Margaret Cho, bellydancer

Margaret Cho was already the coolest person on the planet, and a guru of the highest order, but now she has taken up bellydancing and my head is exploding with the cosmic beauty of it all. Thankfully, she has resumed blogging (having taken a break for filming a movie and the Assassin tour) and is sharing the journey with her fans.

Her blog is not archived by month, so just start here (6/13/05), and then find subsequent posts on the subject. She’ll take you from SoCal to Cairo (her trip to an Egyptian mall is a must read), as she attends dance festivals and classes. She weaves feminism, politics, image issues and more into the picture. Speaking of pictures, “Team Cho,” her support crew, have posted a photo of Margaret dancing.
