“He moved to Bangkok shortly after I moved to Mexico City, and when I decided to move there six months ago, he sweetly invited me to be his roommate! We, naturally, had a clothing optional house, and I photographed him quite often in the course of our daily lives. Here he is, modeling at my apartment in Bangkok, my roommate and good good friend!” - felix d’eon

HOTARIOUS: Byredo Parfums CANDY DARLING scented candle was a thing… and Byredo’s frilly perfume discriptions are a thing of beauty!

Candy Darling is a home scent composition offered in candle form, composed by acclaimed perfumer Olivia Giacobetti for BYREDO“, the niche fragrance line founded by Ben Gorham. With top notes of coriander, heart notes of rosewood and patchouli and base notes of benzoin and sweet musk, Candy Darling is reminiscent of the Warhol transsexual superstar of the same name and The Velvet Underground muse who died tragically at the age of 29.

o.19444

Her persona has been immortalized in “Women in Revolt” (1971) while more mainstream viewers might remember her as a disco patron in the Jane Fonda vehicle “Klute”.

American fashion designer Zac Posen mentions lighting the ByRedo candles in his studio, and specifically cites Candy Darling among his most favorite things in a recent Vogue UK spread.

SISSYDUDE LOVES: “IN THEIR ROOM- BERLIN” full feature @ i want your love the movie

In-Their-Room-Berlin

IN THEIR ROOM BERLIN sample from Travis Mathews on Vimeo.

Sample of the film above. Want to watch the FULL film? Watch it HERE for Free thru March 31st

NEW NOW NEXT: With films like Blue is the Warmest Color and Nymphomania getting critical acclaim, the lines between porn and mainstream film continue to blur. Now Travis Mathews, who brought us the explicit I Want Your Love and co-directed Interior. Leather. Bar with James Franco, presents another transgressive film, In Their Room: Berlin.

Screen Shot 2014-03-20 at 1.17.31 PM

Part of an international series, Berlin is a quasi-documentary, tracing the romantic and sexual lives of gay men in the German capital.  “This is an incredible series,” says producer Jack Shamama. “The Berlin installment was shot while Travis was on tour with I Want Your Love, but hasn’t been seen much outside of Germany.  For fans of Mathew’s it’s a chance to see something new. But we’re also hoping that it helps introduce him to a new audience.”

Screen Shot 2014-03-20 at 1.17.10 PM

The film is being released by Naked Sword, the adult-film company that has branched out into more artistic fare with I Want Your Love. It’ll be available for be free through March 31 on IWantYourLoveTheMovie.com, and then on the members’ section of NakedSword.com (NSFW)

“Ironically, I think it took a porn company to show that an artistically honest film could use sex in a way that wasn’t exploitative or gratuitous,” says Naked Sword CEO Tim Valenti. “You see it all over gay media now, from Blue Is the Warmest Color to Looking. Travis’s follow up film Interior. Leather Bar went to Sundance, got mainstream distribution, and a glowing New York Times review. It’s funny to think that I Want Your Love got banned when we were showing it at festivals just last year.”

SISSYDUDE LOVES: NOT INTO ASIAN by ELY KIM, 2012 (via Inti)

sissydude loves: “on a path” – owen pallett (btw… he might be wearing Kenzo tonight)

owen-pallett11

T-MAG: “But for the video for the song “On a Path,” which premieres above, Pallett turned to one of his longest-running creative partners, the artist Steve Kedo. The pair have worked together since they were college roommates. For this particular video, Kedo stayed at Pallett’s house for an entire week while photographing every object in it. “It’s very much conceptually about taking stock of our possessions, and the implied validation of life from the things we surround ourselves with,” Pallett explained. “And it will also help with insurance claims in case my possessions ever got destroyed in a fire!”

SISSYDUDE LOVES: HILDA! Paintings by Duane Bryers

7b91565f9e40632c729513e18d69a699

I posted HILDA on my old Sissydude blog years ago (when it was on Blogspot) and came across them yesterday. Love these paintings so much!
Thanks Toil girls!


