Oh yes, but this one's different. Different how, you might ask? ( You might, if we gave you the opportunity. This way to Alphabet CityCollapse )
Woot! I so love the drag shows. I took a million pictures (ok 35 this time, but most of them turned out ok). I'll expound more later, I just wanted to get the URL out there 'cause some of them should not be missed. They can be found here: http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/electrakittydesigns/album?.dir=/5c52&urlhint=actn,ren%3as,3%3af,31 There are a few teaser pictures under the cut.

Just saw two coolcool movies that I wanted to throw out there. 1. Paris is Burning. . .a kinda wonderful documentary which follows the "Ball Circuit" in New York City in the mid-80s. "Balls" started out as underground drag shows, but turned into sort of a "Fantasy show," where mostly gay black or Latino men lived out whatever they wished were true. It's very sweet, and kinda sad how simple their dreams are.2. Connie and Carla Nia Vardalos and Toni Collette playing women playing drag queens to run from drug kingpins. I had no idea there was any drag involved at all when I rented it. No really, I didn't. But it's delightful and funny and involves Debbie Reynolds. It also involves Alec Mapa, whom I loved in Playing By Heart as well. Check 'em out :)
What the HELL is going on in rent right now?I told you guys I smelled troll.
Has anyone noticed...there seems to be a ton of intro posts in rent today? And "stupid" questions...do you think someone's trolling?
I did promise pictures the next time I went to the drag club. Here they are, my dears. Sadly, my battery ran out about halfway through the third set, and I missed Vicki in her g-string and pasties again (sadness), but there are some good (and not so good) pictures of all four girls who performed last night. Three are regulars (Asia, Vicki, and Alana) and the fourth (Chelsea) was just in for the night. She actually left before the final curtain call to head down to Atlanta for another show. Coolness. I'm working on labelling the pictures, but for now you can at least look at 'em. http://pg.photos.yahoo.com/ph/electrakittydesigns/album?.dir=/5c52&.src=ph
Might as well be my own lj, but that's ok. Anyway, just wanted to pimp out Margaret Cho's marriage equality site loveisloveislove.com She's got some cute t-shirts which I needed to buy as soon as I saw them. But I can't figure out how to get an image in here. Anyway, here's a link to the picture http://electrakittydesigns.com/lilil3_s.jpg
So I decided, yet again, to go out to the drag shows last weekend. I was all excited, 'cause there was a "Charity Event," which started at 8:30 and went to 10:30, then there was supposed to be regular shows at 10:30, midnight, and 1. So, woohoo! Shows all freakin' night.
( Follow the cut to more rantings, and a link to picturesCollapse )
So I'm brand new at this and I could use some help making this place look good. . .Anyway, I was thinking we could use someplace to post things which aren't appropriate for the other communities, someplace totally off-topic. So chat away and enjoy :)
