Stuck On Earth presents Mardi Gras NYC style
March 15, 2003
Despite being an experience that was born deep in tradition, no one knows exactly how the Mardi Gras carnival came into being. Some scholars say it's origin can be traced to the orgies that were held in the Roman Empire - but then again, that could be pure speculation.
Nevertheless, we know that in the early 1700's the French of New Orleans were holding elaborate balls where guests were encouraged to wear a mask. But when the Spanish government took over, parties and street dancing were banned. Imagine that!
It wasn't until 1827, when Americans were in power, that the right to party in masks was restored, and with this new found freedom, elite parties began resurfacing again.
In many ways, this history parallels our own scene and culture and provides hope for our future. Come celebrate with us the joy that is music, and the spirit that is Mardi Gras!

Special Guest MC For the Night
Ron Jeremy- Hedgehog-LA (www.ronjeremy-themovie.com)
In 1978, Ron Jeremy's girlfriend sent a nude photo of him to "Playgirl Magazine", where he was instantly recognized for his natural attributes. They published it in a feature called "the boy next door", his "gift" not only got Ron attention from admiring female readers, but offers from adult film producers. Before long, this special education teacher, with a masters degree from Queens College, dropped everything to become a porn star. Ron's career in the adult industry has so far spanned over 20 years and 1600 titles, and counting. He not only appears in front of the camera, but directs and produces porn, consults on projects like "Boogie Nights" and "9 1/2 Weeks," and works a relentless stream of public appearances. Ron has been inducted into the X-Rated Critics Hall of Fame and his prints (handprints) are immortalized in cement on Sunset Boulevard. .Ron has been trying to get his legitimate acting career back on its feet and accepts even the briefest roles in mainstream films like "Detroit Rock City," "Killing Zoe," and "American Virgin."
We thought it would be great to add Ron to this event and make it more a memorable night, Ron will hanging out all night taking pictures and singing autographs
