BYEBYE GOOEY ON THE INSIDE

RIP GOOEY ON THE INSIDE 2007- 2010.
Gooey On the Inside was an amazing scene, and an incredible moment in time of art and music but it is time to for us close the curtains on this.

We have both moved onto new exciting projects.
Keep in touch with us if you want.... and THANKYOU!!!!
we are keeping this blog up for historical purposes. please browse it thoroughly to find all the cool wack shit we did XXXXXXXXXXXX

Q: What is Gooey on The Inside?
A: Gooey on the Inside was an underground art, music and event organisation curated by Kati Cubby and Holly Fluxx that successfully hosted over 40 separate events (from 2007-2010).

Our events included art exhibitions, live music performances, dance parties, artist markets, workshops, skill shares, contemporary dance performances, writings, theatre performances, fundraisers, live video streams, panel discussions and fashion shows, as well as a combination of many of these simultaneously.

Highlights of Gooey On the Inside include:
- A live music and art event in Berlin, Germany (The Slumber Party)
- A live music and art event in Santiago, Chile (La Cunt Rave)
- A well received music showcase compilation cd (Hit Machine XXIVIVX), featuring Gooey on the Inside artists from Indonesia, Japan, Chile, USA, UK, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, and across Australia.
- An invitation to speak at This Is Not Art Festival 2008 on "How to start a scene from scratch"
- Producing our own specialist radio programs for 3CR and SYN fm
- Over 40 successful dynamic and diverse events spanning the course of three years
- Featured in an interview and full page spread in UK magazine "Super Super" as well as local Australian zines

Focusing on young people who identified as women, trans, queer, and people of colour, we strived to create space, agency, audience, support and a thriving, dynamic environment and build a community for our artists.

We have now moved on to other projects, but can be contacted via email:

thanks so much
love kati and holly!

to all whites.... by battle



YO WHITIES, STOP AND SHUT UP. YES I MEAN ALL OF YOU. EVEN YOU GUYS THAT THINK YOU ARE “REALLY” ONTO IT. THIS IS A RESPONSE TO THE REALLY FUCKEN SHIT RESPONSES I’VE HAD TO HEAR, PUT UP WITH, LOSE FRIENDSHIPS OVER, ETC ETC, WHEN YOU GUYS ARE ACTUALLY CHALLENGED ON YOUR RACISM.

Firstly I’m going to start by saying I am not going to use the phrase “calling people out on their shit”, please please, keep this language exclusive to sexual assault stuff. It’s really fucking important and if you don’t understand why then talk to me about it. I’m going to say when challenging people on their shit, or racist behaviour or their racism. Ok so, in the past few years whenever this has happened in Melbourne, in my group of friends, community, extended community, there has been this really big problem. Now I’m a person of colour and am already pissed off that I have to write this but it seems as though there is this really big lack of education of white people in this community surrounding race stuff. So the problem is right, well, if any of you people had actually read about this shit, which you all seem to tell me you do, is some pretty basic, well known and well written about responses when people are challenged on their racism. “The so called, what not to do’s”. This is what I’m going to talk about here. People’s fucken wack, bullshit, whatever responses. Responses that make me cringe, laugh, cry, get real angry and in the end, just want to fast pace EXIT outta this scene.

1. Firstly I’m gonna start talking about the ye olde “self defensiveness”, “denial” and the “BUT”.

So on a theory level it’s very interesting to note that denial and defensiveness is quite often connected to fear of loss. Those of you who are friends with people of colour are probably shit scared of losing those friendships in acknowledging the differences between us and or your own racism. One really great and potent form of denial and defensiveness is intellectualising. When you say all the right things and use an intellectual understanding of racism to distance yourself from how you perpetuate and benefit from racism. Please don’t insult me by telling me you are reading bell hooks, Malcolm x, audre lorde etc. Do you know that most of these black authors who you say you have read, wrote specifically for a black audience. They were not writing to educate white people. They were writing to educate and inspire and empower their own people. I’m not telling you not to read them, fuck, education is really important, but remember, these books are not yours to be inspired by, they are not yours to appropriate, to quote, to tell people of colour that you are somehow trying to be anti racist by reading this shit, seriously, it’s insulting. It also seeks to separate you from other white people. Don’t do it. You perpetrate and benefit from systematic racism, you benefit from white privilege. YOU ARE NO DIFFERENT.

