Re: Tom Murrin AKA Alien Comic

seven ·
Alien Comic was a brand name decades before art marketeers and every aspiring stage denizen wanted to be one.For a long period of time it seemd you could not pick up a local publication with event listings and not find Tom there. That is the mark of a true creative resource, just his ubiquitessness, and it reflected the tremendous output of the fellow, the widespread respect he had built and the eagerness of the audience to want more and more. Also, now, it is like we have to remind...

Yikes! I didn't mean to imply that I PREFERRED Miami to New York, simply that I enjoyed its club scene, and it WAS a lot of fun. There is an element of sleaze and hedonism in the city's nightlife that reminded me of how things used to be here. Even Iggy Pop agrees on that. Of course, I was there during the Winter Music Conference when all the best and brightest DJs and clubgoers from around the world converge on the city, so undoubtedly I experienced the creme de la creme.

Stacey made some interesting observations about crossdressers. Most of the crossdressers I have encountered are men who, by day, rigidly comply with their ""male role." I think that they fetishize their "female' side because to them it is forbidden. I guess, living in my little "bohemian" bubble just places me outside of that. I have no fear of wearing bright colors, giggling, gossiping, or discussing personal issues when I'm not in drag. I don't really acknowledge a "masculine" and a...

But that is what the new military style of business has brought, along with the new constitution of what now has become of architecture, oddly enough, -a decentralization of the urban environment- actually, a de-matrialization as the computer network replaces urban forms of spatial organization. One result has been a refocussing of social violence which has now been tranformed into a contest between an individual's social rank set against their very own highly provisional economic status.

Outlawing porn is a supreme right wing fantasy. Waging a war against it is mainly done for the headline-value.

LOL. BTW the Soldiers and Sailor's Monument, on 89th & Riverside Park, set in a bit of land that was full of cul-de-sac pathways and bushy outcroppings & hideways for outdoor sex activities, was also called "The Wedding Cake" by the queens. It's a smaller, more frilly version of Grant's Tomb, hence its nickname. And yes, these posts are serving as the backbone for one of the chapters in my book I hope.

It's not a coincidence that the Boy Bar staff, the Jackie 60 staff and the staff at Patricia Field was almost identical. And all the talented people behind the scenes doing wigs, costumes, choreography whatever... was (AND STILL IS) all one Downtown family. Blacklips included.
