Margaret Cho live at the National (my little review)!!!

We went to got see Margaret Cho live in concert last night!!!

It was wonderful to have seen her but I'm miffed at the fact that since I'm signed up for her newsletter I only received the email on Thursday for a concert scheduled on Saturday! If I had concrete plans for the weekend I would have been sorely upset, especially since it was in a venue so close (well being in Richmond, which is 2 hours away from me, especially where I live, saying that its "close" is really quite sad.)

First off I've never been to Richmond, and quite frankly, I don't think I'll ever go back. The concert was held in what I believe is downtown Richmond. And it was practically like a ghost town. For a Saturday afternoon it was quite dead. Which I couldn't get over. One thing that intrigued me was on our way to the theater we saw the "Diversity Center". Which was this huge-ass warehouse like building literally painted in the rainbow colors (from top to bottom, no joke.) You could see it from the highway, or more accurately you can't miss it from the highway! Which leads me to believe that Richmond may have a gi-normous gay population. Maybe I will visit Richmond again. Must investigate further...

Onto the show...!

Margaret is trying something different with this foray into musical comedy. I was half gritting my teeth and half excited since I haven't seen Margaret live since the 2004 elections. I've always enjoyed her comedy but in recent years its gotten to be a little more politically directed which was enjoyable but it just seemed that everyone had something to say and didn't mind saying it. Well Margaret goes back to what made her most popular (in my opinion) which is SEX! She talks about sex from the get-go and touches on stuff from past acts just briefly, but really goes the distance with new stuff. The tie-in of her spoken comedy with the musical comedy was well done, if not at times a little scripted, but I was expecting that. I was a little surprised at how much I liked the musical bits, it wasn't overplayed or overdone and she can actually sing! She does a little bit of everything from rock to country. Her country song was actually quite good and she should release it as a single. Now I'm looking forward to her full musical comedy CD.
She had 2 opening acts, Ian Harvie and John Roberts.
I've seen Ian on LOGO's stand-up specials, he's a transgendered comedian, who is really cute, but into girls (yuck!) and he quoted a couple of stuff from past acts, which was still funny and I enjoyed alot of his stuff. He had a very short set (he wasn't even listed as an opening act). Which was kinda disappointing. 
I've never seen John Roberts before, he uses alot of wigs and different characters, very random and without explanation, which is part of his act. I didn't "get" alot of his comedy, but it was still funny nonetheless. And both Ian and John helped Margaret with her musical act which was nice.
The venue was small but clean. I've never been to the National at Richmond. Not at all what I expected from past shows, seeing that she is trying new material and new music it was a nice breath of fresh air, it didn't seem over-produced and your get that "down-home" and "one-on-one" experience.
A side note to anyone ever going to the National, have dinner at the restaurant next door, the "Gibson's Grill". If you already have your tickets and you get there early  enough you get priority seating before they start letting people into the theater from the line outside, since it was general admission and they didn't care about the seating numbers we actually got seats front row and center.

Apparently Margaret is having voice troubles, and is advised to not speak by her doctors. But why she's doing a tour AND singing now while all this is going on is beyond me. I really enjoyed the show and I highly recommend it to everyone (18 years and older that it!)

Sad News

A good friends of mine and my partner esprix , died yesterday. His name was Stuart.

He was a good soul and always made me laugh, we were never really close, but through all of Alan's stories I felt that I knew him well.

I will cherish the moments we spent together.

I can't believe he's gone.

He will be missed.

We really need a bathroom scale.

Hey, for the first time this year I went to the gym! WHoo-Hoo! So proud of me!

But it's not like any New Year's Resolution or anything, I stopped doing those a long time ago. Seriously, has anyone ever made one and stuck to it?

The holidays were not kind to me. Body -wise that is. I gained so much weight over the past few weeks I'm almost at my Iraq weight. Which was evident by weighing myself today and not liking the results.

Some of you may say that I'm crazy, that I don't need to lose weight, that I'm fine the way I am. And some of you may be wrong.

I first realized this when I went out clubbing last Saturday at the new gay spot called Town.

I was still getting over the flu (still am by the way) and I was just feeling horrendously unattractive. It's amazing how much psychology goes into my own body perceptions and how I think others see me. I don't even know why I care. I was never this way back when I was heavier in San Diego. I didn't give a shit. Now it's all I think about.

I guess my familial psychosis is finally setting in.

You know you need to start losing weight when you can't even fit into your fat jeans anymore.

So, interesting thoughts going through my head this morning. I was thinking about my past loves (for what reason I can't recall) and it dawned on me, I couldn't remember some of their names! 

How horrible am I?

Well, let me clarify, when I say "loves" I mean serious one's where its both agreed upon that you are significant to each other and you've agreed to take it farther than just "I-have-a-free-minute-I-know-we-just-met-but-let's-fuck-behind-this-file-cabinet" type of "relationship".

One may argue, that, well since it's a significant relationship, how can you forget their name? Well it was at the time which makes me all the more awful that I can't remember their names.

Contrary to popular belief, before I met Alan, I really didn't date all that much. And my relationships aren't that many, which really pisses myself off since I can't remember their friggin' monikers!

It's been frustrating me.

SO I've decided to compile a list of all my past loves, and I ask everyone else to do the same, either here or in their own LJs/blogs/napkins/tampons, etc.

(For those who's answers require more than one page, please attach additional pages. Thanks!)

1. JoAnn
2. Edward
3. Rachelle
4. Neil
5. Boyfriend number 1 who I can't remember his name.
6. Randolf  - not a real boyfriend, but he considered me as such, even though the feeling wasn't mutual. But He was the sweetest guy ever.
7. Christian
8. Justin
9. Boyfriend number 2 who I can't remember his name.
10. Alan
11. Secret boyfriend number 1
12. Secret boyfriend number 2
13. Secret boyfriend number 3
14. Long distance secret boyfriend number 1
15. Secret boyfriend number 4
16. Secret asian boyfriend we don't like to talk about or admit number 1
17. Secret boyfriend number 5

Well, that's my list. Really not that fabulous but it's mine.

Well, its my first blog of 2008. I've been bad about blogging lately, mostly due to laziness not busy.

I may or may not post about the holiday vacation, we'll see.

I just wanted to post this video I got from one of my friends on facebook.

It's hilarious.
