Does anyone care if burlesque performances clash?

johnboy 17 December 2008 29

CityNew is in a tizz about clashing burlesque performances next February while Canberra’s opaquely named festival season plays out.

The article carries no byline but does have this disclaimer:

    “Festival Fringe director Jorian Gardner is also the “CityNews” arts editor and had no part in the preparation of this story.”

Anyone want to have a stab at explaining this bit of strangeness?

Oh, don’t mind Bettie! She obviously wandered over from Canberra Goss and got lost ….

*chuckle*

I don’t usually post on this site for obvious reasons, however I really do think it needs to be brought to the attention of “Bettie” – that a) I have no need to defend my sexuality but if you take such an interst it shows how pethietic life is for you….b) whrther I date someone from from a show is neither here nor there – for the record I am actually not (and niether am I gay!)…and c) there was a HUGE byline at the top of the CityNews article from “Megan Haggan” another journalist at CityNews – I had nothing to do with the story at all. You need to look closer next time before you shoot your mouth off.

They get ‘better’ until they take their clothes off.

“Old ones” are like fine wines – we get better.

M’kay, Bettie?

Bettie 10:48 am 19 Dec 08

You were right to think he was gay. She is the old one. Double ew.

And there I was thinking Jorian had to be gay but there you go.

Jorian is dating one of the main Burlesque performers of ‘A Stacked Deck’?

BWHAAHAAAHAA!!1! Gold!

Bettie 6:54 pm 18 Dec 08

Totally agreed. I read the article today and couldn’t believe how emotional the writing was, like wow, one would think the Street Theatre show was a complimenting addition? Seems like a pretty obvious stab for exposure for our local Burlesque troop in ‘A stacked Deck,’ because the big boys from outa town are performing at the Street Theatre. Threatened anyone?

Sense of it all was made, when I realised Jorian is dating one of the main Burlesque performers of ‘A stacked deck.’ Emotional writing on a non-topic that only you care about?

NO WONDER THERE WAS NO BY LINE! Jorian you’re a tool.

Perhaps they could have a burlesque dance off in Garema Place.

What sort of name is ‘Jorian’ anyway? He sounds like Superman’s uncle.

This comment has made my morning.

As opposed to Sinsations which is oozing with class?

A sloppy argument. Didn’t your mother teach you that two wrongs don’t make a right?

Burlesque = fat girls with tatts and piercings in nasty lingerie.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!

Clearly you’ve never seen Min Mae or Yasmin Element, 2 stunning women and amazing performers, not just in burlesque but in general…

When I hear the word “burlesque” I keep thinking of those unfortunae Goth girls that sparked such debate here six months or so ago. Tatts, piercings, glasses, weight problems… glamourous it ain’t!

Honestly, is it necessary to be so nasty? Didn’t you get in trouble last time?

Felix the Cat 10:23 pm 17 Dec 08

That should be “are fat” not “ate fat”, unfortunate slip of the keyboard there…

Felix the Cat 10:22 pm 17 Dec 08

Not all burlesque girls ate fat with piercings and tatts, there was a rather nice normal sized girl that didn’t appear to have tatts or abnormal piercings that was on one of those talent shows a while back. Can’t recall the name of the program, Australia’s Got Talent maybe – I think Red Symons was one of the hosts. Not sure of the name of the girl either. In her act she started off looking all prim and proper and sweet and innocent with the librarian glasses and then she stripped off (to her corset, not naked…unfortunately!) and showed her ‘bad girl’ side.

You can’t even use City News as toilet paper because the paper it’s printed on is too shiny: and there’d be nothing worse than smearing a piece of Jorian all over your buttocks.

flase use of the word News.

No need to correct spelling. A mix of blase and false is perhaps more descriptive than you first realised.

R. Slicker 5:10 pm 17 Dec 08

Sorry, false.

R. Slicker 5:10 pm 17 Dec 08

And they call it CityNews? Perhaps we should call in the Trade Practices Commission to investigate the flase use of the word News.
