Sharon Needles’ Debut Album and Video: This Club Is A Haunted House! A Review!

Sharon Needles Album

Wow…we’re not even sure where to start.  Well…If you didn’t know that Sharon Needles, winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 4, was releasing an album, guess what…Yep, she released an album, coincidentally the day after the premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5.  The album, titled PG-13, was released at the same time as the video for her first single This Club is a Haunted House and later be releasing a documentary about the making of the video titled Sharon Needles: Parental Guidance Suggested and will also be releasing a book titled This Book is a Haunted House later this February about the making of the video. (Can you imagine if Nicki Minaj or One Direction released so much fan merch about the making of their videos??? They’d be millionaires…Oh yeah.)

So with all this hype about the release of her album, video and merchandise, how good is the album, really? Pretty damn good.  And we were surprised because as much as we love Sharon Needles and are huge fans, we started to wonder if maybe she was shooting for the stars too early.  Not at all.  She’s one devil of a rock star baby! We had the opportunity to interview Sharon last year, and we were excited to see that her music and her art in the album stayed so true to our interview Sharon Needles Has Balls!

The album consists of 12 songs.  The opening song, This Club is a Haunted House, opens with narration by RuPaul, much like his famous Supermodel song.  In fact, much of the song, as well as the video, is a parody of other artists that you realize instantly that Sharon Needles has a talent for collaborating pieces of other people’s work and poking fun at who she likes the most.  You also see collaboration with Amanda Lepore, Ana Matronic of the Scissor Sisters, Jayne County and even a cameo from her boyfriend AlaskaThis Club is a Haunted House is a strong club song and will be remixed a million times.

Interestingly, her pop song, Call Me on the Ouija Board, is probably one of our favorite songs on the album.  Imagine One Direction meets Jeffree Star meets teenage Satanic pussy cat cheerleaders…and we mean that as a compliment. Love this song! Can’t wait for this video!

Dead Girls Never Say No is highly reminiscent of 80’s bands like, interestingly named, Dead or Alive.  She also say’s “I’ll be a Rosemary’s Baby Tonight” playing off of the horror movie reference of her first track This Club is a Haunted House, where she mentions horror movie direction William Castle.  Sharon definitely knows her shit!

The next track, Drink Til I Die, is like 90’s easy listening queen Basia on crack.  Kind of like filler for the album.

I Wish I Were Amanda Lepore (Ft. Amanda Lepore) is a pop dedication love song of sorts.  Who really cares, right? It’s about Amanda Lepore.  Period.  The song is ok, but a little weak.

Why Do You Think You Are Nuts is where the true Sharon Needles shines! We love this track!  And maybe because it reminds us of small punk rock bands organizing in garages across the Midwest in the late 80’s.  Although, this is a band that will make it! If Sharon had released an entire album of this kind of music, she probably wouldn’t get the pop/club attention she’ll get otherwise, but this is her best work on the album.

Disco Ball…I’m gonna take you for the spin of your life? No thanks.  Really bad lyrics. Enough said.

Of course we loved Dressed To Kill because it’s like a mature version of that punk rock band mixed with the 80’s sound of Dead or Alive, with a little glam rock glittered around in the background.  Perfection.

If Sharon Needles were the villain in a James Bond movie, Let’s All Die would be the title of the film…and the theme song.  We loved that she sings, no one gets out alive, a play on words of the title of the bestselling biography about Jim Morrison of The Doors.  Are we reading to much into this…probably.

Kai Kai (Ft. Ana Matronic and Alaska) Really??? The song is really not bad, but just a year after Let’s Have a KiKi…with a member from The Scissor Sisters??? Yeah really, because this is Sharon’s humor poking fun at the gay obsession with that damn song.  She also pokes fun at it in her video for The Club is a Haunted House when she says the first line of Let’s Have a Kiki.  A kai kai is when two drag queens date…or screw.  So to anyone who says, “She copied that song“…you’re an idiot!

Everyday is Halloween is the definite depressing ballad of the album.  We can already imagine thousands of kids laying in their bedrooms, dressed in drag totally relating to these songs! Every teenager needs an idol, right? Well…adults need idols too!


