Drinking with a man who suffers from Gender Identity Disorder.

Alright. This show was a doozy. I met Peter on a shoot I was working on and we instantly hit it off and began talking about all sorts of shit. I assumed, ignorantly so, that because he does drag, that he is gay. He corrected me, and told me of his life in the military and his wife. That pretty much 'blew my mind up' (to quote the great Wendy the Retard) and I instantly knew he had to come on the show.

As Peter explained to me, he has Gender Identity Disorder. To put it in the most basic of terms, he wakes up every morning wishing he was a girl, and wanting the body, emotions, and life that a woman would have. And he has known this since he was a boy. He was raised in Arkansas, the son of a pastor, and he hated himself for these feelings. Because of all this inner turmoil, he became a skinhead at 15 years old and even beat up a friend of his who came out to him as gay.

He eventually joined the military, got married, discovered drag, and realized that perhaps there was another self - we'll call her, "Michelle," that could help him actualize who he was truly meant to be. He might still explore that further, should he decide to make the full transition into becoming a woman.

We had a chance to play a few tunes too:

The Way - Bonnie Prince Billy
Hold On Magnolia - Songs: Ohia
Parting Gift - Fiona Apple
Hold On - John Lennon
When - Vincent Gallo
More Than This - Roxy Music
Song to Sing When I'm Lonely - John Frusciante
Lucky Charm - Jets to Brazil

It was really interesting to meet Peter and have him open up and explain as much as he could. Every question I had, he answered honestly and earnestly. I appreciate him coming on and being so open with his life!

As if that weren't enough, Courtney and I then got the call to do the Superfan Roundtable Show while shopping at Barneys! It was fucking awesome. We got to talk to Ralph and Jeff the Drunk. I mean, seriously??!?!?!! I do believe that is every girl's dream come true.

So that was our rad week in NYC. Oh, I also bought an insane pair of Marni booties at the Barneys warehouse sale. Normally $1000, I got them for $200. I then proceeded to get my heart trampled on. Can you believe that shit?

Next week, I think we'll have a guest. Perhaps DJ Dougpound??? Who knows.....

Drinking with Thee Cormans

We were LUCKY enough to have Thee Cormans come into our little studio to hang out with us, sip some wine and talk some trash. Though they look like human Ratfinks, they were sweet enough to bring Courtney and I t-shirts and records!! True gentlemonsters.

Now, for the juicy shit. Their names are Shaved Ape, Fagenstein, and The Creature. After not much poking and prodding, we discovered that Fagenstein puts the kink in the Thee Cormans. You see, he enjoys dripping candlewax all over his ladies. How does he figure out if his new lovers will be into this? Well it's all in the music selection! What music is that, you ask? Nick Cave, Fagenstein claims.

Shaved Ape also divulged that while assisting Fagenstein with his most recent move, he found neckties knotted to his mattress! Yowza! Some BDSM shit!

The next day I recieved a text that Fagenstein's girlfriend almost dumped him over this revealing interview. See what you get when you listen to Drinking With Them? We destroy relationships, unwittingly.
