DJ Spotlight

DJ DQ An interview by Allen Grubaugh h How did you get your start as a DJ? It all started with mix tapes and creating a collection or. I began of music for whatever the mood called for. to feel very passionate about creating musical sets designed for parties or friends...making something unique and personal to remind you of a connection shared.

What do you enjoy most about your job? Most definitely the bodies moving, the non-stop g, queens grooving, asses shaking, floors breaking, freaking, hoe’s creeping, divas flowing, and everybody with their hands to the sky.

What was the ah-ha moment in n your life that made you realize you were in the e right career?

3. “Young Hearts Run Free” (Paradise Loft Mix) Respect ft Hannah Jones 4. “Saturday Night, Sunday Morning” T-empo 5. “The Love In Your Eyes” Dan Hartman

It was the moment I felt pure joy and myy higher power come together as one in the music.

Tell us about your most hilarious DJ moment? Well it involved a Drag Show, me in the restroom, a skipping cd, and a locked DJ booth. It was hilarious!

DJ DQ’s top ten music playlist:

What is your dream DJ gig? Me, Frankie Knuckles, Larry Levine, Warren Gluck, Susan Morabito, David Knapp and Chad Jack, deep in a pile of music, on the beach at Fire Island or the amazing Station 4, playing off of each other to sea of sweaty bodies... And for shits and giggles, Madonna would have to wait to get inside. As if, but you know that shit would be funny!

What advice could you offer someone who is aspiring to be a DJ? Never compromise your artistic integrity!

We always ask for your top ten playlist, but this time I want to ask you for some of the songs that are you very favorites. What songs would you suggest our readers should listen to? These are songs that have stopped me dead in my tracks and left me speechless!

1. Madonna - Turn Up The Radio (Offer Nissim Remix) 2. Beyoncé - End Of Time (Eduardo Brava Rework) 3. Jennifer Lopez - Dance Again (Edson Pride unreleased Mix) 4. Richard D. Curtin - Shopping (Spin Sista’s “Cha-Ching” anthem mix) 5. Roy Rox ft Nelson - Love Me (ATFC’s Soultek Vocal) 6. Tore - Music Pumping (Tore & Pacchi Vocal Mix) 7.

Apple and Apricot Pork Chops By Blue Jean Granny Apple and Apricot Pork Chops

H

Ingredients:

i there Guys and Gals,

I have been talking to several people who love fresh fruit salad but hate to make it. It is the peeling they do not like to do. If you feel that way, let me help you out with that problem. When you wish to peel tomatoes, peaches, plumbs, or nectarines just put a pan of water on the stove and heat to boiling. Drop the fruits into the boiling water a few at a time for about 30 seconds, remove with slotted spoon and drop immediately into a bowl of ice water, you will find the skins slide off very easily. If you find a piece of fruit that is not as ripe as it should be and the peel is sticking just pop it back in the boiling water for a few seconds and the skin should loosen right up. Do not forget to sprinkle your cut fruit with Fruit Fresh or lemon juice to help keep the fruit from darkening. Fresh fruit salad is so good for you and you can find some really good sales on them right now. If you want to get fancy throw in a few nuts to give the salad that little crunch. Cherries have really been sweet and very reasonably priced the past couple of weeks. Yes I know they have little pits in them, but you can purchase a cherry pitter at most kitchen supple departments for about $10 and they are well worth the money if you like cherries. I have made several jars of jam and pitting the cherries was not a problem. For me this is jam time, plan to put up a few jars of peach jam in the morning, and some apricot jam in a day or so. I intended to make the apricot jam last week, but ate the apricots before I could can them. There are many ways to enjoy fruit and I have a recipe today that you may like, using both fresh and dried fruit. We are also going to crank up the crock pot. This is a pork recipe and is called:

Pg.12

4 pork filets or chops 1 cup peeled and chopped apples 1 cup chopped dried apricots ½ cup fresh or dried cranberries 1 medium onion, chopped 2 ribs celery, sliced in ½ inch slices ½ cup apple juice ½ cup brown sugar ¼ cup dry white wine or more apple juice salt and pepper to taste 1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons cold water Instructions: Combine all ingredients except the cornstarch and water in a 3-4 quart crock pot. Cover and cook 7 to 8 hours on low, or until port is very tender. 30 minutes before serving remove the chops to a plate, cover with foil and set aside. Then mix the cornstarch and water together and stir into the mixture in the crock pot and cook until thicken. Time varies with the amount of liquid in the pot but will take only 4 or 5 minutes. Serve the chops and sauce over rice or cooked noodles. Hints: 1. Get chops that are about ¾ of an inch thick or so. 2. I like to put half of the fruit mixture in the crock pot then the pork and then the rest of the fruit mixture to cook. 3. Granny Smith apple is good in this 4. Use your kitchen shears to cut up the apricots

5. Do not chop the onion too fine or it will disappear. 6. You can buy small cans of juices to keep in your pantry for cooking. I usually have apple, orange and pineapple in mine. 7. If you do not like cranberries, chopped dates or raisins are also good. 8. Actually you can use any combo of fruit you like, just stick to these amounts. Canned pineapple chunks Oranges would be good.

or

Mandarin

9. I like to serve over brown rice. 10. When I remove the pork from the pot, I set it in a 200 degree oven to stay warm. 11. If the sauce is too thick to suit your taste just thin a little before serving with a little wine or apple juice. Guess that is about all for today, do get out there and take advantage of those Farmers Markets while they are in full swing. In the meantime work smart, play hard and take time out for a cookie.

The Power of Polaroid… What are We Creating? Remember the Polaroid camera? Instant photos? Today they’re obsolete, but many of us are still using the Polaroid model of instant photos, only now the process seems to be getting us into trouble! Let me give you an example. Take a mental snapshot of what you’re thinking of the next time you find yourself worrying or concerned about something. And then take a good look at the photo/image you’ve created. Not only is there a good chance the photo is limiting in some way, but the negative image is setting up conditions for your future self to fail, or at the very least to not get what you want. According to author Lynne McTaggart in her book The Field, quantum mechanics teaches us that the conscious observer brings the observed object into being. Nothing in the universe exists as an actual thing independent of our perception of it, so every minute of every day we are creating our world. Which simply means, as we plan our future—tomorrow’s meeting, how we’re going to pay the bills, what the job interview will be like— we’re getting a very clear image of the event, and almost always we’re creating it laced with worry or concern. And if that’s the case, then that’s what we are going to get. I just returned from working in Tokyo, and while the trip was spectacular, educational and enlightening, the only reason it was a great trip was because I intentionally started changing the photos I was producing at lightning speed. You see I had already set up in my mind how scared I’d be in getting around the city, because I only knew a few words of Japanese. In fact I even joked that if I didn’t return on time to please start searching, I was probably still wandering around the streets of Tokyo trying to find my hotel. I had created in detail a clear photo

Pg. 18

of myself feeling anxious and unsure and possibly getting very lost. This same instant photography is always going on in our heads when we’re setting up our future selves for failure, instead of success. It would seem logical that we need to aim our internal lens in a different direction. Start thinking differently, if we want different results! I can offer many examples, good and bad, of how powerfully this works. As an example a Japanese woman in my class explained how difficult it is in Japan to get a job if you’re a woman and of a certain age, and therefore for her it became a reality. On the other hand I have a close friend who went to Hollywood straight out of college and decided she would write successful TV shows She’s talented, but so are thousands of others, but she saw it happening, just knew it would. One of her many successful shows was Designing Women. So let’s become a camera with a freeze frame lens that focuses on what we want to happen, keeping it vibrant and bright and in full color, and then add the excitement of feeling like we’re in that photo. It was Helen Keller who said how sad that people have 20/20 eyesight, but no vision. We are already creating visions that become our reality, but it’s time to make sure we’re focusing on what we want, and zooming in with great clarity. After all the only person we truly have control over is ourselves, and when we start to use our control to clearly visualize what we want (not what we don’t want), then we can create an awesome photo album of future events!