Also time and time again I’ve heard some really cool stuff from white people about their racism and then, and then, comes the BUT, but you did this, but the way you challenged me was fucked, but, but, but. For fucks sake. Forget about the BUT. Just swallow your fucken pride already, in doing the “but this”, you completely devalidate what you have just said. You take away from the issue, you avoid actually taking responsibility, you become the victim, you subtract from the issue. Why bother taking responsibility only to take it away again? Just concentrate on the actual issue you are been challenged on. Don’t make it into your injustices. You do not need to highlight someone’s shit way of dealing with stuff, someone’s shit communications skills, do it another time, don’t do it at all. You are been challenged on your racism. THAT IS THE IMPORTANT ISSUE HERE. JUST DEAL WITH THAT.


2. Oh yeah and the nice and short “are you turning pc on me”, when some white person actually called my friend who is a person of colour a nigger. Actually I’m just going to talk about the nigger thing. I’m still in actual awe that this person thinks that they are so down and in touch with black people that they can get away with that shit. What the fuck. The only thing I have to say to this is if you are white and think you have a right to call a person of colour a nigger, well get over it. Sorry, but you don’t get that privilege. I don’t care how un pc you are. You are an idiot for not recognising the history and intense power black people have in reclaiming that word. That word is not yours to use. Get it?


3. You are over reacting, too angry, too upset etc.

Ok, so do you know HOW MANY people of colour are thrust into the “too angry” box. Yawn. Don’t tell me that I need to learn how to manage my anger. fuck off. If you fail to recognise why HEAPS of people of colour are real angry then you need to realise your living in Australia or some shit. Serious man, I know that most of your friends are white, but wake up. We live in a COLONISED country. We live in a country with intensely racist immigration laws. WE LIVE IN A RACIST COUNTRY. HELLO???

Now, if you tell me I’m over reacting. I’m gonna tell you, you’re living off indigenous blood, off the genocide of indigenous people. You’re living off the blood of people of colour that work there fucken arses off in this country so that they can send their fucken kids to uni, whilst, been spat at on the street by white people and told to “go home”. My “over reaction” to your racism is from a life time of been told I am less then you, I belong less then you, I deserve less then you. So once again, fuck off.

4. Also there is the one where, especially white women do this, is equate race issues to feminist issues or some people equate it to class issues. Ok, so firstly, I am a women and a women of colour, all those issues that you speak of and say, “yeah I understand”, well, I understand them too. But not only do I understand those, I have to understand how race/class/gender all shape how I am treated, my place in society and my place in history. I know that it is really hard as a woman to feel like you could be the oppressor, because you are oppressed, but man, you have to remember that women of colour are oppressed by you, that women of colour are dealt some really shit blows cos of their skin, and add class stuff to that, well it’s not good news down the bottom. The issues are very different, and you will never understand them. Please don’t attempt to create links so that you can appear like you do.

So I’m sure there are shit loads of these types of responses that people have had to face, I guess these are just the ones I have come across. I can’t actually be bothered writing more, hey I have an idea, why don’t you guys get together and write about your own shit responses. HA.

Hey I have an answer. SHUT UP AND LISTEN. DO THE WORK BUT DONT EXPECT CREDIT FOR IT. BUT LIKE ACUALLY DO THE WORK. BE A FRIEND. BE AN ANTI RACIST FRIEND. ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR RACISM.


From battle

this is my personal views and experiences on this stuff, I am by no means speaking on behalf of all people of colour, even though I am asked by a lot of you to do that (fucked up).

I also don’t need to hear about your pissed off reactions to this. I don’t care, cos you know what, I got bigger things to worry about, like been a person of colour in this fucken shit fuck racist country.

Exhibition at the powerhouse museum!

we are in a cool exhibition in brisbane!!!
lots of people came up from melbourne for it, we are having fun, and the show was tonight!!! photos to come!

the write up is here......






ISLANDS IN THE STREAM
+
EAST SIDE STORY
BY IGOR GRUBIC
-----------------------
OPENING 15th July, 7PM
EXHIBITION 16th - 31st July.
Brisbane Powerhouse, Turbine Room.


PARTICIPATING ARTISTS: Kati Cubby, Holly Fluxx, Warren Gracie, Okapi Akimbo, Jackson Monster Nighttime Power, Corey Pugh + Igor Grubic.
CURATED BY: Vivian Ziherl.

