San Francisco Wrap-up! The #aFoxalypse2015

Can I rave a bit?

Ok.

San Francisco was great!

The Red Hots Burlesque show at Beatbox on Wednesday was fantastic. Great cast, professional venue, and fun audience. I highly recommend checking out one of their shows if you are in the Bay Area.

Thursday I mucked around San Francisco proper. Mostly at the Fisherman’s Wharf. I checked out the S.S. Jeremiah O’Brien. It’s pretty amazing how they’ve kept the ship in running order for 72 years. The thing was built to last!IMG_5923

And Sea Lions!

Then there are the Greenwich Stairs of Telegraph Hill… You know me, if it’s hard I have to try it out. Three hundred and seventy-eight stairs. Took me 10 minutes up, and after checking out Coit Tower, 6 minutes down…

And hangin with my friend at the White Horse Inn, the oldest gay bar in San Francisco!

Being wild at heart I took a drive on Friday and visited Big Basin State park then made my way over to Half Moon Bay. I have no words for how beautiful the mountains, Sequoias, and Ocean are. Here’s a few pics that may give you a sense.

SATURDAY was my big day. My first hosting of an erotic poetry open mic. We had a few poets and I peppered in my own work. The event took place at Wicked Grounds, San Francisco’s bdsm coffee joint. Me and them, nice fit eh?  I was impressed with the poetic talent on display. A good time was had by all! I also have the feeling there may be other hosting gigs in my future.

And present @Gerbilfluff with the award for best twitter poem in the #aFoxalypse contest! Congrats The Gerbil!

Learning a little blues fusion dance later that evening was something too. Hi to the ever so patient people I met and danced with into the small hours that evening! *waves* You all made my night!

Sunday I had a good chunk of time to check out a bit more of the city. Haight-Ashbury, the botanical gardens, the AIDS memorial grove, and the Golden Gate at sunset were all showstoppers in their own ways.

No words!

Add to all that coolness, my host TeaseBlossom and her partner who were warm and welcoming and I thank them sincerely. It was through their hospitality that I was able to make the trip. I hope to see them again!

So there is the wrap up for all those random travel pictures I’ve been peppering my social media with for the last week! I am by no means done performing for the summer, but I’ll be staying local. My next show is at the Mounds Theater in St Paul for the Top Drawer Burlesque Expo.

My Foxy ass will be seducing the left coast this July! San Francisco is where I’ll land on July 8th with my tail held high, but the main event will be at 7pm, July 11th at Wicked Grounds, San Francisco’s own BDSM coffee shop. Seriously, can you think of a better venue for me? There I’ll be hosting A Night of Perverse Poetry Open Mic. So if you’re in the area, bring your sexy chapbooks and dirty napkin scribbles to share, or come out to hear other peoples’ perverse verse!

You know you want to come ;)
You now you want to come 😉

She’s very intense. There’ll be more soon.

Anyway, she’s also got these amazing corsets, of which, she’s taking pics for her etsy shop:

And one of her models isn’t going to show… so..

THIS HAPPENED!

Hehehehe! Because I’m Fox hot in any gender 😉

Some feel as a butch woman, that wearing a dress or looking typically girl pretty devalues my butch cred. But that’s the same trap of devaluing the feminine. See, men and women will be equal only when typically masculine and typically feminine styles and looks are totally acceptable for both genders.

And fuck yeah Van Gogh!

Valentines Day Weekend Foxy Hijinks

Last weekend was so epic I have to share!

The annual Kieran’s Erotic Poetry Slam by Wordsprout and Button Poetry was an excellent way to kick off a sexy weekend! Ok, so I didn’t get past prelims, but I looked cute doing it 😉

I love that fucking microphone. It gives me needs, and poetry feels.

Friday I travelled up to Fargo to be a part of Bad Weather Burlesque’s Fatal Attraction Valentine’s Day show. This show was a stunner! Filled with elegance and a dash of sexy geekiness!

Who had the quick reflex to acquire me and lend me his stage in Grand Forks for an impromptu surprise performance at B.J. Armani’s Cabaret on Saturday night!

Grand Forks people are awesome and though I don’t have many pics from that show yet, check out my Fox Smoulder Fans Facebook page  for updates. If you have a pic to share, post and tag me and you may end up on the fan page too! They raised a ton of money for the Wounded Warrior program, which if you haven’t checked it out, you should do so, because they do a lot of good work for injured veterans.

After thanking everyone and packing up, I was off to drive through the night. I had to get home, you see, there was a special event I dearly wanted to take in….

Cary Elwes was to appear at the Mall of America Theater after a special showing of the Princess Bride!

So Sunday my fanboi persona emerged and after a two hour nap, I was in line, hoping to be one of 300 people to get in:

And in I did get!

*squee* (Yes fanbois squee!)

And I present the man responsible for the smirk a 12yo Fox practiced in the mirror to flash to girls while getting things off of high shelves for them… with his eyes closed. BUT that makes this an excellent addition to my blurry, badly lit cell phone pics of very cool famous people and me collection!

Cary Elwes and Fox… He thinks my name is cool, *squee*

The Ice bucket challenge and my mother

When I did my ice bucket challenge video I opened up my pants to reveal my Batman boxers.

I am Batman
I am Batman

Because everyone knows super heroes wear their costumes under their street clothes,

My Mom’s response in the comments:

“Is this porn? or stripping? In which case, you should be making money not supporting other’s causes. No, I’m not putting you down, I love it. I’ll bring some ice water for your triathlon on Sunday. …Mom

Oh Mom:

There was a time when I was skinny as a post and you thought I was fat,

You had a breast reduction when you were older but chided me for my chest being flat,

When I came out to you and you said Satan had possessed my soul,

And now you are saying you love that I may work wrapped around a pole?

Update: My mom gave me a check to send on to WARONALS.COM! I did another challenge to bring attention to War on ALS because I am a triathlete and I learned about Jon “Blazeman” Blais in 2005. He was diagnosed with ALS in May of ’05, finished the Hawaii Ironman in September of ’05. Unable to comet any longer, he was in Hawaii to cheer on a competitor named Brian Breen in ’06 and by ’07, Jon had passed on. So this challenge is to support War on ALS, the foundation set up in his honor.

I also challenged on Allison Moon, Sierra, and Patricia Tallman

On another note, I’ve gotten in a couple tangles with people about the ice bucket challenge wasting water…

Seriously, every one knows damn well there is no link between people without clean water and this challenge. It’s not drying out aquifers, or shutting off water to homes in Detroit, or draining reservoirs, but here: http://www.detroitwaterbrigade
or 100+ ways to conserve water Those links will get people started on a path to real water conservation efforts, rather than going online and poking at people who are just trying to do some good.
