Finally got a chance to check out the website for legendary Hilary Bean the former model and actress turned jewelry designer to the shtars. I’ve known Ms. Bean since the early 1980s and she is one glamorous LA woman. She has a brand new website so please check it out below and buy her very unique designs.
Had breakfast with Uli Ziemons the sexiest man in all of Europe who just came back from a working trip in the States where he has been doing extensive research for a project all about the illustrious underground filmmaker Gorgeous George Kuchar. Uli’s travels took him from Chicago where he endured one of their backbreaking heat waves, meeting meeting cult luminaries John Waters and Cynthia Plaster Caster and also having a heavy metal parking lot week-end. In San Francisco he got to spend quality time interviewing for hours the legendary filmmakers filmmaker Mr. George Kuchar in his lair in the Mission District of San Francisco where he shares a flat with his filmmaker brother Mike Kuchar, Uli learned fascinating tidbits like how Wieland Speck of the Berlinale’s Panorama Section is featured in a George Kuchar film called How to Choose a Wife and is also in Weather Diary 4. I am so happy to hear that Uli got to hang out with one of my fav San Fran residents Mr. Larry Bob Roberts of Holy Tit Clamps who is the webmaster of this very site you are reading from.Uli brought back for the Doll a copy of the album Afreeka by the British Black Jazz, Soul, Funk fusion band from the 1970s Demon Fuzz.
In the evening young Australian scholar Damon Young treated Lady Vagimule to Mexican food and Margaritas at her fav Kreuzberg eatery Santa Maria. We were joined by Daniel Hendrickson the Jewish Muslim and voice of Communism, NYU performance studies professor Tavia Nyongo and Dwight a happy-go-lucky black queen who now lives in LA and is an executive with Vidal Sassoon who took a sex holiday in Berlin.
In the morning I met up with my heavenly papa Ron Athey at Le Femme, the Turkish boite on Kott Busserdamm. We were joined by Susanne Sachsse, the fearless leader of art kollective CHEAP, and the three of us had a joyous time catching up on every little thing concerning our famous rad tat father figure. Ron has been in explosive work mode lately with his hit automatic writing project Gifts of the Spirit that premiered in Manchester and will be traveling to Birmingham’s Fierce Festival and also Rio De Janiero. Ron came to Berlin for some much needed relaxation with his Brit gal pal Lee Adams & Company from the Fetisch Club Kaos in London. They were staying in an old Stassi high rise on Karl Marx Allee that featured the oddest décor. The only way to describe it is skank homo forlorn. The two bedroom flat was filled with plushy stuff animals, fake flowers & plants including a plastic hanging garden of Babylon in the toilet, Coca Cola tchtokees, piss eleganza racoco furniture all in the illest shades of salmon chintz and powder blue.The elderly queen who rents out the flat to gay tourists also has a low rent porn collection of the saddest looking twink DVDs. Only in Berlin kids.
Ron and Lee turned me on to this amazing internet site called You won’t be sorry that you checked it out. We had a sweet time talking about our old teenage punk days and Lee told me how he use to drink Mad Dog 2020 and Snakebite which is lager and cider plus Dark Snakebite which features a dash of black currant. I walked the boys to the S-Bahn where they caught their train to Schonefeld Airport and I had to scram to KreuzKoelln for more Commie Biggie pre-production meetings and brainstorming with Susi, Nazli, kJohnny Blue and Daniel Hendrickson.
Ron also told me that when I perform my piece Memory Island at Xperimental 11 in Barcelona this fall I have to hang out with the legendary first lady of harsh Ms. Lydia Lunch and the lesbian feminist performance kollective Porno Terrismo(Porno Terrorism) who love to barge in on gay male sex spaces and take over intervention style forcing the homos to deal with them as sexual beings. More women need to invade gay sex clubs, backrooms and cellars and liven them up a bit as they are quite dull.
Received a sweet email today from cute young blondine boy Jason Byrne who is living in Afrika. Jason use to be the neighbor of Dr. Jennifer Doyle when she lived on Edgecliffe in Silverlake. He was one of my Cal Arts Students and has a large white penis and very big surfer boy feet.
Dear all,

