I am looking to get as many Time Warp audios as I can to make a mix tape for a freind. As many versions as possible. Right now I have:
The movie soundtrack
The New Broadway soundtrack
Dance Mix from a singer named Damien
The Roxy cast
I want a few more, especially the German recording. Can people send me audios of other versions, if u have them? Even if it is in another language.

12:32PM - Better Con Review
Plane ride was OK, I slept most of it. Got to Vegas around 1pm. Ran into JD (the girl). It was nice to chat with someone I knew b4 actually getting to Vegas. At the airport we found out it was cheaper to split the cost of a Limo to the Hotel than it was for a shuttle. So we arrived in Style. Good stuff.
Casino in the Lobby of the Hotel. Which was great.
Met up with freinds, and we shared a room for the weekend. They bought buds from someone on the street which turned out to be a peice of the yellow pages that was pissed on and looked convincing.
I found a little later on that day. We ate at the Riviera buffet which wasnt very good. and we gambled quite a bit. Party at the pool all nite and meeting new people, as well as the people Ive met at previous conventions. The parties were intence and I ended up staying up all nite.
Busiest day of the con for me.
We did a run thru of the preshows, then some touring around Vegas and more Gambling. Preshows started and I was the 1st one on. I did my Paradise preshow as requested by the con committee. Well, the audience fuckin loved it. There was this Huge eruption of applause with a standing ovation, that I didnt expect, and it lasted quite some time. I loved it.
Then up to my room to shower and change and redo my makeup and hair.
Back to the convention hall to do FBC preshows.
Turns out we did a preshow that NYC did last year at the con. I feel horrible about it, but I didnt see the preshows last year because I was changing.
My preshow (Mr. Jailer) looked great, I was told. All the props worked, and came apart as I hoped. Ruthie fell in the middle of one part, but it looked like i forced her away and pulled her back. People told me that that part looked so convincing, and they almost thought she actually fell. I told them of course they thought so, we work well together.
Jons preshow was awesome but AJ threw Jonathan so hard that he sliced open his knee. Oh, and for those who dont know this: Jon from security looks incredibly hot in his underwear.
The other casts did only one preshow, and we did 3...I wonder why that happened.
Pink Invaders were right b4 us and they did Gay Bar. Which was Frank and Brad with huge fake DONGS hanging out of their underwear and they spent the entire preshow giving each other hardcore blowjobs. Gagging, spitting, chocking, deep throat bj action. It was soooo hot and all I could think of is how much I wanted to be that dong. Then we went up and I did our preshows with a huge chubby, I wonder who noticed.
Then after that we finally got ahold of some good buds, yay.
Then I got ready for Shock Treatment. I was ready and went down just to find out they started b4 midnite and I missed my biggest scenes. I cried in a corner and was very very upset. At one point the DVD stopped and there was dead time. I walked onto the stage with a cigarette in one hand and a drink in the other and announced that I had made it. Got a small applause. It was funny to me. But I did the remainder of the movie and can now say that I did it. Yay.
More all Nite Parties and Gambling.
Walked the strip, had a good buffet, got really High and then went to my room and got into Columbia PJ gear. Went to the cashman theater for pre rocky fun. I entered the costume contest, just for the sake of it. They thought my hair and glittery jammies were wonderful. I didnt win, but I didnt expect to.
There was a baby there dressed as Riff. They took a picture of me holding him. I hope I can get a copy of that soon. Also a 5 year old girl dressed as Columbia. Simply adorable.
The show was amazing. They had everything. The sonic transducer, the thing from the sky that spills liquid into rockys tank, a sawhorse, a real jukebox, averything you can imagine.
Also, when rocky started it was supposed to be black and white until riff and mags kick open the door in Time Warp and then it was to explode in color. Well they decided to show that version of the movie. And they hired professional makeup artists to take the characters plaing during the B&W scenes and make them look like they are B&W as well. It was amazing. I was soooo pleased.
I came out for a bitch scene and I got a great pop from the audience that I didnt expect. Then I overheard people talking about it later at a party. a few different people. I only did one small scene and it got the attention of people, enough to bring me up later. That felt really good.
Back to the hotel and parties.
Final day, we went to the closing lunch and found out it was at a trekkie resturant and the 4 of us got up and went to the buffet upstairs. After we ate we went back down to trekland to say our goodbyes.
Went to an indoor carnival and circus aboove the casino. It was fabulous and I accidently dumped margarita on a 5 year old girl. It was hilarious.
Best Con I've been to yet.
11:05AM - Vegas
The Con was awesome.
I did my preshow (Paradise by the Dashboard Lights). It went over very very well. FBC did 3 preshows. Mine was Mr. Jailer from CryBaby. It looked great from what I hear. We accidently did a preshow that was done my NYC last year, unfortunately, I didnt see them last year, so I was unaware.
Shock Treatment started early so I missed my 1st few scenes as Vance.
The All Star show was amazing. I did bitch scene Columbia with a red glittery mohawk.
Things made me very Happy. I love the Rocky Community. I loved walking around the casino in my underwear. Everyone was so nice, and I was sooooooo pleased with the preshow my Pink Invaders.

