Worn alone or layered, Tiffany Keys are innately chic, keepers of a mysterious message for the keyholder to know and the curious to imagine.
The sentence above from the press release just sums it up. Who writes these things? I think I could very well fit in that writing team.
Tiffany Keys are available in Sterling Silver, Gold, Platinum and White Gold. Buy them right hurrrr.
Mmmmh, I would love to get some White Gold nick nacks. Or a couple of them in different materials. I need something mysterious & curious dangling around my neck.
Tiffany & Co. announces a new jewelry collection that holds the key to personal style and reveals the renowned jeweler”™s great legacy.
The new Tiffany Keys Collection is inspired by keys from the Tiffany & Co. Archives. The work of skilled goldsmiths and silversmiths, these exquisitely crafted vintage keys unlocked jewelry and keepsake boxes, albums, diaries and steamer trunks, as well as private clubs and country manors. (source)
And this is all Sabs fault. Thanks.
In a move to attract even more cute nerds, Mary wore the Lost numbers as a necklace to last nights Hotnütz party. My dress is by the wonderful PG, who was dearly missed.
Gartina took the stage super late but wasted no time to get naked. A semi NSFW picture is after the jump. For full sausage action, you have to check out flickr.
I kind of watched Walküre on the plane and took some screen caps. Ok, I didn’t watch it. However, I still fantasize about the movie being a great Hollywood b-movie, like Showgirls or something. I guess it isn’t and to keep the fantasy alive, I only took the pictures from the first 15 minutes. I could still watch it.
On last week’s vacation, I sent the palm tree picture below to my friend Sabs (aka die Hausfrau-Vagabundin) and she replied with the sea anemone shot.
Don’t you love nasty nature?
Wendy & Lisa gave a candid interview to out.com. They’re talking about their relationship, recording with Grace Jones, their time with Prince in The Revolution and recording an album with Trevor Horn in the 90ties which did not get released, partly because of his homophobic remarks.
I love how they describe Prince as a “fancy lesbian” and getting more upset phone calls from him everytime they share some purple memories.
The ladies new album White Flags of Winter Chimneys is available from Wendy & Lisa”™s web site.
Did you first think Prince was gay?
Lisa: He was little and kinda prissy and everything. But he”™s so not gay.
Wendy: He”™s a girl, for sure, but he”™s not gay. He looked at me like a gay woman would look at another woman.
Lisa: Totally. He”™s like a fancy lesbian.
Wendy: I remember being at that “œSexuality” video shoot and him on stage with that little black jacket and that tie thing around his neck and his black pants with white buttons on the side. And we looked at each other for the first time and I thought, “œOh, I could so fall in love with that girl easy.” It doesn”™t matter what sexuality, gender you are. You”™re in the room with him and he gives you that look and you”™re like, “œOkay, I”™m done. It”™s over.” He”™s Casanova. He”™s Valentino.
Wendy: We had an amazing month with [Jones] in our home writing “œWilliams”™ Blood,” becoming friends, and being bizarre divas. We had to pick her up when she woke up in the morning, and the morning to her was like 6 PM.
Lisa: She gets in the back seat of the car and of course we have to stop to buy bottles of champagne. She wanted to play the bass. She kind of couldn”™t, but she could groove like nobody”™s business on one note. She started to sing and I wish I could”™ve seen my own face. I was like —
Wendy and Lisa in near unison: Oh my God, it”™s Nightclubbing! [Jones”™s classic 1981 disco-punk album with the hit “œPull Up to the Bumper”]
I’m a little bit sad about it, ahhhh, I guess this is what Michael Jackson wanted: Not to auction off the Neverland estate. But I so wanted the Pinocchio statuette.
All the items are still on display in L.A. until April 25.
And I have just received the auction catalogue last week. Such a bummer. Below are a couple of pictures from the five catalogue box set. However, this is only the tip of the iceberg. Literally, you can pick any page from the books and you want to buy it. It is insane!
Maybe this doll was the inspiration for Little Susie?

Mary sent me a note about the wonderful lipgloss Huge Lips Skinny Hips that has been cooked up by Purple Lab founder Karen Robinovitz.
