Roller Derby on King of the Hill

Skating with the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls

The new flat track Rocky Mountain Rollergirls have a story about their league in the Boulder Weekly.

Catherine Mabe, aka Jayne Manslaughter, the Rollergirls founder, has assured me via e-mail, "We've got a set of pads and rental skates with your name on them. Don't be scared—there's no fear in roller derby." I must admit I am mildly frightened. I have visions of muscular girls with crazy eyes and spikes on their skates. But hey, I've been to a few GWAR shows in my day and always come out all right, so what harm could a little roller derby do?

Still Bulldoggin'

Susie Bright on Gannon/Guckert:

I am convinced Bulldog got into the press corps because someone was deeply in love with him, i.e, with the fantasy he provides. Others in the game saw what he could be used for. Jeff's client wanted more of Jeff, he wanted preferential status, he wanted promises. Gannon, like any pro with a big fish on the line, was growing weary of diamonds and furs.

A mature hooker wants something that will lead to independence; like property, inheritance rights, or a new career. The ultimate way to win your hooker’s favors is by offering something that gives them the same kind of independence that you, the civilian, possess.

There is no way that Gannon has retired from Bulldoggin’. Sure, his cover was blown, but now all the closet stud chasers in DC know how tight he lap-danced in the seats of power. He must be busy. You’re not going to be able to reach him by his web site anymore, because Jeff's little black book is completely filled by word of mouth. There’s gotta be a waiting list and a velvet rope as thick as his dick.

haiku by kinki

my dog's daily trips
to the tree i planted made
a lovely bonzai

our wedding night
lotus blossom views her prize
and is not smiling

she wants to show me
the little man in the boat
i wait by the lake
