SISSYDUDE LOVES: CALL ME A GHOST “an erotic film about melancholy” by NOEL ALEJANDRO… (TRAILERS & SEXY PICS)

BARCELONA – Alternative gay porn director Noel Alejandro is proud to announce the release of his first erotic film, “Call Me a Ghost”. In Alejandro’s protagonist’s life, something seems to be permanently out of place. He is intelligent, attractive and talented – however this supposedly good life seems to lose relevance as he falls into commanding sadness. He resists to leave his house and starts to feel desolation taking over when, at the apex of a major crisis, he is visited by a supernatural presence. Feeling strangely attracted to it and with nothing to lose, he welcomes the ghost, maybe hoping to sense contact with someone else. Will this strange presence become a safe harbour for him to reassert control? The ghost is surprisingly graceful: is there a place for desire in sadness? Could pleasure become a weapon in fighting deep solitude?

Part of the director’s effort in pushing the boundaries of the adult film industry, Call Me a Ghost is a moving portrayal of human melancholy, and a daring exploration of the roles of sex, pleasure and intimacy in the life of a man whose hope is falling short.

CALL ME A GHOST by Noel Alejandro – trailer soft from Noel Alejandro on Vimeo.

Now, the explicit trailer…

Watch video!

“Call Me a Ghost was made to tell us that sometimes feeling blue is fine – even in the porn world.”

Call Me A Ghost will be available from February 17th

“Sadness wasn’t my first emotion choice when writing Call Me a Ghost. The original inspiration was about doing a good explicit film about the supernatural, something with ghosts and a good dose of mystery. But the more I thought about the plot, and the more I explored the details, the more I saw this sad atmosphere surrounding my character. At first I thought it was presumptuous (or even just wrong) and started to hysterically shake my hand over my character’s head trying to dissipate the dark clouds. But they just wouldn’t go away. And then I understood.”

SISSYDUDE LOVES: THE AWESOME GRAPHIC GRAPHICS of vintage DRUMMER MAGAZINE!

So I’m home with a flu/ cold that just lingers and won’t go away… and for some reason DRUMMER Magazine popped up in my head. Lately, I’ve been seeing images of vintage covers popping up on Instagram, Tumblr and such. The graphics and photos really look amazing to me. So here are some mind-blowing images that I found, mostly via some lovely soul named Vince who scanned a full 20 issues! LOVE… probably one of my fave Sissydude posts. Enjoy!

Images posted here via VINCE @ SCRIBD. You can look through Vince’s scans of a full 20 issues HERE.
So much great stuff to savour!

WIKIPEDIA: Drummer was an American magazine targeted at gay men with an interest in the leather subculture founded by John H. Embry and Jeanne Barney in Los Angeles, 1975. Because of police harassment, the magazine moved to San Francisco in 1977, with Jack Fritscher as new editor-in-chief (1977–1999). The last number of the magazine, issue 214, was published in April 1999.

Drummer was the most successful of the American leather magazines and was also sold overseas. The publication had a major impact of spreading gay leather as a lifestyle and masculinity as a gay ideal. The magazine was originally focused on quality writings about leather but gradually changed into more of a photo magazine. Among the published writers and artists were Phil Andros, Tim Barrus, Scott Masters, Tom of Finland, Robert Opel, Fred Halsted, David Hurles, Rex (artist), British artist Bill Ward and Larry Townsend. It featured comic strips starring buff gay secret agent Harry Chess by Al Shapiro (under the name “A. Jay”). The photographer Robert Mapplethorpe contributed a photograph for the cover of issue 24, September 1978.

The magazine arranged yearly International Mr. Drummer contests in San Francisco, 1981–1999 (ca).

(watch a bit of the 1985 contest at the end of this post)

Manga artist Gengoroh Tagame has pointed to the magazines illustrated strips as a major influence on his own work.

(1975-1999) at the end of this long obsessive post.

ELSKA MAGAZINE ISSUE (08) TORONTO CANADA

Issue (08) is dedicated to Toronto, Ontario, one of the most multicultural cities in the world. It’s also one of the most mixed up and hard to fathom cities – the architecture is all over the place, the neighbourhoods all feel disparate, and the whole place is vast. We knew from the start we wanted to do a Canadian city, and this made a fantastic introduction to a fascinating and multi-faceted country.

