I am pleased to announce that the artist formerly/regionally known as Homorobics (currently going by the much more inclusive "Punk Aerobics") will be reborn starting THIS SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 9TH at 11 a.m.
It will be open to all, and held at the Center for Cartoon Studies Post Office Building
in beautiful White River Junction, Vermont.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Do I have to be a punk to attend this class?
No. In fact, squares are encouraged and celebrated.
Just as long as you can loosen up enough to do the Gangnam Style dance with us.
How is this different from a normal exercise class?
This class is meant to strengthen you and to emphasize fun, no weight loss.
We are open, accessible, and loving of all sorts of bodies and genders.
We believe we are unique in this mission statement.
When we started this class, we were down-trodden from the prevalence of body-shaming
propaganda at our local workout establishments.
We also noticed that our buddies, those of all sizes and punk persuasions, were not apt to attend such classes or environments, and HENCE, their bodies were going to seed, atrophy-wise.
We want you to have strong punk hearts so you can live a long time and do good work.
What your body looks like on the outside is fine however you want it to be fine.
It is also none of our business!
Will you play punk music?
If we feel like it.
We play an assortment of music from contemporary jams to dirty rap to feminist punk.
So what's the punk part?
It's a lifestyle, man.
It lives in our hearts, and we are so punk we have tattoos on our fingers, so that's something.
We may or may not pogo as points, but we don't want to feel bound to any rules of what punk is, because We Are So Punk and Rules Are Not!
We also feel that body positivity and eschewing societal norms of what genders and beauty should look like is pretty punk.
Is this actually a strenuous workout?
Have jocks attended your class and told you they were impressed?
What about wimps and weaklings?
They are also welcome.
Wimps and weaklings are welcome to adjust any exercise to meet their wimpy needs.
No judgment! Wimp on!
Just don't whine.
But we do like groans or yelps or grunts.
What sorts of things should we expect?
Bargain basement yoga
Light Tae Bo
Are you shipping in those other girls from the website?
What should we wear or bring?
Clean Sneakers. Nothing covered in the muck and mire of Vermont's dirty streets.
Real sneakers, no Converse. You need support. No kidding!
A water bottle for your self.
Bring a yoga mat, or a pilates mat, or 1-2 seriously fluffy towels.
We will be rolling around on the ground some times!
Nicole J. Georges and the Homorobics Team are not certified instructors.
We are exercise enthusiasts.
Attend and engage in all exercise at your own risk.
ALSO! Be Warned!
We may sometimes feel the spirit and make lewd jokes or play filthy music, so no minors. Not for the faint of heart!
Will this be fun?
YES. THIS WILL BE FUN.
Are you sure?
What good is it? What does this have to do with comics?
It is good for you to have a strong core. It is good for you to have a strong body. And to stretch that body. Especially if you are a hunch-backed, claw-handed cartoonist!!! Stretch it out and take a break and get some levity in your day!
