INIQUITY NEWS FOR THE MONTH OF
Hello Everyone and WELCOME to the New INIQUITY LIST-SERVE!
About time, aye?
If you notice the different format to the header it is because we are now
reporting from a formal list-serve by way of our good friends at Slave Labor
Productions, who also host the INIQUITY website.
You will see the SLP plug at the very bottom if you ever want to know more
about them or their products. :-)
SLP is also partly responsible for the upcoming SAN FRANCISCO FETISH BALL
which is NEXT WEEKEND with pre-parties starting THIS THURSDAY!!!

NONETHELESS, if you ever need to correspond with the Editor of INIQUITY NEWS for any reason (ideas, suggestions, complaints, praises, a good suggestion for a restaurant, or whatever), you can always write to:

REST ASSURED that we still retain complete control over the INIQUITY LIST and it is NEVER, EVER shared with ANYONE! If there is one thing our record will show it is that we are very firm believers in PRIVACY! :-)
The Best Part about the new IQ List Serve is that we will be able to report
Fetish Goings-On MUCH (as in MUCH) more easily From Anywhere In The World as
well as Get You The News in a significantly more timely manner! Yee-haw!
(Like we said, ABOUT TIME!!!)
ON TO THE MAIN SHOW....
In this quick Update we have 3 pertinent NEWS ITEMS to get to you:
1) A CONTEST we are holding for the Digital Artists out there with a CASH PRIZE!!!
2) A PAID POSITION open for a Once-A-Month JOB in the Fetish Universe.
3) A REVIEW of last Saturday's CARNAVALE DE SADE (which includes an APOLOGY for certain, er, "sound problems" from those responsible, heh).
(and you can read the Even Stricter April CDS Dress Code at the bottom). ;-)
ITEM 1: CONTEST
Ever design a flyer? A really cool 4-color business card perhaps?
INIQUITY and CARNAVALE DE SADE are hereby announcing the CONTEST for a New
Semi-Permanent Flyer for CARNAVALE DE SADE. The Winner will receive $50
(fifty bucks) straight-up!
DETAILS -- send us a sample of some piece of artwork with or without text that you feel represents your Digital Art skill. It does NOT have to be a
previous flyer at all. Could be pure doodling for all we care, as long as it is something that makes for good flyer art.
Keep in mind that CARNAVALE DE SADE has TWO Overwhelming Themes
-- FETISH FASHION
-- EXTREME PERFORMANCE ART
For this reason the eventual design will require that one side of the flyer have one of these two themes and the second side have the remaining theme.
INIQUITY can help with images to a SMALL degree. In the mean time, if you want to throw some imagery into your design that has these themes then it will likely increase your chances of winning.
From all entries we will pick those whom we feel are closest to what we are looking for and send you the exact text and details of the actual flyer.
Other things to consider in your design choices: A Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus vibe or theme, colorful design, a design that will be easy to print text over (i.e. high contrast with text should be possible).
IF YOU WISH TO ENTER THIS CONTEST THEN SEND IN YOUR INITIAL ARTWORK SAMPLE ASAP!
The winner will be announced to all INIQUITY readers, and their name (as chosen) will be printed on the flyer on top of receiving the $50 prize.
ALL ENTRIES that come close to what we want will receive honorable mentioning in a desired form -- website mention, name only, business name,
YOU'VE GOT THE TALENT, NOW LET THE WORLD SEE IT! :-D (and become part of the INIQUITY family at the same time = possible future
paid work + perks). :-)
ITEM 2: FETISH JOB -- DOORMAN
Straight-up: Carnavale De Sade is looking for a serious Doorman. You or
your friend does NOT have to be a 6' 6" giant, but the person applying MUST
be familiar and A-OK with the BDSM Community and what we do, even if they do
not do it themselves. It is VERY advantageous if the Doorman is well versed
in Fetish Fashion although this is NOT essential as this can be explained.
Pay is a straight-forward $75 per gig.
The Doorman will be the Primary individual responsible for CHECKING THE DRESS CODE of each Patron, and equally refusing admission to those improperly attired. Of course this must be done POLITELY so Doorman applicants should obviously have excellent social skills. Equally the
Doorman will be responsible for making sure arriving guests are aware of the zero-tolerance for unauthorized cameras.
Basically the Doorman will remain up front for most or all of the night. Applicant must have attire that fits with the Dress Code; wearing such
under an overcoat is fine is the weather requires. In rare cases the Doorman may be needed to come back into the venue to assist with an odd
security problem although the actual real occurrence of such events in the almost 7 years of INIQUITY has been between slim & none.
Thus the INIQUITY / CARNAVALE DE SADE Doorman is mostly a Presence to insure a cohesive evening. Relief personal will be available for bathroom runs and short breaks. The job runs between 6-7 hours depending on the gig. CDS is a 6 hour (+) run starting at 9pm.

