XANADUUM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:06pm zivilars:

Xanadu archive already online!
Avatar 4:06pm solo mon:

It’s pronounced mix like a dj mix. Non gender honorific. It’s great!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

all the weird covers were played in the middle, when i was passed out
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm zivilars:

downloading the whole file as 128kbps from the server is 1.38GB of pure madness
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:08pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

zivilars: it's been nice knowing you
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm zivilars:

@Mx. Granny: :)))
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm zivilars:

@Mx. Granny: btw, your birthday already starts in less than two hours here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

zivilars: so i can really kick into high gear then!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

i think this is the first day i HAVEN'T had a song from Xanadu stuck in my head
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Rich in Washington:

Oh wow, Granny! You share a birthday with my mom and also my dear friend Ninah.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Rich in Washington: i feel so honored!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Rich in Washington:

I'm still having recurring Xana-earworms.
Avatar 4:14pm solo mon:

More people should have named their kids Xanadu
  4:14pm Martinibomb:

@Gran Chloe posted some of your bday karaoke - did you get her to do Magic or did she pick that randomly?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Rich in Washington:

I think there's gonna be a latenight TV commercial about a class action lawsuit about it soon. "Did you listen to the 24 hour Xanadu marathon on Sheena's Jungle Room...?"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Rich in Washington:

There's gonna be a Xanadu related baby boom.
Avatar 4:15pm solo mon:

What if your name was Xana, where would you go, what would you DU?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Martinibomb: i had requested folx to sing songs from Xanadu, so i think that was it! Everyone sang in a big wild heap and it was CRAZY!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:16pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Rich in Washington: ha ha HA HA HAAAAAA!
Avatar 4:16pm solo mon:

Granny greg and I did a shock treatment rock block
  4:17pm Martinibomb:

^Hahah Awesome!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

I sang "Lullabye" from ST as the closing number
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Otis Fodder:

Xana Dü - songs from Xanadu covered in the style of Hüsker Dü
Avatar 4:17pm solo mon:

Otis YEP ;-)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

And i did "Little Black Dress"
Avatar 4:18pm Linda Lee:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm zivilars:

@Rich in Washington: LOL!
Avatar 4:18pm solo mon:

2Rich - "This aint no maagic... this aint no maaaaagic"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Otis Fodder:

Shock Treatment, like Xanadu - Love the soundtracks more than the films. Opposite with the Apple, movie first, soundtrack in the dustbin.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

LL: Dana hosts an online karaoke party every Monday night
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

ok, i just lost track of how many slices of toast and jam i just ate
Avatar 4:19pm solo mon:

LOve ing monster rally
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm Rich in Washington:

I was just thinking about Shock Treatment. I have a promo single from the film but honestly have never seen the actual soundtrack.
Avatar 4:19pm Linda Lee:

oh yes! tell me about access again?
Avatar 4:20pm Linda Lee:

*and* if one can't lose track of one's toast for one's birthday, when can we do so?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Otis Fodder:

Rich - Soundtrack is so catchy... poppy!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

LL: There's a public group on FB: Karaoke With Dana. She posts the links there. It's on Zoom (and Twitch)
Avatar 4:20pm Linda Lee:

we hear you some, MB!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Rich in Washington:

I want the soundtrack to Reggie Daalder's Population: 1.
Avatar 4:20pm solo mon:

Im playing a song from the Shock Treat soundtrack tomorrow!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Otis Fodder:

Ya sound great, coming through loud n clear.
Avatar 4:21pm Linda Lee:

oh dear! zoom and twitch!!! i used to do some of that..
Avatar 4:21pm Linda Lee:

let's see..
Avatar 4:21pm solo mon:

Karaoke w dana is really fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:21pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Shock Treatment is a Brad and Janet story set in Denton USA, but that's where the similarity to Rocky Horror ends.
Avatar 4:21pm Linda Lee:

i'd love to peek in!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

LL: it would be so fun if you showed up. It begins at 10pm your time, i hope that's not too late
Avatar 4:22pm solo mon:

I really like the movie, but i may be the only one. Theres a good back story to why it is what it is. and isnt like rocky horror...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Rich in Washington:

I remember seeing it in the early 80s but honestly don't remember a bit of it. Time+substance abuse+rigors of life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

LL: i really want you and Dana to "meet"
Avatar 4:22pm Linda Lee:

i've yet to experience Zoom at all ~ but this sure is inviting!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

LL: no one is required to sing or turn on their camera
Avatar 4:23pm Linda Lee:

oh, but i'll have to show up to meet Dana!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

solo mon: A reviewer once wrote that one of the Enrique productions we did was "More like Shock Treatment than Rocky Horror" and we were all like YEAHHHH!!!!!!
Avatar 4:24pm Linda Lee:

this ReWorks track is really lovely.
Avatar 4:24pm solo mon:

