Honeytrap Heroes: The Pussycat Dolls


In 1993, Robin Antin was a struggling dancer whose CV was made up of bit parts in the "Red Shoe Diaries" and in movies like “The Wizard of Speed and Time”. She decided to take matters into her own hands and got together five of her best friends, who were tour and music video dancers for Janet Jackson and Ricky Martin, to create a dance troupe. Together with her brother, actor Steve Antin (the alledged father of Jodie Foster’s baby), she came up with the idea of a burlesque revue that looked towards Bob Fosse’s Cabaret and old dancers like Cyd Charisse for inspiration. Steve started writing dialogue for the Emcee to banter at the audience with and Robin and her dancers started buying lingerie from thrift stores and glamming it up with sequins, bows and pom poms. Robin wanted a name that was “sexy, racy and…meow!” but also wholesome, because it was all about the tease, not stripping naked – and so “The Pussycat Dolls” were born.

Alot of interesting comments on this blog, I was searching for some doctor related info and some how came across this site. I found it pretty cool, so I bookmarked. I'll really liked the second post on the front page, that got my attention.

My site is in a bit different area, but just as useful. I have a enlargement penis video related site focusing on enlargement penis video and mens health related topics.

Interested in Cooking? Need a new recipe for Thanksgiving or an unusual present for Christmas for the cook that has it all? Let me tell you about a cookbook that is older than you and me together, but still has more value that most cookbooks that are out on the marke these days. It is called America Cookery. It is the first cookbook of American authorship to be printed in the United States. Numerous recipes that adapt traditional dishes by substituting native American ingredients such as corn meal and squash are printed here for the first time, including "Indian Slapjack," "Johny Cake," and "Squash Pudding." Simmons's "Pompkin Pudding," baked in a crust, is the basis for the classic American pumpkin pie. It is awesome. I bought it and y family and friends loved and envied the sudden knowledge that I displayed and the tasty treats that I was able to make with this treasure. Thank you to the person who made it available for immediate download. Happy holidays from Selina and family.

Well I just got back from the gym and I am beat. I am currently doing some research on miniature golf equipment and stumbled across your blog. Which cracks me up really. The internet can certainly land you off base sometimes. Even though your blog is not completely related I think it is a cool blog. I have read back through the archives and lots of people make some very good points. Well I have been on-line forever it seems. I need to continue to plug away at miniature golf equipment. If you have the energy swing by http://www.golf-equipment-deals.com. I try to update my site weekly and maybe you will see something you like. I already snagged your URL and put it in my favorites. If you do not mind I will be back again. Great job!
