John Palatinus in person -- Los Angeles, June 8th -- Saturday night!

 JOHN PALATINUS
Mid-Century Male Physique Photography
Exhibition June 8 - June 29, 2013
Artist Reception Saturday June 8, 7-10 pm
 drkrm is pleased to present the male physique photography of John Palatinus, one of the pioneering physique photographers of the 1950's. Along with Lon of New York, Bruce of Los Angeles, and Bob Mizer of Athletic Model Guild, he helped create a whole new genre of male photography. He was a major influence on Robert Mapplethorpe and may be one of the last living photographers from the 1950's golden era of physique photography. 

This exhibition will be on view from June 8th through June 29th, 2013 with an Artist reception on Saturday, June 8 from 7-10pm.

John Palatinus is perhaps one of the last living male physique photographers of the 1950s. He was one of a handful of photographers who documented the male body through photography of semi-naked, body-proud weightlifters of the time. His first shoot was done in 1951 in his own living room in Indiana. Palatinus crafted his own photographic style which was recognisable by his use of light and minimal background. The pictures echoed Palatinus' influences, who included Horst P Horst and George Platt Lynes, while documenting a sub-culture of body perfection and hyper-masculinity that emerged in the post-war era.

His photographs were published in numerous bodybuilding magazines of the era, most notably Tomorrow's Man, a pocket-sized publication featuring males with posing straps or other coverings for their privates.

In 1954 Palatinus moved to New York, and set up on West 13th Street in Greenwich Village, taking male physique photographs and distributing them to eager collectors. He continued to be featured in "TM" and did a thriving mail-order business, selling his photographs nationwide. In 1958, Palatinus started shooting and selling full-frontal nude photos through the mail. This proved to be an unfortunate move. His studio was raided by the US Postal Inspectors in cooperation with the New York Police Department and all of his photographs, original negatives, cameras and equipment were confiscated, never to be returned. Palatinus was very effectively put out of business. After a trial, he was convicted not of distribution of so-called pornography, but of conspiracy, a misdemeanor charge, and spent no time in jail. "When I was in court in 1959," Palatinus recalls, "The judge said: 'by today's standards this work is considered pornography, but who knows? In 50 years' time it may be considered art' and that really is true."

Palatinus has lived long enough to see his work become appreciated by new circles. The nineties saw a huge resurgence in the collection of Vintage Male Physique photography, spurred on by a voracious online community. Palatinus now lives in Palm Springs, California and exhibits his work thoughout the world.

CHRISTOPHER RICE
Writer
Christopher Travis Rice (born March 11, 1978) is an American author. Rice has written five best-selling novels: A Density of Souls, The Snow Garden, Light Before Day, Blind Fall, and his latest book, The Moonlit Earth, which was published in April 2010 by Scribner.

Christopher Rice comes from a family of authors. His parents are Anne Rice and the late poet Stan Rice; his aunt, Alice Borchardt, is a noted writer. He is also friends with fellow author Clive Barker. Unlike his famous mother, he does not write horror novels, but considers his books to be thrillers.
Rice has lived in New Orleans, Louisiana and is a 1996 graduate of the prestigious Isidore Newman School. Rice went on to attend Brown University and the Tisch School of the Arts. He did not graduate from either school; instead, he moved to Los Angeles to explore writing screenplays.
Rice now lives in Los Angeles, California.

Rice is gay, and his works consist of descriptions of contemporary American life for the gay male. When asked in 2002 about "being pegged a 'gay writer,'" he replied:
That's not what I do. I might be more open to that label if I hadn't introduced ensemble casts of characters. Granted, A Density of Souls is as close to a gay book as you can get. It revolves around a character's homosexuality, and others are described in terms of their reaction to the one character's sexuality. In that sense it's at the core of the book. The Snow Garden is about identity. With this book, I'm trying to shrug off the term "gay" author.
Nonetheless, Rice is proud of his large following in the gay community, explaining "it was incredibly rewarding when I got a huge positive response from the character Stephen in The Density of Souls. More than a thousand young gay men contacted me and said that I captured what it was like for them going through those years. That means everything to me.
Rice also writes a regular feature for the LGBT-related biweekly news magazine The Advocate called "Coastal Disturbances," in which he discusses various topics.

