Slam

Salim Gauwloos, one of Madonna's most memorable Blond Ambition Tour dancers (then known as Slam), is now a serious choreographer, and he's teasing a new project via his Facebook. Seems he's going to appear as “Poseidon” in a video project.

After the jump, you'll get a glimpse of the amazing adventure this Poseidon has in store for you when he's buck-naked...

It's almost worth watching Julian Serrano in spite of having to listen to that tuneless J.Lo mess. Wait, it's totally worth it...

BLUE, Period: An Interview With Ricky Rebel Comments (0)
  Ricky-Rebel Rickey-Rebel-NA Ricky Rebel Blue Album, montage, by Graphics Metropolis, web Ricky-Rebel-surprise Ricky-Rebel-Blue

Ricky Rebel is described as a sort of Adam Lambert/Lady Gaga hybrid, but in spite of his young age, he's been in the industry longer than both of them. I first encountered Ricky when he was in the boy No_authority_shirtless_group_in_underwear1band No Authority (pictured in underwear), a group signed to Madonna's Maverick (RIP!) and mentored by Michael Jackson.

I would've done anything for NA (and gave them crazy amounts of coverage) if only because their manager had once been in an episode of The Golden Girls, but I also really liked the boys themselves.

Ricky was a stand-out in the teen pop scene, a true showman, so it was not surprising to me 10 years later when he re-emerged as a solo artist with a major dance hit (“Geisha Dance”) and a thoughtfully crafted, musically sound point of view.

Now, Ricky is releasing The Blue Album, filled with adventurous dance music that isn't a guilty pleasure but an unqualified pleasure. He is a visual artist who does not overly rely on his admittedly fun razzle and on-stage dazzle, but one whose music you could enjoy with your eyes closed.

I was happy to chat with Ricky all these years after we crossed paths at the teen magazine I ran; I've always wanted to do follow-up interviews with the kids I worked with, so getting to debrief one who's gone on to bigger and better things was a real pleasure...

The Reviews Are In: 10 Vintage, Personal Takes On NYC Theater Comments (0)

Playbill-Chicago copy

Made a fun find at the Broadway Flea Market yesterday—a stack of old Playbills from some guy (I assume) who seems to have seen every show on the boards from the '60s until at least two years ago. What makes his collection special is he jotted down his reviews on the covers...and at times they're hilariously malevolent, if not also downright wrong. The original Chicago? Hated it. Torch Song Trilogy? Too much mugging and the fat fag with a gravel voice never could be believed.

Check them out below (all of the below is quoted from his writing)—some of them are priceless...
