a love from the past is sweet if it has grown into the present, but a love that has not grown with time probably isn't love at all.

PSYCHO BEACH PARTY TONIGHT!!!!! [05 Jun 2009|02:03pm]
[ mood | artistic ]

Psycho Beach Party TONIGHT!!! The Stripteasers,Irving Klaws,Stamplickers! Nietzches on Allen, doors at 10... BE THERE OR BE SQUARE!!!! :)

"Its not so groovy when there is a murder on the beach! Mystery, suspense, and random acts of Burlesque ensue in this classic who-done-it parody of the 1960's surf scene.

Bring your best gal or daddy-o to party the night away for Madina Madis' (Megan's) dirty 30th birthday! .Rockin tunes by the Irving Klaws and the Stamplickers. Also get leid by the Buffalo's infamous Stripteasers!"

FROM ART VOICE: http://artvoice.com/issues/v8n23/syt
Friday, June 5th
Psycho Beach Party

It’s Stripteasers frontwoman Madina Madis’ Dirty 30th Birthday Party this Friday (June 5), and the ‘Teasers are celebrating it with a “Psycho Beach Party” at Nietzsche’s, along with special guests the Irving Klaws and the Stamplickers (you’re all invited, too). They may not be trucking in any sand or sunshine, but rest assured there will be bikinis (or otherwise scantily-clad females), burlesque, and all kinds of birthday fun. Plus the usual comedy, music, subversive theater, and hilarious shock-treatment we expect from Buffalo’s favorite Burlesque troupe. The addition of the Irving Klaws (“a trio of psychotic, hard rocking maniacs”) and the Stamplickers should round out this murder-mystery/birthday bash extravaganza quite well.

10pm. Nietszche’s, 248 Allen St. (886-8539 / www.nietzsches.com)

It's just the beginning... [15 Dec 2008|08:08am]
[ mood | creative ]

"Dreaming Out of Digital" is done. Last night was a steller performance, sad that as soon as its perfected its over.

Doing the play was one of the best experiences of my life...

I am so proud that I was a part of it. I have met some really incredible people and gotten to know new sides of people that were already in my life.

I am blessed.

And apparantly I have a flair for acting. Who knew? Now I wish instead of worrying about stage fright in high school I would have just done it. Its intoxicating!

I know this show is the beginning of many more opportunities...

Thank you Megan, for letting me be a part of the Stripteasers, and allowing me to help realize your vision!!!

A little tease

This is not your grandfather’s burlesque show. Like plenty of people participating in the nationwide resurgence of the burlesque form, the women of Buffalo troupe the Stripteasers are dressing up (or down) like Gypsy Rose Lee and the slinky stars of the form’s heyday to transport audiences back to the prohibitionist era’s favorite type of near-illicit stage entertainment. But their performances, politically motivated and conceived as a critique of gender roles, are aimed as much at the brain as the libido.

Hence the Stripteasers’ new show, “Dreaming Out of Digital,” which comes to the ALT Theatre (255 Great Arrow Ave.) tonight through Dec. 14. Curiously enough, the Stripteasers’ performance deals with the forthcoming transition from analog to digital TV through good old-fashioned titillation and audience engagement. And if that’s not enough to get you out to the ALT (or to the troupe’s weekly performances at Roxy’s every Thursday), consider the ticket prices of $10 to $15 presale or $15 to $20 at the door.

For more information, visit www.alttheatre.com or the Stripteasers’ Myspace page at www.myspace.com/thestripteasers . — Colin Dabkowski

[ mood | tired ]

I feel very over-worked... ever since Johnnie "resigned" it has been sorta hellish at the Torrid, everyone is sort of tired and on edge, and there was inventory, which went well I think. Everything happens for a reason I guess... I just have to wait and see how this whole situation plays out before I make any irrational descions...

I am back in school, my classes seem worth it... I loooooove painting :) It is more self directed than ever, that could be good or bad. I think I just have to jump in!!!

Im really sad about having to miss Birthday Massacre on Sat, I was looking forward to it so much... I really wish I wasnt working... but there is nothing I can do. Its Chanda's daughter's birthday, and nobody else to close... there will be other shows I guess...

Tomorrow is my first day off in what seems like forever, and after class Im going to see "Putnam County Spelling Bee" at Sheas with my Grandma... it should be nice... :)

do it [21 Nov 2007|01:03pm]
Meme from my_daroga

You are the _____ to my _______.

It works like this: Basically, comment telling me that I am the (SOMETHING) to your (SOMETHING). I.e. if they think of you as a good friend, they may say you are the Ron Weasley to their Harry Potter. Or if you’re lovers, they could say that you are the Tuxedo Mask to their Sailor Moon. Get it? Pretty simple. And then, as memes are like contagious diseases, spread it in your own journal!

FUCK TORRID [25 Oct 2007|12:13am]
I didnt get the Part Time Assistant Manager position...

and what makes me fucking mad is that the new DM made the decision, Johnnie had nothing to do with it, the girl she interviewed didnt get hired either...

