God help us all, when I first found fandom and discovered Mr. Chasez, I felt like I'd found a kindred spirit. Spazz, indeed.

joeysdramaqueen is heading into town and we thought we'd try to get together for lunch, so we traded a few email messages back and forth this morning and I began to wonder, why is this woman still at home if she's supposed to be Ohio by now? Well, bwahahahahaha! I'm an idiot, because she's rolling into town next week. As I emailed so eloquently this morning, it's a wonder I'm allowed to walk around without a helmet and kneepads. ;-P

In other news, I was surprised to see that a new JC tune has leaked. Did it really leak? Did we - as in everyone but me - know this was about to happen? Anyway, I eagerly downloaded the tune last night. I must admit that my eyebrows may have quirked upwards an inch or so. My first thought was, wow, that's certainly commercial. Not necessarily in a bad way, just very different from the last go 'round. It kind of reminds me of a couple of other songs that I can't think of right now, but the upshot and bottom line (hahaha) is that this is definitely a radio-friendly song. It might not be what we expected, or what some of us wanted, but it's definitely what he needs.

Whatever anyone thinks of the song, you can't deny that he sounds wonderful. His voice has matured, and as someone mentioned, when he dips down in those lower registers, hole-lee hannah! That's one thing I really liked about the song, the way the melody would go down when you expected it to go up and OH MY GOD, I've forgotten every bit of musical terminology I've ever known. My job is making me stupid. Anyway.

I wanted Schizophrenic to sell like a motherfuck3r, but it didn't. I wanted everyone in the world to fall as head over heels in love with JC as I was, but they didn't. The truth of it is that he needs a song like this. If it gets him noticed and if it gets him airplay, I'm all for it. I hope it takes off like a friggin' intercontinental ballistic missile - handy link supplied because I'm just that kind of a geek.

Okay, the Russians are seriously kinky. Here are a few of their missle names, taken from the wiki link.

Specific types of Soviet/Russian ICBMs include:

SS-17 SPANKER
SS-18 SATAN / R-36M2 / Voivode
SS-19 STILLETO
SS-24 SCALPEL / RT-23
SS-25 SICKLE / Topol

Though the Stilleto, Scalpel and Sickle sound intriguing, I want JC to go off like a friggin' SPANKER, man. Apt, given his fanon persona, no?

In other news, my sinuses seem to have purchased a number of finely-wrought miniature silver spikes and are hell-bent on hammering them into and through my nasal cavities. Repeat after me: OW.

A couple of people asked: "I hate asking this, but did Justin ever get this kind of recognition from Newsweek?"

What I found and responded.

I don't know if Justin was ever in the print edition, but he doesn't seem to have had an online review like JC's.

Because I'm a search geek, I went to MSNBC's Newsweek page and did a search on "Timberlake" and "Justified," since I only wanted album reviews or interviews, and not the history of Nipplegate. The following hits were returned.

Thirteen matches for those search terms.

The oldest one is from last October, which is pretty surprising. He's either never been reviewed, or the searches are limited, though that's not stated anywhere that I can find.

To anyone who missed it, the October 23, 2003 one is interesting. Compares Brit and Justin and where their careers have gone since they've separated.

Edited to add: I wonder if entertainment news is limited? Even using just "Timberlake" as a search yielded results for 2003/2004, nothing earlier. A research on "bin laden", however, went back as far as you'd think. Hmmm.

Ah, throw that theory out the window. A search on "Springsteen" gave me a result from 2001. I'd say that Justified was never reviewed in Newsweek - at least not in the online version!

Or at least have enough ready cash that I don't have to work for a living. ::cries:: It was pretty strange being at work today; I think the Chasez knocked everything out of my head. It was like my first day on the job all over again. Loopy and weird! ;-)

Gave the man's CD to the co-worker I'm trying to woo to the sparkly side. I asked if she wanted to see a review first, or jump in cold. She opted to go reviewless.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] charlidos for this one. From www.denverpost.com.

Schizophrenic, JC Chasez (Jive). Justin Timberlake casts a long shadow, as Chasez learned when his Pro Bowl halftime appearance was canceled following Timberlake's part in the "wardrobe malfunction" at the Super Bowl. This album is no hack-job, though, as he's employed house gurus Basement Jaxx and hip-hop veteran Dallas Austin to produce.

Well, the Golden Age of Chasez is over, for me, at least. Seems like it was only yesterday. ::sniff::

From last Friday when I got the album, to last night when I logged off, this has been the most amazing stretch of days since I stumbled into the fandom about three years ago.

JC's always been my favorite, and it's been an absolute joy watching the launch of what I hope will be a long and successful career making and singing his own music. And it's been a *real* pleasure doing it all with you.

Time to go back to work, seeing how I'm not independently wealthy, which is a shame. I'd love to spend my days surfing LJ and writing fic and posting reviews and articles about the Chasez. But I'm a working woman, and this is what I must do. And now, off to work I go.

I love the Chasez more than I ever thought possible, and I love all of you, too. ::kiss::

Man, I'm tired of fighting the internet and LJ tonight. Time for bed! But before I go...

I've been itching to write something since I got JC's CD, especially when it was apparent that he's been sick for all these appearances. The Ryan Seacrest show today gave me the final nudge.

Poor baby, so stopped up but happy, but tired too. Boy definitely needed a nap and some cold medicine. And thus a story was born. :-)

Dedicated to the Chasez, 'cause I love him so and he's done himself proud.

