Where’s That Dildo 2
Here’s a follow up on a post I did previously on a project where they take a dildo and hide it in a subtle place in a room, and then they take a photo, post it, and people have to find the dildo.
Are you surprised that it’s already catching fire?
We thought the idea had a lot of potential from the start just because everyone loves Where’s Waldo and everyone loves a good dick joke, and this is a combination of the two that’s simultaneously childish and very adult. However, the actual public response has definitely exceeded any expectations we had when this started and is great encouragement to push Subtle Dildo even further.
So who are the “we” behind Subtle Dildo?
We’re a group of 20-somethings that all live together and work in varied, separate fields. We don’t think our names are all that important when it comes to Subtle Dildo.
So far they claim they’ve had all positive responses. Maybe they did for all we know. I think it’s interesting as a human nature project. I also think it’s interesting they won’t use their names. It seems to be the typical mind set these days.
Jeff Bezos’ Little Amazon Campfire
I’ll bet most authors I know didn’t even realize that every year Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, has a highly guarded, secretive event where he invites the most elite authors. They fly in on private jets and pull up in limos. It’s held at an exclusive resort in Santa Fe, NM. Most of the authors sound as if they’re from big publishing houses…the old guard of old publishing, and THE most privileged of us all. But it’s so highly protected no one speaks its name…so to speak…and like everything else Amazon related Bezos wants to keep it that way.
But this year there’s been so much controversy over the Amazon/Hachette issue about book pricing some didn’t attend, and some didn’t even get invited. Some are even talking about it, in a lame attempt to break the Amazon secrecy.
That chance will come in November when Burtka stars in a solo cabaret act entitled Burtka, David at 54 Below in New York City on 25 and 26 November.
The show will be directed by Harris who directed the Hollywood Bowl production of Rent a few years back.
It’s being promoted as a show that’s unlike any cabaret act before, which is interesting to me because I not a huge fan of typical cabaret, torch songs, or any kind of show tunes. But this looks like it could be different.
In any event, you can read more here. There’s also a link to the night club web site with a video of Burtka and Harris performing together. I watched it and I LOVE it. They’re great together and it’s not without humor and a little classic camp.
Side note: I love the remark about Burtka being Harris’ new “hubby.” I know that’s cheesy magazine talk for cute and adorable, but seriously, these guys have been together sharing their lives for over ten years.
