I’ve never seen a skank like her. Check out CHRISTEENE.
L O V E that she has D U M P written on her knuckles.
We’re fed big sugar-coated turds everyday on television and in the news and the magazines and we greedily eat it up like dirty babies. CHRISTEENE is giving you that stank turd without the diamond sugar on it. It’s the same thing. It’s the real thing. Eat it. (source)

After I read the interview with Claire Boucher / Grimes (below) in which she mentions that she had a 4:20 Mariah Fantasy and that MC is her favourite singer, I couldn’t be skeptical any longer. And I mean about what? The Montreal native has just released a gay-impact video to the pop hit single Oblivion featuring her naturally high-pitched voice.
There is only one wish: In the last scene of the video, where Claire is wearing a hoodie and then turning around, facing the camera, wouldn’t it been cute if she wore a skull mask – as a reference to the Visions album cover?
On a side note: What is happening to me? I’m listening to more and more Canadian music. First The Weeknd, now Grimes. What’s next? Bieber?
Claire Boucher: (…) Mariah Carey is my favorite singer because her voice sounds utterly groundless. It’s not even a human voice; it almost sounds mechanical.
Pitchfork: How did you first get into Mariah?
Claire Boucher: In 2007 or 2008, I started listening to R&B on this road trip with my dad because we couldn’t agree on anything else. I smoked weed and listened to “Fantasy” and felt something I’d never felt before [laughs]– yeah, that makes me sound so ignorant. But then I slowly started gravitating more toward female singers, because I was able to relate. In medieval Christian thought, it was assumed that the better you were as a singer, the purer your heart was. I don’t necessarily think that’s true, but Mariah Carey has the voice of someone who has never done evil. (source)
At first I was scared because the music at the beginning of the song sounds like Bruce Springsteen.
Then came the holes. Then the neuronal spaghetti person. She’s scuuured now.

Apparently this is a well know joke in Bavaria and maybe all over Germany. Maybe worldwide?
My friend Sabs made me listen to Wuthering Heights today and said listen closely, right after the chorus you can hear Kate sing in German:
“Ich steh’ im Cafe und hab’ Hunger”
I will never hear it differently. Too funny.
Are there any more secret German messages in English pop songs? I’m intrigued.
“Heathcliff, it’s me, Cathy, I’ve come home”

What took the interwebz so long?
Everyone has been asking me, can’t you hear it? It has the same melody as Express Yourself. I guess I needed to have it slammed out in front of me.
Anyways, here is my first Lady Gaga posting. In form of a mash up.
I know, I’m always ahead of my time.

Coming Up is a disco funk US & Canadian number one single released by Paul McCartney in the spring of 1980. I got into it when I found a disco re-edit by Justus K the other day. The video features 10 Paul and 2 Linda McCartneys and a drum kit print of “Plastic Mac Band” poking fun at John Lennon’s and Yoko Ono’s “Plastic Ono Band”. I’ve never been into the former Beatles music or his humor but here we go.
Watch the video
I first saw this clip when Cody Critcheloe of SSION tweeted it two weeks ago. Forgot about it and remembered today.
This afternoon I thought, it would be genius to have Ke$ha at Hotnuts with her vapid lyrics and exactly this performance. On the other hand, the tiny German flags on the backup dancers’ outfits make me want to roll my eyes into the back of my head. Or to quote a line from the song: “Our bodies going numb.” But I don’t want to let these things take the great camp of the performance away from me.
