LOL.

We were all giggling recently when we noticed that the carefully guarded secret about the Suzanne Bartch comeback affair on Valentines day is its at China Club! No wonder they only printed the address on the flier..

As far as Studio 54 goes, this might not be the best forums to refer to studio as "the greatest nightclub that ever was" or whatever you called it blondebuddy. These would probably be the forums celebrating everything that studio 54 WASNT. So it is fine for you to post your party here, but do mind the hype.
I might not go, as I'm usually intimidated by people with such prodigious nuts. However, if I do get up enough, um, courage, to go I'll be the Long Island girl (bad bleach job, pleated leather pants, large-but-not-toned homophobe on my arm) with ten friends. John, if you see me, you should soooo hit on me. I get in for free, right?
Holy shit! I post one inocuous (sp?) plug of my Saturday night party at Studio 54, and whatdya know, 17 responses -- some of them even personal (I promise to remove your gag from you Daddy if you come to my party....) At the risk of sounding sophmoric, this site rocks!

Goblin, Martini's aren't $17, I swear. Beers are $5, well drinks $6, and yea, cosmos etc. range from 8-10. Not cheap in this recession era but you'll live. And hey, I get a bottle -- introduce yourself and I'll fix you some poison.

Helin Rhianon, whatever did you get arrested for? Ah, none of my business. Well I am a lawyer as well (seriously) in case you need a good one smile

Sweetie, we really don't get the B&T crowd so much. Honestly, its a lot of models/actor/music industry types, plus their hangers' on, plus the people who like to say that they saw so-and-so out. Ratio is 70-30 straight-gay approx, with a fair share of T's. Its a pretty scene and people are friendly -- no "how ya doin'" guido's are tolerated. Does that help?

Jizz bucket, I MIGHT let you check your clothes but you've gotta try out for me first. Send me a pic at blondebuddyjohn1@msn.com

Ted & Di -- I'd love for you to scare the crap out of my guests, and I"ll comp you to do it, but put up or shut up. Meaning, email me, I'll leave you a comp at the door, but you'd better wear some outrageous shit or everyone on this board will find out from ME that you're all talk and no play.

last but not least....Girlie, darling, I'd love to meet you. Bringing me 10 people under my list would totally rock my world. I'll be MORE than happy to comp you and some of your friends as well. email me & send a pic so I recognize ya.

That about covers it. For those of you brave enough to go, my list at the door is called Premier List. Ciao
Well done, Blonde John. Well done indeed. Take that negative energy and transform it into something else, just like Mother Sabrina says.

I know that you're trying to raise the roof and make something big happen, and 54 ought to be able to do it, if it isn't too commerche. Don Quixote and the windmills, why not? Pay no mind to the poo-poo's' and give it everything you've got; but dammit, you've gotta even out that 30-70 percentile if you want it to get a proper lift-off.

However, it's worth noting that even with the ten dollar reduction on the premier list, that fierce admission is going to hurt you on the ground support. Why truck it all the way uptown to some old joint that our legends dish when you can go to a fabulous evening out downtown for a fraction of the cost, (if anything)? Show us the big-big balls, buster. I defy you to make the naysayers eat their words...NYC clubland could certainly use it these days.

-Minerva
Speak it Minerva!

Oh yeah...3 freaks to 7 geeks..Those are great odds if you're a geek. Why would anyone except the truelly desperate want to go UPTOWN and be in the minority with a bunch of straight people in a club that saw its hey day about 20 years ago, Ooooohhhhh so cutting edge. I'll pass.

Besides the greedy owners wanted to sell my Studio 54 book if they could buy it from me for less than cost and mark it up about 1000 percent. Nice people.

How about getting a NEW idea...something fresh.

There's suddenly this very bad taste in my mouth.

I dare you to make us all eat our words Blondebuddy.
Hi blondebuddy - well, you certainly can promote a topic here - I haven't seen this much interest in Studio 54 since the Pet Shop Boys had their afterparty there a few years back.

I was never very interested in Studio even in its heyday (there were so many better scenes to obsess over) but would be interested to visit one night just to see what you are doing there. I would appreciate if you'd post a pic in your profile so we or other Motherlovers would know you when we got there and could say hi, or have you pour from your copious private bottle!