TOIL GIRLS
: Duane Bryers’ incredible Hilda paintings were done specifically for Bigelow & Brown’s Hilda calendars. These were illustrated between 1957 and 1970 although Mr. Bryers continued to do original paintings for the calendars until the early 1980s. These were all primarily rendered in watercolor employing the service of a number of plus-size models, but more often than not, he
used no model at all, a feat most impressive. MORE HILDA IMAGES HERE @ TOIL GIRLS

THE QUEEN (full version of the 1968 CLASSIC) @ MyLifeasPhil… via MAMA!!

tumblr_lkfmn3GLgT1qfnhuco1_1280

The Queen was filmed in NYC in 1967 and released in theaters in 1968. In 1967 it was illegal for men to dress as women. The documentary follows a 1967 Drag pageant judged by Andy Warhol among others. It stars Jack Doroshow aka Flawless Mother Sabrina, Richard Finochio aka Rachel Harlow and Crystal LaBeija. Crystal went on to start The House of LaBeija pageants which was the premise of the 90′s documentary “Paris is Burning.” In 1972 Richard Finochio underwent sex reassignment surgery to become Rachel Harlow, she began dating John B. Kelly, Grace Kelly’s brother. The relationship ended when John’s mother said she would disinherit him if he married Rachel. Rachel opened the Philadelphia night club “Harlow’s” in the 1970′s. The only person to surface since this classic film was made is Jack Doroshow when he was interviewed by James St. James on youtube. International Chrysis (1951-1990) can be seen as a teenage boy rehearsing dance numbers. These are the Queens who opened the doors for RuPaul and RuPaul’s Drag Race of today. via MyLifeasPhil

SISSYDUDE LOVES: Richard Hawkins – Bob Mizer & Tom of Finland – MOCA U – MOCAtv

Tom-Of-Finland

Artist Richard Hawkins tours Bob Mizer & Tom of Finland, the first American museum exhibition devoted to the art of Mizer (1922-1992) and Touko Laaksonen, a.k.a. “Tom of Finland” (1920-1991), at MOCA Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. Hawkins, who guest co-curated the exhibition with MOCA Curator Bennett Simpson, examines selections from the first-ever presentation of catalogue boards of Mizer’s Athletic Model Guild studios, which to him are enthusiastic celebrations of everyday youth and beauty, as well as Tom of Finland’s pencil drawings and pen-and-ink illustrations of radical sexuality.

tom-of-finland-1

As an artist who has produced collage work, Hawkins pays particular attention to Finland’s collage binders, which appear to investigate icons of popular culture for their innate “hotness.” In light of the sexual freedoms still denied in Russia, the “titillating, thrilling and sex-positive” work created by Mizer and Tom of Finland decades ago remains as relevant today.

http://sites.moca.org/thecurve/2013/1…

Tom_Boards

Bob Mizer & Tom of Finland, currently on view at The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, is the first American museum exhibition devoted to the art of Bob Mizer (1922–1992) and Touko Laaksonen, aka “Tom of Finland” (1920–1991), two of the most significant figures of twentieth century erotic art and forefathers of an emergent post-war gay culture. The exhibition features a selection of Tom of Finland’s masterful drawings and collages, alongside Mizer’s rarely seen photo-collage “catalogue boards” and films, as well as a comprehensive collection of his groundbreaking magazine Physique Pictorial, where drawings by Tom were first published in 1957. Organized by MOCA Curator Bennett Simpson and guest co-curator Richard Hawkins, the exhibition is presented with the full collaboration of the Bob Mizer Foundation, El Cerrito, and the Tom of Finland Foundation, Los Angeles.

SISSYDUDE LOVES: The Art Of PETER DE POTTER

angelic starts, routine routine, i am an image machine, lovers are warriors

SHOWSTUDIO: Peter De Potter is an artist from Belgium. De Potter studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, and currently lives and works in Antwerp. He garnered attention for his 2001 to 2010 collaboration with Raf Simons. The collaboration was initially focused on one collection, but soon expanded to a continued, lengthy relationship. De Potter served as a consultant, assisting with concepts, as well as providing artwork – both images and words – for Simon’s prints. De Potter also designed and art directed Raf Simon’s book ‘Redux’, as well as the Raf Simons ‘Repeat’ installation for Pitti Immagine 2005.

Peter de Potter – Routine, Lovely Routine from The Avant/Garde Diaries on Vimeo.

In 2004 De Potter presented his video installation ‘The Young Gods’ during another Pitti project in Florence, titled ‘NEO80’. In 2011 he had an entry in ‘Transmission1 – Avant/Garde Diaries’ in Berlin, where he showed sections of his series ‘Image Machine’. Although De Potter has been producing art for the last fifteen years – photography, text, collage, appropriation – he only began to ‘officially’ establish himself in the art world in the last three years. He is notable for taking a less traditional art route by showing sections of his work directly on the internet, mainly via Tumblr pages that each show a specific series.
