That’s all. Carry on.
Not that I’m going to die, but I haven’t been sick like this in years. I never get sick. No sniffles, no coughs – nothing. I’m sick now though. My ears are popping. My nose is dripping. And everytime I stand up I get dizzy and almost fall down.
We have a 2 day shoot this weekend that includes 14 models. That means we need to book 14 models. My inbox is insane at the moment.
I love something more than anything. That something is Technology. The newest gadgets, the innovative games, the new gaming systems – I love it all. Find me a boy who has more than 2 gigs of ram (and installs it himself) in his machine, and I’m in love for a life time! So, needless to say when Digital Life happened this weekend at the Javits Center – Matthew and I skipped there gleefully! Even more exciting – the Wii was there with a new game – Elebits! Wooo! Can the Wiimote be any sexier? I think not. Hurry November 19th! I said the word sexy so many times today. Highlights: Konami booth (Wii, Elebits, Castlevania), Sega (Sonic on DS), Dance Dance Revolution, Dell XPS M2010, Windows Vista, Alienware with their sexy doors, Logitech diNovo keyboard (PURE SEX – omg!), ATI’s 4 screen setup, Nvidia man trying to pick me up, My camera dying but hitting up the Kodak booth to recharge it, Printers that don’t work @ Tech convention, Robots, Pacman & Miss Pacman, Mcgruff the Crime Dog preventing cyber crimes, and oh yeah, Nintendo Wii.
Warning: Multimedia overload
We saw Jim Gaffigan tonight. He’s hilarious. I laughed and laughed.
I’m very excited for Halloween. It’s one of my favorite holidays, if not the favorite.
I bought Xanadu a spider costume today. She wasn’t impressed.
I am so excited for the Wii. I don’t think words can describe it. I sit at home and imagine getting a projector and open space and playing tennis for hours! I imagine performing major operations with my Wiimote. I imagine going to my imaginary friends houses and pulling my Wiimote out of my purse because I will carry it everywhere JUST IN CASE! I imagine becoming a pro bowler and getting strike after strike. I imagine a life filled with Nintendo and nothing else for a week straight when it comes out. I can’t wait! AHHHHHHHHH!
Watch these videos. I want to be that older Japanese woman so bad.
Today has been a day full of inspiration. Art is where everything stems from. It’s where you get inspired from, it’s what you reference, it’s why you make every choice you make, it’s why you make art. The history of art makes artists better. The majority of every successful commercial artist out there has a knowledgeable art history background. Every movie you love, every fashion editorial you see, every show this season, the new hot shoe – it’s referenced from somewhere in the art history books! I don’t think people realize how crucial this is to you "making it"… you need to know why you’re doing something. Moving on…
We saw "Cities in Transition" a three person show that is currently up in Madison Square Park. When you walk on 23rd and look at the park and see those giant prints – yes, that’s what it is. "American painter, photographer and print maker Chuck Close photographed New
York City. American photographer and filmmaker Mitch Epstein shot Boston. Indian
photographer Dayanita Singh, known for her portraits and landscape images,
captured Hartford. In this public art project, five images from each artist will look at how
urban America is evolving, such as the face of immigrants in New York, the
impact of the automobile on Boston and the changing landscape of Hartford." The show closes November 10th. I really enjoy Mitch Epstein’s work so anytime I get to see anything he does, I get exicted. The best part of the show was the park and nature lending it’s helping hands to the work. The way the leaves shadowed over the portraits, the way the sun leaned itself under the prints causing them to be backlit, the moving shadows breezing itself across….Go! It’s free! It’s great! It’s Mitch Epstein prints!
Today I went to the Steven Klein show that is happening at Wessel + O’Connor Gallery in DUMBO. The images include his "Valley of the Dolls" series with Mr. Tom Ford and interesting portraits of Brad Pitt (that look nothing like him). Go, enjoy, look, swoon – it’s free! It’s Steven Klein. It’s Brooklyn. What’s more to say.
Wessel + O’Connor is at 111 Front Street, Suite 200 Brooklyn.
A little over a year ago Pamela and I, by random DVD cover choosing, discovered the amazing visual adventure that is The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. Shortly after that I found out, by chance, that there was a true to the original remake made in 2005 and being shown at film festivals on the west coast. Most interesting of all however was that this version was made with dialogue unlike its silent brother. We both desperately wanted to see this new version but alas there was no outlet in New York City. Today, this changed.
