Polaroid Photographer Jeremy Kost Is Hosting A Book Signing In LA

'Fractured'

I have very exciting news to share with you guys today. My very good friend Jeremy Kost is hosting a book signing of his new photography book Fractured at Bookmarc in West Hollywood, CA on Friday and you MUST come out and meet him (folks in NYC can attend Jeremy‘s book signing at Bookmarc at 400 Bleecker St. on October 21). I’ve known Jeremy for years but I’ve been a fan of his Polaroid photography for much longer. He is truly one of my favorite photographic artists and I’m so excited for the release of his new book Fractured. Large scale prints of some of Jeremy‘s images are currently on display at the CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION in NYC (654 Madison Avenue) until October 27 where a very limited edition of Fractured is being sold. The large scale prints on display at the Calvin Klein Collection are up for auction HERE to partially benefit ACRIA, in conjunction with Paddle 8, in their fight to help those living with HIV/AIDS. Yes, my friend is amazing. Jeremy is graciously sharing the photos featured in the gallery presented here to give you a taste of his work. If you like what you see, you can come out and buy a copy of Fractured and meet Jeremy Kost at his book signing this Friday:


The images shared here are available in the artist’s edition of Fractured which comes with an actual Polaroid photo of your choice (details HERE). Jeremy gave me a large size Polaroid print as a housewarming gift when I moved to LA all those years ago and it has hung in my various homes ever since. He is a very talented photographer and I hope you can come out and meet the man in person. Hopefully I’ll see you at the book signing on Friday!

Seattle Police Release Even More Photos From The Kurt Cobain Death Scene

A sad portrait of Kurt's final days

Last week, the Seattle Police Department revealed that they found a roll of undeveloped film from the 1994 Kurt Cobain death scene. A day or so later, they released a couple photos from that role of film. Today we get to see a bunch more photos from the death scene, including Polaroid photos not included in the newfound undeveloped roll of film, in a new batch of previously unseen photos from the death scene. These new photos feature the suicide note that Kurt left with a pen shoved through it, which really only adds to the sad scene. It’s still hard to believe that Cobain has been gone for 20 years now. Hopefully the release of these photos will finally put that day back in 1994 to final rest.

Sunday With Morrissey

The TV Guide

Last night I was able to attend the Part Time Punkx danceparty at the Echoplex that featured a night of music by The Smiths and Morrissey (DJed by the incomparable Jose Maldonado, frontman of the coverband Sweet and Tender Hooligans and host of Breakfast with The Smiths: The World of Morrissey weekly radio show), which is a danceparty that I have attended many times in the past (most recently last September). Because these parties happen only a few times a year (maybe every 3 or 4 months?), I make every effort to get my buns out there so I can boogie down to the wonderfully maudlin sounds of The Smiths and Morrissey. Earlier in the day, tho, I was able to use a gift certificate I had to get a little bit of pampering done at a Burke Williams spa so all in all, I’m happy to say that my Sunday was a total funday.

Unhappy Birthday, Morrissey

The TV Guide

In celebration of Morrissey‘s birthday yesterday the LA-based Smiths/Morrissey tribute band Sweet and Tender Hooligans performed in concert last night at The Fonda Theater in celebration. Each year, no matter what day of the week May 22 falls on, the Hooligans perform a birthday show where a portion of the proceeds of ticket sales are donated to a local animal shelter (as a gift to animal activist Morrissey). I’m a pretty fond of Sweet and Tender Hooligans so I made my way out to the show last night … and had a blast! More »

A Sunday Funday

The TV Guide

After a very emotional morning, I decided that yesterday was going to be a fun day for me … so I got out of the house and stayed bizzy. I made the trek down to Anaheim, CA to have some fun at Disney’s California Adventure and Disneyland before I met up with some friends for a fun dinner party together. I ended my night at the Echoplex dancing my buns off at the Part Time Punks danceparty that featured music by The Smiths & Morrissey. It was a long, active day … but it was really fun. More »

Disney Day

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a bright, sunny and hot day here in SoCal … which, of course, meant that I had to make my down to Anaheim, CA to spend some time in Disneyland! I wanted to do some serious walking yesterday and I’ve always wanted to take daytime Polaroid photos at Disneyland so yesterday was the day. Despite the heat, I had a pretty fun day snapping away all over the resort. It was Bat’s Day at Disneyland so the park was teeming with goths dressed in crushed velvet, leather, long sleeves … all in BLACK! I have no idea how they managed to endure the heat but all I saw was smiling faces. More »

Here Come The Grooms To Be

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very fantastic day for David and me here in NYC. Having just flown in from London the night before, we got a good night’s sleep that left us refreshed for a gloriously sunny Sunday. David took me to his favorite running shoe store JackRabbit so that I could get fitted for running shoes … because I have committed to participating in a half marathon in September. Afterward, we were met by a bunch of our fave NYC peeps at a little get together organized by David’s sisters Lara and Eden to celebrate our engagement. It was a very full and very fun day. More »
