"Behind the Blue Door: A Dr. Who-inspired Cabaret" is seeking act submissions!
Created by nerds for nerds, “Behind the Blue Door” is our sexy, silly take on the Whoniverse. We’re looking for performers (solo or otherwise) who share our love of Dr. Who. Do you carry a sonic screwdriver? Sleep with a TARDIS nightlight? Do you love the Doctor and yearn to show that love to the world through stripping, song, and/or dance? We want to hear from YOU. Our primary focus is burlesque, but we welcome proposals from all disciplines: song, dance, film, puppets, spoken word fanfic, pole dance… you get the picture. Send us your ideas!

In my virtual, flishnet gloved hands rests the production schedule for the Victorian Fetish Show, a part of the Erotic Steampunk Festival at the Little Red Studio in Seattle. Doomsday is approaching once again in Seattle, about three months after the last time. :)
In the mean time, I'm strongly considering going to BurlyCon this year, October 14th to the 17th at the Quality Inn and Suites. Are you going?

And now I'm left putting the pieces back together. But it's not all bad, the idea has a lot of meat on it bones. And this for a song that wasn't even on the short list. I even think it will work within the framework of Melody's idea. That evil, evil idea.
Are you familiar with Beats Antique? If not, you should be. On their second release, there is this little song called Roustabout. Here's an embed to a YouTube video of the song and someone having a little too much fun with After Effects. ;)
Ever since I first heard this song, it struck me as the Haunted Carnival Theme Song. The beginning of the song is all eerie and ghostly sounding, then we hear the mechanical sounds of the boardwalk clicking and ticking away, and the winner's bell ringing. The costume is something completely opposite of the "Post Apocalyptic Steampunk Strip Tease Minus the Strip Tease Because It's a Family Show". Instead of being prim and proper, this one is torn and tattered. I'm still working through ideas for possible props, with the main one being a huckster's cane.
This gives you the base framework of what I'm thinking here, but I'm not going to give much more away for two reasons. First, giving away too much spoils the fun. Second, I still need to run all of this Melody on Thursday. So it could change pretty radically until then.