Esther Williams, Swimming Champion Who Became a Movie Star, Dies at 91

By ALJEAN HARMETZ
Esther Williams, a teenage swimming champion who became an enormous Hollywood star in a decade of watery MGM extravaganzas, died on Thursday in Beverly Hills, Calif. She was 91.
Her death was announced by her publicist, Harlan Boll.

From “Bathing Beauty” in 1944 to “Jupiter’s Darling” in 1955, Ms. Williams swam in Technicolor pools, lakes, lagoons and oceans, cresting onto the list of Top 10 box-office stars in 1949 and 1950.

Esther Williams had one contribution to make to movies — her magnificent athletic body,” the film critic Pauline Kael wrote. “And for over 10 years MGM made the most of it, keeping her in clinging, wet bathing suits and hoping the audience would shiver.

In her autobiography, “The Million Dollar Mermaid” (1999), Ms. Williams spoke of movie stardom as her “consolation prize,” won instead of the Olympic gold medal for which she had yearned. At the national championships in 1939, Ms. Williams, who was 17, won three gold medals and earned a place on the 1940 United States Olympic team. But Hitler invaded Poland, and the 1940 Olympics were canceled with the onset of World War II.

At a time when most movies cost less than $2 million, MGM built Ms. Williams a $250,000 swimming pool on Stage 30. It had underwater windows, colored fountains and hydraulic lifts, and it was usually stocked with a dozen bathing beauties. Performing in that 25-foot-deep pool, which the swimmers nicknamed Pneumonia Alley, Ms. Williams ruptured her eardrums seven times.


By 1952, the swimming sequences in Ms. Williams’s movies, which were often elaborate fantasies created by Busby Berkeley, had grown more and more extravagant. For that year’s “Million Dollar Mermaid,” she wore 50,000 gold sequins and a golden crown. The crown was made of metal, and in a swan dive into the pool from a 50-foot platform, her head snapped back when she hit the water. The impact broke her back, and she spent the next six months in a cast.

Ms. Williams once estimated that she had swum 1,250 miles for the cameras. In a bathing suit, she was a special kind of all-American girl: tall, lithe, breathtakingly attractive and unpretentious. She begged MGM for serious non swimming roles, but the studio’s response was, in effect, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Audiences rejected her in dramas like “The Hoodlum Saint” (1946) and “The Unguarded Moment” (1956). Her only dry-land box-office success was “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” (1949), with Ms. Williams as the owner of a baseball team whose players included Frank Sinatra and Gene Kelly (although even in that film, she was seen briefly in a swimming pool).

The men who played opposite her in a dozen lightweight comedies full of misunderstandings and mistaken identity were almost interchangeable. Johnny Johnston in “This Time for Keeps” (1947), John Carroll in “Fiesta” (1947) and Peter Lawford in “On an Island With You” (1948) were male ingΓ©nues whom the studio was hoping might turn into stars. In terms of star power, she was matched on screen only by Victor Mature, with whom she had an affair when they were making “Million Dollar Mermaid,” and by MGM’s all-American boy, Van Johnson, who wooed or was wooed by her in “Thrill of a Romance” (1945), “Easy to Wed” (1946), “Easy to Love” (1953) and “Duchess of Idaho” (1950).

Just relax,” she recalled Mr. Johnson telling her after the first few days on “Thrill of a Romance.” “It’s your naturalness that’s going to make you a star.

Esther Jane Williams was born in Los Angeles on Aug. 8, 1921, the fifth and last child of Lou and Bula Williams. Her father was a sign painter; her maternal grandparents had come west to Utah in a Conestoga wagon after the Civil War. Unwanted by a mother who was tired of raising children, Esther was turned over to her 14-year-old sister, Maurine. The family’s chief breadwinner was her brother Stanton. A silent movie star at the age of 6, Stanton died of a twisted intestine when he was 16 and Esther was 8.

That summer she learned to swim. From the beginning, Ms. Williams wrote in her autobiography, “I sensed the water was my natural element.” She counted wet towels at the neighborhood pool to earn the nickel a day it cost to swim there. The male lifeguards taught her the butterfly, a stroke then used only by men, and, at the Amateur Athletic Union championships in 1939, the butterfly won her a gold medal in the 300-meter medley relay.

