Vice President Joe Biden visiting Quincy

Volunteers spent hours crafting signs, hanging banners and decorating the grounds of the Tirrell Room in preparation for Vice President Joseph Biden’s visit to the city Saturday.

Biden was scheduled to attend a late-morning rally at the function hall for Norfolk County District Attorney William Keating, who is locked in a tight race with state Rep. Jeffrey Perry for the 10th Congressional seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. William Delahunt.

U.S. Sen. John Kerry and Victoria Reggie Kennedy were to join the vice president in speaking at the event. Siobhan Magnus, a former American Idol contestant and Cape Cod native, was to perform.

Jason Aldean: Party Crasher

Jason Aldean says he didn’t worry that Kelly Clarkson might show him up on the duet they share on Aldean’s new album. “Hell, I knew she would, ” the country star admits with a laugh. “But because of the type of song it is, I knew it wasn’t something just any female singer could pull off. We needed Kelly’s soulful, breathy sound.”

A dramatic, slow-building power ballad in the style of Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart, ” “Don’t You Wanna Stay” is one of a handful of tracks on “My Kinda Party, ” due Nov. 2 from Broken Bow Records, that move away from the pumped-up arena-country vibe for which Aldean has become known since his self-titled 2005 debut. In “See You When I See You” he dials down the guitars for a tender meditation on the meaning of goodbye, while “If She Could See Me Now” mines a plaintive folk-rock vein.

Ryan Seacrest Foundation Builds First Broadcast Media Center at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

Throughout my 20-year career in the entertainment business, I’ve visited numerous hospitals and centers across the country that have the weighty task of caring for children facing challenges because of life-threatening disease or injury. I have consistently been amazed by the courage of the children and their families and in awe of the tireless dedication and brilliance of doctors and hospital staff who work to give hope and solutions to so many families on a daily basis. As a result of my experiences I wanted to have a more lasting impact on children’s lives, which in turn inspired me to recently create the Ryan Seacrest Foundation (RSF), a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for seriously ill and injured children through unique programs that utilize multimedia and interactive platforms to enlighten, entertain and educate.

Paije Richardson is next on the board at 5/1.

  1. Until the #’s thread is posted, here’s VH1 Countdown for October 30, 2010

    07 Daughtry “September” [14|1(2x)] [-5]

  2. Last night on The Soup at the very beginning of the show they had a bit about Derek Hough saying guys shouldn’t wear eyeliner( from DWTS), then they panned to a sad face of Adam Lambert and said “Somewhere Adam Lambert is crying in his Appletini”, lol.

  3. If those song spoilers are accurate there could be a few train wrecks on X-Factor today. They take a very liberal view when it comes to songs fitting a given theme.

    Irish boyband Westlife did a very good cover of One Direction’s song, I don’t know the boys will match it. Matt continues to cover female artists which is kind of smart by Dannii. Though he has a better voice, will he stay close to Jesse McCartney’s original version instead? Louis continues to fail Mary with old songs. I like Rebecca; she’ll be interesting to compare with Siobhan’s Idol version of the same song.

  4. Westlife – Total Eclipse Of The Heart
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RYC3-apFa0

    Umm, yeah. I have to admit, I don’t know what connection does this song have with Halloween? I just don’t know, last night there were several other song spoilers for One Direction:
    Disturbia by Rihanna
    Better The Devil You Know by Kylie Minogue

    Also, Bleeding Love?

  5. ^^ Bleeding Love has ‘bleeding’ in the title
    Back To Black has ‘black’
    Total Eclipse of the Heart has ‘eclipse’ so a connection to …moon …vampires

  6. Thanks for the fangirl account of the scene from Lee’s video shoot, MJ. What a thrill for them-Lee is always so sweet to his fans. I see Lee still doesn’t own a belt (see-youtube performance of “Lips of an Angel.”)

    Jonna Walsh sent out a lot of tweets during the shoot, which continues today. I can’t wait to see this video!

  7. I wonder how Wagner will get on with O Fortuna. He claims he is an opera singer, we’ll see..
    Belle Ami have a horrible song choice, imo, and they won’t survive it. It will ensures that the girls who are supposed to be in stay in.

  8. Andrew. Dude. Serious costume there.

    Poor Lee, still no belt. Maybe we should take up a collection.

    ETA: “O Fortuna”? As in, Orff’s “O Fortuna”??? Holy crap.

  9. The Lee fangirl story was so funny! That’s amazing she found the location. Good for her! Glad she got to talk to Lee after going through all that effort.

  10. “There might be a wedding, there might be a funeral.”

    Yes, that’s believable. Whenever I go to a funeral, I make sure my friends and I all attend in identical red cocktail dresses. Who doesn’t?

    That’s amazing she found the location.

    I liked the PA going over and finding out how she found it. Taking notes for future security procedures and to stop leaks? And Lee kept looking over? Because she was the lucky fan that an Idol finally falls gaga over or because he wants to make sure she isn’t going to go all Mark Chapman on him?

