Stacks & Rats

Despite their reputation in political cartoons and at union protests, rats actually hate money. I spent more time than I’d care to admit trying to get Tatiana and Zéa to be the first rats to pose for Stacks & Rats. There was a lot of this:

I spent an embarrassingly long time trying to get them to hang out around the money and give me a good photo, and then I started to feel a little like a psycho pageant mom, insisting that her freaked out toddler smile big and look cute for the camera RIGHT NOW OR ELSE.

So I tried having them pose with my stripper shoes instead and had a little more luck. Here is Tatiana:

And Zéa:

Tatiana checking out my sex work books and stripper pole:

Natalie is a writer, editor and stripper from California who works there and in Las Vegas. She strapped on her first pair of seven-inch stilettos and never looked back, despite taunts from the bartender of "Why don't you brush your hair?" and "Grunge isn't cool any more." Ignoring those who were determined to crush her dreams, Natalie persevered, still doesn't brush her hair, and is doing pretty fuckin' fine nonetheless. Also, grunge will always be cool, and the bartender was eventually fired for being an asshole.


  1. Lol! The glamorous tatiana posing on a pair of platforms. I hope this paves the way for gerbils and stacks, mice and Cheddar, birds and Bills, etc.
