An NYU Film School degree and a token gets you on the subway....

At least that's what I learned.

Which is why I ended up working in finance, and shooting videos with my friends.

Finally, this QUALITY entertainment is now on youtube!

Thank God for the internet!

ENJOY!

It's Gay Pride, AGAIN?

It's Gay Pride Weekend, again?

Who can keep up?

Gay Pride Albany
Gay Pride New Paltz
Gay Pride New York

Every weekend in June there's another fucking gay pride parade somewhere....

Someone asked me, "Trixie, aren't you going to Gay Pride in New York?"

No.

They're hot. They're crowded. (Well, Albany Gay Pride isn't that crowded....)

At the end of the day, it's a bunch of drunk, messy, fucked-up queens screaming all this drama. Either someone lost the drugs, or, some bottom is pissed off because his bottom boyfriend "stole" the one hot top that they were both cruising on the dance floor. Now, the boyfriend AND the top can't be found.

Did ya check the porta-potty?

And let's not even go into the lesbians who get into fist fights on the streets, ok?


You know what I'm talking about. Let's keep domestic violence where it belongs, in the bedroom.

Can we just get this gay marriage thing passed already?

I'd be very happy when gay people become just as boring as straight people and they worry about contributing to their 401ks and paying the phone bill on time.

:)

Thank you.

Love ya,

Trixie

Searching for a TOP

Hi -

-- Trixie

***************************************************
Looking for the ONE TOP MAN who loves to GIVE IT as much as I love to TAKE IT LIKE A MAN !! I am a born bottom man..all nipples and ass and a great KISSER for the right flesh and blood real HARDTOP MAN ( nothing Versatile ever please!!).

Here's my question, this one line:

"I like brains with my groins, I like carrers with my muscles"

He's looking for a top with a career. That's nice. But, don't you think he's asking for a little too much in this ad?

Wig Party

Someone said to me yesterday,

"Trixie, you make it safer for EVERYONE in Hudson to walk down Warren Street in a wig."

It's true.

Like those before me, and those that I'm sure will come after me, we all must pave the wig way in this town. Wear your wigs high and with pride!

WIG PARTY CHANT:

Gay or straight!
Black or White!
Wear your Wig!
Day or Night!


And in case you need help for the care and feeding of your wig, I found these simple instructions, below.

Now you know.

It's the main reason why I write this blog; to help disseminate (*ehem*) information to this town!

You have no reason to have a dirty wig!

-Trixie
***************************************************************


How do I put my wig on?
  1. Give the wig a gentle shake.
  2. Identify the front and the back of the wig. The label always goes in the back. Note the Velcro tabs for sizing. Leave the tabs “as is” at first. You can adjust them later if necessary.
  3. Place the wig on a flat surface so you are looking inside the wig. Make sure the label is at the top (the label is at the back of the wig). Grasp the wig at the top (back), with your hands placed on each side of the label.
  4. Slip the wig over the head starting at the hairline and then towards the neck. The front of the wig should lie on the front hairline.

The wig should feel secure, but not too tight. If needed, you can adjust the size with the Velcro tabs inside the wig.


How often should I wash my wig?

The frequency of washing depends on factors such as air quality and humidity. Generally, a wig should be washed after it has been worn 8 – 12 times, but this can vary.


How do I wash my wig?

  1. Gently brush the wig thoroughly with a wig brush.
  2. Add one tablespoon of wig shampoo to a sink filled with cold water.
  3. Immerse wig for one minute and agitate gently. Do not rub.
  4. Rinse the wig gently in cold clear water twice or until thoroughly rinsed.
  5. Blot the wig gently with a towel. Do not squeeze or wring.
  6. Apply conditioning spray very lightly over wig, spraying 10-12 inches from the wig.
  7. Allow the wig to air dry on a slender object like a can of hairspray or a shampoo bottle covered with a hand towel. Styrofoam heads may stretch the cap.
  8. Do not use a hair dryer. Air dry only. You may gently style the wig with your fingertips.
  9. Brush wig only when completely dry. Do not allow the wig to dry in direct sunlight.


How do I style my wig?

