I DJed as MC Escher on 3/21/12 at Dance Dance Party Party (DDPP or D2P2, as I like to call it). Chicago hosts one of the many chapters of the female-only cult phenomenon known as Dance Dance Party Party. No instructors, no fitness goals and there are only three rules in the room – no boys, no booze, and no judgment. It's an hour of booty-busting music twice weekly for ladies only. The lights go down, the music goes up, and like when you used to dance around in your room when you were a kid. ddppchicago.wordpress.com
And hey! SteampunkChicago.com published an updated version of a piece that originated on this blog, which I then revised for my zine. It's a review of a steampunk erotica book called Carnal Machines but it's also a meditation on the difficulty in writing for a specific genre. Huzzah! Thanks, Lords and Ladies of SPC!
