When Custom Goes Crazy

Of all the luxury brands out there, few have the provenance or the fabulousness of Louis Vuitton.

Since 1854, Louis Vuitton has been one of the most legendary houses of fashion in the world. Since LV only sells its products through its own retail stores and small boutiques in high-end department stores, you can be sure that if you're buying your LV anywhere else, it's fake.

I could delve into the history of this world recognized brand, but you could just as easily explore it on the Wiki.

One of the things that sets LV apart from it's luxury competitors is it's custom and special order business. There is almost nothing that can't be personalized to your every whim.

Poodle has always had the dream of getting an LV steamer trunk and transforming it into a coffee table. I kind of like this floating trunk wall with the LV wall treatment.

Take a look at some actual custom-made, one-of-a-kinds, directly from the Louis Vuitton website.

...and there's the following...

Chopsticks and Mah Jong, with cases. LV knows their demographics.

The LV skateboard and case was created to celebrate the Stephen Sprouse collaboration. On the right, a chainsaw. Heck, if Gucci can make one...

Louis Vuitton teamed up with Lexus and created custom luggage in Graphite, designed specifically for the Lexus Essence. On the right, Karl Lagerfeld's infamous custom made case for his 20 iPods.

Which is fake? André Leon Talley's LV tennis towel, or this Mexican hacienda?

I'm pretty sure the band-aids and garbage bags are fake....

...but a Louis Vuitton jockstrap, while not very practical (think of chafing) would be very cool!

Sunday Confession

Tyler "Cody" Cummings is The Lisp's first Sunday Confession.

Cody once had almost every gay man wrapped around his sinewy thigh, but after eons of solo performances and slower than molasses man-on-man action, he has created a decisive split amongst the gays.

Regardless of his reluctance to embrace homo-love and denounce his 100% straight labeling, he is still an object of fantasy 'round these parts. Especially when he doesn't strip off his hirsuteness.

The Lisp has had only but a glance at Mr. Cummings' body hair, and has been unable to locate a still image of him in his beefy, hairy glory.

In the meantime, won't you enjoy what we do have, up to and including his neck tattoo, which we find utterly delectable.

Seasons Of Concern

Join Season of Concern's Team in the AIDS Run & Walk Chicago one week from today to fight complacency and support HIV/AIDS efforts in Chicagoland - - or if you are not available to participate, sponsor me!

Season of Concern, the Chicagoland theatre community's fundraising effort providing compassionate care to those in our community who are experiencing the effects of HIV/AIDS and other catastrophic illnesses, is proudly sponsoring a team in the AIDS Foundation of Chicago's annual AIDS Run & Walk Chicago on October 3rd.

And once again this year, Season of Concern will receive 100% of all funds raised through our team!

By participating in the AIDS Run & Walk Chicago on Season of Concern's Team, 100% of the funds raised through your pledges will go directly to Season of Concern - - that includes registration fees and matching gifts!

As a longtime supporter of Season of Concern, you know that we contribute to programs that provide direct-care support to members of the theatre community and others in the Chicago area. Since 1988, funds have been raised through generous gifts from theatre artists, staffs, boards and audiences. Funds supported include The Actors Fund and The Biscotto-Miller Fund, SOC's internal fund which provides personal financial support, housing care, meals, medications, legal assistance and a variety of other services to theatre community members in need.

Since it was founded in 2001, AIDS Run & Walk Chicago has netted over $2 million to battle the epidemic. By walking or running for Season of Concern's Team, you can continue your incredible support of our mission knowing that we will receive 100% of the funds raised through your pledges! Or if you are not available to participate in the AIDS Run/Walk Chicago, you can sponsor me, another member of Season of Concern's Team or the Team itself! Every single dollar raised by our Team will go directly to Season of Concern.

I hope that you will consider participating in the AIDS Run & Walk Chicago as a member of Season of Concern's Team or that you will sponsor one of our Team Members. Last year, SOC had two teams participating - - our own team and a team from Chicago's WICKED & JERSEY BOYS! The two teams combined to blow our $10,000 goal out of the water with over $20,000 raised!

That's our goal for this year's team - - $20,000. As of today, we've raised just over $5,000. We need your help to make our goal!

To join Season of Concern's Team, simply click the "Click here to register" link below and complete the New Participant Registration. Then, click on "Join an Existing Team" and search for "Season of Concern" under Team Name. After that, simply follow the prompts to set your personal fundraising goal, register as a walker or runner, pay your registration fee ($25 - - and all $25 goes directly to Season of Concern!) and begin your fundraising!

Your help is greatly needed. This year, on June 6, 2009, the world marked the 28th anniversary since the discovery of the virus that came to be known as AIDS. Even though medical advancements have changed AIDS from a death sentence to a chronic disease, we are still without a vaccine or a cure. In fact, the CDC projects that each year nearly 60,000 Americans become infected with HIV disproportionately impacting young minority communities and young gay males. With this, the need for sound and effective HIV/AIDS prevention, service, and policy programs are more critical than ever before.

With your help, I know that Season of Concern can accomplish our fundraising goal of $25,000 in pledges. Thank you so much for your support and your generosity!

Once again, I have a Steve in Atlanta post, inspired by one of his emails. In fact, Steve has given me so many ideas, I've decided to give him his own tag! Cheers, baby!

I will start by saying that I love gadgets. Kitchen gadgets. I also love kitsch, but I don't own a lot of it. If you can combine the two, then I'm as happy as fat kid in a tub full of Skittles.

These look like a lot of fun and would come in handy for some great themed cocktail parties!

These Shooter cubes look pretty great, especially if you're feasting on mussels and doing shots of Vodka. Just be sure to drink before your glass melts. You don't want to waste good voddy.

Available here.

The "Bone Chillers" look fun for a Halloween party. Imagine a big bowl of Toxic Punch with Skull & Crossbones floating in the brew! Fun!

Available here.

A birthday party seems like the perfect occasion for false teeth ice cubes.

Available here.

Gin and Titonic (I fucking love that!) are perfect, especially when you get some of those jewels that old bat dropped into the ocean.

Titonic Cubes available here.

Jewels available here.

My favourite, by far, are the AK Frozen Bullets. They look sexy, modern and are perfect for the "killer cocktail" that Poodle mixes you.

Trust me.

Available here.

Sticker Shock

Poodle and I just got an estimate from a landscape contractor to redo
our front walkway and garden.

How can I sum this up?

Oh! I know!