Subject Line: "Doorman"
ITEM 3: CDS Review (and Apology!)
The 5th CARNAVALE DE SADE was better attended than ever! This was sort of amazing as, due to an administrative glitch, we used nothing but e-mail advertising. It looks like the reputation of CDS is finally getting out there!
The crowd trickled in a little slower than last month despite the end totals
of the night being higher. Some juggling of the space heaters allowed us to
keep the venue nice and toasty, with a sort of dance between which ones were on and which ones were off to keep the heat balanced and not excessive within the venue.
Two big changes occurred at this, the 5th CARNAVALE DE SADE. The first of course was the implementation of the Dress Code (FINALLY!) which started with "No Blue Jeans & No Gym Shoes." Everyone agreed that the Entire Crowd looked Ten Times Better than before, and it made the whole event have a much classier feel. Perhaps the best part as a promoter is that with the exception of only a few people whom we had to refuse admission, everyone came properly attired. Hold on to your horses folks, because next CDS the Dress Code gets Even Tighter, and Even BETTER!
(See Below For the EVEN STRICTER DRESS CODE for the April CDS!)
The second change was a try-out of a new music style. To replace the
traditional Trance mix by DJ X-ray, who will no longer be working at CDS, we
brought in a break-beats DJ, DJ Scott, to spin alongside DJ Henry Self and his incredible Industrial-Rave mix. Henry Self was as magnificent as ever, and DJ Scott gave it his best. Unfortunately the crowd did not seem to respond as well to DJ Scott's break-beats, so we are going to take it back to a more traditional Industrial-Rave/Trance/House mix at CDS 6 in April. Plans also include a fog machine for more atmosphere on the dance floor.
The number of scenes that night was overwhelming and almost every room was
being used for one form of naughtiness or another all night long. The
suspension show went off without flaw, however the one major glitch of the night occurred immediately following. It seems Joey Strange's band, "The
Horse You Rode In On," did not get a chance to do a proper sound check before their show. On top of that, the five musicians all use separate,
disconnected amps with no central mixing board. Unfortunately the end result was that the music was so loud and so distorted that it literally caused
people to not only leave the room, but quite a few called it a night as there was no place in the building to escape the volume and the distortion.
I, Arcane, personally walked up to Joey in the middle of his show and shouted into his ear that it was too loud. Joey turned to me in the middle
of playing and replied, "WHAT????" Realizing that things were not right the band graciously cut their performance short.
For the guests and patrons who found the band's music to be so loud and
distorted that it in any way affected your night in a negative fashion, Joey
and his band want to issue a PUBLIC APOLOGY. Take it from me, Arcane -- When Joey and his band played at the 3rd CDS in January, their sound levels were flawless and the music was EXCELLENT! It was simply a matter of a technical mix-up that resulted in the problems last Saturday night.
Although we sadly saw several patrons leave early due to the loudness
problem described above, overall as usual people stayed and played until
3a.m. It was an experimental night, a fun night, and another successful event overall. CARNAVALE DE SADE 6 in April is guaranteed to be EVEN BETTER. Stay tuned for details....
