I recently had the privilege of performing in the Vagina Epilogues, a show with a format similar to the Monologues that was put together to benefit our local women’s shelter. The idea of having “epilogues” is the focus on what happens after, to kind of showcase where the world is at now that Eve Ensler has made such an impact. The pieces dealt with both dark and light topics, and I was honored to perform two songs: the Mooncup commercial’s “Love Your Vagina” and the Bloodhound Gang’s “The Vagina Song” (with kinder lyrics.) It’s been a long time since I’ve had the chance to hang out with such a smart, funny, kind group of women.
Did you know my sister sings too? While I’ve often encouraged her to join me so we can jump on the Blood Relatives Make The Cutest Musical Groups bandwagon (I think there’s room on it after Oasis and Chevelle fell off) she has this thing called a Full Time Job that apparently just won’t allow it. Silly employment! Don’t people know there are better things to do than feed yourselves and pay rent? Enjoy this little ditty my father recorded while we were hanging with my cousins last week.
One of my favorite songs of late. It’s been stuck in my head for three days, so I decided to record it as exorcism.
two things! first, a criticism of the NSA and its project, Stellar Wind, which collects data on millions of Americans for totally inane reasons. not available in video form yet, it can be listened to here: https://soundcloud.com/star-dust-20/stellar-wind
secondly, a song about how sad i am to be aging, peppered with embarrassing photos from my previous days.
