Tuxedo- So Good (2013)

Living in the middle of downtown, right beside a private club, I see a lot of tipsy formally-dressed couples fighting about where they may have left the car, and none more adorable than a very flamboyant male/male partnership I recently observed. They followed my path for about half a block, and instead of the usual "just shut up and help me search", and general passive aggressiveness, there was a lot more "bitch, please", and sassy comments about the fit of each other's tuxedos. I realized, in that moment, that hetero couples have an awful lot to learn about fighting.

Patrice Rushen- Remind Me (1982)

When times get tough in the summer, I just remind myself that I've got a sixer of popsicles in the freezer calling my name and I don't have to wear pants for three months straight, and my stress just melts right away.

Lillo Thomas- (You're A) Good Girl (1983)

Ten days of plentiful shitty beer and debauchery all over the city. For those of you who are unaware, the Calgary Stampede is a time when the average businessman's job is to slam shots of jack between barmaids' hooters, dudes let their "little cowboy" hang a little too fast and loose out of ill-fitting Wranglers, and many local ladies adopt a "good girl gone bad" attitude, which is really just code word for "good girl that has had too many cocktails to remember the meanings of no and regret".

High Fashion- Show Me (1983)

It's Stampede time. They call it " The Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth", which I hold beef with, because I've seen De La Soul perform outside, and that was infinitely better.
