AGH! So this week is probably one of the most stressful week of the remaining year!!??! ITS FINALS WEEK well mostly the end of the quarter. The weekend was amazing. It was spent going to a parting gifts show that was truly dance-a-riffic!
Tonite i danced my ass off rehearsing for my BURLESQUE show this saturday! I'm doing a special bubblegum burlesque show in honor of my love of this very special genre.
Bubblegum music was seen as an extremely commercial genre back in the day and the two men who were considered the pioneers of such genre was: KASENETZ AND KATZ. The term "bubblegum" came around when the record exects were actually chewing bubblegum while the bands would record because it seemed to go along with the ooey gooey sticky sweetness of the songs being recorded!A lot of the bands that recorded were mostly singing about sleazy love affairs and what today would be considered creepy and perverted but man oh man did they make sound super catchy and amazing! Whats funny is that a lot of the songs were written by a super talented teenage female prodigy! Who'duh thunkit! I love this genre so much and have been collecting records since I was 16 years old (started with punk,thrash, oi! and rock n roll). I'm really happy to have a growing collection.
I'd really like to start a Cartoon Rock n Roll DJ nite!! that would be soo much fun!!!
With my new band the Bam Bams I am trying to do just that. Break the rules and make it super catchy and FUN!!!! OOO. What if I made the Bam Bams cartoon characters.. Im totally gonna do that for sure!!! woohooo! It sounds totally lame and stupid but MY DREAM is to put out a record. To play on a record would be so awesome. I want to work hard at everything I do. MUSIC IS MY LIFE. I hope to continue to work on my solo stuff and put out a couple records and tapes soon. Im never going to give up playing music. I want so much to make an impact in this fuckin world! haha. I want people to hold hands eat candy and dance their asses off!
So I'm also looking forward to having my break from school because then I can officially work super hard on all the illustrations I want and all the projects that need their loose ends tied!
I'm sad to say I'm super lovesick and I'm starting to believe its totally my fault. Argh. I wanna fall madly in LOVE and hope that I will allow myself to once again. I've just been screwed over by so many sleazebags I NEVER EVER trust men and think they are all gonna screw me over but what can ya do?
