I have been experiencing anxiety all day, caused in part by the meanness of my last post, and yet Allen Ginsberg said “First Thought, Best Thought” and there is a man I must honor. So no deletions.

Let’s talk about Itty Bitty. This film was fun. I wrote about 1,000 notes but I will spare you another reprint. In short: Daniela Sea is really hot, the soundtrack was great, I do love Le Tigre. You could tell that this film was very indy, it looked low-budget, nowhere near as polished as Jamie Babbit’s acclaimed feature, But I’m a Cheerleader. However the fact that it was produced by Power-Up and actually depicted culture jamming and Direct Action, despite the fact that the premise was a bit “fanciful,” pretty much makes it a winner in my book. Melonie Diaz is a really fresh young actor, big up to her, and thank you Itty for the mostly positive portrayal of a trans person. Check out the trailer.

As for the party, it looked like a snatch of fun. I can’t really say, because I couldn’t stay long. Before the party, I ate at Cookshop. It was overpriced and not amazing, yet super packed. Things that make you go hmmm. The bread sticks were good?

The exciting place, which does make the GL is NU YU day spa. If you ever really need a massage, in the Clinton Hill area, hit up Courtney, Jules or one of the other lovely staff members. Especially now, as it’s Spa Week and they along with many others across the country, are offering discounts.

Literary Death Match- Deadlines

Hello Friends,

Although hanging out in cafe’s is joyful, deadlines are not. I am down to the wire on another one and feeling the burn. I also put my back out- what the? So in honor of Spa Week, I am taking my broke self on down to the Brand Nu Day Spa, I will be sure to report back on it’s level of goodness.

After I stop procrastinating and manifest some genius, (what what!) I will get my back back in gear, I hope, than journey on over to the Kitchen for A Literary Death Match/ Release of Opium Magazine (secret blog fans, stalk me I’m yours!)

This is how I previewed it in Flavorpill:

Competitive-reading series Literary Death Match requires authors to step out from behind their writing desks and show some performance chops. The contestants this time around are Katherine Taylor from the Vermin on the Mount reading series, Thomas Hopkins from L magazine’s Annual Literary Upstart, Dennis DiClaudio of Guerilla Lit, and Thaddeus Rutkowski from Poetry vs. Comedy. Celebrity guests (Ben Greenman from The New Yorker is on hand) judge the participants on literary merit, performance, and various intangibles. more

I will let you know afterwards how it really was. I will also have a report back on the ITTY BITTY TITTY COMMITTEE DVD launch party which I previewed in GO. Again, stalkers are welcome x See you soon.