Your wig can be styled by using a wig brush, a wig comb, or your fingertips. Avoid using a brush designed for human hair. These brushes can create excessive tension, over-stretching the hair with abrasive strokes that may damage the hair.
The wigs we carry are “shake & wear” and can be styled by simply using a wide tooth comb or your fingertips. The best styling tool is the most inexpensive; a spray bottle of clean, cool water. Lightly spritz your wig with water to remove static electricity and return your wig to its original look.
To achieve style variations, liquid wig mousse is an essential styling tool. For curly or wavy styles, just mousse, hand scrunch, and pick the style into curls. On straight styles, mousse and brush lightly.
Your wig was designed with a basic style but the variations you can achieve through styling are limitless. Added height can be achieved by gently lifting with the wig comb. If you want added fullness as well, tease or back-comb and then smooth the surface hair over the teasing. Your wig can be returned to its basic style by washing it and allowing it to air dry.
To completely restyle, we recommend taking your wig to a professional stylist.


Can I cut my wig?

Yes! Your wig comes pre-styled with a basic style, but we encourage our clients to have their wigs customized by a professional hair stylist. This is a great way to make the wig uniquely your own. Often, a little trim on the bangs and a little thinning here or there can make all the difference in the world. The wig should be cut while you are wearing it. Everyone has a different face shape, a different forehead length, and different style preferences. Seek out the assistance of experienced professional, and only allow the wig to be cut while it is on your head.


What should I avoid?

  1. Do not expose your wig to heat in excess of 160°. (Like opening an oven door, standing near a barbecue grill, etc.) This will damage the wig fibers. Any type of heat will cause wig fibers to frizz (lamps, ovens/stoves, heat from body).
  2. Do not brush your wig when wet.
  3. Do not use any form of curling irons, hot rollers or blow dryers. Again, heat will ruin the wig.
  4. Do not use products designed for regular human hair. Only use wig shampoo, wig conditioner, wig hair spray, wig mousse, and brushes or combs made especially for wigs.
  5. Do not use bleaches, colors, or rinses on your wig.

Recommendations

  1. Use products specifically designed for wigs. These products are created specifically for synthetic hair. They will keep the wig looking natural by not stripping away the color or the natural sheen. The use of these products will help the wig to last longer.
  2. Keep your wig stored on a wig stand or other "makeshift" item (such as a can of hairspray). This will help it hold its style and shape.
  3. Enjoy your wig and have fun wearing it!


A Taste of India

For all Brian Herman supporters, there's a benefit at the Red Dot on Tuesday, July 8th. 7pm, $20.

www.herman2008.com

I'm assuming that there's going to be some good vegetarian food. Sometimes, people ask me, "doesn't your body NEED meat?"

Depending on the mood I'm in, I'll respond, "Several hundred million Hindus seem to be OK without it."

Xanadu Rehab

Welcome to Xanadu.

Try Jason's tonight, at 8pm. The lovely Erika will be bartending, and maybe they'll play "Xanadu" .

If we're lucky.

In other news today, Amy Winehouse's father, "called on drug dealers to help her recovery by refusing to supply her with crack cocaine."

OK...

When your Dad makes a public appeal to all drug dealers to stop supplying you with crack cocaine, maybe it's time to stop.

It's really the drug dealer's fault.

Those enablers!
*****************************************************

Backstage at the "Working Girls" benefit.

What do you mean you can't curl a polyester wig?

They asked ME, Trixie Starr, to be part of the "Working Girls" benefit.

Why are you laughing?


Backstage was a lot of fun. I asked where was the "boys" dressing room, well...they didn't have ANY!


I know, you've seen this dress before! Well, I had to get a second use out of it!
Thanks for the make up, TONY!

OK - here we go, true story.

So, I'm going to go out on the runway as Bo Peep, right?

They told me, "Trixie, when you go out on the stage, pretend you're looking for your sheep, and ask if anyone's seen them."

Fine, I thought, simple enough, let me interact with the audience. It'll be fun.

I went out on the runway and asked a woman on my right if she's seen any sheep. She said "No."

Then, silly me, I turned to the woman on my left, and asked her, "Does this dress make me look fat?"

And she responded....

"A little in the butt."

WHAT??!!!!!!!!

I know, be careful what you ask for, Trixie....

OMG. Ladies, Gentlemen, HAVEN'T YOU LEARNED?

When someone asks, does this dress make me look fat, the IMMEDIATE RESPONSE must be

NO

You can't even THINK, you just have to say it.

"Does this dress make me look fat?"

"No."

Similarly when a MAN asks you, "Is it big enough?", the response MUST be an immediate

YES.

:)

I had a really good time doing the show. I was very happy to be part of it. Everyone was amazing, and we raised money for a good cause.

