Hahaha! ;D That is so great! I guess us Grobanites outgrew our thread! ::) ;D I shall miss the old thread. It was good to us. :-* ;)


What a lovely picspam my dear! Thanks for sharing! Several of those pics I've never seen before. ;D *points* Eighth picture down...The crazy lady is wearing the JGF bracelet. ;D We match. Woot. (Yes, we match, us and about a million other Grobanites. ::))

Awww, I shall miss our old home as well!!

i like this new thread. it's like a fresh new start...opens so many doors to pages and pages full of pictures! 8)

so this was the first weekday morning ive had off in a longgg time. so what did i do? why, watch Ellen DeGeneres of course! ;D and to my surprise, Josh was her musical guest! :o such a delightful thing to wake up to. it was so funny too, becuase i totally didn't even know! i was freaking out, my sister laughed at me. haha. he sang February Song and made all his silly little funny faces. ;D i'm pretty sure it was a repeat (though i have never heard of him singing February Song on Ellen before), but it was still wonderful haha.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on August 22, 2007, 03:13:50 pm

Colleen--not a repeat, actually! But he did tape it while he was there with the African Chidlren's Choir, I hear. It hasn't showed in Omaha yet, it comes on at three, and right now it's 2:15, so I still have some time! Yay! :)

Post by: Blue Star on August 22, 2007, 07:43:59 pm

Huh, congrats on the second thread, guys! :D I guess this is just the right time for me to inform you Grobanites that last night I went to his 'Awake' concert in Idaho. It was awesome. ;D We were in the way back though, because even though my dad told us about the impending concert 2 months ago, he only just remembered to buy tickets the day before, so we just moved to the very top back seats of the entire auditorium (just a few rows back from our original seats) for some leg room.

OMG, I had no idea he was so good live... or that he had a real sense of humor, or that he could play drums like nobody's frickin' business! :o That must have been the biggest surprise for me of the night. I thought 'damn, that drummer is blazing it!' before I realized that it was Josh on the drums. How he can be so talented in so many ways blows me away. I had a great time. The only downside was that I could only tell he was really expressionate by the big TV screens, and I wanted to see his face up close in real life. But oh well. He almost came near us when he was walking and singing through the audience.



It's still weird to actually hear him talk. His singing voice is so different from his talking voice. I love it. ;D

Post by: Kate06 on August 23, 2007, 02:16:58 am

WOO HOO!!!! Blue Star!!!!! I am SOOO happy for you! That's great that you got to experience him live! I sat in the last row possible when we went to see Paul McCartney...man, that was a packed show!! :o But yes! I am glad you got to see him live!! :)

Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on August 23, 2007, 07:02:05 am

Kate! Yesterday, we were moving my brother into his dorm at Notre Dame which he shares with two other room mates. Well one was from Omaha. Made me think of you. I was wearing my new JG in NYC t-shirt and the Omaha kid's mother asked me what JG stood for. I told her and she said something like, "Ah. that's what I thought. My daughter is a big fan." and I was like, "Well you know, he is going to be in Omaha very soon." Thus she told me her daughter told her it was sold out. Which made me happy to hear but sad because he daughter sounds like a big fan and cannot attend.

Sorry for that long, unecessary story. Just made me think of a fellow Grobanite I happen to know. ;)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on August 23, 2007, 10:27:48 am

yay, Blue Star! that's so great that you got to go! and who cares what seats you had, at least you were there...Josh's voice reaches the back of the venue with ease. seats don't make that much of a difference in the quality of the night. i should know, my seats sucked (we were in the ones that were practically behind the stage...).

my dad said the same thing. that was the highlight of the night for him (Josh Groban isn't really his style of music. lol!)

Loves you all, girls....I'm back but hopefully was never forgotten!

Post by: Colleen on August 23, 2007, 11:51:23 am

JESS!!!!! i guess that means school is starting up again, huh? good to have you back, hun! i've missed you! :-* ;D

Kate, i just checked joshgroban.com and they did announce Josh's appearance on Ellen. so i guess you're right, it was new. :)
8 days until your concert? :D yay!

this is driving me crazy! still no official announcement about Josh's Christmas album. amazon.com says the shipping date is Oct. 9...that's a considerably soon date and nothing has even been mentioned on Joshgroban.com, no album artwork, nothing. ???

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: LleMellon on August 23, 2007, 12:11:24 pm

ahhh! Josh is doing a christmas album? I'd buy that in a heart beat!

Yea, school is starting up again...I've also been through some pretty tough stuff lately--the end of school last semester was awful, my family is kind of falling apart, and i got so sick i had to go to the doctors and that was just a mess.

But anyways, I'm doing better now and am finally settled in, so things will figure themselves out. And I'm at least still dancing...YAY! And acting and doing theatre...all of the things I love. It makes life worth living.

I love you all! Jess.

Megsie- that's so cool!!! :) Awwww, I have tickets to sell....do you know their name? Because I really need to get rid of these tickets!!! I got better seats from a girl on FOJG, and my dad will be really mad if we don't sell these tickets!


*reels it back in* YAY JOSHY!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on August 23, 2007, 12:40:46 pm

aw, Jess. i'm sorry you had a rough semester. it's good you have an outlet in dance. i'm sure it helped you get through all of that.
yeah, he's doing a Christmas album. it's called "Noel." i posted links to the amazon.com pages in the other thread.

Kate - i'll take them! no, i'm just kidding. i really wish i could, though. lol! i'm still in that post concert depression mode. how long does this usually last? :P

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: LleMellon on August 23, 2007, 02:12:28 pm

We need to come up with a survival kit for post-concert depression...hehehe.

that would be quite entertaining, i think.

If i had money, i'd buy those tix, but i hardly can afford to feed myself at this point, so yea, that will all have to wait. unfortunate.

lol! that would be awesome. mine would include cans of Reddi Whip, bags of Starbucks coffee, popsicles, lifesavers mints, maybe a bar or two of Hershey's milk chocolate, lots of movies to keep my mind off it, and every Josh cd ever. ;)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on August 23, 2007, 02:23:14 pm

Hahaha, that sounds like an awesome survival kit! Mine would include pretty much most everything caramel (or maybe I could just snatch those bottles of caramel sauce from work ;D) esspresso machine and the beans, a bunch of romantic comedies, my iPod, some Kettle chips, carrots/ranh dip and it's probably safe if I stop now! ;D


I just got the mental image of a bunch of Grobies building a sofa cushion fort and living under there with their survival kits until they have been cured of PCD. ;D ;D ;D ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: LleMellon on August 23, 2007, 05:14:48 pm

heheeh I like the idea of having a Grobie hold-out in a couch-cushion fort! It would be amazing.

I think my survival kit would include TONS of music that makes me feel, my dance legwarmers, powdered sugar donuts (because they're the best stuff on earth!!!) chic flick videos, magazines, and the best people I could bring around me in the world--my friends...hehehe, okay, that's too sappy, even for me! hahaha Pass over the hershey's!

My computer is odd and won't bring up the second video at the moment. But, I will see it eventually. :-* Thank you Kate!

Ohhh! Colleen you just made my night! I love this! Ave Maria YAAAAYYYY! ;D I am so excited! I just e-mailed my mom the track list. ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on August 24, 2007, 08:59:42 pm

i know, exciting, right?

ok, so you know that shirt we were talking about a while ago? the one that we were contemplating if he made with stolen Sharpies or not? lol
this one that he wore to the Pittsburgh concert:
[IMG]http://i18.tinypic.com/67yxkba.jpg[/IMG]
someone wrote out what it says on it.

Let's talk about music. Can we do that? Maybe rock, maybe roll. Your music, my music, and their music. Whatever you're hearing, you have to admit it's in your ears ALWAYS and sometimes it's in your soul, sometimes it's punching you in the back bone and makin' it hard for you to breathe. Take a breath - a deep one. I want to talk about MUSIC.

i wanted to put it in my signature, but it's too many characters. boo. still an awesome quote...i so hope he wrote it. it would just make him that little bit more awesome. ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on August 24, 2007, 09:08:43 pm

Aww I love the quote! Thanks for finding that love. :-* It totally sounds like something he'd say, don't you think? Amazing. :-*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: LleMellon on August 24, 2007, 09:40:01 pm

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

I'm going to love that CD...those are all some of the classic songs I absolutely love at XMAS and to hear Josh sing them will be heaven.

And that quote, coming from josh or not, is just amazing. it really is.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on August 24, 2007, 10:29:33 pm

I love how we've already gotten to page two!

AND OH MY BOB! 'Oh Come All Ye Faithful' has ALWAYS been my favorite Christmas song!!! And Ave Maria? Oh just kill me now---that song is just going to make me implode from sheer DELIGHT! I can NOT wait!!


And I do believe he wrote that quote...at least that's what someone told me. It's an amazing quote, I agree. It makes the butterflies in my stomach go all crazy and whatnot. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on August 24, 2007, 10:35:59 pm

Ave Maria. i mean seriously. i think i died a little when i saw that on the playlist. i'm so flipping excited!

and gosh, how sick is that quote? even if he didn't write it, he gets major props for owning a shirt with that on it. :)

Kate - oh my bob? lol!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on August 24, 2007, 10:38:02 pm

I definitely died a little when I saw 'Oh Come All Ye Faithful'.....Josh singing that will probably make me cry. Happy tears...but still. Wow. :) I love this man!


Very true!! I love it....it just really articulates how music really means to me and pretty much everyone else! :) So amazing....

Hahaha.....I don't swear much. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: LleMellon on August 24, 2007, 11:06:53 pm

I agree with all of you. XMAS has always been the best holiday for me...it's one of the only times i ever really feel peace. And i think josh's voice is peace.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Aisling on August 25, 2007, 12:54:10 pm

AVE MARIA!!!! *thud*

Which version, the Schubert or the Bach-Gounod? (I hope it's the B-G.) It doesn't say, and there are no audio samples yet. Drat!

EDIT: Found some great pics worth sharing, as I had never seen them before:


Awwwwww!!!!



I've seen this one before, but it's too sexy NOT to post. :)



This is in the tour program, isn't it? I saw it on the promo for the concert they showed on TV a few days ago.





OK....hahaha, I think that's good for now. :D :D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on August 26, 2007, 07:09:47 pm

ahhh, gorgeous pics, Kate. most of them i have seen before, but there were a few rare beauties snuck in there too. thanks for posting them! :)

well guys, today has been the last official day of summer i will ever have. next year i have to get a job, so you know i'll be working all the time. plus that's the year i'm leaving for college. so with all of that stress, i'm not going to have much of a summer next year either. and all of the following summers after that i have to do internships for a journalism major at the college i'm planning to go to. and after school, it's career searching time, and everyone knows the only job that get a true summer vacation are teachers.
it's been a crazy summer, but i honestly think it's been the best one i've ever had, and it's all because of that Josh concert. as of now, it really was the greatest moment of my life...the only thing that will top it might be the next time he comes to Pittsburgh...or the day of my wedding. lol.
senior year. i am so ready to be done. ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on August 26, 2007, 10:53:24 pm

Argh, how do I keep missing these posts?

Sorry loves for getting so behind. :-\ :-*

I just got home from moving my brother into Notre Dame today.

I too start school tomorrow Colleen. Blah. :-\ But hey, Seniors. ;D I am definitely excited about that. Especially because I get to be the editor in chief of our school paper. I'll get extra stressed out, but this is what I love to do. Does that make any sense? ::)

That picspam is wonderful, Kate! Thanks for sharing. :D

And yes that one pic is from the tour program. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: LleMellon on August 27, 2007, 02:45:48 am

I've been in school a week already! It starts waaaay too early.....two weeks before labor day weekend?!?!?

the pic spam is very nice kate! thank you!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on August 27, 2007, 02:56:42 pm

Well, I hope everyone has a great day of school! I just got back from my classes....first time taking a bu home....interesting, but hey! I made it, hahaha!

Enjoy your senior year girls, it goes by fast! Do you guys have like a field day or something? We have a bunch of random 'fun' days at our school (well, not a bunch... ::) ) and whenever there's a contest, the seniors always win! My senior year, the freshman tried to prove that THEY had won, and maybe they did....but we were the SENIORS!!! ;D ;D I never thought I'd fall into that class supremacy thing....but, whatever!! :)


Glad you all enjoyed the pic spam...next time I post pictures it will be from my concert!!!! THIS FRIDAY!!!! And I totally forgot we didn't have school the following Monday....which isn't as great as the concert itself, but it's definitely an added bonus!!! :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on August 27, 2007, 03:12:18 pm

this Friday! Kate, that is beyond exciting! i'll be anxiously awaiting that picspam on Saturday. :D

i just found out today that we don't have school Monday either. such a wonderful surprise.
i agree, Jess, school does start way too early. i don't know why they can't all just wait until after Labor Day?
lol, i'm not into the whole senior thing. it's just whatever. it's going to be fun in my Foods class though...i'm the only upper classman...everyone else are freshmen...muahahahaa. ;D
well, i already missed a homework assignment. for AP English, we were to do this gigundo packet (along with read 8 books, write 3 papers, and take notes on our entire English book. i don't know who these teachers think they are...) for today, and i completely forgot about it. nothing like starting out on a good note. psh.
and to tie that whole bit of rambling into Josh, i got ready listening to Awake this morning. and when i get my driver's pass approved, i'll be riding with Josh to school every morning...especially when the Christmas season comes around (aka Oct. 9. lol!). ;D

i had a fun little Josh-filled night! first, i went to get my hair cut (and i look freakin' cute, if i do say so myself... ;)), and guess what song is playing overhead? You Are Loved. that's right. then we went to dinner at Red Robin they played February Song. it was noisy so i could barely hear it, but i knew what it was. then we went to the AT&T store to fix my phone (which has Josh as the display picture and Alla Luce Del Sole as the ringtone) where we checked out the iPhones (have you ever played with one of those things? they are sick!! i want one!) and Josh was on the iPod part. so of course i played it and turned it up as loud as could go! :D spreadin' the Josh, that's what i do... ;) yay!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on August 27, 2007, 09:44:26 pm

Aww yay! ;D That's awesome Colleen. :-* You should post some pics on your myspace of your new hair cut! :)



My sister was at Chic Fil A tonight (or however that's spelled) and she called me saying she heard Josh and thought of me. ;D I asked what song it was and she said, "It was something about slipping away..." and I was like, "Oh! February Song! One of my favorites!" ;)

Post by: LleMellon on August 27, 2007, 11:19:51 pm

i actually have to go to the doctors now for this stupid broken toe. i haven't cried over any injury since i was seven, and i just lost it for like an hour...it's driving me literally mad...I've never been in this much constant pain in my life....I've felt horribly gross and sick before, but never like, this throbbing pain that i can't get away from. so it sounds stupid to say that a toe is doing all of this, but yea....even my mum, who normally tells you to just suck it up, agreed i should see the doctor...i neglected it the first time i broke it, which is why I'm probably in a mess now. In the past week and a half, i haven't had an hour's worth of time where it wasn't hurting...so i just finally broke down. I avoid doctors at all costs, and i never cry, and now I'm wanting both, so if that tells you anything about the seriousness of this....I'm REALLY ashamed to have to be bitching about this, because i don't, but yea, it's worn me down to this point. This pain is unreal.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on August 28, 2007, 07:55:22 pm

aw Jess! *hugs* i hate doctors too. i really hope you get things worked out...didn't you have an injury last year too? ouch, broken toe. i've never broken a bone before, but toe sounds like it would hurt more than say a broken wrist...just because you put more pressure and weight on it than other body parts. :-\ you're in my prayers...i hope the stress lightens up a bit. :-*

i had another Joshly-filled day. today i went to the new Target in my area. these new stores have Starbucks in them now..how awesome is that? so i wasn't aware of it, but just as i was leaving i smelled coffee wafting through the air. just on a fluke i decided to buy a cup, and guess what cup i get?

The Way I See It #268

"Music is what I always turn to when I'm feeling a certain way. It's my reason for everything."

-- Josh Groban
Musican. His songs can be heard on Starbucks Hear Music station -- XM Satelite Radio Channel 75

hooray! i washed it out and i'm keeping it. lol! obsessed much? nah... ;)

Ohh Colleen lovely! Yeah I just went to a newly remodeled Target lately. They had Starbucks. I didn't even think about it. ::) Of course I am addicted to Starbucks as it is. My brother's college (Notre Dame) has it's own Starbucks. I'd be there every day searching for a Josh cup. ::)

Jess- I am SO sorry about your toe, and you are perfectly entitled to be upset about it!! I hope everything goes well at the doctors.

Colleen- I keep SEARCHING and SEARCHING for that cup....but no luck yet, that is so awesome you found one! As soon as I find one at work, I think I'm going to take the whole roll, hahahaha. >.> I mean......buy them....of course. o_0


Our new cafe in the school library "proudly brews Starbucks". I went there yesterday on a whim.....I asked for a grande iced non fat vanilla latte....I got a grande hot 2% vanilla latte, with no foam on top...she stopped about an inch below the rim....and the standard is to do it at a "french fry's length" and then put foam on.....but oh well, I wasn't going to complain, as I worry about turning into some of my mean customers.



THREE DAYS!!! I am ALMOST done with the gift.....hopefully I'm able to get it to him. I hope so....and I'll make sure to take lots of pics/video as well!

Thanks for the well wishes girls. It means a lot to me.

Colleen, yep, I broke the same toe three months ago and never did anything about it. It's probably why I'm worse off now, but I'm dealing. I will go to the doctors tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Those cups are SO COOL! I love starbucks to death hehehe...but i can't drink there very much cause it's too expensive! heheheh...and now that I can't have caffeine, that cut out the major reason why i go. I'm a mocha fiend though....hehehe...

I WANT A JOSHY CUP!

P.S. KATE that is going to be so great...i hope you have so much fun at the concert! *squeals*

LADIES WE HAVE COVER ART FOR NOEL!!!!!!

PREPARE THE DROOL BUCKETS!





Ohhhh man, that right there is yummier than a venti caramel frappuccino with an extra shot and extra caramel/whipped cream. ::) ;D ;D ;D

Also, tonight after work, I have to type up my letter (I just finished the main body, now I just have to end it, lol), print off the playlist, put together the rest of the gift, which consists of:

3 CDs
1 heart felt letter, lol, with my cell phone number casually slipped in, hahaha
1 Sheriff's badge (LOL, no idea where I got THAT idea)
1 "singles" box of Cheerios
1 bag of pixie sticks
1 Red Nebraska Huskers shirt (I've never understood football, but Husker Pride is something that every Nebraskan is born withm apparently, hahaha)

Tomorrow after class I am going to the Hilton to help put goodie bags together for the M&G, and I'm sure I'll take lots of pictures there, if I do I'll post them if (if that's allowed by the mods, of course). And then FRIDAY I won't be able to concentrate at ALL in my classes because I'll have a certain doll face on my mind! ;D I think we all know who that is. :) I'll be at the M&G from 4-6. I entered a joke contest to win a chance to meet Josh, so keep your fingers crossed for me! I won't be too bummed if I don't win, there are always more concerts, and heck, I'm only 19! Also, since I just joined in March, I'd feel bad if I won instead of people who have been there for a lot longer than me. :) Anyways, that's the basic itenerary for the following days....can't wait!!!

:o :o :o

I'vee been dying to see this cover art!



And it is AMAZING! Look at those eyes. *faints* ::)

Thank you Kate!



Oh the M&G should be fun! You'd think after 3 concerts I'd find where one of those would be. Eh, but it's hard to get my mom into that kind of thing. ::)

omg, SHUT UP! that is a freaking awesome cover. look how handsome he is! :D ahhhh, it's time for CHRISTMAS!! or at least October. ;D

oh Kate, your next few days sound awesome. mind if i ask why the box of Cheerios? and i completely understand about your "Nebraskan Pride." i despise football, but i still feel a deep loyalty to Pittsburgh (the most awesome city in the world. ;)) and, yes, the Steelers. ahhaha. alright, i'm rambling now...whatever. lol. well i hope you have an awesome next few days. be sure to check in before you leave for the concert...and maybe tomorrow too? lol!

yep, you guessed it, i had another Josh-filled day. this week, as crappy as it is with school starting and my locker already being broken, is really turning out to be pretty awesome. i wore my tour t-shirt today. i got a fair bit of compliments, of course from the people i already knew were fans, a few snide remarks, to which i stuck out my tongue ;D, and a few "who is he?"s too, which were fun to answer with "only my favorite person in the entire world!" lol. fun.

Kate, that sounds fantastic. *is jealous* Good luck on the win-a-josh contest! hehehehehehe

I don't know how I'm going to make it through to rest of today and tomorrow morning. I have my hour and fifteen minutes government class at one today, and then I'm taking the bus home, getting some stuff put together, then going to the hotel to help set up. I'll definitely take some pics.

Then tomorrow I have to go to my World Civ class and I have a quiz in my French class and I'm not going to be able to sit still at all. Whenever I'm anxious and I'm sitting down, my leg starts to shake up and down, it's really noticeable and it kind of scares people, hahahaha. But wow.....it's here. It's finally here!

Colleen- I read somwhere on FOJG that he loves Cheerios, hahaha, so that's where that came from.

I will write up a formal review of the concert, of course, and post that here with the pictures......Gosh. I can't wait for tomorrow but I'll be sad when it's over. It's so conflicting!

OK.....relax....deeeeeeep breaths! See you girls either late tonight or late Friday night/late Saturday morning! ;D

I wore my "JC in NYC" t-shirt today. I got some compliments. Oh and I wore my Josh zip up hoodie. :) I was called obsessed and all the usual remarks. And some asked. So I am always pleased to inform about Josh. ::)

Aw Josh loves Cheerios? Me too. ;D

Post by: Kate06 on August 30, 2007, 04:28:34 pm

I am so excited!! I just got done taking a shower and eating lunch and I'm waiting for someone to pick me up so we can go down to the Hilton Hotel and get ready for the M&G.


I'm sorry people called you obsessed. Just tell them: Not obsessed, I'm just passionate about great music.
SO MNEH (this is optional, hahahha)


Hahaha, he said in an interview he had an addiction to Cheerios in his youth. "It became a bit of a problem." Hahahah! Cutie!

Post by: Kate06 on August 31, 2007, 11:03:08 am

OK you guys.....I only have a short time before I have to start getting ready, but I just....wow. I am so wonderfully overwhelmed. I (ALMOST) had so much fun last night I forgot there was a concert! Me and two other friends from FOJG met Tariq in the Old Market in Omaha....well, we saw him driving, pulled a U-Turn in the middle of traffic, found a parking spot, and casually started strolling towards him, and I swear, it was like we've known each other for years the way we greeted him, and he us! Everyone was (well, excpet me, I was like :o) like, "OH HI! HOW ARE YOU!?"

Then he started reading t-shirts, but I was just wearing a t-shirt from field day my sophomore year in high school, so it wasn't like about Josh or anything. I didn't say anything to him, but he still gave me a big HUG!!! I was like, "You sweet man!!"

Then later, after a whirlwind of events with Grobies Going Wild (;D), we ran into Lucia, Vanessa, Tim, and Tariq at the bar in the Hilton. I didn't officially meet Lucia or Vanessa, but I did get pictures. I explained my tshirt to Tariq ('Smores on the front and on the back it has our names and says 'Stuck Together til 2006') and he kept saying how "adorable" it was!!! ;D And then I met Tim and he asked me what my name was and I said, "Kate," and he's like, "I LOVE that name!"

"Thanks!!! *melt*"

And then after the picture HE said he liked my shirt and that....get this....IT WAS A GOOD COLOR FOR ME! CAN I JUST DIE RIGHT NOW (well, maybe AFTER the concert is a good time for that)?

AND THEN WE SAW SWEENEY!!!!! ;D ;D ;D ;D At 2 am going for a walk with Sam, ahahahaha! He is just TOO cute! My Lord I wanted to go play with him! I think he saw us from afar and seemed to be itching to come over and play with us!

OK, I need to work on uploading pics now, I couldn't find the cord for my camera last night so I need to find that. I got home at 3 last night, we weren't with the band the whole night, we left them alone after a while so that we wouldn't over stay our welcome, and everyone was saying how GREAT Grobies we were, so that makes me wonder how crazy the other ones get!

I didn't go to school, and I feel bad, but like I said, I got home at three and my alarm went off at six and I kept hitting the snooze and when my dad came in he was like, "Going to school?"

"I don't think so"

"OK, see ya later."

Oh man....I'm going to need a bunch of esspresso shots to keep me AWAKE tonight!

Front row ticket!? Someone is smiling down on you today! ;D

I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU! Like this is a huge deal!

The only thing I can say is that at my 2nd show I saw Sweeny waiting for his daddy back stage the last few songs. ;D

lol. i can't even believe she got front row tickets. that is beyond sick. i hope she takes pictures. ;)

i knowwww. now i can more or less relive my concert night over and over again too.

you know, i still don't have the "In Concert" dvd...i can't find it anywhere! :-\ i'll just have to order it online or something.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2

I know right!? She is so incredibly blessed! :D She had better take pictures!!

Yes, exactly! Who doesn't want to relive that night(s)? I know I do!


And you know, it's been ages since I've watched the "In Concert" DVD. My mom and I always listen to the CD in her car though. As of now, that is the only Josh CD she has in there. ::) But you really need to get that DVD my dear! :-*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on August 31, 2007, 06:29:21 pm

i've watched it before. a friend of mine let me borrow it about a week before my concert. it was really great...kind of weird because it was all songs from the first cd. i got both cds at the same time (Christmas nearly 3 years ago) so i wasn't used to only listening to one cd. and i didn't like the extras as much as the Live at the Greek extras, but they were still fun. so yeah, i think it's something worth owning...make my collection complete, ya know? ;)

i wonder if there will be extras on the Awake tour dvd? ;)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on August 31, 2007, 06:32:04 pm

which is always the best part anyway.

i mean...what? :-X the music is the best part, silly! but i love watching Josh act all goofy. ;D

i still find it hilarious that there has been absolutely no mention about Josh's Christmas cd on joshgroban.com. you think with a tracklist, album artwork, and thousands of pre-orders on amazon and Barnes and Noble, they would at least mention something about it. a little "hey, Josh is making a Christmas album. yippy!" would even suffice. ;)

LOL! i guess i spoke too soon.

Oh I totally just got kicked off when I went to post what I had...*shakes fist*
Anyways....you girls are so funny! ;D
Megsie-- you are so right when you said someone was smiling down on my yesterday. As soon as I was sure I had the tickets and was holding them in my hand, I started sobbing.....it finally felt like something went right for me. It's been a rough past couple of years for me, for personal reasons, but....wow! It was through the grace of God that I was able to sit in the front row....I was certainly guarded by my guardian angels last night, and I will always be grateful.

Here are some pics from when I went up to the stage for NWIA:

Sorry they're big, I haven't gotten around to resizing them yet.

The one where he's holding the sweater up....when he first sat down, they started playing the Mr. Roger's Theme song and two crew members brought out a sweater and a pair of tennis shoes. It was hilarious.



AND HE FREAKING WALKED RIGHT PAST ME during IHE!!! HE TOUCHED MY HAND!!! I held it out and he touched it softly!!! Oh my gosh, his hand was so soft....manly soft.....BUT SO SOFT!!!! And there were definitely two times he looked right at me.

The first was when he was talking about him singing romantic songs and I went "WHOOOOOOO!" and twirled my light stick and he laughed and looked at me and said, "Hahaha, yeah, I know you like those songs!"

And then when he was singing Mai (I think!), he was walking over by my side of the stage and I waved at him and he pointed right back at me and smiled!!! Hahahaha....I'm sure he was laughing at/scared by my 'Grobanites Gone Wild!' tshirt, that is if he saw it under my hair! ;D

That's it for now...I need to go type up my formal review now.

Regarding my gift....when I tried to take it in, this lady said the West Center gives it directly to him, so I really hope she wasn't just saying that just so I wouldn't take it in, especially since I might have slipped my phone number in there, under one of the CDs I made him. :)

OK....I'm outtie!

I love you girl and I couldn't be happier for you! ;D You having such a great couple of days has really made me so happy! ;D The pictures are fantastic! Beautiful! And I had no doubts his hands would be so manly soft! Haha! YAY! ;D

Post by: Kate06 on September 03, 2007, 12:11:53 pm

Here are some more pics from the BEST NIGHT(s) OF MY LIFE!

Tim & I:


Tariq & I:


Angelique came to our M&G.....when she first came she was giving EVERYONE hugs, it was so sweet of her to hug me and whoever she could, even when she was talking...she's just a sweet lady!


Pearls:


YOU ARE LOVED, JOSH!!!

^^^He is SUCH a rockstar!!! He came out from the stage and he was just SMILING and POINTING to us....and then he sort of picked up the mic and jumped onto the smaller platform....HE WAS ROCKIN IT!!!!







LUCIA! She looked absolutely GORGEOUS! Of course she did!!!


YOU GO TARIQ!!




L'Ultima Notte, I believe:




Meeting Tariq for the first time:


I consider these ladies to be a part of my family....they made me an honorary Grobanites Gone Wild.....they are the SWEETEST!!! I love them. :)


I LOVE this picture, this is when we were all the stage after NWIA. We stayed up for Machine and I think another song, but definitely for the encores....Canto, YRMU, and AWAKE!!! We were all swaying and crying together....so bittersweet, but I think it really captures the essence of the "Grobanites"




The reason I believe that picture up there captures the true essence of Grobies, is because Josh has been having some stalker problems lately, and probably the reason he was so elusive and never in sight is because his security people where making sure his stalked didn't find him.....the arena security even had a list of names of people to not let in, and even wouldn't let one in based on a photo they had.

I was talking to one of my GrobiesGoneWild's about it, and we were saying how sad it is that while his band can go anywhere they want, they'll still get noticed by fans and what not....but they can still go....Josh has no choice if he's being stalked. We were saying how lonely it must be....how cooped up he must feel....there's only so much you can do when you're by yourself, and that made us all really sad for Josh, and upset with the people for doing that to him. We didn't want to bother the band for too long, so we left alone after a while, but stilll....

Also, Lucia had been talking to one of the ladies about how torn Josh feels. He wants to be loyal to his fans and for them to like his music but he also wants to grow as a musician. And apparently there are a bunch of people who don't want him playing Machine during the concert because they think it's too.....I dunno, "not his style" I guess.

That's HORRIBLE!! His voice is so beautiful and I can't fathom why you would want him to NOT sing. I love "Machine"...I know hw wrote it for people who know what it's like to be bullied.....so many people are going to be able to identify with that song (myself included...I LOVE this song!) because of experiences like bullying. That's what powerful music DOES.....it makes you feel connected to people you don't even know, which, in today's world, is SUCH a beautiful thing that it should not be suppressed! But you know what I think? I think the people who don't like 'Machine' are the people who ARE the bullies....and so they can't appreciate the true poetry and beauty of these lyrics...


OK, that's my rant. Still working on perfecting my review, I shall have that up as soon as I can.

Post by: Colleen on September 03, 2007, 12:13:17 pm

oh Kate, you were soooooo close! :o ;D you must've been freaking out...i know i would've been. he looks like he's having a bit of a bad hair day, lol! oh well, he still looks fantastic. and that little girl is so cute!

ohhh, i so hope he got your gift! i think those people are pretty reliable...i've read reports of fans giving gifts to personel like the West Center people and Josh has gotten it. ;)

you got to touch his hand! *bounces* that is awesome. my friend's mom got to shake his hand during In Her Eyes...we were both so jealous lol. that is so awesome...soft hands. yay! lol

i like his blue shirt. that little design on his left side is really cute. i love his fashion sense. at the Pittsburgh show, he had this gorgeous navy blue blazer on that had this dark tan design on the back. i don't know where he gets his clothes, but they are awesome. :)

Kate, i'm so happy you had such a great time. maybe the next Josh concert we all go to, we'll be together. :D

oh god! poor Josh. these are the types of things that truly tick me off. i mean, you're a fan of the music, i'm a fan of the music, there are million upon millions of people out there who are fans of the music and we want him to sing as much as he possibly can or wants to. he's an artist, and it's his artistic lisence to create and sing whatever type of music his heart desires. to think that there are people out there scolding Josh for his talent really makes me mad...and the fact that Josh is such a sweetheart that he's really considering these people's hurtful words just breaks my heart. Josh really is the sweetest person in the world and the fact that he would consider sacrificing his growth as a musician is beyond anything i have ever heard. how horrible. how absolutely horrible.

i just hope he knows there are more people out there who love and support him than those who selfish jerks and quite obviously do not.

oh Kate, you were soooooo close! :o ;D you must've been freaking out...i know i would've been. he looks like he's having a bit of a bad hair day, lol! oh well, he still looks fantastic. and that little girl is so cute!

ohhh, i so hope he got your gift! i think those people are pretty reliable...i've read reports of fans giving gifts to personel like the West Center people and Josh has gotten it. ;)

you got to touch his hand! *bounces* that is awesome. my friend's mom got to shake his hand during In Her Eyes...we were both so jealous lol. that is so awesome...soft hands. yay! lol

i like his blue shirt. that little design on his left side is really cute. i love his fashion sense. at the Pittsburgh show, he had this gorgeous navy blue blazer on that had this dark tan design on the back. i don't know where he gets his clothes, but they are awesome. :)

Kate, i'm so happy you had such a great time. maybe the next Josh concert we all go to, we'll be together. :D


Quote:
Also, Lucia had been talking to one of the ladies about how torn Josh feels. He wants to be loyal to his fans and for them to like his music but he also wants to grow as a musician. And apparently there are a bunch of people who don't want him playing Machine during the concert because they think it's too.....I dunno, "not his style" I guess.

oh god! poor Josh. these are the types of things that truly tick me off. i mean, you're a fan of the music, i'm a fan of the music, there are million upon millions of people out there who are fans of the music and we want him to sing as much as he possibly can or wants to. he's an artist, and it's his artistic lisence to create and sing whatever type of music his heart desires. to think that there are people out there scolding Josh for his talent really makes me mad...and the fact that Josh is such a sweetheart that he's really considering these people's hurtful words just breaks my heart. Josh really is the sweetest person in the world and the fact that he would consider sacrificing his growth as a musician is beyond anything i have ever heard. how horrible. how absolutely horrible.

i just hope he knows there are more people out there who love and support him than those who selfish jerks and quite obviously do not.
[/quote]

Colleen, I too adore his fashion sense! It's so sexy and incredibly handsome! :) I think some of his clothes come from Banana Republic. A long time ago I saw a little clip, a behind the scenes sort fo thing and I can't help but to remember that the shoes he was wearing were from there. There was a comment made of a tag showing or something. I'm pretty certain this isn't my imagination haha. But Banana Republic have very similar clothes to what Joshy wears so it would make sense to me. :)

I personally admire and really love how he is expanding his music. 'Machine' is brilliant! It carries a jazzy/classical/modern vibe to it. I couldn't imagine anyone but Josh performing this so well with his voice. :-*

welcome to my life. it's been almost a month (tomorrow) and the PCD hasn't let up one little bit. :'(


well, the US Awake Tour is officially over. last night was the Charlotte concert, so now all that's left is the over-seas portion. crazy. whatever happened to 2 years? lol.

