OKDJ plays out

I would tell you to mark your calendars, but its a private gig. Finally, my toiling has recieved the recognition it so deeply deserves. Maybe it was the trainwreck heavy OKDJ vol. 2 with random tracks thrown in to lengthen the mix that sealed the deal. Maybe it is the obvious depth of my crates. Maybe its the fact that the hostess considers me her "other son."
I've spoken about the surrogates before, and now I am happy to say that Risa's mom, Lynnie, and her live-in lover, Joyce, are doing the unthinkable in this political climate and this day-and-age by celebrating their love for one another in the form of a commitment ceremony. They have generously included me in the celebration by asking me to DJ.
I can't think of a more apropos way for me to be involved. Now its time to start stacking the MP3s and gettin' all those jams ready.
It is now that I ask for your assistance, gentle reader, in that you offer your own suggestions for invigorating this sapphic affair. Age range of the betrothed is late 40's to early 50's.
Here are my (so far) essential selections:
Celebration - Kool and the Gang
Amazons - Phranc
He's the Greatest Dancer - Sister Sledge
Matchmaker - Fiddler on the Roof
You Light Up My Life - Debby Boone
I Just Fall In Love Again - Anne Muray
You Needed Me - Anne Murray
Nobody - Sylvia
So, a Jew's commiting to a Canadian--that explains the Anne Murray and Fiddler--if you have any recommendations in those specific areas, bonus points!!!
If only I can figure out a way to segue into something off of Plug Research or Get Physical or Trapez or M_nus.
The big day is Sept. 9th and should be tons o' fun. I promise that I will compile the choons I use on the day of and do a special edition of OKDJ--just for all you fans out there.
Now onto the unimportant news.
First off, HOLY SHIT!!!
Ok, Superman Returns, blah blah blah.
You know the main reason I'm going to see SR is for one Ms. Posey who, according to this here article is going to be in a film called Spring Breakdown with Amy-Freaking-Poehler and Rachel-Freaking-Dratch. I think the entire gay population just peed their pants--I know I did (again).
So, since I did some more poking around, natch, and here's what else I've found out:
Written and directed by a homo named Ryan Shiraki.
Amber Tamblyn also in the cast.
Here's what Coming Soon has to say:
The story revolves around three thirtysomething friends who break the monotony of their uninspired lives by vacationing on an island that is a popular spring break getaway for college co-eds. One of the women works for a powerful senator whose daughter is one of those co-eds, only she's as geeky as her chaperones.
Who cares what its about really--its going to pretty much rule.
Uh . . . what else . . .
Did I say that I saw X3? I did. It totally ripped from Whedon's Astonishing title by offering up a mutant cure. They kind of mashed it up with the Mutant Massacre which was ok. Can I just say that the movie looked like shit? It was too well-lit. The composition of the shots did not exist in a comic sense--which is strange since every shot is storyboarded. And also, sound design--and the title sequence. And the dialogue. Ugh. It was painful, but I still have a soft spot for those wacky mutants.
In fact, I'm really stoked for Whedon's big finale with the Astonishing X-Men--Jon Quesada says that it will "redefine or define Kitty Pryde for many fans."
And since I'm talking about the Whedonverse--Jane Espenson is writing an episode of Battlestar Galactica. That's some pretty swell news. [article]
And since we're talking about the greatest show currently on TV, producer David Eick answers some questions about Season 3. [here]
And, BSG might finally jump the shark with a spinoff show called Caprica.


Ok, guess that's it.
Hope your Monday is treating you well!!!

Oooh -- All my music options right now center on being angry, bitter, and hating your ex.

Why not use the Scissor Sisters? They are new enough to appeal to the young folk, but have an ABBA vibe that appeals to an older crew. Plus, “Take Your Mama Out” seems appropriate here.

And some Laura Nyro or Joan Armatrading might go over well.

Earl Cootie said...

...um, for the older folks, that is.

Great suggestions everyone!! Earl--thanks so much for reminding me of Joan Armatrading and Laura Nyro. Sometimes I wish I was a lesbian. I'm thinking Joan Baez, too. And I have to do Carole King. Which I think means Helen Redding will be making an appearance. Oh god, I'm gonna go out of control with this shizz.
Also recently added Barbra and The Carpenters. And NWA and Public Enemy.

X3 was a bust, mainly because Singer left to helm Supes Returns. Very annoying that move was! :(

Glad to hear that you too are a fan of BSG. Frackkin' great show! :D
