Had a perfect luncheon with Dr. Jennifer Doyle of UC Riverside who has been on a fellowship to London for the past year, but is now in Berlin with her hot young Turkish lover Senol Senturk. Senol has worked with Cheap for many years collaborating on our live performances and installations, and he is also part of bbooks kollective in Kreuzberg. I am so happy that two amazing and incredibly talented, gifted people have found each other and are enjoying a hot buttered romance. Dr. Doyle just finished a new book that will certainly be explosive. Just as powerful as her last tome, "Sex Objects, and the Dialectics of Desire" Which has been an insanely popular crossover hit in a million different circles. Dr. Doyle continues to sock it to the tired establishment in the lame, tame art world and academy. You go girl!!!!!
Spent a delightful evening with my former Club Sucker partner Frank Rodriguez and his super studly ginger beau Patrick. Frank took me out to din din and drinks at the Prinz Konnect and Wolf, bear daddy bar. Frank told me that his best friend from Vassar College Julian Nitzberg had a year old love affair with German and Hollywood actress Franka Potenta of Run Lola Run fame. Franka was so smitten with Julian she was flying him back and forth from LA to Berlin, and wanted to have his babies. He even attended a posh event with Fraulein Potenta where he got to meet Queen Elizabeth of England and her husband Prince Phillip who did some male bonding with Julian over a shared love for bawdy jokes and ribald humour. Jullian has had a minor success with a light opera he wrote the libretto for called The Beastly Bombing. I had introduced Julian to a number of eligible women over the years including British live artist Marissa Carnesky who also went gaga for him. I like Julian but he is selfish, egotistical and bratty. Those being some of his better qualities.
Went to see the French musical film "Chanson d´Amour directed by Christophe Honore´featuring the ethereal beauty of Louis Garrel with lucsious Ludivine Sagnier and Chiara Mastroianni, the daughter of Catherine Denueve and Marcello Mastroianni. Ms. Mastroianni looks more like her auntie Francoise Dorleac then her famous mother or father. I loved the film. Musicals are very difficult to make in our modern era, but this film had a sweet Jacque Demy quality to it that made me swoon.

Lovely dinner at Boris Lauser´s elegant penthouse apartment at Moritzplatz. Boris is a raw foods chef from Rome who is pals with Travis Jeppeson and his beau Mario. Travis just came back from Prague, where he will be returning every month to supervise the whorgyiastic sex action between 30 Euroboys Gone Wild, a video series featuring some of the humpiest eastern European lads that money can rent.
Earlier in the afternoon, Daniel Hendrickson the Scandanavian Muslim, Kjohnny Blue and i went to the Arsenal for a meeting with Empress Stefanie Schulte Strathaus and Nanna Heidenreich to go over the last minute details of the big Sunscreens Summer Experimental Film Festival special Rising Stars, Falling Stars Presentation on Saturday. Got to check out the pretty rooftop garden which will make the evening particularly sparkling and magical. Was also introduced to DAAD Fellowship guest curator from England Ian White. Miss Stefanie also presented me with a copy of the gorgeous handcrafted art book that she edited called The Primal Scream, which features the films and text of Christine Noll Brinckmann.
Frank Rodriguez is in town with his ginger lover Patrick, and so is Professor Jennifer Doyle and filmmaker Marie Losier. This should be one sensational week.
