Since I am not a user of MyFace or other social networking systems I am always late in getting certain types of information. But was emailed the news this morning that Peter “Sleazy” Christopherson of Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV, Coil and X-TG has died. He was 55 years old and reportedly left this mortal coil in his sleep. Sleazy was a very enthusiastic fan of my work as a nutty performer, writer with my zine Fertile La Toyah Jackson and Shrimp, the Magazine For Licking & Sucking Bigger and Better Feet and attended my zany clubs throughout the many years Bricktops at the Parlour, G.I.M.P.Unltd.@ Zen Sushi, Club Sucker at the Garage, Café Hag@ Café Kafka and my home gallery Hag@the Villa Rosa. I will miss dearly this talented and completely amazing man who leaves the planet way too soon.
Last night attended the Vietnamese in Berlin Festival at HAU 2 that featured a rare screening of the celebrated feminist film by Trinh T Minh-ha Surname Viet Given Name Nam(1989). This excellent program was curated by film historian Marc Siegel who introduced the movie and moderated a discusion with the artist after the screening of this poetic and moving cineaste treat.
The doll was accompanied by Daniel Hendrickson, the Scandanavian Muslim to the Academic Shtars and Salome Gersch the 17 year old daughter of intermedia actress and director Susanne Sachsse. We were joined by filmmakers Pauline Beaudry and Renate Lorenz, Anna Muelter, Arsenal Empress Stefanie Schulte Strathaus and Chocolate Grinder Film Kollective boys Julian Radlmeier with Ukrainian filmmaking wife Tatiana and Tasty Tim the hunkiest cinematographer in Berlin.
Cute and sexy bubble butt Arsenal projectionist Axel was taking care of the 16 millimeter print so the the screening went off without a hitch. Saturday Nov 27th at HAU 3 the program continues with films by Tran T. Kim-Trang and Forever Bottom boy Nguyen Tan Hoang.
There is a cute pic of the doll by Tania Schnizler that was taken in the Cheese Endique Trifecta, with a short interview in the December issue of Sieggessaulle Magazine in the . . . Meine Stadt section. Pick one up or check it out online.

This incredible news sent to Dr. Robert Summers about the first solo show of the great Canadian artist G.B Jones in Los Angeles this December.
Dear All,
See Below (signatory) and disseminate widely and wildly. GB Jones (a / the feminist-queer artist and aesthetics subject) is having a show in LA (!!!) and she wants me to help spread the news (with others). She is absolutely amazing.
Quick bio: She started the queer 'zine J.D.'s with Bruce LaBruce, which is an important visuality from a queer moment in the 80s-90s -- as too are her brilliantly amazing drawings that queer, feminize, reverse Tom of Finland's drawings: she replaces the male body with hot, butch lesbians. Indeed she has created other queer visualities. And she completed her decade-long (or longer) film "The Lollipop Generation" -- which is absolutely amazing -- and with contains cameos from queer aesthetic subjects such as HRH Vaginal Davis.
Please Spread the word, and I hope to see you THERE.

See Below.As ever,

And this from the famous Love Camel in London who wants to move to Berlin

Oh Doll,

would you kindly circulate this e-mail to the Cheapies & Co. and anyone who could help?Thx and kisses

Help Berlin to adopt the Love Camel

The Love Camel is contemplating (and is very good at it) to move to
Berlina-ta-ta in order to engage in interracial humping with the
beautiful Angela Merkel and needs all your knowledge and wisdom.
The Love Camel needs to find any means to sustain his precious humps
and therefore he needs information about websites, magazines,
newspapers or any other kind of sources that will help the Camel to
bring home his bacon fat. The Camel is looking for money generating
intellectual activities within the Arts, films or that relate to his
multilingual skills, for the Camel, apart for his notorious and divine
Italian and English blabbering, has studied German for 5 years long,
long time ago and it is in the process of refreshing it at a Camel
Any help will be generously rewarded by the Camel, who will let you
stroke his otherworldly humps - just once, obviously.
Forget fucking children in need, help the Love Camel instead.