There's actually a big discussion on the boards right now about the 3rd leg. Josh does has a lot on his plate....with Australia and then the Christmas album, and he is also working on a new album and he starts up with Chess in May. But he has said he loves to tour, so we can only pray....I'm sure that it will happen, maybe not as soon as we would like, but I'm sure it will happen eventually.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 03, 2007, 03:40:28 pm

exactly. i think it's going to be a long while before he goes on tour again.
i've heard a rumor, now granted it's very far fetched, that the new album will be out as soon as next year. so, should by some random chance that be true, maybe we'll get a tour for that.

how long is he supposed to be doing Chess? a month or so? i don't really know how those kind of things work haha.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 03, 2007, 05:01:49 pm

Ah PCD, I know it ALL too well. :-\

Chess? Bleh, either I am having a blonde moment or I am clueless. :-X

Yeah I think we will be waitng on more touring or another tour itself for awhile. Like you said, he's got a lot on his plate right now. He's definitely a busy, busy man.

I wanted to be at Charlotte so badly! If you girls happen to run across any news or pictures from Charlotte could you post them? :-*

Megsie- Chess is the musical Josh is/was in. :) I've never seen it, but I've heard/seen a few clips, and, naturally, he is amazing.

Here are a few pics from Charlotte-





Hahaha, OK....I might cry if I see anymore, so I'll stop there.

:'(

EDIT: Great, I made an "uh oh" and posted Denver pics...wake up, little Susie!! I mean...Kate. ;D ::)

HERE are some Charlotte pics (if I don't mess this up again):






^^YOU FREAKING ROCKSTAR!! Ladies, promise me we'll give Josh his very own mosh pit when we go see him!!

you better believe it. i had my own little dance party at my concert during Machine...everyone refused to join in. party poopers. ;) :D

my friends are so silly. we went through my belongings (haha, that's such a grandma word...) today to prove how obsessed with Josh i am. i must say, i'm beginning to think they have a point. lol! it was silly though.
anyways...
my friend gets this Pittsburgh magazine called "Whirl" and they did a spotlight on Josh for the month of August because of his concert at Mellon Arena, which she so generously gave to me :-*. it's a really cute article about his roots in Carnegie Mellon (which i have an insane story about! don't let me forget to tell you guys...). it actually had this introductory story about Josh that i didn't know. i'll have to see if i can find it online, and if not, i'll just type it up. :D
so sit tight while i go search...

Mosh pit, you aren't kidding! We're going to be the originators of the Grobanite Mosh Pit! ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 04, 2007, 06:51:53 pm

ok, the Whirl website is really retarded and they don't keep past articles on their page. so i'll type up the first few paragraphs (the article is really rather long...maybe i'll type up the rest later...i don't think my fingers can handle it right now. ;))

*deep breath* ok, here we go:

[quote] The stage is vast and taunting with its echo. The wood gives awa, soft, under each step. The walls wait a second and then cough their reminder back. This is it. The Philip Chosky Theatre in the Purnell Center at Carnegie Mellon University. The stage that cradled Ted Danson, Rob Marshall, Patrick Wilson, Cherry Jones, Sutton Foster, Holly Hunter. The stage that challenged them, too. Possibly punished. The walk, alone, each echoing foot in front of the other, tells this story of truth, of courage, of pride, while the stage signals its gravity, its purpose, its strength. The talent that has crossed the stage has gone on to win Academy Awards, Tony Awards, the eys of the nation on a city, a school, in Sothwestern Pennsylvania. This is Carnegie Mellon. This stage is reserved for the very best.
In the fall of 1999, it is Josh Groban taking the walk, his last ever on the Carnegie Mellon stage. The boy with the baritone voice and floppy, curly hair has to perform for a voice jury at the end of his first and last semester at the top-ranking musical theater school in the country. A score of his professors watch, wait. In the center, his steps silence. A second later, the walls do, too. He parts his lips and sings. "Maria...Maria...They call the wind Maria..."
And the stage is swelling with him, with song. With a voice, full and whole. His eyebrows rise with the cool release of one long, high, perfect note. His jury holds a breath inside of them, the involuntary reaction to savoring a single, perfect second. And then the music stops, cuts out and cuts him off like a guillotine. He chokes on the next verse, coming up his throat. There is silence again. The stage grows more vast.
His performing eyes send a soft panic to the accompanist. His song gurgles inside of him. The jury stirs. The seconds start to pile up, enough for a few dozen echoed answers. Then, someone speaks.
"Josh, did you bring your music?" It is Claudia Benack, his voice instructor, the woman who coached the notes out of him for the last four months. His voice is accustomed to hers, obeys it. The singer blushes. Hot under the lights, alone on the merciless stage, he looks to his accompanist again. The sheet musicn isn't there, the pages that would have carried him through the most beautiful aria and off of the stage again. It is Groban's responsibility to have brought it. He hasn't.
"We're done here, Josh," Benack says, unforgiving. Groban starts his walk again. His steps speak defeat. The stage speaks back.
"We were so stunned," Benack says about the jury. She knew his voice. She had trained it. But she couldn't show favoritism, ignore an oversight. The stage wouldn't allow it. She had to dismiss him. In his walking off, she remembers their first meeting.
"We start the week before Labor Day, but I didn't see him that week," she says. "I set up to work with him on the holiday. I said I was going to meet him at a certain time outside of the Purnell Center. I arrived, and the door was locked. And I didn't know where he was. I turned, and he was sitting on a bench, waiting for me. Security came and let us in. It's a silly story; I remember it because it was Josh."
She started Groban the way she started all of her freshmen: with breathin exercises and a classical repertoire of a 24 Italian art songs and arias. "He had a beautiful, natural sound," Benack says. "He was a baritone, but his range was much larger. I remember thinking, 'My gosh, what a beautiful, round, full sound.'"
Her awe is similar to that of Cary Kline. The studio Singing Voice teacher is one of a team of instructors who audtition incoming freshman. They traveled the country in February and listened to 750 hopeful voices, all vying to get a shot at the school churning out unmatched talent, honing the perfect performers. Groban was one of 12 to be accepted.
"I remember Josh having this beautiful voice," Kline says. "But there was a maturity to his. Here was this boy that God had gifted with theis instrument. It was really unique. I pushed for him to come in."
It was around the same time that the singer was being tutored by award-winning composer, producer David Foster. . .
[article talks about singing duet with Celine Dion, Rosie O'Donnell, and inauguration of governer of Calif.]
. . .A few months later, he got the call he was really looking forward to: an acceptance to Carnegie Mellon. "The whole experience was unreal," Josh says. "I was thrilled to be singing for David, but also knew that Carnegie Mellon was a great opportunity."
[then the article goes on to talk about how Josh had to "double major" in singning and acting, with a bit of dance thrown in there too (wonder how those worked out for him, huh? lol!)]
[/quote]

there's a whole lot more that basically praises Josh for everything he's ever done. it is a wonderful review of Josh as a person and performer, as opposed to just a review of his cd.


[quote]Josh's audition to attend Carnegie Mellon University was in Los Angeles on February 8th, 1999. He sang songs from "Closer Than Ever" and "Oklahoma!" Here are the notes his future professors took:

"Really unique instrument: Excellent rich tones with 'ping'; but has a very natural timbre - sounds mature and trained. Very sincere and honest delivery. Has no veneer. A real surprise vocally, if a bit average in physical appearance - unexpected talent here! An 8+ on a scale of 0 to 9."
--Gary Kline, Studie Singing Voice teacher

"Clear grasp of language. A nice ease, with vocal richness. He thinks and finds involvement. Skilled and genuine."
--Tony McKay, Professor of Acting

"Very smart delivery. Plays with variety, addressing imagery with specific ways. Clear focus - natural talent. A "taker," I'd say.
--Don Wadsworth, Professor of Voice and Speech[/quote]

hooray Josh! Pittsburgh loves you! :-*


EDIT
ha! i nearly forgot! my story!
so one of my friend's brothers works at Carnegie Mellon University, and has for many many years. he used to let a select few of us in for a yearly tour of the campus, to you know see what's been updated and stuff. i remember that we used to spend a lot of time in the theater departments to watch the performances the students would be putting on.
what if i saw Josh there?
also, we would sometimes get to meet some of the students...ask them questions about college life and whatnot (sure, i was only 9 and my sister was only 12...it was more my parents that did the asking).
what if a met Josh? what if i saw him before he was "Josh Groban, singing sensation"?
what if...? ahhhh! ;)
more than likely not, but still. there's that slight glimmer of possibility. :D

OK *sits self down*, Kate. You gotta get your head out of the clouds!!!

*sigh* Seriously....I've got a freaking CRUSH on Josh....and there are seriously three/four different parts of me that are drying me crazy. There's a part of me that is so self-conscious of myself that if I ever meet Josh.....well, I'm sure you can figure out the rest.
Then there's a part of me that is like, "Well....what if?" And that's giving me so much false hope.
There's also a part of me that is the rational side, saying, "Kate, there's someone out there for you, and even if it's not Josh---you'll be happy together."
And there's also another part of me that just wants to meet him so much....and for him to like me.

you have no idea how comforting it is to hear that i'm not the only one thinking these insane thoughts. i'll be sitting there in study hall day dreaming away, only to be smacked in the face by reality with thoughts such as "i'm a raving lunatic." i almost hate myself for having such a crush on a celebrity...i've always been so anti-fangirl, but yet here i am. i have Grobanitis just as bad as all the others. ::)
right now, i think it's just adrenaline that hasn't worn off. a Josh concert is such a thrilling experience...a high that doesn't relent for months. and i'm sure the new Christmas album soon and the Awake dvd after that, so close together, will not help.
it's a good high. a happy high, and i'll be the first to admit that happiness is hard to come by. is it a healthy high? well, that's for the therapists to decide. ;)

Silver lining would probably be....that even if I never meet Josh, and I'm sure it will never be anymore than my crush on him....I will always have these special friends that I share a common ground with. None of my other friends get it....they really don't. They all think it's just some regular old guy who can sing. But it's so much more than that....he's brought so much hope, joy, laughter, tears, and love into my life that it's gone beyond "just some guy who can sing". He's a genuinely caring, sensitive, wonderful human being, and I can only hope I can find someone as great as he is. :)

Ladies, today is a sad day indeed.

Luciano Pavarotti died today. A brilliant opera singer. It is so sad although I keep telling myself he is in a much better place now. :) So just keep him in your thoughts and prayers if you will ladies. The world has lost one of the greatest voices known to man. :'(

Jess- I hope you're able to get closer the next time you see Josh, and that its very soon....it's a very memorable experience!!


So....one of our 7 kittens that were born about a month ago was found last night lying on the floor, very near death. Turns out her brothers/sisters had been pushing her out when it was feeding time, but her mom did not feed her when they were all gone, so she is very malnourished, hence why she was so close to death last night....my mom, sister, and I have been nursing her back, keeping her warm and feeding her evaporated milk....I woke up at 5:30 this morning to watch her....not that I could sleep anyways, as I kept waking up and looking over and making sure she was alright....she's sitting right next to me, and I'm trying to get her to take the milk everytime she opens her mouth..... :'( :'( Poor baby....I really hope she's alright....maybe I'll turn on Josh and she'll start to feel better. :-\

i had to part with my Awake cd today. it was for a great reason, though. my friend used to always make fun of me for liking Josh, but she went on my myspace and heard "Machine" and decided he wasn't so bad. she started listening to his myspace music while working on homework and asked me today to borrow his cd for the weekend to copy it to her computer. the funny part is i had it at that exact moment in my purse! ;D knew it would come in handy.
so hooray! :)

and an update:
[quote]Hello Everyone,

Kate I really hope your kitty is alright too! Poor little thing. :-\

EDIT:

Oh and Kate, thanks for posting on the thread. Means a lot. :-*


EDIT #2:

Gah I am in SUCH a Joshy mood! I'm currently sporting my older Joshy hoodie over my custom-made Josh Concert #3 t-shirt. Oh and let's not forget the JGF bracelet. ::) So I love my hero. Very, very much. ::)


So, here's what Joshy has been up to lately....

[IMG]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v95/orlislove/USO_001v.jpg[/IMG]
A bit of Tennis at the US Open. ;D He looks either very interested and into it or rather confused! Hehe! Oh Joshy, what shall we do with you? ;D :-*



Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 07, 2007, 11:07:58 pm

lol Megs. i was just about to come in here and post that picture. personally, i think he looks bored. it's ok Josh, i don't get it either. ;D

he was also at this fashion thing, but i just got back from a home football game and i need a shower...i'll post pictures tomorrow maybe. oh, maybe not. our band has practice from noon-3 then we're leaving for a show at 4...and shows usually go until 11:00ish. soooo i guess you'll have to wait until Sunday unless someone else posts pictures first.

alright, i'm going to get a shower, put on my "With You" cd and fall asleep while listening to Josh. goodnight. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 07, 2007, 11:12:47 pm

Haha great Grobanite minds think alike, Colleen! ;)

Oh and bored is another good adjective. ;D

Good luck at the show! Go band! ;D

That sounds like a lovely way to end the day. I may just do the same. Goodnight, Colleen! :-*

Post by: Kate06 on September 08, 2007, 05:29:15 am

Thanks for posting that picture! :) Heehee, he does look a bit tired. :) I know he likes tennis though, he said it in an interview once.....I like tennis too, but, honestly sometimes those matches can be prettyyyyyyyyyyyyyy snore-worthy. ;D


So....I found two pictures that just melt my heart......*sighs* This man.....love him!! :D :D

[IMG]http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a6/KateontheGate/joshandpopejohnpaulii.jpg[/IMG]
Josh.....and Pope John Paul II......utterly amazing.....look at Josh's face...so serene....and the way he's hold the Pope's hand with both of his? Gosh, this man is an angel!

[IMG]http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a6/KateontheGate/IMG_3807_Josh_awake_hold_bk_tears_C.jpg[/IMG]
OK, because Photo[crap]bucket resized this pciture, it sort of loses its heart melting effect. But it's an extremely big picture.....and if you look closely you can see there's a tear mark right by his right eye......

WHAT A FREAKING SWEETHEART!!!!!! :-* :-*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 08, 2007, 09:48:56 am

Kate that picture with Josh and Pope John Paul II is one of my all time favorites! That picture is in the 2005 concert program. ;D He is an angel. This picture proves it. :-*

And I love the second pic as well! Aww! Joshy! So beautiful. ::)

Post by: Colleen on September 08, 2007, 10:10:03 am

Kate, that pope picture is really cute. i don't follow the pope, seeing as i'm not catholic, but it is still really sweet. :)

might i suggest imageshack.us for the picture that was resized? when using imageshack, be sure the "resize" box is not checked, and then post the code for a thumbnail so the picture isn't gigundo on the page. i really want to see that picture as the size it should be. tear? awww! :( :-*

Post by: Kate06 on September 08, 2007, 03:15:28 pm

Megsie---you have Rockstar Joshy in your icon...that makes you a Rockstar Grobie ;D ;D

Colleen--*hits self on head* Why did I think you were for some reason? I mean, that's fine, hahahaha, I just thought you were for some reason.....but I think Josh is Episcopalian/Angelican....and I have no idea what that means, ahaha. I did at one point but I think it's all *poof* now! :) ::) ::)

OK, let's try the tear pictre again....

http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a6/KateontheGate/IMG_3807_Josh_awake_hold_bk_tear-1.jpg

Still not as big as the original, tried imageshack....but, it was all weird and what not. :o

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 08, 2007, 03:26:20 pm

Haha oh Rockstar Grobie! ;D Thank you my dear.

Kate, if my memory serves me well, Episcopalian/Angelican is similar to Catholicism. :)

It's okay about the tear pic, I caught a glimpse of it. :-*

So I went to Wal Mart today and I have lost the first Joshy album SO I bought it again. I felt like a new Grobie all over again. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: LleMellon on September 08, 2007, 03:48:37 pm

you lost your album? EEEEEEK!!!! It's good that you got it replaced....I love how i come in here and never have any joshy things to post. lol....am always way too busy. but i love hearing everything from you girls!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 08, 2007, 03:53:09 pm

Megsie---that's what I thought...I remember reading somewhere its very similar to Catholicism....

I've lost CDs before, too....not Josh, and hopefully that never happens, although I've come close.....WHOA, I almost tyed 'Closer', which is coincidentally the CD I was thinking about, as I've almost lost THAT one many times!! :o Crazy....or just a coinkydink! ::)

I never got his debut album....when I first became interested in his music I got 'Closer'...but that's all. I had a few of his songs off that album, but once I started getting into him more and more, I bought it off iTunes, so I don't have the hard copy.... :-\ Although I kind of wish I did...

I ordered FOUR copies of Noel....getting my Christmas shopping done early!!!! ;D I might keep one for myself, but I really want the special edition....eh, why the heck not?? ;D I'll give the 4th one to my mom or someone....maybe if I do Secret Santa this year I can use that, ahahaha.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: LleMellon on September 08, 2007, 04:32:32 pm

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 08, 2007, 10:55:08 pm

Episcopalian is a Protestant religion, but is very similar to Catholicism in its structure.

lol Kate. nope, i'm not Catholic. i'm Pentecostal. it's very similar to Baptiste...the only difference i know of is that we believe in speaking in tongues.

i would have a heart attack if i ever lost any of my cds. i swear my music is the only thing that keeps me alive.

lol Jess. we still love you! :-*

geez Kate! that's an awesome idea, giving Josh's cd as a Christmas present. i might just steal that idea...my friends don't have nearly enough Josh in their lives. ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 09, 2007, 05:07:38 am

Hahaha, Colleen---totally agree, music has to be playing all the time for me....sometimes people in my family will move my iPod or I can't remember where I put it and I'll ask my mom and she'll be like, "Oh, your precious iPod....it's right over____"

YOU'RE DARN TOOTIN ITS PRECIOUS.
Well....I mean, it's not like I worship it or anything.... ::) But one of my friends said it beautifully when she said, "When music is your catharsis you treat your iPod like a sacred object."

Jess- awwww, you're so sweet! Thanks, hun! :)

Hahahaha, Colleen, go right ahead....because I actually took the idea from most of the people on FOJG. We're trying to get Noel to go Platinum, so they're encouraging everyone to buy more than one copy....and since it seems I'll be getting 5 copies now (4 regular editions for presents and the special edition for myself), it might just happen, especially with all the people on FOJG......by the way Megsie, did you ever get your membership to work??

Alrighty.....I am up at 4am.....stupid work. *goes to get iPod* Have a nice day, everyone!! :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 09, 2007, 10:46:06 am

Kate, you totally reminded me of Josh when you said "coinkydink"....off of the Live at the Greek DVD maybe? Or maybe I am losing my mind. ::) It's quite possible.

Hey, music is one of th emost important things in my life. Especially Josh's music. I can't tell you how many times classical music has helped to pull me through some of hte hardest times in my life. :)

Woo! That's a good idea Kate. Spreading the Joshy love around the holiday season!

Yes, Josh is definitely not afraid to show his emotions. Which is great. Hm. Celebrity. I suppose he is a celeb isn't he?

Am I the only Grobie who finds that strikingly odd to see him as a celebrity?

Once again, I am probably losing it. 8)

Yes, I know that he is infact a "celebrity" but he doesn't seem to be the "typical" celeb, you know? It's hard to explain. As incredibly popular as he is, he just seems to be so down to earth.

MEGSIE WE HAVE THE SAME BRAIN I SWEAR (You too, Colleen, HAHAHA!)

I have ALWAYS felt weird calling Josh a celeb. I'm always like, "My favorite celeb....star....famous person.....guy....." He's SOOO much more than all that...he's just THAT amazing!!! ;D

That's so funny!!! Josh and I must share a brain as well, as I've always said that since before I can remember!!! Ahhh, just the thought of me sharing the same thoughts/words as the Josh man gives me butterflies........hahaha, I'm a dork!

Megsie---I totally understand with the music saving the life deal....totally. My favorite classical song has always been Beethoven's 9th....so beautiful, and such a wonderful message. I like classical, but I must admit I am not really an expert... :-\ Although I do agree with you about the power and beauty it has to offer.....:)


*wipes brow* WHEW!!! That was a lot...hahaha....I've had like 5 lattes today to get my through the 8 hour shift I had to work alone today.....I swear, some things never change, I guess!! ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 09, 2007, 02:44:36 pm

oooo, i wanna be a Rockstar Grobie too!! can i, can i? ;D

ha, Josh has never been a "celebrity." the word celebrity these days has become tainted. he's said it himself; all of the paparazzi and media want nothing to do with him. he doesn't party all night or have any skeletons in his closet. he's too clean cut and genuinely sweet, and that doesn't appeal. good for him. :-*
nope, Josh is just a musician that happens to have a wild and crazy fanbase...not a celebrtiy. ;)
and since Aisling mentioned it, i think the same applies for Elijah too. i'm not really as hardcore a fan of Elijah as most people on this board are, if i'm even a fan at all these days..., but from what i've heard, he seems to also be sweet and caring too. ;)

ah, my iPod. aka my best friend. and i'm completely serious, that's the sad part. my iPod has so many albums on there that i don't have in cd form, which is one of the main reasons why i'm in diar need of an iPod adapter for my car. if i ever lost my iPod, i would cry for days. ah, i don't even want to think about that! :(

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 09, 2007, 02:50:02 pm

YAY for us all having the same brain! It's because we're Grobanites of course. ;D

Yes, Colleen, I say you are a Rockstar Grobie too! :-*


Ah I am so glad we're all on the same page about feeling odd calling Josh a celebrity. I'm just like, he's Josh, there's nothing more to say. ;D

Indeed, Joshy does have a wild and crazy fanbase, to say the very least.

Kate, I can tell you've had your share of caffeine today! Work all by yourself? Sheesh, you're brave! ::)

Ladies, on the topic of classical music, have you ever heard of the vocal group called Il Divo? I had heard of them in the past but had never really listened to them until today. And I am in LOVE! They're remarkable in my book. Talk about voices! Ah, they give me chills. I highly recommend these guys to you Grobies. :-* I think you will appreciate it. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 09, 2007, 03:01:51 pm

IL DIVO ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OK.....I think a walk would be a good idea for me.....get rid of some of this excess energy.....Hahaha.

Colleen---I know what you mean about losing your iPod (I say "I know what you mean" alot.....)....someone actually had the audacity to steal mine in Feb......I swear.....I went crazy[-ier]....my friend lent me her mp3player, but she didn't give me the USB chord...so I was stuck listening to her songs for a few months, when I had saved up enough money for a new iPod.....needless to say, my new one MIGHT have a tracking chip in it....hahaha, no, I'm not that crazy.

Ahhh, the fact that Josh is not a party animal makes me love him even more...I mean, he's obviously not BORING, but I've never understood why people decide its necessary to party all night......never have, never will. Did I mention how much I love him?

;D ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2

And I love this new-found energy Kate. Haha! :D

I too say "I know what you mean" a ton. Sheesh. :P Haha.

I love my iPod. I too would go bazerk without it! ::)

Yeah, what is so wonderful about going out all night and getting wasted and the Lord knows what else? ::) Bah. :P


I believe you did mention how much you love him. And I am certain I love him just as much! ;D ;D

I know what you mean......D'OH!!!

*fights urge to say 'I know what you mean' again* Yeah....my co-workers are alwasy going out and getting drunk, which is sad because a few of them are underage.....I just....I mean....Common sense: Don't go out partying all night when you know you have to be at work at 5:30 the next morning....and then expect Kate to cover for you because you're so hungover you can't even do your job..... >:(

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 09, 2007, 05:42:53 pm

eh, i'm behind. it happens.
ok, so classical music...it's never really been my thing. i think i pride myself too much in being a rock and roller to the core way too much that it takes me a while to give other styles a fair chance, which is why it took me so long to really appreciate Josh. i honestly didn't like him the first few times i heard him.
but this is not the case with classical. i've grown up with it (my mother's a huge fan) and i've experienced it (band...need i say more?), and i really do appreciate it having played Beethoven, Bach, Tchaikovsky, and all the rest on my clarinet on more than one occasion, but i don't think i could ever just sit and listen to it.
so, pretty much needless to say, Il Divo is also not my thing. Josh is one-of-a-kind in my musical collection, and i think he always will be. ;)

as for partying, a lot of my friends do it too. and they wonder why i don't hang out with them more...i'm pretty sure that's why most of them have resorted to calling me emo (even though i'm totally not...i'm way too happy! lol), it's because i don't get drunk or party with them every weekend. i'd much rather stay at home with a good movie or book. and a cup of coffee. and maybe Josh. mmm. ;)

Ah I totally respect that. See I have never truly been a rock n' roll person. It just never clicked with me like classical/vocal has. Of course I love some rockish bands like Panic! at the Disco, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, etc. because everyone needs to rock out every now and then. And then I love power metal such as Kamelot and Epica. But that is because power metal is all derived from classical music. Which is amazing to me. I play clarinet, and when classically played is poetry. Yet I still carry respect for other genres. Like Angelique Kidjo's style. Love it. Michael Buble's jazz, love it. So I am diverse but classical speaks to me the most.

Speaking of Joshy and Buble, we all know how they are good friends. I just stumbled across this video and I was wondering if you ladies had ever seen it. It made me laugh so hard! ;D

i can appreciate that. we all may share a brain, but at least there's something to differentiate between us. ok, excuse me while i delve into deeper waters here, lol.
honestly, this is the power that Josh has and why he's so amazing. he can take people like me who wouldn't listen to classical music for more than a minute if you paid me yet couldn't live without rock, and people like you who relate more with classical music than any other type but never had that connection with rock, and can bring them together to appreciate the same style of music...let alone be great friends. ;) and that goes for everyone here. we all have different likes and dislikes, but we share that common thread in Josh. that's what i call amazing. :)

that video, is it the one where Josh crashes Bublé's concert?


sidenote:
Kate, your avatar rocks. ;D

Everything you girls said up there about music...totally agree....My taste is so diverse....I think I'm the only person in the world who has something like Panic! at the Disco playing on their iPod and the next song on the shuffle is (Yes, this actually happens because I am a dork) a Church/classical song. :)

Hahaha.....I'm glad there are at least two other people out there who have very contrasting types of music on their iPod. ;D ;D

Ahhhh, 'YAL' brings back good memories...*sigh* :)

shut up! i totally wish i had Veggie Tales on my iPod. ;D i just watched King George and the Ducky the other day. ;)

i completely forgot about the VMAs. i was very disappointed in myself. :P but maybe it's a good thing i missed it...they've been a bit raunchy the past few years...i'm sure i just missed out on a bunch of vulgar crap that i have no desire to watch anyways.

i'm pretty sure Josh wasn't up for anything. YAL and Feb. Song aren't really MTV's type of music. ;)

Hahahaha, iTunes has ALL of your Veggie Tales needs/wants!!! :) My favorite is Dance of the Cucumber.....since it's half in Spanish....ahhh, Larry, my hero!


I watched Britney's video on mtv.com this morning...she wasn't even trying....and it was still really disgusting...I feel so sorry for her, but still....yikes.

Also, Sarah Silverman was just BRUTAL! I mean, I'm not a big fan of Paris Hilton or Britney Spears either, but she was going after Britney's KIDS even, and was bashing Britney RIGHT after her performance....I mean, it might have been funny had she had some tact. ::) ::) But it was just rude....jeez.

Yeah.....I figured that would happen....but, never hurts to ask! :) But, dangit, it should be!! Hahaha!

Kate, you can get Veggie Tales on your iPod? Bleh, I was clueless! ::)*adores Veggie Tales* 8)

The VMAs were horrid. I laughed incredibly hard when Britney Spears was the opener. I kind of felt sorry for her because the world had to have been laughing at her. :-\ Why am I always sympathetic towards others? ::) She did lip sing the whole thing. She looked like she was about to collapse, as if she were on something. :-X

Sadly, MTV does not appreciate music such as Josh's. :-\


I really lost it with the VMAs when I saw FOB and Brendon Urie singing together while some people were RAPPING behind the music! BLAH! :-X I was quite disappointed in the two of my favorite alternative bands. :-[


Kate, I think that Sarah girl was brutal too, but I did like how she called Madonna a snake. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 10, 2007, 09:22:45 pm

ah, Sarah Silverman. ::) she's always been brutal...i've never found her funny. she gets her jokes from making fun of other people. not cool. :P

aw, sorry Megs. i really don't see what you see in FOB and Panic! (sorry if that came off sounding mean...it wasn't meant to sound that way... :-[), but i can understand being upset when one of your favorites does something stupid.

*smacks forhead* Fashion Rocks 2007. why didn't you guys remind me that i was going to post these pictures?! lol!






jeans...*drools*



i love his shirt. and there's a vest too? *drools again*



Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 10, 2007, 09:27:49 pm

I saw a little ad for Fashion Rocks on MySpace or something. What was that all about? I feel ashamed that I missed it. :-\

But thank you for the pictures! Joshy looks lovely, as always! 8)


Honestly, I don't know what I saw in Fall Out Boy. I mean their latest album and the previous were fun and catchy. When over-played, quite annoying. And really, when I heard Patrick Stump sing live last night I screamed. I had not a clue that he was such a horrid singer live. Gave me a good idea of just how much they doctor up their music in the studio. So it is true, I have pretty much lost all respect and love for them. ::)

But Panic! I love. Always have. I find their lyrics quite clever. They can be sad and deep yet up beat and different all at the same time. Oh and also, from personal experience, they don't suck live. Brendon Urie actually has a lovely voice and the others play well together. :)

Poor thing looks exhausted!!! But very attractive, nonetheless.... ;D And I wish Getty Images wouldn't watermark such beautiful pictures..... ::)

Yeah....don't really understand why she would think that would be funny....even some of the audience members were like, "Seriously? You-You're serious?"

I'm not the biggest FOB or PatD fan, but I do enjoy some of their songs. ;D ;D I like pretty much anything, hahahaha.

I've been thinking about going into something like Music Therapy or something....I mean, I'd probably suck at it, sicne I can't sing or play an instrument, but.....I always make CDs for people, when I can see they're feeling sad or just because....I love listening to a song and thinking, "Oh, so and so would love this..." That's kind of why I enjoyed making Josh his CDs.....I just hope he enjoyed the songs I put on there.....but.....I don't know....[/random]......and I totally forgot where I was going with that, ahaha.

Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 10, 2007, 09:35:03 pm

Yeah, the crowd did give her an odd look. As I did the television screen. As Joshy put it, something like, "They're watching me. I'm watching them. They're watching me watching them...it's awkward..." ;D

Kate, I think that is an awesome field! I bet you would be good at it! I have always found it fascinating and wanted to look into it. I know how much music is a thearputic tool for myself. So I understand it's importance in a profession. :)

Oh, so, this IS semi-Josh related (MODS!!!)....I bought a bunch of Ladysmith Black Mambazzo and Angelique Kidjo (you all should watch her video for 'Gimme Shelter', its amazing...she's amazing...go watch! :) ) off iTunes today.....so great, their music is so inspirational....I encourage you to check them out....I am thankful that Josh worked with these amazing people, and I can't believe I ever lived without hearing their music....it's so great!! :)

Haha oh, oopsie, *hugs mods*! ;D


Ah I love Angelique! I just bought her latest album off of iTunes about a week ago. 'Gimme Shelter' is my favorite aside from 'Pearls' of course. ;)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 10, 2007, 10:11:34 pm

Awww, I totally had a 'Pearls' moment today in my World Civ class....my teacher was talking about the African slave trade, and he was talking about all the things the conquistadors had the inhabitants do (like, labor work; sugarcane, pearls, etc) and when he said pearls I immediately heard Josh and Angelique singing in my head....

This is how she's dying....she's dying to survive....wrote that next to my notes.....think I'll have to listen to that song when I study for my test. ;)

I love 'We Are One' by Angelique....it's kind of sad, that I first heard the song from the Lion King 2 movie, hahaha. Her version is much better....the message is so beautiful, I've always loved that song and her singing it just makes it even more beautiful. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 10, 2007, 10:14:27 pm

i'm so negative today.
but again, i don't really enjoy Angelique's music. i know and recognize that she is an amazing artist with talent beyond most, but the South African/Reggae genre doesn't appeal to me.
gosh, why can't i just say something positive for once? i'm so sorry guys. it's just been one of those days (well, weeks really...), you know? :-\ i'll just stop for tonight and hope tomorrow turns out better.

"I think I should have no other mortal wants, if I could have plenty of music. It seems to infuse strength into my limbs and ideas into my brain. Life seems to go on without effort when I am filled with music."

Whatever you're hearing, you have to admit it's in your ears ALWAYS and sometimes it's in your soul, sometimes it's punching you in the back bone and makin' it hard for you to breathe. Take a breath- a deep one. I want to talk about MUSIC."

