Review: Angels and Ages

February 26th, 2009 at 10:55 am

I’ve recently begun to use Goodreads, a book-driven social networking site, in earnest. I gotta say – it’s fucking awesome. Social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook are good for dicking around, procrastinating, and internet-sanctioned stalking lite (all of which I am guilty of) – but Goodreads is all about dicking around and geeking out […]

Last night was the kick off party for the sixth annual CineKink Film Festival. The venue for the party was Kush, on Chrystie street, and I didn’t take pictures or tweet because I was busy talking to real live human beings. Crazy, I know. OK – its true that I was talking about twitter and […]

Now that I’m out of the habit of sex toy and smut reviewing, the number and range of peculiar things arriving in the mail have changed. However, today I got a delightful piece of mail from artist/mad scientist Adam Zaretsky, who I met in Amsterdam in 2007 when we shared the stage at C*lick Me. […]
