11:32PM - Combat Con June 24th-26th Tuscany Suites Las Vegas

 thecombatcon.com is a new convention in Vegas focused on soooooo many of my favorite things: SF&F, Steampunk, Pirates, Horror, and, most of all, fencing. Most of you who've seen me perform know about my rapier fetish. So I'm rounding up volunteers, curating the art show and hosting the costume competition on short notice, but feeling gloriously alive about the whole thing. I know some of you are artists, so if you have works you'd like to show contact me ASAP. Even if you can only come one day (Sat. is the costume competition and Time Travelers Ball.) or can't come at all, but know of someone who wants to learn to do Zombie make up, dance to celtic rock dressed as Dr. Who or Harry Potter, or talk to experienced film makers and writers, please pass the link on.

It’s been decided. On October 20th, 2010, we will wear purple in honor of the 6 gay boys who committed suicide in recent weeks/months due to homophobic abuse in their homes and at their schools. Purple represents Spirit on the LGBTQ flag and that’s exactly what we’d like all of you to have with you: spirit. Please know that times will get better and that you will meet people who will love you and respect you for who you are, no matter your sexuality. Please wear purple on October 20th. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and schools.

Since our food server Nikki left to start her nursing career, we have been subjected to continuous bad service. Met with the manager today and was basically informed that we aren't the kind of people they want there. So we are moving to other locations. I have another east side eatery that wants us at least once a month, and would really appreciate someone volunteering to host one in the northwest monthly. Just please don't plan it on the 3rd sat. or the 1st. sunday. Everything else is open at this point.

3:39PM - Tonight 7:30pm at The Freakin' Frog the Mistress of Merriment presents "Lyrical Ladies"


Melbourne Singer/Songwriter Penelope Swales will tour internationally in 2008 to promote her 9th solo CD Skin: Deep - Polymorphous Love Songs
"I used to traipse around the place, having love affairs and singing about politics" quips Penelope. "Now I study politics and only want to sing about love.”
Fans of Swales's political material should not despair. In truth, there is plenty that is political about Skin: Deep. "So Lucky" is the obvious track here, as it invites the listener to consider the ways in which we in industrialized democracies take our good fortune for granted, both forgetting the role previous radicals played in creating our freedoms and overlooking the fact that, as willing consumers, we play a central role in an economic system that creates massive inequity on a global scale.

But there is also running through the album a deep chord of rebellion. At a time when sexual conservatism seems to be again on the rise, Swales is championing the individual woman's right to explore, own her body and define the nature of her desires. Skin: Deep ventures deep into the uncharted territory of human relationships exploring themes such as polyamory, jealousy, compassion, grief and confidence. The nature of loyalty and disloyalty, greed and generosity, and the often unspoken role that power plays in eroticism are all addressed with unnerving honesty and accuracy. Swales, now in her late thirties, has clearly lived much of what she is writing about, and brings an astute sensibility to the subject matter that younger, less worldy or less truthful songwriters fall short of. There are no ideals here, just bulletins from a life lived with passion and veracity.

Tracey "Hope" Miravite
Tracey began playing guitar at the age of 12 and by 13, she had paved her way into the realm of music, by learning drums and bass guitar. Slowly but surely, she began to write and compose her own music. By the age of 17, with a few songs under her belt, she decided to start recording, and turned her childhood pastime into a lifetime passion. "A life without music is no life at all," says Tracey, and her life is expressed genuinely in her music and vividly in her performances. Influences include Travis, the Cardigans, Stereophonics, Radiohead, Weezer, Sarah McLachlan, and Charlotte Martin. She lives in Vegas and fronts a couple of bands.

And, your hostess, Renee Christy, will be doing poetry, comedy, chiding and dirty blues between these lovely sirens. No cover, but if you like these ladies, please tip and/or buy CDs.

Apologies if you see this more than once. It means we probably have things in common and you should come meet us. Bi, poly, kinky, geeky and sexy are good things.

The Freakin' Frog is a non-smoking bar, with good food and great beer. Located on Maryland Parkway, between Tropicana and Harmon, behind Adam's Ribs.
