Because It's Sunday. . .

. . .You get the Scissor Sisters. Why not, eh?

I don't know why I like this song so much, but I do. It puts me in a good mood, and that's always fun. And, just to be honest, I don't actually feel like dancing, even if I had nothin' better to do.

The Scissor Sisters is? are? a guilty pleasure for me, and for most guys, I guess, so it doesn't make it that bad.

Funny story: I bought their second record while shopping for Christmas presents, so I could keep up the illusion that it was a gift for someone else.

But a friend of mine said he had to buy it on iTunes to avoid getting it in public.

Now, don't mistake me; I'm not homophobic or anything. Some of the band members in Scissor Sisters are gay, and some of them are straight. That's not my concern. It's just way too...something. I don't know.

At first, I thought it would be the equivalent of bringing home a neo-disco record - which is what I thought it was - but I was pleasantly surprised. Some of the songs have a lot of depth and musicality to them. The lyrics are also great.

So now I feel embarrassed that I was ever embarrassed to get it. The Scissor Sisters is not just a party band. Egg on my head.


  1. Gosh, that's mighty infectious...

  2. Yeah, I'm just glad they didn't put some sort of subliminal message in there, like, "Wear leather pants" or "Eat a whole can of potted meat by itself." Otherwise, well, I guess I wouldn't know the difference. I'd just be in really bad taste.
