In Memoriam – Judy Blame


Judy Blame was a British stylist, jeweler and designer.


Tendre-herted, slydynge of corage


Athens, Georgia – A St. Valentine’s day filled with wonderful surprises. For me, it has been a long, long while. And for us, the best is yet to come.

Girls Rock Athens: Boys Who Rock For Girls [2018]


Athens, Georgia – Tonight is the last of three nights of live music performances by your fave-rave local male musicians covering their fave-rave female musicians. Girls Rock Athens presents: Boys Who Rock For Girls at Hi-Lo lounge [Normaltown]. Show starts at 7:00 p.m. Make it an early night. Bring a friend. Grab a cold brew. Snatch up some sweet s’wag. Be back at home before 1. By showing your support to Girls Rock Athens, you help our musical youth. A good thing. You can bank on it. 10-4.

A Happening



Athens, Georgia – Not much going on today but me being a mild anxiety attack wearing a two piece navy Miro printed linen pajama set with a sleeveless beige turtleneck beneath. Here, let me remove all vestiges of sexuality from my indoor-outdoor brunch look. Head to toe my entire ensemble beat yours up in three steps. To tamp down whatever is troubling me, here are this afternoon’s selections from my collection of hot wax:

Funk or Walk [1978/ Atlantic] – The Brides of Funkenstein

Stars [1979/ Fantasy] – Sylvester

Slayed? [1972/ Polydor] – Slade

Found: Ophelia

006She is one of the Low Yo-Yo Stuff record shop litter of kittens [July, 2012]

Athens, Georgia – [Chipped] feline found, safe and sound. [My] community has been super. The dainty fuzzy witchy wünder is back home after [what one can only assume was] a harrowing two month sabbatical. Claws. Out.

3 Things


‘Lip Service’ coffee mug [Zandra Rhodes]

Never say never. I may very well end up with Rhodes’ entire line of fiftieth anniversary ‘Lipstick 50’ coffee mugs. One never knows. M-m-m-m-m-m-m-m…Heavens no! Only two. And, make it…match-y match-y.


Assorted fair trade Danish chocolate bars [Tony’s Chocolonely]

P-u-r-r-r-r-r-r. I recently ordered a stack of Tony’s for myself. Its’ vintage-style packaging got me first. Lickin’ my fingerz. Likety-split. More. To. Come.



The House of Impossible Beauties by Joseph Cassara [Harper-Collins/ 2018]

Cassara’s re-imagining of The House of Xtravaganza, first brought to the world stage via Jenny Livingston’s epic 1991 L.G.B.T. documentary, Paris Is Burning. Did I pre-order this title?! Well, if you have to ask… [P-s-s-s-s-t! It’s in the mail. I stopped lending out my library. Which very well means: Go buy your own.] I enjoy winter and the curl-up-to-a-good-book-in-bed thing speaks to me. This title I hope exceeds whatever lowered expectations I may harbor.
