With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“So Come On Baby Won’t You Show Some Class” May 13, 2011


Have you seen the new Cadbury Dairy Milk advert? the one with the dancing clothes? I think it’s amazing! It’s soundtracked by an unusually good 80s song; “We Don’t Have To take Our Clothes Off” by Jermaine Stewart. Cadbury have quite a good record with adverts. there was the eyebrow thing and also the drumming Gorilla which used Phil Collins classic (lete me tell you that you don’t hear me say that very often) “In The Air Tonight

Jermaine Stewart sadly wasn’t around long enough to have many hits. He died of AIDS related complications in 1987 aged just 39. “We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off” was his biggest hit and reached number 5 in the US and just failed to make the number one slot in the UK in 1986. Enjoy Jermaine’s video followed by the Cadbury use of it in the dancing clothes advert. Then a special bonus of the drumming gorilla.

 

“And she know why she came here, and she know where her clothes suppose to be” November 29, 2010


For a few months my blog has been getting thousands of hits from people searching for Lady Gaga, but seeing as how very media savvy she is I understood that. But over the last two days I have also had hundreds of hits from people searching for Colonel Gaddafi‘s nurse. I mean I have posted about Gaddafi’s all female security guards before and nurse has come up a few times, most recently in the Gregory Isaacs obituary when I gave you “Night Nurse” So that one stumped me for a while, well until I read the Guardian’s report on the latest Wikileaks exposure. Apparently Gaddafi’s personal staff includes a 38 year old Ukrainian nurse, one of a team of four, who ‘know his routine’ This is all according to the US mission in Tripoli, who also described the 38 year old nurse, Galyna Kolotnytska, as a voluptuous blonde. The obvious allegations appear to centre around a more than medical liaison. So does that mean that Gaddafi is in fact the Arab world‘s Berlusconi? Who know? Who cares?

Read some of the Guardian’s coverage here.

"You want my nurse you kiss me first little man!"

But I must say all the Wikileaks stuff does make rather interesting reading and apart from hits to my blog there is also a genuine link to Lady Gaga as well. The alleged source of these and other leaks is Bradley Manning a US soldier who was working as an intelligence analyst. He has been in solitary confinement for 7 months and his trial is expected to start soon. He allegedly downloaded all the material while stationed on an US Army base just outside Baghdad. He claimed it was ‘childishly easy’. Apparently he took a CD-RW labelled Lady Gaga into work and then pretended to listen to Miss Germanotta on headphones, apparently even going as far as lip-syncing her songs. But what he was really doing was wiping the disk and uploading thousands of diplomatic files.

I wonder what Gaga herself thinks about it all. We probably won’t find out for a while as she has retired from social networking to support Alicia Key’s initiative to raise money to combat AIDS in Africa. Many celebrities have signed off of Twitter and Facebook and the like until a certain amount has been raised for African AIDS charities. You can support the charity, which is called Keep A Child Alive, by clicking here. Donate people, you know it makes sense!

I thought I’d finish with a moderately appropriate song, ladies and gentlemen I give you “Freek-A-Leek” from Petey Pablo. Geddit?

 

“We’re not sorry if we tricked you” October 17, 2010


 

Insane Clown Posse post their appreciation of Batman! Bang! Pow! Boom!

 

So after 21 years of violent lyrics and posturing it turns out that Insane Clown Posse have been evangelical christians all along. Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope have revealed their religious views in a new song “Thy Unveiling” Apparently they have just been pretending to be violent, evil and wicked while all the while they were really just naughty choir boys! Some of the lyrics in the new song appear to be unequivocal evidence that they have come out of their christian closet. “Fuck it, we got to tell. All secrets will now be told. No more hidden messages …Truth is we follow GOD!!! We’ve always been behind him. The carnival is GOD. And may all juggalos find him. We’re not sorry if we tricked you.” But it would appear that many of their fans (aka juggalos) are feeling betrayed. Violent J is quoted as saying “You have to speak their language. You have to interest them, gain their trust, talk to them and show you’re one of them. You’re a person from the street and you speak of your experiences. Then at the end you can tell them: God has helped me.”

Personally I find it quite amusing and there must also be a whiff of hype about it all. Clearly this is the type of act who probably don’t have a great christian following, indeed they may have many anti-christian followers. So in a sense it was like Donna Summer‘s announcement a few years ago that AIDS was a plague sent by god to destroy homosexuals. A pretty stupid statement really. Firstly because it is totally wrong and secondly because much of her audience were gay men. So there must be a lesson for Joseph Bruce and Joseph Utsler (aka Insane Clown Posse) in how to alienate a large chunk of your audience. It’ll be interesting to see where their career goes from here.

Newly converted fans rush to worship their new holy heroes!

 

BuzzFeed has a great list entitled ‘The 12 Most Ridiculous Insane Clown Posse Lyrics” Click here to check it out. My particular favourite is “Your son’s on crack and your daughter’s got nut stains on her back and they both fuckin’ smell like shit” which is taken from their song “Halls Of Illusion“. I bet these guys still secretly put ‘Kick Me’ labels on each others backs.
