I want to jump forward a few years...to 2005...to point out a very bizzare period. In Jan of 2005, at the G'Day LA: Australia Week where he ironically first met kidman...

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/51999092/Getty-Images-Entertainment

..orb's face looks slightly swollen yet rather smooth around those problem eye areas. Now only on month later, on Feb 2005 at the EMI grammy post party....

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/105571714/FilmMagic

...orb's face looks to have gone down, yet now shows prominant and slightly swollen crows feet at his left eye. His "age" is once again beginning to rear it's ugly head. So basically orb has had this pattern for the previous 10 years. Now, of course if orb "looks" to be less than wrinkle free at some points...as he did here in the picture on the left...

http://image.oliviawildezone.info/images/www.famousplastic.com/images/keithurbanbotox.jpg

...recall, age is constant...so the "procedures" must also remain constant.

What was with those clothes? I know I was alive in the decade of the 2,000's, (I checked), but I do not remember anything that even shared the same universe with clothes like the ones in the first few candid pics.

Realizing that I was not then, and, by the grace of my Creator will not ever be a country music fan, was dressing like a sateen peacock "in" during the early part of the decade?

Heartfelt condolences to all who lived through it and now have to look back and remember the lust.

155 ??? Keith Urban Get Closer ??? ???????

...so yes...orb is ONCE AGAIN OFF the weekly sales report. And of course, the last artist's sales number is a new cd by John Rich of 2,596 cds sold. So orb is very near that 2k sales I figured he would be selling at the MOST by the time his "world tour" begins in about another month. And that would be about 1k cds less than last week. As I say, 1k up...1k down...not VERY impressive!

Ha! Yes, hoosier, orb was apparently "reliving" the 80's in the early 2000's...a decade he has obviously been VERY influenced by...as will be revealed by his upcoming summer single! Orb surely would have fit right easily into "A Flock of Seagulls", "Twisted Sister" or even the band whose lead singer I've read orb compared to, "Bon Jovi!"

Jake said...

maclen...Hoosier...You gotta remember Oz is fifty years behind us. They didnt have drugs, they were still in the 80s for fashion. Around 2004 he got with the program. Somebody was giving him good advise.

How come nobody wants to give Pork Chop a fashion update? LOL

maclen said...

Well, here is some NEW news from the orb!

http://tasteofcountry.com/keith-urban-new-stage-production-upcoming-tour/Keith

Urban to Debut New Stage Production on Upcoming Tour

"Keith Urban chatted with 97.3 The Dawg about his upcoming summer tour, which is going to be full of exciting new surprises and lots of things fans have not seen before. Urban is giving fans more bang for their hard-earned buck by coming up with a creative new stage show and production."
“I’ve been touring a lot, for 21 years, but so many people have been out to see us multiple times, sometimes on the same tour, so we want to change it up,” Urban says. What a considerate superstar he is, working to give his fans more for their money by keeping things fresh. “It’s going to be a new stage, new production, lots of new songs,” Urban reveals."

Yes, so let me take a few guesses... at some point a boy MAY quite randomly appear near the stage where orb will then spot him and invite him on stage to play a little something on his guitar.

Now, if orb believes that will be NEW to his US fans...I think someone should inform orb on the concept of the innertubes...and that most of his fans have probably already seen these videos all over the nets...so it will probably not be new to them!

And will he have 3 "mini stages" around the audience that he will jump around to so he can "get closser" to his fans?...

"The Keith Urban Seating chart shows a large stage set-up with a gentle horsehoe shape to it and a center catwalk that will extend approximately 8 rows onto the main floor."

...they most assuredly HAVE read about that also on the nets!
Now, how about orb venturing off into the crowd... and after finishing the song, on the way back up to the stage...orb "spontaniously" gives his guitar to a lucky fansie?

"Favorite moment: When he came to the back of the arena and said "whose got the best seats now?" @
Opening act(s): Sugarland!!! Fabu"

...But truly, orb WOULD NOT continue to do these things on his upcoming US tour...AND yet claim they were NEW to his fansies, would he?

Tara said...

Lets just say Mr. Urban has Evolved over the years in looks and fashion
when he wants to he can still be quite attractive.

So Without You is #4 this week and they are already talking the new single. Keith called in to my local radio station yesterday and said that the new tour is going to have a lot of songs from that rotten Cd and "reworked" older songs- gawd does that mean there will be a Baby Girl reference in all the older better music.
Speaking of better music
Theboot web site had a list of 10 songs that should be released
#3 was The Luxury of Knowing by Keith- if they are smart they will release this and it will be a hit the best song on Defying Gravity's deluxe edition. Not written by Keith but produced and with a very strong vocal by him.

Oh yeah, Jake...didnt consider that! I think they are just now getting into "50's rock n roll in China...so orb is very lucky. Well, as for kidman's recent fashion...clearly she has been recently stung by the comments of her rather "age inappropriate" blunders. The leather gear and the leggings...not a very appealing look all around!

