Hotbox Hotnuts

Wow. That was a great 4 year anniversary party. Thanks for a fun filled night. Jamaica set the stage on fire. Her dj companion, DJ No Problem, provided distorted dance hall beats to “Jump Up And Wave”. The energy levels were through the roof! And Jamaica is one bendy queen.

Before and after Jamaica’s performance, DJ Mi-Nuh Care (@JeremyLaing) played the finest reggae and dance hall songs. One of the hits of the night was “Twice My Age“, with the wonderful lyrics: “I’m in love with a man nearly twice my age.” I also loved that Mi-Nuh Care played the annoying but fun “Rich Girl”. When I started djing, the dance floor was already cooking with hot riddims. It was all 4 to the floor from then on. I was so happy to finally play the Riva Starr remix of Royal T. And Circles.

Of course, Mary was up to no good with dem boyz & queens and caught a major shlong. So kai kai.

Peg, the drag baby (some say from hell), was in the kitchen all afternoon and prepared some yummy cookies for us. El Bear Ho couldn’t stop eating them and was kind of baked the minute we arrived at The Beaver. We had to pump one liter of Coke down her throat to bring her back to party.

This is our 4 year anniversary party. It’s official, we’re the granny night at The Beaver.
Come early to avoid line uppppppp.

Let It Burn

Recently, I started asking friends at parties what their all time favourite song is. Usually, people enter in a kind of blank stare, hypnotized mode, thinking hard & going back in time through a wormhole. Before I get to bored, waiting for um-teen minutes for an answer, I blare out: “Mine is Burn by Usher.” Most of the time, this is greeted with laughter, disbelief and mockery. I don’t care, ’cause the haters can’t take Burn away from me.

Also, a lot of people don’t seem to remember that I’m in the video. It was a very exciting time in my life when Usher’s manager called and said: “Ush wants and needs you in his next clip.” I just screamed into the phone: “Where is my flight ticket?” and hung up. Next thing you know, I was in L.A. shooting a video with Usher under burning palm trees. My love was burning up for him. SO HOT.

Of course, I’m totally into lyrics of the song. At the beginning, Usher is so sure that the relationship is over. Only when he calls his new “girlfriends” by the ex’s name, he realizes the big mistake. But Usher knows, the boss lady ain’t coming back. So he has to: LET IT BURN.

He loved this picture of me, so demure.
Ok, I’m not really in this frame, but we did a photo shoot for the big picture on the wall.

Always on his back.
This scene features a one of a kind Usher jacket with a print of me in Japanese drag on the back. So cute.

Hello, Ushy, I'm behind you!
Another fun Burn moment. I mean does he even recognize I’m still thurr for him? As you can see, I was trying my hardest to get noticed.

Stop the engines, Ush, Boss Lady on the road!
I ruined a couple of shots for this scene on purpose. I wanted to show my pretty make up and always turned around to blink my lashes. This would have been so good. Anyways, it was lots of fun to stop Ushy in the middle of the road. Total Boss Lady style.

And now, just check out the full clip. Burn.

Hotnuts Volcanic Asses

Saturday night at Hotnuts Volcanic Asses. Fay Slift performed “It’s Oh So Quiet” and “Telephone” and shut air traffic down. There was so much enery on stage that a swan fell around Fay’s neck. So cute.

I wish I had a picture of Mary deep tonguing one of the birthday boys. What a present!
And even Ms. Guðmundsdóttir came by to rim the volcanic asses. Just have a look…

Thunder only happens when it’s Hotnuts

Crystal Visions took the Hotnuts stage by storm. She performed Dreams, Landslide and Gold Dust Woman for the full Stevie Nicks realness. The Beaver was filled with lace and tambourines. Update: Watch the complete performance

Mary Messhausen created the stunning dresses for huurself and me. I’m not sure if there ever was a Hotnuts when we both wore black?! But you can’t go wrong when you have hot lace fringes and gold polka dots.

Anyways, it was a great night, thank you all for making it happen. xo.

TanukiNuts

On Saturday, we had our Tanuki themed Hotnuts. Thanks so much for coming out, it was a blast.

As it was Ben Ben Samuur Iman Yoshi YamaNoFrills’ (yes, that is her full name) birthday, Mary Messhausen called BBSIYY on stage and gave her a tea pot night light as a present. I guess now, she’ll always find the way to the bathroom at night, no more wet sheets! YAY!

The Thigh Master Slaves took the stage shortly after. It was a perfect Hotnuts performance: big balls, blood and dancing. Everybody in the audience wanted a ballsexamination after.

More pictures after the jump. Even more on flickr.

Hotnuts Get Your Apps Together

Thanks for partying with us at Hotnuts Get Your Apps Together. The Beaver was rammed. The House of Monroe shook the dance floor with every drip and drop. Again, they brought such a powerful performance, the audience was screaming.

Mary Messhausen had a new friend: the Mary O’Nette.
Mysteriously, they wore the same outfit.

Dance floor killer of the night: Crookers feat. Roisin Murphy – Royal T.
I had to play it twice in a row.

When Mary was pregnant a few months ago, no one, including Mary, heard anything about it again. But then she sneezed and BOOM, there was her drag daughter: Peg.

Goth is a Legitimate Look

Hotnuts Legitimate Look

After a two months break we’re very excited about the upcoming Hotnuts Legitimate Look.

You don’t want to miss the debut performance by Opera Arcana – featuring the legendary G.B. Jones (Fifth Column), who hasn’t been on stage for more than 10 years, Minus Smile (Kids on TV) and Julie Faught (The Pining).

When we asked Minus Smile back in spring to perform at Hotnuts, we never thought that would turn into such a super group. Tomorrow, make sure to check this post again for the wonderful, dreamy video of Opera Arcana’s song The Raven.

And one musical premiere is not enough for Hotnuts Legitimate Look. das hussy has been hard at work on a deep house remix of Woods by Bon Iver. Get your dancing heels ready.
