Party Like It's 1999: Vintage Footage Of Fire Island Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-02-04 at 4.23.26 PM

My pal Alan Light has struck (gold) again, this time uploading some footage from 1998 and 1999 shot on Fire Island. Again, this shouldn't be such a flashback, but it feels like that anyway—almost 20 years.

First impressions (other than seeing some people I know!) is: Isn't it interesting how much less prepared people are when faced with a recording device? Today, people are on at all times. Also: HGH and other steroids and enhancements were not all the rage just yet—the bodies are much less inflated.

In this video, there's plenty of local color, including shirtless guys, dancing queens and shots of the Pavilion (that burned in 2011):

Keep reading for the other two ...

My pal Alan Light just posted this video from 1996 of a comedy duo at The Duplex in the Village. Nice little time capsule. Feels like gay Vaudeville ...

Enjoying The View: Stage-Dooring Russell Tovey Comments (0)

Was so glad I caught Arthur Miller's A View from the Bridge tonight with my pals Kurt and Warren. The production was riveting from word one and has the most effective use of timing, flawless performances (Mark Strong as Eddie has to win something) and a knock-out of an ending.

Russell Tovey was adorable in his role, charming in a way one that one could understand Eddie would come to loathe. Killer body on this one, and he was a sweetheart with us afterward. The blond works for him.

Tovey also graciously accepted a gift from a girl who was waiting for him—dog treats for his dog Rocky. We hear he is known to take Rocky (not a service animal) into Joe Allen sometimes (which if you're not a New Yorker is a famous after-theater restaurant).

Darren Criss was at the show but refused to pose for a selfie with Kurt because  he felt he would then have to do a lot of them (literally nobody else cared, booooo, but he was ultra-nice in saying it), and we also spotted Lois Smith and Fred Weller.

Exact Opposite Of The Boyfriend Experience: Rentboy's CEO Indicted Comments (0)

Jeffrey Hurant, the CEO of Rentboy.com, has been indicted on one charge of promoting prostitution and money-laundering charges. You will recall that back in August 2015, he and several Rentboy employees were arrested in a Dept. of Homeland Security (huh???) sting.

As Queerty notes:

We hope there’s a rational ending to this developing sideshow, but things aren’t looking great.

If you agree with this malicious prosecution, I'd be curious to know why. “It ain't legal” isn't good enough, especially if “420 friendly” is in your Grindr profile. If you're against this turn of events, feel free to contribute to Rentboy's legal-defense fund.

After the jump, you'll find a nine-year-old (!) video from a Rentboy.com-sponsored release party for Boy Culture (the movie) ...

Signs Of The Times Comments (0)

Unnamed

Broadway Deli & Bagels is a small eatery right next door to me. Have never been in there, as it's one step less fancy than a basic diner, but it's always had my attention because I remember discovering signs outside commanding people not to walk dogs anywhere near it, and have seen staff shoo people away from sitting against a ledge that I think has since been removed ... or even standing near the door.

I just recently noticed these latest two signs.

Really, assholes?
