It’s happening. Fifty Shades of Grey is being made into a movie. It’s supposed to start filming on Monday, right here in Vancouver.
Last week I saw a girl on the bus the other way with audition sides. The top page read, INTERIOR – Christian Grey’s Office. My first thought: fuck, this is really happening. My second thought: why didn’t I get an audition?
Tonight I’m having a comedy protest Say Wha?! Readings of Deliciously Rotten Writing show at Hot Art Wet City where I will highlight the horribleness of the Fifty Shades series.
I’ve invited three very talented and funny people to read the most popular sex scenes from the books: poet and dress-wearer Dina Del Bucchia, musical comedian Shirley Gnome, and The Unstoppable drag queen Conni Smudge.
It’s going to be a very fun night. Way more fun than the hours I spend reading that garbage. I READ IT SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO.
You do not want to miss this show. I will never do it again. Also, Scout Magazine chose it as one of the 10 Things You Should Absolutely Do this week in Vancouver.
