Part I of photos from the incredible Whatever She Wants: A Drag Musicale! Co-written and co-starring SASHA STEINBERG, cartoonist extraordinaire! who you can follow on tumblr for more more more!

Lip-syncing! Gender-bending! Murder! A gay ole time! Blending classic drag performances, theater, and film noir, Whatever She Wants is sure to please. Whatever She Wants tells the story of Veronica—an aging singer whose star is on the downward bell curve of success—and Jayne—a young upstart with nowhere to go but up, and no morals to get in the way. For one night only, witness the Main Street Museum transform into the Foxtrot Lounge, and the men and women of White River transform into the glorious drag queens and kings of a bygone era.

May 11th, 9pm. 5—20 dollars. A benefit for Tranzmission, prison book project. BYOB - Dance party to follow.

Yesterday, August 8th, I visited the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont.  Before my tour of campus, I sat out in the town square and drew the old timey elegance of the Hotel Coolidge.  It’s also where some of the students live, in dorms.  

I had added a few thoughts in pencil, “do I have a future here?”  I’m thinking of going there for grad school, after I graduate in Spring ‘15.

Main Street Museum, White River Junction VT - 3/24/12

Tucked between bridges, train tracks, and dead end streets in White River Junction, Vermont, Main Street Museum is an “eclectic display space for material culture and an experiment in a new taxonomy”. This place is cooool. It’s full of curiosities, ranging from strange skulls to ordinary household artifacts pulled from flooded rivers to a jar containing the breath of John Denver.

Unfortunately Mercury in retrograde really handed us a good one, and our car broke down on our way to the show, making us wicked late. Once we finally found the place we got pulled over by the police, making us later and causing us to miss Rabbit Rabbit’s entire set. BOO! But he didn’t give us a ticket, so WOO! ?

Thunderhole rocked it, and we had a blast playing. Thanks to all the people for coming out, giving us popcorn, and dancing with us. We had a blast and will return soon!
