If you haven’t seen the titular David Lynch movie, there may be something wrong with you.

Funny thing is, my friend Bryce, NYC photographer extraordinaire, went to the party destination the night before, thinking it was the right evening. Instead of the party house, he walked into a dinner party at Kyle McLaughlin‘s home- star of many a David Lynch projects like Twin Peaks.  Talk about a LA experience.

If you know Lynch’s work- then we have no body switching to report to you than this bit of serendipity way above the sparkling lights of the city.

Here is what we did get into with @SuiteCaroline @Teigehertales @timbannock  @laurienlandry and @bryce_ward and Lil Ashley and Will.

Like Drag Queens?

October 20, 2009

Men dressed like women are everywhere- in every country. We in the US will see a ton of them in a couple weeks.

Besides Ed Wood, secretly every man wants to try on women’s clothing. I’m positive of it. I had neighbors in college who were supposed studs, but loved having parties where they got to dress like girls- you know- they typical pimp & ho parties, but they made the girls dress like the p-i-m-p-s.

Role reversal is the stuff of giggles.

Got tranny fluid? No? Well, ask your local car mechanic.

For reference, see Julian Fleisher’s definitive guide on drag queens.

Kudos if you can figure out where these pics were taken…

Yesterday was so much fun, courtesty of Brandie June and one her wonderful just for fun productions.  We shot some footage for our Halloweenie Episode.

We were at a red wedding- yeah you heard right.

Zombies attacked and transformed some people right after their nuptuals, all under swaying palm trees.

There were even pint size zombies running around.  You’ll see more when Brandie has a gallery exhibit up of all the fun times.

Here’s something fun from Dustin McLean– a literal video of Billy Idol’s White Wedding- enjoy—>

In a couple weeks, we’re off to shoot a haunted hayride. Hope we survive it!
