BUT DID P!NK GIVE THE TRAPEZE A TRY?
Here are some photos from last Saturday’s party honoring the film The Gymnast, which was released on DVD this week. Let’s start with star Dreya Weber, posing with a cardboard version of herself and costar Addie Yungmee:
Dreya later performed an aerial routine, which suggests to me that the party really needed livening up.
Here’s Suzanne Westenhoefer and her girlfriend. Looks like they skipped the aerial stuff and went right for the aperitifs.
Finally, here’s P!nk with Dreya. I guess Dreya is an Olympic hugger as well as an aerialist?
You can buy The Gymnast from the Logo shop. (P!nk not included.)

ROCKING AND ROLLING IN THE AISLES
I still can’t believe Sleater-Kinney is a thing of the past. Where have all the riot grrrls gone? But we don’t have to miss Carrie Brownstein too much. She has teamed up with Saturday Night Live goof Fred Armisen — not to rock your world, but to crack you up. In their most recent short film, “Feminist Bookstore,” they take on the world of slow sales, inscrutable flyers and hypercorrect politics.
This reminds me of the time my girlfriend and I were blithely browsing the shelves of the Toronto Women’s Bookstore, only to be abruptly escorted out at closing time. When the number of customers equals the number of employees, shouldn’t you do your best to make a sale before shooing? But I’m not bitter. Anyway, those in favor of Carrie Brownstein having a post-punk, way funny film career, raise your hand!
