This Is About.

It's a digital age, man. So to you we present our virtual talk show of Nonsense: The Silly. The Beautiful. The True. In our own words or those quoted by others. With our own art or that created by others. We will laugh. We will smile. We will entertain you all the while. So grab a drink, come in and let's chat. We'd like to meet you, your mama, and your hot cousin Fred.


Glamour & Glitter, Fashion & Fame!

Got five minutes to spare and not a clue in the air what to wear for the big and scary fright night tonight?

We think we might just go as Jem. Bitch has style, has grace (hello she was wearing top hats long before the Dior or Commes Des Garcons shows). Throw on a pink wig, some glitter on our face. Some pink star-shaped earrings and the token backup singin' girlfriends. A giant pink microphone and a flashy silver belt. We'll be on our way to battle the Misfits with our Rio, our handsome hispanic beau in tow. Truly outrageous!

So, Happy Halloween to all you hobos, ghosts, and gypsies. Fairies, snails, and butterflies. Devils, angels, and pumpkin pies. Oh, and give thanks to the pumpkin pie today, while you're at it. We think it is the best invention since Al Gore invented the internet. And if you are a lamesy lame-o tonight, be sure to celebrate with Chuck Brown and the forever favorite 'It's the Great Pumpkin' movie. What a cliggity rumtastic boombastic classic y'all.

Get down, get down. It's Halloween all around town!

OMG. We do NOT show enough Gem love on our show. She is the moon, the sun, the stars to me on some days. Great post Fran.

I believe the term is "truly" outrageous not "simply". C'mon ragers get it right :)
