Neon, Princess Die, Lola LaBang!, Leon and Stella Who on the clean streets of Portland.
It's been awhile I know, my lovelies...NEON MISSED YOU "BLOG"!! Even if no one reads you I just want you to know that I love posting on you and I really appreciate the way you just exist there in cyberspace all bloggy like.
HEY BLOG!!! Guess what? May's Debauchery was SUPER FUN!!! My dance crew performed a number we recently did in Portland at the "Homo's Got Talent: Dance OFF Competition!!" and we got 3rd place! The Portland queers are AMAZING AND LOVELY!!! Thanks so much for inviting us down there to perform...everyone brought it AWESOMELY!! The picture over there to your left (no, my left) is of the crew post show in Portland. So, yes, we brought our teasing ways back to the home court at Debauchery! last week and had a BLAST performing with the Seattle peeps.
LEON may or may not have been a bit tipsier then usual as we were warming up for his birthday shenanigans that weekend. Let's just say the weekend finished up with us and our pals in a mosh pit somewhere in Tacoma.

Sam and NEON backstage at A Queer for All Seasons this past winter.
Yeah, trolled this idea from Vanity Fair. If you are as big of a magazine whore as I am, you'll know what I'm doing. If you aren't, I totally thought this up and this idea is so great, isn't it??? They should really consider doing something like this in VF.
Come on out in the scandalous Seattle SNOWMAGEDDON and get warmed up at Debauchery! See Leon perform with a few other HAWT dudes tomorrow night, Thursday January 19th starts at 8!!! Did you get your tickets yet? DO IT. I will be your Raffle Puma for the evening. I'm wearing bell bottoms for chisssake, don't miss it!!!
You aspire to be a hand model.
1.You're modelling a pair of Tom Ford sunglasses. You forgot to zip up after running to the bath room right in the middle of the shoot. The photographer hates you.
2. You're a former member of the California Highway Patrol and you just saw an ex-girlfriend enter the room. With your old CHIPs partner.
This arm is so much more life like than the last one.
3. You are pleased with your new robotic arm. The last arm got cut off in a knife fight at Pike Place Market. Unbeknownst to the other people in the room, you are really the somewhat celebrated OK-ish super"hero" The 6oo Dollar Man.
a group of people that understand the importance of STRETCH
Dear Neon + Leon,
How come when I try to do the splits in the routine I'm working on for Debacuhery! my pants always split open? PLEASE HELP!!! Also, you are the 2 HAWTEST people I've ever seen onstage, although when I met you after the show you seemed pretty regular. Super psyched to see you at the January show!
The secret is STRETCH. There is a reason that jeggings became so popular (a little spandex never hurt anyone, well, no one I know). Leggings still run rampant throughout the fashion world (thanks Lilo, ps, I'm still waiting for you to text me Sam Ronson's number), and YES, I wear them like pants get off my case. Back on topic... AS STRIPPERS WE NEED STRETCH!!! so when you are looking for things to wear to do the splits in, or if your act calls for a super high kick, remember to go STRETCHY as HELL or you are gonna be showing the kinds of things that bars have been shut down over and we can't have that. Even though maybe we WANT to have that. Whatever, "THE LAW". Also, you could just take your pants off before you do the splits, make sure those undies is stretchy though, okaaay?
got questions? NEON + LEON have some kind of answer. email firstname.lastname@example.org
My messiah David Bowie gets helped out by, oh, I'd guess about 80 percent Spandex
