Kinky Curiosities Party February 13th!
Leather and Lace
Kinky Curiosities is more than just a reveal and a show, we're also hosting community tables and we have a contingent from the Leather community!
New Mexico has a long history of titleholders to represent the Leather community, and one of our current titles is Corazon Leather, which happens annually at the Leather Fiesta conference. This year, Catherine and Jinx the Lynx are serving as Ms Corazon Leather 2016! Be sure to stop by and say hello. They'll be hosting a table where they can answer questions, and they'll have tickets to upcoming events and wares to delight you. They're also sharing space with Bootblack Dani, who will be available to shine your shoes, boots, leather corsets and more —bring money to tip the performers and your bootblack!
Catherine has been an enthusiastic member of the New Mexico community volunteering at various events and using her skills as a pole dancer to raise money for various causes for several years. Early in 2016 she started Twizted Wax Works and began producing wax play candles in a variety of intensities, she applies her familiarity with wax play to teach popular hands-on as well as purely informational classes. In the coming year, Catherine is looking forward to growing her business and expanding on her knowledge of all things kinky as she travels the country while serving as Ms. Corazon Leather 2016.
Jinx the Lynx has been playing, working and volunteering in the New Mexico community for years. She gives most of her time to a local non-profit Bully-type dog breed advocacy group that raises money for rescues and shelters in need across the state. She has used her silver tongue to talk money out of people's wallets and purses for various fundraisers in the kinky and vanilla community over the years. When not volunteering, she can be found reading and rescuing animals. Jinx teaches various classes and lectures on topics both kinky and vanilla. She is the current stand-in facilitator of education at the Wet Munch and a First Aid/CPR/AED instructor. Her favorite thing is bloodsport, but don't worry, she's not hunting Monday. In the coming year, Jinx wishes to raise money to better her local community by providing funds for non-profit groups and she plans to continue to serve as Ms. Corazon Leather 2016 for the rest of her life.
New Mexico is also home to the Albuquerque Leather Daddys, a local group of Leather enthusiasts who host a monthly Gear Night the first Saturday of every month at Sidewinders Bar. What's Gear Night? It's a theme night for you to wear your favorite fetish-wear, have a few drinks amid other hot folks, maybe watch some demos (I tied some decorative bondage on a very handsome muscle bear after the Jock Strap Contest which was, in fact, a bunch of hot people on stage stripping down to their jocks while the crowd went crazy), get your boots shined and dance to an eclectic mix from the resident (award winning) DJ. Every year they do fundraisers for folks like Casa Q (a great local charity) and usually enjoy a ruckus entry in the Albuquerque Pride Parade. One of the founders of the Albuquerque Leather Daddys was the first Rio Grande Leather Titleholder with yours truly back in 2004, and we still enjoy working together. The Daddys will be hosting a table and offering us two live kink demos at Kinky Curiosities.
Oh what wonders await you next Monday! Buy your tickets now, invite your friends, get yourself a date or three. We'll be announcing drink specials and the rest of our cast and crew of curiosities this week, so stay tuned. RSVP on Facebook, on Fetlife (for those already in the know.) Cameras and phones are allowed at the event so feel free to Tweet and post to Instagram with the hashtag #AlibiFetishEvents.
Dryv into my Heart
Jack Dishel (former frontman of the band Stipplicon, lead guitar for The Moldy Peaches, tenor guitarist for Little Joy, and frontman/onlyman of Only Son) just started a new YouTube series called :DRYVRS. The first episode features Macaulay Culkin as the adult version of his most well-known role, Kevin McCallister from the Home Alone series. The show follows Dishel as a regular car service passenger and his encounters with unusual drivers.
In this episode titled Just Me In The House By Myself, Culkin plays a married, grown-up version of Kevin McCallister who doesn’t know how to drive. His wife, who is normally a personal driver, did too much coke the previous night so McCallister is forced to cover for her. After arriving at the destination, Dishel and McCallister are robbed at gun-point, which brings back memories of attempted assailants and burglars for McCallister.
The show is comical and modern. Presented on Youtube, it features the entirely current concept of hiring a personal driver for an "Average Joe" with a smartphone and the weirdness that surrounds that situation. The shots change pace quickly when McCallister gets riled up, so it shows what a frenzy he’s in in comparison to Dishel, whose shots reflect him as composed and calm. It’s about 5 minutes long and definitely worth a watch.
Straight from Santaland
Ah, the holiday season. A time for love, sharing, and generosity towards our fellow man. Alas, it is really a season of the blatant and rather terrifying corporate takeover of the once happy holidays, when mankind turns into a creature of cutthroat consumerism, who is generally cold and much poorer than he'd like to be.
The Santaland Diaries show you this in bulk; these creatures are all you see as a department store elf. David Sedaris chronicles the story of a slacker turned into Santa's little helper, the play's been given great reviews by all the good New York people: the NY Times, Newsday and The New Yorker.
It's now or never, folks, the show plays weekend only. Buy your tickets for only $10 at the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway Blvd SE). Curtain is at 8pm on the Friday, Dec. 18 and Saturday, Dec. 19 Check out our Facebook for a chance to win two free tickets to the show.
