Or could it be … when you can name your new performance group something ridiculous, offer the bare minimum of explanation as to why and what the fuck … and still get profiled pre-ever-performing in every newspaper in town that matters?

POUND PUPPY A moment to reflect on how glorious it is that AHDM4U announced this week that Jorge Portillo and Devon Devine are our new marketing director boos. SWOON. For proof that these angels know what it takes to get a ridiculous idea off the ground, one need look no further than Jorge and his crew’s new dog fetish party. Dog. Fetish. Party. On only its third bone, this sweet lil mutt of a party already has pervs and fans of a sharp haircut wagging their tails. Dog pun dog pun dog pun see u there
