For those who don't now, and care, my litle rottweiler got hold of a rather large fishing lure and managed to get a quite fashionable piercing. He is fine.

For those that could care less, thanks for your patience.

A futurist night like Click + Drag is interested in all manner of
modernist movements, and tonight Click examines one of the
prettiest and most hard-edged - the 20th century explosion of
British Pop. This revolution (which began in the fifties with
artists like RICHARD HAMILTON) went on to infuse the fashion and
arts to a degree that made Britain the center of youth culture
worldwide by the mid-Sixties. It also produced some of the most
memorable futurist fashion statements ever, from the Space Age
couture of PACO RABANNE (metal dresses and helmets, plastic disk
necklaces and chainmail) to PIERRE CARDIN's unisex jumpsuits and
space travel themes.

The night is named for THIS IS TOMORROW, a 1956 exhibition
organized by Hamilton and the Independent Group, which helped put
this work on the map. NY futurist pin-up THEO performs music of
the future with cyberdelic dancers VIVA AND JAIKO and the
extremely visual themes are explored in video imagery by ROB
ROTH. Sixties-era chainmail is reimagined in fashion
installations by chainmail design house BLAZE NEW YORK. DJs SAMMY
JO and LOAD REZENHAND spin space-age throbbing breakbeat,
synthpop and electropunk.

As Click + Drag presents this ninth monthly "experiment", we'd
like to thank our audience for responding so well to our new
venue and our vision of larger-scale monthly editions. We promise
you lots more of the truly new on second Thursdays to come.

Wear plastic, mod, chainmail, 1964 meets 2001 (Paco Rabanne,
Pierre Cardin,) space travel looks, cyberslut, fetish, gothic,
post-apocolyptic, sexy robot, glam nerd, leather, vinyl, rubber,
genderhacking, imaginative head-to-toe black or full period
costume.

Absolutely no mundane clothing, business suits, athletic wear, or
fur, ever.

Discuss Click + Drag and all things cyber-fetish in the Fetish

With the recent death of JOEY RAMONE soon after the 25th birthday of
PUNK, the ragged, homegrown sensibility has been in the
air more than usual these days, which is always a good thing,
even when caused by a very sad event. Click + Drag co-conspirators
KITTY BOOTS and ROB ROTH were also touched by this floodwave of
Zeitgeist, but chose to interpret it in the punkiest of fetishes,
rope bondage. Asked to produce a cover for BOUND AND GAGGED
MAGAZINE, the "Bible of Rope Bondage", the pair invented brightly
colored rope bondage clothing and poses that re-energize
seventies punk cliches like the Union Jack motif.

Examples of this bondage punk revival will abound on "punk go-go
slaves" all night including covermodel JORGE SIR MEXALOT, and the
Drum and Fetish performance by SNAPDRAGON (drummer for the
fabulous ANTONY AND THE JOHNSONS) will provide a blast of hard
electronic DIY to rattle the safety pins and spikes. DJs LOAD
REZENHAND and SAMMY JO also promise "jackin'dark-core-
intergalactic-elektro-freqbeats" with a touch of POLY STYRENE and
JOEY, of course!

Strict Dress Code: NY Punk vs. London Punk, rope, safety pins,
Union Jacks, Ramones Tshirts and tonight only -shredded jeans!
Also cyberslut, fetish, gothic, post-apocolyptic, sexy robot,
glam nerd, leather, vinyl, rubber, genderhacking, imaginative
head-to-toe black or full period costume.

Absolutely no mundane clothing, business suits, athletic wear, or
fur, ever.

I know I always say that but last night was amazing! I finally got my old friend Angel (I don't mean my "old" friend Angel, and I don't mean my old "friend" Angel) I mean my friend Angel from "back in the day" to come to Click. I have been telling him for years about how great the energy and music were and how fantastic the people looked. Last night he was totally blown away. He said he didn't think there was anything left in New York like this anymore. It reminded him of all the clubs of our youth (not that long ago by the way, no matter what Nancy Isla might say). He got so turned on by the crowd (and the Radical Faeries' bondage/spanking shows) he hopped on his motercycle and took off into the night to get into trouble. Now that's a good party!
Just to add my special memories of the night-everyone was so dressed up for the theme- and of course i get to see all the outfits on their way in.
stand out moments were-

the guy with the 3ft by 4ft placard which said "trannies for the ramones"-who was po-going with it

SCOTT EWALT'S t shirt -"blondie is a band"

ROSE'S home-made union jack dress with bustle

CHRIS FLAM'S t shirt- "fuck art lets kill"

ALDO'S t shirt-"no fun"

the cute new boy in the wahol "bananna" t-shirt

DEBBIE looking gorgeous in a long white frock

Z from the radical faries asking if i would style his arsehole-i guess my styling career has really taken off!!!


and finally our invite cover boy JORGE SIR MEXALOT'S spread in BOUND AND GAGGED magazine-which people were grabbing 2 or 3 copies of.

Thanks to everyone who made it such a great nite!

Yes the rumour is that Genocide, has been seeing a very tall pretty boy!!!-so glamnerd you better sharpen your spurs.Genocide is a domination girl- so you will have a fight on your hands.

