I went to a reading tonight because a friend of mine was involved. At first I was ready to roll out of that joint as fast as my legs would carry me.
The first reader was a woman who read about the plight of female bodybuilders. Apparently there is some controversy about the fact that they are also judged on their femininity. I guess that sucks, but then again man-bodied women suck a little bit too.
Luckily, the next performer was a kick ass writer named Lisa Crystal Carver. She had people act out scenes from her book rather than just relying on a reading. She told the tale of living and growing up in a punk rock band and amidst the lifestyle therein.
At one point a girl covered in ketchup that she was using as blood jumped off the stage and started making out with me. She slapped me and was surprised when I slapped her back. (Look, with the talk about the way I feel about body building women and slapping this woman, I am beginning to sound like a real jerk Please forgive me) Anyway, the show ended with a woman getting on a table and peeing on a pizza.
Peeing on a pizza.
