Alright, I realize this blog tends to be a bit Zo-centric . . . though not without sufficient cause! Not only is The Intergalactic Naturalist, Prodigal Cosmonomad and Mercury Vagabond a mega-talented creature of massive multi-media creative outpourings; moreover, not only is she one of the most stead-fast, stand-up, all-around superlative friends one could hope to have . . . but also, that beauty! The solo shot in which she’s serving Military Chic? Seriously : Can. Not. Get over!

On a similar tip : Steady gagging over the radness of a certain Editor-In-Chief, who featured me giving face two issues prior; then surprised me with the back cover slot, current ish! [So much adoration and admiration, Jessica! Truly . . . Truly : It’s an honor and a privilege ♥]

The Hangers also express mad gratitude to actor / musician / promoter and international nightclub impresario Mario Diaz for the benevolent usage of his estate, Casa de la Decadencia.

Incidentally, the full-frontal, effing incandescent career of none other than Mssr. Deez-The-Deed Diaz was immortalized on celluloid earlier this year, via the release of Club King — a feature-length documentary directed by Jon Bush, in which the solar system of this evening star is chronicled in all its sordid, dazzling glory. Check it!

The Photography of Kasia Bielska

To Start:
Seven Images from the Ben Trovato Blog,
in which Bielska’s editorial “Three Colors — RED” appears

“Three Colors – RED is the story of a creature that transcends to another dimension by means of an unreal space and color. The photos have been inspired by an enclosed space – the interiors of the Park Inn hotel in Cracow, Poland. I had some graphic visions in my mind prior to the shooting, a shape forming from two colors – white and black. As soon as I saw the interiors, however, I knew it was going to be a story of three colors.”

Are You A Victim Of The Modern Witch-hunt?

[a quick check-list]:

How have relations with your peers been as of late?
Have any of your friends seemed distant, unavailable?  Perhaps a bit stand off-ish?
Or even worse: has anyone begun to treat you with suspicion?  Spoken to you with a distrusting tone?
Conducted a rash & volatile act upon your arrival—say, for example, the frenetic strumming of an
acoustic guitar to the tune of a [quote] “power ballad”?  &—if dare say that be the case—was
aforementioned ::SHUDDER:: stadium serenade coupled with an egregiously off-key
rendition of  lyrics such as “Don’t Stop Believin'”?
(Stop.  Believing.  What?!)

Quite frankly, do you feel as if your interests incite an impending sense of moral panic?

Are you persecuted…                                                                             for your taste in music?

In †hee Name Ov DELTΔ DELTΔ DELTΔ‘s Sacred †ri-Force

TRUST:  We understand.

Some people have a genuine aversion to Witch House.

S’all there is to it.

So what’s a budding hex-head to do?

For such matters, we consult…

The Gen Art Alumni Fashion Fete

in Los Angeles : March 16, 2010

Gen Art, a national organization dedicated to promoting and supporting excellence among emerging talent, joined forces with 17 of the non-profit’s “Fresh Faces In Fashion” alumni for an event not only celebrating the Los Angeles fashion community as a whole, but also specifically acknowledging the contributions of the designers who have been featured through the Gen Art design platform.

Each of the designers was accompanied by a model to showcase a signature look from their forthcoming collections.

I, on the other treacherously manicured claw, attended

Scrying. Divination. Skin. Magick. Mad Style. Ten Inchers. † THESE NEW PURITANS †

Hidden, the sophomore release by British “art-rockers” These New Puritans, is now available Stateside. You know, as in: domestically. It’s a lot of things, this aural assault : a mélange of the cinematic and the classical, the intimate and the evasive, the post-modern and the profound. However, one adjective that isn’t applicable for what’s quickly become my favorite release of the year? Sophomoric.

Spot-check this Most Correct clip for the album’s single “We Want War,” directed by Daniel Askill:

Created by Jordan Askill, I’m a bit in awe of that Battle Cat Head Piece . . .

Oh! And for those prone to the “Covet / Love It” when it comes to collectibles, These New Puritans have rarities to offer their disciples :

[ A deluxe version of the CD, complete with 80 pg. hardback book? Drool-worthy. ]

Full Disclosure: While I loathe band groupies [ Seriously : Try screaming at an art opening or academic conference — that’s subversive…whereas offering to give roadies head for a laminate back-stage? Such a seventies’ cliché; I’m yawning ], I have an insatiable affinity for the Limited-Edition / Signed-and-Numbered / Gatefold / Box Set / 3″ CD / 10″ EP / Colored Vinyl / Picture Disc of It All.

