Are they robots that look like Marco Dapper? Or Brent Van Zant? Or Joseph Sayers? Or Wally Szczerbiak? Or possibly the ever-popular Chad White?

Hmmmmm? ;)  :P

You can get lost on that site.  The queens behind it have since moved to L.A. and have stopped updating it, but boy did they do a good job at cataloguing the culture and music of a whole scene.  I'm surprised I had not shared that before.  I continuously refer to it to keep updating my download list of classic house and dance music.

It's one of many ballroom/voguing websites, but this one is one of the best.  I do take pride, though, in my initial concept for the House of Shade site that I designed and built but never completed...

If you're interested...you can see it HERE.

yes








While we're in the process of dishing out Ballroom stuff, I came upon this today...

How Do I Look?


Judging from the film's list of screenings, it looks like it's just about finished moving about the US. One can snag the DVD though. The film has not escaped the notice of AfterElton and the Logo crowd (which says something good about them). Of course, it escaped MY notice for a bit over two years which... um... doesn't say much about me at all except that I'm slow.

Really slow.

Oh -- the film has a MySpace page (doesn't everybody?)

I was involved in the making of that movie.  Although Wolfgang never gave me credit for production, I was the one instrumental in getting him interviews with the "legendary" icons of the ballroom community and exposure outside New York to the wider ballroom scene nationwide.  I promised to beat her silly for that, but the last time I saw him was at Willi Ninja's funeral and it would have been unseemly to kick her ass.  He did partially make up for it by giving me a complimentary copy of the movie.

Oh, and I was not impressed with the final result.  I had sponsored two screenings of the film and the original footage he brought to the first screening was unbelievably moving, well executed, and just BETTER than the final product.  For what it's worth, Paris is Burning by Jenny Livingston remains the quintessential gay ballroom documentary to this day with many of the original cast also featuring in How Do I Look...even if it is rather dated.
