In the meantime, we've had lots of fun goings-on here in Old Hollywood. -The Vault- became the happiest place on earth (yeah, I know, I know... use your imaginations on this with me here, please!) when Liz, Moonbeam and I arranged two all-Disney sets on one day! All of you showed up in the best costumes, and it was amusing and somewhat disturbing to hear how we all think of The Little Mermaid (the princess you'd most like to "know") and the seven dwarves (specifically, how their height was perfect for keeping Snow White very, very happy).
Dame Edith as Ursula (The Little Mermaid)
Dame Edith came back for the second set as Tinkerbell! Check out her support hose!
Moonbeam as Millificent (Sleeping Beauty) with Diablo the crow... creepy and fabulous!
My fiance (don't ask, it's a long story) Finn as "Prince F'ing Charming"
This past Saturday Violet played "Flavors Of Oz," some lovely tribute songs to The Wizard of Oz. Again, you all showed up in some fantastic costumes, though no one dared to be The Cowardly Lion in this den of sin.
Chaos Priestman is a flying monkey with a backup singer!
Two Dorothy (this is Veronika!)
And Glinda (Galinda? Glinda with a guh?) the Good Witch played by Violet!
~~Welcome Our New DJ: Drakaar Dover~~
Yeah, fuhgeddabowdit... This guy's from Brooklyn and you can hear it in every syllable he utters. Not for nuttin' but I had a half-hour crush on the dude... Black pants held up by suspenders (gasp!) over a strappy undershirt showing off his well-defined muss-kels (swoon!) and topped by an impossibly fly fedora... (sigh....) But you really just want to know about the music, not all that stuff! This guy plays the fastest, swingin'est swing around. You won't get a chance to catch your breath and you'll love every minute of it! Join us here Wednesdays 6-8 pm and Drakaar'll hook you up.
All that, plus nightly events full of wonderful old swing and big band played by Persephone, Annabel, Lou, and me, AND rockin' rock-a-billy by Nhaomi, Sunday night 50s doo-wop by Seg, and Monday night ska (so fun!) by Gwillym... AND live music by Bluemonk and Crooner! -The Vault- is THE place to be!!!
~~P.S.: Mr Finchley~~
You all know Mr Finchley, that naughty pick-pocketing monkey who collects Lindens and bananas for -The Vault-. Apparently he has some other skills of which we were unaware. Call Mr Finchley directly for your 10, 20, or 30 minutes of monkey paw stress relief. Just keep in mind, Mr Finchley is easily distracted. He forgets the happy ending.
That's YoYo there getting the knots worked out of his neck muss-kels.
