Cutting Edge

Ex-Village People singer faces jail sentence - In this blog's never ending quest to bring you all the most up-to-date music industry info, I stumbled across this sad bit of news.

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The singer who dressed as a policeman in the
flamboyant late 1970s disco band "Village People" has been arrested after
disappearing while drug and gun charges against him were pending, officials said
on Monday.



On behalf of Twisted Sense of Funny, allow me to be the first to display my absolute shock at this news. This will be one of those moments we all look back on and remember where we were when the news was broken to us that the policeman from the Village People was.... a criminal.

Easily remembered for their outlandish costumes including a construction worker,
a policeman, a cowboy and a leather-clad biker, the Village People were one of
the best known bands of the disco era. Their song "YMCA" is also a favourite gay
anthem.



Whoa whoa whoa, hold the flippin' phone... What kind of racist crap is Reuters trying to pull here?!?! Kind of funny that the one guy they forget to mention was THE INDIAN! Not like you can't remember him! For cryin' out loud here, he was the best one!!!

I'm sorry, it's just that this story has me a little emotional, that's all. Talk amongst yourselves. I'll be jamming out to "YMCA" for the remainder of the evening, remembering when things seemed so simple...

wait... YMCA is a gay anthem?? since when???? wait...wait... then why is played at each and every sporting event? Like at a hockey game?

Mr. Twisted said...

I don't know what kind of fruity-ass hockey games you're going to, but they don't play that song at Avs games, I tell you.

Kell said...

Bet they do. Nanner-nanner.

Mr. Twisted said...

When el Jeffe shows up, he'll set the record straight about what does and does not get played at Avs games. Then you will owe me BIG.

Alessandra - I understand how let down you must feel as well. I'm considering starting a support group for those affected by this suprising turn of events.

So, yeah..um, I'm pretty sure I spotted Alex Tanguay rocking out to what could have been "YMCA" at Polyester's (a fabulous nightclub downtown Denver) last weekend. Yep. Pretty sure it was him. It was cute.

Mr. Twisted said...

Could be true, but notice how he is currently injured and out of the lineup. Coincidence? Maybe not...

Mr. Twisted a dit…

ALRIGHT! Whoever virused my computer to keep me from finding out about this is in big trouble.

Kell- nanner nanner is a low point for you. This is not the witty repartee I've come to expect. And hockey bashing!?!?!?! You are skating on thin ice, young lady.

For the record, the Offical NHL Anthem is "Monster Boobies", by a band called "We Kicked The Village People's @$$es The Other Night". Twisted and I happen to play in said band, truth be told.

Kell said...

El Jeffe.... First- sorry to hear about your recent infection... some penicillin should clear that RIGHT UP. Second... nanner-nanner was used solely because I knew you weren't available to help Greg out with a come back. You know how ugly it gets when he has to think too hard.. or at all... Third- I wasn't hockey bashing... my sister would have killed me if I was. I was sports song bashing. BIG difference. Can you tell??

El Jeffe said...

Oh, I can tell alright. I just hope you aren't looking for wiggle room, just because of my bringing the ruckus. Hey, a pleasant side effect of my faulty short term memory is that I've already forgotten what we were spatting about. Cookies and ice cream for everyone!