In Hail Satan (Ft. Jayne County), the real Sharon Needles is back! We are so happy she ended the album with this track, which is so true to some great punk bands, with those combat boots thumping, heisting beer bottles in the air! Great song baby!

And there you have it…the most confusing album since Britney Spears released My Prerogative! And we love them both! Maybe Sharon hasn’t found her exact sound yet, but give her a break, she’s not Leann fucking Rimes for Christ’s sake! Her album is experimental, yet mature, confusing, yet direct, beautiful…yet haunting.

Check out her video below and go buy her album on iTunes.

RuPaul’s Willam Belli and Detox: Boy is a Bottom…NEW Video!

willam belli

Do you think it’s a coincidence Willam Belli released the video for his new song Boy is a Bottom, with Detox and Vicky Vox the same day that Detox premiered on RuPaul’s Drag Race??? Hell…No! But that’s because Willam is a genius.  In fact, people do not give Willam Belli as much credit as he deserves…that’s a fact! Not only has he been in film and television, but he also has these hilarious songs and videos with gal pals Detox and Vicky Vox.  These videos aren’t just parodies…they’re genius! (Remember Chow Down(at Chick-fil-a???)

Although we’re huge Roxxxy Andrews fans, we’re definitely rooting for Detox as well, who seems well on her way as a contender for the crown!

Check out their new video below, Boy is a Bottom, which is a mix of 80’s Wilson Phillips, Alicia Keys’ Girl on Fire and a little bit of En Vogue‘s remake of The Jackson 5’s Who’s Lovin You.  We love this video and we love you three gals!  By the way, best line, “he’s the ratchedess bottom!” Love-it!  Check the video out below!

Men’s Guide to Sex and Relationships: Fifty Shades of Grey


On a regular basis, straight men comment to us about how we’re always surrounded by beautiful women.  What am I doing wrong? They ask.  Why don’t I have all of the hottest girls hanging all over me? The reality is that most men don’t know how to give women what they want.  This summer, the book Fifty Shades of Grey by E L James, has dominated The New York Times bestseller list.  This week, all three books in the trilogy hold the first three spots on the revered list.  We’ve seen these books stuffed into purses, folded over towels at the pool and dog eared on kitchen counter tops.  Women are eating this shit up! Why…because the main character, Christian Grey, is an enigmatic, masculine, curious, intriguing, confident man.  (The fact that he is at times dominant…shhhhh…and overbearing, seems to be quickly forgotten as fantasy abounds!)  Whether women want to admit it or not, Christian Grey, to some degree, represents their fantasy man.  If this weren’t true, the web would not be filled with speculation on who will play Christian in the film adaptation.

Women have made this book famous!

What we don’t understand is why their boyfriends and husbands aren’t reading these books? Men!!!!! These books are literally instruction guides to how to be the perfect man for your wife or girlfriend.  While Christian Grey has much to learn, he also has lots to teach.  Read the damn books.  Not only that, if you really want to make your lady happy…notice her.  Check out what she’s reading, watching on the television and wearing.  Notice when she gets her haircut.  Be the perfect combination between Christian Grey and Atticus Finch.

Be the fantasy…at least some of the time! Women deserve it!

And most importantly, to the women…

50 Shade of Gay…Er…Grey!

Have you heard of the book Fifty Shades of Grey???  We’ve had all kinds of people, yes mostly women, suggest this book to us.  Over this past weekend we pulled out our copies and read it, cover to cover.  Damn this book is hot! We’ll give a review of it later in the week, but for right now we wanted to focus on a question that’s been boggling our minds all weekend.

Why not Christian Gay? 

We don’t want to give away too much of the book if, you haven’t read it, but we could hardly sit in the same room together while reading it for fear of spontaneous, sexual combustion!  (Needless to say, It’s been a good weekend, thanks to E L James, the writer of Fifty Shades of Grey.)

All over the internet there has been speculation about who will play Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of the book.  We have our own guesses and suggestions, which is the topic of our next YouTube video on our YouTube channel, but until then, we wanted to pose a question to our readers.

