Looks like this is getting some buzz on FB:



So who decided this was even good wardrobe wise to perform at a concert?

And let me guess this guy sings bubblegum/dance/club music right.

The only thing that the outfit is missing in a shotgun blast to the face. Then pure hesychia...

Also we can only hope this thread becomes about homosexuality, as the singer is gay LGBT.

If you look close, it would appear he is wearing a Schemaglove (TM) as well.

Strictly speaking, the outfit is not that of a monastic schema, though it borrows much of its imagery. Ghastly bad taste, at the very least.  Tongue

In violation of the canons:

"As it has been, from time to time, the practice of un-learned and unstable men in the barbarian lands to imitate our manner of dress and superficial demeanour, we declare and proclaim to the Gentiles, as it has been handed down to us, that whosoever cops the swag of bishop, presbyter, deacon, or laymen, let such a one be handed over to the governor of that city, that he may be revealed publicly as a phony." - Canon VI, 2nd Synod of Portland

Not a fan, myself, but talentless he is not. He even stepped into Freddie Mercury's shoes and fronted Queen for a tour, I believe. The guy's a ridiculously good singer (even though his songs kind of suck).

It's definitely not from scripture or anything church-related. The language is modern Russian, not Church Slavonic, and what is written could be a poem or song lyrics.

This action by Adam Lambert makes me wonder if it is not a political statement. I found a video on youtube of him singing Madonna's Ray of Light. He wore this "mockery" outfit during this concert, or at least while singing this song at the concert. The script on the outfit appears to have some Slavonic on it. The symbols seems to be a mis-mash of various things. Whoever designed it had some knowledge of the monastic schema.

Could it be a statement against the Church of Russia, or Russia? It has been said here that Adam Lambert is homosexual. Perhaps this is a kind of protest (like Madonna speaking out) against the recent laws in Russia concerning homosexuality?

For me, the Monastic schema has an other-wordliness. Its is quite visually striking. Personally, it is strange to see such a thing that Adam Lambert is wearing. It does seem a "mockery". Truly, it is, I believe though, just an act of ignorance, no matter the reason he wore it or the reason the designer designed it. I pray for those who are involved in its existence. I'm not personally outraged though. If Adam Lambert and the designer had ever spent time  with a Holy elder or Holy Eldress of the Greatschema, I doubt that such a thing would have been designed by the designer or worn by Adam Lambert.

The hoodies and shirts designed by Death to the World, I think they have their place. I'm not going to beat down on them. They aren't for everyone, but for some, I think they can be a step, even though very small.

If hesychia sells, then why not? In regards to 'death to the World". They are so corny they are hilarious. Although I doubt they mean that.

It is an actual Orthodox ministry run by the St Herman of Alaska Brotherhood of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

Aren't they a group of former punk rockers too?

Death to the World was started by monks and nuns from the St Herman of Alaska Monastery in Platina, California, as a medium of evangelism to teens involved in the punk subculture by monastics who were ex-punks. A founding member was Justin Marler who, soon after recording Volume One with seminal doom metal band Sleep in 1991, left for seven years of monastic life while Sleep went on to become metal icons.

Originally, the monastics planned to submit an article about Fr. Seraphim Rose to the magazine Maximum RocknRoll. They later decided to try to place an ad for their monastery, but were only rudely rejected, being told that the magazine "only [ran] ads for music and zines". This inspired them to begin a zine.

The first issue was printed in the December of ’94 featuring a monk holding a skull on cover. The hand-drawn bold letters across the top read “DEATH TO THE WORLD, The Last True Rebellion” and the back cover held the caption: “they hated me without a cause.” ... The first issue, decorated with ancient icons and lives of martyrs inside, was advertised in Maximum RocknRoll and brought letters from all around the world.

I dread the day when the Coptic Orthodox Church becomes hip enough to engage in something that silly. I mean, I guess there are already Pope Shenouda III memorial t-shirts, but at least he isn't presented as a hip, counter-cultural figure.

The trouble with marketing your faith within a narrowly-defined, mostly youth-oriented subculture is that youth generally grow up and leave (and people who aren't youth anymore usually don't respond to such things). I'm glad I just have a closet full of old records gathering dust rather than a closet full of...God stuff.

I would think that Orthodoxy would be the last thing in the world that would need a gimmick or a hook, but what do I know. If the t-shirts get the kids interested, then...good?  Undecided

There are some Hyperdox Hermans who actually buy this stuff; don't be surprised. Whatever can be marketed on the face of a coffee mug or T-shirt will in fact be marketed on the face of a coffee mug or T-shirt if there is a market of buyers to exploit; in this case, the Hyperdox Herman converts to Orthodoxy. I know because I ordered an Orthodox iPhone case when I first converted, but the order messed up, took my money and I never got the case. It's like delegates from a cosmetic company going into the Amazon on a canoe to sell makeup to natives.

I actually heard an audio documentary on this story about the Avon woman who did this, like 15 years ago, and I still couldn't understand why someone would have to use a canoe to access amazon.com when reading this.

I thought perhaps canoe was the new mobile device.

Chotki, whether as a rope, or as a bracelet, should never be a "fashion accessory". Ideally, they should be worn under one's clothing, unless one is a monastic or a bishop. Even for them, their prayer ropes are usually looped around their belt, and are barely visible against the black of their robes.

Though a few of the babushki and yiayies I know wouldn't need sticks. Their words and their fearlessness are their weapons. I've seen them reduce six-foot-three galoots to a quivering, teary mess just through their sheer force of moral integrity.
