this blog thing is so much more difficult when i have a lot of thoughts swimming circles around in my brain. i may need to check if my thoughts have some sort of leg cramp. they really should be moving around in a more linear direction. anyway, i shall continue on as if i had never spoken. every time i try to write something down, i instead start quoting myself. i’m really not so vain to think that i am that quotable, but there it is. perhaps my psyche is more vain than my self-esteem would care to admit. “my mind is a mess, all chaos and stress.” see, there i go again. “i cannot see the vodka for the drink.” i am my own worst nitemare. and i don’t even drink vodka, so what’s that about? who knows. sometimes i wonder if i have multiple personalities, but then i tell myself that i don’t and we all sit down to play a nice game of gin rummy.

and so, i’m sitting here trying to decide where my priorities lie and if they are lying to me.

“Barbie Angell Uncensored” is a dazzling fusion
of poetry, comedy and tragedy

ASHEVILLE NC – Poet, playwright and raconteur Barbie Angell performs “Barbie Angell Uncensored: An Unfiltered, Uninhibited and Unapologetic Event” at 8pm Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at LaZoom Bar & Gorilla. The 90-minute show is a melange of works spanning Angell’s career, including her poetry, excerpts from her autobiographical play “Death by Sparkle,” pieces from her children’s book “Roasting Questions,” and rarely performed mature works.

A multitalented, multi-hyphenate personality based in Asheville since 1999, the always colorful Angell is recognized around town for her work as a poet, playwright, columnist, emcee, artist and fashion designer. She has been voted “Best of WNC” poet by Mountain XPress readers for 10 consecutive years, and her skills as an emcee have made her a sought-after host for local festivals and large events such as Planned Parenthood’s Condom Couture and the Reproductive Rights Rally. 

Angell has written sketch comedy, co-authored “The Kids Show: Definitely Not for Kids,” and penned one act of “Grimm’s Fairy Tales” for Montford Park Player. She is currently creating and selling upcycled clothing in her own fun and funky signature style – some of which will be available for sale at the event, along with original artwork and prints.

Equal parts stand-up comedy, poetry slam and public confession booth, “Barbie Angell Uncensored” promises to be emotional, unsettling, hilarious, and as unique as Barbie Angell herself!