Johnnie pushed for me to get the job because she fucking rocks, she knows I love(d) my job and I care(d) about our customers. I sware the only reason I work there is for the girls... I love our team...

but yea.....

that new DM,JoAnn, bitch hired some random girl that applied on the internet...

Nobody even met her!!!

I am so fucking mad, I cant and wont be part of training someone who took my job.

I have been there OVER 2 FUCKING YEARS and this is what I get, I work my ass off...

"Cat, you have been here 2 years, you know how the store works and everything, but we are looking for someone with NEW ideas, but I mean if anything happens, and she doesnt accept, you are my next choice!"

IF IT AINT BROKE DONT FIX IT BITCH!!!! and I dont take sloppy seconds...

Welshie is probably leaving too, I dont know what to do...

Should I stay or should I go?

I am not going to find a job right before christmas....

and I couldnt leave right before the busy season...

I just really wanted that position... I am never going to be able to move out on my own, I need somthing with more pay, hours, and benefits...

I hate my life, I have been depressed all night... right after the interview I sat in my car and cried, Im a loser...

and I got my period today
and I cant see Brian because he has a test tomorrow and I have a project due
and my plans for tomorrow night were foiled...with good reason tho
and I have to pay $300 for my car to pass inspection (due the 31st)
and I am broke

on the bright side at least I looked majorly hot for my "interview" and the DM looked like a troll... short and stumpy with really fucked up teeth and the ugliest sweater Torrid has ever sold :) I bet I made her feel inferior... and she saw my calendar... haha... I may not get the job but at least I am sexy... I bet she is alone too... fucking bitch!!!!

WHO WANTS TO RUN THE NEW PERSON OUT OF TOWN???? come-on guys give her a hard time!!! once I find out her name you can e-mail complaints to the president of the company!!! Pretend you are Canadians for a day and fuck up the store when she is working... see if she can handle it... or see if she cracks...

Yesterday I went to go see VEIL, it made me feel like I was 16 again lol... Johnnie hasnt lost anything... she is so amazing...total rockstar....I think it is a true shame to keep that kind of talent to yourself... :(

Work has been very so-so lately, way to busy, more canadians than ever... and it just seems like nobody cares...

Hung out with Brian a bit, saw my Aunt and Uncle, not to much... school has felt pretty good... I like my painting class alot...

and speaking of... I am going to have one of my paintings in a show called "One Piece Wonders" at the Cosmopolitan Gallery on Main st... right near Hyatts... its a show about freaky art... the opening is Sat at 8... Im super excited....

I sorta kinda almost met Brian Molka!!!!!!!! [22 Aug 2007|01:16am]
First of all Id like to say that the Molsen Ampitheatre is not cool... the entire lawn was covered in goose shit and was wet...and the best part... they were taking people's blankets away... LAME... and we walked like 20 miles to find a mcdonalds...eww

But me and Csilla had a fucking blast!!!!! :)

anyways... Julien K is like my new favorite band... they are amazing!!! Its like if HIM and ORGY had a baby it would be Julien K.... :) and Litany got to meet them... bitch... lol

and PLACEBO was fabulous!!!! they even played NANCY BOY!!!!! I almost cried... and Brian looked so beautiful... he said he was wearing his bandmates underwear...it was great....and then after HIM we were walking around and there was a break in this fence thing... and there he was... he came over and was talking to this girl who was so dumb she was like "Im glad you played so much new stuff Im not familiar with" ew she is so wrong the only sonf off of Meds was Meds and maybe one other... the rest were old and amazing... no Bruise Pristine or Running Up That Hill though... but it was still good... and yea i was retarded and froze up....i couldnt even get my camera....o well... and yea...the show was kind of like they played all the songs that werent played at the last show at the Koolhaus... amazing...

HIM was also great!!! Ville looked sick... he was so bundled up with a hat and a scarf... and it got really foggy when they were on... I was slightly dissappointed in their set... all Dark light and the 2 new songs... only 2 of my real favorites... He was so hot though "I dont understand why people come and pay 100 dollars just to BOOOOOO.... We're not afraid of ghosts motherfuckers!" that was so funny. They are still fabulous and I love them...His voice is like pure sex!!! They will forever be my favorite band!!!!

MCR and TBS were not cool... Linkin Park was better than I thought..lots of memories with that band... we left early enough to beat the traffic... all and all I had a ton of fun!!!

a long drive Im tired....

goodnight all!!!!

[ mood | indifferent ]

Just so everyone knows I am a drama free zone. I love everyone. Period.

In other news the fair was fun, I went once with my parents and once with Amy (my sugar mama lol) and Brian.

Today I worked and went for Chinese.

Then walked it off. We will get skinny!!! lol any conversation that starts with... "I remember when my friends got gangbanged on the west side" is classic.

And omg me and Brian have been bowling alot lately, it all started when we went with Racheal, now we both totally kick ass lol, we tied at 113 one game, and he got like 127 another one, considering where we started that rocks.

Work has been good, I really need the extra money before school starts.

Tomorrow Im going to the Bills preseason game.

Next Tues is Projekt Revolution in Toronto!!!! WOOT!!!

Then school....

and our 2 year anniversary....
