Video Clip Of The Week: Raquel Welch, “Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In”

Ladies and Gentlemen: It’s finally Summer!  So, consider this clip starring legendary actress and sex-goddess Raquel Welch performing the classic medley from Hair, “Aquarius/Let The Sun Shine In” to be my official launch of what I hope will be a Summer of kick ass videos, as well as a salute to this being Pride Day here in NYC! Certainly there has never been a more appropriate time to open ourselves up to this song’s lyrical prophecy of “Harmony and understanding, Sympathy and trust abounding” etc etc. I’m sure you will agree.

This delicious-looking, multi-tiered cake couldn’t help but catch my eye as we passed the Empire Cake, where it was prominently displayed in the bakery shop’s front window. Check out the colorful fondant cut-outs in the shapes of some of the most iconic works by the late artist and activist Keith Haring. Brilliant.

Empire Cake is Located at 112 Eight Avenue (Between 15th and 16th Streets) in Chelsea, NYC.

Gail and Geoffrey’s Excellent Gay Pride Adventure!


Wonder Woman Costume from Met Superheroes Exhibit

This weekend was Gay Pride here in NYC, and Geoffrey and I celebrated by having a ridiculously fun Sunday adventure that will heretofore be known as “The Gayest Day Ever.” Just because it sounds more fun that way!

First, I picked up Geoffrey at his apartment and we traveled uptown by train and bus (experiencing excellent Mass Transit Karma) to 5th Avenue and 82nd street, arriving at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Unless you have ADD, you might recall that I have already blogged about The Met at least three times in the past week, because it is so awesome. Our first stop at the Met was to hit the roof garden for my second viewing in three days of the Jeff Koons sculpture exhibit, Koons on the Roof.

We spent a few hours in the museum until we became comatose from over-exposure to too much rad art. I highly recommend the Superhero Costume exhibit, which was just insane.


Spidey!

Geoffrey took some great pictures, even though you weren’t supposed to, and he kept getting yelled at. Go Geoffrey, you wild Rebel, you!

After we tired of looking at art we went back down town to dine at our very favorite Cuban restaurant, Havana Chelsea, or Chelsea Havana. Whatever it’s called, the food is beyond delicious! We stuffed our faces with fried chicken cutlets, red beans, yellow rice and fried plantains – pausing occasionally to grunt at each other – until we could barely waddle back out on to the street to mingle with the happy gays celebrating their pride! Yay!

But we were not done yet! Next on the agenda of rad fun was my friend Larry’s birthday party! Larry is a record producer and developer of Reality TV programming who I’ve known for about five years. (Trivia: Larry also lives in the same building as John Waters.) Except for there being way too much reggae on the mix CD, Larry’s party was very fun and gay, but Geoffrey and I were so full of Cuban food that we could barely lift our glasses of over-strong Vodka and Cranberry juice and we snuck out after about two hours. What a fun day!

Happy Gay Pride, Everybody!
