Ringing in the New Year | Working | Mighty Real

2008 is here and I am working hard to start the new year on a good foot. A few things I've done to begin this year with confidence, strong convictions, and remembering things that matter to me:

a) When Sylvester sang "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" at The Cuff, I shook it especially hard. I knew one of my beloved Cockettes would want 2008 to be great for us all. I worked for it.



b)As an act of care and adoration for a past I never knew, I smoked 2 Nat Sherman Clove cigarettes; one for John|Peace, and for Yoko|Love. I worked to enjoy them, but it didnt work.



c)In celebration of my new job as assistant costume designer at 5th Avenue Theatre downtown, I watched both film versions of MAME. While the costumes in both were superb, Rosalind Russell takes the cake on all accounts. Now I work 8:30 to 5 again.

Even without its delightful implications for gender barriers and sexual politics, "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)" would be one of my favorite songs of all time. It's a perfect disco treasure and never fails at making me feel energized, beautiful, and ready to show the world what I've got. Congrats on making the most of that moment.
