Holiday Cheers & Jeers: Cyndi Lauper & Friends Support The Reason For The Season Comments (0)

Last night was the fourth annual Cyndi Lauper & Friends Home for the Holidays concert to benefit her True Colors Fund. The lineup was so eclectic as to almost be off-putting; we're so used to compartmentalized music it seemed jarring to consider hearing Cyndi, Metric, Sufjan Stevens, 50 Cent, Nataline Maines and Salt-N-Pepa all on one bill.

But the diversity of artists led to a long, fun, interesting show, one spiked with equal parts good cheer and defiance.

Cyndi-Lauper

Emcees Rosie O'Donnell and Laverne Cox were a curious yin and yang, with O'Donnell condemning Woody Allen and Bill Cosby while Cox preferred “happy thoughts” and red-carpet posing.

RosieOf her fellow comic, O'Donnell said:

“Twenty-three women in their seventies just woke up and thought, 'What should I do today? Go to Target, or fuck up Bill Cosby's life?' I say he's guilty, and it's sad because it's like a death: We lost Joan, we lost Robin, and we lost Bill Cosby. That's what it feels like to me.”

The crowd approved. But there was a mixed response when she invoked the Hands Up, Don't Shoot! and I Can't Breathe populist outrage that protesters not far away were expressing—some boos, some oohs, some cheers. O'Donnell was perplexed.

#dead: Songs To Play At My Funeral Comments (0)

Gay-funeral-1Come and get it come and get it come and get it...actual journal pages of mind from my teen years.

When you're as obsessive a journal-writer as I was—I wrote in one every day for probably 12 or more years—you eventually hit the need for filler. On one particularly morbid day in the life of a morbidly obese teenager, I decided to write down all the songs I wanted played at my funeral.

I'm not sure what gloomy thoughts I was having to make me feel so ready to...go into the light...but the songs are pretty hysterical. Was it my intention to force “Need a Man Blues” on my grieving extended family as a way of rubbing their noses in who the real Matthew was? (Horny, vindictive.)

And just imagine the people glancing at their watches during “Paninaro”.

Gay-funeral-2I'm sure that Goonies soundtrack song would've provided great solace.

Not to mention the sheer timing of it all...there are about 80 songs (and many, many more), so that would have mourners seated for well over two hours, just listening to, you know, Grace Jones, Gene Loves Jezebel and the more traditional Madonna-and-Cyndi-Lauper combo.
