This is “Elements Of Vogue” (David DePino’s 1989 Original Mix) – Johnny Dynell feat. David Ian Xtravaganza as interpreted for broadcast by a school of vogeurs including Legendary London Legend, Roy and Britain’s early champion of the form, Les Child. (That’s her shutting down the category in a platinum hair hat.) Front and center and stealing thunder we see the lovely and sorely missed, Fidel Field. A fragile creature we knew too briefly. May she runway in peace. All this madness is circa 1990-ish. Don’t be jealous of their beauty, darling, be jealous of their talent!
Now, in the words of your Master of Ceremonies, David Ian Extravaganza, “I’ll now depart by saying, ‘I love you all for loving me.'”
Do you? “some work” for Marilyn Manson? No. That doesn’t make a lick of sense, but it really IS awful nice of her to be concerned about finding work for other performers. She’s just an honest to goodness nice person.
Weird that she had my number though…very weird. Oh well, I’m not going to worry about it.
Also, super weird that she called me because she’s dead…which really makes this whole thing kinda spooky.. hmmmm.
Does anybody out there have Marilyn Manson’s correct phone number? It must be pretty close to mine I’m guessing….
Wednesday’s Rose is Laurens. Cosmic Disco; it’s as if the whole universe is wearing leather pants and keeping it’s I.D. and a little cash in the pocket under it’s hat. The spirits of the leathermen have flown but their EP’s and extended versions remain. R.I.P. dancers, revelers, vanguards, clones.
“My [singing] style really has no style, because I try to sing each number differently. I’ve always believed that if style takes precedence over the words and music, the audience get’s cheated. It’s like when people see a fine play or movie. They imagine themselves in the leading role. I want them to imagine that they’re singing – not just listening to someone else.” ~Judy Garland
My good friend Rodney Kizziah with The Estate of Richard Bernstein has created an amazing shop featuring the work of Interview Magazine cover artist and airbrush legend, Richard Bernstein. These limited edition prints and movie star masks are genius and to-ta-lly gorgeous. GET IT SASSY!
Ultimate gift alert! Git em. Give em. Git another one for yourself. GO!
“TO DO LIST: Withdraw $40,000.00 for orchid bill – Don’t forget to send Thank-You Kaftan to Dan – Try, really try to invent something entirely new by midnight tonight. “
Gian Franco Rodriguez is all Victor Hugo. This performance is 100% approved by BillyBeyond.com. ☑️
Krysta Rodriguez as Liza is a tour de force, singing in her own voice and dancing as Liza you will be convinced, amazed and most of sucessfully entertained by her magnificent display of talent. To put it “simply,” Ewan McGregor is Halston. He lives. You’ll die.
Amazing with a “Z.”
Rebecca Dayan plays Elsa. There’s only two Peretti’s. Elsa, and Rebecca as Elsa. She’s so gorgeous that she’s hard to see and hear at the same time. Anticipate rewinding. This level of beauty deserves multiple replays. Encore de Dayan!
“Yes, I’m still holding for Dan…hello?… ( muzak sound cue ) Halston… Halston…calling for Daniel Minahan…”
Rory Culkin plays Halston’s bestie, the late Joel Schumacher. Good hair, right? May I just throw out a beauty note here please? The make-up is timely perfection. You can all relax.
I wouldn’t say David “played” Joe Eula. It’s better to say he embodied him. It’s more than a portrayal and it’s spooky-good. (David Pittu is Joe Eula, famed fashion illustrator and Halston’s creative director.)
Gee, I wonder who choreographed all the runway scenes?
That’d be me. There will be turning, running, smiling finales avec complex pivots as well as several split-doubles and yes, the rumours on the runways are true. We do split a triple in episode four. Models, prepare for your masterclass.
Halston, the limited series premieres on Netflix on May 14.
These images were released on what would’ve been Halston’s 89th birthday (he died of AIDS complications at 57 years old, in1990. RIP.)
This is mix number one. I started it five years ago. Yeah. Thanks and gratitude to Duke Todd who came over and ripped all these tracks from the vinyl. I guess everything is online these days, but you know what?…You have to know what to look for, darling. Uh huh. Odd unsung mixes that are better than the A sides. Duke’s got em all…
These vibes are Sound Factory Bar, Redzone, The Sound Factory, Derek at the door, Frankie or David in the booth and everybody else on the floor…like ON the floor. These are the tracks that somebody stole your coat to ( you’re still pretty sure it was a ‘ganza.) KIDDING. Calm down, kids. Hey!…NO TOUCHING. You will be chopped. These are the tracks that I danced to with Kevin Hertzog before I knew him.
I’m starting mix number two so hopefully that should be uploadable by 2025. ….it’s just that I care sooooo much about the music. I have to be SURE it’s right…but I am pressed up inside LOGIC and learning hard. It’s hard. I spent all day today in headphones….and very little else actually. OH!
