BoinkMusic: N.E.R.D.

It’s so wonderful to have avatars, pseudonyms, alter egos, roles to play different from the one you have to play most every day. Superhero, doctor, wounded WWII fighter pilot, you name it, as we at Boinkology know, our fantasy spaces are our greatest possessions. So it only makes…

BoinkMusic: Hercules and Love Affair

Ahh, Hercules and Love Affair, the group that is fast bringing gay nightlife culture back to the mainstream. And while reviewers and critics like to offhandedly comment on their gender-bending and pansexuality as mere sideshow spectacle, their distance is obvious, the slight fear…

BoinkMusic: Jackson Conti

A few months ago when it was still cold and rainy, I couldn’t wait for the sun to start shining. It finally did, but it seems sunshiny and warm got bypassed as temps went straight to hot and sticky. I’ve tried to adapt, but the feeling of my legs sticking to train seats on the commute to …

BoinkMusic: Jose James

Sometimes a connection proves cosmic. You meet someone and it’s instantaneous; sentences are completed, the most abstract ideas immediately understood, there is a total meld. This week’s BoinkMusic track was like that for me, and I feel like it just might be the one…

BoinkMusic: Guillemots

While it’s nice to think that sex will always happen when you’re in just the right mood and the environment is just so, most of us know that that is rarely (if ever) the case. Sometimes you have sex because it’s cold outside and you don’t want to get out of your warm bed or because …

BoinkMusic: Santogold

The few years I spent working on the slimy under-bottom of the music industry left me with a newfound sympathy for the underdog. Every day hard-working, fiercely-talented, people got doors slammed in their face, their meticulously created demo CDs thrown in the trash, and their …

BoinkMusic: The Tough Alliance

Sometimes you’ve just got to make things work. Sometimes you wake up in someone else’s bed half an hour before work and the odds are stacked against you. Any one else might be daunted, but not you; somehow you manage to put together a pretty fly new outfit with a borrowed shirt…

BoinkMusic: The Republic Tigers

They say opposites attract, and my current situation proves that is most certainly true. My boyfriend and I met in New York City but by some odd stroke I got dragged back to live in his small Alpine town. When we go out hiking, he always laughs at my fear of scaling hilly cliffs and…

BoinkMusic: Sam Sparro

Summer is just around the corner and there are always oh so many things to get ready for: open air concerts, trips to the beach, barbeques, and, of course (most importantly), not wearing so many clothes. I recently told a single friend that there is no time like summer to start building a…

BoinkMusic: Joel Alme

In the 2006 documentary about him, Slavoj Žižek (philosopher and all-around fun guy) said “love is evil”. In his verbose way, he basically said that love is an act of violence where you pick someone at the exclusion of all others, and – because of this – love contributes to the imbalance…
