If you are new to this blog, you might like to start with these ten posts.
Why these ten? Allow me to explain…
* She’s young! She’s hot! She’s our Trinita! Until recently, this was the most viewed post on Times Square Fandom. Can you see why? Me, too.
* However, this honour has now been taken by Riot Women of Contemporary Cinema. And what an inspiring crew they are. Writing this post, I was so inspired and stunned I inadvertently omitted one of the most riotous: where Medea meets Kabuki, you will find Mommie Dearest (dir. Frank Perry, 1981). Faye Dunaway’s portrayal of Joan Crawford left viewers unsure whether they have witnessed a caricature, high camp, or a painstakingly made-up terrorist. And that is exactly why I love it.
* Speaking of the pussy posse… while the video for Riot Women of Contemporary Cinema is also the most-viewed on my YouTube channel, the runner-up accompanies Nicky + Pammy / White Girl + Cyclona: Times Square / Freeway II. As Nicky and Pammy have saved me in Australia, White Girl and Cyclona sustained me in Tanzania. Thanks, grrrls! (NB This post also contains a delineated rant in which I opine the misogynist mass media treatment of transgressive women, i.e., those who i) are not full of shit and ii) have a life. Bless them. And R.I.P. Amy Winehouse. You made this crappy world a little brighter for me. I love you and thank you for having been here xxx)
* Louise the monkey and Trini Alvarado’s tits was inspired by a true event in the world of Times Square fandom. It has also generated a number of hits from searches for “Trini tits.” At least that isn’t a search for “Trini Alvarado feet.” What is wrong with you people?!?* Where are they now?: ii) Nicole “Nicky” Marotta was one of my first posts. Evincing that new blogger zeal, it contains images that are too small, esoteric / obscure references to Robin Johnson fandom, some really hot pictures, and a couple of things that still make me laugh. Hardligay, indeed!
* The concept of a “hot picture” might be defined by this post. Trust me, and click.
* The Voice of Revolution / Robin Johnson’s voice is my love letter to Robin Johnson. OK. My most obvious one.
* She’s streetwise! She’s Italian! She’s DOWNTOWN! She’s one of the Kamikaze Hearts in The Cleo Club!*In Times Square “Lesbian Film Guide” review, I not only take as a given that Nicky and Pammy are dykes, I also invent a new term for butch-femme relationships! My pleasure. (If you are interested in the queerness of our heroines, you might also like Timesqueer: POV editing, my most film-techniquey post thus far.)
* On the 30th anniversary of its U.S. release, I posted Times Square, nostalgia, and melancholy. It remains my favourite post.
