It was the Glory of the 80's... @ 10:59 pm

Last week (well, over a last week ago)
I was to meet up with a friend (of a friend) at the East Side Club

Been there?

it's candy land for me
so many nice ole fat old daddies
furry and maybe a big confused
maybe sexy, maybe wondering...

well, i had a date
and Jorge called right before i headed up there
-- he'd never been there
so i invited him along for adventure

it was a day, for me, where i ran into people i'd not seen in a while
while walking around Chelsea
saw a lover of a guy i haven't seen in months
so walked up to his apartment

so i guess it was fortuitous
that when we got to the club the "radio" station they had on was all New Waves
maybe it was "greatest hits of the 80's"
or maybe it was just called "Glories of the New Wave Scene"...

That's what Jorge thought it was
slightly amused by the men
but greatly enthused by the music
he hunted down the videos for all the songs played that they
and i helped him post them in his journal

if you're thirsty for all the youth and glories of kids twenty years ago
walking through the dimly lit grey halls of a house of sex hounds
you should Follow This Link To Jorge's post to enjoy 40 videos you might not have seen [ever] in a while.

First Wave (Sirius Radio 22)

Indeed... What a glorious juxtaposition to be walking down those halls while listening to those ecstatic songs, which transported me to the days friends and I were creating the New Wave scene in Puerto Rico, with our outfits that raided our parents' closets, shaved eyebrows and makeup, and the feeling that every day is a dream...a feeling that lives in me.

When New Order's "Round and Round" was playing, I skipped down the hallway and was transported. As I was in a room, I heard Haircut 100...and I was comforted by sudden onslaught of my roots...a reminder of a journey of reverie. I remembered thinking that a bath house would be the perfect setting for say, Dead or Alive's glorious cover of KC and the Sunshine Band's "That's The Way (I Like It)."

Yes, these are the glories of the new wave scene. The radio station they were playing was Sirius First Wave (#22).

Music, always there, my beginning and end, and such a key to sharing...like now, with my dear partner.

Afternoon Handsome!

Was curious. What is the East Side Club like? Usually visit a bath house in Queens, but the travel time sometimes get to be a bit too much. ESC is relatively closer. Any info you can share, would be greatly appreciated.