The gloss helps to pump up your tires and makes you believe you just ate. Perfect. Vitamin B3 will plump your lips upstairs and some mysterious African plant extract will drop a few pounds downstairs (I’m going to drink it):
The product contains Hoodia Gordonii extract, which is derived from the plant found in South Africa and Namibia. The ingredient is claimed to be a natural appetite-suppressant, which is said to work by mimicking the effects of glucose on the brain, tricking it into thinking you’ve just eaten.
HLSH is available in six sheer shades, with names including Kitty Poledancer & No Panty Lines.
The celebrations to Barbie’s 50th birthday are never ending. Did they save the best for the last? Finally, we can dress Barbie with our favourite designer cloths.
WWD reports on an exhibition at Galeries Lafayette, Paris where Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gaultier and Sonia Rykiel are among around 50 designers to give the doll something nice to wear.
The picture above is of course the Margiela Barbie dressed in a “flesh-tone face mask and bodysuit, a pair of black fishnet tights and a shaggy coat crafted from glossy blonde wigs.”
Gentleman Reg’s video to his dancy new single “We’re in a Thunderstorm” has just been released. The song is going to stick in your head, believe me.
I’m so glad G-Man is stepping out of the indie rock corner & giving us some fresh air. The clip features lots of Toronto Queen West peoples including the wonderful Fay Slift aka Ladybear Extraordinaire.
And in case you were wondering why Mary and Proddy are not in the video: we were to drunk to show up, totally confused we headed to Queen East, looking for the shooting location. Doh.
Apart from the songs below, I love to listen to anything Kid Cudi. Hopefully he is coming out with his debut album soon, although Cudi has recently announced and withdrawn, his retirement. In general, I do think it is a great idea to announce the retirement before the first album hits the streets.
There is a new interview with Helmut Berger at faz.net. Below is just the beginning of the very entertaining conversation. After the first two or three questions, the Visconti actor asks the journalist if he knows dingleberries, using the Austrian slang wintercherries. And it just gets better from there.
Mr. Berger acts in a soon to be released low budget film, Blutsfreundschaft.
Sie haben ein aufregendes Leben hinter sich . . .
HB: Jetzt beginnt die Gehirnoperation.
Ruhm, Rausch, Ekstase . . .
Über Ihren Drogenkonsum haben Sie in Ihrer Autobiographie ausführlich berichtet.
HB: Jetzt fang mal an!
Der Ruhm ist verblasst, dem Rausch folgte Ernüchterung. Worüber können Sie sich heute noch freuen?
HB: Ich finde, dass jeder Tag eine Freude bringen kann. Man weiß es nicht vorher. Wenn ich jetzt sage, ich freue mich auf Kirschen, kann es sein, dass ich morgen, wenn ich Kirschen sehe, lieber Pfirsiche mag.
Kennen Sie Winterkirschen?
HB: Die kann man nicht essen. Man kann auch kein Kompott daraus machen. (“Winterkirschen” laut Österreichischem Wörterbuch: “Kotstücke an den Arschhaaren”) Aber darüber wollen wir nicht reden. Mach weiter!
After the success of RuPaul’s Drag Race (best reality TV show ever), the lady is back with a new album, Champion, available now on the interwebs.
Below is some behind the scenes footage for the video to my favourite song on the album, Tranny Chaser. It’s like the trannies of Poak Chops. Can’t wait for the full clip.
Just because you want me… that don’t make you gay
Every time you watch me… that don’t make you gay
Do you wanna be me… that don’t make you gay
Or do you wanna f@#& me… that don’t make you gay
Mary and myself have been asked to come up with a project for Pride Toronto. It looks like we’re going to provide nasty entertainment in the afternoon of Saturday, June 27. Today, we’ve sent in our biography:
Mary Messhausen and produzentin were found wandering hand-in-hand
through the woods by a travelling circus troupe at the age of 4.
Raised by the Bearded Lady, these girls learned their tricks by
hustling and bustling from the outskirts of St. John’s to the inner
harbour of Victoria.
Mary and produzentin, 19 and 20 respectively, currently reside in
And on the same evening, it is PrideNuts at The Beaver. Can you spell D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R ?
