ISLAND Spotlight :: Weekend of the 23rd-24th April with Mez

Wednesday I was guest bartending @ 1834NYC, follow em, they have some great burgers. Its a sports bar in the financial district, good food, easy on the wallet. It's Wednesday night theme is "America's Next Top Bartender" you think you got what it takes?
Friday I was out of it, so not much to tell you there, although I did hear that Amnesia is quite a hot place to be on a Friday, You may well see me there very soon.

Saturday was the Fortra DVD launch party, of the photos that are actually PG rated that I can show you are attached but wow, I have to say this. I've always thought of the whole 'sex party' swinger thing in one mindset. That the people there are immoral etc. This party completely changed my perception. Most of them are just like you and I. Normal functioning adults, the only difference is, they are very open about their sexuality, its a beautiful thing really. To see people embracing life and love like that.

This Friday I'm hosting 'Study Buddy Fridays' @ Johnny Utah's Exams are upon us college/university students. Everybody needs a little mental break, so come check me out in ur glasses and suspenders and lets get buckwild before we go back to studying!
Quote of the weekend: "Well you might as well get a shirt that says "I've got a huge dick""

ISLAND Spotlight :: François Sagat by Ross Watson

I think it's amazing that lately I've been seeing actor/model François Sagat, in a lot of publications... High-five François! This time its Australian painter Ross Watson who in his latest showing off his work, features a painting of French porn star Francois Sagat, who on the last World AIDS Day worked with the French Health Department on a series of HIV prevention videos.
"I was motivated by the Vatican's position on homosexuality, and its ban on condom use, to create a painting which references Caravaggio's 'Crucifiction of St Peter'. Francois Sagat continues to play a valuable role in the area of HIV/AIDS prevention and education. I wanted to acknowledge that in the painting, whilst tying it to the Vatican. In contrast, the Vatican uses its status in the UN General Assembly to obstruct the promotion of condoms as protection against HIV/AIDS, and sexuality education in school curricular. Some will regard the painting as provocative, but I don't believe it is in contrast to the Vatican's position on these issues. The Pope's 2nd in charge recently claimed homosexuality and pedophilia are linked. That enraged me. It seems just and deserving to depict Francois Sagat as a contemporary saint, given he is helping to save lives, rather than contributing to causing illness and deaths for millions. The great majority of Caravaggio's patrons were from the Catholic church, and his paintings were sometimes rejected as they were viewed as inappropriate for a religious theme. I'm reminded here of my freedom as an artist. Imagine what Caravaggio might paint if he were alive today?"
