I shot with my good friend Sheena today. First time I'd seen her in 16 years. It was a good shoot, we laughed, talked, caught up and most of all got some amazing shots. You wouldn't know it from looking at her, but she's fearless.
I like fearless.
Speaking of fearless, I got accused of being "overconfident" or some shit like that this week by a stranger that I was trying to sell myself to as a potential client. If you can't be confident about your work, why bother? And it's NEWYORKFUCKINGCITY, everything here works that way. Rock stars, celebrities, club promoting assholes who 'hire' young women to sit and look pretty whilst their "clients" spend $12k on booze are REVERED here. I am not these people.
I was just trying to hire a publicist. Who got drunk and talked shit about me to my friends. After I left.
And said publicist, person who should know that THE WORD is powerful above all else (also in the form of emails and faxes), didn't once think that the only way I would find out about her shit talk, was - yep, my friends. Loyalty trumps potential money, I guess. I hope. I know.
Bad move, potential publicist. You could have had a client. Seriously.
So, any publicists out there reading this that are not douchebags? I require your services. Talk to me.
In the meantime, and totally unrelated:
Where will you go, when we all fall away?

"But you can’t talk to people, right?
You can’t tell a story
You’re tall, long legged
And your heart’s full of liquor
And me and everybody are just ice in a glass"
Think what you will.
What do you think?
I'm gonna run to the river...

Luxxus Press took delivery of the first edition paperback printing of my first monograph, "Some of This Is True" last week. The first printing is limited to 100 copies, is signed and numbered and comes with a little print. And a kiss.
Stay tuned for details about a book signing and after party.

I'm so mad. I can't believe you're sleeping. What a disappointment. You're being...you're not allowed to sleep this early. That's not alright. For what? For work?
I can't even sleep right now. I have to wake up in the morning. Ahhh. I'm contemplating coming into the city tomorrow.
You probably can't hear anything I'm saying because I'm mumbling and I'm laying in my bed and I'm leaning on the phone awkwardly and yawning instead of actually speaking.
In case you want to know. In case you want to know. In case you just
decide to randomly wake up and listen to this message and hate life.
In case you want to listen to this entire song that is about to end in a
few seconds because that's how long this message has been.
It's a good one too. Mmmm. I'll put it on a CD for you. Probably
not, actually. But I'll say I will 'cause, you know.
I'm really sorry about this. I'm like half awake and very, very - what's
the word, uhmm - anxious? No, antsy, ansty, there you go. Antsy to talk to
someone, though not antsy to move around. If that's even correct.
I really thought your answering machine was going to cut me off so I'll
just hang up.

Recently, I've seen:
food, fried up hard
I've seen things that made me smile
"Lost in the magic
From the last time
This town turning
My rose to desire"
