Finally, I have a job. After receiving unemployment for nearly two years I am working a full-time job. Thanks everyone for all of the love and assistance I received during these long, lean times.
In other amazing miracles, my Aunt Becky is in the process of a full recovery. Less than a month ago she was struck by a car in her driveway. Her teenage son witnessed it. After multiple broken bones, including skull, vertebra fractures and brain bleeds, this week she came out of her coma speaking full sentences with no apparent memory loss and moving all of her limbs, fingers and toes. Thank you all for your prayers and well wishes.
So much NEW NEWS for April!
Naked Girls Reading CONTINUES! We have moved the location - we are back at the Center for Sex and Culture. BUT they are in a NEW space. Just down the road from the old location, across the street from St. James Infirmary at 1349 Mission Street.
Naked Girls Reading is once again having their Literary Honors Contest.
The Naked Girls want you to SUBMIT!
THIS year we’re inviting “gut level” writers all over the globe to submit original writing for a chance to win our fan/reader-funded literary prize of at LEAST $2000. Not only that, but at our Naked Girls Reading HONORS event in November, an international array of Naked Girls will read selections from our finalists at the celebration in Chicago. Deadline is September 1, 2011.
Also, I am collaborating on a project with Sadie Lune as a Handmade-In for her performance next month. STAY TUNED!
I am proud to say the film, THE CRAVING will premier on March 31st in San Francisco. I play the part of FIREBALL and was the Production Manager for the film. Please come for the screening, the Q/A with some of the cast and crew and performances that relate to our favorite horror films. I will be debuting a new number that you don't want to miss.

Hello Poetry Lovers,
April is National Poetry Month AND National Jazz Month
What goes better with jazz and poetry than baring it all, fancy-free and letting it be with beautiful, intelligent women?
Joining the regular cast for Naked Girls Reading will be the vivacious, stunning Cherry Galette.
Each reader will choose their favorite poetry to read. Poets to be included: Shel Silverstein, Rainer Maria Rilke, Paul Eluard, etc.
Regular Cast: Carol Queen, PhD, Lady Monster, and Ophelia Coeur de Noir.
HOT SAX! Ralph Carney, master Jazz musician. This will be a very special engagement. Ralph will perform a solo free-form jazz explosion after the reading.
If you know me, you know how I love poetry and jazz together, but this event features each art form separately. And who knows, some special guests may just jump on the stage and join in the jam.
I wish you Jazz.
