crush

We’ve only met briefly once, at the first Bohemian Carnival, but I remembered her. At the second, I didn’t see her but she said that she watched me from the balcony of the DNA lounge, and shortly after she found me online, where we have talked, just a bit – one message a night, both being quite open, honest – both getting just a bit bold.

Our first date is on Halloween, in costume.

I told her that when we first meet I don’t want her to say anything, nor will I, and I will take her hands and we’ll wander off side by side, and find a place off of the busy Halloween streets of San Francisco that is somewhat private, and dark.

There, I will press her up against the wall, look into her eyes as long as I can stand,
and then kiss her, for the first time – very slowly, teasing us both, lips just barely touching as we taste each others warm breath on our lips…

I do believe that this is going to be a lovely Halloween.

Fuck YEAH!

Now THIS is going to be a show that out-does them all!

 

 I can’t tell ya how excited we all are about it – it’s going to be HUGE! This will be a very, very special show, the most earth-shattering event to happen in San Francisco since 1906, and we would absolutely love you to come – not only because we’ve put it together specifically for you, but also because if you miss it, it’s really going to suck when you hear friend after friend tell you how amazing it was. This time, we’re pulling out all the stops, and doing things even more unconventionally than usual.

 

Your beautiferous hosts, Vau de Vire Society and Gooferman, have collaborated to bring you such a delicious blend of San Francisco and L.A. underground that it’s absolutely certain to make this a night that won’t be soon forgotten – if ever!

 

Mark your calendars for Saturday, November 18th, because on that extraordinary evening, we will bring you more sexy sexiness, deliciously talented talent, and entertainingly entertaining entertainment than you could ever wish to see –  and I can and WILL guarantee you, you won’t see it anywhere else – not under one roof, on one stage, and in one evening, at least, and not in such a intimate setting. Performers on the floor in front of and behind you, in the air above you, on the stage, in your drink – and maybe, juuuuust maybe, even in your pants, if you’re lucky – or, if we are. We’re certainly going to do our best to get there!

 

Okay, I know you’re absolutely itching to know what the details are, so here’s the lineup that we have so far –

 

 (CAUTION! Your rapturous reaction to what you are about to read MAY NOT BE WORK SAFE!)

 

Okay, ready? Here’s what we have for you:

Our entire Vau de Vire Society family will be on hand this month to co-host with our GOOFERMAN pals a very special show!  We’re bubbling with excitement at this month’s linup:  

 

Cirque Berzerk  www.cirqueberzerk.com   Direct from LA-LA land and armed with an amazing ensemble of performers, we welcome our co-conspirators of the Red Nose District, the fabulous Cirque Berzerk!

 

Luxxury  www.myspace.com/luxxury  …”record-release party!”. In June ’06 Vau de Vire combined forces with Luxxury on the making of their music video “Dirty Girls”…which we’ll be premiering at Bohemian Carnival as well as joining our friends for a very-anticipated LIVE collaboration. After taking Europe by storm last month, Luxxury returns home to release their debut LP, “Rock and Roll” (is Evil).  New Noise, London exclaimed, “This mash-up of glam rock, disco and synth-pop, played at a thumping pace, comes on like a slightly nastier, sleazier Scissor Sisters fronted by Heaven 17’s Glenn Gregory, and we rather like that in a band.”

 

DJ Laird  www.djlaird.com  …another long-awaited collaboration, our pal Laird will be on hand to make the dance-floor thump while Vau de Vire adds an accompaying visual spectacle to the mix…just give us a reason, and Laird is plenty of one.

 

Xeno  www.xenodrome.com  Our monthly cohorts in crime at Bohemian Carnival, Xeno will be doing what they do the best…showing off amazing choreography and providing us the ass-shakin’ ambient beats throughout the night.  May we say what a pleasure it is to have these ground-breaking performers as a monthly staple at Bohemian Carnival…yes we may!

 

Nick.the.Neck www.cirqueberzerk.com Cirque Berzerk brings with them  their very own mix-master extrordinaire Nick.the.Neck.

 

Miranda Caroligne and friends www.mirandacaroligne.com  Miranda is the lovely lady behind many of Vau de Vire’s more fashionable couture (yes, mike’s skirts).  As a special treat, impromptu fashion shows will be popping up and out through out the evening…yum!

 

and your hosts:

Vau de Vire Society www.vaudeviresociety.com  When VdV began our journey together 2-years ago, we never expected at this point to have such a beautifully talented bad-ass family with friends that support our endeavors like y’all have.  On this Special Evening, expect the largest ensemble of Sexy-Stylie Vau de Virians ever assembled.  We promise you a multitude of titillating adventures throughout the night…don’t miss this one! 

