I love that, with our jobs; spelling, punctuation and grammar aren't all that important.

Mascara is the stuff you put on your eyelashes to make them look long and luscious. I can't decide if I like it better than the lip gloss or not...

Lurk

His show involves transforming himself into a big fat ugly woman onstage and then embarrassing adolescent males who can't help being attracted to him because they contain more hormones than sense. Its very avant-gard. It doesn't rock as such.

Heh, the money, that's a good one.
I'm in it for the loose change, the crumpled ones, and that constant paranoic twinge that someone I pissed off is going to bludgeon me from behind. Of course there is also the lack of sleep, the manic/depressive roller-coaster, having to suck-up to people who devour souls (and careers) for a living, the extra searches at the airport ("Yessir, I'm a performer, that's why I have torches, matches, electronic ignition switches, gunpowder, wireless transmitters, magnesium, a nine millimeter, and a bag of broken glass in my suitcase. Wanna see a card trick?"), and the sex. Oh, that's why I do it, because I love screwing myself so much.

I also love pitch polotics. Ya know, waiting around, scoping out the other performers trying to figure out who is gonna go crazy next. Gossiping about which performer sucks the worst. Playing mind games on the newbie performers so that they won't come back. Sucking cock in the bathroom stall in exchange for a good time slot. Taking it in the ass for the great time slot.

and the big payoff at the end of the day.... fucking two 18 year old girls at the same time (never check ID's).

" the extra searches at the airport "

Oh oh oh ..... funny story:

The last time I was at the airport I got pulled over by Security at that little beepy machine. They were looking in my bag. I come up to them to "explain". I'm wearing all black, my mini-skirt has metal hanging all over it, my shirt has a white skull and crossbones. My earings are: a skull with a mohawk, a dangling dagger, a dagger post, a skill with a snake crawling through it, and a rat. I'm They look at my knives; they look at me with an eyebrow raised. They look at my toilet plungers; they look at me with confusion. They look at my rubber chickens; they look at me with complete and utter non-comprehension. I smile sweetly, wrinkle my nose in that cute way, and say "Sex toys".

They waived me through.

First you'll never get anywheres in life making enemies with "newbies", second what you do on yur spare time has nothing to do with performing, so quit tryin to win the crowd and showing off,,,,,,,,sorry if thats a "inside" joke, I dont get it and its not funny, I hope your act is better then your jokes



aHaha Woofnah that is a classic situation
Doctor Eric having to suck up to people who devour souls, good one man. You put in words what I couldn't. Its only cause when they were young they never found their own!!!!

The ritual of applying makeup before a show is one of my favorite parts. It is my best effort to get in touch with my feminine side.

Perhaps my arms just aren't long enough...

Martin, I am offended by your speculative description of my show. To my knowledge, you have never seen me perform or know anything about me apart from what you've read on this forum. Your feeble attempts at sarcasm have fallen short once again, for I am most certainly not "big", "fat", or "ugly" onstage - hairy perhaps - but that is as far as I'll go on a public forum. As for the rest of the description, I'm afraid to admit it, but you're spot on.

What more can I say after having worked topless on the Vegas strip for three years?

PS. Cranberry LS-8 is my favorite lipstick color.

My favourite part is creating a sig that tells people who I am and roughly something I represent without being completely repetitively obnoxious and using up 37% of screen real estate.