I haven't talked to many of you in a long long time. Hope everyone is doing well. I'm still in Tanzania and everything is good here.
Over the weekend, I was in Southern Sudan to witness the country's independence. I made a film within the celebration, which included two actors. One actor plays the "North" and one actor plays the "South." The history of the two countries will be captured through the telling of the characters experiences.
Here's some images from the film. The collective energy and excitement among the Southern Sudanese was something I never thought could exist anywhere. I hope I captured something of this feeling on film.
More meetings with Susi and Nazli for Commie Biggie. This project is so exciting and every moment of it just takes on new lovely turns and twists. Of course working with Suzi and Nazli has been a dream they are so energetic and come up with so many fab ideas that I am in constant awe. I wish all my projects could be this rewarding.

Had breakfast with Daniel Hendrickson the Jewish Muslim at the Turkish boite Vadi on Karl Marx Strasse Friday morning before we headed to kJohnny Blue’s recording studio in Kreuzkoelln to work on Commie Biggie with Susi Su and Nazli. Daniel and I recorded bill&coo sounds for our big love scene in the piece where my character makes mincemeat of Communisms tiny sphincter.

O and I received this email from Berlin artist Liz Rosenfeld:
Dear Friends,

As many of you know, I have been spending the last year and half working on my film- triptych, " Surface Tension," which looks at moments in the lives of three- female artists ( Anita Berber, Hannah Höch, and Leni Riefenstahl) who lived during the Weimar Period in Berlin. With the donations and help of my amazing international and local community of friends and colleagues, I have successfully been able to complete Frida & Anita ( already screened at The Tate Modern, The British Film Institute, and Moviemento in Berlin) and most recently have completed the pre- production and shooting for the second film in this series HÖCH (currently in the editing process.) I want to thank you all for your previous support for the first two films in the series.

We are slated to film the third and final piece in the series, Die Neue Frau, a constructed " uncovered" real of Third Reich filmmaker Leni Riefenstahl's home movies revealing an ambiguous relationship she may or may not have had with Eva Braun, Hitler's mistress. Die Neue Frau takes place in 1933 ( the last official year of The Weimar Republic) and tracks the transition of Berlin from decadence into fascism.

We are slated to film in early August, but must meet our funding goal in order to be able to afford the film stock and post- production costs. I would be extremely grateful if you could take a moment to read more about this project, and consider our fundraising campaign:
Sending Love and Many Wishes from Berlin,
Liz --
O and the baby diaper of the Hidden Cameras that gorgeous male creature known the world over as Joel Gibb just posted his new video he directed ala the old Hollywood film musical helmer Stanley Donen. Check it out here: and let me know what you think.
This little emug from love camel, Andrea Novarin in London:
Oh Doll, the camel had the most horrible experience of his humped life. I went to a kinky night called Collared that used to be fine a few months ago. But this time, I felt like Rutger Hauer in Blade Runner or Marlon Brando in Apocalypse Now when they mention they have witnessed the horror, the horrors. There were no more than 20 people. Amongst them: a young chubby queen in a harness dancing horribly to Lady Gaga, an old skinny thing with a hairy back and a raven colored toupee; an even older obese black man in a white g string probably bought from Lidl for 99 pence; an octogenarian clone of Peter Murphy from Bauhaus with spikey hair and the smell of hairspray coming from him that was permeating the entire club. It was like a freak show, in the worst possible way. It was revulsion therapy! I managed to stay 25 minutes just to finish my drink but wanted to leave after 5!!!!! I almost wanted to be amongst all the Nosferatus and Nosferitas of Berlin instead!! Kissy
Big peniled writer Travis Jeppeson also emailed me that he is in Beijing on a fellowship with German artist Christian Schoeler till August. I had contacted Travis to see if he could book a performer from Austin Texas at Pork@ Ficken 3000 as a favour to designer Rick Owens. Rick Owens and his ladylove and muse Michele Lamy have brought the charms of the lowrent dive bar The Spotlight to Paris, and have recreated the famed Hollywood Blvd hole-in-the-wall for the Gallic conneisseur. Glen Meadmore just did a show at The Spotlight-Paris, and its actually a fab idea as the city of light is in much need of new nightlife additives.
