Introduced the amazing Bruce Benderson at his reading at Difficult Light Bookstore on Santa Monica Blvd in West Hollywood. I was surprised that the place still had readings, as it looks like its just a gay gift shop and not a book store at all. Before the reading Bruxe, hot photog Dino Dinco and I had drinks and oogled hustlers at The Spotlight Pub. Met the wonderful Alison Pearlman who is a professor of art at Polytechnic University in Pomona. Alison comes from a famed east coast academic family. Bruxe’s excerpt from his new book The Romanian, was flawless. He is an excellent reader, and held the audience spellbound. Bruxe is the first American writer to win the distinguished French Literary prize The Prix de Flore. ]
Why is tired David Sedaris so famous? Bruxe has triple the talent. O I know why David is so successful. He’s risen to the highest levels of mediocrity and thats always rewarded in the US of A.
After the reading Bruce, Dino and I were joined by Jason El Norte for dinner at Numbers. The hustler pickings were pretty slim at this upscale courtesan bistro, but we had a joyous evening creating our own merriment.

Vaginal Davis is in urgent need of a generous art patron. Yes! that could be you.
I'd like an honorarium or stipend of only $9000 a year, so that i continue in my celebrated art practice. The ideal candidate would be a new technologies dork who would like to add some credibility to his plate and establish a brand in the philantropic world. All interested parties should contact Vaginal Davis' assistant Gleeson Brevard at GleeBrevard@aol.com for an audience with the divine Ms. D.
Was away at a writers retreat in the Santa Sarita Hills, came back in time to go to the soiree given by legend's legend Tommy Gear of The Screamers at his gorgeous Koreatown(Serrano & San Marino) townhouse. The gathering was in honor of Thomas Allen Harris whose new film was being screened at the Pan African Film Festival.
Had a nice conversation with Tommy's new roommate who has lived for 17 years in India, and met a woman who just turned 103 years of age. She was quite alert and miraculously unwrinkled. Black don't crack. Lots of other sweet and charming people. Tommy always puts on the best shindigs.