Ah as soon as you said The Lion King, I knew the song! I didn't know she sang that, or at least, I don't remember. Very cool. :)

I am very sorry that you haven't been feeling that great lately, I will be thinking of you and hoping that you start to feel better soon....remember, we're here if you need us....we may never have met, and we may be miles away, but we still care. :)

Megsie, why thank you, my dear, ahahaha! Music has always been the best study companion for me...:) ;D "This is how she's dying..." always gets me to....heart stopping!! :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 10, 2007, 10:36:42 pm

now Pearls...Pearls is a great song. i listen to it on repeat for hours at a time.

i don't know what's wrong with me, really. i always say i'm a really happy person most of the time, but am i really? when was the last time i truly felt total elation? the Josh concert? nope, that was a horrible night for me. sure the concert was awesome, but even in it's awesomeness, crappy stuff happened.
things never seem to go my way, and i'm scared to death of failure. i really think it's starting to take it's toll on me...stress, angst, and constant worry about my future. and not just my future, my present too. where am i going to go, and how am i going to get there? will i ever be able to get there or am i stuck in this state of mind for the rest of my life? or will i even be lowered to a worse state of mind?
i get in these moods, which i've never had before...i've never been a moody person, and then i think horrible things. horrible in the sense that i will never be anything great...all my life i've been second. i can't imagine you guys believing me, but it's true. my sister has always been the older, more intellegent, more helpful, more approachable one. my classmate never fail in succeeding over me in school. even at my youth group, i come up with a fundraising idea, someone else comes up with a better one. i'm appointed a job, such as manning the snack bar, make a mistake when counting money, and am immediately asked to man another position. all of these things, no matter how minute or trivial, managed to stick with me, lowering my self-confidence each time, until i'm left here, wondering whether i can do anything at all anymore. :-[
then i feel guilty. there are so many more people in the world who are way worse off than i am...i should be ashamed to feel ashamed of myself. it's a cycle. a never ending circle. i think things are starting to look up, but that ray of sunlight is just another glowing cinder falling on my back and burning me, giving me another reason to hate. :P

thanks for your support girls. i hate to burden this thread with such depressing topics, but i just needed to get that out, even if it didn't do much to improve the way i'm feeling. your girls rock...i need more people like you in my life. :-*

but like i said, i just need to go to bed. i think sleep is the best thing for me right now...

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 10, 2007, 10:46:55 pm

Colleen......I have certainly been there, and I am sorry you have to deal with that, it is not easy, I know....but please do not give up---that ray of sunshine will come out from behind the cloud when you least expect it....it did for me, and I feel so much better---you are a great person, and you will be rewarded. I know what it's like when it feels like all the work you do seems to go unnoticed....that is my life at work, and why I am currently seeking employment elsewhere.....my co-workers are always late and they always get drunk before they have to work and expect me to work for them, and it's all without a lick of appreciation....it's like I just get pushed to the side....but remember there is always someone out there who CAN see your work and truly appreciates you for that...you have alot to offer this world, and I hope you are able to see that.....do not let these thoughts get you down....it can be really damaging. For so long I fought them myself, praying that something would come along to lead me towards a better path, and it did....and now I will be praying more than ever that you can have that same enlightening experience...it will come for you, sweetie! :) You are too good a person for it not to happen! :)

Think Joshy thoughts.....'You Are Loved' has been my song of the moment these past few days.....:) Maybe listening to that will help you feel better! :)

Colleen, Kate said it all best. We are here for you always. :-* I too know what it is like to have to ask yourself if you really are a happy person or not. Due to many factors in my life, I have started going to a psychologist towards the end of summer vacation. My family has been so supportive and friends such as you girls have helped me through it even though you were clueless to the situation. The doctor told me I am depressed, suffer severe anxiety with panic attacks, and I have OCD. So...that was a lot to take in at once. It was hard for me to accept. But, I turned to factors such as Josh's music to help me through it. I look for the little things that make me smile, even if just a little. You girls definitely do that for me. :) :-*

Colleen, we are here. :-*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 11, 2007, 06:47:12 pm

thanks girls. your support means the world to me. i haven't been able to tell anyone, friends and family alike, about this...i'm afraid of what they might say or think, of the scoffs or questioning looks i might get. :P

in lieu of what today represents, i thought it would be only fitting to post the video of when Josh sang the National Anthem at a memorial service one year after 9/11.
http://www.thatjoshgrobanguy.com/media/JG_ConcertforAmerica_256k.wmv

how incredible. he sang the most American song there is on the 1st anniversary on what today's generation will argue was the most life-changing, in a national sense, day in our history. wow.

Alright, everyone, GROUP HUG!!! Come here.....everyone, yup.....everyone in alright? Good! Aaaaaaaaaaand SQUEEZE!!!!!!
Megsie, I am very sorry to hear that you have been so troubled as well....Depression runs in my family, and because I'm hypo-thyroid, there will be times when, because my hormone level is so low, I'll be ultra-depressed, so I know and understand how hard this is for you girls, I think alot of people can....I think the best way to get through these tough feelings would to just surround yourself with people who love you as much as possible....turn up the Josh really loud....Ellen was saying on her show today about remaining positive, and as tough as that is at times, she has a point....
Just know I'm here for you girls if you ever need me! :) Don't hesitate, mmk? Megsie, you have my number, and if you would like it/need it, too, Colleen, I'd be happy to give it to you! :)

The 'symphanie' picture......she's on the boards at FOJG, and she's kind of scary, very stalkerish. :o Oh man, maybe it's the music, and maybe it was that I was just talking about the stalker, and maybe it was also because of that 2nd picture of him leaning against the wall, but I just got the urge to hold him in my arms and protect him from crazy Grobies (excluding myself, of course! ;D)

jbarbosa. i see her pictures EVERYWHERE. next time you talk to her, tell her she takes awesome pictures...and that she's incredibly lucky to get so close all the time. :)

i've been on the jg.com message boards since...well, it says 2/9/05, but i didn't actually start posting there until about a year ago. i have 1102 posts. so you're beating me, lol. i still don't really feel like i belong there...there are only a select few who are friendly, everyone else just sort of does their own thing...

Yeah, you do see that on FOJG, too, but there are alot of people, so eventually you'll find the right 'clique'....it's sad, but it's true...there are a bunch of cliques, and you can really tell who belongs to this one particular clique, 'The Scruff Muffin Hoes' or something like that....they're the ones who really have no problem objectifying the Josh man.... >:( I mean, yeah, he's attractive in the nerdy sort of way, but he is a beautiful human being that does not deserve to have the things they say about him said......wait....I lost myself there..... ;D :o

I actually found it on the FOG boards....I'm not talented enough to figure out how to get one from my video, plus, in my video of NWIA, he doesn't look right at "me", hahahaha.

EDIT:

I JUST figured out (finally!!!) what was on his shirt at the concert.....or at least I *think* that's what it is...I could be wrong:



It's the Millenium Falcon from Star Wars!!!! ;D ;D ;D

I like Josh Groban, and usually when I hear one of his songs, I stay listening to them. I have'nt really found out much about him (though I did see him on Oprah show and I do like him). Maybe it's about time to get to know him better and join one as of his fans? ;D

Welcome, Lorienel! It's great to have you!!! *cough* Now, I don't want to scare you off, but one of the royal decrees in the land of Grobania is: "Once ye becometh a Grobanite, there is no turning-eth back-eth"

Or something along those lines.... ;D


[By the way, I am very aware of the fact that I am a dweeb/dork/nerd/geek/fill in the blank. Thankyouverymuch]

Hahahahaha, I loved that part, too, Megsie!!! I would LOVE for Josh to make me a sandwich.... :-*

Kate indeed! A very accurate decree! ;D

Yes! Joshy can make me a sandwhich any day....only....I'd want to save it...and then it'd get old.... but, I suppose I could eat it and be able to say I (literally) have a little piece of Josh within me.



.....oh....wait....



Argh.


Nevermind. ::)

Post by: Kate06 on September 14, 2007, 05:18:21 pm

Hahahaha, Megsie! That's alright....Hmmm....maybe we should invest in those....well....would air tight clear display boxes still keep the sandwich nice and Joshy fresh? (That might have come out wrong......)


We will find away!!!


Hypothetically speaking of course, as we have yet to find Josh, meet him and introduce ourselves, and then gradually ask him for a sandwich. Ahhhh, I can see it now:

"HI JOSH!"
"H---Hello?"
"How are you? I'm great, thanks! I love your music, you are AMAZING!!! WOO!!! YEAH!!.....Hey, can you make me a sandwich?"
"......Oh my god....."

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 14, 2007, 05:20:26 pm

Ah, glad you understand haha. ::) Yes, Joshy fresh! ;)

Hahah I can totally picture that! :-*

But he might do it...right? If it's cold outside....haha.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 14, 2007, 05:23:43 pm

Hahahaha, I'm sure he'd do it, just because he's a sweetie....but maybe if its not as random as "....Hey, can I have a sandwich?" Hahaha, that might be a tad out of line. ;) :)

Josh: How did you get in here?

Us: Is that really important? No.

Josh:......wanna sandwich?

Oh, hey, guys, I was thinking, I know there's a store at the mall that makes shirts, and I really want to get a shirt that has Josh's "Let's talk about music" quote on it, in my own handwriting (don't worry, I'll cite it -Josh Groban)....just because it would be awesome to have that shirt.....unless that's too crazy. Then you can just tell me, hahaha, I promise I won't be offended. 8) Wait, almost forgot my point: Did you girls want to get shirts like that, too? Thought it would be cool.....and then we could wear them to our concert, when we go. :)

Not cheesy at all!!! ;) If it took me a while to respond, it was because I took a walk. With the weather being so beautiful and all. :) And me having this abundant ammount of energy....hahaha....guess that grande latte is just now kicking in.


Ah, I don't know what I'd do without this thread, lol.

I don't know what I'd do without this thread either. ;D

Post by: Kate06 on September 14, 2007, 07:51:59 pm

It's chilly here, but no rain...we had a bunch last week, though. :P
I take walks two/three times a day, depending on my mood.....and with my iPod....it's so therepuetic, I love it. :)

Josh is great. ;D

Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 14, 2007, 07:53:56 pm

I too love walks. I need to take my iPod next time. Spend a little quality time with some classical music.



Maybe Josh will take a walk with us. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 14, 2007, 07:56:43 pm

I can't take a walk without my iPod.....that's how addicted to music I am....it just helps me think better, that's all. :) And sometimes I'll be walking because I've had a bad day, and a song will come on and I suddenly feel very strengthened by the power of the lyrics and harmonies. :)



I would absolutely LOVE that!!! There's a park that's fairly close to my house...it would be the perfect spot of taking a walk...with plenty of for Sweeny to play around. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 14, 2007, 08:06:23 pm

Oh that sounds lovely! I feel the same about music. It's a great thing. :)

Aw! How romatic would that be? A walk in a nice park in autumn with Joshy and Sweeney playing in the leaves along the trail..... ;D *goes to cloud 9999999* ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 14, 2007, 08:07:55 pm

I think we're about to hit page 15 in a bit here, hahahaha.


They are...they really are. They're doing this Christmas/Holiday card thing on the boards, where if people want, they can send Christmas/Holiday cards to other board members, and I just think it's so sweet how they think of each other like that. :)

Page 15 here we come. ::)


EDIT:

Wow, I have been an awful Grobanite I think. :-\ I was sitting in my bedroom floor, just painting my nails like the girl I am, and I looked over to my DVDs and I saw the Josh Groban in Concert CD/DVD case (you know, the first one). And I thought...have I seen that DVD? :-X I rushed to the case and pulled out the DVD and popped it in the player. Sure enough I had never watched it! I was (and still am) amazed at myself! Well I am watching it now. And all is well. I am still rather angry at myself. ::)

Going? I'm already gone!!! ;D ;D


Great, I'll go check out the shirt stuff on Monday then.

My manager kind of pissed me off last night. I have this setting on my phone where if you call me, it plays a song. Right now it's playing Feb. Song (But I'm about to change it to Machine) and yesterday he called me and then last night he came over and was like, "Who was that girl singing on your phone?"

:o ::) Of course....I mean, when it plays February Song, it starts right off at the high part, so.......but still. ::) Its not that he didn't like Josh, it's that he said it sounded like a woman singing Church songs. ::) I just hate it when people criticize the musicians I love like that. You don't have to like him, but dude.....spare the criticism for someone else. >:( ;D


Yes....a very fall day here, especially since there's a Nebraska game every Saturday...we get really busy at the store those days. ::) But I enjoyed many hot drinks at work......Heck, with all the cleaning I did last night, I figured I deserved some coffee, hahahah. ::) But....I might try and go for the assistant manager position.....that is if I can't find a better job soon, ahahaha. ::)

EDIT: Duuuuuuuude.....I put way too many " ::)" smilies.....but it's sort of fun watching them...hahaha, they're all in sync!!! HAHAHA! Look at 'em go!!!
*cough* It should be noted that I went to bed at 11 last night and I am up at 4 in the morning to go back into work, ahahah. I haven't had my coffee yet....

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 16, 2007, 08:51:29 am

Bahahaha! Kate you crack me up!

Geez you're not an assistant manager yet? With all the working you do alone I'd think you were the manager! ::) (I like this smiley just as much Kate haha) ;)

Blah, people do need to lay off the Josh criticism. I mean honestly, I can find every celebrity that I care about a lot and can find something to criticize them about. That is most likely because they are typical celebrities. However, when it comes to Josh, I cannot criticize. Of course every human has their flaws, but as a good person and a musician there is nothing to criticize him about. He is just so down to earth and acts just like his honorable fans.


Oh Joshy, how I love thee. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 16, 2007, 09:06:29 pm

Hahahaa, thanks, Megsie!!

I know..... ::) (Hee hee!). One of the girls I work with actually went through some of the asst. manager training, she just didn't think it was worth it after a while, I think because she wasn't getting her raise, but she started after me, so if she had gotten a raise, I think crazy Kate might have been let loose, hahaha. ;) But, if I were assistant manager....I'd be so annoying, I swear, I would start calling people hours before their shift like, "OK, let's be on time today!!! Start getting ready now and be sure to leave home with some time to spare!"

Punctuality must be painful for my co-workers, because they can never seem to be on time. ::) But with our old manager, they've never really had an incentive to come into work at all, so I guess I can't blame them, but it's still incredibly rude for someone who's worked 8 hours since 5:30 in the morning and has to wait for someone to come in so they can go home. >:(



Yeah, and not only is Josh a good person, but I mean....he REALLY is a great performer/artist. Even if you don't like his kind of music, the man can SING. He puts on a GREAT show, he's a very amicable person....sweet, down to earth, cares for his family, friends, and even his fans, no matter how crazy we are. His patience with us and the business in which he works is neverending, and that is such a great thing. :) He's very well grounded, so I get very defensive when people criticize such a wonderful person when there are people who are out there giving music a bad name......I won't name any names, but, I think we can all think of a few people. ::)

That being said, I LOVE YOU JOSHMAN!!!!! ;D ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 16, 2007, 09:16:28 pm

Heh. It's so weird not seeing this thread at the top of the list.... ;D

Someone sent me the mp3 of Josh singing NWIA, so if you girls would like it as well, I'd be happy to send it to you. :) It's beautimous. Perfect for a rainy day like today (my curls are actually cooperating.....somewhat!!!). Too bad the cafe at school totally ruined my cappuccino. I had originally wanted a Cafe Misto (OMG those are yummy) but they didn't have it on their menu.....grrrrrr.....

Dang. I wish I had XM. :(

You guys, less than a month until 'Noel' hits the shelves!!! I am so ready for my four copies, hahahaha....and I am going to be rushing my little booty over to Target to get the Special Edition CD/DVD....oooo baby, can't wait for Christmas this year!

awww, poor Josh. i think the people that filmed the video said it right: "oh, come on..." ::) Josh seems so flustered...i feel really bad for him. yes, it's nice you gave him a gift, but a gift is meant to be selfless...it almost seems she wanted praise or something in return for being so noble as to give him a present. poor Josh...you can tell he was getting agitated. :P

Post by: Kate06 on September 18, 2007, 04:00:02 pm

I know! :( I did love it when he was trying to pull it away from her, "Give- it's min-let-"

And then, "I swear I'm not trying to blow you off....it's just *motions towards the audience*"

Don't feel bad, Joshy! She was way out of line!!!

Yeah, I did hear the camera woman saying, "Oh come on...."

He handled it very well, though.

I love coffee, just for the record. ::) ;D

Ah! "Noel" is so close! ;D

And Kate, I would LOVE for you to send it to me. I'll pm you my address too in case you don't have it. :-*

ahhh, bugger. i hate computers.

ps, i watched that video you posted again...the one with the crazy lady...when she pulls out those big glasses, Josh says "yes, those are very silly." haha, i didn't catch that last time. it reminded me of myself, i say that all the time. he's so silly. ;D

Have you ladies seen this picture?


Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 19, 2007, 05:26:54 pm

Kate I have seen this pic and I adore it! Joshy is such a rockstar! ;D


Colleen I love the pic of Joshy with the piano! Lovely! My oldest clarinet is a Yamaha. *I always try too hard to make my life connect to Josh's* ::)

Speaking of such, I am now a member of our high school's drama club. It's new this year. I got into it because I have always loved plays and musicals. I couldn't sing or act in them, but I adore Josh for what he's done in theatre. The leader told me I'd make a great director of some sort. :)


Yes it seems that Target is still the best bet. HOWEVER, I'd love to have a Joshy Christmas ornament. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 21, 2007, 09:49:31 am

That's awesome, Megsie!! I wasn't part of the drama scene in high school until my senior year---as a crew member. I made a lot of friends, even though it was a lot of work...it was worth it. :) I was planning on going into film, so that's why I joined...hahaha. Oh well! XXDD

Yeah, found out I have my Government mid-term on Oct. 9th....you're killing me, Teach. Oh well....if I study like hell the night before, I can use that nice three hour period between my first class and that class to take the shuttle to the mall and pick up at least the Special Edition at Target. :) The other 4 can wait...... ;) ;D ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 21, 2007, 03:52:31 pm

Megs, my clarinet is a Yamaha too, but sadly it's dying. all the keys keep falling off and it is so out of tune that it's beyond repair. practice and football games in the rain have unfortunately killed it. so after this year, it's only fair to lay this one to rest permanently in it's case and save up for a nice wooden clarinet. :)

i just realized that i'm skint broke...which is going to make buy "Noel" the day it comes out very tricky, it not impossible! :-\ i might even have to wait until Christmas :o because any money i do make goes back to my parents because i'm indebted $70 to them. :( poo poo face!

so who wants to hear about my weekend of stress coming up?
i have to...
English:
-finish reading Othello by William Shakespeare and catch up on my close-readings (don't ask) that i missed for this week.
-catch up on all other close-readings for Titus Andronicus and all of the short stories we read that i didn't do
-rewrite a paper
-hardcore organize my [3 inch] binder
Time: about 5 hours
French:
-packet of doooooom. 5 pages long, front and back.
Time: about 30 min.
Economics:
-2 essays
Time: about 1 hour
Journalism:
-write my review of "Across the Universe," a movie i haven't see yet, and may never see since all the theaters within a 60 mile radius are apparently not showing it
-possibly think up a new topic and write about that
-edits, edits, edits of all the kiddies in the Arts & Entertainment beat
Time: about 2 hours (excluding actual viewing time; that included, closer to 4-5 hours)
Band:
-away football game tonight
-parade tomorrow
-band show tomorrow
Time: 16 hours
Church/Lunch with family
Time: 4 hours

TOTAL TIME: 28 hours 30 minutes (or 30-31 hours 30 minutes if i go to see ATU)

plus i have college essays/applications to do, and who knows how long that will take me.
goooooooood. :P

Josh, you better not let me down now. with all this stress, i need you more than ever. i'll be lucky if i don't get another stomach ulcer!






and i need to buy gas for my car or else i won't make it to the high school and back without stalling. arrrrrgh.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 21, 2007, 04:48:08 pm

Kate, yeah this is my senior year and I am pretty excited, it's just I hope it doesn't stress me out even more than I already am being the editor of the paper. ::)

Colleen, it sounds like your poor Yamaha has about had it but it sounds like it's done a good job through out the years. Might I suggest a Buffet Grenedilla Wood clarinet. They're beautiful. I adore mine. :)

I hope you're capable of coming up with money for "Noel". I really don't know how I am going to conjure up the money either. :-\ Perhaps it can be an early Christmas gift if I offer to share it with my mom. ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 21, 2007, 06:21:07 pm

I've got 4 copies of Noel ordered....if you girls want me to send you a copy wen I get them, you can just pay me back later or whatever.....but if you're uncomfortable doing that, I understand. ;)

Megsie- have fun! I had a few stressful moments, as some of the "friends" that were part of the crew too made me do most of the work. For some reason, they sent ME of all people to tell the cast that was backstage to be quiet while the other actresses were on stage. The most I'm going to be able to do about that is , "Guys, can you tone it down a bit, thanks!" I don't know why she sent me! Gosh....sorry, ranting. Oh, and for some reason I was the one who had to stand in for the actresses that were sick, even though they knew I didn't act (hence I was a crew member...duh!), and two of them are always boasting about their incredible acting skills. ::) ::) I think they just wanted to laugh at me, hahahaha.

Colleen- WOW!! You've got a full plate! I'll be praying for you----I hope you don't get too stressed out!! I have faith in you!!! :)

Aw Kate that is very sweet of you, but I think I can work something out before the 9th. Thanks so much though! ;D

Eh, I do expect some stress from it, but I expect it to be a good experience. :)

I too will be praying for you, Colleen! :)

Post by: Colleen on September 23, 2007, 06:30:00 pm

ok, so editing is taking much long than i had anticipated; Across the Universe has what's called a "rolling release," meaning it opens in a new city each week, also meaning it won't come to my city for what could be weeks, meaning i need to either write a dry review or come up with an original topic and write 10 inches in hopefully 45 minutes or less; i can't even understand the directions on my French packet; i haven't even started reading Othello, nor the close-readings, nor re-writing my paper...

and i'm FREAKING OUT!!!! my mom let me skip church today because i was so swamped...i woke up at regular time and have been working non-stop since then. i got very little done Friday night, absolutely nothing Saturday because the show took longer than expected and my mom had a jewelry part Saturday night that i had to help with (refilling chip bowls, making sure the food stayed hot, even modeling some jewelry ::)), and then today rolled around and i'm convinced i'm going to have a heart attack soon. :(


ANYWAYS! i took a break to eat something for the first time today and listen to some music to calm me down, and i found that someone made a list of the songs Josh played on his XM Radio thing.
Bjork- Human behavior
Pearl Jam- Once
Muse- Butterflies and Hurricanes (ok, love?)
Depeche Mode- Personal Jesus
Dave Matthews Band- American Baby (yay!)
Imogen Heap- Hide and Seek (who doesn't love her?)
Annie Lennox- Into the west (YAYYY!!!)
Peter Gabriel- Solsbury Hill (yay again!
Sweeny Todd- the Demon Barber of Fleet Street (i mean come on now...it's impossible to love him this much...)


i mean what? how amazing is his taste in music. and he seriously played Into the West...that just makes my heart melt...i love everything about him. ;D

and, for all of us day dreamers:
Josh on being single...

'I've been single for the longest I've ever been,' he sighs. 'I've met some lovely women, but not anyone who makes me feel like I want to sacrifice a lot of my life for them yet.' And if he does? 'When I start getting those butterflies, that's when I know I've met the right person. I turn to a ball of mush and just want to bathe them in diamonds. It's a very expensive bath, I know, but it's worth it.'

*melts*

Colleen, you are loaded down, aren't you love! :( I am sorry! I will say a prayer for you that all this stress will be relieved very soon! :-\ :-*



Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 23, 2007, 08:01:08 pm

Songs I love that Josh played:
Annie Lennox- Into the west
Peter Gabriel- Solsbury Hill
Muse- Butterflies and Hurricanes (I love this version and William Josheph's piano version. :))

I really think I took the wrong path when it comes to music....when I turned 11 I started getting into that Spice Girls/boy band craze, and I think I really missed out on some great music, so I'm playing 'catch up', sort of. My dad has been 'schooling' me on that music.....aka, I've been taking his CDs and copying them to my laptop, hahaha. And pretty much going through iTunes and buying loads of songs. :P Now that those other songs have Joshy's stamp of approval on them, might just have to check them out.

Love that quote about him bathing his girl in diamonds. Sounds a bit painful to me, but the thought of him feeling like a girl is worth that is so *swoon*. Adorable. :) :( Unfortunately, Josh, mon chere, can't say I have much sympathy for you when you say, ''I've been single for the longest I've ever been,' he sighs." I've been single for 19 years....granted, I've only really cared for 6 of those years, but still.....it's lonely, hahaha. I still love you though, Joshy. Even if no one seems to feel that way for me, lol! ;D ;)

Colleen---WOW!!! YOU ARE WOMAN!!!! I also will be praying that things start to wind down for you, and that you don't get too stressed. *BIG HUGS* Good luck, chicadee. I'm rooting for ya! :)

Off to iTunes!!!! So I can get 'edumacated' in 'muzaq'! :P ::) ;D


EDIT:
Found this on the boards.....and WOW!!!!! I WANT TO HEAR THIS SONG!! It's pertty much the story of my life, and I haven't even heard it.....I've just got that feeling.....

"And the third song we've worked on is called 'I'll wait for you'. It's a very beautiful, very powerful statement of commitment to someone. It's also written by Josh. You could say it's almost an anthemic song. It is truly a very impactful song, and I think everyone will be very excited when they hear it, and maybe be a little surprised to hear it coming from him."


It wasn't on Awake, but I've heard he's already started working on his next album, so I'm hoping this will be on here. 'She's Out of My Life' was supposed to be on the debut album, but instead was put on the special edition of Closer.

Also, someone said something on FOJG (can't find the direct qoute) about how Josh reallly had to push to let them (the producers or someone...don't know, whoever decides what goes on the CD?) to put Awake, even if it was just on the special edition......How could you not want that song on the CD? That song is pure gold. I love that song....it makes me cry, laugh.........everytime I hear it I think of standing at the edge of the stage, swaying with my new friends, and singing along, tears running down our cheeks.


I really hope Josh can be happy, and that he knows he's loved. Makes me mad at those people who were telling him they 'didn't want' the song on there.....leave Joshy alone!!!!! He knows what he's doing!!! ::) ;)

wait, who said this?

i've heard he's already starting working on his new album too. does he ever sleep? but that song sounds awesome...i hope we get to hear it soon (i don't know if i told you guys this or not, but rumor is that his next album will be out as early as next fall :o).

Hehehehe, COlleen, LOVE the BEatles! My favorite album is 'Let it Be'....my dad has the Naked version, so I'm going to have to get that. I've recently fallen in love with Peter Gabriel and Paul Simon (Love Simon & Garfunkel!).....great stuff. :)

It was Glen Ballard that said that about the song, though!! Next fall?!? OMGOSH! I HOPE SO!!!


Megsie--Journey is good, too! I'm really open to different kinds of music, so I pretty much like everything, except rap. :P :P But we won't get into that. ;)

:o i'm sorry Megs, but we can't be friends anymore...
though yes, Journey is very good. :)

my dad has nearly every Beatles cd ever made (Abbey Road, Anthology 1-3, Back-Track [a bootleg], Back-Track Part 2, White Album, Beatles For Sale, A Hard Day's Night, Help!, Let It Be, Let It Be...Naked, Live at the BBC, Love [Cirque Du Soleil], Magical Mystery Tour, Past Masters Vol. 2 [Vol. 1 is yet to be found], Please Please Me, Revolver, Rubber Soul, Sgt. Peppers..., Ultra Rare Trax Vol. 4 [Vol. 1-3 are also yet to be found], With The Beatles, Yellow Submarine, 1962-1966, and 1967-1970), and he was kind enough to share them with me, along with all the Paul McCartney, Wings, Ringo, John Lennon, and George Harrison single albums ever. :D

Simon & Garfunkle are on my "fall music" list. mellow is what it's about in autumn. :)

*ahem* Josh...right...

;D I saw Paul McCartney live in 2005, I didn't know any of his new songs, except for a few, but I did know all the Beatles songs. Gosh.....dad, I am ransacking your CD racks, hahaha. ;)


Ahh yes, it is the perfect time of the year for S&G. My dad gave me 'Bridge OVer Troubled Water' for Valentine's Day this year, ahahaha. What could be better than the gift of music on the 'day of love'? XDD

And of course.....Josh is great, too! :D ;D

ok, so i'm skipping school today. ;D with such a hectic weekend, i figured i deserved a break.

anyways, i found this adorable new picture that i can't wait to share with you guys, but it's a bit blurry. i'm currently having someone clean it for me, so i should have it by the weekend. :)

Post by: Kate06 on September 24, 2007, 02:24:48 pm

Glad you have a chance to take a break, Colleen. You deserve it. :) :-*
Can't wait for that picture, either!


So....I decided I'm going to post what I gave Josh on his CDs....I've been aching for SOME opinion on the matter, so I figured I'd ask some Grobanites. :)

*sigh* Well.....here it goes.

CD #1

Sunshine- Matt Costa////This is a really sweet song...very good to listen to when it's cold out or you're feeling blue.
Countdown- Lindsey Buckingham////My dad used to play this all the time when my brother and I were younger. I love it--it just makes you want to get up and go crazy!
The Servant Song- The Marantha! Singers////This is a really religious/spiritual song for me. My faith has become more personal over the years, and I only really feel comfortable sharing that with family and close friends, but when I listen to songs like this, it's so encouraging. Anyone, religious or not, can take something from this song...the words are so beautiful and powerful, I think.
Flowers in the Window- Travis////This is one of my favorite songs, it's really catchy and very sweet, also an encouraging song. :)
You Ruined Me- JC Chasez////I know....former boy band member. But I really think he deserves more recognition than he gets. His voice is so strong and empowering, and his songs can really open your eyes and make you say, "Wow! Great way of putting it!"
The Lives of Me- Hugh Jackman (The Boy From Oz Soundtrack)////Wolverine can sing!!! This was the first musical I saw on Broadway and I love it!! It's about the singer/songwriter Peter Allen, and it is amazing!
Build My World- JC Chasez////This is another of his songs that really blows me away. I can really relate to it....it amazes me how it feels like he's reading my mind and then putting it into song! It leaves me breathless!
Nada Valgo Sin Tu Amor- Juanes////This guy is amazing...he's a rock artist from Columbia, and....wow!! This is one of my favorite songs....really sweet lyrics, but I also LOVE the melody and the music! If you listen to just that....it's really amazing!
The Special Two- Missy Higgins////She has an amazing voice and I absolutely love this song. I love the powerful words of the chorus: "And we will only need each other, we'll bleed together...Our hands will not be taught to hold another's...When we're the special two....And we could only see each other, we'll bleed together....These arms will not be taught to need another....'Cause we were the special two."
You and I Both- Jason Mraz//// Not much to say about this song, except that it's a really sweet and catchy song. :)
Love Don't Need a Reason- Boy From Oz Soundtrack//// I really love the message of this song. A lot of people today tend to try and tell each other what love is, and this song is really saying, "Hey, love is unconditional, that's all you need to know."
Defying Gravity-Wicked Soundtrack//// I LOVE this song! And Idina Mezel does such an amazing job with this song...you can really empathize for Elphaba, and that's what I really love about this song, or any song that makes you feel that way, really.
Seasons of Love- RENT//// A very sweet song with a sweet message.
Springtime for Hilter- The Producers//// A friend of mine put this on a CD for me, and it brought a smile to my face, so I hope this makes you smile as well! :)
Catch Your Fall- Gavin Mikhail//// This guy is really great, his songs are awesome. I listen to this song whenever I'm feeling kind of down, and it always manages to make me feel better. :)
Sunshine on my Shoulder- John Denver//// My mom and aunts used to sing this alot to my cousins and I when we were younger, plus, it's just a really soft, 'sunny' song. :)
Africa-Toto//// A really good to listen to in the car when you're just cruisin' with your friends.


