Does anyone know of any e-mail newsletters available to subscribe to regarding upcoming St. Louis theatre performances (broadway and otherwise)? I would like to keep up with what is being performed and where, but haven't the time to look at all the theatre sites on a regular basis.

Does anyone know of any poetry slams or def poetry jam-type events in the area? I would love to attend some of these events if they are out there. :)

The United States Government is a proud body. They pride themselves on their delegation and enforcement of laws. They hold dear the articles that first gave the US its body of power. They keep ideals that seem to have survived decades. One of these ideals is the separation of church and state.

Americans ahve always looked to their governement and the legislative branch in particular to farily represent them. Many times the specifics of the separation fo church and atate have been battled over in court. The most commonly known issue was the separation of school and church - whether or not to allow prayer in school. To many Americans the results of this battle rang clear that there was a separation. Public schools were not allowed to hold pray during class, and students and parents who wished to be allowed to pray set up private schools to accomodate themselves.

But this separation of church and state has always been an ideal, not a reality. Americans are a diverse people but the majority of them still represent Judeo-Christian paths and we elect Christian persons to government positions. The reality of this ideal rang clear ot me when I read an article in Time recounting the Vatican's message to Catholic politicians.

The newest issue, or oldest, in government today is the issue over homosexual marriage. With Canada allowing such marriages and the dismissal of the laws in the US preventing homosexual relations between tow people, the next step for the US is to allow homosexual relationships. The Vatican however does nto wish to see that happen. They issued a statement which strongly encouraged all catholic politicans to fight this step. The Vatican does not wish to allow homosexual marriages.

This makes one wonder, is the reality we live in truly the only reality. I was taught by both the Catholic and Public education systems. In both I was taught that there is a separation of church and state, and that people were allowed to follow the religious and social paths they chose. But now the Vatican has taken a step to insert a single church's views into the government. This has happened before, I know, but never has it been so personal to me.

The Vatican should not be allowed to decide who one person can or cannot marry. The US Government should not even be allowed that. Marriage, as I was taught by both Catholic and Public systems, is a sacred event. It brings together two people whom love each other greatly. It is even a sacred path endorsed by the Roman Catholic Church. According to the Church, God brings two people together whose destinies are interwoven. God brings them together to live happily and to love without limitations.

However, now the Church wishes to take away God's command. The Church wishes to Choose who can and cannot marry. They want to override the will of God and put their own will into force.

Which reality will you choose to live in? One where church and state are separate? Or one where there is only an illusion of that separation?

SUMMER SANITARIUM - trade tickets? [28 Jun 2003|11:42pm]

Sorry for the.. erm.. randomness of this post. But I have two General Admission Floor tickets to the Summer Sanitarium show at the Edwards Jones Dome on July 25. I'm looking to trade them for two seat tickets. If you're interested, feel free to reply. Thanks!

I just found this community. I thought some people might be interested in a drag king show. The Riverfront Times did a decent article last week. You can still look at it on their website at www.riverfronttimes.com (Go to last week's issue.)

We're performing tomorrow, Saturday, January 11th at Attitudes. Doors open at 10 pm. Attitudes is on Manchester, a few blocks east of Kingshighway. I'd love it if you came.

I guess I'll intro myself. I'm a drag king. I'm a tutor in Middle School. I like cheese. I just moved back to the Lou after graduating from Smith College in Mass.

Okay, so two cows are standing in the English country side and one cow says the other: "'Oy, you 'eard of this Mad Cow disease?" and the other cow says: "What do I care? I'm a bloody 'elicopter."

Not that that has much to do with St. Louis, but um...

Okay, best St. Louis greek restaurant: Olympia's.
best cool little coffee house: South Grand Coffeehouse.
Best bookstore(s): Subterranean Books
Best Tattoo Parlor: both Goldenlands (up north) and Iron Age.
But these are just my opinions...

okay lj users, i'm "collecting" dolls for one of my classes, and since i'm strapped for cash, i'm asking you, the internet community, to help me out. if you have any old dolls, porcelian or plastic, that are in ANY condition, I NEED THEM. i will either trade you for a mixtape/zine (i'm making more copies of my old ones, nothing new) or pay you the postage. or buy you a gift certificate to subway or something. these dolls can be your own from childhood, your sisters, or just some you found at the thrift store.

if you can't help me out that way, there's other things you can do. i'm also putting together a zine about dolls, and if you want to write a piece for it, or draw a cartoon, or something, that'd be awesome. it could bea bout how much you hated/hate dolls, a favourite doll, how fucking creepy they are, ANYTHING.

if you want to participate, just email me. i think my address is on the userinfo screen. and if it's not, then reply and i'll tell you how to contact me.
