Re-Reading the Reg Star this week.


I can't even make this up.

"Flag Day parade in jeopardy"

It seems that the Flag Day Committee needs some cash, so one of the fund raisers is a burlesque and cabaret show.

Which is going to be held on March 15.

True. And, there's also spaghetti.

The paper says, "A cabaret-burlesque show with spaghetti, March 15."

I'm assuming you're going to EAT the spaghetti and not use it as part of the burlesque show.

But, who knows?


You should go. Why not? I'll try to find the location for you.

If you want to be involved in the planning of Flag Day, the next meeting is 5pm today at the Elks Lodge on Harry Howard Avenue. You don't have to be an Elk to attend.

GayHudson.com's Agnes appeared in the FIRST Flag Day Burlesque-Cabaret-Spaghetti benefit in 1908. They did not invite her back this year, though....we don't know why.

Also, Aubuchon Hardware store in Greenport closed this week. They said that there's too much competition. The paper mentioned Williams Lumber, Dunn Builder's Supply, WalMart, and the Tractor Supply store as its competition.

There was no mention of Rogerson's Hardware store....which is still open, but not on Sundays.

And lastly, on page two of the Reg-Star today, there was a 3/4 page article on vintage and thrift clothing stores "Secondhand fashion appeals to high-end shoppers, too"....but no mention of Hudson's own "Five and Diamond" or the "Second Show".

I don't know why....

I think "Page 2" of the Register Star is all wire-service stories... I mean, the Register-Star didn't really send someone to interview Jennifer Lopez after the birth of the twins, they picked the story up... how could you do a story about vintage fashion in Hudson and not mention Agnes' wardrobe?

What did you do to that adorable baby? I don't think it is nice when parents rent their children just so the news media like GayHudson can make vaguely amusing pictures like this. I think this needs to be legislated against. Write your Alderman tonight!

Perhaps Gayhudson.com should fund this years parade. Aggie as the grand marshall, Tippy and Rose Marie as the "celebrity" judges. Trixxie, herself marching out front leading the parade down Warren street with that "gay" dog of her's. We can start having fund raisers around town, here are a few title suggestions. The back end boys in concert starring Rear, End and ME. Remember the good old days with a glory hole on State street.

GayHudson.com IS NOT funding this year's parade. We will make a contribution to Flag Day, though.

I'm sure that the carmelized popcorn, funnel cake, and the old "lawsuit-waiting-to-happen" kiddie ride booth fees can pick up the rest of the tab.

Oh, balderdash. I'm sure the Register-Star's interview with Jennifer Lopez was really theirs. That's why the don't have the time or the money to cover the Common Council meetings.

Hey Trixxie... didn't that Diego friend of yours make it with a carnie on the Twirling Lollipop ride last year?

I think Diego WAS the twirling lollipop ride last year

The reason that Second Show and Five and Diamond weren't mentioned is that it referred to "vintage clothing for high-end customers."

In Hudson, that's pretty relative. Vintage clothing for high-end customers in Hudson are the dumpsters behind Peebles or Fashion Bug.

Five & Diamond isn't the Bergdorf Goodman of Hudson - it's the Verdura Boutique at Tiffany of Hudson.

It's all relative.

YOU are the entertainment committee! Did you sleep though it yesterday or something?