Lawanda Jackson.... At the top, looking towards the future while glancing at the past By Thomas “DJ Big Daddy” Edmond

L

et’s go back in time to May 22nd – 25th. Girls have come from all over the country, hotels are booked, fans and friends are all in one place and ready for one of the biggest female impersonation pageants of the year: Miss Gay USofA 2012. After a year of countless prelims, about 35 qualified contestants have gone through a week’s worth of judging and drama, just to get to the BIG SHOW and make the top 12. At the end of the last night, USofA Pageants crowned a new First Lady for 2012, the one and only Lawanda Jackson: the reigning Miss Gay Texas USofA. Lawanda earned the crown by charming and impressing the panel of judges with her poise, wit, beauty, her down to earth style, fun personality, and her passion for what female impersonation is, and what she represents.

pageants. It’s great to be able to talk with a performer like Lawanda who knows what it was like to be a female impersonator in pre RuPaul’s Drag Race days of drag and to hear what she thinks of the current state of drag and what she sees for the future of drag and pageants.

Just one year earlier Lawanda was crowned Miss Gay Texas USofA. The prelim title for Miss Gay USofA, which holds just as much weight and is as sought after as much as the main title of Miss Gay USofA. Now that Lawanda has won the title, she stands up on a mountain top with such great names as Michael Andrews (1986), Tommie Ross (1988) Erika Norell(2001) and Layla Larue (2004) who is also the current Miss Gay USofA Classic. USofA has over 26 holders to the crown.

So after that is when you decided to do drag as a career choice?

Being a part of USofA, and to be Miss Gay USofA is a major dream and goal for a lot of girls that do shows and pageants. To be Miss Gay Texas USofA is a major stepping stone for any girl that lives and works in Texas. Why? Well Texas is the home state of USofA pageants and the state itself has the most prelims out of all the states that host a USofA Pageant. Winning the title alone of Miss Gay Texas USofA can keep a girl very busy during her time as well as beyond her reign. Lawanda’s road to Miss Gay USofA has been a long one. You will see in this interview she is as well seasoned to the stages around Texas and

Pg. 24

When and where did you start your drag career? Well it was in 1979, back in Portland Oregon. I was in high school and some friends entered me, in the school’s talent show and I won it all. Those kids didn’t know what hit them and they were surprised it was me when I took off that wig. What song did you do back then? Oh, it was Star Love by Cheryl Lynn. I still do that one every now and then.

Yes, I guess you can say I got bit by the bug. I remember my grandmother telling me that if I was going to do drag that I needed to learn every aspect of it all. Not just dancing and performing on stage in front of folks, but all of it, make up , and the whole business side of it. I came to find out, after she passed, that she had been a singer in a group when she was younger. So she was grooming me to be more than a show girl but to be a smart business person too. So after High School is that when you moved to Houston? No I went and ran for Miss Oregon in 1980 it was my first pageant and I also won. Then I moved to Houston shortly after, but I was not new to Houston, I had been visiting my dad who lived there ever since I was 16 back in 1975. Wow. What was it like being that young and gay in Houston in the 70’s.

August 17, 2012


Well I remember I was at the mall and this guy told me I was cute and wanted to take me out. He took me to the Copa and the first show I saw featured, Naomi Simms, Donna Day, Hot Chocolate, and Tasha Kohl. Back then they were known as the “Fab 4”. That’s also when I met Tommie Ross and we all remain good friends. So your visits here and the friends you made were among the reasons you settled in Houston, Texas. When was that? It was around 1981, I made the move after I won

August 17, 2012

Miss Oregon and the first club I had the chance to work in was Cousins. Now that was a great place to work. I was on cast with Tommie Ross. Well you and Miss Ross are such classic beauties. Most young performers now have Drag Moms. Did you and Tommie Ross have Drag moms then? Oh no honey, see that’s something that has kind of been around in the past few years or so. See back then we didn’t have drag moms, we were more like sisters. We looked out for each

