Every Other Day Of The Week Is Fine...



...yeah.

John Phillips was an amazing songwriter. And Michele Phillips was hot as a rocket. Still is. I'd shoot her in a heartbeat. Along with Gena Rowlands, Jacqueline Bisset, and Charlotte Rampling.

Charlotte Rampling...

Anyway, "California Dreamin'" is a masterpiece. One of the most depressing, haunting songs ever written. Curious how that misbegotten state pushes some of our finest writers to express sadness, confusion, longing and isolation - Chandler, Morrison, Eitzel and Phillips. Etc...

End of the week and I just checked out the Batman Blog listed to the right. Some freaks are claiming that they will post a photo from the Batman TV Series every day for a year. 365 Bat photos. Awesome, but man, there a a lot of folks out there with a lot of time on their hands.

I'm too busy for crap like that. Just sent two pieces to Detroit, and even though I'm not attending, seeing them yesterday at Duggal all printed beautifully made my week. I even rejected one and sent it back, which makes me feel like an artist. Or a prick.

My next publisher is coming to Brooklyn tomorrow to take a look through my archives - a daunting task - so that he can help determine what the focus of the monograph should be. At dinner last night, we talked about series', themes, years (Work, 2007) and whatnot. Mostly whatnot. Whatever whatnot is...

Got the medium format film back from the band shoot last weekend and I'm really happy with it. Really happy. There's gonna be a scanning party at my crib this weekend - come on over and bring some beer!
