Freedom from Choice
But just for one night
By Wayne Alan Brenner, 2:24PM, Thu. Oct. 13, 2011
Thank you, O Flying Spaghetti Monster,
for this night's manifest destiny vis-a-vis
my personal agenda of Things I Could Do.
Rather, thank you, Julie Gillis of Bedpost Confessions,
for inviting me to be part of tonight's erotic divulgences,
for allowing this Brenner the pleasure of performing
Ye Olde Blowejob Storye at the Spiderhouse Ballroom.
It's a damned good thing I'm booked for that 8pm gig
along with Sadie Smythe and Rosie Q and Kate M
and Austin Chronicle BoA covergirl Angeliska Polachek.
Because, if I weren't already scheduled for such,
I'd have the rough task of choosing among other terrific things –
like the Pastelegram debut party at Domy Books,
or Rubber Repertory's Surprise Annie at the newest seekrit location,
or Amy Stewart's party for her Wicked Bugs book,
or Trouble Puppet's final Thursday of Riddley Walker.
Or the Minotaure sketch troupe at Coldtowne?
That improv Threefer show at the Hideout?
All of which is going on tonight, yeah. Plus more.
And that's without even glancing at the tunesmith opportunities
available in this, ah, Live Music Capitol of the World.
Or you could also be totally, like, Occupying something, n'est-ce pas?
Damn, Austin, you didn't use to be so fierce .
