That was the perfect 5th Hotnuts anniversary. Thank you all for dressing up and packing the Lobster Beach Resort.
Keith Cole’s performance took a couple of hours as he installed a Hotnuts birthday sign across the street from The Beaver. The scaffolding of the Bohemian Embassy never looked so beautiful. The audience inside couldn’t be happier: they got a shower of pink lobster spawn from Mary and me and hot clam chowder from Wilbur Junior. What more can you ask for, really?
It’s our 5 year anniversary party. Dress up with us for the Lobster Beach Resort. It’s lobsters, it’s the beach, it’s a resort. It’s Hotnuts at The Lobster Beach Resort! For the anniversary we have two of our favourite performers back on stage: Professorin Lex Vaughn and MFA Keith Cole!

This is the second last Hotnuts at The Beaver. After the June Hotnuts, we’re taking a summer break. In the fall we’re going to come back at a new venue. Hotnuts Reloaded.
Pedro Almodovar’s new movie The Skin I Live In will have it’s premiere in Cannes next week. The film’s poster could also be an ad for Bodyworlds. This better be a good sign. Apparently the movie is based on Thierry Jonquet’s novel “Mygale”, this revenge tale tells the story of a plastic surgeon on the hunt for the men who raped his daughter. It’s also the first time in 21 years that Antonio Banderas is going to be featured in an Almodovar film.
In this still from the movie actress Elena Anaya looks like she’s wearing a Margiela bodysuit.
I mean I have not seen one from La Maison MM like this, but couldn’t it be?
One of my firsts posts here on produzentin.com was about Pandas in Chengdu, China. I had visited the Panda Reserve and was very excited about it. However, I did not get a picture like this one. Cuteness overload!
We have set up a new Hotnuts facebook page to send invites to parties and post pictures. The old Hotnuts facebook group is going to shut down soon. So please, hit that LIKE button, because we’d love to stay in touch with you.
Our 5 year anniversary is coming up on Saturday, May 28: Hotnuts at the Lobster Beach Resort.
More on that soon.
I just finished Tina Fey’s fun memoir, anecdote collection Bossypants. If you’re watching 30 Rock, you’re definitly going to be reminded of Liz Lemon in some parts. One of the best chapters is “Amazing, Gorgeous, Not Like That” in which Tina goes on about photo shoots for magazines and Photoshop:
“Do I think Photoshop is being used excessively? Yes. I saw Madonna’s Louis Vuitton ad and honestly, at first glance, I thought it was Gwen Stefani’s baby.
Do I worry about overly retouched photos giving women unrealistic expectations and body image issues? I do. I think that we will soon see a rise in anorexia in women over seventy. Because only people over seventy are fooled by Photoshop.”
“Why can’t we accept the human form as it is?” screams no one. I don’t know why, but we never have. That’s why people wore corsets and neck stretchers and powdered wigs.
If you’re going to expend energy being mad about Photoshop, you’ll also have to be mad about earrings. No one’s ears are that sparkly! They shouldn’t have to be!
