WIM GRIFFITH

A MULTI-MEDIA ARTIST

ON THE SENSUALITY OF THE MALE

One local gallery in Palm Springs

displays the art of Wim Griffith. Wim

works with a variety of art media and

creates, paintings, murals, and unique

sculptures which are created from

sheets

of steel. The steel is cut with a welding

torch to reveal male figures in a new

way to view the contours of the male

figure. Although the material is hard

and immobile the figures become

alive and evocative modeling erotic

poses in the cut steel as if they were a

spontaneous silhouette drawing.

Griffith a Long Beach native has been

creating art since 1973. After graduating

from Woodbury University in Los Angeles

with a degree in design he worked

painting murals with a designer in

Hollywood. He also created bronze

sculpture busts of numerous celebrities

An Important Message From The Desert

Rose Playhouse

Many of you have no doubt seen an

email or post similar to the one below but

this is still an area we really need your help

in.

square foot facility, we had very high

hopes for the future of the Desert Rose

Playhouse. We have always prided ourselves

on being the “Communities Theatre”

and we strive to make the Desert

Rose Playhouse a place for everyone who

might not ever be given the chance to

have their projects fully staged and produced,

the rare opportunity to see their

vision become a reality and give them a

platform for their art.

If nothing else, please watch the video

below and consider donating, reserving

your seats for one of our many upcoming

productions, sign up to volunteer, or simply

help spread the word in our community.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dso1TQ7drk

We simply would not still be here today

had it not been for the past support we received

from our community that allowed

us to make it through that very difficult

and unprecedented time.

Thank you so much for helping us stay

afloat!

But with this much larger venue, comes

greater costs. Rent tripled, utilities quadrupled,

performance rights for MainStage

productions since Covid have more than

tripled in most cases, and with Covid recommendations

for safe public gatherings,

we are still only allowed to currently sell

half of the capacity for the room to maintain

safe distancing for patrons.

Bottom line is we are currently having to

deal with considerably higher operational

and production costs with only gaining 40

additional seats.

Ticket sales alone cannot take care of all

the expenses we have incurred.

It is because of a supportive community By law, to maintain a 501 (C)3 Non-Profit

When we took on converting the 7,000

10 Never miss a DDG we are always FREE only at ddg.gay continud on next page


A sold out run of 10 shows only generates

around $40,000. That gross is quickly

eaten up by the costs of paying stipends

for cast, crew pay for staff, performance

rights for each show, equipment maintanence

for lighting, sound, projections,

makeup, costumes, set building supplies

and construction on top of rent, electricity,

etc.

No one who dedicates their life to the Arts

in in it to get rich. Quite the opposite I’m

afraid. And with only a few donations in

the last year, these costs hit even harder.

For many of the past weeks there have

been some of us who don’t even take a

weekly pay or stipend.

In short, the future of your community theatre

is ultimately in your hands.

Our fiscal year ends July 31st. We are still

way below the 1/3 coverage by donations/grants

mentioned above and currently

it is a very possible that we will lose

out non-profit status if we don’t turn things

around, and fast!

On top of all of this, our roof is leaking and

continuously getting worse. with the 7 AC

units running in the summer and spring

and the rain we get in the fall and winter

cause multiple areas of dripping in the

theatre. More often than not it is dripping

water on seats, damaging very expensive

equipment and we have recently had a

leak that ruined several of our very expensive

fireproof commercial grade stage

curtains and scrims. At present, we simply

do not have the needed funds to properly

fix these issues and repair and replace the

roof and AC units so the problem is starting

to escalate.

So what can you do?

Community Support is the key to helping

us thrive, helping us survive.

Please take a moment to check out out

multiple options for support below.

Our “Ally” and “Mamma Rose” options

are both monthly and start at only $10.00.

We understand that for some, even that is

not possible but for many of you it would

have no affect on your bottom line while

making a huge impact on the availability

of enjoying the Arts in your Community.

We have around 4,000 subscribers subscribed

to this email list. If even half of

you showed your support via the “Ally”

sponsor option of $10 a month, we’d have

more than enough money to stay afloat

and continue to not only produce high

quality productions, but continue to make

them even better, even greater!

