I am currently loving the men’s swimwear pictorial over at fashion156.com. This is so impractical yet so me!

Nickey: Totally sweet old ad

I forgot I’d bookmarked this old Michael Jackson Pepsi commercial a few months ago, and it seems pretty apropos to post it now. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love this ad. The style is so good, and I love the little kids dancing! Anyway, enjoy.

Jon: Seven Inch Saturday!

Paul and I recently bought a new record player, our first in quite some time. This has encouraged a swelling of nostalgia in us. We’ve been listening to all our old records, a lot of which are queer punk/ riot girl/ 90’s indie 7″s. Some are as amazing as remembered, others have fallen a bit flat over time. All of them are worthy of praise though because each was responsible in part for us developing us into the adults which we are today.

Sadly though, for each awesome record we have their are 5 more out of print ones we only remember hearing at teenage friends houses and on long lost mix tapes. Amazingly, most of these appear to be completely un-findable anywhere on the internet. This is potentially a great loss of creative intellectual value. This music must not be lost to time!

We here at Gaycondo have decided to take our part in digitizing and documenting these recordings.  The plan is to post one 7″ every Saturday from here on out!

The first 7″ to be featured will be “The New Team Dresch V 6.0” by Team Dresch

Released in 1998 on Outpunk records, the two songs featured on this record would be two of the last original songs to be recorded by (arguably the most important queercore band of all time) Team Dresch. Recently however, the band has reformed and murmurs of a new album have been traveling feverishly through the queer music community. Hopefully we won’t have to wait long. In the meantime, enjoy these two (almost lost forever) Team Dresch tracks.

…and so far it’s kind of *meh*…

The only collections worth a dime so far are from Prada and Marni, and even those aren’t inspiring enough to convince me to post a picture here. Instead, here is a collage of pictures I made of a random  douche-y guy wh0 was in the backround of every GianFranco Ferre runway photograph.  He seems about as bored as I am about the whole thing…

 Enjoy.

Hopefully I will find something good eough to actually be worth reviewing soon!
