From the time the clock struck 10 until last call at 4am last Wednesday at our Good Times party at Eastern Bloc, two of the biggest Led Zeppelin fans on the island of Manhattan, namely me and the lovely DJ Lina, played only the hits, live tracks and rarities of the most epic rock 'n' band ever.
A rare weeknight appearance from creative genius Desi, who I recently discovered has the sexiest forearms around.
My Australian partner in crime from yesteryear named Linda, who is now back in New York City to advance as both a photographer and a gay icon.
Getting ready for a misty mountain hop.
Reenacting a classic scene from Madonna's Truth or Dare.
Actually, all of these beginning photos were probably taken during the same song, since that song was the 12 minute 30 second live version of Kashmir. BRING IT BACK! SING IT BACK!
All of my love to you (and you, on the left).
Next week's Good Times has morphed from Scandinavian night (Annie! The Knife!) to a full on Blonde Ambition fiesta in honor of Harriet Halloway's big stand up show at Gotham Comedy club this Wednesday. And our Harriet after party is hosted by none other than STEPHANIE STONE!
Hairburners extraordinaire Mikey (left) and Adrian (center, with Ryan) will be in attendance when I DJ an early evening cocktails and curling irons gathering at Adrian's salon this and future Thursday from 7 - 10pm at Adrian's De Berardini's Salon at 21st and 7th Ave. Did I mention free booze?
Hey hey mama, said the way you more, gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove.
These hats are EVERYWHERE nowadays. It's like I'm reliving my electric youth all over again.
Licking the tears brought to his eyes by my all time Zeppelin favorite, Tangerine.
Adam (right), delivering a heartfelt birthday present to a slightly intoxicated Jarrod. HAPPY BIRTHDAY JARROD!
Nothing pleases me more than to know that Michael (right) makes an effort to dress up solely for his photo appearing on this here blog. A for effort.
Lifting a leg on his first step towards the stairway to heaven aka our ridiculously long bathroom line.
Jarrod hosted a uber-luxe pre-party birthday dinner at the most reasonable, central and atmospheric restaurant around around: San Loco.
Good times, bad times at Good Times.
Not too many people got into the autumn hippie attire suggested for the party but we're into the Jennifer Beals off-the-shoulder top and boho hat.
This one really couldn't keep his tongue in his mouth. Or maybe his friend's head just tasted like those irresistable Mallomars.
Wanna give you my love.
Tai is a house music and disco lady but we know that deep down, there's a fool in the rain just waiting to get out.
Hysterical Blondeness, 8pm! Eastern Bloc after party, 10pm! Jimmy Im is back in town with a hot dude from Barcelona in tow and ready to thrown down some Syrian beats.
LINISH! Lina told me that DJing a Led Zeppelin was a total dream come true for her. She also told me that she had a "major hard on" for this party like, 10 times through out the evening. Loving the Led Zep top too, bubbeleh.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DJ ADAM! (left.) Are you ready for our Hannukah blow out cuz its only one month away and I'm hoping superjew Ari Gold (right) will help host and light the menorah.
Lina has a magical way of working her tongue into everyone's mouth, including her number one fan Stephen (right).
Looking plucked in plaids.
PURPLE PEOPLE EATER, saying come see Sparber DJ this Friday at DTOX!
Jew-y nose talk from Alon (left) and Yonatan.
The goregously decorated cake for Jarrod and Adam's birthdays. Thanks for partying with us boys. Next time remember to taste some cake before you start doing cement mixer shots.
Eddie "I'm going home now but secretly taking a cab to the Box" Dillard and company.
Was the guy on the bottom trying to hide from the camera or get a good whiff of Damian's knees?
Ramble on, my fine friends.
There was a separate party going on in the DJ booth, commandeered by guest DJ Lina, who was air guitaring and rocking out to each and every track.
Been a long time since they rock 'n' rolled!
Rich King (in the orange) has proposed a Doors night to follow-up our Zepfest. And he will personally bake the brownies and spike the punch.
Outfit of the evening goes to an even bigger Zephead than Lina and myself, Mister Scott Ewalt, who not only wore this authentic concert tee...
...but had the belt to match.
Don't tell Charles that goth week was last week.
A whole, whole lotta love.
Adam and David: don't fuck with us.
Darren donned his best Zeppelin wig as Lina took us to the Houses of the Holy.
Lina to Darren: Your time is gonna come. Did you know these two used to hold court at the old Crow Bar?
Dazed and confused.
Thank you to the marvelous Lina for giving us what is and what should never be. See you next week!
