I went with a bunch of gay skinheads once to a Dropkick Murphys on St. Mark's Place in Manhattan.
I dove right into the moshpit and came out bloody but happy. (most were bloodier) The gay skinheads (museum lighting designers and such by day) were so horrified by my anti-social behaviour that I was never asked back again. (Actually that was fine.) Personally, I hadn't had so much fun since the Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, and the Butthole Surfers back at Club Foot in Austin in 1982 (before Austin was transformed into whatever it is now).
Anyway, I'll admit I don't know who this Kylie Minogue is, but I am a bit confused as to your general bewilderment on Cher, Madonna, et. al.
Is your attraction to DKM a way to prove manliness while Cher is out of that scheme?
Don't you listen to Patsy Cline, Loretta, Dolly (or do you just steal crap?)
You have Irish folk music on your iPod but no Madonna?
WTF, I'll bet you do wear a green hat on your riding lawnmower.
Buckwheet saidWhat I don't understand is the attraction to female singers by gay men.
I've heard some Cher, some of them were ok I guess. Madonna, Kylie, Celine... what's the big deal?
I don't and wouldn't have of them in my iPod. Mostly pilfered country songs, a few Dropkik Murphey albums, some Rolling Stones and Irish folk music; them Irish know how to make some snappy songs! I'm 1/4 Irish, so I can wear my green hat all I want.
The whole female singer attraction is just beyond me. Someone enlighten me!