Genocide does work in a rodeo bar and Barbie Q is hosting the event HAPPY JACK HO-DOWN! @ CB's (see posting)-maybe we need a showdown.Are you a cowboy baby!!!

During the past weeks, while recovering from my injury, I have become a very skilled channel surfer, though usually at night- and one of the many channels I have peeked at is the Discovery channel (though it rarely holds my attention- dinosaurs, mummies, the titanic...yawn). However, the other night, they had a rather fascinating documentary on the physiology of beauty (survival of the prettiest). Then it occurred to me- whatever happened to the piece that was filmed at Click last year? I believe the focus was nightlife, fetishists, freaks, along those lines. Many of the Click regulars were interviewed, and I recall being very succinct and frank about being a gender anomaly, the tranny chase, and the men who fancy us "special" girls, all the while cocktail and cigarette in hand.

I did a search on their website and nothing came up under nightlife, nightclubs, click & drag, or even NYC...
Well, I remember that too, but of course these things are always a gamble. My prediction (since I have worked on MANY promo's for the Discovery channel) is that the subject matter was too much for them, the idea always sounds interesting on paper, but then when they see the footage the "powers" that be freak out. But I will try to look into it and see what happened. I think you would be a perfect subject on the Discovery channel Randella. If I was a bitchy queen I would allude to some old dinosaur reference, but alas I'm just a nice clean-cut boy.

By the way, I saw an incredible show on the pyramids. I can�t remember if it was the Learning Channel or Discovery or History etc. However it was really mind blowing. Check it out if you have a chance.
I will look for the show on the pyramids, and I am not a bitchy queen either (a bit catty at times, but not really bitchy)- because if we're talking pyramids- Rob, both you and I were not around for the building of them, but I am sure certain names do come to mind that were around as witnesses to those marvels of creation so many centuries ago...Joey Arias, perhaps? Daddy, any comment?
And Hattie,
Remember the Babylonians? How tacky! They ruined everything. I mean the Sumerians were cool but Babylonians... please!
Things have never really been the same since the Jews left. You just can't get good slaves anymore. I mean the Greeks are ok, very clean, but the Jews were great. I hear that there are lots of them on Long Island. Does anyone know?
I don't remember the Babylonians or Sumerians -my memory only goes back to the 1980s-hence the next click!

The Click + Drag dynamic duo of ROB ROTH and KITTY BOOTS take
their inspiration this month from Malcolm McLaren's 1992 dance
hit and the style cult that it shaped, as dreamed to life by
VIVIENNE WESTWOOD at WORLD'S END. The shake-it-up mix of South
Bronx scratching and traditional square dance sounds ultra-right
again, just as MacLaren's hybrid melting pots of culture
foreshadowed the digital "borrowing" of this age. In Click's
re-inventive way, Westwood's iconic BUFFALO GIRL becomes a
BUFFALO BOY (who is actually a 21st century androgynous blend of
both, in the manner of visage star ROBIE, the invite covermodel
who presents his ELECTRO CABARET tonight.)

The sylist BOOTS, a gifted blender of periods and ideas in a
free-associative way, also pays homage to the cartoonish side of
BUFFALO by referencing the exaggerations of late-Eighties Club
Kid style - lunchpails, mixed-up hip-hop and everlast references,
sky-high platforms. This particular mix - World's End and Club
Kid, was influential in the twin NY and London scenes that fueled
and inspired BOOTS when she first emerged here. Club Kid eminence
and 2001 clubmaker LARRY TEE will perform with BADD INC. at 1:00
A.M. along with the lovely TOBELL VON CARTIER and IVE. Expect
some Buffalo in the soundtrack courtesy of DJs LOAD REZENHAND,
SAMMY JO and KATYA CASIO.

I WILL BE BACKING MY BIKE INTO THE DOOR (YELLING WHITE TRASH) AT FUN-After i will claim my breaks did not work!
Just a quick update on tomorrow- i have finally found the Malcolm McClaren "DUCK ROCK" video-we will be screening it all night on the four big screens-it features the "BUFFALO GALS" song.

Hope to see you there Kitty
So there I was upstairs at Click, and this really beautiful boy wearing a skirt starts talking to me like he knows me. Well, I don't recognize him at all, but I know that voice!!! And it's a really beautiful voice, too.

Well, this gorgeous being tries to convince me that he's Sammy Jo, and just got a haircut (right) the usual alien abduction he'll be fine we're just borowing his voice and everything will be fine in the morning sort of thing. I've seen it before.

