New York!  Just when you think you’ve seen and done it all in this city, along comes artist and coloring aficionado Christian Grattan.  He has transformed his popular web series “Coloring With Christian,” into a live coloring event.  Christian will announce via Twitter and/or Facebook a location and a time to show up and he will provide the crayons and a coloring book.  The book, which he is holding in the above picture, features coloring sheets of some of his heroes, which include Karl Lagerfeld, Lady Gaga, Andy Warhol, Oprah Winfrey and Elton John!

If you don’t live in the New York area, well that sucks for you!  But seriously, Christian has provided free and fully downloadable coloring pages so you can color these amazing people in the comfort of your own home.  Visit Christian Loves Sparkle to get your very own set.  Crayons not included.  Thanks for a fun time Christian!  Hope to color with you again very soon.

As most of my readers know, I am not a watcher of “American Idle.”  For months, I kept hearing about Adam Lambert and that he’s being called a “Freddie Mercury for the new generation.” Of course, I immediately take issue with anyone using the Queen’s name in vain, but after reading an article about him in Rolling Stone magazine, I like the guy.  At a Burning Man ceremony, fueled with drugs, he had an epiphany that the only way to accomplish your dreams is to make them happen by acting on them and not just by talking about making them come true.  He also mentions that being gay is just a part of his life and it’s not his entire life, so he doesn’t feel the need to start and end every sentence with it.  Rock on Adam!  I’m sure wherever Freddie is, he’s thinking “there is only one me, but you’re pretty cool too.”
