Best anecdote about communities, ever?!?

On Friday, I was in L.A. at a special screening of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch", featuring an appearance by John Cameron Mitchell, the star/director/writer of Hedwig. There were others involved with Hedwig also at the show, including Mike Schmidt, the founder of Squeezebox, the club where Hedwig got its start.

The best part of the night? When Mike Schmidt said "Great things get their start in small, intimate spaces," John Cameron Mitchell grabbed the seat of his leather pants and spread his asscheeks, leering at the audience with a saucy "come hither" expression on his face. Such is community.

The night featured a full cast accompanying the movie, a la Rocky Horror. They were surprisingly good, in the same way that most Rocky Horror casts aren't.

So, do you have any amusing stories about communities, LiveJournal, or the Internet to share?!

***Coff, choke!***

...and that is why, although I live an "alternative lifestyle", am not a public exhibitionist.

That was what fundamentally didn't work for me at the L.A. LJ Bash. What is the point of licking whipped cream off of someone's anatomy if you can't bring them to orgasm anyway? Under the circumstances, I preferred stimulating conversation.

If I want to see women kissing each other, I can go to bi coffee... which I am missing out on tonight, unfortunately, as Kirsten is feeling under the weather and needs tea and love. I'm hoping she didn't have bad sushi.

Meanwhile, I'm working on a deadline. Arrgh. I have too much to do before flying out to Atlanta on Thursday morning. Way, way too much to do! That, of course, explains why I am writing this post. Procrastination will get me nowhere.

Hm. Queer as Folk is on in 30 minutes, too...