Ha! Yes Tara, definately the orb looks alot better...AND YOUNGER...than he did certainly 10 yrs ago! As to the "reworked" older songs...definately just a desperate PR gimmick...as is that news that this tour will "Debut a New Stage Production." And orb reworking his "baby girl' into the reworked older songs? Everything these days about orb's music is about kidman now...how is it inconcievable he will do just that, right?
So, when I heard last year that orb did not resign to a recording contract with capnash...and they rushed released his cd in 11 months...and his tour would not begin for another 7 months after the cd was released I kind of figured there would be ALOT of "restructuring" for orb. As to this "reworking" of older songs, during promo last year, I read the orb mention that he always wanted to release a "live" album. I really think his next cd WILL be a live album...there are no recording costs...no added costs for session players or his band. It would be a less expensive "album on the cheap" than his rushed released cd!

Hatti said...

Well maclen...I have to say this dress was very nice. I say that begrudgingly!! ((giggles))) I couldn't tell if it was sheer at the bottom but if not it is a dress I would wear. The pockets were great to hide the ugly red claws !! ((giggles)))

Anything that covers alot would be a huge improvement, hattie. Perhaps befitting kidman "circling" a film bio involving elephants recently in the news...perhaps she should have also utilized the "elephant man" hood!

So, this is courtesy of "the last orb fansie in the world"...take a persual over to the "positive" site...is looks pretty lonely over there for the "last orb fansie in the world"...

This is Jake Owen's new single . I love it and my radio station isn't playing it so I'm not sure how many of us have gotten to hear it yet. :)

..so is ONLY orb's radio station not playing it...or are no radio stations playing owen's new single? If the case is no...it cannot be good news for orb's upcoming tour...with basically his main...and ONLY opening act for his
upcoming tour...if owens music cannot get any airplay! Orb better have "big shoulders" to carry his tour...or at least have another pair "grafted" on!

Awe maclen what did elephant man ever do to deserve Pork Chop wearing his image! LOL I think she should have worn a pig face. LOL Sorry Porky Pig couldnt help it! LOL

Oh yeah Jake...tha OTHER opener for orb is named Brandon Green, winner of the Guitar Center contest...HANDPICKED by orb. I also read that orb had already met Green on American Idol. So, basically I figure the contest was simply a ploy for publicity...and the fix was in. Check out this guy now...

Well, actually jake, I was suggesting they remove the Elephant man's hood OFF him and onto kidman! "Elephant Man" Joseph Merrick was actually very intelligent, had grace and the soul of a poet...all things kidman TRIES to portray herself as being...but laughingly fails every time!

So, I noticed this yesterday, the trailer for Happy Feet two"...

http://www.deadline.com/2011/05/hot-trailer-happy-feet-two/

...recall that kidman did a voice for the first movie, Happy Feet, as the voice of the mother of the lead character, voiced by elihah wood. Well, it seems kidman IS NOT credited in being in this sequel at IMDB, as is not fellow aussie hugh jackman. Although I am full aware that kidman could have surely WANTED to be uncredited...as she was for the sandler flick...seeing as the director for this sequel is also fellow aussie George Miller....so as to provide that sought after "surpise" at the premiere of the film in theaters. But personally, I doubt if that happens. At this point in her career, kidman would not want to have to "hide" from promotion when PR ramps up for this movie. She would want to "talk up" her potential connection to a film like this. And also, I figure that also in play here is kidman's bad luck with sequels! In her career, kidman HAS NOT starred in one film that merited a sequel! Her sole involvement in a sequel was for Batman Forever in 1995. But that film was already an establishied francise that began in 1989 in tim burton's Batman. Kidman simply got a part in a "revolving door" part of the female lead. I recall in an interview that kidman was bummed that her film, "bewitched" was such a flop, because she would have loved to do sequels for it. The film Golden COmpass was the first based on the series of novels by Philip Pullman. And pullman himself was hopin that the rest of the series would also make it film. But the film was a flop. When the bazz put out Australia, he had intended it to be the first film in a trilogy of films. But of course, the film was such a joke...the bazz even revealed that he would never make another film with kidman!" Well, basically there's kidman's problem with sequels, none of her films are ever successful enough to merit sequels! And if it is true that kidman IS NOT in "Happy Feet two"...a sequel to an apparently succesful film...you can blame kidman's failure to remain relevant enough to return.

Oh so this was the Sesame Street gig that she paid for? I see well it won't work b/c she is not anything anymore. She is an embarrassment to HW believe me!! And she has dragged him to the same point an embarrassment to Nash!!

So, as we enter June...and with only 15 days till orb's tour begins...this week's sales numbers...

Jason Aldean 32,695 1,237,081

Zac Brown 15,920 935,254

Rascal Flatts 15,892 843,040

Taylor Swift 15,763 3,435,587

Lady Anthebellum 10,734 3,511,445

Kenny Chesney 6,142 823,818

Miranda Lambert 5,667 1,320,050

Sugarland 5,027 993,735

orb ??? ???


And so again, the orb is excluded from the country cd sales list...and as last week, John Rich is the last artist on the list with 2,483 cds sold...so orb is also again at the 2k level. And also recall, R flatts who's cd was released on the same day as orb's is at 15k...Aldrean's cd came out almost 3 weeks BEFORE orb's cd and is selling 32k...That's 4k more than the previous week. So, it's been proven that their can be some significant bumps. Orb is at the 1k "bump"...and as I mentioned...orb's tour begins in only 15 days. Not much "excitement" over orb's cd sales...what's there to show there will much "excitement" over his upcoming tour?
