If you're stuck in a snow bunker like me (and most of the GA Voice staff), right about now, you're running out of stuff to look at online. While it might not last through the end of the “snowpocalypse,” here are a few of my favorite time killers:
Kyle.tv Long before Kyle Keyser was an outsider candidate in the 2009 Atlanta mayoral race, he was “a guy in Atlanta with a blog and a video camera.” Don't miss his short video clips, including a candid guest cameo by Margaret Cho.
Baton Twirling World Champion Stacy Singer I’m not sure how I found Stacy Singer, but I’m happy I did. As a baby gay, I had a red glitter baton that my dad used to hide from me. When I found it and started practicing again, this is what I looked like in my head.
“Holding Out for a Hero” by Tandi Iman Dupree You only get one chance to make a first impression and Tandi Iman Dupree makes it count with this unforgettable stage entrance. Skip to the 20-second mark for the money shot, but the whole performance is worth watching.
“It Gets Better,” a music video by Rebecca Drysdale A friend posted this on Facebook a few days ago, and it’s too good not to share. Rebecca Drysdale’s version of an “It Gets Better” video takes the campaign in another direction. It’s funny and well-worth a click.
“Firework” by Gigi Monroe Even as I watch queens duke it out at Atlanta’s new drag competition Dragnique, I think about how much I miss Gigi Monroe. She’s been performing all around the country for the past couple of years, and recently, this gem popped up online. For more, check out Gigi’s personal YouTube.
And if that’s not enough for you, don’t forget to peruse GA Voice’s own video list.
