The Robert Schrader posse leaves San Antone...

...which may very well have been my last show of the tour. I had planned to do California, but for a number of reasons will more than likely not do.

That said, my tour has ended on an amazing note. You've all seen the San Antonio setlist. I'm here to tell you that the energy was second to none. This was easily my favorite of 19 ADP shows and in my top 5 ever, no question. Absolutely no question. The show was so good that after the Take to The Sky (best version I've ever heard)-Full Anastasia-Butterfly-PGY stretch I was thankful for "Concertina," a song that normally bores me. I needed to catch my breath. This show was that good! I would almost say this is the best show of the tour overall, even though I've only seen 19 or the 70+ so far...

Without further adieu, here are videos of the four debuts. Apologies in advance RE: clipping of "Anastasia" (due to youtube's time limits) "Butterfly" (memory card issues), and rude audience members during "New Age"

Come in Houston--and Dallas

Sorry to lump both of these shows into one entry, but to be honest (a) the past 48 hours have been a non-stop cross-Texas driving clusterfuck and (b) the Dallas show wasn't, in my opinion, good enough to warrant its own blog entry, especially under those circumstances.

Santa was, of course, wonderful, in all her coked-out, raspberry-swirl, Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader glory. But Tear In Your Hand? Lust? Jackie? Horses? No thanks. Waaaaay too mellow for a Texas show.

Houston, on the other hand was wonderful. I ended up getting to do the Platinum VIP for this show at the last minute--and for free--due to Sakre's friend Elizabeth backing out of it for a very lame reason. Pictures of my nerdy interaction with Tori--where I asked, once again, for "Peeping Tommi," reminding her that I'd been requesting it since June, and also asking her to do "Not David Bowie" and to bring Pip out tomorrow night. yes, I know I'm a greedy bitch. I wasn't expecting much based on her reactions.

Well, two out of three requests granted so far. "Bowie"'s below. Sakre got "Tommi" as I was a wreck during. You'll probably here my gay-ass "thank you" on the bootleg when it's released in a couple hours.

On a side note, I'd just like to publicly vent about the fact that a certain person on Tori's crew has now made it apparent that he is only concerned with helping fans that are not really fans, people that travel across the country, never paying for tickets and always talking shit about about Tori & Co. and fucking her fans over any chance they get. My friends Joey, Kristen, and I were promised something for tonight, and when we asked for it, we were scolded for not being like these awful people.


Anyway, because of all this, many people at the Houston show probably noticed a large quantity of obese and rhythm-lacking fans dancing during the "Widow" remix and bouncing during "Bouncing". I know who you can blame!

Anyway, since SA's not being booted, I'll surely take more video of it. I need to go to bed now.

Shameless photowhoring: Tori and I talking in Philly.

Feel free to create your own captions!

Tour bloopers videos

We had a long ride from NYC to Syracuse, and we have videos to prove it. Watch these at your own risk! They might be offensive if you're not at least somewhat insane!

Santa rocked Philly, Tori phoned it in

Minus this improv, that is:

I really have no idea why the rest of the show was so overwhelming. Actually, scratch that, I do: it was the first night of the "Legs and Boots" instant bootlegs and she was nervous.

The good news is that Tori and I were wearing essentially the same pants at the Meet and Greet:

I also got these cute shots of her. Feel free to add your own humorous captions:

My next show of the American Doll Posse World Tour will be in Dallas on Saturday, November 24, and I proably won't update this blog much until then, though I will be adding select photos and videos from Sakre's camera.

I am very happy and fortunate to have done these five shows, but I am ready to go home. I'm tired. I miss my dog. And most importantly, I'm out of money.

Thanks for reading, everyone, and I'll see you next month!

"The day from hell and the show from heaven" is

a title I would resort to using if I were a far less skilled writer. That said, I am a tired and travel-sick writer, so I'm going to use it anyway. Basically, anything that could have gone wrong, non-Tori wise, in the past 24 hours did. Rental car nightmares, two meals at Burger King, missing my bus this morning, and stomach sickness this afternoon in Philly.

Two pea(nises) in a pod

Actually, one Tori thing went wrong--due to the rental car drama, Sakre missed her VIP Gold in Albany and Tori's drunk ass associate refused to do anything to help her--but the rest were amazing. Minus "1000 Oceans" and the ever standard encores, last night's show was perfect. Even with them I'd give it a solid A. It very well might have been my favorite show of the entire tour. Very very well. Clyde opening and then "Parasol" "Spark" an improv about spanking, "Northern Lad" "Yes Anastasia" "Never Seen Blue" and a "Taxi" debut for good measure? Yes, please.

Multiburst mode!

I took several videos and I'll let them speak for themselves. You know that I don't normally upload every night events like "Rattlesnakes," but it's for this boy for whom I'd basically do anything, so I am sure that you all can deal with it. OH AND CLYDE HAS A NEW WIG--less oppressive bangs!

Today at the Meet and Greet Tori divulged

that the DVD would be filmed at the first two Oakland shows.


Also, Rob took me out to dinner at a very nice raw/vegan/organic restaurant on the Lower East Side, and I forced him to be in two pictures with me:
