I now have the capability to blog on the go. Yay! This will make updates easier when I go to festivals and on tour. Please enjoy this photo of my Doodlebug waking up as my first mobile post.

In "I Was a Teenage Hitler" in The WRONG Show, I had to sing a 1980's rock song about Hitler. To be heard over the three-piece band, I had to use a microphone (because parts of the song are outside of my current belting range). I grabbed the mic last night when it was time for the song and knocked the cable out of the bottom. I picked up the cable and tried to put it back together but gave up after two quick attempts, sucked it up, and belted out the entire song. Boo-yah. Of course, the band dropped their volume a bit to accomodate me (and bully on them for doing so). But I made that song my bitch. I was a rock star.
We all have rock star moments, like when Billy Bob finally goes for the oop-de-oop play in Varsity Blues, or when Ralph Fiennes goes back to the car to Angela Bassett at the end of Strange Days. Moments where we can lay it all on the line and hope to hell it turns out okay. The payoff can be huge. It's important to be a rock star when those opportunities present themselves.

Well, this whole Tiki Oasis thing gets better and better. I asked ol' friend Sandy Meeks to create a necklace based on the breast cast so I can wear the necklace to the art showing at Tiki Oasis in August. Sandy crochets amazing art sculpture necklaces from the cashmere yarn that spent a past life as a sweater. Totally green upcycling stuff. The vampire bite necklace that was all the rage last summer was her brainchild.
Incredible work. I encourage you to check out Sandy's Etsy store. Her stuff is very affordable and clever.

I also got a mention on L.A. Theatre Review for my performance at the fundraiser. I'm very fortunate to be able to support things dear to my heart, and theatre is one of those things. I encourage you to visit the website for Hollywood Fringe Fest and take in some shows this summer. You can catch me in The WRONG Show as Eva Braun in "I Was a Teenage Hitler" (and they guy who plays Hitler is so HOT!).

Some girls wear pasties, some don’t.
Some performers demonstrate skills on the pole, some do not.
Some acts challenge, some acts tease, some acts delight.
All acts are enjoyable, entertaining and demonstrate a mastery of the art of burlesque.
Two shows are presented, one at 10 and one at 11:30 – in between, we encourage you to enjoy the lovely and entertaining ladies of Star Garden. (Bring folding money.)
The cover is $10.
