WACK MIX TAPES


What do all these songs possibly have in common?

They all use a vocoder or a talkbox, AND I heard em all today while wiggling at a cafe on Gƶtgaten. Well, technically 'O Superman' was playing from an iphone - experimental performance artist and musical pioneer Laurie Anderson's mustached face is splattered all over the city. She's comin' here next month and up till now I've been thinking she was a dude!!! The tune reminds me a little of "I, I, I, I, I, I WANT U, U, U..."

Miz Fuze remembers when she used to make WACK mix tapes. WACK meaning a little off-beat. Like Sir Mix-A-Lot after Miles Davis! ;-P

EMEK


I am feelin' Erykah's NU album ART for RETURN OF THE ANKH by Israeli-American-Portland-based EMEK, The Thinking Man's Poster Artist!

An ethereal coral garden underwater, 3 moons, 3 children, metal armor = protection, keepin' the junk out, escape from the mind, tree of knowledge, fertile and free!!!

Emek's been toted as the man who revived the POSTER ART SCENE. The genius of visual content to go along with the muze!!! Remember all em psychedelic posters Bill Graham had done for the Fillmore circa 1960's in Frisco. Oh those Jimi Hendrix ones were KILLA! Check it!

I have ALWAYS felt so strongly about an artist's visuals being just as strong if not stronger than the muze. Our eyes are far more developed than our ears yeh?

Miz Fuze needs to find a craZy illustrator!!!

INSPIRATION: The Platform


Can ya believe that Courtesans skipped around in these sculptures back in 15th Century Venice? Some women tottered along on 22 inch CHOPINES until a maximum height of 11 inches was mandated by law. In a time when streets frequently doubled as sewers, platform shoes made imminent sense from keeping the CRAP away, but low and behold some of these stilts look a little like long turds!!! haha

Miz Fuze now realizes her platforms are NOT high enuf!

embrace the girl in YOU!


When Jackie appeared on American Bandstand, he was dressed as a woman, and Dick Clark never even knew! Today, he wouldn't have raised an eyebrow, but in 1963, an effeminate black man in spangles, makeup and eye shadow was quite the freak show in the eyes of the mainstream public.

A Tribute to My Ladies and Gents on this 99th International Women's Day, I Got Mine: The Story of Jackie Shane.

Miz Fuze loOoves watching behind the scenes footage of albums being made, altho ya wouldn't want to see hers, it would just be a whole load of EMOTIONAL FITS, "OH SHITZ", hair not being combed for dayz, stinky armpitz, recording in platform shoez in order to feel the FUNK, and um wine, AND weird chocolate! Flavor of the week - dark chocolate with cherry tomato and salt. haha ;-P
