At Last!!!! The long-awaited yearning for the first issue of WHORE! MAGAZINE will be sated. Don't know what Whore! magazine is? Well it is a quarterly print women's culture publication exploring who women really are as opposed to what they are expected to be. So come and join us for a night of celebration, performance, and the first issue ready to be put in your hot hands. In honor of our Aesthetic and that marvelous explosion of art, sex, fashion and wildness that was the 1920's Red Light District of Paris the theme is "Noir Montmarte". Think sheer black stockings and wicked red shoes. Absinthe and CanCan dancers. Anais Nin and and Kiki Montparnasse. We will be living it high and we want you to come slink around with us!

fundraising efforts for cleo the pup ( jumped out a window & has expensive $$ medical care)+ kickstarter for new albums from henri rabbit & lindsay clark:

henri rabbit (in washington recording a new album):
deadline is july 20th

lindsay clark (in portland, oregon recording a new album):
deadline is july 14th

cleo the pup, needs $$ for medical care: 
From Samaki (of Fuzzpod), please donate at !

Last Friday my dog Cleo decided to test the laws of gravity – not once but twice – and jump out of our 2-story apartment window. After a vet visit and two ER visits Ms. Cleo had to have bladder surgery yesterday and is still at the hospital. She is stable considering all that she’s been through. Hopefully she will make progress from drinking to eating and being able to keep food down today.

She’s a strong, spunky pup and we can't wait till she can come home!

Andy and I made a blog for her and our fund raising efforts to cover what we’ve spent in only the last few days for her care. Our goal is 7k. Please repost our link to folks to donate and/or pass our URL to any and all friends, animal supporters, crazy cat ladies, angel investors etc.

AND, we're having a karaoke fundraiser 6/26 at the Dovre club. There's a tab on the webpage about it.
