Thanks for the awesome article, OC Weekly!

OC Weekly's Leandra Romero interviewed me while I got ready to play Luke Skywalker in the recent Star Girls Star Wars burlesque show at the Yost Theater in Santa Ana. Star Girls creator and producer Courtney Cruz makes an appearance; the clip also has great footage of the Landspeeder violin Carlos Flores made for me shooting fireworks from its jets! Check out the whole video here: http://blogs.ocweekly.com/heardmentality/2014/07/star_wars_burlesque_girls_yost_theater_santa_ana_video.php

Don't miss the next full-scale Star Girls show in Hollywood, coming to the Dragonfly nightclub August 15th! Tickets and more info are available on the Devil's Playground Burlesque website.

I GOT ELECTED!!

I recently had the honor of being elected to my local neighborhood council here in Los Angeles! Campaigning for public office was a great experience, and I'm committed to doing my best to represent the people who trusted me with their votes. The work thus far has been challenging, but fascinating, and in my rapidly changing, gentrifying neighborhood, it's been heartening to see that one voice really can make a difference. 

Next time I'm up for election, though, I think I need to campaign in the style of Alice Cooper! This 1972 promo clip for the song "Elected" (Billion Dollar Babies) is one of the first MTV-style music videos ever made:
