The K-Tizzle Sizzle - Everybody Loves A Clown

Overcoming Your Fears With K-Tizzle
by Katie Langley

At the beginning of my team meeting each week we share a personal fact. My colleagues now know that I can sing the ‘heads, shoulders, knees and toes’ song in German and that I have a fear of flying.
The fears week was funny. Well, it was when I found out that a team member (let’s call her Miranda) has a fear of clowns. It all stems from a traumatic experience at Expo from which she’s never fully recovered. And the fear isn’t restricted to clowns. It extends to people dressing up as other things. A lunch time outing last week became quite confronting when she came face-to-face with a latest promotional gag for the new cupcake parlour across the road – a person dressed as a giant cupcake doing jazz hands. AHHH!

Miranda, you told me your fear and swore that I would use it for good and not evil which is why I’m going to help you. It’s time we confront your fear head on. Today it’s all about musicians who love face paint and masks.

Let’s ease into the proceedings with Lady Gaga’s video for ‘Just Dance’. There’s just one teeny tiny little painted lightning bolt on her face. Nothing scary. Right, Miranda?

In Ke$ha’s video for ‘Blow’ we see lots of people dressed as unicorns. Sure, there’s the potential of eye loss should shit get crazy with a unicorn. But they're so mystical. And magical. Don’t be afraid, Miranda.

KISS are the ultimate face paint crusaders. You can deal with this, Miranda; it’s only a bit of paint. Although I can’t explain away Gene Simmon’s wankery.

It’s time to take it up a notch. It’s time for GWAR who are all about science fiction/horror film inspired costumes. Sweet dreams, Miranda.

Oh, what’s that Miranda, you want more? Well here, have some Slipknot…

This is the big one, Miranda. This is what I’ve been building you up to. I’m not going to lie. There are clowns. Two big, fat, rapping clowns. Go to your ‘happy place’ and then click on this Insane Clown Posse video…

You’re welcome, Miranda. You’re welcome.
