Yesterday I saw a bunch of firefighters

…at the launch of their FDNY City of the Brave 2011 calendar which of course I only went to because it was for a good cause.

Nah, okay, I’ll admit it. Because I am gross and have watched too much Sex and the City I was hoping they’d walking around shirtless or AT LEAST in uniform. Instead I got very nice, fully clothed men who mingled with the laypeople, and

1) took pictures,

and 2) signed the calendars. I believe this guy is Mr. September, but I could be wrong. It’s difficult to recognize them with their tops on.

I gotta say, it was the ladies (the many, many ladies) that were showing me skin. Oy, some of the outfits! And some of the places they got signed!

Oh wait, I totally forgot that I wanted a t-shirt.

At Radio City, blah blah blah.

Well, 1) They played songs and stuff:

2) Justine tried to look serious (but ended up looking ADORABLE):





Justine was so excited for YGG that she squealed… but *shhhhhh.* Don’t tell her I told you.

Ready for her close-up

Bye bye.

What’s Iggy Pop up to?

I like to ask this question every so often. This time the answer is “Selling t-shirts at high-end retailer Barneys.”


Yeah, I dunno. Especially since he sort of has a penchant for NOT wearing clothing on his upper body. But he did look dapper (and so sinewy!) last Wednesday at the launch party:

The t-shirts, designed by Archive 1887, are based on moments from Iggy’s gap-toothed hard-livin’ early career. For the record, he couldn’t remember how he lost the tooth.

Anyway, there is some news besides “hey, Iggy Pop likes irony!” In October there’ll be a reissue of the 1977 album Kill City that he did with Stooges guitarist James Williamson.


Until then he’s gonna sell more clothes while strutting around topless.

On fandom and Vincent D’Onofrio

Guys, I miss being a fan.

I miss having posters on my wall, trying to be the tenth caller so I can get tickets to a concert, buying magazines because that awesome actor is on the cover.

I miss the excitement.

Luckily I had the opportunity to re-capture it a couple of weeks ago, with this guy:

Oh wait, not that guy, that’s VJ extraordinaire Matt Pinfield, (the OG of music fans).

I mean this guy:

Vincent D’Onofrio. Yessssssssss.

About seven or eight years ago I went through a HUGE Vincent D’Onofrio phase. There was no poster on my wall, but there was a t-shirt and a nickname: Donna Frio.

[No actual reason for or purpose to the nickname; I just like saying it. Try it!]

Guys, I even watched Mystic Pizza. It was serious.

He’s so attentive.

Anyway I can’t really explain the attraction, except that dude is crazy weird and that’s awesome. I grew out of the phase but for no other reason than time passed. He’s still always in my heart, ya know?

And that’s where the event comes in.

Note the shiny shiny suit.

Vincent is a character actor, and apparently he sometimes plays a boisterous singing cowboy called “George Geronimo Gerkie”. George performed a couple of Thursdays ago at Joe’s Pub to benefit the Heroes Health Project, a foundation that provides detox help to firefighters, policemen, and other uniformed personnel that suffer as a result of toxic exposure in the line of duty. Thursday was specifically dedicated to personnel exposed to meth.

You can say Vincent/George is a “fan” of the Meth Cops project.

George is actually not a a bad singer, with amazing intensity. He’s also tells pretty good stories like the one about Jesus his gay little person car mechanic. George didn’t “have anything against homosexuals,” in fact he told Jesus “Anything you can catch with those little legs, fine.”

Then he sang “It’s Raining Men.”


Okay, it was hokey but his heart was in the right place. Afterward D’Onofrio did a meet-and-greet with the fans that bought premium tix to the benefit, and Ben Foster showed up with a lovely young lady. They R Friendz:

Whoa, as I was writing this Law and Order: Criminal Intent came on in the background. Weird! I think I’m gonna keep watching.

And for y’all, one last pic:
