C-ville in the summah! Humidity so thick you could eat it with a spoon on top of sugared raspberries. You take a shower because you're sweaty, sweat in the shower, get out and towel off, and keep right on sweating. You stand packed into a tent of shouting spectators, watching two fully costumed crazy ladies wrassle to the pain, cold beer sweating in one hand, sweaty CLAW bucks waving in the other. Summer is GOOD TIMES, y'all! No better times than summer! No summertime's complete without your CLAWs! We CLAWs are busy preparing for Hot CLAW in the Summertime, coming up Saturday, June 21 at 8 pm at the Blue Moon Diner. We're flexing! We're smack talking! We're running up and down steps! We're resting, because it's too hot for that shit! We're drinking our electrolytes! We're hula hooping, which is so much harder for us now than it was when we were kids! We're floating on pool floats with cold glasses of iced tea hahahaha yeah right we're at work! We're strutting in front of full-length mirrors modeling our various amazing costume ensembles! We're smizing and snarling and raising the roof at ourselves! We are looking FIERCE! You do not want to miss us! You especially do not want to miss out on supporting our June beneficiary, Luna Cream! Luna Cream is all-natural skin care made with just FOUR completely recognizable organic ingredients, and packaged in recyclable material. The company, founded and run locally, makes monthly donations of 10% of its profits to community non-profits. They aim to offer a product that is mindful of the earth, and conscious of our community. Luna Cream sez, "YOU GLOW GIRL!" You can getcher VIP seats for Hot CLAW in the Summertime at jean theory: on the Downtown Mall. What ARE VIP seats, you're wondering? They are only the best way to watch a CLAW match in comfort and style! You get to SIT DOWN. You get a great VIEW. Somebody brings you DRINKS. You don't have to interact with the HOI POLLOI. Unless that's the kind of thing you LIKE TO DO, then interact away! And they're also the very best way to support the beneficiary, so toodle on down to jean theory: and buy you some! And whilst you're toodling, be sure to swing by the Blue Moon Diner before June 21 to eat some bacon and check out Rich Tarbell's show Shadowy People from a Shadowy Planet: The CLAW Silhouettes. In the words of Olon Pills, Rich's marginal alter ego, "this exhibit debuts 30 French Basquesque contour lineations aggrandizing an ensemble of muliebrous combatants." So there ya go. Sample below! See youse soon! Or else!!! Wrists up!
