"making the world smaller" since 1994-ish

Hi Everyone,

You wouldn't believe what my life is like! This looks like a hard semester:
Monday starts at 10:30am with BU: Toastmaster (writing and reading).
Tuesday starts at 10am with Emerson. 3 classes: Connecting On-Line, Writing/Public Speaking, and a one-on-one.
Wednesday starts at 10-11 with (new- will see how they do) Northeastern with a group. And then goes to BU for a film group (what the hell, right. I have trouble remembering their names/titles. kind of a big mistak, but we'll see.)
Thursday: nothing! i mean... there is a lot to do...
Friday 11pm: (new) Northeastern one-on-one.

In other news: I have been swimming and have to get classes and working out at the YMCA.

My birthday is the 10th. Should be fun. If it doesn't snow!

Here is an exciting thing that's happening on Friday 12th at 8pm: It this show called Sleazegrinder SuperShow on WEMF Cambridge ( Ken and the crew want to have me on to talk about Dr. Sketchy's. (maybe about my stroke, Heywood Wakefield, TraniWreck and wherever else...) Will see! Please call in and helped!

So that leads us to Dr. Sketchy's Boston Sunday February 14th!!! Amazing model!!! Belle Gunz! We've been doing this for 9 years, seriously!!! I can't believe it!!! And it's Valentine's Day!!! (with something special for it!!!) check out

Come out!

OhOhOh! I forget to tell you! I've been looking for places to have Dr. Sketchy during the week. And I'm closer to getting someplace in Cambridge or Somerville ...stay tuned!

oh god, and here's another thing....
There's a lot of computer stuff that I'm dealing with, and I am so overwhelmed with the amount of work I have to do.
So, I would love help from someone who has experience working with PCs. Some sort of trade would be ideal, but i can pay if necessary! please get in touch. aliza shapiro @

Regularly Scheduled Events :

2nd Sunday : 2:30-5:30 : Great Scott is at 1222 Commonwealth Ave. Right at the intersection of Harvard Ave and Commonwealth Ave. And the T. 18+; $8 to draw, $10 to hang. All skill levels welcome!

Dr. Sketchy's is the life drawing session you dreamed of in your deviously creative art school head. Hot models with crazy costumes, sometimes genderbending antics, poses that keep your interest for hours, nice folks around you, drinks, and it's cheap. The models talk and keep you entertained, there's good music, you could win prizes for good and bad art! You don't have to be a good artist, or someone who draws everyday. Dr. Sketchy's is a great place to start back up with your practice, or to try to pick up a new creative outlet.

We start with short poses to get you warmed up and then move on to longer and longer poses, but that's about where the traditional life drawing session stops...
