Saturday, October 23rd 2010, The Nautch Conspiracy is doing a wicked zombie set and we are making our debut with fire!
I created this poster in the style of 60s horror movie posters. I like it big time

To all those who missed out on Billygoat, you really missed out. The show was amazing, very inspiring, an all around wonderful cinematic experience. HM157 went to town decorating the landscape of the backyard and the first outdoor show of the season was a major success. It’s good to be back outside! Looking forward to the dance there on the 17th of April and to seeing Featherbeard in several upcoming shows.
Before I went to experience the Billygoat, I attended a most delightful cocktail party and competition hosted by the savvy and sultry couple powerhaus, Jennifer and Matt Matich. The competition was set like the Iron Chef, where each contestant brought secret ingredients [like lavender, ginger, caramel syrup, pear, tamarind paste, etc.] and all were challenged to create a glorious concoction unlike any other. There were some true mixologist breakthroughs, and also some mixologist tragedies. My favorite drink was the lavender lemon martini.
Saturday daytime, the lovely and brilliant Ms. Kelly Marie led us through DTLA on an urban hike of epic proportions. In and out of beautiful buildings, up and down space age elevators, crossing bridges in the sky, riding down the Angel’s Flight (souvenir ticket in hand), eating a strawberry donut at the Nickel diner, buying sassy $5 pink shades on Los Angeles St., ending up at Raggedy Threads to play dress up and finally catching the Red Line and Dash home.
I love Kelly Marie. We were hunting for some matchy dresses for a 1930s themed square dance we are doing next weekend. The dress goal was a fail, but the ride was a lovely success – like usual, the process and journey, is what is important. I have two embarrassing confessions – I had never been in the Bradbury building until Saturday – what a gem!!! gorgeous…. And all this time I thought that the Bradbury building had been named after Ray Bradbury, oops… wrong era! It was built in 1893.
The rest of the weekend will have to be recapped in a top ten list in no particular order:
#1. eating fire with Jen and Hannah
#2. dancing with the Nautch Project
#3. dinner with lovely Charlene at the Kitchen

a thankful person is a happy person, and I feel really thankful right now. xo c
