Best of Videos from the Resistance Show Coming Soon: A Call for Requests

It's spring! Time again for the annual "Best of Videos from the Resistance" show. This year it will be held at It's a Beautiful Pizza, on Monday, May 29th, at 7pm. (It's a Beautiful Pizza is located on SE Belmont st at about 33rd.)
Yes, it's time to dust off the video archives and drag out some old favorites (or maybe some new favorites that aren't even dusty yet). The video collective cordially invites you to help us decide which videos to show. We all have our favorites, what about you?

Thank you, "Margaret." I do remember that sexy crusty kid, now that you mention it. Wonder what ever happened to him?

Of course you know, though, there are a lot of other even more fabulous videos by some other really sexy videoistas too. And not one of those *other* videoistas ever made me eat vegan dog biscuits.
