MMM Korean BBQSeattle, WA –- While I was back in Chicago a couple weekends ago, we had a special house guest, Midori. This was a real treat because it gave us an opportunity to finally get to know each other a little better. I met Midori a couple years ago on a photo shoot for Artana of Shot In The Dark. We've seen each other on several occasions since but this has generally been at events where neither of us had much of a chance to just kick back and chat. Although Midori had a busy schedule presenting classes at various venues in Chicago that weekend, we did get several chances to hang out. Highlights included shopping for pervertables after a superb Korean BBQ at a local market in the Logan Square neighborhood (photos) and stunt bottoming for one of her classes with my boy Derek, Ruff and a beautiful punk girl who's name I forgot to get permission to use.

MMM Korean BBQGiven a shared passion for rope and the Sm arts, you can imagine the topics of conversation over the weekend. I definitely came away from the experience with some wonderfully twisted new ideas and a closer friendship with Midori.

Midori is an expert rigger with wicked rope skills and one of the best educators/presenters I've ever seen. If you're in the mid-west, I highly recommend her full weekend intensive Rope Dojo coming to Kansas City October 18th & 19th from 10am to 6pm both days. Registration is open now through the end of the month, but space is limited to only thirty students so act fast. Cost is $350 for singles and $600 for pairs.

Here's a little teaser:
