Going to be a great theme for 2011! I think Jon Stiers sent you a line about possibly performing - he rocks. Looking forward to see him entrancing the crowd with his voice and piano skills. Can we get Brook Alyson's butt here this year?

Wow. I went to Pattaya to see the drag shows. We went to two, "Alcazar" and "Tiffany". While they were both dazzling, Tiffany, which started in the 70's, blew Alcazar out of the water! While the photos on their website look great, they don't begin to translate all the glitter and texture of the costumes, nor the kinetic grandeur of the sets... but go take a look around anyway: Tiffany Website On the "show preview" page, give it time to load and it becomes a little roll-over-the-photo...

" I guess for me, my freedom to live as I please was a higher priority than it is for some. " That may be it in a nutshell, Miss Understood. Sometimes the desire may be growing and latent and its a matter of timing. I remember what a quiet, shy kid I was until in 8th grade, the boy behind me in class would not leave me alone. He was always whispering funny things to me and singing songs to me really low until he finally won me over and in a big way. Suddenly I was transformed, which really...

I don't know why I never bothered to before, but I finally bought a small knife so that I can buy fruit. If you only eat what is served ready-to-eat there are a whole range of interesting fruits you'd never eat. I had to go on the web to find out what some of them were. Like the Sapodilla . It tasted very sweet, as if it had been steeped in honey. I don't think I ever tased anything like it. Rambutans are similar to lychees. Pomelos are like mutant grapefruits (it's probably the other way,...

It's funny, when I started this topic almost a year ago, I didn't even know that there was already a marketing term for these up-and-coming electronic based groups...(Electroclash) Now a lot of magazines are already calling it "Dead." Well it may be old news in NYC, but it's catching on BIG in LA and London, and Chicago is starting to have bi-monthlies... And no one is doing nights at all in the smaller towns in the Midwest...So I'd guess it will hit before the end of the year here. (We're...

Daddy, I ran Baba's business with him for about nine years in the 90's. It really transformed my life in many many ways. I have endless stories about that adventure. He 'went over to the great majority' -as they say- April 6. The cause was terminal stages of diabetes. Drums of Passion was recorded in 1958/9. Everyone from Dylan to Santanna had their musical heads whacked by it. Closer to home, Nina, Coltrane, Abbey Lincoln, Max Roach, Joan Baez, Mickey Hart, Jerry Garcia, -all fell under the...

My friend, a very liberal democrat who is forced to go to the Republican Convention since she is a journalist and a stringer for AP, gave me a brilliant idea. For those of us who want to escape town during this horrible invasion, worse than the 17 year cecadas, rent out your apartment for the week to some Republican, and suck them for cash. Make them pay to stay in our city. She said $1000 for the week, depends on the apartment, and proximity to the horrid Javits Center where this all will...

Oh Jenny... Sorry you and your Mom had such a bad time. Obviously this night is not for you. In "The Big City" Jenny, people go out a little bit later. Actually, a show that starts at 10:15 in a nightclub is pretty early. Also, in New York we don't take things as literally as you do in Danbury. We can watch a video without the sound for instance. The video is atmospheric, you're not supposed to stand in front of the screen and watch it all night like "Friends". It's decor. And we didn't put...

There are eight thousand stories to each 1000 Stevies - these are but two: The Crow Stays In The Picture My performance partner at this year's NOTS, Russell Crow, almost stole the show this year. Congrats, Russ! Our number was inspired by the Belladonna cover art (see below) and was originally going to be done to Nightbird, but the song is too slow to trundle and "kick out" - two of my favorite Stevie steps. A few days before the show I found out that due to the major soundproofing on the...

BRILLIANT! Thanks so much for that Dean..it brought a much-needed laugh. I have just finished editing the tribute video for NOTS of the legends past..That reminded me to mention that the original concept for NOTS actually was presaged in 1981 when Gennaro Palermo staged a Stevie lip-synch performance of mine for Haoui Montaug's cabaret.

I "did" Stevie a few times at R&R Fag Bar at The World in the Eighties. Once I did Fleetwood Mac's extended version of "Rhiannon" complete with Stevie's eight-minute interpretive dance solo while Christine McVie (Tabboo!) sat on the side of the stage applying make-up, eating potato chips and reading the National Enquirer. Then when I reached the big finale, Christine stood up behind me, held up a huge sign that said 'MUFF DIVA' and walked off the stage.

"I remember sitting in the dressing room with Chi Chi and Joey Arias (we were the only three Stevies that night) and thinking, 'Well, this is avant-garde!'"

Can I also just point out that we save "Stand Back" for Joey every year? It's a Stevie tradition. It's also a tradition that he never learn the words. EVERY year he says, "I'm going to really learn the words this time" but he never does. The funniest moment was a few years ago (after he swore he knew he words) Joey was in the middle of a verse, just sort of mumbling and I turned the music off letting him mumble acapella. I did it about three times exposing him. He was mortified. Even though...
