It just looks so tempting right now. I turned on the shower and put a load in the washer to give me goals. But it’s just sitting there on the counter and I’m so close.

A bunch of drunk college kids tried to play “Alice in Wonderland”

I cry of laughter everytime I watch this. 

this is my spirit video

This is how I want to spend my 21st birthday. Drunk of my ass and dressed up for a Alice in Wonderland tea party.

When do you turn 21? This can easily be arranged.

When I started out I definitely wasn’t demanding fancy dressing rooms and making people treat me like a star… I’ve seen girls do it, and I discovered early on that when you don’t ask for all that and you just do a good job, well, they want to do nice things for you, you know?

Bring enough champagne and pastie glue to share. And bringing cheap champagne is not bringing champagne. - Ming Dynatease


Burlesque has always been a bit about the grift.  Dancers since the beginning have been milking their scandals and achievements to promote themselves ie. Liz Renay and her jail time and Tura Satana and her “title” Miss Japan Beautiful.  It gleefully happens today in New Burlesque as well, but it’s best to pick something that you know no one else can lay claim to.  It’s more fun that way too.   For instance, after returning from a tour of war torn Sarajevo with a theater company in the early ’90s, I wasn’t top billed there in a big burlesque review but in fact I was working in a childrens theater during the day!  I believe, though, that I really did earn the “title” of International Burlesque Sensation.  Notice how vague?  Which countries?  “First fan dancer in Post-war Bosnia” was probably true too and I don’t think anyone will fight me for that one!

Don’t smoke backstage and don’t drink anything near other performers’ costumes. Ask the producer before you arrive if there are hangers and mirrors so you can be prepared. It is great to be self sufficient and many modern dressing rooms unfortunately require it. Backstage is a private place where people are dressing, focusing and working and often quite cramped.

If a performer forgets her eyelash glue and you have some tucked away in your highly organized suitcase that you secretly don’t want to mess up……get in there and share your shit. If you borrow someone’s shit, respect their property!

Please do not push your fellow performers down the stairs. In spite of what Hollywood might tell you, it will not up your status or pay.
