Friday Sheep Miscellany

The Wonder Bread FactoryAdditional evidence that Shaw Is Where It's At: fun DC DJ and club owner (Tracks, Nation) Ed Bailey has announced plans to open a new gay dance club in Shaw. Will it be in the Wonder Bread factory near the North exit of the Shaw/Howard MetroRail station off the Sux Donkey Dix Green Line at 7th & S Streets?

While I wouldn't want to be a neighbor with the thrumming 132 beats-per-minute late into Sunday morning, The Gays in DC are in dire need of additional habitat, and it would be nice to have a club to be able to walk to. Please, do your part to help The Gays restore gay habitat in DC. Says Ed:

"It is a large-scale dance club and it's conveniently located in the Cardozo/Shaw neighborhood of Northwest D.C. We are doing our diligence to get everything in order and get everything finalized and officially stamped."

Update: my sources tell me it's not the Wonder Bread Factory, which is too bad. I was hoping for primary color polka-dot decor. And of course I know it's not Nellie's. To quote Nellie's proprietor: "Duh."

Mystery solved: dreamboat guy with dimples in black shirt is this blogger. Match the dimples and wish him a happy birthday. Cute, and he likes Star Trek too. That's totally hot.

As if standing next to a person who is text messaging wasn't boring enough, we can now document our mundane texting online on this thingy called Twitter. All the bears are doing it, OMG.

Skwurl is going away to Fire Island this weekend for the first time ever. Those bitches are gonna tear him apart. To celebrate his debut, we watched a bad copy of Black Sheep, since they're never gonna release that film in the U.S. We followed the screening with a shearing so the Fire Island sheep don't freak out at his back fur. I cried when I clipped it off, but the debutante had to be shorn.

4 of us saw Black Sheep in the theatre last night. A hoot. Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa... It was gross and funny in equal measure and the animatronic sheep were really good...

There is enough of a problem for a pizza joint to get a liquor license in DC, never mind a gay dance club!!!

Wash Blade says that it will be near the U Street metro entrance.

Lordy. Lordy. Who in their right mind really wants to know that much more about me? I often think Twitter was made for stalkers who want to like eat my skin or something. (LOL)

jimbo: you just need to head to the Bay Area to find Black Sheep playing across the bay from SF in Alameda...

I was able to see Black Sheep on PPV with DirecTV. And in widescreen!

I have to ask. Was "Black Sheep" as much fun as it looked in the youtube promo? I have a sick soft spot in my heart for movies that are so bad they're fun. We'd love a review. Inquiring minds want to know!

TooStoned will be seeing it Aug. 17th (correction to my report the other day that it'll be Aug 10th)

I've got Twatter as well but haven't plugged it onto my blog.

It is my fault Brettcajun made the jump to twitter. You just don't know the power of the dark side!

I met one of the owners Friday night (a very HOT Lebanese guy with a body that would stop bullets) it's going to be in the old Kieley's club space at 8th and Florida. The working name is Town - it will have 2 levels, so that upstairs will be Uptown and Downstairs will be... you guessed it downtown. :-)
