It was sweet of MeeMaw to send that big bag of Good & Plenty candies, but who knew I'd end up popping them like...candy. I may be a little bouncier than normal today. Just don't make any sudden moves and everyone should be ok.

It's Wednesday, meaning the post-weekend rest period--which followed the weekend wind down--is officially over and it's time to get the pre-weekend festivities underway. But there's a big question. Not where to go or who what to do, but what to wear: blue silk dress or top hat and tails?

I suppose that depends on the company, though. So, what's everyone up to? Anyone have any plans, and if not, anyone want to make plans? I'm flexible. *rim shot*

*bursts in*

Luca is going to be my wife!

The event of the year, my darlings. We're inviting half of Vodeville. I trust you to come and drink our bevvies and cluck your tongues over the union of the demonic duo and most of all, talk about how fantabulous our clothes are. Raise your arse, er, glass!

It's always been the case that Luca has my heart. (Don't ask about other parts, that's rude.) Harlequins love Orchids.

Dear me, I'm plastered. *hic*

I make pictures. Paint and celluloid, one hundred percent unnatural. The surrealists are a tight knit group of elitests and I was too elitest for them. They showed me the door, but I left through the window.

All of it makes perfect sense if you skew the grids of perception to a morphic state. Straight lines are only good for cutting bank notes.

Nobody ever smiles into my lens, that's the difference. Unless of course their eyes are supernovas.

Got myself hooked up, sweethearts. MorningGloria22 on AIM. Drop me a line sometime and don't be shy.

I don't think we've been properly introduced, though I've met a lot of you before. The nature of these go around the room introductions has always been great to me. You see a lot of nervous people saying a little too much or not enough, and either way, they say more about themselves than they might think. Of course, I was trained to spot that kind of non-verbal feeling and to alter my own to use silences to communicate on film...

I should move on. I'm getting the eye from the cats in the back.

I'm Hugo London. You may have seen me on the big screen if that's your kick. My interests include acting, acting, acting and acting. I also find time to drink, smoke cigars and ... things... and speed around the countryside in my automobile. I haunt the Black Orchid whenever possible and try to stay out of that roped off section where all the moneybags dwell. I don't often succeed, but I'm not as sequestered as a lot of my colleagues. Or so I like to tell myself.

Evening, all [08 Sep 2003|01:15pm]

Mama once told me I would never be a debutante if I didn't grow out of my tomboy ways, and she was right! I never did either of those two things.

Today, I hit things for a living. I mean I'm girl drummer, which is a rare enough sight in and of itself, but I'm one of the best drummers around. That's my own humble opinion, of course. You can find me swattin' the skins in that cool combo, the Vodeville Creepers.

Hey cats and kittens. Liam Flynn here, everybody calls me Flynn. Or worse, Shadowman on account of my quiet stepping. Or something like that. I pound the keys at the Orchid with the Vodeville Creepers and uh... got a few side hobbies, you know how it is.

See you all around, I guess.

New York is a fury. She shines and blushes like the fruit of temptation, but bite into her flesh and she bites back. Not like a lover, but like a cornered animal. I love her, but she didn't love me back.

Vodeville is a siren calling through the mists of the ocean, removing the need for a jellied lens to soften her smoky gaze. She called and I answered. Pen poised, I'm ready for her to fill me with her stories.

And then there's that whole earning a living lark. I guess we'll see.

[AIM as soon as I can thinka somethin! Hello.]

Hiya kids [06 Sep 2003|05:37pm]

Took awhile to put my face on, but here I am. My name is Evelin Turner, but you can just call me Evie.

I run things over at stiller_haus, that is when I'm not painting and trying to keep the gin flowing at impromptu house meetings. See me if you're checking in, checking your mail, or just checking up on things.

[AIM Name: EnchantedEvie. Also, I did a stupid thing and accidentally removed anyone who had me listed as a friend. Meep! So, please add me back.]

Hello, hello, sweethearts and others...

You may recognize my voice from the airwaves--that's me, Gloria from MorningGlory Chat, where I tell everyone with a new-fangled radio receiver about what the hippest socialites were seen doing the night before.

But I'm sooo much more than a pretty alto, sugar.

Ciao. Mi chiamo Luca.

My metier is yet undefined. I paint, I write, I dance naked in the rain. That's where Daddy's money pays off. Apart from my role as the mad little princess in my father's realm, I play many and none. Somewhere in between I'm myself, you'll never know who hit you.

However I'm no excess baggage, in fact I own the_harlequin your friendly neighbourhood cafe. Making the rounds? Contact me. [ s/n LuringLuca ]

I'm doing the Houdini.

What's shakin? I'm Ingrid. I'm an actress, but I ain't hincty like a lot of these celluloid shivas. I latched on to the Orchid scene pretty recently, but it's my favorite haunt. New York got nothing on Vodeville.

If you feel the need to find mischief, get on the horn and give me a shout. [AIM: Insolent Ingrid]

Hello my darlings, I'm Zelig. I own the_blackorchid where we get up to absolutely no good. The drinks are pure, the dancers are friendly and the band is, how you say, smokin'. And so is the MC. (Psst, that's me.)

You're welcome to join us. If you want to come over and learn the password for the doorman, I'll whisper it to you. I'm told that it's worth the trouble.

[Comment so I can add you, no secret knock required. AIM is MagnificentZelig]

Two righteous queens took the stage so far. Sharp as a tack. So let me just sound off here myself.

I'm Cael Edgar, most call me Eddie. I pull strings for a three piece combo called the Vodeville Creepers. We back up, mostly. Crooners, belters, hoofers, you name it. Any excuse to ride it righteous.

We play the Orchid three nights a week and if it were up to me, we'd play it every night.

So what's your story?

Just little old me... [05 Sep 2003|04:52pm]

[ mood | solid ]

Hey there queens and jacks...

This is Roxie here, eighteen years of age, fresh out of a stale little town in Nowhereville with a hot passion for dance. I'm lookin' to tear up the main kick at the Black Orchid one of these days. I hope you'd like to come see me, and if not, I'm going to make you want to. I love my ladies and I love my boys even more.

Contrary to popular belief, I don't bite. If you'd like to cop a chat with me, my number's in the directory. I'd love to meet you. [Roxie Delightful's the name on AIM]

Greetings gals and gates! [05 Sep 2003|10:29am]

[ mood | kopasetic ]

I guess I'll get this clambake started and introduce myself then.

Sabrina Quinn here, a canary from that oh-so windy city of Chicago. Maybe you've heard of me, maybe you haven't.

I've been in Vodeville for a few years now, just singing for my supper. If you've been to the Black Orchid, perhaps you've caught me crooning night and day about getting ten cents a dance in stormy weather. Sometimes I'll just see what the boys in the back room will have. I've also been known to jump in with the band (hush your mouth) to help roll out the barrel or do the Carioca. And if anyone needs a dance partner, I can do a mean lindy hop.

If you'd like to reach me, just call the club and leave a message for [AIM s/n] shimshamsadie.

This is where you make your introductions. Think of it as a social audition.
