And let me set the record straight right now. I have been accused of hating the anti vaxxers, and saying pretty terrible things of those who get real ill and hospitalized because of them not getting the vaccine, I don't hate those people. But if they were on life support, Id would probably unplug it , to charge my cell phone.

Happy Friday bitches!

FOR THE RECORD

I have always loved Adele, from the minute she came on the scene years ago. It's been a complex few years for Adele, as the singer has gone through a painful divorce, battled anxiety, and adjusted to life as a single parent to her eight year old son Angelo. Now though, the singer and her recent stunning Vogue cover, the star is ready to chart a whole new course with the release of her first single in six years from her album 30, which recently is hitting. Of course mouths will flap, and tongues will wag over Adele's new look, while others criticized the focus on her physical appearance. I swear, the poor girl can't win. First she was looked down upon because of her plucky appearance, and now it's like she can't win because she is too thin?!? Her trainer has even come out, speaking up for her telling the press it was never about getting skinny, it was about getting healthy. Her trainer added that he worked with her post pregnancy and surgery...and with better exercise and  much better food choices is what took the weight off. But I for one,  am so tired of everyone and their mother saying how stunning and gorgeous she is now. I actually preferred the more plucky Adele myself, I have always thought she was a very stunning woman...and she is still stunning. I think as long as she is happy, that's all that matters. But I think we have to remind ourselves as a society your weight doesn't determine your beauty. Your appearance doesn't determine your beauty, and the number on the scale doesn't make you worthy or unworthy. Either way, to me,  Adele is and always has been a stunningly beautiful human who whether heavier or thinner is just as equally gorgeous. And she still has a set of pipes. It's just nice to hear that voice again.


You go girl and be happy.

THE VILLBERGS


Most of the drag world is compromised mostly of  solo queens doing their schtick, followed by whole drag house. But when it comes to drag duo's there aren't as many. I have featured the fun and lively Coyle twins, Sugar and Spice here, who are shaking up the drag scene, and they aren't even of age yet. Then there was the South American boyfriend duo The Deendjeers, and of course the most fabulous of spooks, The Boulet Brothers. But probably the most unusual, glamorous and avant garde would have to  the Villbergs. It's almost like the edginess of Jodie Harsh, the glam of Amanda Lepore and club kid Leigh Bowery all came together to result in the Villbergs.  The Swedish internationally recognized power drag couple, consist of a talkative glittery goblin, and a dead pan beautiful self centered man lady...and they welcome all to see the world through their eyes. The Villbergs are considered top tier drag artist to revival even the likes of Sasha Velour, designers, muses, and globetrotters. These couture creatures  of the alternative world exist in the midland between the fashion industry and the artsy culture scene and the club world of Europe. With backgrounds between them in architecture, graphics design, fashion design, pattern making, styling and make up, they can create some of the most creative and jaw dropping ensembles I have seen in all the years I have been doing drag and after. Their matching ensembles are just mind blowing. From the wigs to the clothing, they have designed and created everything of their own design, and the duo's visual concept has evolved into a one of a kind vision of couture and art joined. Some of their unique sense of style has resulted in collaborations with some of the worlds leading photographers, as part of their platform is a jaw dropping candy shop on Instagram, where there creations can often be seen with world famous landmarks in the background. There show's in Sweden are as legendary as them. How many queen's put on a show in an ice palace??? If I was still doing drag on a regular basis, these two would be some of my newest role models, though it might break the bank. And trust...if I get to Sweden one day you damn well know I will have to go to one of their shows. I can also get behind them unnerving the masc crowd with their pronouns and Mr Villberg calling his partner the Mrs.!!!!!! WERK IT BITCHES!
A Q and A with the boys. The Mrs cracks me up.

MEANWHILE IN SPORTS

 When I got word the local high school's cheerleaders all had fallen ill for the Friday night game, always filled with community spirit, the Mistress volunteered up her houseboys.


They seemed to be a hit.

MOOD BOARD

 

What is it about pumpkins? I always have loved pumpkins and without them it wouldn't make the autumn complete. They and the foliage add so much. And the smells of such spices as all spice, clove, star anise, nutmeg and cinnamon sticks, along with a nice dose of bourbon, when I make my mulled cider. I love nothing more than at a farmers market seeing the tons of pumpkin variety all stacked in bins.  Pumpkin spice lattes may have dominated autumnal seasons every year for over a decade or more now, but actual pumpkins have been on the earth for a whopping 5,000 years, and there is so much more to the fruit then it's contribution to Starbucks. I'm not to much into pumpkin in everything...pumpkin scented paper towel's, really....but I do like a nice pumpkin spice soup I make, in addition to Butternut Squash soup, which I made this weekend for dinner with the Lumbersexual. A lady at the market makes the best,  to die for pumpkin Belgian waffles. OMG!!!!  The word pumpkin showed up for the first time in the fairy tale Cinderella. Pumpkins are grown on every continent except Antarctica. The original Jack o' lanterns were made with turnips and potatoes by the Irish. Each pumpkin has about 500 seeds. Pumpkins are technically fruits, more specifically, they are winter squash in the family which includes cucumbers and melons. Pumpkins are 90% water, which makes them a low calorie food. Now there are a few facts for you all. Is there any pumpkin foods you like to enjoy for the season?

Happy autumnal Monday all!
