The Spectre is Haunting Europe

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010
By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, old Europe is in trouble: governments teeter on the edge of collapse, unemployment is at the record highs, social unrest grows. Dark days loom!

And yet, all of this is the mere sunny walk in the park compared to the true disaster barreling down the road towards the continent…. The Eurovision Song Contest!!!!!


Yes, it all starts out so innocently…
Finally, a use for all those unemployed Soviet biological warfare scientists.

With bizarre Belurusian human-butterfly genetic mutations!

What is it with the wings this year?

To be countered by glittery Maltese bird men, hovering ominously behind Justin Beiber-esque divas.
But this is the mere prelude to the true atrocity, the one which, no matter whatever precautions may be taken, inevitably makes its disastrous appearance at the Eurovision…


Salacious Dances, Past and Present

Monday, May 24th, 2010
By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo said, Ayyyyy! It is the competitive pole dancing…

Naturally, the Manolo had no idea that this was so athletic, knowing so little as he does about the modern demi-monde. Nor did he realize that the competitive pole dancing costumes were no less salacious than, say, the women’s beach volleyball, or the Cirque du Soleil. Indeed, this has the strong resemblance to the high-end French Canadian circusry. Although, one does wish they had the better taste is the shoes.

Frankly, competitive pole dancing seems antiseptic, and mostly asexual, more similar to the the display of physical culture than the tawdry eroticism. So serious and martial, like the exercises done by the women of Sparta.

But, as we all know, last century’s forbidden dance, is this century’s historical curiosity…

Now, this, the cancan as imagined by Jean Renoir, is bacchic eroticism on the profound scale, so appealing and abandoned and natural that one wishes to be transported to this place, if only to drink champagne and observe.

P.S. The Manolo tip his chapeau claque to the Ka-Ching

Special Guest Blogger: Cojo!!

Monday, April 12th, 2010
By Manolo the Shoeblogger

Manolo says, the Manolo is nearly hyperventilating with excitement to announce that this week’s special guest blogger will be the sassy, super fantastic, superstar of the red carpet interviews, Steven Cojocaru, better known as Cojo!

The Manolo has long been the fan of the Cojo, not just because he is hilariously funny and warm, but also because he is perhaps one of the most perceptive fashion advisers and critics of the past decade, and now, to add to his lengthy list of achievements, he is blogging up some of the sharpest and wittiest celebrity commentary on the intertubes.

And so all week long the Manolo and the Cojo will be posting on each others blogs, so you must visit frequently, as it is certain to be much fun.

The Love Marriage