 

GOOFERMAN www.gooferman.com  Your Bohemian Carnival Co-Hosts the Gooferman dudes are planning a unique tag-team set with Nick.the.Neck while debuting the Circus Metropolus performers.  Ain’t no party unless the Klowns are involved!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Saved a Hummingbird today, trapped inside the kitchen window of Kevin & Elliot’s place. Even got to pet it a couple of times before it regained it’s senses and flew away. (Much more gratifying for me than for it I’m sure, but the love was there, and besides – how often do you get to pet a Hummingbird?)

Okay – back to packing and cleaning…

Gods, I look forward to having an actual home. Borrowed rooms and couches for only a little over a month until my “permanent” home is available. *This*, however, has been the best I’ve ever had, with fantastic people and dear friends – not to mention amazingly generous hosts…

Okay, really. Back to packing & cleaning…

and just like that…

I haven’t been worried. Well, most of the time I haven’t been – sometimes I had to catch myself and get back into knowing it would happen the way it was supposed to – always has, always will.
Meditated on what I wanted, put out the energy to manifest it, then posted.

Boom.

I recieved an IM earlier today from a friend, letting me know of a posting she saw from another friend of ours who *just* let it be known she was looking for a housemate. Called her up, talked, got the info – and I meet the other house-mate on Monday. If he likes me, I’m in.

Duboce Triangle, close to everything on 15th at Noe – a short walk away from the Mission & Lower Haight, in a beautiful neighborhood, and about a block away from the street car that takes me directly to the Wharf, and pretty much any other bus I could ever need. Top floor in a large Victorian, large kitchen, livingroom, hard wood floors and a beautiful garden with a lawn. 13×13 room, one small closet in the room and a large one in the hallway. Creative people. Healthy eaters. Wireless DSL.

Oh, and – $450/month, in the heart of San Francisco. She’s lived there for 23 years.

Fuck YEAH.

It won’t be available until beginning/mid December so I’ll be somewhat homeless until then (and looking for couches, hint hint), but goddamn – I have a home!

Hooray for the Cosmic WOW!

Created in you

Created in you, someting I could believe in
someone
I could believe in

Enchanted, mesmerized
shaded in a gauze of wishes
and dreams of what could be

But that wasn’t you, was it?
It wasn’t what
we both thought you were.

Still, and always,
I love you
Still, and always
I wish the time were right

Because what I see is there
somewhere inside, and
I am never wrong
but my timing sucks
and this lifetime

is not for us.
And I swore I would love you forever
and I told you of the beauty I saw
and I told you I was yours and

I will
It is there
and I am

but this lifetime
is not for us.

I know of your dreams
and your fears, but
you have become your fears
your insecurities
and I will never know
your secrets
and I will never know
your heart, again –

and you have never known mine.

The van could work, but…

I would much rather have a home. A room to hang my thingies and make it pretty, a place for my sewing machine, my costumes, my stilts.
A place that is actually a home, because since I have decided to stay in San Francisco I need one.

Since I arrived back here from New Orleans (via That Thing In The Desert) almost two months ago I have been housed (and rediculously cared for) by the most incredibly wonderful hosts and dear friends, but hell – it’s *their* home, not mine, and the room I have been staying in needs to be turned back into a massage room. I would prefer to live in the city due to convenience and work transit, becuase I gotta tell you – it’s a pain in the ass to run back and forth from one side of the bay to the other gathering and dropping off performancs tools, and on top of that, it’s expensive.

I would prefer a room in the Mission, of course, with creative, easy going people. I don’t do drama, i won’t interrupt you while you’re reading unless it’s really important, I do my dishes and frequently all of them if I have the time. I respect the hell out of common spaces and view where I live as a sanctuary from the beautiful insanity that everything outside the doors offers me. Many respectable people  think I’m an allright kind of guy.

Ummm – I’ve decided to chase my dreams and so now I’m a street performer these days, which will easily make a rent of $600/mo –  plus reasonable bills  entirely do-able, but I also have recently been picked up by Vau de Vire Society, doing performance and promotions for them – http://www.vaudeviresociety.com – and have frequent or occasional corporate gigs. Essentially what I’m trying to say is that I’ll always come through with rent and bills, and I really hope that one of those bills is for wireless internet.

If you have a room available soon, or know of anyone who does, please let me know ASAP – because like I said, the van could work, but…

…and I think sometimes that I most certainly don’t know
and I think sometimes that I want to
and I think somtimes that
I want to meet
someone to share
our lives together…

And I don’t like feeling lonely so I don’t
all dressed up in an exquisite lie
happy by myself to do what I want
but sometimes
I want someone to call ‘you’.

I’m not a prize
but i look pretty
I have my skeletons but
I will let you know their names

I’m not a prize
but I ain’t so bad
If you’re the right one
You may just break through
the bones.
