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!

Synopsis:
“A billionaire bottoms out; it’s hard out there for a Russian pimp; gang bangers play doctor;
a pyromaniac gets burned; an ice cream man gets iced; a bad actor needs a hand;
a Greek gets his brass handed to him.”

“1000 Ways To Die showcases some of the most outrageously true stories about those who
succumbed to the Grim Reaper in the most unorthodox stories.”

Ramzi Abed’s NOIRLAND: “Behind-The-Scenes” or “Making a Scene”?

Whichever/Whatever the case, one thing is most certain (indeed…indeed!)

My attempt to maneuver around four-letter words is more a rough-hewn Scotch tape-&-staple job of
“edits” than it is some mad profesh, seamless-as-a-pair-of-Cervin Paris Rive Gauche
silk-stockinged affair.   All the same, long overdue this post—yes, though
it is

h e r e ✷ finally ✷ h e r e


Embedded in the rectangle above?

A nine minute, 25 second-long exploration of Hollywood’s illustrious Gemini Manor, a locale as eclectic
as the “subjects” presented in this clip: namely, a coterie of fashion vigilantes filmmaker Ramzi Abed
recruited to populate his latest feature, the “darkly romantic horror ensemble mystery” known as Noirland.

Noirland stars James Duval (Donnie Darko, The Doom Generation) † Rena Riffel (Showgirls, Mulholland
Drive
) † Lorielle New (The Pit & the Pendulum, Grindhouse) † Lenora Claire (The Devil’s Muse,
Toxic Avenger IV
) † Zoetica Ebb (ChinaShop mag; co-founder Coilhouse) La Carmina (CNNGo journalist &
travel TV host) † Yukiro Dravarious (Queen Bitch Supreme, Tokyo underground) † Aldo Vento
(“Delphinium: A Childhood Portrait of Derek Jarman”) † Maxim Eskertin (Bunraku, Violent Blue) † & me,
Clint Catalyst (In The Spotlight,” “Delphinium: A Childhood Portrait of Derek Jarman,” recLAmation)

The film’s killer cast (Velveeta-laden double-entendre too delish to resist, sorry/kthnx) also boasts luminaries
Twink Caplan
(forever chambertombed to mine heart as “Miss Geist” from Amy Heckerling’s Clueless) †
Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger, Horrorween) & a slew of other IMDB repeat-offenders, but I
whittled the preceding list down to the folks featured in this footage
that awaits your ogling

now

Yes, that includes Mr. Duval—even if his appearance is the veritable “Where’s Waldo?” of the bunch.
Moreover, while actor/producer Edwin Santos‘ countenance is absent from such an implicitly
poised-for-viral-domination* collection of digital frames, if it were not for his kind role as our
impromptu DP, this footage would not exist.

Thanks again, Edwin!
—ditto, Ramzi; ditto, Alex—

Three Cheers for Celluloid Premieres & Flaming Queers! (HURRAH!)

 

So, yeah. June?

June’s a busy month ’round the Clintsville.

In addition to peddlin’ word at The Poetry Brothel and collaborating with Paris Sadonis and Zoetica Ebb for a special performance at Salt Lake City’s Dark Arts Festival 2010, this month I’m also honored to be part of two feature-length film premieres.

Up first : we’ve got “just another” genre-hopping, stop-motion animation experiment in contemporary celluloid communications, interspersed with autobiographical super 8 docu-dramitization of writer/director Hilary Goldberg‘s disparate experiences spanning a wasteland of family, palm trees, a violent car salesman and a stint in a mental institution . . .

before fact is eclipsed by the story-line of a fictive post-apocalyptic, “unincorporated community formerly known as Los Angeles” — where riot police, Amy Goodman, and Queer Superheroes run rampant, that is.

Uh-huh. You read that correctly.  And I may or may not very well play the role of a character known as Gaylord Wilshire.  [ Conversely, I may or may not play the role very well! ]

Guess you’ll have to wait till its world premiere at the National Queer Arts Festival 2010 to find out . . .

“Hilary Goldberg’s recLAmation is a feature-length experimental documentary/narrative film shot on Super 8 in which capitalism in contemporary Los Angeles is overthrown, and queer superheroes navigate a possible future. recLAmation illuminates historic connections between private and public systems of oppression, and explores how worldview shifts caused by personal trauma rendered the capitalist paradigm nonsense.

In the first two sections  1) Consumption and Colonization, 2) Collapsepersonal narratives interact with moving images of contemporary Los Angeles, stop motion animation, and sound design. Writer/director Goldberg’s memoir unfolds, offering reflections on time spent with her mother’s violent fiancé and in a mental hospital. Then, a fictional narrative envisions a dream of Los Angeles after it has been liberated from capitalism. Queer superheroes explore a possible future for the city that includes housing for all, truly free markets, the end of prisons, and more. The World Premiere Film Event is accompanied with live narration.”

The Queer Cultural Center

Then, four days later . . . Same city, different festival — and an incomparable project to contrast:

Renown documentarian Christopher Hines is “following fast on the heels of his success last year with The Butch Factor,” by examining not only mannerisms and varying degrees of masculinity among gay men, but also the broad spectrum of ways in which the pursuit for perfection — or perhaps merely a desire to “belong” —  manifests [itself] physically.

For those of you whom I haven’t seen in a while — or ever — look for me in the first 60 seconds of this clip. I’m the tan guy, no shirt, pecs so pumped-up; you might as well call ‘em “mam”s.

See me there? No, not that one.  Definitely not that one, either.  Wait . . . what? You’re kidding, right? I’m that one, there, by the dude wearing a baseball cap!

“Do looks matter? When it comes to the male physique in the gay community, the answer is of course a resounding YES. In this fascinating, thought-provoking documentary, filmmaker Christopher Hines (The Butch Factor, Frameline33) turns his camera on guys of all shapes and sizes to explore how body image affects status among gay men.

Through intimate interviews with men across the United States, including several from the Bay Area, Hines uncovers the very common, often unsettling reality of how many gay men struggle to achieve and maintain a particular image in order to be accepted. As he talks with experts and everyday folks, we hear how body discrimination can lead to feelings of inadequacy, as well as issues around drug abuse and severe eating disorders that transcend sexual orientation.

One especially muscular guy admits that even though he knows it’s superficial, he “feels more respected and accepted” when people compliment his look. Hines explores how these issues trickle into other areas of our modern world by looking at everything from the gay porn industry to a naked yoga class in San Francisco that helps students feel more comfortable with their bodies.

The Adonis Factor deftly balances diverse viewpoints and voices to paint a picture of a complex world where beauty is too often considered skin deep.” — BRENDAN PETERSON
