LWREN-SCOTTL'Wren Scott's tragic end sheds light on a common phenomenon

A surprisingly trenchant article about the high price of seeming to live well in cities like NYC and in glitzy social circles. I can certainly relate to foolishly stretching my finances paper thin.

Mutti-MewseDouble feature

Austin and Howard Mutti-Mewse, authors of I Used to Be in Pictures—a new book about old stars—spend quality time with Jo Good on BBC (starts around an hour and six minutes in). Great if you're a movie buff, great if you're not.

EXCLUSIVE: Behind Venfield 8's Mask + A Gallery Of 5 Never-Before-Published Images Comments (0)

Above, an exclusive gallery of 5 never-before-published Venfield 8 images.
 
Venfield 8 is the moniker of a mystery shooter who loves to take the piss out of consumerist sacred cows, as well out of the conventional gay male aesthetic.
 
Well, with his sorry/not sorry, glam/not glam approach, maybe he would actually put a little more piss into the latter.
 
Whereas most of the men we're presented with (guilty as charged here) are twinks or shiny musclemen with nary a hair on their god-like bodies, Venfield 8 seeks out hairy beasts, men who haven't had their abs ultra-etched by a surgeon, men you can practically smell through the computer screen.
 
David-LaflammeDavid LaFlamme by Venfield 8

He's got a sense of humor, too, teasing his rapidly expanding audience with hints that he may be someone famous, all the while sprinkling his Tumblr (Work Unfriendly) with unique, offbeat imagery, building a catalogue of work that is becoming more illustrative of who he is than any personal information ever could be.

I've been negligent in not interviewing him sooner—I've blogged about him for a couple of years already—because we've become friends. I've met him and stayed with him at his home, and have benefited from his advice and support; it's hard to interview your buddies.

But when your buddies are brilliant artists, you have to step up to the plate...

Quinn-Jaxon

Quinn Christopher Jaxon has been a favorite model of mine for years, and I was lucky enough to shoot him in L.A. this past year. (How have I not released those photos??? I'm like a dragon on a horde when it comes to my photos. Or maybe I just wish I were better and post-production?)

Now, the second book of photos by his manager, Bacchus, is out: Male Temptations is dripping with not only Quinn photos, but also photos of eight other hot subjects. Visit Quinn's site (Work Unfriendly) to snatch this e-book up for only $15...and then browse the unbelievably all-acces items Quinn offers on a daily basis.

A-Visit-to-Priapus

I'm rarely asked to blurb a book. I recall blurbing a book for Brad Gooch in 2001, and then much more recently for the amazing A Visit to Priapus and Other Stories (University of Wisconsin, $26.95) , the latter of which was edited by Jerry Rosco. Rosco was also given a Lambda nod for A Heaven of Words: Last Journals, 1956—1984.

Check out these books, and use the link as a shopping list for other LGBT books you may have missed while reading the new Chelsea Handler, which was probably ghost-written by someone gay. Remember when LGBT publishing was a big deal in the '70s until about the '90s? It's still a big deal, or should be.
