If you are a fan of the surrealistic photographs of David LaChapelle (not to be confused with the comedian whose name is similar but not and it’s unbelievable how many people mix the two up), you will also enjoy his latest exhibit “Land Scape” at Paul Kasmin Gallery in New York.
The sites depicted in this exhibit are of gas stations and refineries and when you take a closer look, you will see that the objects that make up these structures are soda cans, straws and other items that typically spend more time on this planet in land fills than being useful items.
As always with Lachapelle’s works, the photos are very large and really must be seen in person to grasp detail of each work. The opening night party was filled with LaChapelle’s admirers from Amanda Lepore to artist Mark Ryden. It was quite a scene.
Despite being pretty mobbed, David LaChapelle was extremely nice to everyone and even posed for a photo with yours truly. Thanks David!

David LaChapelle’s “Land Scape” will be on view through March 1st, 2014 at Paul Kasmin Gallery, Located on the corner of Tenth Avenue and 27th Street.
2014 is here and there is already a must hear recording artist – Britain’s 23 year old soul sensation John Newman. He’s having quite a week after making his US TV debut, getting two Brit Award nominations, performing a sold out show at the legendary New York venue Bowery Ballroom and most importantly, having his photo taken with ME!
The encore for John Newman’s slaying set on January 9, 2014 was “Love Me Again,” and you are going to love his voice, his hair (might be hard to tell in the video, but he has a little blond stripe in the front that is super cute) and his dancing. Best of luck to you in 2014 and beyond John!
If you’ve never seen Kris Kuksi’s work in person, you are doing your eyes and soul a great disservice. His works are nearly impossible to photograph as there are hundreds, if not thousands, of miniature characters, structures and stories within stories that your brain will create as you look at his extremely intricate sculptures. His latest exhibit “Revival” at Joshua Liner Gallery in Manhattan is no exception.
Even the detail photos can’t capture the epic quality of these sculptures. There’s really not much more I can say other than, you need to see these works of art with your own eyes!

So I will close by saying this – “Revival” by Kris Kuksi is showing at Joshua Liner Gallery (located at 540 West 28th Street) in New York through January 18, 2014, so do not miss it!
Happy birthday to actor and writer Wallace Shawn! I love him. If you’ve never seen (or read) “My Dinner With Andre,” you are missing out on an epic conversation between two long lost friends who discuss all types of spiritual concepts as they reunite. Definitely a must see/read. Thanks for being super cool Wally and hope you have the happiest of birthdays today!
Ever since N’Sync were popular, people have told me that I look like N’Sync’er Lance Bass. I’ve never really gotten the reference, but when I met Lance Bass face to face for the first time recently, I finally see where people came up with that. Lance didn’t do a double take, though I admit that after so many people have made comments to me about how similar we look, I stared at him when he was in front of my face. He was super cool and maybe that’s why I’ve been confused with him all these years. At any rate thanks to my not-so-doppleganger Lance Bass for being super cool.
