Tuesday, January 27, 2009 Sex Worker Literati: A KGB Reading
Friday, February 6, 2009 Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm KGB Bar 85 East 4th Street New York, NY
Elisabeth Eaves, David Henry Sterry, Tracy Quan
$EX AFTER THE CRASH
Myths, fairy tales, and real strategies for surviving when your body is your business. In a city recovering from Ponzi schemes, inflated earnings, and rampant exuberance, sex workers struggle to deliver essential pleasures - and pay their bills.
Wednesday, February 02, 2005 From Barbie to Astro Turf I loved M.G. Lord's biography of Barbie (yes that Barbie) so much that I wrote two very different pieces about it. One piece appeared on Salon and the other...?
Disappeared into some version of Internet Limbo. Occasionally I stumble across a shadow of its former existence. I still get email from people looking for the original which mysteriously vanished from Urban Desires.
So, if anyone has a record of its existence, I'd love to see it! It also disappeared from my hard drive when I was switching computers... don't ask. I was less organized in those days.
But that's not the point. MG has a new book out. This time it's about the fly me to the moon crowd whom, she says, could imagine setting up house on Mars but couldn't imagine women working alongside men at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. I have heard that there is something about a sex cult at JPL which got mentioned in The Washington Post this weekend... Would somebody be kind enough to send me the review from Wash Post?? The combo of science and gossip is bound to intrigue my dad (a man of science who failed to pass on those particular genes to his daughter.) So he is getting a signed copy pronto... (I did inherit his fondness for salacious gossip.)
MG is coming to New York! On Monday 2/14 at 7:30, she will be signing books and chatting with Dava Sobel at Hayden Planetarium on the Wild West Side -- the other side of the park. Can I pry myself away from the East Side and get to the Museum of Natural History? The problem is, getting a crosstown cab on St. Valentine's Day at 7:00 pm is a huge challenge. Have you noticed what a disastrous night that is for transportation? But I am looking into it.
Wednesday, February 12, 2003 Friday the 14th: Like a Virgin Mimosa, I'm waiting patiently to be picked up... and taken to Neke Carson's Piano Party.
This morning, I received a message, urging me to...
JOIN THE MELLOW MADNESS OF NEKE CARSON'S PIANO PARTY
When: Every Friday 6-8 pm
Where: in the Lobby at the Gershwin Hotel
7 East 27th Street (between Fifth and Madison Ave.) New York, New York 10016
IT ALL STARTS FRIDAY FEBRUARY 14 VALENTINE'S DAY 6-8 PM!
Neke Carson will perform his new composition: "Love is Blind." Karen Schwartz will be doing Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue." Underage Carnegie Hall performer Steven Lynch will play a new romantic composition for all the starry-eyed lovers in the world. Complimentary virgin mimosas will be served by the Hotel. And hopefully we will all wake up next morning with hangovers.
