This is killing me! I thought I made up putting the words “sissy & dude” together… but here’s Elly May Clampett… sayin’ the word/words twice (@ 5:09 & 7:48)!!!
Thanks Anthony for sharing this with me… so awesome!
Jethro and his friend Beau Short decided to become “sophisticated international playboys”.
CARIOCAS by Antonio Da Silva
This is a voyeuristic hunt during my trip to Rio de Janeiro with lots of sea, sun, sweat and sexual encounters. Brazilian men care about their physique and they freely allow admiration of their sculpted bodies. The sensuality of those men creates blurry sexual identities.
An outdoors gym in the Arpoador area unveiled to me the vibrancy of the country and the diversity of men. Just behind the gym there is a gay cruising park. The gym crowd training during the day is very different from the one training at night. The film is a portrait of this shift while adding more Brazilian testosterone to this Summer’s football excitement in the country!

When I lived in Vancouver (from 1978-1982) The Aristocratic always fascinated me… especially at night when the neon lights would magically light up the dark wet streets. I went there maybe only a dozen times or so… but god I loved it with all the Daniel Clowes-like characters that would sit there for hours smoking, drinking coffee & eating pie. It was replaced in the late 90s by a Chapters bookstore. For some reason I thought about it today and obsessively looked for pics… and here’s what I found. For some reason I always thought “Risty”, the monocled dapper gent was also neon… with a movable tipping top hat. But I was dead wrong… apparently he was only a simple still image. Sometimes the mind remembers things in an extremely vivid fantastical way. The past seems all an illusion now.
