I am giving away free poetry Ebooks on my website. Most of the poems were written either in or about Bloomington. Check them out. If you don't like them, then just delete the file. They are in Adobe Acrobat .pdf format.

PSA - HENNA-WEEN! [22 Oct 2009|09:40pm]


What: A Henna House Party
When: Saturday, October 24th
When?: 2 to 6 PM
Why: Henna is beautiful, safe and Dark Side Tribal needs your help!
Where: 4620 South State Road 446, Bloomington, IN 47401

This Saturday from 2PM to 6PM The House Of The Rising Moon will be open for a Henna-ween mini-hafla! 100% of proceeds/donations will go toward all troupe members attending the March 2010 ATS skills certification (which means our goal is somewhere shy of 4K). Spooky designs will be featured, but don't let that limit you! Get something fancy for Halloween night this year!

This is the first in a series of Henna Haflas. We will be presenting at least one hafla per month in order to raise money for the skills cert, so if you've always wanted henna from me now is your chance! Plus, with your donation you too, can be part of the theater!

The House of The Rising Moon is located here:


No RSVP necessary, henna starts at 5 dollars per "design I can cover with the palm of my hand".

Henna will be provided by yours truly - and coincidentally I have 16 years experience working with henna. Those of you who have attended the IU Culture Week anytime in the last three or four years have seen me there (I'm the weird chick in full costume + turban). Henna lasts anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks, is safe, non-toxic (I NEVER use "black" henna) and mixed by me in my kitchen. Any questions? I can be reached here: darksidetribaldance@gmail.com

Garage Sale Today! (repost w/ flyer) [11 Jul 2009|06:41am]

Come one, come all to buy all of our stuff! Two gals are moving across the country and cleaning out many, many closets and drawers.


small appliances
books books books
clothing (mostly women's sizes 10 - 18, some great vintage)
housewares/ kitchen gear
dishes (including a full, never used set of dishes for 8)
coffee tables
end tables
book and cd shelves
small appliances (small food processor, blender, etc.)
small pet supplies (including sm. pet carrier used once)
manual (reel) lawnmower
belly dance costuming
craft supplies

...courtesy two nerdy, ever-so-slightly hip twentysomething couples skipping town and downsizing.

702 West 4th Street (at Fairview, two blocks west of Rogers), 7 am until we're too tired and sunburnt to stay out anymore.

Smells like a change of scenery and/or desperation to be rid of our gently used, loved items.

Please help the Dearborn County shelter dogs!! [29 Apr 2009|09:31pm]


Time is running out for cherry....whistle.....cricket.... and dozens of dogs in Dearborn County.

"We're so over crowed right now...we're at the point here, where somebody's going to have to be going," says Dearborn county animal shelter officer Lisa Harrison.

They need your help, and without it these big eyes and wagging tails will be gone forever...put to sleep. And shelter director Ann Averill says that's not what she wants.

"We really don't want to euthanize any of them if we can help it," Averill says.

But soon that won't be a choice and even this week some have already been put down. Recently the shelter saw a 30 percent increase in the dog population. Some picked up on the side of the road...others simply left outside.

"We find them tied to the trailer and just roaming around outside the shelter. Our numbers are defiantly up," Averill says

A new addition to the shelter is Venus. She is a yellow lab mix and was recently abandoned and needs a great home. "She is an excellent dog, she makes a great pet for any family, she seems to like kids...she's house broken," Harrison says

The process is fun and even easy on the wallet.

Adoption fees are just forty dollars. If the dog is not spayed or neutered, the shelter will pay for the procedure at one of the local veterinarians. Another perk, the shelter is running a special where they'll give you a brand new leader leash. You can even bring in your other pets for a meet and greet.

The shelter is also in need of all donations, including dog and cat food, litter, hay or straw for bedding and cash donations to help with medical expenses.

The Dearborn County Animal Shelter is located at 11681 County Farm Road, Aurora, Indiana 47001 or you can visit the website at http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/IN186.html

PSA - AsainFest this Saturday. [28 Apr 2009|11:50pm]

The IU Asian Cultural Center in cooperation with the City of Bloomington will be hosting Asianfest this Saturday from 10 to 12 noon at the Farmers Market, 401 N. Morton St. There will be cultural performances, crafts and info table, and other fun activities such as drawing caricatures and applying henna. While these activities are going on outside the Showers Plaza, there will be cooking demo and art exhibit inside the Showers Atrium.

I will be providing henna, free of charge. I should be fairly conspicuous but if you're not into henna there will be lots of other fun things to do and see in addition to the regular Farmer's Market. Enjoy!

Teak queen-size platform bed + 2 nightstands [13 Nov 2008|08:00pm]

Modern style ... low, simple headboard and clean lines.  Most of it is solid teak, except for parts that don't show, like the slats and support that holds up your mattress.  No mattress included.  The headboard only sticks up maybe 6" above where the top of your pillow would be, and is essentially a big box that's about 6" deep so you could put your clock or lamp or phone on it if you wanted ... but then there are also two matching nightstands iincluded:  nice large-ish ones with a single drawer but a large shelf above it and a small shelf below.   Each big enough for a lamp, an alarm clock, a phone, a stack of books and magazines and more hotwheels cars than you'd really rather prefer to have right next to your bed.

I wish I'd thought to take photos before we took the bed apart, but I wasn't smart enough to do that.  It's something of a puzzle, putting the bed together (the nightstands are ready to go), but it's that good Scandinavian Design stuff, well-designed and solid.

They're not in perfect condition, but damned good.  My husband just wants them outta the garage and would probably almost pay someone to take them, but I'd like us to get *something* for them, because they're good solid pieces of furniture, and teak ain't cheap.

Available for pickup on the southeast corner of Bloomington:  you bring a truck (or van or SUV or whatever) and I'll help you load it up.  None of the pieces are too heavy for two reasonably strong-backed adults.

So make me an offer, or whatever.  lucimama at gmail dot com.

Local Dance events - FYI [12 Nov 2008|12:02pm]

Hello all - here's some information about some local dance events coming up. Cut for length and courtesy.

Dark Side Tribal Presents: HIPNOTIC - Tribal Belly Dance from ChicagoCollapse )

There is ONE spot left for the Turkish Drop workshop and if you aren't a dancer - come to the gala show! It's a stupid cheap price - 10 at the door and 8 with a student ID and you'll get AWESOME wrapped up in shiny bits, kucchi jewelry and sparkly make up. There will be many of your local favorites - Dark Side Tribal, Different Drummer - and many talented dancers from all over. So get off your butt, grab a friend or three and come hang out with us!

Second: This weekend Dark Side Tribal is proud to be a part of the 3rd Annual Wellness Expo's Healing Sounds Concert. More information may be found here: http://www.indianaholistichealth.net/wellnessexpoconcert.htm

We've prepared a fantastic veil piece along with a dynamic bit of fast ATS improv and you should be there. There will be storytelling, dance, flute music and other kinds of win.

Thanks for your attention!
