Twerk Cookies… Greatest Cookies EVER.

Our good friend Jonathan over at Orange Juice & Biscuits (a popular NYC-based fashion blog) sent us what I consider the greatest  Christmas cookie cut-outs of ALL TIME.

For those of who you don’t know what twerkin is, check out Merch’s “The Meaning of Twerk” article.

And here are a few video showcasing some of my favorite twerk moves.

And now, I bring you, Twerk Cookies!

New Year’s Eve 2011-2012 w/ Big Freedia & Turquoise Jeep: The Aftermath

Ringing in the new year with the Queen of New Orleans bounce, Big Freedia, and the ridiculous Turquoise Jeep crew made for one of the most epic nights ever.

The names have been changed in order to protect the innocent… Also, here’s some video!

First up, Turquoise Jeep (the guys who brought you the viral video “Lemme Smang It”), came out hot, with Flynt Flossy doing a freestyle.

Another Flynt Flossy track, “Did I Mention I Like To Dance,” got everyone doing just that. I don’t think I’ve danced so hard in my entire life. The Turquoise Jeep crew even had a dance-off on stage. Flynt’s moonwalk definitely took the cake.

And of course, the Queen Diva, Big Freedia, gets everyone shaking their booties with her track, “Azz Everywhere.” She loves to get the audience involved, including letting them come shake it on stage, but she still dominates when it comes to bouncin.

Big Freedia Booty-Poppin’ Workout Video!

If only Big Freedia taught a bounce workout class in Austin, the Queen Diva could teach some of us Austinites how to sweat while we pop, lock n drop it.

And for some more booty-bouncin’ action, check out our Big Freedia videos from Fun Fun Fun Fest 2010!

And our interview with the Queen Diva, herself:

“Independent B!tche$” Mixtape!

We have always been a huge supporter of rockstar ladies, so we decided to combine our fav’s in this mixtape.  All these femme fatal’s sing about being bad asses, are super hot and their tracks will for sure get yo’ body movin’ better than the Beastie Boys Fatboy Slim remix.  These chicks demand your attention and have super sex-appeal, all the while making awesome music. Is that enough enticement to make you to hit download?

Big Freedia | “Let It Go Nah”

Oh, Big Freedia, how fantastic you are! “Let It Go Nah” seems to be New Orleans’ “Queen Diva” shot at a Top 40 track, and it’s actually really impressive. Granted, we would love any release from Freedia, but I could see this getting some radio play, or at least some serious YouTube if the video looks anything like this.
