“The Secret of The Sisterhood invites some of the most prolific, iconic and diverse women of our generation to come together in front of our intimate audience, and share personal stories…”

So said the promo email. All I saw was the photo of Kayden Kross. The names at first were irrelevant but afterward I saw Pamela Des Barres and realized I wanted to see if not meet the author and former rock groupie.

It looked like a great show. I wanted to attend and cover the event but hadn’t found out about it until the night before when I got the email from their press agent and impulsively bought a ticket.

I’m still based in San Diego as of this writing but have been groaning to take another roadtrip. Even one as short as up to L.A. for the day. Just anything to get out of this sunny peaceful town. I’ve been thinking about Vegas again, which I was at only five weeks ago for AVN and InterNEXT. Or maybe Portland or Seattle when the weather warms up a bit more. Even Dallas or NOLA. Hell, I’ll drive to D.C. just to visit the National Gallery this summer. I need a roadtrip so badly.

But then an hour before setting out for Hollywood Forever I realized that my mini Reviewervan, the Safari, had yet to be smogged and tagged for 2018, and it was the day before it was due and when the registration fee would go up. I’d been lagging. So I opted to try and get it to pass smog and then registered at a place where I can do both and pay extra for the tag before trying to make it to the show 100 miles to the north in Hollywood. On a good night I can make it in an hour and a half to the Rainbow bar,

I eventually foregoed the ride to stay in town and take care of this detail. My van needed work. I’m so responsible.

No refund I guess on the ticket I bought. I’ll just consider it a small donation to the cause of women in Hollywood’s Secret Underground Society Of Hotties.

Plus there’s that photo of Kayden Kross, omg. Kayden Kross. So obscenely hot. That sly smile, that turned ankle, that blonde hair and perfect skin… ungh.

Black Orchid at The San Diego Horton Grand Theater

Black Orchid

House Of Pink Boombox

December 6, at The Horton Grand Hotel Theater.
This should be good.

Lilly and House Of Pink Boombox do a weekly show at Gossip Girl on University Avenue but this upcoming Horton Grand event promises to be in a different league.

According to momma Lilly Holliday it’ll be a production worthy of the famous burlesque traditions of yesteryear.

Lilly says, “…it’s our fancy upscale show so the numbers are bigger more theatrical. There are group numbers. Traveling acts. It’s just really exciting to see burlesque the way it’s kinda meant to be seen.”

You can get more info on their Facebook page HERE. Lilly Holliday’s FB page is HERE.

From Lilly's Facebook page, where it was captioned, something like, "Let's play a white girl game. It's called 'Guess If It's Tan Lines or A White Strapped Bikini'.

Cool Cats in the Hot Desert

I came here to work, not play.

But this town offers lots of opportunities for both.

Las Vegas Character & Characters

One thing I’ve noticed here that is pretty courteous is that the ordinary people under-30 that you meet on the street tend to call you “sir” in Las Vegas. Well, except for the strippers. Haha jus’ kidding dewd. I have them call me “Daddy”. Lol jk.

Above is a pic I shot last night of a taxidermied bobcat prop in the Photo Bang Bang studio, the rentable workspace of the heavily bearded Curtis Joe Walker. More on him layer. Cool cat!

Downtown Power Is Where It’s At

Coming out to Vegas this time solely to do some prospecting was so worth it if only for the sheer fact that the hotel I’m staying at (not pictured) has amazingly fast internet. Their wifi is so powerful I’m able to download a dozen gigs per hour. This is making my hosting account migration to cPanel a LOT easier. Thanks, Las Vegas! All the hookers and blow is just gravy!
