The Marvellous Month of May!
And what a marvellous month it was!
Things began with thing called ‘My 31st Birthday‘.
I mean. 31. Thirty One. Thirty Fucking One.

I could have had one of those OH WOE IS ME I’M OLD BOOHOOOO moments but bitch please… I’m one year older to peeing myself and not having to give a shit about it. I’m glad I’m not in that perky, annoying 18 – 25 or 25 – 30 tick box any more where they’re all BUZZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! about shit.
You’re not buzzing. You’re a twat. Behave.
I may have a few grey hairs in my beard, an ever increasing unempathetic disposition and an intolerance for pretty much anythning that doesn’t interest me, but I have a career, a house, and a wonderful Coven of Cunts that I call friends who keep me entertained with wine and shenanigans.

I’m 31 years old and I’m fucking fabulous.
‘Oh he thinks he’s fabulous does he?’
Yes. I do. Eat it.

May. Marvellous May. What made May so marvellous?
Well, for purposes of alliteration, Marvellous works with May.
I haven’t blogged in a while because I’ve been far too busy with my work and my travels and my projects and… wait for it… SOCIALISING! ME! Socialising! With ACTUAL people! This old age is doing weird things to me.
Here’s a wee run down of what made May so marvellous for me!



After 13 weeks of shade and shit, Bianca Del Rio was crowned the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race 2014! I was on #TeamBianca from the very start of Season 6. Hurricane Biance obliterated the competition this season with her acerbic tongue and style, winning three challenges along the way and never having to lip sync for her life.

“Bianca is my kind of entertainer.
She is totally fearless, bust-a-gut hilarious, and yet she’s still managed to touch the hearts of Drag Race fans around the world.”
– RuPaul

Bianca was crowned by last year’s winner, Jinkx Monsoon who passed on some advice to the newly crowned Queen B…

“Revel in every single second of it… mind your Ps and Qs, and, when the bitches come for you, let that bullshit be water off a motherfuckin’ duck’s back!”

If you’re a fan of RuPaul and Michelle Visage then the What’s The Tee podcast series from them is absolutely worth a listen! It is hilare! With episodes such as ‘Disco Jesus, Facelifts and Juicing’ and ‘Beyonce, Monogamy and Let The Music Play’ there’s something for everyone! If that’s your thang that is! 🙂


Lady Munter. Glasgow’s First Lady of Drag.
She knows how to throw a party!

We met Michelle Visage at Menergy’s Fierce ruling Divas Ball.

We also attended Radio One’s Big Weekend in Glasgow which featured an amazing line up of artists, bands and performers!
The Friday night event at George Square saw Danny Howard, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Pete Tong, Martin Garrix and Tiesto entertain a 15,000 strong crowd in rave of epic proportion!

R1 Rave

The music was as expected from the DJ’s playing, the light show against City Halls was spectacular and the bagpipe rendition of Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’ was quite the treat. BUT! The true highlight of the evening was that I was in the company of the one and only Beth Ditto herself. God bless you, random lady!

Two more additions to my ever expanding collection of Chad Sell artworks!
They’re pretty fierce!

The month of May was indeed marvellous.
Over the next wee while I’ll be posting about some new music things I’ve been working on which I’m really impressed with so far if I don’t say so myself, artworks and commissions that I’ve been working on, gigs we are heading to, gigs I’m doing, some TV and film stuff and a few interviews that I have lined up!

Until next time…
