Taking advantage of someone’s business trip in #amsterdam
I wrote about the Mudd Club, a former New York City venue which was like downtown's answer to Studio 54. Gritty and glam and a history of notable guests like Basquiat, Bowie, Grace Jones, Debbie Harry, Fab Five Freddie, and the B-52s. Wish I could have visited. Link in bio.

Roman holiday with my cousin: the coliseum, Spanish steps, San Lorenzo, Pantheon, and Trevi Fountain
Found a semi-quiet corner in Lindenthaler Park, Cologne
25 years ago, the @smashingpumpkins
released "Today," and I wrote about the single's anniversary for @floodmagazine
. While it's not my favorite SP track ever, I remember it being like an announcement: the band had arrived and this was their first hit. Anyhow, there's more to the back story and the song still has relevance--well--today. 😉 Link in bio. Photo: IMDb.
I wrote about the extraordinary NOLA-based band @tankandthebangas
as they release their new single today, “Spaceships.” Pretty much guaranteed to shake your booty. Link in bio
I’ve aged 35 years by eating here. The grandma-oma orgasm that is Cafe Wahlen.
The HBO film “Gia” starring Angelina Jolie came out 20 years ago so for @dazed
I wrote about Gia Carangi, considered to be the world’s first supermodel who was openly queer. Her rise to the top of the industry was fast and short lived due to her drug addiction. She died at age 26 from AIDS complications. Link to story in bio. #giacarangi #supermodel
For fashion month and now on @crfashionbook
I wrote about the semi-secret, celeb enclave #restaurantdavé
which closed earlier this year. Davé hosted and entertained his famous customers and his crimson red walls had photographic proof. Link in bio (Et merci mille fois @taidavecheung
