Spent a lovely afternoon being treated to luncheon at East London-God Save Brit Food on the Mehringdamm Corridor with two visiting jungen from Los Angeles in the form of 24 year old LACMA Development Department sweetie Lord Henry Woodward of Larchmont Village and his drag queen in training pal from the Palisades Kent of Kent. The kids are doing their European tour with pitstops in Berlin, Istanbul and the Venice Biennale. After hanging out with the children I scurried on my bike to enjoy a very lovely sunny spring day. Was riding past the Jewish Memorial and noticed a group of fetching tourista boys across the street snaping pics in front of the giant austere dull grey cube sculpture created by that Scandinavian artist pair Babbitt&Bromide or are they called Wahlgrens&Elmquest?Doesn’t matter. Loved oogling the big leggy boys but didn’t understand why they used that thing in the park as their backdrop.
Rising Stars, Falling Stars-We Must Have Music April edition was packed with worshipers of the house of Ms. Jodie Foster for our screening of her 1976 gangster moll film Bugsy Malone directed by Alan Parker and also starring Scott Baio. It was a hoot seeing the film after so many years. Ms. Foster was in town at the Babelsberg Studio working on her Leni Riefensthal film. Carolyn Clone the lesbian club mogul and one of Jodie’s ex girlfriends swore to me that Jodie would stop by my film screening but she didn’t. I think Jodie is probably still upset with me for writing about her relationship with her mother as being quasi incestuous. Well that was the impression I got when I first met them at the opening of the Famous Amos Cookie Store on Sunset Blvd back in the 1970s.
