blue mime

Life imitates art, and art returns the favor.

Lots of good burlesque this weekend. Friday's Oktoberfest show was lots of fun, of course, and the next night a bunch of us go-go'd at Spookshow A Go Go. (Calamity Lulu as Sigmund Freud? So disturbing. Alotta Boutte as a music box ballerina dancing to "Coin Operated Boy" with a vibrator? Hilarious. And I loved the Diamond Daggers, the praying mantis act, Sparkly's undead fan dance, and of course, Lady Satan's Sarah Palin number set to "Bikini Girls with Machine Guns." Brilliant.)

However, Saturday night, a young man learned the hard way that it isn't a good idea to treat women in nightclubs like human petting zoos.

It's really too bad that the lesson we taught him wasn't caught on video, "evidence" be damned, because the theme for next month's Hubba Hubba Revue?
