“Fractal”, An Experimental Short Film; Fractal Swimwear

by Accidental Bear

Walking the fine line between porn and art is my comfort zone. Some how I judge the content I am viewing in terms of, whether or not I would be comfortable having my computer screen open in a cafe. After all my comfort zone is not your comfort zone. I opened the page to ANAL MAGAZINE while sipping an ice coffee at a local coffee shop the other day. I was so enthralled by it’s content that I forgot anyone else existed. When I snapped back to reality, I noticed I had a few pair of stink eyes glaring over my shoulder at the naked men on my screen. No apologies here. I feel like I had just discovered a treasure and quickly bookmarked the page and went on with my day.

“The Fashion Show is on the Street”-Bill Cunningham

by Accidental Bear

I have a new idol, Bill Cunningham! A feel good, inspiring, light hearted, educating , ball of positivity and NYC fashion history. A must watch film.

_________________________________________________

“We all get dressed for Bill,” says Vogue editrix Anna Wintour.

The “Bill” in question is 80+ New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the Times Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller—who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunningham’s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair. In turn, Bill Cunningham New York is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.

Ejector, Two Became Three; New Website

by Accidental Bear

Cut me off a piece of that pie, Ejector pie that is. Two became three, when new member Scott  joined forces and has added a thick layer of hunk to the mix, as well as fine tuning Ejector into a tight (mmm, us gays like tight) running machine. SF has needed a band like Ejector to emerge from the depths. I first moved to SF in the early 90’s and the local queer music scene was off the hook, with a multitude of  queer bands; Stone Fox, Tribe 8, 4 Non Blondes, Pansy Division , Extra Fancy ( from LA) etc. Ejector has given CPR to SF’s queer music scene and revived it. I am looking forward to catching them at a street fair out 2 this summer and rocking the front row, feeding off the high energy! See you in the streets.

SHOW ANNOUNCEMENT– Sunday, April 24, 2011

We have been invited to be part of one of San Francisco’s most beloved traditions, Easter Sunday in Dolores Park with the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence! We will post all the info and links here when they’re ready, but mark your calendars NOW and plan on being there starting around 10/11:00 am.

411:

Formed in 2008, the original line up consisted of Ben Holder and Ricky Terry. Quickly, they made a name for themselves and became a San Francisco favorite playing clubs, street festivals, and fundraising events. While working on their 2010 album On The Pages they enlisted the help of Dr. Scott. His production skills and ear for dance music was a perfect fit. It wasn’t long until Scott was asked to join them on stage and writing new material commenced. The two became three.

Combining strengths, a new sound was completely evident at their first show together and audiences knew something big had happened. Drawing from a broad range of influences, prior industry knowledge, their love of film scores, sci-fi, and theatre, these elements get wrapped up with a dance groove while not forgetting to add a dash of humor, and sass. They are no strangers to dancing between the light and the dark, deftly transitioning between gentle passion and raw aggression and tackling themes from the playful now to the pain of long lost love. Flash in the pan pop act they are not.
