I WANT TO KILL MY RAPIST

 

From Margaret:

The following songs were written in Atlanta, Los Angeles and on the road, and recorded in Koreatown with Garrison Starr.

 Come with Me

I wrote this song to honor my own past as a sex worker, and to bring love and caring to a profession that is often misunderstood and vilified. It’s what Mary Magdelene would have said to Jesus and vice versa. 

 Ron’s Got a DUI

My favorite love song to all the gay men I have loved and now miss – for a generation of beautiful people we have lost to AIDS – it’s a tribute and an anthem to love and loss.

Moran and Miiri  – I also wrote this song on my own, which is about Korean names and 60s immigration. I did some shows with Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche and his wife’s name is Miiri which is close to my Korean name Moran. This track was also produced in LA by Garrison Starr. 

 Daddy I Miss You

A song for fathers, mine and everyone’s. 

 Georgia Sky

My only true hate song, as complex and thunderous and overwhelming as love can be, so is hate. 

 Fat Pussy

My fat pride anthem, which is a glorious and joyous celebration of my body and all female fatness – a love song to my fat.

 Beautiful in L.A.

I have always wanted to cover this song, by the amazing Garrison Starr, and she helped me to reinvent it with her stellar production. It’s got a real dark swing, bringing in the film noir history of LA into the light. 

Anna Nicole  –

This is a wonderful collaboration with Garrison Starr and it’s a requiem for Anna Nicole Smith that is as beautiful and quirky as she was. It’s my version of Candle in the wind, and about the archetype of someone who is too good for this world that exists in all of us. 

 Gentleman Jim – I wrote this one on my own when I was in Altanta and recorded with Garrison Starr  in Los Angeles. Garrison produced the track. I wanted an old fashioned country track with lap steel and a rise then a descent in the melody. It’s kind of a longer 70s country fantasy song, something you could sing on Hee Haw. 

 Topaz –  is by Edward Herda with my lyrics. I met a young sessions saxophone player in Austin named Topaz. He lived in a gold trailer and he was just perfectly a song in human form. Production again by Garrison Starr in Los Angeles. 

Bonus Tracks:

I Wanna Kill My Rapist  –

I wanted to have a song that expressed cathartic rage, with the purpose of murdering the memory of sexual abuse so it stops hurting the one who remembers. It’s an anthem to healing and the power of anger.

We So Worry –  

I wrote this song with the wonderful artist Bitch for my parents, and they sing on it! They were extremely nervous, but they are also musicians and complete showbiz professionals so of course they did a great job. This was written and recorded in LA at Ben Lee’s studio 

Margaret is set to make several tv appearances including Late Night with Seth Meyers and Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen  on May 18 and The View on May 19.  In addition, you can catch Margaret as special co-host on  “Fashion Police” on E! throughout the 2016 season.

Margaret will also continue to tour with her ever evolving stand-up comedy show throughout 2016 where she typically performs a few songs at the end of her sets.  She will continue to tackle difficult subjects with sensitivity and razor sharp insight. A pioneer amongst women in comedy, Margaret doesn’t take anything for granted. “It’s a wonderful thing to be known as a ‘safe haven’ for people who feel disenfranchised. The audience at my shows don’t necessarily consider themselves traditional comedy fans. I seem to be a secure alternative for people who don’t think they’re being represented in society. They come because my point of view satisfies a lot of what needs to be said out there, and that makes me really proud.”

Bi+: Self-Care and Intersecting Identities Day Long Institute

Take time this year to spend a focused and fulfilling day at the Creating Change Bi+ Institute where our theme will be self-care and intersectional identities. Bisexual, Pansexual, Polysexual, Fluid and Queer (Bi+) organizers are invited to participate. We are all united by being bi+, but we also have many other identities that shape our lived experiences as bi+ people. Identities such as people of color, elders, youth, trans, gender nonconforming, disabled, neurodiverse and many more make up our diverse community. Learn how to nurture and care for yourself and your communities while bringing your whole self into these spaces. Discussions will include Intersectionality, Biphobia and Monosexism, and learning how to develop programs. We will also have open space for attendees to suggest topics and a space for exploring the Bi+ Agenda for the future.