    Remember the Glamberts last year that managed to breach security and get into the venue where they were filming Adam’s FYE video? They were tweeting about hiding behind the plants (if you recall, there was a section of the video where Adam looked like he was lost in the plant section of Ikea).

    I imagine that this is all good fun for the fans and in some ways it’s kind of cool for the artists. But, on the other hand, there are enough crazy fans in the world that have done disturbing things that I’m sure it’s also kind of creepy.

  11. Aiden, Katie and Rebecca have the best songs but they are also very hard to sing. Aiden in particular is in risk of being karaoke.
    Matt could do well because he’s a boy so Simon won’t be directly comparing him to Leona.

    And Belle Ami will sing this?
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JH3WvI_S6-k

    There was a girlband a few years ago who sang this and was voted in the B2, I think the girls will have a similar fate.

  12. Ewwww. Stalkery fans FTL! I don’t care whose fandom we are talking about: Going out of your way to look for where your Idol is shooting his video after scouring the Internet for info on the location is textbook stalking. It’s creepy and disturbing.

  13. Remember the Glamberts last year that managed to breach security and get into the venue where they were filming Adam’s FYE video?

    Kris doesn’t have that problem since they always seem to want to film his mvs in the friggin desert. :-)

  15. Ok glad I’m not the only one who found the fan account from the video shoot creepy. Its bad enough poor Lee inherited some of David Cook’s stalkers, these I’m not familiar with though eww. He might as well get use to it.

    ^This

  17. I agree about the fan accounts. I know they themselves didn’t mean any harm, and are just fans, but Lee or whoever it is doesn’t know that when he sees outsiders at something that was supposed to be private. And I also think that even if you do yourself find the information, and know you don’t mean harm, it would be best not to put this information on the internet because you don’t know who might see the information. I know this is part of being a celebrity, but a line has to be drawn somewhere, especially because someone could get real time information from twitter.

    About the X factor,I was hoping Matt would do his Thriller cover. Though, I’m sure he could do something with whatever he is given.

  18. I agree about the creepyness. Sure, these fans are sane and just wanted to catch a glimpse of Lee, but what happens next time when someone has less than innocent motives and intentions? I’m happy they were able to meet Lee, but there are more appropriate ways to do that sorta stuff.

    Lee still doesn’t own a belt

    Oh, he owns belts. They just don’t keep his jeans up where they should be ;)

  19. Um… those photos needed a warning wordnerdarchie. I nearly fell off my chair haha :)

  20. cristististi, The Cook fans who had the good fortune to attend the last couple of concerts (where those jeans were worn) had a very good time. Yes, they did.

  21. I agree about the fan accounts. I know they themselves didn’t mean any harm, and are just fans, but Lee or whoever it is doesn’t know that when he sees outsiders at something that was supposed to be private.

    I’m not going to be harsh on them. Actually, I congratulate them on tracking it down. 8th and Spring St. are hardly ‘private’

    THis is LA and very many shoots take place daily on public streets, in parks, in stores, etc. The permits are public record and there are usually signs on telephone poles, etc. directing crew to the location and parking. It’s everyday life here.

    It doesn’t sound like these girls were disruptive in any way. Crews are used to lookie-loos and I’m sure Lee is getting used to being recognized and having fans.

  22. I also didn’t find the fan account too weird. This always happens when you’re filming in a public area, especially in LA. I don’t think Lee minded, since he went over to talk to the fans.

  23. It could be disruptive though, if other fans show up also.

    I’ve heard of fans showing up at things that should be private, also, though, including a funeral of a family member, which IMO is way over the line for fan behavior.

  24. Well, wordnerdarchie, my Halloween weekend just got a whole lot warmer. Hooo.

  25. Lee should take whatever fans he can get.

    I wouldn’t worry too much, Lee has plenty of fans!

  26. Aww #TOSOD (the other side of down) is trending in the US and David saw it. hehe.

    DavidArchie: Hahaha just saw that #tosod is trending! Thanks you guys!! Hope you are enjoying the new album The Other Side of Down!

    the first @americanidol season 10 promo airs tonight during the World Series on Fox… i havent even seen so let me know what u guys think! 8 minutes ago via ÜberTwitter

    Scary base jumping video for “Pick U Up”, a song I wrote with @greg_wells & @adamlambert http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUP4cUSoV-4 10 minutes ago via web

  28. h, he owns belts. They just don’t keep his jeans up where they should be ;)

    Doesn’t he have a butt or what?! :lol:

  29. I’m sure it’s also kind of creepy.

    Yeah I am sorry but some of the things that fans do creep the hell out of me.

    Rivers Cuomo
    Scary base jumping video for “Pick U Up”, a song I wrote with @greg_wells & @adamlambert http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUP4cUSoV-4 10 minutes ago via web

    I love that video it fits perfectly with the song :D

  30. wordnerdarchie I hope to find myself in similar circumstances with Lee or David *crosses fingers*

  31. CindyM, that video of Pick U Up is Great!!! I love that song. Hope Adam sees it.

  32. Does anyone know the original source for the video shoot leak? I dunno how much ninja-ing it took, the first reference I saw on twitter was so frickin specific I assumed it had to have been someone within the production staff.