CD #2

Way Back Into Love- Hugh Grant and Haley Bennett//// Apparently, Hugh Grant can sing (well, sorta), too. This is from his movie 'Way Back Into Love' and I know it's a cheesy pop song, but the lyrics are really encouraging.
Grace Kelly-Mika////This guy....ROCKS! His stuff is amazing, if you like this song, check out the rest of this CD....I guarantee you won't be disappointed! :)
Find a New Way- Young Love//// A great song to get up and dance to.
Brave- Gavin Mikhail//// Another great song by this artist...and this one really encourages me as well, since I'm a very introverted person. :)
Mo Ghile Mear- The Chieftains and Sting//// This song is half in Gaelic and half in English. 'Mo Ghile Mear' means 'Our Hero' in Gaelic, and I just love the melody, vocals, and pretty much everything about this song! But that could be because I'm Irish ;-)
Nada-Juanes////A good song to listen to when you're feeling "bullied" by someone close to you. It really gives me the insight I need to stop and say, "The things this person is doing/saying to me really isn't right, and I don't deserve this." So I hope this song can encourage you when you are feeling down. :)
Rebel Heart-////The Corrs- A great instrumental piece. I absolutely love it.
Start Wearing Purple- Gogol Bordello//// Pretty much one of the greatest songs ever....so random, but I love it! Always manages to make me smile.
Light and Day- The Polyphonic Spree////This song will make you want to jump. :) Or maybe that's just me. :) But this is another great song to listen to while cruisin'.
Simple Gifts from Appalachian Spring- John Williams////I'm not classical music nut, but there are a few songs that I absolutely love, this one included.
Falling Slowly- 'Once' Soundtrack////This song is originally by an Irish band, The Frames. This version was in a movie made, I believe, about their journey as a band. I encourage you to go see it, if you can, It's amazing.
Bridge Over Troubled Water- Simon & Garfunkel//// I love this song so much! I remember when I first heard it--it blew me away!! I kind of like to think of it as a 'love song from God'. :)
The Summons- Catherine Benskin & T. Alan Marcinek//// This is another pretty spiritual/religious song.....I hate to be redundant, but I love it! :)
Omaha-Counting Crows//// Just because I love my city and this song reminds me of the College World Series....my friends and I usually go every year! :)
Everything- Lifehouse////This is SUCH a sweet song....its one of those songs that leave me breathless. :)
Boy With a Coin-Iron & Wine////Such a great song...another one that's good to listen to while driving.
Handle Me With Care-The Traveling Wilburys////A great song, and I can really relate, which really makes me love this song. I was listening to this one early morning when I was going to work, and it changed my attitude for the rest of the day---kept me in a good mood! :)


CD#3

Hopeless Bleak Despair- They Might Be Giants////This is an awesome band, if you ever get the chance to check them out. This one is pretty silly, despite the title. :P
"Ode to Joy" (from Symphony No. 9 in D Minor, Op. 125, "Choral")-Beecham Choral Society, Rene Leibowitz & Royal Philharmonic Orchestra////This is another one of my favorites, I've loved it ever since I was a kid. The message of the lyrics and the melodies flow together so beautifully, it's always left me breathless! I love it when they play this song at my parish Church----they have an amazing organ and it's so beautiful when that beautiful melody resonates through the Church. I love it :).
For You To Notice-Dashboard Confessional////Another one of my "favorite songs of all time". Like I've said before, I'm an introvert, so I generally just "admire from afar", and this song really captures how I feel in most situations. It's kind of like, "You may not see me now, but if you ever need me, I'll be there for you, no matter what."
Ready or Not (Omaha, Nebraska)-Bowling for Soup////Like I said, this town is just awesome, hahaha. They wrote this about the College World Series, I believe.
Istanbul (Not Constinople)- They Might Be Giants/// I don't know why I put two They Might Be GIants on the same CD, but, there you go. This one is one of my favorites by TMBG.
Put Your Head on My Shoulder- Paul Anka////This song is incredibly sweet. Whenever it comes on the radio my mom and aunts all sing along, and it's really great watching them, hahaha.
HIs Name is Lancelot- Spamalot/// This song is HILARIOUS! My friend Liz and I are going to see this in Omaha when it comes, and I can't wait! Hoepfully this song puts a smile on your face. :) Of course, with Hank Azaria and DAvid Hyde Pierce....how could you not enjoy this song?
Baila Morena- Zucchero & Mana//// This song just makes me wanna get up and dance "bajo la luna llena"/"under the moonlight"
Lose Myself- JC Chasez////OK, hahaha, you're probably getting sick of this guy, but I really love this song, and its really like this guy is tapping into the deepest depths of my mind and soul and putting that into song.
Finale B- RENT//// This is a really random song to put on a CD, but I've always loved how all the vocals blend together so well in this song, it's really powerful and moving!
Volare-Gipsy Kings////These guys can play guitar like nobody's business, they are awesome. This song was the first Gipsy Kings song I heard, and it's my favorite. :)
HEre (In Your Arms)- Hello Goodbye///Another really great song to get up and dance to, it has a really nice beat!
As Long as You're Mine- WICKED////This is one of my favorite songs from this musical, although it's really hard to pick, depending on the day. Norbert Leo Butz and Idina Menzel do an excellent job with this song. :) They're amazing.
While You Loved Me- Rascal Flatts////Well, I had to put some country on these CDs! ;)
A Groovy Kind of Love- Phil Collins////This is another really sweet song....I love Phil Collins.
Galaxy Song- Monty Python//// Another funny song! :)
Wake Me Up When September Ends-Green Day///I know this is technically the end of August, but I thought it worked anyways, and felt it was a good finish to these CDs. :)


Some of the songs I kind of regret putting on there....wish I would have put some other songs on there, but....oh well. What's done is done.

LOVE these songs!!! I just have a question..."Let's Dance"....is that the one from the Labryinth? I LOVE that one!! And you know....as soon as I get my new debit card, I will check all those other songs on iTunes! :) Thanks for sharing that, Colleen! :)

Let me know what you think of Gavin Mikhail....I love 'Brave'...that was the first song of his I heard and I love it. :)

*crosses fingers* I really hope he liked it!!! :) Some of the songs I'm still not sure of.

Listening to George Harrison's 'Concert For Bangladesh'. :) Thanks, dad! Hahahaha!


13 days until 'Noel'!!! :)

EDIT: For some reason I cut out "Supermassive Black Hole" by Muse off.....I like that song as well. :)

Let me know what you think of Gavin....

I'm listening to "Invincible" right now.....I love it. :) :-*

Colleen, I bought some of your songs off iTunes last night. Didn't realize that I had indeed heard some of them.

Look What You've Done- Jet
Cryin'-Aerosmith
Love Song-Anberlin

I also bought 'The Great Divide' by Hanson and it's really great!

I sent NWIA to you...let me know if you get it. :)

I was really inspired last night at work for some reason. Wrote a whole chapter for my story, but it's for later in the story, so unfortuntely I can't post it. I have a chapter started....but I think I might have to rewrite it. I'll work on that today and tomorrow (Government teacher has a conference, so I don't have class!). :) Sorry for the wait, ahahahaha.... ::)

slowly finding out Journalism is going to be a royal pain in my booty this year. we got a new program for doing layouts, and it's easy yet hard at the same time. a lot of work, but ultimately smoother to handle. i've got layouting plus editing plus article writing to do by Monday. and Monday is the lonnggggg day where we stay at school till about 9ish. oy.

Kate, i finally got that song. thanks so much for trying so hard to get it to me, i assure you it was well worth it. did you record it yourself?
just out of curiosity, what other songs did you buy?

the Hanson concert is tomorrow night! *dances* i'm sure it won't live up to Josh, but there's a good possibility i'll get front row...it's at a very small venue, and i've used force in the past to get what i want. i'll be loaded with my copy of "Underneath" and a brand new Sharpie as well. wish me luck! ;D

there's a good possibility that i'll get to write a review of Josh's christmas album for Journalism next issue (we're just printing out the first issue of the year Friday, Oct. 5 ::))

These are the songs I didn't get:

"Loving Every Minute" by Stereo Motion
"Flourescent Adolescent" by Arctic Monkeys
"Jesus Was a Crossmaker" by The Hollies
"Satisfied Mind" by Jeff Buckley
"Grace" by Jeff Buckley

But it was alot of moolah for the other songs, so I figured I'd wait until I get paid Friday. ;D


I'm waiting to hear back from Bath and Body Works....I interviewed there a few weeks ago and they called last night when I was at work, so I'm waiting for them to return my return call.....ahahahaha. I hope I get this job!!

Josh supports Ovarian Cancer Awareness:
[quote]Maybe the people at the South Carolina Cancer Foundation read the same information I did before planning what has to be one of the most creative fundraisers of all, Handbags for Hope.
Approximately 100 purses designed by local artists and other creative people will be up for bid at the silent auction and party at 6 p.m. Thursday at Saffron's Wrought Iron Hall in the West End. Organizers hope to make the fundraiser an annual event....
"Many of the designers have been touched by ovarian cancer in some way, sometimes a friend or family member," says Dwyer. "Quite a few purses were done in memory of a loved one who passed away from the disease."
Also in the silent auction will be a number of handbags autographed by celebrities, including author Nicholas Sparks, Food Network star Paula Deen and recording artists Josh Groban, Travis Tritt and Edwin McCain. Each of these special purses will contain a surprise gift certificate.

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month[/quote]

aaaand, from a member on FOJG, which was cross-posted on jg.com:
[quote]Ok everyone. This is my first post on here since becoming a member but I never really had anything too exciting to say up until NOW. Here is my exciting story:

First some background: I am a 3rd grade teacher here in Michigan at a very rural school. My students call Josh, my boyfriend because I have little pictures of him on my desk and we often listen to his music when we are working on homework! They have leraned to love Josh's music!

Well last year my class read the book Flat Stanley. We in turn did a project where we made our own Flat Stanleys and sent them around the world to "visit". Once they received Stanley, they took pictures with him and sent him back to us with literature on the place he visited and whatnot. Its a real cool project that the kids absolutly LOVED.

In May, I told the kids we would send our final Flat Stanley out to someone famous (thinking we wouldn't get them back so sending them out at the end of the year wouldn't cause tears for a missing Stanley that never returns!). Well one of my girl students asked if she could send hers to Josh! I thought it was a FABULOUS idea! hahaa! So she did.

Fast forward to 2 days ago...September 21, 2007 (reminder, we sent these May 2007). My principal comes with a padded envelope addressed to one of my students. I couldn't figure out why a student would be receiving mail at SCHOOL so I opened it up to check things out. Well I opened it up and I see it is a Flat Stanley from last year that we sent out. Upon further investigation...there is a polaroid picture of JOSH holding the Stanley my little student made!!!! Trying not to faint in class, I handed the envelope to the girl and told her she had some special mail from California. She opened it up and saw her Stanley and the picture inside. The picture was signed by Josh and was addressed to the girl and wrote, "Flat Stanley Rocks!"

I can't tell you how thrilled I am that Josh took the time to write to my student, let alone send a great picture and signature.

Josh is one-of-a-kind for gestures like this....not only did he make MY day....but he made a 3rd grade girl's day also by taking care of her Flat Stanley!

Thanks JOSH! [/quote]

how absolutely adorable! ;D

PS-
Josh has some of the greatest graphic tee's i have ever seen. i love his shirt! i just bought 2 shirts from Delia*s that is an eye chart and another with those colored bars that come up on the tv and on the bottom is says "this is not a test." i bet Josh would like them. ;D

Post by: Kate06 on September 26, 2007, 04:22:46 pm

I read that story on FOJG!!!! It definitely made me cry....what a sweetheart!!!! :) And such a great thing he's doing for the Handbags for Hope, too!


Gosh, can I just hug him? ;D ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 26, 2007, 05:38:01 pm

Aww! Josh is such an angel! My little cousin did a Flat Stanley project and made my dad carry him around every where. It was adorable. ::)

By the way, I was skimming downt he page and noticed this...

this is the song i've been wanting Josh to sing for the longest time. and Buckley's version too...it's so melancholy, and Josh could pull that off perfectly. when i originally wrote my letter, that's what i told him next that song. something like "the only reason i put this on the tracklist is so you would hear it and consider doing a rendition of it yourself..." lol.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on September 26, 2007, 11:13:42 pm

That would be amazing. *sigh*

They were talking about him singing 'When You Say Nothing At All' on the boards.....when I saw it, the first thing I thought of was my story. :o ;D How crazy would that be? I mean....it's unlikely, but....still. I would love him forever, hahaha. [As if I don't already?] But I'm really excited for his upcoming album...I think WB says there's a scheduled release in 2008, but we don't know for sure if its a new album. It could be the AWAKE DVD. :)

The "Flat Stanley" story is awesome! Lucky little girl.

And here's another anxiously anticipating the "Awake" DVD. ;D

I'm not sure how I would like him doing that particular song. Don't get me wrong, it's on of my top 5 favorite songs, but mainly because it sounds so spiritual with more of a falsetto than a baritone voice, but I'm sure Josh, of all people, could prove me wrong. In fact, I encourage him to do so. :)


I would also love to hear him sing 'Hallelujiah' and 'When You Say Nothing at All', as well as other songs. But mostly, I want to see what he comes up with by himself. 'February Song' and 'Awake' and OF COURSE 'Machine' are absolutely....perfect. I would love to see what he has up his graphic- tee sleeve. :) ;)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 28, 2007, 10:47:26 am

It warms the cockles of my heart seeing him drink a Frappuccino. *puts on apron* Joshy, let me make YOU something. :) Or, how about this: I'll make the coffee and you can make the sandwiches? ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 28, 2007, 09:13:42 pm

i've never really been a frappuccino kind of person, but the fact that he seems to love coffee as much as me makes me happy. ;D i wonder what kind that is...

speaking of coffee, i had 7 cups this morning. :o i didn't get in from the Hanson concert ( ;D) until 1:15am, and i still had to get a shower. i ran on 3 1/2 hours of sleep all day, including 3 hour band practice that i literally just got home from. ::) i'm pooped! *pops in Closer for some good sleepy time music* ;)

It looks like a Mocha frappuccino. It could be a Java Chip. Personally, I'm not big on the chocolatey drinks....love the Caramel Frap, if I do get a frap. I also love a little concotion of mine...'Cookies and Creme' Frapp. Really good. :)

lol, seriously, do i ever get a break? ::) my eyelids are drooping and my eyes are rolling in my head as we speak *goes to brew another pot of coffee* i'll feel so silly going to bed at 9:30...i haven't done that since elementary school, or if i'm sick.

i'm listening to this band called Locksley right now...they were the opening act for Hanson. omg, they are seriously my new favorite (check my myspace for a listen ;)). i met the lead singer of this band...we had the same hat on! lol. and when we noticed, he wanted to try mine on, so we like switched hats for the time we were talking. he was really cute too...haha! so even though i didn't get to meet Hanson (it was 12:30 and they still hadn't come out to the buses, and i had 2 tests first and second period this morning, so we just decided to leave...), that made up for it. they are keeping me awake right now. i put on Josh and he just made me slouch a lot. i can't have that just yet. ;)

so what is Josh up to these days? he's in Australia, right?

I am so worn out from being sick and going to the home game tonight. Being the band groupie and seeing loads of college friends while trying to have some quality time with one's boyfriend who attends college a few hours away, is tough work! ::) ;)

::)


Thanks for the interview! I'll check it out asap. :-*



So I just found out last night that one of my best friends, who attends college at ECU, is performing in the school's performance of Sweeney Todd! ;D I would die if he gets to sing NWIA! It would be so cool! ::)

.........*raises eyebrow* Someone is watching TV on their little portable television in the breakroom and it's REALLY loud...and, frankly, quite rude. This is what headphones are for!!!!!!!!!!! >:( Sorry, I'm mad because I was 5 minutes late for work....sounds crazy, but I'm really particular about being early. I woke up at 7:15....had to be at work at 7:30....it's amazing I got there at 7:35. *shakes head* But its been crazy busy and I'm ready to slap some people. This week I have to work everynight, at both Starbucks and Bath & Body Works. And I have a French test tomorrow, World Civ test Wed, some Congress Simulation on Tuesday. I hate politics, btw, and even though I asked to be a journalist, my teacher made me a Member of Congress. So, yeah, I think he hates me, lol.

We're learning about Africa in World Civ, and my teacher seems to be really passionate about it, so I'm going to email him about Ladysmith Black Mambazzo, Angelique Kidjo, and tell him about Josh's African-influenced songs...hopefully he'll be interested, hahaha. And no, I'm not trying to suck-up so I can get an 'A' on my test, hhaha. I just love to share music. :)

Not too many reports from Sydney/Australia....but apparently for his first concert he wore the outfit he wore for Omaha!!! :)

Ok.....I guess I should get back to work? Bleck.

I think it's a fabulous idea to share Josh's influences and other African music with your teacher. :)

I've used Josh's lyrics in an English paper before and my teacher really loved it. Josh is a good source for good grades. ;) ;D

You're not kidding! ;D When I had computer apps my freshman year way back when, we got to do a power point presentation on whatever our hearts desired. Needless to mention my subject, but my Joshy power point got one of the best grades in the class. ;D

Gah Kate, I don't know how you do it all! ::) You are Super Woman! Lots of work and school. I give you mad credit for all that.


I think it's a fabulous idea to share Josh's influences and other African music with your teacher. :)
[/quote]

Awww, you're a sweetie. :) I think what's gotten me through it is Josh's music. Last year was just catestrophic....and I wasn't listening to his music as much as I usd to/am now. But...it definitely helps. :) I definitely wish I would have had all my Grobie friends with me last year....'cuz it was really emotionally straining.


*sigh* I'm listening to Mia Per Sempre.....beautiful! :) GOD!!!!!! LOVE THIS MAN!!!! *dreamy sigh*

Well, I've gotta go get ready for B&BWs...hahaha. I have to be there at 6, but we're going to go early so I can get a mp3 player...since my iPod has been broken all week. :( :'( Not sure how long I'm going to be there either...she said as late as 11....depending on how many people are there to help. :( Then I get to come home and study for French. I've been loading up on the esspresso today so I don't get too tired to study at the end of the night.....

Maybe I should stop when my hand starts twitching..... ::)

Aww yeah, Josh's music has helped to get me through many a troubling time. There's no doubt about that. And if there is one thing I could tell that wonderful man, that'd be it. I know other Grobies like us have felt the power of his voice theraputically as well. Thus, I am so certain his down to earth nature would really appreciate knowing so. :)

I am currently listening to Josh's good friend, Michael Buble. I love this man. ;D


Good like at B&BW! :-*

ok, so homecoming is this Friday/Saturday, right? well, i'm helping build the band float (i know, just another thing to add to my hectic schedule...) i get home from church today and immediately get a phone call that there's not enough people there today to help build. meanwhile i've been down there every day, and i mean every day, except Thursday for the concert and today was supposed to be my day off. so i go down and there's only 2 other people there. arrggh!...they apparently need my expertise in painting. i went at 3:00 and just got home (it's 9:30 where i live). good golly.

and tomorrow is the crazy layout editing day for journalism...it's our first issue, and being a new editor i've never done layout night before. apparently we stay after school until at least 9:30. super duper.

i'm going to be sure to charge my iPod tonight so Josh is ready to go with me tomorrow. oy vey. ::)


good luck at work, Kate! i hope you either get your mp3 player or your iPod gets fixed. my iPod is my best friend...i don't know what i would do without it.

Wow! Staying for layout till 9:30!? Holy cow! The latest we stay is 5 ish. :o

Do you guys have journalism as a class? I guess that's how we get all of our layout done mostly in class.



I LOVE JOSHY ... too much. ::)

God, I'm such a wuss. I've only had to work two jobs for one day, and I'm already buckling under the pressure. I had work from 7:30am-3:30pm today at Starbucks, then took a quick shower, dad and I went to go get my mp3 player. It's the same GB as my iPod, and it's pink, so it should be fine...then I went to B&BWs at 6, and I got out at 12:20. 6 hours a 20 minutes moving shelves and cleaning them on my second day, and I haven't even gone through all my training yet. Why am I such a wuss? I'm sitting here crying, that's why, because I don't even know if I can handle it. I have to study for a French test, my dad tells me on the way home that he is going to give my mp3 player to me in the morning, so I don't stay up all night (too bad I have to ANYWAYS because of my FRENCH test), someone ate the sandwich my mom bought me that I had been craving all night at work, I'm dehyrdated, and I'm more confused than ever. I have no idea if I'm going to fit in at my new job, and it still feels a little uncomfortable leaving my old one. Not to mention at twenty till 11 my dad called me and said that the fact that I was staying too late was "bull shit" and that I had to tell my boss I quite. So, needless to say, I am not a happy Grobie right now. I'm hungry, dehydrated, sad, confused, beaten down, my legs hurt like whoa.....but I guess instead of ranting I'll go study for that French quiz.

How do you say in French, "Please, God, just take me now!" ? :'(

EDIT: Feeling a bit better today, but still pissed at my dad because he did not give me my mp3 player like he promised. Thanks dad. >:( And I have to go to work....just for three hours, but still. I'd much rather go home right now.

Shouldn't be too bad, but I do have to work until 9 tomorrow, and I am definitely going to have to stay up late studying for my World Civ test on Wednsday. But I've got a playlist all ready with Josh/Angelique Kidjo/Ladysmith Black Mambazzo. ;D

so it's 10:09pm and i just got home from school. yep, i was at school for 15 hours straight, 7 1/2 of those hours was spent in the same room sitting, for the most part, in front of the same friggen computer. gah! so i still have to do a buttload of homework (read 7 stories for English and write an analytical paragraph for each, prepare a recipe for Foods, type up my article [mine didn't get printed this issue so i'm very very late meeting this deadline :-[], come up with topics for the A&E staff members because tomorrow is brainstorm day), i have a bug bite the size of Mt. McKinley on my arm (apparently i'm allergic? goooooood.), i'm sleep deprived and extra drowsy from the benadril, i have un examen de francais tomorrow, and as soon as i get home from school tomorrow i have to go help work on the homecoming float for the rest of the night. and i have to somehow manage to fit in cleaning the house for some extra cash...

OY!

[quote]10/02/07 : New Josh Groban Christmas CD 'NOEL' to Be Released for Holidays
By FOJG

BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - October 2, 2007) - Christmas joy arrives early this year for millions of Josh Groban fans as 143/Warner/Reprise Records announces the release of 'NOEL,' the artist's long-anticipated classic recording of holiday songs. Scheduled to arrive in stores on October 9th, Groban is joined on 'Noel' by the London Symphony Orchestra and several guest artists and has once again collaborated with Grammy-winning producer David Foster.


Recorded in LA and the famed Abbey Road Studio in London in between performances of the 26-year-old Groban's "Awake" Tour, the collection of holiday songs on 'Noel' includes such classics as "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear" with Josh on acoustic piano, "Silent Night," "Little Drummer Boy," "The Christmas Song," "O Come All Ye Faithful" with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and "Ava Maria." Groban duets with Faith Hill on "The First Noel," with a choir under the direction of gospel legend Kirk Franklin. In addition, singer Brian McKnight adds his vocals on "Angels We Have Heard On High" and the haunting version of "I'll Be Home For Christmas" features messages from troops stationed overseas.



"I was inspired by all the Christmases I've been fortunate enough to celebrate with my family over the last 26 years," commented Groban. "I was committed to making a classic Christmas album yet one that sounded different than anything that's been heard on a holiday record. David Foster and I were passionate about creating the perfect collection of songs."

Groban, whose collective international CD sales have topped 17 million copies, is currently on the road in Australia where he is continuing his sold out "Awake" concert tour which has been seen by over 800,000 people. He is expected to make promotional TV appearances in November on "The Oprah Winfrey Show," NBC's "Christmas Tree Lighting at Rockefeller Center" November 28th and "Good Morning America" November 30th.[/quote]
i bolded the really important stuff, and italicized a really important thing in his quote. i wonder what we can expect from him this time around. i think it's safe to say that when Josh mentions different, he means different. i'm excited! ;) ;D

The Grobanites Gone Wild and I are trying to get on that show with Josh....*crosses fingers* We promised Oprah we would get her and Gayle 'Grobanite Gone Wild' t-shirts, hahaha. ;D

Gosh. I've only been through 3 days of this mess and I'm already ready for a break. Thankfully, there's only one week until Noel. Hahahaha, ok, so, today when I opened a box of strawberry sauce we use for Strawberries and Creme, I had to date it and it turns out that the throw out date is Oct. 9th. So of course I got all excited and drew a Santa's hat on the box. And then later I got the inspiration to just draw a cartoon Josh wearing the hat, hahahaha. So the girl who opens in the morning is going to be questioning my sanity, hahaha.

Well, I took a break from studying when my hand cramped up. Hahahaha, oh well. I've got my music. But even though I had a pretty decent dinner, considering how I'm been "eating" the past few weeks, I'm still pretty hungry.

I wish my iPod would work though....:(

Have a nice night and safe studying!!! ;D ;D

The giggly school girl in me is coming out!!! After work I went to the Starbucks that's in a Target and I was talking with the girl Erica, who used to work with me at my Stabucks, and she said the guy she works with asked for my number because he thinks I'm cute!! I'm so giggly!!! No one's ever asked me for my number, and....I dunno....I think I'm hoping that this turns into something???? He's cute, and he seems sweet, and apparently he's singing for the American Idol judges (Randy, Paula, Simon) tonight, I think!! Oh my gosh.....the giggly school girl in me is coming out!!! I've never had a boyfriend....so I'm kind of like, "OH EM GEE *squee*" But I don't want to get my hopes up. *calms down*


And dear BOB almighty, speaking of giggly school girl!!! THOSE PICTURES AREN'T HELPING!!!! Beautiful, Colleen!!! I haven't seen most, so that was a great add to my repitoire of Josh photos. XDD And the big one....the one you posted as a link....YES!! YOU ARE CORRECT. THAT HAIR IS JUST!!!!!! *runs hands through it* AMAZING!!!


Hope we get on....that would be amazing! I would die. I've been fantasizing about it all day, hahahaha.


Oh, and those little double espresso shots in the cans that Starbucks distributes? I had one at ten this morning and it's still got an effect on me. WEEEEEEEEEE!! ;D

i'm so unhappy. and not just right now, i feel like it's all the time now-a-days. my friends have given up...they're recognizing that this is our last year togethers, and they've gotten to the "why bother?" stage. i feel alone. really alone. normally i love being by myself, away from the crowds, but i only love it because i do it to myself. it's not so fun being left out, unvoluntarily alone. i have no friends anymore becuase they don't bother to include me, yet i bust my butt to do stuff for them all the time.
i think i'm mad at life, my life at least. i feel like i just keep doing the same things over and over again...on big cycle. and i don't know how it happens, but i always end up with the crappiest friends and end up getting screwed over. and it's not just friends, it's school and extra curriculars and the stress of college hunting and my parents and youth group and my siseter...it's piling up and i don't have the strength to keep it from crushing me. i need to let go...i want to let go! to just throw in the towel and become a vegetable, but i'm too afraid. i really wish i wasn't so afraid...

is there any good left in the world?

Megsie----Oh gosh, I hope so too. I've waited so long for someone to come around....I really hope I don't make a fool out of myself or that it turns out to be nothing. I will definitely keep you posted.


Colleen---I know all too well what it's like to have friends with the "Why bother?" attitude. In the last few months of my senior year, it was like no one cared about anything, including my feelings, and I found myself sitting in the Chapel/cafeteria alone just so I could get away and "talk" with someone who never did stop caring. I know it gets really stressful this time of year, with college searching and whatnot....trying to make your parents proud, getting everything done in time to graduate.....it all gets to be too much, I know, and then there's no time for you to have some down time, whether its relaxing at home or out with friends.
Senior year I really figured out who my real friends where, and now that I don't have school everyday with those people, things have been a little bit easier. I mean, life isn't a utopia right now or anything like that, but I have noticed a difference. If these people are not treating you right, and do not seem to care for your feelings, these are the people you want to let go of after high school, unless you can see yourself getting along better in college.

You can do it girl, don't let these things control what you do or don't do with your life. It can be so damaging...I know from personal experience. But, only you know what's best for you, and it's your choice to make, whether you stay with these people, whether you decide to keep truckin' along, etc. Remember that you are loved!!!! Megsie and I are here if you need us. :)



OK...random little comment: That picture of Josh "running" with the football....does anyone else think he looks incredibly FIT and muscular?!?! I mean, I am not saying I like the big muscular guys, but Mr. Josh Groban looks VERY healthy!!! :) *is a geek*

I love the "stars" in the background. So cool!

lol! i loved that too. it was really cool when the pictures overlapped when it did a cross fading thing...the stars looked like they were throughout the room, not just on the back wall. ;)

Jess, you haven't been around for awhile. how's life been treating you?

DAYS!

I am so excited!!!!! :) I can't wait until Starbucks comes out with their Gingerbread latte....then I can travel to Starbucks with 'Noel' (AKA, what I forsee being the best Christmas CD EVER!!!) blaring in my iPod as I get my coffee! Hell, I'll do it starting tomorrow, too. ;D ::) That is if my iPod starts to work? I got a new one, and it won't sync about 100-200 of my songs...so I have more on my computer than on my iPod, even though it's 80GB, more than my old one. ::) I'll have to tinker with it today.

Hmmm, that was a lot of rambling. I forget what I was going to say.....
Cripes. >:(

Josh was on Australian Idol this past week.
http://www.australianidol.com.au/video.html
wait for it to load (after the commercial plays), the scroll on the right until you see the one that says "Final 8 The Week That Was."

tomorrow!

oy, that was annoying...all that [ color = red ] [ / color ] nonsense. ::) haha!

EDIT
oooooooooooo, gingerbread latte. those are HEAVENLY! i cannot wait until those come back...do you know when they will?
well, i'm getting "Noel" and a caramel (well, maybe vanilla) latte. yummy. :)

BLAH! Allow me to apologize yet again. Who knew that the final steps to applying and getting ready for college and being a senior would be so time consuming! Gracious!


And if Kate just cursed over the amazingness(not a word, I know) of this video, I will watch asap! ;D ::)

MIRACLES DO HAPPEN!!!!!


I feel like running a marathon!! 'Noel' is beautiful!!!! I went to go get the Special Edition but they were out when I got there, but the lady said she would reserve one for me, so I'll have to go back tomorrow, because I don't have time now....I have a Government midterm to study for.....too bad I can't concentrate AT ALL!!! I am just too happy about EVERYTHING that's been happening.....


I am SOOO Thankful for Josh and his music!!! This Christmas will be a bit rough, with my grandmother being gone for over a year, and my grandfather remarrying....but Josh's music will help. Aaaaaaand, I'm hoping that Starbucks guy will still be around!! He called last night, and we talked for a bit....we didn't make a date, since we're both extremely busy, but....I'm sure I'll see him around.

You guys will love this CD. Let me know what you think of it!! 'O Come All Ye Faithful' has always been my favorite Christmas song and Josh's version just BLOWS ME AWAY!!!!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on October 09, 2007, 04:16:58 pm

Aw Kate glad you are getting your hands on the special edition. I have to wait all the way to Thursday or Friday to get it! See I am going up to South Bend to visit my brother at Notre Dame and they have a Target there so.... BLAH! I NEED to hear it! ::) ::)

Kate, I really hope this guy turns out to be a real winner for you!

HAPPY NOEL DAY TO ALL! :-*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on October 09, 2007, 05:42:44 pm

oh my GAH! i swear the world does not want me to like Josh. i go to the Target nearest me and of course they are out...of BOTH copies! :P so i have to drive for 45 minutes to the other Target, getting lost and stuck in rush hour traffic along the way, just to get it. i wasn't going to drive there right away, but i decided to call and make sure they had it and they said they only had 1 copy left, so of course i had to go right away. but who cares, it was TOTALLY WORTH IT!

i think my favorite right now is "Ave Maria." i've wanted him to sing that song from the first moment i heard his voice. it's classical and soooooo beautiful. "The Christmas Song" is beautiful too...second to only Nat King Cole's in my opinion. and his song in French...some one catch me! *swoooooooon*

Josh really has his classical, operatic chops geared up to top notch on this album...i normally wouldn't like it that much, but the fact that it's Christmas music makes it beyond ok, it's fantastic! *love, love, love*

Christmas!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on October 09, 2007, 08:15:26 pm

I feel like an awful fan for not having it yet. *sigh* But I will go all over South Bend for that album if I must! ::)

I personally cannot wait to hear "Ave Maria"!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on October 09, 2007, 10:12:33 pm

so "Ave Maria"...i've heard it before. tons of people have sung this song and i love the melody, but i realized i didn't know what the lyrics meant. i did my research...i had no idea it was Hail Mary! lol. not being Catholic, i don't hear these things i guess. weird...i still like the song though. lol!

i just finished watching the dvd too. Josh at his goofiest. i'm convinced the poor guy never sleeps...how the heck else would he get all this done? i think that's why he's so silly all the time too...sleep-deprived. ;D i know all to well the loopiness that sets in when you run on very little sleep. you should have heard me last Monday print night for Journalism...every editor left convinced i was on some sort of medication, prescribed or not. ;D
oy, i'm rambling...i'm starting to crash. caramel lattes in the middle of the afternoon=bad idea. :P

Megs, you silly girl, of course you're not a bad fan! you're as Grobanitious (yay, new word!) as the best! ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on October 10, 2007, 11:54:19 am

Megsie, ditto what Colleen said! You're totally not a bad fan!! Also, thanks! I really hope this turns out to be.....something. :) I let my friend at work listen to his message and she was like, "He sounds so nervous! That's so cute!" :) ;D I had so much energy yesterday....I just walked to work. It was so impulsive, but I loved it. Gave me a chance to reflect, burn some nergy, and listen to my music. :) OK.....rambling.

Tonight will be my 14th day in a row working. :o And then I have to work tomorrow and Friday night as well, but Saturday I am going to Des Moines, IA with some fellow Grobies to celebrate 'Noel' together! I will make sure to take lots of pics, hahaha! It's going to be fun....a great break from the stress of school/work. :)

I got the special edition today...took them long enough to find it in the back, hahaha. But OMJ, Colleen, you are soooo right! What a goofball, and of course I agree....has to do with his sleep-depreive-ed-ness (???). I get loopy like that too...hahahaha, I scare people! ;D I LOOOOOOVED seeing all those Starbucks coffee cups when they were in the Studio though!! Hahahaha!

Alright....off to French class! ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on October 10, 2007, 04:06:08 pm

i hate English class! i have to read a 16 page poem, read 3 chapters of Frankenstein, do 2 close readings, i have a huge paper/project due the 20-somethingeth, i have to read "Our Mutual Friend" by Charles Dickens and do a long close reading on it by the 24th, do notecards of the author/protagonist/antagonist/etc. for every novel we've read so far including summer reading, and i have a rough draft for a paper on Othello & Titus Andronicus due Tuesday. does she 1) not realize there are not enough hours in a week to ever finish all of that and 2) not realize we actually do have other classes.
feel the stress. >:(

in lighter news, i may have just Grobanized my entire French class. we're allowed to share French connections to real life we happen to discover, so i decided to bring in Noel. unfortunately, my teacher was against Christmas music so soon so i couldn't play "Petit Papa Noel" for them, but fortunately i happened to have Closer in my purse, so i just played "Hymna a l'Amour" instead. they loved it! my teacher told me to bring my Noel cd in closer to Christmas time so we can listen to it then. yay! ;D

i just wrote my Josh article for Journalism too...and it's getting printed this issue! it's not the best i've done, but once it's polished up, i'll post it here. ;)

WOO! I couldn't help myself. I went back to iTunes today and had the little clip of each song. Ah! I cannot wait to get my hands in the special edition! But, I HAD to buy Ave Maria! Ahhh! SOOOO BEAUTIFUL! ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on October 10, 2007, 10:51:18 pm

Colleen, I am bottling up my happy feeling right now and sending you some! I hope you get some much deserved YOU time very soon!!


