I'm Trying to Write a Headline Here But All I Can Think About Is Porno Robot

Johnny at the gala after his performance
Monday night at ITNY.
He presented an award to MAC Cosmetics
and was, by all accounts, adorable.

Kayso this is just a mishmash of stuff because I'm all ADD today with too many things I'm supposed to be doing and too many things distracting me from all the things I'm supposed to be doing and so completely not enough caffeine to even begin to cover it but essentially the salient points are:

(1) ITNY was brilliant and amazing. See above. And also below:

Johnny chatting in the hallway before the show.
(Note fabulous black nail polish.)
Thanks to Pat Goewey for posting this photo
to Johnny's FB fan page!

Happy Johnny!
Thanks to Anastasia Pryanikova for posting this one!

Johnny's performance of Heartbroken at ITNY.
Beautiful and poignant, every time.

(2) ALERT! We've got to step up our People's Choice voting!!!!
@amleonard83 is KILLING us with her tweet-voting for The Fabulous Beekman Boys in the #tvobsession category. While nine out of the Top Ten Tweeters remain BGJW voters, she has now claimed the #1 spot from @NatoMax, our secret nuclear voting weapon!! Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!! Nearly 3,000 votes per day are being tweeted in this category, and @amleonard83 has cast more than half of them. We've really got to ramp up our game here to get BGJW on the ballot--but, as the fans who tweeted more than 100,000 times in the NNN voting, we got this! So please keep obsessively tweeting:

Be Good Johnny Weir #tvobsession #peopleschoice

Voting ends Tuesday, November 9!

(3) Eric Alt's Halloween party is tomorrow! And a number of fans are planning on going! Which brings us to: What should Johnny wear?

Of course earlier this week he tweeted:

... a costume choice which clearly demands that someone twitpic the hell out of it.

However, rumor has it that this is NOT the costume he'll be wearing Thursday. I'm sure he's already decided, but just in case he's still looking for inspiration, here are our poll results from last week's survey!

Our top vote-getter was [insert mariachi music here. Or maybe, considering her attitude, something more Wagnerian ... ]: Estrellita (sparkly version)! Ah, Estrellita. You shall live on forever in infamy and hilarity. #hombre

Estrellita was followed closely by our number-two choice. With only a few votes separating him from Estrellita, our second place goes to the one and only Viacheslav Romanov. Because we miss him terribly and haven't seen nearly enough of him lately. Dear Viacheslav, please tell us you are not finish. Spasiba.

(Oooooo ... or Johnny could do some kind of Victor/Victoria thing, with half of him dressed as sparkly Estrellita, barking commands at everyone, and the other half as Viacheslav, who keeps alternating between doing a dead-on impression of her in a thick Russian accent and repeating that he just wants to #peeinpeace.)

Rounding out the top five were: A geisha, a lifeguard in a white Speedo, and Michelangelo's David. All of which I'm sure Johnny could pull off inimitably. Possibly all at once.

We also had quite a few write-in votes, so I'm letting you guys write the rest of this entry with a selection of your ideas because I am now further distracted from the stuff that's distracting me from the stuff I'm supposed to be doing by the indescribably delicious image of Estrellita and Viacheslav going on a date ...

In honor of GaGa's meat dress, Johnny could rock the raw chicken breast epaulets suggested in BGJW "The Future Is Mine" as part of a Sgt. Pepper-style outfit with pants made of feathers!

Adam Ant or Ziggy Stardust (two write-in votes each).

A fairy godfather in a pink crystal suit and designer sunglasses, with wings and a really cool starburst wand.

Paint yourself day-glo orange, pour a quart of Wesson over your head and go as Evan.

A Russian soldier.

An oiran. (Not the same as a geisha. See, this is not only fun, it's educational! Because who isn't distracted enriched by learning about the distinctions among Japanese "pleasure district" courtesans? I know I am ...)

A can of Pledge.

Karl Lagerfeld.

Brian Slade from Velvet Goldmine.

A rock star wearing snug leather pants, a snug shirt and jacket... In other words, kind of like he looked at #FFANY!

Tara! (BTW his impression of her in "The Future Is Mine" is priceless.)

King of Weirlandia (with a kitten as an accessory, of course).

Cleopatra. He'd be hot in ancient Egyptian drag.

Hockey player with a bedazzled rendition of a hockey uniform.

Tim Burton's Corpse Bride!

Steve from Blue's clues.

I would also like to suggest Rachel's "stuffed animal dress" from Glee. :)

Augh! This is unfair! There's too many good choices and I wanna see him in everything! One more: Trophy housewife 'cause he'd be stunning!

Designer T. Rains and Johnny have teamed up to raise money and awareness for The Trevor Project!

Binky, thanks for posting all of the vote for sites, again. I keep loosing track. Notes, where are my notes to self? Ack! Which Gemini twin is the one with ADD? Oh nos, not both? Oy.....

Costume for Johnny. Perhaps he could go as himself, i.e. Great Elven Prince of yore;-) The Prince whose return has completely charmed and bedazzled us beyond reason.

What's a slore gotta do to tweet Johnny back to the top? Create more personas to vote from. Then it shall be done.

Besides, I'm still unemployed, and what's more important? Job searching or tweeting for Johnny? I think we all know the answer to that one. (Well, okay. I promise to apply for a job then tweet, apply then tweet, ad nauseum)

The ITNY performance was well, heartbreaking - again. Response afterwards was electrifying. Proof again that Johnny Weir is the skater for the people.

Also finally met MICHAEL MAZZELLA!! He is squeezably soft and a delight to be with. ♥

Deartest Binky!
Thank you so for the HIGH-LARIOUS morning visuals! Also the photos aren't too bad either...sigh...sigh...sigh!
Your biggest fan for LIFE!

aaaack said...

Misfit, you bring so many images dancing in our brains. You, and Johnny, never fail to surprise and astound.

WheresMyKoppy said...

Maggie, you can NOT have Michael! Cause then he would never go back to L.A. and Lisa and Julie and the rest of us on this side of the country would never see him again! LOL!

Hard to believe anyone could out tweet PrincessJohnnyLuv (one of our biggest NNN tweeters) and Natomax! Got to get on it! I have a screen name I created just for stuff like this so I don't fill up people's feed, but I can't be signed into both and I guess I've been afraid I would miss something or not get something else done... Maybe later tonight!

Once again MM, great blog! And thanks for keeping us updated on the voting and everything else you keep track of for us!

Princess Johnny-Love ♥ said...

Thank you, Binky, for the lovely pics and beautiful vid, and the results of the vote. Sooo funny!!! I especially appreciate your educational introduction to an oiran. ;)

Thanks for the mention ;)

Misfit Mimes said...

@ amleonard83: Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!! :)

(And good luck--actually I hope they both get on the ballot, because your dedicated voting is an inspiration to us all!)

Good luck to you too, everyone deserves the chance to be on the ballot. If we were fighting on the same team, we'd be unstoppable.