It was Hudson at its best!

Thanks, folks!

Taking a drag before she had to go on.

"I'm Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home"

New sign for lower Warren?

Did everyone have a good time last night?

Believe it or not, there is a country music song called,

"I'm Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home"

(There's a country music song for every problem in life, isn't there.)

CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO
(watch it just to see his hairstyle)

If you need a wino to decorate your home.....well, HUDSON IS THE PLACE!


She's coming to Hudson, looking for a home decorator.


But, seriously, the wine bar opening last night was a great success! Great crowd, great atmosphere.

Good luck, guys!

******************************************
Some of the lyrics, in case you missed them:

She said: "I'm gonna' hire a wino to decorate our home,
"So you'll feel more at ease here, and you won't have to roam.
"We'll take out the dining room table, and put a bar along that wall.
"And a neon sign, to point the way, to our bathroom down the hall."
.......

She said: "You'll get friendly service, and for added atmosphere.
"I'll slip on something sexy, and I'll cut it clear to here.
"Then you can slap my bottom, every time you tell a joke.
"Just as long as you keep tipping, well, I'll laugh until you're broke."

The wine bar, "p.m." OFFICIALLY opens today...finally!

Granted, Trixie's not a wine drinker.

I'm more of a bottle-of-hooch-in-the-back-seat-of-a-Camero-during-a-White-Snake-concert-on-Jones-Beach gal, if you know what I mean...

I couldn't pass up the opportunity to sample some new wine.

p.m. opens TODAY, Saturday, June 21, all the way down on Warren Street.

CHECK IT OUT!

Animal Kind Benefit


There is a chant that we say often in yoga class, it translates:

"May all living being be happy and free. And may my own words, deeds, and thoughts contribute to their happiness."

I was honored to be part of the Animal Kind benefit last week. Animal Kind is a wonderful organization in this town, helping animals find homes and offering spay and neutering services.

The benefit raised $17,000 for the organization. Local artists donate their work, the Red Dot donates the space, and for $100/plate, everyone in the room leaves with a piece of art. It's a great benefit!

Click on the link here to learn more about the benefit.

Thanks to Alana and Dini!

There is no reason to buy a dog or cat from a pet store, nor a breeder. There are wonderful animals that need good homes and that are available for adoption.

Animal Kind in town has pets available for adoption, or please tell your friends about Petfinder.com.


Petfinder lists the local shelters with animals that are available; that's where I got my dog. (A big part of the reason I'm in Hudson is because I wanted to give her a back yard. She's much happier here.)

Animal Kind benefit with my friend and artist, Frank

Plus, for this year, there was a full vegan buffet! YAY!

A vegetarian meal once in a while, won't kill you....as a matter of fact, you might even like it...

I've been vegetarian for over six years....if I can do it, you can.


Thank you every one for making this a wonderful night!

--Trixie



The video is not easy to watch...when you're ready. Ok...it's a little preachy....just a little.

What is ART, anyway?

"Art is what you can get away with." --Andy Warhol

I am tired of people telling me what is good "art" and what is bad "art".

As if they know.

First of all, can anyone even define "art", let alone tell me what's good or bad?

I always thought it was interesting that colleges and universities would have a school of "Arts and Science".


"Science" explains our physical world; biology, chemistry, physics, economics. Science is how a tree grows, the molecules within water, or a third-class fulcrum.

"Art" explains what science cannot; an emotion, a concept, a sense, or even a moment in place and time.

Art can make you laugh or cry...or even make you sexually aroused.

(Why should a sexual emotion be devalued?)


What is good or bad art?

Well, isn't it all relative? Doesn't it depend on who you are and your viewpoint?

Art can be a Rembradt painting, an Easter Island statue, or a child's chalk drawing on the sidewalk. All are equally valid means of expression.

To say that one version or type of art is "better" than another, aren't you imposing your own cultural/socio/economic/political background and interpretations on the art itself?

What's "better", a production of "Les Miserables" or a Yankee's game?

Depends on who you ask, no? (And nowadays, ticket prices are about the same.)

Art is individual.



My high school orchestra teacher would tell a story of taking a musician from China to his first Vivaldi concert. They arrived late and sat after the music started. During intermission, the musician was pleased, but didn't think it was that great.

When the orchestra started tuning their instruments for the second half, the Chinese musician LOVED IT, because tuning string instruments have sounds more common in Eastern music than Western.

It's all perspective.