Well......that guy (Chris) just CALLED! And we might be hanging out Sunday night, when I get back from what I'm assuming will be an AWESOME weekend with fellow Grobies! He just has to check to see if he works that night. So, I don't want to get my hopes up!! But still....YAY! He called....again!! Hahahaha.


I've only had two coffees today, too, so I have no idea where this energy is coming from, hahahahah!

I think I might have Grobanized my dad (not as impressive as Colleen Grobanizing her French class, but still...hahahah! ;D). He really loved 'Silent Night' and LOVED LOVED LOVED 'I'll Be Home For Christmas'....he said it was a nice version of the song...'very pretty'. ;D Those were the only songs he heard, so I think tomorrow on the way to school he'll have to hear the other songs. :)

Well.....I'm going to go TRY to fall asleep, but I think I'm just too wound up!!!! ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on October 11, 2007, 10:42:02 am

ok, i've listened to Noel 5 times straight through, as well as quite a few sparatic listenings of select songs, so i think it's time to store it away and keep it fresh for November 23 (the day after Thanksgiving ;)) or until after Pittsburgh's light-up night...i don't know when that is yet, but the radio stations always start playing Christmas music after it. :)

well, i'm home sick from school. last night was soooooo cold at band practice. i was really bundled up too, but managed to get sick anyways....dizzy spells. awesome. so i'm going to try to stay at one place for a long time. computer for a while, then couch to watch tv/read/homework (i have sooooooo much make-up work!), then maybe back to the computer, but that's it. fun.

yay Kate! he called! you'll have to let us know what you guys plan on doing Saturday. :D

the day i would be able to Grobanize my dad...sheesh. if your dad is anything like mine, getting him to even listen to Josh is quite an accomplishment! my dad is do dead set against him. he's rock and roll to the core...that's where i get it. lol i guess i get my love for Josh from my mom...although she doesn't love Josh either. she always tells me "if only he would sing in English more often!" lol! she likes Michael Bublé better. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on October 11, 2007, 11:09:02 am

Colleen, I'll be your sick buddy. I haven't had a day off from school/work in two weeks, so I think exhaustion was starting to settle in...I'll have to call my boss here in a few minutes though, because I'm sure as hell not going in. They're lucky I've stayed with them for this long, considering I technically quit two weeks ago. ::) I am blasting Noel, hahahaha, and I love it. :)

Hahaha, yeah, I most definitely will!! It would be Sunday night, though, because I'll be in Iowa Saturday night, partying it up with the Grobanites! ;D

Well....hahaha, it could be that my dad knows how much I like him that he's just humoring me, hahahaha. My dad is total rock and roll too, and my mom thinks Josh is "Jesus music". >:( Needless to say, she's only said that once, hahaha.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! ahhaha, that's so funny, partly because my mom listens to "Jesus music" (and i'm so not even joking you right now, my sister and i call it that) all the time...worship cds and whatnot. lol! that's so silly.

checked the tv/tour page on jg.com and they have this posted:

11.28.2007 NBC Christmas Tree Lighting at Rockefeller Center
11.30.2007 NBC Good Morning America



oh yayyyy! i hope he sings "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear" so he can play the piano! ;D and it seems like the song he would sing anyways. the beginning always reminds me of "Imagine" though, lol.

so i'm refusing to listen to Noel anymore, right? so what do i listen to now? "Believe." lol. i got myself too much in the Christmas spirit to just go cold turkey!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on October 11, 2007, 11:35:39 am

Awwww, I wish I could go to NYC to see him... :( Oh well....:) I'm sure it will be lovely. :) Ahhhh, I'm listening to 'Petit Papa Noel'. :)

I have not beeing listening to Noel 24/7....just shuffle on my iPod, so I don't think I'll put it away just yet. ;)

Ahhh, Believe. I love that song, but my friend Jessie hates it, hahaha, since she works at a movie theatre and she always had to clean that teatre, and she said its good, but it got annoying after a while. Psshh. Impossible. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on October 11, 2007, 11:59:24 am

sheesh...i've given up listening to Noel and already gave in. but for good reason...i've decided it's my goal to translate "Petit Papa Noël" without just finding the translation online. i found the lyrics online, but listening to it always helps. ;) ::)

C'est la belle nuit de Noël It's a beautiful Christmas night
La neige étend son manteau blanc The snow [something] it's white coat
Et les yeux levés vers le ciel And eyes lift toward the sky
À genoux, les petits enfants On knees?, the little children
Avant de fermer les paupières Before closing the [something]
Font une dernière prière. [something] a last [something]

Refrain:
Petit papa Noël Little Santa Claus
Quand tu descendras du ciel When you descend from the sky
Avec des jouets par milliers With thousands of presents
N'oublie pas mon petit soulier. Don't forget my little stocking!
Mais avant de partir But before you leave
Il faudra bien te couvrir [something] cover yourself well
Dehors tu vas avoir si froid Outside, you will be very cold
C'est un peu à cause de moi. It's a little bit my fault.

Il me tarde que le jour se lève [something something] the sunrise
Pour voir si tu m'as apporté In order to see if you brought me
Tous les beaux joujoux que je vois en rêve All the beautiful gifts that i see in my...river. (now that's not right...lol!)
Et que je t'ai commandés. And that i asked from you.


Et quand tu seras sur ton beau nuage And when you [something] on your beautiful cloud.
Viens d'abord sur notre maison Come first to our house.
Je n'ai pas été tous les jours très sage I wasn't very good every day
Mais j'en demande pardon. But I ask for forgiveness

Refrain



shew! am i close? lol. *runs to get French-English dictionary*

Post by: Kate06 on October 11, 2007, 03:39:40 pm

Ahh, I remember doing that with his Spanish lyrics.....that's REALLY what helped me fall in love with Spanish....and Josh's music, of course. :)

It was 'Si Volvieras A Mi', I believe....let me try translating those here...

AND OF COURSE! The first link I click on ALREADY has a translation! Hahaha, I'll just come back to it to check my answers....

Como sobrevivir? How can I survive?
?Como calmar mi sed? How can I quench my thirst?
?Como seguir sin ti? How can I go on without you?
?Como saltar sin red? How can I jump without a net?
Con ese adios tan salvaje y cruel With this goodbye so savage and cruel


Me despojaste la piel You ripped off my skin (Literally translated....that's what I remember my Spanish teacher telling me! =0!)
No hay eternidad en final se quedo There is no final eternity that remains (or something like that...lol)
Y un desierto es mi corazon and my heart is a desert

Ay si volvieras a mi Ay, if you would return to me
Encenderia el sol mil primaveras it would light the sun of a thousand springs
Si regresaras por mi if you would return to me
Seria un milagro cada beso que me dieras each kiss that you would give me would be a miracle
Pero hoy te vas but today you are leaving
Y no hay vuelta atras and there is no turning back

?Que habra despues de ti? What will there be after you?
Mas que estas lagrimas more than these tears
Si hasta la lluvia en el jardin if until the rain in the garden
Toca musica sin fin plays music forever
Sombria y tragica somber (sp?) and tragic
Hoy de rodillas te digo adios today I am begging you.....something something....
Que por el bien de los dos that for the good of us both
Algo en tu pecho se quiebre al oir ....(I've never gotten this one!!)
A este loco que se muere de amor ...(or this one!)

Ay si volvieras a mi Oh, if you would return to me
Encenderia el sol mil primaveras it would light the sun of a thousand springs
Si regresaras por mi if you would return to me
Seria un milagro cada beso que me dieras each kiss that you would give me would be a miracle
Pero hoy te vas but today you are leaving
Y no hay vuelta atras and there is no turning back

Y desataste un huracan and you unleashed a hurricane
Fuego y furia de un volcan fire and fury of a volcano
Que no se apaga that can not be put out
Como olvido que fui to forget that i left (....hmm...that can't be right?)
Esclavo de ti (no idea!)
Ya no puedo mas I can't go on....

Ay si volvieras a mi ay, if you would return to my
Vida ay si volvieras life, ay if you would return
Si regresaras por mi if you would return to me
Seria feliz otra vez I would be happy again
Pero hoy te vas but today you are leaving
Y no hay vuelta atras and there is no turning back

my weekend of sickness is being relentless. the room spins every time i stand up...i missed last night's football game and i'm going to miss today's band practice, but i'm going to try and make it for tonight's show. :P oy.

We are going to be in Des Moines, Iowa. :-* Tearin' it up, hahahahaha.
And then of course I have a date Sunday night. :-*



I haven't had a coffee today but I'm really bouncy for some reason. Maybe it's because I didn't get much sleep. I swear....we had the LOUDEST thunderstorm EVER last night....it was like a war zone...seriously! I mean, I love thunderstorms and all that, and it doesn't really bother me, but I don't think I've EVER heard one so loud before....it was like it was happening right by my window!! SO LOUD!!! But....I guess the rain was soothing, hahahaha?

oooo, i LOVE loud thunderstorms. the ones that rattle the pictures on your walls. love!
we've got bright blue skies and 60 degree weather here, a rarity in Pittsburgh. i swear we get about 10 days a year that isn't overcast. ::) i don't mind though...the sun hurts my eyes. 8)

HELLO!

Have I been shunned from the world of Grobania? I do hope not! ;D :-*

I have been apart far too long.

But I am home. And I will not go for that long again. Promise. :)

TODAY I FINALLY got the special edition of "Noel"! ;D I am so in love with this album! Megan officially has a new favorite Christmas album. :)

Kate, I love the pics! How cute! ;D

Do I need to be caught up on anything new ladies? :-*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on October 16, 2007, 10:23:02 pm

Kate, it looks like you ladies had a properly ridiculous time. ;D

Megs, good lord, where the poo have you been? it's been nearly a week! i missed you. :-*

ugh, i have a headache. i've been soooo behind in school, and 2 sick days were not a good idea. make-up work is kicking my butt. i had a four page paper due today that i just started 3 hours ago...think i'm a little late on that? psh. last night was our second Monday night layout night. it went much smoother than the first one, but since i missed 2 days of working on my layout in class, i had to stay an hour and a half longer than what i would've had i been in school in order to make up for the time i missed. oy oy oy.

Josh has gotten me through these past 2 evenings though (and not Noel. i'm so proud of myself for keeping my promise to not listen to it again until after Thanksgiving. it's so far away... :o)

so this is completely irrelevant, but i just figured out that there's over 100 days until the LOST season 4 premiere. that is absurd! i've waited so long already!! i'm dying without my Wednesday night fix.
hey, i just had a though. Josh is a dork like me -- i wonder if he watches LOST...we already know he's at least somewhat of a LotR fan...there's a connection there with Dom. ;)

EDIT
ok, so i'm getting slightly nostalgic here.
you know that thread in the Members section that's about members who "disappear?" i recently posted in there (literally 2 minutes ago) saying how i miss Maria. i check her profile on here and found her last post was Sept. 6 2006. that was over a year ago...how weird! i miss Maria...i hope she's ok. she left pretty abruptly, you know? ???

I really miss Maria too! I think about her a lot. She was such a sweetheart. She did leave abruptly; without warning so I am concerned. :-\

Cool pics, Kate! I'd love to have a group of wild and crazy friends like that.

Which one was it -- Colleen? I can relate, sweetie. I might have to back out of the Georgia trip we've been planning for about a month.

And a question for those so fortunate as to have already gotten a copy of Noel: Which Ave Maria is it -- the Schubert or the Bach-Gounod? (If you don't know the difference, the B-G version has a really high note toward the end.)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on October 21, 2007, 02:40:52 pm

Whew! Feels like I haven't been on in a while....how are my Grobia gals doing?? ;) Glad you liked the pics....:)


I finally have Fall Break Monday and Tuesday....so that will be nice. Just a few more months left until Christmas break.....hopefully I can get through it. *crosses fingers* Hahaha, I really hope it goes by quickly, too. Last fall semester went by tooooo slowly.

OK.....I don't think that really had any point.

But did you guys here about the explosion in Manila, right across the street where Josh was? He was there at the time, along with the Groband....think about how scared he must have been! He's back on home soil now, so that's good. Grobania would be lost without it's Kind. :'( ::)

i'm afraid i have no idea. i could check for you though...i'm sure it's in the liner notes. ;)

oh Kate! don't even think that thought! :o but i thought the explosion happened after he left...terrifying none the less. i'm so glad they all are safe.

i just need to get through this week and i think i'll be ok. i've got a big English paper/project due Tuesday and a "book it" due Thursday. Tuesday is final deadline day in Journalism, Friday is senior night for band and Saturday is championships for band! after all of this, it should be smooth sailing. *deep breath*

It's Schubert's version. :) I adore all versions of the song. Currently, I have 7 versions of the song, Bach and Schubert, by different people. Love, love, love the song!

shew! what a week! but i made it through PIMBA Championships and am no longer a marching band geek! ;) just one more football game and it's all over. ;D

so where is everyone? this thread has been idle the longest in Josh Groban Thread history. ??? everyone still alive out there, or am i the lone survivor?

Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on October 28, 2007, 04:24:10 pm

Here I be! ;D Our marching season (although I am not in band since two years ago) is winding down. It's been quite emotional. ::)


I just found out some fantastic news today! I don't know if this has been discussed before, if so, I haven't seen it. But, Tim Burton brings us Sweeney Todd the movie! Starring Johnny Depp! ;D ;D ;D I am soo excited! Johnny is supposed to be doing his own singing as I am hoping. It should be interesting to hear NWIA now! ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on October 28, 2007, 10:10:55 pm

the end of marching season has been emotional for me too...but mostly because i'm so frustrated and annoyed with everything and everyone involved in this year that i just want to it be over now. and thankfully it is. sweet relief at last. ;D

i am SO FREAKING EXCITED for Sweeney Todd. i absolutely love that musical, and the fact that it is being directed by Tim Burton (what a freaking genious) and starring Johnny Depp certainly makes it that much more fantastic. you can't go wrong with a Burton/Depp combo...the past has shown us that. plus Helena Bonham Carter and Alan Rickman are also in it. AH! i'm so excited. :D
yeah, NWIA will definitely be interesting to hear. it's such a sweet, almost sad song. i hope it's sung as fantastically as Josh sings it. ;)
Dec. 21...Sweeney's coming. (hahahaha, have any of you seen the trailer yet? that part always makes me laugh.)
is there a thread about this yet? if not, i should start one. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on October 29, 2007, 12:41:46 am

Hahahaha! Sweeny Todd was one of the trailors for 'Heartbreak Kid', which I saw with that guy I went on a date with, and I remember thinking, "Don't geek out now, Kate. Whatever you do....don't....geek....out." Oh man....took every fiber of my being....especially when Johnny started singing. *thud* SO excited for this movie! And I can't wait for NWIA either, I remember thinking that too when I saw the trailor, hahahaha.


Oh man....French test tomorrow....Spanish essay.....running errands, making appointments, dropping a class.....gonna be hectic tomorrow! ::)

Have a great night everyone! :) <3

I've been hanging out at Josh's message board quite a bit the past couple of days. They have a thread about "Josh's Angels" -- everyone is "Josh's Angel of _______".

As of yesterday, I am officially Josh's Angel of the Keyboard. Here's the icon I created:

Colleen! You should start a thread if there isn't one or if you haven't already. ;) I'll be a frequent poster. :-*

Can I ask an odd question? Did Josh name his dog Sweeney after "Sweeney Todd"? Lol just a thought. Tell me if this is stupid. ::)

Colleen, I am glad it is over for you with such stress. :-*

Kate, I would have totally gone nuts, date or not. ::) But this was your first date with him, was it not? So I would have been pretty nervous in attempts to contain myself as well! ;D

Aw Aisling, cute little angel you've got there. ;)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on October 29, 2007, 10:39:06 pm

remember when i said the stress was over? i lied...it's only just beginning.

i'm behind 19 chapters in Frankenstein, i've got a French test tomorrow, an English paper due Wednesday, a Journalism portfolio due tomorrow (tonight was print night...i got home at 9:30), today was the last day of the 9 week grading period, i have to ask teachers for letters of recommendation tomorrow, i have to tape myself playing my clarinet to determine what chair i get for concert band, and my youth group that i volunteer a very significant amount of my time to help organize and run is going through a financially difficult period resulting in our unfortunate closure.
yet i'm not stressed out...i don't feel stress, it doesn't affect me. i just know i have a lot to get done and little time to do it. i recognize how extremely difficult it's going to be. it's not the work itself that scares me, it's not getting it done and turned in on time.
i love when it's time for sleep...because that means i have a whole 6 hours to devote to thinking about something other than school. ;)

and yes Megs. little Sweeney the dog is named after the demon barber himself. ;)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on October 30, 2007, 07:32:41 pm

Aww Colleen! That is a lot to get done. But, you can do it! We had to read Frankenstein as a summer read along with Lord of the Flies. ::) Frankenstein is beautiful literature. It's a shame I can't say the same for the latter. ::)

Funny, I too have a journalism portfolio due at the end of the semester. It was print day for us today. Luckily, we got it all done before 4. Now, it's all up to the graphics department. ;)

I am glad you aren't feeling the stress that much then. I tend to be the exact opposite. :-*

And that is so awesome! Should I have known that Sweeney was named after the play? :-X

portfolios are such a pain in my butt. when it's all said and done, i love them! i love how organized everything is, but getting it to that organized state drives me bonkers. it shouldn't, but i'm so freaking OCD that everything has to be perfect before i turn it in. psh.
4?! lucky ducks! i didn't get out last night until 9:30. awesomeness, i swear.

nah, i wouldn't worry. i don't think it's really common knowledge about Sweeney the dog. i just recently found out about it...he mentioned it at the concert before singing NWIA. ;D

And I know, I am the same way when it comes to portfolios. :P

Hmm you know, Josh probably mentioned at the last two concerts, but honestly, parts of it were a blurr. I was far too busy staring at him to pick up on every single word he said, although I tried. ::)

sooooooo...
there was a bomb threat at my school today. fantastic.
and Colleen, the smartest kid in the world, ran out of the room leaving her purse, with her liscense, keys (house and car...and i drove to school today), wallet (with money and my insurance card), iPod, cell phone, and digital camera inside.
bomb threat...wow. we're one of the preppiest schools around and we get a bomb threat. plus there's a football game tonight (at a different school, but still...and oh good, my clarinet is in my locker) and SATs at our school tomorrow. this is ridiculous.
i guess it's a serious threat too...the entire school has been evacuated and it's only 9:30.
oh poo! all my English stuff is in my locker too! i was going to do some insane catching up this weekend, but that's down the tube. gosh.

[quote]Important Notice of Nov. 2, 2007

At approximately 7:25 a.m. this morning an unidentified person telephoned the high school with a bomb threat.

Right now, all students and staff are safe and under the supervision of PTHS faculty. Local authorities are investigating the situation.

HS students will be dismissed at approximately 9 a.m. and will board their assigned school bus. The bus will take students to their homes.

In order to maintain security and reduce confusion, parents should meet their children at home. Students will not be dismissed to parents. Student drivers will be dismissed following the dismissal of all buses. Parents should call the school if they find that their child has not reported home by 10 a.m.

Please Note: Middle School and Elementary schools will still be in session.

Oh my gosh, Colleen!!! How scary!!! Well, at least it's just a threat, and the person hasn't acted----that would have been horrendous. I am sorry, though, that you left your stuff in school. Still.....pretty scary. (((HUGS))) Glad you're alright though.

Argh. Sorry I've been so MIA. I've been busy with school and work and such. ::) Thank goodness it's November though....it feels like this semester went by sooo quickly. Just a month and 12 days left. :-P Hope it goes by quickly....I am ready for a break.

I am thinking I need to take Chris (guy I'm seeing) to see Sweeney Todd when it comes out.

And oh my gosh. Is anyone else SUPER excited for 'The Kite Runner'???? We read it in Senior English and OH MY GOSH. Have you girls read it? SO GOOD. My friends plan on buying a family pack of kleenex boxes and going all together. I have a feeling it's going to be UH.MAZING. Can't wait.

Oh, and that movie with Freddie Highmore? 'August Rush' or something? I saw a trailor for it this morning on TV and gosh....looks SOOOO good.

Hahahahaha, OK. Enough rambling.
How is everyone?? I've missed you all! :-*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on November 02, 2007, 02:17:40 pm

yeah, it was pretty intense. it was a genuine threat too, not just some kids goofing off and making up stories or whatever. very scary.
i just got back from the school actually. they opened it up for students to go around and get our stuff. i got my purse back!! it's never leaving my shoulder ever again!
and apparently SATs and the football game (including the band) will go on as scheduled. *shrugs* i guess they have things under control.

omg, i just saw a preview for "August Rush." wow, that looks so good! that little boy, Freddie Highmore, is such a brilliant child actor. good for him. :) but i'm saving my money for Sweeney. i doubt my mom will be thrilled about letting me go see Sweeney (rated R...you know how moms are), but some begging should get me what i want...hopefully. ;)

SQUEEEEE!

I got Noel yesterday. It is sooooooooo gorgeous!

Haven't watched the DVD yet. My husband hates Christmas music (?!?), so the only way I could listen to the CD was through headphones. I'll watch the DVD while he's at drill.

I also finally got my hands on a plush "Mumble" doll. It's soooo cute! My husband was grateful that I saved my "squee-ing" until we got to the car. ;D

Post by: Kate06 on November 04, 2007, 04:45:32 pm

^^^Mumble doll is like a stuffed animal version of Elijah's character in Happy Feet. I really want one, hahaha. Love that movie.


Eeeeeeeeeeeeep. Off topic, but, I am going out with Chris tonight. We're going to the Old Market in downtown Omaha, to Spagetti Works (I didn't want to go there, because I look like an idiot when I eat Spagetti, but I'm sure they have .....other......stuff..... ???) and then we're going to this new indie movie theatre that's showing two Charles Burnett films, so we're going to go see one. *sigh* I'm excited.....he'll be here in 2 hours and 15 minutes.

And my mom is going to meet him! :o :o Scary!!!!


Someone posted on FOJG that Noel is #1 (according to Billboard) and AWAKE is #3!!! Way to go JOSH!!!!!!!! ;D

Kate, good luck with the date! How exciting! ;D

Way to go Josh! Woo! Finally, more people are getting better tastes in music! ;D

I visited Belmont Abbey College today! I AM IN LOVE WITH IT! I just felt God telling me to go there. It just felt so at peace there. I know it's way off topic, but I just wanted to get that out there. :)

Anyways, I saw the new Josh Xmas CD in Borders the other day... does anyone have it? Is it any good? I'm not really fond of Xmas music.... sooo before I go buy it, some feedback?

(Of course I would come to highly biased Grobanites for my critiques... where else would I go? ::) )

Hmm. Ooh date! Exciting. I love dates. Except not really, I get horribly nervous...

Happy Feet is one of the cutest movies I've ever seen.

Anna----'Noel' is AMAZING!!! I'm listening to it right now ('It Came Upon a Midnight Clear'). I highly recommend it. :)


Well, the date went well. At least, the dinner did. The movie, not so much. I am pretty much scarred for life. Never EVER EVER go see 'Lust, Caution.' Chris and I didn't like it. It was really bad.


Love Happy Feet---I definitely bought the soundtrack, hahahaha.

Didn't get the soundtrack, but I did get the DVD. Sooo adorable -- just like Elijah! And to further clarify for Moonlit Sky, Mumble is a cute little penguin with Elijah's beautiful blue eyes. Yes, what Megsie and I have is a stuffed animal version of that character. So cute and cuddly!

And my favorite cut from Noel is probably "Angels We Have Heard On High"... or maybe "Ave Maria"... ah, heck, I can't pick a favorite! ;D It's just like the ultimate Christmas album.

And my husband is just weird. ;)

I was totally hoping Josh would do a little Christmas tour, but I understand that the King of Grobania must rest sometimes. ::) So, instead of seeing Joshy again, I get to see The Trans-Siberian Orchestra in December! ;D

harumph.

i'm sure Josh is a TSO fan...who isn't a TSO fan? ;)

there's a new video up on jg.com. you guys should check it out, if not just to listen to all the awesome Australian accents. ;D

Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on November 09, 2007, 08:39:39 pm

Ah Colleen we are in the same boat. Really, I am scared to death and tend to get quite anxious over the matter of college. But all of that settled more so when I visited my last college, Belmont Abbey College, like I said before. I feel that God wants me to be there. English or Theology major, I am not sure yet. I want to be a journalist as well Colleen, I think you knew that. Yes, the job will be very demanding. If I decide I really want to get into journalism as a career, I will take an internship for the Charlotte Observer over a summer. But that is a ways off. I will try to focus on the now and near future. Pray about it, if you believe it will help. It has proved wonders for me. :-*


And I am glad you think Josh too is a TSO fan. ::)

Thanks for the info on jg.com! :-*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on November 09, 2007, 08:59:51 pm

it's really stressing me out, and as i've said before i've never felt stress before. this is a new concept to me, to be genuinely frightened by the potential outcome. i've prayed, but i still haven't felt that special tug at my heart that says "i need to be here" yet. i'm visiting a college tomorrow, but i can already tell you that i don't want to go there. and is journalism really what i want to do? i think it is...i love writing, but i don't write news pieces...it's all entertainment oriented, and all the schools i've looked at, somwhere i can get a decent training in the field, have been very breaking story/politics/daily news oriented and that's just not my style. i want to be a magazine columnist, but there's no school for that. and i've recently found this love for my desktop publishing class. we make creative little...i don't know how else to descirbe them but pictures. and i think later we're going to get into making ads and stuff, and i really really enjoy doing that...should i get into advertising? and what about my music? if i go to one of the good schools for journalism or advertising, i'm basically forced to give up playing the clarinet, and i definitely don't want to do that!
these are just a glimpse at the things that go through my head every second of the day. i want this year to be over...to be already decided and accepted and doing well wherever i choose. at the rate i'm going, i'll never choose.
ahhhhhhhh! all i want from life is to go to Paris...that's all. why can't i just do that? :P

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on November 09, 2007, 09:08:20 pm

Aww Colleen relax a little. You usually don't have to declare your major until your sophomore year. Maybe even until the end of that year? You can always have a double major or a minor. You don't have to give up clarinet. I certainly don't plan to. There are always playing opportunities, whether it is at church or even just for pleasure. You could always try to get an internship at a magazine somewhere over a given summer. :-*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on November 09, 2007, 09:29:57 pm

but that's the thing...the colleges i'm looking at have state-wide and even nationally renown journalism programs...i have to know that that's what i want to do from day one. one of them, which i have since rolled out, doesn't even let you decide that's what you want to do...you have to apply to be accepted into the program, which you can't even be a part of until the end of your sophomore year, meaning you might have spent 2 years studying general journalistic classes for a program you're not even accepted into. i've thought about double majors and minors, but if i want to be solely focused on one thing, do i want to waste my efforts on another major that has nothing to do with my desired study? i can't remember the last time i spent for leisure, which also completely rules out my clarinet days (most of the colleges i'm looking at won't let you be a part of the musical aspects unless it's your major), plus i have to get a job to pay for gas and food and i'm looking at getting an internship very soon at a local newspaper.
and you're probably reading this and saying "she's being too negative, freaking out for no reason, and putting way too much pressure on herself," and i'd probably say you're right. but i'm beyond rational thinking now...i've posted in here over the past few months very unhappy with the way things are going in my life...i need to relax, but i don't know how!
and i just got an email saying my college transcripts were misprinted. just another thing to worry about...

Colleen, I hate the stress for you, I really do. I know it is rough. It seems I have been lucky with college thus far. I found out I received a $12,000 scholarship at my desired college. I am pretty stoked, but still stressing. It's quite the process, this whole leaving and going to college thing. But, I am certain I am up for another challenge to get where I want/need to be.

I will keep you in my prayers, Colleen. :-\ :-*

Oh my goodness... college stress. Don't even get my started.

I'm freaking out too.

I have this list of places... and everything is going well. Like in school, I mean. I make good grades, I'm taking challenging courses, and my GPA is good.

So then why do I still stay awake at night in an anxiety attack over if I'll get into the place I want to go.

Oh why does society do this to us. All of this college stress.

My dad (don't get me wrong, I love him) is really beginning to irritate me. Like, I mention a school and he has to be all "US News and World Report Best Colleges List". I'm like ... ratings aren't everything. I mean, last I checked, Georgetown University is a damn good school, is it not? Nooo.... its "average" in his book.

What kind of sick pressure is that to put on your daughter.

And the thing is, he doesn't know he's doing it. He just routinely make these proclamations that keep me awake at night. I should just write "YALE OR BUST" on my shirt and then they'll send me to counseling.

I'm of the persuasion that you can get an excellent education anywhere.

So following that advice, I'd say don't freak out.

Unfortunately, that would make me a total hypocrite. I hate being a hypocrite.

Anyways, enough of that.

I'll definitely buy Noel when I get the chance!

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, i feel ya sister! the case is my freaking mother. she's all "Colleen, you need to really get moving on this...if you wait to long, you won't get in anywhere." MOTHER! i'm writing my application essay (holy freaking ball of stress right there...), still trying to find others that might be good for me, and worrying about the worst English class in the world right now, DON'T EVEN TALK TO ME ABOUT THIS CRAP, MOTHER! good lord.
my sister keeps trying to talk me out of going to the colleges i want to go to because they are far away (which makes me feel guilty), and i'm just as convinced myself as you are that i won't get into any of them.
i think i've narrowed it down to 2, but i cannot for the life of me choose between them (that is if i get in, which i probably won't anyways...). one has a nationally reknown Journalism program, but it's more serious Journalism rather than magazine/media editorials; the other has the program i want, but it's not as well developed as the other's. one has community showers, but the other has no air conditioning. one is right in the center of downtown a.k.a. the ghetto, and the other is an all girls school. I GIVE UP!!!!

Ugh I know what you mean.

My mom, bless her, is like "You can get in anywhere you try enough to get into"

Whatever that means... I can tell she understands that I'm under tremendous stress as it is and just wants to relieve some of it. Or try to.

My dad though... ugh.

On the one hand, I'm dying to get out of the South. I don't want to go to the University in town, I've lived here all my life. Then again, I don't want to go TOO far away... except all the schools I want to go to are far away.

Really far away.

All girls schools... ewww. I definitely do not want more estrogen in my life, I have enough of it. Boys are always niceto have around, anyway.

Sigh.

Why does this have to be so stressful? Why do we have to worry about acceptance rates, GPAs, and other things.

It makes life suck.

So with talks of all this college stress, I am going back to visit Belmont Abbey College tomorrow. It's about an hour and a half away. Not much of a drive at all, however, I've never driven that far before. Sure, my mom will be with me, but it makes me nervous anyway. Of course if you know me, I can be the biggest case of nerves over anything, and I mean literally, anything. :-\ And it isn't that I am a bad driver. I am actually probably one of the safest drivers I know, honestly lol. *knocks on wood* Eh, I stress over everything.

BUT...I will have Josh to keep me company, of course. ::)

He tends to over come the stress in most cases. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on November 12, 2007, 10:33:08 pm

Oh my! I have been slacking!! *sigh* I've missed you all! :)
Today was kind of my stupid day, hahahaha. I was also really stressing because I really thought last night was going to be the night Chris asked me to be his girlfriend and just make things official, you know? Especially since he really opened up to me last night. But, whatev. ::) It was cute though, I noticed today when I was on his MySpace (I left my phone in his car, so I had to send him a message ::) ) that he put my in his Top 8. Even though I don't necessarily agree with the concept of the Top 8, I thought it was cute. :P
Made the fact that I forgot about a French test today that much better.
Hmmmmmm, what else, what else.
I saw Spamalot on Friday with a friend, and that was fabulous.
I am really really aching for Thanksgiving break....and even more for Christmas break. I am registering for my classes tomorrow, and I also found out from my advisor that I can get 5 free credits from my department (foreign language), so that will definitely help. I just really want this semester to be over, hahahaha. It went really fast at first, but now it's just dragginggggggg.
Well.....I should get to bed. Have a great night, ladies!! :-*
*BIG GROUP HUG*
I know you ladies will do so much better with college than I did when I first started. Trust me when I say that going into your first semester of college worried and convinced that it's not going to be fantastic will just make it worse. My 1st semester, I was miserable. I missed high school sooooooo much, and I missed all my high school friends and I was working all the time and I was dealing with the worst case of depression I had ever dealt with, and that really had an impact on my school and social life. So, just stay positive----I know that you girls have so much more opportunities than I did as far as college goes. I only had two choices for colleges, and my parents couldn't afford one, so technically I only had one chance.
If I could go back, I would.....even though it really helped shape who I am today, there are things I regret doing (or not doing....), and now I have to make up for it.
You girls will do awesome-----I believe in you!! :) Hang in there and turn up the Josh really loud!

I want to see Spamalot! Especially where Clay Aiken is playing Sir Robin now. ::) That'd be so great.

Anyway, I have been busy, busy! Worried about college still, of course. ::) But I really appreciate your words of encouragement, Kate. Thank you. :-*

ugh, my eyes are so puffy right now. i had an allergic reaction to something, plus i've been reading for the past 3 hours straight. ugh.

i'm exhausted, both physically and mentally. Thanksgiving break cannot come soon enough.
but knowing my English teacher, she'll give us some 300 page paper to write over break to be turned in the day we return. she's a really pleasant person, i swear... ::) :P

Kate, you have no idea how much what you said helped me. gave me the strength to read one more chapter in my book, it did! :D *hugs* what would i do without you?...all of you? seriously.

Anna -- i was so caught up in the moment that i forgot to say welcome back! it's been a while since we saw you around here...glad to hear from you again! :)

oooo, i have so many new pictures of Josh that i need to post. i'll get to that tomorrow if i can stay awake long enough. ;)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: elwoodsgal18 on November 13, 2007, 11:12:15 pm

Haha, thanks for the welcome, Colleen. It has been a while, I've missed you all so much! :-*

By the way, I know what you mean about unpleasant english teachers. Mine has assigned us 5 essays so far and has returned 2 of them. Now in any other case this would be fine with me, but no. Not here. Not when your grade in the class depends on how well you do on these essays. And this is a very picky woman. I write an essay that would get an A in any other class and I get a B-... and so does everyone else. But whatever, it's a learning process, we go with it... but I just fervently wish she would not continue to STUNT the learning process anymore. Grr.