An exhibition of cultures of protest and queer radicality presented as a visual art program of Museum of Brisbane's 'Prejudice & Pride'.

Familiar to warehouses, squats and other informal spaces, ‘Islands in the Stream’ is the first institutional exhibition of work by six young radically queer and transgender artist/activists all with shared histories in Brisbane.

Featuring works such as ‘Boys are Cheats and Liars’ (video) and ‘I’m a F**n Clone (After Ryan Trecartin)’ (textile), the exhibition registers a note of the personal and the regional from within a transglobally networked, radically post-identity politics movement.

Accompanying ‘Islands in the Stream’ is a double-channel video piece by Croatian artist Igor Grubic that takes footage of violent citizen reactions to the first gay-rights marches in Belgrade (2001) and Zagreb (2002) as a choreographic text.


Exhibition suitable for audiences aged 18 and over.
This project has been supported through a Creative Sparks Grant, a joint initiative of Brisbane City Council and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.

MIA Born Free Video ....amazing hot cool important real



MIA (மாதங்கி 'மாயா' அருள்பிரகாசம்)'s new video for the BORN FREE song was taken down by youtube because of their "content policy".

Directed by Romain Gavras, it features nudity, graphic violence and a plot where ginger haired people are rounded up by pissed off soldiers into an armour-protected prison bus, driven to the desert and either shot or made to run through a minefield.............

M.I.A, Born Free from ROMAIN-GAVRAS on Vimeo.



The soldiers have American flag patches, and one ginger haired person is wearing a keffiyeh (outside of the Middle East and North Africa the keffiyeh first gained popularity among activists supporting the Palestinians in the conflict with Israel)......yet in the video plot there is no particular struggle explicitly addressed.
But by addressing no specific struggle, she addresses all struggles.

It is really common for white/western/rich/privelledged people to have ADJUSTED, NORMALISED and feel DISTANCED and UNAFFECTED by violence, genocide, torture, discrimination and war in non white/non western/non rich communities........we are living in a world where white people assume that violence and oppression inevitably happen to the "other." .. .. . . .

But by showing white red-haired people brutalized for no discernible reason other then being white with red hair, the video has induced "shock and horror".... mostly with people who identify with the white ginger physically or geographically.

SOOOOO by demonstrating white people suffering brutal violence, white viewers cannot automatically "otherize" them and are forced to consider the reality of violence and oppression.

And awareness is the very first step to action. so of course, this video was taken down from youtube. im sure there were ALOT of complaints from disturbed, pissed off white people who cant handle images of systematic oppression.

MIA is a really great artist who puts alot of time and thought into everything she makes, and i think she is really fucking successful at using her fame to affect people and make social/political commentary and change through art....which i think is actually really, really hard to do. So much art fails when it tries to do anything real or say anything beyond ego shit.
here is a quote from MIA:

"The Third World deserves freedom of speech just like everyone else. We want to fight the battle to say what we want, whether to be serious or just make fun of ourselves. That's what 'Worldtown' is about, that's what 'Paper Planes' is about. It's what people in the third world live through."

MIA released this statement when the "war on terror" was announced......
"You can't separate the world into two parts like that, good and evil. Terrorism is a method, but America has successfully tied all these pockets of independence, struggles, revolutions, and extremists into one big notion of terrorism."

MIA was born in London. Then her family moved to their native Sri Lanka when she was six months old. While her father worked as a political activist with the Tamil Tigers, she was displaced until the age of eight due to the country's civil war. She moved with her mother and siblings to India to escape the violence, and eventually she and her siblings returned to London as refugees.

As for BORN FREE VIDEO.......
im so glad this got made and i think its hilarious that it got taken down from youtube, what a fucken joke!!! Good on MIA for making it, she is a fucken mastermind goddess....


