Group Description

Ouidah Glamour

"Mysterious men in elaborate, hand-beaded costumes, the "egungun," rise early and march through the streets with drummers -- the Benin equivalent of Mardi Gras Indians. Leaving a slavery museum in the coastal city of Ouidah, Davis spied a small car transporting a coffin. "Behind it is a primitive African brass band," he recalled. "The family is walking along in the cortege. It's a jazz funeral. I'm like, 'No way.' ""

We must be careful what we say. The wise man stays silent. The dissident man is incarcerated. The lone wolf is hunted to extinction. Only the brave and the bold will find a language that cannot be decoded.

This group is concerned with everything. Angelolatry, Babedom, Berdache. Bizutage. Bootocracy, Burlesque, Canification. Eschatology, Gagaku, Megiddo, Pedestalisation. Ponerology, Reptilian Hegemony, Subversion, Teratology, Thanatology, Uzza, Vanths, Yamabiru.

Deleted groups: Crush Queen, Loom of Language.United States History.

When joining, please declare whether you are a chairwoman, mistress, maid, maenad, myrmidon, admirer, fan or adversary.
