So… It’s only 5 months til Chr***mas…

Alaska Face

People have tried to have conversations about Chr***mas with me.
People have been buying Chr***mas presents.
People need to stop with this  Chr***mas madness.

Bianca Get The Fuck Out

Please. Don’t talk about Chr***mas. It’s still the fucking summer.

Hand of No

So while these pesky little elves are preparing for the annual shit storm of fun and snow and turkey oh my…

Bianca mmhmmm

…some of us have been guddling away, doing things and stuff, enjoying the summer months and ignoring the fact that winter is coming. And that is where this narcissistic little blog comes into play. Following on from the first Rewind blog I wrote back in April where I collated my blogs and things and stuff, I thought I’d do a May – July collation of my blogs and things and stuff.
It’s my blog and I’ll blog if I want to!


April was quiet on the old blog.
I had a few Sugar-y things to take care of and LORD it was fun!
Moving on. 🙂

As mentioned, I wrote a Rewind blog covering January to April and if you click on the image below you can have a read!

RuPaul’s Drag race had a WEDDING EXTRAVAGANZA and RuPaul went to see Hedwig on Broadway!

Talking of weddings, the amazing Drag Queens of London had a sort of wedding…

And YES Vanity Von Glow, you looked thin GURL!


Well… May began with my birthday!
Happy Birthday ME

And I wrote my 31st birthday inspired blog…

Did I win Eurovision?!

Nope! Conchita did!

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 came to an end…

And it was marvellous!

In fact… the entire month of May was Marvellous!

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 anything 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.

We Are The Weirdos Mister

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 Bianca 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!”

Bianca & Jinkx





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.

Menergy is hosted by the ever amazing Lady Munter at AXM in Glasgow!
Check the website for upcoming events and tickets!


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!

Well. I didn’t really. But bravo to beards and Conchita Wurst!

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!


June. The month The Hayfever hit. NOT A GOOD LOOK.

I learned that Paddington Bear is a bit of a creep.
Click the photo! Have a read! I’m tellin’ ya! He’s a creep!

I also had an Oreo induced meltdown when I discovered that Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Oreos were an actual real life thing…

Me! Beard of The Day! Thanks Happy Bear Co! 🙂

I got my paint on in a blog called…

I kinda like the finished work even if I do say so myself!

Bianca Del Rio came to Menergy Glasgow and she was one pussy mouthed muthafucka!

It was a good night!

I developed beard envy…

I also made  a donation to Hurricane Bianca because I NEED THIS MOVIE TO BE MADE!

And July ended with my Scissor Sisters blog making another comeback thanks to a wee segment on STV Glasgow about the Barrowlands venue in Glasgow! Yeah, that’s me in the middle without a beard, my friend John on the left and the one and only Jake Shears on the right! We broke the STV Glasgow TV thing. Sorry! (Not Sorry!)

And that was The Rewind from April to July 2014!
Until next time!
