Re: Monkey Business Official Video

You don't have to be "intolerant" to not personally like drag queens in music videos. I wouldn't consider myself intolerant at all, however I don't like the aesthetics of it and I agree that there is not much "universal appeal" in it for many other people as well.

I mean, it looks EXACTLY as you would have expected based on the single sleeves but it’s still thrilling.

Act 2, Act 3, Act 2 (best scene), start of Act 3, Act 2, Act 3, Act 2, Act 3 (final scene), Act 2, Act 1 (I think) Thank you ...

Good luck to you! As luck would have it, my two payments to the PSB store went through and were accepted yesterday ...
