Burlesque Showreel, Act 2

The second effort in my ongoing project to while away the quarantine by filming a showreel of my burlesque solos. I finally accede to popular pressure and choreograph a vampire routine, with homage to a certain classic 1980s film. This is not quite the debut I wanted for this act, but it is what it...

Burlesque Showreel, Act 1

With nothing else to do burlesque-wise, I've decided to try putting together a showreel of my solo acts for hopefully freer times, and I'm starting with my debut act. This is the revamped version of "Phantom of the Opera / Born this Way" with new costume and revised choreography. Not exactly a live performance experience,... Continue Reading →

Steamboat Ellie

It took a little time (bearing in mind I wrote the thing back in 2015), but with huge thanks to the wonderful Megan Pritchard (AKA fellow burlesque dancer Flossie Smalls) for her awesome cover design, my steampunk fantasy novel is at last good to go... ************ The vengeful, disfigured Gloriana - rebel fay queen and...

At any rate, for those of us who are trans, gay or bi, disabled and /... Continue Reading →

Robot Positivity

I take a lot of inspiration from a friend of mine who is a punk musician with a taste for the extreme, and always says he doesn't care whether he gets a very good reaction or a scathingly negative one - the worst thing would be to be ignored. Based on that, I am certainly... Continue Reading →

Pretty Gems and Paranoid Androids

My writing has really taken a back seat to my burlesque for over a year now, since my last Gothic dabbling in the world of fanfic. However, being a big fan of "Steven Universe", I've been toying with the idea of doing some sort of crossover fiction with the Crystal Gems for some time now,... Continue Reading →

Annual Nerdfest Time …

It's that time of year again: the C64 Shoot-'Em-Up-Construction-Kit (SEUCK) game-designing contest, hosted by Richard Bayliss of The New Dimension, is upon us again and now very near to being in its tenth year, in which duration yours truly has won it a grand total of once. Since that taste of victory was last year,... Continue Reading →
