Does anyone care if burlesque performances clash?

By 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 ….

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?

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’?

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.