Alright, then. Moving right along…

[ Photo source : Last.fm ]

The video for “Elvis,” a single from the band’s premiere album Beat Pyramid, is also Most God, Indeed.

† “We’re all waiting / Or Forever Made / And if there is a God, then please take me up…” †

Consider the gents on the handsome side?  You’re not alone. Twin brothers Jack [ vocals ] and George Barnett [ drums ] have been ogled by the fashion set since the band’s inception in 2005. Before they’d even released a full-length album, designer Hedi Slimane commissioned the “band” [ translation: George, whom Slimane also featured on the catwalk ] to record a soundtrack for his final collection at Dior Homme, the “Hiver” 2007 runway show. This was Barnett’s first professional modeling gig, though the demand for pale, angular creatures from the xy set has kept him busy: campaigns for Lanvin and Ray-Ban; editorials in Dazed & Confused, Zoo, Arena Homme +, 10, GQ, Another Man, and Vogue Hommes Japan — and runway work for dozens of designers, including Burberry Fall/Winter 10/11, Prada, YSL, Alexander McQueen, Gareth Pugh, Dries van Noten, Veronique Branquinho, Galliano, and Gucci.

However, insofar as far as my own taste goes? Not that you asked, but I’m backin’ Jack over George. And speaking of back, let’s do exactly THAT

Jared Gold Reveals Halloween Costume to Clint Catalyst Pt 1

There’s some unfortunate ‘angles’ of me in this one (umm, yeah HI: Fatty McFatterson much?), but I’m determined to get the F over myself and showcase the details of Jared’s inimitable genius.


What I requested? (Translation = “what [the customer] ordered?”)

Bloodthirsty barber, circa ’99…
1899, that is.

Not “Sweeny Todd” specific, as

a) I can’t sing,

b) Look like a dungheap compared to Johnny Depp (since most folks associate the Sweenster with J.D. due to the most recent ‘take’ on Mr. Todd),


c) Wouldn’t want to be confined to a barber shop.

I mean, REALLY.

I’m uber-fagatronic in this footage– but hey, just another trait I’ve gotta ‘own,’ maing.

Besides, what’s key here is the CLOTHING…and accoutrements. // DIG IT

Tarina Tarantino’s Official Barbie Release Party

“Worst Dressed” Lists Are Go!

This news is a few days late (frickin’ deadlines…), but July 22, 2008 marks the official date for when I was “BUSTED!” (Busted Daily Dot Com) for my attire at Tarina Tarantino’s official Barbie doll release party. I’m a sicko; I know– but seriously: it fills my heart with glee:

Busteddaily,Clint Catalyst,Maryse,WWE diva,WWE diva Maryse

A friend and I have joked that making the “Worst Dressed List” in one of those shit-rags is a lifetime goal—especially since the attire is almost always by my favorite designers—and while the site’s not on glossy pages in a grocery store check-out line, it’s one step closer…

Plus I’m with Maryse, Queen Bitch Supreme of the WWE—who’ss donning full-on retro Barbie look via a make-over by quite likely my FAVORITE designer, Jared Gold.

My pic comes up as #2 of 7… and who else made the list?

margaret cho,comedian,out and about

Margaret Cho

Tarina Tarantino
and Tarina Tarantino,

Two of my favorite people on the planet.


Obviously, the site uses the term “Busted!” with a multitude of meanings, as complimentary things are written about both of them in separate areas.

All I have is my name credited, so I’m opting for “BUSTED!” in the worst sense of the word.

O.K., not very worst… but if you get the notion of something being ‘so bad it’s good,’ then I know you know what I mean.

And umm, I need to take it easy on the “naw mean,”
duly noted.

For party pics that aren’t among those on WireImage et al, have fun scroll scroll scrolling below!

The event itself was back on the 17th, but I’ve been smothered beneath a succession of work– hence the tardiness.

Otherwise, here are my “Thank God! I’m Validated!” swiped-and-watermarked:
