Stripper World Blues

Sometimes, when I’m alone, I put on six inch heels and wear nothing else and dance around in front of the mirror and do my little stripper dance.
Tori Spelling

Thanks to several who pointed me to this place. Strippers World. It is definitely a good idea to label the parts if you are unsure. “I love to be rimmed” was another hilariously labelled  ‘kini. A disheartening and depressing shop. And is that the best font they could come up with for cunt? Would comic sans have killed them? Jesus, and shouldn’t there be a fucking apostrophe as well? Aargh.

Label it!

Label it!

    Is the ‘kini label there so the gals know not to put it on backwards, or so the guys know which way to approach it?

    As a professional editor (believe it or not) I’d have to say that an apostrophe is not always necessary in “Strippers World”. It depends on the cuntext. It is a world for strippers, rather than one of or belonging to them.

    I love the self-portrait in that bottom shot, LA. Hadn’t realised you were a flasher.

    The small sign on the left above the door is interesting. “Top Waitress”? WTF?

    Now, call me cynical, but can I get wholesale top waitresses, or would I have to settle for an average waitress at those low, low prices?

    And where are the lurid yellow signs offering me savings? Or does Strippers World have low prices every day?

    And what’s with the mis-matching number on the door? I’m sure Strippers World wasn’t in business in the days I used to live in the area, so did someone craftily steal their nine in order to sabotage the business?

    So many questions.

    Even though it’s depressing in a way, I kind of like the no-nonsense functionality of it. It’s like the businesses in light industrial areas – the clients know what the shop sells, there aren’t any competitors, they know where the shop is, they don’t need fancy signs to attract them to it because it’s the place to go for the tools of the trade. The whole thing says: hens’ night sex-shoppers, adultshop is just up the road. You’ll just get technical talk and withering looks in here. (and I haven’t even tried to go in).

    And as vic points out the apostrophe is a grey area. Apostrophe implies: a world of things for strippers.
    No apostrophe kind of implies:
    In here is an entire world of strippers; nothing but strippers; nothing but stuff for strippers. There is nothing in the world and no need for anything in the world but strippers and strippers’ gear.

    One wonders why you would print the views of religious crackpots like Margaret Court. As far as I can tell, people like our Madge fall into two groups. Those that are in denial about their own sexuality, and those who find it convenient to hide their hatred and bigotry behind a veneer of religion. I don’t know whether she falls into the first group (although her laughable views on lesbians in tennis sound a little denialist to me), but she certainly falls into the latter group. Compared to her, other Perth bigots like the Men’s Confraternity seem positively delightful. Her “Families for Hatred Church” or whatever it is called is more closely related to the Jack van Tongeren style of organisation.

    It is available at the State LIbrary for listening purposes :-) And if it’s a local recording it should be in the ABC Sound LIbrary who kept all their Australian Recordings when they moved to Fielding Street – though don’t count on 6PR having a copy, they probably gave it away to a school fete.

    Dear P Nurry

    Seeing everyone’s going on about the butch lezzos and rimming poofs, let me begin by linking the Beijing Olympics with the Perth gay parade and then say that I understand it all so much that I don’t understand it.

    Just because a person is a lezzo or poof, and just because we live in a time when lezzoness and poofery is acceptable, why do they (and I’ve got nothing against them) insist on showing us their pubes and buttocks every year at a parade that I never bother going to (but still manage to know everything about)?

    Really, it’s kind of like being a hack journo writing in a weekend throwaway rag who just goes on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on about something they think they know but really don’t know anything about.

    I mean why should we, as the newspaper reading public, be subjected to such drivel?

    That uppity Cheng bitch might think she has a point when a bunch of slavs go out to beat up a few carpet eaters and poop tubers in some eastern European dive, but aren’t they asking for it when they so obviously flaunt their gear in public to that horrible music that isn’t ABBA?

    Let’s face it – there are queers and dykes everywhere (I suspect my little doggie might be one), but not all of them want to come out of the closet. And why should they? As for me, I can tell them a mile off (perhaps my doggie is the exception here) – that’s why I waited until Chris Masters had ALREADY published his book on Alan Jones and the ABC had run 100 stories to plagerise before coming out of my own closet to write my 10 page piece on the whole thing.

    I’m an older Australian who’s open minded enough to think that it all doesn’t matter. And I’m willing to write a 20,000 word blathering article – complete with lifts from other stories – to make this point.

    PS – and while I’ve got nothing against poofters, I hate the cinema of Kennth Anger, Luchino Visconti and Pedro Almovadar. I also hate the films of that hi-brow wanker Jim Jarmusch, who might not be a poof but sure looks like one….

    I can’t be arsed reading all 133 comments, but I concur with Vic Demised at the top there, as regarding the use or non-use of the apostrophe. About a month ago, the Weekend Australian Review section letters page went on for a few weeks after some stupid pedant who rejoices in the name Michael Strangeways Price picked up on the phrase “Brisbane Writers Festival” and argued that it needed one of those possessive punctuation thingeys. He was thoroughly slapped down. Ultimately the paper said that the use of the word “writers” was adjectival.

    @134 I agree, it’s adjectival.

    the apostrophe problem is simply caused by both the possessive and plural forms of ‘stripper’ taking an ‘s’.

    to illuminate any such situation, replace the word with ‘mice’

    would it be ‘Mice World’ or ‘Mice’s World’ ?

    would it be a ‘Mice Festival’ or a ‘Mice’s Festival’ ?

  138. There is no possible misunderstanding that this is not a possesive. It is a world FOR strippers. A world belonging to strippers. There is no chance that it is supposed to be adjectival or a world of plural strippers in there. Therefore it just looks stupid and wrong. Unlike my frequent spelling and grammar mistakes, it is not possible to correct with an edit.
