Turn It Up

By the time you read this you already know that produzentin loves all new soda pops. Actually, I’m only interested in the big names, Pepsi, Coca Cola and Dr. Pepper.

So, I think when Coca Cola heard of my fabulous Diet Pepsi Jazz campaign, they didn’t want to be second best. Coke wanted to have a produzentin jingle for their freshest creation, too.

Here it is. Coca-Cola Blāk. Coke and coffee.
The wait is over. You don’t have to mix your favourite caffeine drinks together any longer! It’s all here in one bottle.

And finally people can ask: How do you want your Coke? With milk or blāk? Some sugar?

Turn it up with Coca-Cola Blāk!

I'll have my coke blāk, please!
Just blāk, please!

At Vazoween

Last night, Oliver, Anthony and I went to the Vazaleen Halloween party. I wanted to avoid trouble and opted to go as a cheap ass ghost. Look what happened.

My favourite picture is NSFW. Check it out after the jump.

Come to the Sugarshack

I am very excited about our upcoming event.
It’s Sugarshack time at The Power Plant.
So, mark your calendars and get ready for maple sweetness. Please.

Anthony designed another dress for me and he is sewing away night and day at our little sweat shop. I can’t wait to wear the dress at Sugarshack. Anthony is doing such wonderful things…

Anyway, here are the details:

Sugarshack

Thursday, November 2nd, 8pm – 11pm
The Power Plant
231 Queens Quay West

Performance by Bojana

In New England, Quebec and extreme eastern Ontario, the processing of maple syrup has become part of the culture, and city folk often go to the sugarshacks (cabane à sucre) in late autumn, where rustic drinks are served with maple syrup-based products, house and disco music. For this occasion, lifesize models of these sugarshacks are set up. Thick maple syrup flavoured liquor is served with live serbian singing, drag queens and special effects.
Owing to the sugar maple tree’s predominance in south-eastern Canada, its leaf has come to symbolize the country, and is depicted on its flag.

Courtney’s Diaries

I bought Dirty Blonde, The Diaries of Courtney Love, on Saturday. It seems like it got an early release in Canada, it is supposed to come out in the US on the 31st.

At first, I was a bit disappointed because it is not very kiss-and-tell but then Courtney’s story drew me in: angry, eager, tragic, sad and on the other hand, for short periods, very sparkling. Like an emotional roller coaster ride.

Anyway, here is one of my favourite parts, an e-mail exchange between Courtney and Lindsay Lohan. I think I could get celebrity email addicted.

(VF = Vanity Fair. A 1992 article in Vanity Fair entitled “Strange Love”, in which it was alleged that Courtney had continued using heroin in the early stages of pregnancy. As a result, Child Welfare Services briefly investigated the Cobains’ fitness as parents, removing Frances Bean from their custody for a short period. Love claims to this day that she was misquoted, saying she had told author Lynn Hirschberg that she had stopped using it once she learned she was pregnant. (source))

The produzentin website turns 3 today.
It seems like it has been going on much longer. What did I do before its launch? Well, this may be the story of my prequel blog coming to the interweb in the very distant future.

Anyway, I thought that my Diet Pepsi Jazz Jingle didn’t get enough attention. I guess only Pandy listenend to it. So without further ado, here it is again. And this time, do a remix or even better, leave a comment because produzentin depends on comments like Mariah on Butterflies.

Jazz It Up!!!
I am so the spokeswoman for Jazz

Hotnuts 4U

Maybe this was my favourite Hotnuts party. But I’m hoping for the next one, which is during TAAFI on November 11. Mark your calendars.

But first: Thanks to all the Hotnuts, animals and 905ers who came to dance.
It was a wonderful night.

Serious Business at Hotnuts

Okay. Anthony had this wonderful confetti suit and maybe I was a bit jealous.
Just maybe. Anyway, he looked marvelous, even after the nine hour executive meeting that he just came from. It was serious business. For sure.

So, here are the amazing pics: The Anthony Confetti Suit Special.
I told youse, it pays to dress up for Hotnuts.

All That Jazz

All That Jazz: Strawberry and Cream

You know I’m a sucker for new soft drinks. So I was extremely excited when I heard about Diet Pepsi Jazz or is it Jazz Pepsi Diet or Jazz by Pepsi Diet. I am especially feeling the Strawberry and Cream flavour. Very yummy. My taste buds are blooming.

Now, I decided to become the spokeswoman for Jazz.
My first statement shall be my Jazz Jingle.
Download. Listen. Jazz it up. Remix.

Yes, you can do your own remix of my Jazz Jingle.
Add some sax or horn. Jazz it up, feel the flavour.

Da’ Change

I did it. I’m off the Frankfurt bill-payer chain. My one year holiday is coming to an end. Bummer, I know. Suddenly, I felt like an unemployed drag queen who is going to live off of welfare soon. Do they have food stamps in this country? (In Germany, I would have applied for Hartz20 immediately. Hartz4 wouldn’t be enough, I need lots of money, maybe even Hartz30).
It could be a new beginning or the end.

The other day, I found a vintage Romanthony record called Da’ Change.
He sings: Love is Power. Love is Change. Make a Change in Your Life.
I bet you think that song is about me.

The song was released on his own label, Black Male Records. Da’ Change hasn’t appeared on his albums or re-issues. The flip side has Hold On, which was re-released on Roulé in 1999. Roulé was the label of Thomas Bangalter, one half of Daft Punk. Two years later, Romanthony sang lead vocals on their international club hit, One More Time.

I have been a Romanthony fan since the early 90ties. I think it all started when I ordered Roman’s records via phone from a record store in Hamburg. It was so cute, they played the tracks over the phone and I was jumping for joy on the other end. I was instantly blown away. His sound had a nastyness that made me happy. And weird noises and samples, spoken parts. Of course the Prince influence was a big plus, too.

The first records I got were Testify #1 and Make This Love Right / Now You Want Me. I still treasure both of them. I couldn’t get enough of Romanthony. One of the records on Black Male had his phone number on the label. One day, I gave it a try and called him. This must have been around ’94 or ’95. Left a message on his machine and never thought I would hear from him.
Then, just a couple of days later, he left a message on mine. I was super nervous and called him right back. He was very friendly and I ordered a bunch of records. The guys from the record store in Hamburg had told me that Romanthony samples U96, a trashy german techno project. I asked him about it and his simple NO gave me relief. Although, it would have been funny.
When the records arrived, they came with a cute hand written note by Romanthony and I was in heaven.

Da' Change

If you need a change now, watch a stripper perform at the last Moustache party ever.
The strip is so fashionable. You know who it is.
I can’t believe it, some ignorant hoes were booing him.

On the Set of Hairspray

Last week, a scene from Hairspray, the musical remake was shot right around the corner from where I live.

Auto Sonic became Motor Mouth Records. In the background to the right is my local LCBO (or liquor store in other words). As you can see in the first shot, the film team built a 50ties store front to cover the entrance and signs.

I guess this scene is supposed to happen in the ghetto of Baltimore. Penny and Tracy arrive in the school bus. The actors were dancing on the bus and on the streets and finally ran across the street into Maybelle’s Motor Mouth Record store.

I’m so glad I didn’t see John Travolta as Divine as Edna Turnblad.
He would have scared the shit out of me.
