Music Monday: Dancing shoes

I have been rocking out to Dragonette for the last couple of weeks. I posted a video I got from Jimmy a while back by them (i think it was fixin to thrill).

Martina the lead singer is so fucking awesome. In my fantasy world her, Emily Haines from Metric and Beth Ditto from the Gossip have all joined together to form a vagtastic rock/dance supergroup who do face melting covers of old HEART tunes along with original material that blows your mind. I think they would be called The Balls mostly because I can't fathom a guy band that could go toe to toe with these ladies. As a side note they would be managed by Chrissie Hynde.

You can imagine my joy when I found this on my facebook news feed. Via Anna... Kaskade Featuring Martina from Dragonette.

Music Monday: Walking into the light

Sorry all this post was supposed to auto post on monday.

I have been obsessively listening to the new Scissor Sisters album Night Work (itunes link) for the past couple of weeks. I love the feel of the album its 80s its disco its pop and its oh so fabulously gay in the best way possible.

Invisible Light is by far the stand out song for me. It sort of embodies the whole album with a greasy hot club beat.

It reminds me of going to the roost when i was but a wee gay and walking up to the bar all nervous and pent up hearing the muffled beat of the music from the line up outside. The beat builds as I weaved my way through the sweaty shirtless men towards the dancing lights and music and eventually making my way to the dance floor ( back when I used to dance).
Sir Ian Mckellen does a spoken voice over for the song and plays a sort of ringmaster/narrator urging you closer into the invisible light.

It all comes together so well and is a really danceable tune. Check it out below:

Being a productive on a saturday

Today has been super busy in a good way. The fella and I went to the Edmonton downtown city market that they set up on 104 Street. The farmers market was pretty busy and we managed to bump into some friends while we were sampling the wares and some great three chilli cheese bison smokies.

I picked up some organic locally produced organic goat cheese and some fresh veggies.

When we got home the fella started cleaning the condo (which was desperately needed) and doing laundry while I went about making some chicken breasts stuffed with goat cheese, sundried tomatoes, onions and some balsamic vinegar. It was sooo good.

We also watched Doomsday which was a surprisingly good post-apocolyptic movie. Loved the action the random bits of humour and the creative ways they came up with beheading (seriously it seems to be a big feature of the film). It had so many different cool elements and the lead Rhona Mitra (now on Startgate SGU) actress kicked ass.

Tonight its off the the bear swim at Eastglen pool which should be nice for a cool off.

Recovery mode initiated

I am finally feeling human again after the CRIR rodeo. I have to say this was by far the most enjoyable rodeo yet! Argra really put on a good show for us.

Our pink shirts that we got to help promote a high school Gay Straight Alliance were a big hit
we all had our pictures taken a lot.We managed to fit in so much fun this year we figured there is no way to top it next year. So next year the fella and I are going to switch it up and participate in the actual rodeo. This year Argra threw a rodeo school for beginners which was a huge success. The fella and I are going to participate in that and I am finally going to participate in a few events. I sort of accidentally found a team for Wild Drag and maybe the Steer Deco and I will for sure be doing the Chute Doggin.

I am so excited about next year at this point! I have been wanting to participate in this for a long time and having a team is going to finally make me commit to it which is great.

Here are some pics from the event.
