Video: Pleasuredome Cocaine Battle Scene Sappho Vs Sappho

This is my favourite scene from Pleasuredome (the other is the Drag Queens strutting down the stage looking magnificent, the opening number, the middle numbers, the closing numbers…yeah I loved it all but the Cocaine battle between Sappho and Sappho is my favourite).

This should not have been filmed but…I’m really glad it was because it’s INCREDIBLE. The short clip just doesn’t do this scene justice. Lucy was OUTSTANDING and the battle between reformed Sappho and Cocaine Sappho is quite a battle. This is where you get to see Lucy’s acting chops up close and not filtered through a camera lens (well in the live version). It’s truly a gobsmacking scene to watch live. The idea of superimposing Sappho in the leather outfit (good reuse of Lucy’s concert suit) on the giant monitors adds to the amazing scene of just Lucy on stage.

New Book: Go Girl - A storybook of epic NZ Women Featuring Lucy

Image636507681575140428

Lucy is featured in a new book called Go Girl about epic New Zealand women. Being in the same book as the legendary Nancy Wake is seriously cool. Nancy Wake was an Australian/New Zealand war hero. A true warrior. A genuine gutsy lady who went up against the Gestapo/Nazis. The Gestapo nicknamed her The White Mouse and became one of the most wanted Resistance leaders. LEGENDARY. Nancy is one of the most courageous women ever born and it’s a huge honour for Lucy to be in the same book as the legendary Nancy Wake. (I’m a World War II history nut).

Anyhoo…the book features Lucy as well (it’s a little hard NOT to include Lucy as a can-do Kiwi woman, isn’t it?)

A stunning illustrated storybook for the girls of New Zealand with a powerful can-do message!

Go Girl is a collection of true stories about New Zealand women who have done extraordinary things.

They strove for their goals.

They weren’t afraid to step up or speak out.

They blazed a trail for others to follow.

This book was written to show that YOU can join them!

Just some of the amazing women whose stories you will find in this book are Dame Whina Cooper, Janet Frame, Farah Palmer, Lucy Lawless, Kate Sheppard, Nancy Wake, Sophie Pascoe, Margaret Mahy, Lydia Ko, Merata Mita, Lorde, Rita Angus, Te Puea Herangi — and many more.

This is a book that should be on the beside table of every Kiwi girl, from age seven to one hundred and seven.
