Friends of Dorothy. On Ice.

This post is dedicated to Joe Reid

The Olympics begin tonight. What better way to celebrate than by enjoying A Star is Born levels of showmanship and theatricality from one of the dominant figure skaters on the planet?! Your photo subject today is Olympic skater and gold medal hopeful Johnny Weir who, as Joe points out on his own blog, is a young RufusWainwright-like hoot. Oh sure you can drool over Jeremy Bloom with 90% of the population but you can bet his Abercrombie & Fitch ass he's never said anything as hilariously quippy as the bombs that Weir is willing to drop publicly. Skates are sharper than skis.

ModFab is also celebrating the Olympic inferno today. The actual festivities begin tonight with the Opening Ceremony.

Come taste the wine. Come hear the band.
Come blow a horn, start celebrating:
Right this way, your table's waiting...

Bring back the gold, Johnny. Bring it home!

Ok so I just barely found out who Johnny Weir is lol i'm not even kidding! for the past three hours i've been watching his show on IFC back to back. it's really good! and a great depiction of him as an artist an athlete and a person. and I absolutely love him! he's inspiring. I dont watch the olympics but i'll be sure to watch the figure skating portion just for him...Go kick some ass!!
