sweatin' with Santo - words first

sweatin' with Santo
Made it out to Coney Island tonight to see Santo (or Samson as he is called in the English version) and the Wax Museum. My first Santo flic. The leading lady was very very hot and several scenes featured her lovely stockinged legs. Live Mexican style masked wrestlers had been schedule but something happened and I saw them leaving as I was coming up the stairs. Another mishap is that during most of the burlesque scene between Freddie and Jason the lights were turned off and we could just barely make out the figures in the dark. The hottie who was stripping as Freddie called out for someone to fix the lights a few times and finally the DVD projector was turned on bathing them in the blue sony player on/off screen so that we could somewhat see the end of their performance. The magician had better luck with the lights and was entertaining.

Sorry, I guess I am too tired to bring the appropriate enthusiasm into this review of my evening. It was fun but yes, they have no A/C in the Coney Island museum and it was hot. Not the fun kind of hot, except for the near nakey Freddie who did her best to dance seductively in the dark.

Pray for fall.

Thanks for coming. La Geta Negra the female wrestling act cancelled the wrestling last second due to an injury. The guys you saw leaving were not the wrestling troupe. They came to see them. An electrical fuse blew during the Freddy Jason act. Old building, old wiring, overloaded electrical use in the area.

O, duh, you are right, there was not a single female wrestler among the guys I saw leaving. Too bad La Geta Negra had to cancel, both because of missing them and because their fans would likely have added an interesting element to the crowd. Although it might have seemed weird to them to see the English dubbed version of Santo.

I enjoyed myself and wish I had more weekends where I didn't have to work on Saturdays and thus had the energy to come out to Coney Island.

Hopefully we'll have a building with a/c and heat in the new Coney Island 2007. Stay tuned...
