Jacqueline loves her new face until the nightmares begin…and when the people in her nightmares begin turning up dead, Jac realizes that something sinister lurks beneath the flawless complexions and tight skin of the social elite – these women are truly dressed to kill.
Armed only with her loyal English butler, her feisty Puerto Rican maid and her six -inch Jimmy Choos, Jac must infiltrate a blood-chilling conspiracy bent on global domination, as she sings and dances her way to saving the world from certain doom.
In this January interview I sit down and talk with San Francisco performance artist Violet Utopia and discussed subjects such as art, drugs, and sources of inspiration as a modern artist in the new millenium.
Solo performance by Keith Hennessy.
This is the last show in the “Keith Hennessy’s A Queer 20th Anniversary” series. Everything I have seen has been fantastic. Keith is back and he is one of the key figures spear-heading the performance art revitalization in SF.

Resources for the Urban Mystic.
I first met Darren a few years back when he was conducting Naked Men’s Yoga in The Sunroom at Mission yoga. I generally don’t care for strenuous or sweaty classes but Darren manages to deliver both and make it a grounding and ecstatic experience.
Last year I attended his amazing week long yoga retreat in the desert at Joshua Tree National Park. An amazing experience both physically and spiritually. What impressed me most about the retreat was the way in which Darren holds a leadership role without PLAYING the leadership role. I have to say that I just plain like him as a person and respect his dedication and hard work.
Darren has a well developed website which is a great resource for information and inspiration around yoga and modern spirituality. He has written 4 very well respected books and several audio-casts which you can listen to on his website. He generally teachs at Yoga Tree, Mission Yoga and the Grace Cathedral.
“Although every aspect of life should be spiritually inspired, a mystic realizes that taking time each day to connect with spirit is the bedrock on which everything else in life is built. Without some form of daily spiritual practice, life as an Urban Mystic is impossible”.
