Killian James, a great-looking porn actor who began his career in 2013 and retired in 2016 in a cloud of controversy over allegedly drug-fueled Twitter wars, racial slurs and feuds, was reported to have died yesterday — but it may turn out that he is very much alive.

Str8UpGayPorn (Work Unfriendly) reported that Ian Greene, a friend of Killian's and a fellow performer, tweeted his grief over the death, which he found out about scond-hand; there was therefore no confirmation that Killian was deceased, as the site duly noted.

Later, Greene retweeted an image purporting to show James texting with a friend about the news, and mocking Greene for tweeting it:

Best Friends Forever: A Review Of Nora Burns's DAVID'S FRIEND Comments (0)

My cultural benefactors John & Sheldon — not really, but they do get me to go see things I'd otherwise not get motivated to see — invited me to David's Friend, the show by Unitard comic Nora Burns, a few weeks ago. I bought my ticket knowing next to nothing about it. By the time I entered the Club at La Mama this weekend, it was already touted as a hot ticket.

Check out my 2015 Unitard review here!

In 60 minutes, Burns (pictured) provides an unapologetically sentimental Bioremembrance of the original best friend forever, David, a fellow Massachusetts teen who joined her in running off to NYC at the end of the '70s, and the beginning of what would beecome a live-fast-die-young adventure.

Except Nora survived.

Over time, the eventual artist has been driven to memorialize their toss-my-salad days, when she stripped and he hustled and both did so many drugs this might be why Quaaludes became scarce, and when both became friendly with the types of artists drawn to the city back when it was seedily affordable. She is reliving that era onstage in a joyous way that gives contact euphoria and a sense of connection to the audience, and also in a way that sloppily and then — with unexpected precision — provides a sketch of her fallen friend and their eternal friendship so vivid it's hard to believe he wasn't a member of the cast.

At times, it's as if she is taking our hands and putting them into her side; her approach to show and tell is to skip both and instead to conjure and to make manifest.

The story is deceptively slight; the two danced their asses off. In fact, they met dancing on a speaker and seemingly only climbed down when he eventually became sick with AIDS and when she, later on, settled down with a husband and children. Their time on the speaker sounds like a mad dash from one party to another, and from the safety of suburbia to the more interesting, more dangerous nooks and crannies of a city that no longer exists.

While nostalgic and affectionate, the show is never whitewashed — plenty of STIs, jealous fits and jobs from hell are recalled, and her Valentine to NYC is spiked by a recurring image of the city in the '70s and '80s as a pile of junk teeming with rats and predators. But if you're one of those people who thinks the city is now a Giulianified shell of its former self, you will understand her longing for not just her friend but their grimy stomping grounds.

Nora's delivery is utterly sincere. It is also funny, except for when it veers into Screen Shot 2017-02-07 at 1.43.25 PM sadness, when it becomes difficult to imagine how she puts herself through such a naked (and public) connection to still-raw grief each performance.

She is so uncompromisingly honest, it might make you squirm when she cheerfully announces she needs gay men to provide the witty Oscar banter these days (she's got to be kidding! she's hysterical!) or when she drives home that she is a classic fag hag. There is a degree of supplication, but I think it's also just a reflection of her devotion to the best person she ever met.

David is beautifully remembered in this warm and scrappy show in a way he may never have been able to imagine, knowing Nora as he did then — and never getting to know Nora as she was later, is now.

Due to an outbreak of raves, David's Friend — directed by Adrienne Truscott and also featuring Billy Hough —has been extended. Along with other lessons, one the show offers is: Spend your time wisely. This applies to theater, too.

********************

Separate from my review, something that struck me about the show is that it is another example of something that elicits from me a longing to have been a part of the era that came just before me, which is also always laced with gratitude that I barely missed the inevitability of AIDS.

Hearing of David's recklessly fabulous life at Studio 54 and strolling Manhattan's dives and clinics in silver hotpants and leather definitely ignited that dormant fascination, as did the name-dropping of the ubiquitious Patrick McMullan (such a dishy appearance his name makes in the show, and he later shot it) and also of Gavin Geoffrey Dillard, the so-called Naked Poet.

More On The Murder Of Escuelita's Big Ben Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2017-01-09 at 9.57.41 AM(Image via WPIX)

More details are emerging about the murder of Savyon “Big Ben” Zabar in NYC last week. Zabar, the former owner of the late, great gay club Escuelita.

While early reports suggested cops were seeking his masseur (WPIX's original written piece used the nonsensical phrase “male masseuse” over and over; its video report uses the correct masseur, but laughably notes the masseur also may have been a “gentleman caller,” which isn't even a euphemism for hustler, it just means someone is a suitor ... I kept thinking of The Glass Menagerie!), new info suggests they may also be looking at two robbers who took cash from Zabar and were caught on video months ago — men against whom Zabar declined to file charges.

The video from WPIX shows one neighbor calling Ben “gentle,” with another busybody neighbor going OFF on him.

I'm actually sympathetic to the busybody in that it would appear, even from chatting with some of Ben's friends, that he had plenty of very shady dealings, but it's hard to stomach hearing this guy sounding so triumphant that Ben got killed, especially since part of the man's reasoning is that “he always hung out with the worst of the worst, from tattoos to weird haircuts to pants down to here — things you don't want in your building.”

Guess I'd be more upset that they were mobsters, thugs and drug addicts than worrying about their fashion sense.

Watch after the jump ...
