Sorry for another abbreviated post. It’s been a long few days (in the good way!) and I can barely keep my eyes open right now. Tomorrow’s post will be epic in both music and writing I promise you that.

I would pay a thousand bucks to see a collaboration between the two artists I’m featuring tonight.

Whatcha See is Whatcha Get (D & D Bentley Mix)
Whatcha See is Whatcha Get (RuPaul Talk Radio)
Whatcha See is Whatcha Get (Acapella)
Whatcha See is Whatcha Get (Dubs 2)
Whatcha See is Whatcha Get (Dubs 3)
If you don’t see the inherit humor in a drag queen performing a song with that title, well then there’s no helping you.

I think it’s about time I came out of the closet…as a huge fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race! I hate reality TV, but I find the utter fabulousness of that show consistently fascinating and hysterical. This season was probably the best yet, and not just because someone who was deserving finally fucking won.  I think you can still watch the show on Logo’s website, I suggest checking it out. RuPaul is the shit yo.

I need to get more of RuPaul’s music. She’s a shockingly good singer and has some great tunes. But what I’m really interestedthough isher early stuff. I’ve heard some stuff off of Sex Freak and it sounds crazy. RuPaul was punk rock! Who knew? Anyone know where I can get a copy of that weird record?

Gary Numan
My World Storm (12” Mix)
My World Storm (Instrumental)
This Wreckage (Metalmorphosis Mix)
Are ‘Friends’ Electric? (Metalmorphosis Mix)
For the past few days I’ve been going through all my CDs and cataloging them. Spoiler: I have a lot of CDs.

When you have as many stupid CDs as I do, you start to forget that you own stuff. For example, I completely forgot that I bought a CD single of “Rip” a few years ago, I never even ripped it to my computer (ironically enough). While “Rip” isn’t the best Numan song, the “Metalmorphosis” mixes that are included with it are pretty awesome,  each taking these two classic Numan songs and reworking them into his more modern style. Sure, he does that a lot (he even releases an entire two-CD set dedicated to that) but they’re still worth listening to. I may be a bit bias though, I’d probably listen to a cabaret version of “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?” and still dig it.

The “My World Storm” remixes were taken from a 12″ single that I bought a few months back in Miami but never got around to posting for some reason. “My World Storm” is from the early 90s, an era that was not Numan’s best. I still like the tune though, even if it’s more than a bit dated.
