Chi Chi, thank you so much for the response. I'm going to miss Susanne's party. Oh well. I guess I'll just have to go to VanDam in the next week or two. I hope you guys have a wonderful holiday, what ever you end up doing. Love, Judy

Going to be a great theme for 2011! I think Jon Stiers sent you a line about possibly performing - he rocks. Looking forward to see him entrancing the crowd with his voice and piano skills. Can we get Brook Alyson's butt here this year?

Just wanted to thank Bill Brewster for sending us this note about the passing of Francis Grasso, 52, who is generally regarded as the first modern DJ. His club The Sanctuary helped define late-sixties(!) gay disco and he pioneered the whole shamanistic tradition of DJs taking the crowd on a trip.. If you don't know Bill, he wrote the amazing "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life:The History of the Disc Jockey" which is filled with amazing stories including Francis Grasso's.

Alot of you Jackie 60 regulars might remember my friend Jane (from the BBC). She was the one in the DJ Booth always with some piece of Latino eyecandy or some exotic Arabian knight. She would usually be the one reaping the benefits of late-night "Party Naked". I recently found out that she keeps a journal of her (s)exploits. I read one chapter about Redline Richie that was incredible. She also has one on Flowrider. I've asked her to start posting here. You will drool! One of her obsessions...

You will gag Minerva but I was there when that picture was taken. It was at the Victoria's Secret fashion show. I was DJing. Before the show I went out into the lobby to call my wife. I looked next to me and at the very next phone was a 3 1/2 foot Gary Coleman in a blonde wig! I was trying to tell Chi Chi quietly, "You won't believe this..." Even better than the wig though were the shoes. They were these really ugly old lady pumps with about a 2 inch heel. The best thing was that they were...

This subject is always so polarizing, and we've tried to steer clear of it ...

Widely publicized and with a NYMag article to come out Holly died last week. She had been my art dealer from 1974-1980.

yes Chi Chi. - I also knew Page vaguely from working on a Blacklips show with Antony years ago. She sang "River of Sorrow".

Z+S, you describe JoJo's dolls as though they are magical (which it seems they may well be)... BTW, JoJo did not write us specifically requesting to join the forum like the rest of our ArtMakers have. He just started sending his doll images to us to post. He did not even send his log-in name after several requests. As I was so "moved" by his dolls that I wanted to share them with all of you (and because the forum exists to meet as many of the diverse communicative needs artists have) I asked...

A bit of explanation... Mark Twain is said to have once wrote: "When the end of the world comes, I want to be in Cincinnati because it's always 20 years behind the times." This still holds true. We were asked to host a night at a local gay club here in Cincinnati about a year after Zazoo was "born." we agreed, but only on our terms... What did this mean? Well... 1. Good music. 2. No crappy Drag Queens badly lipsyching to 3 year-old songs. 3. "Freaks" got in free They reluctantly agreed to...