The paintings of naked women from 300 years ago were the "pornography" of their day. Now, they hang in museums.

Anyway, the important thing is that you express yourself. Don't worry if it's good or bad, or what other people will say. It doesn't really matter.

Try something new. Do your own thing. Life is short, just do it.

Kudos to everyone in this town that TRIES something new and different!

(Please. Do you think I worry about what other people think? Hello.)

It's easy to sit back and be a critic.

The hard thing is putting yourself out there.


And speaking of putting yourself OUT THERE....

For the UNTOUCHED (so to speak) photos of porn star, Peter South, join BadPuppy.com, and check out BigGayApple.TV, an affiliate of the Badpuppy.com network.

Of course you have to pay! I never said that art was always free...

"Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art."
--Andy Warhol

Next Trixie's Whorehouse Party - Sat. July 5th!


Best slumber costume wins $50 cash.

Everyone's a cross-dresser now....geez!

Just in case you didn't make it last time, here's a clip from the LAST Trixie's Whorehouse party!

Guess who I am?

;)

Trixie





Cyd Cherisse, we'll miss you.

You're an inspiration!

Gay Marriage, Joan Rivers, Bitterness....

Well, gay marriage is a reality in California.

The state of New York might recognize gay marriages performed outside the state. For the record, I fully support gay couples getting married...I just don't fully support many gay couples.

Call me an idealist. I've always thought it was about love and happiness...and sex.

But sometimes it's just money, complacency and co-dependence. Oh well, that's life, I guess.

Plus, it's not like straight people have done a better job at marriage, anyway.

On a different note, watch this clip of Joan Rivers, HYSTERICAL!!

Thank you T. for the link.

Charo at the Duchess County Fair a couple of years ago.
Thank you B&C!

Charo is still around and performing.

Like Joan Rivers, if you can see her perform, then do it!


This clip takes a little time to get going, but it's worth it! It's hilarious! Carol Burnett was ahead of her time.

Showgirls tonight - Monday - at Jason's Upstairs Bar

See Showgirls tonight at Jason's Upstairs bar with Erika.
I don't know what time. Maybe 8? Why not? That works.


I know what you're thinking.

You're thinking, "What the fuck, Trixie?" You haven't blogged in about a week, and now, like, ya know, what the fuck?

There are certain expressions that have become so common in our on-line lexicon that we can abbreviate them and people know what we're talking about....such as...

BRB = Be Right Back
WTF = What The Fuck?
TCPHARITFM = These cheap pantyhose have a run in them, Fuck Me!

Well, maybe some expressions are more common in my world than yours....

ANYWAY,

I've been so busy last week, my house is a disaster; contractors all week, the party, unpacking, my new job at InsideOut....and TWO benefits last week, that I still have to share photos with you, I'm so behind. And I still have more photos of "Peter South".

TDF

To Die For

I've been busy last week!

Come to Jason's tonight....and yell at me for getting a drink and procrastinating.

Here's a joke I heard yesterday....and yogis and not known for their sense of humor....


A Buddhist monk comes down from the mountain and wants a hot dog.

He walks up to the hot dog vendor and says, "Give me one with the works."

"OK."

The hot dog vendor gives the monk a hot dog and the monk hands him a twenty.

The vendor pockets the twenty and the monk looks at him and says,

"What about the change?"

The vendor looks at the monk and says,

"Change comes from within."

************************************

A little yogic humor to start your week off....if you need me to explain the joke to you, I will....sigh....see you at Jason's. Bye.

Photos from 80s Party and Prince's Birthday - Sat. June 7, 2008


Hudson, New York
June 7, 2008
Prince's 50th Birthday
with DJ Lisa and Abel



Saturday night was an excellent party - sans Gio - sad :(

People got dressed up, they danced, they had a great time.

Thank you, everyone! Thanks you for coming, thanks to Jason and his staff, and thanks to DJ Lisa and Abel.

And a big thank you to our costume winner, Erika, who stood behind me in the store, trying to zip up my dress. (I ended up having to get a bigger size.....no comment.)


Thank you, Erika, we love you!


You can sit at home, wondering,

"What about those bills?"
"What am I doing with my life?"
"Who will win Project Runway?"

Or, you can get a bunch of your friends together, go out, and forget about everything else for a night and just have a good time.

And that's it.

Life is short. ENJOY!

Thank you, HUDSON!

Love you,

Trixie






























Cute boys in dresses. Can a gal ask for anything else?
