Robert Pattinson‘s Hollywood house is on the market. The Seyler House was designed by Stiles O. Clements (of the El Capitan Theatre) and was “one of the first private residences built in the hills above Los Feliz,” according to the listing. It sits on 1.5 acres of gloriously landscaped acreage, and also comes with three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, library, dining room, a lagoon pool, an amphitheater, and line of famous Hollywood owners, including Tim Curry, Noah Wyle, and cinematographer Robert Richardson. Pattinson bought it in 2011 for $6.275 million and is now selling for $6.75 million, which seems like a pretty good bargain, if you’ve got the money.

She was a pioneer in the area. Diane von Furstenberg‘s corner live/ work space is dream come true anywhere, but in the hottest neighborhood in Manhattan, it is pure heaven. If you’ve watched House of DVF, you know that DVF‘s flagship store sits on the corner of Washington & W. 14th Street. If you’ve been to the Meatpacking Distrct, you’ve passed it. I moved to the are 10 years ago and Diane’s former home and shop was a few blocks south on W. 12th Street. She sold that for a fortune and had the architects of WORKac build her an unconventional live/work space next right to the High Line —the raised park that she and husband Barry Diller helped create. (Meanwhile, he had Frank Gehry build his spectacular IAC headquarters a few blocks north.) DVF says:

“Everybody told me when I came to this neighborhood that I was crazy—that it was full of drag queens, that it smelled awful because of all the butchers. All of that is true, and yet in a weird way the cobblestone streets remind me of Belgium.”

The six-story, 35,000-square-foot structure comprises Von Furstenberg’s design studio and flagship store. She once lived in a lavish Park Avenue apartment and the 65-year-old grandmother of three explains:

“When I was young, I lived like an old woman and when I got old, I had to live like a young person.”

Von Furstenberg hired Amale Andraos and Dan Wood, of the architecture firm WORKac —to connect two 19th century redbrick buildings and the gap between them is now a concrete staircase that goes from the lobby floor to her private rooftop lair with a live/work space – and on top, a 900-square-foot master suite with a terrace. THE perfect New York apartment, perched on top of the business she built from a single wrap dress. And if that’s not enough, in a garage downstairs sits a late-model Bentley – I’ve seen it with the garage door open and the driver waiting for the lady upstairs. For more photos, go here.

Check out Australian photog Luke Austin’s latest Mini Beau Book ‘Fem’ (featuring NYC gogo icon Matthew Camp)- the third installment of hot boys that Austin has encountered and photographed during his travels around the world. This time around, he went for a more girlie approach, dressing the boys up in not much more than Dolly Parton-esque wigs. You can buy Fem on his website…and if you’re in NYC this weekend, get one in person at Austin’s book signing Sunday, at Dune Studios.

Super-cute queer 2015 calendar (hey – it’s still January) is out now and getting love at the LA Art Book Fair downtown at MoCA this weekend. It’s from LA-based queer-artzine JIMMY THE ZINE and it features an array of beardy/hippie boys from LA, Atlanta, New Orleans and all over posing as various figures from the Tarot card deck. And our very own sex god John Polly is one of ‘em! (Shirtless John Polly – Hubba hubba.)

Photos were shot both in LA and at a radical queer commune back in the South by AJ GOODRICH. Check out the fab calendar images below. And buy yours here.

From the Hammer Museum blog interview with Jimmy Vogel of JIMMY the Zine.

Darin Klein: How long have you been self-publishing?

Jimmy Vogel: Brent Freaney and I printed the first issue of JIMMY the zine in 2010, Xeroxed at a little print ship in Hollywood, then folded and stapled them on the floor of my living room.

DK: How many issues have you published?

JV: There have been 5 Issues of the zine. Everything we make is produced under the umbrella project of JIMMY the zine, but we’ve also gotten to play with other mediums. We’ve done 4 calendars and commissioned poster prints as well as graphic work on t-shirts and totes. And we organize events and exhibitions.

DK: I understand you’ll be bringing the JIMMY the Zine 2015 Calendar to the fair this year? Give us some details. Who is the photographer? Any fun anecdotes about the photo shoot or production?

JV: For this year’s calendar the filmmaker/photographer AJ Goodrich shot 26 beautifully theatrical portraits recreating Tarot cards. He’s done all the major Arcana and the 4 suits. We shot half of them here in Los Angeles and the other half at a radical queer commune, which for a project like this, is an amazing wonderland of props and costumes.

DK: Who and/or what are you looking forward to seeing at the fair this year?

JV: I of course always love the turnout of queer zines. The fair organizers group us all together each year, so we all know each other and it feels like a mini reunion in some ways.

DK: Can you compare and contrast your experiences at past NY and LA Art Book fairs with other fairs and festivals you’ve participated in?

JV: Printed Matter’s Art Book Fairs are like nothing else. To see such a massive turnout of people still interested in printed things is amazing. Other fairs I’ve done are often a bit too crafty and the audience is only half interested. These fairs bring together really creative and talented mix of publishers dedicated to print and a crowd of people genuinely excited to see it still happening.

After seeing a promo for RuPaul’s Drag Race (premiering March 2 on Logo TV!) Mary Cheney (daughter of Dick) likened drag to black face. Ooo, Mary. We see this as a teachable moment. Time for a Drag Herstory lesson. Learn it, and learn it well. Watch Ru’s message to Miz Cheney after the jump. 

From CNN:

Mary Cheney wants to know why it isn’t “socially acceptable” for a white person to “put on blackface and act out offensive stereotypes of African-Americans” if drags queens are allowed to imitate female stereotypes?

If a man can dress up as a woman to entertain an audience, then why can’t a white person get on stage in blackface, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney wondered aloud Thursday in a private Facebook post obtained by CNN.

“Why is it socially acceptable — as a form of entertainment — for men to put on dresses, make up and high heels and act out every offensive stereotype of women (bitchy, catty, dumb, slutty, etc.) — but it is not socially acceptable — as a form of entertainment — for a white person to put on blackface and act out offensive stereotypes of African Americans?” Cheney wrote in a post on Thursday her private Facebook page. Some of Cheney’s posts appear to only be visible to those who are in her Facebook network.

Paranormal experts around the world are buzzing about this TERRIFYING VIDEO which purports to show A GHOST! knocking down A WOMAN! for no good reason! Cecilia Carrasco of Santiago, Chile, was knocked to the ground recently by what she describes as a paranormal entity. The moment was captured on video by a surveillance camera, which you can watch after the jump. (The video is in Spanish.)

“I wasn’t aware of anybody in front of me as I passed the reception desk talking to a girl,” she tells the news reporter. “And as I looked towards the receptionist I suddenly felt two pairs of hands shove me over. I hit the floor but when I looked up I couldn’t see anybody, and I thought they probably had run off.”

She said she didn’t believe in ghosts until now, and thinks that the spirit is going to continue to haunt her.

Online speculation runs the gamut from “tiny ninja ghosts” to “aliens. You cant rule out Aliens in matters like this,” to “fat bitch slipped.” Watch the video and DECIDE FOR YOURSELF. (via the DW)