If you have any questions feel free to e me.
Blonde Buddy,
I give you alot of credit standing up for youself. (against us devil bitches from hell) Either you are a complete idiot or you are really fierce. Either one is ok by me. I'm with girl on this, I like big balls and you have them!

But please tell me... and I'm being completely serious. What is it that you do? Are these your parties? Do you come up with the concepts? Are there concepts? Do you design the invites? Do you have invites? Do you book performers? Do you have performances? Decor? Themes?

You see, almost everyone in this topic has done (or is doing) almost all of these things. (Some of us, before you were born) That's why we have trouble understanding things like "premire guest lists". What do these parties offer? And please don't say the thrill of being in the same room with The Hilton Sisters or one of the Ronsons. Take a look at Bobby (Miller's) famous photo book on the real Studio 54, those were parties! (no matter what Chi Chi says though I admit the people were hideous there and I'll admit this is one big run-on sentence) They were incredible, over the top theme parties. (I don't see Paris Hilton riding in on a horse). The flowers alone in those days rivaled the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens.

So please explain to me this guest list thing. Do you get money for every sucker that comes in on your name? Is it your party? What do you do? What do we get if we go? Them?

YES!
The people who ADVERTISE on Mothernyc.com, Queenmother.tv & The Motherboards (Like CHEZ ES SAADA, THROB RECORDS, CBGB, PATRICIA FIELD, GLOBAL 33, WESTEND RECORDS etc.) are ALL checked out for coolness.

NO!
We can't possibly check out every person who POSTS on The Motherboards. That's what the discussions are about. If something sucks, believe me, we will all know about it. And if something is great...
well whole careers have been made on these boards.
I was pleasantly surprised by the Motherboard turnout last night at Studio. For those who came it was truly a blast, for those who didn't you can always play catch-up next week, same blonde time, same blonde channel. Email me at blondebuddyjohn1@msn.com or call 212 330 8975 if ye are interested.

I emailed personal responses to those recent replies to keep from airing more jiz-stained laundry in public. Hope to see you this Valentine's Day at Spa/Ultra, comps to EVERYONE by asking for The Premier List.

Johnny, possessor of the most wanted balls on this site
Hey John, I applaud your understanding of these boards as a fun forum for us girls to talk trash and be bitchy yet not take ourselves too seriously (except of course when it comes to *). While we run 54 through the mud (mudd), it's only because we like to hang out at places like the Cubby Hole, Crazy Nannies, and Denim & Diamonds. No one wants to dissuade someone from trying to promote nighttime activities in this city. Carry on!

Oh, and can I get 6 comps for this Saturday?
John,
We girls are always up for a party. I'll check out Studio 54. I met this hot bartender at Meow Mix and I'm thinking about asking her out. This would be a great place for me to take her. I hope she doesn't have a girlfriend already.

So put me down, Pat plus Jessica Rabbit for Staurday.

I am sure that your party is an interesting one. The question for myself and I believe, my fellow MBers is this an event that WE will find interesting. We are all used to, in some degree or another a certain level of quality. I define quality as:

Fashion/Costumery- not the type that you might find this month in Elle vogue or their assorted clones but the fashion that hasn't been invented yet. During my time at Mother, (I use this as an example because I did not have the pleasure of attending S. 54 in it's heyday) I was witness and in some small way party to an ever changing creative blitz of the senses. The creativity that was channeled through the space by all of the participants guests and acts in the ever-changing spectacle of fashion genesis that was Mother.

The Crowd- I have become spoiled and that has perhaps caused me to become more brattish as the time goes by. I prefer, no, NEED there to be an equally interesting crowd. The crowd must satisfy this basic test, Approachability. Armed with my witty repartee I approach someone in the crowd flinging forth such never before uttered ice breakers as......

Hello
Hi I am Ted this is Diane
Is this the line for the Bathroom
Nice ______ did you make that

if the crowd can at all be considered decent in my eyes the response must be more than a grunt. Even a well placed epithet is considered OK. As long as it is creative.

