Upcoming

The Toronto International Film Fest starts next week.
It’s blockbuster time.

Burn After Reading

Directed by the Coen brothers this has probably the most Hollywood stars. It premiered in Venice yesterday with Bard Pitt, George Clooney, Tilda Swinton in attendance.

Miracle at St. Anna

The new Spike Lee movie. Two years ago, I went to see his 4 hour documentary “When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts“. I was hoping he would give a little speech and Q&A but basically, he only said, here is my documentary, you should not take a break while watching it. Thanks.

Synecdoche, New York

Written & (first time) directed by Charlie Kaufman. The general release date for the film is October 24 but there seems to be no trailer yet.

And now something totally unrelated but unequally more important:

I’m That Chick

There are first rumors that my favourite track of E=MC, I’m That Chick, is the next Mariah single. Expect full coverage right here.

The New Season

That was a fun night that kicked off the new Hotnuts season. Thank you for coming out and making it happen.

Karen and Lex showed up as Wendy O-Mage and gave one of the best Hotnuts performances. There was beaver shaving, tampon eating & dick cutting, all in 4 minutes. What more can one ask for?

The pictures of the performance are after the jump as they are a slightly NSFW.

Maybe these outfits have been influenced by this trip?

The New Me.

The New Me.

You’ve probably been wondering, why doesn’t she have the iPhone already? I know, I know. But there is a simple answer: I was waiting for the pink edition.

I’ve been playing with the new phone for 2 days now and I appreciate all the features. On the other hand, I’m thinking, do I really need it? So, I guess I’m going to return it in the next couple of days. This is the new me. I can admire things from afar. Right.

The iPhone App store is selling about 20 Bible applications. Wanna get them all.

Roisin Murphy covered Slave to Love by Bryan Ferry for Gucci. Listen to the full song in the behind the scenes footage for the new Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme ad (via).

I’m back in Toronto after a long summer in sausageland. After I got here, I had such a sausage craving that I had to buy my favourite Bratwürstchen immediately. I can only recommend Johnsonville sausages. My personal favourites are Brats, Beer’n’Brats and for that extra special German-Canadian fusion taste sensation breakfast sausages with maple syrup.

I kind of want to visit Johnsonville, Wisconsin and do a tour of the sausage factory where I can stuff brats in all my orifices.

Brats mit mir.

Kiss-Off Party

Trannyshack, the long-running weekly drag-show in San Francisco, founded by Heklina is closing the doors. They have a Kiss Off Party on August 23rd featuring their greatest performers and special guests including Lady Bunny and Lady Miss Kier.

The first time I went must have been in ’96 or ’98. And then almost every Tuesday for a couple of months in 2004.

I couldn’t find my most memorable performances online, featuring a drag zombie dancing to Beyonce or blood pouring down a bucket onto the drag queen in a stars and strips bathing suit lip-syncing Irene Cara’s Flashdance, What A Feeling… Anyway, check out Heklina’s and Glamamore’s version of All Is Full of Love:

What are your thoughts on Trannyshack closing its doors as a weekly event?
Lady Bunny: “With all of those hags out of work I am terribly concerned for the safety and sanitation of San Francisco”™s streets!”

Lots of performance videos on youtube & interview with Heklina

Mary & Maddy: A Match Made in Hair-ven?

Mary in Lanvin

Ok. This be crazy. It looks like Mary Messhausen shaved her head just to be in Madonna’s latest video Give It 2 Me.

My dear friend Mary left Germany a week ago and now I make this disturbing discovery. She hadn’t told me about it, because she knows I love long hair. Always have. Now, you tell me, who rocked the Lanvin sunglasses better: Mary Messhausen with short or long hair?

Bekennerschreiben

In der Zwischenzeit wurde “Madonna Und Wir. Bekenntnisse.” veröffentlicht. Aus diesem Anlass möchte ich ein sehr privates Bekenntnis aus meinem Text zu dem Buch preisgeben. Don’t judge.

“Es muss also Silvester 1992 gewesen sein. Toffi und ich waren auf eine Party im Cosmic Space Club in Fulda eingeladen, Madonna und das Sex Buch spukten nun schon seit Monaten in unseren Köpfchen rum. Wir waren so aufgestachelt, dass wir uns inspiriert genug fanden, eine “Sex”-artige Szene auf der Toilette zu inszenieren. Wir schauten uns in dem grossen Raum um und Toffi sagte: “œSetz”™ du dich aufs Waschbecken, hinter den Wasserhahn, dann lassen wir das Wasser laufen und ich trinke wie ein kleines Kätzchen von dem spirtzenden Nass.” Ich versuchte mich also auf das Waschbecken zu wuchten. Mein Hinterteil war kaum auf dem Becken gelandet, meine Füsse hatten soeben den Kontakt zum Fussboden verloren, da passierte es: Zuerst ein Knarzen, gefolgt von einem Riesenknall, einem Bersten, das Waschbecken krachte auf den Boden und ich mit ihm. Meine Hände bluteten. Mein weisses Röckchen war plötzlich rosa und rot. Happy New Year!”

Das Buch kann z.b. hier bestellt werden.

Der, Die, Das Heels

Dear Readers,

After Frankfurt Gay Pride, the tour with Ms. Messhausen led us through 3 countries and 5 cities in 8 days. It was the blast, during which we rediscovered our love for the German article “die” (pronounced dee). As some of you may remember this site started as dieproduzentin.de

After Mary went back to Toronto last Sunday, I needed a rest from the binge purge & shopping excesses. Cocooning seemed like the only solution.

Tuesday night, I watched “Die Stein“, a new TV series about die lustig lüsterne Lehrerleben. A welcome surprise of the show is the former Fassbinder actress Irm Herrman in a supporting role as the school’s secretary.

Anyway, here is a picture of die pumps I bought in Antwerp. Now, I’m asking myself, might die MMM heels be to demure?

xoxo
