Hey, kids. It’s Frecks again, although it’s been a minute since we’ve talked. Clearly, that means we have some music to discuss. And, in today’s case, it’s some super delicious, brain infecting dance pop music. And, because God made me a giver in addition to a homosexual, I’ve brought along some visuals to illustrate. (I’ll think later of ways you can thank me.)
Andrew Christian Dancers – F U Betta [Tribute to Neon Hitch]
Let’s start with this delightful bit of trash, shall we? It’s not even a little bit safe for work. (Unless you work as a go-go at Splash or something sad like that, in which case: “Get back on that bar and shake it for the tourists!”) Don’t say you weren’t warned.
How horrid, yes? I think we can all agree that such a terrifying display of flaming faggotry slash bossy bottom pride has seldom been seen outside of the dance floor at Bartini. Still, you can’t help but admire Andrew Christian for really knowing his customer base. And, you know, pandering to it so directly.
Okay, homos: if you know at all what’s good for you, you’ve already read “The Hunger Games” trilogy in its entirely. Likely, you’ve also been inspired to get a “Katniss Everdin is my Homegirl” tramp stamp.
You certainly squealed with sheer delight when you learned that the books had been optioned into a movie, and that fierce, up-and-comer Jennifer Lawrence (a.k.a. Young Mystique in X-Men: First Class) had signed on in the lead role.
Well, earlier this year, we got more evidence that the film was in capable hands, creatively, from a somewhat unlikely source: everyone’s least-favorite goody two shoes, Taylor Swift.
See, Taylor, joined by Indie Folk Americana duo and overnight music industry darlings, The Civil Wars, (about whom we’ve already raved on this blog), recorded the perfect theme song to the series.
That’s right. You heard me. The. Perfect. Theme.
Hey, kids. How you Laura Dern? You finally managed to shake off that persistent, lingering Sunday brunch hangover? Ready to talk about music perhaps? Maybe?
Lana Del Rey’s album, “Born to Die,” was officially released today. Any of y’all already listened to it ten times through on repeat? Excepting a stan-tastic rave review on Gloganvlog?
Not so much of that here, I’m afraid. Don’t get me wrong: I think the album’s great. I think it lived up to my expectations and then some. That said, basically everyone on the entire internet has already chimed in on what they think about it, often at agonizing length, and I just can’t be bothered to contribute to that. Suffice to say, if, like me, you are at all into super stylish, well-produced moody electropop, get your filthy gay hands on a copy of that album, ASAP.
Instead of talking about Lana, I figured I’d link some music videos that I think don’t suck too hard. Maybe you can watch them while you’re waiting for
the pain of your bleak existence the workday to end and let me know what you think in the comments.
Phantogram – When I’m Small
I love that one of my very favorite songs of 2010 got what is basically a perfect video treatment: a mini movie that’s just as sexy, cool and impeccably produced as the song itself.
Some times something just slaps you right in the face so hard that you can’t possibly ignore it. Sort of like when you are in a Rest Stop bathroom and somehow end up on your knees giving blowies to truckers that tip you with state flower keychains and denim jackets. As well all know, the Madonnagaga feud has been going on for a while now. Beyonce has been accused of ripping off every major artist for the last decade. It is pretty fucking obvious that the entire music industry is derivative of itself over, and over again. But then someone smart comes along and makes a statement about it. Perhaps this someone dresses like a person with a serious addiction to sniffing glue. Perhaps this person’s wigs come to the Ricky’s after Halloween bargain bin sale and their makeup is obviously colorful lead paint. Maybe this person has a thousand different personalities and none of them seem that pleasant. Regardless, I think Nicki Minaj is either:
B) Trying to leech off of the Madonnagaga publicity since nobody cares that she is the new Little Kim anymore.
C) She is making a statement that inspiration comes from all sorts of places, and Read more…
Those of you who know me, know that I am not a super-typical gay. Yes, I do cock around with men, and I attend gay events such as Gay Days, Circuit parties, and Church. I am not an avid Madonna or Bette Midler fan, however. And Lady Gaga sometimes makes me want to peel my eyelids off with an orange juicer. Recently, Lady Gaga has parted ways with her creative director, so I think its the perfect time for the official Lady Gaga backlash to commence! Here are the reasons why:
1. People always call Lady Gaga an artist, but the truth is, in order to get ready for a concert she just bathes herself in Gorilla Glue and lets the gays around her throw random objects at her body, seeing which ones will stick.
2. She has started this fad for pop artists everywhere to just dress as bat-shit crazy as they want. Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj are two examples of #thingsthatfelloutofgagasvagina and while I love Nicki’s music, she looks like a muppet that got raped up the ass by Grimace. Don’t even get me started on Katy Perry. You want to do something crazy? Do it the classy way like Read more…
