Legoland, Where Bricks Are For Kids

Torn from their parents’ Hippie commune, young Penny and Ezra Lamb struggle to cope with the horrors of high school and the snap-together values and plastic people of the real world, which they refer to as “Legoland.” Penny finally discovers love in the lead heartthrob of boy band 7-Up, only to have it crushed with his foul-mouthed hop-hip comeback solo album featuring chainsaw rape. So, she and her demented brother embark on a road trip to Florida to confront him with love and a mean ukulele, bankrolling their journey dealing from their abundant supply of prescription drugs.

Chewing the Obscenery

Halloween is over, but the monsters are only just starting to crawl from the shadows. This week sees the 2007 Here Be Monsters arts festival at The Dollhouse Studios (42 West 8th Ave) running from November 7th—11th. Theatre, cabaret, visual art, nipple tassels and a small Asian man lapping from a hamster wet bar strapped to an innocent bystander’s crotch — these are just a few of the creatures parading themselves about for your sordid pleasure. Also, The Pretty Titty Burlesque, This is Cancer— Live! (a man made blind from cancer, but…is very funny about it) Atomic Vaudeville (a collective which includes pretty much every artistically bent person in Victoria) will all be there. What a scene! Fumble your way out of the porn sites, drag your sweaty fingers across the keys until they spell herebemonsters.ca and put your pants back on for Christ’s sake. You’re still at work and it’s not even Casual Friday yet.

It's Always Sumthin'

It’s always sumthin’, innit? This year there is much controversy amongst the performers about the Vancouver Fringe’s decision to mount the Encore Series at the same time as the Fringe itself. Counter-programming against, the phrase on many people lips is “this is the year the Fringe ate itself.”
