Two words: disco smoke.  Today’s Sparkle Video has Mankind swimming in the most lush and billowing cloud of smoke I have ever seen and I just want to jump right into it!  This creative decision was 100% the right one, because the it’s the only way this disco-tastic sci-fi sound should ever be presented.  The “Dr. Who Theme” is like a party waiting to explode all over the stage.  No wait- it is a party and those guys are totally feeling it, but where are the spaced-out sparkle sluts dancing behind them?  Read between the lines, Soldiers!  It was Top of the Pops and the 70’s after all, so most likely they’re partying backstage in the green room.


Fashion Preview 1980’s

You are looking at one of the most amazing things ever.   The “Fashion Preview 1980’s” you see above is from an issue of US magazine dated January 8,1980 and features an interview with our hero, designer Larry LeGaspi, pictured here flanked with models wearing his glorious space-age creations.  I’m gagging about discovering that he also made wedding gowns and I imagine that any bride wearing a LeGaspi down the aisle was the most gorgeously galactic woman on the planet.   I also love that he “called it” back in then, saying that the children of that time would someday be living in outer space– and as we know, it’s not that far away Soldiers!

A big glittering “thank you'” goes out to Jane, a very special Sparkle Soldier, who knew that this would be a dazzling addition to my archives- THANK YOU SO MUCH JANE!
This should also serve as a reminder of how important it is for the Sparkle Army to look out for one another.  And by “look out for one another”,  I mean that any information, photos or other material having to do with Larry LeGaspi (especially any of his priceless vintage creations!) be sent my way immediately.

Empress of the Aliens Barbie

Check this out Soldiers:  I go off on vacation to Berlin (another legendary marathon of fun, thanks for asking!) and while I’m away, Empress of the Aliens™ Barbie® makes her gorgeous debut and bloody sells out!  How could she not, in this glamorously galactic outfit made of iridescent metallics and chiffon?   Plus, both arms and legs are “encircled in ornate cuffs” just like a proper Space Princess.  Like Goddess of the Galaxy™ Barbie® , she was designed by Bill Greening, who has truly cinched the nomination for my new fashion hero, especially with his attention to detail by adding a scorpion-esque head dress, sparkle-tastic eye makeup and fabulously sexy shoes.

Top honors also go out because she is shown modeling in front of a Space Background, similar to the one we had at last year’s Join the Sparkle Army party.  Which reminds me Soldiers, the reason I was in Berlin, aside from vacation, was for a “top secret meeting”.  Yes indeed …the planning has begun.


Sare Havlicek Radio

His album “Toscana Nights” released in July of last year is still in heavy rotation at mine because it’s a dazzlingly solid journey through the galaxy set to our much beloved disco beat and perfect for dancing under laser beams and smoke machines.  Tonight, Sare Havlicek is taking his newest trip through space on pure.fm with the first of his new monthly radio shows called “Disco Recreation”.  There is no other kind of recreation as far as I’m concerned so I’ve cleared my schedule and so should you.  By the way, speaking of clearing schedules… stay tuned for more fabulous news coming soon regarding all of the above and gobs of SPARKLES..  but in the meantime, enjoy one of my favorite tracks!

Goddess of the Galaxy Barbie

Am I dreaming.. can someone pinch me? Or, have I died and gone to Space Disco Heaven?   My favorite superstar doll of all time, who already has hundreds of Mackies in her closet, is now stepping out in what appears to be a LeGaspi inspired design.  Goddess of the Galaxy™ Barbie® is clearly on her way to the next Sparkle Army party in this futuristic ensemble designed by Bill Greening.  Behold her fabulosity as she poses in her silver metallic and bedazzled corset, gobs of sparkling sequins and space cuffs on her arms and legs!  I am gagging over her for countless reasons (did I mention the thigh-high platform boots?), but mainly because I simply must have her and secondly- how am I going to top this outfit?

Gods From Outer Space

No, “Gods From Outer Space” is not another laser-laden porn movie, it’s the title of the long awaited full length album from Den Haan.  As many of you remember, they played the most dazzling live set at the last Sparkle Army party while wearing silver metallic space suits as well as brought along their massive sparkling party entourage from Glasgow. FABULOUS!  Well, they achieve top honors once again because this album speaks right to Da General’s heart as they don’t waste my time with the slow build. They go straight for the disco jugular and then rip it to shreds, just the way I like it.  It’s almost impossible to pick a favorite track, but I can tell you that spaced-out sparkle-sluts everywhere NEED this album so get it now… and that’s an order!


Today’s Sparkle Video is an extravaganza of everything important in the world: great music, sexy sparkle outfits and endless amounts of disco smoke.  This montage of dancer Gina Montes is from the Mexican television show “La Carabina de Ambrosio”, a variety show that ran from 1978-1987.  While we are used to seeing scantily clad women bumping and grinding for our pleasure in 2011, back then this was new and very risky for the largely conservative viewership. However, as always, once the people got a taste of Gina’s sequin and smoke onslaught they were hooked!  Bringing it to a whole ‘nother level is the “Tema de La Carabina Ambrosio” composed by space disco legend Quartz which truly makes Humberto Navarro, the creator and producer of the show, an all-out genius (and Sparkle Army Hero).  While this clip is a bit long, you’ll want to hang in there because you don’t want to miss Gina’s dazzlingly hot Wonder Woman moment!


Light Up Ceiling?

As you all know, I just can’t stop talking about Light Up Dance Floors, but something I never considered before has come to my attention: Light Up Ceilings! There are so many versions out there, but this one looks like some sort of tunnel that encapsulates you like a spaceship gone wrong-  I must have it.  I want to walk through it, dance through it.. possibly vogue through it!  In fact, I want both the Light Up Dance Floor and the Light Up Ceiling and I want anything else that lights up too because it’s now 2011 and Even More is More!

Sparkle Army & NASA Secretly Working Together

Is it just me or did anyone else’s jaw drop when they read this article in today’s Metro?  Apparently, along with all of the scientific experiments astronauts are paid to do they are also making sure that dancing, booze and sex will be readily available for Space Tourism which, according to this article, is only a mere 5 years away!  That means that soon, The Sparkle Army will actually be partying in ACTUAL OUTERSPACE! Drinking ACTUAL SPACE BEER! I can just see it now… glitter floating around forever and ever, in weightless space like an eternal sparkling snow globe…

…So hang in there Soldiers because one day soon,we will all get on a rocket ship with our sparkle outfits and leave the right wingers and hypocrite losers down here on earth to fester in their own boredom.



I arrived in Berlin yesterday morning and the excitement is overwhelming- everyone here is ready to SPARKLE UP and PARTY DOWN!  Glitter is SOLD OUT everywhere you go and talks of outfits are jamming the cell towers! This Saturday night promises to be LEGENDARY and with so many Sparkle Surprises and fabulous things to get ready, I’m unable to post as much as usual.  To make it up to you… here’s one of my favorites to get you in the mood.

Join the Sparkle Army this Saturday, September 11th at Monster Ronson’s and dance all night with me and DJ’s Emil Doesn’t Drive and SpaceLex!  Lendless and very special guests DEN HAAN are performing LIVE and don’t forget… a 50 Euro Bar Tab prize for Spaciest Sparkle Outfit!