On to my next point. I have been to many parties where I was the entertainment. Not paid entertainment but the entertainment nonetheless. This is the kind of party whereby my friends and I might be sitting at a table dressed (in my opinion) relatively tame (or not) and invariably someone who is either: the guest of the guest of the promoter, sub-promoter, sub-fill-in-DJ's boy/girlfriend, bartender/barback coatcheck boy/girl. Decides to approach me/us their comments range from the absurd to the inane to the plain frightening. A friend once had one of these very people lock himself in a bathroom with her in an attempt to flatter her with his charm.

Now, having been such entertainment, I prefer to know, KNOW with utter confidence that the club/party space is safe. Not safe from snipes of the verbal variety but safe from harm and harassment.

The price of admission.- the all important LIST I do prefer to be on the list. I consider it a great compliment. I like to feel that someone appreciates the fact that I am there. That being said my first stop after the coat check is to find the promoter who put me on the list and thank them for that courtesy. I then invariably offer to buy that person a drink. If it is their club I try to buy others a drink through the night or help out in other ways. I enjoy helping in my own small way to achieving a better party.

Another point:
Many of the readership here are sometimes between jobs or just in a low spot. At these times it is imperative that they be granted access to their social support group. Now, this group is often inside the club. That $20 is often the entire budget for entertainment for the night/weekend/week. I am not begrudging any promoter his/her due It is a tough job and an even tougher living. All promoters should make a buck. For more on that topic see other threads on the boards. Just keep in mind the above.

"you'd better wear some outrageous shit or everyone on this board will find out from ME"

From that statement I know that we haven't met or that you haven�t seen me at any number of other wonderful events listed on these boards by equally hard working promoters.

"you're all talk and no play"

perhaps.


T


ps leave my comp at the door I will be there one of these nights. Ted n Di - that's 2 and I'll buy you a drink when I see you.
I tire of this repartee about Studio 54 and it's supposed fabulousness. I can only imagine that the only people there who might classify as " cool, cutting edge, innovative, unusual-in-a-amazing-way, stylish, or hip" would be the downtown crowd that hate going above 14th street for anything. It is almost a given that those of us who can be considered legendary wouldn't be caught dead staring at the gasping mouths and faces of the B&T or "fashion" crowd that I am sure you will find at Studio. Why beat a dead horse. Studio 54 had it's hey-day in 1977-1980. It's over. There have already been bone pickers before this group trying to ride to finacial freedom on the reputation of this once glorious club. Why don't you young kids( if you're really clever and smart) start something new and never done before.
Oh..that might be hard to do huh?

This is merely the opinion of this one moderator here at the motherboards and in no way reflects to perspective of the founders , creators and moderators here at The Motherboards.

I speak solely for myself. But I did write the book on Studio 54.
ah, its so much nicer to come home after a long night of partying and promoting to see (mostly) kind words on this board. After all, it is officially 3:27 a.m. on Valentine's day, and I am alone with only Edith & Archie Bunker to entertain me. One of my guilty pleasures, especially with the whacked sleeping patterns I have, is Nick @ Nite.

Just thought y'all should know that. I digress...

Pat (curious to see this Jessica Rabbit friend of yours), Sheril V., Nancy I (quite a hike from Newton Mass, eh?), Messy Bonnie (lets give 'em something to talk about baaaaaby), Ted 'n Di -- you all will be comped for Studio on Saturday, as promised by moi. Just send me a quick email por favor at premierlist@msn.com so I know to take you seriously, and I'll take care of the comps I promised.

Ted n Di, let me buy YOU -- both smile -- a drink for such a thoughtful email.

There are, in fact, some people who *I'd* say are cutting-edge fashion there in a non-Elle mag way, but maybe our tastes are different. Its an attractive crowd, an interesting mix....perhaps not *as* mixed as the free Spa party that Premier List is promoting tonight (shameless plug, sorry) but good nonetheless. People tend to be friendly and approachable, and I can absolutely assure you that you'll be free of harassment.

The money issue....I understand completely where you're coming form on that. I think in those terms as well, and I think MB users are more $$$ savy than many on my crowd.

Comparatively, 54 is reasonable. Studio is $15 on my list (not $20), plus I offer to comp anyone that brings at least 3 people with them. So figure a group of 4 is spending $11 each. Plus, we have an open bar from 10-11...you can make back your $11 right there in rapid fashion.

OK girls, time to sleep. Get back to me MBers, and look forward to a wild night with you on Saturday.

Johnny
