I’ve been trying to do this new format of my upcoming events by just having one post that gets updated that stays at the top of my blog, but then you RSS readers are missing out on the updates. I know because I’m an RSS reader—in general—and I rarely click through to the actual sites I read. Sometimes, especially if it’s a design blog, but rarely. (I also unsubscribe to a blog almost immediately if the full post isn’t available in the RSS. There are exceptions, but they are few.)
There’s some exciting things coming up in New York City that you shouldn’t miss!
This weekend, on Saturday night, there’s Boxer’s Off: Butch Burlesque (there are already 70+ RSVPs on Facebook, so I’d say get there early):
Valentines Day Primer & Fundraiser for Cheryl B. WTF Cancer Diaries
with emcee Lea Robinson as L Boogie
Stonewall Inn (53 Christopher St .)
Saturday, February 12th, 2011
Doors at 7, show starts at 7:30
Join Boxers Off! An Evening of Butch Burlesque for a special Valentine’s Day Primer & fundraiser for Cheryl B.’s WTF Cancer Diaries. Lea Robinson as L Boogie emcees this especially sexy edition with out of town guests Johnny Blazes from Boston, El Beardo of Ptown, and sultry R&B musical guest Lady Zen from Maine. NY performers taking the stage in glitter covered hotness include Goldie Peacock, Kelli Dunham, Dapper Q, Daddy TYE, Molly Equality Dykeman, Drae Campbell/Miss Lez 2010, Tanika L.A Harbor, and Lindsay Naas. Luna-C will take care of all of your raffle needs while Mieke’s go-go dancers sweat the night away.
All y’all who complain about the lack of butches in New York should be there. Because, hello. Butches taking their clothes off!
If you’re going out on a high-pressure date on Valentine’s Day, consider jerking off first as Hot Movies offers their entire network for free:
To celebrate Valentine’s Day, HotMovies.com is offering their entire network for free between 4 and 6 PM Eastern Standard Time, February 14th and launching HotMoviesForCouples.com.
But why give away streaming video on Valentine’s Day? “It’s all about safety,” Cybert explained. “A lot of people will be going out on dates, even though it is a Monday night. Collectively, that’s a lot of stress and pressure out there on the streets. All I’m saying is, don’t go out with a loaded gun.”
And in case you don’t already have plans for Valentine’s Day, and are in the New York area, don’t miss Nerd Love: A Valentine’s Day Party for the Rest of Us:
Love nerd stuff? Love nerds? In the midst of nerd love? Just want a break from all the Hallmark Crap? NERD LOVE is the perfect Valentine’s Day event
We’re starting at 6, so you still have time to go out to dinner or whatever other fancy VD stuff you want to do. And there will be special guests. And Cheryl B and Kelli Dunham will be recreating their first date as told by the bears in the xtranormal video. And there will be a NERD OFF with fabulous prizes. So come prepared to spend exactly a minute showing off the nerdiest thing you do. (Email kellidunham (at) gmail.com to ensure your place in the NERD OFF, although we will take sign-ups at the door.) WITH NERD GUESTS and special CELEBRITY JUDGES FOR THE NERD OFF!
Also there will be special colored name tags for folks that mean things like “I’m shy but please hit on me I’m single!”
To be honest, Kristen and I haven’t made Valentine’s Day plans yet. We might end up at Nerd Love. With our anniversary, winter solstice, and her recent new job (did you hear? Whole update on that coming soon), I have gone through a lot of really good present ideas lately, but I’m sure I can come up with something more. We have both been out and about a lot lately, so I have the impression a night in with just the two of us might be preferred. Maybe I’ll surprise her with something fancy at home, since she’ll be at work all day after all. Hm. Still undecided, exactly.
I wrote a few things for other places this week …
- Sugarbutch Says: Happy Anniversary, “Boys for Pele”: My homage to the Tori Amos album that changed my life is over on AfterEllen.com. If you want to hear the entire Boys for Pele album, I made a YouTube playlist with the entire album versions of the tracks (including the videos for “Caught a Lite Sneeze,” “Hey Jupiter,” and “Talula”).
- Mr. Sexsmith’s Other Girlfriend: Can Your Relationship Handle Valentine’s Day Gifts? Some of my relationship theories on SexIs Magazine. I don’t usually link to (or pimp out) my SexIs Magazine column, mostly because of all the drama surrounding EF in the sex blog world, but I have heard lately that my traffic is pretty low, so if you feel like supporting me, please click through, even if you don’t read it, to keep me going there. Having a weekly column that actually pays me has been really helpful financially while I’m getting on my feet, and a lot of good practice, which is why I’m still providing content for them.
You can also follow the recent publications “blog” part of mrsexsmith.com if you’d like to keep up with articles I write elsewhere.
I just sent out a monthly newsletter, so you missed it this time, but if you’d like to get the next one sign up with your email address here and you’ll also get the password to the protected posts. While I wasn’t looking somehow the mailing list grew to more than 1,000—thanks, y’all! I’ll try to make the (monthly) updates interesting to read.
I think that’s all for now … I have some posts in the works, so more “real” writing (and less event announcements/sex toy reviews) coming soon.
