Undoctored Photo of Sandy Aftermath

by Chexy on October 30, 2012

My co-worker, Rafael, sent me this UNDOCTORED photo of NYC after Hurricane Sandy. He took the photo himself. Yup. For real!

Raf also said, “It’s mines, but you can use it.”

Thanks, Raf!

The charming Munsey’s Sea Grill on Ocean Blvd. and A Street in Hampton Beach, NH, with its lovely floor, cool mugs and chrome Deco seating. The restaurant was inside the Janvrin Hotel in 1936, below, which was later sold to an employee named Ralph Moulton.

This is how the Janvrin looked years earlier, when it was rebuilt after a 1915 fire… it would burn again in 1921.

Below is the original, on fire.

And below is the hotel as it appears today…

Mad Maggie’s Beachwear at the Moulton Hotel. Reasonable rates.

Mystery in Drag: Sahara Davenport Dead at 27

by Chexy on October 2, 2012

Sad news from the drag world this morning… Sahara Davenport is dead. The onetime “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestant’s cause of death is unknown, with conjecture ranging from meningitis to drugs, although no official cause has been released.

Sahara was the longtime partner of one of my favorite drag stars, Manila Luzon, who has appeared on these pages many times. Manila is set to compete in “RuPaul’s All-Star Drag Race” which premieres October 22.

To Manila: Mahal kita.

The Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, insists on wearing this polka dot dress and jacket until they disintegrate. She appeared in the outfit AGAIN today at a rehab center in Leatherhead — which is also one of Charles’ nicknames for Camilla. And one of mine.

Below, the many appearances of the eternal ensemble I love to hate…

June 22, 2011, at Wimbeldon.

She wore it to the Flower show last July 28 2010 (above), and just five days prior to that at the West Wiltshire show (below).

and June 22, 2010…

and in April before that…

Please, please, contribute to Camilla’s Clothing Fund.

hat tip to Johnny Lopez for the title, so cards and letters to him.
