Member-Dismembered opens tonight for its for its 4 night run at Gay City on Pike Street near Belmont in Capitol Hill.

If you’ve ever wished you could have somebody else’s body, now you can! When Ken’s penis disappears into the Internet, his partner and friends embark on a surreal and often naked odyssey into interchangeable torsos, anonymous genitalia, and a gigantic, atomic-penis straight out of the 1950s. The play takes a humorous look at the question: who are we, when we can be anything?

I'm so excited! I get to sing! I get to dance with a six foot penis! I also bring these boys back to reality.

The show is at 7:30 pm tonight through Saturday and a matinee showing on Sunday at 2:00 pm. Tickets are available online through Stranger Tickets.

Have an interest in dipping your toes into some burlesque and live in the northen Puget Sound? I am coming to the Bellingham Sex Positive Center to teach an intro to burlesque workshop for all genders, Burlesque with Miss Violet DeVille at the BSPC on September 21st. This 3 hour workshop begins at 1pm. There are 20 tickets available at $20 from Brown Paper Tickets.


With a rich history dating back to the 1800s, burlesque performers having been entertaining and enticing crowds with bawdy, alluring, and even comedic all while exciting and arousing them through the art of the tease. In this workshop for all bodies and genders we’ll explore some of the history of the risque art and some of the forms it’s taken over the years and why some reasons people do burlesque. We’ll do some tease and movement, we’ll examine costuming for deconstruction, using props for reveals, and more. By the end of the 3 hours you will have a basic introduction to burlesque and you’ll go home with resources to go further.

Revisiting Sparrow Hill Road

I'm reading Sparrow Hill Road by seanan_mcguire. I found I was really reluctant to read the book initially. It sat in my Kindle library for almost two weeks before I started reading it in earnest. Usually when Seanan comes out with a new book and I'm reading it the moment I realize it's in my e-book library. I suppose my reluctance came from loving the story in its original form on the Edge of Propinquity. While I know that Seanan tightened it up, it went through a more rigorous editorial process, and she filled out the world quite a bit, I was afraid it wouldn't be what I remembered.

Coffee Service for the Dead by Amber Clark. Copyright 2010, Stopped Motion Photography. Originally published on February 14th, 2010, in the Edge of Propinquity for Sparrow Hill Road by Seanan McGuire.
Let me just say that I was wrong. I should not have put any credence in that little voice that told me to be afraid of the changes. So far, I am delighted. I am half-way through the fifth chapter, Bullets and Bad Coffee, which maps to the second episode in its 12 story run on TEOP, Deadman's Party. I wanted a bigger world during the TEOP run and now I have it. This is more than what it was before and I'm okay with that.

So many visuals came to mind reading this chapter as they did back then and that's wonderful. Now if you don't mind, there's a girl in a diner I want to get back to.

The Internet is for Burlesque!

Like physics, the internet has its own set of “natural” laws. The most exciting: Rule 34, which states that if you can think of it, there is sexually explicit material of it. Therein lies our inspiration. With a steaming hot cast of burlesque’s finest, Rule 34 explores the deepest depths of our imaginations and the interwebs that bring them to light. 

If You Can Think of It, There’s Porn, er, Burlesque of It!

“Why you think the net was born? Porn! Porn! Porn!” – Trekkie Monster, from the hit Broadway musical Avenue Q. 

Did you know that over 30% of all Internet traffic contains porn and video site YouPorn uses 6 times the bandwidth of the streaming media site Hulu. We think Trekkie Monster might be onto something.

Rule 34 is May 10th at the Re-Bar in Seattle. 

Our Master of Ceremonies, our Potentate of Porn, our Sultan of Smut, our Dictator of Dirt is Mister Bawdy. 

Following his lead is Tamara the Trapeze Lady, Boom Boom L’Roux, Whisper De Corvo, Miss Violet DeVille, Maggie McMuffin, Cinnamon Maxxine, Magnolia Monroe, Morgue Anne, Dee Lushious, and Ms. Audrey Rugburn! 

The doors open at 6:30 pm, seating begins at 7:00 pm, show starts at 7:30 pm.

What porn is she looking for? If I could just zoom in on the screen...

Tickets start at $13 and are available through www.BrownPaperTickets.com and for $15 at the box office day of show.

What porn is she searching for?

Belltown Burlesque Revue on April 3rd!

(Crossposted from Violet DeVille)

CopyrightI cannot wait for next Thursday. On April 3rd, the Belltown Burlesque Revue is back in town at the Re-Bar with a stellar lineup!

Tax season is once again upon us with its money hungry filing deadline looming on the horizon. With that dead line, we suggest taking a break from Table A on document 1086. Instead we think you should apply a shimmy credit for the bumps you’ll be enjoying and come down to the Re-Bar on Thursday, April 3rd. The music will hopping, the women will be bringing their all, and the drinks will be flowing from the Re-Bar’s talented bartenders. 

I'm bringing two very fun acts and I'll be sharing the stage with Whisper De Corvo, Ms. Candy Apples, Crystal Tassels, and Katie Kat. 

Tickets for the Belltown Burlesque Revue are on sale now at belltownburlesque.brownpapertickets.com

I have an engineering problem that I need some help with.

I am building a large "spin and win" like device consisting of a frame and two spinning wheels, with the smaller wheel in front of the larger one. The axel for these wheels is a 3/8" carriage bolt that is 6" in length. The frame and each wheel has a 1/2" hole to accommodate the axel and a steel sleeve. The sleeves serve two purposes: reducing friction when spun and protecting the plywood from being damaged by the threads on the bolt that serves as the axel. Nuts behind the frame and in front of the frame allow for adjusting the forward position of the axel on the frame.

The wheels spin smoothly and easily. The problem is that spinning the wheel causes the wheel to rub against the washers and nuts that hold everything in place on the axel and, depending on which way the wheel is spun, will either tighten the nut to the point where the wheel cannot spin or loosen it to the point of wobbling.

I don't know how to solve this. I've tried using two nuts tightened against each other and that didn't work.

I'm open to suggestions.

Edit: It is a set piece for a show so it needs to be able to easily disassemble and reassembled.

Come for the cake, stay for the show!
