My night with Bloody Birthday's Julie Brown
No, not "Downtown Julie Brown", which everyone seems to get a kick out of asking. The OTHER MTV Julie Brown, the one with actual talent. Yes, the star of such classics as Bloody Birthday, Earth Girls are Easy and Medusa: Dare to Be Truthful performed a few live shows in NYC last weekend and I was there, poster and VHS tape in hand, to see the show and ambush her afterward.
Julie looks like she hasn't aged a day in a decade and she pulled out all her gayest hits, kicking off with "Hey Hey Hey I Wanna Be Gay" and pulling guys up onstage to perform "Girl Fight Tonight" and making male audience members sing the chorus to "I Like 'Em Big and Stupid" and "Shut Up and Fuck Me". Yes, it was a family show.
Afterward CampBlood "Special" Correspondent Chuckie and I ambushed Julie with a horde of other queens. The guys who got to her first had a bunch of her albums and Medusa DVDs (yawn!) but as she was signing them she spotted what I was holding and yelped, "IS THAT BLOODY BIRTHDAY!?" Everyone wanted to touch me. It was awesome.
Anyway, she was a doll and laughed about the movie and signed my video box and a hilarious Italian poster for my dear friend Tintorera Joe. And Chuckie even snapped a picture of me with her, but as Joe's Pub has a drink minimum and huge martinis, we were sloshed and the pic is fuzzy.
And yes, I am wearing the same t-shirt that I have worn in every pic of me on this site. It's my celebustalk good luck shirt, and it's never let me down, so you all can suck it.
