Roughly forty Ozzy Osbourne fans invited to a pre-party before the Ozzy/Rob Zombie concert in Fargo, North Dakota, were greeted with an unexpected surprise: Handcuffs! Invitations were sent out to people who ignored court summons, didn’t pay child support, failed to pay fines, etc. Approximately forty fans responded to the invite and attended the bash, which was held at the concert venue by PDL Productions. Little did they know, PDL stood for “Paul D. Laney,” a county sheriff, and that all those meaty guys wearing PDL T-shirts were actually deputy sheriffs, probation officers and local DEA members.

It is being reported in the British press Sunday that the men approached the royal household and suggested that they had video tape of a royal taking part in a sex act.
British newspapers have also said that the alleged blackmailers claimed to have tape of a royal aide snorting cocaine supplied by a member of the royal family.

Since Jimmy was in India this week (!), I didn't get to do much mingling with the Eastern Bloc patrons, though I would have liked to get my mingle on with the fellow in the middle.
I'm pretty sure that the guy on the left is the straight coworker of one of my friends. I mean, doesn't the bracelet give him away?
Yes, he's trying to grow a beard. Give it two more weeks to grow in and he'll be the toast of the East Village.
Bartender Sammy's Pac-Man joystick yet again the hit of the night.
Binh! This one works all the live long day, every day, so it's always a joy to see his face, especially next to a big cock.
I wonder if iPhones are as common place in other parts of the country as they are in gay New York City bars.
Ryan (right) is on his well on his way to becoming a super famous pop music producer with the likes of Xenomania. He will tell you time and time again that the new Sugababes/Girls Aloud/anything by Kylie Minogue single is about to "change the world."
Shockingly, I don't think I've ever posted a photo taken inside the Eastern Bloc bathrooms, usually because they're not very family oriented.
I see nipple!
Beau (left) and Yuki James are two of my favorites. Yuki gives good hugs too.
This picture reminds me of that Sesame Street song that went, "one of these things is doing his own thing."
My best Swedish friend Johan (center) and his two buddies Fatface (left) and Seb are in town this week for a wedding. They're all straight, though nobody seemed to notice since they're from Sweden and all.
A) That guy totally looks like he could be from Sweden as well, and B) the chick totally looks like Uffie. Pop the glock, y'all.
Matt (right) brought his college friends out, who happened to be visiting from LA. The guy in the middle was like, some LA friends of mine read your blog, which virtually makes me BICOSTAL!
David is the bestest. He is also looking for an apartment, so if you have any leads, send them my way or his.
Bartender Sammy chopped off all of his hair and I'm liking his look. He'll be in a speedo next week as a lifeguard for our Halloween fiesta and you should be too.
Talking while dancing. Or is he singing? P.S. - Gary (in the glasses) looks so pensive and proper.
Chaz (left) gets really winky when he's drunk. He also likes to stand in front of my cd's in the DJ booth, which makes it kind of hard to DJ sometimes.
Danny and his hot kicks. It's poppin.
This week, Yuki told me a anecdote about seducing unsuspecting straight men at his gym, which totally makes sense since Yuki is the hotness.
Kevin helped out with camera duties this week. At point, he was like, THEYRE ALL COMING OUT BLURRY! and I was like, no they're not and snapped this "test pic."
Joe (right) is glad to see my Canon go bye-bye, since he always ended up looking orange in the light of my flash.
Gay college frat dudes dot com?
I asked this one where he's been hiding since I've never seen him out on a Wednesday but I can't remember what he answered.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID DAVIS! (right) You don't look a day over 15. In other David Davis-related news, doesn't this porn star kind of look like David's doppelganger?
Ritter (center) sang show tunes on a cruise ship for nine months last year. That's why he tends to make theatrical gestures when posing.
Michael T. (left) and I go waaaaaaaaaay back to his DJ days at Global 33, a now-shuttered tapas restaurant and bar on 2nd avenue.
Now that we've finally captured his true colors, I'd like to you to know that Joe (right) is not black. He's Blatino, one of my favorite words of all time.
Lapo (right) has such beautiful bone structure. I promised I wouldn't post any photos of him, but I couldn't help but post HALF a photo of him.
Yup. It's that time of the night. Hope to see you next week for our big Halloween blowout. Come dressed in sexy swimwear or a scary suicide costume. It's free all night and we'll be having a costume contest and drink specials all night long.

East Village restaurant (downstairs) and cabaret/party space (upstairs) closed its doors Sunday night after a two-year run on Avenue A. When Mo's opened, I was stoked to have a jewish-y restaurant right around the corner. I quickly realized that the food was both greasy and expensive and never really wanted to go back except for two holiday parties for two different companies. And those were mostly about the free drinks. Bye Mo's!
Today, I shockingly discovered that when you google "manhunt anonymous," no such support group exists online or elsewhere. I'm quite certain I'm not the only person who has suffered from such an addiction. I'm just too lazy to start up a support group on my own. Who's with me?

