Generically Specific Update



- Thanks to all the well-wishers about my back, leg, sciatic nerve, epidural, medication, insurance coverage, locomotion in NYC, handicapped access areas in the city, general malaise. I am much better, thank you. I had a lengthy phone conversation with my "Nerve Specialist" (great name for a band) and he asked me the following questions: What was your pain level when you initially saw me on a scale of 1 to 10? I said, on good days an 8, all other times a 9. What is your pain level now, on a scale of 1 to 10? I said, about a 2. He said, well, that’s pretty dramatic. I said, I guess you are right! Stay tuned. 2 is still pain.

- I tried to jump out of an airplane on Saturday somewhere in Pennsylvania. They cancelled it Saturday morning due to "high winds." That's not something you want to argue about, stomp your feet about, be an asshole about. Kinda like when you are on a flight and they ground it due to "mechanical failure." I'm super okay with that. Thank the lord they told us instead of just crossing themselves and taking off (this does happen!) I love watching the dickheads that get really angry about all of that...there should be a "special plane" for them...

- I shot the LAST EVER "Chair" shot last night and it was incredibly gratifying. There is nothing like ENDING a series! Champagne toast (okay, it was Brooklyn Lager) to Sibyl and Lorraine and her Mom! So off the 29 shots go to the gallery guys...

- Music? Just got the new Marilyn Manson, The White Stripes and Rufus Wainwright. After a first listen to all, it's Rufus in 1st place, Brian in 2nd and Jack and Meg in a distant 3rd...

- Why doesn't Morrissey just get his shit right with Johnny Marr and suck the corporate cock and do The Smiths' Reunion and make bank? I'd go. Several times. Really - name another "must-see reunion" after The Pixies? I dare you..

- I REALLY miss Frank Zappa and Bill Hicks. And Amelia Earhart. I feel sorry for us.

- Lorraine with her swimsuit ON!
