Ulysses darling, you do amaze me. You are so quiet but the minute someone actually needs you, you appear. I wish I could teach a few others that trick, LOL. And yes, you would totally get and love the RFs, specially the techno-pagans in their midst. And glammie, I finally got to catch up in this topic today and was howling over the story of Pinky and Belzie. Are you absolutely sure we're not the same person?

So how about this. I see these two girls almost everyday on my St. we live on the same St. I know that they are 24/7 trannies and they know that I am a crossdresser, but we never speak.

A message to all the New Yorkers working hard to resurrect live perfromance, Vaudeville, and Burlesque: it is alive and thriving here in the Viet Nam! I went to a club the other night. It was like some of the ones in Bangkok, it looks like a disco but people sit at cocktail tables and watch a show. We entered as a sexy girl pop singer was finishing her set.

Saw it. Everyone needs to. Really. Anyone reading this, if you haven't seen it, please go soon. People seem to think international travel is expensive. It's only expensive if you follow packages and agents. Get a Rough Guide or a Lonely Planet and you'll see how cheap it can be. I gag when I see the prices people pay for resorts like club Med. You can come here for a month with what they charge for a few days. Here's a trick for you: I met a woman on Koh Samui who had been living in a beach...

Congratulations to everyone who sent up Arcadia. The living imagery was very steep and celebratory. My only suggestions, (and suggestions for the sake of nudging the production in to even better form than it was, not for the sake of criticism) would be to get the sound for live vocals a bit better on the board. I'm not sure if the problem is with the configuration of the gallery space or the actual board mix, Jade's MC'ing was particularly clear but the stage mics weren't delivering as well...

Well, at first I thought it lacked a lot, felt like a return to his late 80's pop sensibilities, which after the genius of his 90's work, like Outside, seemed like a sucker punch. Still, I'm nothing if not an ardent Bowie fan, and repeated listneing does deliver an appreciation for the musicianship rampant throughout the work. Lovely sounds, if not songs. His own vocal performance is strong, the timbre of his voice takes on delicate nuances as he's aging. He can tremble and flutter in a...

A despicable election year trick, intended to drive a wedge between the queer community and our hetero neighbors. While depressing, this article is highly informative and I love the quoted reactions from DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe, the ACLU and others. And though the Democratic presidential candidates are not THAT much better, at least they are against a constitutional amendment and Kerry can boast that he voted against the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996.
