song of the day: kissing the wind nia peeples (1991). i decided i'd add this new feature to my blog. today's song is by singer & actress nia peeples (of fame fame). not her biggest hit, but it's my fave of her's and i've had this song stuck in my head for weeks! "sometimes i feel it's a natural thing, sometimes i feel it's a mystical thing, sometimes i feel like...kissing the wind...".

first in typical joe fashion, we kidnapped her and made her wear this hideous dress! the theme of the night was her quinceañera (she never had one, plus she's expecting...hence the immaculate conception). so here she is being escorted by her court :)
praying to la virgen de nacaragua (claudia is from nicaragua and sometimes we call her naca when drunk...lol). check out how hard she's praying!
there was a "baile del CONDON" set to chayanne's tiempo de vals. we did our best to make sure it was a taqui-taqui naco quinceañera.
there were musical numbers. here is the first one, by yours truly. as many of you know, whenever you attend a quinceañera u always get entertained w/ tacky choreographed routines. so we decided to do our own take. an impromtu drag show! here i am entertaining the crowd to quiero ser santa by alaska y dinarama. had to stick w/ the religious theme.
i don't think you've been to a tacky quinceañera that didn't play timbiriche's hit song. here gigi (aka freestlye sister), juanjoderlola and i do our take on quinceañera
not to be outdone, and in honor of his bday just days before, ryan busted out the skates and did his award winning routine to olivia newton-john's disco hit xanadu inspired by the movie of the same name. so again it was a drunken filled evening, w/ lots of dancing, drinking, and what not. enjoy everyone!
the last time i saw madonna live i was 10 years old and it was for the Who's That Girl tour. once upon a time i used to be a mega madonna fan. so last wed., july 14 we got to see madame m herself @ the united center. she sold out 4 nights, fyi. anyhoo let me just say it was a great show, we had good seats (thank u ebay). there were some lowpoints though, mainly her caberet take on deeper and deeper (i couldn't help but think, geez, didn't kylie do this back in '98 on her intimate and live tour?), the snoozy material that required her to sit down and play the guitar and the corny cover of Imagine. otherwise it was retro madonna all night long! express yourself, vogue, hanky panky, burning up, like a prayer, holiday, crazy for you and my fave of the night, papa don't preach!!! btw i did not take the pic above (i stole it from a madonna site...sorry!).
