Possibly The Greatest Semi Precious Weapons Tribute to Date!

Check out this AMAZING early birthday video for Justin Tranter made by some amazingly fierce weapons! This is the most well-shot fan video I've seen in some time.  It's full of glaMOUR, alcohol, fierce boots, semi-pornographic champagne scenes, and lots of cutouts of Mr. Tranter's face.  In other words it's perfect!

Precious Empire Update: Breedlove, Darian Darling, & Lady Starlight

The Precious Empire has been busy taking over NYC and the globe.  Lady Starlight was spotted in Glasgow selling some new un-mentionables.  Darian Darling modeled some new pop-art and worked those infamous crimsom lips, and Breedlove is busy working the NYC scene with his mega-popular Magic Monday!

Lady Starlight Takes Over the Cathouse Nightclub

Lady Starlight stormed the Cathouse Nightclub in Glasgow a few days ago, spinning records and selling her new Starlight panties!

Starry Nightlife's Victor Corona mentions Precious Empire members Breedlove, Darian Darling, and the Joce in his review of NYC's latest 'Starry' nightlife.

"At St. Jerome’s on the Lower East Side, for example, the work week is inaugurated with carousing instead of grumbling. Magic Mondays at the Rivington Street bar consist of a vigorous revelry generated by the songs of Breedlove, a friendly singer usually seen sporting garments typical of the ’80s and ’90s. At a recent Magic Monday, a fog machine started its work and the small bar quickly filled. The crowd of bar regulars enthusiastically sang along to cheery, rousing songs like “Oh, Pierre!” “OK By Me,” and “New York City Rooftop,” which Breedlove sang with a robust voice as he walked among partiers, beer in hand. Richie Rich, an original club kid compatriot of Alig and a founder of the Heatherette fashion label, arrived alongside Jocelyn Saldana, who daringly posed in a subway sans any garments for Zach Hyman’s Decent Exposures series. Remaining devoted to the creation of his magic musical moments, Breedlove has amassed a fan following that includes veteran practitioners of the art of New York nightlife and recent college grads eager to plunge into the various strains of local culture."

"Immersed in the uptown Columbus Circle chic of the Hudson Hotel’s Library, Thursday night’s Ladyland is described on the party’s Facebook page as “a motley cast of muppets, models, and musicians” by organizer Kelle Calco. In a setting that meshes bookish décor with a violet billiards table, Ladyland’s dazzling duo of hosts,Darian Darling and Tommy Hottpants, cultivate a rock and roll atmosphere that attracts fashion industry toilers, neon-haired club kids, and suit-and-tie types. Noting the inspiration for the party’s name in a Jimi Hendrix song, a recent write-up in On Makeup Magazine reported, “The feel is reminiscent of The Rolling Stones documentary Gimme Shelter or a sexy Warhol Factory party—complete with the characters and creativity that originally made New York City the creative capital of the world.” Recent visitors at Ladyland have included Brian Newman, the debonair trumpet player at the Plaza Hotel’s Oak Room and lower Manhattan’s Duane Park, and rock icon Debbie Harry, who has collaborated in the past with Ladyland’s DJ, Miss Guy."