Anyway, I like the work they do. Send more!!!
Props to our Samantha Jo for pulling out Tracey Thorn and spinning it at the Buffalo Gals-themed
Click. Everything But the Girl is one of my favorite bands, and I so RARELY hear them played out! Sammy Jo deserves a sweet pinch in the booty for that bit of grandstanding .. perhaps I'll give him one on Sunday at Cheez Whiz (with Justin looking on approvingly no doubt).
Did everyone catch my buddy Ron M. go-go-ing in his immense platforms? He was wearing Underoos and for special effect created a handbag out of a cut-up Drano can in an inspired reference to Michael Alig. Sick, sick, sick ... not to mention downright scary. Loved it!
Well my night was saved by the fabulous Yolanda and her cutie pie friend Cypher. Miss Yolanda gave Kitty and I a ride home in her beat up old car, was it a pinto? I can?t remember but I know one of the windows was made out of tape. We all hopped in with our bags and heals and wigs etc. and off we went until we started running out of gas (petrol, as Kitty calls it). Emergency stop in Gasateria on Housten. Just watching the leopard clad Yolanda get out of the car and swing her enormous breasts around to open the gas tank while the attendants eyes bugged out to an unbelievable size made me feel like I was 16 again . Thanks Yolanda!!! And thank you to panty diaper also for making the evening just that much more absurd........

A hectic spring/summer schedule rife with snafu has prevented me from attending the last few Clicks, and I have missed it, from assembling theme-based outfits to mingling with all the creative, wonderful nightcrawlers that make this party as great as it has been. The good new is that I plan a triumphant return for the August clone edition. See you all there.
I know chi chi won't want a big fuss but rob and myself are celebrating her birthday at midnite aug 9th, hope you all can come!! Please bring your clone?!

This month, Click celebrates the birthday of contributing editrix and co-founder EMPRESS CHI CHI VALENTI with a celebration of Human Cloning - a passion of hers of late. Always the ardent
futurist, Valenti's certainly not alone: Many animal cloners and experts are certain that a human has already been cloned in secret somewhere in the world, while believers by the hundreds
are already readying their skin patches for storage, following the advice of New York City's own HUMAN CLONING FOUNDATION. Can the real thing (once removed) be far behind?

While we wait, at Click + Drag's celebration, in an unlimited futureworld of duplicates, replicants, clones and copies, future-fetishwear god GARO SPARO presents "Glamour Times Two", a
cloning-inspired fashion show, at 1 A.M. Genetically altered beauty AMANDA LEPORE will sing Happy Birthday to the Empress , while go-go Metal Twins preen in costumes by Click discovery KIRSTINE (a new metalwear couturier.)

DJs LOAD REZENHAND and SAMMY JO will spin "jackin'dark-core- intergalactic-elektro-freqbeats" as ROB ROTH's endless editions
of covermodel LEPORE play on into infinity on the multiple video screens that give the night its visual signature.

Strict Dress Code: Your DNA, test tubes, lab coats, adult baby, twins, cyberslut, fetish, gothic, post-apocolyptic, sexy robot,

More on Human Cloning at http://www.humancloning.org/
This is all too perfect! of course it would be announced this week , mabey we should invite Panos Zavos and Severino Antinori to Click . They could hold a forum on the subject. I'm sure most of the click audience would be happy to volunteer! I'm not sure who I would like to see cloned though. Hummmm... I imagine Madonna would be the first on line...she could continue her career for the next few centuries. oh god what a thought.
Who knew Chi Chi would be so on target with her cloning theme!!Or maybe George Lucas was at the last click in drag.I don't think the new star wars has Ewan McGregor in it =-so who cares?

E! Online news
"Star Wars" Episode II Gets a Name

Well, it could've been worse--like, say, Episode II--Attack of the 50-Foot Jar Jar.
Instead, Lucasfilm has announced that the next installment in director George Lucas' sci-fi saga will be titled (drum roll, please) Star Wars: Episode II--Attack of the Clones.
Oh, and if anyone's interested, yours truly is modeling in Garo Sparo's show at tonight's Click. At least I won't have to buy a new gown to wear, which is just as well .... my gold card is maxed.
I even got those Italian scientists on the news to clone me for this event. Now the question is what will I do with him after the show?
Let's hear it for radical faerie birthday cake...mmm, yummy! Two Flawless Sabrina clones plus the original, eye-popping Garo fashions, Rose serving full Chi Chi effect, Sammyjo playing both Opus III It's a Fine Day and B-52s circa summer 1987, and lots of special cigarettes in the air. And I loved Brandon's Love is a Battlefield ensemble. Aren't summer birthday parties fun? Happy birthay, Empress!

And the most interesting of visages happened later in the night while Chi Chi and I were chatting. This young couple sat next to her on the banquette, a multi-pierced pretty boy in kilt & beret and his mohawked/mulletted tattooed very boyish girlfriend started what seemed like dry humping for several moments oblivious of us (or was it a purposeful display?), and then briefly to us spoke in some accent (italian or french, we never did figure out), but it was a certainly on a little side show...

And maybe I will keep that cane, since I was told it looked rather ghetto fabulous...
George Lucas should have come to click last night. He would have found much inspiration for the next Star Wars installment. Clones everywhere. One of those magic nights where you feel like your on another planet! Thanks to Chandler (Fire Boy) for baking the "special" birthday cake!(only a true friend would bake on the hottest day of the year!)Genocide with her baby, Sabrina's (three of them) for the lovely serenade, and of course Garo Sparo, amazing show! It made me so happy. Watch the Clicknyc.com site for jpg postings in the near future..Long Live the Empress!
