Demented Pyramid Club-era video by Tom Rubnitz, starring Sister Dimension as Grandpa Hoofpynpoiers (sp?). RuPaul in her blacked-out tooth Bianca Dinkins, the imaginary mayor's daughter, pre-Supermodel look. And golly gosh! I've only got one chin in the mid 80's! Thanks to friendlier999 for alerting me to this on YOUTUBE!



"Tom Rubnitz died in the early 90's, but fortunately he left some video gems for us all to aspire to. "Pickle Surprise" features some of my favorite Downtown performers inclduing the magical Sister Dimension, The Lady Bunny, Ru Paul, David Dalrymple, Lahoma Van Zandt and Maria Ayala. "

And let's not forget Tom's incredible painting of Carol Channing, which hangs in my home. She actually autographed the treasure when we worked together in Central Park at some forgotten fagfest! Not that I'd be luring burglars to my home. Well, maybe if they were well-hung burglars?

Hi Ms. Bunny! I ran across Pickle Surprise on YouTube not long ago and became obsessed with it and with Strawberry Shortcut. They're both imbued with such original, subversive joy and I hope they were as fun to make as they are to watch. Kudos on all your pioneering work! The South is proud of you.
