I had seen pictures of that photoshoot, but somehow didn’t blog about it. Then Mary sent me the picture below. This has to be the best one from this session.

(the Courtney picture is way down, if you don’t mind scrolling through all the skinny rock stuff, had to close my eyes.)

On last week’s vacation, I sent the palm tree picture below to my friend Sabs (aka die Hausfrau-Vagabundin) and she replied with the sea anemone shot.
Don’t you love nasty nature?
The fun East Village Boys has an excellent post about and by photographer Dan Nicoletta, a friend and photographer of Harvey Milk and the Castro of the 70s. Below are just three pictures out of many. Make sure to head over to evb.
“(above right) Divine terrorizing the Trockadero Dance Club, October 29, 1978. He had just thrown an entire cake into the audience, nailing many, and was on his way to the other side of the stage to tear down the Trock”™s other white and silver faux palm trees. I guess he didn”™t like the decor. This was just after his starring role in John Water”™s, Female Trouble.”
Castro Street cruising, August, 1976
The recently released “œMilk: A Harvey Milk Pictorial Biography“, foreword by Armistead Maupin, introduction by Lance Black, the screenwriter of the film “œMILK”. It features many photographs by Dan Nicoletta.
Above is a photo of a page from Place Space, the magazine featuring John Waters at home. So, of course, this is showing one of his many book piles.
And what can we see CLEARLY in the pile to the right? John Waters has a copy of Ausserirdische Zwitterwesen / Alien Hybrid Creatures, the book by die Professorin Michael Krebber.
Below is my personal re-visualisation of the book pile for your viewing pleasure.
In the newest issue of Place Space, designer Todd Oldham fotographs John Waters at home. The book comes wrapped in a custom designed poster as well as tear out postcards featuring books from Water”™s shelves such as “œSex on Horseback” and “œGay John”. Also included are essays by Todd Oldham and Cindy Sherman.

I just placed my order.
I have uploaded a few pictures to flickr.
You can see me totally knocked out at gay pride Frankfurt in 2002 (I think someone poured something in my drinks) and at my summer party 2003.
I had Rinderzunge at Xmas 2003: it was delicious. To be honest, I have had ox tongue many times, but only when Jesus is born.
Some recent pictures were taken in Toronto. In case you wondered: What is produzentin doing all day long? Well, she took pictures of magnolia trees.
Anyway, have a look at all the sets.
Oh, before I forget, there is a picture of a sea cucumber taking a shit.

Update on the best Toronto Queens.

I’m pulling a daily dose.
As you might already know, this is my favourite Toronto photoblog.
More crouching animals…

produzentin just moved to the popular Queen West neighborhood in Toronto, named after its main strip, Queen Street West. It’s a little bit like Berlin Mitte 1995. Galleries and cafes are just around the corner.
And so is the Centre of Addiction and Mental Health. Because of its house number, people would say, take me to 999. So the number was changed to 1001, to give it a more optimistic vibe.
What I love about Toronto is all things related to the Queen. It started with the ride from the airport to downtown. I adored the little crowns on the highway signs.
All hail the Queen!
My favorite cafe so far is Clafouti. Very french. Love the name. French pudding. Mmmh.