What if Christian Grey was gay and the book was about a gay relationship instead of a heterosexual relationship?  Who do you think would play Christian in the movie of this gay adaptation and who would play the younger innocent, who we’ll call Andrew??? Can you even imagine?  Do you think Walmart would carry that book in their media section? Equal rights for all: We want Fifty Shades of Gay!

Question of the Day: Who do you want to see play Christian and Ana in the movie adaptation and who would play Christian and Andrew in the gay version? What…a fun game!

Big Brother – BIG Surprise News Update!

Hot off of the ticker on Big Brother After Dark…“With a vote of 5 to 1, JoJo is the next evicted houseguest of Big Brother 14 *Shane is the new Head of Household after scoring 20 points in the competition titled, Thin Ice*In a new America’s Choice Twist, America gets to choose whether or not the coaches will get a chance to enter the game as players and compete for $500,000.  The results will be announced at the next live eviction*Tune in on Sunday for the nomination ceremony…”

There you have it.  Poor, poor JoJo.  If she said it once, she said it 50 times, “No one said Big Brother was fair”.  The girl actually believed because she was such a strong competitor she deserved to stay in the Big Brother house more than Danielle.  At least that’s what she told Julie Chen. But let’s flash back to earlier in tonight’s episode when Ian told Danielle that Shane and JoJo were flirting in the have nots’ room.  Her response: “Hell hath no fury like a woman’s scorn.  And then she went and cuddled with Janelle and Ashley and just happened to let that slip out.  Strongest player our ass.  Danielle knew exactly what she was doing and played it like a pro! Good girl.  We’re still wondering though what Dan meant when he said he had a strategy to throw Britney and JoJo under the bus or was he just bluffing.

Other than that, not much happened.  We’d like to see Joe shave that white stripe down his chin.  We’d like Wil to quit dressing like a stand-in for Britney Spears.  We’d just like Mike Boogie to get thrown off the show.  And we loved finding out that Janelle’s boobs each weigh 8 pounds! Holy BeJesus Janelle! 8 Pounds!

And…did you ever wonder who cleans out that Head of Household bedroom and gets it ready for the next HOH.  How hilarious would it be when someone asked you, “What does your mom do?”, to reply, “Oh, she’s the housekeeper on Big Brother and she cleans out the Head of Household room.

2 Final questions for the night…Why does whispering sound so much more intriguing and mysterious in the Big Brother house? And why does everyone look in the bottom of their plastic cups.  What are they looking for down there????

Oh…and Shane is only 5’9???? Who knew?!

Who cares…we love every second of it!

See ya Sunday!

Poor Willie! Big Brother Rewind!

Didn’t Willie say something about not wanting everyone in the Big Brother house to know his brother was the hothead from Survivor because then they would assume he was aggressive just like his brother? No…we would never think that Willie.  Absolutely not! Oh poor poor Willie!  It’s not like he’s the worst person who ever stepped into the game of Big Brother.  That spot is held for Boogie and we all know it!

But Willie did get kicked off for being violent towards Joe.  Our question though…did anyone actually see Willie headbutt Joe? We rewound the footage several times and it actually doesn’t look like he did headbutt him.  Just saying, because in that case, maybe even the production team is trying to get Willie out before he gets more violent.  Come on folks…don’t you know why he’s so angry…it’s called latent homosexuality.

But our favorite scene from Sunday night was when Joe was trying to lock the HOH door before Willie walked in and he missed it by a mere second, the door flying open in his face.  Hi-larious!

We don’t really care…we liked Willie.  He got a bad rap and everyone put blame on him because, truth be told, then the focus is off of them.  We were shaking our heads when they were all commenting about how he “played the game too hard from the beginning”.  Yeah…wouldn’t want to actually play the game…

For the Shooting Victims of Aurora Colorado…Til Kingdom Come

Sundays in our home are movie nights, usually followed by True Blood.  All week long Alex has been excited to go see either The Amazing Spider-Man or Dark Knight Rises.  Today, while thumbing through our Twitter feed, we saw it quickly fill up with news of President Obama‘s visit to Aurora, Colorado to meet with the victims and the families of the shootings.  I told Alex we could go to see Dark Knight Rises any day, but today, we should go see something else, out of respect for the victims of the shootings.  He agreed.

