There's A Sign On The Wall But She Wants To Be Sure...

We were off to a 17th birthday party for TLOML's niece so we drove down King St on the way to Big Sister's in Melbourne's south-eastern suburbs. We were stopped in traffic, which gave TLOML and I a chance to browse some of the signs outside King St's strip clubs.

One sign immediately grabbed our attention. It read something like this: Interactive All-Male Revue.

TLOML looked at me with a raised eyebrow. The traffic cleared and we drove on.

Later when we were away from the radar-like ears of Moe; Larry; and Curly, she asked knowingly:

"What would interactive mean in the context of a strip show, I wonder?"
"It might represent the appropriation of a term most closely associated with computer programs," I explained. "Interactive means you can influence the way the application runs, and the application will, um, respond to what you do. Hands on is a synonym for interactive."

"And in the context of An All-Male Revue?"

"Well, remember when Johnno had that job at Crystal T's ages ago? He told me in some detail how those shows used to get very hands on."

"I think I understand. But you've never mentioned Johnno having a job at Crystal T's before. What sorts of things went on?"

"Well, this is only hearsay you understand, but...I'll have to ring Johnno tomorrow to get precise details. Can you wait?"

"Yes."

And I hope you can too.

The place on the corner of Little Collins I think? Been there to see Manpower. Boring. It was not interactive.

Eagerly awaiting tomorrow's post.

My brain is in the gutter. And its descended since I read that post. Its the blogging equivalent of

"How do you keep an idiot in suspense?"

Now that was just a mindfuck! I see this is going to be like a soap opera. You're going to get to the good part and make us all tune in the next day where you'll probably drag it out for another six months.

Damn it too hell. I'm addicted.

Hmm. I'm intrigued.

And speaking of intrigued, when do we get the rest of the Ballad?

Andrew: That’s the one. Boring, you say? Hmmm. Johnno’s information re Crystal T’s in the 80s might be too. I hope not

Phish: Wilde said we are all of us lying in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars.

Shelly: Johnno’s out of town at the moment but I’ll recount his adventures as soon as he gets back.

BC: Ballad will conclude tonight.

Oh how I love the strips. I'm tipping it involves lap dances with happy endings.

Steph: You might be right about the happy endings. Deus ex machina.