We Thank You So Much for your Continued

Support!

If you cannot donate yourself, please

share this around, make sure that anyone

who wants to help us and donate knows

how and why donating to us benefits the

community.

We have said it so many times before because

it is true, WE CAN NOT DO IT WITH-

OUT YOU!

Thank You!

Peaches Christ’s Long Lost Cult Film All About

Evil Resurrected This June

Natasha Lyonne (“Russian Doll”) Leads an

All-Star Cast

Severin Films Releasing Special Edition Bluray

As Campy Gorefest Debuts On Shudder

Peaches Christ to Host Gala Screenings

Along West Coast

All About Evil combines a wildly imaginative

script with eye-popping buckets of blood.

The film is anchored by a first-class cast:

Natasha Lyonne (“Russian Doll”, “Orange is

the New Black”) as the mad projectionist,

Thomas Dekker (“Terminator: The Sarah

Connor Chronicles”, Kaboom), Cassandra

Peterson (Elvira: Mistress of the Dark, Rob

Zombie’s The Munsters), John Waters muse

Mink Stole (Serial Mom, Hairspray), and Noah

Segan (Knives Out, Looper).

“The Ultimate Valentine to low-budget

horror.” -- SFGATE

Los Angeles, CA - Following a world premiere

at the San Francisco International Film

Festival and a limited theatrical run in 2010,

Peaches Christ’s All About Evil disappeared

underground for years, becoming the stuff

of legend. Now, the demented, bloodsplattered

classic is back for good, courtesy

of a June 10th special edition Blu-ray release

from Severin Films and a North American

streaming release on Shudder June 13th.

The Blu-ray of All About Evil will feature a

brand-new HD restoration of the feature,

along with newly-produced and archival

bonus features for fans to devour. Severin

Filmswill release the Blu-ray on June 10th.

Shudder will release the film on its service

June 13th to subscribers in North America.

Of the film’s long awaited resurrection,

Peaches Christ shared, “For years, the movie

has been unavailable and fans have been

clamoring for it. As the creator, it’s been

frustrating to say the least. I feel like I’ve

been given a great gift from both Severin

and Shudder and am thrilled so many new

people will discover my Evil little baby. The

BluRay and features are truly stunning. I’m

really proud of the film and am hoping the

re-release helps get another feature film

going!”

In the years since the birth of All About Evil,

Peaches Christ has toured the globe, scaring

and delighting audiences. For the past

two years, Peaches has hosted Midnight

Mass with Michael Varrati (Tales of Poe,

“Dragula”), a podcast based on Peaches’

long-running cult movie series in San

Francisco. Every week, the pair go deep into

discussions on the nature and fanbase of

cult cinema, discussing everything from the

To celebrate, Peaches Christ herself will

present the film at “Peaches Christ 4-D

Screenings” along the West Coast, including

the Los Feliz 3 in Los Angeles on June 9 and

the Victoria Theater in San Francisco on

June 11 where the film was shot. Fans in Los

Angeles can also attend a Blu-ray signing

News on

Today, the conservative majority of United

States Supreme Court struck down a law

that prevents potential corruption from

arising when politicians make large personal

loans to their own campaigns only to repay

them with donations received after Election

Day. Candidates will now be able to take

out millions of dollars in personal loans for

their campaigns that can be repaid after

the election by special interest donors

who are effectively depositing money into

a politicians’ personal bank accounts.

Common Cause filed an amicus brief in

Federal Election Commission (FEC) v. Ted

Cruz for Senate with the Campaign Legal

Center (CLC), Citizens for Responsibility

and Ethics in Washington (CREW), and

Democracy 21.

The federal law, part of the Bipartisan

Campaign Reform Act, limited candidates

from using more than $250,000 in

contributions raised after the date of an

election to repay outstanding personal

loans candidates make to their campaigns.

In 2018, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-T.X.) put $260,000 of

his own money into his reelection and sued

the FEC the following year, complaining that

this law prevented him from paying off the

last $10,000 with post-election contributions.

