Wow what a weekend, Vancouver! Check my print column next week for a full review of the 560, Vancouver's newest megaclub. My head is still hurting and it was great to see DJ Honey Dijon do her thang once again in our city.
There was also the Xtra Facelift party on Sunday night, which celebrated the new look to Vancouver's favourite LGBT publication. I emceed that bad boy and for an audience of my peers, let me tell you that was one tough room! Yamahama! Xtra's Mark Kowalk was taking photos. If I can get him to send me some, I'll post them here this week.
Now, while licking my wounds, I managed to get my hands on a copy of the newest Vice, which features an interview with you know who by Bruce LaBruce:
(Self-Portrait by Karl Lagerfeld)
Lagerfeld is an enigma wrapped in a puzzle wrapped in a pair of designer sunglasses. Read the interview here.
And now for an excerpt to wet yer whislte:
BLB: I hate it when photographers are like, “Can we have one with your glasses off?” Why? You can see me just fine.
Lagerfeld: I had an interview once with some German journalist—some horrible,
ugly woman. It was in the early days after the communists—maybe a week
after—and she wore a yellow sweater that was kind of see-through. She
had huge tits and a huge black bra, and she said to me, “It’s impolite;
remove your glasses.” I said, “Do I ask you to remove your bra?”
In a word: dewicious.
