OK/No Way...


...is a Mission of Burma song that's playing right now. I've been doing a lot of digitizing, and it's totally random. Spoon's "Gimme Fiction" is next, followed by The Replacement's "Stink" followed by Son Volt's "Trace."

The photo is of PJ Harvey. I stole it from the Interweb.

I've been doing a lot of thinking/talking with folks who's opinions I care about regarding my next steps. Hey, if you ain't shooting, you better be figuring out what to shoot next, right? Progress...

I need some celebrity shots in my book to get my name out there. I've got some connections, but in the next few days, I will be looking for more and exploring those that I have.

I know people who can probably get me in front of several prominent Williamsburg musicians, some Indie actors (hell, John Turturro and Jennifer Connelly live a block away from me and Steve Buscemi and Maggie Gyllenhaal are in the neighborhood...) and plenty of writers. It's Brooklyn – god, there are a shitload of writers...

So, we'll see...

I wanna shoot Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Iggy Pop, and Patti Smith.

"OK/No Way" is fantastic, but on this disc, "Forget" is the shit. "Forget" is one of the best songs ever recorded and it goes like this:

White walls
Tacked with papers
Confused by the details
Dangerous
They are just monuments
Demanding to get a reaction

When you are close to me
It is all right
When you are close to me
I can forget

People talk
And then disappear
I swerve
Just to miss their words
I stand upon this stupid platform
that I made with my own hands

When you are close to me
It is all right
When you are close to me
I can forget

Listen

I wanna shoot PJ Harvey too, but really I just want to fuck her.

Struggle.

OK? No Way.

Nick Cave is amazing. If you meet him in person, tell him I say hello ;-)

And interesting you picked that shot - she looks so much like Stephanie (the patty smith look alike remember?) ;-)

Sorry I didn't call. The weekend was one big blurr.

Still have your cd - will be back in the big apple soon enough...
