In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Burlesque Benefit Tonight

Michael Blowhard writes:

Dear Blowhards --

A reminder that a must-see burlesque benefit is being thrown tonight in Williamsburg. A good cause. Saucy performers. Raffles and prizes, including some by 2Blowhards' very own "Confessions of a Naked Model" correspondent Molly Crabapple.

The details:

Date: Thursday evening, Sept. 8
Time: 10 pm
Place: The Lucky Cat Lounge in Williamsburg
245 Grand St. (Between Driggs and Roebling)
Price: Cheap, cheap, cheap!

Boobies and buttskis; fans and boas; g-strings and tassles; and lots of po-mo attitude. Why resist temptation?

I can't think of a single good thing to say about the MPAA rating system, but it could well be that the creation of the PG-13 rating is the worst thing that ever happened to it. Before it came along film makers either had to go for the adults or go for the kids. Now they go for the wishy-washy middle, which really doesn't suit either age range. Greed will trump quality every time. And let's also blame the rise of right wing religious fanatics who now have both the president and the majority of the dominant political party in their pocket.
