How to watch porn

July 31st, 2007 at 10:43 am

I’ll admit it: as the screening of The Bi Apple at the Anthology Film Archives on last Tuesday approached, I became increasingly apprehensive. This was partly because the screening was to occur on my first night back in NYC, on which I really wanted nothing more than to crawl into a hole with delivered eats, […]


Naughty twists and turns

July 30th, 2007 at 11:08 am

Porno press releases usually make me want to shoot myself or teach remedial English to porn publicists. Mostly the former, it seems quicker and easier. But this weekend the best porn press release ever made its way into my inbox. Entitled “Creating Waves in Feminism one Anal Scene at a Time”, its about a fundraising […]


As it turns out, the Internet is not the answer to everything

July 29th, 2007 at 2:41 am

I realize that I haven’t at all given a proper update about my two weeks in California. And the truth is, it’s not gonna happen here. The play-by-play of my days is available on my Twitter (no sign-in required) and the visual version is on my Flickr (for which you do need a Flickr account […]


Dr. Sketchy’s Barbary Coast

July 26th, 2007 at 1:23 pm

At the end of my west coast book tour, I stripped down and modeled for Dr. Sketchy’s. Here are some of the resulting drawings. You can see more of Marc Taro Holmes’ work here, and a much bigger hi res version of these illustrations here. To see more sketches by Rachel Forbes, check out her […]

When New Yorkers Move to LA

July 19th, 2007 at 3:14 am

This is what they look like: Maybe I am really really tired, but I just laughed aloud for about five minutes while looking at this pic of Zak Sabbath and Mandy Morbid that I took this morning after we (plus Benny Profane) had a three hour brunch before I left Los Angeles.


Los Angeles

July 18th, 2007 at 3:52 am

My travels have been a weird mix of depressing (I am starting to panic about what next) and amazingly inspiring. I think I am just getting super tired of being out and about and not in my own comfy bed with my own boyfriend. I’ve been staying with Freddy & Eddy and just relaxing in […]

Roadtrip to LA: digital navigation

July 16th, 2007 at 6:54 pm

This trip to the West Coast has been something of a first for me: its the first time I’ve traveled completely without paper maps – instead I’ve been depending entirely on digital maps and directions. My rental car, which by all accounts is excessively sporty and ridiculous , is equipped with a global positioning system […]
