I’m sorry, maybe it’s the beast of a week I’ve had, or maybe just me being that queen (very likely), but this video is an utter and absolute delight! I mean, Irene Cara’s “Flashdance…What a Feeling”! Who doesn’t love that song? (Nobody.) And Joan Crawford dancing! Who doesn’t delight in Joan Crawford dancing? (Bette Davis, Christina Crawford, fools who refuse the imperative to dance.) My point is that this video’s as marvelous a salve to the week as it is a start to the weekend. And best of all:
Joan Crawford! “Flashdance…What a Feeling”! Halleloo It’s Friday!

Important Breaking News of Utmost Importance: Scissor Sisters’ Night Work Is Streaming Online!
June 25, 2010
You know what’s really, really gay in the most ferocious of ways? This promo still for the new Scissor Sisters album, Night Work:
Camp, after all, is a queer sensibility derived from the French slang camper, which means ”to pose in an exaggerated fashion”, and this photo is all about the highly stylized placement and posing of our beloved Sisters. Of course, this photo is also about Ana Matronic’s hair. And that double breasted jacket. And those fetching high heels. And Del Marquis being my favorite piece of guitar-playing, suited-up hot sex. And the pearls, OH, the pearls! In fact, the only thing that throws this picture off is Jake Shear’s vinyl underoos. Girl, don’t go butchin’ my heart!
ANYWAYS, the new Scissor Sisters album, Night Work, is streaming over on MySpace, and the Sisters and producer Stuart Price have met–nay, exceeded!–my every hope of making the most gloriously gay album EVER. Clearly this means you need to give it a listen. Immediately. And really, why wouldn’t you?
