Rather than blogging about recent events, I am going to show you what I've been working on for the past few weeks.

A friend invited me to dance at her bachelorette hafla back in June. I know this lady originally from the Solstice Parade (she dances, I drum), but then I was her Riff at my first Rocky show up here, at the Cuff. Given the shared background I figured it was meet and proper that I create a Frank-N-Furter bedlah and choreography for her and promptly got to work.

Thankfully, I am surrounded by creative and competent people. I talked to my friend Will (DJ D00d), who had wowed me with his tabla remix of Ministry's "Every Day is Halloween", and asked him if he'd be willing to play with me on this. He was game, thank god, and I sent him a copy of Anthony Head's "Sweet T" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Uq2vaP2cLU) to tinker with while I got other stuff rolling. I also talked to my costumer friend Cindy and asked if she could help me out with the top and skirt I had envisioned...I can sew, but stretch fabrics just do better on a serger, and I haven't gotten the nerve up to try and learn how to use mine yet. I sure wasn't going to try to conquer the learning curve with this project. She also said she'd be happy to help.

And then the project languished for a couple of weeks while I concentrated on healing the calf muscle I'd torn. I finally got a sketch to Cindy (way too close to the deadline for me to admit, frankly) and she said it would be no problem.
