Midnight Insanity Puts the [Rocky] Horror in Halloween

Categories: Film, Long Beach
Midnight Insanity, the presenters of The Rocky Horror Picture Show screenings in all their toast-tossing, rice-dropping, being-it glory, recently returned to the Art Theatre in Long Beach after a five-year, renovation-induced hiatus. That's renovations to the historic theater, not Midnight Insanity members. Although . . .

Anyway, the triumphant return brings with it an all-new Halloween show Saturday night.

Now, I could describe for you the Midnight Insanity experience, but our former contributor Victor D. Infante did so brilliantly in "Time Warp, Interrupted."

(And bringing up Victor allows me to plug his Wednesday poetry reading at the Ugly Mug in Orange with the bride he married in the middle of the Weekly newsroom, Lea C. Deschenes. Visit the event's Facebook page for more information. They'll also be at the Barnes & Noble at Marina Pacifica mall in Long Beach on Nov. 8. Go here for info on that gig.)

And she STILL remembers doing "The Time Warp."
Midnight Insanity performed at the Balboa Theater in Newport Beach from 1988-1991, then moved the following year to the Art. They've bounced around since the renovation and a former management team forced their departure from the Art.

The Midnight Insanity Halloween show coincides with the zombie walk presented by another bizarro Art Theatre movie-as-event provider, Mondo Celluloid. Tickets to Rocky Horror are $11, and while you don't have to dress up, dance and laugh your ass off at the antics, you may feel as out of place as a sweet transvestite (from Transexual, Transylvania) at a church picnic if you don't.

The Art is at 2025 E. Fourth St., Long Beach.

ChaLEAN Extreme provide: Women May Feel More Pain Than Men DoThe question has been around as long as “he said/she said” has been a phrase: Basically, who is more capable of handling pain?Though not likely to be the final word, new research shows that women may feel pain more intensely than men do, especially for specific types of pain.Researchers mined electronic medical records from more than 11,000 men and women. They showed that across 47 diseases and painful conditions considered in the study, women said they felt significantly more pain than men in 14 of them.Turbo jam:Treat the Person, Not the GenderBut blanket statements about treating pain don’t apply. “The new findings do not suggest that all women feel more pain than all men and need to be treated more aggressively," Fillingim tells WebMD. “Each person should be treated based on their symptoms, not their gender. We still need to individualize treatments for pain.”Differences between men and women may be the result of cultural, hormonal, and/or anatomical issues, he says. At the end of the day, it is not the “why” that matters: “A person’s pain report is not something physicians should be making judgments about. We need to accept the idea that what patients are reporting is real and respond accordingly. Pain is an invisible and subjective symptom,” he says.For more information:http://www.p90x2dvdshop.com/bl...How Much Exercise Is Enough?Before you make a decision on how much exercise ( like Insanity Workouts e.g )you need, you should have a good idea of your exercise goal or goals: Are you exercising for physical fitness, weight control, or as a way of keeping your stress levels low?"How much exercise is enough for what?," asks David Bassett, Jr., PhD, a professor in the department of exercise(following Insanity The Asylum), sport, and leisure studies at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville.For general health benefits, a routine of daily walking may be sufficient, says Susan Joy, MD, director of the Women's Sports Health Program at the Cleveland Clinic.If your goal is more specific — say, to lower your blood pressure, improve your cardiovascular fitness, or lose weight — you'll need either more exercise or a higher intensity of exercise. So figure out your goals first, then determine what type of exercise will help you meet them and how much of that particular exercise you'll need to do.For more information:http://www.p90x2dvdshop.com/Lose Weight With The Best Weight Loss SupplementsP90X2 Nutrition Friendship Suggestions:Appetite SuppressantsAppetite suppressants allow you to lose weight by releasing brain chemicals to improve mood and decrease appetite.Carb-BlockersCarb-blockers cause you to lose weight by preventing ingested carbs from turning into molecules of fat and by forcing the body to use its existing fat reserves to satisfy its daily energy needs.Fat BurnersYou no longer have to have to rely on exercise alone to lose weight.
