17th Anniversary of Erica Hooper's Xmas Eve Strippers' Ball Chat!
#1



I had thought Erica's first interaction with fans was when she had posted a thread saying "Hi," but actually, she was lured into making her presence known when someone asked a question about...surprise, surprise - stripping! Wink

The incidental music just keeps getting better & better ... Does anybody know where the music that Jenny danced to in "Flying Lessons" came from?

So anyway, four minutes later, she started her first thread; I've edited down a lot of the responses though.....

It's great when people involved with the show interact with fans. I enjoy it because it lets me know that they're greatful that we watch. Plus, it's just always fun to watch tv and think, "hey, I've talked with them!"

I'm guessing this was posted on the board at the official site, right? Did you keep copies of all that for some personal archive? That's a great idea!

Yep, although she has made several appearances here at SF-Fandom, although not in about a year or so.

But as for the message board thing....psssttttt........don't tell anyone, but it's still preserved in its entirety here - you just have to choose the option "Show all topics" rather than the default, which is "Show topics from last 20 days."

Hi all I wish I was here sooner I just found this forum. i would ahve asked for that interview. I do a lot of them for several fan clubs I belong to dealing with super-hero's and the people that create them.
If your still around Erica please e-mail me.
I never missed a show. And this computer I'm using now even has a wallpaper up from the show Cleopatra 2525.

Yep, when last we heard from her, Erica had been...umm...err.... dancing in Japan, where she had made a ton of $$. She visted her family in Wellington just a few weeks after 9/11 happened, and saw her b'day thread, and (I'm still so flattered to recall) even participated in one for me! :bg: At the time I think she said she hoped to be able to travel to the U.S., most likely starting with Hawaii. But she also had a Brazilian boyfriend, I think, so she may have ended up there.

BTW - welcome to the Cleo board!!!!

It was indeed 8 years ago, Sat. evening of Dec. 23rd in the US, so mid-day Christmas Eve in Wellington, NZ, when the lovely Erica Hooper, aka the mutant bar stripper (and Napoleon's girl Candy on "Jack") chatted with Cleo and Jack fans!

Traci Lords was on Hercules? I didn't know that. Or I forgot. I'm sure it's been mentioned before. I know we've talked about her previously, with regard to the B-Movie version of "A Princess of Mars."

Yep, she was the main guest star in the 6th season episode Hercules Tramps and Thieves - she played the ex-wife of Autolycus,
a sexy cat burglar named Luscious DeLuxe. :p

At one point Herc catches her robbing a treasury, and says "You are so busted." She replies "Thank you - it's not the first time I've been told that." :laugh: I used to have the "so busted" sound clip as the error
message sound on my computer at work.

It was sort of a farewll ep for Auto - he and Luscious got back together, and the last time we see him, he and Herc have this exchange:

Quote:Herc: "Oh, don't worry. I helped her-- get a loan at the bank. As
soon as the paperwork goes through, this-- place will be hers."

Auto: "Wait-- let me get this right. The bank gives you money?"

H: "Sure-- with a viable co-signer and a clean credit rating,
you'll get a fixed term loan amortized over thirty seasons, which
is really-- preferable to an ARM, because it protects you from
fluctuating interest rates."

Auto: "What are the rates now?"

H: "8-and-a-half per cent."

Auto: "8-and-a-half? That's highway robbery! Say-- I gotta get
into this bank racket."

H: "Autolycus, I-- think you may have found your calling."

And indeed, it's now 17 years. :jawdrop: Having exhausted all existing images online from that episoide, instead I give you a classic song about stripping, from the film/musical Gypsy, in which Miss Electra,
dressy Tessie Tura, and Miss Mazeppa - who used ta be a schleppa - tell the young "gypsy" Louise about how to be a star in burlesque. The scene from the film is intercut with clips of other famous casts of the show, including Bernadette Peters! <3

I'm getting some cognitive dissonance seeing Julia McKenzie (Miss Marple) in those clips.

:bg: :p :lol: :laugh: :jester: Big Grin

Apparently that was from an all-star tribute to producer Cameron Mackintosh - unsure if if she has ever played that role, or if she was just there as part of a segment of Sondheim songs, since she has done a lot of his other plays.
