Club Kids Bus Trip

For a few years I was friends with Ernie Glam. I had some interesting times hanging out with him in the late 80s. The video above is quite the mind trip. How Christina is discussed is facinating.

“The Club Kids were a group of young New York City club personalities mostly led by Michael Alig and James St. James in the late 1980s and early 1990s.” – Wikipedia

Michael Alig to Be Released from Prison

Blackbook Magazine has an article from Steve Lewis that infamous club kid Michael Alig will soon be released from prison. In the late 80s I was friends with Ernie Glam who lived with Keoki and Alig near FIT in the garment district. Michael was always friendly to me. The apartment was across from Rogue Music and was filled with childrens furniture. One night I went out with the three of them and Alig was wearing one of is usual insane outfits: adult diapers. Some idiot outside whatever club we were at clocked Alig in the head. Michael just stood up gave him the finger and we moved on. Say what you will about him he was certainly tougher than he looked. He did a clearly bad thing but I’m not going to judge him. It will be very interesting to see his next steps. Will he find celebrity again or fade into history? What do you think?

Here’s something to think about: He get’s out before October 31. Halloween approaches and the big question pops into his head. Do I dress up? [Director: roll evil 80s music here!]

“He isn’t the cute kid from before, or the drug crazed demon, murderer and manipulator. A judge ruled a long time ago that he would serve a long sentence in a horrible place for what he did. He has served this sentence and during this time has had his ups and downs. We, in the perfect world, have also had our ups and downs. In the joint things can get exaggerated, escalate dramatically. Now it’s almost time for the world to embrace one of its lost souls again. Those who choose not to forgive must be respected, but those who will give from themselves and find forgiveness must be respected as well…” – Steve Lewis