Last June, the United States Court of

Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit

sided with Sen. Cruz, striking down the limit

on the amount candidates can raise postelection

to repay personal loans to their

campaigns.

Statement of Common Cause President

Karen Hobert Flynn

Today’s ruling is the latest blow struck by

the Roberts Court against common sense

campaign finance laws designed to curb

corruption and potential corruption by our

federal officials. The U.S. Supreme Court with

its current majority has showed its hostility

to effective (and popular) laws enacted

to fight political corruption and ensure our

elected officials are more responsive to the

public, not just the wealthy few. This is the

same Court that has severely weakened

voting rights laws like the Voting Rights Act,

including the Shelby County decision nine

years ago and the Brnovich decision just last

summer.

With today’s new ruling, donors will now

be able to deposit more money into the

personal bank accounts of politicians

after Election Day. As Justice Kagan wrote

in her dissent this morning, “it takes no

political genius to see the heightened risk

of corruption—the danger of ‘I’ll make

you richer and you’ll make me richer’

arrangements between donors and

officeholders.”

Today’s decision creates a shell game that

will only serve to further undermine public

faith in their elected officials. These loans

could run into the millions of dollars and

voters will now not know who bankrolled

a candidate’s campaign until after the

election.

Two Men of

Taunton Project

Part

2

preamble

Two Men

of Taunton

is about

revolution,

as it

happened.

If you grew up in Taunton, you also

learned it is considered “tidal” (saltwater

mix) for the last eighteen miles and is

characterized by a gentle gradient,

dropping only twenty feet in elevation

over its forty-mile course. Taunton

swamps are full of clay, and Bog Iron,

the only two ingredients needed to

smelt them into cannonballs.

As It turns out, Tanton was the first station

of an endless supply chain to wage war.

It should remind us of the importance

of this first election after a recent coup

attempt that was put down. From the

very first tea party and early British trials,

to our nation’s first flag, and the petty

squabbles of great minds. Because the

second settlement in Taunton started it

the war,

ROBERT TREAT PAINE

Memorial Statue, Taunton

Every schoolchild learns that Geologic

evidence indicates that 10,000 years

ago, the landscape of southeastern

Massachusetts was covered by ice

flows. Retreating glaciers created

a large glacial lake that eventually

drained to become the Taunton River

and its tributaries. This river system

ran through a landscape of glacial

deposition that included outwash plains,

wetlands, and kettle ponds.

Two long-vanished Yankee gentlemen, with

the hope that another generation may find

profit or pleasure in reading of men who

held high seats in the councils of their day.

The fact that a Taunton resident was a

signer of the Declaration of Independence

demonstrates the influence the city had

during the Revolutionary War!

Evan is Heaven

The OnlyFans Star Has the Voice of an Angel

By Robbie Todoro

Evan Peix is heating up gay

dance floors with two

energetic Spanish-language

singles, “Tu Si” and “Me

Elevas.” The songs are part

of a music genre called

“Guaracha,” a Cuban sound

that combines bold lyrics

with hip-shaking tempo.

“I was introduced to

Guaracha two years ago

while in Colombia,” Evan

says. “A cab driver played

Fumaratto’s ‘Me Provocas’

and it literally threw me into

a three-minute trance! I

went into the studio to try

my hand at recreating the

sound. That’s when ‘Tu-Si’

was born.”

After dropping out of high

school at 18, he moved to

Miami with $500 in his

pocket. A gym buddy

suggested he try stripping

and when he did, he found

it to be, in his words, “easy

as breathing”. It was also

very lucrative. He saved

$60,000, enrolled in audio

engineering school, and

began producing songs

and videos.

“I play instruments, dance,

sing, tumble… give me a

stripper pole and prepare

to be amazed,” he laughs.

He is also a social

advocate. Evan runs “The

Dreamer Project,” an

initiative that raises money

for the needy in South

America. They are currently

raising funds for Niños del

Sol, an orphanage in

Medellin, Colombia.