PS-it was only put on the net on the 26th april (two days ago)
and just then when i searched it, it was 61st most popular search on google in the past hour....... number one was the new season of The Hills. .....ugh

PPS- yes it samples the fuck out of suicide, but her song 'paperplanes' sampled the fuck out of The clash. who cares? the first world "samples" the fuck out of EVERYTHING from every country its exploiting....., the whole fucking system that we live in, and economy is built on theft, genocide, invasion and slavery. MIA sampling is these bands is something we should be thanking her for. its like G rated restorative justice ......we shuld be grateful

a cool blog you should check out


this picture was made by Jen Mussari
and this picture is from the http://nativeappropriations.blogspot.com/ Blog !!

im not going to personally write about appropriation. but i will bring it up, and i will offer some links and ideas.
previously we linked up to post on the axximilation blog about appropriation. (those hyperlinked words will take you to those posts).... and everyone should read that.

also these articles..
http://www.eastbayexpress.com/eastbay/burners-torched-over-native-party/Content?oid=1369150

these quotes are taken from the above article link.....
More than fifty Bay Area Native American rights activists converged on the historic East Oakland property at 9:30 p.m. to ensure the shutdown of popular Burning Man group Visionary Village's "Go Native!" party. The fired-up Hopis, Kiowas and other tribal members spent more than four hours lecturing the handful of white, college-class Burners about cultural sensitivity until some of them simply broke down crying.

this quote is also from the article, made by an un named woman
"I'm trying to articulate my feelings as best I can without completely losing it," she said. "What we do is not an artistic expression. And you don't have artistic license to take little pieces here and there and do what you want with it. That's something you people don't understand, probably never will understand."
-------------
i think this is an amazing statement that alot of people should read and think about.
---

also this article
http://bitchmagazine.org/post/to-the-hipstershippies-on-native-culture-%E2%80%93-please-stop-annoying-the-fuck-out-of-me

a quote from the article
I strongly ENCOURAGE you to do some actual research and knowledge seeking so you might get our culture right and think twice about things like permission and respect before you act on your appropriation.

--------------------
calling out people is really hard work.
everyone (including me!) needs to listen when people are doing this work.

myspace is a "wasteland"

myspace is dead. -- oi, so this is really really obvious and we ALL figured this out, like more then 1 year ago, but i just read this comment by brendan webb on FB

"logging into myspace is like walking into a scene from a post-apocalyptic movie.
the number of 'friends' you have on there means absolutely nothing and spam is rampant.....
it's a wasteland
... it's an ok way to showcase your music and ... let people know when you're doing a show but there has to be a better solution..."

hahahaha i love that its called a wasteland. its so fucking true and interesting and amazing

GUEST POST BY OUR FRIEND SPOOK, A VOICE FROM A DIFFERENT AESTHETIC: IN LOVE W/ TINTYPES

Hey!! Does everyone know about how intensely good looking modern day hobo and steampunk fashion is?? They are two really different sub cultures with really similar styles of clothing worn extensively through-out North America.

Steampunk fashion seems like a bunch of wankers trying to look old-school merged with modern day technology. I'm not really interested in this scene at all, other than the fact that their fashion looks REALLY GOOD.

Who wouldn't want to be able to dress like this every day??



The most exciting thing about the steampunk fashion is the the science fiction/fantasy element to all the clothing and gear. If Mad Max was set in the U.S. this is what all the houses would look like....


And this is what all the "boys" and "girls" would look like.....


And we'd all get to play guitars that look like this....


And shoot dickheads with guns like this!


(Not that i advocate gun usage, seeing as guns were invented by white war mongering supremacists in the first place. But... These guns look pretty amazing and i'd use one of these if i really had to.....)

Modern day Hobo's on the other hand, are good looking, AND lead interesting and adventurous lives!! They spend most of the summer hitch hiking and hopping freight trains, and the long winter months working hard, studying, or staying on the road/rail, searching for meaning and living daily missions of discovery and defiance.



When i was traveling in the U.S. i went train hopping with a bunch of hobo friends and met some incredible artists, musicians and story-tellers along the way. Not one person looked boring or bland either, can you believe it!!?!



One of the absolute babes i met was a persyn called Dinah DiNova, who is a modern day hobo, writer, photographer, artist and musician. They grew up in Hollywood and their mother was the breeder and trainer of the Beethoven dogs (from the movie!!) >> how cool is that!!?
Here is a picture she took of herself being held aloft by a group of friends....


Something so incredible and interesting is their style of photography. They use an old-school method to create tintype photo's on the spot! Tintypes are made by creating a direct positive on a sheet of iron metal that is blackened by painting, laquering or enamelling. This is so rare and beautiful! Here are some photo's they made last year with some friends........




