  1. Stick a fork in the Scissor Sisters - they are officially done. Cutesy tactics like this have already made them the inside joke for 2007.

  2. Awesome pics--I'm so excited for their new album to come out.

  3. They're "done," Justin? Sheesh, they've only done one album, give them a chance to build and grow. You sound like one of those manic channel-hopping attention-deficit disorder types. Just imagine if we wrote off all bands after only one album!!

  5. I saw them at a concert two weeks ago and they were AMAZING. They are anything BUT done, as a matter of fact, they're just getting started. I think I know who the inside joke for 2007 will be Justin but it won't be the scissor sisters ;)

  6. Speaking of queer musicians, does everyone know Antony & the Johnsons are performing in Brooklyn July 26th, as a benefit for the Ali Forney Center (shelter program for LGBT youth)? Should be a great concert, with Matmos and CocoRosie there as well.

  7. they'll avoid the looming shark-jump if they can distance themselves from disney's elton.

  8. Allow me to speculate... Justin is one of those impudent twentyish pixies whose impression of an iconoclast is derision based on popularity rather than merit. This is of course just a self-conscious inversion of the follower mentality posing as independent thinking. You think you're being impressive, Justin, but you'll really just remain kind of sad until your brain and your mouth get to know each other.

  9. I'll gladly refer back to this post, in say a year from now... maybe they can match the same 100,000 albums they sold here in United States with this new piece of shit they are selling to all the fantastically closed minded gay lemmings that will buy anything with the word GAY stamped on it...

    Wait, I'm asking THIS readership..LOL

  10. SOMEONE has been sitting in the corner playing "Jesus Take the Wheel" on his 'bitar' for too long.

  11. Ugh! Somebody please tell that Jake boy to keep his clothes on. His yen for a 'Twink' hierarchy [if being a twink really is something anyone would aspire to...] is ludicrous only because he's more akin to a moldy 'twink'ie...crusty cake and stale cream filling.
    Aren't the Scissor Sisters ready to slip back into obscurity?
