February 2009

As anyone who was at the Valentine's Day show this year would know, the show went off great. We showcased a Love Poetry Contest and an Erotic Poetry Contest with a chance to win cash prizes. A madcap collection of various hues and shades of love, the show seemed to have a little something for everyone. From folk songs to ad lib to flopping around on stage to a poem, it was a collection of performances that showcased how varied love and passion can be seen. Perhaps it was the chocolate fountain with strawberries and fudge before the show that set the tone. To say nothing of our own in house Eros, Flynn Allen, with his flower basket and the stellar Starr the raffle ticket queen added a playful touch. And of course, the amazing artwork both in the lobby and the slideshow. Thank you artists, Lyssa England for the passionate paintings, Christy Sanford for the seductive and stimulating visual art slideshow, and Salita Timmermeyer ( for the gorgeous jewelry display.

The show portion of the evening was steamed up by belly dancing from Alena Eising, singing with the saxophone by Sheree DeNeu and Ken McMurray, sizzling erotic poetry by Gingerbread Man, and splashes of love from ThirdEyeSpoken members, Johnny Rocket, Flynn Allen, and Eddie B. Of course, the Hippodrome State Theater's main stage was a magical place to be staging the show, and we can't extend our gratitude to them enough. And not only was the show held there, but we managed to nearly pack the house! To our supportive community, we also extend our gratitude, and our hopes that the show was as magical for you as we put our all into making it. We’d like to give a special thank you to Bill Defeo, Barbara Brand, Kali Blount, Jennessa Paige, Joshua Porter, Alex King, Bhakti Gauthier, Stacy Parrish and Bijan for being a much needed support.
