Join Me Next Wednesday for a Night of ALCHEMY

On Wednesday the 26th, you’re invited to the beautiful Pali House for an unholy fusion of three essential elements: The Verbal, The Visual, & The Auditory. Flyer by Courtney Riot I will be reading a short autobiographical piece about some of my amusing experiences with the Other Side. I’m especially excited to be appearing alongside Jillian Lauren, the best-selling author of Some Girls: My Life in a Harem, who’ll be reading as well. We’ve just listed the event on FB, …

Mmmf 003 – Mission Control Warming Hors d’œuvres

On Saturday, roughly six months after we moved in, Ales and I had a little rocket-warming party to celebrate what’s finally beginning to feel like home. We don’t have people over too often, so I decided to feed our friends in addition the customary alcoholic offerings. Being nowhere near the expert level necessary to hold a full on dinner party for thirty people, hors d’œuvres seemed the most reasonable plan of action. Let me preface the rest by saying that, …

Blush Response 017: Dying Sections of Very Long Hair

The crimson-locked siren below is my friend, Stephanie Inagaki. Stephanie is an artist and head designer of coveted jewelry label, Miyu Decay. Stephanie has very, very, very long hair. A few weeks ago she called me up and asked if I could dye it red. All of it. I laughed, hung up, caught my breath and called back, saying that I’ll dye some of it, but that’s the best I can offer. So we got to work and took a …

Photo Flurry 052: Skingraft at LAFW

Still busy, however! Last week, Clint Catalyst and I jumped into a rented Escalade, zoomed downtown, haphazardly strapped Clint into a chain harness [these things are unrelated], and attended what was likely LA Fashion Week’s best night: the Ashton Michael, Skingraft, and Anthony Franco triple threat show. Coverage here, a few pictures below, and more after the jump. Do enjoy! The upstairs lobby of the gorgeous LA Stock Exchange was transformed into a glowing bar, serving up popcorn, tiny cupcakes, …

T-shirts, T-shirts, TEE-SHIRTS

Mein droogs! Coilhouse Issue 06 hustle, among other hustles, is upon us, as you may have guessed by the radio silence. Mer, Nadya and I are  working around the clock on the magazine and some awesome new Coil-merch, too, which we’ll be revealing very soon. Meanwhile, I thought I’d interrupt this interruption to quickly let you know about some hawtt T-shirt action. Molly Crabapple’s second round of designs for Dirtee Hollywood is coming soon, and includes a shirt with a …

Photo Flurry 045 – San Francisco with Ginny, August 2010

Finally, a moment to wade through the hundreds of San Francisco photos. I managed to get this round down to under 100, but it must stop here. It’s been over an hour! I’ve hand-picked a few favorites for the post, and the rest are under the jump in a gallery. To navigate, click an image and then use the bar at the bottom of the window. To start off, here is a photo strip from a booth at the Musee …

Photo Flurry 042 – Disneyland Adventurefuns!

When you get together with out-of-town friends, it best be memorable. This is precisely why I decided to join my usually remote comrades Gala, Nubby, Amy, Kevin, and Danielle at Disneyland. It had been years since my previous visit, so I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I knew there would be rides and crowds, but would I still have fun after the initial shock of colors and people wore off? I took a billion photos [we all did, naturally] …

Photo Flurry 041 – Quick Robbie Update! Mustache!

Today is a big fat Ikea day, starting in about an hour so this is just a quick update to say that a kind young lady heard about Robbie, the chow/border collie mix, through Biorequiem, and has now met and expressed interest in adopting him. If all goes well, Robbie will be moving by the end of the week. Thank you again to everyone who has offered suggestions and helped get the word out! I’ll update again if there’s any …

Photo Flurry 029 – Making a New Home, Pt. 1

Realistically, I shouldn’t even be typing right now, considering how tired I am, but I GOTTA. You see, Relocation 2010 is well underway now, with the soon-to-be-former Shadow Gallery about 2/3rds packed, and looking like this: It’s still difficult to wrap my mind around it, but after today’s labors I’m even more ready and PUMPED to move on. I’ve packed about twelve massive boxes so far, we’ve settled on eleven colors after picking from the below samples, and the ordination …

Photo Flurry 021- Yums, Presents, Nurses, Sudden Rant

I’m going to be taking a little internet vacation next week, which should explain the numerous updates this week. As much of a vacation as possible to take in the midst of magazine production, of course. This flurry has a few odds and ends from the past week or two, but first! A mini-rant. I just watched James Ivory’s and Kazuo Ishiguro’s “The White Countess” – a film about displacement as much as a film about a Russian countess in …
