Music Monday: Butts Butts Butts Butts Butts

by Kristy Tye

Happy Music Monday! It's me, the professed butt-lover and belove'd forum moderator, adq! I'm... I'm so sorry to you all for this week's selections already. I feel like it might be unnecessary to preface this with a warning, but these songs have NSFW lyrics and videos (depending, I guess, on your W).

Sir Mix-A-Lot - Baby Got Back

Oh my god, Becky, let's get this one out of the way. Sir Mix-A-Lot has provided us the quintessential butt song and karaoke favorite of thousands of aspiring "singers". It's led to the oft repeatable adage- "I enjoy large posteriors and I am incapable of deception" or something like that.

But, no doubt you've heard that one a million times already, that's only the tip of the gluteal iceberg, more after the cut!

The Fabulous TCONA4

by Kristy Tye

Trivia is an industry, and every industry has a trade show of their own! In this case, it's TCONA, the Trivia Championships Of North America. For one weekend each year, the casual and the powerhouses combine to have a little fun, swap a few secrets, learn all sorts of useful facts and maybe, just maybe, take home a medal. Social butterfly Kristy Tye (aka agingdragqueen on our forums) forsook the pool and gave trivia her full attention. How did that go? FUNNY YOU SHOULD ASK US...

A lot of people have asked me how the Trivia Championships of North America went (aka TCONA, as you may have heard about here), since, as it turned out I was not good at preempting the curiosity by telling my nerdy brethren in time to actually register and head to Vegas. Lesson learned, here’s a whole year’s notice: it went very well and I had a fabulous time, and you should come next year.

Come on inside and enjoy the recap. Oh, yeah, and you'll find some trivia questions waiting for you too.

Let's Talk About Big Tex

by Kristy Tye

This year was a really important year for me. Towards the end of the 2012 State Fair of Texas, Big Tex burned down due to an electrical fire. I honestly didn't think they'd replace him, how could they replace a Texan icon? But like a phoenix, Big Tex was reborn, debuting anew in this year's State Fair.


The thing that really took me by surprise was that they didn't even bother modernizing him. To the un-Texan eye, he looks exactly the same to you as he probably ever did, which is: creepy as hell. But there's more to him, friends, I want to teach you all about Big Tex.
