Gilded Lily Burlesque, was absolutely gorgeous---if she had been a snake, not only would you have NOT missed her in the grass, she would have had her own late-night SciFi Channel movie where she gobbled up an entire village in the Congo or something. And there were cupcakes from Sweet Sin Bakery!

The second ten-minute pose was the one we dragged Russell's moped up onto the stage for. You'd think that wouldn't be too difficult, but that stupid thing must weigh a ton. It got up there after a fair amount of cussing though.Visions From Within the Mechanism: The Industrial Surrealism of Jeffery Scott from Baby Tattoo Books. The weekend before Dr. Sketchy's, Alexis, Maria, and I took a trip to Asheville, NC for the Asheville Burlesque and Sideshow Festival. Maria was performing and since my folks live in Asheville, carpooling seemed the cheapest and funnest way to mosey down there. Not only that, but the ten-hour car ride gave me plenty of time to run on at the mouth at excruciating length about the local fauna, so Maria would be prepared if a wild boar tried to chew off her leg or a snake popped out of her salad. (She actually saw 4 snakes over two days, though it was probably 2 snakes seen twice---wait, one of the performers was carrying around a snake, so does that make 5? I suppose it's not important.) Anyways, this may sound like Jager-induced paranoia, but forewarning tourists is what stops people's babies from being carried off by bald eagles and shit. What we were talking about? Oh, drop bears. One of the many carnivorous hazards of my fair home state is the wily Drop Bearfirocicus. A sub-species of the normal mountain black bear, drop bears are basically black bears that are soooo fat and lazy they eventually get tired of killing mooses (meeses?), elk, and raiding old ladys' trash cans. Instead, the climb up in a tree and wait, sometimes for days at a time, until some tourist, park ranger, or teenagers looking to have sex in the woods walk by and then BLAM, they fall right out of the tree and squish them flat with their big ol' butt. I'm telling you, it's a god-damn zoo down there. Knowledge is half the battle, folks. So, best incorporation of drop bears . . .
