"Ashes to ashes, dust to side chicks."
This is a mix inspired by Beyonce's "Lemonade" album, one of the most moving and incredible pieces of visual art I've ever seen.
The official best audio version of this mix will be played on Friday (February 24th) radio show from 7-11pm CST. Tune in via the little player to your right, here, or on Tune In apps.
Oh yeah, something else I did today was a "Get Ready With Me" video with my Sony Handycam camcorder in black and white. Today was the first day I put makeup on again after having a PAINFUL AF abscessed tooth last week. Watch it if ya wanna:

I break my silence on Toddler Tyrant, kind of. I also do some more babbling about The Cure, my VHS adventures, and my new tattoo. The album of the week is Veruca Salt's "Eight Arms to Hold You" which I just realized, as an adult, is about trying to keep a junkie alive and in a relationship with you. Creepy.
Listen to it if you want...

^^^ This is a collection of music videos done at approximately age 12 by me, my Kim, my Xine, and my Angie. We recorded these videos during a sleepover in 1994 or 1995.
^^^ This is a collection of exclusively Garbage music videos recorded with my friend Xine in 1996 or 1997. My favorite music video in the world that I have ever recorded (and I've recorded a LOT) starts at 4min in.
^^^ This is a collection of music videos recorded by Xine and me again, this time I believe we're looking at spring or summer of 1997, the last of the music videos recorded on the Tyco Videocam (that I'm allowed to release, anyway. I have a few done by my Kim and me, but she won't let me upload them online. Prude! *winky face*).
I'm really proud of the innovation and creativity we used in making these videos at such a young age. We learned essential video-recording techniques such as using the monitor to frame shots instead of the viewfinder and using bright lights behind the camera for cool over-exposed lighting effects. When I was about this age I wanted to be a music video director when I grew up.
I'm thinking of buying that crappy Tyco Videocam again from ebay. It sells for less than $20 NIB. Even though the quality is real bad, it has Nostalgia Factor BIG TIME for me and I'd love to use it for future YouTube videos. If you'd like to contribute: paypal.me/mixtressrae
