The new Michael Stokes book—Bare Strength—is out now, just in time for holiday gift-giving. The project, which is packed like roe in a mama salmon with eye-popping images of beautiful men, is more than just another coffee-table book—it's also a Kickstarter phenomenon (it reached its funding within 48 hours) and a charitable endeavor.

Alex-MinskyYou go, GoDaddy!

Stokes created a limited edition of 100 books signed by all three amputee vets pictured in his work, which raised $10K for the Semper Fi fund—an amount matched by the founder of GoDaddy.

The Naked Truth: A Review Of THE ANDY COHEN DIARIES Comments (0)

  Andy-CohenAndy Cohen as Burt Reynolds by Alejandro Mogollo for Boy Culture

BOY CULTURE REVIEW: ***1/2 out of ****

Cohen 

The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year (Henry Holt, $26) is the follow up to Cohen's best-selling Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Line of Pop Culture. That book was fun, a mix of media memoir and gay came-of-age story, like what you'd get if David Sedaris gave a shit about upscale ladies who punch.

But I was much more eager to read Andy's latest because I share his obsession with The Andy Warhol Diaries, the 1987 publication of the late pop artist's mundane, gossipy, catty, banal, unintentionally sociologically insightful day-to-day journals. Even without reading a word of Cohen's new work, he already wins for best title of the year. He's also inoculated himself against any bad reviews by embracing an earlier work that he notes was dismissed as “a vapid assortment of name-dropping and celebrity bashing,” which is only true if you're someone who doesn't care that Warhol noted Madonna and Timothy Hutton were hanging out together and accidentally broadcast that fact to the New York Post one day in the '80s.

But this Andy doesn't disappoint, coming across as a Warhol with an agenda, more of a sense of the ridiculous and a libido.

Juicily, Cohen starts the book right when those rumors circulated that he was engaged to straight athlete Sean Avery. Hey, there have been more damaging rumors than to be linked to this. But it's a great way to begin, as it lets you know the author isn't going to hold back. Just a few pages later, he goes after Kevin Spacey—who deserves to be gone after—with this observation:

The Chosen: CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE Creator Dies Comments (0)

Choose-Your-Own-Adventure

Raymond Almiran Montgomery, the man who invented the Choose Your Own Adventure book series in the late '70s, has died in his late seventies. Or, he is alive somewhere, Raymond-Montgomeryhaving successfully faked his own passing. Or, it is a hoax.

Unfortunately, I fear the first choice is the only correct one.

I'm in the process of finishing a memoir for spring publication and had just yesterday mentioned Choose Your Own Adventure. His books brought me a lot of joy.

Autograph Captain Tennille

I was scheduled to appear on a TV talk show to discuss my then-new Encyclopedia Madonnica. I was told the other guests would be Ned & Stacey's Debra Messing and also the Captain and Tennille. Having loved the latter in the '70s, and remember I randomly owned a 45 of theirs, I brought it.

I made sure to say hello to them in the green room. Tennille was very attentive when I told her about my Madonna book (I can only imagine her feelings about Madonna in 1995), and she signed the 45 with a note wishing me luck on it. In a completely separate marker, the Captain signed “hi also.” 

It was clear it would never last.
