Friday Random Ten

So, I’m assuming almost everyone is dressing up as a sexy nurse, a sexy pirate or a sexy gangster for Halloween this weekend. Something sexy, for sure. Or, as G.D. mentioned earlier, something potentially racist.

But not me. I plan to dress myself in pants two sizes too large, a doo-rag and something really feminine. Like a tunic. Or a wig. I’ll be going as a rejected Morehouse applicant.

That said, if you are headed out into the wild and unpredictable night on Saturday, here’s a playlist to keep the evil spirits and preteen panhandlers away:

1. Nightmares by Clipse (Jamelle)

2. Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr. (Blackink)

3. Getting Scared by Imogen Heap (Shani-o)

4. Second Child by Bilal (Slb)

5. Somebody’s Watching Me by Rockwell (Blackink)

6. Monster Mash by Robert George Pickett (Belleisa)

7. Mind Playing Tricks on Me by The Geto Boys (Blackink)

8. Dracula’s Lament by Jason Segel (Slb)

9. Never Scared (remix) by Bonecrusher feat. Jadakiss, Cam’ron and Busta Rhymes (Blackink)

10. Scream by Michael & Janet Jackson (Shani-o)

Thought we were gonna include “Thriller,” huh? GTFOH.

Please, enjoy the weekend. And think sexy.

  • LaJane Galt

  • Awesome tracklist! I posted Japan’s Hallowe’en on my blog. I have no idea what it actually has to do with Hallowe’en, but…it’s totally one of my favourite songs ever. :)

    This post and others I’ve seen elsewhere have gotten me thinking. It’s really a testament to the pervasiveness of patriarchy that “sexy” is now an appellation almost exclusively used to describe women (for that matter, the word “woman” is so often equated with “conventionally attractive, thin heterosexual female” that you’d think the rest of us just don’t exist). Hellooooooo male gaze. I’ve heard people defend misogynistic/objectifying advertisements with the statement “sex sells.” Because the cisgendered, conventionally attractive, usually white female body = ‘sex’ now. And ‘sex’ = some group of traditionally acceptable sexual displays of male dominance we believe all straight men enjoy (sshhh, other men don’t exist except in Vermont). Or should enjoy. Male subs…where???

    Shit is confining as hell. :(

    And ugh, the racist costumes I saw this past weekend! Didn’t ruin my good time, but…I really didn’t need to see the Nazi and his concentration camp victim. Did I mention I was out with a German? Yeah. People are stupid.

    Also: white people in the South need to stop fetishizing American Indians about five minutes ago. Holy crap with the feathers and headbands. Just stop it already.
