Monks evening chant at Lingyin temple. No photos inside. This is a wood carving relief on the back entrance.
I so very much miss traveling.
This could very well be the last full band show of 2011 so come on out!!! You just never know when we’ll be back. It’s a lot of fun. You might laugh.. if you cry while watching The Notebook - you’ll probably cry here too. You love crying - don’t even deny it. Then, we can party afterwards.
8pm-9pm. See you there
CHECK IT OUTTTT!!!!!! My first music video for my FIRST single, “Love Is Something I Want More Of.”
Please watch and “Like” :)
Live radio interview about The Deltones with Janice Malone from Blog Talk Radio’s “Film Festival Radio” show.
Have you guys ever seen that episode of Seinfeld where Kramer gathers the Merv Griffin set and puts on a talk show? During the radio show tour this morning, I was reminded of it… :)
We tracked down the fashionable detective who’s essentially neutering more important media coverage of Occupy Wall Street with his meticulously disheveled locks and wry smile. He’s just too damn fun to resist.
GQ: How would you describe your style?
Rick Lee: I describe it as “traditional English country.” I love traditional English country clothes.
GQ: It’s funny because you’ve been anointed “Hipster Cop” now, but looking at all your pictures—I’m not sure that’s the right descriptor.
Rick Lee: I agree! I don’t have a beard. I don’t live in Williamsburg. Though off-duty I may look a little bit more hipster. I’m thin, so when I’m off-duty I like skinny jeans. And, well, I have about five pairs of Converse sneakers, but I’ve been wearing Converse sneakers since I was in junior high school. I’ve always worn Converse sneakers, they’re not just a fashion trend with me. I’ve always liked them. So off duty, I throw on skinny jeans, a T-shirt, and a cardigan. I guess you could say I look more hipster on the weekend. Or in the summer, I’ll wear my jeans cuffed, with wingtip shoes and a t-shirt and a vest. Unfortunately, I can’t wear jeans to work.
GQ: So there’s a detective dress code? That is not what cop shows would have me believe.
Rick Lee: Yes, unfortunately. The police commissioner might get mad if I wear jeans.
GQ: If “Hipster Cop” is inaccurate, what new fun cop moniker should we use?
Rick Lee: Uh…”Country Gentleman.” Or the “Gentleman Police Officer.”
Ultimate YouTube stars. Congrats to arguably the coolest couple of the year.

The Sing-Off, Deltones’ Elimination
Thank you EVERYONE for all of the support you’ve given to me and to the Deltones these past few weeks for “The Sing-Off.” We had an incredible time on the show and despite its competitive nature, we made a lot of unforgettable friends and learned many, oh sooo many lessons.
Though I’m back here singing and writing in NYC, most of the Deltones will continue having an impossible amount of fun at UDel and I will be counting down the weeks until I can see them perform their winter concert on November 19th, when I can pretend that I am a college student again… *sigh* (ps. for a killer sigh, check out the end of “Listen To Your Heart” on episode 5.. just sayin.)
For all of the critics - this is all so much easier said than done. I’ve been learning to not let the critic be bigger than the creator, so I do appreciate both the negative and positive feedback as it encourages me to put this idea into practice. You give ALL the groups a little something more to work with; a little more fuel for their fire. So for you, I am also grateful.. really, no sarcasm there. In fact, to whoever made fun of my hair in episode 4 - you were 100% accurate, I just forgot to retweet you. Oops.. my b.
I don’t think I could ever again judge anyone on a reality TV show.. or at least not TOO harshly (there’s some insaneee stuff out there.) This definitely wasn’t the easiest of experiences; it was a humbling one and it’s one I consider myself lucky as hell to have had. We are all STILL baffled by the fact that we were chosen for season 3. We enjoyed and often embraced the challenges that came with each week, even if it meant some all nighters and a few delirious evenings when we fought over which food court to drive to for dinner. (I always voted for the one with the biggest fro-yo selection+free fruit infused water in case you were wondering.. but you probably weren’t)
I am forever proud to be a Deltone and a member of The Sing-Off Season 3 family.
Please keep watching and keep following. There will always be more music.
Well well well… after a weekend of autumnal splendor in upstate NY (yes, I just used the words autumnal and splendor) it’s back to work.
Preview episode 5 here..

Here I’m singing with the Deltones in Gore Hall (University of Delaware.) We used this live recording for our album “Don’t Let Out The Black And White Cats.”