TWIT

Pg. 25


other and formed true gay families, and we are still sisters till this day. Also, your home bar owner and staff was your family. They took care of you and watched out for you. Back then, we really had to watch out for each other. The kids now have a lot more freedom. They can leave the house in full drag and sometimes not worry, but back then we had to watch out. We had to have our male clothes on under our drag clothes, because you never knew if the cops were going to raid the bar and take you to jail - just for being dressed up like a lady. Yeah, it does seem all business now when it comes to many of the clubs and bars. So I take it Cousins was your home bar? Yes. It was the owner of Cousins who sponsored me in the first pageant I did right after I moved to Houston. He wanted me to run for Miss Houston America back in 1982. He handed me $100 and had faith in me. I came back with the title of Miss Gay Houston America 1982. I’ve been off and running ever since and haven’t stopped. Have you tried to run for almost every system that has come your way? No, but I have run for the systems I truly have felt I wanted to be a part of such as EOY (Entertainer of the Year), Continental, and USofA. I never ever gave up just because I would come in 1st runner up. That just meant I had to work harder. So what was it about USofA that made you want to be a part of this system? I love USofA. I love Jerry Bird and Craig Henderson. USofA is open to everyone. They are fair and honest. It’s real family. They let you know if you win it is because you came correct, nothing else. When you are right, you are right. If you were wrong, then they let you know where you truly were wrong and tell you how or what you need to do to fix it before you come back next year. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you came from, or what. They are fair. Look at me; I am rewriting the history books of USofA. Tell everyone what you have done that is changing the way we look at Pageants? Well, I am the oldest Miss Gay Texas USofA, the oldest Miss Gay USofA, and I’m the first Miss Gay USofA Classic to come back and take the Miss Gay USofA title. I am very proud of that , that’s why when I take the mic and host a show I let everyone know I’m over fifty, and if I did it they can do it also. Now whoever you crown has some big shoes to fill after you. So what do you feel a girl has to have to become Miss Gay Texas USofA?

Pg. 26

The girl that becomes or wants to become Miss Texas has to have likeability. And I’m not talking about with the judges, I’m talking about with the people that she will come in contact with as she represents Texas USofA. She must also be respectable, approachable, smart, and have a head for business. A head for business? Why, does she need to market herself? No but she must be able to work with and for Craig Henderson, and the Texas USofA prelim system. She must be able to sell the system to pageant owners and make sure we have plenty of great backers and contestants for the next year. If she won’t take out just a few moments of her day just to speak with a fan of hers or the system then people will say she is cold and unapproachable, and no bar or club owners will want to take a moment to listen to her and pick up a prelim and no girls will want to run for the title while she has it. This is just the start of your reign, and you have so many shows and appearances coming up. What do fans like to see you do in your shows? Oh they love for me to do Mary J Blige. Then there is Tina Turner live, and every one really loves when I do my Michael and Janet Jackson number. Now on that number, I work. It takes a lot of dancing on that number. (she laughs) So your reign as Miss Gay USofA, and how you got to it, will be the stuff that will have people talking for a long time to come. But, May 2013 will come soon and so what is it you see yourself doing for the future? Well I want to do more outreach work, ‘cause there are too many people out there who need someone to talk to and just be there to listen. I also plan to be a part, of a new program with USofA. It will be called the Dream Team. It will be 3 of us that will become mentors to the new girls that are a part and that have joined the USofA newcomer system. It’s very important to have someone to help them get use to the system, mold them and introduce them as performers inside of the system. When I was asked to do this interview by my editor I was so excited, and yet I truly had no idea what a treat was in store for me. Lawanda, you are so insightful. Your life is like a movie that should be told. Or, perhaps you should write a book or do speaking engagements. I think many would be moved by you and your stories. Before closing this interview, is there anything you want to say to your fans, girls that look up to you, or those who have just been introduced to you?

