Much thanks for everyone’s patience with me posting this year’s video. It took us a couple days to decompress after so much fun in Provincetown.
I’d also like to thank Sergio for all his help before, during and after Carnival as well as my friend Kyle Szary who shared many of his excellent photos for this video. Lastly, thank you to everyone who was nice enough to pose and emailed me their group photographs.
We look forward to seeing everyone next year when Provincetown Carnival’s theme will be Gods & Goddesses.
This weekend Red Bull hosted their Flugtag competition in Boston. Earlier this spring a call went out encouraging people to create homemade flying machines. Red Bull Flugtag has been around for 25 years, but this was the first time it has been hosted in Boston.
Thirty teams participated, jumping from a 22-foot platform into the Charles River. Did you miss the fun or just want to relive it? Check out this two minute highlight clip courtesy of NESN.
For those of you who are not familiar with Provincetown’s annual Carnival Week, I’ve reposted a video of images from last year’s celebration. The 2015 theme was Candy Land. This year’s theme of Back to the 80s will hopefully live up to all the crazy and creative outfits from last year. Either way Sergio and I will be there snapping photos. Thank you in advance for posing for us.
Do you plan on taking pictures? I would potentially like to include some of your favorite photos and will credit you on my blog. Let me know if you are interested by emailing me at email@example.com.
Note that if you are in an office or around children there is a fair amount of swearing, but this is absolutely hilarious and I thought worth sharing.
FREDDIE FOR A DAY

Tickets to Freddie Mercury Tribute
Bruce Weber has created a sexually charged video for Versace’s Dylan Blue Pour Homme like only he can. The campaign, stars Gigi Hadid and Trevor Signorino. Gigi is joined by six male models wrestling, fight club style, as well as a same sex kiss or two, using the ‘mean streets’ of NYC as a backdrop.
Weber also shows off Trevor (shown above) selling ice cream on the beach of the Jersey Shore. Watching the film I could hear Cazwell’s club hit Meet Me At The Ice Cream Truck. Like what you see? Look for more to come because word is that Bruce Weber has also shot the Autumn Winter campaign for Dylan Blue.
