So far I really love everything I’ve heard. It’s a smart mix of all kinds of dance music.You listen. You like. Next week Billy make guest appearance. Make fun.

Rose Laurens – Night Sky EP

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 Style Has No Style

“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

Desmond Is Lady Kier Is Amazing

Loving this insanity. Desmond got the looks…clock it… even Good Beat! This makes me happy. There is hope after all.

10, 10, 10, 10, 9 (so shady), 10 10 – This category is shut down – Give it to the child. Give the child the trophy. This is the future, people. ¡FUTURA!

Boyculture Polaroid_HALSTON_103_Unit_02046RC2_sign

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 Peretti in Halston (2021)

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!

Joel Schumacher as played by Rory Culkin in Halston (2021)

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.

David Pittu plays Joe Eula in Halston (2021)

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.)

DREW DROEGE

I think I’ve seen enough not to miss any more Drew Droege or Mitch Silpa tweets, ever. Thanks to Squirrel 1 for the tip on this nut.

A DEFMIX Tribute Mix Featuring Early ’90s House

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!

Remember dancing??? I wish I could.

Jean Laporte 101

Jean Laporte was among the first to offer an alternative to mass perfumery by founding L’Artisan Parfumeur in 1976. He made it famous, then left it in an attempt to revive the true art of perfumery. In 1988, Jean-Francois Laporte founded the house of Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier, inspired by the great French perfumers of the 17th and 18th century. Perfumes and perfumed gloves is what he sold in his boutique on Rue D’Opera, Paris. He used a secret antique process that permanently embedded an enduring fragrance into the fine skins which he made his gloves from. Amazing. The house of Jean Laporte is owned now by Jean-Paul Millet Lage, who was taught by Jean Laporte. After leaving his second successful project, Jean Laporte continued his way futher to the roots of perfumery. He founded Le Jardin du Parfumeur in Burgundy (according to Denyse Beaulieu).

Jean Laporte couldn’t abide the compromises between art and comercial perfume-making. He narrowed the meaning of niche perfumery until he came to its very source- a blooming garden. Jean Laporte, as a true artist, made his way without advertizing…ever! His talent didn’t need the attention of the masses, but being so bright, he always enjoyed it. Thanks to him, we now enjoy great L’Artisan Parfumeur creations, the most celebrated of them being Mure et Musc, popularized in New York City by “the Elsa Maxwell of the East Village,” the late John Badum.

Jean Laporte. The finest fragrances available, quite simply.
