Neo-glam musican/artist/dandy and wowlebrity Merlin Dietrich premieres the fabulous stop-frame animation video for his single “Silver Samovar.” Merlin, of course, was in the early ’80s British New Wave band Mystery Girls (“Wearing women’s make-up with men’s clothing that was glammed up to the point of surreality, the band  released a single, ‘Ash In Drag,’ with A&M Records” – IMDB) and is an author of some renown (he wrote The Man Who Knew Too Little which was made into the 1997 movie starring Bill Murray). Now Merlin is a part of our WOWPresents multi-channel network and definitely someone worth watching. 

Check out “Silver Samovar” below. It’s a catchy little ditty, and I guarantee you will be singing “When I’m beat/I retreat/to St Petersberg” for the rest of the day.

Lady Bunny writes on her blog:

Wow! As NYC becomes whiter and more boring, who better than a white and boring tourism ambassador like Taylor Swift to usher in more boring, mainstream types? I had a giggle the other night after my show at Mad Museum when an older gal approached me and asked for a photo. She gave her phone to my friends Billy Erb and Pia Guccione to take the pic and remarked how she lived in Amityville and hadn’t been to Manhattan in 20 years. “It’s so safe now!”, she joyfully exclaimed. So we stole her camera and ran just to prove her wrong and spoil her trip. (I’m kidding–we just said “Run!” once she handed us the camera and pretended to ruin her trip for a second.) Look, I don’t know much about Taylor Swift and I know NYC relies on tourism, but is there anyone less NYC than her? Is Cit-tay a reference from one of her songs. I find this disturbing. Then again, I find the mirror disturbing.

It’s going to be quite a night. THIS MONDAY at the Arclight in Hollywood, a rare screening of the shockumentary that started it all: PARTY MONSTER at 7:30PM with a Q&A afterwards (featuring Randy Barbato, Fenton Baily, and ME!). Then, hold on to wigs, it’s a sneak peek of the UPCOMING NEW DOCUMENTARY After Party, in which Michael and I talk (and talk and talk) about everything that happened AFTER the documentary was shot – his arrest, his time in prison, and how he’s acclimating to the 21st century. You don’t want to miss it.

AND BE SURE TO COME DRESSED IN YOUR CLUBKID FINERY: THERE WILL BE A PRIZE FOR THE BIGGEST PARTY MONSTER!

 

Party Monster, the original documentary directed by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, tells the story of the rise and fall of Michael Alig. A kid from Middle America who aspired to be the next Andy Warhol, Michael quickly rose to become the biggest party promoter in New York City, and King of the so-called Club Kids. Alig created his own reality—a “surreality”—one without rules.  But the charming freedom of this world eventually mutated into something darker, where getting away with murder would prove to be the ultimate thrill. After spiraling into drug addiction, Michael brutally murdered his roommate Angel Melendez and was sent to prison for 17 years. Alig was released from prison this year on May 5th, 2014 and is back in New York, living on parole.

After its release to critical acclaim in 1998, Party Monster won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in News and Documentary Program, and was an official selection for the Sundance Film Festival. The Club Kid documentary Party Monster was later reworked into a cult movie of the same name starring Macaulay Culkin and Seth Green, written, directed and produced by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato, and co produced by World of Wonder and Killer Films. The 2003 film was based on the memoir Disco Bloodbath by Club Kid James St. James.
