Gilbert & George socials.

We came across this set of snaps from the Billy Farrel Agency, at the Gilbert & George exhibition opening that we attended in New York City last April.

It reminded us of the great night that we had and we even managed to sneak in front of the lens a few times.

R.I.P. Pussy.

My Pussy, my Pussy, my beautiful Pussy has gone to sea in a wonderful pea green boat.
Oh how we will all miss him.

This week a wonderful friend of the Castle passed away.  David "Pussy" Aboud, was the original Nic-Naker, oracle, sage and mentor for Mr Brown.  A dealer with that incredible eye that could pick out the gem in an Op Shop full of tat at twenty paces.  His critical eye surveyed St. Kilda and Melbourne and he would quip and commentate on all that he found worthy.  A stalwart of the fashion and club scene of Melbourne during the 1980's & 90's, his sense of style was legendary.
Another one gone too soon.

Pussy, Alanna and Robert.
