Re: Miss Understood's Hi from Thailand

Miss Understood ·
your travelogues are incredible, missy. they remind me of my trip to thailand and point out to me all the great things i missed. keep on rockin' in the "kinda" free world. when you head up into chang mai, you'll be wooed into hill treks to see these tribal people in their native environs. they're really just human zoos. i was grossly (and i do mean GROSS) disappointed... the akha women were hostile to us when we didn't wanna spend money on their crappy trinkets. they would yank their kids...

Yeah, I've heard mixed reviews of those Hill trecks. Supposedly the system has been reformed to space those groups from eachother, but there are so many of them I don't know if that's possible. I've been to Chiang Mai twice but I've never done the treck. I did, by car, visit 2 of those human zoo/villages. One was that pushy trinket situation. Then, at the longneck lady place, they just ask a fee before you go in. I think it's a bit more honest and less stressful. Look, they know you want to...

Hattie, in April 2002 there was a film festival on DW in the UK, http://www.outuk.com/cgi-bin/llgff/filmdetail.pl?link_ref=81 it seems to me that an exhaustive amount of research was put into getting all these works together for this show, which would entail contacting anyone who might know something about your missing film.

Aww, Daddy, the Gilded Grape! You just slammed me with a bunch of memories of a gay New York that no longer exists... bars and floors and stages that harkened back to a mysterious verboten subculture that truly was the twilight world of the homosexual (always one of my fave phrases, of course.)

We were not prepared for how much we'd miss our baby. This morning in Patmos while climbing the hill to the monastary we came upon the very first small dog we have seen in all of Greece. The little thing was exactly Napoleon's size and was eager for us to pet him, which we did. (he was not a stray, he lived in the little souvenir shop where we found him). I almost started balling right then and there. Luckily I had my sunglasses on. From now on I think small 4-day trips might be better for...

Re: But Darling I WAS a punk.

I just find everything so segregated nowerdays. I think it was that turning when black folk in the music industry decided to become gangsters and all about bitches and bling. Which was idolized by white folk in the sticks. I think that was the real downfall on the mix of music and people. Thank God I remember those dub days too. (I moved the Notting Hill at the tail end of that). I miss the lovers rock reggae and the ole school dub.

It was a very cute party! Pink Martini had a ball (and quite a few pink martinis). Julie Atlas Muz wow'd 'em with her talents as did Jessica Rabbit and Vangeline Domination. Hunter James and Pirate Steve gave gorgeous black tail & top hat go go. The Empress Chi Chi did a reading of her ode to New Orleans, "The Empress Of Royal Street" with Pink Martini trumpet player Gavin Bondy.

Last night during dinner at Bobby's we heard the sirens again and that expression fell upon our faces, like not AGAIN! Luckily, it was a false alarm, however this is really wearing on everyone here. I fear leaving the dog by himself to go to work and everyone has turned on every light possible at night. When I walk the dog late in the evening I feel suspicious of those distant figures in the night and their shadows. It's just weird. Usually when I see someone in the distance I just wonder if...