TWIT

August 17, 2012


I want to say, Thank You, Big Daddy and Allen for doing this story and interview on me. I can’t wait to see it in TWIT and I am glad to see TWIT back out. It’s been around for so long and it was a major part of gay life in Texas and it’s nice to see it out again, and better than before. I also want to tell people: Never give up on your dream; never let anyone tell you that you can’t do something; don’t let age or sexuality or anything thing hold you back from what you want. Look at me; I didn’t stop because I’m past fifty. I love USofA.

August 17, 2012

I love being able to hold this title and represent the all the girls that have passed on and hope to be an inspiration to anyone who wants to make their dreams happen. I want the people reading this to aspire to become everything you ever wanted to be, and go for any and everything you can. Never give up - even when you feel like you can’t go on. And if you need someone to talk to and listen, you can reach out to me and I will be there for you.

when you think it’s about to slow down, it hits you fast again. Just the remixes of “Thunder Kiss 65” and “Let It All Bleed Out”, makes this one fiery and fascinating remix cd. The production and remixes on this cd are some satisfying works, the record has a great blend of dance and rock music. Mondo Sex Head is a lot of fun and a great party album, and that’s what you want when you want to have a great party, if you can look past all the gimmicks. Rob Zombie is just that a gimmick man, he uses it in his movies and music and if you have ever seen a White Zombie show, you know it’s all about his stage show.

Music

There are plenty of those who look too deep into things and that makes them hate or dislike Rob Zombie. They take him way too seriously and I seriously doubt Zombie takes what he does seriously, but whatever he does, it’s all fun and it shows in his music and movies . Mondo Sex Head is harmless fun and a great cd to throw on when you workout and need a little push or if you need to work on a new pole dancing trick for an upcoming strip tease contest.

Rating B ( just a pure harmless fun party cd)

O

k, I know you saw the name and title and said, “Rob Zombie, Dj Big Daddy, really?” Well, good music is good music. It doesn’t matter if it’s a diva or a spaced out scary looking hillbilly such as Rob Zombie, who is not only a great musician and horror movie film maker but also a theme park designer.

Rob Zombie has musically always been ahead of his time. It doesn’t matter if it was with his group White Zombie or his solo releases, Zombie is no stranger to a remix album as far back as 1996 with his album Supersexy Swinging Sounds and 1991’s American Made Music To Strip By. It was as if was looking towards the 21st century electronic dance music. Now here in 2012, he drops Mondo Sex Head, and there are tears of joy from strip club dancers and dj’s all over the country as I write this review.

Big Daddy’s Heyyyy Tracks (the song that make you say hey,dude that’s my song l) #1 Thunder Kiss 65’ - Jdevil remix (a party classic with a slight 2012 twist on it) #3. Let It All Bleed Out - document one remix (sounds like a score for a horror movie) Thomas “DJ Big Daddy” Edmond operates PrideDJsRadio.com and can be reached at DJBigDaddy@TWITmagazine.com. TWIT

Mondo Sex Head (don’t ask me what the title means) is a remix collection of 13 favorite Zombie tracks with remixes done by Jonathon Davis of Korn as well as Photek, it’s ok if you don’t know the names of the remixers, these guys are superstars on the electronic, rave/industrial/metal music scene, so it’s safe to say if you are a Lady Gaga fan this might be too heavy for your pretty mind, but if you grew up in Texas and went to clubs such as Numbers, and you love groups like Front 242, Nine Inch Nails and Orgy, then hello, this is for you... Mondo Sex Head is a like a soundtrack for a roller coaster ride, it takes off fast and hard and just

Aries March 20 April 19

Cancer June 21 July 22

People are drawn to your magnetic aura--like an actor or mimic, you easily take on characteristics that will please lovers and not appear threatening to them. Freedom in a relationship is very important to you, and you resist anyone who may try to fence you in. You want honesty between you and your lover and above all, sincerity. To the object of your affection, you bring much enthusiasm and optimism.

