Storm gaining on playoffs

by Mercy Moosemuzzle - SGN Contributing Writer

Storm vs. Sparks
Mercy and Cuteness found the Seattle Storm vs. L.A. Sparks game on August 28 to be exciting. The first quarter was close, with Storm 13, Sparks 11. Though we had an 11-point lead during the second quarter, the half closed with our 37 to their 30. By the last 1.6 minutes, we were tied 63-63. Sue Bird drew a foul and did two perfect free throws, so we won 65-63.

Camille Little was named player of the game with 13 points. Lauren Jackson and Tanisha Wright contributed 14 each. We've won all four games since Lauren Jackson has been back.

We are now second-place in the Western Division, half a game ahead of Phoenix. As Cuteness says, 'It was a pretty physical game with people getting knocked down. Lauren Jackson missed a free throw, which is unusual for her. Seattle played very well defensively.'

'Last night's win was a huge win in terms of getting the Storm to the playoffs. They still need one more win to clinch a spot in the playoffs. I think they will get there! One of the things I think is great about the team is how the hero is a different person each game - one time it's some amazing play by Sue Bird, another time it's Tanisha Wright, another time Katie Smith, etc. The talent runs deep. But I've gotta say that Sue Bird has given 110% every game this season. She never gives up - it's a thing of beauty to watch.'

Mercy pointed out the WNBA coaches predicted the Storm would be champions again. Cuteness pointed out the playoffs ramp up the effort and will be hard on LJ.

Beebo Brinker Pulp Cabaret
Mercy and Jousts enjoyed the Beebo Brinker Pulp Cabaret very much. Diva le Deviant had some funny stand-up humor. Cherry Manhattan's narration provided enlivening dramatization of Ann Bannon's books. Film erotica introduced the evening well. The singer for the Cooper Smith Quartet had a nice voice and butch drag in the song 'I Put a Spell on You.'

Lyla la Couer, Cherry Manhattan, Polly Wood, and Diva le Deviant performed pleasing choreography by Lily Verlaine on 'I Love Being a Girl.' Rhonda J. Soikowski appeared at the end of the song as Beebo Brinker. Her butch mannerisms were well acted throughout the play. Tonja Diamond demonstrated her lush voice in 'Put Some Sugar in My Bowl.'

Lada Tatas amazed with her range, doing strip teases as both 'Femme Looking for Butch' and 'Butch Looking for Femme.' 'Seduction Part 1' was sexy with Rhonda as Beebo and Lyla la Couer as Paula. 'Secretly' featured a hot striptease by Polly Wood. Lily Verlaine was out there with her strip tease and sex scene with Soikowski.

Diva le Deviant's voice in 'Sooner or Later' was convincingly female. 'Seduction Part 2' was gratifyingly acted by Rhonda as Beebo and Lyla as Laura. 'You Don't Need to Know That' was a powerful moment by EmpeROAR Fabulous. 'Treatment,' by Jesse Belle Jones, was a moving striptease about being placed in a mental hospital for being a Lesbian. 'One-Eyed Burlesque' by Fuchsia FoXXX was a cool hermaphrodite striptease.

Branford Marsalis
Mercy and Cuteness are looking forward to seeing Branford Marsalis at Jazz Alley. He and his band are touring in support of their latest release, Songs of Mirth and Melancholy. Band members joining Marsalis are Joey Calderazzo (piano), Eric Revis (bass), and Justin Faulkner (drums). They will be there September 15-18.

Marsalis is a saxophonist, composer, and bandleader. While primarily known for his work in jazz as the leader of the Branford Marsalis Quartet, he also performs frequently as a soloist with classical ensembles and has led the group Buckshot LeFonque. He has played with Lionel Hampton, Clark Terry, and Art Blakey. He joined a Japanese tour with Herbie Hancock and has had guest appearances with Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie. Marsalis was nominated for and won a 2010 Drama Desk Award in the category Outstanding Music in a Play and was also nominated for a 2010 Tony Award in the category of Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) Written for the Theatre for his participation in the Broadway revival of August Wilson's Fences. Marsalis, with his father and brothers, are group recipients of the 2011 NEA Jazz Masters Award.
