!! OMG, a short intro to New Orleans bounce music !!

What is bounce music? It’s a rapid-fire style of New Orleans call-and-response club rap that has received a lot of media attention lately thanks to ‘sissy bounce’, the handful of gay and trans rappers who are among the scene’s most popular performers. Later this week we’ll post an interview with Big Freedia, the queen diva of bounce and one of the hardest working emcees in the game. Big Freedia performs six nights a week in New Orleans and regularly tours around North America. Over the next two weeks she’ll bring her raunchy rhymes and ample-bottomed back-up dancers to Brooklyn, Toronto, Montreal and New Orleans’ Gay Pride.
For more on bounce music, check out the excellent website “Where They At”, an oral history of bounce music curated by photographer Aubrey Edwards and writer Alison Fensterstock for the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans. The site features music and audio interviews with veteran bounce acts such as Mia X, Cheeky Blakk and DJ Jubilee, and sissy bounce performers Katey Red, Vockah Redu and of course, Big Freedia.
Below are two bounce mixes by DJ Rusty Lazer. Tracklisting for the “Sweetheart’s Ball Bounce Mix” after the jump.

!! OMG, How Gay: Soccer comes out of the closet! !!


Soccer Officially Announces It Is Gay
I resent The Onion’s implication that soccer is inherently gay! After watching five minutes of the world cup this weekend, I can tell you that although the guys are clearly the hottest in all of professional sports, nothing gay could ever possibly be quite this boring!
(American) Football, on the other hand– now that’s gay.

!! OMG, They’re Friends: Lance Bass and Lorenzo Martone !!

Spotted! OMG Spies tell us that former N*Syncer Lance Bass and former Marc Jacobs gay husbo Lorenzo Martone were spotted doing some poolside lounging on the roof of the Soho House in NYC on Sunday afternoon.
While it’s unclear whether the boys relaxations were of the intimate or platonic variety, Lorenzo and Lance sure were whiling away the gay hours in the summer heat. (Annabelle Bronstein, however, was nowehere in sight…)

!! OMG, It’s Only Fair: Make Homosexuals Marry !!


This delightful video starring Mike White and Justin Long gives conservatives, bigots and prudes a great reason to oppose Proposition 8! Because nothing will destroy “the gay lifestyle” faster than gay people entering into the boring old institution of marriage! And isn’t the destruction of the gay lifestyle what these assholes want? (I mean those conservatives, bigots and prudes who don’t secretly want a dick up their butt of course.)
Perfect logic, right? Make Homosexuals Marry!
Thanks to Kevin for the tip!
