Siren St. Sin and Fanny Incognito will be there from El Paso’s breakout troupe Lotus Blossoms Burlesque. Colorado Springs’ Brotherhood of Burlesque (Mr. Valdez, Mustang Monroe and Damien Wonderluv) will add a touch of testosterone to the proceedings. And, of course, plenty of Albuquerque/Santa Fe favoritesincluding Nyree Nix, Mischa Mischief, Doutelle and Mary Jane Monroewill be bumping-and-griding it up for the folks. You’ve got two opportunities to catch the Ecdysiast’s Exclusive show: Friday, Nov. 8, at 8pm and Saturday, Nov. 9, at 8pm. Tickets are $13 and are available through Hold My Ticket. Seating is limited to an intimate 80 audience members per night, so grab your tickets quickly if you want to get up-close and personal. The Cell Theatre is located at 700 1st Street NW.

Smart Girl Self Defense

Helping women tap into their animal brains

You know that little feeling that something isn’t quite right? More than just a funny feeling, it’s actually your brain processing several conscious and unconscious cues, and arriving at the conclusion that something isn’t cool, explained Heather Winkeljohn, co-instructor of the Smart Girl Self Defense course being taught at Wink’s Gym.

Movin’ Ain’t Easy

The art of moving … no, I'm not talking about rhythmic gymnastics or complicated yoga poses, I mean the actual art of switching residences and claiming a new territory as your personal sanctuary. Since, I'm in a perpetual moving limbo (waiting for a roommate to decide whether or not she's leaving the big, bad Burque), I've been searching Craigslist and various classifieds in search of a new home, a fresh start so to speak.

Watching From the Sidelines

A first interaction with Burque police and SWAT

When we wage war, we often do it with ourselves. Whether it be second-guessing critical choices, or diverting our mind's attention to something less intrusive. Yeah, that's vague. But, sometimes a war is waged on us, and the limits of control are bursting at the seams, begging the question: What happens when it happens to me? So, I thought I'd share my first run-in with Albuquerque police and SWAT.

Undocumented and Refurbished

One of the great things about living in Albuquerque is that I have this newfound sense of adventure. Mind you, I usually have more of a self-conscious apprehension of doing anything out of the ordinary. It's borderline obsessive to think about how much I hate to stray from the formula (whatever the formula may be). A mundane example would be how much it bothers me when something interrupts my morning routine i.e. Having to stop for gas on the way to work because I didn't do it the night before. The thought before the action drives me crazy.

Drunk on Sushi

A food review? Not quite. I'm not one for food reviews only because I have an exceptionally limited palate. (When I was little, French fries were my favorite food. No joke.) But, this entry of my weekly foray into the underbelly of Albuquerque is a celebratory one. Because I've found it, people. A little nest of heaven sidled near a car dealership on San Mateo. Yes, I'm sure you've heard of it. Sushi Gen.
