Look, people, when we said we were going to talk about whatever we want on the podcast from here on out, we meant what the fuck we said. So this episode, along with the usual discussion about art, old music, and video games, we also swap stories about our past and present butt problems. If you can make it through that, though, we go on to discuss the growing trend of famous sexual predators being aired out, the Halloween-friendly films of Nicolas Cage, and…oh, shit, we also go into way too much detail about that old urban legend with Rod Stewart sucking off a bunch of sailors. Look, this is obviously a ploy for attention, so just give us what we want and listen, okay?

It was basically a year ago when my girlfriend and I visited Reykjavík, Iceland, but when have I ever let a little untimeliness get in the way of my #content? Here, at last, is my video about Lucky Records, which I can without exaggeration describe as one of my favorite record stores in the world. Check out the video to watch me and guest Kia Matthews discuss records by Bobby Brown, Klymaxx, Stevie Wonder, Queen, DeBarge, Grandmaster Melle Mel and the Furious Five, and Loudness. Camera by myself and Kia; music by Loudness and Bobby B.

The Dystopian Dance Party podcast is back, and we’re out for blood. This episode, we catch up on what’s been going on during our two-month hiatus and talk about Gene Simmons (naturally), the 20th anniversary of Final Fantasy VII, and the 70th anniversary of Marc Bolan. Please look out for more in the next couple of months–we have a lot of exciting stuff planned for the future!

A Few Words on the Future of Dystopian Dance Party

Hey everybody! As you can probably tell, things have been a little less active than usual around here. Callie has been busy with her (phenomenal) artwork, and I’ve been concentrating on job hunting, writing that actually pays, and my much more popular “side blog,” dance / music / sex / romance. Basically, it’s become clear that Dystopian Dance Party is not sustainable in its current form. But we are nothing if not devoted to our unprofitable side hustles, so we’re not calling it quits. What we are doing is doubling down on our mission as a vanity project with complete disregard for its audience: doing away with any semblance of a monthly schedule, and doing shit that we want, when we want it. At some point, we might bring back monthly podcasts…or we might not. The only way to find out is to subscribe and see what comes up. In the meantime, you know where to find us.

Jheri Curl June: El DeBarge’s “Real Love”

Jheri Curl June: El DeBarge’s “Real Love”

The last week of Jheri Curl June is always a story of decline, and this year’s is no exception: like yesterday’s song by After 7, today’s closing track is more New Jack Swing with a residual curl than it is JCM proper. Hell, El DeBarge even appeared on the cover of its parent album, Gemini, with a hairstyle more appropriate for the dawn of the 1990s–and when El DeBarge loses his jheri curl, you know it’s the end of an era.