I just wish richard o brien made more stuff. he was an interesting artist.
Avatar 4:25pm solo mon:

GRAN ! LOL (and true)
Avatar 4:25pm Linda Lee:

though instructions to dances lose me totally.
Avatar 4:26pm solo mon:

darcys early musicals feel very shock treatment as well.
Avatar 4:26pm Linda Lee:

i'd imagine Mr O Brien would like to just rest on his big queer laurels by now.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

solo mon: Richard O'Brien is a fascinating artist, for sure. I was so excited when he came out as non-binary and then immediately crushed when in the next quote he said something very TERFish
Avatar 4:27pm Linda Lee:

shit. did he really?
Avatar 4:27pm solo mon:

I mean his literal did one play (iconic) two movies (one iconic/ one ?) and then nuthing
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

solo mon: i can't remember which show it was
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Richard O'Brien's bit in the SPice World movie was one of the best moments ever. And yes, he says trans women are men.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

which is such a weird thing for a nonbinary person to say, but there ya go!
Avatar 4:29pm solo mon:

I can see them doing that. ugh, greg and i were just talking about the man song from shock t and sweet transvestite song, wondering how one interprets that nowadays?
Avatar 4:29pm Linda Lee:

there's an amazing tendency in many old school queers to go TERF. a longtime queer activist i know completely misunderstands the nonbinary paradigm. it's weird.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:29pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

i'm going to sing "Thank God I'm A Man" at karaoke next week!
Avatar 4:30pm Linda Lee:

then again, he expressed to me in the 80s that bisexuals don't exist..
Avatar 4:31pm Linda Lee:

that was the term of choice then, for nonbinary.
Avatar 4:31pm solo mon:

yeah I had to have a very intense conversation with a relative who i consider extremely progressive about this, i think I got through, but geez it is baked in to a number of people of a certain age!
Avatar 4:32pm Linda Lee:

i think i get it.. gender is only performative, but not .. necessarily .. reflective of one's person? or something
Avatar 4:32pm solo mon:

PLEASE DO gran Im gonna sing carte blanche
Avatar 4:34pm solo mon:

its a shock treatment "country block"
Avatar 4:35pm Linda Lee:

wonder what would happen if we simply loved one another more.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:36pm Otis Fodder:

Have a nice night everyone, off to pick up a weekly veggie basket, make some food, do some laundry and binge on some stories. Solo'n'Gran, see you tomorrow for the B-Day-Fest!

Aloha MB!

Yes and massive love'n'hugs. Take it from me, big blue head. xo
Avatar 4:36pm Linda Lee:

what if we kept it that simple?
Avatar 4:37pm solo mon:

XOTISXOTIS have a good one bb
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Otis Fodder:

Simple like my profile personal statement: Personal statement:

Bagels, Books, Cats, Cheese, Coffee, Donuts, Family, Friends, Fruit, Kindness, Love, Pillows, Smiles, Tacos, Records, and You!

xo
Avatar 4:38pm Linda Lee:

there you go, Otis!
someday i'll ask you which stories..
Avatar 4:38pm solo mon:

I like the idea but I have a hard time loving people that clearly want me dead. Love would be so much easier for everyone in a world sans corporatism and evagelicalism.
  4:38pm Martinibomb:

Have a gooooooood evening Mr. Otis! <3
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:38pm Otis Fodder:

Going to watch The Sopranos again tonight. Just finished Silicone Valley. Bye all!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:39pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:40pm zivilars:

Avatar 4:42pm solo mon:

Lol I consider myself a people person but im not really bi
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:43pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

Avatar 4:43pm solo mon:

Im trying to get the cats to harmonize on carte "meoooow meoooow"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Mx. Granny (e/em):

i sat in a circle with a bunch of teens sharing names, pronouns, and then this astonishingly prolific set of identities including sexuality, gender and romantic proclivities. <3 <3 <3
Avatar 4:44pm solo mon:

I cant wait 4 u to do the man song :(0

Avatar 4:54pm solo mon:

I will go with you. I get lost in the album covers of dr buzzards savannah band and off the coast of me.
Avatar 4:55pm solo mon:

They created a cool, specific world in sandy linzer/ august darnell land. the 40s/ 70s thing was totally their concept that the world ran with.
Avatar 4:56pm solo mon:

Its just the chorus and instro, maybe it's a dub?

  5:01pm Martinibomb:

This is good driving music! Drive safe, stay germ free and never run out of bubble gum.
Avatar 5:01pm solo mon:
