ROAD TRIP

On July 21st at Studio L’amour, we invite you to Naked Girls Reading. We’ll be exploring wanderlust in the buff!

We’re going to take you on the ultimate naked road trip. Route 66, Anthony Bourdain, Hunter S. Thompson, special guest Bull Garlington, author of “The Full English”

[From Amazon: This is not a guide book. It isn’t Fodor’s or a Lonely Planet guide. God knows such literature would be quite helpful if you plan, like the author, to take your family on an epic journey. The Full English won’t. Not even a little.]

It’s going to be quite a ride!

Doors open at 7:30pm.  Show starts promptly at 8pm. BYOB, however we do have limited beer and wine available. TICKETS

Eclipse

On Sunday, July 16th, at 3pm, I will be premiering the new video, Eclipse, I made in collaboration with composer, Mischa Zupko, at a private event at The Drifter. I’m really excited about this project. I got to work in a different capacity than normal and really stretch my acting chops. The day of the shoot was a really emotional and cathartic one. I’m really proud of the work we did and I’m happy to present it to you. As of now, I’ve only showed it to my fan club, but I finally get to show it publicly!  Join us on Sunday afternoon (yes, afternoon) and hear about the project, see the piece and have some cocktails!

Very few tickets are available. Please purchase tickets here.

READ NAKED DAY

Hey all! As the United States prepares to celebrate “Freedom”, let us all over the world celebrate “f-READ-om” – the freedom to read what we want, when we want, and do it naked if we want (yes, we want)!
JOIN US THE 5TH OF JULY – TAKE OFF YOUR CLOTHES – AND READ A BOOK!
For centuries, being able to read was a mark of privilege and progress. Those who could read were held in high regard. Being able to devour books and literature at your leisure was set aside for the upper classes. Sometimes, even owning books was dangerous and could get you killed.
As time marched on, literacy became more and more prevalent until now we take the that very skill for granted. As a culture, we no longer savor reading. We no longer touch it with our whole bodies. At best, we may read in passing, at as high a speed as we use our social media. Any “literature” longer than 140 characters might as well be War and Peace assigned by a teacher that hates us.
What a shame! Reading is a sensual, ritual experience – or at least it should be. We should set aside time, set the stage, treat books like lovers…
That’s why we, the international literary salon Naked Girls Reading, have decide to make July 5th READ NAKED DAY Join us in removing the obstacles that hinder your freedom to read as a ritual. Doff your clothing on July 5th and get in touch with one of the most powerful forces in history – the reading of the written word.
We invite you to take part by simply reading naked. That’s it. There are no tickets to buy, no places to be. This is an international effort to promote and encourage reading, naked reading. If you’d like to be even more involved in bringing focus back to the ritual of reading BECOME A READ WARRIOR and help us get the word out. Start a naked book club. Get your local books stores involved. Because if there’s one thing we at Naked Girls Reading know for sure:
You can’t spell “literature” without T&A!
