Celebrating My Friends

I would just like to take some time and recongize the people who make my day via texts

  • Kevin Haley

"Its ok I found jesus and that's better than any other boy"
  • Jennifer Brissette
2/23/09, 1:36 PM
"You're gayer than i remember"
  • My new friend Kimberly (who I don't know her last name since I met her this weekend)
2/22/09, 3:43 PM
"I'd like to be Cher at the Oscars circa 1987"
2/22/09, 3:46 PM
"Let's have a Cher party"
**on a side note when I got this girl's phone number the night I met her on Saturday I believe 2 seconds after she put my number in her phone, I got a text from her talking shit on the people next to us. It pretty much made my life. Then via text a few minutes after that I believe she made a reference to me having a fourgy with some guys...
  • Sonrisa
2/22/09, 2:01 PM
"Alex you know i love you, bot there are just some things you just shouldn't tell me....upsetting things."
**nothing but reality from my roommate and a best friend of mine Sonrisa
Thank you again to all who make my day a little brighter by texting me your thoughts and opinions...and if not LET'S TEXT FLIRT! hit me up!

A night at the bath house

My friend Jesse(who took all the photos below) lives at a house in West Philadelphia called the bath house, it is a West Philly house that has been around for a while and got its name from the sauna that was built next to the kitchen. She moved in there about a month ago and had a little gathering of a few close friends

Brendy is the new Chuck Norris

The lovely Hosts and Peter

Xavier walking into the sauna secrets


Nikki and I post Sauna

Life can be good, I will probably end up a Vice Don't

I want to spend the rest of winter in that sauna

we told secrets in the sauna
and I was dubbed the gayest man in the world due to my secret

the gays loved zac (pictured above)... jessie and sylvia too

it was a fancy event but someone told this guy it was a costume party, he was fun though

The people who get me through winter

It suits him well
I had a very West Philadelphia weekend as I only went to parties throughout University City and West Philly, and Sunday was 2 piece fest!!! 22 2 piece bands from 2pm-midnight @ Pi Lam, it was amazing. I don't remember a lot of the specific bands as there were so many but I was actually really blown away by the band Trophy Wife from DC and I am trying to get a hold of any of thier material they might have if anyone can help me with that it would be much appreciated!

5 things that are getting my through my Friday

1. This article about a woman who got shot at but the bullet got stuck in her weave

2. I went to the T Bell in the mall and got 3 of these bad jose's and feel much better about life now. I usually avoid fast food, but T Bell is my guilty pleasure, only the bean burritos though...nothing less, nothing more.

3. My friend Jennifer's childrens poems she is writing in the tradition of Shel Silverstein

When Friends and Family Let You Down ('cause they will)

t.v. never yells at me.

t.v. is always there.

t.v. never hits me...

that's how i know it cares.

t.v. always calms me when i'm having a bad day.

t.v. knows just what i need to make me feel okay.

4. MackDugan's S/S '09 collection...I am in love...

5. Viktor Vauthier photo's and day dreaming of being a muse for him

Thank god I have an early day and it is the weekend...hopefully I can get a ride to the screaming females show or someone wants to give me an extra ticket they have to the vivian girls show...

Bangkok label Shake Appeal makes me anticipate Spring coming each and everyday I wake up to a cold harsh Northeast climate which is completely foriegn to me. Just looking at the colors of these items makes me visualize days in the park with a bottle of champagne, a boombox, friends and hussies alike.
This is a total inspiration for what will come in my S/S 09 wardrobe and what I have been keeping my eye out for in thrift and vintage stores. Although I feel while browsing the website for the 70th time, I know I will find something that strikes my fancy so much I will HAVE to order it. The trick is finding a way to pull off my olive/tan skintone(which I thank god for everyday) with some of the more pastel spring colors.

3 day weekend

this 3 day weekend turned out for the best, as friday I went to go see my friend Deshawn preform in Sgt. Sass, a queer hip hop duo with inspirations drawing from all over the board including one miss Courtney Love as they sample her in their song "Demonstrate" , then danced the night away to oldies. It was refreshing to know that people in Philadelphia are throwing fun parties that aren't always at the same venues and including different elements. It was also refreshing to meet new fags as well as hang out with the ones I have come to know and love.

So refreshing to be out of Philadelphia even if just for a few hours to go to the Brooklyn Anti-Valentines Day Riot Grrrl Cover band show on Saturday, which included Raooul, the Gossip, Excuse 17, Blatz (who covered also You Oughta Know by Alanis!), Huggy Bear, Sleater Kinney, Bikini Kill, and Lydia Lunch. All the bands were remarkable, I missed Raooul though which I am bummed about (since one of the members was in a Hole cover band for the Philadelphia Riot Grrrl cover band show back in October).

Excuse 17 was a raw energetic fun, Blatz (who also preformed at the Philly Riot Grrrl cover show) had another stellar preformance led by the personality filled front woman Carolanne and the fact that actually did "You Oughta Know" which was incredible because they were originally going to do an Alanis cover band for the Philly show in october but got hella backlash claiming that Alanis was not riot grrrl which maybe be true but its always amazing to hear covers such as that. Huggy Bear for me was probably the highlight of the show as the front woman Sonrisa is my roommate and the bewildering hot Jon Abbot was on bass and sang for pansy twist, with other West Philadelphians Amina and Ashley on guitar and drums doing an amazing job and delivering so well. Sleater Kinney was well but I didn't catch alot of them as I was on a quest to get weeded(which failed), Bikini Kill delivered great as I knew they would they played a wide variety and long set of all my favorite songs. And the show closed with Lydia Lunch who was a very attractive band delivering Teenage Jesus and the Jerks era Lydia doing her justice.

For the Birds zine distro was tabling, I scored a "gimme cooties" comp tape which is a comp of all girl/girl bands from the area. I havent listened to all of it but I am stoked to be in an area right now with so many amazing female fronted bands such as screaming females, cheeky, the homewreckers, etc. etc.

The show really made me feel the good feelings I used to get when I was 16/17 driving to Gilman every weekend to go to shows. So I am going to try to embark on a few projects now hopefully if I can get my shit together, as I have alot on my mind and I need some other release of it than the usual masterbation and shopping sprees.

I am sure a ton of pictures will surface from the show but if you want to see some from the lovely bongwitch alene, check them out!
