You guys are such freaks! If only you knew Woy Woy- I saw and then met the Monkees in Woy Woy. Just to the north you'll find the equally stunning Budgie Woy where the pace of living is altogether less frenetic, the atmosphere not nearly so metropolitan.
I can't believe you called KMart Woy Woy you mad fuckers!
Do you know which drag-shop you called. There's a new one has a perfect reproduction of Dorothy's Wizard of Oz dress in the window except it's hooped at the bottom. I haven't looked in there yet because everything will be 500% what it costs in New York. I wish I'd bought more of the MatesseNYC pigments.
Sexual Services... we tend to be more liberal than America on what you can do-- just not what one can watch/read/hear etc. [No constitutional Freedom of Speech] A very pragmatic approach to the sex industry dominates all states now. It's partially an outcome of a sane & rapid response to HIV. The other big factor is that if it's legal the police can't take a cut. Legalised prostitution is considered the best way to achieve maximum well-being for all involed. Conservatives hate it of course and different states have weird laws but it's largely good.
Stuff like SOPS [sex on premises venues] are taken for granted in Sydney- http://www.headquarters.com/http://sydneycitysteam.com.au/
I was surprised at how secretive it all is in New York. I found a very interesting basement but it was purely by chance, albeit chance propelled by a curiosity about why all these hot men were going into a tiny bookshop and not coming out again.
Anyway- damn poor luck to miss you all. I went out for a skate under sufferance because I knew I was sitting around being depressed and inactive... If my understanding of the new time difference [NY summertime is on but our is off!] is good I missed you by 30-45mins at most.
I *think* the time difference means I'll be home to try getting a feed on Braden's 'radio' show. If I'm right I have time before I leave for my regular Monday morning Doctorfication.
