Butterflies on a Whip

Mariah sang a couple of songs at One Mighty Party, the first gay and lesbian festivities at EuroDisney. As you might know, I am not a big fan of candids, but this one is good. For various reasons. One being the butterflies on her Mercedes.

In more M news, Jermaine Dupri says Mariah’s new album drops Thanksgiving.
Hal-Le-Lu-Jah!

Are you ready for another Mariah-thon at produzentin.com?

Finally, Martha!

Martha!

I’ve finally recovered from the weekend, but there is one more story to tell. Mary and I went to see Martha Wash at the Pride main stage. It was my first time seeing her live and I was very excited.

From the moment the stepped on the stage to the very last drip of It’s Raining Men (alright, I could live without this song) I thought she is the best ever. Her voice is just amazing. The audience went crazy after the first note she sang. When I saw her dress I told Mary: Please remember this very well, I would like to have a Martha outfit.

After the second song, she took her heels off and said: “I sing better with my shoes off.”
You just have to adore her.

I think this was the set list:
Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)
Everybody Everybody
Give It To You
Carry On
It’s Raining Men

Martha, I Love You

Gay Friday

Friday night, Mary, Margot, Alex and I had tons of fun at The Beaver and The Gladstone. We hopped back and forth between places. Have a look at our Pride tour below.

MMM Fundraiser

Here a couple of pictures of the performances from the fundraiser for Magic, Mystery, or Matrix: A Romance of Many Membranes.

We were all flabbergasted by Karen’s carnivorous cave woman outing.
There was also a hot strip by Chris, including his favourite foods, bell peppers and sausages (you can’t go wrong with that).

Who Is It?

C is for Caracas

This huge painting is by Dina Draeger and will be for sale at gallery Muehlfeld & Stohrer in Frankfurt for the equivalent of 140 big bottles of M by Mariah. Until yesterday I hadn’t even heard of Dina or the gallery.
Let me tell you the whole story:

My friend Mischel Noel discovered the painting by walking past the gallery. The story spread like wildfire and a couple of hours later Doc Nancy visited the scene. The gallery owner told her that Dina said that the picture that the painting is based on was taken at the carnival of cultures in Caracas. Right.

Let me tell you where it was taken:
AT EFFIN GAY PRIDE FRANKFURT IN 2003.

OK. More of my friends went to the gallery, looked at the painting and spoke to the owner. Last night he told Bitz (disguised as an art collector) that the painting probably won’t make it into the show, because Dina had lied to him about the origins of the piece. He said that a couple of people came to the gallery and they know the person on the painting.

Now let me ask you, what should I do:

  1. Just be grateful for the amazing painting with its wonderful play of light and colour.
  2. Demand for the nose to be fixed. produzentin doesn’t have such an ugly knobby nose anymore. As everyone nose.
  3. Put my entertainment lawyer on speed dial. There is a smell of big money with which produzentin can buy liters and liters of M by Mariah.

Hit the comments and let me know.

The opening of the show is this Friday, June 22 from 6 to 9 pm.
Please go and show your love. I heard that Dina will be in attendance.
The gallery is located next door to a popular gay sauna at Fahrgasse 27 in Frankfurt.

Triple Threat
Here is another picture straight from the vault.

M by Mariah

It’s not summer yet, but I’m sure fall is going to be great. You must have wondered, what is going on with Mariah? Well, she is just preparing for her triple threat later this year:

New album
New movie, Tennessee
Her first fragrance, M by Mariah Carey

M me. You smell so M. Cover me in M. Can’t wait till M hits the shops.

Update:
M is a floriental. It has top notes of marshmallow and sea breeze accord, a heart of Living Tahitian Tiare and gardenia and a drydown of sheer amber, patchouli and Moroccan incense.

Mariah created the fragrance with perfumer Carlos Benaim of International Flavors & Fragrances, whose previous work includes Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf.

Call Me M

The bottle, created by Elisabeth Arden’s Jean Antretter, is a lavender glass orb with a subtle wave design and a silver rope-patterned neck. The cap is topped by Carey’s signature butterfly. The outer carton features fluttering butterflies, with a front panel that opens to reveal the fragrance.

Sometimes It Sno Balls in June

After a wonderful night out with the best friends one could possibly have, I woke up this morning and treated myself with very very delicious Sno Balls. It’s the perfect breakfast: The balls are pink and sweet from the outside but are dark and lovely from the inside. Layers and layers of fun. Amazing.

Emo Moments

Thank you all for coming out last night, it was so much fun.

I think Gartina’s performance was the best of hers yet. After her android inspired lyrics last December, we were wondering what’s next on her list. She sang: “Fuck me with your broken computer.” We screamed for more.
Karl Lagerfeld’s Ponytail did a wonderful gig of their hits La Lohan and Ponytail.

Overpowered II

I’m kinda slow this Friday evening and Roisin Murphy is on a fashion roll. Just a few minutes after finding out about the single cover, here is the video to Overpowered (real, youtube). It seems Roisin is over V&R already, riding the 283 bus, doing her laundry and taking a piss in a lovely Gareth Pugh ensemble. I so want to be like her.

Mucho Nucho

Yesterday I spent a wonderful afternoon with my dear friend Margot. She just came back to Toronto from visiting her family in Nova Scotia. Margot had lots of amazing stories to tell and a delicious recipe to share. She knows I love all things east coast.

This cookie recipe is apparently a tradition of her family. They are called Mucho Nuchos. They don’t require baking and are a tasty treat.
So, if you want to surprise your guests, here is the run down:

3 bags of peanut butter chips
3 bags of chocolate chips
3 cups of peanuts (give or take)
1 bag of salted potato chips (Ruffles are suggested)

This is all you need

Mucho Nuchos: A heavenly feast.

get coke plus with it
Just a little suggestion: wash them down with some Diet Coke plus
(that’s Diet Coke with added vitamins and minerals)
Margot and I love to have a balanced diet.
