You better vote in the poll soon! Or write me a comment!

There are only two more days left in the current poll over there in the sidebar to your right about what Granny's next YouTube series should be about!  Please let me know what you'd like to see next, okay?

I'm definitely going to do a "Strippercise" exercise dvd, but that will probably be a separate project from YouTube.  So suggest away!  You know I love to hear from you and you give me good ideas!

And, yes:  I am still going to sit in a big frosted cake one of these days for a photo session or video.  Maybe right after I get through with the photo shoot where I'm wearing that special Easter costume I'm making.  And after the photo shoot where I'm wearing butterflies and very little else to celebrate the coming of spring!

Hmm. I wonder what's going up on GrannyPantyBurlesque channel on YouTube tomorow?

After all, it will be Friday.  And Granny Panty's "Charm and Etiquette School for Strippers" has to take a little break before the graduation video airs to allow viewers time to submit their final exam videos.

Oh, yes!  Now I remember!  Granny Panty's homage to MARLENE DIETRICH goes up at some point tomorrow!  I hope you enjoy it, because I really enjoyed making it and it has been a fantasy of mine for some time to do it.

Do you think the guy who owns American Apparel

... would take offense if he knew I'm making an Easter burlesque costume out of an American Apparel tank dress and ten yards of fringe, which I'm dyeing green?  I was in there the other day buying the dress and a couple of thongs and chatting with the nice young man who was ringing my purchase up, telling him American Apparel thongs are what I always use on stage and that they're the very best for my purposes.  He said he had a feeling a lot of strippers shop at American Apparel, because where else would you wear certain things like the aluminum foil-colored hot shorts that they sell?  I often laugh at the pictures on the American Apparel website catalog.  It's like the next generation is entirely made up of total hootchies!  And they've been running a pretty amusing "best male/female ass" contest recently, to find the owners of the derri√®res that will be their new models.

I think American Apparel should hire me as a senior citizen spokesmodel.  I can't tell you how much of their stuff I wear in real life or adapt for the stage; love the colors and simple designs.  But knowing that an elderly burlesquer is wearing the same clothes might be a buzzkill for the young hipsters!

This week at Granny Panty's Charm and Etiquette School for Strippers

How to Strip Out of Nearly Anything! 
click on the link to see the demo.

We're getting dangerously close to the end of the course!  Better catch up on your lessons, do your homework and get ready to submit your final exam video in response on YouTube.  Because if you do and I give you a passing grade on your number,  I will send you your very own personalized diploma certifying that you are a graduate of Granny Panty's Charm and Etiquette School for Strippers!

And I may even have t-shirts available to graduates for a modest cost to cover making them and postage and handling!

Your valentine is now available for viewing on YouTube!

 

Follow the link in the right sidebar to my channel!

I'm doing a live show this weekend, so it's over and out for me now until Monday.  I hope you have a lovely, sexy, romantic St. Valentine's Day, and don't do anything I wouldn't do!  That means the possibilities are practically endless -- and you can even run around in public with heart-shaped pasties on like I'll be doing on stage tonight and tomorrow night!

Put make-up on, put stockings on...

get dressed, go to do a live show and get undressed again on stage. Such is the fabulous life of Granny Panty!

I didn't put this in the poll, but what about Granny Panty's STRIPPERCISE?

You know, 1980's style, and I can wear legwarmers:)
And it can be like Jane Fonda's workout video from back in the day!
And it could be my excuse to record a heavy breathing Serge Gainsbourg/Jane Birkin-inspired song to go with it!

Hmm. What's Granny's next YouTube series going to be about, I wonder?


Please vote, okay?  You'll find a poll in the right sidebar.

I really want to know what you'd like to see next!

And I'm thinking of running a "Who Wants to Apply to be Granny Panty's Maid" contest, too.  Do you think anyone would be interested?

You know how much I love it when you play WITH me!  You're going to have a chance to submit your video in response to mine on YouTube soon, when we get to the end of "Granny Panty's Charm and Etiquette School for Strippers" here in a couple of weeks.  Or did I neglect to mention that before?

It will be Friday in a few minutes, and you know what that means!

Some time tomorrow a new two-part episode of "Charm and Etiquette School for Strippers" goes up on YouTube!  This week:  tricks and tools of the trade!  Class, don't be late!

Granny Panty responds to probing questions from her readers and viewers

Q:  "Are you a man or a woman?"
A:  Oh, that's one of my favorite questions of all time!  Can I give you several responses?

Number 1:  Yes.
Number 2:  I am a LADY.
Number 3:  I hope I am what Gerard Depardieu once said Catherine Deneuve is.  "She is the man I always wanted to be," to paraphrase from his original remark in French.
Number 4 (the l980's response):  More woman than you'll ever have, and more man than you'll ever be!  (Don't you just love that?!  It's so MEAN!  People used to say that all the time to each other in the clubs Back in the Day.)

Don't you find this to be true of yourself, too?

This question makes me think of a lovely song -- do you know it?  "For Today I am a Boy" by Antony & The Johnsons.  I prefer it to Beyonc√©'s "If I Were a Boy."

Q:  "Are you gay, straight or bi?"
A:  Again, thank you so much for asking.  I am delighted you have observed that Granny Panty is still a sexual being at her age!  The answer is, resoundingly, YES!  And it entirely depends upon who it is I am having a relationship with, thank you.  Don't you find that to be true of yourself also?

Or do you think of yourself in percentages?  Someone once told me they were 86% straight or something like that.  A numerical value on the spectrum, in other words.  I thought that was cute.

One of my young friends recently remarked, "I assume everyone is gay until they come out to me as straight."  I love that.

Q:  "Have you had any 'work' done?"
A:  Hmm.  I had my tonsils out when I was nine.  And my impacted wisdom teeth removed.  That's all there is to report!

Q:  "Are you Lady Gaga's grandmother?"
A:  I am so flattered that you asked!  I don't think so, but then again, I do have two sons -- so who knows?!  Maybe she's my bastard granddaughter.  If so, I am deeply blessed!

Q:  "Would you consider making a video where at the end you somehow end up sitting smack in the middle of a big, white frosted cake?"
A:  YES!  Absolutely!  I love this idea!  Someday you'll probably see me doing just that on YouTube.

I love answering your questions and it makes me happy to know I sometimes pique your curiosity!  Ask away, and as long as your questions are sincere and respectful, I'll probably answer them!

If Coco Chanel had designed burlesque costumes

...do you think they might have looked something like this?

I don't even have a number in mind for this costume yet.  I just wanted to make it!
