When was the last time you had a crush on someone? The giddiness bristling through you like a wave of goosebumps. I feel like I’m constantly crushing on people. At first blush it’s easy to see what you want and to read what has been presented. Chiseled, warm, intelligent, Anthony @sweeetserialkiller is a prime candidate for #MCM material. When you meet him it’s very hard to not see a dreamy dancing fantasy. But behind it all there’s so much more and it’s that life of a complex person that may end up not being the dream you had once dreamt. And maybe it’s less? But maybe it’s much more?

“I am in a constant battle with people perceiving me as something I’m the complete opposite of. Social media has given people the misconception to think they know who they follow and through what they post. People think I’m this super sexual being who goes out every night to party because I post pictures in my underwear and videos having fun with my friends. It’s funny because all of my friends call me ‘Grandpa’. I’m always canceling plans and staying home because I’m usually tired from my hectic life! As for the sexual part, I just enjoy being naked. I joke around and say I’m asexual although I’m not. It’s really just a defense mechanism to keep boys away from me.” Crazy as that may sound to some of us, it’s testament to the importance of one’s own intention to invest in the practices that give us the most fulfillment. “I’m at a point in my life where I want to focus on me and my craft. My aspirations as a dancer is to just keep performing, hopefully all over the world. The feeling of performing on stage fuels me and makes me happiest.”

Our #mcm goes out to my friend Mitcheal Pope whose birthday was yesterday. In light of the mystifying #JussieSmollett news it’d be salient to remember my friend who was among the sweetest, most creative people I met upon moving to NYC in ‘05. He had kindness and humility, and could throw a serious Leigh Bowery-level-look together and vogue across a dance floor for minutes, ricocheting from wall to wall like a bumper car. . I think he’d have liked me to honor his memory but also to let people know to not get it fucked up—Our community is far more vulnerable to violence and hate crime than most. . I thought he’d recover after he told me he’d been attacked in Crowne Heights in October 2014 after he was out just grabbing a coffee on a Monday morning. . When he returned home, he let a man in behind him, thinking he was an on site construction worker. But when he went to get his mail, the bum ass coward attacked him with a hammer, shouting anti-gay slurs. . Mitcheal told NBC4NY, "As soon as I got into the staircase, I was hit from the back unexpectedly. I fell down the stairs backwards, and he got on top of me and started hitting me.” . "I thought he was going to take my life," he said. "I was struggling to save my life." . The attack left him with a fractured skull and several gashes to his head. . “Right after the incident, everything appeared to be normal,” Mitcheal’s mother, Agnes Watson told the Post. A month later, “all of a sudden he really, really started acting different. He was becoming delusional and paranoid.” . If you knew him, he was brave but gentle and highly relatable. Mitcheal, uncharacteristically, took his own life in mid-January 2016, jumping from his third-story window. . His family said the city medical examiner ruled out drugs and said a brain injury could have affected his behavior. . NYPost: “Whoever did this to my son back in October should be held responsible,” Watson said. “He absolutely contributed to my son’s death.” . One suspect was arrested on 11/7/15 in relation to the bashing, which police classified as an anti-gay hate crime, but was released on his alibi. “The police are not doing what they need to do.

GAY DIVORCE NYC WORLDPRIDE2019 T-SHIRT
GUTS NYC
$30 – $35

I make the kind of T-shirts that I’d like to find in future thrift shops; a new companion with its own story from a former life.

I knew I’d have to cook something up to celebrate the monumental NYC WorldPride 2019. What I didn’t want to do was make something that felt pandering or kitschy, perhaps the more lucrative route—A route I foolishly evade at every opportunity. READ MORE

OVERSIZE “THE FACE” T-SHIRT
GUCCI
$550

As someone who is, above other forms, a print designer, I’m beginning to miss the tactile world. The smell and weight of paper. And before the “world wide web,” magazines were an instrumental way to dip into the ephemeral currents of how culture was evolving.

One of my favorite publications was The Face, a British music, fashion and culture monthly magazine published from 1980 to 2004. I trusted its journalism and respected it’s taste.  READ MORE

BRYAN PANT SU19
STÜSSY
$179.95

Can you believe the word fuccboi has been around so long that it’s already adapted a new disambiguation? Now I don’t know precisely which came first but I remember when fuccbois were just hypebeastswaiting for hours outside the Supreme store for a new drop in their Pyrex shorts.

Now I think it’s fair to still consider Supreme a fuccboi staple. People will spend 800% mark up for what is basically an iron on print t-shirt. That’s what we call (in a less gay context) dickriding. READ MORE

Us (dir. Jordan Peele)
[Digital / Blu-ray/ DVD]
$22.99

If you’re into cinema then you’ve probably heard everything there is to say about Us—Which is a lot. From funny, confusing, frustrating, stunning, to gaining masterpiece status with a 94% fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes.

This is coming after the pitch perfect release of Jordan Peele’s freshman debut Get Out, which underscored that not only are black narratives potentially lucrative, they are a genre that is implicitly rich with unmined possibility and content. READ MORE