I highly recommend checking out her Flickr page (http://www.flickr.com/photos/knitbone/) ASAP, she is a genius! Also she is HUGELY INSPIRED (as i am) by the one and only Rosin Bean James. Acknowledgment and respect to that amazing person also.....I <3 br="" of="" states="" the="" united="" whatever="" xoxoxoxoxoox="">

MORE DETAILS TO ARRIVE LATER THIS WEEK, including how to get a spot and more. RSVP to this event and we will msg you when we update the event with more info!!!

ok this next bit is my rough draft manifesta of skillshares

SKILL SHARES.
and UNDERSTANDING TRUE WEALTH AND POWER....

When we think of wealth, we too often think of money. This is a mistake. Wealth is actually a complex system of power that controls almost everything. (I am not talking about class struggle)
To understand wealth properly, and the way it oppresses it us, we must see it and define it in ways other then simply money.
I see WEALTH as not only access to currency, but as access to resources, access to skills, knowledge and education, access to safety and access to support.

When i see the world this way, i have a strong understanding of just how rich i truly am in terms of access to institutional education and support,
but i can also see the barriers in place to keep me feeling truly unpowerful and UNwealthy, in terms of access to skills/knowledge, access to safety and access to resources.

I see these barriers directly linked to the fact that I am a cisgendered womyn.
Patriarchy and those who benefit from it, OWN the skills/knowledge, access to safety, and access to resources and ARE NOT SHARING OR REDISTRIBUTING THIS WEALTH.

I can link this same concept to other systematic oppression. As a white identified person who is trying(and by no means succeeding) to take responsibility for my privileged, I have a basic (and by no means whole and sufficient) understanding of my privileged access to ALL WEALTH and how fucked it is that I can so easily and safely access so much whilst my people of colour friends and allies cannot. White power and those who benefit from it, OWN the skills/knowledge, access to safety, and access to resources and ARE NOT SHARING OR REDISTRIBUTING THIS WEALTH.

I can link this same concept to other systematic oppression. As a cisgendered womyn who identifies as a "womyn"(whatever that means) and as queer, I have a basic (and by no means whole and sufficient) understanding of my privileged access to ALL WEALTH and how fucked it is that I can so easily and safely access so much whilst my transgender, genderqueer, and genderfluid friends and allies cannot. Gender Binary, Gender-normativity, and Hetero-normativity and those who benefit from it, OWN the skills/knowledge, access to safety, and access to resources and ARE NOT SHARING OR REDISTRIBUTING THIS WEALTH.

WE MUST REDISTRIBUTE THIS WEALTH,........ this it not optional.
We are degraded, silenced, patronised, abused, assualted, murdered, ignored, invisible/voiceless, explioted, tokenised, and heaps more fucked things!!!!
we are not gonna do NOTHING about it!!!
We need skills. We need to learn all the things that we dont know, and grab hold of all that shit we dont have access to, that is keeping us so disempowered.
We need all the skills we can get.
OUR LIVES AND OUR FUTURES DEPEND ON THIS.

In light of these ideas. The primary objective of this skillshare is to enable people of colour, wimmin, trans folks and queerz to gain access to skills and knowledge which society has stereotypically been soley designated to straight white cisgendered men.
Straight, white, cisgendered men are welcome to participate, as long as they agree to the primary objective of the skillshare and actively working to not distrupt or counter attack, slow down, or hinder the primary objective.

This skillshare is in the seed stage of its existence. I want it to be a healthy tree.

I envisage this skill share to be an on going process that happens not only during designated community days but also more and more in our day-to-day lives. I dream of this happening again, and again, quite regularly. I see us self educating each other to dismantle the powers that keep us so fucked up, and redistributing what wealth we all DO have access to.
Really its now, or never.


SKILLS WE ALL NEED TO GET ACCESS TO, that are CURRENTLY HELD/CONTROLLED/MOST EASILY ACCESSED by "straight white men".
in no particular order.....

building, understanding basic engineering
fighting/defence, defence against weapons
fixing bikes
plumbing
fixing cars
understanding and using tools
gardening, including how to make functioning compost/worm farms/compost toilets
true histories and struggles of the oppressed
Live sound/how PAs and mixing desks work
speaking/understanding languages other then english
radical/liberated sexualities+sex +sex work
using computers and complicated computer programs
fixing computers
hacking
community decision making
money/budgeting
electricity+ energy
defining and creating art/music in safe environments
speaking with confidence
learning/using the body for strength based activites
reading/understanding theory and heavy intellectual text

plus about a miillion more things, this is just what i could come up with when i sat down for 3 minutes to write out a list.
if you would like to add more to this list, or think you have a skill to share, and would like to share it at the next skillshare,
please email me katicubby@gmail.com


peace

GOOEY ON THE INSIDE hit machine cd review in cyclic defrost !!!!