Gimme More (Lil Mama remix)
Gimme More (Eli Grayson mix ft. Amanda Blank)
1) Screengrab from Hole's 1998 video for Malibu (above), where Court is clearly envisioning trees ablaze, probably after being dumped by Ed Norton or something. (Remember when she broke windows at her ex-boyfriend's house?!)
2) This week, fires scorch 1200 acres of Malibu, destroying three houses and damaging nine in the multi-million home neighborhood of the rich and famous, according to the NY Times.
Coincidence? I think not. Witness yet another screen grab below where Court's wrath clearly sparks fires across.
Today's lesson: Don't fuck with Courtney Love. Look where it landed Kurt Cobain.
There's only two things better than M.I.A.'s Paper Planes track--the Bun B remix and Esau Mwamwaya's refix. He's one of the dudes in the UK's Radioclit crew. His take on the soon-to-be-classic Diplo riddim is perfection.
Esau Mwamwaya - Tengazako
Now he makes weird rap videos about how he loves cocaine. And I secretly still love Simon.
Watch his latest video here.

A drunken Chaz (left) rolled through with his crew after attending a Radar Magazine party. Chris (right) is celebrating his birthday this week and just got laid off from his job. Anyone hiring?
Mustache Ride DJ Kevin (not pictured) took lots of the blog pics last night, including this one, when I was like, get those guys there! Hotness!
Frank (left) also got fired from his job this week for tossing a company-branded polo shirt into a company trash can. He's into graphic design. Ask me for his email.
Bartender Sammy subbed in for Darren, who is in Berlin until our big Halloween party two weeks from now. Sammy likes doing Candis Cayne impressions, pictured here.
Oh, and whenever Sammy bartends, he hooks up a joystick that has Pac Man built into it. Hours of fun, unless you're Chaz, who is passed out on the couch here.
Everyone kept asking me who this guy is and I was like, never seen him before in my life. Or have I?
Fashion tip: animal print scarves are the new Palestinian scarves.
Even though it was 75 degrees last night, people like to dress up in autumn clothing like the guy on the left and then sweat it out all evening.
This guy, Zach, actually had a shirt on under that vest but voluntarily stripped it off for the camera. I wasn't complaining.
In fact Zach looked so nice, I think I'll post him twice.
In the SWV vs. Jade showdown, most patrons agreed that SWV would kick Jade's ass in a heartbeat. In the end, I played more SWV anyway.
I only have one thing to say about this: FIRECROTCH!
Satya (left) told me he is falling in love with Dazzle Dancer Cameron (right). I told him they were perfect for each other because they are both performers. I think he was offended by that.
Josh (right) used to live on my block and go to my gym, but now he has joined the ranks of the handsome Brooklyn gays such as Chris (left).
"You did NOT just insult Hillary."
What better to do when you get fired than get really really drunk at Good Times?!
No Michael, I hate what YOU'RE wearing.
Photographic proof that Good Times is slowly turning into a twee lesbo get together.
Actually, I usually have horrible gaydar when it comes to ladies loving ladies, but something about her denim jacket and longing gaze gives her away.
I didn't introduce myself to so many strangers last night, so I can't tell you much about these cats except that Josh (center) is majorly rocking a leather Freddie Mercury cap.
Rachel (right) loves bringing her straight dates out to places I DJ and demanding that I play Ghost Town DJs' My Boo.
Ooooh. They both have on snazzy scarves!
Andrew was like, "I have total veto power over bad photos of me," so I'm hoping he doesn't object to this one.
"Let's text and see what's going on at Vlada."
Jason (left) was also quite drunk after the Radar party. Patrick (center) was quite happy about that.
This guy on the left is awesome. After the place emptied out, he was like, WHERE'D EVERYONE GO?! and then just went about drinking his drink till more people showed up.
I heart Joe Mejia. He also knows every single person who has ever worked at a magazine in New York City.
Ironic Brooklyn hipster or genuine Texan cattle herder?
These guys are probably looking at this week's HX, p. 40, where yours truly is the featured DJ of the week! Check it out or scan it and email it to me so I can post it.
DJ Jimmy spun a great set till it deteriorated into Blind Melon's No Rain and the Violent Femmes' Blister in the Sun. He's off to India this weekend so I'm flying solo for the next two weeks.
Me and Tommy (right), right as I began my Lil Kim and Foxy Brown mini set. FREE FOXY!
If it's 3am, you can be sure that someone is dancing on the pole at Eastern Bloc.
Former Wonderbar owner Jack toasted my party and posed for another pic, since last time I snapped him he was eating greasy pizza on the street.
You know what that orange shirt means? Halloween in two weeks at Eastern Bloc, bitches! We're thinking Swim Team theme. Or you can get creative and think up a water related death costume. Flier to follow. See you next week!