We travelled all over this town meeting the local boys and seeing the sights, including lots of cameos of the CN Tower. There’s also a few Canadian touches here and there like one lad in front of some red maple leaves and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau next to a boy with his dick out!

Like the city, the fourteen men featured inside represent a variety of cultural backgrounds, races, body types, styles, and ages (this issue’s men ranged from 20 to 73). Each were photographed around the city or in their homes, and many did both, including a fair few nudes – Torontonians turned out to not be a very shy bunch! And as usual, each boy’s spread includes by a story written by him about his life and the city.

SISSYDUDE LOVES: THE STYLE & WORK of OSSIE CLARK & CELIA BIRTWELL

ossie-bailey-vogue-july-74-a

Sometimes I get obsessed/ inspired about someone (or a group of people) and I can’t stop searching for info on them. Recently I’ve had my Hockney LOVE (re-reading 1976’s Hockney by Hockney) resurface and with it, Hockney’s friends- muse Celia Birtwell and “maybe Hockney’s lover” and Celia’s husband and creative partner Ossie Clark. Birtwell popped up recently in 2015 when she collaborated with Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino’s beautiful pre-fall 2015 collection. So here you go. Come join my new obsession! I’ve got Julia Watt’s 2003 book ‘Ossie Clark 1965-1974’, The Ossie Clark Diaries & Birtwell’s 2011 picture book coming in the mail, so I’ll be busy reading and observing images through now and into 2017. Probably share more images as well. Don’t worry… hairy assholes will be coming soon!

Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy 1970-1 David Hockney born 1937 Presented by the Friends of the Tate Gallery 1971

Wikipedia: Mr and Mrs Clark and Percy is a painting by the British artist David Hockney. Painted between 1970 and 1971, it depicts the fashion designer Ossie Clark and the textile designer Celia Birtwell shortly after their wedding at which Hockney was Clark’s best man. Hockney and Clark had been friends since the early 1960s. One of their cats sits on Ossie’s knee (the cat in the painting was not in fact Percy — this was the name of one of their other cats — but Hockney thought Percy made a better title than Blanche, the cat he painted). The work is in acrylic on canvas, and measures 2170 x 3084mm in its frame. The painting featured in the final 10 of the Greatest Painting in Britain Vote in 2005, the only work by a living artist to do so. The painting is in the collection of the Tate Gallery.

INDEPENDENT UK: In the painting, Birtwell wears a dress co-designed by her and her husband. Theirs was one of fashion’s most volatile but successful marriages. Success is an odd word to use, given that the couple divorced in 1974, and Clark and his business were declared bankrupt in the early 1980s. But their professional and personal partnership defined the 1960s and 70s, forming a blueprint for contemporary British fashion. That blueprint comprises spectacular shows, painstakingly constructed clothes, a global influence on other designers and, paradoxically, creative abundance shackled by financial reality. Ossie Clark and Celia Birtwell represented its first cresting wave – one that inevitably came crashing down. Read the rest HERE.

birtwellhockney-rex

Hockney drew on both The Arnolfini Portrait by Jan van Eyck and A Rake’s Progress by William Hogarth in the symbolism and composition of the painting. A copy of Hockney’s own interpretation of A Rake’s Progress is seen on the wall. The positions of the two figures are reversed from the Arnolfini Portrait with the conclusion that Birtwell is the assertive partner. The lilies next to Birtwell, a symbol of female purity are also associated with depictions of the Annunciation (at the time of the portrait Birtwell was pregnant). The cat on Clark’s lap is a symbol of infidelity and envy. In this case, Clark continued to have affairs which contributed to the breakdown of the marriage in 1974.

Author Judith Watt comments: “Celia collaborated with Ossie. This was a joint effort. People say that she was his muse, which indeed she was, but their work absolutely went hand in hand. It was her designs that he used to create his. I think it’s unfair that she not be given that voice”

Ossie was noted, from this period on, for buying six new record albums a week, all from the newest and most popular recording artists. His love of music and art were legendary amongst Ossie’s friends. Also at this time Ossie began to take hard drugs more recreationally with friend and business partner Alice Pollock. “This is when his character began to change” says longtime friend Lady Henrietta Rous.
