This Thursday night I’ll be helping my long-time collaborator Kevin Maher kick off his new monthly variety show at Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinemas! Come explore the fang-tastic world of onscreen animal attacks — you can count on me to bring a few choice Meet The Lady deep cuts from my film collection.

In case you were wondering, all the action here has moved over to Tumblr, a blogging format that lets me answer questions from readers in addition to stockpiling the kinds of informative posts I hope will help people improve their own tarot practice. You can follow tags to find readings focusing on specific cards, if that’s your thing.
I keep this site up because some folks have told me they still use it as a reference. So do I, though a lot of the links are broken as the internet keeps cannibalizing itself.
I’ve also made a FB page for the site which you’re welcome to follow, though I haven’t begun actively cross-posting there yet.
Thanks for reading! And for allowing yourself to be read.

New round of shows to look forward to this fall! By special request I’ll be resurrecting my Meet The Lady variety show during the weekend of New York Comic Con. Two nights later, I’ll be a guest at Bonnie & Maude’s witch-centric event at the Bell House. Then I’ll have an entire week to prepare for another Kitty Nights hosting gig, right before I head out west for some improvised storytelling at the Torch Theatre — the first time I’ve performed in my home state in almost fifteen years!
Let’s erase all our old memories, and make some new ones.
Meet The Lady has been on hiatus ever since the closure of 92Y Tribeca, but thanks to New York Comic Con we’ll be back in full force this fall! Come to see us on October 11th at Union Hall for Meet The Lady: Bullets & Bracelets, our tribute to all things Wonder Woman! Join us for clips, live performances, and a costume contest, followed by a rager with DJ Accident Report.

My show-buddy Kevin Maher and I have been pining for the days of 92Y Tribeca, where we each presented variety shows for several years (my Meet The Lady is a direct descendant of Kevin Geeks Out). We recently concocted a new joint show to test-run at The Actor’s Fund Arts Center in downtown Brooklyn — one which we envisioned as an excuse to simply screen and chat about our favorite obscure film clips, inviting occasional guests to do the same.
Our show on July 15th was a modest success, made less modest by the contributions of burlesque sensation Fem Appeal and VICE journalist Harmon Leon. Below are a few pics courtesy of Tom Henning, I’ll be sure to post an announcement when we have the next date booked.
…I’ll be hosting this “Moulin Rouge” Singalong event at Alamo Drafthouse (NYC-area), the day after Valentine’s Day!
• On January 5th I’ll be hosting the first Kitty Nights Burlesque show of 2014. Come check out the newly renovated Mug Lounge and listen as I read excerpts from Hollywood memoirs between performances.
• On January 15th I’ll be appearing in Los Angeles to help out with Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab’s will-call event at Dark Delicacies. Please come and say hi!
• On January 30th, the Never Sleep Alone crew will be descending onto Joe’s Pub yet again to teach the sexy, freshly-scrubbed masses how to get dirty with each other.
I attended MoMA PS1′s drag ball this weekend and turned a few heads with my “sparkling, towering mummy bride” get-up (including Style.com’s – here I am in their Style File post about the event).
I wanted to do a campy riff on “The Bride of Frankenstein,” since this year has been all about the Reprint Elsa campaign. In fact, I was also featured on the Opening Ceremony blog (see picture below) and they quoted me about the project:
Do you have anything in common with your costume character?
“I’m actually working on a campaign to get Elsa Lanchester’s out-of-print memoir reprinted. [Lanchester starred in the 1935 version of The Bride of Frankenstein.] I’m trying to get her book out there again.”
I’m hosting/producing a gaggle of seemingly unrelated events in the next few weeks, at locations all over New York City. Come and see!
