It was the most lezzie Hotnuts, yet. Thank you all for coming out, it was tons of fun.
Lex’s performance was so incredible, a lot of party people got their suckle on. One of my dreams came true: djing with a drag king, Kiki rocked the house. Also, it was my first time in pants at Hotnuts, thanks to a generous present I got from Cologne, kisses to M.&C. Karen was the hottest chick with a dick & she brought a bag of Hotnuts from Mexico.
Mary, we missed you.
More pictures after the jump (slightly NSFW).
As if the snow in Toronto wasn’t enough, I’m in Sault Ste. Marie until Friday. I’ve learned it’s somewhere in northern Ontario. I guess to make sure that everyone knows how to pronounce “Sault”, the city is also called Soo by them peoples.
I’ve put a couple of pictures on flickr.
I really don’t know what took me so long to get Millie Jackson’s album E.S.P. (Extra Sexual Persuasion). Blame it on sluggish postal service.
Anyway, the vinyl arrived at my doorstep this week and it hasn’t left the turntable yet. The stand out track on the album is Slow Tongue, a slow burning number with sultry lyrics and a hypnotic guitar hook. That’s my kind of nastiness. I loves me some Millie.
You bring me to the rim
I can’t take it anymore
Working your way down
Another E.S.P. highlight is Sexercise: “I do my workout late at night, the bedroom is my gym”. Expect a couple of Millie posts in the coming weeks. In case you haven’t noticed, Millie has the best album covers.
Last night, Mary and I went to our favourite gay strip club in town (there is only one). One of the strippers sat with us for a while. His name was Flame (I think it’s his real name). He made fun of me because I’m a lap dance virgin (still are). Suddenly, he fell off the chair and we had the last laugh.
Mary was really into one stripper who looked like a CK model. When he starred back at Mary he was basically eye-raping her. A couple of shots later, Mary said: “I want to give him my PIN number!”. I knew it was time for us to leave.
Like a mantra against my hangover, on repeat today: Get Myself Together (Hercules HercHouse Mix) by Chaz Jankel. Soon to be released on Tirk including a re-edit by Todd Terje. Get the song at the great mp3 blog These Rocks Pop. They have Mariah mixes, too.

I’ve been doing some Madonna research lately (more on that later) and came across this short clip of Madonna performing Dress You Up at Keith Haring’s Party of Life in May 1984 at the Paradise Garage, almost 6 months before the Like A Virgin album was released.
By Keith Haring (source):
“In the spring of 1984, it’s time for my birthday, and I stage what I call my Party of Life event. I want to make this into quite a grand affair. The fact is, I’m now making a certain amount of money and I feel a certain guilt about it, and I want to share it with my friends… you know, sharing the wealth! So I plan this big party, which is for my birthday, but not on my birthday.
I ask Madonna if she could sing at the party and she agrees. As a matter of fact, she had been to my studio just days earlier to play me some cuts from her new album ‘Like A Virgin.’, at which time hadn’t come out yet. I immediately liked “Dress You Up” and “Like a Virgin”, and we decide she’ll sing these two songs at the party. While we’re hearing these songs, I do a painting on Madonna’s leather jacket which she wears to the party. Madonna decides that she wants to sing these two songs on a brass bed covered with frilly material and strewn with white roses.
I decide to hold the party at Paradise Garage, because it continues to be my clubhouse and the coolest club in New York. Although only open weekends, I persuade the owner to let me hire the club out on a Wednesday night. I now ask LAII ( and myself and other friends of Keith ) to help me decorate the place. We make these huge cotton banners, which we spray paint in fluorescent colors. We hang these around the club. We also hang fluorescent streamers everywhere, and in another room we erect these huge fluorescent pillars and vases with flowers in them. We also hang some of my huge vinyl tarps so that the event also turns into a big exhibition.” (Read the full text)