JuC flavored, so this is the time to run screaming if that horrifies you. ;-)

GORGEOUS. This man is unbelievable.

There are others in this post at the JJB by nsyncgirlique0. From this site, the photographer for the album. Thanks to PRIORisMYdesire for loading them up for the JJB. Edited to add: The ever fabulous [livejournal.com profile] fuskeez has loaded them up in her journal.

Un-friggin-believable. A gladiator. The man should be illegal, he's just unearthly.

I forgot about it until fifteen minutes into the show. I'm watching now, but PLEASE tell me that someone is capturing this. Please, please, please. The best appearance yet, and I didn't tape it.

In case anyone was curious about iTunes sales (evidently, Schizophrenic is doing well there!), the question was raised at the JJB and I found this (because I never met a search I didn't like):

Nielson music tracker adds online stores

Nielson SoundScan, the company that tracks music sales and is the source for the Billboard music charts, has added Napster, BuyMusic and MusicMatch to its tracking service. The three new additions join Apple's iTunes Music Store, RealNetworks' Rhapsody, MusicNet and Liquid Digital Media. The additions show the importance of the online music services to overall music sales. Forrester Research forecasts that the online music industry will account for 11 percent, or approximately US$1.4 billion...

Thirteen days, holy moley. I need to get it in gear if I'm going to take off on the 24th. The question is, should I take vacation days on Monday-Tuesday, or Tuesday-Wednesday?

Monday-Tuesday would make a nice long weekend, something I could definitely use. But Tuesday-Wednesday...would reviews start rolling in the next day? Should I just save that day? I'm torn!

I have nothing exciting to say, so off I go.

Oh my goodness. ;-) From this article in the telegraph.co.uk:

Jordan v Janet: whose breast is best?
By Zoe Heller

The powers that be are not yet mollified. They have banned Janet from performing at the Grammys this Sunday and, for safety's sake, they have also bounced J.C. Chasez , a member of Justin Timberlake's band, *NSync, from performing at the NFL's Pro-Bowl on Sunday.

Mr Chasez doesn't even have breasts, but you can't be too careful: the Pro-Bowl half-time show will now feature "a Hawaiian extravaganza" (with the hula dancers presumably attired in turtlenecks)...

It's looooong... )

ROFL!!!

A hilarious take on the proceedings. From a looong article: Losers of the Week

It's five days later and we still haven't emerged from the shadow of Janet Jackson's right breast. Like George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life, Janet's life nourishing jug has touched so many (re: 89 million) in such a short time, one hates to ponder what things would've been like if the rays of her nipple shield hadn't shone so brightly for the whole of a second. Here are some of the most immediately affected:

::snip::

JC Chasez

In guilt-by-boy-band association news, the NFL banned Timberlake's fellow 'N Sync member from performing at the Pro Bowl half-time show this Sunday. Chasez angrily lambasted the powers that be for canceling him over worries about the sexual content of his song "Blowin' Me Up (with Her Love)" even after they made him change the lyrics so that it would be a song sitting Chasez on a crate of explosives. A NFL spokesperson denies charges of being reactionary about the Jackson flap. "We just woke up Monday morning and realized, "Hey, we're the NFL and this guy was in N' Sync! Shouldn't we be booking Steppenwolf or something? What the hell is Bob Seger doing for coin these days?"

Yes, I keep thinking I won't post another thing. But it's MTV!

JC Chasez Slams NFL After Being Cut From Pro Bowl Halftime

It features one of the new SNL-looking pics. Mmmmmm. Hot, articulate and pissed-off. That Chasez is one sexy boy. Couldn't love him any more than I do. Class act, baby.

Dear Rock the Vote,

About the Rock the Vote awards on Feb. 7th...

I know that you're probably not the person in charge, but JC Chasez should be added to the list of performers for the event.

In light of his recent booting from the Pro Bowl halftime entertainment lineup - for something he didn't even do - he'd be the perfect addition to the show. You may or may not have read this by now:

http://abcnews.go.com/wire/Entertainment/ap20040205_1737.html

(JC Chasez Unleashes a Scathing Attack on the NFL), but Mr. Chasez is right. Censorship is alive and well in America, and a new brand of McCarthyism seems to be on the march. Rock the vote, indeed.


[real name here]
foxmonkey: Robot Snowman with Flowers (Default)
I'm at the point where I want to read everything, but I don't want to see anything. There are soundbites and news blurbs and opinions galore (some of which are making me absolutely INSANE), but I just don't want to know anymore.

Papa Joe Fatone stood up for JC on Orlando radio. Go Joe Sr.!

JC told the NFL to shove it, he's not singing the anthem. ROCK THE HOUSE WITH YOUR BAD, PISSED-OFF SELF, Chasez! Interesting how in the midst of all this crap, the media is *finally* spelling his name correctly. A Hawaiian report even provided a helpful pronounciation guide (Shah-ZAY).

There's a ton of "I want"s careening through my brain. Your mileage (and wants!) may vary.

I want the Grammy people to offer JC the presentation gig that he turned down for the Pro Bowl - or give him the gig they booted Janet from. It would be amusing if he politely told them to kiss his ass. ;-)

I want the Rock the Vote party people (he's listed as a host) to invite him to perform instead.

If he does attend the Rock the Vote dealie, I hope he's given one hell of a standing ovation when his name is announced.


I'm tired as hell.