Once infatuation begins to bubble, you usually do too much rather than too little. It’s not from lack of judgment--although desires and dreams rule over logic and reason for most Cancers. You tend to get a bit confused knowing when to say “no” to lovers who request more than is necessary. You’re not a wimp; you simply aim to please, and everybody likes you for that. Mature, stable and independent partners suit you best.

Taurus April 20 May 20 You carefully choose lovers and friends who are straightforward, and make very few demands. It’s not that you are unwilling to improvise or share responsibilities, you simply enjoy freedom and abhor co-dependence. You have a sharp tongue, and a jelly filled heart. Strive for equality in your partnerships, do your part, and help lovers define theirs. Don’t let your romantic checklist imprison enjoyment! Gemini May 21 June 20 You devote a great deal of energy to your lover’s interests, always planning things as a couple which may be misinterpreted as controlling, depending on how discreet you are-so be careful not to overlook or overbook your partner’s needs, and don’t second guess his or her dreams! You enjoy independent minded companions who are self motivated, as long as they remember what makes a relationship work for you. You are sincere about affections and not hesitant about demonstrating them.

Pg. 50

Leo July 23 August 22 When you are inspired to secure a desired partner, you throw yourself into first gear and commence an unremitting journey towards winning the heart of the targeted suitor. You love to be in love, as well as active and busy. You crave social acceptance and peer approval. Attention, affection, and close companionship are essential to your equilibrium. Nothing makes you feel worse than loneliness. Virgo August 23 September 22 Because you possess a healthy ego, you need a lover who is equally self assured and independent, although impulsive partners don’t turn you on. Being a devoted friend, you invest lots of personal time in your circle of pals, but it’s not necessary that your lover hang out with your chums--after all, everything you do is premeditated, and everybody is assigned their own special place in your datebook and life.

Libra September 23 October 22 You believe that two heads are better than one, and are rarely, if ever, the aggressor. A believer in positive thinking, you encourage lovers to express themselves, try a little harder, and examine matters differently--as well as getting them to enjoy and explore the beauty of commitment! You respond to people truly, sincerely, and personably, and your honesty stimulates them to respond to you the same. Scorpio October 23 November 21 Always the fantasy fanatic and believer in someone for everyone, you leave no possible stone unturned when pursuing an object of affection. Your passion is quickly aroused-always titillated by the teasing, one on one seduction, and other games of love, while always keeping the romance “dance” exciting. You have an uncanny ability to size up suitors, and jive best with mature, but uncomplicated partners. Sagittarius November 22 December 21 You don’t quite get the concept of unconditional love and tend to be impatient with laid back, unfocused partners. You don’t offer yourself

to a lover, friend or family casually, at least not without an attached string or two. Although honest and patient, you expect a 50-50 split in responsibilities. You are an idealist, but a practical one, and won’t make an emotional commitment unless there is solid evidence that the feeling is mutual. Capricorn December 21 January 19 You communicate your needs to a partner easily--a natural 1/2 born talent, rather than a learned skill. You have a special gift for understanding others problems, able to quickly put yourself into another’s shoes. When alone, you find it difficult to do anything wholeheartedly-whereas, with a partner, your energies flourish, flow and grow. Your emotional responses are reserved and serious; however, you never sacrifice integrity for the sake of a relationship. Aquarius January 20 February 18 You make a list, construct a game plan, and go for it, particularly in matters of love. You’re not closed-minded; you merely consider yourself a goal-setter and achiever who is willing to do anything for the sake of maintaining a relationship. You communicate effectively and have a flair for dramatic delivery. You may not have many friends and loved ones, but you will always be close to those you have. Pisces February 19 March 20 Idealistic about relationships, you enter them feeling that everything will work out fine, regardless of one another’s history. You want to believe “be here now” but often wind up with the old “way we were” issues. Face it; it’s very hard for you to let go. Moving forward is scary for you, but they can, and do. Don’t let temporary objects of affection take advantage of you. Make all friends and partners prove their worth before accepting them completely!
