THE BIG NEWS: LA CARMINA TO CO-HOST TOKYO EPISODE OF ANDREW ZIMMERN’S BIZARRE WORLD TV SHOW ON TRAVEL CHANNEL!
So… I’ve been hinting at an out-of-this-world announcement, and I wasn’t pulling your leg. It’s such a doozy that I can’t believe it’s happening… but it is.
In October, I’m being flown to Tokyo… to be a guide and co-host for several outrageous segments… of Andrew Zimmern’s TV show on Travel Channel, Bizarre World!
It’s no secret that I’m a Travel Channel fanatic (remember our Goth recreation of Anthony Bourdain’s Tokyo episode?). Andrew Zimmern has one of the channel’s most popular programs, Bizarre Foods, in which he roams the globe to gulp down eyeballs and other strange meals. His new show, Bizarre World, is even cooler — because Andrew explores weird subcultures and cultural oddities in addition to food.
So how amazing is that I — and more importantly, my spooky friends (above) — get to be part of the action?
I can’t reveal everything we’ve planned… but will it involve decadent dress, cyber/Goth/fetish nightcrawling, takeovers of wild theme restaurants (like in my book), and feasting on the parts of a certain large beast? Ohhhhh yes!
If you want a preview of our ghoulish cross-dressing antics, you can watch our Death Cookbook, Mad Hatter, Midnight Mess, and Wizard of the Opera videos on my YouTube channel. Travel Channel was charmed by my book, Crazy Wacky Theme Restaurants (none of this would have occurred if my publicist didn’t send them a copy — thank you!). It would be great if you could add my book to your wish-list, and I think you will enjoy the cute maid cafe photos too.
Life is insane right now… right after the Travel Channel adventure, I’m off to book signings and media appearances in several US cities (I will announce locations and dates soon). I hope to see you there — and I will dutifully report on all the Tokyo madness, promise. Thank you for all your support — without it, none of this would have been possible!
