INTERVIEW: Drag Terrorist CHRISTEENE Plays with Accidental Bear & There’s a lot of Stank Mentioned

by Accidental Bear

I just wrestled a wild, mysterious, gorgeous and stinky wild animal for you named CHRISTEENE, who has been handed the title ‘Drag Terrorist” on a silver platter. Tranquilizers did not work so I had to strategically reel CHRISTEENE in with food scraps and then I pounced hard, swinging with questions. In 2009 singer CHRISTEENE mysteriously appeared in the conservative state of Texas and was mostly spotted  within its capital city, Austin. Reporters and private investigators have not been able to get the bottom  of his/her age, origin, race, religion and even gender leaving the public to rely primarily on an impressive and highly stylized collection of music videos. My  first CHRISTEENE sighting was when it’s video for the song “Fix My Dik” landed in my  email inbox and boy did it stink (in a good way). For hours I danced to its track and then masturbated to CHRISTEENE’s dirty & sleazy back up boy’s T-Gravel and C-Baby. From that day forth CHRISTEENE has been a dirty stain in my mind and I wanted more.

Reports from live shows describe scenes involving butt plugs tied to bouquets of balloons being released into the air from CHRISTEENE’s arse, intimate and bizarre confessionals over tea, backup boys urinating on canvas bags containing the singer, and a wardrobe styled from the scraps of society…classifiable as ‘Dumpster Couture’. The singer’s impressive sound arsenal includes a wide range of musical appreciation and mastery ranging from Electro to R&B, Hip Hop to Dub Step, with titles including ‘Fix My Dick’ ‘Tears From My Pussy’ and ‘African Mayonnaise’.  All songs are written by CHRISTEENE and present an intimate and fascinating glimpse into the personal experiences of this talented nightmare.” christeene.org 

 I peeled back all the warning labels screaming WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT at  me and tried to get to the bottom of this deep, dark hole that we have all learned to love, CHRISTEENE.

Interview:

Accidental Bear: I just read on your website that you appeared in Austin sometime in 2009. Would that be dropped from an alien ship or you dug your way out from the earth? Either way you are dirty rotten hot.

CHRISTEENE: Diz sheeeet is STANK HAWT an I doo like too push it out ferr da boyz an baybeeez out derr in da wurld ya’lllz. Austin been my nay nay place fer a while now. Iz hawt as SHIT here an i wish all u people can cum an play up in diz nugget when u can wit me haaaay. 

A B: As a small child did you dream of being on stage?

CHRISTEENE: whut ?

A B: If you were locked in a 12×12 room with 10 sweaty, bearded, construction workers, a pepperoni pizza, chop sticks a lube for 24hr (not toilet) what might happen in that room?

CHRISTEENE: I would take da chop stix an pic da lock den I would go down da street to dat place wherr u doo da laundry an watch da clothes spin in da hot box machine. 

A B: What kind of emotions stir inside of you if I say stinky pinky?

ALBUM PREMIERE: CSS’ ‘La Liberacion’

by Accidental Bear

“We just wanted to be over the top,” singer Lovefoxxx tells SPIN. “We would be very exuberant [in the studio] and not think of how to do it live. This was the only rule that we had.” With that said they may skate a fine line of trying to hard. Being unaware of your ‘over the topness’ is key to be successful at it.  When there are ‘board meetings’ involved in image consulting, there is a need for being cautious of authenticity. CSS has the beats that allow us to breathe easy with power dance songs. You could care less if they are naked because CSS’s music is rock solid.  Mike Enders

Nepal’s Version of a Gay Rights Rally

NEPAL GAY PRIDE DANCE X560 (GETTY) | ADVOCATE.COMGay rights proponents gathered in Nepal this weekend to call for their inclusion in a new constitution being drafted for the country, the Associated Press reports.  The constitution could include equal rights for sexual minorities. And supporters used the occasion of the traditional festival of Gaijatra, which honors the dead, to bring their campaign to Narayanghat. The rally couldn’t be missed in the rural town, with the march reportedly led by two decorated elephants. And bands played music to help draw people into the streets.  The Associated Press reports that LGBT people have felt more comfortable being open about their sexuality in the cities than in rural areas like Narayanghat, so the event marked a milestone in acceptance.

Why Bachmann Won’t Be Able To Reinstate Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Turns out that it wouldn’t be hard to do, legal experts say. That’s because the law repealing the ban that President Obama signed last December did not expressly order the Pentagon to allow openly gay or lesbian troops in the armed forces. Congress merely laid out a process under which the ban could be lifted. Under that process, the president, secretary of defense and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had to certify that repeal would not undermine recruiting, retention, morale and other indicators of what is commonly called military readiness.

Woodridge man allegedly kills dad with weed trimmer

Story ImageA Woodridge man accused of beating his father to death with a weed trimmer will undergo a psychological evaluation after he blurted out bizarre, nonsensical answers Monday during his first court hearing. “When did you last work?” DuPage County Judge John Demling asked 21-year-old Yashesh Desai at one point during his bond hearing. “The beginning of time, maybe,” answered Desai, who appeared via a video link from the DuPage County Jail.

 

Why Cleaned Wastewater Stays Dirty In Our Minds

A boom sweeps around a tank at a sewage treatment plant in Coos Bay, Ore. Even though sewage water can be treated and cleaned, psychologists say getting the "cognitive sewage" out of the water is much more difficult.

 Brent Haddad studies water in a place where water is often in short supply: California. Haddad is a professor of environmental studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz. About 14 years ago, he became very interested in the issue of water reuse. At the time, a number of California’s local water agencies were proposing a different approach to the state’s perennial water problems. They wanted to build plants that would clean local wastewater — aka sewage water — and after that cleaning, make it available as drinking water. But, says Haddad, these proposals were consistently shot down by an unwilling public.
 
Every hour of TV watching shortens life by 22 minutesAnyone who spends six hours a day in front of the box is at risk of dying five years sooner than those who enjoy more active pastimes, it is claimed. Researchers say that watching too much TV is as dangerous as smoking or being overweight, and that the “ubiquitous sedentary behaviour” should be seen as a “public health problem”. Experts from the University of Queensland, Australia, write: “TV viewing time may have adverse health consequences that rival those of lack of physical activity, obesity and smoking; every single hour of TV viewed may shorten life by as much as 22 minutes.”

Leaf Carving Artists In China Branching Out Into Pop Culture (VIDEO)

by Accidental Bear

Talk about having a steady hand and a load of patience. Most folks have trouble making a scrap book full of pressed leaves without the pressure of hand crafting a masterpiece. I am going to steal of phrase from ‘the kids’ these days , Amazeballs!  Mike Enders

(Huffington Post)

A new art form emerging out of China. Creating these leaf carvings is no easy process, taking the delicate precision from a skilled artisan. With a knife, the leaf is slowly scraped of its outer layers, eventually revealing a near transparent surface. Special care is given to keep the veins intact to preserve the stability of the leaf.

Artists prefer using the leaves of the Chinar tree, native to India, Pakistan, and China. Resembling maple leaves, the distribution of veins in the Chinar leaves are the best suited for sculpting–and they are considered ‘lucky’ in Chinese tradition.

The process of producing a single leaf carving is said to take months of careful work. When the artwork is finished, the leaves are then preserved and framed–ensuring that they will last for decades. The music is Osmosis by Liquid Tension Experiment.