11:52AM - Con
Friday the 23rd: My Birthday
Went to CT and parked the car, and got on the commuter rail to NYC. We had a fun time and laughed alot. As soon as we get to New York, we decided to take the train to the hotel, and 1st thing we did was lose Jorge. And on the subway at that. When we found him, we got back on another train and headed to the hotel. It wasnt as hard as I had expected. We got to the hotel and settled our things, and all decided to go to eat. So for my 1st birthday meal in New York, we went to HOOTERS. Me, AJ, Lisa, Jorge, Brian, Alex, and Ruthie. Diva bought me 2 pitchers of Sangria. The slutty girls all sang to me, a cute lil birthday ditty they have. Some of the girls had small boobage and I felt like sueing for false advertizing. But then I had a taste of their wings and forgot all about the tits. Then Back to the hotel to get dressed for the International Rocky Party. I put on my gold leiderhosen, my yodeling hat with feather, bif gold sox, and boots. I looked pretty good, and people all over seemed to greatly enjoy it. I was very happy with how it turned out. The party was fun, the hor dourves was yummy, and the booze was expensive. All in all, I had a fun time. Then Shock Treatment. I wasnt too interested, and I went away to frolic and meet people. As well, as change into something way more comfortable. After the show, people decided to go to the NYC midnite showing of Rocky, and I wasnt too interested in that. Some people went to walk the city in the pouring rain, also not interested, and some went to CBGB's, and guess what? Not interested. So I ended up alone on the nite of my bday, and I decided to go for a walk after the rain let up. I ended up going to a girl peep show. Yes, I know I am a gay boy, but it was funny and only a quarter. Then I walked back to the hotel and went to sleep.
Saturday the 24th:
Got ready for the costume contest. I dressed as half Eddie and half Columbia. It was a hit. So many people thought it was awesome and that made me happy. Unfortunately they decided to do the contest differently this year. Their was no original costume contest. Had I known that I wouldnt have worn that. I woulda worn my Columbia costume only. Then they made everyone do a little challenge, assosiated with their character. SO nothing was based on what you were actually wearing, but how well you could do the challenge. Oh well. The FBC preshows went up and they went extremely well. I did paradise by the Dashboard Light. I was so out of breath, but it went damn well. I ran off so fast that I didnt find out til later that I had gotten a standing ovation. I have never gotten one before so I wish I coulda seen it. But I had such a fast change for the next preshow that I had to go. I changed into the dog costume and we did Discovery Channel. It looked great. I had so much fun being the lead dog in it. Jumping around stage like a fool. Then we all went to eat at one of the 100 subway resturants that are in NYC. Then back to the hotel to change for Leshez Moi preshows. Got dressed as a cheerleader and headed to the hall. They went over well. People seemed to love them, but I felt very off and was upset at my performance. After it was over I grabbed my shit and stormed back to my room, very upset. I apparently ended up missing some incredible stuff. It had to do with the fact that we all had never once performed as a group before. We just learned seperately and did it. I went to change, and ended up having to leave my makeup on my eyes. Faulted by the beautiful eyelashes I didnt want to remove and them put back on. So I put on boy clothes and everyone took me to a real bday dinner at the resturant I wanted to eat at the most: Stardust. The waiters/waitresses sing all throuhout the resturant. The same dinner group plus Alex K and Crystal took me and it was great. They learned we were Rocky People and played Time Warp. Well we all got up and danced around the resturant like the fools we are. Then our waitress, knowing of my bday, took me to the center of the resturant on a stool with a spotlight from above and sang "Let me entertain you" from Gypsy. While feeding me whipped cream (as a reminder I still had Columbia Makeup on my eyes. Apparently my entire head turned red, from Blushing. Then the whole resturant sang me Happy Birthday. After dinner we went to get ready for Rocky. I got in Columbia gear. It came out sooo good. I dont think Ive ever looked so damn good. My makeup was on point and since I lost weight I looked great in my costume. Scott James from Vegas was my Eddie, and boy was I happy. He was REALLY good. Lifts were amazing. Ive never felt so light. He tossed me around like a ragdoll. We did the side side lifts, and Ive never done that b4. I was simply amazed and happy. Then when he died, I did my horrid Columbia screams, and the audience loved that. They laughed and pointed and it was wonderful. Then off to change for floorshow. My costume looked great, I was happy with my makeup, and the performance went off without a fault. When my tits popped people laughed like crazy. And a few people told me later it was cool, because of the accuracy that girls arent allowed to do. The we took pictures and headed back to the hotel. We went to a party, which wasnt toooo happening, so we went to our room and left the door open and wited to see who would show up. We ended up with 8-10 people showing up and we all got trashed. They brought the booze which was very nice. Then through our window from across the hotel, we got an invite to another party. Very Cool. The people were nice, and welcoming. Then I went back to my room and a bunch of us crashed there.
Sunday the 25th:
I didnt participate in any of the sunday activities, we just headed out.

