BCALLA, one of our favorite New York designers, premiered his FW15 collection last night at WestGay through a fashion porn shot with the Cocky Boys as part of Colby Keller's video project, Colby Does America. It's a glorious collision of fashion, sex, and excess, with boys in candy-colored cut-out looks sucking each other off to a soundtrack by Neocamp. THIS ISN'T ART, THIS IS FAGGOTRY. More info below:

"Brooklyn nightlife is the glue and sweat that holds the BCALLA FW15 collection together. A familiar venue for BCALLA, the electric sandbox with no rules and no gender embraces the pop sexuality of a media-frenzied and porn-infused underground. This season's video presentation is a collaboration with Colby Keller. It serves as the New York entry to Colby Does America, a project Keller is helming, touring all 50 states and capturing his encounters. The FW15 video, directed by Special Agent Ferretti with set design by Michael Burk, employs 1990s cartoon imagery to transport the players (Cocky Boys team) to a psychedelic sphere where sex is a colorful and exuberant experiment, but more importantly, sex is funny. The BCALLA demonic cat appears throughout the collection, the bliss-seeking monster inside all of us."

Watch the video on Keller's site.

LYKKE LI FINDS LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS

Earlier this week, artist Lykke Li announced that she had cancelled a string of upcoming festival tour dates. "I am utterly devastated. Sometimes we push and push but the body simply won't follow," said Li via Instagram. "I gave it all I had, my body, heart and soul. After seven years of touring, my health is screaming/begging for me to listen/heal/slow down."

Since her debut album, 2008's Youth Novels, Li has transformed from a quirky alt-pop chanteuse into a goddess of melancholy. Her most recent album, 2014's I Never Learn, tells the tale of a woman who both struggles through and revels in her own despair. It's an achingly beautiful record, one where Li holds herself accountable for all her mistakes and is able to see the hope shining through the darkness. 

Late last fall, we had the chance to chat with Li, days after her spellbinding show at Radio City Music Hall. Li spoke about the cathartic and healing power of art, the rigors of touring, and the spiritual power of her music.

THE COMEDOWN

One week until I turn 26 and, according to what pop culture would have you believe, begin my slow slide into decay, and it's hard not to be introspective. I found myself really sad this weekend, especially while I was partying, and even when I was "having fun". Is it possible to be sad while you're happy? My mind may be splintering.

I'm coming off what I should qualify as the best few weeks of my year. RIOT was a huge success, I got through my first Pride at my job, and new opportunities seems to be cropping up as often as I grow bored with older ones. Everything was presented with real passion. But the little things keep getting to me.

I had some very good sex this week and also gained insight into some of my interpersonal relationships and learned things that I'm shocked took me so long to figure out. I'm not sure if I've been willfully blind or if some things have shifted recently, but I pride myself on being very self-aware, so it really tripped me up.

I started drinking again right before Pride and I'm really proud of myself for making it (almost) a month. My body needed time to heal from the serious strain I'd been putting it through and I think I gave it that. But I'm definitely leaning into the drinking hard at the moment. Not gonna lie and say it isn't fun.

With my birthday coming up, maybe the best way to get how I'm feeling out is to talk about what I would like from 26:

  • I'd like to have more fulfilling sex with people I actually want to have sex with again. I'm not talking about a boyfriend, but I want lovers who I care about.
  • I'd like to use whatever "cache" I've built for myself in nightlife to start doing projects that can make me money and fulfill me creatively, like x-arthd.com and puremature.tv, without having to compromise my "ideals" for someone else's bottom line.
  • I'd like to be healthier, whatever that means. I know what it means but you know what I mean.
  • I'd like to see my family more and not feel so far away from them.
  • I'd like to be a better queer and educate myself on our history, our struggle, all the ways that I'm too privileged to understand it and all the ways I can empower myself and my peers to make real change.
  • I'd like to make art that feels necessary.
  • I'd like to sleep for an entire 24 hours.
  • I'd like to sleep next to someone for an entire night without moving away from them.

On a happy note: I went to an all-night beach party with a bunch of queers this weekend and realized I'd never been to the beach with queers before. It was nice. I always feel very balanced by the sea and I was - while my feet wear in the ocean, at least.

Ying my yang, please.

Can the Party Space Ever Be Truly Queer?

I think we are all in agreement at this point that marriage is not and can never be queer. Whether you take the feminist approach that the institution upholds gender roles or the anti-capitalist approach that its primary purpose is to ensure the production of new workers, it is safe to say that marriage stands no chance in the face of a queer critique. While marriage equality is very trendy right now, we are over here trying to come up with radical new ways to love, to exist, and to solve the problem that is 21st century post-capitalist American personhood. Some people just take it easy, realitypornking.tv stars for example. And we can all agree that state-sanctioned unions need to go.

It's all about the beauty at http://18onlygirls.tv and we promise you've never seen such flawlessly hot girls that love being naked and naughty.

Hot girls get it on in gorgeous videos at wow-porn.tv. They are the most beautiful chicks in the world!

Visit http://www.fantasy-hd.tv and you can watch high definition videos of beautiful girls sucking cock and getting fucked with great passion and desire.

But what about partying? Partying, or the party space, always purports to be a unifying, sometimes transcendental, experience, and we all seem to be okay with that. We party separately in our own communities, but appreciation for cheap beer and good drugs transcends all boundaries. On some level, I think it's built into our understanding of what and who a modern day subject is.
