ooops. . .

May 25th, 2006

So a few months ago during a leisurely hike, a friend of mine and Lou’s (my best friend and ex-boyfriend) suggested we put together a comedy fire routine, possibly for the upcoming Xara festival (for which we were already performing with our fire conclave, The Phoenix Projekt). This was very exciting to us, because no one EVER does fire comedy. . . fire performers are generally too busy accumulating all the trappings of would-be rock stars to think outside the Tribal/Sexy/Intense box.

Cut to one month later, and this is what we made (that’s me on the left, with the red dreads, and lou is the bald man on the left). . .featuring the Tubatron stylings of our very own David Silverman, who explains how to make a Tubatron here.

    The Kook Troupe does a drop-dead funny fire dancing parody featuring super-voguing poseurs and miniature fire tools.

    These pix don’t really capture the goodness:

    I knew I’d be able to point to one of my schoolmates some day, and say “I went to college with her!”

    yes, but now you can point and laugh.

    Laugh, and she’d acknowledge the fact.

    I always assumed that it would be to laugh.
