Performance artist of the Week: AB Soto
I saw him perform a few weeks ago in Brooklyn. He is so cute! The dancing and the styling is super fresh and street. And he uses all the kids, queens, and queers from my neighborhood in his music videos. It's just campy fun!
They have all the football games on TVs, play metal and rock 'n' roll, serve vegan and vegetarian empanadas, AND they allow dogs inside the bar! It's my dog Elvis's favorite spot to see people and be seen!
I love his freckles. His cheekbones. His interesting ethnic background: half Vietnamese and half Lithuanian. He's so major!
Photo book of the week: Herbert List The Monograph
Picked this up during a date in DUMBO at the P.S. Bookshop, one of my favorite bookstores. The photos are so graphic, elegant, sexy, and perfect. It's amazing how much his work predates Herb Ritts and Mapplethorpe, and yet he seems, to me, to be less known. His photos of male youth are absolutely stunning.
Cookies of the week: Ginger Cookies with Pumpkin
I found this recipe a few years ago on Oprah.com. I do two eggs instead of one and the cookies come out really soft and cakey, like a whoopie pie. I smash a glob of vanilla ice cream between two to make an ice cream sandwich. Everyone seems to love them around this time of year!
