Burlesque Film Opening This Monday (5/18) at the Guild Cinema
A WINK AND A SMILE
May 18-21 ( Monday - Thursday) 3:30, 5:30. 7:30
Director in person at the 7:30 shows!! Plus short live performances by BURLESQUE NOIR!
Dir. Deirdre Allen Timmons - 2008 - 91m An intoxicating mix of private thoughts and public behavior, A Wink and a Smile exposes more than the human body by putting gender, power, sexuality and social identity under the glittery spotlight, as it follows the lives of ten "ordinary" women who do something extraordinary – learn the art burlesque dancing and striptease. Through their adventures, we see how a homemaker, a reporter, a doctor, an opera singer, a taxidermist and a college student, join the American cultural revival of burlesque, as it moves from fringe fascination to mainstream obsession, engaging a world where performance art and showgirl spectacle, music, theater and sensuality crash into over-the-top glamour - a world where many want to go, but very few dare. Here's the trailer.

I need to learn how to hoop dance because:
Good thing there’s a group here in Albuquerque that specializes in hooping. Yay! They meet every Sunday at 11a.m. at Bataan Park, Lomas and Amherst - next to Walgreens. I know what I’m doing next Sunday morning. Join me!!
Now, some hoopers!
LOOK AT HOW FRAKKING TONED SHE IS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Excuse me while I mop up the drool from my keyboard. Gah!
I really want to get the Hoopnotica dvd when I get the moneys. For the time being, I will gladly enjoy my Sundays in the park hopefully getting some one on one instruction for free.
Bonus : How to make your own hoop.
I am going to give you advice. Take it or leave it but its good advice. Stop focusing on all the shit around you. Your life is shit because you are just focusing on the shit. Stop it. Be grateful for a lot of things in life but quit with the shit focusing. God damn. Its your life. I'm only saying it once.
It’s official. Christina Aguilera has confirmed to play a burlesque dancer in the film “Burlesque”. The film is written by Steven Antin, brother to Robin Antin of Pussycat Doll fame. Yeah.
My gut reaction to this project is to automatically dismiss it. I don’t like Christina or the Pussycat Dolls. I don’t really think of the Pussycat Dolls as a burlesque act. They just sing in their underwear. I don’t get it. The plot sounds like every stripper/hooker with a heart of gold movie out there:
Let me guess, she falls in love with her manager, but SURPRISE, he turns out to be a scumbag. After some shaming, fall from grace, she receives help and redemption from her “family of dancers” played by the Pussycat Dolls. She falls in love with the only man to ever believe in her ,an audience member who frequents her shows, and live happily ever after. Awwww.
I can’t wait to snark this. Please, pay me to see this. I can only hope it is as LOL worthy as Showgirls and somebody gets pushed down the stairs.
I know. I know. I’m prejudging something that could be great. Who knows? But I have a tendency to roll my eyes at any watered–down project Hollywood lays it’s hands on these days.
If I could live my life like a musical I would want it to be a Bollywood movie. Every time I needed to proclaim my love for my boyfriend or need to pray for rain, I want a fully choreographed eight minute long dance sequence complete with women dressed in gorgeous saris and lots of drums!!!!!!!!!
I absolutely love the picture up top. It’s from a movie called Khalnyak . I haven’t seen it yet but I loooooove the dance sequence. The song is called '”Cholie Ke Peeche Kya Hai” which means “What’s behind the blouse?'” I want to wear that outfit everyday.
Go rent Lagaan right now!! It makes the game of cricket interesting.
Burlesque Noir has a Bollywood themed piece called “Saggy Paneer” but it’s not loading on Youtube. :( Rude.
Instead, pictures to inspire!
We’re the dancers.
Hi, I’m gorgeous.