Three years earlier, 20th Century Fox had signed the Norwegian ice skater Sonja Henie, a three-time Olympic gold medalist, and turned her into a movie star in a series of skating movies, and Louis B. Mayer, who ran MGM, wanted to match Fox. The studio found Ms. Williams performing in Billy Rose’s Aquacade at the San Francisco World’s Fair. She was, as she put it, learning to “swim pretty” in tandem with Johnny Weissmuller, a former Olympic gold medalist who was already the star of MGM’s “Tarzan” films.

At first, Ms. Williams was one of two dozen MGM contract players who had, she wrote, “a look, a voice, a sparkle or a smolder.” Few lasted more than a year. To test audience reaction to her, Ms. Williams was given the role of Mickey Rooney’s love interest in an Andy Hardy movie. Half a dozen starlets — including Lana Turner, Judy Garland and Kathryn Grayson — had already been tested that way. Fan mail response to the film, “Andy Hardy’s Double Life” (1942), was unequivocal: Audiences loved the girl in the two-piece swimsuit.

At 17, Ms. Williams married Leonard Kovner, a pre-med student whom she supported by working as a stock girl at a fancy department store. It was the first of her four marriages, and he would demand $1,500 — all the money she had saved from the Aquacade — before he would agree to a divorce.

Her 13-year second marriage, to the singer Ben Gage, would bring her three children and cost her considerably more money. According to Ms. Williams, Mr. Gage frittered away $10 million of her money on alcohol, gambling and failed business ventures. He also neglected to pay taxes and left her in hock to the Internal Revenue Service for $750,000 by the time they divorced in 1959. By then, Ms. Williams wrote, “I was 37 and there was not much mileage left in my movie career.”

A decade later she married Fernando Lamas, the Argentine-born actor and director, who had helped her to swim the English Channel in “Dangerous When Wet” (1953). He was the first man who gave Ms. Williams money rather than taking it from her, but he exacted a heavy price. Her three children were not allowed to live with them or even to come to their wedding.

That marriage lasted until Mr. Lamas’s death in 1982. Six years later she married Edward Bell, a professor of French literature 10 years her junior, with whom she introduced a collection of swimwear. She also put her name on a line of successful above ground swimming pools.

She is survived by Mr. Bell; a son, Benjamin Gage; a daughter, Susan Beardslee; three stepsons, the actor Lorenzo Lamas, Tima Alexander Bell and Anthony Bell; three grandchildren; and eight step-grandchildren.

Asked once who her favorite leading man was, Ms. Williams offered a simple and unsurprising response: “The water.

The Outsider 
Dir. Delbert Mann, 1961
"Tony Curtis's 1961 The Outsider, about an American Indian who was a hero of Iwo Jima, told the heartbreaking story of a soldier who mourned his buddy, missing in action. He shed tears drunkenly as the soundtrack played Where are you? You went away without me. I thought you cared bout me. In those homophobic days, it seemed like a great male-male love story."

"Do the Fonzie" from Happy Days 
(1977)

SONG. "Leather Tuscadero" (Suzi Quatro) did several songs on Happy Days (loved the ultra-square backing by "Joanie"/Erin Moran), but I liked her take on "All Shook Up" best of all as far as covers go. No wonder Joanie considered leaving the safety of home to go on the road with the dykelicious doo-wopper. But the dopey "Do the Fonzie" was what captured my imagination, especially Henry Winkler's falsetto, "One more time!"

CHOICE LYRIC: 
"Do the Fonzie
Oh, c'mon, do the Fonzie with me!"

“Sex And The City”‘s 15 Hottest Guys

From:  The Backlot
 June 6th, 1998. The number one song in the U.S. was “The Boy Is Mine” by Brandy and Monica. The number one movie was Godzilla. On TV, Geraldo signed off after over a decade of throwing chairs and breaking noses. The Cartoon Network had debuted a new show named Sailor Moon a few days earlier … and HBO was about to debut a show that would provide years of entertainment and water cooler talk for women and gay men all over the world … Arliss.

Oh wait, it was Sex And The City.

Through six seasons, we followed the romantic travails of Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda, their peripheral gay BFF’s Stanford and Anthony, and the many men they loved, hated, or just wanted to bed.

If there’s one thing the show knew how to do well, it was provide male eye candy, and there were many familiar names that came and went (literally) during the show’s run. Let’s take a look at 15 of the hottest guys to show up. Some were long-term relationships, others were one-night stands, but they all provided a sweet distraction.

Jason Lewis played Smith (not his real name), the longest Samantha relationship. During the course of his 16 episodes, he showed his greatest talent in a cornfield on stage, caused massive traffic accidents in Times Square (see above pic), and cut off his blond locks in solidarity when Samantha had cancer.


