The Big Gay Post

So how has everyone been. I’ve been trying to update more often but life keeps getting in the way. Damn getting paid to write.

Which reminds me, hey I wrote this, you should go read it and say how awesome it is.

Cyndi Lauper
Come On Home (Techno Vox)
Come On Home (Techno Dub)
Come On Home (Jungle Vox)
Come On Home (Junior’s Sound Factory Mix)
Come On Home (Factory Dub) (Short Version)
Come On Home (Extended Club Mix)

I think I’m gay for Cyndi Lauper, does that make any sense? I mean, dudes who like chicks aren’t supposed to dance like a retard to house remixes of songs by gay icons are they? But who makes these rules? Why can’t a big guy from Pittsburgh who likes football and Motorhead also rock out to synthpop and fabulous house music? Fuck that. If I want to listen to Erasure and watch a marathon of RuPaul’s Drag Race one day and listen to 2 Live Crew and watch Charles Bronson movies the next (Bronson is the manliest man ever, that’s a fact) then that’s my business!

These remixes kick ass, if you haven’t picked up on that already. The 12” for this lists the tracks in a pretty interesting way actually. Side one is labeled as the “techno” side, while the b-side is called the “house” side. The descriptions are dead on, although I think dubbing one track “Jungle Vox” was pushing it.

One more note about this single. The tracklisting says that the “Junior Sound Factory Mix” is 11:43 long. Now, I recoded this sucker twice to be sure, and it’s coming out to about 11:07 for me. If it’s skipping over a 30 second bit of the song it’s doing a damn good job of hiding it.

Boy George
Don’t Take My Mind On A Trip (Main Club 12″)
Don’t Take My Mind On A Trip (12″ U.K. Acid Dub)
Don’t Take My Mind On A Trip (Boris & Chris 12″)
Don’t Take My Mind On A Trip (Main Club 12″)

I am NOT gay for Boy George. Sorry. These tracks are from a 12” single that bought mostly to see if the “acid” mix really was acid house. It sadly wasn’t . Not a bad track really, but not at all my style.

    Thanks. I don't think I've ever heard Boy George quite like that.

    Incidentally, the first Boy George mix in the list looks like it might be mislabeled. Based on the file name, I'm guessing it's actually something like "Don't Take My Mind On A Trip (12" U.K. Acid Mix)," yeah?

    This is the 21st century, there are plenty of gay guys who like Motorhead and football. So maybe you're not all that straight. J/K
