Last week we gathered at The Blue Room @ The Embassy and had so much fun, that we gathered there again the next night. I would tell you more, but you know, what happens in the Blue Room stays in the Blue Room, at least until I find my camera and upload the pictures to flickr!

Bust out your monocle and top hat, this week we are attending the theater. Sorta.

We are heading to see “The Subject is Sex” at Oddball Films. If you are interested in joining us, rsvp with me to save you a seat, but only after you RSVP with them for a ticket! It’s sure to sell out quickly so do it now! It promises to be a campy gender-bending, genre-bending, lovefest. No. Really. Read the email I got from them! Actually, I got it from Linda Chan but still, it promises!

We’ll be having dinner at Experimental Thai Kitchen (806 South Van Ness – http://www.yelp.com/biz/ERFo6rHefS-FX_kC-bqkuQ) at 6:30, then heading over early to get good seats.

See you there!

³THE SUBJECT IS SEX²
SCREENS AT ODDBALL FILMS

This Friday, March 31st at 8:30 PM Oddball Films presents Stephen Parr¹s
³The Subject is Sex², an extraordinary personal romp through the seamy side
of Sex in Cinema. Drawn from his extensive 16mm film archives, this
polymorphous program promises a pulsating panorama of perverse pleasures
that includes home movies, hillbilly porn, cartoon smut, commercials,
trailers, educationals, hygiene films, burlesque bits, peepshow loops and
the infamous ³Cheap Smut Give-A-Way². The screening is at 275 Capp St.
Admission is $10.00(RSVP, Limited seating).For reservations please email:
info@oddballfilm.com or call 415.558.8117.

³The Subject is Sex² is drawn almost entirely from Parr¹s holdings at
Oddball Film + Video. Founded in 1984, Oddball houses an extensive offbeat
collection of over 50,000 films. Parr, a imagemaker, curator and archivist
has been screening ³The Subject is Sex² (and hosting his notorious ³Cheap
Smut Give-A-Way²) throughout the United States and Europe for over 3 years
to sellout audiences.

An introductory essay in the dvd, (released by Other Cinema dvd) by Eric
Schaefer, film scholar and author of ³BOLD! DARING! SHOCKING! TRUE!, A
History of Exploitation Film 1919-1959² (Duke University Press), lays the
groundwork for this diverse compendium of moving image erotica. Schaefer
writes, ³The Subject is Sex² is a Rorschach test. Where some will see
humor, a few will see outrage. What may be titillation for many will be a
turn-off for others. But for everyone, and in every instance you¹re seeing
the history of sex in the Twentieth Century.²

Program highlights include:

The ³nudie cutie² adventures of ³Uncle Si and the Sirens².

The classic cartoon curio ³Buried Treasure² starring Eveready Hardon (with a
new music score by Nik Phelps from San Francisco¹s Sprocket Ensemble).

French Tickler², a clever 1920s clip of animated fellatio.

50¹s classic burlesque films (including ³Love Moods² with famed femme fatale
Lili St. Cyr cavorting in a ornate bathtub).

Choice 60s and 70s porn trailers (featuring the psychobilly smut ³Memories
Within Miss Aggie² and the pre-Viagra ³Dynamite²).

³970-KATHY² – a kinky, campy late 80¹s commercial for phone sex.

³The Subject is Sex² also contains soft core selections with hidden or
unintended erotic messages. A Jade East cologne commercial featuring sexy
Japanese go-go dancers becomes a sexual exhortation for men to take matters
into their own hands, a home movie (³Crossing the Equator²) becomes a
surreal souvenir of cross dressing seafarers, and the US Navy training film
²How to Give an Enema² turns into a kinky homo erotic lesson in water
sports. By compiling these generous gems in to a full-length collection,
³The Subject is Sex² brings together commercial, camp, comedy, and explicit
sex all in one gender-bending, genre-bending, lovefest. Copies of the dvd
will be available for purchase at the screening for the reduced price of $20
or online at http://www.othercinemadvd.com/subjectsex

Plus! Beefcakes +Cheesecakes and the infamous ³Cheap Smut Give-A-Way²