Anyway, so we can edit the essays... one a week. So by the end of the semester, we can only edit 5 more essays. Or one 5 times. Or yeah, you get the point. So either she gets her fricken act together and grades the papers so we can 1) see how we're doing in the class and 2) get started on correcting them so that if we're doing badly, we can fix it.

Grrrrrrrrrrrr.

I just really needed to vent. Sorry about that... :P

I know what you mean about Thanksgiving and homework. My AP Chem teacher is threatening us with a massive review packet... which frightens me... a lot. Partly because I don't want to have a huge chem review packet to do over my favorite week of the year, and partly because I'm afraid I won't know how to do half the stuff in there. My chem teacher likes to make things... lets say ... challenging in the packets she types up.

The funny thing is, we do practice AP tests (already, I know) and theyre about a billion times easier than anything she's ever given us.

Oh well.

Enough school.

Haha boys... making the first move. I once dated a guy who just decided I was his girlfriend. He asked me to homecoming (cute) and then kind of let it float and then after Christmas break (3 months later) answered the "Are you two dating?" question with an affirmative. Needless to say... I was shocked. But oh well, I went with it.

Haha. Memories.

[/quote]

I'm afraid I'll have to disagree with you there.

I wasted three years of my life getting an associate's degree in computer technology (had to re-do the first year because they changed the curriculum), only to find out it's pretty much useless. I mean, I'd be talking to a recent high school graduate about it, and he'd say "You went to college for that? I learned that in eighth grade!"

My technical writing (online class) final consisted of material we hadn't even covered.

My programming "teacher" basically read the book to us and expected us to figure it out for ourselves. One day, I actually came out and asked him why he was even there. He just shrugged. If it weren't for a couple of my classmates, I never would have made it through that class.

Sorry, just had to add my two cents' worth -- since that's about four times what my degree is worth.

So what kind of job do I have now? Security. One I could have gotten with only a high school diploma. (Okay, Aisling, shut up already!)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on November 14, 2007, 04:41:20 pm

Aisling, I am sorry that didn't work out for you. :-\ Where did you get this degree?

So lately I have been on Joshy overload. Like I have said, he tends to pull me through a great deal. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: elwoodsgal18 on November 15, 2007, 09:29:05 pm

My apologies, Aisling, that was a really broad statement to make. I'm sorry you had that experience, that sounds awful. My last year's math teacher was like that... she just read the book and I learned NOTHING.

So yes, I take back that statement. It was foolish.

Joshy overload is never a bad thing! I've been listening to a lot of Josh as well, he helps me get through the mounds of homework I'm assigned.

My chemistry teacher is getting really into this "integrating the two lobes of your brain" thing. We do all these crazy body movements and stuff and write long equations with our non-dominant hands and stuff.

I think it's because her son last year got into a horrible car accident and obtained awful injuries and is now severely brain damaged. So now she's into all this brain research. It's really interesting. She said that if you move when youre learning youre brain retains the information a lot better. She said that there was a woman who experimented by having her class knit instead of take notes, and everyone made an A. So that's interesting.

After we did the exercises, she put a Mozart CD on when we were working on a worksheet together. It really made the environment more relaxed. She knows AP Chem is stressful enough, she just wants us to chill out. I think it's nice of her. A lot of people think she's going insane.

Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on November 15, 2007, 09:35:13 pm

Aw that sounds really neat Anna! The brain is truly amazing. Just another amazing miracle of God. :)

This Saturday, we are decorating the house for Christmas! This is pretty early for us, but it is never too early to me to get ready for Christmas. I love everything about it....including the Noel album that will be blasting throughout the house. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: elwoodsgal18 on November 15, 2007, 09:40:05 pm

It is pretty cool. What's really amazing is that she managed to get through that situation whole. Once though, when she saw an awful car wreck on the way to school (she lives 2.5 hours away) she broke down crying in our class.
Nobody really knew what to say/do.

Haha it's still a tad early for Christmas in my book. I'm excited for Thanksgiving! It's my favorite holiday... I just love being with my family and eating. Haha. Food is awesome.

I still need to get Noel!! I just need to wait until I have money haha.

So you're thinking about Bellmont Abbey College? Just out of curiosity, what do you like about it?

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on November 15, 2007, 09:46:41 pm

Gosh that's terrible! Poor woman. She sounds so awesome though. :-\

I love Thanksgiving as well. It's a great holiday! ;D

Yes, I think I am going to Belmont for certain. When I visited, the president spoke and he was such an impressive man! The people were so welcoming. The campus is beautiful and the location is great, just 15 minutes from Charlotte and an hour and a half from home. Not bad at all. The programs are great too. A lot of clubs that interest me and good chances for internships at big newspapers and ministries and such. I love how it is Catholic based, as am I. But I also love how people of all walks of life attend. It's not only Catholics, yet everyone seems quite respectable.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: elwoodsgal18 on November 15, 2007, 09:56:01 pm

That's awesome, I'm really happy that you found a college that fits! I have a list... but I dunno. Everything's just up in the air and I'm freaking out, because the junior year is the most important and all that stuff... I'm just freaking out. I have so many hard classes (4 APs and one honors) and I'm afraid that I'm going to drown. I mean, I'm doing well... I just... don't know if it's good enough to get into the schools I have on my list.

Agh.

School.

Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on November 15, 2007, 10:05:09 pm

Haha, now that is my logic. Amen to that. ::) God and Josh. No one else, haha. ;D

Thus far, I am thinking an English major, with my love for writing and all that. If not English, then Theology. I love both and I could do similar works with writing for both, so I am not 100% sure yet. :)

oh my goodness. what a freaking stud. the unbuttoned shirt is back, he had that confident air, and that transition to the piano was so smooth.
he looked great, he sounded great, and he seemed genuinely happy. it's those smiling eyes, they make me melt every time. did anyone else catch them for a brief second, just after he finished playing? ooooo.

and, from the jg.com website:

Thanks for all the videos and info Colleen! I appreciate it! :-*


EDIT :


Oh and I am sorry, I thought he was presenting an award, but actually he presented Celine Dion! I love that woman beyond words. ::)


Oh and did anyone notice on the caption when Josh came on in that "soulja boy dance" video that it said "Josh Grobin"? Argh!

Interviewer: Is there an asshole inside you, maybe?

Josh: I think... medically there's an asshole inside all of us. (Both laugh)

Josh: I think... medically there's an asshole inside all of us. (Both laugh)

ETA: As of about five minutes ago, "You Are Loved" is my ringtone. ;D
[/quote]


MWAHAHA! That quote right there proves that Josh is the man. ;D

EDIT:

Oh and I too have that ringtone! It is a good one! ;D

Oh I've missed alot again!!! I'm getting pretty horrible at checking up on this thread....and I feel bad....since it's my favworite! :) ;D


I haven't seen the AMA clips yet, and I'm going to miss the Tree Lighting on Wed. night due to work (BOOOO URNS!) so I'm really missing out on a lot of Joshy goodness! :(

But I've been seeing pics and WHEW!!!!!!!! MAH SWEET LAWD! *fans self* Even if he does appear to be wearing bronzer in some of those AMA pics....he is one good lookin' hunka hunka burnin'......*stops self* OK.....get a hold of yourself, Kathleen. Breathe in....and out.....deep cleaning breaths.....very good....


OK....I should really get to bed....I am way too wired for it to be 11:20 in the evening....with an 8:30 class tomorrow. YUCKY.

sorry i've been so hit and miss with you guys here. it's just been one of those...er, months. :P :(

did anyone catch Josh on Oprah today? she did a behind the scenes of her Favorite Things episode and Josh sand "Drummer Boy" with Tariqh on guitar. he did ammmmmmaaaazzzziinnnggggg. he should perform that song live more often. wow. and i think Oprah has a crush on Tariqh. haha.

and she also mentioned that her website contains a special "internet only" performance, so i went to check it out. now i have never, ever ever cried during a song in my life...ever, unless it was being played during something sad, like a sappy movie or a funeral, and then it's the things happening that makes me cry, not the song itself..
but i honestly bawled while watching this. Josh sings "Amazing Grace" and it took me about 15 minutes to get through because i kept pausing it to regain my composure (and you should know i am not a crier, and if i do cry it's very minimal). my grandpa (pap-pap :( ) died 6 years ago, and not a day goes by that i don't think about him. he had the biggest impact on my life...truly an amazing man, it's such a shame i had so short a time with him. "Amazing Grace" was always his favorite song and they played it at his funeral. he played the violin, and i have a picture of a violin with the sheet music to "Amazing Grace" as the backdrop. Josh embodied everything i've been feeling these past 6 years in that one, seemingly impromtu, performance. wow. wow...

his performance of "Silent Night" is up on thatjoshgrobanguy.com, and the "Drummer Boy" and "Amazing Grace" performances can be seen on Oprah's website:
http://www2.oprah.com/tows/pastshows/200711/tows_past_20071127.jhtml?promocode=HP11
(scroll down a little...you'll see his picture)

oh yeah, Paula Deen was on today's show too, and i just love her. ;D


here's to hoping your day was better than mine... :-*

Well my mother sent me a text during my third period class today saying she saw that we missed Josh on Oprah again! I was quite unhappy, but she found some videos and sent them to me. I haven't watched them yet but I think they're from the Oprah site too. :-*

Don't forget ladies! JOSH IS ON THE CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING IN NYC TONIGHT! 7 EDIT - 8 o'clock on NBC!

so there's going to be another awesome XM Radio thing. my dad has XM Radio, so i might actually be able to catch this one. :)

being a Grobanite is really starting to pay off...so much entertainment just oozing from this man. he's a superhero...it's official.

and i just changed my computer's background in Journalism to a picture of Josh. everyone made fun of me. :-[ ;D and for our Secret Santa thing in there, one of my friends forced (literally made my hand write) Josh's name down as one of my activities (we had to tell a little bit about ourselves on sheets of paper), saying keeping up with everywhere he goes is as much of an activity as anything else. hahahaha ;D my friends...at least the embrace my obsession and not shun me for it. ;)

EDIT
ok, so Josh's album apparently is No. 1 on the charts today, having beat out Alicia Key's "As I Am," which i thought was impressive beyond belief.
Access Hollywood caught him on the streets of New York before the Tree Lighting tonight and did a quickie interview, which turned into an impromptu performance on the streets. very cute.
http://www.accesshollywood.com/news/ah7594.shtml
he really is so amazing at interviews. such a naturally good talker. :) but it seems like he gets genuinely nervous singing for all those people on the spot. i guess he really does have stage fright. bless him. :-*

Ah I know! This news prompted me to write a review of the album for our next issue of our school paper! I am so proud of him! According to my journalism teacher, she said she saw the news this morning that he is the first ever to get Christmas album to #1. ;D

a very brief, but none-the-less funny mini-interview from Best Week Ever after the Tree Lighting. i laughed, at least...
http://www.bestweekever.tv/2007/11/30/michelle-meets-tony-bennett-flirts-with-josh-groban-at-the-christmas-tree-lighting-ceremony/
Josh comes on at about 2:04.

some of his appearance dates for different shows have been switched. here's the updated list:
12.03.2007 ABC Regis and Kelly
12.17.2007 ABC Oprah Winfrey Show - Re-Airing of Oprah's Favorite Things
12.24.2007 CNN Larry King
12.24.2007 ABC Good Morning America
12.24.2007 ABC Oprah Winfrey Show- What's on Your iPod? (with Tony Bennet and co.)
12.25.2007 ABC Disney Christmas Special

i think that's all for now.


oh! my parents are getting a new piano (yay!) from Yamaha, and my mom saw this magazine with Josh on the cover on display there and asked the sales lady if she could have it for me! and she gave it to her! yay! there was also this big poster, which i think i posted in here before...she asked if she could have that too when it's time to take it down, and the lady said she'd see. hooooorayyyyyy! lol!

Oh and I wanted to let you ladies know that soon I will take up the violin. I've always wanted to, and my family thinks it is a good idea. I can't wait! I may be getting a violin for Christmas! ;D ;)

*slowly trudges into room* :( :( :(

I have been a horrible Grobanite. I haven't been able to see ANY of Josh's appearances, and my computer is broken so I can't save any of the pictures that are popping up. I had two friends in the front row at GMA and I couldn't even see them waving at the camera, because of class. Not to mention I pretty much got dumepd on Friday. I had a good day yesterday.....I got a pedicure with friends and then we went to dinner and then we went shopping....so that was therepuetic......but I'm getting a cold so that's a huge downer. And I have to work tonight and I really don't want to.......blecccccccccch.

Anyways.........I'll find some pictures to post here to make up for me being such a bad fan. ::)

I love this first one (Ok......I love 'em all):

aww, Kate! there is no such thing as a bad Grobanite! i'm sorry life has been so rough for you lately...things will get better. when life is down, the only way to go is up. :) and all of Josh's performances are on thatjoshgrobanguy.com for you to catch when your computer is fixed. and i saved all the pictures i could get my hands on, of course. so i'll definitely post them! :-*

Honestly! ::) I recorded GMA and I have the Oprah stuff too, oh and the Rockefeller show. GMA was absolutely moving! So awesome. :) And they couldn't have picked a better opener for Rockefeller! But some of the performances were terrible. ::) If you ask me, it could have just been Josh and Celene Dion and be perfect. ;)

Today.....well.....today was tragic. There was a shooting rampage at one of our malls here in Omaha, one that I usually go to with friends. 9 lives were taken, including the shooter's (suicide). So.....that's just been kind of hanging over everyone's heads today....All of Omaha's police force was at the mall, apparently.....it's so tragic....guess my friends and I will be going to a different mall from now on......

Post by: Colleen on December 05, 2007, 10:10:19 pm

aw, Kate! that's so terrible to hear! i'm glad you and your friends are safe, but that is such a tragedy so many lives were taken! :( things like that are so scary. i hope you stay safe.

so i've recently become newly infatuated with the song "Lullaby," which actually is not good because i'm supposed to be listening to Christmas music! silly...
but i like to sing a lotwhen i'm by myself -- in the car, at home, etc. i'm home alone a lot (my family is always so busy), usually almost always after school, and so i thought no different today when i got home. i always listen to music and sing along really really loud when i'm home alone, but today was different...i wasn't alone like i thought i was. my dad came home early from being out of town and was up in his office while i was belting my lungs out. :-[ ;D and apparently i can sing really well, according to my dad. i know i'm not tone deaf...8 years of playing the clarinet ensures that, but i never thought of myself as good. *shrugs* so maybe i won't be so shy about singing in front of people anymore? we'll see. haha.

oh, and my school is really dirty and diseased. the big thing this year is to enforce hand-washing because several cases of MRSA (staph infections, in case you didn't know...gross) and Herpies have been reported in just the past few months since school has started. the football players were getting MRSA, and it even went so far that visiting marching bands refused to march on our field because they were afraid to catch it, and now the wrestlers have Herpies. it's so nasty...my school is disgusting. our custodial staff is completely incompetent and most of the students don't know how to wash themselves. gross. if i even freaking catch any diseases, i'm QUITTING school. i don't know why my school can't just get it together...students making bomb threats, creating "hit lists," and attempting suicide by jumping off the roof all in one month, and now all this crap with diseases. it's freaking ridiculous.


all right, time for something ON TOPIC for a change. ;D
Grammy Nominations come out tomorrow...i know Evanescence's latest cd is nominated for something (don't ask me how...), and it came out back in Oct. 2006 -- there's hope for Josh! i really really hope he gets nominated...he deserves it more than every other artist out there.




oh, Megs. i thought i'd let you know that the Regis and Kelly appearance was posted wrong. it was apparently filmed that day and is going to air Dec. 10. :)

Post by: LleMellon on December 06, 2007, 12:10:51 am

Sorry for never updating you all. Things just got crazy and I disappeared. I ended up producing a musical and starting my own production company for community theatre, on top of working part-time and going to classes. It got a bit insane. I didn't eat, I didn't sleep, I didnt function outside of the musical. I got really sick at times, but I just kept pulling through.

So I'm still alive now on the other side of it. I just needed to come in and let you all know that. I'll also be losing internet access for the next year, pretty much completely. I'll miss you all. It really sucks, but I'll still try to have a happy holiday anyways. *smiles*

Jess, we will miss you! It sounds like you've been a busy bee! If you can spare any time any where, do try not to be a complete stranger! :-* Much love and blessings to you darling! :-*

Thanks everyone. Most of the funeral services for the victims are today, wish I could go, but I have school. I'm sure I'll see a few funeral processions, though. And I'm pretty sure most of the town will be there.


I'm going to apple for another job today. They keep offering me one at the Target Starbucks, so I'm going to talk to the manager today and see what he says.


Definitely changed my answer tone to 'It Came Upon a Midnight Clear'. :) So whoever calls me is going 'to hear the angel sing'. :)

Agreed. I actually heard it on the radio yesterday. But I'm keeping "You Are Loved" because I can use it year round, and because it's such an inspiration to me (and they didn't have "Never Let Go").

So my lovely Grobanites, I must say, I saw the most amazing concert I've ever seen last night. I know, I know, what about Josh? Well he either ties for first or is a very close second when it comes to favorites. I saw The Trans-Siberian Orchestra for the first time. Ever since I was young, it was a dream of mine to see them. Now that I have, I plan to see them every chance I get! I am still on shock from how of an amazing, moving experience it truly was. Plus, I have been in love with the world renown violinist, Mark Wood for quite some time. And to see him live was absolutely breath taking! ;D I would go on, but I know this isn't the place. I only say this because I am curious as to if Josh and Lucia are fans. I am quite certain they are! They just seem the type who would be. ::) ::)

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh. Just ONE MORE DAY! ONE MORE DAY UNTIL I AM DONE UNTIL JANUARY 14th!!!! And it's the easiest final, too: Spanish. I'm just really mad at this girl in my class. When she had a question about what she missed in class one day, I replied right away. Last week, I missed the last day of class due to work ( >:() and so I messaged her on Facebook asking what the teacher went over and the final is tomorrow....NO REPLY! NONE! NADA ZIP! ZILCH! Argh. Oh well.....I should be OK. I love SPanish so....Just gotta listen to SPanish music all night and go through the chapters and my notes....I should be able to wing it if all else fails.

Welllllll.....I FINALLY got the chance to take my computer into the APple store....part of the reason I haven't been posting much (aside from the fact that I've been mega busy) is because my computer broke down, so it's at the 'doctors' office right now. The guy who helped me? Nicest guy ever. Geeky, but verrrry cute! :) I got him a card and a Starbucks gift card for helping me with my computer. It may or may not be flirting but...hey, if Chris isn't going to call me back, I can't wait around for ever! :( Speaking of Chris, haven't spoken to him since last Sunday. I have presents for him (Noel and LATG and a book) and I am kind of curious as to what he got me, and I just really want to talk to him.....soooo confusing!

Work has been sort of frustrating. This one girl just kind of leaves when her shift is over and then doesn't even bother to help clean up. Drives me crazy. Cuz then she gets mad because we didn't do any other stuff that we could have done....uhhhhh, well, that's because we spent a better part of our shift cleanign up HER mess!!!!! It's so unfair....she doesn't like to do dishes....so she doesn't have to. She doesn't like to stock, so she doesn't have to. SOOO unfair! And then she's trying to get me drunk for NewYears and I just wanna scream, "NO! I DON'T WANT TO GET DRUNK!" UUUURGGGH! I just don't see why people can't respect me for MY decisions in life when I respect THEIRS.

Okkkkkk. Venting session over. Time to study! :P See you soon my lovelies! ;)

KATE! I have missed thee! :-* Tomorrow is my last day too - a half day! ;D ;D

I too have been having male problems. :-\ I love a guy I've been on and off with since the end of summer...and we have both had our issues and now he is trying to win me back. It kills me because I want to be strong and be able to say no more, but I realized that I do love him because I can't just tell him to leave me alone. *sigh* I won't vent any more. :-*

Josh makes me feel so much better. I am hoping for one or two Joshy related Christmas/birthday presents. ;)

Kate, I hope it all works out for you with everything! :-*

Aisling, I'd go nuts with missing all of the Josh-Christmas things on television. :-\ At least you have access to youtube! ;D

EDIT:

Josh on Rachel Ray today! Tivo-ed it...haven't watched it yet though. :-*

EDIT 2:

So I watched the Rachel Ray show and Josh was awesome, of course! He sang "The Christmas Song" which was heart warming, and in his interview, when Rachel asked if his mother played his music when he went home for Christmas, he said something along the lines of, "Oh yes, she blasts it! So, I quietly creep in and turn it to some metal Christmas!" It made my heart happy to hear him say he enjoys such a thing, like TSO! Haha. ;D

gosh, even when i'm on break i can't get a break! meh! :P

Jess, good to hear from you. i hope you have a good time on your vacation. traveling with friends is always fun. :)

yeah, the old In Concert, Megs. i had seen the concert part before, but not the "behind the scenes" stuff. fun!
i read somewhere that Chris as only 17 when he filmed that stuff...meaning Josh would've only been 21 when he went on his first tour. is that right? that can't be right...is it? lol because, well, that's INSANE! my sister is almost 21 (her birthday is the day before mine 3 years apart...we have a semi-Josh/Chris thing going on...:) ) and to think she will be the age Josh was when he went on tour for the first time. that blows my mind.
even thinking i'm the same age now that he was when he sang with Celine Dion for the Grammys...wow! i can't even imagine that!

Josh's career really is quite an amazing story, if you sit down to think about it for a bit. i don't think i will ever not be amazed by him. ;D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on December 30, 2007, 01:54:08 pm

Colleen, you're right! It so insane to think that we are so close in age to Josh! I guess it just feels he's in another league, you know? Indeed, his career story is amazing! God has bestowed many a talent to Josh, giving us fans one great blessing of music. :)

so i saw Sweeney Todd 2 days ago.
wow.
"Not While I'm Around" was naturally not as good as Josh's, but that little boy can sing so well!
the movie was fantastic...a little too gory for my taste, but the acting, singing, and cinematography was all brilliant. i really enjoyed it. and couldn't help but think about Josh the entire movie. lol!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on January 02, 2008, 03:54:07 pm

I want to see that movie to badly, but still haven't gotten the chance. I hear it is wonderful. I do fear the gore in it. I hear its a lot. Oh well, I'll suffer through it for Johnny. ::) And I downloaded the little boy's NWIA. It is good, but definitely not Josh. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on January 02, 2008, 04:47:41 pm

the gore was unbearable for me. i honestly missed half the movie because i was hiding under my coat. there's one part (i guess i won't tell you when...) that i closed my eyes for the whole song. it was just one throat after the other. wow.
but i still really really liked the movie, and i can't figure out why. lol.
i'm listening to the movie's "NWIA" right now, actually. i found the myspace...loveeee.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on January 02, 2008, 08:42:29 pm

Oh my! I will be hiding my eyes too! Eck...one throat after the other you say? I think you should tell me when...in a message or something, so that I will be a bit prepared. ::)


Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on January 07, 2008, 05:21:39 pm

hey, guys.

so i went to the doctor today because last night i was having unbearable heart burn. i've had problems with my stomach for as long as i can remember, and they said that there might be something seriously wrong. so now i have to make an appointment with the gastrologist, or whatever, up at the hospital to have a scope done, which is where they take long stick or camera or something and shove it down your throat into your stomach and poke around. of course i'll be sedated during all of this, but and IV scares me just as much as the scope itself.

i'm really nervous...getting more nervous by the second. if there's one thing that i cannot do, it's needles and blood or anything of that kind. and my mom is getting angry at me because i'm getting so upset, which is just making things worse.
plus, i've been put to sleep once before, and it was a horrible experience. i woke up in the middle of the operation in horrible pain and when then when it was all over i was throwing up for the rest of the day because the medicine or something really messed with me and made me sick.

and my stomach is burning and now i have a gross headache, and blahhhh.

you better believe i'll be playing Josh non-stop from now until then...i need some insane comforting, and Josh is the only comfort i know right now. meh. i'm just really scared. :-\

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on January 07, 2008, 09:38:17 pm

Gosh, Colleen, I am going to be doing some praying for you. You'll be just fine and they can figure why you're in such awful pain. And I am certain Josh can calm you down a bit. :-*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on January 08, 2008, 05:36:03 pm

thanks, Megs. i appreciate it. :)
as of right now, my appointment is for Friday, Jan. 18. meep!

well Josh is already doing his part in calming me down. he posted today on the jg.com and FOJG message boards! :)
and his post is so cute. it proves he has his head on straight...and the way he talks and types reminded me of myself (minus a few punctuational errors ;) )...though maybe that's just wishful thinking that Josh and i have something in common. ;D haha!

[quote]Happy Happy Joy Joy (post from Josh)
(02:51am)

Hey Everyone!

Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!! I hope everyone had a fantastic time! I had a very quiet holiday with my family which was much needed. I don't know about you guys but my month of December was a bit on the nutsy side. I'm so sorry not to write you until now but honestly, I had to back far far away from anything that had my face on it and unfortunately this website was included in that category! (it also meant no mocha frappuccinos...I had the jitters something awful).

Now that we've all had a minute to breathe, I am still completely stunned by whats happened this last year. The Awake album was such a labor of love for me but nothing could compare to the experience I had sharing it with all of you on stage night after night. It's the most fun I've ever had touring and I sincerely hope you all had as much fun as I did as we trekked around the world. To all the international fans who came out to see me, we all appreciate it so much. It's been a bit of a slow climb in some markets but it has continued to be a climb and nothing makes me feel stronger in that regard than when you all come out to see a show. The North American tour was insane!! Thats for packing in the arenas! I'm excited to announce that the Awake Tour DVD is coming in the spring and I'm so excited for you all to see it. It was directed by the famous Hamish Hamilton (look him up, he's got the goods) and was shot on half 35 mm film and half High Def so it should have a really multi-textured look to it. We're editing right now and it so perfectly captured the music and energy we shared that night and all year. Many thanks to my brilliant band, crew, Angelique Kidjo (get her grammy nominated CD Djin Djin!), and all of you for making this tour the best ever.

So lets see what else...that about....covers it....oh wait! My friend sent me a google alert the other day and as it turns out, NOEL WAS THE TOP ALBUM OF THE YEAR! You all probably know that but I'm still all CAPS when I talk about it. Seriously though...you came, you conquered, target will never be the same. This album was so much fun to make. The songs are beautiful, the LSO was brilliant to work with, and I hope its something people can enjoy every year (if there are any left). There honestly are no words to express the thanks that David Foster and I have for your feverish support of Noel. Glad you enjoyed it and Merry Christmas.

07 was also a great year for my foundation! My mom wrote a great letter on behalf of our whole family and I want to personally thank you as always for continuing, without fail, to find creative and wonderful ways to raise money for places where a little bit goes such a long way. You have single handedly raised almost 800,000 dollars since the start of JGF which is phenomenal!! I think we can bring that up to the big 1 million in 08. I have so much faith in all of you to make it happen and am so proud of what you've achieved already. I'm also announcing here that I'm putting 1 million dollars of my own money into the foundation to kick it into high gear. I'm also planning to do some performances in 08 with all money going into the foundation so I'll keep you updated on when and where those will be.

2008 will be a very interesting year for me creatively. On the heels of an album like Noel its really important for me to get back into the studio with a fresh attitude and try some new things. I've been writing since the tour and I'm very excited about a lot of the songs. I'll probably start laying down tracks in Feb with all the usual suspects and a few new ones. Not sure yet what the production is going to be like but I can say I've really enjoyed breaking things down lately. The XM satellite radio Artist Confidential show was a blast (airing in a couple months i think) and taking things down to a 5 piece band/string section I felt really brought out a lot in the songs and my voice that I'd like to explore further.

I think thats all for now! To all the fans in South Africa, we will see you soon! Can't wait!

My family and I wish you love, health and happiness in 08. We've all come a long way together....heres to the next chapter.

Colleen---I am sending good vibes your way! I will be keeping you in my prayers---I am sure that everything will work out for you and they will figure out what has been causing you this pain and stress. Keep your chin up, girl! ;) ((HUGS))

Ahhhh yeah! I read that post this morning! It was so cute....but yeah....seriously lacking in commas. But....I won't judge....sometimes my grammar can be pretty atrocious. Eh....well.....at least I don't use double negatives, like the people at my work. I cringe everytime I hear it.....today my boss said, "Ain't never." I was like, "HELLLLLL NO! You HAVE NEVER......NO DOUBLE NEGATIVES unless you are speaking Spanish!!!"

But I think it's adorable that he's donating $1 million of his own money to charity......what an angel. :-*

hey Kate! thanks for the good vibes...i totally felt them. :)
so i just sat here for a good five minutes trying to figure out what the heck Josh is saying in your signature. i could just go pop in the Noel dvd and find out, but that requires wayyy too much work, and i'm having a lazy day.

And Kate, I think it is wonderful he is donating that money too! What a darling! I only contributed like three bucks...since I purchased that bracelet (which I wear every day :)) online. If I had more money, I would totally give more. :-\

i actually like double negatives, but only if they are used properly. like if the user was meaning to be witty or purposely confusing...then i think it's so clever. :D

i've read Josh's post a couple times now, and it always makes me want to get out my blue pen. it's very well written, it just needs a bit of rearranging. ;)

alright, i think we're all officially dorks here. we need a new topic. ;D

tell me about it. i just got home from print night for our newspaper...it's 8:30.

so i've decided Josh definitely need to do a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."
for those of you unfamiliar with this song, here's what i believe to be the best cover of it ever:
http://youtube.com/watch?v=AratTMGrHaQ&feature=related

it's also been remade by the likes of Rufus Wainwright, John Mayer, and Gavin DeGraw, though i've never heard the latter two's respective versions.
it's a fantastic song...one of my favorites, i think it's safe to say. i would fall to bits if Josh ever did it. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on January 10, 2008, 08:35:37 pm

Ah yes, Colleen feels my pain. Eh, print night you say? Good times. ::)


Oh I love that song! My favorite is Rufus Wainwright's version, most commonly heard in Shrek. Honestly, that is the first time I heard it and loved it ever since. ::)

If Josh re-made that song....oh my! I would probably fall over crying...or something....yeah. ::)


Oh how I love Josh. ::)

Post by: Kate06 on January 11, 2008, 12:38:14 pm

Well.....hahaha, I just CRINGE when I hear, "Ain't never. I can't believe she seen me." Seen in the wrong context ("I seen her at the mall") is yucky.

They pounded grammar into our heads during high school, and they made us write essays for everything (we had to write essays in gym and math, even), so I know the rules, kind of. But I can NOT, for the life of me, proofread my own work.....I always overlook things....so of course I look like a huge hypocrite when I type, hahahaha, because I miss things! But fortunately, since I put Leopard on my MacBook, it has spell check for everything, so that helps. ;)


Megsie---I totally know what you mean....if I had more money, I would certainly give more than, like you said, 3 dollars. As part of the 'First Year Experience' class I had last year (required in college, I guess. :P), they said that you should donate SOME of your money to charity, not a lot, but when you can, because then it gives you the feeling that you're doing something good with your money instead of wasting it on credit cards (eeeeevvvvvilllllllll) and stuff you don't need.


SOOOOOO!! Semi-exciting news! For Christmas, one of my 'Grobanites Gone Wild' friends made a video of our story, from when the GGWs first began in Chicago, up until Omaha and our Noel party. So we sent it to the moderator at FOJG, annnnnnnnd......we believe that it is being sent to JOSH HIMSELF! AHHHHHH! We are all SOOO excited!!! We're hoping for a phone call, hahahahaa! And we're also sending a copy to Oprah, because we think it's something that she would enjoy!


Ohmygosh. Panera's Caramel Latte is amazing.....


Oh, and.....I wish all guys could be like Josh. I don't know about where you guys live, but the guys here are kind of WIMPS/JERKS/LIARS. We do NOT breed "nice farm boys", just to clear that up. >:( ::)


Colleen-----uhhhhhm. I don't remember what he's saying, hahahaha! I know what I WROTE in my siggy....what I WISH he was saying....but I can't remember what he was actually saying, hahaha.


OOO!!! ALSO! Last night was amazzzziinnnng!!!! Have you ladies heard of the AMAZING author Jodi Picoult?!?! Well, my friend Sarah and I LOVE LOVE LOVE her! AND we got to see her last night!! We made t-shirts and EVERYTHING! We got the fun fans of the night award!! And we're making a shirt for HER!!!! AND SENDING IT TO HER!!! AHHHHHHH!!! Here are some pics:

That is such exciting news about GGW! I wish I was a part of something like that. :-\

Welllll!!! She has ALOT! Her latest novel is Nineteen Minutes, which centers on bullying and how it can lead to a catastrophe as a school shooting. I started with My Sister's Keeper, though, which a lot of people do. And she also has a new book coming out March FOURTH!!!! I can't wait!!! :P

Awwww man! That's too bad......but yeah, you go right ahead and chuck that book! Last night when we were standing in line I heard someone behind me say, "I are."

i feel really stupid sometimes. i love movies and music and television (well, not all television, just Lost, Pushing Daisies, Monk, Gilmore Girls, Full House, Boy Meets World and The Wonder Years) so hardcore it's ridiculous -- i mean i have a favorite director, actor, actress, screenplay writer, music composer, producer, and everything silly like that -- but i don't have a favorite author. i should...music and film can, at times, be mindless entertainment, and i'll be the first to admit it. i should be smarter than that...i should want to expand my mind more with novels than i do, but i dont. i like reading, it's not that i don't...i just feel like i'm cheating myself by liking visual arts so much. but i guess it's just not my thing as much as it might be other people's thing.

random rant, sorry.
sidenote: i bought the Associated Press handbook today. i already love it. *hugs it*

sidenote #2: i recieved an acceptance letter to my college of choice today. i'm very excited...and i feel the laziness already setting in. i'm accepted to college, so why bother with high school anymore? ;)

expansion on a previous topic: i don't speak and/or type correctly all the time either...i think that's pretty much impossible. it's a conversational tone. i'm a firm believer in separating conversational diction and professional diction. mixing the two can make you appear like a know-it-all or like a slob.

