Stimulus Package

During a typical workday, you write 50 e-mails, upload photos to Facebook, and text-message about weekend plans, all while downloading music. Then, at home, you blog on WordPress about an iChat you had with your brother as the TiVo blasts.

Basically, what we’re trying to say is that we apparently need to live, eat, breathe, and shit five to 10 stimuli at once in order to survive. We even require plenty of eye candy when we par-tay, which will certainly be the case during Hillz Thrillz Productions’ fourth annual Funky Formal. The event is a to-do of monumental proportions, and lines up like this: music by Sonorous, Of the Earth, and Drunken Immortals; flaming-titty dances by burlesque performer Pyra Sutra; swerves from burlesque troops Scandalesque and La Liberata; and freaky feats by host ensemble Strange Family Circus.
