Stage / There’s a lot of stuff turning me on recently: Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84, “Without You” by David Guetta featuring Usher, Amber Heard in The Rum Diary.

Unfortunately for most of us, all three of these babies are totally untouchable.

Murakami’s new book is a 950-page-long hardcover (out of my league), that jam by Guetta and Usher starts sounding very “I’m Reminding You of Your Ex Right Now, but You Still Want to Dance With Me?” by the 43rd listen (deal breaker) and Amber just doesn’t have my cell number (it’s 1-808-DESPERATELY-URS, call me!).

Here’s something that’s a bit more within reach: UH-Manoa’s Late Night Theatre. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel’s Hot ‘n’ Throbbing brings all the boys to the yard with a one-act play that bends itself into various compromising positions. The ‘94 genre-pusher toys with pornography, violence, control, feminist erotica and sexually curious teenagers stroking the steamy line between fantasy and real life. Needless to say, for mature audiences only.

Don’t be shocked if by curtain call, you’re so bothered up that you’re bod is urging you to go out, making eye-screwy “Oh na na, what’s my name?” looks at that pretty someone in da club and flippin’ their pancakes come morning. Get eXXXcited.