Kate, thanks very much! Sounds lovely. I will have to check that out.

Colleen, loving visual arts is quite understandable. It is easier to "do" than reading. And I can be the same way at times. Truly, I am an classic literature junkie such as Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, etc. But then again, I am the individual who reads any grammar/writing books I can find for pleasure.

And the Associated Press Handbook is awesome! I have one too! ;D


Agreed on the conversational/professional diction. There is definitely a difference.

And major congrats on the college acceptance! I have been accepted to two of the four colleges I applied to. I find out from the other on the 22nd and the other wants my transcripts after this first semester. I am keeping my fingers crossed on Appalachian State.
;D


EDIT:

Would Josh think we (I...lol) are dorks, or what? ;D ;)

yay, thanks! as of Monday when we send in the deposit, i am an official prospective student at Point Park University, which is practically 2 feet (i guess that's an exaggerration...it's more like 20 feet. ;)) away from Carnegie Mellon University (which i would kill to go to if i were more musically inclined), where Josh studied for a semester. ;D ;D ;D

i'll definitely work on that. ;D

i stood in front of and spoke into a microphone on the very stage Josh himself stood on and sang into. it's like looking through Einstein's microscope or using Mark Twain's pen. :)

Aw thanks for the link, Colleen! :-* I LOVE Josh with the Spanx under wear. ::) It looks like he found a ton of goodies! ;D And in one picture he is holding up a bag that says something like , "Redefining Beauty". I think Josh has already defined that quite excellently if you ask me. ::)

oh my gosh, i am the worst fan ever!

not Josh fan -- Orlando fan! i completely forgot today was his birthday. :o i NEVER forget. wow.
my Orlando obsession has taken a big blow since Josh came into the picture...and it doesn't help that he hasn't been in a single movie since PotC.
well, happy birthday to him anyways...maybe this forgetfulness will be my wake-up call to get on the ball again.

I couldn't have said it better myself! Every year, his birthday has been on a day, since I was in junior high (way back lol), that I have been in school. Normally, some friends and I would buya piece of cake or something at lunch and sing for him and celebrate (with some odd looks from other students). ;D

Eh, Orli, do something! :-[ Josh, look what you've done! No one but you would be able to take me from my Orlando obsession. But I love you for that in some strsnge way. ;D ;)

Okay sorry, I just wanted to get the joy out there. :)

HOLY MOTHER OF PEARL! THOSE PICS ARE AMAZZZZZZING!!! I LOVE the one where he's wearing yellow. He is positively GLOWING. HAhahaha, and the drunk shoes!! Love it!! Those were some GREAT choices....Colleen....I agree, green is a good color for him. Josh and I have similar features, and green is one of my favorite colors to wear, so I'm not surprised it looks good on him....in fact, he looks smokin'!!! I'm just "Kinda cute", hahahaaha.

Post by: Colleen on January 16, 2008, 03:02:07 pm

the one where he's wearing yellow is one of my favorite pictures of him of all time. simply angelic.
the green one is fantastic, definitely. that shirt with his dark hair and pale complexion make his skin look like porcelain. gorgeous. :)

I hate men. Hate hate hate hate hate hate men. (Except for Josh!!!!!!) HATEEEEEE!!!


I can't believe how immature they can be!!! There I was last night, sleeping, when all of a sudden I got this HUUUUUGE cramp...I was just writhing in pain. Once THAT was over, I checked my phone and there were two new texts. One was from a number that wasn't in my phone, but I did recognize it........it was my old manager's phone number. What did it say? Oh, it was beautiful. It said, "Chris says its voer between you two!"

Uhhhh.....what?


So I looked at the next message, from Chris, that said, "I decided I can't be in a relationship with you Kate were two different people."

Seriously? It's 11:45 and I'm TRYING to sleep because some of us have SCHOOL in the morning. SERIOUSLY?!?! A TEXT MESSAGE?!?!

Post by: Colleen on January 17, 2008, 08:58:51 pm

aw, Kate. *hugs* boys suck. don't let him get to you. if he was a jerk enough to do that to you, he didn't deserve you anyway. Josh loves you more than he does, so really things work out pretty well. ;) :-*

i'm in the midst of a breakdown right now...i'm having a conversation with one of my friends through IM this very moment and just letting it all out.
and honestly, i think it might only be making things work. i knew things are tough right now, but i guess i didn't realize just how much everything sucked until i pull it all out and examine it. i need to graduate...i need to get away and relax for once.

think of me tomorrow. i'll be spending the majority of the day in the hospital. :(

Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on January 18, 2008, 01:21:35 pm

Kate, I am so sorry. :-[ Men can be very shallow and cowardly! Don't worry, if he is that low, there is MUCH better out there than him. :-*


Colleen, good luck today! I know you'll be just fine and will feel much better upon your recovery. :-*

Oh and I thank you greatly for the previous picspam! It is so gorgeous! In the second picture, Josh looks like a president or something, riding in their limo. 8)

That's not a man, Kate -- that's a boy. If he were a man, he would have broken up with you in person, not by text message.

Forget this jerk and go find yourself a real man.

Oh, and by the way:



I saved this one on my computer with the title "WHOA!" ;)

hi everyone. *collapses* yesterday was rough...i'm glad it's over.

Aisling, that picture definitely evokes the response of "whoa." it's from the Awake photoshoot, but i had never seen it before.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on January 19, 2008, 10:27:54 pm

here's how it went down (i'm just copy and pasting from an email i sent...):

the hospital was pretty freaking horrible. that was one of the worst experiences i've ever been through. i've never been able to handle needles very well, so the anesthetic was frightening to begin with. and after the procedure was over, my throat was ridiculously sore and i was sick for the rest of the day because of the drugs. one of the nurses said it would make me nauseous, tired, and weepy for the rest of the day...i spent the whole day on the couch or next to the toilet, crying the whole time.
horrrrriibbbbble.
but the consensus is that i have severe acid reflux. i have to be on this medicine for a year and have a very strict diet. the bottom half of my esophogus is severely damaged and my stomach is completely torn up. gross. and i have to go back next week to get my galbladder checked. if there's something wrong with it, i need to have real surgery to get it removed. oyyyyy.

so basically all real food (they gave me a "restricted" list, which includes pizza and all tomato-based foods, fried foods, citrus foods/drinks, COFFEE [they CANNOT take my coffee away from me! :'( ), and carbonated beverages...basically anything fun...) has been taken out of my diet. no more fun...forever. i can scratch Chef off of my back-up plan, should Journalist fall through... :P

that's probably more than you wanted to hear, but whatever.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on January 19, 2008, 10:33:35 pm

Be strong darling!

Post by: Colleen on January 19, 2008, 11:00:52 pm

you're sweet. i really appreciate it. :)

i'm just so frustrated by it, you know? just when somethings are starting to even slightly let up a bit, everything immediately begins to plummet again.
i'm so over it all...i'm beginning to become apathetic, which isn't good but i can't help it.

eh, whatever.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on January 20, 2008, 10:04:52 am

Yes, it is very understandable that you feel that way. Don't worry, things will look up soon for you! :-* Go listen to some Josh or watch his DVDs. Perhaps that could brighten you up a bit? ;)


EDIT:

So I popped up my MSN Messenger page and lo and behold, a video was the bottom of my screen called something along the lines of, "Josh Groban screams for charity". Haha, check it out loves. :-*

i have a question/favor to ask.

i've been reading up on Josh, and i found that he sang "Johanna" from Sweeney Todd at Hollywood Bowl 2005, and "Maria" from West Side Story at Katie Couric's event for the launch of The Jay Moynihan Center in NYC, and i was wondering if any of you had either performance or know someone who has that performance in an mp3 format that i can put on my iPod. i've heard "Maria"...it's on thatjoshgrobanguy.com, but i can't transfer it to my iPod from there...and i've never heard "Johanna."

thanks. :)

omg, you guys!

so Josh performed at Sundance yesterday or two days ago or something, right? i've heard that he sang "To Where You Are" and recieved a standing ovation. look at this picture...it was taken right after he finished singing! look at that gratitude...there are tears!

[IMG]http://i31.tinypic.com/j81bfl.jpg[/IMG]

i don't know if it was the song and it's meaning, the emotion he felt while singing it, or the standing ovation at the end that made him cry, but that is the sweetest thing in the entire world. i love him. :-*

Oh my! That picture....alright GALS, GROUP HUG WITH THE KING!!!! (And of course individual hugs, heh heh heh)

Well, more computer problems. Harddrive crashed again, everything was erased and don't think I'll be able to get all my music back...iTunes won't let me get it again, since I re-downloaded it already, after the last time my computer went kerplunkety. We'll see though....one of my friends offered to send me some of the songs that I used to have, if we need to, and I guess I can always do the tedious work of going through all my CDs and copying my music back on. ::)


Colleen----I am the same way with Spanish. I have the Idiots Guide to Intermediate Spanish, like, 5/6 verb/grammar pocket books, an English-Spanish dictionary, I've kept most of my Spanish text books, I have a comic book that's in Spanish, that's supposed to help you learn it with questions after each comic and such, I have a Spanish pun book, and a whole plethora of Spanish reading materials. Hahahaha, I think it's safe to say that what really pushed me in the direction of translating was Josh's "Si Volvieras A Mi" That was the first Spanish song I ever translated (err...tried to, hahaha! I know it all now though, :P).

Alright gang, time to go to the best class ever....Music of the People: Rock & Pop. WOOT! :P

Harddrive crashed again, everything was erased and don't think I'll be able to get all my music back...iTunes won't let me get it again, since I re-downloaded it already, after the last time my computer went kerplunkety. We'll see though....one of my friends offered to send me some of the songs that I used to have, if we need to, and I guess I can always do the tedious work of going through all my CDs and copying my music back on. ::)


Colleen----I am the same way with Spanish. I have the Idiots Guide to Intermediate Spanish, like, 5/6 verb/grammar pocket books, an English-Spanish dictionary, I've kept most of my Spanish text books, I have a comic book that's in Spanish, that's supposed to help you learn it with questions after each comic and such, I have a Spanish pun book, and a whole plethora of Spanish reading materials. Hahahaha, I think it's safe to say that what really pushed me in the direction of translating was Josh's "Si Volvieras A Mi" That was the first Spanish song I ever translated (err...tried to, hahaha! I know it all now though, :P).

Alright gang, time to go to the best class ever....Music of the People: Rock & Pop. WOOT! :P

Kate, you can buy a program to re-transfer the music on your iPod to your computer again. It is really helpful. I had to get it when I got a new computer. :-*

And I wish I could say I was the same with my foreign language, Latin, but it is a bit of a dead language. Of course, it means a lot to me, being Catholic. Plus, I think it is a beautiful, yet very complicated language. I've only taken Latin I and II.

My sister and cousin took Spanish in high school; my cousin went on to earn a degree in it. I took German in college.

Guess which one of us ended up moving to an area with a large Hispanic population! Ay, caramba!

I just adore the English language. There is so much one can do with it. But don't get me wrong...my heart completely melts when I hear someone such as Josh or Sarah Brightman sing in a foreign language. ::)

And speaking of Sarah Brightman...I just saw this amazing commercial advertising her new album, "Symphony"! It looks amazing! I can't wait to order it! ;D

i was home sick from school yesterday. i watched The View (gag me), and Sarah Brightman was the guest. i still don't like her...she creeps me out.

dude, i'm posting on a commercial break of the recap episode, right before the SEASON 4 PREMIERE OF LOST!!!!!

shut up, i'm so freaking excited! aaaahhhhh! ;D

so why am i posting?

Rawr. >:( Men can be so disgusting. That guy I dated? He was in American Idol. His behavior totally shocked me. I had no idea he couldn't sing, and that he was alllllllllll about getting his spot in the spotlight. It's sickening how hard he worked to get that far when he couldn't even sing, and when there are plenty of other talented singers in Omaha that could have had more focus on the show and who could have made it! I have two friends that auditioned in the first round (and they're both FANTASTIC!!!!) but didn't make it through those auditions. Omaha has a great music scene, it might not be exactly what American Idol is looking for (Bright Eyes and the Faint probably aren't pop star material [and I think they're OK with that]), but its there, and Omaha was made to look like a city with hyper-active delusional crazies who can't sing and take up too much time. >:(


OK. *takes deep breath* I'm done ranting.


Megsie----I did get a program like that the last time my computer crashed, but it erased all my songs off my iPod, too, so I'm left with pretty much nothing. :( One of my friends said that he has 8000 songs, so if I get a list together of songs I wasn't able to get back, he might be able to help me out, hahaha...there's bound to be some songs he has that I need, hahaha.

Colleen--sorry you've been sick--I'm right there with ya, girl. I stayed home on Monday and Thursday. My friend wanted to go work out but I was like, "Nuh uh. I get winded just walking up the stairs at a slow rate."


Hmmmmm.....I think this thread needs some more pics! :) (As much as I adore the one that you posted, Colleen, I'm waiting for my computer to get here so I need to kill some time, lol)


Look at those hands!!!




Sing it, Joshy!


Break it down now, y'all.


He's got that guilty, boyish look about him in this one. "Who me? Steal the cookies from the cookie jar? Never! >.> <.< >.>"


"Hi mom!"


Neck. Neck. Neck. Neck. Neck. :-* :-* :-*


I love these colors on him!

Kate, were any of these people you know on television? Like your friends or the ex? Eh, I am sorry about you ex. He sounds like a real loser. :-X

And I saw a few favorites I liked from Omaha, so don't worry too much about it. Not everyone felt it was a waste of time. So far, it is like my favorite auditions. :-* Now South Carolina really, really blew it. Embarrassing much? Psh, I have plenty of friends who would have been awesome. They should have gone.

hey Kate, thanks for the pictures. i adore the one with the brown blazer. check out that fashion sense. ;)

sorry i haven't been around in a little while...i've kind of been obsessing over the Lost season 4 premiere, which was SICK by the way. i forgot to tape it *smacks head* but i've already watched it online 3 times in addtion to the first time watching it on tv. i keep finding new stuff, which arises new question and makes my head totally spin. i'm so excited! :D

Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on February 02, 2008, 04:28:58 pm

That's cool. I watched the first season and part of the second season. Then I lost interest. If I wanted to pick it back up after I missed an episode...I was screwed lol. You definitely have to stay on top of that show. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on February 02, 2008, 04:45:58 pm

definitely, which is one of the reasons this show is so perfect for me. i'm one of those people that just full out obsess about something they like. i like to find out everything about it, and go through a phase where it's all i think about. it happens with everything, honestly, and Lost is so amazing that it always keeps me guessing and gives me something new to look for. no matter how much digging i do i will never find everything, unlike how it is for the other things i obsess over, like Josh or whatever else.

none of that made any sense...my brain is fried. lol

No, that totally makes sense. I am the same way. I was that way about Lost at first. But seriously, everything I am into, I get into it completely, heart and soul. It is no wonder I've been diagnosed with OCD. ;)

I got JGIC for my birthday (which is actually tomorrow). Let's just say I can really see how Josh has matured as a performer between this show and LATG.

I especially liked the little staged tumble at the end of "Let Me Fall" -- that was neat. I had to back up the DVD for a second look to be sure I saw what I thought I saw.

BAH!!! They had to send my computer to Tennessee to be fixed....I had my CLoser CD in there when it crashed....guess WASN'T in my computer or in the box when I got it back? My CD!!!!!! It was the first Josh CD I got.....5 years ago!!! It had sentimental value, which makes me sad in losing it. :(


Anyways, on a lighter note, my friend and her boyfriend are coming over and my friend's going to highlight my hair for the first time in 4 years! I'm excited! I'll show pics when we're done! :P

Ohh No! You lost your Closer?!? A fate worse than death, fer shurr!

Good thing I planned to celebrate my birthday today instead of yesterday -- I woke up with a killer sore throat. It's a little better after breakfast with hot tea, a dose of DayQuil, and two teaspoons of honey. I'm also coughing and sneezing. Must be a full-fledged cold.

Well....I still have the case. :P That counts for something, right, hahaha? It sure is purrrrtty!


Weeelll, the hair is a bit lighter than when I originally wanted....might have to get mine toned darker, too, Kristina. But I might just need some time to get used to it! It has been a loong loooong time since I've done anything drastic with my hair.


Photobucket is being stupid, so I uploaded them to MySpace and here they are:


STEP #1: Wash :P


STEP #2: Dry


STEP #3: Straighten


STEP #4: Put in weird cap thingy


STEP #5: Add lightener/dye!


STEP #6: Rinse and condition


STEP #7: Dry! :)

I think it looks beauitful! My hair is lighter as of yesterday too. But I tend to get coloring and highlights regularly. I love it. It can't be the best thing for my hair, but it sure makes it look better. ;)

So I had yet another dream last night that I met the King of Grobania. *sigh* This was the best dream ever. For some reason, after a show, he felt the need to come meet me, snuggle with me, and take pictures with me. And he even kissed me on the cheek. ::) Oh yes...I am a dreamer.

Kate: What I can see of it looks lovely, but I'd have to see your face with it to really tell. I thought your dark hair was lovely too; I wouldn't have done anything to it. But then, you're not stuck with this "dead-wood" blond-ish color I have. And if I color it, it breaks like glass.

Megsie: You may say you're a dreamer, but you're not the only one! ;)

Kate, your hair looks gorgeous. we have very close to the same tone and very similar curls, but i ususally straighten mine because my hair is so short, it would be a mess! very cute. :)

special treat!
i found this on youtube. Josh singing "Maria" from West Side Story. this is my favorite song from the musical, and Josh sings it better than the original.

Kate, I know how you feel. But I prefer highlights, on myself at least. Probably because I had very blond hair as a kid. I think it makes my pale skin look more tan. ::) It'd be great to see the photojournalism pictures.

he's performing "The Prayer" with Andrea Bocelli as a part of this big In Memoriam program because it's the 50th Grammy Awards.

according to Tariqh's website, they performed last night at the Clive Davis party, and they were the only ones to get a standing ovation. i'm soooooo excited.

i'm watching the red carpet on E!, but so far it doesn't look like Josh has arrived yet.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on February 12, 2008, 10:45:43 pm

So I assume you all watched the Grammys....or at least Josh's performance? I watched from Alicia Keys to Josh and Andrea. And Megsie, you might be able to answer my question, since you know more about Andrea and what his singing style is.....but why was his eyes closed....from his intro through the entire song? It even looked like Joshman was holding him up. ??? It was a great performance, I was just wondering if that was something he always did, or if he just wasn't feeling well. Maybe he just didn't feel like staring at Beyonce and Jay-Z? I can't blame him in that aspect..... :-X ;)

Josh looked smokin, though. I'm glad he got to play the piano a bit. Next year I think they need to get him on the drums.....*fans self* That'd make for a stellar performance. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on February 12, 2008, 11:00:03 pm

i can answer that for you Kate, if Megs doesn't mind.

Andrea is blind. Josh would touch him to let him know he was near by.

the dedication to Luciano Pavarotti was so cute. and i was admittedly nervous about their performance. two men singing "The Prayer"? a little weird...and if they didn't completely blow everyone away (which they did), i could see them being ridiculed for a very long. but goodness, their performance was so captivating and emotional. brilliant job, guys, brilliant job.

i have clips of the performance, red carpet interviews, and tons and tons of pictures to share later. don't let me forget. ;)

omg, how insane was Alicia Keys' and John Mayer's song? INSANE! and John Mayer looked smokin'! i love his hair cut...and gosh, can that boy play the freaking guitar. love him.

Ringo Starr was my favorite of the night. he's so silly. i was so excited to see him there. and the Cirque du Soleil and Across the Universe performances? chills. insane chills. wow.

that was the best Grammys i have ever seen...and i've seen quite a few in my life. i was so proud that Josh was a part of it. :)

But that really just makes me love the two so much more. ;D

I have to agree, Colleen....even though I'm not huge fans of either, Alicia Keys and John Mayer were very rockin'. ;) I might have to download the song off iTunes.

Which reminds me, I have the mp3 of Josh and Andrea's performance of The Prayer, if anyone wants it. :)

ouch.

well, last time i checked 17 isn't middle-aged. and none of the people who post in this thread are at the middle-aged mark, so i can't say your statement is true.

as for being mindless, that's quite harsh. i think you are being closed-minded, personally. do you really have so much hatred for a man you have never met as to attack his fans?

you are entitled to your own opinion, but you are not going to gain much support by posting things like that in here. we all love Josh, and i'm sorry you don't, but we like to keep this thread positive and your comment is the opposite.

i respect your opinion. i only ask that you respect ours as well. everyone is welcome in this thread, if you ever change your opinion about Josh.

i guess drama thrives on all Josh-related threads...there's been quite a lot of insanity on the jg.com boards too...like, a lot a lot. banned members, deleted threads, outraged members leaving in a tizzy. *shrugs* poor Josh has some crazy fans (and haters, apparently).

I guess so. And I think I know why people have been getting all up in arms.....um. A particular video. Possibly with Jimmy Kimmel. With the chance of the "F" bomb being dropped. The video I saw had bleeped out the swearing, so I didn't get the full effect, but even so.....Josh did sound sexxxxxxxxxxxy, and I'm generally turned off by swearing. :o

I absolutely adored the Kimmel skit! It was so funny! I just love his sense of humor. ;D He has a few skits like that, including the "Panda Sex Song" lol.

Post by: Kate06 on March 04, 2008, 08:55:24 pm

I think she has been for a while now. :) I know the Omaha concert was her last one with Josh---she couldn't go on to Charlotte because she was busy with her own plans, and I think that's when she started during her solo tour. :)


I can't remember if I already mentioned it or not....hahaha, but I am very excited!! :)

Oh I understand. The Charlotte show was the make up show due to his illness. I was going to get to go to that show but didn't get the chance. Anyway, I have Angelique's latest album. I really love it. It puts me in an earthy, chill mood. :)

geez, i can't believe i didn't post this yet!

post from Josh on jg.com, which he entitled "SAdness" (no, that's not a typo).


Quote:
Hey Guys and Gals I wanted to post here personally and just say how upset and frustrated I am that things have gone down the way they have in South Africa. As I said in my press statement, its a place in the world that I hold dear to my heart and nothing could have excited me more than the idea of visiting again. I was looking forward to bringing my favorite show ever to the fans but also looking forward to seeing first hand the incredible charity work that, through your help, we have done in that part of the world. Also as you all know, we're really looking and hoping for a rescheduled trip very soon because this trip, like every other, was about one thing...YOU. I'm not allowed to get into any legal details but what happened over there left myself, my management and more than anyone you, a victim of situations that honestly did not show their ugly heads until just the other day. I was rehearsing with my band 2 days ago when I found out we would not be going. I did all I could to let you know when I knew and I sincerely hope that if you made plans you are able to change them in time for the next trip. Speaking of which, I'm going to use this anger at what has happened in a positive way to make sure that what was going to happen this trip will be just the same in a few months and happen the RIGHT way. You deserve nothing less and to have gone ahead the way that our now ex-promoter would have done things would have left myself and you at risk. My team and I will never let that happen. Thank you for understanding and I CAN'T WAIT to get there and give you all a killer show. WE WILL BE BACK. This is from my mom: " It is with profound sadness that we have had to postpone our visit to South Africa and our planned visit to Siyawela. It had been a dream of mine for many years to visit this beautiful part of the world and my desire to visit Siyawela was beyond measure. Andrea and I have been planning this visit for a long time. I felt I was an extension of you all, that I could bring your love and caring with me. But I am happy to say that Andrea is there, full of love and caring, and will fulfill our purpose and that everything we would have done and will do there will be in Andrea's capable hands. Our bags were packed and we were 24 hours from departure when we were told of the situation there. Our shock and disappointment mirrors your own and we hope to reschedule as soon as possible. Josh's last album and our foundation work reflects our commitment to the people of South Africa and with your support and understanding we can fulfill that purpose. -Lindy Groban" More info to come...thanks for your patience josh

Thank you for sharing, Colleen. Wow, I don't think we've seen this sad, hurt side of Josh before. :-\ It really hurts to see him so frusterated. :-[ I hope everything works out. He is such a gentleman; keeping others in his heart before himself.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on March 18, 2008, 08:11:18 pm

k, so here's the deal.
one of my friends from the JG.com boards and i decided we were sick of all of the drama that goes on over there...so we started our own board. :D

i think it could be a lot of fun if all of us joined...that way we'd have a whole board that we can all access and talk about Josh, instead of one little thread.

it's called "Beauty in the Breakdown," homage to Imogen Heap's (who collaborated with Josh on "Now or Never") former band Frou Frou. it's still in the process of being started, so don't mind our dust...we're still working out all the kinks. also keep in mind that there are next to no threads anywhere...we would like for members (if you choose to join) to refrain from posting for a while, until we get things fully set up and ready for full participation. just look around and see what you think for now. :)

So I take it there's lots of drama at jg.com like at FOJG? That's unfortunate.... :( Let me guess....has something to do with the Jimmy Kimmel sketch? People pointing fingers? Telling people how to behave? Passive aggressive remarks? Yeah....lots of that going on at FOJG.....


I added your forum to my favorites, Colleen....great idea!! :)


Have you guys heard the title for the Awake DVD? 'Awake Live'

;D ;D ;D

Post by: Colleen on March 18, 2008, 10:37:35 pm

just a lot of animosity going around, in general. most of it is behind-the-scenes stuff, that has unfortunately been brought out in verbal attacks on the board. very aggressive bunch, those people. you can't go anywhere without encountering a fight anymore. ::)

i hope you like the board. like i said, we're still working on it (and there's a lotttt left to do), but it's getting there. :)

i did hear about the title. now if only we could get a release date... ;)

And I am soo excited about the new DVD!!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Aisling on March 22, 2008, 09:40:45 pm

I have a theory as to why people get all freaked out when Josh says a "naughty" word: A few years ago, when I was working in a record store, people used to look for Josh's CDs in the Christian section. For a lot of people, myself included, "You Raise Me Up" was their first exposure to Josh, and since it sounds like a Christian song, they thought he was a Christian artist. They all wondered why he was in the "Vocalists" section with Sinatra, Dean Martin, and the like.

BTW, that article referenced in Josh's Wikipedia entry should have been called "Who Do We Think Josh Groban Is?" rather than "Who Does Josh Groban Think He Is?" Josh never claimed to be a Christian artist.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on March 22, 2008, 09:45:03 pm

Well Josh is Christian, I forget which branch, but I read it somewhere...seemed like a reliable source. You Raise Me Up can be translated as whatever people get out of it the most. I am almost certain Josh would agree with that statement. For many, it is religious, but I guess you just have to know his music to know that he is diverse.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on March 22, 2008, 10:17:12 pm

ah, beat me to it, Kate. ;) that's great news about Raise 27! and i'm glad to hear he was so excited about it. wish i could've donated...

May 6th works for me! :D

if i remember correctly, the rumor is that he's Episcopalian. he's never said for sure, so we can't be certain. somebody said they knew his parents were that religion, so it's pretty safe to assume he is too. but that's just hear-say and rumors...

as for people's reactions, i've always said that his fans need to chill out a bit. everyone gets so worked up about everything. he's going to do some great things, and he's going to do some risque things...i'm not here for any of that (though it usually is an added bonus...), i'm here for the music. as long as none of it changes the music, i'm good with it. *shrugs*

so yeah, i agree with you Aisling. it's perspective of the fan base...You Raise Me Up, though fantastic for promotion, kind of ruined his reputation. he got classified as contemporary Christian when he doesn't exactly fit in the category.

PS - Megs, i'm drooling over your avatar. ;)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on March 22, 2008, 10:23:26 pm

Haha it's sexy, no? ;)

And personally, as I've said before, I have zero issues with his risque rumor. I am glad he can be comfortable with himself like that.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Aisling on March 23, 2008, 12:14:30 pm

I was a little shocked at first, but then I remembered that, although Josh is a Christian guy, he's not a Christian artist. Lots of Christians use naughty words.

Besides, the only reason some words are considered "naughty" is because someone told us they were. I wonder if anybody even remembers why these words are considered naughty. Still, I have a problem using some of them, such as 'Lij and Josh's favorite "F" word and the "S" word.

That's the problem with the Third Commandment -- nobody can agree on what it means.

Post by: Kate06 on March 24, 2008, 10:53:52 pm

A guy at work asked me once about Josh, "Isn't he a Christian artist?" Uh, no. But I can understand why this guy thought that, because YRMU was the only Josh song he had heard, and that seems to be an incredibly used song among youth groups and other Church events. I think a lot of Christians that like Josh expect him to be more of a Christian artist because his first CD probably had a lot more songs that they identified with as being spiritual/'Christian' songs....but that's just how they interpret the music, which is perfectly understandable....I do it to. But it's a whole 'nother ballpark when they start expecting Josh to ACT like a perfect Christian. First of all there is no perfect Christian (I'll stop before I get a head of myself, I promise). I know Catholics, not practicing Catholics, mind you, but still Catholic, that say some pretty nasty things. I've heard Christians of different denominations use much worse words than the "f" bomb. Hell, if I have a bad day, I might let a few swear words slip. I don't swear much because I really don't pull off that 'I'm really pissed off' thing well, and it all just sounds fake. So I just refrain, hahahahaha. A lot of people just put Josh up on a pedestal and expect him to act exactly to their own standards, when they don't realize that he is his own person---a grown (but still young!) man, musician, humanitarian.....we have to be mindful that he is human, and that WE are human.....nobody is perfect....





WHOA! *cough* *steps off soapbox* LOL.

EXACTLY, Kate!!

It really annoys me when fans put their idols on pedestals and then get angry when they fall (or jump) off. It's just so wrong to condemn someone else for not living up to our standards.

A bit like getting angry at Daniel Radcliffe because he can't really do magic, or Brandon Routh (is that his name -- the new Superman?) because he can't really fly.

People can be sooooo stupid. >:(

I agree on people believing their celebrity don't have flaws. That is crazy.

But the magic and flying thing...I think that is pretty different. If people are like that...they need to be put in the nut house.

To me, getting angry at Josh for not being "perfect" is just as crazy as the magic/flying thing. Makes me want to shake the crazy chick (or dude) by the shoulders and scream "Josh never said he was perfect, you moron -- you did!"

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on April 02, 2008, 11:38:01 am

Well, I think what people are doing is expecting Josh not to be perfect, but to act according to their own standards. I was listening to a few songs from his debut album and it's easy to see why people might classify him as a Christian artist/guy, and so that's when they really start beginning to expect him to continue acting like that guy they first saw/heard, judging him only by their own standards. Like, for them to be happy with him (and this is really unfair to Josh, in my opinion), he has to say (or avoid saying) certain things, sing certain songs, and basically stick to an agenda that's not his own. And it's not fair---not to Josh, not to anybody.


Holy Bob I sound like a freaking psychiatrist. Someone can slap me. This is what happens when you write a 8-10 research paper on therapy, etc. I think if I see the word 'cognitive' again I might implode.


In other news, one of my best friends Jenny had her baby this morning!!! I'm so happy for her!!


Megsie---I'm with ya on the DVD. There is definitely going to be a release party I'm going to with my friends, which is also something to look forward to. Did you see the clip on the news page of JG.com? HOLY JEEBUS. I almost cried. Oh, and the 'Josh in the Box' and the big sombrero.....totally from Omaha. 8) *brushes shoulder* ;D

I may be considered biased, but I love the picture of Josh with JP II. Just beautiful!

And I will be attending Belmont Abbey College, if you all have ever heard of it. It is right outside of Charlotte, N.C. I love it. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Aisling on April 18, 2008, 07:47:05 pm

That pic of Josh sitting on the bed melts me every time. *sigh*

A poster on Josh's board called robingm came up with the term "Popsical" as an alternative to "Popera" to describe Josh's style. So I came up with this:



Popsical -- The only cure for Grobal warming!

Thanx. ;)

And I must make a small correction: her screen name is robinqm, not gm.

BTW, I don't remember who all read my fanfic a while back, but part of it could be coming true. Not the part about being discovered in a coffee bar by Orli, or meeting 'Lij and Josh, unfortunately. But I will be auditioning for a movie next Saturday!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on April 19, 2008, 01:08:51 pm

Oh that is awesome! What movie?

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Aisling on April 19, 2008, 08:21:45 pm

According to my research, it'll be called "Channel Surfing." The director is a guy named Armando LeDuc -- listed on imdb.com as an actor, but pretty small-time. But hey, everybody has to start somewhere, right? After all, our Josh wasn't always "Josh Groban, superstar;" he started out as "that Groban kid." ;)

My guess is this will be one of those low-budget straight-to-DVD things. I don't expect to get famous from it, but maybe it'll lead to something bigger down the line.

Heh, I always thought my first acting job would be a local commercial, and my first movie role would be something like "Woman In Window." :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on April 19, 2008, 11:26:43 pm

Well that sounds lovely. :) And true that about Joshy. That is true about most famous individuals.

Hey who cares if it is straight to DVD? I want to see it. :-*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Aisling on April 20, 2008, 10:45:36 am

If I get the part, I'll be sure to let you know when it comes out. ;)

And I won't mind too much if it's straight to DVD. After all, it's only my first audition. I'll be totally shell-shocked if I get it. And without any big names, I'll be surprised if it gets noticed at all.

I want to see it, even if I don't get it. I know some of the other auditioners from acting classes, and like you, I'd see any movie featuring someone I know (even if it's just from a message board).

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on April 20, 2008, 12:55:59 pm

Hey message board or not, I'd still like to see you in it! ;D

It would be cool.

So, I am feeling the Joshy news is slow these days. Either that, or I am out of the loop haha. 8)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Aisling on April 21, 2008, 07:10:22 pm

Do you post on his message board? You don't have to be a FOJG member to join; it just takes a little while to get approved, IIRC. Anyway, you're more likely to hear any news over there.

