My Favorite Barbarella

No contest. Ferrante and Teicher all the way. That opening is supreme gigantic glamor.

Tinkley and bubbling. It’s OK to dance, go ahead and move a little. Let yourself go….

Always Three Piece Down – High Steppin’, Hip Dressin’ Fella – Love Unlimited

High stepper, clean dresser
High stepper, clean dresser

High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You got it together
High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You got it together

High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You got it together
High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You got it together

There’s a guy in the neighborhood
And, oh Lord, if I could
I’d wrap him up and take him home

His machine is always clean
Whenever he’s on the scene
And there’s always a crowd around

Girls watch him like a hawk
Ah-watchin’ his body talk
Oh Lord, they love for him to get down, ooh

Oh, if I could find a way to tell him
I’m what he really needs
Oh, but they say you’re not a lady

If you feel that you

really need someone who

that makes you feel like, ooh
I don’t know what I shall I do?

He’s a high steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You got it together
High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You got it together

He’s always so polite
And never seems uptight
He’s the kind of a man a woman wants around

Hair cut close and neat
Decked down to his feet
And he’s always 3-piece down

I’ve got to find a way to tell him
I’m really all he needs
They say you’ve got to be a lady

You’ve got to play along
You can’t come on strong
I don’t care if it’s wrong
I just want to get it on! (with a)

High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You really got it together
High steppin’, hip dressin’ fella
You really got it together

Christopher Makos – Stand Up Portraits at Ralph Pucci

I’m honored to be included in a show of Christopher Makos’ photos on view now at Ralph Pucci International – 44 West 18 St NY, NY 1001. The series is, “Stand Up Portraits” by Christopher Makos and I’m thinking this was taken about 1993. I remember feeling great about just being asked to pose and to be included. Christopher’s photography has always been pure class so I was inspired to try and portray some.

The outfit was a working sample from the Todd Oldham showroom, came with the beret and was returned quite heavily smudged with derma-color pretty much all over the entire inside. Oops. Is it too late to say, “I’m sorry?” Funny the things you remember… Todd and Tony and Angel had quite a few tricks for cleaning the samples though, I remember a paste of Cascade being one of their secret big guns. Was it Granny who discovered that one? Such are the details that remain among the faded spots that make up, “The Stains of Our Lives.” Wait, if my stains are my story then what about all the ones that came out!?

The shoes were the Blahniks I wore in a few of Todd’s shows – black duchess satin (who said duchess satin?) with gold straps and gold “actual woman height” heels. They were so perfectly balanced, it was hard to know you had them on. I once saw Carrie Donovan wearing the same exact style at 60,000 feet in the air while traveling at mach 2.0. True fact. Pointed with no pinch. Comfortable? You put those on and you say, “What shoe?” “Am I wearing a shoe right now?” “Seriously, look at my foot, am I wearing a shoe on my foot right now?” That’s a shoe. What a shoe.

I borrowed the wig from Sister Dimension.

“A wig and a hat, no questions asked.” – that’s a quote from Teri Toye. I never forgot it. Now you never will either.

My New Judy Gif Just Dropped

Does anybody say “dropped” anymore? It sounds as old as Nicki Minaj. My grand niece used to love her. She loved all that old music. That’s waaaaay back. Shoose.

Aaaainyway, here’s my new Judy Gif. Collect ’em all! I do it for you. I make these for you, my readers. I really do. Apologies to Joey an Lorna Luft – I never knew your father but this is one of my favorite quotes from your Mom’s lost recordings that everybody found sad…(didn’t make me sad though.)  I enjoy listening to them occasionally because it reminds me that if I have a glass of wine there is a good chance I may become drunk, even more bitter, very mean occasionally unintelligible and I will think that a really rotten idea for a show is GREAT idea. The lesson is very clear for me…

Never record yourself.

Nuf said. – And now, another Jaw dropping Judy Gif Drop!

Let her go fellas!

The “Look Around You Show” and The Petticoat 5

Big ups to Bob Renk for sending  us this mind hurting video.

1. This is not a lost French and Saunders sketch.

2. The Petticoat 5 was real.

As far as specialty computers go, the only one I can think of that might be anything would be, “The SeniorMac” by APPLEsauce, because for one thing, I can’t even read these tiny letters on this gigantic screen anymore. Honestly. Not a single word…and I’m still typing. Tippy Tippy tap tap tap.

type to talk. type to blog. type to post. No talking please. Typing only.

I miss pencils.
