A great year for singles, tracks, whatever we call them these days. Here they are in alphabetical order with a bit of commentary, a snippet of lyrics and video.
Wow, what a year! 2015 was wild and varied ride for me personally and musically. I didn’t rank my list this year because I don’t really feel it makes much sense to do so anymore. I loved all of these albums more or less equally but for different reasons, depending on my mood or what I was experiencing in my life at the time. My top ten albums were chosen based on how often I listened to them, artistic achievement or both. Having said all that, there was a clear Number 1 album, which you’ll find out as you read the list. Be sure to also read my list of top songs for 2015. Continue reading “My Top Albums of 2015”
For me 2014 was the year of the podcast. Prior to this year, I had rarely listened to them and now I seem to devote as much time (if not more) to podcasts as I do to music. Also, despite the endless and barrier-free sources of music out there, I sometimes miss the days of scrounging used CD stores or saving up to buy special editions. Somehow I felt more inspired those days! Despite this, I have put together a list of my favorite albums of 2014. Continue reading “Favorite Music of 2014”
It’s that time of the year. RuPaul said in an interview with Rolling Stone I believe that by the end of Season 6, 75 queens will have been released into the wild. I love that!
Over this past weekend, 14 queens were announced, one by one, on various social media sites and then on Logo. They started by just showing photos but sleuthing fans on the Drag Race subreddit figured confirmed quickly who they were. If Ru’s quote is true, that means there will likely be a 15th surprise queen added at the start of the season.
So what happens when one actually tries to buy one of RuPaul’s Drag Race signature Season V fragrances? Get the dirt on Alaska’s Red for Filth, Jinkx’s Delusion, Alyssa’s Secret, Detox’s Heroine, Ru Animale by Coco, Dress Code by Ivy Winters, and Thick & Juicy by Roxxxy – all from a shopkeepers perspective. Watch below and find out.
I’ve enjoyed Rupaul’s Drag Race from its inception. It’s one of the few shows that’s kind of customized for a gay audience, although loved by straight people as well. Season V, however, has not engaged me like other seasons have. Don’t get me wrong. I still love watching every week but I haven’t really fallen in love with any of the queens like I did Sharon and Latrice in Season IV, Raja and Manilla in Season III and Raven and JuJu in Season II.