BTW, I'm "AislingGrobaniac" on that board, aka "Josh's Angel of the Keyboard."

hey guys! sorry i've been MIA for a while...things have been crazy, and will probably continue to be crazy until the end of the month.
the only reason i'm stopping by is because i have BIG NEWS!!!

guess who made this year's list of People's Most Beautiful. yep, none other than our boy Josh! ;D


:o

i don't know about you, but i'm going out to buy my own copy of People as soon as i can. woo! that's the best Josh has ever looked...ever. *drool*

Post by: Aisling on May 03, 2008, 01:28:27 pm

Yeah, it's about time someone besides us noticed just how dreamy our guy is!

Update on my audition: Mr. "Small-Time Director" has apparently turned out to be a big-time con artist. He was using the "audition" as a front to sell his acting seminar.

I'm furious, but not as much so as my agent. How he managed to completely snow all of us like that is totally beyond me.

Sorry for the double post guys, but it is kind of personal Grobanite emergency.

Have any of you ladies watched the new dvd? Well it is completely gorgeous, except, and I am only hoping this is a default with my personal copy I purchased, but a little over half way through the concert, the sound cut completely off. Right at the crescendo of RWIR, to be exact. I am so bummed!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Aisling on May 08, 2008, 10:04:46 am

None of the posters on Josh's board have said anything about this, so yours probably is defective. Hope you can exchange it.

I won't be able to get a copy until I get an acting job, or after January, whichever comes first. I used all my luxury spending money for a year to pay for my acting classes.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on May 08, 2008, 04:30:18 pm

Well it turns out the DVD player I was using was wacked out. I put it in my computer and it worked fine. Not sure what was going on, but I was freaking out... having a defect in the new Josh DVD is depressing lol. ::)

Hopefully I don't get too many spoilers from the FOJG boards. A lot of people are posting still and using quotes! And some people are still waiting for their DVD to arrive!

Aisling---sorry to hear about the director turning out to be a jerk. >:(


Last final today!! Next fall I am officially going to be a junior in college!! Scary!!! ;D :o Holy crayola my allergies have not stopped bugging me since I got up this morning!!! Grrr!

Post by: Aisling on May 10, 2008, 10:28:09 am

I'm usually in the same situation this time of year, but I've found that a combination of local honey and Zyrtec works wonders. I've been virtually sniffle-free all year.

The trick to the honey is to find some that is produced in your area. (I get mine from a local health food store.) That way, you develop an immunity to the pollen from the plants that grow in your area. You eat at least a teaspoon every day -- on toast, in tea, or just straight from the jar, whatever suits you.

The Zyrtec, of course, is an added protection until the honey starts working.

Have you heard of this yet? :D

Do you know Jimmy Kimmel show? His show is kind of talk show with comedy attitude, and his girlfriend is Sarah Silverman who is also a comedian.

This is all of a big big joke of course, but Sarah made a video where she confesses to Jimmy that she has been sleeping with Matt Damon. As a "revenge" Jimmy made a video where he confesses that he's sleeping with Ben Affleck. There is huge amount of celebrities making fun of themselves in Jimmy's video - including Josh Groban! ;D

Here's Sarah's video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLG3S5WzHig)

and

Here's Jimmy's (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_pFTAY7MF8). (where Josh Groban can be seen)

Dom is there too. You can see who else you spot. ;) Have fun! :D

Josh is too cool for school!! Seriously. He kind of makes me fear and embrace my dorky side. ;) Fear, because, again, he's too cool of a guy!!! :P Embrace, because we all know and love that dorky, playful Josh. :) ;D

Aaaaaaaanywhoozlers. I am going to be in NYC the 19th-24th, and I found out a few days ago that there is a contest a NYC radio station is holding where you can enter to HAVE BRUNCH WITH JOSH!!! Well of COURSE I entered. I don't think I'm qualified to enter though, not being a NY resident, I think. But.....FINGERS CROSSED!!! AHHHH!! What are the freaking freak freak odds that he'd be there the same time I am? I swear I did NOT plan that to happen!!!!! Ooooohhh Lordy!!! Be still my heart!!!!

omg, Kate, STALK HIM! no, for real, if you don't get that brunch (which i so freaking hope you do!!), track him down and don't let him out of your sight. i did that with John Mayer once, interrupted him buying underwear in the Gap. ;D he didn't mind, though, and i'm sure Josh won't either. you find him, and you get a picture! :D

i hope you have fun in NYC, too. have you ever been there? i went there one weekend in May, and i fell in love beyond belief. 3 days there was NOT enough. i will live there one day...i will.

so Josh and his home is apparently featured in INSTYLE magazine. i'll just give you the link from jg.com boards because there are a lot of pictures, but i must say he has good taste. :)

i wonder if Kate got that brunch she entered for? how crazy would that be?

any Josh news? i haven't heard much about him lately. he must be hard at work with that new album, which is fine by me! i can't wait already, and we probably have about a year or more before it's ever released. ::)

Post by: Aisling on July 01, 2008, 11:28:14 am

I feel like a total idiot.

When I got my economic stimulus package, one of the things I ordered was Awake Live. Trouble is, I somehow got the idea it was a live concert, like LATG and JGIC.

Fortunately, I came to my senses in time to cancel the order. Ever since live concert videos/DVDs became available, I don't buy live albums anymore, and I already have the studio version of Awake.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on July 01, 2008, 12:47:44 pm

um, Aisling...Awake Live is a dvd of the concert like LATG and JGIC...
it's really fantastic. the extras aren't quite as good as LATG, in my opinion, but still funny. to be completely honest, i haven't even watched the concert part yet...but i have a good reason! i'm waiting until August 4, the 1 year anniversary of when i went to the concert, to watch it...to sort of relive the night, you know? i've watched "You Are Loved," the beginning number, but that's it.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2

Post by: Aisling on July 02, 2008, 11:56:35 am

I didn't believe a concert DVD would sell for $9.30 brand new; that's more like a CD price.

Oh, well, I guess I'll just wait until I see it in a store.

Post by: Colleen on July 05, 2008, 09:47:09 am

i think i spent around $25ish, so you're probably right, that wasn't the dvd. i don't know, check around...i'm sure you can find it in a store somewhere. :)

just wanted to give everyone an update -- i'm going on vacation this week (to Ft. Lauderdale for some beach time and up to Orlando for 2 days at Disney World! i'm so excited!), so i expect a full report when i return of what's been going on in Grobania while i was away. ;)

It was advertised as "CD/DVD," so it was probably the CD with a DVD of special features, like the studio version.

here's all the updates i found on jg.com:

[quote]2008 All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 15th at Yankee Stadium
Posted: July 8th 2008
Classically-influenced pop-singing superstar Josh Groban will perform “God Bless America” during the 7th inning stretch at the 2008 All-Star Game.

Josh Groban has thrilled a legion of devoted fans with his flawless baritone and extraordinary stage presence. The 27-year-old Los Angeles native first broke through in 2001 with his self-titled double-platinum debut, followed by 2003’s multi-platinum Closer, featuring the smash hit "You Raise Me Up," and 2006’s double-platinum Awake.

In 2007, the Grammy-nominated star became the best-selling recording artist of the year thanks to sales of Awake and his blockbuster Christmas album, Noel — the best-selling album of 2007. Groban has recently released his third live DVD, entitled Awake Live.

Josh just sang God Bless America during the 7th inning stretch at the All-Star game and I happened to be in the bath during it!!! AHH! Thank goodness though, that we had the Tivo running. ;) I will have to check it out tomorrow and I am certain that it will be on YouTube or something. :-*

aw, Megs! i'm sorry you missed it...i was blown away. it takes a lot to blow me away these days, but it seems Josh never fails to. and wow does he look good. ;)

and Kate, where in the heck are you?!

Sorry guys!!!! Life has been so busy!!! June was crazy, with all the traveling I did, and then last week I went down to Missouri with the extended family for camping. :) And it's just been crazy getting unpacked, then cleaning everything up, boxing it up, and moving it to a POD in our backyard. ::) I also have to catch up with work (we started a new phase at Starbucks, so that's been crazy!). I also just got my learner's permit and am working on learning how to drive, hahahahaha. I should have it at the end of the month, God willing. I hope I do, though, because I got a job offer to take two kids to school every morning, and instead of paying me, she'd let me live rent-free on their third floor "apartment". And it's not too far from my school, either. :) Speaking of school, my English teacher from last semester e-mailed me about a Creative Non Fiction course they'd be offering and she waived all the prereqs I would have had to have so I could take it. So, yay!!!! :) Hahahaha, and also, next week I am going to a "Writer's Camp" with my younger cousin, Sarah, who is thirteen. It should be fun. It's just in the mornings, though, and it's right here in Omaha, so I won't be too far. :)

WHEW!

That being said........did you guys see Josh's first blog?!?!!? ADORABLE!!!!!!! Absolutely freaking adorable.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Aisling on July 17, 2008, 11:54:35 am

He's got one up? I'll have to go check that out!

BTW, Moonlit, I've been meaning to tell you: your avatar is awesome. I saved it to my hard drive.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on July 17, 2008, 01:31:54 pm

hey Kate! geez, you have been busy, haven't you? i hope you're having fun with it all and not stressing yourself out too much. ;) and yay for learning to drive! learning is the easy part...then you actually get your lisence and have to spend all your money on buying gas, which isn't as much fun as they make it out to be. ::)

thank you, Aisling! i saw it on LJ somewhere and thought "must have!" it's too perfect. :)
here's a link to the blog. it's so cute, you can tell he's never done anything like this before. should be fun. :D
http://joshgrobanblog.tumblr.com/

so, i just got my Advanced Placement English test scores in the mail yesterday...and i got a 4 (out of 5)! that's ridiculous, considering my essays were probably the worst things i have ever written and they count for 50% of the score...and considering i got a 2 on the year before. and my college recieved my scores and said, because of my AP scores, i recieved 12 college credits and get out of 4 classes of English. :o what?! absurdity.
but i'm kind of confused because i already have my schedule for next year and one of the classes i already have credit for is on the list, and i already completed my first summer assignment for it ::)...so i need to call the office and get everything straightened out. college confuses me...
what is my point for writing all of this? well, i remember for one of my AP essays i mentioned Josh, and so i figured the only way i could've ever gotten that good of a score was that my tester must have been a Grobanite. ;) lol!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on July 17, 2008, 01:36:58 pm

Hahahaha! Yeah, I've been having fun learning to drive. :) And I promised that, since they're providing me with my own car (which is extremely generous of them!), I will pay for my gas, to prove that I'm really ready to accept this responsibility; whereas my brother has his own car too, which was also free for him, but doesn't pay gas and doesn't have a job. So I have two things going for me, hahahaha .;)


Wow, Colleen, that is FANTASTIC!!!! I know those Advanced Placement tests can be uber stressful, so that's GREAT! Good job, girlie!! And what was your Josh essay about? I would have loved to be the one to read it! :)

Well.....off to work for the rest of the day. ;) Have a great evening, ladies. And, of course, it's good to be back. :-*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on July 17, 2008, 01:48:58 pm

yeah, i have my own car and no job...so i don't get to drive that much because gas is a pain to have to pay for without an income.

my essay was actually about Shakespeare's play Titus Andronicus (it had to be something about foil characters and you write an essay based on a novel or play of your choice), and i mentioned something about a character's ability to "command a stage in a truly Josh Groban-esque manner." ;D

Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on July 17, 2008, 06:49:28 pm

Colleen, I got my AP scores yesterday too. I was pretty bummed with a score of 3. My friend who didn't try at all in that class made a 4. But I've never been much of a test taker any way. :-\ But congrats love! I think I receive credit from my college. :)

Kate! A writers camp sounds like SOO much fun! ;D

Megs, a 3 is FANTASTIC! i got a 2 last year, and was expecting worse this year. trust me, a 3 is something to be proud of. :) what AP class did you have?

thought you guys would be interested in watching the All Star game performance again. :)

by the way, i love your signature, Kate! and your avatar, of course. i haven't had Starbucks in soooo long. i miss it. :(

so what's new with Josh. i haven't heard anything in a while.

though, for you Harry Potter fans, JK Rowling announced that The Tales of Beedle and Bard are going to be published for the public, due out Dec. 4th. i'm so excited! :D

so today is the day i've been waiting for and dreading.
today marks the one year anniversary since i've seen Josh in concert. it makes me sad, to think this exact time last year i was sitting in Mellon Arena with Josh just feet away. wow.

so, to mark the occasion, i've been saving Awake Live to watch tonight, and i'm going to start it in a few minutes.

such a sad day...i wish i had a time machine. :(

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on August 05, 2008, 11:10:31 am

aw, Aisling, i'm sorry. one day you'll get to see him, i promise. ;)
i know with Pittsburgh, very few artists come here for concerts because of all the additional fees for the venues. i'm pretty sure the only reason Josh himself comes is because he went to school here for a semester. maybe Alabama is the same way with their venues?

Anna! i think you are the master of randomly popping in here and taking us all by surprise...and we love you for it! how's life been? i feel like it's been so long since we've heard from you. :-*

Josh (and Lucia) will be performing with trumpeter Chris Botti for his PBS special. apparently a bunch of different artists will also be featured in the show, scheduled to be taped at Symphony Hall in Boston at 7:30 pm Sept. 18 & 19. i've heard the special will air sometime in March, and a cd and possible dvd will be released. no word yet on what he will be singing with Chris.

sidenote: exactly 3 weeks until i move in to college. :o

I asked my mom if she knew this guy. She is like yeah, hes a good singer. I am like in my head, ' how do you know this person? and never told me about him!. But, she did said he worked with Celine Dion.. lucky him. :P

Can someone please tell me.. what songs were a hug hit?
Cause my speakers ain't working right now.. and I will like to download to my ipod.. and then listen to it.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on August 06, 2008, 05:49:37 pm

His number one hit, radio-wise, would be You Raise Me Up. The song I have been hearing more and more on the radio is Awake.


And thanks for the news, Colleen! I remember when Botti was the opening act for Josh on his first big tour. It was amazing. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: elwoodsgal18 on August 06, 2008, 11:01:38 pm

Haha, I know I'm quite bad at sticking around nowadays... I just have so much stuff to do with school and music during the year that I have no time for recreation. ::) I'm sorry about that.. the whole not being consistent thing. I've missed all you ladies so much.

Life has been good... quite a lot has happened, but its too much to possibly fill you all in on in one post. I guess it'll just happen in little bits. Right now, as it stands, I'm doing a lot of "soul searching," if you want to call it that, and reading about different things and doing basically what I want to do for the last few days of summer.

As of the past few months I've been writing a long story (novella?). It's kind of catharsis in a way... not in that I'm releasing inner angst or anything, but just in that I'm finally writing down scenes I have in my mind and putting words to a story that's been floating around for a while. I might post it up here to get feedback... it's kind of fanfiction. What do you think?

I'm really angry that I missed that Josh show, even though it was a long time ago. I made a vow that next time he came near, I'd go.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on August 07, 2008, 11:28:27 am

Anna, no need for apologies. :-* Its all very understandable.


Your novella sounds excellent! I know that it must feel like a bit of a release to write down the scenes or thoughts in your head onto paper (or computer...haha). Whenever I need a release or have an inspirational thought, I write.



Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2

Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on August 07, 2008, 11:14:10 pm

Indeed, it does! :)


I am very well. And you? I am about to get into my freshman year of college. I am so excited! Also, if Josh goes on tour, which I am sure he will during my time at college, I will be much closer to an area he normally tours to. ;)

Anna, I was thinking of how long it had been since we've talked. Remember when we first became friends and we had nicknames for each other? I don't recall mine, but I know yours was Annas Precious or something like that. ::) I believe we were chatting during the Academy Awards the year LOTR won everything.

Does anyone else just find themselves watching Josh's video blog over and over? Cause I do. :-*


Colleen and Megsie--awwwww, yay for college! I'm right there with ya in the whole moving out aspect....I'm moving out sometime this week myself, and I am so anxious, nervous, stressed, exhausted, hurried, you name it.....life has become so hectic in the past 7-8 months that I'm worried it will never die down! Work is crazy......to the point where sometimes I just can't stand being there. So I am going to try and find a new one.....

Whoa. Sorry. That got out of hand.
You girls are going to be fine, I'm sure. ;)

Anyways, Colleen, thanks for the info about Chris Botti. ;) *goes back to watching Josh*

Sorry, random Joshy bit there...

Kate, thank you for the well wishes. I am nervous, anxious, excited, and scared. But overall, really looking forward to the experience! ;D

i would also suggest "February Song" and "Remember When It Rained." he wrote both of those. if you really want to get to know him as an artist...i think those are best. :)

Kate, i often find myself rewatching that blog a lot too. glad to hear i'm not the only one. :-[ hopefully he'll post another one soon.

as for moving out, i was soooo excited...before. now that it's getting closer to the time, i'm hitting freak out mode. i don't know what did it...maybe it was contacting my roommate for the first time, but i find myself just looking around my bedroom and getting really sad. this bed that i'm sitting on right now will not be my bed in a few weeks. and i'll be sharing a space, probably the same size as the room i'm in now, with someone i don't even know. it's so weird! i'm just not so sure any more. and i still haven't bought all my textbooks yet, and haven't even started packing yet...i just don't know how this is going to work...*shrugs*

i don't know if i told you guys this yet, but i was awarded an apprenticeship (which is really like a work study program) for the college's student-run newspaper. not to toot my own horn (because i hate bragging....), but it's kind of a big deal...from what i hear, very few (if any) freshman get this apprenticeship. i'm happy, but also really nervous. from what it sounds like, i'll be the only freshman there...what if i'm not ready for it?

wow, so many uncertainties. i sound like one big scardy cat. i'm excited too, just maybe a little more nervous.

Anna -- a novella? that's pretty freaking awesome! :D what's it about?

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Kate06 on August 08, 2008, 01:12:26 pm

I would also recommend 'Awake'. That's his writing at it's best, I think, although it really is super super super super hard to choose.

I hope he does post soon. It was pretty awesome that he posted blogs on my friend's birthday and then on mine. That dude. Just so awesome.

(((HUGS))) Colleen; that's a totally normal feeling. I felt it when I first moved out for my first year of college. There are definitely a lot of uncertainties, like you said, but you grow so much. It was hard for me the first few nights, but it gets better with time, as all things do. Just know that I am with you in spirit, and if you need to rant/vent you know where to find me. No need to feel like your burdening me with anything.....I totally understand what you're feeling, since I'm feeling that stuff right now, too. Megsie; same thing goes for you, too. If you girls need any advice/ranting sessions, you know where to go.

But I feel pretty confident in saying that you girls will do much better than I did my first semester. ;)




Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: elwoodsgal18 on August 08, 2008, 03:03:38 pm

Haha, Megs, I totally remember all of that. The only nickname I can remember giving you was Megsie (which I see stuck ;) ). We were so crazy, it was amazing. ;D

Colleen, my novella is about plane crash victims. I don't know what made me start with that idea, but I did ::). Ummm it's pretty much going to be a love story, as only two people survived (a man and a woman) and as of right now, they're just starting to get to know each other and everything. They both have big secrets and all that. I have about ten pages single spaced in Word now, and Lord knows its going to be a lot longer. I think I might start posting it on here as a fanfic soon. I have a huge thing for James McAvoy now (as you can see by my avatar), so I might just stick him in there as the male protagonist. You know, change the ol' names around.

And congrats on your apprenticeship! That's great news! And no worries, I'm sure you'll be fabulous. :)

how is everyone? i feel like this thread goes too long without updates from everyone.

Haha see I thought the performance was totally cute! He got to show off his goofy-ness and I think he loves to do that. :)

LOVED his performance. If anything, my heart just grew tenfold for him. Amazing. He is so super cute. He did EVERYTHING so well......I find it incredible when people can change their voices like that for certain things...so great! I added it to my MySpace page, hahahaha.

*sigh* So cute.

KATE!!
where in the frakking frick have you been?! i've missed you! :)

Megs, i did enjoy the Emmys performance, don't get me wrong...i just thought it was all so weird. an intentional kind of weird, but weird nonetheless. and very silly.
did he do the voice of Animal from the Muppets? i still can't figure it out. i'm assuming he did, but it sounded so legit. he's great with voices. lol

so how is everyone? i feel like everyone (myself included) has been MIA for so long. what happened?

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on October 06, 2008, 07:47:30 am

Colleen, no worries! ;D I totally understand. It was indeed very silly! And did he do Animal's voice? Oh my gosh! If so, that is so awesome! ;D

You know, college, it being my first year here, keeps me busy. I would, however, really love to get us all back on top of things here! :-*

Post by: Colleen on October 09, 2008, 10:46:44 am

new updates! :D


an collection album of some of Josh's songs from each album is being released in the UK. it will be called, simply, "A Collection," and it will include one "new" song from his Chess performance back in May. i can't remember what the song name is right now, but i'll find out and let you know.
more than likely, should you guys want to purchase it, this will be available on the jg.com store.


also, Josh was on KOST, a radio station based in L.A., on Wednesday to talk about his upcoming work. he announced that his new studio album will be released in 7-8 months time, which takes us to about May or June. he mentioned about wanting to take more time with this album to tweak it exactly how they want it.
i thought it was odd he is shooting for a spring/summer release...he usually does fall releases.

yay! :D

Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on October 09, 2008, 11:26:11 am

Okay beautiful album cover, but I am curiousOh as to why it is being released in the UK and not the US. ??? Oh well. I can handle a little more for shipping. ;)

And THANK YOU SOO MUCH for the news on a new album! Ahhhh! Let the count down begin! 8)

Post by: Kate06 on October 19, 2008, 06:07:30 pm

Hello ladies! Sorry I've been MIA.....life has certainly been busy! And about to get busier! I have to find an apartment ASAP as well as a JOB! Today was my last day with Starbucks, but I have never felt freer. :) This week is fall break, so I'll have some time to search for an apartment and job, and take a bit of a breather. I was there for three years, so I'm just gonna take a small vacation.

All this Josh business has got me acting like a kid at Christmas. I really want the Collection (mostly to stare at the freaking COVER!!!!! WOWZA!!!!). And new CD in spring?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Holy fark. I just melted into Kate-goo. And those new pictures don't help!!!

By the way....if you guys haven't listened to Anthem......you will LOVE it. Hohmygosh. It's hawwwwwwt.

So last weekend I got together with my GGW friends again....here are a few pictures:

Post by: Colleen on October 29, 2008, 04:51:22 pm

i just wanted to make sure i got this posted before they took it down.

Josh sang at the Bridge School Benefit concert on Oct. 26. here are some of the videos:

America
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s8_-bO8Qd7Y

You Are Loved (acoustic)
[new verse! my friend is working on the lyrics...i'll get those to you when she figures them out]
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTnwnpeku5A

Disarm (duet with Smashing Pumpkins)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b9CaIRp2-ME

Harvest Moon (duet with Neil Young)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLUgiCDwtok

and...*drum roll*



yeah, you read that right.

Changing Colors
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDeUKunfwFM
this song is a cover of a song by the same name by Great Lake Champions. their version is on iTunes if you want to hear it. :) even though it's a cover, i have heard rumor that this is legitimately a new song from Josh...as in appearing on his new album. this rumor has been circling for a while, so this video is basically just confirmation. :D yayyy!

*dies from excitement*

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on October 30, 2008, 11:12:42 am

Oh it is just beautiful!!! I get a little upset when good musicians do covers. But, I know better with Josh. He is so original, I feel like it won't affect him negatively.

Thank you for the links! :-*

Thanks for reviving the thread, Megsie. Hope you are doing well. :)

Here are some sexy pictures to warm you up:









SEXY MAN ALERT!

Ladies---I have a request! I am looking for the interview where Johs talks about finding the right girl and 'bathing her in diamonds'......I love that article and think he is so cute. :P If you know where I could find it, hahaha.....I'd appreciate it!!! :P Thanks!!!!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on January 04, 2009, 12:34:44 am

so we all utterly fail at life. the last post was nearly a month ago, and i personally haven't posted since the end of October! yeesh.

i am hereby making a New Year's Resolution for all of us to post in this thread more often. spread the Josh love, people!

so why am i posting in here today? what makes today any special? well, nothing really. except that Christmas is officially over (my mom took down all the decorations today). so that means i can officially listen to Josh!

maybe i should explain. i'm a complete nutjob. no, seriously. so much so that i classify my music by season -- that's right, as in the seasons of the year, summer, winter etc. -- and Josh happens to be classified under winter. since the beginning of winter falls during the holidays, only Christmas music can be listened to during that time. but once Christmas is officially over, as it was today, then my winter music collection can begin to be listened to. it's a very strict schedule, and no, it doesn't make any sense. i'm just crazy.

long story short, i listened to Awake for the first time in nearly 9 months. it felt good, and i'm excited to delve into Closer and the debut soon too. :)

so hooray! it feels good to be back. :D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on January 04, 2009, 01:22:21 am

Good resolution, Colleen.

Sheesh that is way too much effort into keeping myself away from good music haha. I couldn't do it, that's for certain. ::)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on February 06, 2009, 04:02:55 pm

well, we're already not doing so good on this resolution. WHERE IS EVERYONE?!

i just wanted to let everyone know of some Josh events coming up.

tonight, Josh is going to be performing in the MusiCares tribute to Neil Diamond. it's not going to be televised, but i'm sure a video will be popping up on youtube before long.

Sunday, Josh is going to be a presenter at the Grammys, and "Noël" is nominated for Best Contemporary Album or something like that. that category is not televised on the actually award ceremony, and the winner will be announced at a press conference beforehand. but regardless, Josh will still be on the show presenting an award or something.

Monday, Josh is going to be on the Ellen DeGeneres show. he's going to be singing a duet of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" with Ellen. clips of it were shown on her show today...it looks hilarious!

i think there's something else i'm forgetting, but if i remember i'll update this post. hope everyone is doing well!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on February 06, 2009, 10:37:21 pm

I was only aware of the Ellen show, so good call Colleen! I hope you're well, my friend!

I've missed this place.

I miss all of you lovely Grobanites! :-*


P.S. - Even though Josh only appeared for a minute or two on the Grammy's, it was wonderful to see his smiling face. :)

*sigh* page 2.

i miss when this board was in its glory days...i could barely keep up with it then, and now it's a ghost town. :-\

anyways, new blogs:
http://joshgrobanblog.tumblr.com/

he's so funny. :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on May 25, 2009, 08:05:05 pm

Wow...this board...the music section at least...is dead! Ugh, it makes me sad!

Any who how is any/everyone???

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on May 30, 2009, 10:04:47 pm

oh Megs, i know. we're almost to the point where we might have to declare this thread dead at some point. we keep trying to revive it, but no one comes. :-\

i miss it. this board used to be so much fun, but now...i only check in every couple months, and most of the time there are no new posts. sad. :(

unfortunately, i come bearing news that will result in this thread continuing to suffer for the rest of the year.

second video, 2-ish minutes in:
http://community.livejournal.com/__grobanites/1543870.html
if we're not even getting a single until after the Chrismtas, that means we won't be getting a new album until at least Spring of 2010. boo. :(

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on June 03, 2009, 03:27:20 pm

I know. I used to come to this board all the time. It used to be so lively and fun...and not just on the Josh thread.
:-[

And that is a big, big bummer. I need some Josh excitement in my life. Have you pre-ordered his new live DVD?

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on June 04, 2009, 11:02:12 pm

Chess or the Soundstage thingamajig? either way, the answer is no. i know Chess comes out on cd/dvd June 30 and you can pre-order through jg.com, but i didn't know his Soundstage dvd was available yet. did you get it?

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on June 04, 2009, 11:18:01 pm

Honestly, I am so currently detached from the King of Grobania (which is so sad!) that I don't know if anything available now or what haha. But thank you for that date! I will keep it in mind! I'm not going to pre-order...I will just search for it when it comes out.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 21, 2009, 04:58:49 pm

And here we are again, on page 2, not having been posted in for nearly 4 months. :(

i'm going to make one last effort to revive this...please don't let this thread die! or leave me hanging here by myself!

did any of you see Josh on Glee last week? he was adorable and brilliant, as always. :)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0xiTbzkasU

bahaha, sexy. 8)

secondly, Josh also did a duet with Nelly Furtado (i know, right?!) called "Silencio" off her new album, "Mi Plan." it's really really good...not what i expected, and much more pop than i'm used to hearing Josh sing.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd2Ywu7QKM8

oh, i don't know if this has been in the past few months or not, but Josh has a Twitter account now. he's been giving us a few (very very few) tips about the new album and when to expect it...as well as some good hilarity. he's fun to follow:
www.twitter.com/joshgroban

that's all i can think of for now. if you hear any news, please post it here! i'm really really crossing my fingers some old posters come back and get this thread going again.

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 21, 2009, 05:33:11 pm

How the heck have you been, Colleen? Have I ever left you hanging? I had the last post on here before yours haha.

Anyway! I loved Josh on Glee! I am a fan of the show anyway and when I heard he was coming on I nearly wet myself! He was sooo cute! :)

Oh and I am looking the duet up now. Good news that is!!

I follow Josh on Twitter. In fact, I had to take him off my phone updates because he tweets so dang often! >_< haha

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on September 23, 2009, 08:38:57 pm

Megs! i've missed you! i've been well...busy, you know how school is. how are you?
and yes, i know you'd never leave me hanging. :) i'm just wondering where the heck all the other posters went...

i'm waiting anxiously for any more album news. apparently Josh has been in the studio recording vocals. i think he said he would be recording until Novemberish, maybe, but i could be wrong. maybe we'll get more news soon. maybe that will bring some old posters back. maybe, maybe, maybe...

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on November 08, 2009, 09:08:21 pm

Hi everyone!

just a quick update: in case you haven't heard, in anticipation of the new music set to come our way later this year, the JG team has decided to update the website! the new joshgroban.com will be completely redesigned with new photos and pages TOMORROW! if you visit it now, you'll see a preview video.

in addition to that, the message boards for jg.com and FOJG will be merged into one super board.

i'm personally hoping this new website launch means maybe new music clips! eek! :D

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on November 10, 2009, 04:07:27 pm

Ahh! I forgot all about the site redesign! Checking out now! Thanks for the reminder. :)

Post by: elwoodsgal18 on December 10, 2009, 10:55:38 am

Long time no see, ladies!

I'm sitting here, supposed to be studying for finals, when I suddenly remembered about this site and decided to pop in and see what was going on... you know since I spent so much of my time here a few years back haha. Anyway, can I just say that it made me happy to see the Groban thread on the front page? Hells yes. Even though it's kind of deceased, it's nice to see. That, and we have a part 2.

Anyway, I recently introduced my next-door neighbor to Groban. He listens all the time now. I felt accomplished haha, but in reality it was Josh's lovely voice doing all the work.

So how are you doing? :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on December 11, 2009, 01:46:32 pm

Anna! Wow! Nice to see you on here again! Yes, we're still alive and kickin'...sort of haha. I feel like the entire board is struggling...not that I've been posting frequently anymore. I know what you mean...I practically lived on here a few years back.

That is great to hear about your friend! Do you Tweet? I follow Josh on Twitter and he is just so hilarious! Definitely worth a check-out. :)

I too am studying for finals. I'm ready for Christmas break!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on December 26, 2009, 11:38:23 pm

:o

well hello there, miss Anna! long time no see!
i'm glad to hear Josh is distracting you from you studies. he's more important, right? lol, but how did your finals go?

Megs, i'm on Twitter too! fool_on_thehill is my username (yep, as in the Beatles song. :) ) follow me and i'll follow you!
i follow Josh too. he's hilarious. always good for a laugh, but then again he always has been.

have you ladies seen this. SO EXCITING! love to see Josh breaking the rules too. haha
http://joshgrobanblog.tumblr.com/
happy holidays indeed.

speaking of which, can you believe Christmas is already over? i didn't listen to "Noel" nearly enough, and now i've lost my chance. sad. :(

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on December 27, 2009, 08:26:33 pm

Colleen I hope you had a nice Christmas but technically you can still listen to Noel! The wise men don't arrive to baby Jesus till like mid January! :)

So I got the latest Josh DVD for Christmas! Joy! ;D

Thanks for the video! I wish I could hear the whole thing...its so beautiful!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Colleen on December 30, 2009, 12:18:41 pm

Haha, Megs, I guess you're right. I never thought of that.
It's just kind of depressing around here. all the Christmas music on the radio stopped at midnight on Christmas night, so i've just been shocked back into reality. i think i heard Josh's "Believe" and "O Holy Night" maybe twice each the whole season. how sad. this wasn't too festive of a holiday for me.

ooo, which DVD? the Evening in New York one? either way, it's probably one i don't have, so i'm uber jealous! lol. how many times have you watched it? ;)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on December 30, 2009, 10:15:55 pm

Yes it is that one! :) I was excited!

And that is depressing! Oh well I guess it is time to break out the old goods!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: raquel19 on January 02, 2010, 09:37:53 pm

Okay, all I want to say is Josh Groban is ah-mah-zing! I can listen to this man everyday 24/7! I am so glad Celine Dion(right?) discovered him while she was looking for someone to sing The Prayer when Andrea Bocelli couldn't make it. I hope I got the story right :P
I really like the song he wrote: Remember When It Rained :)

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on January 05, 2010, 05:30:40 pm

Yup you've got the story right! Welcome to the thread! It needs reviving! :-*

Post by: raquel19 on January 08, 2010, 11:23:40 pm

Hey, I was just wondering when you go on his myspace profile page, you know that video that always plays at the top? what is the song called?

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on May 30, 2010, 11:52:45 pm

Hey there! So sorry for such a late response! I haven't been on here in quite some time! It's called Machine. :)

By the way, I like your little dedication to MJ! Very nice!

Title: Re:Josh Groban - Part 2
Post by: Frodo_Ubsessed on September 10, 2010, 10:17:14 am

So I miss this place and when I visit I am rather sad at it's slow pace these days. This board used to be THE place to be haha. Anyway, all Josh fans REJOICE!

One, the new album, 'Illuminations' will be released this November!
AND Josh released a song from the album to the public yesterday, available for free download! Visit joshgroban.com for more info on how to get your download! The song is called 'Hidden Away' and it is beyond words gorgeous!! :)
