Burlesque-ing about town

I've got a couple of performances coming up next weekend. See the fabulous pics in the posting below?

On Friday, the 30th, Feminine Oddities is heading over to Infusion Gallery in downtown LA to shake our booties dressed as pirates. Yay! I get to play with a sword!

Saturday, the 31st, we get our own night at the Hive! Please see the press release below...

But before you do, let me say a couple (or 8) things about the fresh Oscar nominations.

1) Slumdog Millionaire was not that great
2) Kristin Scott Thomas was robbed. Not only was I've Loved You So Long an amazing movie, I've never seen acting that brilliant and natural. 
3) Mickey Rourke fucking kicks ass. The Wrestler was an emotional experience for me.
4) Marisa Tomei still has a nice rack but was nothing special acting-wise.
5) I'm sick of reading about how the Dark Knight was robbed or some other lame shit like that. I was nearly asleep during the second half of that snoozefest. 
6) However, Heath Ledger DID give a stellar performance.
8) I loved Milk.

That's it. Onto the release....and hope to see you next weekend! ;-)
