Oh, Gaga.

I’m undecided on whether Lady G is an irritatingly contrived poser, or mad cap- haute couture genius. Whilst I try to figure it out (gotta admit to having watched the Telephone video three times now, great stuff) I can only be bemused by this months Q Magazine cover, in which there seems to be a very telling bulge in Miss G’s leather trousers.

Is that a banana in your pocket, Gaga, or are you just pleased to see us?

Upon actually reading the interview, I found that of course, said bulge was attributed to a blue dildo stuffed down said leather trousers. But, the funniest part is, that Lady Gaga is insistent through the interview process that she wants to appear on the cover of the magazine nude, with the dildo strapped on to her knickers. A direct quote reads ‘We all know one of the biggest talking points of the year was that I have a dick, so why not give them what they want? I want to comment on that in a beautiful artistic way.. and I wanna call this piece Lady Gaga dies hard’.

(Un?) Fortunately, no such pictures are featured in the magazine, though there is a page spread dedicated to some of Lady Gaga’s more artistic ensembles, gotta love that flame-shooting corset.

So, the album artwork for the new Christina Aguilera cd has been released, and whilst I’m not a huge fan of Xtina, reports of collaborations with Le Tigre, Goldfrapp and Ladytron on the new record have got me very excited indeed. I remain however, undecided on the album art work.

.. I get it- Bionic, that’s been interpreted quite literally, okay. But wouldn’t it be so much cooler with some Tron style neon graphics?

Personally, I think so. The one thing I’m not gonna argue with tho is that Miss Aguilera keeps her red-lippie on, even when exposed as half fem-bot. Now that’s dedication to glamour!

The album is set for worldwide release on June 8th, 2010.

Goodfellas- good ladies?

The night before last I found myself home from the pub and flicking through the channels absent mindedly before I eventually passed out around midnight, ¬†on the sofa in my skinnies (did I just admit to that?). Anyway, for a few hours I was totally captivated by an old favourite flick of mine on ITV4- Martin Scorseses’ Goodfellas. Now, I know we’ve all seen that film poster and perhaps some of my fellow girly girls might find some of the shoot out scenes a little gratuitous, but what got me (and thrilled me to my feminist core) this time around was the many all-woman delights on the soundtrack. The Shangri- Las! The Crystals! The Chantels!

I love a good 60’s girl group. And a few bad ones, too..

You can buy the cd off Amazon here. 49p for heartbreakingly melodic songs about love (and just a hint of teenage melodrama) seems pretty bargainous to me..

A New Leaf..

Hello all,

I have decided that rather than update my much loved (but much neglected) Domiknittrix blog, I would start an all new and improved version! I’m hoping to be branching out a little with this online venture, so as well as covering my usual fodder, female angsty issues (Don’t get me started on that Mooncup advert!) I’m going to try and get a bit of mainstream culture in the mix, be it what I think of the latest scenester album, or my reviews of only the finest fine art (Who wants to go to the Whitechapel?) . I’m hoping as well to get a few culinary trials up on here about as well, having been inspired by the Julie Powell’s delightful Julie and Julia book, where the author attempts to cook every one of the 524 recipes from Julie Child’s seminal Art of French Cooking, and blog about the results. I was thinking this curvy brunette could probably take on Nigella Lawson with some success, although I daresay she’s a lot more verbose than I am, and probably better at wielding a spatula in a seductive manner.

Somehow I don’t manage to look like this when tucking into several plates full of cake. But anyway, I can touch type, and that’s all that matters here.
