Stripped

This dance if from a Russian ... with love

January 25th, 2011

When people guess my heritage, it's usual somewhere in Eastern Europe. So why fight it?

  • I worked on Monday for many reasons, mostly because of a bad weekend of soul-searching.

  • I fidgeted with my bottoms. I re-tied my top. I tried to impress during this rare Las Vegas audition.

  • It would have been good to turn to B, but he hates to be reminded that my work is dirty and illegal. Disappointment all around.

  • Black Bird is a picky eater and is not drinking, but her mom -- she eats everything.

  • The reservation doesn't allow non-natives, but one of us was a card-carrying American Indian with health-care needs.

  • Before the pregnancy, we used to be great drinking buddies. Maybe it was because of her heritage?

  • A breakup with B is necessary. Why stay with someone who doesn't appreciate passion and loyalty?

  • "Space" gave way to "camping trip" after an unexpected tryst with "B" in a motel room.

  • My head spinning, I probed further for explanation as to what I'd stumbled on. The outcome was not as planned.

  • In Alaska, there is no 3-for-$100 lap dance area. There are only $20. And, we go nude. Totally.

  • I had to explain jokes to a curious kid, and eventually dozed off. It's just as well.

  • The Broadway hit kicked off its first national tour on the Reynolds Hall stage.

  • Ryan Adams is a focused, well-crafted collection of rock ’n’ roll.

  • The three-act comedy considers a late-19th century partnership between two women that may or may not be sexual.

  • From LGBT community events to nightlife soirees and pool parties, where to show your pride all weekend long.

  • Vivian Martian, Gina Alverson and Kris Krainock use words to create unexpected works.

  • The final season dumps us square in the middle of the Depression.

  • Something is obviously not right at Beckett Warner's new school.

  • Hassan Hamilton is more than just big—he's a colossus.

  • The brotherhood bond of Scott and Seth Avett—musically and personally—was as apparent as ever. Eat your heart out, Donny and Marie.

  • From hellacious scheduling to road essentials, Johnson and Meader talk all about tour.

  • Plant's restraint makes this one of his most passionate works.

  • As if Vegas wasn't kinky enough already ...

  • Essman brings her routine to Vegas on September 6 as part of Venetian's Lipshtick series.

  • Choose your battles carefully, Aquarius.

  • From big-name DJs to some awesome live music picks, how to get your party on this LDW.

  • The Hunger Games returns -- and so does Dumb and Dumber.

  • From the attempted assassination of Bob Marley to post-Superstorm Sandy narratives, great reads to keep on your bedside table.
