Macworld postscript

Part one of two...

Apparently the Market Street Cinema (MSC) (a local strip club) was offering half price admission or even free admission during certain hours with your Macworld badge and somebody was asking if they'd missed anything, since I mentioned I went to Macworld and I am presumed to have some expertise in the whole naked women department.

The short answer is "probably not".

The long answer is that while my direct experience is pretty minimal I do work with strippers occasionally... actually I'm not sure if that's true. A few of the models on here have at some point worked in such a club, but I don't think at the time I shot them. But between gossip from them and the occasional bachelor party invite I do have a basic knowledge of the "locals clubs" (less so about the touristy places on/around Broadway). And MSC used to be known somewhat affectionately as "the cesspool"... before it went downhill. Let that one sink in for a bit. There was one gal there that I'd loved to have worked with - in addition to being known as a performance artist she did a wonderful contortion act at MSC - but last I heard she was on the run in South America hiding out from Homeland Security. That's what the San Francisco Chronicle said at the time anyway. And remember, those were the good old days and she was the best thing they had going.

So I dunno, it's possible that it's somehow perked up, but it seems to me that if you have a limited amount of time in the city probably there are better things you could be doing. (Try Crazy Horse if you really are focused on the naked women thing).

Part two of two...

They're actually giving out free expo registrations for MacWorld 2010, I think because the show may be killed if Apple's abandoning it, and they want to go to companies and say, "See, we have so and so many people registered already!". You don' tneed a code or anything, you just need this URL. Don't blame me if they send way too many updates - they do seem a bit email happy.
