The Shoes

While i was a bit drunk, i’m pretty sure the DJ last week for TuezGayz Presented by The Glitoris dropped my favorite The Shoes remix of Late of the Pier’s Focker.

The first time i heard this ear candy, i instantly fell in love with the french duo and could regularly be spotted driving around town dancing in my car while looping the shit out of their mixes.

Their EP ‘Stay the Same’ is out “soon” with some tracks featuring our favorite ‘Esser' and 'Das Racist'… i'm not familiar with 'Das Racist' but maybe you caught him during sxsw2010?

My First Earthquake

just like a distant family member, i started scavenging the assets of ‘The Internet’ as soon as i heard news of its death. Besides coming across a shit load of weird porn (‘The Internet’ must of been a freak! I bet it took a lot of good stories to it’s grave) i happened to notice ‘My First Earthquake’ just released their 2ND EP CRUSH

my assumption is MFE was anticipating our mutual friends death also, so instead of going through the whole iTunes hassle, they’re just giving the shit away for free (or at least until the burial of ‘The Internet’)

download it FOR FREE on their website here: http://www.myfirstearthquake.com/crush/ 

myspace: http://www.myspace.com/myfirstearthquake  

a fan having issues with the internet’s death channeled his creatitive side and made a video to one of MFE’s latest…

i just found out this MFE song was on rock band? (or one of those games the kids play now a days?)

[the]cocknbullkid

the only thing we love more than a new cocknbullkid song is a new cocknbullkid song remixed. we’ve been in love with this girl (Anita Blay) since the days of active myspace accounts and with tweets about being in the studio w/ @diplo we couldn’t be more excited about her latest album due out soon! though she dropped the “the” from her name and is no longer recording raw tracks from her bedroom, her voice is stronger and prettier than ever!

enjoy this Your Twenties remix of a track simply titled ‘cocknbullkid’ from her upcoming album and if you aren’t already on the cocknbullkid train, catch up now by checking out the links below and vids of favorites titled ‘I’m not sorry’ and ‘On my own’…

Allah-o-Akbar

ever since the rigged elections i’ve had a weird obsession about keeping up with the social movement slowly developing in iran. every few weeks i find myself up late at night googling and youtubing hours of protest videos that for the most part, i can’t even understand. after i get my fix of the nightly Allah Akbar shouts from building tops and grainy videos of protest clashes, i move on in search of music and culture… thats when i found “No One Knows About Persian Cats”.

this gem of a film highlights the challenges Iranian hipsters face in the underground music scene where simple jam sessions come with the risk of a prison term… fictional story with fictional bands but definitely worth the watch… the film is public domain and in native persian… if you’re into it here’s a streaming link w/ english captions…

oh, jason, are you still waiting?

Jason Anderson’s July 4, 2004 has long been mandatory on my playlist for any extensive road trip… i can never remember which austin blogger first introduced me to this master piece, but i will always be grateful…

dear beauty bar,
 we’ve had the weirdest love/hate relationship over the years… sometimes it was just me being bitchy… sometimes it was crowd being bitchy… other times it was just you being bitchy… throughout it all you kept those shots of jameson, rum+diet, lonestar, and nights of free sailor jerrys coming my way chased down with an always legit dj helping me get my dance on…
 i remember when you guys first opened and i told myself i’d never come here again… fast forward to nights i can’t remember or can’t talk about to protect the [not so]innocent… fast forward to any after party festival season where i find myself obnoxiously there 5 days in a row… fast forward to zombie prom where with the help of @amberdemure and @laurenl i lured and secured myself the current wife (9 months converted in gay relationship terms equals 40 years i think)… fast forward just the other week where everything was the usual cluster fuck and the only normality and solace i could find in life was time spent with you…
 i’m hearing different deets… not sure what to make of any it… but hang in there buddy… even when i’m talking shit about you… it’s because i love you and i’m sometimes a needy person who has issues sharing your love with sooo many other people at the same time…
always-

BE GOOD BE FUN

it’s been a weird ride becoming a trusted source by many of you, so i’m asking for your trust and help on this one.

our friend jeremy is in the middle of raising money to travel to india to help build 20 houses for Habitat for Humanity. He’s closing in on his goal but still needs our help.

because i know you guys have a short attention span and hate to read i won’t go on and on about how outstanding jeremy is or how he just naturally radiates good vibes all the time. instead i’ll just give you the deets…

You can help RIGHT NOW by clicking the donate button at the bottom of his blog and/or you can help june 27th by having a little fun at his Chili party! He has promised root beer, real beer, music, prizes, fun, and of course chili galore! (Vegan/Veggie/Meat options available) 

there’s a suggested 10$ donation for 1 bowl of chili, and 20$ for bottomless bowl… personally we’re committing to 30$ and maybe more if we can swing it come june 27th. it’s at Space 12 (meaning i don’t have to leave my zip code!) between 1:30-5pm… RSVP and get the rest of the details here. 

Open up your heart, mouth, and wallet and we’ll see you there! i mean, how do you say no to this adorable face?

It’s QueerBomb Baby! Time for the new gay to step up and finish this equality war.

QueerBomb is a flash Force assembly of LGBTQIA individuals within the community who have found the current strategy and structure of Austin Pride to be non-inclusive, capitalist, heteronormative, safe and unchallenging.”

You know my stance on this or prolly don’t care to read my thoughts anyway, so i’m going to be lazy and post the facebook event word for word…

oh…and if you want to peep some articles about the @QueerBomb vs e$tabli$hed Pride event controversy

See go-go dancers of every size, shape and luxury. Cast your eyes upon celluloid images not meant to be seen by god fearing people. Dance to the musings of two DJ’s programmed to destroy your ears with enough music to cry for. 
The stage is set for local appearances across the board….from the humpins of LITTLE STOLEN MOMENTS, to the rumpins of the KINGS AND THINGS, to the filth and fury of CHRISTEENE.. 
No one will be left untainted by this extravagant display in offering a new celebration to the community for ONE NIGHT ONLY! 
Admission is free…
Door is 18 and up…

Bringing you the rough and tumble musical trade of 
DJ Jay Jay Booya (ATX/ CHRISTEENE) 
and the Northwest rumbles of the legendary 
DJ Chelsea Starr (SF/PORLAND. The woman behind the longest running Lesbian Dance Party in the nation, ‘HOT PANTS’).

To miss this would be unthinkable.

….the night is FULL of events on Friday. QueerBomb will be rolling from 10pm til the cock crows. Plan accordingly and support all that you can!!

QueerBomb has been assembled with boisterous urgency in organizing a counter ‘Pride’ procession that carries a strong Queer message to the streets of Downtown Austin reclaiming the radical, carnal and transgressive lineage of our ever changing community, while celebrating every facet and form of our people as a unique and vibrant whole.”
