Quote of the Damn Day from a Web Site for Peter Berlin


This shit made me laugh.

Beginning in the early 1970s, Peter Berlin created groundbreaking gay iconic imagery, first as a street persona in New York and San Francisco, then as a filmmaker and photographer. Since that time, Berlin's films, photography, and artwork have been exhibited and admired the world over. [Not this part--keep reading.]

Perhaps the most unusual and unique aspect of Berlin's work is its narcissism—he served as his own photographer and model, rarely allowing others into the frame. The results are stunning, sexy, and classic.

It's sort of what I do here--rarely allow others into the frame. It's my blog, bitch!

Besides, with junk like Peter has, no other bitches really fit in the damn frame anyway.

Peter Berlin trivia: What was Peter Berlin's real name? [Answer below.]

Armin Hagen Freiherr von Hoyningen-Huene. [Fuck me. This shit makes Rumpelstiltskin look like Smith or Jones.]

[Hat tip to SB's friend and idol, West Hollywood Voyeur, for introducing me to Peter. Laugh.]

Yeah, I just wanna post an update as of April 2012 and completely recant my previous statement and belief that he was ever my true friend. As you will see on my blog HERE:
http://deniselafrancethepainter.blogspot.ca/2014/02/peter-berlin-ectomy-peter-berlin-now.html

I was sadly mistaking a malignant narcissist sociopath for a friend. He was never my friend but rather, a jealous, 2-faced, back stabbing liar and gossip.
