Getting Bawdy with Mike Daisey

It's not every day we have the opportunity to get bawdy with Mike Daisey. And, really, what does that even mean? 

Join us Friday at Galapagos Art Space (our favorite places for art are Spaces) for BAWDY STORYTELLING. It has been an epically popular show on the West Coast for six years and they are debuting in NYC this week with Mr. Daisey and a bunch of other Tellers of Story! We get to be the musical guests in between all the perv-y, sex-laden anecdotes. We have no idea why they thought we would be appropriate musical guests for such a scandalous event but we'll manage to come up with something. 

Here is a link to all the details you ever wanted: ALL THE DETAILS EVER. Come along!

This is Bald Oprah. She is not her hair

For today's blog post, we direct you to another blog. (The word "blog" sounds bizarre when you say it too many times. Blog. BLOG. Blergh.)

El's cousin Steph has a brilliantly snarky attitude about her breast cancer, and we think you will enjoy reading her words. CLICK HERE and feel your feelings.

Voting is important! Voting is sexy!

They look like they're thinking about voting.

EL: Hey, Mel?
MEL: Yes, El?
EL: It's time for a call to action. We need to get everyone to vote.
MEL: True. People think that Romney's unending gaffes are gonna be his end but there is widespread voter suppression and...
EL: I'm talking about the Broadway World Awards Nominations.
MEL: Seriously?
EL: Yeah, they just added some cabaret-esque categories and regular folks can nominate us for things.
MEL: I don't think you're supposed to ASK people to nominate you.
EL: Please! This is how the universe works! Everything is a popularity contest! Kardashians run the world!
MEL: That is so depressing.
EL: Or it's amazing! As long as we get our base FIRED UP! READY TO GO!
MEL: Please don't co-op Obama campaign language for this situation.
EL: I can't be stopped!


1. Go here
2. Fill in "Mel & El" where it says "Person" in the categories where that makes sense.
3. Fill in "Mel & El: Our Time of the Month" where it says "Show" in those same categories.
4. Tell everyone you know to do the same
5. Do it again
6. Feel really good about yourself

EL: Was that so bad?
MEL: A little bit.
EL: Don't worry. We'll go do some volunteer hours right now for something important to help make up for it.
EL: No. We're gonna watch Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.
MEL: I hate you.
EL: You're watching it already, aren't you?
MEL: Yeah.