    The DeWyzers: Our boy Lee Dewyze is filming his music video for the single
    “Sweet Serendipity” on the 10 Fwy, 110 Fwy – Alameda St (6:00 A.M.- 4:00
    A.M.) in Los Angeles on Friday and Saturday (10.30).

    Source: http://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=128067483914282&id=117295391616359

  33. Does anyone know the original source for the video shoot leak?

    Some filming locations are posted on the website http://www.onlocationvacations.com/2010/10/29/fridays-lot-list-filming-locations-in-new-york-los-angeles-chicago-dallas-and-more-including-contagion-wanderlust-and-bernie/

    From the website:
    •Lee Dewyze is filming a video on the 10 Fwy, 110 Fwy – Alameda St (6:00 A.M.- 4:00 A.M.) Friday and Saturday (10.30).

    The website link circulated on twitter with the location – I presume someone had a google alert out for “Lee DeWyze”, and was notified!

    Where the website got its information from is then the question, but there must have been a lot of city and highway permits that were needed, presumably they’re accessible by the public?

  34. Very cool video of “Pick U Up”. And very nice of Rivers Cuomo to mentioned the video and Adam.

  35. I love Rivers Cuomo and loved how he tweeted about that GREAT video. Maybe Adam will pick up some Weezer fans! PUU has always been my favorite song on the album, and I know alot of Adam fans have been wanting to hear that one live.

  36. Danny is in BC for a concert tonight.

    He was also on Global News this am in Canada- any Canadian fans have a link for a recording??

    ABC special “Road to CMAs” also started airing today, but it won’t air in my area for another week.

  37. I am late to the party (coaching all day!) but had to comment:

    The Cook fans who had the good fortune to attend the last couple of concerts (where those jeans were worn) had a very good time. Yes, they did.

    Why yes we did :) Thanks for those pics!

  38. I’m glad Adam’s giggle at the end of PUU was left in for the MV. That gets me every time. :lol:

    Oh, he owns belts. They just don’t keep his jeans up where they should be

    Then maybe he should get the brand David Cook wears … they’re made to ride low.

    Exhibit 1

    Exhibit 2

    Exhibit 3

    Shiny Exhibit 4

    Wow! nice pics!

    Andrew Garcia that’s scary!

  40. Kirsten: Lee and the producer were super nice to us and were genuinely happy that we came out to support Lee and the fact that we didn’t tell every tom dick and harry about it! After they were done, I figured it would be ok to share. We also were not all “fan girly”. We were very calm, didn’t ask for pictures accept with vince and were mature about it.

    Keel: BTW I did not scour the internet looking for the location. I simply did a couple searches and found it by accident. Maybe it was Sweet Serendipity? I also did not share the information with but 2 girls that went with me. It is LA you know! Just because someone is a dedicated fan, doesn’t make them crazy, creepy or a stalker! Unfortunately, there are those out there who make being a “fan” look bad.

    And for the rest of you haters… My encounter is in NO way comparable to crashing a funeral. That is just totally wrong! For the record, we did NOT approach Lee at all. He approached us within 2 min. of him arriving. We were sitting at a public coffee joint on a public street. If anyone is responsible for us finding him, it should be Jonna. If she hadn’t tweeted about the Red Mustang, we never would have found them! She was driving it down the freakin street!!

  41. So looks like Mike, who has been in Archie’s band for a while now, is no longer his touring guitar player.

    http://tl.gd/6o37tl

    Looks like this dude is the new guitarist.
    RT @alfredoherz: Learning 11 songs for my first rehearsal with David Archuleta in 3 days.

  42. Ewwww. Stalkery fans FTL! I don’t care whose fandom we are talking about: Going out of your way to look for where your Idol is shooting his video after scouring the Internet for info on the location is textbook stalking. It’s creepy and disturbing.

    This. Stuff like that just makes me hate fans sometimes and makes me think they deserve the names that they’re called.

  43. Don’t know where to post this, but I saw this tip in another blog I follow. Amazon is giving away a $3 credit for MP3 downloads. Just head to the redemption page (http://amzn.to/bw9j87) and use this code “STUDENT3” for the free credit. You can use the credit to get Lee Dewyze’s new single for free or be able to buy any of the other idols’ MP3 albums $3 less. The code expires Nov 1 by the way.

    *I used it to get Taylor Swift’s new album for $0.99!

  44. yoyosassy, I’m glad you had fun. I agree, there is a difference between being a dedicated fan and a stalker. I don’t think there is anything wrong with watching a video shoot from the sidelines. It’s also interesting to watch the video shoot and then compare it with the final result. Ah movie (or should I say video) magic.

  45. yoyosassy. Glad you went there to support Lee and thank you for the fabulous recap.

  46. Lee needs to wear tighter jeans. Just sayin.

    Also, I just handed out Halloween candy to a kid (10 to 12 yo) who had the same get-up as Andrew, plus some fake blood going down his neck. It was a little disturbing, plus not sure how he saw thru the mask. Ah-gotta love Trick or Treat!
