SISSYDUDE LOVES: YEARS & YEARS’ “WORSHIP” VIDEO (via Towleroad)

worship

TOWLEROAD: Alexander, who is openly gay, has been vocal about wanting to make music and music videos that are blatantly queer. He told Gay Times of this latest endeavor,

“I want to stare down fear and intolerance with the queer eyes in my queer face. I want to try to not be afraid. I know I’ll make mistakes, but I want to keep going.

“I’ve seen the incredible amount of support and love from our fans and I’ve learnt a lot from them. I can only hope that the dialogue continues and we trust each other enough to carry on.”

The video was directed by Matt Lambert and choreographed by noted choreographer Ryan Huffington. What resulted is what Alexander described as a “magical queer creative energy.”

[Intro: Messy Mya]
What happened after New Orleans?
Bitch, I’m back by popular demand

[Refrain: Beyonce]
Y’all haters corny with that illuminati mess
Paparazzi, catch my fly, and my cocky fresh
I’m so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress (stylin’)
I’m so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces
My daddy Alabama, Momma Louisiana
You mix that negro with that Creole make a Texas bamma
I like my baby hair, with baby hair and afros
I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils
Earned all this money but they never take the country out me
I got hot sauce in my bag, swag

[Interlude: Messy Mya + Big Freedia]
Oh yeah baby, oh yeah I, ohhhhh, oh yes I like that
I did not come to play with you hoes
I came to slay, bitch
I like cornbreads and collard greens, bitch
Oh yes, you best to believe it

[Refrain: Beyonce]
Y’all haters corny with that illuminati mess
Paparazzi, catch my fly, and my cocky fresh
I’m so reckless when I rock my Givenchy dress (stylin’)
I’m so possessive so I rock his Roc necklaces
My daddy Alabama, Momma Louisiana
You mix that negro with that Creole make a Texas bamma
I like my baby hair, with baby hair and afros
I like my negro nose with Jackson Five nostrils
Earned all this money but they never take the country out me
I got hot sauce in my bag, swag

[Chorus: Beyonce]
I see it, I want it
I stunt, yeah, little hornet
I dream it, I work hard
I grind ‘til I own it
I twirl all my haters
Albino alligators
El Camino with the ceiling low
Sippin’ Cuervo with no chaser
Sometimes I go off, I go off
I go hard, I go hard
Get what’s mine, take what’s mine
I’m a star, I’m a star
Cause I slay, slay
I slay, hey, I slay, okay
I slay, okay, all day, okay

Okay, okay, ladies, now let’s get in formation, cause I slay
Okay ladies, now let’s get in formation, cause I slay
Prove to me you got some coordination
Slay trick, or you get eliminated

[Verse 1: Beyonce]
When he fuck me good I take his ass to Red Lobster, cause I slay
When he fuck me good I take his ass to Red Lobster, cause I slay
If he hit it right, I might take him on a flight on my chopper, cause I slay
Drop him off at the mall, let him buy some J’s, let him shop up, cause I slay
I might get your song played on the radio station, cause I slay
I might get your song played on the radio station, cause I slay

I just might be a black Bill Gates in the making, cause I slay

[Chorus: Beyonce]

[Bridge: Beyonce]
Okay ladies, now let’s get in formation, I slay
Okay ladies, now let’s get in formation
You know you that bitch when you cause all this conversation
Always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper

[Outro]
Girl I hear something, thunder
Golly this is that water boy, oh lord

wikipedia: “An Englishman in New York” is a single released by Godley & Creme, from their 1979 album Freeze Frame.

Janelle Monáe Releases Visceral Protest Song, ‘Hell You Talmbout’ (via NPR)

Jidenna-protest-616x560

NPR: R&B singer Janelle Monáe released a blistering 6 1/2-minute protest song on Friday called “Hell You Talmbout.” The song’s premise is simple, and that simplicity is the source of its power. The lyrics are the chanted names of black Americans killed by police and vigilantes, followed by the phrase “say his name” or “say her name.”

SISSYDUDE LOVES: 70’s BDSM ROCKER JOHN “SMOKEY” CONDON !!! (via ADVOCATE, BUTT and Others)

smokey cat

CHAPTER MUSIC: In 1973, two wide-eyed young music fans made their way to Los Angeles and were introduced by a notoriously touchy-feely road manager for the Doors. They fell into a relationship that would produce five of the most criminally neglected singles of the decade, as well as a treasure trove of unreleased recordings. John “Smokey” Condon was a bewitchingly beautiful Baltimore transplant, himself no angel after spending his teenage years partying with the John Waters crowd. EJ Emmons was a budding record producer from New Jersey, already starting to work in small studios around Hollywood.

Smokey_at_English_Disco-EJ_Emmons-670x1024

Condon had marched in New York the night after the Stonewall Riots in 1969, and so by the time he and EJ created Smokey, they weren’t about to hold back. Released in 1974, first single Leather b/w Miss Ray wasn’t just openly gay, it was exultantly, unapologetically gay, examining front-on the newly-liberated leather and drag scenes thriving in America’s urban centres.

SISSYDUDE LOVES: SCOTT 3 (1969)

00602537409037-cover-zoom

Some kind stranger asked me today… “What is your favorite album”? I thought for a second or two… was it The Smith’s The Queen Is Dead? Sinatra’s “Only The Lonely”? And then out of the blue I told him Scott Walker’s “Scott 3”. So here it is. If you are not familiar with it give it a try. A geeky (and very cute) buddy of mine turned me on to Walker in the early ’90s but Walker’s music just didn’t click with me till a few years later… and I’ve adored his stunning vocals and atmospheric arrangements ever since. As much as I appreciate his weird and dark recordings of the 1990s and 2000s, it’s his 60’s & 70’s recordings that are very dear to my heart.

Scott 3, 1969 Lp, is the third solo album by singer songwriter Scott Walker. All songs written and composed by Scott Walker (credited as Noel Scott Engel), except where noted.

And here is one of my fave Walker tracks (not on Scott 3) “Joe”.


lovely sunday morning tuneage… DANE TERRY’S “COLOR MOVIES” (via walt c)

Article-7456729-DaneTerry

“To say Color Movies is a group of songs about my childhood and adolescence is true but insufficient,” Terry admits. “It’s a few memories in glass; the result of a maddening stock-taking effort; counting cans with unreadable labels. But I have a markedly questionable, impressionistic memory. I can’t know what is true and verifiable about my life. everything is so hazy. everyone was so sad. All of this is to say some of Color Movies is true, and some is fantastic fiction and I don’t know which is which. I never did.” – Dane Terry
