Board boys are a bit bored…

IMG_3648 Why bored? Cause the waves are down today on the north shore of Oahu.

IMG_3653 Nevertheless, for the discerning eye, there were sights to be appreciated.

IMG_3620 And of course, in Waikiki, there are always fresh offerings at the statue of Duke Paoa Kahinu Mokoe Hulikohola Kahanamoku – aka “The Duke” and “The Big Kahuna.”
IMG_3677 Born in 1890, he lived until 1968. Widely revered among surfers as the most important popularizer of the ancient sport, he was also a five-time Olympic champion swimmer with three gold and two silver medals to his credit.

Waikiki brunch and a bit of olden daze sex…

Nice view! Waikiki beach. When the ex-Texan was here many years ago when he was in the Navy, he met a young Hawaiian guy and they had sex. In the surf and again under a banyan tree. Ex-Tex sure couldn’t take his new pal back to the ship and the boy still lived with his parents. So beach and bushes it was! IMG_3616Mymymymymymy Papaya!IMG_3615Fried Rice. Nice!IMG_3618Peace. Love. Barbecue and eggs Benedict. All at the Outrigger overlooking Waikiki beach. Later: pics of sweet-looking beach boys!

Urban Ore Men’s Toilet Art – Do You Give a Flying Fuck?

20140608-150805-54485096.jpg
Art at Urban Ore in Oakland. We were shopping for a grate for a koi pond cover and a urinal for the Willie Walker memorial Fountain. Found the latter not the former. “Fountain” is a Duchampian euphemism. Water boy historian Walker had a final request. More on that later. For more on this flying fucker, click here.

Hey, Yoo! Great Korean Neo-Pop Public Art: Spider-Man with Morning Wood!

20140608-125709-46629510.jpg
Artist Eunsuk Yoo recently removed his sculptural installation of Spider-man sporting a clearly visible erection. His other choice was to modify it, which he chose not to do. He explained his impetus for making the scandalous piece of art:

“I wanted apply the natural physical phenomenon to a superhero depict whats’s natural in the morning without lies and superficial-ness in a comical way.”

Sounds good to us! He can climb the trees in our forest any time. For a mid-century Japanese Batman taking it up the ass, click here. Really.

Shhh…. Sneak! Preview…of The Mayor of Folsom Street.

20140603-151119-54679517.jpg
The Mayor of Folsom Street! The exhibit at the Center for Sex and Culture opens on Friday and this is installation week. So, here’s the sneak! Above, memorial Leather Jacket by Bill Bowers. Bill is a former Cockette and long-time Queer Underground couturier. Cool art kid Rik Lee is doing his website these days. Check it out! He’s even done stage wear for Keith Richards the Rolling Stone. Dig! Alan dressed Metal bands and did foundation garments for punk fashion queen Vivienne Westwood, so having Bill’s tribute jacket as a centerpiece for this show is pure copacetic.

An assortment of “smalls” – prior to installation. Lots of stories, here!

Worn Levi’s 501s, the crotch has been mended with leather and has worn through yet AGAIN! Damn, Dad.

Happy Birthday, Harvey. You would have been 84 years old. And yesterday was the 35th anniversary of the White Night Riots. The Texan was there and had this to say about that: “I was there. Much has changed. If I were in San Francisco today I would throw Flowers at City Hall!”

Hey, Hippie Birdy, Harvey. Here’s something for you: words, words, words…now glowing pixels maybe making a mark in the brightly-lit on-line world of today. No: no apologies.

What is writing? Staining sheets. While écriture is understood as operating on a symbolic level, the physical act of mark-making is grounded in materiality. Ink on paper, cum on the bedspread and bloody clothing of all sorts share the pull of the gaze…
