FRIDAY 12/21


Frankly, Xmess is the least of our worries. Welcome to Armageddon! Again! (We've got more apocalypses up in here than a Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathon.) But really, with the world FINALLY going kablooey this week and with everyone suffering a fiery Mayan death of horror, you'd think it would lighten up our schedule just a teensy bit, now wouldn't you? Give a girl a couple of days to paint her toenails and catch up on Weeds a little on Netflix? And what a fucking relief, right? (Honestly!) But nooo...

SUNDAY 12/23


Well. Here we are, supposedly all exploded and vaporized and perhaps alien-enslaved or what-have-you (and with janky toenails and WAY behind on Weeds still, to boot!), but I guess it's time to face a harsh truth: Those Mayan bitches were full of shit. Christmas is still coming at us like a bullet train on Vaseline stilts, Republicans still exist (God effing damn it, really), and I'm pretty sure global warming is still going to kill us all, yes, but oh... so... much... more... sloooowllyyyy. (Dear asshole Mayan calendar-makers: REFUND PLEASE!) But let's look at the bright side, which is this: A Very Alan Thickemas. A VERY ALAN THICKEMAS! HA! What a wonderful and ridiculous thing to help one appreciate the continuance of all life on earth. It's an '80s Christmas cabaret (squeal!) whose mascot/inspiration is ALAN THICKE, a man who I'm sure you've forgotten (or maybe even never knew—goddamn whippersnappers!). Well. He played the dad on that shitty '80s sitcom they called Growing Pains, which of course also featured a future very-crazy-reborn Christian and television's first boner. (Pay attention! It's history!) The event is made of live comedy, filmed sketches, live music, and a film called (appropriately enough) A Very Alan Thickemas featuring the actual voice of (appropriately enough) a very Alan Thicke. It won't make up for the continued existence of Republicans, but it can be considered a clever FUCK YOU to the shit-for-brains, repressed, anti-gay man-twat that is Kirk Cameron, if you try. (TRY!) Can Can, 8 pm, $12, 21+.



Merry Xmess, wonderful 'mos! I'm glad you didn't get exploded to death. (Suck it, Mayans!) Go get gay-married or something nice. You deserve it.