11:24PM - The Con
I just got home from vacation. I wanted to say that I had a wonderful time at the con and everything seemed to go pretty well.
I did my paradise preshow people seemed to enjoy it.
Also did the cheerleaders preshows. I felt off, but it still went ok.
My international costume (Swiss Rocky in Leiderhosen) came out pretty good.
My lifts with Scott from Vegas were Awesome! He is a very strong man, to fling me around like that. And floorshow was great! I was very pleased. Oh, and people cracked up at my Columbia Screams when Eddie dies.
There is more to input, and people to shout out, but Ill get to that tomorrow, its late and I just came home.

4:09PM - Con sooon!
Rocky Horror Convention is on in ONLY 11 days! How exciting!
How many of you guys going???
Saturday, June 1, 2002
7:45AM - That'd be right..
You're from Brisbane, right? Of course.
Ms. littlegreenfrog is from Tassie, and I'm from right at the bottom of Vic. So it's a fairly large outlay of money for us to even get to the convention. :(
You'll be in one of the performances, eh? Let us know all about it, okay! :) We'll have to drop by and say hi!
I can't believe that there's an actual convention on. I asked Lia if she'd want to come over to visit me and we could go to a performance of it in Melbourne (which I still haven't been able to find one of! And ideas?) and while searching for that, I came across the Rocky Horror Down Under site. Whew - I'm glad I did!
And yes. I get too excited. Especially at almost 8am. ;)

Hello you wild and untamed things ;)!!!
Of course I'll be at the convention! It's great that something like this is finally happening in Brisbane - It's going to be awesome :) I am the Brisbane Rocky Horror cast's Trixie [0o0ooh] so make sure you guys come and say hi as we'll be performing at the con:) It's great to see a LJ community dedicated to the con. It will be nice to meet more rocky fans, you guys seem cool!
8:46PM - Tickets On Sale!
Bookings can be made here.
Convention & Screenings: $20 per person
Screenings only: $10 per person
I must have read that wrong the first time. I thought it was $20 for the convention and then $10 for the screenings. Damn, that's a bargain!
Lia, I need to know if you want me to send a form in for the both of us - save the hassle of us sending two payments in. If you can get the dates that your American friends are coming over, I'll start looking at getting time arranged off work for the week/two weeks surrounding the 13th. We can start checking out prices to get up there - but I think we'll have to leave booking accommodation until about a month beforehand, just to see what deals are on at the time. Yay! :)
And hello to our new members: killgeekgirl and littlenell! :) Are you two going to the convention this year? Where are you from? C'mon.. share your Rocky love with us. *grins* (And admit how damn gorgeous Tim Curry is in fishnets!)
Oh, and no-one be afraid of contacting Kristian (who does the bookings, and organises the convention). He's a fantastic guy! :) He's got heaps of information to share and is just a great guy to talk about Rocky Horror with! :D
Gah - Lia, must remember! Blankets for the screenings! Sheesh, we're going to need to take biiig bags with us to the convention! Ooh, which reminds me.. I must start looking at a costume! Time to go play now.
