Rather, I’m blind. Rather, I can see every atom spinning that sticks you together. I can, rather, see your lies clearest. I’d rather not see lies.
But there they are. Innocent lies. Private lives. Posessive truth. Like there’s a limited amount. Also, like I’m blind. But you know as well as I do I can read your mind.
Air and Fire are mine me on my side. Bi-polar opposites sign peace treaties under my council. I can fucking hear your kind voice and I know goddamn well these soft words be lies. Do you know you’re lying? Are you aware you’re not fooling at least one of us?
The first time I played half man/half woman was in Chicago theatre’s production of Elephant Man when I was a mere 18. I feel like I know a little bit more about both genders at this point in life.

Classic cars, pole dance and pinup styling – everything I love in one live event!
You all know I’ve been a career performer for the past 25 years. And I do it all. About three years ago I started pole dancing and fell in love! It’s ATHLETICALLY DIFFICULT, it’s BREATHTAKING, it’s EXOTIC. So I pitched it for performance, as I do with any skill I learn anew and I ended up being really frustrated placing it. Venues and clients didn’t seem to value it as they do other aerial arts, circus arts, burlesque or dance. Pole was next to impossible to get a professional rate for, even though it’s one of the most difficult skill sets I practice! So I decided to produce a live show myself. Where I can give pole dancers the stage, as they deserve, with a ticket-purchasing audience in a classy venue.
But of course I can’t stop at a show – this must be an EVENT! Something unique which – you guessed it – combines everything I love. So the evening starts with a FREE classic car cruise-in, moves inside for pinup photo shoots, vintage styling and nostalgia films and culminates in a sassy, hilarious, spectacular pole show with burlesque sensibilities!
Dollhouse Entertainment and I are co-producing and our debut is almost here! Platinum Stages has sponsored a 16′ competition height pole installed at The Federal Bar, NoHo. We are raising funds to cover pre-production costs like prop building, costumes, marketing and rehearsal space now. Please support our vision and check out what we’re up to at IndieGoGo. And purchase tickets to our Nov 8th debut to see for yourself what all the vintage fun is!
Our horror film Death Factory announced that we’ll be known by the original name internationally and The Butchers domestically. You know what that means? That’s right, we have foreign and domestic distribution! Uncork’d acquired rights to distribute our all-star horror flick and it will be available on DVD and VOD Nov 11, 2014. And oh, it’s BEAUTIFUL. Beautiful, beautiful horror. You know my dad was born on Halloween and still today I see the beauty in the fabricated macabre. And the horror in fabricated life. Please enjoy clips of my acting work as STAR in The Butchers (aka Death Factory):
I was pissed cause I thought I’d gotten a ticket. But when I picked it up, it read “I’m a director. I want to use your car in a music video. Call me! JB Ghuman”.
It’s all so very Hollywood.
I’m an actress and I’m used to being on set for my career, but on the day, I showed up, reversed my car into a tight, uphill warehouse (with no mirrors, PS, since my car’s lines are shaved) and babysat the elegant, purple beast while director, JB Ghuman, San Francisco recording artists Double Duchess, B.A.D. Dance Crew, Future People and Kelly Osbourne made my classic car the feature of their visual party.
I became a proud Car Mom in one afternoon.
And really, you DO have to babysit your car on film/tv sets. Because there’s this strange thing EVERYONE (who doesn’t own a classic car) wants to do immediately upon camera roll – get on the hood. People, people, people …
Here’s JB Ghuman directing Kelly Osbourne in front of the Grape Space Coaster:
