Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays, dear readers.

I would like to share a quote from Myra Breckinridge by Gore Vidal, which I am currently reading. It uses one of my favourite holiday related words, which I had never heard before this December (thanks to El Bear Ho): Bauble.

“I preferred to be Greer Garson, a gracious lady whose compassionate breasts were more suited to be last pillow for a dying youth than the baubles for the coarse hands of some horny boy.”

A Pink Bauble

E=MC² is about to be released tomorrow and Mariah is on all channels.
It’s basically like Christmas in April.

April 15th 8:00pm, FOX, American Idol
April 16th 7:30pm, BET, E=MC²: The Relativity of Mariah

Another highlight is happening in NYC: during the weekend of April 25-27 the Empire State Building lights up in purple, pink and white for E=MC².

One of my favourite E=MC² reviews is courtesy of The Guardian, here is an excerpt:

“Endearingly ditzy high-camp abounds on E=MC². The very first notes of the album find Carey swooping around her famed whistle register, revelling in how high her voice can go, before metamorphosing into a synth whistle riff. Over the course of the album, Carey compares herself to ice cream, the lottery, a chandelier, Biggie and 2Pac, weed and her favourite jeans. On the glorious disco bounce of OOC, she breaks into Italian, Spanish and French in the space of one verse for no discernible reason other than that she can (surely the very essence of divadom). (…)
Brilliantly, the music more than matches Carey’s flights of fancy.”
