Glad Tidings

Glad tidings on Christmas. Merry Christmas everyone. A very Merry Christmas to you all and may I say, once again, glad tidings loyal readers.

That’s old news. I threw that tree in the garbage a few years ago. So what? I can do what I want.

Remember this? I don’t.

Hey, seriously though…Jesus is really mad at you. He’s kind of embarrassed to mention it though…

But he’s really really mad at you man. uh huh. You know why too. Dude, he was so mad at you, he couldn’t even concentrate and just kept looking down at you like really pathetically.

Im serious man. You better shoot him a text or something because he’s about to give up on you… for real.

Why don’t you get him a little birthday present or something? Some incense or like a nice gold chain or something…

Maybe The Michelan Man In Manhattan?

Last year I had a great coat at a bargain price. This year I have a freshly washed coat with one arm and a poly fluff issue with my lint filter. After several hours of scrolling and clicking and pop-up windows and pop-under windows I just can’t decide. I’m wondering about the unbranded full length hologram puffer as opposed to the “radical in Manhattan” Michelin Man look from somewhere in China?

I can’t decide. I might just sew the arm back on, re-stuff a baffle and add a new fake fur trim to the collar.

This is about as deep as my thoughts go tonight…which is strange because normally don’t really get personal on my blog…hmm.

Well, the truth is…the only coat I really want is one of these…

Sleaze Volume One by DJ Luke Howard

The good news about Luke Howard’s, “Sleaze” disco mixes? – There are fifteen volumes in this expertly curated disco reference tool. How wonderful to have an encyclopedic knowledge! Personally I am downloading all of them twice and having one set etched onto titanium plates as binary code then stored very deep underground at a classified location. The other set I’ll be mounting in the meditation room of my sacred disco temple where I frequently commune with and keep up with the dearly departed dancers from The Saint. Oh yes, they are still dancing and yes, Gay, there is flag dancing in heaven….it’s not easy because a lot of these guys have those big wings…sort of like the circuit queens’ costumes but…well they’re not actually costume wings…anyway…wings can make a lot of the old flagging moves difficult due to tangling, lost feathers, even broken wings from what I heard during last week’s session. oh yes girl, it’s heaven in heaven but shit still happens…from what I hear…and girl, did you hear who nearly fell through her cloud at last week’s High Tea?…I mean, how high does she need to be? This is heaven…top floor sweetie…GET OFF THE ELEVATOR! Bitch is dead and gone and still nearly killing herself on the dancefloor….she IS sweet though.

HERE IS YOUR SLEAZE DISCO ENCYCLOPEDIA by LUKE HOWARD

I hope I don’t die before I listen to all of them because they only have harps in heaven and I love a harp but I mean…all the time?…forever? No. I need my disco down here on earth.

This One’s For Me

What’s going on?

Billy Beyond… and we are blogging.

(Introduction)

Ladies and their friends, it is with a great amount of hair product, a heavy handed application of eyeshadows and a lot of love for my girls ( Jeanette Jurado, Ann Curless, and Gioia Bruno ) that we (re) present to you now, from that legendary year for Freestyle -1987, “Let Me Be The One” by Exposé

Who did the make up for this video? Hello? Does anybody out there know who the make up artist was on this important pop video document?

Anybody?

No?

you see, that is exactly the kind of thing that is going to keep me up at night…I have two guesses. Paul Gobel or Kevyn Aucoin…..COULDA BEEN.

The B-52’s Meet The Archies

In the grand tradition of cult classic crossovers such as ARCHIE MEETS KISS and ARCHIE MEETS RAMONES, the next surefire comic book crossover hit arrives in February 2020 with ARCHIE MEETS THE B-52s!

From the fan-favorite Archie Comics creative team of co-writers Alex Segura and Matt Rosenberg (ARCHIE MEETS RAMONES, THE ARCHIES) and artist Dan Parent (ARCHIE MEETS KISS), the ARCHIE MEETS THE B-52s one-shot comic book will rock you with a new wave of fun, excitement, and humor like only Archie Comics and The B-52s can provide.

“I’m so excited to not only revisit Archie’s legendary run of off-the-wall, awesome music crossovers, but to do it with my original partner in crime, Archie legend, Dan Parent,” said co-writer and Archie Comics Co-President Alex Segura.

“The B-52s are a seminal, quirky, and groundbreaking group, and I feel so lucky to have the chance to make a little rock and roll history with them and Riverdale’s own, The Archies. Expect a lot of bonkers fun, eye-popping art, and a lot of new wave-y adventure.”

“The B-52s are not only a legendary rock group, but are an important part of my life,” added artist Dan Parent.

“They are a band who meant a lot to the kids who felt like they were out of the norm, and they made it cool to embrace your inner weirdo. So, to be able to bring that brand of musical quirkiness to Riverdale is a dream come true. The B-52s in Riverdale makes sense, and I’m not even sure why! All I know is fun will be had!”

The unlikely yet seemingly meant-to-be crossover of The Archies and The B-52s was something co-writer Matt Rosenberg also loved, adding, “If there is a better pairing then the cartoonish psychedelia of the B-52s and the literal cartoons of the Archies I don’t know what it is. And getting to watch Dan Parent draw them together is an opportunity I obviously couldn’t pass up. I’m so excited for this book it’s crazy to me that it’s a real thing, it feels like I’m living in my own private Riverdale.”

To find out more information about ARCHIE MEETS THE B-52s, stay tuned for news coming out of the ARCHIE COMICS FOREVER: CELEBRATING 80 YEARS panel this Friday, October 4 at New York Comic Con.
