I'm sorting through a bunch of videos on my YouTube pages, and have finally decided to put all my dellybancing bits in one place. :)  So trying to find the SteamPunk vids I aired here eons ago, I came across this. :)  Hope those of you who dance, (including men & women alike) will like! :D

Oooh!  Plus, BELLYHORROR is coming up this weekend!!  Friday night is the BH show AT THE BIRCHMERE, (O.O) and then the rest of the weekend they're going to be having workshops & other BH-related events- including a horrrrific Tribal Cafe, where more All Hallows belly-fun can be had! :D  

Also, Galena (or as many of us know her, Kelly or Caitilin), will be hosting one HELL of an All Hallows Hafla this weekend, on Saturday night!  There will be TONS of bellydance there, a costume contest, prizes, food & drink (both adult & otherwise), and even a babysitter for those of you who have wee small kiddies. :)  (The early half of the night is PG, and the rest will be darker, scarier, and a little more PG-13.)  I'm going to be missing out on BellyHorror's after-party to be there, and I -know- it's gonna be great!  So join all the folks w/Sestraluna and many of us from Galena's dance classes out in Glen Burnie Saturday night for one amazing, spooky party! :D:D
Check out her page @ www.galenadance.com for further details. :)

It's shapin' up to be one fun, busy All Hallows Eve week! :D:D

Love and Grins,
Nae


P.S.  Vending last Saturday night @ Midnight went pretty okay.  Scott bought one piece, then bought another for a girl who really wanted one of my works, and all the rest was raw customer-age. ;D  My white, indoor-painted cat w/the "Welcome" sign on him even got sold- even though he hadn't been lacquered yet!  (This of course I told him, and gave him a lower price on it for.  It doesn't hurt the product, you just can't put it out in the rain/weather because of it.)  So all in all I made about $150, and it seems I'll be vending again next Thursday, @ Tronik's redux of "Spooky." :)  Wish me luck there, and at Kelly's Halloween Hafla, where I'll be going as.. something... (I don't yet know what), and hopefully vending a few of my wares. ^_^

♥♥♥ to All!

Inspired by sleep dep/insomnia:



And have you ever wanted to know everything that they said in that song "One Week?"  Well in this awesome little rendition, you're quite likely to find out. :D:D

 


Now all I can wonder is; why haven't I heard of these "Bathroom Sessions" before???  I mean, I'm no mad-crazed BNL fan, but I loves the guys- and these are NEAT!! *squee*


..Gee I hope I remember all this after I've gotten some sleep..!! :D:D

♥ to All,
Nae

Hear ye, hear ye!  Lost Zombies is calling for submissions to their upcoming, scrapbook-style book!!  "What the hezmata is LZ," you say?  Well, Lost Zombies is a collaborative project of sorts, that takes events like zombie walks, lurches, zombie flick promo events and other re-enactments and presents them in documentary-form to the public, w/the desire to "inform" them about the coming onslaught of the zombie apocalypse. ;)  (I.e. it's a spoof "documentary" about zombie attacks, making it look like the zombie walks, lurches etc. were real events- something like Orwell's "War of the Worlds.") 

I'm puttin' this out here in case friends of mine who've been wanna tell people about their harrowing experiences at the DC Zombie Lurch. :)  

Do you have pictures, journal entries, harrowing diary excerpts, or first-hand accounts of your contact with the living dead?  Could you retell your experiences, if you don't have them down already?  Ever had a near-brush w/zombie death?  ([livejournal.com profile] flameofsilver[livejournal.com profile] echochild78?)  Well Lost Zombies wants to hear from you!!  Now you have the chance to have your photos and writings about the walking dead be published in a real, live (or, would that be undead..?) book!! ^_^  Just check out their site at www.lostzombies.com, and peep this quick video below, detailing the site and what this whole book submission thing is all about. :D:D

This could be GREAT for photographers, writers, and anyone who wants to get their work more widely seen. :)  Plus, it'll help others learn about the Lurch, and what a great zombie population we have growing in DC! :D:D  So gather up your best pics and your most harrowing accounts of the carnage you've seen (or undergone), and let's take Lost Zombies by storm! ^_^

I just discovered that my vids were indeed NOT too big to post, plus w/the few ones that were, I could downsize them via Windows Movie Maker. :D:D  (Which I had suspected, but didn't know how to use to do so until tonight.)  So if anyone would like to see quick videos of the cannibals' act at BellyHorror, Misty the Firedancer from last night at the Piratz Tavern, some bellydancers at FaerieCon, or a summary snapshot of my folks' party in October, click on over and take a peek. ^_^
