Minnie Driver’s Managing Expectations

A couple weeks ago, Minnie Driver did a discussion and book signing in Madison, CT thanks to R.J. Julia Booksellers. I bought a ticket to the event since I’m a fan of some of Minnie’s movies, I appreciate hearing authors talk about their books and I’m always a sucker for autographed merch. If I wasn’t…

Wild Fire’s In Between

Wild Fire is one of my newest diva discoveries who know how to feed my addiction for autographed merch. As with all good deals, it started last year with a free sample of their autographed CD “Phases” with a signed 8X10, which I took advantage of. This year I paid up and pre-ordered their new…

Chloe Moriondo’s Puppy Luv EP

I discovered Chloe Moriondo’s music back in July of last year. Their new EP, Puppy Luv, in my gay opinion, is some of their best music to date. Puppy Luv has a running pet-friendly theme which could have gone horribly wrong but Chloe makes it enjoyably right.  The EP starts out cheerily-upbeat with the song “sammy”…

Lisa Remar’s hi… EP

Lisa Remar crams a whole lot of heart-on-her-sleeve confessionals into less than ten minutes on her new four-track EP, hi…. Lisa has a Dido-esque, sorrowful, slow-song sound with electric guitar wailings that match the heart-wrenching lyrics perfectly. The short (and anything but sweet) intro, “sometimes…,” begins the EP with the anxiety of waiting on someone…

Harvey Fierstein’s I Was Better Last Night

I used to go to a church weekly only because it was where my yoga class was held. However, I’ve been in some famous churches, mosques and synagogues when traveling. In Italy…

Raquel Lily’s Fixations

Back in April of 2020 I was introduced to Raquel Lily through her single “Mary” and included it on a post I did at the time. I’ve been waiting and finally after two years, I get to hear Fixations, her full album.  “Mary” introduces the album with her smooth old-school R & B sound, pro-pot…

Taylor Alxndr’s 1993

1993, what a year! I was ordering Cyndi Lauper’s Hat Full Of Stars and Belinda Carlisle’s Real CDs to fulfill my Columbia House membership. I was running to the theater and falling more in love with Tina Turner because of Angela Bassett’s portrayal of her in What’s Love Got To Do With It. And I…

Kile J’s Honey

Kile J’s new EP is sweet and smooth, just like Honey. No bees were harmed in the making of this EP, so this vegan is eating it up. This new-to-me, non-binary diva delivers a positive message over infectious beats that are sticky nuggets of musical bliss that stay in your head after a few listens.   With so…

Madi Diaz’s Same History, New Feelings

It was Diva Deals Day at My Gay Opinion last week. I took advantage of Bandcamp Friday, where all the proceeds of purchases went directly to the artists. I purchased Madi Diaz’s new EP, Same History, New Feelings. Madi took four songs off her last album, History Of A Feeling, and reworked each with a…
