Song of the Day: 'Identity' by X-Ray Spex

Despite my fandom, I still haven't gotten around to seeing the documentary "Poly Styrene: I Am a Cliche," daughter Celeste Bell's look at her late mother, whose voice always reminded me of Anglo-Somali-punk Bernadette Peters. (Styrene died of cancer in 2011 at just 53.)
Celeste became the unwitting guardian of her mother’s legacy and her mother’s demons. Misogyny, racism, and mental illness plagued Poly’s life, while their lasting trauma scarred Celeste’s childhood and the pair’s relationship. Featuring unseen archive material and rare diary entries narrated by Oscar-nominee Ruth Negga, this documentary follows Celeste as she examines her mother's unopened artistic archive and traverses three continents to better understand Poly the icon and Poly the mother.
But until then, let's enjoy X-Ray Spex's third single, "Identity," which hit No. 24 on the U.K. chart in 1978. 

P.S. Die-hard fans take note: Poly Styrene Throbbleheads are available for pre-order

Limited to 500 numbered units, Poly stands at 7 inches tall, and is made of solid polyresin. Sculpted in one of her classic original outfits, braces, and army helmet, Poly comes in a full color collector's box. Check out the full promo video HERE.

Damian and I have been running around quoting Lulu since the Roe decision leaked -- so kudos to whoever came up with this!

Song of the Day: 'Bouncing Off Clouds' by Tori Amos


Went to see Tori Amos last night at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. Tori is Damian's Debbie Harry, so while I'm not overly familiar with her work I love watching him watch her, knowing that every note, every movement, every aside means so much to him. (The super-gay crowd made for excellent people-watching, too!) The show was very moving, but perhaps my favorite moment was this one captured by a fan on a U.K. stop, where Tori performs "Bouncing Off Clouds" with a "Reindeer King" interlude. She's back in Brooklyn tonight if you wanna try to catch her -- I know Damian will be there!

Wrestle Wednesday

I'm not really into role play. But for those who are, Takedown Sportswear seems to have everything you need to play "angry wrestler." Couple more BELOW.

Song of the Day: 'Get Up and Go' by the Go-Go's

I have never watched "Stranger Things" -- what I lack in sci-fi interest I don't make up for in love for '80s nostalgia. But I just read a fun Q&A with the Go-Go's in which I learned the band appears on the series alongside Soft Cell and Corey Hart performing at Doritos Music Fest '86 "in an alternate dimension called the Upside Down." Although most of the gals weren't speaking to one another much less playing together in 1986 -- talk about science fiction! -- I may need to tune in. 

I haven't found a clip yet but the photos show they captured their early '80s look(s) perfectly. In the meantime, I also learned that "Get Up and Go" -- which was the poor man's "We Got the Beat" -- appeared on an early season, so here is your proxy song of the day until I can find a replacement!

Operator: 911, what's your emergency?
Me: I'd like to report an anachronism. 

 Watch an "ad" for Doritos Music Fest '86 below:

P.S. Soft Cell also had broken up by the time 1986 rolled around.

'Firebird' Coming Home

Peeter Rebane's "Firebird" -- which looks like "Brokeback Mountain" meets Don't Ask, Don't Tell in the occupied Baltic states -- will be available digitally on June 3 ... and you can color me curious.
Based on true events during the Cold War at the height of 1970s Communist rule, "Firebird" follows a handsome, soulful young soldier who embarks on a clandestine love affair with a charismatic fighter pilot newly stationed at his Air Force Base. Set in a time when men in uniform caught having a sexual affair were dealt a severe punishment, this is a story of two men who risked their freedom -- and their lives -- as their loyalties were torn between love and service to their country.

Kudos on the casting of Tom Prior and Oleg Zagorodnii, both of whom are stunners.

My blog has never had a lot of commenters. (I do appreciate the regulars, however!) But I will admit I was impressed that no one bothered to even respond to THIS, either because they agree we're doomed or don't even see the point of thinking about things too much. New life goal: Save enough money to become a full-time cat lady.
