pennyredful: The OP is so off re: clubs that I have to ask, are you a stripper? Because it’s not like guys are whipping their dicks out and expecting blow jobs or surprise fingering most strippers, it’s that we are losing money to extras girls. Wow, I wish that was actually true at some places I work, where guys actually will pull their dicks out or try to stick their fingers in you. Which...
Here is where this article that takes John Roderick (who cares) and Kurt Vile (leave him alone) to task for their lack of respect for punk ideals—while willfully ignoring outspoken activist artists—lost me: “(they’re pretty much Neil Young and The Eagles to my ears—sorry, indie fans)” Some might argue that “punk” is not interchangeable with “rock and roll,” and that that’s why people...

matthewbarnhart: (with apologies to my dear friend, Thor Harris.) Another SXSW is coming to a close, and with it comes the usual trickle of bands complaining about their experience. No soundchecks, short sets, gruff and/or incompetent venue staff, terrible traffic, no parking, “it’s not about the music”, etc…
so far my favorite SXSW rant by an old-school...
from the FB wall of Rich Malley, formerly of the Horsies/Happy Family: To the knucklehead out-of-towner who smacked me on the head for (perceived) excessive skanking at The Specials: OK, first of all, I want to point out that I’m older and probably way cooler than your daddy. Probably not all that relevant, but somehow seems important to me right now. You know what? I’m sorry I bumped into you...

This is a Storified series of Twitter jokes that I couldn’t help encouraging after @Bro_Pair decided to report on phone splicers in the style of tragic prostitute profiles. For someone who is not a sex worker (to the best of my knowledge) he nails the tropes to the wall. read more from him
if you were me tonight
Late at night you would have walked out of a bar on a country road under a cold clear night sky broken by the barest streaks of clouds and noticed how incredibly bright it was, so much brighter than other nights you’d been outside under winter stars. Turning around in every direction, you’d have seen mountains completely surrounding your field of vision, mountains covered in fresh snow...

marginalutilite: Audacia Ray sent me a review copy of the Red Umbrella Project’s _Cooking In Heels_, a memoir cookbook Ceyenne Doroshow was inspired to write while serving prison time for a prostitution conviction. I’d really like a trans sex worker to review it rather than just have me as a cis sex worker come at it from my limited perspective. Plus, I don’t know anything about cooking. So,...

This is for the twenty or so people who take great joy in Chris Jones’s sporadic shit-losing. If that sentence means nothing to you, I beg you to move along. Chris Jones is a magazine writer. He’s a successful magazine writer, which requires focus, ambition, hustle, and not a little self-promotion in these times of shrinking pagecounts and shuttered doors. He is also a good writer. He...
lowest life form in the strip club →
“…what is uncommon is the aura of loneliness that surrounds the time wasters. They are like the Groke in Tove Jansson’s Moomintroll books: the pure intensity of their loneliness could kill flowers.” Loving this evisceration of the lowest life form in the strip club, the non-spending regular.

michaelrobbinspoet: So Yahoo!

Adopt a wax cylinder →
I love this. What a great (deductible!) way to give presents. It costs the library $60 to preserve a single cylinder, including rehousing, cataloging, and digitizeing it for public access. We currently have a backlog of over 1,000 cylinders that are not yet digitized. In 2010 a grant from the GRAMMY Foundation® supported the digitization of over 1,000 cylinders, but there are still hundreds...
The practice of carrying concealed deadly weapons marks the unmanly spirit and cowardice of those who indulge in it, or points to radical defects in the machinery of justice. It is a fruitful source of crime, to effectually check which the efforts of every law-abiding citizen and officer must be blended, and the laws to encourage and support them in the work should be made in all respects...
For his report, McMorris spoke with plenty of strippers, including one named...– it does? Ugh. This MediaBistro interview with the tool of the Center for American Freedom journalist who wrote about DC-area dancer lawsuits for the Free Beacon is awful stuff. And why are they covering stories from the house organ of a Koch-bankrolled conservative think tank?

Jennifer Lawrence is totally talking about Atlanta’s AWESOME Clermont Lounge in this clip from Leno, where she insults the “geriatric strippers” and pretty much has the reaction of an Emory coed to the place. I cannot believe she complains about “Little Bo Peep.” I have seen her dance and she definitely deserves a bigger tip.

For about two years I have been including imprecatory prayers in our church services and Bible studies at Holy Grounds Coffee House. Imprecatory prayers are Old Testament prayers for the defeat and destruction of the enemies of God and his people. A New Testament variation on these prayers is to ask God to save the people but destroy the institutions. Our prayers, part of our seven year...

haven't read anything this patronizing in a minute
Heavenly Bodies led me to the theory — formed while chatting with a quite beautiful gal while she performed a lap dance — that men visit these places, not so much to look at the women as to have the women look at them, to gain the attention of someone who normally wouldn’t give them the time of day, even if it costs $10 to do so. via oh REVELATION of REVELATIONS, buddy.

Since unpredictable rewards cause more dopamine release than predictable ones and more dopamine means more pleasure, one implication of this study is that people experience more pleasure with unpredictable rewards than with predictable ones — but they may not be consciously aware of this fact. Not just that, but there was essentially no relationship between the subjects’ stated preferences and...

Rate is determined on what the dancer is asked to perform wearing.
