Volume 15/Issue 25

Dear Rip and Ambush Staff,
Last week I sent you only later to find out that I had misaddressed the letter, but it was in regard to your volume 15 (issue 15) Ambush Mag. I will try again and hopefully this will get to you... What I was writing about was the article regarding the GAA Lifetime Achievement Award to Miss Dixie. I can remember going there when I was 16 years old and had realized I was not the only man who desired other men. When I found Dixie's Bar of Music I truly thought I had found heaven! And I did. I can remember quickly joining in on all the fun of circle-jerks that went on there at that time. Things were wild as ever. I even remember a song on the juke box called Paper Tiger sang by Sue Lyons. Ahh the memories. And I also remember marching to Dixie's from Lafitte's to reclaim the bar for the gay men. I've often wondered whatever became of Miss Dixie, and appreciate George for his write-up on the article. Even though it has been several years since I had to move back home (due to a spinal injury); I still consider New Orleans as my true home. I owe much thanks to you guys at Ambush for keeping me informed on all the gay news and events going on in the Big Easy. I also find out and respond to many of your advertisers in each issue of Ambush. Thanks ever so much for everything. Hope your Holidays are filled with Joy. Warmly,
--Robert King (King0road@aol.com)

Subject: Halloween Weekend
Hola to all you delicious Munchkins from Oz!!!!
My friend called me up a week before Halloween, asking if I wanted to join him on a trip to the Crescent City. Me? Go to New Orleans? Over Halloween weekend?
YOU BUTT!!!! I mean, you bet ...
Unfortunately, we missed out on the Main Event, that is, the Saturday Night Costume Ball (which was a DRAG ... tee hee!), but we heard all sorts of hellacious commentary on it from more than one tired but very satisfied party-goer!
On the other hand, we did NOT miss the Friday Night Riverwalk Event which for me, was the highlight of the trip (thanks to two fantABulous dancers named Robert and David - whom my friends and I affectionately refer to as "Homiell and "Bandana", respectively.)
The fact is, we had so much fun at Oz later that same evening, that we went back for more on Sunday!!! My friend and I barely made our flight back to Florida, as I was having a kind of surreal experience with the pay phone out on the second floor balcony. I was trying to get in touch with my husband to advise him NOT to pick us up at the airport - we were going to stay another night (and party at OZ!!!!!)
Unfortunately, the payphone was PMS'ing and I couldn't seem to get a call through. We left, albeit reluctantly...
I am attaching a jpg scanned from a photo taken while chilling on the balcony at Oz (I'm the one in the blue shirt and shades!)which I entitled "Reality". I have it juxtapositioned next to the one you have at your website, which I've downloaded and entitled "Fantasy".
Oh - one last thing: Everyone at Oz was super, I'm referring specifically to the staff. I am not gay, but I was never made to feel out of element or unwelcome; on the contrary, everyone was friendly, courteous, and VERY SEXY! Thanks for the men-mories!!!

Hello Pam, As the newly assigned Webmaster for Mercantile Stores Company, Inc., I enjoyed your Mr. Bingle experience very much - Being from Ohio, I had never heard of Mr. Bingle until I arrived at my present employer and even still, didn't realize how popular he really is. No other reason for writing other than to grin a little.... and invite you to see a new section of our web site: http://www.mercstores.com/bingle/bingle.htm. Have a great day

I just got the internet and this is one of the first things I looked up. I think it's great. I will be in New Orleans on the 29th of this month. Yes, I have learned more about New Orleans. So, thank you. I go to a Ball during Mardi Gras every year. That is fun! It's called Lords of Leather. My best friend was King about 3 years ago so we still go. I'll sign off now. Again, thank you

Could you please tell me if anyone will be stripping at MRB's this weekend? The last two times I've visited the Big Easy, I had promised friends a great show and nothing was going on there. MRB used to be the highlight of my trip with Tyler and Rayne. Thanks

Subject: Obsessions
I would like to read stories from people who have experienced an interest in someone that they cannot forget, but also, have not romantically connected with, yet. Has this or is this happening to you? Do you try to forget this person? How? Why? My friend (we are not lovers) of 22 years has asked me for thirteen years, "Why can't I just forget her?" For the first five years I said, 'Forget it, it's not worth it.' Then, after ten years I said, 'I'll never happen!' I have observed how creative my friend is under the influence of this obsession, now I am listening ... Is this an abnormal psychosis or something else? I am especially interested in long term situations that encompass more than two years. If anyone can offer writing that is longer than an email would allow, I am happy to send a self-addressed stamped envelope to your mailing address. Thank you sincerely,
--LC Splanen

Subject: Princess Diana's Trashed Photos by Cristie's Auction House
I represent Mr. German Matos Morales. This is the HIV+ individual who found the original and Royal photos of Princess Diana which were trashed by Christie's International Auction House. These were the photos that were used during the auction of Princess Diana's 79 dresses for AIDS Benefits. The trashed photos are by photographer Tim Graham. The photos were restored to health by Morales. Mr. Morales would like to auction these 10 Royal photos of Princess Diana, with the proceeds going to AIDS Research and to continue his personal medical treatment. Please contact me and see if anyone is interested in these photos. Sincerely,
--Alberto 0. Cappas, - 85 4th Avenue, Suite 3H, NYC, NY 10003, Tel. (212) 353-9114