 Blair Underwood played Dr. Robert, Miranda’s last relationship before she and baby daddy Steve renewed their love. Miranda was hoping her affair with Robert would mirror the fake Brit soap Jules and Mimi, but it sadly ended with hurt feelings, and for Steve, questions of … inadequacy.
 Bobby Cannavale. Two words – “Funky Spunk.”
 Chris Noth played Carrie’s Mr. Big, the longest-running relationship in the show (and the movies). Since we’re probably not going to get a third film, we can only speculate what’s happening in their marriage. I can’t be the only one who sees John (Big’s real name) in prison for some kind of white collar Wall Street thing.
 David Eigenberg played Steve, Miranda’s true love. Starting out as a broke bartender, he eventually bought his own bar with Aidan, leading to awkward moments when Aidan and Carrie broke up. Steve would eventually have an affair in the second SATC movie because Miranda forgot to get a bikini wax.
 In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-him moment, Eddie MCClintock starred as “Guy By Pool” in the 13th episode of Season Three. He tried to bum a cigarette from a sad and lonely Carrie, but his advances were rebuffed. Carrie would instead hook up with Vince Vaughn, because Carrie is an idiot.
 Eddie Cahill made his acting debut in Episode Four of Season Three, playing a twenty-something bisexual who Carrie starts dating. Unfortunately, a tragic game of spin-the-bottle and a kiss from Alanis Morrissette proves too much for Carrie to handle.
 Gilles Marini was the most memorable part of the first SATC movie (though Charlotte’s explosive diarrhea was a close second), and had the most examined and re-examined shower scene since Psycho.
One of  the hottest guy to appear on the show was Jack Hartnett, who was on one just one episode (the Season Finale of Season Three), as “Hot Guy,” a Samantha conquest who cut short his tryst when she became enraged by a group of prostitutes outside her window. Mr. Hartnett, you completely destroyed the pause button on my remote.


 John Corbett starred for 22 episodes as Aidan, Carrie’s runner-up soul mate. Infinitely patient, he suffered through Carrie’s cheating, her inability to bake an edible apple pie, and her ACTUAL ALLERGIC REACTION at the thought of getting married.
 Justin Theroux starred in Episode 15 of Season Two, as a short-story author with a perfect family (including Valerie Harper), who can’t seem to get on the same sexual wavelength as Carrie, because he … arrives … too soon. Note to Carrie – If a guy has a problem with premature ejaculation, grabbing his junk and squeezing is not going to stop the leak.
 Kyle McLachlan was Charlotte’s first husband Trey, a blue blood who sadly had performance issues (except when masturbating to back issues of Juggs). They separated and reconciled, but eventually broke up for good when he jokingly presented his barren wife with a cardboard baby to raise.
 Sean Palmer starred for eight episodes as Stanford’s boyfriend Marcus, an Off-Broadway dancer, who it’s revealed had spent his younger days as a paid escort named Paul (as Anthony points out, “Worst hooker name ever.”) Oh, and you can grate cheese on his abs, according to guest star Nathan Lane.
 Timothy Olyphant starred in Episode Four of the first season (in one of his first acting roles), as a twenty-something who has a fling with Carrie. Unfortunately, it’s not as hot in the light of day, as Carrie realizes he lives in a rat nest with other young slobs.
Victor Webster appeared on the first episode of Season Six as a stockbroker who moves into Samantha’s building in the meat-packing district. Before long, there’s some hot … insider trading going on.

Letters to Laugh-In is a daytime game show and spin-off of NBC's popular nighttime comedy series at the time, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In, that aired on the network from September 29 to December 26, 1969. The show was hosted by Gary Owens, the announcer for Laugh-In.

Home viewers mailed their jokes to the program, during which they were read by a panel of four celebrities – two of them Laugh-In regulars. Each joke was rated on a scale of zero to 100.
The highest-rated joke that day won the home viewer a prize (such as a trip to Hawaii), while the lowest-rated joke won a trip to "beautiful downtown Burbank".
One particularly notable joke from the program asked the question, "What's the difference between a sigh, a car, and a jackass?" When the other person answered that he did not know, the questioner said, "A sigh is 'oh dear,' and a car is 'too dear.'" When pressed what's a jackass, the questioner responded, "You dear."
