Recovery Music Matinee: Chick-fil-a

Today's offering comes to you from from three of LA's most talented drag queens, Vicky Vox, Detox Icunt, and Willam Belli of DPDRS4 fame.

I haven't been on Team Willam but I love fresh parody. And releasing your music video on the same day you get kicked off your reality show? Brilliant marketing.

My hat is off to you ladies.

Recovery Music Matinee: The Sayer's Club

If you've been following this blog for any length of time then you are probably clued in to my little cover obsession. Sometimes whole months go by and that's all I've posted on here.

(I don't think this month is going to be any different)

My fella and I had the opportunity to see LP at the elusive Sayer's Club last week and it was the best live show i've seen in a very long time. I'm not gonna ruin it with words, just go watch every youtube video you can get your hands on.

(yet more) Shameless Self Promotion: Bug Chaser

Bug Chaser from Anything Is Possible Productions on Vimeo.

Good Morning Gentle Readers,

I have just received word that Bug Chaser has been picked up by FILMOUT, San Diego's LGBT film festival. And I couldn't be more stoked to share the sexy-gay-horror with the city of my youth this May.

Lana Del Rey and Super Mario Bros, two great tastes that taste great together...

An Open Letter to the Queens of San Francisco

I have always loved Drag, even as a little bro-mo on the streets of San Diego; I have always been captivated by the power of people to transform themselves, right before your very eyes, into someone else all together. And I have always always loved Ru Paul. And for the last three and a half seasons I have watched (with varying degrees of faithfulness, though i have seen RPDR on tour) as epic talents and titanic egos met and clashed in a quest to become America's Next Drag Superstar. And I have lived! With but one complaint/question, Where are all the San Francisco Queens?

I'm not the first person to ask this question, though I've been asking it for a while. I've heard reasons ranging from RuPaul doesn't look kindly on the SF School of drag, to the notion that SF Queens don't apply to RPDR because they aren't interested that kind of attention. Well last night the call went out, there will be a fifth season of switch games and drag queens lip-synching for their lives. And I have one request for the Queens of San Francisco. 

(and yes, I'm talking to you, and you, and you, and you, and you and all of you. If anyone has an "overabundance of charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent" it's you ladies)

You say you don't want to be famous? I say "fame" will give you the profile and the connection to make the art that you want to make, and to put on the shows you want to put on. Even if you think it's not "your kinda thing," or that that isn't a particular hill that you want to be king err... QUEEN of, I don't care.  Think of what you could do with all that money, think about THE GOOD you could do with that money. And finally, San Francisco has a beyond belief Drag Cabaret sceen that deserves a little attention.

So hop to it, Queens. Send in those videos. Because RuPaul needs you, America needs you, and I need you to be up there on that screen every week, because a couple of times a month just isn't enough.

Crazy love.

Shameless Self Promotion

Hello Gentle Readers,

Although I haven't written anything here worth reading  in a least a week, and even though I have several deadlines i'm not making I thought I'd stop by and let you guys know that Bug Chaser has been selected to show at (the slightly awkwardly worded and not, strictly speaking, accurately named) A Night of Horror International Film Festival in Sydney, Australia.

The festival is from March 22 - April 1. If I have any secret benefactors who don't know what to get me for my birthday, let me tell you right now, a ticket to Sydney would be an excellent place to start.
