Did you have a chance to visit the Official Fan Club for Clay Aiken today? If so, you probably saw the following announcement.
We at ground (ctrl) are proud to announce the release of our first app for the iPhone! The new app allows you to access all of your favorite ground (ctrl) sites – including clayaiken.com – all from the palm of your hand!
- Access latest news, media, and tour schedules
- View order history and tracking information
- Purchase tickets for upcoming events
- Manage messages and friend requests
Along with this new message was a picture of the app. Unfortunately, ground (ctrl) chose to publish a graphic with a picture of another singer on it. It only took about 5 minutes before the comments started up. Except for two posters, the fans were disappointed that the picture of another artist would be used as promotion on Clay’s Fan Club. It didn’t take long to fill the pages with complaints.
So, instead of posting the original picture here, I am posting a wonderful ad by one of Clay’s fans. Thank you, Cotton, for showing us how it should look.
What do you think? Were you offended by the graphic posted by ground (ctrl)? Do you think they should fix it or remove it from the fan club site? And, lastly, are you going to download the app?
Today is Bastille Day
France celebrates Bastille Day on July 14. Bastille Day is the equivalent of America’s July 4th. It is celebrated across France. Celebrations include fireworks, parades, and Fireman’s Galas, in which firehouses across France open their doors to the public for a night of partying.
Bastille Day remembers the end of the French monarchy and the beginning of the French Revolution.
The French had good reason to rebel. The corrupt king and queen’s actions were causing the poor to go hungry and the wealthy, middle-class merchants and businessmen were tired of not having their concerns heard. By the late 1780s, people in France were fed up and so they began speaking out and met in groups to demand that new laws be made. King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette tried to quiet everyone, but the citizens eventually rebelled.
The flag of France has three colors; Blue, white and red. They symbolize the Republic’s three ideals: Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity for all French citizens.
So…to all our French readers, we wish you a wonderful holiday.
