At long last, my dear Trixie Whitley whom I made my second video with called “A Thousand Thieves” for NOWNESS last year releases her first full length album TODAY!
Stay tuned for my second video collaboration with Trixie this February!
See her live this Thursday at Le Poisson Rouge at 9PM… but hurry and get your tickets. It’s almost sold out!

The latest from my boy Cody Critcheloe’s visionary band SSION. The single for “luuvbazaar” was filmed many months ago in Brooklyn with a sea of people I adore… see if you can spot me half naked and dancing like a porn star.
As always…. Bravo Cody!

Dutch artist Berndnaut Smilde, with exacting precision, has created clouds indoors. If only for enough time to create an image recording the painterly cumulus clouds forever. I am in love with these images.

Over the past month I have been wrangling a few friends to perform a concert for my birthday on November 19th. When Sandy came crashing through I decided to switch gears and turn the birthday concert into a benefit. Last week, I headed out to the Rockaways with the ’RSR” Renegade Sandy Relief to lend a hand. There is much work ahead for the Rockaways and the RSR needs our help to ensure they can continue their relief efforts in the coming months.
It is my goal to raise a minimum of $10K on Monday, November 19th for the RSR with YOUR help!
Please join me for a star studded line up at the Top of the Standard with host MX. JUSTIN VIVIAN BOND, musical direction by THOMAS BARTLETT and performances by New York’s finest, including none other than SANDRA BERNHARD!
If you can not attend, donations in any amount are welcome and can be made HERE.
