weekend update

February 9, 2009




cb & i went to go get him some stylish new specs (pop over to his blog to check them out and throw him some love) and went to see the new action movie ‘push’.  in between specs and movie, we had dinner at old country buffet.  yes, indeed – we ventured out to ocb.  i’m truly at a loss for words as to why we went there.  as for the movie, it’s a rental at best.  you’re not missing anything if you don’t see it tho’.


matt, cb & i went to dinner and then to a performance art/cabaret show.  the show itself was actually really good – from really incredible slam poetry, to some interesting dance (and some very not interesting dance; there was even a group of hawai’ian singers & dancers that was kinda cool.  

the star of the show tho’, hands down was kats d fukasawa’s new performance piece called ‘secret affair of a cherry tree’.  here’s a pic:


here’s a close up:


if you have any idea what your looking at, let us know – we need a bit of help.  when you look up performance art in the dictionary, this is the picture that should come up.  

  • boy in drag?  check
  • head to toe white kabuki makeup?  check
  • simulated vaginal bleeding?  check
  • using simulated vaginal blood as makeup?  check
  • awkward walk/dance ala’ japanese horror movies?  check
  • avant garde music?  check


honestly, i have no idea what it all meant, but i gotta say – couldn’t take my eyes off of it.   kinda dug it.

there was also this amazingly cool drag performer (which so does not do her justice… ) irita foucault.    she seriously kicked some butt too…. i’m trying to figure out how i can hire her to do shows for me.  loved her.


not a damn thing, slept in, then took a long nap.  in between matt made me german chocolate cupcakes and watched movies and wonder woman with me.   like i said, he’s a keeper.
