On the Offense... | Son of a Fitch

On several occasions in past months I have been the target of the biting jab of "Abercrombie!" from unkempt street kids on my block. Like any other inappropriately pointed remark, the problems with the association and a brand I abhor so much are multi-layered. While there is very little about how I dress that can be compared to the A&F look, I'm even more perturbed by the suggestion that I somehow embody something that connects me with something I am actively working against; pre-pilled sweaters, advertising that features nothing more than a millimeter or two of a waistband amongst the lust-inducing flesh, muscle-bound rugby teams tossing the pig skin instead of studying or listening to a new record......puh-lease!

So, perhaps "Abercrombie" has become street slang for something else and I remain unaware? Perhaps I really DO emit an A&F aroma and never even knew it! Please someone - fill in a few blanks for me, would you?

Ringing in the New Year | Working | Mighty Real

2008 is here and I am working hard to start the new year on a good foot. A few things I've done to begin this year with confidence, strong convictions, and remembering things that matter to me:

a) When Sylvester sang "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" at The Cuff, I shook it especially hard. I knew one of my beloved Cockettes would want 2008 to be great for us all. I worked for it.

b)As an act of care and adoration for a past I never knew, I smoked 2 Nat Sherman Clove cigarettes; one for John|Peace, and for Yoko|Love. I worked to enjoy them, but it didnt work.

c)In celebration of my new job as assistant costume designer at 5th Avenue Theatre downtown, I watched both film versions of MAME. While the costumes in both were superb, Rosalind Russell takes the cake on all accounts. Now I work 8:30 to 5 again.