TAKEN FROM CYCLIC DEFROST MAGAZINE...click here to see the real version

Various Artists – Hit Machine XIVVII (Gooey On The Inside)

By Chris Downton December 9, 2009

Gooey On The Inside

Since their formation back in May 2007, Melbourne-based duo Gooey On The Inside (aka Holly Fluxx and Kati Cubby) have been responsible for organising parties and art exhibitions (including an installation space at this year’s Electrofringe festival), whilst also somehow finding time to fit in graphic design work, a quarterly magazine and a blog that continues to generate a substantial fanbase. This debut 14 track unmixed CD compilation ‘Hit Machine XIVVII’ (packed in a lavish Dual Plover sleeve complete with sew on patch and fold-out poster) sees Gooey On The Inside expanding into a record label and collects together contributions from likeminded collaborations ranging from around Australia, to Japan and Chile. As the retina-dazzling fluoro sleeve art here suggests, this compilation sees Fluxx and Cubby concentrating on more retro-styled hiphop, synth-pop and rave styles, with the tracklisting here pretty much jumping all over the place, in enjoyable ADD-raddled style.

If OTT’s opening ‘Gold Star’ suggests a Modular meets Ministry Of Sound-esque trip ahead with its fusion of coolly detached Electroclash vocals and clicking tech-house rhythms, it’s nicely countered by Julia Rose’s side-step into vintage-sounding Latino electro-hiphop on the block party-worthy ‘Trato’, and the burbling, playful ‘Up Against The World’ synth pop meets Slits-esque punky vocals of Kt Spit’s ‘Up Against The World.’ Elsewhere, Pandie unleashes some hardcore house-meets 8bit gamecore sounds complete with pounding kickdrums with ‘Ur Magic’ , before Toxic Lipstick take things out into distorted noisy sampling and shouted pop vocals with ‘Horse 4eva’ (taken from last year’s ‘Poopin’ mini-album) and Pig & Machine’s savage breakcore-fuelled noise workout on ‘Dry And Crusty On The Outside (But Gooey On The Inside).’ If you’re a fan of the aforementioned Toxic Lipstick, then you pretty much already know what sorts of hyperactive antics to expect here, and in this case ‘Hit Machine XIVVII’ offers up an occasionally knowingly cheesy dose of noise that goes down a treat. Pack your red cordial.

setting up the koala 50000 exhibition...



.......

got an all night bus to santiago and spent the whole day getting all the work formatted for printing, and then running around the whole city getting the printing...(not as simple and straight forward as i assumed? ) haha.

sooo tired!!!
then went to gallery and set up till midnight.
we arrived and they had just painted the walls purple!! .. and said we couldnt use the upstairs gallery space, which is white, and had to use the downstairs space.
and that we werent allowed to hang anything, only use tape!!!!

it was challenging to work within those parameteres like...on the spot, but we did it!!!!!

party is tonight!!!
more photos to come soon!!!
SO MUCH BIG THANKS TO RANO, CONNY, JANI and SHELAGH for all the hard work and 10 liters of pepsi

Q. what do you get when you cross Uffie with a shit Lady GaGa impersonator at schoolies on the gold coast????

she actually says po po

miss bolivia


MISS BOLIVIA is a girl mc based in argentina, she makes reggae, reggaeton, dancehall, rap,...... i went to her show in Buenos Aires, it was really good!!!!!
she has these MASSIVE dreads, like twice the size of her head !!
THe show was really fun and engaging, the band was : Miss bolivia (mc), a hype girl, and a live bassist (no dj).
fuulllly reggae style rapping in spanish, it was awesome!!!



she was confident and really relaxed, i havent been to many girl reggae/dancehall shows, in fact i think it was the first one i have seen. Miss Bolivia is queer and the audience was made up of like hipsters, drag queens, rasta guys, queer girls wearing metal shirts.....
soooo wierd and interesting mix of ppl!!!


Even tho i really love it, i think alot of dancehall and reggae can be quite homophobic and sexist, and so i thought it was so awesome and interesting and cool to go to this MASSIVE club and see this total mix of ppl and everyone just dancing and not caring about that shit.



here is link to a music video of MISS BOLIVIA






XOXOXOXOXO cubb
