Catching Up with the Decorated Artist/ Actor/ Model Trevor Wayne| Q&A

by Accidental Bear

You may recognize Trevor Wayne from when he first landed in LA from Chicago and quickly got swiped up by hot-shot networks wanting him for TV pilots including “a role on “ER”. After that TV pilots seemed to be the thing. He has acted along side Fran Drescher and Roseanna Arquette on shows. Enrique Iglesias, Pink, and others in various music videos. His venture into the web came from director John Roecker (“Live Freaky, Die Freaky”, and “Heart Like A Hand Grenade”: The Green Day documentary) in a series called “Sevengali”, acting along side Tim Armstrong (of the band Rancid). Trevor’s latest role is in Bruce LaBruce’s film “L.A.Zombie”. A few other projects are in the works.”

   

Lately he has been fastidiously putting together 8 uncensored pinup postcards along with the mag that started it Pinups! The mag won’t be reprinted and many of the pics, including Clive Barker’s photos, won’t make it to the postcard series. On August 5th Trevor will be having an opening reception party at The Coffee Table in Silverlake to celebrate his artwork being hung there for the month. For those of you that won’t be able to make it in person, check out how to get prints here: http://trevorwayne.bigcartel.c​om/. Feature above are 4 prints that are available. LOVE!

Q & A: First Date Questions

Accidental Bear: Where did you grow up?

Trevor Wayne: I grew up all over the midwest.. from blueberry farms in Michigan,, to
farms in Indiana and Chicago.

A B: Were you a wild teenager or a book-worm?

Trevor: I was a nerd: video games and comic books. Not much else to do in the country!

LaBruce Talks to Press at Frameline 35 | SF CA

by Accidental Bear

 Bruce LaBruce was one of my personal most scary interviews because I admire the man, his work and his ability to stay out of the box but mostly his sense of mystery. I really believe he could be an out-of-this-world character from one of his films. I enjoy reading other writers who have played with Bruce and the outcome  that comes to print. The B.A.R. sends out their troupes with some amazing results. AB

(via B.A.R.)

Hands down, the man at Frameline 35 was underground auteur Bruce LaBruce. From the documentary about him directed by Angelique Bosio, The Advocate for Fagdom, to LaBruce’s color-drenched, blood-soaked, sex saga of a zombie on the lurch L.A. Zombie, he covers the waterfront. Photojournalist Cornelius Washington gave LaBruce the twice-over at the Victoria Theatre and the 45th anniversary party of the legendary bar The Stud.

Cornelius Washington: Your images and Joe Castro‘s have been featured in David Leddick’s coffee-table books on the male nude. David was the international creative director of Revlon and L’Oreal, and he wants to know, how did you two hook up? He was very impressed by the quality of the make-up.

Bruce LaBruce: Joe is one of the primary reasons I did the film. He came to one of my premieres, where he told me that he was a make-up artist and special-effects creator for a straight porn horror film. I was thrilled to work with him. He has a mastery of make-up, where everything looked beautiful without the use of PhotoShop or image manipulation.

Accidental Bear Interrogates Bruce LaBruce; “Hollywood is Dead.” (Q & A)

by Accidental Bear

It is rare that you get to chat with someone you consider a legend and has influenced your life. Well slap my ass and call me Judy, I just did. Bruce LaBruce is brilliantly off key and sharp. Bruce’s film No Skin Off my Ass  skated me through a blurry time in my life by inspiring  me with  images of homocore-queer-skinheads and exposing me to a side of gay culture I could honestly relate to other than Jack Tripper from Threes Company. There is nothing cookie cutter about Bruce and he has kept true to the integrity of his art. I imagine Bruce like myself would find beauty in a mud puddle in a dirty parking lot. That takes an untrained eye and nothing thousands of dollars of art school can teach you. My interview with Bruce is direct and to the point, no fluff. I suggest you draw yourself and bath, get a little tipsy, do some poppers and slip into the water and enjoy our chat. What happens below the water is your own business.

BRUCE LABRUCE AND ITEM IDEM AT THE OPERA

by Accidental Bear

Interview by Michael Ladner
Photography by Bella Lieberberg

Last Sunday at around 7:30 p.m. CET at the Hebbel am Ufer theatre in Berlin-Kreuzberg, a massive iron curtain thundered upwards, marking the premiere ofBruce LaBruce’s first-ever staging of Arnold Schönberg’s melodrama Pierrot Lunaire. Leave it to Bruce LaBruce to transform Schönberg’s opera of sorts into a one-hour-long gender-bending tale of impossible love, guilt, and confusion — complete with a neo-expressionist stage design including a dick-guillotine and dildos aplenty. A day before the premiere Bruce and his art director Cyril Duval aka item idem took time out from tending to the production’s final kinks to answer some of BUTT’s pondering questions.

TONY WARD… Call Me… k?

by Accidental Bear

TONY

WARD

Aww, he brought me flowers!

I feel as if Mr Ward has had a rebirth. He first caught my attention when he was  Madonna‘s boyfriend in the beginning of the 1990s and he appeared in some of her music videos as well as the controversial SEX book in 1992. What drove me home was his role in 1996 – Hustler White by Bruce LaBruce and Rick Castro. He drips of sleazy, sexy. Maybe the bad boy you wouldn’t bring home to mom but the one who would have all your friends green with envy. Ohhhh Tony, CALL ME!
