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...

Masquerade

Curious how old obsessions can suddenly resurface... I was recently scouring my thoroughly disorganised CD collection to find something I had not listened to in a while to help me through my shift. Work, alas, continues to be demoralising, that warehouse environment being typically loud, laddish, sweary, and mansplainy, so I tend to rely on... Continue Reading →

Eleanor the Insufferable

I have indeed finally chosen my legendary heroine name, in recognition of the fact that I can barely shut up about my "condition" these days for five minutes at a time, and people are getting heartily sick of it. My actual coming out made no splash whatsoever, but my refusal to change the bloody record... Continue Reading →