Walking into the movie theater tonight was surreal.  Crowds of people lazily walked out after seeing Dark Knight Rises, as we walked in for the late show of Spider-Man.  Although it was just another Sunday night at the movies, it felt different.  As we ordered popcorn and soft drinks I noticed the prices of the concessions and how they had increased so much since the summers when I was in high school and went to the movies with my friends.  I missed those days of mindlessly walking into a movie, hoping to see other friends or a possible crush.

After sitting down in our seats, we both checked in on Facebook and I even wrote on our raannt Facebook fan page that we would be writing a review of the movie.  There will be no review.  Don’t get me wrong, the movie was fantastic; even better than I had imagined.  The absolute perfect summer movie.  During one of the greatest scenes in the movie, a Coldplay song, Til Kingdom Come, echoes in the background.  I tagged the song on Shazam and bought it on iTunes as soon as we left the theater.

Driving home, Alex pointed to a flag at half mast in honor of victims of the shootings in Aurora, Colorado.  “Did you know he was a Ph.D. student who had dropped out of school and was on unemployment?” I asked.

He was a terrorist.” Alex said bluntly.  “If he were from any other country, he would be labeled a terrorist.  He brought fear and terror into the hearts of people so to me, he will always be a terrorist.”

I nodded in agreement.

As we drove in silence, the Coldplay song strummed through the open windows while I remembered summers of my youth when blockbuster movies, stolen kisses and late night country drives singing our favorite songs seemed to keep us stuck in time.  The truth is,  I’ve never really internally grown up and those are still some of my favorite things today.

Late Thursday night, Alex’s brother, who just graduated from high school and is headed to college in the fall, began Tweeting about being at the midnight premiere of Dark Knight Rises.  “Regal is paaaaacked” he Tweeted, followed by “Who’s going to the midnight premier of The Dark Knight Rises?” and Tweets between he and a friend who were in the same theater.

When news of the shootings began to hit I was still up, reading on our front porch.  My initial thought was about the safety of Alex’s brother and his friends.  Although I knew they were in Indiana while the shootings occurred in Colorado, I was still worried this might be some mass terrorist attack.  I wondered what it might be like for all of the families of the people who were at the theater?  I couldn’t imagine.  I’m not sure any of us really could unless it happened to us.

I sat outside, listening to the crickets already playing their late summer tune.  I watched as a few people walked their dogs, completely oblivious to the terror on the other side of our country.  I wanted to call and make sure Alex’s brother was safe.  I wanted to tell the dog walkers what I had seen on the news.  I wanted to wake Alex from a deep sleep and tell him what had happened.  But what could we do about it?

The next day, news on the radio and television aired news of the story with reports from witnesses and family of the victims. The suspect, James Holmes’ was identified.  Even his parents issued a statement of regret for the victims, also stating that the police had the right person.  Having recently watched We Need to Talk About Kevin, I couldn’t imagine the devastation this would have on Holmes’ family as well.  Again, I wanted to stop people at the gas station and ask them what they thought.  I wanted to talk about it with my friends.  But what could we do about it?

Nothing.  And that is the sad end to this story.

We live in a world today of reaction and response.  An event occurs and we react.  We gather our notes, say the appropriate words and we respond.  And then the world slowly changes.  We’ve learned a lot since those Columbine and September 11th days.  We’ve learned how to appropriately respond to national terrorist attacks. But have we forgotten the price?

The price of popcorn and Junior Mints continue to rise and now we’re even afraid to go to the movie theater.  Our kids who are on dates or getting ready to leave their homes for college can’t even enjoy the innocent gifts of summer.  Maybe in a few years we won’t be allowed admission to the movies without walking through a metal detector and displaying identification.  Maybe in a few years we won’t even have movie theaters anymore.  Life constantly changes and we continue to react and respond.  Forgetting events, victims and the threat of terrorism again is part of our response.  It’s the American way.  “Oh, has it really been five years since the Aurora, Colorado shootings?”

