Auf’d at Très Fatty Gay

Saturday a week ago, I was part of the opening of Cosima von Bonin’s exhibition “The Fatigue Empire”. I had the honour of kicking people out of the Kunsthaus Bregenz. Sounds like the perfect job for me, right? My friend Doc Nancy was also there and drove the car through the 2nd floor of the Kunsthaus. Drink’n’Drive has never been more fun.

I started throwing people out on the 3rd floor by presenting “You Are Auf’d” postcards, which didn’t go down so well. Most people just wanted to stay. So, I said: “All cute people have to leave and you are very cute. Just look around, who’s left?!”.
And down the stairs they went.

Now you can call it performance. But when is a drag queen not performing? HELLO?!

Check out some pictures below and more after the jump. Even more pictures on flickr.

She Got Schooled

Yesterday, I heard How Long by Lipps Inc. for the first time. Immediately, I felt like a little schoolgirl but acted all super butch. No one around me noticed what was going on deep inside of moi. (Not that this is a change from any other day.)
Anyways, I got my disco lesson.

If you don’t know what I’m about, just listen to Justus Köhncke’s club hit from 2004, Timecode, which I now love even more.

p.s. and of course How Long is a cover version to begin with

Get Over It (July) and Get Into It (August)

There’s no Hotnuts in July. We need a short summer break. Sorry. BUT – we’re coming back with a megabang at the end of August. Cody Critcheloe of SSION (prəˈnounst ‘shun’) is going to be in town for the Toronto premiere of his movie BOY. The screening is going to be at Mercer Union on Saturday, August 28.

And afterwards, join us for Hotnuts. Or will it be Boynuts? I dunno. Cody will be performing and shake some iPods. And I heard, KevinHBomb might bring some house music?! YAY!

For a SSION mixtape, head over to DIS magazine.

Clown, one of my favourite songs from the SSION album, got a music video this year. You have probably seen this already, if not, get on it… Kansas City, here we go.

How Do You Say, Fatigue?

It’s best to pronounce it like really gay. Fatty gay.
Can you use it in a sentence? “I’m so fatty gay.”

Cosima von Bonin has a big opening at Kunsthaus Bregenz on Saturday, July 17. I’m very honoured and excited to be part of the night. Right after the opening, there is a party on a boat, where Viola Klein and myself will be djing for all friends, party people and the sea urchins in Lake Constance. If you want to be local, just call it Bodensee. Basically, it’s like Lake Ontario but for Germany and Austria.

What is she going to wear to such an event, you might ask yourself?
Glad you asked. I’m going to wear a dress by Mary Messhausen (of course!), but from her Mary’o’nette collection. The dress features a digital silk print by the one and only Pandy Ramada. I’m so spoiled already. And this is not a hint.

Can’t wait for The Fatigue Empire.
Join in on an exciting night.

HELLO

Tomorrow, it’s a big Frankfurt reunion. I’m djing with Viola, Bitz and Steffen at Alex Sinclair’s Hello party! It is going to be super hot in town, so be sure to wear almost nothing. Very excited about this. And it is a new location for us. YAY!
