Naked Girls Reading Science Fiction
You could be hearing Isaac Asimov and Douglas Adams in a whole new way, if you happen to be in New York on March 5. The Pinchbottom Burlesque is organizing "Naked Girls Reading Science Fiction." (NSFW pic below the fold.)
The event takes place at "the plush and decadent upstairs lounge at Madame X in Greenwich Village," and costs $25. Among the readers is Nasty Canasta, who has been known to dress up as a naughty version of both the fourth and tenth Doctors from Doctor Who. (We we wrote about the Pinchbottom Burlesque previously — link includes NSFW pics.) Tor.com attended one of their previous events, devoted to banned books, and wrote:
The effect on the crowd, mostly couples, was intoxicating. During the erotic readings, there were hoots and hollers. When Jo Boobs read a shockingly explicit passage from 1748's Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, involving two women holding a third's legs wide apart for the pleasure of a young man, the catcalls came loud and fast. But during the non-erotic readings, the audience fell into rapt attention. Gal Friday's staccato, deadpan reading of American Psycho was an electric thrill of watching a broken mind at work.The event is an offshoot of Naked Girls Reading, a series started in Chicago and featured on various TV shows. Besides Asimov and Adams, they say featured authors will include Aldous Huxley and H.G. Wells — but here's hoping they include some female authors too, since it's a bit odd to have naked women reading only works by men. (I'd like to nominate Octavia Butler's Kindred, and maybe some Le Guin.) Images by Beau Allulli. [Pinchbottom via Broadway World]

Re: Naked Girls Reading Science Fiction
One of the ladies should read Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs.
"What does it mean to be alive except to court disaster and suffering at every moment?"
Ligotti: Ceremonies for initiating children into the cult of the sinister.
Tibet: Gas stations?
Ligotti: Nothing to say about gas stations as such, although I've always responded to the smell of gasoline as if it were a kind of perfume.