But what can we do about it?  The world is a scary place today.  Maybe the best we can do is live our lives like innocent children swinging on the playground, higher and higher, enjoying every moment until it is our time to jump.

Having our flags at half mast is the least we can do.  We can start by remembering.

Just for today, let’s smile, remember all of the good times and honor those who’ve come before us…because, as my mother always said, we’re on borrowed time as it is.

Project Runway:Project Obnoxious…Season 10 Premiere!

This might just be the greatest season of Project Runway ever! And not because of the designs, but because of the cast! The season premiere, which started so haphazardly we kept asking ourselves if we missed the first episode or the first hour of the first episode, completely captured us with the two main stars Gunner and Christopher.  We’re sure we won’t be the first to ask, but…Team Gunner or Team Christopher? We’re definitely Team Christopher.  He’s so sweet and cute and honest…and damn can he sew an amazing gown.  (We do agree with Michael Kors that his styling looked like a bad bridal party).  Gunner, on the other hand, is soooo threatened by Christopher that he continued to make snappy comments throughout the show.  “There’s only room for one star in this galaxy and it ain’t you!” and “I just don’t like his arrogance”, both times referring to Christopher, who complemented him by comparing his opening design to Miu Miu…Uhhh…more like Converse for Target.

Some of our other favorites this season are Buffi, Melissa and Kooan.  Pull it together Kooan! You’re way too amazing to walk the plank so early in the season.  Actually, we weren’t overly impressed with any of the designers in this first episode and found ourselves comparing these new designers to our past favorites.  None of the designs were so incredible that we were stopped in our tracks.  And Heidi Klum….hmmmm.  A friend of ours recently commented to us that Europeans think she’s a joke and don’t take her seriously.  We can only imagine it has something to do with her “style aesthetic” since her dress looked like she grabbed it off the rack at Chico’s.  We’ve had the honor of interviewing Nina Garcia…check it out here…and we still can’t get over how absolutely incredible she looks all of the time.  She needs to take $5000 of that Marie Claire money and spruce up Ms. Klum!

Needless to say, we were super excited that Christopher won the first challenge.  We were absolutely unclear why Beatrice was kicked off and they kept Lantie.  Although she’s sexy as hell and looks like an older mix of Lana Del Rey and Kathleen Turner we just don’t think she has it.  We were excited to see what Beatrice was going to bring to the runway this season.  Oh well…we’ll have to turn our attention to lesbian designs instead…whatever that means!

Who Will Win Big Brother Season 14???

We don’t even know where to start.  Season 14 of Big Brother might just be the best, most gut wrenching season we’ve ever seen of the show and we’ve seen every season! We are absolutely obsessed with Big Brother and don’t miss one second including Big Brother After Dark on Showtime.  Our reviews will not be spoilers or updates because there are tons of website out there, like our favorites Buddy TV and Morty’s TV(which shows minute by minute updates).  Instead, we will give our thoughts and opinions on this season of Big Brother.  Peter will be updating his opinions via YouTube videos so check out his videos and follow him throughout the season of this show! The following are just a few of our thoughts so far…

1. How could we go from being the world’s biggest Janelle fans to absolutely being sick by her behavior…all in one week??? We are so confused by her flip-flop behavior that we’re starting to think she really might just be a dumb blonde.  We’re hoping that her alliance with Boogie is just an act and she’ll redeem herself soon!

2. Is Willie gay?  We’re not just saying this because of his comment to Wil.  There’s lots of gay men that are ultra-masculine and don’t like effeminate men.  We’re just askin…is he?

3. As much as we love Britney, we can’t help wondering if she’s sitting there all wrapped up in her sweater thinking, “why the hell didn’t I stay home and spend the summer by the pool?”

4. Who’s Jodi?

5. Britney’s not as stupid as people think she is…after all, she’s the only one who noticed the key holes next to the coach’s pictures.

6. Poor Kara…

7. He eats Fruit Loops, shaves his legs, smokes like Bette Davis and looks like a bear…just sayin.

8. Ian’s the missing link to Soul Train.

9. Uh…who’s Jodi?

10. Shea body butter is fucking lotion….Period!
