Adam Lambert (who?) wore an outfit of a schemamonk
« on: February 05, 2013, 11:40:45 PM »
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.  :P

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.

What a world. It's like Spaceballs come to life. Orthodoxy the coffee mug! Orthodoxy the t-shirt! Orthodoxy the mouse pad!

Everything but Orthodoxy, the faith. ::) I dunno...maybe I'll just start buying stuff instead of going to liturgy, praying, or fasting.

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.
