ASMR

If you’re like me and out of the loop on practically everything, you may not have heard of ASMR. I had heard of it in passing but never looked into it. Once I did, my mind was blown. What is ASMR? According to the internet, it is Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response which are fancy words…

My Second Annual Divas Playlist

2021 has been a busy year. I spent a large chunk of free time searching out new-to-me divas to follow like Babygirl, Taylor Alxndr, Girl In Red, and Litany. A few of my prolific divas like Donna De Lory, Paula Cole, Natalie Imbruglia and Tori Amos dropped highly-anticipated (by me) albums. Most surprising, Debbie Gibson…

Craptastic Christmas Classics 2021

For someone who isn’t religious and doesn’t celebrate Christmas, I have a sleigh full of holiday music (in laymen’s terms, that’s almost 24 hours straight, of not so straight hours, of diva delights) in my collection and December is the time I binge all the craptastic Christmas movies that I can. This year I got…

Wild Fire’s Phases

Let me start this post with two disclaimers. #1: I think Facebook is totally evil and Mark Zuckerberg would sell his grandma to make a buck. However, all my divas use it so I need an account (not tied to me personal) to keep track of new music. #2: This is the first time I’m…

Holigay 2021

Well, it’s that magical time of the year again when divas feel festive and spread some choral cheer. This year Santa wasn’t overly generous but he did stuff my stocking with one new album and a few singles. Kristin Chenoweth’s new holiday album might be titled “Happiness Is…Christmas” but, in my gay opinion, happiness is…

ENTITY’s Visions In Black EP

When recently introduced to ENTITY’s Visions In Black EP, her sound was described as “queer goth electro/pop” so I expected loud, ear-bleeding, musical angst. Instead I met Carly Rae Jepsen’s evil twin sister from another mother. ENTITY’s sound is darker and harder than Carly’s but her pop stylings worked their way into my brain the…

A Holiday Story With A Happy Ending

Twas the month before Christmas When all through my blog Not a creature was stirring Not even a groundhog The mailmen were stalked by the box with a glare In hopes that Sidewinder’s bauble soon would be there… Our story starts a long, long time ago (or at least it feels that way, in my…

Zuzu’s Queensway Tunnel

New-to-me diva Zuzu’s album Queensway Tunnel doesn’t have the pop sound that I typically seek out, however her style is so unique and honest, there was no way I couldn’t be drawn in. Zuzu is a solid singer-songwriter who can fluctuate between eternal love (“Endlessly Yours”) to storing an ex’s bones in her closet (“Never…

Susanna Hoffs’ Bright Lights

“Walk Like An Egyptian!” “Manic Monday!” “Hazy Shade Of Winter!” “Eternal Flame!” I love me The Bangles. However, in 1991 when I heard Susanna Hoffs’ solo song “My Side Of The Bed” for the first time, I was like “The Bangles who?” Her first solo album When You’re A Boy is one of my favorite…

Alyssa Milano’s Sorry Not Sorry

I’m a huge fan of Japanese pop-music icon Alyssa Milano as well as her work on the TV shows Who’s The Boss, Melrose Place, Charmed (one of the best shows ever created, in my gay opinion), and Insatiable. Back on March 30th, 2009 I went to Borders in New York City for a book signing…
