What Now?

Welp, Curlfriends… we did it. We had our CRAZY WEEKEND OF SHOWS, which I say, and I think Les Curls would agree, we had a freakin’ great time with our pals Le Cirque Rouge Burlesque and Wordsprout and SLAM MN’s Erotica Slam (and me solo on Sunday night at the inaugural Kill It! Variety Show). Aside from a few false starts, my breaking of a string before our second Friday show, and discovering on stage that my bridge was damaged (but still functional… if we just take this butter knife and file the notch down a bit) at the first Saturday show, we rocked approximately 1000+ faces off. Thanks for joining us in our little corner of the internet!

So now what?  When’s our next show?  Well, we actually have nothing booked right now (though we’ll probably do something the weekend of Pride, so get yer rainbows ready).  But… we’re not taking a break. I’ve got some new songs coming out the poop shoot (what do you think Elvis was doing when he died? Shitting and writing a song, motherfuckers). We’ll be rehearsing these new songs and getting ready… to record a new album.  Not sure who’s gonna put it out yet, but we’re hoping Stand Up! Records will have us back for another round. Anyway, that’s one announcement: we’re going back into the studio very soon to do #2. Shitting and recording. Two #2s. 

Enough of the blowing of your mind!

Here’s a joke: A Minnesota KTSP TV traffic & entertainment legend, a former police officer-turned-standup comedian, and a dirty comedy musician walk into a bar…

And they start a podcast?

Yeah, I’m doing a podcast with my buddy Chuck Gollop and Minnesota TV news legend Rusty Gatenby, who I didn’t know (not being raised in MN), but my roommate was like, “NO. WAY.” So, that’s cool!

Rusty, Chuck, Tim Mahoney (yes, that one), and Court!

So, we’re doing an entertainment, news, personal stories, etc, podcast called “Twin Cities Hit Show.” Say it fast a few times and see what comes. We get it. We did it on purpose.

Anyway, so Court’s gonna be doing this in the meanwhile and so far, Rusty has played Gay For You every day in a quasi-kidding campaign for it to be the TCHS theme. Hahah. So, check out our most recent episode, seriously, “Gay For You” plays in the first minute.

I’m not gonna post about this all the time, but you can find TCHS on Facebook and Twitter. Though, I’m tweeting a lot on @DirtyCurls about it.  But do stay tuned here! I’ll be sharing rehearsal clips and photos and videos, etc.

Last Minute Valentine’s Day Gift Suggestions

HOLY CHRIST ON A CRACKER.

Valentine’s Day is in a mere TWO DAYS. Do you care? We do because we’re playing two shows that night, but also because most of us are in committed relationships. Anyway, If you ALSO care about Valentine’s Day, but are hung up on what perfect gift to get your perfect someone, never fear… McClean is here.

As a happy single lady who rarely has to purchase presents for a significant other, I know exactly what *I* would want for Valentine’s Day. And if it’s not clear from my choice of rings and rock n roll pose in the above picture, I have exquisite taste. So sit back, relax, light yer pipe and get out your debit card.

1) A MASSAGE, DUH.

And not by you, Dog Bless Ya. A professional. The great news is, you don’t have to spend ninety thousand dollars on a day spa experience. Don’t let me stop you though, if that’s within your financial means because that is a sweet gift, but if you are spending your last $40 on your partner, even a 30 minute massage is an amazing experience. I have two friends who do massage in Minneapolis and are freakin’ fantastic at it: Ellie Hino with Care Therapeutic Massage and Dan Marlow at Marlow’s Massage.  I’ve personally been massaged by both of them and now you have a choice between a lady and a dude because I know some people care about that.

2) A VIBRATOR… DUH

We in the Twin Cities know all about Smitten Kitten. It’s Uptown Minneapolis’ own super-progressive sex store, a la Babeland in NYC. All the toys are made of non-toxic, ethically-produced materials and they have amazingly knowledgable customer service. Well, lucky for the rest of the world, you can find them online and the FIRST vibrator for sale is only $10. That’s amazing! This one is more expensive, but Smitten Kitten has loads of toys, accessories, and tools for all budgets:

I am totally sold on the hot pink.

Don’t forget the batteries.

3. A DATE WITH HER DREAM CELEBRITY, PAUL RUDD.

Why not Joe Biden? Because Paul Rudd.

4) A CLONE OF HERSELF SO THAT ONE CAN DO SHOWS AND THE OTHER GETS TO SEE LIZZO OPEN FOR SLEATER-KINNEY AT FIRST AVE

Yes, fine, I understand that getting a date with Paul Rudd is going to be impossible, but if all else fails and you find yourself at a CVS with no other options but giant white teddy bears… Swipes Lovin’ Wipes. I’m for serious:

I haven’t used mine yet because I forget about them, but I’ve heard they work really well.

Well, and maybe at least a flower and a Snickers bar.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Curlfriends! It’s Anna’s birthday today! SHE IS 30 YEARS OLD!!!!!!!!!! Wish her a very happy one in the comments if ya want!
