FABULOUS NOBODIES- SISSYDUDE talks to JOHN SIMONE about his AWESOME NYC Party Photos! (via Daily Xtra)
Sissydude: Photographer John Simone has two photo retrospectives happening during Toronto’s World Pride. The shows feature New York club culture icons from 1987- 1990. They include Rupaul, Kenny Kenny, Leigh Bowery, John Sex, Quentin Crisp, James St. James, Divine, The It Twins and of course “Party Monster” Michael Alig. Even Cher, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Sandra Bernhard pop up!
Simone left Toronto for New York in 1986 and immediately started working for Club-18 (The Roxy), Details Magazine (including Details’ influential nightlife column by Stephen Saban), Vanity Fair and The Village Voice. Of course the magic really started happening for him when friend Michael Alig appointed Simone chief photographer for his Project X Magazine.
I recently went to visit the very excitable and engaging Simone (above, pictured on the right, with Michael Musto) in his studio apartment in Toronto to get a glimpse of his gorgeous photos and talk, talk, talk about his subjects and his very interesting life during that time. Of course the magnificent creatures in the photos are what really gets him going…

RuPaul Drag Race Season 6 star BenDeLaCreme presents the Episodes 7 & 8 of “Capitol Hill” starring Waxie Moon. Created by the award-winning filmmaker Wes Hurley and inspired by 70s-80s TV shows, “Capitol Hill” follows an innocent young girl, named Roses Smell, who escapes the terrible backwater hell-hole of Portland, Oregon and comes to beautiful Seattle, Washington, in hopes of a better life. But will she find it?
STARGAYZING: Barbara Cartland’s Album of Love Songs, Sung Especially For You is a thrillingly awful recording from 1978 that combines several things I love very much: bad prose, the singing voice of an elderly woman, orchestral music, and non-singers with big egos leveraging success in other mediums to create a vanity album, especially for you! In the case of this record, we have an eighty-year old English romance novelist whose tentative, tremulous soprano quivers and chirps like a small, wounded bird through some of the finest standards ever written. When she attempts to soar you can hear the panicked flapping of a single wing—”ascend, I say!” Throughout, Miss Cartland’s anemic vocals are ably supported by the massive Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, who were undoubtedly well-compensated for this recording. A voice this tentative backed by the Royal Philharmonic is the musical equivalent of using a pen light to guide an ocean liner and, indeed, half the fun of this record is the ever-present risk of icebergs!
