Otterblog Alert: Bring It Goth

What's black and pink and works a crowd? 3 Angry Goth Cheerleaders. Yes, I had opportunity to perform with the Evil Always Wins dancers (Disgrace Jones and Lola Montrose) at February's Goth-themed Bacon Strip (My Bloody Valentine). We rewrote the cheers, polished the poms, and jumped for sheer anti-enthusiasm... We would have spelled v-i-c-t-o-r-y, but we were too depressed and mournful to care. Check out the video on the Bacon Strip Video Channel.

Otterblog Alert: Male Maladies of the 19th Century

Remember that episode of "Little House" where Pa just kept screaming and going into shrill hysterics? Remember when they had to call the doc just to come out and "calm" him via certain questionable "medical science" practices? Remember how he was cured for a while and then went on a tear again? Poor Half-Pint, she remembers it well. But - I sure don't remember that episode. Do you? Well - because yours truly was given a 'Steampunk' assignment to do (*you know, that sci-fi genre where the industrial revolution was on steroids in the 19th century and they even had large scale computers), I went ahead and wrote my own episode, complete with a unsavory traveling snake-oil huckster-infomercial. Oh, yeah and I kinda switched the genders in this one too, cos in my alternative wild west universe - Willa Cather would be a bad-ass and Lewis and Clark would be demure prairie wives... Take that Manifest Destiny's Child!! Check out my wranglin' of history at Wild West Bacon Strip after the jump...

Otterblog Alert: The Cheese Stands Alone

Some acts stand alone in and of themselves, simply based on the merit of taste, flavor and smell.  That would also be the same criteria for Cheese Judging.  So, DisGrace had a certain hankerin for an ol' timey Saturday Morning Cartoon Character Timer (*or those under 35, a 5 minute ploy to get kids to eat more dairy in 70's by training them to make cheap ritz cracker canapes).
Judging by the act, our man delivered on flavor, smell and most of all... TASTE.   Only problem was that he came up a bit short in his hankerin, so he got very creative. 
Watch the nutrition lesson at "Wild West Bacon Strip" after the jump.   YEEHAW!!

Otterblog Alert: It's a very dark Christmas, Charlie Brown...

Don't you just love the holidays? The warmth, the cheer, the merriment? Of course, I'm talking about the various holiday TV specials where the holiday spirit trumps the crass materialism and everyone learns the true meaning of Christmas. Well, in theory, that's how it should work, however, we did a little re-boot of the Charlie Brown franchise and it took some very dark turns. See, Linus kinda got a little older and lost his way.  Complete with a great cameo from Bacon Strip cohost Maxine Delacunt, watch the gruesome number at the very special Holiday Christacular Bacon Strip, video shot by the awesome Perry after the jump...

Otterblog Alert: Holiday Sugar from Disgrace!

Who does not like a fresh, piping hot ginger?  Oh, I'm sorry - I don't mean Joel McHale, Conan Obrien or Prince Harry (*he is after all engaged) and I should clarify and say "Gingerbread Man", or wait -- that's sexist!  Women can be Gingerbread men... Er, I mean, Gingerbread Women... Or wait, I meant to say Wymn?  Wait - What about transexuals?   Ugh!! OK - I know we're excluding alot of people...  So, I've asked DisGrace Jones to see if he can show us what he means... He does and will take us down his sugarwalls for the annual Christacular installment of BaconStrip... Awesome vid and amazing costuming (*courtesy of Fleur du Mal) after the jump.

Otterblog Alert: Return of the (HOT) Dork Night

With all the "Reload" franchises and epic fail comic-book adaptations on Broadway (Julie Taymoor, we're talking to you), people are forgetting the true mission of super-heroes: LOOK GOOD IN TIGHTS. Luckily, my man Disgrace has been doing some moonlighting of late and has been making good on that area of the job description. Unfortunately, there's a few other things he forgot as well... See more after the jump.

Otterblog Alert: Benefit Show for a Saintly Fluer

Wednesday 11/17 at Rebar featured a cornucopia of talent directed at a worthy cause: a benefit show for local Burlesque sensation Fluer Du Mal (unfortunately, medical expenses and healthcare costs get the best of us somtimes!).   It was a star-studded evening with Sylvia, Ade, Miss Kitty Baby, Miss Kitty Baby, and yours truly in the Evil Always Win's Dancers (including Disgrace Jones and Ola Montrose - we brought it ON, baby).  Hosted by the all-time glamour divas Bovine DeSwine and Trixie Lane (from the kindergarten of burlesque), everyone was fabulous, gracious and glittery...
In case you missed the activities (a trunk show followed), you can still get in on the action in the following ways:
1) Buy from Ms. Du Mal's awesome pastie shop.  I have on several occassions and was the first Male Dandie model.
2) Get in touch w/the Trunk Show organizers (*Absolutely Fabulous) and kick back some greenbacks.
And be sure to catch the awesome gal in an upcoming Tarts show soon!
