Michael Jackson and the entire Jackson family have never been strangers to fabulous sparkle outfits, but today’s Sparkle Video shows MJ at his most dazzle-tastic. From his glittering silver boots to his gem-encrusted striped pants that accentuate his every move, to his matching sparkling top.  He’s truly a sight to behold!  This vision is made even more fantastic by the green laser beams dancing behind him, adding magical shapes and shadows to this performance of “Rock With You” and makes this timeless classic even more unforgettable.



I vowed to never post a video from YouTube’s Vevo because they can’t be viewed in some areas around the world.  That’s something I find totally unacceptable as our Soldiers are global and intergalactic.  However, one look at this video from Diamond Rings and I melted like glitter covered butter!  How could I resist the charms of this tall, blonde mysterious man who proudly wears space outfits, lives among gobs of smoke, wears glasses tiled with broken mirrors and taunts me with eons of laser beams?  Top top it off, any song called “I’m Just Me” that espouses a “no excuse/no apologies” attitude about being who you are will always become my new favorite instantly.



Apologies Soldiers- with only 8 days left to go before we embark on our legendary evening together on November 10, there hasn’t been much time for writing.  Mostly due to putting the finishing touches on my sparkle outfit which always takes a bit of time, but in the middle of  Hurricane Sandy it’s taking a bit longer than usual.  However, as you all know, I never miss a Sparkle Video day because it’s something I look forward to all week and today’s clip is another example of that fabulosity we love.   The shimmering ladies of Class Action are dressed in THE height of 80’s disco fashion- from the clothing silhouettes to the gold dripped everything and especially the use of head bands (yes- we all wore them!).  It’s all accented with the only accessory one needs to make a point on the dance floor.. . a laser. Topped off with this funky cover of “Weekend” makes this one of my favorite videos of all time!

Join the Sparkle Army: NOVEMBER 10, 2012!

It’s that time again Soldiers!  In one month I’ll be packing up my sequins, getting on a jet plane and heading straight to Berlin for my favorite night of the year…

Join The Sparkle Army on November 10, 2012 at Monster Ronson’s in fabulous Friedrichshain!

You are all cordially invited to pledge your devotion to the Word of Glitter along with me, Da General, and the dashing Master of Ceremonies, Monster Ronson himself.  Together we’ll be hosting another night of dazzling on the dance floor under disco balls and laser beams and it’s sure to be an extra sparkling night!  The evening kicks off with Berlin’s own Juan of a Kind who’s sure to put you in a party state of mind and special guest and dancing sensation,Jackee Word, is going to show us all how to get down tonight!   A LIVE performance from the The Supermen Lovers is going to blow your mind!  They’re taking their private spaceship all the way the way from Galaxy Francais (that’s France!) just to make you shake your booty so hard, it just might fall off.  But don’t let it- because you’re gonna need it for when DJ Massimiliano Pagliara takes over the decks and spins you into a dancing vortex with an ultra galactic disco set!  All of the most dazzling things in one place, for just one night…  and it’s going to be LEGENDARY!

Oh and did I mention that you should wear sparkles?  Not only because it’s approved, but because we’ll also be giving one lucky soldier a 50 Euro bar tab prize for being the sparkliest spaced out sparkle slut in the joint.  Plus, those who glitter get in free before midnight so be sure to sparkle up so you can party down…  with all of us!

It all happens on that magical date 10-11-12 at 23 Uhr …..  That’s November 10, 2012 at 11pm for my fellow non- europeans!

I can’t wait to see you!







Today’s Sparkle Video is quite different than what is usually featured, but it serves as a reminder that you’re never too young to join the Sparkle Army.  The Purple Marshmellow Puppies Rock band’s adorable song is called “Sparkle Town” and it’s a fabulous place where kittens run freely, cows wear crowns and best of all, “no one’s sad and no one’s mad”.  Sounds like my kind of place, but I think the lyrics should be updated to include disco balls and laser beams.



Today’s Sparkle Video features Perfume, a trio of super kawaii Japanese girls in brightly colored disco pants, who are laser addicts.  Seriously, I’ve watched a bunch of their videos and they always have lots of lasers so I’m guessing it’s in their show rider and who can blame them?  They make for a marvelous performance, especially when the music leaves a bit to be desired because while I do appreciate their “house-pop” style, my thoughts are “less Pop, more House” (and I mean a lot more House!).  However when it comes to lasers and dancing in ’em, singing in ’em and generally being cute in ’em- they nailed it.


Portable Party Kit

Have you ever had the experience of being somewhere and all of the sudden some great music comes on and you start to dance but alas, something is missing?  That’s right- there’s no disco ball in sight!  I can tell you it’s happened one too many times for my liking so you can image my delight at finding this portable mirror ball set from  The lighting is sold separately, but I’m thinking that bringing along some hand held lasers, Disco Smoke in a Can and an extra large pot of glitter would create a fabulously unstoppable mobile party! It’s especially important to be prepared now that we’ve moved into summer when parties materialize at a moments notice. That’s why I’m putting together my portable party kit right away because I don’t want to be caught off guard when a disco emergency happens and, trust me Soldiers, it will.
