Me Like DIS

DIS magazine launched today. It’s onläne. It’s fashion. It’s art. It’s DIS.

Basically, I spent my whole day discovering their pages (pun intended). They first feature that caught my attention, was Multitasking. So many arms, so much to do. Check out the pictures and multiply your arms. Then, I found the CGI fashion story by Ryan Trecartin.

I got more and more disoriented, lost in the DIS pages.

Finally, I clicked on A Sunday With Susan. OMG, I screamed in excitement and wet myself (downstairs). The fashion shoot features Rumi Missabu (of The Cockettes) and Donna Personna (amongst others) in Susan Cianciolo dresses. Eons ago, I’ve written a quick blurb about Susan. Here are just 3 pictures from DIS magazine, be sure to check the whole story including a Q&A at the end:

I had never heard of Donna Personna before. But after watching her youtube promo reel, Join The Donna Party, I’m a fan forever. She also performs at one of my favourite bars EVER, Aunt Charlies Lounge in San Francisco. Here are some mini pics I took at ACL in June 2004: one and two. I have to go back soon. Like NOEWWW.

Also, Ryan Trecartin will be in Toronto next week for an artist talk on Tuesday and an opening at The Powerplant on Thursday.
