NEUES AUS MODE,KUNST
So sorry its taken me such a long time to write something on the old blogina, but I have been extremely busy with putting up my HAG exhibit, keeping late nite installing hours that have left me physically drained. Add to that creepy diarrhea and you have the perfect recipe for a protracted Vagimule doll.
Fridays opening at Participant Inc. was a smash success with SRO crowds gathering in the darkened environs to see HAG-small, contemporary, haggard which was bathed in a Josephine Baker style pink light. My bread sculptures Dirty Mariah and Three Pronged Ryan Gossling were hung just before the doors opened and were greatly appreciated by the throng who could still smell their whyte dough aroma. A calvalcade of shtars filled out every surface with a receiving line in the back for la Diva who was holding court.

This morning at 9am was taken to breakfast at Veselkas by Mark Morgan Perez where we were joined by Patty Powers and Glenn Belverio. After breaky we all sat in the sun at Gramercy Park to gossip and chittle chat. The night before Tavia Nyongo treated the doll to din din at Hecho in Dumbo at 354 Bowery. The contemporary Mexican food was delicious, and the service and atmosphere top notch. The weather is warm again and boys are back in tank tops, shorts and flip flops. Just the other day when I did the sculpting at the GranDaisy Bakery the weather was ice cold and slushy. I had no energy when I did a presentation for the young art students at the Barney Art Building of NYU. Afterward Jons Berger took me to eat at Westville East on Avenue A @11th Street where I had a most scrumpy clam chowder and lamb burger. There was one Mexican bus boy who was beyond major Ms. Gorgeous.
When Love Camel was in town staying at the Thompson Hotel Lower East Side saw a celebrity sighting in the lobby of Filipino pop star Bruno Mars. That wonderful Camel also took me to see the movie The Perks of Being a Wallflower starring Emma Watson and Ezra Miller who is quite lovely, but I liked the young star Logan Lerman the best. He has quite a tight body.
Haven’t been able to see everyone that I wanted to because of illness and a very tight schedule here in New York. Special shoutouts to Leon Hilton, Camel and Dr. Munoz who all took me out for wonderful bruncheons.
