Kind Warning

I just want to put this out there that I am not a critic just a girl finding her way in this new world of burlesque. I try to be gentle with my opinions and do really love all of the effort these women put into show productions. Along with all of the male and female performers out there I do respect all of you and look up to each and everyone of you. So please, if you happen to be one of these great people reading my blog and for some reason you don't like what I have written please talk with me so we can settle our differences if there are any. Thank You!!

First intensive class

OMG!!!!! Wednesday was freaking awesome!! I am spending the next three months with some pretty awesome chics. We got to hear why all of the girls are in the class and it was nice to hear so many were there for healing reasons like me. Well and I really wanna perform. And hearing Cha Cha talk about how long she's been in the burlesque scene, how she will help with all body problems, and having good times. I love this lady she is amazing and something other ladies need right now. I do feel that I am a bit of an over achiever right now. I made the decision to do burlesque over a month ago and that was after being an audience member for a year and researching the hell out of it. So on the first day we are looking over some of the homework assignments and I am realizing that I have done many of them all ready. I can't help but feel like this is what I am meant to become so I have grabbed a hold and won't let go.

One thing that Cha Cha Velour was talking about in class were names and I had picked my name after week one with Lou Lou and researching names in burlesque. She kept saying that we have to remember that our names will make our audience think of something. It may be good or it may be bad. While she was talking I began thinking shit maybe I picked the wrong name. But then I looked down at my notebook and saw what she said about my name. I had commented earlier how Darby said my name was 70's porn actress name worthy and Cha Cha said more like 70's bondage porn. It filled me with giddy warmth knowing that this is what I was provoking in people's minds. So after seeing 70's bondage porn written on my papers I decided that this was the ridiculousness  I want people to think about and it goes along with the kind of persona I am going for over the top and kinda funny....well I'm hoping for funny we will see where it goes when it comes to that.

One more thing No one has realized what a chatty Kathy I am. I think Cha Cha may know since I talk her ear off every time we are in the same room. One of the girls asked if I knew Cha Cha for long and outside of the class. I told her that I had seen her perform several times and that is how I know her. really I don't know Cha Cha all that well. She is just really nice and easy to talk too. I can't help but want to suck all the knowledge I can right out of that fabulous brain of hers. So I don't know her I just talk a fucking lot. :P
